01-22 George Zimmerman Case – Open Discussion Thread

Use this thread as an open thread just for Zimmerman Case stuff. A place to just dump, collect, or discuss general information about the Trayvon Martin VS George Zimmerman Case.

“The sensationalized, fact-deficient coverage of this case has achieved the
desired results. The networks got their ratings. The politicians got their
talking points. And if it means innocent people get caught in the middle of the
racial enmity they’ve fomented, obviously it’s considered acceptable collateral
damage.
Congratulations, geniuses. Job well done. Jim Treacher, The DC Trawler

    Papapi: “No worries. I have an archive of every single @rzimmermanjr tweet”

    What on earth do they think this will achieve?

    As mentioned, stalking RZ’s twitter postings now dominate the discussion on the GZ case…… why?

    RZ is a supporter of his brother of course, but he is not part of the case. Not a witness,

    Yet the Traybots stalk his twitter account, copy and paste to their forum along with their own potty mouthed puerile replies. Then wonder why he blocks some of them.

    What possible value do they think, Papapinhead’s copy will be? It would not be a certified copy anyway so of no evidentiary value, and besides… evidence of WHAT exactly?

    If they really want to archive tweets I would suggest the complete works of NatJack or Bigboithedog (and the associated dog pack) might be worth saving…. As a testament to the nasty rabid posting that has gone on, and as potential evidence in future civil actions.

      Including the admission of archiving all of his tweets, their public harassment of him via Twitter, and their public and private hatred, bigotry, and slander against him, Robert Zimmerman may be near to having grounds for a restraining order against some of these people.

      Their obsession with him is simply sick.

        This new “game” of stalking twitter accounts and all the abuse on twitter, and that brought back to a forum, is new to me. It never happened at JQ when I was there. Tweets were a source of information.. during a hearing for instance… put this pack hunting and stalking is new.
        The “new crowd” at JQ have brought it with them. Unfortunately Ma Baker has been co-opted… she joined Bigboi’s Twitter gang. She is at least ashamed and has hidden her account.
        If Baker comes to her senses along with Toby and Amra, they might be well advised to “take out the Twitter Trash” and start down the road of regaining some credibility at JQ.

They will never be blessed or find peace in there lives saying the kinds of things they do to him or anyone else .

      Don’t you get it? A few days ago, Bobby went on a radio talkshow. The host of that show turned out to be a bit of a racist. (Nevermind the fact that Bobby didn’t know about that in advance.) So that makes Bobby a racist, which of course, in turn, makes George a racist. Therefore George will get NOTHING from the NBC lawsuit (since they were only telling the truth about George). Oh, and it’ll also cause the FBI to re-open the civil rights investigations against George. Oh wait, I forgot the most important fact of all: George, Bobby, and the whole family, plus of course their legal team, have said good things about us here at the Treehouse! And seeing how we’re nothing but a bunch of night riders…. well, what’s that say about George et al?!!!

      See? It’s simple, really.

      The case should have been dismissed immediately. There is not even statute referenced that would indicate George broke any law by “profiling” Martin. If there is, I have yet to see it.

      I guess it’s too late now but someone should have immediately challenged the affidavit. I am still waiting for the State to produce some bombshell evidence that George committed any kind of crime.

      No one shows any common sense whatsoever and, worse yet, no one abides by the rules, especially those that pertain to discovery. This is a bad movie at best.

            My parents married in New York City in 1948. They were both first generation Americans. My maternal grandfather did not approve of my dad. He was a furrier who was born in Austria. He gave my father a white gold ring with 3 diamonds surrounded by sapphire baguettes. The ring came with a proclamation that no matter what happened, my father could always sell the ring to take care of my mom.

            My father wore that ring on his right pinky finger every day I can remember until the day he died in 2004. It is his only possession that I have a sentimental attachment to. My mother couldn’t bear to part with the ring until about 2 years ago. It currently resides in my safety deposit box. I am going to have it resized for my left ring finger for when I marry my current GF, the love of my life.

