    I believe the young male witness, Austin, might have seen the confessed murderer slip and fall on the sidewalk while chasing Trayvon.

  2. Sabrina B. says:

    MOM and West remind me of those people that get caught doing something wrong, so they blow almost ANY other thing out of proportion, to take away from what they got caught doing.

  3. You all have thoughtful comments says:

    Interesting article as far as other states having a sliding scale of self defense:

    I heard that the animation was shown on some news story last night but I can’t find a way to get it. Does anybody have a link?

  5. Sophia33 says:

    Oh the anticipation.

    • chi1224 says:

      I know right. I’m on pins and needles! The judge better say NO, NO, and NO to all this crazy shit they are trying to get it, I also think West should be fined for contempt for his ridiculous behavior in court.

  6. chi1224 says:

    HELP! None of my feeds are working!! Does anyone have one that is working??

    After a contentious end to the animation reenactment hearing last night, Judge Nelson pushed court’s start time back to 9am. #Zimmermanon9

  8. Sabrina B. says:

    Good mornining everyone! Ready for the smackdown!

  9. chi1224 says:

    My NBC link says “video concluded”…. ?? Anybody got a good link? I don’t want to miss a second of this smack down!

  10. Good morning. Where is a live feed of the 8am court session? I have coffee and am ready for the fireworks. Cannot find the feed.

  11. chi1224 says:

    Good morning to everyone!! I feel like I just left you guys, LOL
    Blueberry coffee going down nice, getting ready for the BIG SMACK-DOWN….. Hoodies Up!!! β™₯

    Oh man wish I was not going to have to miss most of this day in court but the hoodie is up……….

      Hoodies up!

      Justice for Trayvon!

    Why again did Ofc. Wagner need the residents to identify gz when gz had id on him?

    • You all have thoughtful comments says:

      https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.axiomamnesia.com%2FTrayvonMartinFiles%2FTrayvon-Martin-George-Zimmerman-FULL-case-report-documents.pdf&docid=5cc29b84827cd9fe1ce0db265d972591&a=bi&pagenumber=18&w=524

      In his report Ofc Wagner writes that he took a picture of Trayvon’s head and a picture of gz in Smith’s patrol car, and, yet, does not write that he DID show those pictures to the residents which he actually did.

      I wonder why he left that out of his report.

      • boyd says:

        I don’t know. This case in crazy. Did you hear that Eloise whatever say I’ve seen the kid walking around before.

        so much for the strange person.

        seems like Fogen is untouchable.

        for the first time in my life I may get a weapon to protect my self if they allow this crap. This it’s okay to follow , also get out the car and follow, armed, and if a fights breaks out you’re guilty not the stalker. What happened to the country I grew up in.

      • Malisha says:

        I will bet that they showed Fogen’s picture around that night specifically so they could elicit which witnesses were going to say good things about him. THEN they would have a list of witnesses to interview for the next few days so that they could say there was “no evidence to contradict” Fogen’s self-defense story. If, that night, a neighbor saw the picture and either said, “I don’t know him” or “I think that’s the crazy guy who runs around here with a gun chasing Blacks” or “Oh yeah, he’s trouble, I knew he would kill somebody one of these days,” then they would leave his or her name off the list.

        • You all have thoughtful comments says:

          I wonder if W6 saw that picture of gz’s bloody face and if it influenced his first interview even though all he had seen was a tussling and wrestling.

  14. Nef05 says:

    What fresh hell is this @ 6:30am? Brids aren’t even up yet. Speaking of fresh hell- that HLN reporter, Jean Casaverez or something, is on my last nerve.

    How do you spin everything as posivive for fogen, EVEN when he;s caught in TWO lies by his own experts…. Can you start a petition on the 4th estate for flat out lying????

    • You all have thoughtful comments says:

      Good morning, Nef.

      Oh, the media. What can I say.

      So I guess you get the first chirp of the day where you live.

      Quite the night court, I see.

  15. crazy1946 says:

    Just a little possibly important back ground information on Dr. Di Maio.

    http://www.theforensicexaminer.com/archive/spring09/14/

    Please take careful note of the first case that is listed. This problem occurred during Di Maio’s tenure at the Bexar County (San Antonio, Tx) Medical Examiners office. I am still digging and suspect that it is very possible that he will be in some way tied to this noted problem.

    Now something else to look at, and I will need a little help with this from someone in the area of Sanford or near by. It was noted early on that the Fogdoit was a registered Democrat so he could not possibly be a racist, do y’all remember that? Now comes Donnolly and his wife claiming that the Fogdoit worked with them in a campaign, for those of you that were involved in the political process in 2007-8 will recall, the GOP (TP?) was known to have suggested people change parties to vote in the primaries to prevent Mz. Clinton winning the nomination, now where I need help, can anyone in the area gain any knowledge as to what campaign Donnolly and his wife were involved in/with in that time frame? My suspicion is that the financial backing for the defense is actually coming from a political source ie. a PAC from the Tea Party. if this could be determined, it would be a major blow to the credibility of the defense members of the Fogdoits legal team….

  16. vickie s. votaw says:

    One thing that really bugs me is MOM’s constant referring to the Spanish lady’s “prancing” around the courtroom. He is the one who requested her to “prance”. Just pisses me off!

  17. EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

    I strongly believe his excessive weight gain was deliberate so these experts can say he was too big to fight. GZ wasn’t this fat when Trayvon was killed. Nancy Grace laid out how many calories he consume daily. 10,000 daily. She believes it was a strategy for the defense. These are some lawyers!

    • type1juve says:

      I believe that too. Everything this defense team does is scripted and with a purpose. Fogen looked like a menacing skinhead the night he murdered Trayvon, now he’s “Georgie” the Pillsbury doughboy. Nah, I’m not buying it.

  18. jodiwankanobi says:

    wow so JN caught the defense out on John G. Wow good for you Judge Nelson.

  19. EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

    What gets me Geroge Z got out of his vehicle and ran the boy down.. All of these media whores are backing this criminal guess money speaks. Most of these media whores were backing Trayvon when it was big news almost every one of them are changing. Money talks….

  20. ladystclaire says:

    Didn’t they already hash out the contents of Trayvon’s cell phone? What the hell about Fogen’s phone and, what’s contained in it, as well as his text and emails? this is really wrong, for the defense to keep trying to put the victim in this case on trial. UNSEAL FOGEN’S SHIT because his is the only correspondence that really matters here and, yet it’s under protected seal.

    What is in those protected correspondence, that is so incriminating to the defendant, that they remain sealed in the face of Florida’s sunshine laws? what ever was on Trayvon’s phone, should remain out of the public’s view more so than that of HIS MURDERER.

    Fogen does NOT have a right, to make public anything regarding this kid’s cell phone. I guess the Conservative Shit House, is still calling the shots for the defense. the prosecution needs to stop being so damn soft in respect to Fogen’s privacy because, the defense has not given the same consideration to Trayvon Benjamin Martin, THE VICTIM.

    • EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

      I’ve never heard of anything like this before. GZ entire life is concealed.. just mind blowing… They are not going to find him guilty… And speaking with a group of law enforcement associates they said the DA isn’t trying to fight as they should. The order came down to do minimum and get him off… This is awful… Land of the free if you are wealthy with connections.

      GZ is a child molester, stalker and attacks cops why isn’t this in it goes towards his character… Unbelievable…

  21. fauxmccoy says:

    quote from the husband upon watching west’s melt down

    ‘oh, poor skeletor — he’s working himself to the bone!’
    love it!

  22. Lynn says:

    Question about Donnelly. There is no denying he broke the rule of sequestration. He’s sitting there on day 2 and 3 in the videos upthread. I read this bit from The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law:
    “In the event a witness violates sequestration, the
    court has a variety of sanctions available. The most
    extreme remedy is disqualification of the witness.
    The witness may be held in contempt, by reason of
    his conduct, and his testimony is open to comment
    to the jury; but, be it under the permissive or mandatory rule, sanctions in the event of a violation of a
    sequestration order are not obligatory.”

