02-26 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

      Over most of the past year, only my immediate family and closest friends have been more in my thoughts than you have. I’m sorry it took me until mid April to realize what you were being put through, but I’m thankful I finally got involved. Most of my spare time has been learning as much as I can about this, and doing whatever I can (mostly just through words of encouragement) to help you guys out. I don’t regret a minute of it.

      Hang in there, guys!… and just realize how many people out here care about you.

    Going (69)
    Maybe (31)
    Invited (1,298)
    Tuesday, February 26, 2013
    5:00pm in EST

    Tuesday, February 26, 2013 marks one year since the tragic and senseless murder of Trayvon Martin. Weeks after his death thousands of students and civil rights groups convened on the Georgia State Capitol and called for the arrest of his murderer George Zimmerman and an amendment to the “Stand Your Ground” law. Students, civil rights groups, and gun safety organizations will return once more to seek justice for Trayvon and stop gun violence in Georgia

    Gun violence survivors, students, civil rights groups, clergy, and legislators will unite in this symbolic event to show the world that we still expect justice to be delivered, and law makers to pass common sense gun safety legislation.

    “Remember & Act” is also a time to shape the gun policies in our state and the nation. We demand that our legislators close the loopholes that allow criminals easy access to guns. As major advances in gun violence prevention and safety are on the rise, a lack of action will leave a host of problems in its wake.

    Organizers of this local event are encouraging everyone to convene on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol at 5PM in a rally to show their support for protecting our right to life, our families, and our friends. The event is a collaborative effort of iCAN (InterCollegiate Action Network) and State Senator Vincent Fort (39th), and sponsored by the National Coalition of Black Civic Participation.

    How you can effect change:
    1. By proclaiming February 26 as a day of action for Trayvon Martin and gun violence prevention and safety
    2. By confirming your attendance at http://tinyurl.com/JusticeReturnsGA
    3. By joining our efforts through sponsoring a bus for students, providing an official to act as spokesperson, and/or rallying volunteers to participate in the event
    4. By discussing gun violence prevention and safety in your services during the week prior
    5. By providing your support through texting JUSTICETM to 50555 to donate $10.00 to The Miami Foundation to benefit the Trayvon Martin Foundation
    6. By making your members/email group aware of this event (details enclosed)
    7. Following @iCANhq on Twitter and liking www/facebook.com/iCANhq and http://www.facebook.com/SenatorVincentFort

    For more information on how we can all work together to promote justice and raise awareness of gun issues, please contact us at (678) 608-0401 or email iCANhq@gmail.com. ). The best way to honor the memory of Trayvon, Jordan Davis, the victims of Newtown , Aurora, Chicago and the hundreds of people who are shot and killed right here in Georgia each year, is to make sure it does not happen again.

    Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you on the 26th.

    Here is my theory as to what I think happened with Witness #8. It really starts with one of Trayvon’s friends tweets made on March 22, 2012.

    https://twitter.com/ItsStevoB/statuses/182939747843440640

    The date is important because this is two days after the Crump presser where he revealed Witness #8 to the world and there was considerable news coverage talking about her and playing some of the short clips provided by Crump of her interview with him.

    It seems to me Mr. Stephen B knows one thing for certain; that the girl Trayvon was seeing didn’t know he was dead until a week after the fact. It is this reason Stephen B gives as to why the girl being reported must be a different girl Trayvon is seeing at the same time he is seeing the girl they know. Notice here he is not saying that the girl being reported is not Trayvon’s girlfriend because it doesn’t sound like her. No, he saying it’s not her because he is assuming the girl being reported knew Trayvon was shot and killed whereas the girl they know he was with didn’t.

    I think Witness #8 is the girl Stephen B knows as the girl Trayvon was with and he wrongly believed the girl he was with didn’t know Trayvon had been shot and killed until a week after the fact. He wrongly assumed there were two different girls based on this.

    How is it that Trayvon’s girlfriend didn’t know Trayvon had been shot and killed until a week after the fact? And how does Stephen B know this?

    The way I think he knows this is from what happened at Trayvon’s viewing held on March 2, 2012.

    Witness #8 went to the viewing and while there became so physically upset that she had to be taken to the hospital. The reason given was that she learned at the viewing that she was the last person to talk to Trayvon and it was this information that had made her go to the hospital. But how could this girl after nearly a week not have known she was the last person to talk to Trayvon? She was on the phone with him. She said Trayvon was in physical danger, that she thought she heard a crazy white man push Trayvon and she couldn’t get back in touch with him. It was being tweeted the next afternoon that Trayvon had been shot and killed in a fight.

    https://twitter.com/Loveable_Meli/statuses/174229239518855168

    https://twitter.com/Loveable_Meli/statuses/174229632474816513

    https://twitter.com/Loveable_Meli/statuses/174230123921408000

    https://twitter.com/Loveable_Meli/statuses/174282279181500416

    Am I to believe Witness #8 couldn’t put it together that the fight she said Trayvon was in the night before was the one he got killed in thereby making it likely that she was the last one to talk to him? That she had to be told this? No, I’m not buying it.

