      The hypocrisy is hysterical, considering the legion of their ilk who have made up their mind regarding George’s guilt.

      The reality is: most of us approached this case from a perspective lacking in prejudice toward either Zimmerman or Martin. (Those like me personally developed initial interest in this case from the perspective of prejudice toward the media and race-baiters who drove the initial narrative.)

      For us, any assessment of the guilt or innocence of Zimmerman developed from an evaluation of the actual evidence in the case: the physical/forensic evidence and eye-witness testimony. All such evidence exonerates Zimmerman. The only things that inculpate Zimmerman are speculation, theories, and accusations utterly devoid of and entirely unsupported by the actual evidence in the case.

      The lady is, I think at least being honest.
      The Traybots do NOT understand “The presumption of innocence”
      Neither do they appreciate its critical importance in the system of justice we all should treasure.
      That system is intentionally weighted to preserve the rights of an individual. The burden of proof is intentionally placed on the “State”
      As a society we long ago decided that to use the power of the State to convict and punish an INNOCENT MAN is abhorrent to us. The “pay off matrix” set up within the system is such that in effect, we put up with letting some guilty people go free, to ensure that we do not convict an innocent man.
      Having said all that…… in this case George is not only “presumed” innocent but is quite clearly innocent based on the evidence seen so far.

      In order to lay charges, I think there was a “Presumption of Guilt” put forward by the race baiters, and promoted by them and their Media Guru Julison. Then taken up by the political factions within the Florida Judicial system. Of course Traybots generally bought this narrative hook, line and sinker, and they too are operating under a “presumption of guilt”
      That is why they minimise, deny and twist evidence if it does not fit the presumption of guilt. As has been discussed “Cognitive Dissonance” means they have to dismiss evidence when it is at variance with their (wrong) notions.

      Here’s something to consider…

      You know how many of us initially believed the story put out by the MSM? I mean, I know I’m not alone among us here, when I say that at first I thought George was guilty. I thought the whole thing was horrible, almost something out of Mississippi Burning, complete with innocent little black kid; big, scary KKK vigilante guy; and his racist buddy cops covering for him. A lot of us fell for that, or at least to some degree…. right? But look how we’ve all now come to a totally different conclusion. Most of us began to see the light within a matter of weeks, if not days, of when we first heard the story. And not just us on this site, but many people around the country. LOTS of people now see this for the LIE, for the railroad job it is and was.

      So that’s one side of it: The people who initially thought George was the bad guy, but now support him.

      Now what about the other side? People who initially supported George, who thought he was innocent, but now believe he’s guilty… who now believe he IS a bad guy. Hmm…

      You know what? There ARE no people in that category, are there? Not that I’ve seen, anyway. Which, to me, just goes to show what the REAL TRUTH of this case is… and the fact that it’s there to see to anyone who WANTS to see it! Virtually every single person who has done a 180 with re to George’s innocence has gone from the point of Guilty —-> NOT Guilty. Nobody has gone the other direction.

          For some reason, I smelled a rat immediately upon hearing the Scheme Team narrative for the first time. I can’t recall for a second believing — without further proof — that events truly unfolded per that narrative. I don’t know why my hinky meter sounded an alarm right away, but it did. What dumbfounded me was how quickly so many pulled on their hoodies and went out to march … how quickly so many would have quite literally hung George Zimmerman at high noon in the village square, without further proof, without a trial. The lynch mob mentality among so many passive observers and the MSM really stunned me.

I didn’t think this stuff happened any more.” But that was as far as I went. I never talked to friends about the case, and I never talked to anyone online about it. Not until I finally started finding out some of the TRUTH, and started searching out things online did I really get into it. And like I say… I’m VERY thankful I kept my mouth shut up till that point! If I now had to look back and realize I had said some hateful things in those first few days, even if I had later corrected myself, I would feel HORRIBLE about it. Thankfully that didn’t happen.

I am so glad that George has such staunch supporters as he has here on this site and the few on other sites I was involved in before I stumbled into the forest and found the treehouse. I really believe some of the investigative work done here will help George and his defense. The accumulative effort in documenting everything is astounding. I am sure SD is proud of his Treepers for all of their work along with his and is administration.

    Just wanted to post this here as well;

    I’ve combined all the ABC clips that I’m aware of along with the Crump presser clip and the O’Mara upload of the same clip. They are all from the same segment at the Crump/DeeDee interview from March 19 except for the clips that are marked as later interview(s) with her that Matt Gutman had.

