    I’m just beginning to get up to speed on purple drank. One of the first questions to pop into my head relates to Zimmerman’s statement on the police call that Martin appeared to be ‘on drugs’.

    Serino asked Zimmerman about this in the last SPD interview, on 2/29.

    2/29-3, 1:32-41

    Serino: On drugs, why?

    Zimmerman: Oh, because he just kept looking around, looking behind him, looking, just kept shifting where he was looking.

    Is the behavior Zimmerman described commonly associated with purple drank intoxication?

      I think the more appropriate question would be, IS the behavior Zimmerman described commonly associated with burglars using purple drank intoxication?
      It is important to note that the job of a good prosecutor is to find inconsistencies in a defendant’s testimony (the existence of inconsistencies by itself is not proof of guilt since few of us would stand up to the scrutiny of a good interrogator without a lawyer under any circumstances, much less after defending one’s life from a brutal attack).
      SMALL inconsistencies would be expected of anyone who has been questioned for days after such a horrific event (and those were the kinds of inconsistencies they found with GZ, SMALL ONES).
      The parents of Trayvon Martin have provided inconsistencies so large you could drive a truck through them and they have NOT been questioned yet (their parental neglect has largely been ignored despite its being a potential felony).
      And by the way, seeing as the preliminary tox reports show Trayvon was on drugs (and they are still withholding the complete toxicology reports) AND that Trayvon had both brain damage AND liver damage from excessive drug use at a very young age, I would sugest that George may not have bene able to descroibe well how he knew trayvon was on some powerful AND dangerous drugs, he just knew it in his heart, in his gut. It was his instincts that told him Trayvon was on drugs (and his behavior that toild him trayvon was casing the neighborhod for a burglary). And his schol records indicate this would not have been the first time Trayvon was caught with stolen jewelery AND a burglary tool.
      .
      The biggest confusion with these cough syrup concoctions (even here at the treehouse) is the type of drug that these concoctions represent. Your drank mixture contains the drugs you put in it. if you use a codeine or opiate based cough syrup, you get an opiate high and when you take the cough syrup that has an active ingredient that gives off a pcp like high, then that is what you get. The active ingredient in most over the counter cough syrups is DXM and this stuff not only gives a pcp like high, it also gives false positives for pcp use amongst its users (and it messes up your brain and liver big time if you take copious amounts of it).
      It should also be noted that almost every rap musician who has written songs glorifying drank or lean use has died from overdose or gun violence, but i bet they will be eager to pin that on GZ, also.

    Daily Daft Post From Justarse Quest

    It seems RZ has said something on Twitter about possible civil law suits?
    Whatever it is has given at least some of the JQ posters pause to think about the libellous stuff they post.

    It’s mostly paranoia I think, but the discussion on this subject highlights a few interesting points.

    Traybots are not so much worried about the HATE that they post… just worried about RZ (and others) seeing it. (Of course the creation of the secret Trayvon Zone Sewer came from that line of thinking)

    I doubt they get it, but it shows that on some level the KNOW that what they post is hate and that it may well cause harm.

    The solution offered by some alpha cretins is to simply put “IMO” or “JMO” in a post… then you can post anything you like, true or not, because “IMO” means it’s an “opinion” and you cant be held accountable for those!! (What do they smoke over there??)

    Seems NONE of them have thought of the most obvious solution… POST THE TRUTH.

    You can not be sued for libel if what you write is the truth… those worried should perhaps just stop posting lies and unsubstantiated supposition… that would work… move along… no law suit here, we only post the truth!

      If they could only grasp the simple concept of posting the TRUTH when it comes to identified persons, they would not have to hide this and other discussion forums away in a secret sewer.
      It is daft to imagine that a “Members Only” area is in real terms not public anyway.
      ANYBODY can register as a member of of JQ, and clearly there are no real checks or standards as to who is accepted as a member. It is obvious from the posting that there are people who are “psychologically damaged”, and in a few cases, people who clearly have psychiatric problems and illnesses. It is known that criminal types (paedophiles and the like) are drawn to “True Crime” sites, and just in terms of statistical probability there are likely some very dubious types who are members of JQ.
      So…. members only area…….. not so elite as they pretend.

              Some heard loud noises as if arguing, but couldn’t make anything out. For all you know, what they thought was arguing was the procession of the fight and grunting/yelling.

