(CNN) - George Zimmerman had already decided Trayvon Martin was a criminal when he spotted him walking through his Sanford, Florida, neighborhood, prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda told jurors in closing arguments of the former neighborhood watch volunteer's murder trial.
"I think it was a very effective presentation," said CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin, who was in the courtroom and watched the jury carefully during the de la Rionda's closing arguments.
"They were with him, they were watching, they were listening. Even the ones that normally take these copious notes just listened," said Hostin. Jurors began taking notes during the middle and end of de la Rionda's presentation, when he pointed out inconsistencies in Zimmerman's statements.
The defense wanted this case to be about self-defense, but the prosecution was able to change that narrative, said Hostin.
"The prosecution took control of the narrative and said, 'This is about who started it. This is about George Zimmerman making assumptions that were wrong, chasing, tracking an innocent young boy.' And I thought that was very, very effective," said Hostin.
(CNN) - Shortly after Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed in San Francisco, passengers and witnesses pleaded with 911 responders to send help - some frantically, some insistently.
"I'm reporting an airplane crash at SFO (San Francisco International Airport)," an early witness said in calls released by the California Highway Patrol.
"An airplane crash at SFO?" a dispatcher asked.
"Yeah. We were hiking on a trail outside Pacifica and we heard a giant explosion and ... an airplane had crashed right there at SFO."

Another caller dialed 911, thinking the response was taking too long.
"We still don't see any firemen or anything," another witness said.