    What I’m wondering is anything else going to happen to him? Could they get him on perjury?
    Hanging out in the courtroom everyday is one thing.
    Hanging out everyday hearing the Lauer 911 call over and over then come and testify that you hadn’t heard it until Saturday for the very first time is another.
    Being an attorney and doing this even worse.
    But claiming you’re an expert and waving your veteran status telling your heart wrenching war stories about knowing screams of near death while lying your ass off is LOW, LOW, LOW.

    • jodiwankanobi says:

      yes exactly, and making a point that he deliberately did not engage in any conversation or watch the news specifically because he was a witness……but i personally think it is the defense team that needs to have their asses kicked. They tried to get away with it, they should know better. Throw the book at them!

  23. aussie says:

    Professor, I am afraid you were mistaken when you said a trial “ebbs and flows”.

    It is a roller coaster ride. But instead of normal carriages it uses the Ghost Train and sometimes snakes into the dark Tunnel of Love as well. We have a few people here who scream every time it goes into the top loop. But the only thing to ever fall out is GZ’s defence. Totally panicked and shattered.

    JN lost it a bit tonight. She let them go one inch too far, trying to ensure no chance of an appeal, and they took a mile. Each. For that in the morning she will give them written decisions stopping everything.
    * no animation cartoon
    * no Trayvon’s phone texts or images (again)
    * Donnelly, the video twitchy guy, Di Maio, John G and maybe one other witness in trouble for ignoring the sequestration and/or perjury.

    Defence will waste all day.

    State will bring very few rebuttal witnesses.

    Closing on Friday, after defence cries they had no time to prepare.

    Idiots. You start by pencilling in the closing you want to do, and backfill with the necessary evidence. The opening was a cut-down version of the closing. Except prosecution has backfilled theirs, defence has only helped the prosecution.

    They had a better chance of winning by not calling witnesses at all, because prosecution had left a lot of loose ends (knowing they WILL get more chances when the defence DOES call witnesses).

    I wonder if they won’t put on GZ in the end, after all. In which case prosecution will just cross examine and not call anyone else themselves.

  24. My Forehead Tho says:

    I think I’m safe in assuming that West will no longer be an attorney after this trial.

    I think I’m also safe in assuming O’Mara and West have a lot to gain from Zimmerman getting acquitted, which is why they’re doing a lot of unethical things to make that happen. Besides the obvious Johnny Cochran comparison, they also potentially have a 7 figure reward waiting for them with their suit against NBC and whoever else.

    • looolooo says:

      I sure as hell hope that NBC won’t fork over one red cent to that maniacal band of sub-human excrement!

      fogen has got to be convicted. I’m afraid of what Tracey may do if he’s not. I just get a feeling that Tracey is willing to sacrifice himself in order to avenge his beloved son. fogen MUST go to prison.

      • elle says:

        Tracey is too smart to let fogen mess with his life anymore. He has loved ones who he will not let be hurt further. He will keep his nose clean, so he is around to shield his loved ones. He did not see fogen coming, but he sees him now.

    • roderick2012 says:

      I think I’m safe in assuming that West will no longer be an attorney after this trial.

      If George is acquitted and the feds file charges against George then West will definitely represent him because West has experience with federal cases and I believe that was the main reason that O’Mara added him in the first place–O’Mara realized shortly after he began representing George last year that the feds were serious about filing charges against George depending on the outcome of the State trial.

  25. RobertSF says:

    The animation is a synthesis of witness testimony in court, witness statements out of course, and “consultation” with the lawyers. There are several problems with the attempt to introduce it as evidence.

    1.- It’s testimony that cannot be cross-examined.
    2.- It draws conclusions for the jury.
    3.- What lawyers say is not evidence.

    That witness statements were improperly obtained is just icing on the cake. Those three things should make the decision not to allow the animation as evidence a slam dunk.

    If the defendant wishes to tell his story, he needs to tell it from the witness box, not from behind a video projector.

    If the defense wishes to use the animation in its closing statements, that should be ok. Nothing the lawyers say is evidence.

    • RobertSF says:

      I meant, “witness statements out of court,” not “course.”

    • groans says:

      If the defendant wishes to tell his story, he needs to tell it from the witness box, not from behind a video projector.

      That’s really what this is all about. Great points throughout, also!

  26. Judy A Vallejos says:

    holy crap!!!!

    the Judge is PISSED!!!! BIG TIME!!!!

    oh oh I cant wait for the sun to come up LOL

    I was just able to watch the exchange between westerfool and o imso dumb with her before she walked out of the court room this evening

    thank you so much for posting that video smokeegrl that WAS AWESOME TO SEE

    im giddy for the morning LOL

  27. ay2z says:

    Compare West here, as he begins his opening. Watch carefully as he completes saying “… the evidence WILL show..’

    Look at his expression turn to a big grin. Completely out of sych with what he has just said in his first few words about this being a ‘sad case’. He’s laughing about his upcoming joke, while saying it’s all a sad case.

    Interesting contrast to his behaviour at 9:45 PM Court time.

  28. Woow! says:

    If you are a Mark O’Mara intern I would not list working for O’Mara on your resume. You will commit professional suicide before you even had a start at your career.

    If you are a Treehouse member lurking, tell O’Mara that he looks stupid arguing points from bigoted uneducated bloggers such as yourselves. Thanks for helping your black white hispanic friend George convicted. Do you people even like hispanics. Oh I forgot white logic, the one drop rule. One drop of white blood and George is white.

    If you think West was great this evening then you are dumber than a dodo bird because that man could not even recite case law to backup the shit that was escaping from his mouth. O’Mara and West has been blowing so much shit for the duration of the trial that they have blown their butt holes and the crap is free flowing from their mouths.

    Thank you for being bigots. Your hatred and superiority complex in thinking you know the law by running George’s defense (it is obvious O’Mara takes his order from those that hold the purse strings) is what is going to ensure he is convicted.

    Oh didn’t you just love how O’Mara back down to Mr. Boneparte. I guess it is true what they say about bully’s, they only pick on peope they presume are week. Just as George would not have approached a full grown black man, we say O’Mara bow down to Boneparte.

    As the teens today would say, O’Mara was a bitch as nigga>>>:)

    It is good to know your George will soon be know as Gina, Georgeta, or Ginger. I hope that bastard is rape by thick d*(^% and tear his a-hole a new one.

    • EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

      Wow!! LOL!! Maybe people are starting to see why I say what I did about this entire case… Completely racist and bigoted from the beginning. They are playing the race card and scaring the prosecution off from it.. Sick MOM and WEST.

    • Mary says:

      are you at all aware that you are advocating for rape?

      • EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

        I think not I am advocating to stop these bigots and racist from doing this crap in a court room. Disrespecting this judge was unacceptable just for the position she holds…

        If Zimmerman goes to jail I can’t control what is done to him. If he would have kept his behind in the car none of us would be hurting for this Martin family…

        • Mary says:

          rape is rape. and it should be condemned where ever and to who ever it occurs. the cynical and may i also say, very ugly and almost celebratory expression of vengeance that the convicted will be raped in prison, as either a part of the ‘punishment’, or as retribution, or as justly deserved, or as something that can’t be avoided, is advocating rape.

          you stated that you hoped he would be raped, and that is appalling. you were in fact advocating for rape, you were condoning rape. and that is utterly reprehensible.

  29. groans says:

    Something to consider regarding some discussion above about JN’s “taking back control of her courtroom”:

    JN entertained that cartoon nonsense for FIVE HOURS today, and still could not make a decision about it.

    And then she allowed West to carry on for TWO HOURS – beginning at 8 p.m. (!) – about a settled phone data issue, after she told West that she needed only limited information. But she did not enforce her own instruction. And, again, she could not make a decision about this issue tonight, either.

    And THEN she left in a huff, herself, tonight. I feel for her, but that did not demonstrate control of her courtroom. She was basically badgered out of her own courtroom because she was not in control of it.

    (Also, don’t forget her allowing West to cross-examine Rachel – who had rather limited, though important knowledge about 2/26/12 – for FIVE HOURS.)

    What happened at the end of tonight should not happen in a court of law, and the judge bears considerable responsibility for allowing it to get to the point that it did. Reminded me of Judge Lester, in fact.