    I think what happened as to why she went to the hospital and why Stephen B thinks she didn’t know about Trayvon being shot and killed until is because she acted the day of and at the viewing like she had just found out. This is why Stephen B thinks the girl he knew Trayvon was with didn’t know about it until a week after. Because she’s acting like she didn’t. She acted so dramatically she even went to the hospital.

    Now why exactly would Witness #8 do this? What reason would she have for pretending like she didn’t know Trayvon had been shot and killed five days before? I contend the reason is because she didn’t want anyone to know she was the last one to talk to Trayvon. She didn’t want anyone to know what she really heard on the phone that night.

    Remember, at this time no one but her knew that she had talked with Trayvon. No one knew until, reportedly, Tracy Martin called her, from looking at the phone bill, on March 18th.
    But why would a concerned girlfriend who just heard this dastardly thing happen to her boyfriend on the phone not immediately try to get him help and make sure he’s okay? Any human being in their right mind would do so but not this girl. Why? Why would she not let anyone know in the days following? Why?

    The only reasonable explanation is because she heard something else other than what she testified to. More than likely she heard Trayvon say he was going to take care of the white guy he thought was following him, that is, go kick his ass. She may have even encouraged Trayvon, her man, to do it.

    After she lost connection with Trayvon and couldn’t get a hold of him right after she figured Trayvon was laying low after taking care of the white guy and so waited until the next day to talk to him to hear the details from Trayvon. Except the next day she didn’t hear the details from Trayvon. She saw the details in tweets like the ones above. She got the most important detail; that Trayvon had been shot and killed.

    My god, the horror in that moment she must have felt starring at the tweets roll in about Trayvon’s death. To know what she encouraged resulted in his death. Fear stricken and riddled with guilt she tells no one. She completely shuts down all communication. For the next few days she acts, to anyone she may encounter, as though nothing has happened and keeps interactions to a minimum. Then on March 2 she puts on her big show and goes to the viewing telling people she had just found out what happened and goes to the hospital because she cannot face all the people knowing the truth. Guilt put this girl in the hospital, not shock.

    Unfortunately for Witness #8, she is not in the clear. She gets the call from Tracy who tells her that he knows she was talking to Trayvon. What does she say? She must be smart enough to realize she can’t lie and say that she wasn’t. Or perhaps she did and Tracy sternly reminds her that he’s looking at the phone bill and that’s how he got her number. So she begins to talk and tell her story. But what does she say?

    Keep in mind here, it has been three weeks between the night of the shooting and the conversation with Tracy. There has been, at this time, a tremendous amount of news coverage and we know the family had more details about that night than the media. The point is, witness #8 had plenty enough time to craft and mold her story from what she has heard, for the past three weeks, from family, friends and the media.

    It is possible that Crump et al. doesn’t even know though it’s also possible they helped her craft her story upon learning the truth from her. Also keep in mind here I’m not talking about any 2dd hypothesis. I’m merely trying to explain what I believe what went on with Witness #8 as a singular person.

      Wow.. double wow. You obviously put a lot of thought into this, Dman. I would need to think about this as much as you have before commenting but, after my first read, this seems possible.

      However, this also means that DeeDee is real and that she was actually on the phone with Trayvon. Others here do not believe that.

      I am about to give up on figuring this out. It has gotten too complex for my tired little brain. Everyone appears to have a different theory but Sundance seems very sure of himself so my inclination is to go with him until we have concrete proof.

            Yeah with a GPS history it won’t be any mystery what is the likely address for W8 nor any need for anyone to ask her to solve a mystery “where you been stayin’ and how long have you been stayin’ there?” GPS will tell them that and a few other things too, like if she was the probable usual user of that phone on 2-26-2012 or was it somebody else. It will be interesting also to look at an address history for W8 as well as her call contacts and see if those histories and contacts are consistent before 2-26-2012 and after 2-26-2012. It needs to be ruled out any possibility that somebody has played musical chairs with a prepaid cell phone that suddenly became adopted by W8 in a time after 2-26-2012 but was a phone belonging to and used by persons unknown on and before 2-26-2012.

It seems odd, almost deliberately “not looking” that an expanded time frame like from the beginning of February would not be requested for a prepaid “anonymous user” phone. It seems like the police were almost afraid to look further because of what they might find.

