01-29 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

    HATE and Freindship.

    Looking over the hate for George that oozes from the dark slimy JQ Trayvon Zone sewer.

    It is not just aimed at George, but at his whole family….. his brother especially, his Mother even!!…his friends… his legal representatives etc. It also extends to witnesses whose testimony supports George, reporters who write anything not rabidly anti-George, and of course, posters at forums like CTH (me especially).

    Evaluating my own position as I type this…. I realise that George Zimmerman has become a FRIEND of mine… in the same way I have other “on line friends”.
    I have always taken such friendships seriously…. support and help people in my group of online friends… it’s natural that I take offence and “bite back” when I see all the hate directed at George.

    I know that for Traybots “friend” is just another button to press. They have no concept of what it means. They solicit and delete ”friends” with less emotion than one has when discarding a pair of socks.

    I am George Zimmerman’s friend.

    I take the hate-filled attacks on him and his family personally.

    “It’s not just business… it’s personal”

    (Since today’s daftness does not relate to the GZ case per se I will post the examples in a RT Members only thread)

      I couldn’t be happier that George has so many online friends that truly care about him and his family. In the very beginning few supported him. Very quickly CTH investigated and immediately threw their support his way. God bless each and every Treeper and God bless George, Shellie, and their families.

            this is the belief that needs to be changed in America. whites have been victims to blacks and this usually goes unreported. I don’t know if you remember the story of all the AA’s that ganged up, beat up and stripped that tourist in Baltimore. I haven’t heard much about that. a lot of defending blacks and talk of a KKK that is now pretty much dormant.
            I’m glad someone posted the link about the AA student that attacked whites for no reason defending Trayvon Martin. the media is the problem. soon when Trayvon is exposed, another story will come to light which paints the AA as the victim. AA’s are not victims anymore, and the history argument needs to go to sleep. Jews were victims in a much more cruel way, but I don’t hear them complaining. they are productive people in our society, while the AA continue to bring up the race card.

          The Miami Herald confirmed that Trayvon was currently on a 10 day suspension and it was his 3rd suspension that school year. It’s unclear to me how long the other two suspensions were for and whether or not he had been suspended in prior school years. With the change in schools, it’s possible.

          http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/03/26/v-fullstory/2714778/thousands-expected-at-trayvon.html

          Then we have Mr. Crump finally coming somewhat clean about a troubled teen and he let’s slip that the last suspension involved another student so it’s unlikely that student got suspended for traces of drugs found in Trayvon’s back pack.

          “…Mr. Crump announced that Trayvon had been suspended from his Miami high school after school officials found in his bookbag a plastic bag with traces of marijuana inside. Mr. Crump said that he believed at least one other student was suspended in the episode.”

          http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/27/us/shooter-of-florida-teen-describes-assault.html?_r=0

          Tracy on the other hand had been consistent when questioned about why Trayvon was suspended from school….he had been in an unauthorized area.
          “He was not suspended for something dealing with violence or anything like that. It wasn’t a crime he committed, but he was in an unauthorized area [on school property],” Martin said, declining to offer more details.

          http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/03/22/v-fullstory/2708960/trayvon-martin-a-typical-teen.html#storylink=cpy

          Is it possible that these 2 students broke and entered into a part of the school they weren’t suppose to be in to smoke dope or to steal something? That would explain the bits and pieces they’ve let slip out and the reason for a major suspension.

          If this is the case, can you imagine the public outcry if it is learned that they left Trayvon unsupervised in a community that had a rash of break and enters? Was George Zimmerman so far out to lunch with suspecting Trayvon? Why hadn’t Trayvon made it home 40 mintues after leaving the store? Did his parents know all along it was likely that Trayvon was up to no good that night? We’ll have to wait and see what they find.

                  According to the Miami Herald. Yes. But I point out Crump admitted in one interview the Feb. 2012 suspension involved another student being suspended too and lastly, Tracy has consistently said the Feb. 2012 suspension was for being in an unauthorized area.

                  It would be much easier if the family who wants to be so public, would be more forthcoming with the information. I get the distinct impression they aren’t looking for the truth in the case but rather a chance to sue those with deep pockets.

            In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.

            Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.

            “hiding and being suspicious.” To bad we can’t see that video bet he looked something like he did on Feb 26

              A while back…. discussion at JQ about all the things that could be heard in the background of GZ’s NEN call, took a fanciful turn. They already “heard” all manner of things like GZ racking his gun etc…. but some then claimed to hear “an accomplice” in the car with George.. and later when he was out of the car. Mass hysteria took over and people began to hear more and more in the NEN call background.
              They even gave this discussion it’s own dedicated thread :D
              A poster named “Ludwig” seems to have led the hysteria… but others concurred. He(She) eventually claimed there were 4 accomplices (2 male, 2 female) as well as the sound of a cockatoo at one point. Last I read… there is music playing as well… not sure if they are claiming a radio playing… or perhaps a live Mariachi band accompanying GZ as he chases after TM.