    One line from the ABC clips I can not find in the O’Mara release is “He said this man was watching him so he put his hoodie on”. Since that line is not on Crumps recorder, that we know of, it must have come from Matt Gutman’s recorder.

    Another line is from the March 26 clip and is probably also from a separate interview or from Gutman’s recorder at the time of the March 19 interview. The clip also sounds like it had been sped up a bit for the ABC video. She says on that one; “Trayvon come ask him “why you following me for” and the man come and said “what you doing around here”. Somebody pushed Trayvon on the floor cuz, cuz his headset like fell” which is also not on the O’Mara release.

    As I said before, they all sound like the same girl to me it’s just the different quality of recordings and speaking louder in one clip than the other that may make it seem otherwise, especially in Matt’s later interviews compared to the Crump interview.

If I had to guess which is the real Trayvon — the one of the narrative or the one tweeting vulgarities about females, I’d pick the latter. The tweets were his own words. The narrative about him is right out of a script from Little House on the Praire or the Waltons. Ridiculous.

The next step is to seek a version recorded by ABC, assuming it exists. Given the way television news operates, I think it does exist.

She hears the other boy say, what are you doing around here. And again, Trayvon says, why are you following me. And that’s when she says again he said, what are you doing around here. Trayvon is pushed. The reason she concludes, because his voice changes like something interrupted his speech.

        Crump lies so much, I can’ tell the difference between DD BS and Crump BS. He told Al Sharpton that Trayvon had to enter the code to open the gate, which is funny, because he didn’t enter through a gate.

        CRUMP: The whole time when he went to store, when he came back from
        store. All day, they talk. When you look at the cell phone records that
        blows Zimmerman`s testimony out of the water. Because she says and it`s so
        logical when she tells the story. He was walking home from that 7-eleven,
        and it started raining. He ran into the complex, had to hit the code, got
        into the gate, went to the first building he saw to get out of the rain.
        Stood there, let the rain subside, then he starts that walking back. She
        calls him back because he got off when it was raining.

Much is made of the 782.04(2) but imagine the reaction if he had held fast and not been pressured to change his initial Capias.

            I did think it odd that the 3/6/12 FEDEX fax was generated by a store minutes away from the Zimmerman residence on RInehart rather than the offices of the SPD. Wonder who leaked that? Don’t have time to see who was in the neighborhood interviewing witnesses.

          in the serrino report, it clearly states trayvon was in a 10 day suspension due to marijuana possession, but it was diluted to by the media immediately and further diluted by sabrina by calling it a normal teenager activity. However, that is a clear sign that trayvon was not some kind of sweet angelic math nerd that was sold to the media and o’mara knows it too. what further confirmed their suspicion had to be the trayvon records because defense did not started taking their media offense after they received the records which the martins were fighting to hide. lets see what happens because they will eventually be use by the defense to prove martin had a tendency for violence and also use to prove that martin had previous mma training which will dispute the serrino report and also will prove serrino had prejudicial views toward zimmerman. no wonder serrino hired baez for consolatory purposes and it is very possible that we will see serrino take the 5th in the deposition or even the trial.

The prosecution would have to try to explain what TM was doing around Taffe’s house, the opposite direction from BG’s from the front entrance, about 15 minutes later.

                    Wow, Evil Chinchilla really nailed it:

                    “As for the importance of this statement by Crump to lawyers, IMO it’s very important. He’s allegedly telling Al Sharpton (and any viewers) what DeeDee told him that Trayvon told her. It’s a very precise detail that can’t be mistaken for something else (like assuming Trayvon went to the mailbox area if all he actually conveyed to DeeDee was “this shed thing”).

                    If there was never a coded entrance gate at RTL– or if there was one but it was inoperable by 2/26– and yet DeeDee actually said in her interview that Trayvon told her he entered the code and got in, it’s proof (IMO) her testimony was a fabrication based on what Team Crump thought they knew at the time.

                    If a clear copy of the tape turns out to not contain any statement by DeeDee about a coded gate, it’s proof (IMO) Ben Crump was trying to sell a false narrative to the public and force the SAO to railroad George.

                    Either way, I think it’s something that attacks a basic tentpole of the prosecution’s grounds and establishes an intent to fabricate evidence, and is important both as evidence to get immunity and/or to present to a jury as “reasonable doubt” at a trial.”