    JN has powers available to her to control her courtroom, but she has been unwilling or afraid to use them. And, so, tonight’s fiasco was foreseeable, when you think about it.

    So, JN’s got a long way to go before I can agree that she’s “in control” of her courtroom anywhere close to how I’ve seen judges control their courtrooms.

    I’m not criticizing her, and I strongly agree that JN has many strengths. But, based on what I’ve observed in this case, courtroom control has not been among her demonstrated strengths.*

    And as funny as I found the final proceedings this evening to be, ultimately it saddens me. It’s a sad night for the dignity of courts of law.

    _______________
    * Just sayin’…. And it doesn’t mean I don’t love her, don’t love y’all, or have “lost faith” in anything.

    • Judy A Vallejos says:

      i agree with you

    • when you put it that way * she was badgered out of her own court room* that really sucks.

      I hope she takes steps to have both omar and west reprimanded for this kind of behavior. I’ve never seen a lawyer whine like that except maybe on TV.
      have any of you guys??
      and if so does anyone know is this could cause issues bringing this trial to jury and conviction?

    • type1juve says:

      I have to agree with you on this. The defense has been given far too many chances to show their asses in court without reprimand. Tonight was a result of them not being reined in earlier.

    • Jun says:

      Omara and West are a handful for anyone

      I think the saying is “piece of work”

      She’s constantly being disrespected by the defense lawyers and they never listen to her or respect her

      In a more just world, someone would backhand both the defense lawyers, tell them STFU, and then that would be that

      The thing with Omara and West is they are like terrible used car salesman and they play games with the appellate court and play games with sanctions and whine and lie

      They are not reasonable people

      You see the nonsense that happened to Lester?

      I think she just needs a good rest and tomorrow she will be ready to kick ass

      Omara and West are really disrespectful people

      • EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

        Someone brought and interesting observation concerning MOM and West. I was speaking with a former 35 year teacher, she was asked her opinion about them disrespecting her? Amazing she felt the judge is not pretty and men in this area tend to respect pretty women. I never analyzed lawyers respecting older accomplished women.. Judges now are pretty girls and she does appear to be plane but accomplished. This is and interesting point of view from a teacher whom is married to a retired lawyer… Shocking these men are too disrespectful and tends to look down on her….

  30. Woow! says:

    I just lost a few brain cells venturing into hell to see what the devil and his minions were up to.

    They all seem to think W was awesome stickup for poor CAC with that biased judge.

    There was also talk of his website being shut down. They ramble so much and I couldn’t tell what he was talking about but someone was telling him to start another under new name. There was reference to the DOJ.

    God I hope the DOJ lock that fool up.

  31. Woow! says:

    Taken from you know where:

    GO WEST ! The Video Which EVERYONE Should Watch !!

    I’m evaluating how much we can reasonably share and cite without compromising people and structures which could be placed at risk.

    What the hell?

    • ay2z says:

      LOL, that was quite a little scene. MOM held it for a while, but once the judge stepped down and West kept ranting, he tried to shut him up.

  32. KittySP says:

    I’m deeply angered at GZs actions toward Trayvon the night of 2/26/2012. Several common sense issues concern me greatly and feel they are worth noting and if I were on the jury, would like answers to.

    Why didn’t Trayvon run after JG stepped out and said he was calling the cops? Does it make sense he’d continue to beat up on ‘Georgie’?

    In one of his video statements he ‘over emphasizes’ that he didn’t fight back but says he was defending himself and demonstrates he’s using arms to shield from attack. Why no blood or defensive wounds to his hands, blood on the sleeves of his jacket, if nose was bleeding from sucker punch?

    Why no other bruises to his face, swollen black eyes, busted lip, if he was getting 25-30 MMA punches about the face and head?

    First responders on the scene within mins…no mention of blood on Trayvon’s hands when attempted life saving procedures. So why are the defense, and so called media contributors trying to apply ‘selective’ reasoning when it comes to DNA and forensic? They sound #REAL RETARDED…#HLN contributors, #Zimmerman Defense

    • Woow! says:

      Invisible punches leave invisible bruises.

    • TM was being restrained, that’s why he didn’t run!

      when *john* said he was calling the police ( if that is what he really said ) and Trayvon heard and saw him, THEN Trayvon begged John for help and instead of helping that boy he left him out there with that animal to be killed!

      gz said he asked john not to call police but to come and help him *restrain this guy*
      gz says no one came out to help! but clearly they spoke bc both are saying they did but they aren’t saying the same things.

      and you are right to be concerned about what happened to TM! GZ didn’t get beat up by Trayvon. Trayvon got restrained before he was shot down like an animal with all kinds of ppl listening as he begged and screamed for help. there’s no reason to believe TM was staying there to finish attempting to murder that idiot because he had no motive and there’s no evidence of anything like that other than the statements gz want ppl to believe.

    • roderick2012 says:

      “Why didn’t Trayvon run after JG stepped out and said he was calling the cops? Does it make sense he’d continue to beat up on β€˜Georgie’?”

      By the time John saw George and Trayvon both were standing and George was holding Trayvon at gunpoint.

      John flipped the roles. John saw George in control and possibly restraining Trayvon and when John came out Trayvon attempted to use the interruption to get out of George’s grasp and when he realized he couldn’t that’s when Trayvon began begging for help.

      Furthermore John stated that he only saw ten seconds of the event then he turned to call 911.

      John’s story is conflicted because he knows that logically he should have seen George shoot Trayvon so he attempted to move his timeline backwards so he could claim that he didn’t witness the fatal gunshot but witnessed Trayvon in control but it would have taken something from a Hollywood script for George to have gained control on Trayvon from a mounted position and gotten his gun and shot Trayvon between 5 and 15 seconds.

      • Eric says:

        Very good Rod, I think you are exactly right. I also believe Jon G didn’t go back into the house until he saw the gun. That’s when he ran and called 911.

        • roderick2012 says:

          Eric, I should correct myself.

          I believe that John saw the entire thing because someone produced a timeline of the 911 calls and IIRC John’s call was last and about a full minute after the first one.

          There is no telling what type of threats George made against John before he called 911 or maybe proffered the MMA bs before the cops arrived.

      • Tzar says:

        so basically -as I have been saying all along-JOHN IS LYING HIS ASS OFF

        • roderick2012 says:

          Tzar, I became suspicious of John when he started using approximate times just like George-attempting to fit the events into a timeline.

          I have been in situations where time seemed to stand still and I would never attempt to guess how long it took something to occur because everything is a blur.

          • Tzar says:

            he connected to the police after the shot
            I believe that he was out there

          • roderick2012 says:

            I believe that he was out there

            Just like Jeremy and probably Jenna.

            How can human beings watch an innocent child be killed by a blood thirsty fruit loop and then lie about it.

            The more I watch this trial the more I lose hope in humanity.

          • Tzar says:

            They are assholes
            they’ve been assholes
            they live as assholes as evidenced by their readiness to behave as assholes in a circumstance that would stun and sober the average person out of their accidental or amateur assholeness
            anyone of us can start living as assholes
            by the habits, beliefs and company that we keep
            the worst part is that the first rule of being an asshole is not realizing nor acknowledging that you are an asshole.

    Can I blog now?

    • willisnewton says:

      Gbrbsb, you may see Major Major whenever he is not in.

      • gbrbsb says:

        Oh willis, same problem this morning I can’t post either here or on whonoze, but I am still able to post on Xena’s who took me out of her spam yesterday so it seems she did something right the others haven’t

        Sorry to ask (am asking anyone I have a reply button for) could you post PL, who seems to be around today, and whonoze, and ask them to take me out of their spam pile, i.e. accept or approve my comments, and if they are not sure how to, to ask Xena who’s technique seems to have worked.

        Otherwise I have to keep bothering you all which I don’t want to, but am DESPERATE!

      • gbrbsb says:

        BTW, didn’t get the Major Major bit… I must be missing something !

      • gbrbsb says:

        willis, could you and the others please post whonoze a few times and ask him on my behalf if he could check his spam and fish me out or my other id gbrbsbblogs.

        Nothing has worked and I’m running out of time… the last days of trial and it’s lonely with nowhere to post !