        My view is that the answer to that is contained in the school records that MOM has obtained, and if it is relevant, MOM will bring that up in court. The records speak for themselves.

        Questioning Tracy provides nothing on this micro-issue and adds nothing beyond what is contained in the record, and serves to antagonize the other side further and garner more sympathy from the public in general for Tracy.

        Now if, perchance, BDLR put Tracy on the stand (assuming we even get there), then it is open season for a cross-examination. I do not see that happening.

    How can BDLR have expected to hold an investigative meeting with W8 on April 2nd when he hadn’t had investigators comb through the phone records and look for corroboration or discrepancies in the days prior to any meeting? Do you know why he hadn’t done that? Because he didn’t subpoena the records until April 2nd!

    As we all know, BDLR interviewed with W8 on April 2nd. Reading the incident report completed by SA Moore leaves as many unanswered questions as it attempts to answer. From his report, we know that after a couple of attempts, W8 was “escorted” to Sybrina Fulton’s apartment for her interview which began about 6:30 p.m according to this report http://www.scribd.com/doc/115550303/Bernie-De-La-Rionda

    In discovery, Page 36/284 O’Steen tell s us that he and BDLR interviewed W8 beginning at 6:55pm. As we have all listened to the tape, the only one who questioned her on tape was BDLR. According to this question on tape: “BDLR: And for the record, today is April the 2nd, 2012, and it’s about 7:05 PM. Uh, what I wanna kinda do is ask you some background questions, and then I also want to ask you some questions about something that happened back on February 26th of this year. And for the record, you knew a person named Trayvon Martin, is that correct?”

    O’Steen’s questions to her appear not to have been recorded. In the Radar Online piece, a source close to W8 told the reporter in L.A. about the interview, and the report Jen Heger, posted it online some 17 hours later (April 3rd at 12:30 pm) advising the interview was more than 2.5 hours. “Martin’s girlfriend, who is a minor so RadarOnline.com won’t be disclosing her identity, was interviewed at an undisclosed location for more than two and a half hours. “ The taped portion of the interview is less than 15 minutes and O’Steen’s summary is only a paragraph in discovery 36/284. He reports just after the conversation started they began to tape it. So where is the rest of the interview?

    http://www.clickorlando.com/blob/view/-/15490330/data/1/-/kligxm/-/Zimmerman-documents.pdf

    In the State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery, in the FDLE reports for March (page 16/22) on the legal site http://184.172.211.159/~gzdocs/documents/1112/discovery9/fdle_reports_march.pdf
    we find this page highlighted by Talk Left,

    http://www.talkleft.com/zimm/deedeecell.pdf

    and we learn that W8’s phone records were not even subpoenaed and vetted until just mere hours before her scheduled interview. On April 2nd, SA Wes Mullins was instructed by SAS David Lee to make telephone contact with subpoena compliance personnel from Simple Mobile LLC to obtain information….in an expedited manner.

    At 12:10 p.m. on April 2nd, BDLR and O’Steen were on route to Miami, Simple Mobile emailed the telephone information sought in an excel spreadsheet and advised that no subscriber information was available for the number provided as the phone was prepaid. 20 minutes later, at 12:30pm BDLR and O’Steen’s flight has arrived in Miami!

    Did you hear BDLR drilling down to get verification and corroboration that this phone actually belonged to this girl?
    BDLR: OK, what was your telephone number back in February of this year, 2012?
    Dee Dee: [Redacted]
    BDLR: And is that a cell phone?
    Dee Dee: Yes.
    BDLR: OK, and is that phone number under your name or under somebody else’s name?
    Dee Dee: Now, it should be now under my name.
    BDLR: And do you know what the provider is…is it T-Mobile? Or do you know?
    Dee Dee: Yeah, T-Mobile…[mumbles]…I think.
    BDLR: And did you know when you talked to Trayvon, what number you called him at?
    Dee Dee: I don’t…I know the last four digits

    How comfortable as a juror are you going to be that this person is connected with this phone?

    Can someone please remind me why the local prosecutor was deemed not to be in a position to handle this case and the case was handed to this inept group of investigators/prosecutors by the Governor of Florida?

        GZ doesn’t appear to be the only person railroaded in this case. Chief Lee had only been on the job 10 months, not long enough to be associated with the department’s race history and Wolfinger was a very experienced prosecutor determined to follow the law and he got pushed aside for what I would argue in light of W8’s interview, a prosecutor willing to make a result rather than follow the evidence.

She was told that by BDLR and O’Steen at the April 2nd interview. Before then, she WASN’T cooperating with law enforcement.

