On day two of the trial, prosecutors in Florida pushed to introduce nearly 50 calls made by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman to police over an eight-year period, prior to his fatal confrontation with Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman, 29, called police frequently to report such things as slow vehicles, loitering strangers in the neighborhood and open garages. Prosecutors want to introduce recordings of some of those calls, saying they are indicative of Zimmerman’s aggresiveness in pursuing people he considered to be suspicious—and of his state of mind on the night he shot unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to the murder charges, claiming he shot Martin in self-defense.