      Then why the need to hide her address from defense counsel in clear violation of law and discovery rules? I think they need to hide her address because it doesn’t match the ping logs.
      Why the BS about Crump doesn’t know her name or age or address at the time of the interview?
      Why doesn’t Crump do a face to face interview?
      Why is she hidden from cops until April 2?
      Why did she age from 16 to 18 between March 19 and April 2?
      Why does Ronquavis have a formal meeting with her at the funeral? He didn’t tell Nancy Grace that he didn’t know she had talked to Trayvon when he met her.
      Why does Natalie Jackson say they hired a PI?
      I don’t buy that Tracy didn’t check the online phone records until March 18 when the cops asked him for the phone pin on March 5. And the phone billing cycle shown on the online records is inconsistent with Tracy receiving a bill on or about March 18.

        6) Ronquavis’ answer is odd, when asked if he had an opportunity to talk to her he replies with “No not personally just like, just a meet, just a formal meeting.” I have no idea what to make of that. However him saying that he doesn’t know her and met her at the funeral is something that could effect my theory but I’m going with Stephen B over Ronquavis, I wonder how well Ronquavis even knew Travon.

          April 2, 2012 was a busy day for the State. At 10 minutes past noon FDLE special agent Wes Mullins in Orlando receives subpoena compliance for the phone records of W8 with Excel spreadsheets (ping logs) for the anonymous user prepaid phone of W8 beginning with the records date of 2-26-2012. And there is a non-disclosure for records pertaining to a juvenile flag on that document.

          An SAS Investigative Division “memorandum” for later that same day (page 36 and page 37 of 283) shows circumstances of the BDLR interview of W8, about 7 hours after the phone records of W8 are delivered to the FDLE. But there is no non-disclosure “juvenile flag” on these documents. O’Steen and BDLR are in Miami hours later on the same day as FDLE has the ping logs for the phone of W8.

          There is no report of FDLE forwarding the subpoena compliance information to BDLR that same day as was the interview of W8 done. I am curious about the coincidental timing of the subpoena compliance phone records to FDLE about 7 hours before BDLR interviews the W8 for whom those phone records had just been delivered by e-mail from the service provider to FDLE in Orlando. Was BDLR copied on that subpoena compliance before his interview with W8, or did BDLR speak by phone with FDLE Orlando and have any significant information about the phone records which could cause BDLR to be skeptical and patronizing in his questioning of W8 ?

          On April 2, 2012 did the right hand know what the left was doing WRT the SA investigators trip to Miami, and the phone records received in Orlando by FDLE ?

Even the probable cause affidavit is “tagged” as fraudulent by the “iced tea” disinformation. It was WATERMELON JUICE which was found with the deceased. People close to the investigation not just readers or hearers of reports about it, did know very well the soft drink was watermelon juice and not iced tea. BDLR knew it. That is why BDLR asked the question of DeeDee, and the wrong answer to that question did serve to discredit the state’s star witness as well as the probable cause affidavit.

          She actually did better in the Crump interview. She said Arizona and didn’t specify iced tea, as far as I can tell. She is apparently easily led, which might be useful for the defense in extracting even more suspect testimony. “DD, it’s been a long time since April 2 and I’m sure you have had an opportunity to think in more detail about what you heard that night.

And sometimes they throw the opposition a bone, if only to keep the theater going. It’s job security for everybody.

      IMO what you said it certainly possible, I think if she felt guilty that she might have contributed to TM’s death she would be pliable to embellish the story to help the Scheme Team.
      Putting aside knowing that she was the last person that talked to TM, I feel like you completely incredulous that as a girlfriend who is supposed to have spent hours on the phone with TM, would not be concerned about him for days, without contacting someone who knew TM in some way.
      Having said that I find it extremely interesting that DD testimony would match in so many ways to GZ’s NEN call. In reality the only thing her deposition adds is the sense of a chase and it provides TM’s state of mind as a scare teen. Thereby setting a nice storyline. There very few details, mostly just a narrative and those that are given could have originated from the NEN call or GZ’s own statements.
      I always thought it was odd how the information she gave only served 2 purposes, give the sense of a chase, when there was none, and that TM was not acting in an aggressive manner, just the elements a lawyer would need, nothing else.

