BGI/State/Feds VS Zimmerman – February 5th Full Hearing Video

We’ll provide a few considerations at a later time.   For followers of the case here is the full hearing video.

Attorney Crump is attempting to avoid being deposed. Subsequently he prefers, upon the advice of his counsel, to just provide a written statement.

You can read the Crump filing HERE

Additionally, we will begin research of Crump’s attorney to see where he intersects with the players, and what his historical attachements are etc.

    I’d tell the Judge right out….Dang!!….Judge….that’s such a good affadavit…who needs depositions when someone is on trial for his life….defense rests…we’l just take everything at face value….that’s truth, justice and the Florida way….

      We might see a defense attack on Crump’s affidavit in connection with a motion to compel Crump’s deposition. I have doubts about the accuracy of Paragraph 30.

      • The problem is that there is no evidence to show that it has been edited or parts were erased. The given excuse for why there are 12 minutes “missing” from the recording when compared against the times of the phone calls, will be deemed satisfactory. As much as we may want to get justice for what the Scheme Team has done, it will likely never come. In my opinion, the deposition of DD has always been the most important aspect. Once the Defense is able to question her, the holes should be too apparent for even this Judge to miss.

    • I agree this is a disgusting excuse for a criminal proceeding and the Judge is worthless, in my opinion. As someone that lives in Florida, it is depressing to see my state dragged down even further. Unfortunately, this is not something that only happens in Florida.

What’s the point in us, or anyone else, debating ANY case, anywhere in this country. Just make it up as you go along, toss a coin, and see what happens.

    14. his clients identified male voice as Trayvon’s calling for help. Noooooo we have someone who heard Tracy say that IT WAS NOT his son’s voice, and this is just one example of why Crump needs to be deposed. He is pushing this Affidavit like it is the truth … whole truth … and nothing but the truth. But EVIDENCE suggests otherwise. Depose his ARSE !!!!

    18. At time of interview he did not know the address of W8? Why? Isn’t that one of the very first things you are asked? Why – Depose his ARSE !!!!!

    20. Why didn’t he identify by name Gutman’s assistant? Since media are not officers of the court and can do what they like with information, was there some kind of paper that Gutman or assistant signed in connection with the interview of this highly private secret W8? to ensure that media Gutman/assistant were going to keep everything confidential? Depose his ARSE !!!

    21. Had no knowledge of who was present WITH W8? other than parents? Why didn’t he ask if there was anyone else present? Wouldn’t he want to know that. How does he know that Sean Hannity wasn’t sitting there with W8? Depose his ARSE !!!!

    24. While he knows Gutman had his own recording device he has no knowledge whether their device was successful in making a recording. Did Gutman in the presence of Crump press the record button on his device? Did Crump see him do it? Did Gutman lie when he said he had the ONLY recording? (compare the two tape recordings ) Depose his ARSE !!!!

    26. You don’t RECALL if the correct date and time of the recorder was set prior to recording this most valuable interview? Why not? Depose his ARSE !!!!

    28. ALL OF IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You cannot claim ignorance of EVERYTHING, when it was your business to conduct this interview in the proper manner. DEPOSE HIS ARSE !!!!

    32. ALL OF IT. Breaks ??? for a 30 min. interview? Why? Why would he have to put W8 on hold??? If he was there with her, would he keep walking out of the room? Do do what? Figure what questions he was going to ask? Didn’t he come prepared just to hear her story? So why the need to put her on hold at all? He admitted previously that he turned the recorder on and off and defense has said emphatically that the recording device should have been turned on and left on. Depose his ARSE !!!

    On top of lawyers rushing in the middle of court to violate the court orders of 48 hour notice, which is apparently okay now except for the defense, it is also truly a most awe striking thing to see the state hand over discovery right in the middle of court as O’Mara complains about the problems with discovery and the state, and the judge literally does not see the problem that is taking place right before her very eyes and worse reverses it to actually be O’Maras fault.

      That was one of the most infuriating aspects of today’s hearing.

      Of course, the appropriate recourse/response is, as soon as the defense has reviewed the (again-supplemented) discovery, immediately file a motion for an emergency hearing, to address any deficiencies therein, including any data missing from 2/26.

      Go into court, and in front of Nelson, demand that the State produce the missing data, or else provide sufficient justification and explanation for why the State has brought case against the defendant, relying on testimony from a phone call that the State has no evidence ever took place.

      And then demand a Richardson hearing, to put an end to the discovery shenanigans.

        Yes, SD, but Crump wants that undone. Look just under the heading under Affidavit of Crumpy: “(In Lieu of Deposition or, Alternatively, In Support of Mortion for Protective Order)”. I assume that if she says no dice to Crump he must be deposed, they will stall again, and file a Motion for Protective Order, wherein they will stick in a whole bunch of case law and the kitchen sink. HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE DEPOSED. And this manuever by Crump, having his attorney hand her the Affidavit … I mean really. She’s the Judge – NOT a Defense attorney who’s obligation it is to vigorously and with any means necessary defend his client. Someone tell me how the Judge can determine what is adequate. She’s deciding for the attorney (the defense) what is adequate??? You could show that Affaidavit to 200 defense attorneys, and they would all rip it apart, piece by piece. She should only be allowed to decide if it is within the law for Crump to be deposed. She seemed to be of the mindset he could at the October hearing, so what’s changed really? huh … it’s BS. She is in NO position to make this decision on the whether the Affidavit is sufficient.

      “While this more limited or static approach to discovery IS NOT IN VIOLATION OF THE RULE, it does require more vigilance by the defense, and carries with it inherent delays in the discovery process.”

      “Again, while the State IS WITHIN ITS RIGHTS, under the rule, to demand such formalities, that has cost hundreds of hours of additional time to be expended, which has delayed work and progress on more substantive matters.”

    If I remember correctly if the second bail hearing when Robert Zimmerman testified that it was his son that screamed for help . BDLR stated that both Tracy and Sybrina identified the voice screaming for help as Trayvon. BDLR at that time knew that Tracy said that was not Trayvon’s voice. BDLR lied to the court. Since he lied once how many other times has a lied to court. That is ground for being disbarred. If someone get link to that hearing and check to see what BDLR said about Tracy saying voice belonging to Trayvon, when he said as Serino stated and another witness that it was not. This might be grounds for dismissal. Prosecutor Lying to court.