                Exactly. The one witness who seemed to hear things the best, described it as you noted. And so under the assumption that she was fairly accurate, it matched almost exactly with what George said. And so no reason to believe the other witnesses (who heard things LESS clearly than the first witness) actually heard a long drawn-out “arguing”, as opposed to a combination of the verbal confrontation AND the beginning of the physical conflict.

          Oh, shucks; another ad hominem.

          …but the 2 are mutually exclusive.

          Mutuallly exclusive!

          I’ll type extra slowly for you this time, because I’m about to get into some seriously deep logic:

          In order for Zimmerman to have started a fight, he would have to have been engaged in a fight. If Zimmerman was never engaged in a fight, then it is impossible for him to have started a fight.

          A fight requires two participants. Two participants would result in physical injuries sustained by both parties.

          Martin exhibited no physical injuries, commensurate with a fight, whatsoever. Zimmerman, on the other hand, exhibited considerable physical injuries. Zimmerman’s physical injuries were caused by Martin.

          If Zimmerman wasn’t engaged in a fight, then the injuries he sustained were caused in a one-sided physical altercation, otherwise known legally as an assault.

          There was no fight; there was only an assault.

          Zimmerman’s injuries (especially the broken nose), and the description by multiple eye-witnesses of how Martin caused those injuries (a sustained, relentless assault while Zimmerman was screaming for help), prove that Martin committed a felony aggravated battery against Zimmerman.

          Under Florida statute, use of lethal force in self defense is justified in order to prevent the commission of a felony.

          In order to prove that Zimmerman does not have immunity on the basis of self-defense, the State will, at a minimum, have to prove, with a preponderance of the evidence, that Zimmerman was the physical aggressor.

          So, please present evidence that Zimmerman was the physical aggressor in this altercation.

          But going even farther than that: in order to prove that Zimmerman does not have the right to claim self-defense even if he was the aggressor, the State would have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman did not attempt to remove himself from the altercation, and that he did not reasonable fear imminent risk to his life or significant bodily harm.

          Zimmerman repeatedly tried to get up from underneath Martin, but Martin knocked him down each time. Zimmerman screamed for help, and for Martin to stop, for at least the 40 seconds captured in the 911 recording. Zimmerman had already sustained a broken nose, and was having his head repeatedly knocked into the ground. Zimmerman had a taller, stronger, more physically fit person straddling him, pinning him to the ground, beating him in the head and face.

          Where is the evidence that Zimmerman did not attempt to remove himself from the altercation?

          Where is the evidence that a person would not reasonably fear imminent risk to life or significant bodily harm in that scenario?

          the evidence released by the state is all over the internet. they have posted all the tapes. many witnesses heard arguing, most said it was too dark to see, or they were afraid.

          I recommend that you go back and re-read the witness statements. Pay careful attention to the witness sketches, as well as the description of relative orientation of the “person in red” versus the “person in white/gray”.

          the liitle child witness walked around to the other side of the house because o the noise. zimmerman’s last interview on the 27th. he was asked 2x about arguing. he said “no arguing”.

          Rumpole has this one covered.

          you zimmemran fans anser to all that is they’re all lying.

          Oh look: another straw man.

          The only person even remotely suspected/accused of lying is Mary Cutcher, who self-servingly recanted/changed her testimony.

      Some witnesses are more reliable than others.
      The more a witness’s testimony changes, the less reliable that testimony is percieved in most cases.

      George Zimmerman wont need to testify. He already gave statement for three days WITHOUT the benefit of a lawyer even though that was his right as well as taking multiple lie detector tests.
      Among the realities you prolly never considered, but that I find mighty ironic is:
      Though George had the guts to be interviewed without a lawyer for days,
      the main cop who interveiwed George, when he was to be interviewed oin how he conducted himself in this case, he was so afraid, he couldnt do the interview WITHOUT an attorney present as GZ had (GZ has brass balls bigger than the persecutor bdlr AND the lead investigator serino).
      .
      I bet you are blind to how it hurts the case that not is the lead investigator discredited, but also that most fo the cops that worked the scene that night will be witnesses for the defense.
      .
      trayvon’s parents spent so much time attacking the cops that know the cops must let the world know that they did a good job at the scene, they recognized right away who was the thug and who was the victim. trayvon martin was only a victim of parental neglect while GZ was and is a victim of unbridled African American racism.
      .

      Zimmerman can cry about his bloody face all he wants. It means there was a fight…

      A fight requires two participants. A fight would result in physical injuries to both parties, commensurate with mutual physical interaction.

      Martin had no such injuries.

      This wasn’t a fight; it was a one-sided beatdown.