        Others have stated that cell phone service providers routinely give cell phone call logs and cell tower ping logs to the police, upon request, during criminal investigations.
        At the outset of their investigation into the death of Trayvon Martin, the police could have requested the call history and cell-tower ping logs for the phone found at the crime-scene and any phone with which it was in contact, throughout the previous day or days.
        The police therefore could have easily determined whether or not someone was in contact with the phone found at the crime scene and whether their testimony may have been of significance to their enquiries.
        If there was a phone connection to the phone found at the crime-scene, during or prior to the fatal confrontation between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, it is inconceivable that the police would not have been aware of this or that they would not interview the phone-contact.
        The police would have been able to identify the phone used by the contact and putative ear-witness and then, by use of cell-phone ping logs, their identity and address.
        They would not have required access to the phone found at the crime-scene, regardless of its ownership.
        The police would not have required any assistance from the Martin family, the Martin family’s lawyers or their private investigator, to discover this alleged phone contact and ear-witness.
        Neither would the police have required the district attorney to make appeals for this alleged ear-witness to come forward and make a statement to police, since the police could have directly approached her and questioned her, regarding the subject of any phone calls, which occurred so close to the time period of interest to the investigation.
        The police could have approached and interviewed the alleged phone contact, discretely, without even needing to reveal the nature of their enquiries to anyone, other than the contact.
        However, the alleged ear-witness was allegedly discovered by the Martin family, not by the police and was interviewed by the Martin family lawyer, by phone, in the presence of a TV reporter.
        Following the broadcast interview with the alleged phone contact and ear-witness, the state appealed for the alleged ear-witness to come forward and make an official statement to the police.
        Despite the initial refusal of the alleged ear-witness to come forward, there has been no discovery released, which indicates that the police made any independent effort to identify and interview this alleged witness, using the technical means at their disposal, rather than rely upon the Martin family and their lawyers to arrange an interview at the Martin family home, with other parties present.
        Would this be normal practice for the police, in a politically sensitive investigation of such prominence.
        I believe that the police, and hence the prosecution, are aware that the alleged ear-witness is a creation of the Martin family and that the false testimony of this witness is irrelevant to the criminal prosecution of George Zimmerman, provided the prosecution can overcome the final hurdle of the immunity hearing, which would permit civil lawsuits for financial damages, regardless of the verdict in a criminal trial.
        Would Det. Serino have had access to the results of any enquiries about the phone found at the scene being in contact with any other phone, before or during the confrontation between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman?
        Would he have been aware of the use of cell-phone call records and cell-tower ping logs to identify any individual who may have been in contact with Trayvon Martin at this time?
        Would a conscientious investigator ignore such evidence?
        Would a conscientious investigator rely upon a private attorney’s private investigator to discover such an important potential witness?
        Would any lead investigator, upon learning of a potentially significant witness, not take or order steps be taken to identify that potential witness, by his own subordinates within his department, or correspond with any technical specialists who may have the necessary expertise?
        Does any published discovery indicate that the police undertook any such investigative work, after learning about the existence of the alleged ear-witness?
        If the lead detective did not order such attempts to identify the alleged ear-witness, then this would suggest that he already knew that the phone call record did not support the claim that the phone was in use and that the testimony of the alleged newly discovered witness was false.
        I believe that Det. Serino, who has already been deposed by the defence, may have testified that forensic evidence contradicts the prosecution claim that the phone found at the crime-scene was in use at the time of the confrontation and that the alleged witness testimony is provably false.
        If this is indeed the case, then, even without the actual phone call records and ping logs, the defence may be able to prevail in an immunity hearing.
        There is no need to formally charge a criminal conspiracy upon the part of the state prosecution.
        The state prosecutors could conceivably claim that the machinations of the Martin family and their lawyers were unknown to the state and that they had accepted the evidence provided by the Martin family and their lawyers in good faith.
        The state could also claim that juries evaluate the credibility of witnesses, including those experts who testify which witnesses must, through unimpeachable forensic evidence, be lying to the court.
        This would possibly protect the state prosecution from the charge of bringing a false and malicious prosecution against George Zimmerman, while transferring the blame to the Martin family and their lawyers.
        The state officials who had a vested interest in permitting this travesty of justice could reasonably claim that they had tried zealously to prosecute George Zimmerman, but the only incriminatory evidence which justified his arrest was refuted by technical evidence, which was unimpeachable and that the law allowed no other course but to grant immunity before trial.
        The Martin family and their lawyers would then be forced to admit that they had procured a false witness, as revealed by the state prosecution and they would then recriminate over who actually among them was guilty of a serious criminal offence and who was merely misled, like the rest of the public.

      Some very good thoughts here (especially about DD feeling guilty!) but your explanation about how the phone got back to Miami (and how Tracey knew about Trayvon on the porch) is still weak (I don’t buy that TM would leave his stash on the porch).
      And remember this: BDLR has never shown any fear about the phone records … OR DD! I don’t think he’s stupid. He knew his first so-called leading question to DD proved she was lying. So, he never planned on using here as a witness … and never had the police investigate her. And I don’t think he manufactured or erased phone evidence either. The (stolen?) heart phone was dead and had no memory for that day … AND … TM’s phone records are real … and do show the phone was used in Sanford. But here’s BDLR’s problem: he can’t prove who used the phone and how it left Sanford!
      So, with your new thoughts, my theory still stands. TM and his cousin drove (again) to the 7/11 (no security footage of TM walking) and then to the back gate (as Tracey said). TM stayed on the porch (talking to DD) while his cousin took the button (for identification) to meet someone(s) at the cut-thru. GZ then “chased” a stone washed blue jeans hooded figure back to the porch where TM either ignored or was egged on by DD … and went to the T to attack the Cracka GZ. The next day, Tracey first called the cousin (who had driven away) and found out it was TM who attacked (thus telling the police it was not TM’s voice screaming for help) and then Tracey eventually ended up with the real TM phone. End of story.