        I’ve given up at the lounge. I sent a string of donations via paypal yesterday all with a message asking PL to fish me out but I think he and Crane are away.

    • ay2z says:

      LOL!! Sure!! You are a bit early for day 21 (is it?) in court. Just keep the coffee pot on, and the kettle for tea filled until it’s time for everyone else to roll on in.

      Just checked, it’s 5:40 AM for you now! Tomorrow will come early for us other-coasters, with court starting at 5 AM.

      • gbrbsb says:

        Lol, ay2z, I was asking because my posts are getting flagged as spam these last 2 days and I’ve been trying contact the professor. Yesterday at this time it worked too and then come trial time… muzzled, I felt positively muzzled. Fingers crossed it won’t happen again later but I’m off to bed now for a few hours at least before the fray!

        • ay2z says:

          Glad you got in!! See you on the light side! I will have to set my alarm again, been waking up before 6 am easily, but 5 isn’t quite light enough to let daybreak do the waking.

          • gbrbsb says:

            @ay2z
            Posts fine last night but can’t post again this morning PLEASE PLEASE SOMEONE EVERYONE HELP. PL is here today so please post him and any other bloggers that can to see if he can get me out of his spam so that my posts register on the blog.

            Xena knows how to do it because she did it yesterday and I can still post on her blog today

            PLEASE I AM DESPERATE

    • gbrbsb says:

      Is this a lasting treasure,
      Or just a moment’s pleasure,
      Can I believe the magic in your eyes,
      Will you still love me tomorrow?

      Whoopie… I’m apparently back… for now at least but as the same happened yesterday I will reserve judgment. Night night all, see ya… or not at trial time.

    • fauxmccoy says:

      @gbrbsb — i see you! come on in!

      • gbrbsb says:

        Faux, professor is around today… I was in but once again this morning I can’t post here or on whonoze’s. I can still post on Xena’s so she did whatever she did right. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get everyone you can posting to the professor and sort this otherwise I just have to keep bugging everyone.

        • fauxmccoy says:

          damn! will do my best!

          • gbrbsb says:

            If everyone posts him or Crane if she makes a comment today. Or at least if PL has banned me and I can’t imagine for what, he can tell me to my face but not this way… please!

          • fauxmccoy says:

            i am sure you are not banned or i would not be reading this. sorry this has been such a problem for you.

          • gbrbsb says:

            I don’t think so either, at least I can’t understand why, but I am getting so upset now I have to think now maybe he has. I can’t post on whonoze’s again today either so please someone contact him because he seemed to have fixed it yesterday but this morning it’s not working again. Or maybe he didn’t fix it and it’s working on and off, but it’s working perfectly on Xena’s and she did take me out of spam so she could tell PL and whononze how she did it.

            I checked with my provider this morning and I have what they call a dynamic IP address, i.e. it changes every time I log on, so it can’t be because of a single IP address,BUT it could be because I have a changing one and there is a setting that you have to do that accepts different IP’s from the same person.

            PLEASE post professor every time you can and other bloggers too to get his attention to my plight.

          • fauxmccoy says:

            will do my best –

    Somebody should send BDLR a link to the gym advertisement.

    • ay2z says:

      ould certainly call that sleasy gym owner’s testimony into question as pro Z bias for business promo. Maybe even something a little off the top, for the defense, or for post -trial weight loss!!

  35. jodiwankanobi says:

    if all of this is admissible then does that open toe door for fogens character and his social media?

    Gawd that was funny, thanks to all who posted recaps. I did blow a gasket when Waste said this isn’t fair to fogen! What? Was it fair Trayvon couldn’t make it home ALIVE? gmafb

  38. ay2z says:

    Tomorrow morning, 8 AM Donnolly issue.

    Donnolly was one of the familial voice identifiers who violated the rule of sequestration and the defense knew it, as he sat right behind the defense side, first row, then moved back after a break.

    Day 2 saw the hearing about the admission of the prior NEN calls made from August 2011 through into February 2012, by the stalker, killer.

    So Donnolly listened to all these calls during the hearing at least. Then, after staying away from media, as claimed by he and his wife, he decided to go listen to the 911 recording twice to prepare himself to ID the screams also, in his defense testimony pro fogen.

    How would he have got a seat on that side, where the Z family and their supporters s sit?

  39. Woow! says:

    Ok there were four violations
    1. Donnelly
    2. John speaking with the video maker
    3. video maker speaking with Dr. Di Miao
    4. Schumaker said he spoke with Jena and listened to her 911 call

    Jena and John should not have been talking to MOM and the video guy.

    • groans says:

      Serious stuff, too.

    • jodiwankanobi says:

      waaaah!! i missed so much…..has JN ruled about the animation yet? How did we find out about John, Di Miao etc.. Was much said about Donnelly or is it all going to happen in the morning? Is JN pissed at only the defense or is she pissed with everyone at this point? oh the ups and downs

    • ay2z says:

      Thanks, missed much!

      That’s the same John who was on camera with a reporter at his door last year, Bernie talked about that during his testimony.

      Those were done at the request of the defense lawyers, Schumaker tried to say not the lawyers, but then he admitted they caused him to call the ME DeM.

    • Tzar says:

      damn damn damn

  40. LiveByTheGulf says:

    Was talking to my son during all the excitement of the trial this evening. Thought court had been dismissed and the animation ruled admissible.
    Anyway, my son has only watched bits and pieces of the trial on TV in airports. He thinks Zimmerman is guilty. Z didn’t stay in the truck as ordered by the 911 operator. He thinks Zimmerman focused his efforts to learn everything he could about the SYG law (thus the good grade) and plotted to take advantage of the SYG law. He’d become a neighborhood watch guy, had a story already in place.

  41. KateW says:

    There was a part of Di Maeo’s testimony I found ridiculous and that was that he possibly had a deviation of some kind on his nose that was popped back into place. If this were remotely true the murderer would have been in agonizing pain, if his nose were broken he would be bleeding profusely and someone would notice this deviation. I believe that photo was tampered with.

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      I found several ridiculous statements in his testimony. What I believe is that West, MOM, and Maeo were banking on no one disputing the best in the field and that he could tell them anything and everyone would believe him. After all, he’s most respected and top in his field. Especially, someone talking after their heart has been pulled out.

      Puleeeeeze. I know that one and one is two, but it can also be eleven.

  42. smokeegyrl says:

    In cased you missed it.

  43. Dee says:

    Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) trainer Adam Pollock provided key testimony in defense of accused murderer George Zimmerman on Monday, but was due in court Tuesday for a pretrial hearing stemming from his own arrest. In a bizarre coincidence, just one day after providing an in-courtroom demonstration of MMA techniques, with Zimmerman defense attorney Mark O’Mara as his β€œopponent,” Pollock was due in court over a March, 2013 arrest for allegedly assaulting Tina Mangiardi, a former model who agreed to plead guilty in a scheme to defraud investors of $2 million in a Ponzi scheme. From WFTV:

  44. disappointed says:

    Good night all! See you bright and early. Try not to be late. West is going to be apologizing to Guy and the rest of Trayvon’s team(because I am demanding it!) and then I suspect JN will deal with the other issues.

      Now I’ve seen it all.

    • Rachael says:

      Good thing the jury is sequestered. Might make them wonder about his testimony otherwise. Just more proof that the defense is a bunch of LIARS!!!!!

    • ay2z says:

      Yep, sure hope Bernie gets to see that, because it goes to a witness’s bias, making profits in kind, from testimony in a high profile case.

      Tomorrow at 8 am, the Donnolly issue. JN was not happy that this was one of two witnesses who she heard had violated the rule of sequestration, both from the defense side.

      West and MOM whined as she said 88 am tomorrow morning, yet they caused it.

      • ZCBest says:

        They are in big trouble with Donnelly, Good, and Kopelli’s (Adam Polluck – at some point). I can’t wait until 8 a.m. now!!! Hurry up clock, I don’t need sleep!