      The instigator of a fight is mutually exclusive of who started the fight.

      I don’t think you understand the meaning of either instigator or mutually exclusive.

      Martin instigated the verbal confrontation (verified by State’s star witness, Dee Dee). Martin broke Zimmerman’s nose. No evidence whatsoever exists that Zimmerman ever swung on, much less ever touched, Martin.

      The Child…

      You mean, the 17-year-old, over six-feet-tall, fight-club refereeing…

      …Trayvon was running away from Zimmerman , that’s what Zimmerman told 911.

      Yes, as corroborated by State’s star witness, Dee Dee, Martin successfully eluded Zimmerman, and ended up all the way back near Brandi Green’s house.

      So how, pray tell, did a verbal confrontation and physical altercation between the two then later take place at the sidewalk “T” some 70 yards north of Brandi Green’s house – the same sidewalk “T” that falls right along the east-west route that Zimmerman claims to have taken?

      The Child…

      You mean, the 17-year-old, over six-feet-tall, fight-club refereeing…

      …is not the aggressor. End of Story.

      So, we have:

      – Dee Dee and Zimmerman both stating that Martin had eluded visual contact by Zimmerman
      – Dee Dee stating that Martin had reached the vicinity of Brandi Green’s house
      – Dee Dee stating that Martin refused run
      – Dee Dee and Zimmerman both stating that Martin started the verbal confrontation
      – The location of Martin’s body, and the various personal effects of both Martin and Zimmerman – not least importantly of which are Zimmerman’s keys and flashlight – was not near Brandi Green’s house, but rather at the sidewalk “T”
      – Zimmerman exhibited a broken nose, lacerations to his head, bruising to his face, swelling of his head, and copious amounts of blood
      – Martin exhibited scrapes on his knuckles, and the fatal gunshot wound, but not a single physical defensive injury
      – Multiple eye-witnesses stated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman
      – Not one single eye-witness stated that Zimmerman was ever in a position other than beneath Martin
      – At least one eye-witness stated that Zimmerman made several attempts to extricate himself from his pinned-down position, and that each time, Martin knocked Zimmerman back to the ground, so that he could continue beating Zimmerman.

      If Martin wasn’t the aggressor, how did the altercation take place at the sidewalk “T”, after Martin had successfully eluded Zimmerman, and had reached the vicinity of Brandi Green’s house?

      If Martin wasn’t the aggressor, why did Martin have no physical defensive injuries?

      If Martin wasn’t the aggressor, why did he pin ZImmerman to the ground, and repeatedly prevent him from getting up and escaping, while sustaining his “MMA-style” beatdown?

      and we know zimmerman has a history of “chasing” after people from a wal-mart incident.

      Zimmerman’s word is not trustworthy. He’s got a problem of trust with the security firm, He’s got a problem of trust with the Judge, He’s got a problem of trust with his cousin, He’s got a problem of trust with his ex-Girl Friend, He’s got a problem of trust with his former school, He’s got a problem of trust at his former workplaces, He’s got a problem of trust with his creditors, He’s got a problem of trust in his previous police arrests.

      Most of this is specious, demonstrably refutable drivel. All of it is utterly irrelevant.

      He instigated a fight against a Child…

      You mean, a 17-year-old, over six-feet-tall, fight-club refereeing…

      …the Child…

      You mean, the 17-year-old, over six-feet-tall, fight-club refereeing…

      …kicked his behind, Zimmerman only prior experience in fights was slapping, and punching women.

      Untrue, and irrelevant even if it were true.

      His 2 year old…

      lolwut?

      …butt found an 11th grader too much too handle.

      So you admit that Martin had established sufficient disparity of force to cause Zimmerman not to want to be involved in the physical altercation?

      That might be the most prescient thing you’ve said here, ever.

      Zimmerman fits the profile of a loser looking to be somebody.

      Are you really sure you want to play the fits the profile of… game with respect to the parties involved in this altercation?

      Soon he will be a convicted murderer of a child…

      You mean, a 17-year-old, over six-feet-tall, fight-club refereeing…

            Vandalism and Juvenile Crimes in Miami, Florida

            In many cases, criminal mischief involves juvenile offenders. If your child is currently facing criminal charges for graffiti or vandalism, involving an experienced juvenile defense attorney as soon as possible is crucial. Although the juvenile justice system is geared toward rehabilitation rather than punishment alone, you will need a lawyer to protect your child’s rights and ensure they are given the opportunity to handle the underlying situation that caused the arrest or offense, rather than facing excessively harsh penalties.