          diwataman, Stephen told the police he went to the 7/11 on the MORNING of the 26th and TM stayed in the car while he got some Blunts. Then, he said he dropped TM off and went home. BUT, in his tweet (with photo wearing the plastic trophy belt) he said the last time he saw TM was the NIGHT of the 25th when they were shadow boxing and getting high in Brandy’s garage. The two stories don’t match! Why?
          The first part of my theory is this: The police said they reviewed the 26th roadside security camera footage and found no significant evidence. But, IF they saw Trayvon walking, don’t you think they would have leaked it to be on every newspaper front page? I don’t think St. Skittles ever walked to or from the store … he was driven by Stephen … to the back gate and Brandy’s back porch … just like Tracy said! Tracy did say that … before Crump got to him?
          About the phone being in Miami, (Sorry, I don’t get to read all your posts) I was referring to you second posting when you believed TM left the phone and stash on the porch to be found by Tracy … and then returned to Miami. I don’t think that theory is totally wrong … except it make more sense that Stephen (the first one Tracy called) was the one who used and then DROVE the phone back to Miami.
          As to why Stephen was there. TM so much wanted a snack for himself and his little “brother” that he walked in the rain for two miles BUT when he got back, he never drank the watermelon juice or opened the candy? Does that make sense? It makes more sense that the two druggy cousins were trading some of their weed for the third ingredient of “Lean” So, Stephen walked to the cut-thru (with the identifying button) to see to the street without being observed by any gate security cameras. George happened on him and (in his stone washed blue jeans) Stephen ran back to TM (in his tan pants) on the porch.
          Then, TM may have been just going back to complete the 3 Amigo deal when his anger got the best of him and be played the “knockout game”. I know you didn’t like the 2 Trayvon theories, but If any phone logs ever see the light of day (with your new understanding of DD) what do you think now?

        Is a solemn day, a boy goes to check on his grandmother who is softly crying as she looks at a frame certificate.

        Hey Grandma was wrong?

        Is nothing sonny, I was just thinking of your grandfather. Did you know he was the first recipient of the TM Foundation scholarship fund.

        Really, no I did not know that, so is that whats making you sad?

        Yes, as a result of the efforts of the Family, the laws were changed, so when the men broke into the house your grandfather was defenseless. I tried to call the cops but by the time they got here, he was dead. They say they won’t charge the attacker because your grandfather stepped out into the porch. So now he is going to be released.

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around BDLR’s histronics about TCTH in court the other day, and his allegations about “doxing” the DeeDee. Why would BDLR even want to “go there” and open up an even bigger can of worms for himself? Put down the shovel, BDLR.

    Do they not understand that the DeeDee must fit the profile that they all alleged (“minor chile, puppy love, etc)? They can’t just miracle a 19 year old who fits none of the profile sold in the “narrative” and just go, “oh my bad”. Crump sold the story of a 16 yr old who needed to be sheltered from the evil press and public far and wide. There is no mistake or misunderstanding about what he, as an “Officer of the Court” alleged in numerous media interviews.

    Does the Scheme Team and Crump in particular really want to open the door to the broad range of discovery that would be available – and part of the public record – regarding any alleged “DeeDee”?
    That would be another opportunity to question how the “DeeDee” was “discovered”, and his role in same.

    BDLR also doesn’t seem to understand that a key component of “doxing” is intent to threaten, coerce or intimidate. Since that’s the only hammer the Scheme Team has in their toolbox, I guess they assume that everyone else uses intimidation and threats to advance their cause. Using logic I guess is something they don’t understand.

    And does the Scheme Team honestly think they are going to be able to continue to manufacture reasons why the “DeeDee” shouldn’t be called to the stand in open court so George can face his accuser, as is his right?

    I’m mystified at how this is a “win” for the State. If anything, it makes them all look like even bigger buffoons than previously – although I think the State’s admission at the first bond hearing that they had no evidence as to who started the confrontation or any evidence to refute George’s story, was the high water mark of this circus, but I may be gravely mistaken.

      I don’t think they will call Dee Dee. Crump hasn’t said peep about Dee Dee blowing anything out of the water lately. I expect Nelson will shield the ABC recordings from discovery. Denying the Crump depo, shielding W8 address and ABC recordings would likely result in reversal on appeal in event of conviction, which would lead to another trial, with full discovery regarding W8. I don’t think State or Scheme Team wants that. Simple solution: don’t call W8.

