No, it isn't "more reasonable". Dee Dee heard the exchange with Zimmerman on the phone and didn't mention anything about the threatening way the question was asked in her testimony. I see a couple of obvious possible reasons for this:

1) it didn't actually happen like that.


2) the prosecutor, during his questioning of Dee Dee, neglected to highlight that Zimmerman threatened Martin first, thus justifying his assault on Zimmerman.

I leave it as an exercise to our readers to determine which of those (or whatever additional possible reasons they can think of) is most likely.