    So Mr. Brown admits there was a fight and that GZ was injured.

    Hmmmm, well Mr. Brown you have over played your hand none of this matters. You see in the law of Self Defense as I know it there is a line and that line is where a reasonable person believes that his/her life is in danger. Trayvon sat mounted on GZ slamming his head into the ground this would leave any rational person to believe that death could result from such activity.
    I read the Florida Statute on Self Defense and I will provide the link(http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String&URL=0700-0799/0776/Sections/0776.013.html) There is nothing here about mutual combat.
    So let’s say for the sake of argument that Trayvon had Stood His Ground fair enough but where he went from defending himself to Aggravated Assault was the moment he continued to strike GZ as GZ was incapacitated or on his back under Trayvon. So no matter what happend up until Trayvon had the upper hand really matters because at some point he had defeated George yet choose to continue to injure him when he could have easily held him down until police arrived.

    Even in your version of the story(which I do not believe) George was justified in shooting and killing Trayvon Martin.

I haven’t been able to find it, but I’m guessing it extends the special prosecutor’s authority to crimes related or arsing from George’s case, in an attempt to cure the quo warranto problem.

            I’d think that even if it’s what I think it might be, the special prosecutor might have to start Shellie’s case over again, because at the time the case was initiated, the special prosecutor may not yet have had the authority. Perhaps the executive order attempts to make the authority retroactive, or just “clarifies” executive order 12-79 to say they had the authority all along. Of course, I’m just speculating about all this.

It still leaves the questions of what occurred here unexplained. O’Mara is going to have to subpoena the ABC recordings. I’m sure Matt will be very cooperative.

        This whole thing is truly just pathetic and is yet another demonstration of the weakness in the beliefs of Crump et al. in Georges guilt. If they were confident in their beliefs there would be a very clear line to information like this recording but all we see is obfuscation, stonewalling and deception. Nothing is simple with these people because they are so full of S***. Matt will play the same game.

In order to compel disclosure of the identity of an anonymous source or unpublished information, a court or other legal body must find that three conditions are met: (1) the information is relevant and material to unresolved issues in the case; (2) the information cannot be obtained from alternative sources; and (3) a compelling interest exists for requiring disclosure of the information. The results of this kind of balancing test would be different depending on the facts of the particular case.”

The main thing is to show that everything about her, her interviews and statements, and how they came to be… EVERYTHING is a major component of the conspiracy against George.

      From listening to the new release at gz legal:

      Part 2: there is an obvious redaction at about :40

      Part 2 at 1:25: Trayvon was waiting (presumably under the mail thing) for the rain to go down. It seems to me that this is fundamentally inconsistent with GZ’s version where Trayvon is walking or running at all times when observed by GZ. I don’t think GZ ever stated that he observed Trayvon sheltering under the mail shed. DD states that Trayvon also put his hoodie on, which was already on as shown by the 7-11 video. There is an obvious edit at 1:48 and 1:50. At 2:40, Crump curiously calls for God to bless Sybrina and Tracy for getting DD on the phone, as if it took a lot of effort. This is not apparent from the FDLE interview reports for Sybrina and Tracy.

      It seems to me that the beginning of the narrative was edited out of Part 3 as it seems to begin midstream. @ 1:35, Crump clarifies that the last thing that DD heard was “what are you doing around here”. There is no mention of “get off get off”.

      Part 3 @ 2:20 – DD says that Trayvon described GZ as “a big white dude” GZ at the time of the shooting, was neither big nor white. It seems to me that “big white dude” might have been concocted based on errant media reports of GZ as being white and 250 lbs. The “big white dude” transformed into a crazy creepy old white man at the BDLR interview. The common concept is that they are attempting to posture Trayvon as being scared. In the Crump interview, Trayvon is scared because a “big white dude” is following him. By the time of the BDLR interview, it is apparent that GZ is not the 250 lb. “big dude” mentioned by the media, so to keep him scary, he becomes crazy and creepy.

      Part 7 @ :28 DD mentions Arizona ice tea, which is, of course, false and derived from errant media reports. The significant thing here is that it is not obviously fed to her by a leading question, as in the BDLR interview.

      Also, I didn’t notice any reference to rushing for half time of the basketball game in the Crump interview. Was that concocted later?

  48. You all have to understand how lawyers work in small firms. Most are horribly backward in terms of technology. Even with computers, many lawyers are still using Windows 98 and XP Service Pack 1.

