I saw quite a bit of it.
I don't think they proved Murder 2...and last I heard the Prosecution is asking that the jury be allowed to consider Manslaughter.
My bet, though, is that he's found guilty if only because of the societal pressure.
I will say this:
Watching the trial has been a very educational experience for me. This is what anyone can face in a similar situation.
What if George had been wearing one of those "Cold Dead Hands" or Anti-Obama t-shirts they sell at the gun shows?
What if he had a "Make My Day" bumper sticker on his car - or that "We Don't Call 911" sticker on his front door?
What if he'd been carrying something cocked and locked as opposed to a long pull DA (I have a P-11)? The prosecution made quite a deal just out of his having a round chambered.

All these things would stack up against you fast and large.

There are many lessons to be learned from all of this.