                “From Trayvon’s girlfriend’s meeting with prosecutors she got the impression that she might not be called to testify before the grand jury because Zimmerman might be arrested and charged before then. If she is needed to testify in front of the grand jury though she absolutely will,” the insider says.” –Recall they told her that on April 2nd. GZ was arrested on April 11th.

                With how Corey likes to overcharge and pressure for a plea, they may even have told W8 she’ll never see the inside of a courtroom. It will be quite interesting to watch how the deposition of W8 goes for the defense. http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2012/04/trayvon-martin-girlfriend-interviewed-prosecutors/

                  I have heard that story before so thanks for reconfirming it. However, I am skeptical. I mean why would she be afraid to testify before a grand jury unless there was something fishy going on? Do you really think she understood the legal difference between giving a sworn statement and testifying? I suspect they would be much the same to her, given her education but maybe not.

                  If she is deposed, the defense is going to require her to COMPLETELY answer every question in an intelligible manner that can be transcribed. Grunts and groans may have been OK with Bernie but she will have to do better than that for West or MOM. Bernie will object to every question. This could go on for days.

                  I will be amazed if the State allows DeeDee to give a full deposition.

                    How likely is she to get a question like the ones BDLR gave her on April 2nd in a Grand Jury?

                    Actual question posed by BDLR on April 2nd.
                    BDLR: And do you know what the provider is…is it T-Mobile? Or do you know?

                    POSSIBLE GRAND JURY QUESTION: Who is your cell phone provider?

                    If we look at the time line as Sundance suggests, on March 22nd the local prosecutor issued a subpoena ordering W8 to appear. He had to do that b/c she wasn’t cooperating. First they accused Sanford Police then for reasons unknown there was a problem with her talking to FDLE. Pam Bondi confirmed that to Piers Morgan on March 27th.

                    However on March 22, Chief Lee temporarily stepped down and Wolfinger was summoned to the Governor’s office for a meeting with Pam Bondi. Why? Pam tells us she is friends with Crump and Parks. Is it possible that Mr. Crump phoned her complaining about the subpoena Wolfinger issued to W8? Did he threaten to continue the pressure he was applying with his rhetoric. I think it is.

                    Crump knew he had a weak witness. He test-drove her performance on March 19th and was only able to get about 12 minutes of recording in a 26 minute call.

                  Without a doubt I believe Crump told W8 and her mom that she would never be used in a courtroom. Without a doubt. You must revisit the timeline to construct the Scheme Team mindset at the time: “All we want is an arress, we only look for an arress”… etc. etc.

                  Without DeeDee there would be no arress. They needed an “arress”. Even Bondi said DeeDee was a minor.

                  Then came the pesky need to actually have “evidence”, beyond the arress. They didn’t think it through that far…..

                  But 3/19 DeeDee was having nothing to do with that.

                  Hence, another DeeDee was needed for 4/2…. and let’s make this one “an adult” to avoid all that pesky parental guidance/accessory to fraud n’ stuff…… Voila!!! 4/2 “Oh, you want that too”…. 18 year old DeeDee appears.

                  (see update #31)

                  Get Matt Gutman and BDLR in the same building, each in separate rooms, and have them describe the “orator” of their conversations…… wait, wha?

I think that now the biggest thing they’re worried about is liability for what they’ve helped DO to George. I don’t see any way the truth is not gonna come out about Dee Dee, and how Crump (and maybe others) created her/their tale of lies. I just can’t imagine Dee Dee (whichever one) will be offered up to MOM/West for a deposition. I think that the prosecution knows where that will lead, and they do NOT wanna go there. So if I was forced to make my best guess at what’s gonna happen, it’s that the prosecution will, at some point, be forced to throw Crump under the bus.

                    She does not include AB nor AF in her friends. Nor Tracy, Sybrina, Crump. Did the original DD1 either not like her or was not her friend and give Crump her name knowingly? She’s 17 with a birthday in June, so she’s not DD2. Her name fits for being W8.I am NOT saying she is W8.

                    D-man, MJW and others, is this posible?”

                    My point being that AF or AB my have been the original DDs and that they may have said they were DH. With your conversations with the students, is this posible?

                    I know that this may seem farfetched. I’m going with the idea that this scam wasn’t supposed to get this far. There could only be a couple of 16 yr. old girls that would put their neck out to get Georgie arrested, AF and AB. I’ll bet they don’t like DH at all and used that girl’s name for DD1. They are NOT on DH’s extensive friends list. I’ll also bet that Crump didn’t ask for any ID or maybe he knew who they really were and allowed them to say that their name was DH. Actually, although I think they were both (AF and AB) in on it, I believe it was AF that did the talking. That’s why all believed DD to be 16/17. AF’s birthday was April 15th when she turned 17. When she was supposed to go before the GJ was when she said no more, and it was then that Crump started to find DD2, the 18 yr. old. Did BLDR ask for an ID? Or did he take her word for it since she was brought in after being found? I’ll bet not.