            Wearing a pinky ring says nothing abut MOM’s abilities as a lawyer. I realize it’s not a good fashion choice, but profiling someone based on their choice of digital adornment seems unfair.

      Just want to add that on Apr 2 Brandy told investigators that she thought Feb 26 was the first time Trademark had walked to that 7-11. (See page 32 of the 284-page discovery doc bundle.) Chad told investigators that Trademark had walked to the 7-11 one other time, the Thursday prior to the shooting. (See page 39).

      Cousin Stephen (“Boobie”) described retracing Trademark’s path. I had seen the Esquire article before and commented on it, but looking at it again tonight I see info I had not seen before regarding the path Trademark had taken. If he’d walked to the 7-11 only once or twice before, Boobie must have been with him, and probably Chad too since Chad would know the route. Here’s a summary of the route from the Esquire article:

      pass the Trustco Bank
      walk along the 6-lane road
      take the sidewalk for the Lake’s Edge development
      take the dirt path in the grass
      go past the Colonial Village billboard
      enter the driveway to the Colonial Village complex
      take the shortcut to the Retreats
      slip through the opening (in the fence?)
      walk across open lawn between two buildings
      enter the Retreats main street

          • tara says:

            OK, I have carefully traced the path mentioned in Esquire, and I only disagree with the path on your map at the point where Trademark would have entered the Retreats. I’m sure it doesn’t matter, but I’ll be thorough here:

            And there it is up ahead, the shortcut back into the Retreat at Twin Lakes. Coming from this direction on foot, there’s no question it’s the quickest way to go. Later they’ll put up a sign: PRIVATE PROPERTY NO TRESPASSING VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED and a series of little arbor poles for foliage to grow on, but even then they’ll leave a gap big enough for a man to slip through. For Trayvon, it’s a straight shot down an open lawn, between two buildings and onto the Retreat’s main street.

            If he entered the Retreats at the poles, then your yellow path line should be moved up one building, if you know what I mean, between the building that is parallel to the road and then the next one to the west which is positioned diagonally. Esquire is vague about the path once inside the community. Did Trademark walk along Retreat View Circle or on the sidewalk leading to the pool ? I guess he walked on the street, else he would have appeared on the pool security video.

            I just realized that the Esquire article implies that GZ saw Trademark pretty much as soon as Trademark entered the community, before he reached the clubhouse. Once again I’m amazed by the inaccuracies, small details like this have a big impact. It implies that GZ targeted Trademark simply because he was walking along the street, when in fact GZ targeted Trademark because Trademark was hanging out at the clubhouse looking shady. Who would hang out at the closed clubhouse when it’s raining? I would have watched him too! But Esquire’s article helped to brainwash the public into thinking that Trademark was *profiled*.

    Not really related to this case, but for those of you who live in nice parts of the US that don’t have vast ghetto wastelands, I invite you to drive around the Englewood neighborhood in the south side of Chicago. A good starting point is 6000 S Racine Ave Chicago, IL 60636. Plug the address in to Google maps, zoom down to the street view, spin around and soak in the ambiance, and then head east on West 60th.

    What amazes me is just how many neighborhoods like this one exist in Chicago, and in 10 years they haven’t gotten any better. The economy has nothing to do with it. There’s a total lack of care there. They’ll spend money on late model cars, satellite dishes, liquor, weaves and nails, and expensive gym shoes, but they won’t lift a finger to clean up their yards or repair their homes. They’ll stand out in the streets or on their porches all day long but refuse to stand in front of a grill or cash register to earn some pay. I first saw this kind of environment when I was in Detroit, and I had sympathy for the residents. After I moved to Chicago that all changed. No sympathy now. You reap what you sow. The Dems make it all possible, taking our hard-earned money and turning around to give it to the scum. These are not people in need, these are people who need to be cut off, kicked in the *ss, and forced to work to support themselves like the rest of us do.

