The defense makes their closing arguments in the trial of George Zimmerman asking the jury to put their sympathy for the family of Trayvon Martin aside, and find their probably guilty client innocent.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is resigning from the Obama administration to become the president of the U of California system. (The students are just gonna LOVE her new on-campus TSA policies!)