      “I’m mystified at how this is a “win” for the State.”

      Nelson denies immunity, jury acquits Z, Scheme Team sues HOA. Scheme Team happy, thanks Bondi and Scott, utters soothing words to calm the restless natives.

They showed all the news pulbicity from last year including the tape leaving off George saying “Okay” when he was told “We don’t need you to do that.” She started with, “Still ahead this morning on Starting Point It has been one year since 17 year old Trayvon Martin was gunned down in FL and it sparked a natiowide furor over race and SYG laws.” Still saying “gunned down.”

    She also had Nat Jackson on a panel discussing that 9 yr old rapper and I thought it was interesting that the two black women, Nat and Soledad, thought it was okay for him to be doing that.

    I struggle greatly with the words to write. I get stuck on the opening and the ending. The middle I see clearly. It’s almost like slow motion. I envision those last minutes. 7:17PM when the breathing stopped. Where it began is murky. Where it will end is confusing. But, I see the part where the story comes to a screeching halt. The pause button. February 26th. Not this year, but last year. The moment that one life will end and one life will be forever changed. I have gone over this moment in my head for a year. A year since a can of ice tea and a bag of skittles hit the ground with deafening silence in Sanford, Florida. A year since a grey hoodie went over the head of a young man trying to protect himself from the drizzling rain. A year since the death of the son that could have been the President’s son, but is in fact the son of Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton. A year since this American son, Trayvon Martin told his brother Jahvaris that he loved him. One year. It has been that long since I struggled with the words to write.

    When the words don’t come out, we don’t force them. We let our words come from our heart and whatever comes from our heart is what we were meant to say. On Sunday, I bought my unborn son his first hoodie. From the Gap. Gap Kids. My son is expected to enter this world on March 16th, but as far as we are concerned, he could come any day, so we have been doing a lot of shopping lately. I walked to the cash register with the hoodie in my hand, thinking about Trayvon with every step I took. I thought about the hoodie he wore on the night he died. Who bought him that hoodie? His father? His mother? I thought about how I would explain to my son that a hoodie is no longer just a hoodie. A hoodie is much more than something that protects you from the rain or keeps your head warm during the cold. I thought about the conversation I would have with my first child about a child I never knew. I would have to explain to him that Trayvon Martin’s death changed my life and I didn’t even know the young man. I walked with that hoodie in my hand, and as I got to the register, I couldn’t help but think about all of the parents who no longer buy clothes for their children. I grieve.

    I can’t comprehend the words that can be written about the loss of a child. I haven’t even met my son yet, and I couldn’t imagine losing him before it is my date to rest my eyes for the last time. The mother of my child shutters as I read her these words on paper and goes off to the bed. I understand why. The human mind should not be exposed to these type of thoughts. I ate dinner with Trayvon’s mother and father last night and as always, I was in awe of their strength, compassion and love. They were made no different than any of us, but somehow they have been able to carry this unbearable burden that seems impossible for any other person to bear. They carry on not just for themselves, but for all parents who were able to say “good morning” to their children as they awoke today. They know the feeling of an empty chair at the breakfast table. They know the feeling of homework that is no longer due. They know the feeling of birthday candles for an eighteenth birthday that were never blown out. They told me that they never want any other parent to have these feelings. They would rather carry these burdens alone, than see another family experience the year they have. That is what keeps them going. That is what gets them out of bed each day. However, today more than ever, they still need to be showered with love. As the bible says in Matthew 5:4, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Sybrina and Tracy, rest assured that the world mourns with you.

    A year later, in their mourning, they still want to make sure the world understands just how much they loved their son, and how that love continues to translate to the love of all children. And it was evident, when we sat down for dinner and the most caring words came out of Sybrina’s mouth when she said, “is the baby here yet?”

    I no longer struggle with the words to write. In the memory of Trayvon, I wear my hoodie today. In the anticipation of the birth of my first child, I wear my hoodie today. I hope you will join me.

None of them, it seems, to have questioned the idyllic family view that the PR firm put out for them. All have bought into this fantasy and expanded on it to the point that the TM is but a figment of their imagination, bearing no semblance of the real TM.

      I read this and other articles like it and you would get the sense that they know TM, intimately when in reality if TM had come walking down a dark alley they would be clutching their purses tighter or gripping their briefcases harder, looking around for escape routes. Perhaps it is the guilt they feel for this, that drives them to create a whole fantasy world for TM, a world that he did not live in.

      Regardless of the reason, these pathetic sad attempts at portraying TM as a victim in the face of evidence to the contrary. The fantastic creations of how TM life was, knowing that when he was alive, few if any cared, are truly stupefying and now quite annoying, and give license to other TM wannabes. Hopefully, some day they will wake up and say, what have I done? Somehow, I doubt it.