      I was going to drive around (via Google street view) one of Trademark’s old neighborhoods. I had too look up the address of one of Sybrina’s houses in the Dade County public records. She was presumably ejected, there was a foreclosure with final judgement in December 2008. Why on the mortgage and foreclosure documents is “University of Miami” listed as a co-owner? And “other defendants” ? In the final judegment there’s a line item for “Service of Process at $45.00 per Defendant”, and the sum is $135 therefore the number of defendants was four. Sybrina, U of Miami, and two others. I’m quite sure Sybrina alone inherited that house free and clear when her mother died, there’s a quit claim deed and no mortgage at the time of the transfer, only subsequent mortgages which I’m assuming are refinancing. It looks like she took out a total of $170k from this property that was, at best, worth less than $100k, and then in the end she walked away. What the h*ll is going on here ????

Garfield Park neighborhood, 3299 West Maypole Chicago IL 60624. Zoom down to street view and spin around to see the gangbangers freaking because the Google car drove past them. Dude in the front is too drunk to care.

      CHA has a lottery periodically for the wait list for public housing. The last one was in 2010. The lottery for CHA’s Family Wait List was conducted in 2010 and 40,000 registrants were added to CHA’s Family Wait List in the same year. 40,000 registrants ! 40,000 !!! That’s on top of the 50,000 “familes and individuals” who have already staked their claims. CHA has almost 9,400 apartments in buildings designated for seniors and more than 11,500 units of family housing. It also oversees the administration of 36,900 Housing Choice Vouchers that allow low-income families to rent in the private market.

The only state that I know of that only allows carrying unloaded handguns is for those in California without a license, but then it has to be COMPLETELY unloaded, any magazine can’t be in the pistol, and even that was banned a year ago. Florida has no requirement that someone who is legally licensed to carry a handgun cannot have a round chambered. That IS a practice in some European countries and even Israel for at least some armed police.

      But, that is definitely the sound of a kel tec pf 9 being racked, so, if it isn’t GZ doing it, then there’s someone else there doing it. They did say that GZ and Shelly both had the same guns. So, maybe GZ had his wifes gun and MO or someone else had his gun? In any case, something unexplained was going on out there.

      That sound is not being generated by sound alike things, because there simply aren’t that many things that sound like it, that would be available out there in the dark rainy Sunday night.

      Are these the same voice experts that claim it is a child screaming for help that have identified that sound as a PF-9 racking? A) it doesn’t sound anything like that, and i know what a PF-9 actually sounds like. B) how can they tell it is a Kel-Tec vs a Ruger or some other gun?

      Just another case of “crap the evidence shows clearly that the mantra we have been playing out for months is totally wrong, so we have to come up with some excuse as to how we aren’t wrong, let’s see, I know, someone else was there with the exact same gun!”

        But, that is definitely the sound of a kel tec pf 9 being racked…

        People who only ever see guns in a Hollywood production should not pretend to be experts. This person could no more identify by sound only the racking of a Kel-Tec PF9 slide than Dee Dee can hear the sound of grass, or a “little bit get off, get off”.

        But let’s back up: is it even possible that the NEN call recording picked up the sound of Zimmerman racking the slide? As previously discussed, the load-out of the gun precludes him from having done so. But even suggesting that he might have done so belies a complete lack of understanding of most semi-automatic pistols.

        Here’s a photo of the Kel-Tec PF9. Notice that little lever, just in front of the safety? That is a slide release. The purpose of the slide release is to release the slide and chamber a round, after the gun has been re-loaded.

        And why is the slide release needed? Because when the gun’s magazine is exhausted, upon firing the last round in the chamber, the action locks the slide back, since there are no other rounds to be chambered.