                    So, they you have it. How they pulled this charade off in a nutshell. Re-cap: AF may have been DD1 saying her name was DH. DD1 quits, Crump comes up with DD2 and she still uses the same name, DH. BTW, it’s also possible that Crump came up with false IDs for DD.

        As I understand it, Mr. O’Mara learned that W8 was NOT a minor when he got the unredacted version of BDLR’s taped April 2nd interview. Giving the lack of investigation that went into this meeting before it occurred, I think BDLR might have also thought that W8 was a minor when he boarded the plane on April 2nd. That would explain the reference to the witness being a JUVENILE in the bottom box in SA Moore’s written report. http://www.scribd.com/doc/115550303/Bernie-De-La-Rionda

        Looking at the transcript of the taped call, the transcript from the beginning of the tape reads:
        BDLR: And for the record, today is April the 2nd, 2012, and it’s about 7:05 PM. Uh, what I wanna kinda do is ask you some background questions, and then I also want to ask you some questions about something that happened back on February 26th of this year. And for the record, you knew a person named Trayvon Martin, is that correct?
        Dee Dee: Yes.
        BDLR: OK…now, you live [Redacted]…
        Dee Dee: [Redacted]
        BDLR: OK, how long have you lived there?
        Dee Dee: [Redacted]
        BDLR: Your whole life?
        Dee Dee: Hmmm…[mumbling]
        BDLR: OK, where did you live before that?
        Dee Dee: [Redacted]
        BDLR: OK, the reason I am asking you is because I am from Jacksonville, so I want to make sure the record’s clear…that we’re here in uh [redacted] Umm…
        Dee Dee: A year or two…or eleven…[mumbling]
        BDLR: What?
        Dee Dee: Ten years…or 11.
        BDLR: I’m sorry, what?
        Dee Dee: Eleven…or 10 years
        BDLR: OK, where do you go to school?
        Dee Dee: [Redacted]
        BDLR: And how did you know Trayvon?
        Notice they redacted her answer to how long have you lived there. How would that identify her? Then BDLR’s next question may have revealed what age he thought she was, “Your whole life?” Did W8 answer 16 years to that question? Then as he presses for more information he realizes she’s 18 years or older! KABOOM!! As Mike McDaniel aptly noted in his piece on the April 2nd interview. http://statelymcdanielmanor.wordpress.com/2012/06/13/the-trayvon-martin-case-update-11-the-dee-dee-interview-kaboom/

    This may have been posted before and if it was I apologise, but I have been reading old interviews and a statement that Tracy M made to “The Final Call” (Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan site) is disturbing to me and IMO confirms that bigTM supported the NBPP and their attempts to hunt GZ down. The Final Call asks BigTM a few questions, the one that stood out to me was this:::

    Interview by The Final Call on 4-5-12
    FCN: Many people want to see different things done as a result of this horrendous shooting death. What do you as the parents want to see take place?

    TM: Justice for us would be to have George Zimmerman caught, handcuffed, arrested, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and charged for the murder of Trayvon. We want nothing less than that.:::::
    What does he mean by “Caught” ?

    Then you have this interview from TFC dated 3-20-12
    Najee Muhammad, who heads the New Black Liberation Militia in Atlanta, told The Final Call his group is determined to make a citizen’s arrest.

    “Everybody is making great speeches but somebody has to do something different. Nobody is thinking like this. We can’t keep looking to the enemy to give us justice,” said Mr. Muhammad.

    He says the militia group has had “well-trained members” on the ground in Sanford the past few weeks and even obtained the address for the parents of Mr. Zimmerman in Lake Mary, Fla.
    “We were able to obtain information that his father, Robert Zimmerman, got him out of the country because they are spooked out and scared by what his son did,” said Mr. Muhammad. “People want to debate about whether there is probable cause to make a citizen’s arrest. George Zimmerman killed a 17-year-old boy in cold-blooded pre-meditated murder. What more probable cause do you need?”

    Since making their efforts public, he says the New Black Liberation Militia has received numerous calls from the Justice Dept., FBI, the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center in attempts at “finding out details of our plans because they know how we move. We’re not playing games.”

    Very disturbing to me. Those statements are very telling and shows the danger and threats that GZ and his family are dealing with everyday.

      from Freepublic site:
      The FBI murder statistics do not differentiate between types of rifles. There are about 100 million rifles in the United States. In 2009, the last year in which numbers have been reported, there were 13,636 murders. Guns were used to murder 9,146 people. Hands and feet were used to murder 801 people. Blunt objects were used to murder 611 people. Rifles were used to murder 348 people, and that is all rifles, of which assault rifles are only a small fraction. Assault rifles are used so infrequently in homicides that many police departments almost never see them; in 2009, there were nine states that did not have a single murder committed with any rifle.