      Sybrina and Tracy haven’t stopped lying since this entire debacle began, starting with Tracy lying about the last time he saw St Skittles alive on the recorded NEN when he reported him missing, and Sybrina starting in with lying about why St Skittles had been suspended from school. (“tardiness?” ha!) The lure of cash and infamy overrides any concern for the basic concepts of our legal system.

      As for people who hide behind a computer screen and spew hatred, I guess you haven’t been over too very many of the pro-Martin sites, especially those managed by race-baiting whores.

      Why don’t you start spending your time more productively and start asking why all the lies, and why even the most basic questions are being ignored, and/or covered up by the media – beginning with the allegation that St Skittles wasn’t allowed to live with Sybrina, his birth mother, and was being raised by Trashcan Dad’s second wife, Alicia Martin. Ask, why would Sybrina lie about why St Skittles had been suspended from school, and rush to have this wonderful scholar/future astronaut’s school and disciplinary records “sealed” ?
      Why lie about the most inconsequential things, like “Iced Tea” vs. “Watermelon Juice Cocktail” , or the bigger things, like the mysterious DeeDee?

      Folks are at liberty to use screen names here as is quite normal practice in the innertubes. You didn’t know that? I guess that’s what you’re doing as well? That’s ok with us. Someone using a screen name is not an indictment of them: their own attitudes and words will do that.

      You are using Platte River Theology (2 inches deep and 2 miles wide) when you throw out the all-purpose doctrinal meme of “God is a God of love and not of hate.”

      You know neither the Scriptures nor the God of the Scriptures. You might want to exercise some care in how you gossip about Him and how you distort His identity and character.

      You forgot to accuse some of us of being white. An oversight on your part, I expect.

      Back on December 27, CORRECTION: It was February 21–just last week!… Surrealdreamer posted this comment:

      Hi, I came across your site by accident but realized after reading it that I have heard of it before. I am not a conservative nor am I a Liberal, I am an independent because I choose to think for myself rather than following someone elses ideology.

      I have spent alot of time following this case reading the evidence that has been released so far by both sides. The forensics, the autopsy reports etc. I have also read through all the documents on the GZlegalcase website. Unless there is some evidence that has not come out, it does not appear to favor George. Just based on what has been released so far is there something that I am missing? He seems to have alot of supporters on this site claiming the evidence shows he is innocent would you be so kind as to point me in the direction of that evidence? I feel as though I am missing something. Do you get the inside scoop from the defense because I have been unable to locate the information/evidence that many of the posters are using to claim George’s innocence?

      I have been struggling with wanting to donate to the GZ Legal defense fund but feel that I need to have all the evidence available to make an informed educated decision and so far the only evidence(autopsy reports, Osterman book, Forensics witness statements etc) have left me with the conlusion of guilt so if there is evidence you have or can lead me to, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

      By the way not that it should matter but I am a 40 year old white mother of 3 boys.

      —————

      Care to explain why you are so “shocked” today…and yet, back in December just last week, you just seemed so concerned. You were struggling. You wanted to donate. You wanted to be informed. But thank goodness you’re an independent thinker and don’t follow someone else’s ideology. At least there’s that.

It showed a very small number of people thought it was about race I believe it was 10% the majority of people were mad because of his age. They went on to show that people were scammed by the media and made to believe that Trayvon was some little boy and were very upset. They also went on to say that only 40% of people believe he is guilty. They showed the pics of George face and head and also showed an older pic of Trayvon.

        No. Zimmerman’s attorney plans to move to dismiss the case pursuant to Rule 3.190(b) and Chapter 776 of the Florida Statutes, more specifically pursuant to the immunity provision of 776.032. Inasmuch as Z had no opportunity or ability to retreat, the so-called SYG provisions of Chapter 776 are not relevant as Z would have been justified in shooting Martin even prior to enactment of the so-called SYG law.

        2. Proceedings are stayed absolutely or conditionally.
        3.-1. They are peremptorily stayed when the plaintiff is wholly incapacitated from suing; as, for example, when the plaintiff is not the holder, nor beneficially interested in a bill on which he has brought his action; 2 Cr, & M. 416; 2 Dowl. 336; Chitty on Bills, 335; 3 Chitty, Pr. 628; or when the plaintiff admits in writing, that he has no cause of action; 3 Chit. Prac. 370, 630; or when an action is brought contrary to good faith. Tidd’s Prac. 515, 529, 1134; 3 Chit. Pr. 633.
        4.-2. Proceedings are sometimes stayed until some order of the court shall have been complied with; as, when the plaintiff resides in a foreign country, or in another estate, or is insolvent, and he has been ruled to give security for costs, the proceedings are stayed until such security shall be given; see Security for Costs; 3 Chit. Pr, 633, 635; or until the payment of costs in a, former action. 1 Chit. R. 195; 18 E. C. L. R. 64.