        In such pistols, the slide never has to be “racked”. It can be, but there’s typically no need to do so, unless:

        1. The pistol is stored unloaded, with the slide released. Upon loading, the slide would need to be racked, to load a round.
        2. The pistol misfires. The slide would need to be racked either to eject the unfired round, or to load a round after a failure-to-feed.

        That’s pretty much it.

        So, Zimmerman would have had no reason to rack the slide. And if he had done so in order to mimic a Hollywood cowboy, doing so would have necessitated that he find and reload the ejected round.

        I see that someone else suggested that the sound was a “chamber check”, but that makes even less sense. Pulling the slide back to verify that a round is chambered makes, essentially, no sound whatsoever.

        Here’s a point regarding that despite the personal tragedy involved. Our Godson committed suicide on the 9th. The Thursday before that he was in a fight. At the funeral on the 15th his knuckles, forearms and the backs of his hands were covered in bruises. From the fight ! They were self defense wounds !! They were so visible my wife and I were kind of shocked the Funeral Director allowed that. The point is Trayvon has no bruises, how is that possible. The scratch is stated as a scar also, he did not get that from anything that happened on 2/26, that’s for sure.

        This doesn’t even make sense. racerrodig states that his godson was involved in a fight and was bruised defending himself. But racerrodig thinks that Trademark’s lack of bruises are indicative of something. Using his own logic, I think we can conclude that Trademark wasn’t defending himself. Eyewitnesses saw the physical fight so we know Trademark was fighting. There ya go, racerrodig, it’s not rocket science.

        I’m not holding my breath, while waiting for them to cite their source for such statutes. And yes, it must be statutes. Why?

        Because Florida statutes have preemption over all laws regarding carrying weapons in the state:

        790.33 Field of regulation of firearms and ammunition preempted.—
        (1) PREEMPTION.—Except as expressly provided by the State Constitution or general law, the Legislature hereby declares that it is occupying the whole field of regulation of firearms and ammunition, including the purchase, sale, transfer, taxation, manufacture, ownership, possession, storage, and transportation thereof, to the exclusion of all existing and future county, city, town, or municipal ordinances or any administrative regulations or rules adopted by local or state government relating thereto. Any such existing ordinances, rules, or regulations are hereby declared null and void.

        That means that, even if the Sanford Police Department attempted to put in place regulations that prohibited neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying firearms, or if the national NHW guidelines prohibited volunteers from carrying firearms, or if the National Sheriffs Association had guidelines prohibiting neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying firearms, such regulations are null and void under Florida law.

                This is my first time to follow a case like this in real time on the internet. I got interested in the Duke Lacrosse case after it was over. OJ Simpson was in the early days of the internet, but well before I was online myself.

                There are some things I’m still getting up to speed on, like reading those dockets.

                First, though, I think the 1/22 OS article, linked above, is quite clear. Cutcher, Mora, and two unidentified 911 callers were deposed on the 1/16. It says the 16th; we don’t have to guess. Two days later, 1/18, two more witnesses were deposed, with no information given about them. Then we’re told that one of the four unidentified witnesses is W-11. She may have been deposed on 1/16 or 1/18.

                I googled ‘notice of deposition’, and it’s just what it sounds like. The attorney wanting to take a deposition has to file a notice a certain number of days before the date for the deposition. I looked at GZLegal, and there they label the notices according to the date of deposition.

                So, on the docket, are the dates associated with the notices the filing dates, or the deposition dates?

                About the earlier article you mentioned above. It’s not linked, and I haven’t read it. Wasn’t W-6 deposed back in December?

          “(Wit 18’s name redacted) reviewed her audio interview with Detective Serino, SPD, prior to the interview. Brett (wit 18’s atty) had been furnished her written statement to SPD, her written statement to a private investigator, (both supplied by John Guy at their request) and her 911 call.

