I saw what you guys did there Ben and Bruce

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Greetings to all:

This post substantially exceeds my typical post. I had a lot to say, however, and I have been rewriting and fine tuning this piece since Tuesday night.

As you all know, Benjamin Crump represents Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. He negotiated a settlement agreement earlier this year with the Homeowner’s Association at the Retreat at Twin Lakes (the HOA) whereby Trayvon’s parents agreed not to sue the HOA for the wrongful death of their son in exchange for the HOA paying them a certain sum of money. Although the specific terms of the agreement and the amount of the settlement have not been released to the public, I believe we can reasonably conclude that the HOA agreed to settle the case before trial because they believe that the jury will reject Zimmerman’s self-defense claim. If they had concluded that the jury would find him “Not Guilty,” they would not have had any reason to settle the case.

Benjamin Crump filed a copy of the confidential settlement agreement in Zimmerman’s criminal case file late last week after blacking out the settlement amount. He also provided copies to Bernie de la Rionda and Mark O’Mara.

The Clerk of the Court has since notified Crump that she does not believe she has a proper legal basis to keep the terms of the settlement agreement confidential. She told him that she will unseal the settlement agreement in 10 days, unless he obtains an order from Judge Nelson telling her not to do that.

Regardless what she does, the amount of the settlement probably will remain confidential since he blacked out the amount before he filed the agreement.

Since Crump was not required to announce or to file the settlement agreement, I have been attempting to figure out why he decided to file it and why he waited until the end of last week to do it.

I believe I know the answer.

When considered together with O’Mara’s recent decision to forego an immunity hearing later this month, members of the public now have two solid reasons to doubt O’Mara’s credibility and to question everything he has stated about the case. There cannot be any doubt that this is a devastating turn of events for the man who decided long ago to focus on wining his case in the court of public opinion where he believed he could control the message reported by the media before the trial started and hope that would somehow favorably influence a jury to find the defendant not guilty, despite the evidence. That strategy is falling apart.

I never believed his strategy made any sense unless he got very lucky and a racist Zimmerman supporter lied his way onto the jury with the intent of voting “not guilty,” regardless of the evidence. That seems about as likely to me as filling an inside straight on the draw in a game of poker. In other words, only suckers make that bet.

The inescapable reality is that this case will go to trial eventually and when it does, the jury will be instructed to decide the case based only on the evidence admitted during the trial. That jury, BTW, will have been screened as thoroughly as possible by the juror questionnaire and the use of individual voir dire to identify and excuse prospective jurors who may be biased or prejudiced.

Another inescapable reality is that the evidence admitted during the trial is going to paint a far different picture of the case against the defendant compared to the false and misleading narrative that O’Mara has been repeating at every available opportunity since he got involved in the case. To the extent that any members of the jury recall what he said before trial, they will soon realize that he did not know what he was talking about or he was lying. That most definitely is not a thought that O’Mara wants any juror to have during the trial.

Sooner or later, he will have to face the jury and present a coherent final argument for acquittal based on the evidence admitted during the trial.

Meanwhile, Mark O’Mara and Don West have been subjecting Benjamin Crump to a relentless effort to obtain a court order authorizing them to depose him regarding his contacts with W8, the witness known by the pseudonym Dee Dee assigned to her by the prosecution to protect her privacy. attack on his character and professional reputation in an effort to discredit W8, the witness known by the pseudonym Dee Dee assigned to her by the prosecution to protect her privacy.

Cellular phone records establish that Dee Dee and Trayvon spent many hours on their phones talking to each other on the day that George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon. In fact the records show that their phones were connected [detail]. Therefore, Dee Dee is the only witness who was in contact with Trayvon during the approximate 30 minute period leading up to his death. In effect, she is Trayvon’s voice from the grave and she presents a problem to the defendant’s claim of self-defense because she told Bernie de la Rionda that Trayvon told her he was afraid of. He told her that he ran to escape from the creepy man and believed he had successfully eluded him until the man suddenly appeared nearby on foot. She heard Trayvon say, “What are you following me for? She heard a deeper voice respond, “What are you doing here? Then she heard what sounded like physical contact between the two followed by Trayvon screaming, “Get off.” She lost the connection and was unable to reconnect with Trayvon.

George Zimmerman fired the fatal shot approximately one minute later.

That shot is preceded by an agonized shriek that abruptly ends with the sound of the fatal gunshot. The shriek sounds inhuman and it lasts for 40 seconds. It sounds like a desperate and panicked child protesting the certainty of imminent death without knowing who is going to kill him and why he going to do it. The shriek is audible in the background of a recorded 911 call from a neighbor who lived close to the scene of the shooting.

The shriek far exceeds any horror that I have witnessed and it will likely continue to haunt me for the rest of my life.

The combination of Dee Dee’s testimony and the shriek pose a major problem to the defendant’s claim of self-defense.

The defense scheme to discredit Dee Dee and blame Ben Crump for suborning perjury for dollars

To cast doubt on Dee Dee’s credibility, Mark O’Mara and Don West have accused her of committing perjury and Ben Crump of suborning her perjury. Never mind that they have no evidence to support their claim that she committed perjury. However, they do have her admission that she lied to Bernie de la Rionda while under oath when she told him that she did not go to Trayvon’s funeral or wake because she was sick and stayed overnight in a hospital. Apparently, despite the lack of materiality, which is an essential element of a perjury charge, they believe that admission is sufficient to support an accusation that everything she said was a lie.

Calling her an admitted perjurer, they now accuse Ben Crump of convincing her to lie. They are basically accusing him of providing her with a script full of lies to repeat when she testifies at trial.

Yes indeed, despite a lack of any evidence O’Mara and West have accused Ben Crump of concocting a scheme to have Dee Dee lie during the trial in order to fool the jury into wrongfully convicting an innocent George Zimmerman of second degree murder thereby setting up multi-million dollar causes of action against George Zimmerman for wrongful death and the Homeowner’s Association for negligently appointing and failing to supervise his activities as the captain of the neighborhood watch program contributing to the wrongful death of Trayvon Martin.

Finally, they claim they must be permitted to depose him under oath regarding this scheme in order to adequately prepare for trial.

Even though there is no evidence that Benjamin Crump encouraged or attempted to encourage Dee Dee to lie about what Trayvon told her and even though there were other witnesses present when he interviewed her by telephone that the defense has not attempted to interview or to depose, defense counsel continue to repeat their false allegations about Benjamin Crump and insist that the defense will suffer irreparable harm if the court does not authorize the deposition. Of course, they do not explain why they would suffer irreparable harm.

Benjamin Crump actually is the person most likely to suffer irreparable harm, if the court were to authorize the deposition since he cannot answer any question regarding any discussions he had with his clients about Dee Dee and the civil causes of action against the HOA and George Zimmerman because those discussions were confidential and protected from disclosure by the attorney-client privilege. Discussions with his clients about George Zimmerman’s credibility and the probable result of his self-defense claim are also protected from disclosure by the attorney-client privilege. In addition, he cannot provide any notes he made regarding the questions that he decided to ask her and her responses to those questions since that subject matter is protected from disclosure as attorney work product. In addition, he would be justified in refusing to answer any questions about his plans to sue George Zimmerman. In short, there are very few questions that he could answer, if a deposition were to take place.

With his motives, character and professional reputation under relentless attack by defense counsel and unable to defend himself due to the attorney-client and work product privileges, Benjamin Crump did the only sensible thing he could do under the circumstances. He retained Bruce Blackwell to speak for him and defend him from the attempted character assassination.

Judge Nelson denied their motion to depose Ben Crump with a written opinion in which she found that as attorney for Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, Ben Crump’s communications with them are protected from disclosure by the attorney-client privilege. She also ruled that he acted as opposing counsel when he recorded a telephonic interview with Dee Dee in early March and provided the FBI with the original recording. This finding is significant because an attorney cannot depose opposing counsel under Florida law. She also ruled that his efforts to locate and interview Dee Dee constituted attorney work product protected from disclosure. She summarily denied their motion to reconsider and clarify her decision.

They have now filed for a writ of certiorari in the Court of Appeals asking it to reverse Judge Nelson’s decision and order Ben Crump to submit to a deposition.

The Court of Appeals entered an order yesterday granting Bernie de la Rionda and Bruce Blackwell 20 days to respond to the defendant’s petition.

I believe Bruce Blackwell and Benjamin Crump decided to file the settlement agreement to accomplish two objectives:

1. To place indisputable documentary evidence in the record to support his claim that he represents Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton and that he acted on their behalf contrary and in opposition to George Zimmerman’s best interests in his criminal case. The agreement also firms up his argument that he is opposing counsel as it indicates his intent to sue George Zimmerman for causing the wrongful death of their son, Trayvon, after the criminal trial concludes.

2. To figuratively smack Mark O’Mara, Don West and their client where it hurts the most on the eve of trial by publicizing documentary evidence that Zimmerman’s employer, the HOA, does not believe Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense will prevail at the trial. Coming on the heels of O’Mara’s decision to waive the immunity hearing, which he attempted to conceal by falsely claiming he could always bring it up later, publication of the settlement agreement sends a clear message to anyone following the case that the defense is in deep trouble, notwithstanding O’Mara’s massive propaganda effort to convince the public that the prosecution has no case.

Lawyers are required to have a good faith basis for the statements, arguments and objections they make. They are prohibited from knowingly or intentionally misleading the Court. The defense attack on Ben Crump and Dee Dee is based on a fanciful theory that is not supported by the evidence or the law. For those two reasons, I do not believe the defense effort to discredit and demonize Dee Dee and Crump is being made in good faith. Instead, the defense effort reminds me of political strategies and arguments that Andrew Breitbart used to discredit Democratic Party candidates for national office. Such strategies and arguments have no place in a court of law.

Efforts to discredit people by character assassination, uttering false statements and misrepresenting existing evidence can cause unpleasant real-life consequences to the people targeted. Therefore, I am not only offended by the defense team’s choice of tactics, I am disgusted that the defense team decided to harm Dee Dee’s reputation and Ben Crump’s professional representation.

Good lawyers take pride in what they do and they do not tolerate unfounded attacks on their character and reputation. I believe Ben Crump and Bruce Blackwell are extremely offended by the continuing bad faith defense effort to discredit Dee Dee and destroy Ben Crump’s professional reputation with false statements and misrepresentation of existing evidence.

I think they decided to file the settlement agreement to counter the defense team’s false narrative and misleading argument that there is no evidence that refutes the defendant’s claim of self-defense.

    • pasafist! LOL 😆
      except I kept getting the urge to kick his teeth out when I watched his stupid shit eating grin on Hannity. it was overwhelming.. I still get that feeling when I see a still of it to this day.

      • Rachael says:

        At least I know it isn’t just me. It really is like a reflex thing for me. And yes, it was and is still overwhelming.

    Duping Delight

    What is he pulling on us? Maybe he didn’t get his legal fees paid by Hannity, but he’s all (taking a cue from LLMPsps) ‘Chits n’ giggles’ when Hannity asks him to clear up, no legal fees paid thing. He got something for his appearance, and he delighted in the dupe.

    • ay2z says:

      (apologies Papa! Durned cat, can’t even blame for that typo!)

    • Rachael says:

      There is just something about that smirk that triggers my slapping reflex and makes me want to slap his lips right off of his face. And yes, it is very noticeable that it is there at all kinds of inappropriate times, not just when Hannity asks about legal fees – but watch him when he says that he said punks not coons.

      You know, until I saw GZ, I never even knew I had a slapping reflex.

      • ay2z says:

        Yes!

        (and in the interview with Serino, when he answers if he has trouble with black people?

        The answer is different than other ‘no’ answers. More like ‘No-oh-ho-ho-ho’ with that sorta chuckle inflection.)

        • PiranhaMom says:

          @ay2z.

          Of course Zimmerman would chuckle over Serino’s question about “You have any problem with Back people?”

          1) Zimmerman may be dumb as a peachpit, but if he knew if he uttered one racist word in acknowledment, he would be nailed on racial profiling;

          2) As was evident, he has no problems with Blacks — within 10 minutes he shoots them. End of any potential “problem.”

      • ay2z says:

        Need a Monty Python Video Making Kit for your slap reflex. Don’t have one. 😦

      • Rachael says:

        I just don’t know what it is. I can have someone yell at me, get in my face and curse at me and I can deal with it. But that smirk is SO disrespectful and SO full of BS that it really makes me want to slap him. I don’t know how to explain it. It is just this automatic thing, like when you step on a rake and it hits you in the face (believe it or not, I did do that once as a kid to see if it was like in the cartoons – yes, it was and I did see stars). It is that automatic and that fast. I see that smirk and smack!

      • ay2z says:

        Rachel, it’s the sideways ‘I’m pulling one on you’ smirk, obviously pulling one over on the ‘masses’ is disrespecful and we are especially taken back as he does this on his big self-promo show as he talks about following and killing the unarmed child. He entered that confrontation knowing full well he could start something and in the darkness, before time ran out to do it, he could use his preparation to killl and become the hero he always imagined himself to be.

        He actually broke into full smiles as he pulled this off.

      He will be more than deserving of the beat down that he will get, when he is locked up in a Florida prison. BTW, he won’t be in PC forever and, even then if someone wants to get to his ass bad enough they will find a way to do so. they are waiting for him and, it’s quite evident.

      • Rachael says:

        And not only interview, but say you have no regrets, would have done nothing different and it is all God’s plan. I don’t even believe in “God,” but that remark, on top of all else in that interview is where I lost any ability to give GZ ANY benefit of doubt.

  6. Why can’t the Orlando Sentinel hire a decent journalist? I mean really!

    Crump: Don’t unseal the $1 million-plus settlement Trayvon’s parents received

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-trayvon-hoa-settlement-crump-argument-20130415,0,3666179.story

    Benjamin Crump has formally asked Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson to make sure the specific amount of the $1 million-plus settlement Trayvon Martin’s parents reached with George Zimmerman’s home owners’ association be kept secret.

    Trayvon’s parents, Crump wrote, “in no way wanted their son killed in order to pursue a civil settlement.”

    Crump is the attorney for Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, and on April 4, Crump filed a copy of the settlement under seal in George Zimmerman’s court case file at the Seminole County Courthouse.

    A portion of it was available to the public for a short time the following day, but the total amount and the names of the parties making the settlement payments had been edited out.

    On April 4, Seminole County Clerk of Courts Maryanne Morse notified Crump that she intended to unseal it, saying it did not meet the legal standard required of a confidential filing.

    • Trained Observer says:

      Actually, I think this is one of Stutzman’s more serviceable bare bones pieces — except for the part about figures and payers being “edited out.” Those specifics were redacted. At least in this report, she managed to present two views and some background on the clerk’s position.

      If the Sentinel had anything on the ball, however, it would dig deeper and find some on-the-record sources willing to provide insights reflected in the professor’s Ben and Bruce post.

      Sentinel subscribers/readers deserve to know not only who’s doing and saying what, but why they’re doing it.

    An email i sent to mister nutcracker….Kelly Payne
    Dear Mr cracker or Bradman which ever you prefer. Your continued lies and slander against Trayvon and his family are quite disgusting. You know as well as i do That Trayvon was not killed in self defense. You also know as well as i do that Trayvon was begging for his life when he was killed. You know as well as i do that Zimmerman had Trayvon restrained by his shirts when he killed him. Trayvon was no match for a 208lb bouncer by himself in a fair fight Zimmerman could have snapped his neck like a twig. But we know based on the evidence you chose to ignore that Trayvon never touched him. In a fair fight the police would have found an unconscious teenager and an angry adult. Whether Trayvon missed 53 days of school is unknown,but highly unlikely because in most states if your child missed more than 20 he is called truant and the parents are taken to court. There are no known reports of Trayvon being deeply involved in drugs. Smoking weed a few times with your friends does not make you deeply involved in drugs.Also not relevant Another one of your lies. You are taking advantage of peoples ignorance and stupidity. The only one with a thug history is Zimmerman. Now you have a new one,Trayvon has a suppressed Criminal record. he never had any record. you are making assumptions and lying. No one knows why he was transferred from his other school there was a rumor he was bullied at that other school which was never confirmed. Also not relevant. You mention MMA style blows. an obvious lie. Trayvon never knew martial arts mixed or otherwise.If he had Zimmerman would have ended up in the hospital and Trayvon would still be alive. The man who said that has changed his story numerous times. His gun was on his right rear hip. It would have been impossible for him to grab it the way he described. Trayvon would never have seen it. the only way he could have grabbed his gun the way he described is if he knocked trayvon off then grabbed his gun aimed and shot him. His head was never repeatedly slammed into the sidewalk for nearly a minute.If it had he would not have been in any condition to fire a gun.Those injuries on the back of his head are 1 round puncture wound and 1 inch long cut.the blood from those wounds flow toward his face.He was not on his back when he got those injuries. . He did not get those from a side walk. He got those from a metal object. Trayvon never tried to smother him another obvious lie. He was never punched in the face 12 times or 30-40 times. All he had were scratches. no bruising no swelling no black eyes no broken nose. As for lying Zimmerman has done nothing but lie. maybe you and him belong together. Whether Dee Dee went to Trayvon’s funeral or to the hospital or somewhere is irrelevant and not material to the case.the only thing relevant is why there was a funeral in the first place.
    If Zimmerman had left Trayvon alone he wouldn’t be in trouble. You continue to trot out that lie that Trayvon was a gang member despite the fact he was unarmed. No gang member goes anywhere with out their weapons which these days would be a gun. If trayvon had been a gang member he would have put a bullet in his head just for following him. And we would never have heard of Zimmerman he would just be another statistic. You call trayvon a thug while trying to intimidate a witness. Which as it turned out those girls were not the Dee Dee you have been looking for. Keep it up when you get criminal charges you will have no one to blame but yourself. You so called conservatives always talk about morals christian values honesty and decency. You have no morals you are not honest and you were never a decent man. You are not a christian either. A true christian would not pull the crap you’ve been pulling and he would not support a murderer and slander a murder victim. I can’t speak for the Martin/Fulton family but if it were me i would have sued you long ago. So keep.posting those lies. You will eventually Dig yourself a hole you can’t get out of. There is never a justification for killing an unarmed person,especially a kid. If someone hits you you hit them back you don’t use a gun. Have a nice day KELLY D PAYNE

      @Kelly, this is very well spoken and straight to the point. from what I’ve heard or read, there will be some people at the tree stump facing charges for their evil deeds and, they will be well deserved. it’s OK for ignorant people to support someone who has killed an innocent child in cold blood. but, they do not have to smear and slander this child and his family, and this is exactly what these IGNORANT DISRESPECTFUL IMBECILES have been doing since day one.

      They were dog whistled out of their respective closets by of all people, a man of the cloth. imagine that, a man who some call Reverend has involved himself in this most despicable campaign of defaming a murdered child. may this man burn in hell for all of eternity because, there is no way St Peter will even look at him, let alone give his ass a pass to walk through the pearly gates of heaven.

      His wretched old bigoted racist hands should burn each and every time he touches a bible. this just goes to show, that even the devil can say that he’s been called to preach. but, the devil can do a lot as it goes, the devil can preach, the devil can sing but most of all, “THE DEVIL CAN’T PRAY.”

        @Kelly, if you are asking me if I’m saying that SDC is a preacher, no I’m talking about someone else who is actually a preacher, who was very instrumental in starting this smear campaign of Trayvon, not long after he was murdered. I don’t remember the man’s name right now but, he is suppose to be a man of the cloth, when he is actually the devil himself.

        FROM THE DESK OF LONNIE STARR:

        Let’s be clear. Like the false narrative of Trayvon fighting with GZ that could not possibly have happened at all, without Trayvon getting some evidence of it on his hands and/or sleeves. We have another false narrative here, that is causing people to think that slandering Trayvon Martin might, somehow prove Fogen innocent. The truth is it cannot.

        It could be discovered that Trayvon was the reincarnation of Al Capone, the Marquis de Sade, Mephistopheles and Jack the Ripper all rolled into one. It would have absolutely no bearing on this case at all, and cannot even be allowed into evidence!