        I don’t believe he’s had his deposition yet, (Actually I’m too lazy right now to look it up) so this would be a great question that MOM/West should ask along with a pic of the tweet.

          The theory has a problem if they drove why was Stephen or TM observed by GZ entering behind Frank’s house? If they drove home there would be no need to sneak around the back into the complex. Am I missing something?

            No. There are a couple theories that say when George first saw Travyon, it wasn’t that he had just come through the shortcut from the street. Rather, he was standing there near the shortcut WAITING for someone (to either drive or walk up from the street).

            What I meant was that Stephen dropped him off around there someplace near or at the 7-11 then drove back to his place. TM after going to the 7-11, walked back to RTL entering through the shortcut. I don’t believe anyone can account for Trayvon’s whereabouts for most all day that Sunday. Chad’s not talking and Tracy and Brandy were in Orlando. My guess is that Stephen DID NOT go back home right away like he said in his interview, but instead hung out with his cuz. He may have gone to the 7-11 that morning, but I’ll bet it was later in the morning than 8:30. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Does anyone here really believe he hung out with the video-game playing Chad? I do NOT.

            I’ve convinced myself that Stephen stayed with him until he dropped him off near that 7-11 and drove home.

              Now that makes more sense to me. Him volunteering that he took TM to the 7-11, to get a smoke, always sounded fishy to me, no reason to volunteered that type of information.

              This means that Chad is lying, which may explain why he did not know what time TM left the house.

        The problem with this exercise is we do not really know that TM was even at Brandy’s before leaving the 7-11 and “walking back”. Tracy and Brandy were not there and saw him leave and Chad, is not saying much of anything. TM could have spent the whole day with Stephen as far as we know.

        I’m not sure if CNN ever posted a small headline saying “FBI found no Racism”…..something to that effect…..under MOM after he said that.
        Piers cut it off quickly after that.
        Not much to report on the case anymore that racism is out of the picture.
        I also notice Sharpton on his show today with the family and he stated “no bricks were thrown, no one was hurt because of this case” paraphrasing again……..Which is complete BS.

        Yeah, legally none of the evidence “shows” or “proves” anything until it happens in court. So MOM is using the more technically correct word “suggests”. But even so…. I REALLY wish he wouldn’t do that.

          I just realized something, it might be nothing, but the tone today from both camps sound more conciliatory, subdue. Trying to keep things tamped down. You have the Scheme Team claiming that the protest were peaceful, nobody got hurt. MOM as always saying that it appears GZ is innocent, that SYG is a bad law, but GZ is not using it.

          Compared to Johnathan Capehart, Skolnik and others the people involved sound detach, now this may be just because of the occasion. But, I am wondering has some sort of deal been struck, and the camps are laying the ground work for a resolution?

      Just minded his own P’s and q’s (IMO). Remember, prosecution is watching him like a hawk. BDLR not only mentioned TCTH, but he also mentioned MOM’s media appearances.

        Ah, he really said something like that? Good deal. He could have sat there taking five minutes to explain why the whole “told not to follow” thing is garbage, but MUCH better to just convince people to decide for themselves. “Listen to the tape… CAREFULLY, more than once if you need to. THEN get back to me.” Yeah, good deal.

    WOW! Just took a break about hr ago and ran to Wendys to get a late burger. Oh my gosh, police came flying in 10 cars total. Well I went next door to McDonalds, as I couldnt get out of parking area. Then ambulance, THEN Medical Helicopter. I mean it was ALL LOUD AND LITE UP!!! Made me wonder about Chad…. dont buy it! ( Mgr in MickyD’s said reg Officer came thru and said that some man was stabbed in stomach and were coming from another town. Guessing maybe didnt know where hospital was? who knows, I guess was pretty serious because of the helicopter, but no one was running or moving extremely fast, which I took as good thing)

    Dershowitz enraged Cory last summer when he criticized her prosecution tactics, so much so that she called the Dean of Harvard Law School, where he teaches, to complain and reportedly threatened to sue for libel.

    But the threat has not stopped Dershowitz from expressing his opinion about her.

    “[Zimmerman] certainly can’t get a fair trial prosecuted by the terrible, terrible prosecutor who is bringing this case to trial,’’ Dershowitz told Malzberg.

    “Look, Trayvon Martin was a victim who shouldn’t have died and in my view there’s a lot of moral responsibility on the shoulders of Zimmerman.

    “The question is, is it a criminal responsibility? And if it is a criminal responsibility, of what degree? It’s certainly not the kind of murder charge that he’s now facing
