After four weeks of trial, closing arguments began on Thursday in the trial over the killing of Trayvon Martin. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda aimed to prove that George Zimmerman racially profiled Trayvon Martin on the night of his murder. Quoting Zimmerman on the recorded 911 call, he said that calling Martin an "asshole" and a "fucking punk" shows a deep-seated motivation other than self-defense.