        Why? Well, because there is absolutely no possible way to create any foundation, that is needed to make such fact relevant. Fogen did not say “I know from the records I’ve read of this suspicious persons history, that he is a terrible criminal who will do terribly and dangerous things”. What he said, in fact was: ” There’s a black guy walking in the rain who I don’t know from Adam. I’ve never seen him before, so I don’t know anything about him. But, I’ve made up my mind that he’s a horrible person about to do terrible things, even though I have absolutely no good reason to feel this way!”

        Fogen’s right to act on his imaginings ends with calling NEN! Anything more he decides to do, based upon his suspicions, are things that he has not only agreed not to do, but some of which will also be illegal.

        Thus, all proving that Trayvon had a history of violence would do in this case is, establish that he was able to defend himself! While the law says that according to the evidence and testimony, he clearly has a legal right to do so. So, at law, there is nothing at all to be gained by proving Trayvon Martin was anything more than a physically disadvantaged victim.

        Vilifying Trayvon is a useless exercise that will bear no fruit at trial. Since proving him capable of self defense, does nothing to prove that he wasn’t a victim of unlawful transgression upon his rights. Thus this useless exercise will only serve to make jurors even more unlikely to believe the false story of innocence that Fogen is trying to sell. Any and all efforts spent to this end will be summarily wiped out by the judges instructions to the jury, which will say that Trayvon had a right to defend himself, if Fogen had given him cause to fear for his safety. NOT who threw the first punch, but, who first broke the rules and the law.

NOT who threw the first punch, but, who first broke the rules and the law.

          BINGO!

          It’s my impression that the Zidiots believe that if they can somehow prove that Trayvon was a thug, it will prevail over the charging affidavit that GZ wrongfully profiled Trayvon. However, as you have also correctly pointed out, GZ admitted to knowing nothing about Trayvon other than his physical appearance.

          In case anyone hasn’t noticed, Zidiots are going by the charging affidavit attempting to taint each fact, starting with GZ’s admitted following of Trayvon, then to DeeDee, and now to the profiling. They are kicking against the bricks because none of their theories prove that GZ killed Trayvon in self-defense

Fogen didn’t have the right to stop and question Adolph Hitler, let alone shoot if, if he saw him walking down Main St. It’s a fact, but he has the right to profile, stalk, detain and murder a minor child for walking in the rain.

        From the desk of RACHAEL S

        Exactly. There is NOTHING there that happened back THEN that has anything to do with what happened that night. They can look for all the dirt on Trayvon they want, but even if he did smoke or even sell pot, even if he did steal some jewelry, even if he did pain graffiti, NONE of that has ANYTHING to do with that night. GZ did NOT see Trayvon smoking or selling drugs, he did NOT see Trayvon stealing any jewelry, he did NOT see Trayvon painting any graffiti. He called the police because in his mind, Trayvon looked suspicious.

        At that point, there was NOTHING more GZ should have done. He had called the police, it was their job to check it out and his job to get out of it.

        Instead he got in and messed things up. He killed a kid, he messed up his own life that was already a mess, he has caused all of this because of his own selfish desire to get himself into it, to be a hero, whatever, and if that group of refuse at the outhouse wants to talk law suits, it is the police who should be suing GZ for all the extra work that he made them do, the trauma they had to deal with – believe me, police officers do NOT like looking at dead kids and well, I’m just getting off on a tangent here.

        But no matter how bad you make Trayvon, his family, DeeDee, their dog, their cat, whatever look, it has nothing to do with that night and there is nothing in that “bomb” that SD dropped that has any bearing on the fact that GZ shot and killed Trayvon who, by his own statement, was doing nothing more than walking in the rain and somehow did not look right to him.

        GZ on his own admission took anything after that on himself. And there is a REASON the police tell laymen not to take it upon themselves. There are reasons why NW rules tell people not to take these things on themselves. And GZ has just provided the perfect example of why not to.

        Trayvon isn’t there to tell us what happened that night so we can only go by what we know. We know that GZ pursued, shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Anything else we don’t know, we only have the word of a liar with a previous background. All the thugification and all the villianization of Trayvon and his family doesn’t change the facts.

        We can only go by what we DO know. And we ALL know what that is.

        Xena, wasn’t the news reporting about the jewelry and screwdriver based on a word of mouth account? Well, I call that heresy. I am sure that O’Mara found nothing about it in Trayvon’s school records. Also, Trayvon was never arrested or charged with anything.

I believe there is a reason for this and that the reason is something we probably cannot guess, at least at this point.

  11. LeaNder says:

    To Southern Lady and other’s who are interested in Rene Stutzman, sorry, I have no time to proofread this, and the whole exchange would be to long. It’s long now anyway. I hope you understand:

    Trayvon Martin’s parents settle wrongful-death claim

    During an interview in February, Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, said Trayvon’s parents had tried to settle through mediation and the association or its insurer had offered $1 million, but Trayvon’s parents had rejected that amount.

    O’Mara said the two parties then renewed talks and agreed to settle several months ago.

    Contacted by Walter.Steinway-at-gmailcom what interview she was referring to, she answered it was an interview by herself with O’Mara on February 26, 2013. Asked for more exact details, she did not respond anymore anymore.

    A rather complicated series of exchanges with the inbound service department on Orlando Sentinel if they could provide more details finally led to this:

    We are happy to inform you that we found an article from Rene Stutzman on February 26, 2013 edition. The title was “On anniversary of Trayvon’s death, quest for answers, healing continues” it was in section A1. We regret to inform you that you need to sign up online to get an access or view our website.

    Look that up yourself, as far as I can tell at least the online version of this article contains no trace of O’Mara see February 25, 2013: “Anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death: A time of waiting.”

    Now this is her latest response to me, I cc’d my question to Howard Greenberg her boss, somehow hoping this might help. Again asking for her help concerning “the interview” she had with O’Mara supposedly on February 26.

    Am I supposed to believe she interviewed O’Mara before the printing process was completed and the paper sent out in the early morning hours after midnight? Which strictly would make it February 26. But she clearly picked up on the narrative provided to me by the service lady, and her earlier confirmation of the date of the interview to Walter. I have not mentioned a video in mail, but I asked the service for that two. So she may have looked into these exchanges.

    Sorry, German header, I also need to exchange arrows around her email address with square brackets, otherwise the WordPress software will read it as an html tag seemingly making disappear at least in my htlm preview website, my emphasis:

    Ms. [name deleted],

    There is not a significant difference between the print edition version of the story and the online version.

    O’Mara and I talked about several issues related to the Zimmerman case during that Feb. 26 interview, but little of what he said appeared in that story. We did not publish the interview in its entirety nor is there video of it.

    Thanks.

    No idea when she interviewed him, but considering, and strictly I do not believe a word she writes apart from the fact that she spoke at length with O’Mara, but also doubt it was on February 26, when details fit all to well into an article in April. Besides I find her choice of date maybe since I do not believe it slightly provocative.

    Wouldn’t it make much more sense in the context of the latest Team Fogen motions she ardently supported?

    • Rachael says:

      VERY interesting.

    • amsterdam1234 says:

      Nice job, LeaNder. Stutzman is such a tool.

    • Good job, LeaNder! Mad props!

    • Trained Observer says:

      Other than the ongoing consensus on Stutzman’s remarkably mediocre to sub-par reporting, I think the current beef is mostly a waste of time to chew on here.

      Stutzman likely puts in a call to O’Mara’s office at least daily, if not several times daily. She’s been tailgating him for more than a year now as part of her job, during which time they’ve talked face-to-face, one-on-one, at press conferences, via phone, via e-mail, and with voice-mail messages. She may have a cache of unpublished quotes that she’s holding in abeyance for down the line. Or not.

      MOM may have tipped her about the settlement weeks ago, but off the record. Or maybe he never said a word, but due to shabby writing and/or sloppy editing, he often appears to be her source. It’s pretty clear to me that BDLR isn’t playing ball with anyone out there in media land.

      Hence it’s easy for Stutzman to be criticized for hanging on to O’Mara’s every word. He’s all she has, given that it’s also fairly obvious that the Sentinel has not (as of yet) staffed up to cover this case as did media for the Sandusky scandal. One former South Florida reporter won a Pulitzer for her breaking news stories on Penn State’s coverup.

      One thing to know: Some newspaper lawyers advise reporters to get rid of their sourcebooks and notes on napkins the moment a story hits print. It’s a protective mechanism, and the thinking is that what gets published is what stands. If it didn’t get published, whoever said what and when they said it doesn’t count. The message: “so don’t bother to subpoena our reporters’ notes cause we ain’t got any.”

      That doesn’t mean raw copy originally filed by the reporter before an editor gets hold of it doesn’t remain in the system for a while. But not forever.

      Other things to know: The on-line product for metro dailies has become a beast constantly needing to be fed. What gets posted online frequently gets updated, but that has no bearing on what gets published in print for home delivery or inother print editions for newsstand sales.

      In many if not most cases, different editors deal with print than do the on-line product. Reporters love to bitch and moan about this.

      Nobody’s going to heap accolades onto the Sentinel for its overall coverage of this tragedy, or hand Stutzman high praise for her reportage.

      But in my opinion, copying Howard Greenberg or hassling staffers on timing of interviews or where and when Stutzman got her info is a total waste of time except for creating plenty of laughs in the newsroom. All that will be forthcoming, and typicallyfrom a clerical type, at that, is a PBO — polite brush off.

      • LeaNder says:

        thanks, Trained Observer, exquisite response.

        consensus on Stutzman’s remarkably mediocre to sub-par reporting

        Yes, shoddy reporting, but if I may beg to differ slightly. The Orlando Sentinel had a clear pro SPD and now has a clear pro defense slant, to the point of printing Madame Zimmerman’s letter and ignoring the response by the family. Also leading the pack concerning the get Crump crowd. And this special addition triggered quite a bit of the kind of voices all over the comment sections that picked it up, I detest to read. To be quite honest.

        Also, the questions never end, strictly I wonder if that not only has Howard Greenberg’s consent but is what he wants the reporting to be like? … That was what the cc was for among others. Not a good point maybe, but strictly an angle that even influenced the NYT whose “journalist” copied exactly that passage dropping the “interview” only. Which as I wrote on a different thread, Jeff Weiner avoided who clearly stated in the only time he used the word interview in the Orlando’s Zimmerman reporting thus: in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel. Why did she want to disguise it was her own interview? Or do you think the editor cut that out? Would both editors in print and online edition agree to cut it out? Why not in Weiner’s story then?

        Interesting too, since it shows us that O’Mara not only knew but spoke to her about matters while he had West mainly write the motions concerning Benjamin Crump’s deposition, arguing that Crump wasn’t “opposing counsel”.

        Was it more a generally discussion concerning this core aspect of the case for several month now the two had and it suddenly entered her mind while reporting on the settlement?

        Besides I am still trying to get hold of the article she alludes to. For one reason only, I want to know if that angle is still stronger in the print edition which may well influence jury members. Since I gave up on dealing with the service and the tricks that keep foreigners out due to missing US zip codes and addresses and phone numbers, this is my only hope. Unfortunately while the article links to them, they do not list the Orlando Sentinel in their database of newspapers covered.

        O’Mara and I talked about several issues related to the Zimmerman case during that Feb. 26 interview, but little of what he said appeared in that story.

        She didn’t cite him at all in the online edition. Does she occasionally not cite him but simply give voice to him through his articles without attributing it to him?

        I want to know what specific angle people in the area are presented with via her articles in the print editions. If there is a difference and it is even worse there?

        Concerning the laugh for the newsroom, I am absolutely pleased, if I could help with a good one. Laughter is the most important mood enhancer. So yes, why not?

        I am simply picking up with unitron’s obsession with media misinformation from a slightly different angle, you know.

      • Trained Observer says:

        LeaNder What does Howard Greenberg want reporting to be like? These days, I think he wants it to be … veeeery safe and non-actionable.

        Tribune Co. earlier this year emerged from a protracted bankruptcy and it’s still not out of the woods financially. Circulation and readership continues to decline.

        Amid Tribune personnel carnage at every level, Howard Greenberg, thus far, has been an executive survivor, just as Stutzman has avoided getting the “you’ve just been down-sized, here’s your severance package ” tap on the shoulder that has decimated Trib newsrooms.

        One thing ‘sfor sure: Greenberg comes not from the newsroom, but from ranks of advertising and marketing. He cares about making money, not so much about snappy headlines, relentless, insightful reporting or journalism prizes. And he sure as hell doesn’t want his papers plagued by any lawsuits. Many South Floridians figure he’s where he is at the moment to affect a merger between the Sentinel and the Sun-Sentinel.

        Here’s a bio snippet : Howard Greenberg, President and CEO of Sun-Sentinel Company of Tribune Publishing Co., Inc. since May 29, 2007 also has been publisher of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel of Tribune Co., since May 2007, and has been an Interim publisher of Orlando Sentinel Communications Co. since February 2008. He served as Senior V.P. and General Manager of Sun-Sentinel Company since April 2005 and was promoted to Managing Director. He had been with the Fort Lauderdale-based Sun-Sentinel since 1984. He’s served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for The Broward Alliance, Broward County’s public/private economic development organization, and serves as a board member for the Jack & Jill Children’s Center.

        You’d think anyone on Jack & Jill’s board would be appalled that someone like Fogen would be allowed to get anywhere near kids — if indeed Fogen actually was a mentor through a community program. You’d think he’d send word down the pipeline to city desk to have someone, if not Stutzman, look into whether that mentoring schtick was even remotely true — and who was responsible for letting a guy with his kind of rap sheet near kids. But no … apparently not.

        Yes, I am very, very aware of that too. I did in fact look into matters too, believe me. It started with thinking loud or in words somewhere here in the comment section. Unitron, commented at the time, “cyno-ironically”, that I remember, not nearly as eloquently and informed as you, though.

        I am also, very, very aware of the state of the newspaper market.

        You’d think anyone on Jack & Jill’s board would be appalled that someone like Fogen would be allowed to get anywhere near kids — if indeed Fogen actually was a mentor through a community program

        Hmmm? That I didn’t know. OK, you think it was Jack & Jill and not Big Brother/Big Sister? If you come from the news business, how about finding out which it was? Or better still if it wasn’t only on Fogen’s mind due to the enormous amount of advertising they seem to make? I have seen neither coming forward independently to confirm his story. Yes, I am hard to convince, sometimes. 😉

        Look, Trained Observer, let me confess. In my earliest encounters with the Trayvon Martin tragedy, a former man of US military intelligence, whose blog I have read for close to a decade, since he was a critic of the WOT, wrote in a comment something to this effect:

        There will be more than enough money to defend GZ.

        There have been rumors circling around Jose Baez, you will remember. There was also a phone call by Fogen in which he told a male that O’Mara would contact this mysterious sponsor circle, if I remember correctly. If there is a low in the money box of Team Fogen, does that mean that these interested parties have disappeared, that they have lost interest? Or concerning the widespread contempt against it’s all the fault of the media, have they decided in line with O’Mara to shape public opinion to their advantage? My blog friend at the time noticed my immense reaction and the whole article including comment disappeared. If he had advised them or O’Mara–consider he even signed the White House petition for GZ–I am pretty sure he would have advised them to sponsor more underhandedly.

        As a PR adviser I had to know the media trade, believe me, it’s all about getting journalists to frame stories to your advantage. I may be completely wrong but considering that the Jury comes from the place the Orlando Sentinel covers, I would assume that one of O’Mara’s PR spokesman’s special focuses is local.

        Do you have an idea what the exact circulation of the Sentinel is these days?

      • Two sides to a story says:

        I don’t think either organization would volunatarily come forward if indeed either one had signed Fogen on as a mentor.

      • Trained Observer says:

        LeaNder — To be clear, I mentioned Greenberg has served as a board member for Jack & Jill in Broward, and said that anyone serving on such a board should be appalled that a guy like Fogen was involved (if indeed he was) with a mentoring program.

        So I don’t understand your question about how I “think it was Jack and Jill, not Big Brother/Big Sister.”

        Are you suggesting some people think Fogen was involved with Big Brothers/Big Sisters? I have no idea.

        Frankly, what I DO think is that there’s a good chance Fogen was lying about his alleged mentoring activity, period. My point was/is that if Greenberg is even remotely interested in enterprise reporting for his paper (which I doubt), he ought to have reporters look into exactly what Sanford area children’s program Fogen was associated with (if any) or at least what Sanford area children he was exposing to his twisted notions. That’s all the more important, given accusations from his cousin on child molestation.

    Hello everyone, this letter I have read dated June 1, 2012 Exhibit B, pages 7 & 8, the name of sender is blacked out, has me wondering. The unknown sender wrote they hired Daniel Santaniello and Paul Jones of the law firm of Luks, Santaniello,Petrillo and Jones to respresent RATL HOA and additional insureds with drafting the release.

    It further goes on to read, ‘They may contact you’. A copy of this letter was sent to Fogen c/o Mark O’mara

    http://www.gzdocs.com/documents/0413/mot_to_unseal.pdf

    I wonder did Santaniello and Jones called O’mara or vice versa? I also wonder just how much more was sent to O’mara regarding the settlement.

    Mr. Crump wrote in his Opposition confidential parties objection and intent to intervene and be heard in Court. That means any conversations O’mara may have had regarding the settlement will come out. This is very important showing that he is Mr. Crumps’ opposing counsel.

    What the heck Omar! When those attorneys have their say he’ll have some ‘splaning to do.

      From the TV tray of Lynn

      I looked at those papers again and maybe someone can clarify something for me.
      I see where Crump sent a letter to RATL in May to preserve evidence.
      Then in June, the letter you mention looks to me like it is the insurance company telling the insured, RATL (including board members, property mgrs and “volunteers”), that it’s giving up the money and are waiting to see if they (Crump/Martins) accept.
      There was mediation and then a confidential decision in October, right?

      I try and follow the flow and read between the lines.

      Two things stick out to me.
      One is the “volunteer” listed under the INSURED. At the end it lists GZ c/o MOM as the volunteer.
      Two is the release of liability the insurance is demanding.

      Could it be that Crump rejected this offer because it would mean they couldn’t sue Fogen separately?
      They seemed to sneak “Volunteers” in there like they are automatically covered. Doesn’t seem right to me. What do you guys think?

      • PiranhaMom says:

        @Lynn,

        That’s a very, very perceptive catch, Lynn.
        And perceptive of Crump, assuming he caught it, too.

        To be precise, Tracy and Sybrina would have filed a CLAIM against the HOA, which the HOA sent on to their insurance carrier. Tracy and Sybrina did not sue any volunteers, or UPS drivers, or landscapers, or postal workers, etc. Tracy and Sybrina would have made a claim against the HOA for the HOA’s NEGLIGENCE: among other things, in its lack of supervision of one of its “volunteers.” The HOA failed its DUTY to control the actions of the volunteer it APPOINTED, BLESSED, and PROMOTED – all the while doing NOTHING about complaints coming in that said this “volunteer” was harassing people, was dangerous, and focused on black youth above all else.

        Zimmerman was not threatened with suit in that claim; the HOA was.

        So Tracy and Sybrina would NOT ACCEPT a “settlement” from someone who was NOT a target of their claim: Zimmerman.

        Therefore, they would NOT grant him a “release.” The threat of that lawsuit against the HOA NEVER involved GZ. GZ is not a member of the HOA. He’s a non-paying renter of somebody else’s property.r.

        A squatter.

        Like those guys living under the bridge.

        @PiranhaMom

        Thank you. I see that in Crumps May letter to preserve evidence (which is actually a REAFFIRMATION of Natalie Jackson’s request from Mar 14th) that he requests “Name of the Insurer(s)” and “Name of each insured”. Do you think GZ is listed in that reply? Wasn’t there a date for Aug concerning this? I seem to remember someone mentioning an Aug settlement. Was it agreed upon in Aug and filed in Oct?

      • ic2fools says:

        @Lynn & PiranhaMom
        Reading your breakdowns of that letter now makes sense. Including Fogen ‘volunteer’ with insured parties also says HOA and the insurance company admit to their responsibility of Fogens’ actions.