    Most do NOT have the capability to capture and preserve evidence when they have staff or themselves conduct “investigations.” Most buy a cheap digital camera and keep it in a drawer, to use on those rare occasions where they need to take a pic.

    With recordings it is even worse. Most lawyers do NOT have equipment suitable for recording phone calls or taking recorded statements. Heck, most lawyers do NOT know the law on surreptitiously recording conversations. (Some states are single consent, others mutual. Single consent means that one party only has to approve the recording or “eavesdropping.” Since the recorder constitutes a party to the recording, surreptitious recordings are allowed. Here in California it is mutual consent, so both sides have to consent to recording. That is why you hear when calling a service department “for quality control your call may be recorded.”)

    Anyway, I don’t know the law in Florida, but if it is mutual consent, did Crump get ON THE RECORDING consent from DeeDee to record her statement? If not, the recording may be kept out on that basis, especially if Crump made the recording with the intent of turning it over to law enforcement. According to case law he may have been acting as an agent of the police so he would be bound by the laws that limit police wiretaps and recordings. Just an aside, thinking out loud.

    Back to Crump. The reason the recording is so crappy is because either he did NOT have a recorder and bought one at Walgreens, or he had this el cheapo recorder to keep in a drawer or use for occasional notes to file.

    This was not a professional device, obviously, so you have to think of how this was done. I doubt the recorder an an external mic port, so any recording would have been done by Crump holding the device up to the speaker when the land line was on speakerphone mode, or he held it up to the phone earpiece.

    Either way, the recording quality is going to be horrible. For one thing, the mic on these el cheapo devices are not meant to record sounds emitting from other electronic devices, such as phones. Second, they don’t have the capability to drown out (cancel) background noise. End result, a recording like that Crump produced that day, and that he played ON THE DEVICE during his presser (see my YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86QQnKMuUmk )

    Also, remember to follow the money, follow the motive. At the time he made this recording Crump was desperate to get Zimmerman arrested and charged. This recording was included in Crump’s fabrication, destruction, and hiding of evidence. (E.g., Ask Crump at depo if he took pics of Trayvon Martin’s hands while the body was at Kurtz’s funeral home. Crump has pics of Trayvon Martin’s cuts on his knuckles.)

    Very few law offices are equipped to make professional audio quality recordings. All it takes is getting a recorder with an external mic jack and one of those suction cup phone recording devices ($3 at Radio Shack). And then the lawyer has to know where to put it on the phone handset (it goes in the middle, so the device can record BOTH the person recording and the person called).

    Given Crump’s low IQ (he really is dumb as a rock) I suspect he had a hell of a time figuring out how he was going to record the call, so that everyone in the room could hear it. He knew that he could record it with a free Android app (call recording software) but then he would not be able to let Gutman in on the action. That’s why I assume this recording was simply Crump putting the device next to another phone, that was on speaker phone mode. End result, the crap we hear today, unprofessional, the same as Crump.

      Hey Mike*, where ya been? And that’s some very interesting points about the tape, but what really caught my attention is this: “Ask Crump at depo if he took pics of Trayvon Martin’s hands while the body was at Kurtz’s funeral home. Crump has pics of Trayvon Martin’s cuts on his knuckles.” Sounds like you’re not just speculating about this. Hmm….

      Some states are single consent, others mutual.

      I believe Florida requires all parties to consent:

      934.03(3)(d): It is lawful under ss. 934.03-934.09 for a person to intercept a wire, oral, or electronic communication when all of the parties to the communication have given prior consent to such interception.

      If not, the recording may be kept out on that basis, especially if Crump made the recording with the intent of turning it over to law enforcement.

      I don’t see how it comes into evidence, no matter what. I can’t think of a Florida hearsay exception that would apply. The only likely use I can see is for impeachment as prior inconsistent statements, and obviously the defense would like it to be available for that purpose. Even if there were a hearsay exception, if the state tried to use the recording in place of DeeDee’s testimony, I think it would be excluded by the 6th Amendment. I’m not aware of any cases that considered whether interviews not done by the state can be testimonial hearsay, but under the circumstances, I don’t see any other conclusion.

      I have questioned the autopsy report from Day 1. As a practicing medical professional for years, that autopsy screams “WTH!” to me: Numerous omissions, breach of protocol, and misinformation. As with chain of custody records, a record from door-to-door (The minute TM’s body was signed into the ME offices until the minute he was signed out) should have been included in the report. It was not.