          They (FDLE investigators?) had previously contacted the Martin Family Attorney, Ms (redacted) and Ms (redacted) had provided them (FDLE?) with the written statement taken by a private investigator. She (wit 18) did this with the understanding that it not be revealed. Brett (wit 18’s atty) was upset, indicating that JACKSON (oops the forgot to redact that one) had broken her word by supplying it (wit 18’s written statement to Jackson’s PI) to law enforcement.”

          SO, the written statement dated 3/16 in the MAY discovery dump was the one given by wit 18 to Natalie Jackson’s PI, and wit 18 (and her atty) were none to happy that Natalie Jackson had given the statement to the police. WHY? What did she THINK they would do with it?

Over the next two weeks she did on-camera interviews with national news.

        From the same article:

        Police arrived and pronounced Martin dead at 7:30. Cutcher and Mora gave a statement and their phone numbers. The next day, Cutcher says that she made more phone calls to the police and didn’t hear back. Two days later, the police called to follow up, although according to Cutcher and Mora, this was fruitless. “We were told, ‘you guys just need to calm down,’ ” says Cutcher. “They never followed up after that.”

        Not quite “never.” On March 14, as coverage of the story picked up, WFTV Channel 9 ran an interview with Cutcher. The police department’s response: Basically, they called her a liar. According to spokesman Sgt. Dave Morgenstern, Cutcher’s statement (which hasn’t been released) backed up Zimmerman’s story. “Actually,” said Morgenstern, “officers who were canvassing the neighborhood looking for potential witnesses, the evening of the shooting, contacted her and she said she did not want to get involved. She did write a statement, for her roommate, and that was only after several attempts by officers who were asking for her information.”

        Interesting. She and Mora didn’t witness the events leading up to the shooting, they only witnessed the cries for help, the sound of the gunshot, and then Zimmerman’s and Martin’s position post-shooting. What they offered has been corroborated by other witnesses.

        Why did Cutcher feel that police should have remained in contact with her after she and Mora gave their statements? Why did she think that she, or she and her girlfriend, were so important that they should continue to talk, if not to police then to the public through the media?

                  My guess is more often than not a defense attorney is representing someone who committed a crime, so there’s some natural bias, for lack of a better word. Bias based on prior experiences. It takes a little time for all of the facts to come out and for the attorney to be convinced that the client is indeed innocent.

                    Yeah, Hooson made a fair point. I’m like you, I really wish MOM had been more vocal from the start. But I can also see some logic in what Hooson said. In fact, MOM now using the word “innocent”, as opposed to “not guilty” is a big deal, I think. The reason I say that, is because of any FUTURE clients MOM may have. See, one reason lawyers are often hesitant to come out and loudly, publicly declare their client’s innocence is the “precedent” it might set. What I mean is this: A lawyer starts on a new case, with a new client. He thinks he can get the guy off, but he doesn’t really believe the guy is 100% innocent. So when he holds a press conference, he may say stuff like, “I believe my client will be found not guilty. The state doesn’t have enough evidence to convict.” Well, I can imagine that client NOT being real thrilled with that. I can imagine them saying to the lawyer:

                    “Hey wait a minute! I remember the last guy you represented, you came out and said he was 100% innocent, and that he was being railroaded. So now the way you talk about me, it looks like you don’t have as much confidence in MY innocence. I think you were trying to help him more than you are me.”

                    See what I mean? Lawyers just don’t like to get their clients’ expectations too high. And they REALLY don’t like to be accused of caring more about one client than the other. So, you know what just dawned on me? The fact that MOM is willing to do this now, may be more significant than we thought. Maybe the reason he isn’t worried about the next client to come along, is that he doesn’t plan on HAVING a next client. Maybe he knows he’s “burning bridges”, as they say, and this is gonna be the Big One he goes out on. Of course it’ll be just the START of his next “career” (writer, consultant, speaker, etc, etc)… but maybe as far as basic defense work, maybe this is it?

                    (This of course is TOTAL conjecture on my part.)