        Good that Mr. Crump would not allow them to include Fogen in that settlement.

        No wonder Omar is hopping mad. Mr. Crump gave Omars’ legal briefs a major wedgie.

        I do believe Omar argued with Santiello and Jones insurance lawyers for RATL and its’ insureds and possibly Mr. Crump not to exclude Fogen. More proof that Mr. Crump is opposing counsel.

        The letter also stated that information is confidential. At his first opportunity Omar gave that interview regarding the settlement. Seems the lawyers let that slide, but now Omar is stirring the pot to have it unsealed. Mr. Crump has backup from the concerned confidential parties who object to unseal. That means we should see Motions from them also objecting and request to be heard in court regarding the issue.

        @ic2fools

        Mr. Crump gave Omars’ legal briefs a major wedgie.

        ROTFLMAO

        I keep reading and it keeps getting clearer.
        I’ll give you my take on it.
        Crump denied having GZ on the settlement. This is why we see MOM whining at point 8 in his motion.
        He says he received the Notice of Filing, BUT not the unredacted or redacted settlement.
        If he was a party to this he would have his own copy. So I assume GZ was left off the final suit/settlement.

        I reread the title “Motion to unseal informantion listed as cofidential information within a court filing or IN THE ALTERNATIVE DEMAND FOR SPECIFIC DISCOVERY”

        That’s MOM’s real beef in this matter! He’s clueless. He wants to know about the suit cause he knows he’s next! He yakked on about financial gain and bias…yada, yada, because he wants a copy of what he can’t see. It’s driving him nuts 🙂 In the alternative…LOL Well, Judge, if you won’t unseal it can I just get my own copy? PLEEEAASSEE!!!

      • Lynn says:

        From the TV tray of Lynn

        I reread Crumps response to this again. In point 2 he mentions that the releasing and released parties agreed to kept it confidential as part of the settlement, therefore if Fogen was a party to this he would be breaking his own agreement. MOM wanting what he can’t have. Too Bad. So Sad.

      • ic2fools says:

        Lynn when Fogen ‘volunteer’ was removed from as an insured, then Omar did not and would not be privy to anything about the settlement.

        Yepper Omar is going bonkers, Mr. Crump and the other attorneys for confidential parties are going to block Omar at every turn. His motion is going to be denied. To me the settlement does not have any bearing regarding Fogen Murder2 trial date. He is wasting time and those donations on a matter that will even be brought into the trial.

        So far defense has only spent 35k towards defense, 56k on security still owes 28k that’s 84k on security and 60k on Fogen living expense. Backwards don’t cha know, bare bones on actual defense itself.

        • Xena says:

          I could be wrong, but O’Mara can see anything that’s filed in the case. Sealing it keeps it from the public. IOWs, O’Mara wants it unsealed so that he can give it to the media.

          O’Mara is probably suffering from a severe case of rejection. The State won’t connect the dots for him. He has discovery material that he does not understand, a client who can’t keep his story straight, and probably a revolving door for interns. He would no doubt be willing to pick any fight he can just to release his frustration.

      • ic2fools says:

        Xena, Omar is the only one who wants settlement in public, he is foaming at the mouth to release any and all info regarding it. To further bully, intimidate those who are involed.

        Omar reasonable thinking and decision making one helluva slippery slope.

        I do have a question, can Omar represent Fogen in a civil suit? Its’ not even his field of law.

      • Xena says:

        @ic2fools

        I do have a question, can Omar represent Fogen in a civil suit? Its’ not even his field of law.

        Since O’Mara hired, retained or whatever, attorneys to file GZ’s suit against NBC, chances are that he is not comfortable in civil cases other than family. O’Mara concentration is mainly divorce.

        • I believe O’Mara is functioning as local counsel (i.e., admitted to the Florida bar) for the Philadelphia lawyer who filed the complaint. MOM’s primary responsibilities will be to advise the other guy regarding Florida laws and procedures and to review and cosign pleadings.

          The Philadelphia lawyer will have to file a motion to be admitted pro hac vice, if he has not already done so.

          There’s no hurry, since the parties have agreed to stay the lawsuit until after the criminal case is resolved.

          There’s a good chance that a jury will convict the defendant and the civil suit will be dismissed.

            They did. I haven’t kept up with checking the docket for that case but presume the applications were approved because of the stimulation to stay the lawsuit until after the criminal case.

      This may be a dumb question but, can this affect the recent HOA settlement? Could the HOA go back to the court and say they were lead to believe Trayvon was an innocent child when in fact he did have a police record and could of very well been doing what George suspected him of doing (casing houses) and called the NEN about? It really ticks me off they got all that money for their thug kid who most likely was casing homes.

      Subject: A Cover-up of “phone information” – by the police? Why?
      Myopia> Here was my major issue: When the police found an un-identified cell phone in the vicinity of TM and George. There was no reason to NOT go after this information:
      Walther> Even with a dead battery, removing the cover from that phone shows the IMEI unique identification number and that is all that was needed to get the phone records and ping logs for a phone found at the scene of a John Doe homicide. The story that this was not done is simply not credible.
      Myopia> This is the profound failure of 1) The SPD. There is no excuse to avoid getting this information. This, with DeeDee’s “lying habit” convinces me that, no conversation occurred. That presumed “conversation” was a “coached invention”, to make Crumps case against the HOA successful. I don’t know who in the SPD refused to do their job – but the Crump/DeeDee “game” would not have been possible, except for the “blocking” of this objective truth. If there is any REAL RESARCH, we have to ask, WHY was that phone and associated Ping-logs, NEVER researched in an intelligent manner. For me this “ends” this case. There is NO CREDIBLE witness against George Zimmerman. The fact is that the “rabid” Trayvon thug attacked George, playing the “knock-out” game, and George defended himself, as an act of self-defense.

      If all these reader or people have proof of wh TM is and he is a bad person that will free
      GZ to so and end this mess

In any case, according the deposition of detective Hurley, the story about Trayvon in possession of stolen goods seems to be a made up story! Pg. 68-69

      Officer Dunn that a Metro Dade officer needed to talk to me about retrieving property on [redacted]. He gave me the case number. I looked it up. Nowhere in that report said anything about [redacted]. It was titled “Found Property”.
      Now, keep in mind, this is after it hits national news and everybody’s, you know, doing whatever they’re doing to either make the kid look bad or make him look good. Once again, that was irrelevant to me. But when I noticed that this report said “found property” and I asked, how did this –how do you tie this to [redacted] because his name is not on there.

        It’s really a shame that we are still going through this bull shit being that it’s 2013, one would think we were still living in the 50’s and 60’s because, this is how those who think they own this country want things to be. no only that, they also think that GOD made them the boss of his world.

        The thing they refuse to acknowledge is the *FACT* that this is stolen land, that they claim as their own.

        @Lynn
        I am so tired of these faux apologies by racists. I am also beginnning to believe that racism is a mental health illness and must be acknowledged as such so it can be treated. Fired cop Ron King, as you and others point out, is only sorry that the thin blue wall of silence did not protect him against his own ignorance and racism. It’s funny, though, that when he saw his paycheck fluttering away in the wind he threw as many people under the bus as he could. Who does he think he is to be a part of some “political agenda”? And if I were the parents of Trayvon Martin I would sue HIM for daring to try to join them in his false alliance of victimhood.

      FROM THE CLUTTERED DESK OF Cielo62~  Respectfully LLMPapa, that is a cartload of horseshit. If he “offered” the targets to fellow officers, then he probably intended to use them for live fire targets. This cop crap is what enrages me. He gets fired FOR CAUSE. He whines to his union about it being “misintepreted”. The unions start turning the screws on the department, and voila! Racist cop gets his job back. He’s out a few weeks pay BUT he’s still employed. It happens so frequently it’s sickening. Our local paper did an expose on the Houston cops. Some had serious complaints, SUBSTANTIATED complaints, MANY of them on their records, but they are STILL employed!! The public here doesn’t trust the police department. And they have good cause.

    • He certainly would NOT have used any silhouette of one of the school shooting victims or the Colorado victims as non shoot targets. HIS judgment was poor in this instance. The fact that he PURCHASED them in the first place speaks to his heart. My goodness!

        @Diaryofasuccessfulloser, in reference to your comment about him using a photo of one of the kids from the Newtown and the Aurora incident. in the first place, there would have NEVER been anything like this put out in reference to those victims. they were all white victims with the exception of one little AA girl in the Newtown case.

        These target things were made for one reason and one reason only and that was to disrespect this AA kid and his family. as far as those who purchased these things as well as the one who made and sold them, AA don’t have any feelings as far as they are concerned.

        This is one of the most hateful racist things that one could ever imagine, that one race of people could ever do to another race. there’s a very SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL, FOR PEOPLE LIKE THESE.

        agreed, lonnie. there are legitimate ‘non-shoot’ targets available for this type of training, they usually consist of outlines of kids, pregnant woment, women pushing baby carriages, etc. none of these types of targets have any type of characteristics which would tie them to actual individuals.

        bottom line is that mr ray-cyst purchased the trayvon targets manufactured by fellow cone headed scum bags. mr formerly ‘upstanding’ police officer gave cash to racist scum instead of legitimate outfits which produce legitimate ‘no-shoot’ targets. this alone brings his actions into question and no amount of back pedaling on his part makes his story believable.

If it had been we would nevr have known about it. Again you contradict yourself. There is no hidden criminal record for Trayvon,he had no criminal record. He has never been arrested or charged with anything. Trayvon is not so important (except to the people who loved and cared deeply about him) that the police would hide his record if he had one. Again you people and the conservative nuthouse,will stoop to any new low to justify the murder of a 17 year old boy who never did any harm to anyone. You make assumptions,imply,and make crap up to justify the death of a 17 year old kid. You are the lowest form of human scum on this planet. So this is what being a conservative is. Lie to justify murder. Make excuses to justify murder. If ignorance was a disease you’d be dead. If ignorance was a crime you’d get the death penalty. If ignorance was a job you’d get promoted.

        Unitron, I suggest you look at the FOIA pages obtained from Miami Police Department that are currently posted at the Treestump Part 6. The deposition of an Officer Hadley mentions exactly that. Closer to the source than anything the media put out. I think the page numbers are 51-83 over there. Basically, Hadley says Trayvon’s a good kid or he’d have a longer record.

        Part 6 http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/04/14/part-6-the-trayvon-martin-cover-up-detective-steven-hadley-sr-sworn-affidavit-trayvon-foia-13/

        • onlyiamunitron says:

          “Unitron, I suggest you look at the FOIA pages obtained from Miami Police Department…”

          It seems they’re actually from a separate agency, the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department, and not the plain old Miami Police, who are apparently called Metro Dade.

          I had already read all 91 pages previously, as well as the previous 5 “episodes”, but it’s easy to miss stuff among all of that verbiage, so I went to the start of Hadley’s testimony right where you said it was and read it again all the way to the end.

          According to Hadley, the school cops had the jewelry sitting in their property room logged in as “found property” and when Metro Dade wanted it sent to them, Lt. Rodak of the school cops interrupted that, so the jewelry got sent back from Hadley’s desk to the property room.

          And so far there’s no indication I’ve been able to find yet that it’s not still sitting there.

          Which is why I was hoping to see whatever it was that kllypyn saw, to see if there was another chapter in the jewelry’s history.

            @Uni,

            Just maybe, Uni, the “jewelry” is a pin.

            Not a brooch as such, but one with a likeness.

            That Trayvon liked to wear.

            In loving memory ….

          • onlyiamunitron says:

            “Just maybe… the “jewelry” is a pin.”

            I have no idea what it is or they are.

            I assume something exists because the school cop, Hadley, talks about Metro-Dade wanting the transfer of some “found property” supposedly connected to Trayvon in some way.

            But as far as I know nobody but the newspaper in Miami said anything about it being jewelry found in his pack or bookbag, and I have no idea who or what their source was.

            If it doesn’t help me along the road of figuring out what happened that night, I don’t really care what it is or they are, or how it or they wound up in Trayvon’s possession, if it or they actually did.

            But kllypyn said it or they had been returned to the owner of it or them, something I hadn’t seen stated anywhere else, and I was curious to read that for myself.

            Unfortunately kllypyn no longer has the link, so unless someone else can provide that link, I’m going to put that question back in the “things we don’t know” file and worry about other stuff.

            I should point out here that I actually erred slightly in using the word jewelry in my reply to Two sides to a story, as Hadley actually only ever says “property” or “found property” when he tells the tale about how it or they never actually went anywhere at the time he was talking about.

            Since then, who knows. Apparently someone thinks they do and kllypyn read about it, but one computer crash later, it’s a dead end, so, unless that changes, for me it’s a closed subject.

            ” I’m going to put that question back in the “things we don’t know” file and worry about other stuff.”

            Brilliant move, ol’ pal.

            I know you want justice for Zimmerman (and I do, too – who wants an unjust trial?) so let me suggest “other stuff” that’s more worrisome;

            IF Zimmerman agrees to testify, how do you think he should explain what he must consider the final pre-shoot maneuver: drawing the gun from the holster sandwiched between ass & grass, bringing it forward, and somehow shooting a horizontal bullet track straight through Travvon’s torso, until the projectile shatters, as designed, taking out a chamber of the heart and lobe of lung:

            (a) should he stand and show the jury how he did this?

            (b) should he get down on the floor in Chambers in front of the jury, and re-create it?

            (c) how should he explain that he would really not have been able to imprison Trayvon’s arm (that he thought Trayvon was snaking across Zimmerman’s chest, with an eye to going for the gun – the action that reminded Zimmerman that he was wearing “the” [up to now, forgotten] gun?

            We have seen him re-create this, and to reach around back to his holster, he has to bend his elbow in an “akimbo” position – so his bicep rises off his chest – thus releasing Trayvon’s trapped arm. Should he tell us what Trayvon did THEN? Further beatings?

            (You can recreate this action yourself sitting at your keyboard.)

            (d) Should he demonstrate that move from the witness stand, or get down on the floor?

            Please think about this testimony, Uni. I am sorely troubled. What’s the best way to make the Jury comprehend?

            I need help with this.

            Thanks, Uni, for coming back to significant” stuff.”

            It’s where we all belong.

    I wish that someone would post the complete Dr. Phil with Trayvon’s family, it was on the web at one time because that’s the only way I could have seen it. Osterman’s show is online in fair use content.

    That would be a window into the family that is much needed now, Sybrina didn’t know how she was going to be able to cope without breaking down, and kudos to showman Philip, he offered his resources and full support to Sybrina and the family as they go through this very public grieving time.

    It’s become so much more than just public, these new stories are bringing a whole new challenge to any parent whose child is the victim of violent crime, and the child is re-victimized, their memory victimized, and their reputation re-written with hate.

        kllyprn, thought that might be the case, I didn’t use the poster’s name, and it’s too important to replay this because even though the Dr. Phil show seems all about showmanship, he does good work in this case and the family thrown into the public through no fault of their own, nor of their son.

        Contrast this, done with a live audience, live recording, no blue or green chroma key screens, no slick editing after recording in a closed studio of the killer to spew more lies and manipulate his so-called, ‘masses’.

        This family shows no hate in their grief that wants vigilante justice for Trayvon in return, none of that. These are good people who are loving parents.

        Messages for Sybrina and Tracy about the haters, can apply to us too, we can decide to ‘take back’ as well and not give them voice.

        What can we do to ‘take back’? LLMPapa just gave us one more example, and his timing tonight, just when we needed it most.

    • ladystclaire says:

      What these people are putting this family through is not right and, this also goes for the family of the “MURDERER” as well as his defense team. Fogen the B*****D needs to come clean about the crime he committed that night.

      I know that is never going to happen because, he is the type of person who would rather lie than tell the truth. but, there are some people who should do what he will never do because, they know exactly what happened that night but, are not being forthcoming with what they know. even though he has cost them on the HOA to have to pay out a big settlement to the family of his victim’s family, those on that HOA board are willing to keep mum. it would serve some of them right, if they lose their homes to the family of Trayvon.

      • PiranhaMom says:

        @Lady,

        I think we will find out that the “HOA settlement” is paid by two insurance companies, and their adjusters/attorneys called the shots.

        The HOA would have little to say about it when the insurance companies (the HOA’s and likely the management company’s) informed them, “You really have little choice about settling. The limits payable on these policies are “X” dollars. Let us show you similar cases that went to a jury. The award payouts were “X+”, “Y+” and Z+” All of the excess BEYOND THE POLICY LIMITS — will come out of your HOA reserve, will come out of your personal bank accounts, and your homes could be sold to pay the balance of the award if you can’t pay cash. This what you and every homeowner will PERSONALLY lose.”

        The HOA Board of Directors would gulp and say, “OK, Boss!”

      • ay2z says:

        PiranahMom,

        Who are all the players, not saying they all have legal standing or responsibility, but just on the face of what we know from discovery.

        Could there be ownership by a company/developer of this complex who are stakeholders apart from HOA?

        Could Neighborhood Watch, be responsible for any failure and if responsible to any degree, would they then have a case against those on site, individual board members or the HOA and it’s iinsurers in the future?

        There is also the SPD official link to the NW program for training and responder purposes, would this make them liable for any failures (ie: failure of the NW captain to assign block captains, failure to assure the residents knew the rules about gun-toting etc etc).

        NW should be concerned about it’s reputation and ability to monitor gun-toting vigilantes who operate in a similar fashion to fogen, and his ‘little hero’ complex.

        • PiranhaMom says:

          @Ay2z’

          I know everyone here would like to see the idiots in this case feel some pain. But it is limited. NW is part of law enforcement and law enforcement is part of government and to sue government you must first put in a claim then have it denied. (Goes way back to early kings of England, “who can do no wrong.” You have to get the king’s permission to sue him.)

          Haven’t heard of any claim against SPD.

          NW, as far as we can see, put out the right instructions.

          Benjamin Crump had Tracy and Sybrina file a claim where there was most likely negligence, a claim to be most likely successful with jurors if the claim was denied.

          That’s what they did and the results of same were announced. The HOA (the insurance company on their behalf) offered to settle out of court because it was a prudent business decision, compared to being financially massacred by the jurors.

          What is significant about this: The HOA Directors are those who knew Zimmerman best. Some were right there when it happened.

          Not hard to show those folks what the risks of NOT settling out of court would be!

          Bazillions!

      • Trained Observer says:

        Ay2Z — Once a complex is built out and sold out, the developer turns over reins to the HOA and sez bye-bye. Unless the developer retained ownership of a few units for some unspecified purpose, any exposure is highly unlikely. That said, it might be that a “corporate entity” — i.e. some mom and pop company — might have bought up a few units during the down-turn for rental or resale spec purposes .(Many Florida complexes took pains with tightened by-laws around 2008 to prevent that from happening, specifying that prospective buyers could own, for example, no more than two units in a complex.

        Counsel for the other confidential parties to the confidential civil settlement agreement have indicated their objection and intention to intervene and be heard before the Court on this matter.

        I reread Omars Motion to Unseal Exhibit B, pgs 7 & 8 is a letter dated June 1, 2012 that was sent to RATL HOA, and its board members and ‘VOLUNTEERS’ cc: Fogen c/o Mark Omara
        That explains why JN said to Omar Mr. Crump is opposing counsel and why Omar knew of the settlement.

        FROM THE CLUTTERED DESK OF Cielo62~ TO: Cercando Luce: They had been on sale online, BUT he was sent a cease and desist letter with threats to sue if ignored, so they are no longer available. OF COURSE it was some redneck moron with a gun store who developed it and sold it. The most shameful thing is that they sold quite well.

        That is what I have trouble with. It is bad enough someone wants to try to make a buck that way, but just because you CAN find something, just because you CAN buy something, doesn’t mean you have to. There is only one kind of person who would buy something like that, let alone try to make money that way.

      From the desk of racerrodig

      These despicable targets were sold by a private gun shop on e-bay last year. He was ordered to cease & desist selling these. I think Crump had something to do with the halting of the sales of this shit. There were Copyright laws and such infringed on.