            You are correct in general. In these matters the chief of staff has a key role. Options on various issues are drawn up and presented to the president, who ultimately decides. He his decisions can be no better than the accuracy of the information provided allows.

    http://www.wschronicle.com/2013/01/emmanuels-hoodie-service-to-remember-trayvon-martin/

    Emmanuel Baptist Church, 1075 Shalimar Drive, will honor the memory of Trayvon Martin with a special “Hoodie” service on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013 at 9:45 a.m.

    Martin was shot and killed on Feb. 26, 2012 in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. by George Zimmerman, the community’s neighborhood watch captain.

    Zimmerman, who is currently out on bond while awaiting his June 10 trial on second degree murder charges, has claimed that he shot the 17-year-old after the teen attacked him.

    Many others believe that Zimmerman became suspicious of Martin simply because he was a young black man wearing a hoodie (a sweat-shirt or jacket with a hood). Martin was not carrying a weapon, only a bag a of Skittles and an iced tea he’d purchased shortly before his death.

    The service will highlight the continual struggle African American youth face to be judged for the content of their character, instead of the color of their skin and clothes they choose to wear.

    The Church’s Youth Ministry will be in charge of this service.

    Mendez
    Pastor John Mendez will deliver a special message. The En Motion Mime Ministry will perform, as will other special guests. Everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, contact the church office at 336-788-7023.

      It was NOT skin color or clothing that caused George to call NEN. It was TM’s behaviour—-wandering around in the dark and rain, with a gait / posture that caused George to believe his behaviour could have been drug-induced. THAT is what all these churches and meetings and schools need to focus on—walk with deliberateness, do not wander around, skipping a little bit here and there, unsteady on your feet, acting like you do not know where you are or what you are doing. And definitely do NOT look around at the houses or in the windows. It is the same principle as women (especially) have drilled into them by parents, spouses, and even LEO re: their cars—get in and GO!
      Do not brush your hair, apply lipstick, freshen your mascara. Get in and Go. Same with a single person walking in the inclement weather or any kind of weather, day or night. Act responsible and chances are you will be viewed and accepted as responsible.

        Zimmerman told SPD investigators he thought Martin might be on drugs because ‘kept shifting where he was looking’. That was the only reason he gave.

          Not the ONLY reason. He was a wandering around on someone’s lawn in the rain. He was not jogging, not walking quickly, just wandering and looking at a house next to the cut-through which was just burglarized a few weeks earlier. THAT is suspicious behavior. THAT was the reason for the NEN call. It had NOTHING to do with Mr. Martin wearing a hood (if he didn’t wear it while raining, it would have been more suspicious) nor did have to do with the color of his skin. Mr. Martin should have ignored Georgie instead of trying to intimidate him while in the car. Mr. Martin should have kept walking to Brandi’s instead of attacking Georgie.

            It was a house for which Zimmerman had previously made a suspicious person call, not a house that had recently been burglarized.

            I did a round-up of Zimmerman’s explanations for thinking Martin was suspicious on a TalkLeft Forum post. I’m repeating it here, omitting some remarks that were pertinent to the thread it was posted in.

            First Two and Last Interviews

            Written Statement (p. 15)

            Reenactment

            Voice Stress Analysis

            ::

            In the SPD interviews, Zimmerman’s reasons for being suspicious of Martin were discussed at least five times, and mentioned briefly in his written statement.

            :: Martin was walking ‘leisurely’ and ‘casually’, not appearing to be trying to get out of the rain. (2/26-1, 4:08-4:47; 2/26-1, 10:25-52; 2/26W; 2/27R, 0:00-1:35; 2/27V, 25:36-26:28, 6:44:13-45:05; 2/29-1, 8:03-53; 2/29-3, 0:51-1:18)

            :: Martin was walking on the grass, not on the sidewalk. (2/27R, 0:00-1:35; 2/29-1, 8:03-53)

            :: Zimmerman didn’t recognize Martin. (2/26-1, 4:08-4:47; 2/27R, 0:00-1:35)

            :: Martin was ‘looking around’, ‘kept staring around him’, or ‘kept shifting where he was looking.’ (2/27R, 0:00-1:35; 2/27V, 25:36-26:28, 6:44:13-45:05; 2/29-3, 1:32-41)