    LYRICS
    It’s Sunday the God’s day a day of rest
    The Nba all stars are playing next
    But right outside that same city
    The celebratory atmosphere would change quickly
    Who watching the game with me you know lil Trayvon
    Was reppin his home town D Wade and LeBron
    He had just came up from Miami to see his daddy
    Who knew such a great weekend would end so badly
    In a place where you move because it’s safe for your family
    But some people got a ingrown hate for your family
    Halftime just a short brake from the slammin
    Bout to go to the store lil cuz you want some candy?
    Bet I grab you some skittles kid
    I’ll be right back in a little bit

    Paid for lil cuz’s skittles and a iced tea
    walked out the store and felt the chill of the night breeze
    it seemed a little colder than before
    he didn’t know it was a boy like a soldier in a war
    that was watching him clocking him thinking about stopping him
    nine milly cocking them who’s this nigga walking in my neighborhood
    he fits all the specifics of criminal statistics he looks suspicious
    911, what’s your emergency
    A black man’s walking through my hood purposely
    stay clam, it’s just little Trayvon but he wanna be the hero so he put’s his cape on
    George Zimmerman neighborhood block captain
    loaded glock strapped in fake cop has been
    got out the car ignoring what the cops asked him
    They always get away this time that will not happin

    George Zimmerman didn’t take his Ritalin
    drunk off adrenaline says he making a citizens arrest
    Trayvon looks at him vexxed
    I just walked to the store nothing more nothing less
    Just steps from his home he ignored his request
    George grabs him, Trayvon swings and connects
    Starts screaming out for help but Zimmerman see a threat
    so he pulls out his gun and he points it at his chest
    He fires but he misses Trayvon pleads for forgiveness
    I didn’t do nothing this is senseless
    but George Zimmerman was so vicious
    he made sure the second shot hit em no survivor no witness
    Trayvon never gave his cousin his skittles
    missed the all star game didn’t see another dribble
    And George Zimmerman wasn’t even arrested
    the message is only white lives are protected
    In America

      Well, this shows where we are at. Chaos over the civil war. Obama claiming he is the neo-lincoln. Research shows that the cause of the Civil War was abolition of slavery. I don’t think there is slavery of black americans now.

    ATTENTION JELLO!!!

    Yesterday, we were talking about going down memory lane and you mentioned finding first posts, specifically yours. It took a few FUN hours, Man, the names (posters that I found and miss and the ones still here}. Here it is and it was great (after you were let out of “awaiting moderation”).

    JELLO:
    Hey all. I just discovered this site a few days ago, and I’m impressed by the quality of some of the research and logical conclusions in your Zimmerman/Martin posts and comments. I’m trying to catch up, and I’ve still got about three more updates to go through before I’m there. I hadn’t planned on commenting till I was done, but since this post specifically addresses something I wanted to say — something I think you all might find important — I decided to skip ahead.

    But before I continue, I should admit something: I’m one of those scary, scary liberals. BOO! Actually I’m much further on the left of the political spectrum than your average liberal. And so of course it’s unlikely you and I would agree on most things you discuss on this site. But while you’re generally right that the average liberal in this country is taking the side of “Team Skittles” as you guys call them, that’s not universal. There ARE many libs out there who have enough intelligence, ethics, and self-respect that we don’t allow ourselves to be manipulated by the MSM or anyone else. I’m one of those. And as far as this case is concerned, I’m finding myself agreeing with about 95% of what I’m reading on this site. And I even agree that there are some people who clearly seem to want to use this case to further racially divide this country.

    So…. first I just wanted get that out of the way, to make sure you all won’t chase me off with a can of RAID or something. We good? OK, since this comment is just an intro to myself, I’ll post another comment just below with the substance of what I wanted to talk about. That way, if anyone thinks it’s of any value, they won’t have to come dig through THIS comment to find it.

    SDC welcomed you here and as they say the rest is history

    My gift to you. I hope you enjoy it.