      Only an insensitive racist shit bag would do this by the way.

      • PiranhaMom says:

        @Racer,

        The commercial “rights” to Trayvon’s image are part of his estate; similar to copyright. but a different part of “the bundle of rights.”

    Ben’s response:

    “It is absolutely reprehensible that a high-ranking member of the Port Canaveral Police, sworn to protect and serve Floridians, would use the image of a dead child as target practice,” Crump said in a statement. “Such a deliberate and depraved indifference to this grieving family is unacceptable.

    • ladystclaire says:

      From the desk of Lady, CNN has some nerve quoting Ben Crump’s response concerning this matter, when they themselves allow all kinds of racist hate speech to post on their blog site. “NEVER” again will I tune in to CNN for my place to watch the news.

      All of these places that allow this kind of shit to be posted on their sites, just tell me that, the ones who own these sites are permitting this kind of stuff because, this is how they themselves feel but, are too much of a coward to come right out and say or blog this hate speech themselves. after all, they want ratings. one thing for sure though, they won’t get those ratings from me tuning in to their racist network.

      • ay2z says:

        It’s because of advertising, but rest assured, the FBI has agents that download and read those comments. They spend hours determining what constitutes free speech as opposed to what constitutes hate speech.

        That doesn’t mean that anyone should actually waste their time arguing with Zidiots who want to turn focus away from GZ and argue about race. As a wise man once told me, never get into a pissing match with a skunk.

      • ladystclaire says:

        I believe in freedom of speech just as much as anybody but, what these people are putting out on some of these blog sites is, nothing but hate speech directed to all AA in general as well as to a grieving family. I read some of this stuff and, my eyes fill with tears for Trayvon and his family because, they haven’t hurt a soul. if these ignorant racist want to support this murderer of a child, then by all means do it. but, they they do not have to continue with the insults to this child, his family and AA in general.

        These “IMBECILES” do *NOT* own this country as they think they do. this country as we all know, was taken from the rightful owners and, these “MORONS” know very well it was. yet they think it rightfully belongs to them but, no it doesn’t. they have even gone so far as to say, AA should be deported. well, seeing that they were not the original owners, they should be deported to where ever it is that they originated.

        Obama said it best when he said, “unless you are a Native American,” you were brought here from some where else. these very people who are showing us and the rest of the world just how ignorant they are, I hope they will one day go through what Trayvon and his family are going through.

      You have a choice:

      You can either take your time to retype your post, or you can burden several hundred others for THEIR TIME as they struggle to read your post an all-caps.

      Readers also have a choice:

      They can decide if they want to struggle through a long all-caps post or skip it.

      You decide on your choice,
      and the rest of us will give it our best consideration.

      Thanks for thinking this over.

      • parrot says:

        This tip may be too late, Kllypyn, but if you use Word, you can save some time by highlighting the entire post, then press shift + F3 twice. That will keep capitalization at the beginning of the sentence and change everything everything else to lower case letters.

        You will, however, have to capitalize the personal pronoun “i”, as well as any proper nouns where ever they show up in the body because it does not capitalize anything but the first letter of each sentence.

    • Malisha says:

      If your computer has a word processing thing, that program can probably take it as a text paragraph (or ten) and make it lower cae and then you can just go through and capitalize first letters of sentences, or just skip it and publish it like e.e.cummings.

    Oh no faux. I wasn’t saying it wasn’t Gaudi.

    “From the dressing table of fauxmccoy”

    because just as suspected it’s a “tocador” not a “despacho” (Lol).

    For your interest a quick Google brought up that it is part of furnishings for “Palau Güell” (in Spanish gü is pronounced as a “w”, i.e. Well Palace) One source adjudicates it to Joan Munné’s workshop another to F. Vidal’s along with this description which you might like:

    These extraordinarily original furnishings were built by F. Vidal in 1888. The completely asymmetric dressing table stood out for its incredibly modern design for the time and had a mirror that could pass for avant-garde even today. It was designed for complete comfort and allowed the user to have all her beauty implements at hand. In addition, it featured a small step designed to aid in the putting on of shoes.

            @Faux,

            “Guernica” itself is overwhelming, even more so for being in black, grey and white, with rough slabs of paint, rough and textured. It’s twice as tall as a person and about 25 ft. long so the figures are overpowering. I saw it as a young adult (I don’t know what it would do to a child.) At some point I retreated to the far end of the gallery room, sat in the corner, knees to chest, with my cheek pressed to my knees and eyes closed. I could take only so much. But I knew it was important to take in, absorb, consume as much of that truth as I could, and after a brief respite got up to examine it more – walking close, then backwards to take it all in.

            It was more moving to me than my mother’s reports of being bombed in London, with glass shards from the windows shooting across the room, and methodically picking them out of her skin and hair, and out of her cat; keeping busy to quell the fear.

    Why does MOM think he has the right, to have the conditions of the HOA settlement with the family of Trayvon unsealed and, what is the reason for him wanting it unsealed? this man is the most despicable person, that I have ever seen.

    He hasn’t let up on the harassment of this family at all. that settlement is none of the public’s business, and it’s certainly none of his business to see what it contains. he sure is being faithful to the tree cesspool as far as acting on everything they tell him to do. they are more than likely the ones who *DEMANDED* that he file this motion to unseal the agreement.

    While having things unsealed that is connected to this case, then lets unseal everything concerning the defendant, such as his text messages as well as his emails and, his phone calls from that night and beyond. they don’t want his racist rants and his bragging about killing an UNARMED kid as well as making some kind of more than likely, racist remark about Tracy Martin.

    this entire family are all hell bound and so is the defense team!

    • Nef05 says:

      I think he’s desperate for something (anything) he can show as a “win”. Motion after motion -DENIED. Immunity Hearing – WAIVED. Defense fund is $10K in the hole, 2 months until trial, and his most rabid supporters are turning on him.

      Since the clerk has already indicated she will unseal it, unless she gets a court order to the contrary, O’Mara has nothing to lose if he piggybacks on her decision, on something she has already declared she will unseal. She unseals it – he declares a “win” (as if it was all due to HIS motion) and the rabid supporters act like he’s busted the case wide open.

      • ladystclaire says:

        This BS that is going on concerning the murder of this child is not even necessary. for who ever it was/is who dog whistled all of these racist B*****D’S out to do the things they are doing, should burn in hell right along side of the ones he/she commands.

        I’m so glad that the rest of the world is seeing this country for what it really is, and how some people are treated with such disrespect, even in death. Trayvon was a child and, he did not in any way cause what happened to him at the hands of a fellow racist POS.

        I pray to GOD ALMIGHTY that, this murdering scum bag is convicted for the crime which he committed and, has been lying about from day one. I saw a picture of an inmate, holding up a sign standing in front of a cell that read, RESERVED FOR GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. that prison cell is exactly where he belongs and, it is where he will live for a long, long time I hope. but, if the state doesn’t get him, the feds will. he committed a hate crime and, with that he stands a chance of being executed.

        As bad as it was to read that link, I just went out to get something to eat and was listening to the radio in my car. The news talked about this story and it hit me so much harder than I expected, especially after having just read this.

        I realized if I could hear it on the radio in my car, so could Trayvon’s parents!!!!!!

        OMG!!!! Can you even BEGIN to imagine? OMG

        I can’t stop crying and my stomach hurts.

        IF I HAVE TO LISTEN TO THAT EVIL WITCH WHINE ABOUT HER POOR SON – OR HIS BROTHER OR MOM, I don’t know, I don’t know what I’ll do but I am so SICK of their pitty party and their victimization and thugification of Trayvon and his family and all black people -ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO STOP IT INSTEAD OF FUEL THE FIRE!!!!

        That kind of thing is THEIR fault. Oh, I’m sure that stinkin refuse at the outhouse love it. They probably think it is funny. Do you think MOM or Jr. or Sr. or even GZ himself will have the DECENCY TO TELL THEM TO KNOCK IT OFF AND STOP IT THEMSELVES?

        I am SOOOO sick of hearing about poor little GZ and his poor sad mama. She still has her son. Oh boofricketyhoo, he’s gained weight. What a fuckin shame.

        Trayvon was so skinny and now he’ll never have a chance to fill out.

        Okay, so that’s bad enough, but to TORMENT HIM IN THE GRAVE AND HIS FAMILY LIKE THIS??!!!

        Don’t those – I don’t know WHAT you can call them, because they are NOT people – have ANY heart? ANY soul???

        WTF IS WRONG WITH THEM???!!!!

        omg, I just want to hug Sybrina. OMG I don’t know what I’d do if I were her – or his dad or anyone close to him and heard that on the radio. I feel so sick.

        My daughter-in-law is out of town with my grandkids, but my son is home by himself for the weekend because he is working today. I think if I leave now, I can get there by the time he gets off work so I can give him a hug. I have to stay with him tonight because I just can’t be by myself. And I need to see my son. Trayvon could have been my son, and at times, probably was.

        I swear, I am so sick of their poor me. So what if GZ goes to prison? So what if he is in there for life? I mean yes, as a parent it certainly is not what you want for your child, but she can still see him. She can still hold him.

        While Trayvon’s mom gets to listen to this kind of CRAP and her GARBAGE.

        I mean they all probably stay away from places like the outhouse and probably try not to read news articles where they can see all the racist hatred, BUT IT WAS ON THE NEWS and it hit me in the gut!!!!

            While O’Mara and Junior are attempting to taint the jury pool, they should keep something very important in mind. Evidently, GZ’s supporters in Seminole County are so poor that they don’t drive and so stupid, that they haven’t registered to vote.

            Of those not residing in Seminole County, FL, they care so much about GZ that they prefer that he not have money for a legal defense.

            So O’Mara, Mama Zim, and Junior, should stop crying about GZ getting a fair trial. It will be as fair as GZ’s legal defense can buy. 🙂

        @Rachael, it’s even more of a shame that these news media such as TV and radio, are more than happy to give them a platform to spew their shit out to the public at large, in order to see if they can drum up more racist support for the murdering B*****D.

          In his video, King conveyed that he is not going to be re-hired. He made a subtle threat that since he (King) has gone down, he plans on taking the Chief with him.

          Don’t be surprised if King doesn’t put up a begging site on the basis that he has been wronged by the system.

    Not from the Desk of Junior editor and chief rewrite and family spokesperson:

    Gladys Zimmerman and her junior editor, brought up last year’s delayed arrest (not conviction) for her son’s killing of a child by all legal standards, to quote Serino, “… still a child”.

    Revisiting last year just prior to the arrest. No one was asking for a conviction, they were asking for the justice system to work, and that begins with ‘arrest’.

        Notice the date, published March 15, 2012, and notice the two photos of Trayvon that appear, one on top left, a very young Trayvon in his graduation cap and gown, and on the top right, the photo that O’mara made a huge media production about, as a photo more representative of Trayvon, compared to all the young boy photos the media put out. PHoto taken in the car not long before Trayvon was shot to death.

        No reasonable person is going to confuse the photo on the left as a 16 year old turning 17 , and this media put both up at the same time.

          I couldn’t watch it straight through, I had to stop and come back to it later, it’s just that painful to watch. Especially to remember Jasper Tx and then how Fogen stood there discussing his ammo with Liar John, who said he saw things that never happened, but somehow were exactly the same as the fictitious claims that Fogen was later to make.

          How do two people describe exactly the same fiction that neither of them could have witnessed? Coincidence??? Yeah, right!

      • Sybrina breaks down around the 3:29 mark when speaking how her brother Ronald Fulton inspired Trayvon to become interested in aviation. So heartbreaking…

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          I’m pretty tough, been through quite a bit… and still this is too painful to watch straight through. What makes it hurt so bad is, we have nut cases saying he deserved to be shot for nothing and a fool racist police man taking his picture out to the shooting range. How calloused can one get? Yeah, I know, I not only saw the film of Selma, but I lived with the horror as well. 2 million black people in jail because their parents weren’t allowed to even get close to having “white picket fences”, if you get my drift.

          But boy did the HOA do the right thing because, if PhogenPhoole takes the stand, the HOA would be lucky not to be burned at the stake when he’s finished. They certainly would not want to have to even try to answer, why they threw a complainer out of a meeting, because that would enrage any jury. If GZ takes the stand he’s going to enrage the jury, not just convince them that he’s guilty beyond the shadow of reasonable doubt, but so enrage them to the point where they will be absolutely convinced of his certain guilt.

          MOM and West know that their only concern will be, getting out of GZ’s reach swiftly when the verdict is read. Hope they check him for weapons on his way in.

        When she and her sister spoke of their brother’s accident, I asked “How much can this one family bear?”

        I deeply hope that their own lives are not shortened by the horror of Trayvon’s murder, and the public persecution by the killer, his family, and his representatives. That part is so despicable, the lowest of the low.

    My GOD!!! Those EFFN IDIOTS!!!

    I don’t like to name names, but I should because this one’s name totally reflects his lack of whatever but look what he writes (I wish I knew how to do the fancy stuff):

    “TM’s suppressed criminal history reminds me so much of the thug who murderred my brother. His arrest record ran to two dozen, closely spaced pages of computer printout. Among his many crimes was a vicious assault on a pregnant ex-girlfriend who he attempted to administer an abortion to (infanticide) by repeatedly kicking her In the stomach with steel toed shoes. He was free on his own recognizance when he murderred my brother. The authorities understood that they were morally if not legally negligent in my brother’s death. The same is true in almost all homicides where an escalating series of criminal events that are not addressed by the police and the courts culminate in murder. The TM case is remarkable only because the dereliction of duty by the school police culminated in the criminal being justifiably killed. The suppression of evidence in the campaign to falsely prosecute GZ was motivated by the fear that the school district might (and should) be sued by GZ.”

    “The same is true in almost all homicides where an escalating series of criminal events that are not addressed by the police and the courts culminate in murder.”

    Serino: Okay. Could you tell who was yelling help? Was it the person on the ground or anybody else?
    Witness 14: The person on the ground was yelling help.
    Serino: Okay. Was there anybody else besides the person on the ground there?
    Witness 14: Not that I saw.

    Witness 14: Right when I saw him I thought it, like, since it was wet outside, I thought he had fallen, like broken his leg or something.

    • You all have thoughtful comments says:

      The key part of Witness 14’s observation is that the person he saw had on a red shirt.
      And, that Witness 14 saw only one person who was on the ground–nobody else.
      Well, if, in fact Trayvon and George were such a position together that one was on top and one was on the bottom, then which would be the easier one to see?
      The answer is that it would be the person on top who was probably obscuring the bottom person from Witness 14’s sight. Because Witness 14 only saw one person…..the person in the red jacket……we know that George was on top.

      • You all have thoughtful comments says:

        MrPerryvine:

        OMG! YAHTC! You are saying the prosecution has an actual, credible, unimpeachable star eyewitness to George being on top! An eyewitness that debunks both the already discredited George and already discredited Lying John’s third false claim that Trayvon was on top. OMG! George is done! This kid is the missing STAR EYEWITNESS -and he’s been staring us in the face the whole time without us realizing fully the extreme weight his testimony carries. OMG -George is caught! Plus Omara and George already know this; no wonder the community association have agreed to pay over a million without even being sued! All the insiders know already!
        One last thing YAHTC, that has occurred to me concerning what could contribute to the kid not seeing Trayvon on the bottom. There’s an additional reason explaining why the kid could not have seen Trayvon on the bottom; a reason, a perfectly good explanation besides just George covering him, the darkness and the distance; a reason that validates the kid’s not seeing Trayvon and putting the nail in the coffin. Know what it is, staring us in our faces? In addition to all that -drawing on my experience as a concrete worker and landscaper -we shall have to blame it also on the uneven landscaping! Because the highest elevation (the dogwalk) was between the kid who stood in grass lower than the dogwalk on his side, looking across the elevated dogwalk at the figures on the other of it who just like him, were in the grass over there which is also lower than the dogwalk too.

      • gbrbsb says:

        @yahtc
        I jotted this down as one of GZ’s biggest gaffes ages ago (forgotten name of interviewer… neither Singleton nor Serino). It seemed to fit here.

        U/c emphasis mine and the long text after is only to show that despite he managed to immediately correct his slip, GZ never explains what exactly DID he mean when he said “squirmed my way out”, because IMO nothing of what he describes fits with squirming “out” of anything while it does fit perfectly with squirming out “from under him”. His head only being a quarter on the concrete has some interest too.

        “…I kind of shifted and squirmed MY WAY OUT… Not out from under him but like to where… ‘cos h… the concrete was only… it was a side walk and…it felt like he only had my head on a (inaudible)… a quarter of the concrete and I could shift my way out and get on to the grass so where he was slamming my head it would just hit the grass and not the concrete but when I shifted my jacket came up and my shirt came up and exposed my firearm…”

        • PiranhaMom says:

          @GBRBSB

          Good catch, GB! When John W6 had his SECOND (corrective) interview he described the guy under (not in the dark hoodie) as rising, straining to reverse the position. When he looked out “they” were over by the dogwalk, then on the grass at the end. In the dark out there he cold not ascertain who was who.

          It is not difficult for a trained MMA/brawler to overpower and overthrow someone pinning him down (someone with little strength left, like Trayvon, trying to pin GZ down. Soon, Trayvon lost the hold.)

          • cielo62 says:

            PiranhaMom~ I think this other version is ALSO a lie. GZ didn’t have so much as a smudge on him. NO WAY he ‘wrestled’ with Trayvon that night. GZs clothes were too clean and tucked in to have been in a fight or a tussle.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @Cielo,

            Need to “see” your theory – do you think GZ shot TM while both standing?

            Or GZ was standing and TM on the ground and GZ leaned over and shot him? Then got down on the ground over him AFTERwards, as witnesses saw at the end?

            The reason I believe this tussling on the ground took place without mussing up GZ is that (1) his jacket is almost indestructible, poly or poly/cotton – designed to be shower-resistant, packable, etc. (2) very wet grass, for slip-sliding along, and (3) It’s St. Augustine grass, very tough and unlikely to bruise – it’s the dormant season in Florida before spring growth, without lots of juice in the blades of grass – and it’s short and “thatchy” because it’s regularly mowed – so the grass doesn’t tear up. Kinda like Astroturf.

            The bits of grass on GD’s boot-toe looked to me like clippings from the grass having been mowed.

            Let me know how you think it progressed from the first verbal encounter to the shot. I think GZ grabbed TM’s shirt at first encounter and TM threw up his elbows in surprise, knocking GZ down and taking TM with him.

            OR, Trayvon is pulled forward, off-balance, when his shirts are grabbed, knocking GZ and himself to the ground

            At that point GZ could have gotten on top, with Trayvon yelling “Get off!” and then we heard the rest on Jenna’s 911 call: GZ takes his gun out right then; 40 seconds of screaming; then the shot.

            Please give me your input. I respect your views.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            Thanks, Cielo –

            Based on your previous comment, I am seriously thinking there was:

            (1) the encounter – verbal, (“What are you doing … ” reported by both DeeDee AND Jenna of the HOA);

            (2) with a GZ grab to TM’s shirt,

            (3) a takeown/fall, as a result of the grab,

            (4) with GZ on top, with TM yelling “Get offfff!”

            (5) GZ “interrogating” with TM yelling “I don’t knooooowwwww,”

            (6) GZ ordering TM to “Shut the fuck up! Keep quiet!” (which Jeremy interpreted as a directive from GZ to Jeremy to “keep quiet about what you are seeing” (i.e., don’t tell anyone) – we hear
            Jeremy’s report to Jenna);

            (7) GZ draws gun, tells TM “You gonna die tonight, motherfucker,”

            (8) TM’s screams escalate – Unwavering (no motion by screamer involved)

            (9) Shot fired;

            (10) Scream ceases immediately;

            (11) GZ seen by witnesses rising from the body, with TM prone.

            (12) Cops arrive.

            Elapsed time: not much more than a minute.

            Is that how you see it? I have eliminated wrestling in the grass and changes of position, as reported by JohnW6. Nobody else reported seeing them on the ground before the shot. The young kid looking for his dog only saw the red-jacket guy – and if he were on top of TM, in the dark, that is exactly what the kid would see: one guy in a red jacket, as Lonnie has pointed out in irrefutable detail.