        YOU KNOW THOSE ADS from “don’t have cable TV”:

        If you have cable TV you can’t watch what you want to watch.
        When you can’t watch what you want to watch you go to Kokopelli’s gym and train.
        When you go to Kokopelli’s gym and train you become such a girly-man you have to buy and carry a gun everywhere.
        When you become such a girly-man you have to buy and carry a gun everywhere you get paranoid.
        When you get paranoid you think every innocent kid is a real suspicious guy.
        When you think every innocent kid is a real suspicious guy you chase after some kid and kill him in cold blood.
        When you chase after some kid and kill him in cold blood you get charged with Murder-2.
        When you get charged with Murder-2 you get a hanging judge and you get convicted.
        When you get a hanging judge and you get convicted, you go to prison for 35 years to life.

        DON’T go to prison for 35 years to life, get rid of CABLE TV!

  49. Christopher Charles says:

    Question: does the criticism of the ME and his department by today’s expert witness- a renowned pathologist, who has written a widely referenced book about gun shot wounds and chapters for other books- open doors for those serving time because they were convicted of murder to file appeals challenging the forensics used in their respective case?

    It seems to me that the case is shining the light into many dark areas. This case is having far reaching ramifications. The light is shining ever so bright on liars, demons, imps, murderers (not only is Zimmerman the murderer, those who support him via lies, deceit, character assassination, hellish schemes) are murderers too.)

    We are in serious spiritual warfare and those of us who are shining our lights on this case are not only seeking JUSTICE for TRAYVON but we are seeing that among us are entirely too many who have no moral compass to guide them; they are soulless. That’s something that has very serious implications for all of us.

    Hoodies Up and lights shining bright!

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      Amen. They’d rather believe a lie than the truth. An unarmed kid walking home, minding his own business, talking to a friend on the phone about a game is murdered by a man that had no authority whatsoever to follow or confront him. The kid is blamed for his own murder and labeled a thug. The parents are labeled no good ghetto and gang members. I thought I had seen and heard everything, but like my mamma used to tell me you’ll learn something new even on the day you die.

      Dr. Bao should be fired.

      Bao: “I DON’T REMEMBER ANYTHING!! YOU UNDERSTAND? ZERO!! [Goose-egg hand gesture, for more emphasis.] I DO NOT HAVE FACTS. I HAVE OPINIONS! ALL I KNOW IS FROM MY REPORT AND MY NOTES.”

      West: “So … do you have your notes right there in front of you, doctor?”

      Bao looked like, and was, a fool on the stand.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Yes, he sure did. Did Dr. Bao testify like that in other trials? Because it seems to me that if he has testified in other trials, it was well-known that he would react like he did. It’s either that or Dr. Bao is helping cover up the lack of proper investigation.

        • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

          Because it seems strange to me that an Asian male would do what he did when it involves their career. Asians tend to be detail orientated and very conscientious workers. Or did West purposely attack his English and ethnicity?

      • bettykath says:

        I think someone should look at procedures and why they weren’t followed. As an ME, he should be supervising the techs, not just assuming they are doing their job properly.

    CNN’s legal analysts are saying the animation wont make it in as evidence.

    • crazy1946 says:

      Wow, for once CNN has got it right! It simply can not come in, it is opinion not fact…. The “expert” that made the comic book, did not use fact in portions of it, instead he relied on not only MOM/Ice Cream Man /Fogdoit, he relied on a witness who’s testimony actually contradicts the findings of the comic book… I predict it will not be allowed as evidence, however it can come in during closing argument because it does not have to factual (nor will it be considered evidence at that point)! The position of Judge Nelson is simple, it can not be something that the jury will hear/see over and over because it simply is opinion (not fact) submitted by the defense with no verifiable source of truth….

  54. Richard H. is saying that what West said about his health not allowing him to work these long hours is a case for reversal if GZ is convicted…..so, I have no doubt that West said that to cause an appellate issue. Means they must be worried about their case, and I have no doubts West meant to say that to cause an appellate issue.

    • PerfectlyImperfect says:

      The other side of the argument is he should not have taken the case on if he had failing health and lead council is fine health wise.

        What ever is on Trayvon’s phone, is not relevant in this trial. on the other hand, Fogen’s hidden phone, text and email messages, are more than relevant and, they should be brought out in this trial. it’s not fair for the prosecution to sit back while the defense insist on keeping up their demonizing the TRUE VICTIM in this case.

        @cercando — this crap was all said after JN announced recess — although she did continue speaking with them for a bit before walking away. i tend to think it’s horseshit.

    • Malisha says:

      HE did not prepare and HE says he needs more time, with a sequestered jury, to do more nonsense that is all unnecessary and against the rules anyway. HE ran the clock and HE filibustered. He might have said all that to create an appellate issue but only if an appellate court really wants to liberate a racist murderer will it make any difference, and if an appellate court does want to liberate a racist murderer, it will do so with or without a reason. We all know that score.

    • riisey007 says:

      If I was ill I wouldn’t want my potential last case to be getting a murderer off for killing a child. People like West see nothing wrong with being prejudiced, they think is is their right. He was fine before prosecution rested, perhaps his old azz should have taken naps instead of questioning people to the point of no return. Perhaps his home health aide could come sit in the court room with him tomorrow. This is getting to be too much.

    • Malisha says:

      Oh I’m not crying any crocodile tears for West, sick or healthy. None of us gets to be healthy forever and if he’s sick, that’s his issue, but if he’s racist, obnoxious, disrespectful, amoral, and dishonest, all I have to say is that plenty of better people have had worse health problems, whatever his are.

      • DruDo says:

        Malisha, I agree 100%! My grandfather was a mean, nasty man and it had nothing to do with his health or age. None of the family ever knew him to be any different, not even his own siblings who stayed away from him. He was demanding, rude and hateful to the core. West reminds me of him and I dislike him thoroughly.

    I just watched the video above and it was refreshing to see JN ignore W rather than keep repeating herself and walk to her chambers.

    I like when she said she had heard twice in her court room that jurors violated her sequestration order. Ooohweee go get em JN.

    See MOM and W complaining about the state violating the rules is just like their client blaming someone else for their fuckups.

    To generate bs txts that support a theory of a fighting street fighting honky beating type bad asssed dude

    I hope the Prosecution now tries to bring in Zimmerman’s past

    • bellesouth says:

      Remember Dee Dee (Rachel) said that someone texted stuff to Trayvon from her phone and it really wasn’t her. The judge can’t rule that kind of activity out.

    • bettykath says:

      My nephew would play with my phone while I was driving. I don’t know what he was doing but my phone isn’t as much fun since I blocked the internet after getting the bill. Although he still plays with the stop watch. There might be a game or two on there but I don’t know.

  66. crazy1946 says:

    Sophia33, I’ll predict that neither will get in. The reason the animation will not get in is simple, it is not an accurate presentation and the man who made it used unreliable and possibly false information. It contradicts some of the expert testimony as well as some of the prior witness testimony, so it will not get in. The phone texts and photos are not relevant nor are they proved to be from Trayvon, and there fore they can not be introduced.
    I do predict that come the rebuttal portion from the state, that the texts and the prior history of the Fogdoit will come in. He can be disposed by the state to verify that they are indeed his texts and came from his phone, something that the defense can not do due to their client murdering the alleged owner of the texts and photo’s… I will miss tomorrow morning with another Dr. appointment, perhaps will catch the afternoon session, so I will have to trust that you folks will keep me advised as to what happens in the morning…

    • Beverly says:

      Good luck…..it certainly looks like we will all be watching.
      G’ Night.

    • Sophia33 says:

      I hope you are well crazy1946. Take care of yourself. I agree with you. I think JN is trying to prevent a reversal so I think she will try to throw them a bone. I could be wrong and I hope I am.

  67. Sabrina B. says:

    8 a.m. will be here before I know it. Going to bed now so that I can be real alert for tomorrow morn.

  68. abbyj1 says:

    TwoSides, I found a shorter version of the fireworks between West and Judge Nelson. He is a first-class A-hole, and did everything but call her a whore. Here you go.

    • Beverly says:

      Even Ommm looks like he’s in shock…and the rest was yet to come.

    • Rachael says:

      Oh boooohooooo. It’s so unfair. waaaaaaaaaaaaa. I don’t know what you could have done, but perhaps if you wouldn’t have done what you did (spending so much time trashing Trayvon and his family and appearing on TV every day/night) but then you might not have anything to cry about.