      I am kinda liberal myself when it comes to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Amend it or shut the f#^&$ up.

      How cool! Thanks a lot. So May 5th… I thought it was right around then, but wasn’t sure. But there’s one part of that comment which is pretty funny, where I say I’m gonna post the “substance” of the point I was wanting to make in a follow-up comment. And I implied that I was gonna do it in a few minutes. Then in my next comment I was like, Well, I’m still working on it. HA! Turns out the thing got so long that I didn’t post it as a comment at all… rather I sent it to the admins in an email. And then, something like 4 days later, Puddy puts it up as a stand-alone post. Wow, what a welcome! It was this, in case anyone wants to continue on the Memory Lane theme:

      http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2012/05/11/purple-jello-theory-from-the-tip-line/

      I had forgotten just how loooong that thing was. And now I gotta go read it again, to see how many mistakes I made. I think it’s remained pretty accurate, but I’m sure I messed up a few places.

      Anyway, thanks again for that, Ejarra!

      Ok, now glancing over that post, and all the comments, I just now realized I didn’t even respond at the time!!! Apparently that’s because I didn’t even realize it had been posted till days later. Back then I didn’t yet know how to check things really close on the site, so I’d often miss things. Boy, this makes me feel bad. I mean looking at all the nice comments from people, and I said NOTHING in response.

      Forgive me? ;)

      Mmm mmm mmm…. when he gets rolling, Crump is really quite the impressive liar, isn’t he? If I knew nothing about this case, and nothing about Crump and his buddies, I’d have no reason not to believe what he’s saying. I mean, the guy is really good. But then again, I think you have to be a bit of a sociopath the be a really, really good liar.

        Some human beings are predisposed to lying and it is readily and immediately apparent to most logical people. Crump is one of those liars. I don’t know if it was bred into him or if it’s learned behavior but my guess he has matured to a point at which he really can’t help himself. I honestly believe what I am saying about him.

        Casey Anthony was one of those rare liars who could remember her previous lies and even expound on them. She was a master “fibber.” We will see if Crump has such talent when and if he is deposed and does not hide under the Fifth.

          Oh yeah, I should have added a caveat to that. Crump is an excellent liar WHEN THERE’S NO PRESSURE ON HIM. But once he’s put on the spot?…. Well, we haven’t got to see much of that so far, but like you say, it’s coming, and THEN we’ll see just how good he really is. (My guess is he’ll crumble and try to hide under the table… if it ever comes to that.)

            He thinks if he expresses himself with “conviction,” his lies will be believed. The tragedy is that he knows he’s lying. It’s as if he is intentionally insulting those of us are not fooled. He knows very well to whom he speaks. His audience is people just like him and it’s just another reason why race will always be an issue.

      does crump even know there is a possibility that he is currently not in a good situation? 12 minute recording from a 26 minute phone call? multiple stops during the tape recording? am I missing something in here? crump said the recording was the first and only time he had ever spoken to dd, but he asked dd to say hello to her mamma for him while recording. that does not sound like a first time conversation? Then there is good old mat gutman who inserted himself into this and wanting to be the white knight who saves the savage indians, who was talking to dd for days. is there any document evidences about what were they talking about or all he has is that 20 second audio recording? It amazes me that the martins still firmly believe in the original story they sold to the public despite a definitive photo of zimmerman with a broken nose.

    Up until now I thought this case would be tossed pre-trial. I no longer hold that opinion. It is gonna be knock down drag out fight to the finish. All the power of the state and federal government is coming down on George. Hard. He is the Bismark. The best chance is the jury. it will go to trial in my opinion.

        No matter what she would LIKE to do, she can’t just ignore the rules of evidence and criminal procedure. She can’t just ignore laws that are now on the books. And she can’t just ignore precedent. So if she’s stupid, corrupt, or scared enough to rule the wrong way, she’ll just get shot down at the appeals level. Maybe she’s OK with that… I really don’t know.