            Through all of the above, GZ is totally unmussed, ready for the cover of Gentlemen’s Quarterly (if he were, in fact, a “gentleman”.)

            Let me know the scenario as you see it. Thanks!

          • parrot says:

            “… Nobody else reported seeing them on the ground before the shot.”

            I don’t know if by “before the shot” you mean the whole struggle from first verbal exchange to the murder.

            However, witness 18 was the only one that I know of who was looking at the two struggling before, during and after Trayvon was shot. She is an important, credible witness.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @parrot –

            Absolutely credible, with a sustained view of the final encounter and struggle: ALL IN ONE PLACE.

            No scooting around (which I believe is Cielo’s viewpoint).

            I am coming around to seeing this, too. No wrestling from place-to-place, which would have messed up GZ’s wardrobe. Bandbox perfect as he disembarks in the sallyport at SPD.

            This disregards JohnW6’s witness statement(s), which are not considered credible by many, due to his recanting and about-face.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            BDLR has said that they have a witness who saw the whole thing from beginning to end, and that they also know that Trayvon made it home by using the most direct route. It was during one of the hearings where BDLR says that there is a witness to the entire encounter. But I do have the link to the first bond hearing where he says, or rather the Detective says they know that Trayvon made it home and used the most direct route from the mail kiosk. http://tinyurl.com/bn5e4xe Look right down near the bottom for the link to Tzar’s post.

          • cielo62 says:

            Lonnie~ “made it home” but didn’t enter?

            ________________________________

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            My best guess is: “Made it home but could not enter”. Trayvon isn’t a coward, he bravely faced the flames to save his fathers life. He wouldn’t seek to enter the house while being followed, knowing that would put Chad at risk. So, if there was someone out there within sight of him entering the house, he would probably turn away. Those houses aren’t a bit like safe rooms. The rear of the house is just a glass patio door. A sharp rap and it shatters, giving entry to the ill intended.

            Things would certainly have been different if Trayvon’s father or Brandy were home, he’d probably call out for them. But, with only Chad there, he’d just be getting Chad into trouble. Trayvon bravely turned away to save Chad and accept the troubles on himself.

            Of course, we don’t know if that was GZ behind him, it could very well have been Osterman or Taaffe and Trayvon would not know. Trayvon would have to run north to get away and, as he did so, GZ could simply come through one of the cut throughs behind Trayvon as he
            passed, letting MO or Taaffe move away into the background again.
            The Zimmercreep would be so excited to have his hands on his prey, he forgot about the need to push Trayvon down to the T to match the story he planned to tell. Or, by this time Trayvon’s yelling was attracting witnesses, making it impossible to move around freely without being seen.

            GZ tells the same story anyway, even though Trayvon was not at the T, because GZ already has the blood on his head, that he had prepared before hand, so perhaps someone was supposed to pour a little blood on the walkway down by the T and that’s what GZ had in mind, that his story had to match the plan. However, when his cohort saw that GZ wasn’t going to reach the T, he decided not to pour the blood, since the story would obviously have to be changed.

            Then the very publicly announced “call my wife…” was simply a ruse to provide cover for MO and Shelly to explain being there so soon.

            If they were planning some ruse to enable GZ to claim self-defense, why not give GZ some deadly weapon to plant on GZ? One that wouldn’t host fingerprints?:

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            They, obviously couldn’t afford a gun that would have been either untraceable or traceable to someone prepared.

            The blood illustration is just to show how pre-planning can get one locked into a story about a situation that is dynamic. There’s evidence dropped at the T, even though the body is 40 feet away, clearly the story needs some adjustment, yet none is ever made.

            @Lonnie Starr. It was the first bond hearing where Gilbreath, under cross by BDLR, said that they determined the route Trayvon took was heading home. He didn’t say Trayvon made it home.

            In the 2/29/12 interrogation, Serino told GZ that an anonymous witness stated there was a verbal encounter before things went to the ground, and that GZ attempted to restrain Trayvon.

            In his interview with Dr. Phil, Osterman said that GZ got out of his truck to see where “he was suppose to be.” That conveys there was a plan on where “the assholes” who always get away were suppose to be captured — by the back gate.

            Someone here pointed out too that the cops saw or tracked GZ’s truck on Twin Oaks by GPS.

            Oh great, just wrote a reply and it disappeared while I was trying to get the link. Anyway let’s try again.

            That was me who spotted the header on the NEN call that notes the nearest intersection as Long Oaks Way. That has to be the E911 auto GPS function at work, since I doubt the operator would have bothered to type that information, even if he had it in front of him.
            I doubt that the system displays actual GPS coordinates, but instead displays a location on a dynamically updating map. This is probably why Sean says “Are you following him?”. Not because of the noises he hears on the phone, but because he’s actually able to watch GZ’s phone moving around. That is what E911 is supposed to do, allow the call center to locate and track callers, so they can provide assistance, even when the caller is unable to give their location.

            This system was implemented in 2008-09 in Sanford as part of a state wide 911 system upgrade. It uses military grade GPS signals placing locations with an accuracy of 2 to 3 feet.

            Trayvon’s phone would have had a GPS system too, because mfg’s installed a chip for it, because it had become a popular way for service providers to earn extra money, by providing location sensitive ads. MOM has let it be known that GPS data has been retrieved from Trayvon’s phone, but says that he received data for all times that Trayvon was in Sanford, EXCEPT 2/26/12. Of course we know that not all claims MOM makes are true, so this one is unlikely to be true, unless there is some justification that would allow the SP to hold back such discovery.

            Anyway the first bond hearing was posted by Tzar and I’ve added it to the HERE, it’s really stunning to watch considering that there is so much argument over TM’s route and timing etc.,

            That is why the State is very confident is saying that GZ “pursued” Trayvon.

            You know, as I watched the interrogation of Jodi Arias, it was entertaining hearing her ask the detective how they obtained certain evidence. For instance, “How do you know it’s my palm print?”

            Can you imagine GZ asking O’Mara how the State knows he was not returning to his truck and was neither at the T?

            TICK TOCK.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            On the NEN call page there’s a box up top that’s labeled “nearest intersection” and I’m pretty sure that’s an auto fill box. Filled in by the E911 software. There would also be an onscreen map, showing the location of the cell phone calling in. That indicator will move as the caller moves, otherwise what would be the point of GPS enabling E911? So, while we’re listening to the tape and we hear GZ start huffing and puffing, we say sure, no wonder Sean realized GZ was following Trayvon.

            But you see… Police authorities have long known that you don’t let everyone know everything all the time. Because if you do, people will find a way to defeat you. So Sean doesn’t say “I see that you’re following him.” He says “Are you following him?” Had GZ answered no, he would have sealed his fate right then and there. But for some reason GZ realized he’d better not lie on this point, so he says yes he is. All the while wondering how Sean knew that.

            Truth is, heavy breathing and strange noises over the phone aren’t going to give you a very good idea of what someone is doing. Of course, it says a lot about what the SPD thinks of GZ, if Sean expects GZ to follow. But the point is, Sean was most likely watching GZ’s phone as it began rapidly moving across the screen.

            I’m pretty sure that the E911 system allows the operator to keep tracking a phone, even after the caller hangs up. Otherwise a dropped call or otherwise broken connection could easily thwart rescue. Sean has only to tap a key and he’s tracking GZ up until the police arrive. GZ is toast.

          • Xena says:

            @Lonnie Starr

            Sean has only to tap a key and he’s tracking GZ up until the police arrive. GZ is toast.

            That explains why after Sean asked if GZ wanted to meet the cop at the mail boxes, and GZ changed his mind and wanted the cop to call him for his location, that Sean would believe GZ was going in a direction opposite of the mail boxes and thus, also not where his truck was parked.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            If you go back and listen to the NEN tape again, at the end of the call it seems inconsequential, but Sean doesn’t say that he’ll have the police call when they get there, he says that he’ll do it. Which could mean that he’ll call the police when they get there, but it could very well mean that he’ll call the police and tell them where you are when they get there.

            I’m pretty sure GZ was given a tour of the E911 call center at some point in time, funny he never seems to remember the consequences of having data recorded and stored. When Sean said “okay I’ll call him when he gets there”, that should have rung a bell in GZ’s head. Which is probably exactly what Sean was trying to do, alert GZ that his movements were being tracked without saying so in so many words on a recorded call.

            He couldn’t tell GZ that he had GPS on him, since that might have caused GZ to put the phone down to avoid being tracked, and Sean would have been fired. GZ is toast!

            Wow, Lonnie, that military-grade GPS info is stunning! And to think Sean can testify as to GZ’s movement as observed on the scanner in front of Sean during the 311 call!

            The defense must be shaking in its boots …

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            Have you read up on the e911 system?

            Understandably they don’t want to give out much on what it can do. But it’s not hard to figure out what it’s capabilities are.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            That’s a very good composite. What we don’t realize very often is, there are different scenarios because different witnesses testify to seeing different things. This creates a whole different set of “must be’s” [as in: it must be this or it must be that] and these are usually resolved by placing the actors in the different positions, then trying to draw lines between where they were to how they got to the next position.

            Of course if any of these observations are mistaken, the entire effort is thrown off course. Then the answer is to do what you have done, throw out the controversial mid points and go straight from start to finish, picking up only the points most likely to be trustworthy.

            I always work back from the trajectory of the shot. How did this happen? Then I try hang the evidence and “the unknowns” on the tree. Later some of the “unknowns” crash off.

            I suspect we are in for amazing surprises, come June …

            Won’t bother me in the least to find my scenario is wrong — as long as the evidence convicts Zimmerman.

          • cielo62 says:

            PirhanaMom~ I’m not married to my theory, either. It’s just my visual of what happened taking into account variables that I think of as key pieces of evidence. As long as he is convicted, I don’t care if I was WAY off the mark.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @ Cielo –

            We’re all united on this: however Bernie de la Rionda successfully convinces the jury to convict Zimmerman – that’s the scenario we love!

          • cielo62 says:

            PirhanaMom~ “My version” is based on a few details that have really struck me. I agree with Lonnie that there is a back story somewhere, maybe based on mistaken identity, or maybe getting a “stooge” to blame for the loss of the $3,000 laptop. Maybe I’ve read too many stories, but I could see the blame being shifted to “some kid visiting in the neighborhood” for the loss of the laptop. Maybe the 3 stooges fingered him for GZs wrath. So GZ decides to punish this nosy intruder that messed up his heist. Maybe he was depending on the money he would have received for that item, and he finds himself in a financial pickle (again). Anyway, GZ confronts Trayvon. Trayvon askes GZ why he is following him (“why are you following me?”). GZ responds with a challenge to his turf (“What are you doing around here?”). GZ pushes Trayvon to elicit a violent response. Trayvon yells “Get off!”.  This shove disconnects the phone call to Dee Dee. Instead of a violent reponse, Trayvon takes off again,with renewed energy by adrenalin. This run creates the debris field. Trayvon slips or is pushed on the wet grass. He lands probably on his knees, then turns around to face GZ. He ends up sitting on his butt. GZ “mounts” him (another episode of mirroring behavior). GZ makes no contact with the ground, except for his boot tips. No tussle. GZ proceeds to pin Trayvon with his knees to the ground while Trayvon screams in pain. This is when the “interrogation” takes place. He gets no useful information. Enraged, GZ stands and yanks Trayvon to his feet. That would not be hard for a former bouncer.  He pulls his gun and Trayvon starts his haunting screams. GZ shoots; the scream ends with the shot. The key points for me: They are both standing. Trayvon is pulling away but facing GZ. Dynamic but with little movement from the spot. After the shot, of course the body falls limply to the ground. GZ does his frisking for a weapon and/or bullet hole. That is how I “see” the episode. There can be no tussle; GZ is too clean. The shot HAS to be from a standing position to satisfy the ballistics. As for the child witness who says he saw only one guy on the grass with a red jacket; it doesn’t fit with the documented cleanliness of GZs appearance. I feel his testimony was tainted onsite or afterwards. Kids are notorious for NOT getting details, and will often repeat the last thing they heard. (I say this as a teacher of 20 years experience working with kids). I also support that GZ came pre-wounded to the fight and the excersion caused the head wounds to leak a little during the interrogation. Hence the blood trails. The nose boo-boo was from the recoil of his cheap-ass popgun. I don’t know if we’ll ever get the real details, but that is what I see based on the evidence. Let me know if I failed to account for anything.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @Cielo,

            WOW! a lot to consider here!

            Do you shoot? I do, and if I had TM pinned to the ground with my knees on his arms, and I was clutching his shirts – which I had done from the first moment of encounter, to control and detain him – I would simply raise my ass (because my knees are kneeling on Trayvon’s arms) which would, in fact, be more comfortable for me, then reach back with my “shooting arm”, pluck the Kel-Tek from my waistband holster, LEAN OVER TRAYVON’S TORSO, and position the gun vertically to Trayvon’s chest – maybe even nudge it to the badge (we don’t know yet the relationship of the badge to the bullet hole). The shooter’s right hand meets the victim’s left chest where the heart is located. Incredibly easy to place the muzzle of the gun and fire. And, if I were GZ at that moment (and with a shaved head, yet), the fresh narrow scrapes on the back of my head would bleed in the downward, forward motion.

            I keep checking out installed (not new at the store) sprinkler heads and the screw in the center is often slightly raised. The screw sets emitter pressure so directs how far the water shoots out. And often the sprinkler heads do not fully retract after the water is turned off, because calcium and other minerals in the water build up around the screw – does not create problems for sprinkling. Does gouge your shaved head if you drag it across.

            Or – running between buildings may have thrown or tripped GZ into leafless trees/shrubs, just before grabbing Trayvon.

            I agree the kickback from the Kel-Tek caused the facial blood – because beady-eyed GZ had to lean OVER Trayvon’s chest in close proximity – just inches – to center the shot, and fire. If they were standing, his face would be much further away from the recoil and it would not zap him.

            I don’t go around shooting people, but during the 70’s I worked in counter-terrorism (but not as an agent) and spent a lot of time with cops. Some of their outlook wears off. I like the guys I worked with (they were all guys at that time except for one female Inspector at Scotland Yard in 1985) but they were assigned to me – so I expect I got the pick of the crop. And they were often good hunting buddies. So I can only say it is way off the moon to hold on to somebody vertically to shoot them. First – THEY’VE GOT THEIR ARMS FREE, so they can grab the gun and shoot YOU, or at least deflect your shot by smashing your arm aside. And they would be moving in some attempt to escape. If you have them detained by grasp you don’t take out your gun to threaten them. You just say “Hold it – I’ve got a gun.” In fact, since most cops’ guns are at their sides, they don’t want to be close to a “detainee”. They’ll usually yell, “Freeze! Get your hands up!”, THENSTEP BACK OUT OF RANGE when the suspect’s arms are elevated, then keep their hand in proximity to the gun, ready to fire. “Never let the suspect get close enough to even lunge for your gun.” This is not ballroom dancing.

            And what if Trayvon WERE armed? GZ didn’t know, or not.
            Would you take the chance of dragging a possibly armed “suspect thug” upright, with his arms free – ready to go for his OWN gun? What’s with the idea of putting any quarry in a position to do you harm – or spoil your aim?

            Now, I know GZ is plenty stupid about a lot of things and was not trained as an officer – just taught informally “to shoot” by Osterman and develop his eye for target shooting. (Did he have pit-bull images as targets?) Supposedly, he was being trained to defend himself.

            On the other hand, Osterman was an experienced cop, so surely he warned GZ to KEEP THE GUN AWAY FROM HIS ASSAILANT’S GRASP. That’s one of the problems for untrained “home defense”: – that’s how, often, the bad guy gets your gun. If you are going to shoot, shoot from a distance. If he starts to advance toward you SHOOT NOW. A sure sign he will be a deadly threat (with your weapon) is if he won’t get his hands in the air.

            It is so easy for the prosecution to equate the trajectory of the bullet with both killer and victim in the upright position, using the Medical Examiner’s testimony and referring to (their own version of) LLMPapa’s brilliant analysis of relative height of the killer and his victim.

            My guess is that the prosecution won’t get into the position at the time of the shot because it’s so complicated — UNLESS there’s some damning FIBER EVIDENCE they can introduce. We know none of that yet. If there’s no additional conclusive evidence I think Bernie would let them assume the shooting was vertical and that Trayvon was so docile he stood stock-stil out of fear.

            But if there’s anyone experienced in combat on that jury, there’s going to be concern.

            Yes, there is the debris field, but I see those items in close proximity to “the takedown” and a result of the preliminary struggle.

            But the whole argument is “self defense” and it can be SO proved GZ was not under Trayvon. Of course, one of the many reasons I came to believe “GZ on top” was that GZ always says “the other guy did what I really did.”

            I am fascinated by the conspiracy prospect but the prosecution has to bring EVIDENCE forward to support that or O’Mara would make Bernie look like a fool (which is an amazing concept). Lonnie is the consummate crime scholar and I am impressed by all the plausible theories brought forth but have no evidence on which I can embrace those theories.

            So, Cielo – a lot more info to look forward to, right?

          • cielo62 says:

            PirhanaMom~ I’m honored you spent so much time on my visualization! I don’t shoot anything but spitballs. What you say makes sense, about just lifting up your butt a few inches to make the shot. But GZs arm movements during his 2 interviews show him consistently having his shooting arm straight. Since it’s one of the few things he doesn’t change in his narratives, I think it might be true. Accounting for that arm position, he would have had to have been standing. Why lock your elbows for shooting if you are hovered over your target? And would that position you suggest account for the straight back to front entry? I agree that fiber analysis will provide some more clues. I just never bought that “tussle” scene. GZ was too clean right afterwards. His vitals were NORMAL, after killing a human being and supposedly in a fight for his life. GZ could have gotten those baby scratches from slipping on the grass and conking his melon head on the dog poop sign. I’ve gotten worse scratches medicating a cat. All I can say is, June can’t get here soon enough.   Hoodies up! Tick, Tock!

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @Cielo –

            Yes, like you, I saw ” … GZs arm movements during his 2 interviews show him consistently having his shooting arm straight. Since it’s one of the few things he doesn’t change in his narratives, I think it might be true.”

            So here’s how I took those performances:

            GZ was demonstrating “supercop” shooting skills he learned from all those shooting lessons with Osterman, and those hundreds if not thousands of bullets they wasted on those paper targets.

            He proudly demonstrated his non-wavering Cool Hand Luke, “make my day!” gun-handling skills. Liked showing how unflappable and brave he was, finishing off the baddie without even flinching.

            He was performing for his audience: Sanford Police Department. He craved their admiration..

            Then LATER, it hit me: WATCH HIS OTHER HAND!

            He has his dominant left hand CURLED UP, really, really CLOSE TO HIS CHEST unconsciously remembering how he CLUTCHED Trayvon’s shirts.

            THAT unconscious re-creation of his hand told me he had Trayvon DETAINED and did NOT have to kill Trayvon to save his own life. There was NO “self defense.”

            Further, it’s hysterically funny that the bravado he shows with his proud, outstretched arm DEBUNKS his story of firing into Trayvon from underneath.

            But the hand he’s paying absolutely no attention to – the left, dominant arm – that hand DOES REMEMBER the position it was in when the shot was fired — it was grasping Trayvon’s shirts, to keep Trayvon steady as Zimmerman literally closed in for the kill, leaning over Trayvon, with that “in your face” mode, telling Trayvon, “You’re going to die tonight, mother-fucker,” then firing that single, CAREFULLY-placed shot into Trayvon’s heart.

            Please watch the re-creation again, Cielo, especially when he’s videod (without realizing it) talking to the stress-test operator.
            When Trayvon’s shirts are grasped as Zimmerman unconsciously shows, so close to Zimmerman’s chest, and you account for the “air lock” between shirts and body — how could Zimmerman POSSIBLY shoot with OUTstretched arm?

            NO ROOM to stretch out his arm.