    • Cynthia, TX says:

      clearly West has some anger issues!

    • ay2z says:

      That was quite a show. Finally MOM said ‘shhhh’ to WEst as the judge was leaving the bench, and told him to be quiet.

      Prof predicted the pressure might get to West.

    • Sophia33 says:

      MOM was trying to get West to shut up and he wouldn’t.

    • Sophia33 says:

      This is almost as good as watching Karl Rove flip out during the election.

    • DruDo says:

      Did you all notice the sh*it eating grin on fogen’s face after West’s tirade? Goes to show how psycho he is if he thought that was funny. He and dumb and dumber better be worried about that freak show they’re putting on in that courtroom. That was outrageous behavior and West should absolutely be smacked down hard for that little performance. West is out of his mind and O’M isn’t far behind.

    • Tzar says:

      LOVED HOW GUY HANDLED HIM

  69. HeresLookingatYOU says:

    As much as I enjoyed the melt down by West, It strikes me as he and Oliar are trying to create issues down the road for appeal if the murderer gets his just conviction. Sad they try to paint Trayvon as the unruly , uncivilized thug, and they are the despicable ,vile , nasty ones and they just showcased that for all to see.

    • EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

      Exactly, someone mentioned earlier that when West stated he couldn’t continue because of his health like this that is grounds for appeal or reversal.. But the court section was close JN was walking out when West blurted this out. How will this work if someone knows….

      What amazes me they seem scared.. They got everything in they wanted….

  70. Sophia33 says:

    My prediction for tomorrow. So she doesn’t come off as biased, the animation gets in. The texts and pictures do not get in. Donnelly and Goode sequestration issue dealt with.

    • PerfectlyImperfect says:

      Judge Nelson does not care about the appearance bias. Judge Nelson rules on the matter based on the legality of the argument, so i don’t think the animation will be allowed in as evidence. She may allow it to be used as a demonstration during closing argument.

      • Susan Moore says:

        Perfectly: I agree with your assessment.

      • Malisha says:

        I do not think it should be permitted in any way shape or form at any time whatsoever. It is a fantasy film and its purpose is propaganda and it has nothing to do with law and it would violate the sanctity of the trial, period. The laws of evidence do not contemplate making up complete fictions and turning them into filmstrips to show the jury like some training film for recruits in the military. This should be DENIED in its entirety.

        • PerfectlyImperfect says:

          While I would prefer for the animation to be left out of court altogether, closing arguments can have visual representations (i.e. the defendant’s story of what occured, since closing is not evidence.

    • Jun says:

      If she let the animation in, she would appear bias considering it’s a bias film

      It’s like letting in Nazi Propaganda films into evidence that Fogen was right to kill Jews

      Besides, it’s a cartoon, not real life

      It’s ridiculous to even consider it as evidence since it’s pure fiction and fantasy because it’s a cartoon

      Lastly, it’s never ever been used in trial ever

      Cmon son, what’s next, lawyers can enter in Power Rangers films as evidence? To make it okay to kill and rape? This is court, and the point is to find truth and fact and authentication

      Also, it’s a discovery violation considering this came in on July 4th or whatever and has not been reviewed for authenticity

      Being bias does not mean give in to anything ridiculous the defense proposes as truth

  71. Two sides to a story says:

    If anyone knows of a link to that last bit of fireworks, please let me know. I don’t think anyone has it up yet.

    • Sophia33 says:

      Tzar just posted it above.

      • disappointed says:

        I can’t watch it yet. I am still laughing from the real deal. West really looks like he could be wife beater. He acted real retarded tonight! jmo

        • Beverly says:

          I have really wondered all along if he may not be in good health; maybe he just prefers that skinny, bald look. But he does not look well, from what I can see.

          • groans says:

            Maybe he’s not in good health – in which case he should take the time necessary to look after his health.

            But … maybe he just is the hothead that he appears to be.

  72. PiranhaMom says:

    @disappointed,

    Re: “Maybe he won’t get reversal if higher court reads lips when he said fuck her to JN.

    To quote Eliza Doolittle in “My Fair Lady”:

    “Wouldn’t that be loverly!”

  73. Tzar says:

    Exculpatory…there’s that word again
    I don’t think he knows what that mans at all
    what a fucking whiner

    • Mojo says:

      “I do not think that word means what you think it means.” Inigo Montoya

    • Jun says:

      so whomever used Trayvon’s cell to text or post something unrelated to the encounter which led to a young man’s death equates innocence for Fogen

      Rachel put it best, it’s real retarded

      I do not believe the retarded nonsense from this case

      The defense wants the world to believe the most ridiculous nonsense ever

  74. Ty Flair says:

    I guess someone want be eating a ice cream cone tonight. They just like fogen want to blame everybody else for there damn mistakes.

  75. kllypyn says:

    people do not walk around after being shot in the heart. where did he get his medical degree a cereal box? they are saying he was beaten up so he had to shoot. the evidence shows otherwise. all he has are a few scratches. the prosecution need to stop pussy footing around and that pathologist should have been called out on his bull crap.

  76. type1juve says:

    Didn’t O’Mara try to slip in that he won’t be ready tomorrow, something about not having time to prep witnesses?

    • Sophia33 says:

      Yes he did. He said he couldn’t prepare witnesses and she wasn’t trying to hear it.

      • racerrodig says:

        The funny part was “….we spent 10, 20, 100 hours…” regarding analyzing this report.

        Damn Sam !! nothing like having a problem and you’re off by 10 X the time frame…..according to my math….10 X 10 would be 100 hours.

  77. tashatexas77048 says:

    Time for bed but I’m also convinced the Fogenhogs are reading this blog and to them I say:

    I hope Fogen can scream loud enough to get a prison guards attention because in a week or so THAT’S WHERE HE WILL BE.

    Good night!

  78. Is there a copy of tonights proceedings online anywhere yet? I have to see the GRAND FINALE one more time!

    • Tzar says:

      Oh my, I just got to see the end of it
      West finally had th meltdown that we have all been predicting
      I loved it
      ha ha ha ha ha

      • Sophia33 says:

        Mom was trying to get west to shut up! LOL!

      • Sabrina B. says:

        Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Just had to see that again.

      • chi1224 says:

        Thank you!! This is so f-ing priceless!!

      • abbyj1 says:

        TZAR, Thank you. I’d been looking for the whole encounter, and you have the longer version including comments by John Guy. Fantastic. There’s a shorter one I found below where West goes apish*t. Thanks!

        BTW, that’s a shocking statement West made about not being about to continue physically. Hmmm. Wonder what the court might do with that one.

      • My Forehead Tho says:

        “miniprizes 26 minutes ago
        I had to see the ending one more time and I’m just so angry that she walked out on the defense like that!ο»Ώ It not only shows disrespect towards them, but that she doesn’t really care about the case at all. Ugh, I guess that’s Florida’s finest judge right there.”

        ^ The top comment on that video. I’m lost. I guess people see only what they want to see.

        • Malisha says:

          Well of course, miniprize’s take on it was that the judge had to be more respectful of the defense, and not vice versa; that the defense gets to call the shots and schedule the court hearings, and not vice versa; and that the defense should be the ultimate authority in the case, not the judge. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!! “She doesn’t really care about the case” means, “she isn’t doing what we want.”

      • Ty Tzar! Right when it cuts off is when West turns back to his chair and says F…Her to JN. Going to watch the shorter version below. Priceless!

      • boyd says:

        Thanks Tzar

      • Woow! says:

        I loved it when JN walked out the court room.

      • aussie says:

        EXCULPATORY??????

        Trayvon’s (supposedly) texts about some fight some months ago somehow make GZ innocent???? of murder???

        oohhh pooooor dears…..they had to do depositions on weekends and preparation every night………….

        what about June 2012 to June2013 ????????????????????

        • Malisha says:

          Exculpatory thus:
          Trayvon was bad;
          Trayvon wanted to fight white men;
          Trayvon wanted a gun to protect himself (needed one, huh?);
          therefore
          Trayvon needed to be killed;
          so since Fogen killed him, he’s innocent.

      • Mojo says:

        Sorry, but Holy fucking shit! What! A!! Smackdown!!!