            :: Martin looked at Zimmeran, or ‘kept looking’ or ‘kept staring’ at him. (2/26-1, 4:08-4:47; 2/27R, 0:00-1:35; 2/29-1, 8:03-53; 2/29-3, 0:51-1:18)

            :: Martin was ‘looking at all the houses’, or ‘looking into the houses.’ (2/26-1, 4:08-4:47; 2/26-1, 10:25-52; 2/26W; 2/29-3, 0:51-1:18)

            :: Martin was walking in front of, or looking at, or looking into, 1460 RVC, where Zimmerman had previously called in a suspicious person. (2/26-1, 10:25-52; 2/27R, 0:00-1:35; 2/29-1, 4:21-5:23; 2/29-1, 7:41-54; 2/29-1, 8:03-53) That person was later arrested for burglarizing a nearby house. (2/29-1, 7:18-40)

            :: Martin stopped in front of 1460. (2/27R, 0:00-1:35; 2/29-1, 8:03-53)

            :: Zimmerman knew Martin didn’t live at 1460. (2/27V, 25:36-26:28, 6:44:13-45:05; 2/29-1, 4:21-5:23)

            :: There had been ‘a history of break-ins’ at a house near 1460. (2/27R, 0:00-1:35)

Trayvon should have been in school, not getting suspended for something we don’t even know what for (the medias explanation is a lie).

          Application of silver nitrate and / or gel foam instantly staunches nose bleeds, very effectively. The old blood that is still inside the nasal cavity will continue to flow out or down, dependent on one’s position. The blood in the pic appears to be darker than “fresh” bleeding, which is what one would expect to see if the EMT had, in fact, treated George with one of the above applications. Bright red bleeding would have required repeat treatments and / or nasal packing.

    Yeah, very true. And of course I realize that 99% of the research done is by the president’s aides and assistants, NOT by the president himself. But your statement that I quoted is kinda the point I was trying to make. The “accuracy” of info can change, it can IMPROVE over time. I assume that when Obama made his “If I had a son…” comment, his people had NOT yet done much research into this case. But since then I’m sure they (not Obama himself, but his handlers/aides) have learned a whole lot more about the case, and realize it’s not what they first thought. So the “accuracy of the information” is much, much better than it was at first. Therefore Obama, through the advice of his people, has now decided to just DROP IT. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone were to mention Trayvon or George to him, that Barack would now be like, “Who?”

    Aaron Swartz’s Father Says Reddit Co-Founder Was ‘Killed By The Government’
    I thought it might possibly be a way to get others to see George in an intelligent, positive manner without arguing details of the case so I tried by AGREEING with Progs about malicious political inspired prosecutions. It was a back door attempt to apply reason in George’s case. This has become my modus operandi to “help” George’s case instead of going to the hate sites and totally wasting my time as well as getting all bent out of shape for nothing. So I slip in George’s case when it makes sense to do that while making my points about a particular article.
    ************************************************
    Malicious/political prosecution is now a part of our system. Once started, there is no way to reign in overzealous prosecutors, especially when politics AND race are injected.

    Many have spent years in prison for crimes they did not commit. We don’t know how many others took their lives beforehand because they are just ordinary citizens.. not newsworthy, you know.

    We saw a tragic case of prosecutorial misconduct in the Duke Lacrosse scandal and yet, we are witnessing it once again in the George Zimmerman case but this time, it’s even worse in that it has “undone” all progress ever made in race relations.

    Nifong did not spend ten years of his life in prison, as he was trying to do to those students. That should have been the MINIMUM for him but NOW prosecutors can do as they damn well please without fear.

    Check out the outrageous outcomes in cases handled by Angela Corey, if you want to see truly immoral conduct. A black woman will now spend 20 years in prison when many judges would have “spanked her butt.”

    Even though Casey was exonerated, it was at least partially a result of “unethical” conduct and overcharging by the State so yes it can go both ways as it has with others.

    We claim to have the best legal system in the world, and it would be if we would keep politics (AND RACE) out of it.

Same does for the people who are now facing federal charges even though they’ve committed NO state or local crimes. I’m talking about the people on trial (or recently convicted) for LEGALLY supplying medical marijuana to sick, sometimes TERMINALLY ILL people in places like California. Obama, Holder, and their ilk are destroying the lives of good, innocent people. And as we know, George is one of them. And by the way, I’m continuing to inform my friends about this case, and how it relates to other terrible miscarriages of justice. And it’s continuing to have a positive impact. Slowly but surely….. but we’re getting there.