            At the time of the shot, his elbow was bent, and his wrist bent carefully to place the muzzle of the gun, perpendicular to Trayvon’s chest, as Trayvon was pinned to the ground, so he could shoot straight into the heart.

            He did not want to shoot at an angle, because that might not have killed him. He wanted to drill that bullet straight in, and he did.

            With a liar like Zimmerman and all his heroic fiction, I’m placing my bet on what he DOESN’T try to “show to impress.”

            I watched what is second-nature to Zimmerman’s DOMINANT HAND — “the hand that remembers” – his left: CURLED AND GRASPING SO CLOSE TO ZIMMERMAN’S OWN CHEST.

            That is the arm, the hand, THE MOTION THAT I BELIEVE.

            Not trying to convince you, Cielo, Just telling you what I saw and how it convinced me.

            On the issue of the muss-free George, I agree with you on the band-box freshness of Zimmerman’s wardrobe. Kneeling on Trayvon’s arms to immobilize him, the only part of Zimmerman to touch earth would be the front tips of his boots. And we have all seen the photos of that grass.

            But there is more coming down the pike for us to see and learn.

            What we are all agreed on is that Zimmerman’s sorry lie about “being under Trayvon, with Zimmerman’s life at risk”, is total garbage.

            And so it will come to pass, that Zimmerman’s future is headed to the dumps, also.

          • Xena says:

            @cielo62.

            Accounting for that arm position, he would have had to have been standing.

            I agree. It has always been my belief that they were standing when GZ fired the gun. When I listened to the 911 tape that captured the screams, I could see it. After GZ told Trayvon to shut the f up, he thought Trayvon would submit, and began standing him up. But Trayvon tried turning to run and he screamed again. That is when we hear Trayvon begin a faint “help” that is cut short as though his body was jerked. Then the gun shot.

            I also believe that the injury to GZ’s nose was caused by the gun’s recoil since he shot with one hand. In the video for the voice stress test, watch GZ as he shows the recoil.

            It happened fast.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @Xena.

            Agree, Xena, on the recoil, particularly because GZ had to shoot one-handed, by necessity, 2/26/12 and the Kel-Tek is so lightweight and flimsy, without the mass to absorb the energy in the recoil.

            It was “POW! right to the kisser”, as Jackie Gleason liked to say.

            The overhead video with the stress-test operator is one of my faves. I don’t think Zimmerman was aware he was being taped.
            He was intent on impressing the operator, and not playing to the camera.

            Took me months and months to catch what GZ was doing unconsciously with this dominant left hand, as he tells his story.

            BUT – whatever scenario Bernie advances to the jury, it will debunk GZ’s claim that he was a helpless attack victim under Trayvon that night.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            Lonnie is the consummate crime scholar and I am impressed by all the plausible theories brought forth but have no evidence on which I can embrace those theories.

            The purpose of having these theories is not to simply amuse, but it’s to have a frame in place in case meaningful evidence is caught, but has no theory needed to give it the context it needs. Evidence without a theory of what it means is useless.

            Let’s say they release the cctv’s from the other stores and complexes in the area and we notice the same car the 3 stooges arrived at the 711 in, coursing along the same route Trayvon would have taken to get home. Without a theory of what part these 3 guys could play in the saga, the meaning of this data could easily be lost. Especially if there is only one instance of capture. Because that would seem errant, coincidental and meaningless. With a theory of their possible involvement in place, one would then look to see how long it might have taken them to get to this point. It it takes them as long or longer to drive the distance that Trayvon has walked, well… Then we know what conclusions to jump to 😀

            Also you’ll no doubt note, I don’t just dream up these theories out of whole cloth, but there has to be evidence enough to indicate that some speculation is in order.

          • PiranhaMom says:

            @Lonnie,

            I’m not disagreeing with any of your theories – or the value of theorizing. And I don’t see any of this done for amusement. I think it’s important to note all details that COULD BE applicable, and have a place to plug in evidence when it becomes available. So there is enormous merit in what you are doing, and everyone who contributes theories/scenarios/concepts.

            What I have been saying is that I am not YET (repeat: YET)convinced of conspiracy or “pre-injury by GZ” scenarios.

            I think Osterman was on board – he was certainly “on site” immediately – but do not yet perceive the killing was premeditated in advance with others.

            I am an avid follower of your work and believe it has tremendous value. You are detailed, analytical and persistent, putting together the facts you discern with great logic.

            As I keep saying, “There’s more to learn.”

            That day is coming soon.

          • cielo62 says:

            PirhanaMom~ I think Osterman’s role was to help in the APPREHENSION of Trayvon. But GZ, being both a loser and an hothead, decided to kill Trayvon. I’m sure Osterman was extremely pissed at that turn of events, so he spirited Zimmerman away that same night to get a story pieced together. In order to justify an apprehension, Zimmerman also needed some “proof” of a crime. He was going for assault, not theft. Trayvon smacks Zimmerman, Zimmy can claim detaining Trayvon for assault. Hence, the pre-wounds.

One problem, easily solved is, why MO needs to be covered for, he was there to help apprehend Trayvon, but he still did not want to be a part of the scene when the police arrived. This makes sense because with his credentials, he’d make a strong supporter for GZ from the background. So, he’d have the “Call my wife” ruse as a standard plan. The trouble with this idea is that it would mean that MO went on patrols with him often. This could easily be accomplished if MO kept his distance from GZ, so no one would recognize them as partners then.

            Otherwise, if MO does not regularly hunt with GZ, and this was a one-off thing. How does a low level thing like a simple apprehension, require this level of planning? How do they achieve it for just this one single event? Because to work it requires they have Shelly’s position somewhere outside RATL as well. So, although I see no evidence that MO goes on these patrols with GZ, there is a real possibility that they did at times. If so, did MO know Ransberg(burg) and Burgess? If he spends any time at RATL, he has the skill set that would put these boys on his radar, for sure. Remember, he was fired for corruption, not incompetence.

            Make no mistake, this is Florida and a very racist county to boot. I have no doubt that had Trayvon not been killed, Tracey and Brandy et al could have raised a bit of a stink, but it would have all been put to rest quietly without any charges, there certainly would have been no Atty Crump or Sharpton. The racists in charge would have simply stood their ground, and without a death, there would have been no way to build any momentum, so the whole thing would have died, or developed into a minor civil suit against GZ and the HOA, but with no national and little local attention.

            So that would have been a basic plan, which did not include any killing. But, once GZ had killed TM, he would realized then how important it would be, to ensure that MO had his cover, so that he could be free to lend ongoing support. Trouble there is, it pre supposes that there will be some investigation. Nor is that indication of pre-planning a little thing. Think about this: Since GZ abides by NW rules so scrupulously on every other call in, he obviously knows the rules by heart. But the devices GZ uses on the NEN call on 2/26/12 are not created ‘on the fly”, since they require advanced planning.

            In fact, it makes great sense that there is a NEN call, contrived from the earliest, to provide cover for all GZ’s support team. Hence the call is contrived to start with a coincidental sighting near Taaffe’s place. Providing cover for all by making it appear that GZ does not need any supporters. But, when was it realized that the call should start there? Probably not on the spot, so it’s more likely than not that something was planned.

            Yet another thing to think about is, to make this story work, someone would have to know that Trayvon had actually gone to the 711, and not to the MI bank eh? Since, according to the story, Trayvon had not been seen going anywhere and returning. GZ would not know about the skittles and tea until after he killed Trayvon. Ostensibly no one would have known where Trayvon was, until he appeared in the cut through at FT’s. But, GZ actually does not see Trayvon until he looks in the mail kiosk.

            So, how does he know to construct a tale about Trayvon coming by FT’s, where GZ passes way too late to see him there? Why does he get this path of travel so right? Just a wild guess? Like the wild guess he made to leave home and head straight for the mail kiosk?

            Of course, my point is: You can’t have too many “favorable” things that must happen, ~ happen by coincidence! One coincidence, occurring fortuitously on time is fine. But when you need more than one, and they both [or even more] happen on time, in just the right way, place and time to further the operation, you have a falsehood.

            So, these “conspiracy theories” I seem to be dreaming up, are really attempts to replace the various coincidences, with alternative causes. Happy Hunting.

            Lonnie. The coincidence of Fogen spotting Trayvon at Taaffe’s from day one never sold me. Then the timeline crushed that. Then it turns out Frank “The Racist Tank”: is Fogens friend and a big mouth, giving clues as he goes. It became obvious Fogen is lying. At 1st I thought he called Fogen and now with information about the “Condo Connection” it seems Trayvon was being observed well before.

            Phone records…..it’s going to come to phone records. I’ll bet the farm SheLie was with him, exited the truck, went one way and Osterliar was there on a different route. Trayvon being on edge by Fogen following him was “herded” back and that’s where Fogen confronted him. SheLie’s recent phone records retrieval is a key.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            I’m with you on not liking some of my theories, some of them don’t impress me much at all either, but I can’t stand to see, what could be valuable evidence go to waist, if it points somewhere that might be fruitfully explored.

            They started the Ransberg(burg) questions when they used him and Burgess to show that “they don’t always get away”. But they mentioned that Ransberg(burg) was white and that he traveled with three blacks. So, it struck me as rather odd that a white guy would show up at 711, with two black guys in tow, what with Burgess being in jail the count just seemed to click.

            I’m still on the fence about whether it was premeditated or not. By which I mean not a spur of the moment decision, but the result of a longer advanced plan. Of course, as Professor has pointed out, it could be murder 1, based only on that final split second. But I’m not yet dealing with that. Although I do believe that GZ decided to pull the trigger without facing any real threat. The prosecution is probably not willing to risk it all on an M1 trial.

          • Xena says:

            @Lonnie Starr

            Evidence without a theory of what it means is useless.

            Although I had not thought about it along those lines, I can now see the application.

            You noticed the behavior of the 3 stooges in the 7-Eleven, and Trayvon leaving just after they drove off. I had not noticed that. Now I am able to use an outline involving evidence and theory. For instance, my theory is based on GZ using NW as a cover-up for his gang of thieves. That is based on evidence from his MySpace page; how he behaved in court as ShelLIE misrepresented her knowledge of the Paypal donations, and his gang tattoo.

            Moving along from there;

            Evidence: GZ abandoned his home just after leaving the police station after he killed Trayvon.

            Question: Why would he do that? It’s a gated community. Although anyone might have been able to walk into the community, only residents or visitors in vehicles let in by residents can do a “drive-by.”

            Logical answer: GZ had to be afraid of someone who resides in that gated community.

            Evidence: GZ associated his observation of Burgess with his reason for thinking Trayvon was suspicious.

            Question: Why would GZ use his observation of Burgess, who he had seen previously in that community on garbage days, with Trayvon who he said he had not seen before?

            Logical answer: Burgess is somehow involved in GZ’s reason for wanting to “capture” Trayvon, but not for the reason GZ gives. Burgess resided in that community.

            Then you came along with the theory that Burgess was a member of the ring including the 3 stooges.

            I am still convinced that someone beat the daylights out of GZ that Friday or Saturday resulting in the head boo-boo’s, and picking at the scalps started the bleeding again that Sunday evening.

            PiranhaMom~ I posted mine before I read this. Yes, it’s pretty much what I had envisioned except for a few details. You’ll see in my complete post. I don’t think GZ was ever totally “on top of” Trayvon, except maybe for the frisking and turning over a limp body. The only thing you missed was the debris field.

        Oh, do I hope the “cleaned up 911 call” shows exactly what this evil son-of-a-gun has done. And the fiber testing. And the RATL witnesses. I hope the State doesn’t have to turn to Shellie or Mark Osterman at all.

          Oh yes!! And GZ’s phone records; his medical history; why he does not have a gun registered to himself; and whether his CCL was valid. And — And, what did the FDLE observe of his actions when he left town until he rolled into Jacksonville.

        What ? Are you saying GZ is actually saying that Trayvon managed to squirm out from underneath him!!!???

        CL, methinks you are confused. GZ has basically two types of slips and the interviews are littered with both types:

        1. He inadvertently lets the truth out and quickly corrects it

        2. He tries to project onto Trayvon what he was doing.

        In this case, as I am sure you are not trying to say that Trayvon squirmed out from underneath GZ, from the extremely fluid description he was giving Singleton, and from my own logic, this is a type 1. slip, i.e. GZ was underneath Trayvon but as he says managed to squirm his way out from underneath which if you take it further put him in a position to be able to shoot Trayvon which he did… it puts him on top. This is not to say Trayvon wasn’t squirming to get away, just that in this case GZ is not projecting, he is merely telling the plain and simple truth which is HE GOT OUT FROM UNDERNEATH changing a hell of a lot in his story and not in his favour.

        • PiranhaMom says:

          re: “This is not to say Trayvon wasn’t squirming to get away, just that in this case GZ is not projecting, he is merely telling the plain and simple truth which is HE GOT OUT FROM UNDERNEATH changing a hell of a lot in his story and not in his favour.”

          That is how John W^ described in his second (corrective) interview that he saw Zimmerman trying to rise and reverse his position – he ha not yet scooted over to the dogwalk.

          I know JohnW6 is heavily discounted here, but I thought that second interview was credible – and compelling.

      • You all have thoughtful comments says:

        Yes, Trayvon WAS underneath gz trying unsucessfully (maybe by squirming) to get out of that position. However, sadly, gz remained on top.

      • You all have thoughtful comments says:

        And, gz remained in control and shot Trayvon dead.

      • Cercando Luce says:

        @gbrbsb:
        Trayvon’s clothing was embedded with debris front and back, whereas the evil clod looked like he was fresh from the cleaners, front and back (except the toes of his shoes), in his police-station photos.

        I think there’s a third variable, although not a slip: George “borrows” his victim’s actions for his lies, which makes them easier to believe because he describes a detailed sequence of actions that actually happened(to his victim) which he observed– and he claims it for himself.

        Trayvon squirmed trying to escape his tormentor, and his hoody slid up. IMO, the single blood-drop from GZ on the bottom of Trayvon’s undershirt dripped from behind GZ’s head, possibly before he grabbed the shirts and shot. If he were on top at the time of the shot, with his firing arm bent as he showed in his interviews, the gun was close to his face and unsupported, it kicked back into his nose (hence nosebleed), and the shell casing hit and burnt the side of bridge of nose (still looks like a burn months later).

        The more I think about it,
        0.) the more I loathe the lying defendant, if possible, and
        1.) the more I think the defendant remained on top of his victim for a full minute before killing him. Feared for his life, not so much.

        • PiranhaMom says:

          @Cercando.

          None of us have seen the dimensions and shape of the Zimmerman blood on Trayvon’s undershirt – we just see that it was identified after analysis by the Medical Examiner for DNA.

          This was sweatshirt material also. They can identify by shape (droplet or smear, for example) for the jurors.

          I believe Zimmerman’s blood got on the front undershirt after the shot, when Zimmerman was searching the body. He was rummaging around looking for a gun/holster – first in front, then flipped him over and searched in back – where Zimmerman kept his holster (“Flipped” is the word Det. Serino used.)

          Zimmerman’s blood would have gotten on Zimmerman’s hand without Z thinking – he put his finger to his lip or nose because it was uncomfortably sticky, simply by reflex. I think the recoil snapped back and cracked Z on the lip/lower nose (or just the lip.) At that point, he bled, then Zimmerman checked it out with his finger, One of those quick moves people make without even thinking. Then, within a few seconds, that hand smeared it on Trayvon’s undershirt during the weapons search.

          Zimmerman would hope to find Trayvon to be armed, because it would bolster Z’s story that Trayvon was a thug, and Z was thus in fear for his life.

          Also, witnesses saw Zimmerman running his hands over Trayvon’s body (his back) after the shot. I believe he was checking for an exit wound. He would not expect one, because he used a hollow-point bullet, – but if there WERE an exit wound, the bullet would be embedded in the earth, and it would be proof that Z shot Trayvon while he had Trayvon pinned to the ground, meaning big trouble for Z. The hollow-point, however, performed as expected.

          I agree that Trayvon was imprisoned by Z the whole length of the scream, because there were no volume fluctuations as would be caused by movement.

          The terror Trayvon felt cannot be imagined.

          The depravity exhibited by Zimmerman can, and will be be shown.

          Zimmerman likely had a full minute to consider causing the death of this young person. He went right ahead and did it.

          Well, Papa Zim had already asked the investigators to make it all go away. GZ apparently thought that he had more influence.

          Funny thing is that during his cross-examination of Gilbreath, at GZ’s bond hearing, BDLR asked if it was true that GZ knew FDLE had monitored him the entire time he was out of town. That was true. So GZ knew he was being watched by FDLE.

          What better way to try and circumvent arrest and flee that than to make Corey think that FDLE were the bad guys causing GZ to be afraid?

      • ladystclaire says:

        @Xena, how did the FDLE know where he was, since he was in hiding with his mentor Osterman and, did the old man really think the FDLE would really look the other way on this and, just let this bird brain POS get away with killing a child?

        For him to think that he could talk his way out of this, just goes to show just how dumb he is and, the same goes for his father. the thing with his father and his family in general, they know he is guilty and, they also know what he is capable of doing, since he has been in and out of trouble for most of his adult life, as well as what he did to his cousin at such an early age.

        For some reason, he IMO was made to leave the Commonwealth of Va. it would be most interesting to find out why he left there at an early age. they knew he had anger management issues and, instead of them getting him the help that he needed, they just shipped their problem to the state of Florida.

        They are just as much to blame for what he did as he is.

          Of course, without any investigation and solely based on him saying it was GZ screaming for help. Papa Zim has been active in GZ’s excuses/defense, limited to 2 things — the yells for help and his boo-boos. Just wait until trial when prosecutors present evidence refuting GZ’s lies.

      • ladystclaire says:

        This B*****D deserves to spend the rest of his life behind bars. if his parents had got him the kind of help that he needed and, they knew his had issues with anger, maybe they wouldn’t feel that they have to lie for him and his anger issues, that led him to murder an innocent kid.

        They IMO feel the guilt of what he has done, knowing that he was very capable of doing what he did, when he killed Trayvon. even though they are lying for him, they are just as guilty as he is and, they know it. instead of them just allowing him to be held accountable for what he’s done, they are taking to the media as well as blog sites to take part in smearing this child’s name as well as those he left behind.

        Are they so ignorant that, they think people don’t know how they are taking part in smearing and slandering this kid and his family, on several blog sites? on HP ZSr. is LJP as well as some other names that he uses. then Fogen himself is believed to be darkskiesrbest, and he has several other alias’s on HP. they should all be ashamed of themselves, for taking part in these sites.

          … those who support the POS know just as well as we do, that he is guilty as charged yet they want to see him get away with what he did.

          I have a different perspective. Zidiots do not support GZ, the person. He is nothing more to them than an empty mouse trap. They continue trying to put bait on it, while catching nothing. Their stated purpose, whether through dog whistles or directly, is to provoke racial warfare; promote their conspiracy of a BGI, and eliminate racial equality from America.

          Why do you think they have good things to say about Junior, while leaving GZ completely out of the conversation? Because Junior’s diatribes are about race and the “liberal” media. Why the liberal media? Not because of what they reported about the case, but because of who reported it; i.e., Black men who have their own television and/or radio programs and/or are well known in journalism.

          They could care less about GZ’s case, whether he is acquitted or sent to prison for the rest of his life. They are using GZ’s case to wage warfare against attorney Crump and Trayvon’s parents. Sadly, they have led O’Mara down their path for more than a year, and he has made it clear that he is not ready for trial.

      But as far as “someone else did something wrong and that means Trayvon deserved to be shot too,” that’s what they do over there. Every day. Same old thing. They post stories of black male youth who have committed a crime and bitch about the “problem” of black people and somehow tie all these crimes all into Trayvon, as if he, even though dead, is responsible.

      Now their Butt-in-a-Box leader, has committed more criminal activity than anyone I’m personally acquainted with, but you don’t see them posting any kind of crimes associated or done by white male youth, complaining about violence in general. It is all blacks, all blacks’ fault, Trayvon was black, therefore, it is all his fault. That seems to be their thinking.