    • Sabrina B. says:

      Me too. I want an instant replay.

  79. PerfectlyImperfect says:

    Mark O’Mara’s face was priceless when that bruhaha took place! West is so unprofessional it’s ridiculous! Who does that especially to a superior court officer?

  80. KateW says:

    I would surmise that West has no respect for women judges. If it had been a man, he clearly would not have been talking to him in the same manner. Very disrespectful of women, but the defense has also shown disrespect for people of color as well.

  81. omg Read above from Richard Hornsby a prominent attorney in Orlando…..I cannot stand him because of the Caylee Anthony case, but he danged well knows the law….now what does reversal mean????

    • colin black says:

      Means what it says

      To reverse to back up no longer heading forward.

      To revrse a decision in Law can varie an means many varied things.

      Forinstance a ruleing by a Judge an be undone or reversed by a superior court .

      Could be a revesal if some Judge said righ this former type behaviour of defendant of prior rapes is not getting infront of the Jury

      Ann the prosecution can seek areversal of that decision an a do over at a higher couret,

      Both the defence and or the State can ask for reversals on a ruleing they dond concour with the court.

      Now If there talking a reversal ie the Verdict that’s a hole entire enchilada with wax in its ears.

      I know a reversal of a not guilty verdict is impossible in the States because of double jeapordy so Im not sure what they mean reversal of what.

      The double D D heading there way?

      I doubt it as by the time any ruleings heard at an appelte at a higher court about letting in cartoons or
      Alleged fighting talk by Trayvon

      Thease matters take time

      An that’s one thing theDEFENCE HAS NONE OF TIME

      Although foggagge is about to have a whole heapum time.

      Hope you understand foggagge heapum that’s Innuit for a lot of a large amount.

      • KA says:

        Yeah, but his argument was with the statute she was reading on meeting the bar of authentication of electronic communications for evidence. West felt the phone was enough and she read that it was not.

        The funny thing I found is that they got the bin file in Feb and a report that included all the text messages in Feb and then they discovered 600 pictures. How were they going to authenticate a picture on the phone?

        If they wanted to reach all the parties on the text messages they had since Feb AND she said even if they did, it still would not be authenticated by the author anyway….

        AND his issue on physical sustainability is not reversible because he is co counsel. Meanwhile the lead counselor has been out every night doing interviews. Having witnesses not prepared is not the Judge’s issue.

        They should fear this witness thing tomorrow. If it truly ends up being three of the defense called witnesses and they corroborated it, I can’t imagine the reaction of JN.

    • he’s not prominent and he’s totally brainwashed and *assumes* that there’s no reason the jury will disbelieve gz’s ridiculous version that Trayvon jumped HIM!

      I has it out with him about the issue of how zim had material inconsistencies- like the 1st punch and falling down part, and he thinks the 40 some feet are easily explainable.

      he’s been dying to be booked for one of the shows so he’s looking to capitalize on Trayvon’s murder too.

  82. LOL!

    Judge Nelson dropped the mic on Don West!

  83. disappointed says:

    oh Lord, west acting like a spoiled 2 year old is so they can get reversal. WTF?
    That bastard better apologize to Hottie tomorrow. Very disrespectful accusing him of such bull shit. I think the prosecution has put up with enough bull shit from these 2. Maybe he won’t get reversal if higher court reads lips when he said fuck her to JN.

  84. Sophia33 says:

    MOM is upset he missed his CNN appearance.

  85. tashatexas77048 says:

    Oh and let me say once again, people here disagreed with my opinion that Dr. Rao’s testimony and her balling up her fist and showing how TM could have punched Zimmerman would come back to bite the Pross in the rump. That’s at least 3 times now that her testimony has come up and I’m positive it will be a huge part of their closing arguments. I still maintain HER TESTIMONY REGARDING THAT MATTER WAS A HUGE MISTAKE.

    • PerfectlyImperfect says:

      She can be called on rebuttal.

      • tashatexas77048 says:

        Please dear lord in the name of baby Jesus I hope they call her and let her clear that up. Great point and I pray it’s true! πŸ™‚

        • PerfectlyImperfect says:

          We’ll see who they bring in. I think the tide is definitely turning. HLN just said how well the prosecution is doing.

    • Jun says:

      Fogen also could have punched himself in the nose

      See how “could have” is not conclusive?

  86. EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

    Isn’t GZ a child molester also…

    • tashatexas77048 says:

      Yep and it’s relevant because maybe Rachel was right and the CAC wanted some kiddie action.

      JN if you’re gonna do it, do it all the way. Let it all hang out and let the jurors decide If Trayvon deserved to die because he was posturing to his peers and girls on his phone like he was tough stuff when we all know he was a middle income kid that still wore photo buttons and his most dangerous tattoo was his momma’s name!

    • aussie says:

      NO he’s not. He was a child himself when those incidents occurred, ie demonstrates an interest in his own age group.

  87. Judy75201 says:

    Don West looks old enough for retirement. This case might be his last gasp.

    • Beverly says:

      And for them to complain about the time….2 completely long-winded, not very smart guys just prattling on. Plus, night time show appearances….Sorry they do not have preparation time; welcome to world of trial lawyers. Crazy stuff. She really waited too long to set the limits. But finally….good for her.

  88. Sophia33 says:

    Oh, where is Trent when you need him. I would love to have his commentary overlaid with the fireworks of the last few minutes.

  89. Sophia33 says:

    Zimmerman has about 20 minutes to get his behind home.

  90. Tzar says:

    West is senile

  91. willisnewton says:

    All I can say is that BDLR had better be ready with one hell of a rebuttal. To me this whole case should be about GZ’s credibility or lack thereof. Every one of these side issues fail to stack up in relevance to the issue of a person’s credibility in a murder case where they claim self defense after KILLING the other witness/ participant in an altercation.

    Part of me hopes that the jury be allowed to see every single thing ever written or tweeted about this case, fish or fowl, so they can rule on it ALLLLLLLLL.

    two people met. One is dead and the other is a liar. The rest barely matters.

    • Leisa says:

      IMHO there is one very basic issue here. Is there any justification for pulling out a gun and shooting a boy for punching you in the nose? A punch in the nose that was completely asked for and deserved. You cannot shoot a kid for punching you in the nose when you knew police were overdue to arrive.
      Lots of men have gotten their asses kicked and been men about it and not claimed they were gonna be vegetables from wrestling around on the grass. Be a pissing man.

      One other thought I had…. If he is not found guilty of Murder 2nd deg. He will never be a LEO. He will never obtain that respect and adulation he craves. He will never be anything but an embarrassment to his father. He will never be able to carry a gun. He will be hated wherever he goes. He will live in fear for the rest of his worthless life and I think that could be some consolation……

        The unremitting schedule of deposeing witnesses an prep an not enough blah bla ba wa bawh

        At first o maniac egged him on a wee bit saying unreasonable a whine whinwe

        An that’s when SKELLATOR realy snapped he was shouting an Scolding J Nelson /the Court theState for grinding them down relentlessly

        O Maniac panicked real;isenig skellator was on the Brink of a very public nervous break down.

        Shushed hushed him up as fast as possible sort of urgeing him oot

    Aren’t TM’s ORCHESTRATED FIGHTS with his own peers the same as Fat Ass Fucknasty showing up at the gym 3 times a week to grapple and fight? What’s the damned difference? At least TM was grappling with members of his age group and not trying to tangle with a big ass overgrown stanky butt MAN. Meanwhile Zimmerman is strolling around trying to start fights with teenagers, on the real I HOPE TRAYVON WHOOPED HIS BUTT!!!

    • willisnewton says:

      TM had every right to kick his face in. But it seems the physical altercation was probably just two people struggling over whether or not someone got detained illegally.

      • tashatexas77048 says:

        The evidence suggests TM was not match for a man WITH A GUN and it’s quite clear the gun dictated the action early on. But I hope that some kind of way TM still kicked his butt lol

      • Malisha says:

        or killed illegally.

    • KA says:

      They are sparring…when my older boys were teens the kids did it all the time. It is like wrestling.