I don’t know of any. it’s time for these KKK members to start taking a look at the crimes committed by their own race and, stop making it look as though their own people are free of any kind of criminal activity at all. BTW, they commit more murders than these *POINTY HEADS* are willing to admit because, they are too damn busy point the finger at AA or those of Hispanic descent.

        Just tune in to the ID channel and, you will see just how many murders on those shows are committed by whites. I’m not trying to make white people look like murdering thugs, I’m just trying to be fair and balanced about what these tree people are putting out and on mainly AA. I know very well, that AA commit crimes just like people in every race known to man but, they are not the only ones who commit murder. I’m just sick of this shit out of people like those who wear pointy hats to fit their pointy heads. they need to sweep around their own damn back door, before messing with someone else’s.

      • ladystclaire says:

        BTW, please overlook my typos in the above comment but, I’m really pissed that these people can only see the crimes that AA commit and, never what their own race commit. IMO two of the biggest and most shameful murders committed by them were the murders of Emmett Till and George Stinney.

        The state of S.C. executed a 14 year old child in 1944, for a crime he did not commit. he died for a crime committed by a white kid from a well to do family. Emmett Till also aged 14 was murdered by two white men in Money Mississippi in 1955 because, he was accused of whistling at a white woman, who was the wife of one of his murderers. I can go on and on but, they know their murdering history just as well as I do. I’m not directing this to all white people no, not at all. I’ve just had enough of the tree people and their rude comments about AA and how they commit all of the crimes in this country according to them.

        When one goes over there and sees their stories and comments and the totally humanly disgraceful comments at the so-called news outlets, I wouldn’t blame you one single bit if your comments were directed at all white people. Those people are so sick and disgusting they have made me feel filthy and totally ashamed of being white. I want so badly to apologize for their behavior. I so hope that is not how white people look to people of color. I can only hope it is realized they are not “white people,” they are – as you say, “tree people,” but honestly, I’m not sure anymore. I had no idea there could be such horrible cruel and disgusting individuals. Anyway, I am so sorry that it is being done by people who look like me.

      • ladystclaire says:

        @Rachael, You are a good person and, you have a heart to match who you are. there are also other whites on this site and on others who are also good people as well, and they also know how this *LIAR* murdered this child Trayvon Martin in cold blood and, they all are expressing their what they really feel about what he did to an AA child. but, those *HEATHENS* and there are many more like them in this country, who need to stop with the lies about AA commit most of the crimes in this country.

        AA have been accused of committing crimes that, they didn’t even commit and, there are quite a few of them. Susan Smith lied about a black man taking her two kids as well as her car. Chuck Stuart shot and killed his pregnant wife and unborn child and blamed it on a black man. there are others but, I’m not going to list them all here. this is the kind of BS that confront a people who never asked to come here to this country.

        These people really need to just take the time to reflect on some of the BS that they are putting out there, about people who haven’t done a thing to them, yet they express their hatred for them in more ways than you or I could ever imagine. You are not responsible for their warped since of entitlement so, please don’t feel bad about being of the same race as they are because, like I said you are a good person/woman and, I like you very very much. this is exactly how I feel about everyone here on this site and on others, who are supporting Trayvon, Jordan and their families. this is after all suppose to be one nation under GOD right.

    I may have to stop following this case. It is literally making me sick. The hatred for a murder victim is unheard of. they are not asking why this 208lb man couldn’t handle a 158lb teenager without killing him. they are not asking why didn’t he let trayvon go after he started screaming. They are not asking why did he pursue Trayvon. they are not asking why if Trayvon beat him like he claims. Where is the bruising?where are the black eyes? They are not asking,how did he get his gun? It was on his right rear hip. It would have been impossible for him to grab it like he claims. they ignore the evidence which show he had trayvon restrained when he was killed. They gloss over his own records of violence while making up stuff about Trayvon. Trayvon was innocent he was an average teenager who got in trouble sometimes, nothing serious no violence involved just the minor nonsense teenagers get it trouble for. I usually don’t there,but i get the feeling if Trayvon was a white kid and Zimmerpunk was black. the silly stuff Trayvon got in trouble for wouldn’t even be mentioned and those same zimmerpunk supporters would be crying for zimmerpunjks head on a platter.but because Trayvon was a black kid. Writing on a locker makes him a thug. Cutting classes makes him a troubled kid. smoking weed makes him drug crazed. Smoking weed makes you sluggish and hungry not violent. unlike alcohol. All he had to do was wait for the police. He should have left Trayvon alone.

        Oh, I think they are just upset over there. They were wanting something dirty on Trayvon, not something about police corruption. But I see they are up to 5 now. LOL – here is the “plan:”

        We have decided the best way to absorb the massive amount of information in the FOIA release is to break it down into intellectually digestible bite sized morsels.

        Each day we will introduce to you “a new perspective”, more information about the now apparent intentional manipulation within the former M-DSPD objectives; and more information about Trayvon Martin’s interactions with them.

        The storyline carries itself against the backdrop of the George Zimmerman case because it outlines the Trayvon story that was, until today, hidden from view.

        There will be a few updates throughout the process each day as we present the discoveries from the words of the participants – via their sworn statements and affidavits. At the end of each segment we will drop the FOIA release as it pertains to the evidence.

    I don’t know what they’re bitching about over there at the refuse outhouse. Aside from they don’t know what they are talking about, they have a lot of nerve upset about closed cases when their “hero” walked away from assaulting a police officer with a diversion that HAD TO BE EXTENDED because of inadequate participation as well as his other crimes that mysteriously were closed. And he was allowed to buy a gun for Christ’s sake!!! Not only that, any one else who would have pulled the bail stunt he did would NOT be out right now, so I wish they would stop their baby whining, put on their big boy pants and stop worshiping their Butt in a Box (love it Xena), who should have been put away a long time ago.

But he makes it to work and he participates in his defense, and it’s important that he does, because he’s the one that can answer a lot of these questions that are going to be forthcoming at trial.

    My response to a nut job in reference what was posted on the conservative tree house…. So I am George Zimmerman. You and the conservative tree house,are making a big to do,because Trayvon may have been caught with a weed pipe more than once. Teenagers have been smoking weed for decades. And most go on to become productive people and raise families. Smoking weed doesn’t mean you deserve to be murdered. And it doesn’t make you a thug,which is what you and those other nut jobs are trying to imply. Teenagers smoked weed when i was in school. My nephews smoked weed,which i wasn’t happy about,and they were never thugs. Smoking weed is no worse than drinking alcohol. If it was up to me alcohol would be illegal. Sundance cracker himself might have smoked weed when he was in school. Hardly relevant to being murdered. That jewelery story has been beaten to death. It was never reported stolen and was returned to it’s owner. Trayvon has never been accused or charged with a crime. And he has no violent history. You are saying Trayvon deserved a bullet in his chest because he may have been caught with weed or a weed pipe multiple times. If the worse thing Trayvon ever did was smoke weed a few times i really don’t have a problem with it.The only person he hurt was himself.Including his health because smoking weed can damage the lungs just like cigarettes. And he got in trouble with his parents. Your continued efforts to justify the murder of an unarmed teenager shows how disgusting and contemptible you and others really are. Trayvon never hurt anyone. Whether he smoked weed a few times is irrelevant. Zimmerman on the other hand. Has a long history of hurting people,bullying people,harassing people. Trayvon has no such history. Trayvon was a good kid who made the usual mistakes most teenagers make. What did you do when you were a teenager?

        It’s funny how Trayvon had a screwdriver not used in any crimes and jewelry that was not gotten by any illegal means trumps Fogen’s history, especially since he is proven to have scammed the court and the public for money

        The marijuana thing is child’s play and even George Washington smoked weed

          Way back when the story first broke about the jewelry I noted that the police never bothered to put a value on the jewelry. As everyone here knows there are two categories of jewelry, real and costume! The costume or “fashion” jewelry is worth next to nothing. I don’t care how much you paid for that polished buffalo horn necklace, once it leaves the store it’s worth diddly squat! Had the jewelry been real, the police would have sought an appraisal. They never bothered because they knew the jewelry was worthless.

          Back in 2012 gold was about 1700/ounce. Dreamicis had a 300 dollar necklace that Burgess stole. That’s like a fifth of an ounce or approx. 6 grams of gold. Don’t tell me that Trayvon had jewelry that appeared to be about and ounce or so of either yellow or white gold and the police didn’t bother to check out what would have been nearly 2 thousand dollars or more of jewelry, it just doesn’t make sense.

          What does make sense is that the police were trying to sweat Trayvon, by making it appear that they had something serious on their hands and that they were going to be able to do all kinds of things because of it. They’d have threatened him with a trip to GITMO if they could.

        With that thought in mind, please call the police on me as being in the line of work I’m in and have at least 100 screwdrivers, I believe I may be a potential criminal. It’s raining right now and I believe I feel a bit suspicious.

        I know it may sound illogical, but according to The Zidiot Nation Charter, we have no choice.

      • @LadyStClaire

        I carry a screw driver in my truck every day and probably so does these ignorant racist clowns. But they just have to smear this kid b/c they cannot find anything on him. Zimmerman and his supporters were soo counting on Trayvon Martin to be a thug. So now both Zimmerman and his kkk pals have to try endlessly to paint this precious child as an attacker, drug user and criminal. To find out he was an honor student with a bright future, a child loved by his parents, a child whom his teachers stated was always cheerful rocked their world. How dare he NOT be a thug! But yet they donate money to the real lying worthless THUG who has no conscience, no respect for human life and no respect for the law.

        @Racer, Xena and SG2, you guys are what this country should be all about and, not the refuse that exist at the doghouse. we need more people like everyone here at this blog site and, the many others who are all about seeing justice be done for Trayvon and his family.

        Those who want to see Fogen get away with murdering an AA child, are just tearing this country down instead of helping to build it up and, make it an even better place to live. they would only be happy, if they could deport every race of people except their own. I’ve got news for them, that’s not going to happen. they don’t own this country and, they never will.

        Every one of you guys are the greatest and, I thank GOD for you all and your support for Trayvon and his family. I say this from the bottom of my heart and, that’s no joke. this is what I really feel for you all here at Professor Leatherman’s site and, this is for them as well. there aren’t many places where bigots haven’t infiltrated to make having a civil discussion about this case impossible.

      i have attempted to read on that site 5 or 6 times now and cant make it past 5 comments before i simply cant read another word…….the IGNORANCE there is astonishing, but even worse, much of it isnt ignorance it is stupidity.

      for communications clarity i dont see anything negative in the word “ignorant” because it simply means a person hasnt been made aware of something yet, they know nothing about the given thing, and i KNOW that ALL humans are ignorant, just about differing things, none of us comes anywhere near knowing everything.

      crossing the line between ignorance and stupidity is when after a person has been informed they reject factual truth.

      and many of those posters have i am sure been informed that racism is stupid, and they embrace it with open arms!

        Their prejudices distort everything they see like fair goers in a house of mirrors.

    • Xena says:

      @Two sides. IMO, Sundance’s “bombshell” is a dud.

      The attorney for FDLE stated in open court that there is nothing in Trayvon’s school records that is admissible at trial. Why is there nothing in Trayvon’s school records that is admissible at trial? Because nothing in them provides that Trayvon had a propensity towards violence.

      What Sundance confuses and misrepresents, is that school records are police records. Juvenile records are sealed by Florida law. No one has to request that they be sealed — they are by law. Only members of LE can see them and there is some verbiage that is done by order of the court.

      IOWs, if Sundance believes that he has Trayvon’s juvenile records and is publicly posting them, then he is in violation of the law. Best to present them for what they are — school records.

      Nothing he posted proves that GZ killed Trayvon in self-defense. That is the issue at trial, and GZ is the defendant — not Trayvon. Whenever we read the mindset of White Supremacists who think they can make victims the accused, keep in mind who is really on trial, and what they have to prove if they want to be acquitted.

      • Two sides to a story says:

        Thank you Xena. It looked like a dud to me too except that all the paper waving was a bit confusing.

        I also notice Sundance promotes many facts that are essentially known to no one at this time: who cast the first blow, if any, what exactly happened that night outside of Fogen putting a bullet through Trayvon’s heart. He essentally repeats Fogen’s story like gospel truth and as we know, there are some truck-sized holes in it.

        • Xena says:

          @Two sides. If not but for the fact that GZ got out of his vehicle to, and did, follow the unarmed 17 year old kid, the two would not have come into physical contact. That means that GZ is the aggressor. He knows it too which is why he lied about getting out of his vehicle and following Trayvon.

          As Lonnie says; TICK, TOCK.

          Your request is appreciated. GZ, aka Thugboat, aka Fogen, aka Butt in a Box, is officially charged by the State of Florida by his birth name George Michael Zimmerman. Having been charged with the felony of Murder in the Second Degree, he is the defendant. His trial is scheduled to begin on June 10, 2013.

        The nuthouse has obtained documents of of an investigation as to why trayvon’s suspensions were leaked and documents detail an investigation of the police was lying to make the crime rate at certain schools including the school trayvon went to less than they really were. in a renewed effort to justify his death. they even mention issues we already know about. they are implying the only reason Trayvon wasn’t charged in the jewelery incident is because the police was supposedly ordered not to look into it. And as usual they fail to explain the relevance.

        • PiranhaMom says:

          @Kelly.

          I wear glasses. Trayvon wore glasses. The right lens falls out of my (relatively new) glasses probably every week. I fix them. I use a tiny screwdriver with a Phillips head on one end and chisel head on the other.

          Trayvon, by his history, was a lot more mechanically inclined than I am. My guess is he was well able to repair his own glasses, too.

          I frequently carry a jeweler’s loupe. That doesn’t mean I plan to heist some diamonds. I just see details better, where needed.

          Like those tiny jewelry screws on my glasses.

          Those idiots ought to start concentrating on significant details of the evidence. Has a single one of them ever explained how Zimmerman could extricate his gun, squashed between his 207lb ass and the grass, and get it into position to shoot Trayvon horizontally through the heart?

          Let me know if you hear it.

        @Ty Flair, I have always thought that O’mara was a racist from the very beginning. if he wasn’t, then why would he align himself with such people? I also think Donald West is racist also. some people are very good, at keeping their racist attitudes from surfacing until something like this happens.

        These people don’t have to act in the manner in which they are all because, Fogen is guilty of murdering an AA child. there is no doubt in my mind, that if he had done this to a white kid, they would be the first to seek the dp for Fogen.

        I have seen some pretty nasty and cruel things in the comment sections about Trayvon, his family and AA in general, on sites that one wouldn’t expect such to be tolerated. but, it seems that anything goes as far as this case is concerned. these bigots sniff out all of these sites and, they dig their heels in just to make having a discussion about this case almost impossible. the MF racist are every where with their disgusting filth. the inbred trailer trash.

      That bomb shell is nothing. It’s just documentation detailing an internal investigation as to why trayvon’s suspensions were released. And another detailing possible coverup of incidents at Miami Dade schools. The info regarding Trayvon is nothing we haven’t already heard about him being caught with a weed pipe a few times the jewelery incident which they say was covered up which is why trayvon was never arrested or charged with stealing. they have contradicted themselves because if it was covered up we would never have heard about it. it was reported over a year ago the jewelery in question was never reported stolen and was eventually returned to its owner.

      • Xena says:

        @kllypyn. None of the Zidiot BS proves that GZ killed Trayvon in self defense. Stay focused. The Zidiot agenda is to divert attention from GZ and evidence that he murdered Trayvon, to race and disparaging everyone and anyone other than GZ and his family.

    • PiranhaMom says:

      @Shannon,

      Crump’s strong response clearly states that there are more than one payer of the settlement and that they agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential.

      So obviously the HOA structure itself (the HOA corporation, whose stakeholders are the individual owners of the 260 condo units) and its members are not paying.

      So … plural payers? Two insurance companies: that of the HOA and that of the management company.

      Sending a HUGE BRAVO to Crump for his spirited, intelligent and moving response!

      • @ Piranhamom, yes, it does sound like there’s at least two entities paying.. I would like to know who tho..just out of curiosity since it would be nice if any of the HOA members who sanctioned that idiots behavior were punished somehow.

        Ben is sorta a GOD-Like figure in my eyes since these recent vicious personal attacks against him! But this bullshit about Tracy and Sybrina is raunchy and disgustingly lowbrow, I can’t believe it! I suppose all the parents in Colorado need to be treated this way too!!!
        and I always said Ben Crump, especially as a civil rights lawyer,can take it, but that family and DD need to be protected so bad. and he’s been on top of it!
        he really laid it down nice and simple like, I like that he repeated over and over “gz profiled, pursued and killed Trayvon”!

        This is how it works insurers are like bookmakers.

        So much si if the horse does indeed win.

        They would be unable to srvice the financeial losss..
        So to isure themselfs against this they take the bet . policy.
        An lay that ber of on other boookies so that if the horse wins.
        The debt is spread arpound an absorbed by other bookies.

        Insurance companys do the same thing on a much higher an more devious form of of loading any future claims against them for policy patouts.

        Like the bookies some redistribute the policy amongst four of five different insureresm.
        Its like they are insureing themselfs against loseing big settlements wich is fair enough.

        But thats the scruplious ones an many are unscruplious an they have all sorts of ways toa avoid parting with money to there clients,

        They take your anual payments with glee an avirise.

        But tottaly different scenerio when it becomes nessesery for them to settle a claim.

        The word shysters springs to mind.
        They are even able to sell your policy/transfer it to another company without your aproaval /knowlage…

        So when you come to make your claim your informed that you must contact xyan z As they are now holding your policy.

        Regulation is non exsistant as far as I can gather.

In fact what I hear is GZ saying “help me” and then I hear Trayvon yell “help me” really loud as if to tell the same person to help him instead of helping GZ. I wonder who that person was, because he definately witnessed the shot.

        • Xena says:

          @Eugene Hudson

          Months ago, I wrote about the 911 call capturing GZ’s voice. It was after researching an ABC news reports that Trayvon called 911 within seconds of being killed by GZ, and that GZ’s voice was captured on the call. ABC reported that the FBI had the tape to enhance to see what GZ was saying. ABC later explained that it was the 911 call of an ear witness that captured the background.

          http://wp.me/p2EUdR-2p

          As I explained in that post, when first hearing that 911 call, other than hearing GZ’s NEN call, the public was unfamiliar with his voice. Subsequently, he took the stand at his bond hearing. Then we heard the jailhouse recordings. That was followed by his Hannity interview and the video on his begging site. GZ’s voice is very distinct from the screams and cries for help. He could not be cursing at Trayvon and screaming for help at the same time.

      • Trayvon Martin shooting: Screams, shots heard on 911 call
        March 17th 2012

        http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-03-17/news/os-trayvon-martin-shooting-911-call-20120316_1_deadly-shooting-shot-man-reports

        The recordings were released after Trayvon’s family spent two hours with city officials, listening to the calls that documented the 17-year-old’s last moments alive.

        “What you hear on that tape is shocking. It’s riveting,” Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon’s family, said after the group emerged from their meeting with officials late Friday.

        Police had previously refused to release the calls. Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood crime watch volunteer, has not been arrested and is not charged with a crime. He claimed the Feb. 26 shooting was in self defense.

        In one of the eight calls, screaming can be heard in the background as a woman tries to get help. The call is punctuated by two loud bangs.

        Martin family attorneys said both were gunfire.

        “You hear a shot, a clear shot, then you hear a 17-year-old boy begging for his life,” said Natalie Jackson, one of the family’s attorneys, “Then you hear a second shot.”

        But three witnesses who have made public statements have been clear that they heard a single shot, and Trayvon was hit in the chest by a single bullet.

        In one of the eight calls, screaming can be heard in the background as a woman tries to get help. That call is punctuated by two gunshots.

        “You hear a shot, a clear shot, then you hear a 17-year-old boy begging for his life,” said Natalie Jackson, another family attorney. “Then you hear a second shot.”

        It was the first time that anyone said two shots were fired that night.

        excerpt

        In one of the 911 calls, placed moments later, a man reports that “they’re wrestling right in the back of my porch. There’s a black guy down. It looks like he’s been shot and he’s dead.”

        Family members would not comment after listening to the tapes.

        “They are overwhelmed by grief at what they heard this evening,” Crump said. “The last seconds of his life were in absolute fear.”

        The boy’s mother could only listen to about half of the recordings, Crump said. His father broke down near the end, Crump said, “and cried like a baby.”

    Fogen is the story of someone who has ONLY privilege going for him, and then when the privilege runs out, he’s fuming mad and the smoke is pouring out his ears because he lost his privilege. That is so childish. When my kid was little, he would play with all the neighbor children. One of them was very bossy and abusive if my kid was at HIS house. When they kids were all in the park together, his kid tried to be bossy and abusive but it didn’t work because they’d just walk away from him and play with someone else. But when that same kid came over to my house, there were always lots of kids because I did day-care. He’d try to be bossy and abusive and I wouldn’t let him and neither would the other kids because they knew the rules; then he’d have a tantrum!

    Fogen got to push people around plenty in his life. But then, there started to be people pushing back. I think probably someone in Virginia really got on his case and he left. Then in Florida he was pushing people around and began to lose some battles and he got fired, got threatened with eviction, got troubles of this and that sort. On 2/26/2012 he was probably in a situation where he couldn’t see the reality of his recent losses of privilege being part of a trend. He was becoming someone who was just like everybody else who wasn’t going to be the “privileged character” any more, who had to toe the line like the next guy, produce like the next guy, take his lumps like the next guy. He didn’t get it. So he killed somebody.

    Then he really thought his privilege was going to carry him past the long arm of the law.

    Think again, [as LLMPapa would add] GENIUS!

      I firmly believe that something pretty substantial happened in VA. Maybe he did run over one of those unsuspecting Mexicans on the sidewalk, so to speak. My P. I. friend is trying to find out as a matter of curiosity. He’s betting the farm on it in fact, and I’d never bet against him. I read somewhere that Fogen stayed with Wolfinger for a time when he first got to FL. as Papi & Mami got there after him.

Even though he’s now out of office, there ought to be bar sanctions for that ethical breach.

    Bingo. If anything the moment word got around, and it always does, that he called the cops on his landlord, that should have been a 60ft tall neon sign that he was trouble and would continue to be such. I mean really? That takes serious brass to say not only am I not giving you the money I owe, but I’m also going to call the cops.

    GZ presumably was at his last job at the time so where was all that money going?
    @
    He had an in with local L E or he indicated he did.
    This was him Modis Operandi be sides calling L E on anyone Black he didnt like the look of ie all of them.

    He called LE on anyone he perceived as threating or nuisance or inconveinanceing him.
    A guy works bar at his non grad party wants paid probaby in cash as opossed rubber check.An foggagge calls LE his buddie cos he can.
    That would intimidate most people.Like the land lord foggagge called LE this person is harraseing me I want him of his property .That he is going to lose as Im squatting an freeloading an stealing money in the form of rent.From this guys pocket.

    And the poloce show up an side with foggagge.
    The poor landlord has got to drive of thinking W T F just happened.

    He after all campagned an activated for the the S P D Cheif of Police to get the job B Lee.An aggited against the incumbant Cheif to lose his job an his penssion

    Nobody has the gall to treat LE as there private body gaurds/mussle unless they have an in with some top brass in the force.
    This idiot probably had a garanteed job an uniform waiting if only he could get a passing grade.

  51. willisnewton says:

    Keep in mind that in addition to describing that Trayvon was afraid of the “creepy guy in the car” that W8, “Dee Dee” also seems to credibly describe the car-to-pedestrian chase that is a very damning element of the case against GZ. This man pursued the teen closely with his motor vehicle causing the youth to run off the motorway, yet the man simply parked, by his own admission on the wrong side of the road facing the wrong way (this “which way was he facing” remains unproven and disputable) and then exited the vehicle to pursue on foot, which he readily admitted to as the incident was happening. So the foot pursuit was only AFTER a vehicular pursuit, one the defendant lied about but will be proven in court to have occurred. It is this initial pursuit that will be so damning to the defendant’s false narrative, and this IMO is why the defense wants so badly to impeach the credibility of W8.

    It’s the INITIAL chase from near the mail kiosk towards the cut thru that GZ went to great lengths to obscure, omit and obfuscate by telling obvious lies to the SPD investigators, even going so far as to mark a map in his own handwriting showing his most likely position before quickly crossing it out while inventing an impossible scenario of the teen “doubling back” (an action he himself performed during said car to pedestrian chase) to circle his car, falsely ascribing the aggression to the unarmed teen.

    This PATTERN of lies – what George did, he blames on the kid, and when in doubt, George leaves it out – can and should be shown to the jury to help explain what likely happened in the “missing minutes” that led up to the physical struggle and intentional shooting death of an unarmed minor.

    Crump if fighting to maintain the credibility of a key witness using the means at his disposal to keep out false attacks on her character and his own because IMO she is able to support the evidence of a car-to-pedestrian chase that proves the bad intent of the defendant – the “profiled and pursued” aspect of the prosecution’s case. However it’s likely the prosecution can prove this car-to-pedestrian chase took place even without the supporting testimony of W8, simply by explaining the deductive reasoning that follows if you ask the vital question, where was GZ and where was Trayvon when GZ had the following exchange:

    Q:He’s by the clubhouse now?
    A: Yeah, now he’s coming towards me.

    The only POSSIBLE place where the timing of a walking human and a car fits the next minute or so of the recording is to place the car at the first bend of TTL, likely facing the mail kiosk,and then to MOVE the car in concert with the pedestrian as he heads to the second bend, and begins to run when chased by the car.

    George himself admits to moving the car during the call, but obfuscates his initial position in an obvious lie in order to omit the car to pedestrian chase. Again, Dee Dee ear-witnessed some of this – their call dropped right about the moment Trayvon ran off the roadway, and she called him back, but the movements and actions can be proven with or without her testimony.

    • ay2z says:

      Fogen was guaranteed to lose Trayvon at the Taaffe corner, had he driven ahead, the dog-leg bend in the road would have not allowed him to key an eye on the direction of travel of his suspect. (Note fogen adds a car backing out, to delay his forward travel along the road, but that isn’t enough to explain him driving ahead of Trayvon).

      This is even more of an impossibility if Trayvon had encountered fogen in the Colonial complex, and as W8 said, Trayvon wasn’t going to run (ie cause him to be chased) but would walk fast, and also that he was going to take a short cut so the guy couldn’t follow. That short cut could have been to cut through at Taaffee’s corner and if Fogen drove over and picked Trayvon up to ‘surveil’ at that point, Trayvon must have been paniced facing that car again when he was in his home complex.

      Given the chance to lose the car again, he would have taken another route over to the other side of he complex, that’s just self-defense that he already said he was doing.

      That must have been terrifying.

      And remember what fogen told Irwin when he asked:

      Irwin: “Why did you try to maintain such close proximity to him?”

      Fogen: “To tell the police where he….. what direction he was headed in.”

      “Where he…???” Why would he say ‘where he [was going] , strange, did Fogen know exactly where this child was headed and when he needed to cut him off?

      If he really thought he was heading out the back entrance to the complex, why would he not drive over to the back gate entrance and wait there to catch the bad guy at the locked gate?

      Something funny about ‘where he’ abruptly changed to ” what direction” he was headed in.

      • Xena says:

        @ay2z

        Fogen was guaranteed to lose Trayvon at the Taaffe corner, had he driven ahead, …

        EXACTLY! Had Trayvon entered that gated community by Taaffe’s with intent on committing a crime, and seeing that he was spotted, he would have turned around and walked out the same way he entered rather than walking towards GZ.

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          Because we’re so advanced today than we were way back when we started, we forget that during the reenactment, we learned, not only how much time GZ had to spend at FT’s to have observed the actions he recounted there. But we also forget that GZ claims that, when he drove over and parked at the clubhouse, no sooner than he parked there, here comes Trayvon walking towards him.

          When one looks at the map and measures the distances involved, one discovers that while its a 15 second drive for GZ, from FT’s place to the clubhouse where he parked, it’s a 1 minute 20 second walk for Trayvon. So, for Trayvon to just walk up, within 5 seconds of GZ parking there as he says, Trayvon has to walk at somewhere near 20 to 30 mph. That’s some pretty darn fast walking wouldn’t you say? Begs the question why GZ didn’t think Trayvon wasn’t an athlete eh? 😆

          • Xena says:

            @Lonnie Starr

            Begs the question why GZ didn’t think Trayvon wasn’t an athlete eh? 😆

            I wonder how many aspirins and antacids O’Mara has taken while watching the clubhouse videos? He won’t know what the State knows about them until they present their expert at trial, yet no expert the defense hires will be able to see those videos to agree with GZ’s story.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            The work of analyzing those cctv’s is tedious and boring. It take great dedication because it took Tchoupi. Whonoze and Amsterdam (I think) a week of 16 hour days to accomplish. I was on the bcclist when they were doing the work. IIRC they treated us to a synopsis of just how tedious the work was, they had to go back and forth over 30 hours of video to ascertain the time and tease out other events. So the work was no joke.

            I doubt MOM is going to find experts of similar dedication, especially with what little money he has budgeted. 3 to 6 thousand dollars isn’t going to buy 7 16 hour days for sure, less the tedium of recursively viewing 30 hours of videos. They’ll probably take his money and hand him renamed copies of tchoupi’s work.

          • Xena says:

            @Lonnie Starr. Before I saw the work of who I term “The Whonoze crew,” I saw Trent Sawyer’s videos. It helped to be able to see the lighting changes, distinguishing headlights, side lights on vehicles, etc. Trent was the first to realize that the CCTV vids were off by 20 minutes. Once I became accustomed to what I was seeing, the video by the Whonoze crew was easily understandable and outstanding.

            They’ll probably take his money and hand him renamed copies of tchoupi’s work.

            The only question that O’Mara has in GZ’s defense is, “Are you for certain that the car lights in the videos are that of the defendant’s?” Then on cross, BDLR has the question, “To the best of your knowledge, were there any other vehicles on those streets during the time that the defendant called NEN?”

      • Two sides to a story says:

        That’s obvious. He wouldn’t “escape” by heading toward the back gate.

      • ay2z says:

        Good point, I was thinking of Trayvon only as getting home, not as a criminal scenario, and of course, that’s what fogen profiled him as, a criminal.

        But whichever way, fogen’s own words mean he was not about to loose sight of him, following, not leading, and staying at close proximity once he was on his home NW turf.Have to wonder,

        Have to wonder though, if fogen knew where Trayvon was staying, and new where he would be headed once he had fogen on his tail.

      • amsterdam1234 says:

        It doesn’t fit time wise, and it doesn’t fit what can be seen in the clubhouse video’s.

        We have no evidence about Trayvon’s path from the 7 eleven to RATL, but unless GZ never was on TTL and another person was trolling the mail area at RATL at the time of the nen call,
        Trayvon was at the mail area, and GZ was stalking and following him from the mail area towards the cut-through at the time of the nen call.

  54. Windermere officer arrested in racial profiling probe

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-windermere-police-racial-profiling-20130412,0,4375715.story

    A Windermere police officer has been arrested related to a racial profiling investigation and another officer has been suspended without pay pending an internal investigation, Windermere Chief David Ogden said.

    Windermere Police Officer Jason Darnell was arrested on felony charges of official misconduct and threatening a public servant during an investigation of race-based profiling, authorities reported this morning.

    Police say they have four victims who were stopped in racially biased traffic stops within Windermere town limits. All were minority motorists and all were stopped but never ticketed or arrested, authorities said. They would not give details about the investigation, which is ongoing.

    But Ogden and Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said they suspect there might be other victims who have not come forward.

    “I want the residents of Windermere to know this ends practices that are unacceptable and will not be tolerated under any circumstances,” Ogden said.

      • lurker says:

        Make that the vast majority who are arrested and tried. And it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more police stop black people on the assumption that they are likely to be involved with drugs, the more the official data will bear out that drug involvement is disproportionately black.

        bill, i do my best to leave politics at the door when i come here, but i do remember that you are one of our few resident conservatives.

        i know your statement above to be true, not because of my race, but because of my education and study of white privilege. in my experience, i find few conservatives who do know the truth behind incarceration statistics. we likely both know that minorities have a disproportional access to legal remedy than do most whites, largely due to a variety of social situations which keep minorities earning power on the lower end of the spectrum.

        so many of other sites that discuss this case have racists (a large percent of them conservative) coming out of the woodwork to use the ‘black kid is thug because look at incarceration rates’ argument, which i am sure you would have to disagree.

        all i ask is that you scream it loud and proud among your conservative brethren, please. the situation, on the whole, socially speaking, is not likely to improve any time soon, until as a society we can all acknowledge the simple, basic truth you stated above, which distilled, affirms that institutional racism is alive and well in this country.

      • Bill Taylor says:

        LOL, i gotta tell the truth, conservatives dont get along with me much at all, because i deal in reality and truth, NOT from the left or right “side” i side with truth and accurate information, and MANY conservatives dont like that at all.

    Statement from Trayvon Martin’s Family and their Attorneys

    One year ago today, the State of Florida decided that there was evidence to charge George Zimmerman for second-degree murder for profiling, pursuing, and killing our unarmed teenage son. The facts of this case are simple and straightforward. We are confident that a jury following the overwhelming evidence against George Zimmerman will hold him accountable for killing our son, Trayvon Martin.

    For the Zimmerman family to allege that the justice system doesn’t work, simply because they are unhappy their son was arrested in the first place, is disingenuous and disrespectful to the very system that is currently affording him every available opportunity to defend himself. The arrest of an admitted killer is not a violation of due process, it is due process. Most will agree that no one has been given greater consideration by the justice system for killing an unarmed child, than George Zimmerman.

    We continue to pray that our son’s death will serve as a catalyst in preventing other senseless acts of gun violence.

    I by the way would defend every American against the image of America projected in the letter of Grace Zimmerman. It is simply a much too big country to consist only of these type of self-proclaimed upright and religious Americans, which one could call more easily bigots. They exist everywhere. One of the basics of America are equal rights, and just as her son has them, Trayvon had them too. And now his family has every right to demand justice for Trayvon. It’s NOT American to avoid responsibility for your actions. At least I have never heard about the American avoidance of responsibility myth. Maybe Grace can elaborate, what makes that specifically American?

    Great article. Unfortunately, I think that O’Mara is setting a terrible precedent. I think that the lawyers who would legitimately be described as “shysters” will follow this playbook for years to come. There doesn’t appear to be any mechanism to stop them. The public begging, clear lack of “good faith” statements/filings on the part on the defense, defamation of the victim via large audience targeted media and the repetitive false narratives also perpetuated via large audience targeted media, combined with a nothing to lose (no sanctions) outlook is a recipe for a relatively fast degeneration of the justice system, as we know it.

      (That’s not to suggest that co-mingling of settlement funds and operational funds at law firms is anything new.)

      • Nef05 says:

        Indeed. I hope they view it as a challenge, as Ben, Bruce (and I’d add BDLR), seem to have done.

      • lurker says:

        I agree with Nef05. BDLR has also been courageous in naming the living room elephants. If O’Mara wants to use the filing of motions in order to publicize things that he cannot get on the record as evidence during trial, he can at least expect to be called out on it.

      Fits his client though, as he too, was trying to set a precedent of killing his intruders by using a law twisted to meet his lies.

      • ic2fools says:

        @a72z, I find that terrifying and reading the momentum of those supporters. Has me in fear I may have to Stand My Ground one day against one of those supporters.

      • Nef05 says:

        Absolutely. And, I still believe that his supporters couldn’t care less about him and are far more interested in him getting acquitted for something they fantasize about being able to do themselves (and get away with).

    • SearchingMind says:

      Oh no, Nef and and Trained Observer, I have to disagree this time. The only ones who have set precedents in this case are (a) Blackswell (that guy is just as erudite as it can get in his writings and is a terrific orator), (b) BDLR (remember his Epic Smack Down of O’Mara? That happens just once in a while – if ever). O’Mara has no respect among his peers, no following. Only O’Mara’s kind (the mediocre) will follow him down the gutter with his gutter-lawyering. I am more than disgusted by his disgraceful attitude towards Mr. Crump (who has taken the high moral ground and prudently chose not to respond in kind – not even in the form of ethics complaint), and his intimidation/harassment of witnesses, among whom W9, W8, Trayvon’s parents, etc.

        I whole heartedly agree with you! Omar is a sheet closer to wearing the ‘White Robe’. I do declare he writes those Motions while wearing one.

      • Nef05 says:

        Ahhh, perfectly understandable. I should have used another word. I wasn’t using precedent in it’s legal sense, I was using it in the much more general sense of creating a pattern to be followed. You call it “gutter-lawyering”, I call ’em “shysters” – either way, we’re on the same page. 🙂

      • Trained Observer says:

        Definitely, as Nef sez, “we’re on the same page.”

    • Lonnie Starr says:

      I don’t think so, look, we can’t always rely on the ethics boards to straighten things out for us. If our legal system is to survive, we the people have to learn to become enamored of truth and learn to think critically to determine it for ourselves. If tomfoolery is to rule then so be it. But, we need to have faith that it won’t gain the upper hand for long, because it is empty, has little to offer and cannot offer persistent success.

      We learn to think better when we learn that poor thinking leads to failure! That’s a lesson that the non-liberals need to learn.

        So maybe tronie is a lawyer, because you just described him as well…………..just sayin’

      • Nef05 says:

        Would that it were so. Critical thinking skills seem to be dropping at an alarming rate, just from my anecdotal experience. I offer *abstinence only* sex ed for teens and pro-lifers arguments against contraception, as examples (taking no position on either topic for the purposes of this blog).

        We learn to think better when we learn that poor thinking leads to failure!

        Absolutely! But, then you run smack dab into the Dunning-Kruger effect, and well, there you go…

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          Yes, well I’m at a stage where I’m regaining some confidence, realizing that not everyone around me has an equivalent or better level of competence. For quite some time I’ve always been mesmerized by how smart everyone in the world seemed to be but me. But, given that, I could not understand why they couldn’t see the obvious coming and took to calling me prescient for saying so.

          Now I’m realizing that there are a whole slew of people who aren’t competent enough to realize that the sky will be blue if the clouds go away. How these people manage to dress themselves in the morning is nothing short of being one of life’s great mysteries. 😆

      • lurker says:

        Following Nef offtrack for the fun of it (and I hope I am embedding this correctly).

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          If people are unable to think critically they are unable to understand why what gohmert says makes no sense. Without some means of establishing a reference point, where one can figure out how and/or why any limits at all will or could be set, then they can’t see that it’s silly to say that lifting or imposing a limit on one thing, means that limits on other things will have to be lifted or imposed, as well.

          Once, however, someone punctures his bubble by showing that speed limits were changed from 70 to 55 and back to 70 again, without affecting either gay marriages or how many bullets a magazine can hold… Well, people will begin to look at Gohmert as a candidate for the looney bin. Those who don’t, however, are probably candidates themselves.

      • Nef05 says:

        Oh geez, Lurker – no you didn’t go THERE! LMAO! Perfect example! 😀

    • Cercando Luce says:

      Prof explained that the only circumstances causing the Bar Association to take action is if Attorney steals client’s money, or if Attorney has sex with client.

      But you are right.

      • Nef05 says:

        I remember that. I wonder if they may become motivated to change that, in their own self-interest, for the good of the profession? I’m just thinking that for ethical professionals with integrity, who take pride in their profession, are as outraged as some of us laypersons. The Professor’s revulsion and disgust with O’Mara’s tactics are palpable, and I can’t believe he’s the only one. I got the feeling Judges Lester and Nelson weren’t too happy, either. But, that’s pure speculation on my part, since they would never publicly say such a thing. I just hope those in a position to do something about it are equally disgusted.

      • Malisha says:

        “if attorney has sex with client” — and the client doesn’t like it.

        “if attorney steals client’s money” — and the client is rich enough to do something about it.

        Otherwise, those bar associations are worse than “a joke”; a joke is funny. Those bar associations are outright frauds.