      Funk nasty. LMAO. I had been quite pissed since Mr. Cartoon took that stand, but boy oh boy, did Judge Nelson make up for that when she pazzacked up her shizzit and wazzalked her tazzail up izzout of there!

  94. Cercando Luce says:

    She announced for the 4th time that court was in recess, and exited as West raised his voice at her.

    It occurred to me– the phone could have been purchased from another party, prior owners’ info remaining. Charities collect phones for resale.

    • Rachael says:

      I very seriously doubt that. But that has nothing to do with it. I don’t care what is on that phone, it had NOTHING to do with that night.

    • ChrisNY~Laurie says:

      Very good point. Was it established when and where this particular phone was purchase and activated?
      Were these texts and pictures proven to be from Trayvon’s cell number?

      A friend of mine bought a used phone on EBay and when she got it she sure got a surprise of porno and tons of disgusting nude pics.

  95. Dave says:

    Holy Mackeral!!! It’s been a loooong day but those last few minutes made it all worth while.

    Hasta manana, amigos!

  96. Trained Observer says:

    HOT DAMN: I’m packed and got back here just in time. JN recesses repeatedly, declares it at least three times … and leaves courtroom while West is still arguing louder and louder …. with O’Mara chiming in with a harmonizing whine. . It was 9:56 p.m. EST in Sanford when this occurred.

    Just before leaving JN laid it on them that twice today she heard of sequestration violations. She cited Donnelly, but there may be another … possibly Sonny Bono aka Shoemaker. .

    Have never seen a judicial departure while lawyers were still babbling to the back of a judge before. By all means check it out.

    Carry on Leatherheads … regret missing tomorrow morning’s action.

    • Sophia33 says:

      The other is Dr. DeMaio that came out possibly while you were away. He was talking to the cartoon guy during his sequestration.

      • Trained Observer says:

        @Sophia33 — Thanks for that info on DeMaio this ayem. Wouldn’t it be something if his $400 per hour testimony was struck along with that of cartoon guy? See you in a few days. Still amazed by last night’s finale.

    • colin black says:

      Oh shoemakers a cert infact they both are a think it was ch 9 had screen shots up of at least shoemaker sitting in court not sure what day it was

      Perhaps some fashionista could correlate the ties on the attrneys in shot.

      An I think yup that auld viatnam geezer he was sittin in in court as well I remember now there both busted

      I said on the thread when the duberting shoemaker or whatever its called Mantiel was saying an of course you haven’t heard any of the testomany of any witness in this case have you/ like a good little wittnesss. waiting to be called

      An he was answering in the negative ..oh no not I .

      I asked doest this dude realise they know he has broken the law of??not sequestered
      But you know like foggagges family witnesses not allowed to sit in court.

      An that’s two today that’s been caught

      Knowing thease dufouss the word ice berg an tip springs to mind.

      You can bet yer bottom dollor if there not even willing to respect the stay out the court room edict

      There hardly likely to repect the stay of the net don’t watch read any media ect instructions

      Reversal of what? The whole case? Meaning mistrial?

    • chi1224 says:

      I call bullshit! This guy sounds like a moron to me, West has no legal right to subject the court to his endless BS, at some point the judge needs to shut his ass down! F-ing WEST is not some kind of victim…. can’t “physically continue”… THEN STFU ASSHOLE, he brings this on himself! Hornsby is an idiot… I’ve never heard of a reversal to to “physically unable to proceed” get real asshole! LOL

      I looked into that several months ago and what I determined, that the co-counsel can remove himself from the case with out disrupting the process, so no it is not grounds for reversal….
      I actually looked into that because I anticipated that they would try this tactic, but it will not work because he is not the primary counsel but actually secondary in the defense team…..

      • fauxmccoy says:

        exactly — as long as one of the defense team is there, it ain’t no mistrial

        • crazy1946 says:

          This farther indicates the statements that I made several months ago, well before the trial started, that the defense would not actually try for a stand your ground, nor do anything other than attempt to force a mis-trial to buy time. The hope of the defense (submitted to them by the tree sewer gang) is that once a mis-trial is declared the state will not go to the expense of trying the Fogdoit again and this case will simply fade into the forest of history. They better think again, if a mis-trail is granted, the state will try him again and again until they get a verdict… .

      • racerrodig says:

        The Professor had a blog on this as I recall. He can’t remove himself unless it’s a serious medical issue at this point….or he dies. The most that would happen is a continuance so The Moron Man can enlist help.

        One of Manson’s lawyers turned up missing and eventually dead and they kept going.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Hughes

        I joked about this happening to one of Fogen’s lawyers, maybe I’m not far off base. When you look at Fogen in the courtroom, his demeanor in general and his jail house calls, you can tell he’s not paling with a full deck and I would not put it past him or his dada to threaten them.

        What about Trayvon Martin, walking home in the rain, chased by a guy in a SUV, running, “skipping,” pursued, trying to get away, confronted, scared, pushed, threatened, terrorized, and PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO PROCEED.

        You want me to feel sowwy for widdow you, ice cream licker daddy? You all boo hood out now? Awwwwww, poo poo boy.

        Go home, Shithead. Take a pill and pretend to sleep. You do not deserve any consideration and no rational person will give you any. Have your pity-party with your two little blond jokes and don’t bother the likes of normal people with your whining.

      Hoping this is not a duplicate post, but Mr. Don, that’s retarded, sir.

      If West has any disability or effective assistance of counsel issues, he can address them through proper channels– via formal motions for removal with the Court or FLA Bar.

    • Answer this question. Once the judge said court is adjourned shouldn’t he have made that comment first. Will have to wait until court starts again to complain about his health.

      Session was over I thought…once she speaks the command.. in my book.. Anyone can continue to ramble…

  99. ChrisNY~Laurie says:

    West did that on purpose in my opinion. He is trying to piss JN off so he can say she denied motions cause she is biased. That is why they were smiling and giggling after she left.

    • Sophia33 says:

      Yep. I saw that.

      Yeah but really, look at all the time she spent listening to him blather on and on.

      • ChrisNY~Laurie says:

        Exctly, she has to let them blather or they will use that to say she didn’t let them argue their case. She did good for letting him go on and on and on and on. It shows that they like to hear themselves talk and she gave them thrit fair share of time. They didn’t have time to do hit because they were too busy reading blogs and appearing on TV.

    I ask question what is
    Violation of Sequestration

    • Nellie Nell says:

      John Good talking to video man and Mr. $2500 donation man!

    • disappointed says:

      no talking to witnesses or witnesses in court room except victims family!

    • uhoh says:

      John Donnelly, a witness that testified for the defense this week, was seated in the gallery watching the trial the first week. In general, witnesses that may be called to testify are not allowed to watch the trial testimony prior to being called to the witness box.

    • PiranhaMom says:

      @acemayo

      What is violation of sequestration?

      A. BIG trouble for O’Mara, West and Zimmerman, because Judge Nelson is furious that TWO violations occurred: first, last night the prosecution brought forward the discovery that Witness Donnell was in the courtroom (in violation of the Court’s Order), prior to giving his testimony yesterday; and second, she discovered tonight during the discussion of the admissibility of the defense’s “infomercial” that Zimmerman’s attorneys were in contact with witnesses to construct the cartoon they are trying to get into evidence (obviously, in lieu of Zimmerman testifying).

      B. Sequestration is a process requiring that witnesses be kept separated from the court proceedings or information therefrom, so that their testimony, when given, is “pure” and not influenced by the proceedings before they testify. After they testify they are permitted to watch the proceedings.

      FYI, evidence of the first instance of the violation of Judge Nelson’s order for sequestration was brought forward by the Leatherman Law Blog.

      This will be addressed at 8:00 a.m. Wednesday.

    • Dee says:

      Violation of Sequestration means that they were sequestered and still under oath, and was not allowed to take to anyone about the case at all. The guy who was a witness and lived in the community witnessed that he has seen Trayvon on top of Zimmerman. I can’t remember his name. Nevertheless, he was still under oath. However, through the help of MOM, he was advised to tell this guy that made this animation. Which means he talked outside of his sequestration. Because he talked about the case to this guy to recreate the scene. BUSTED

  108. Jeanette says:

    I tried posting a comment some months ago and I’m not sure it ever appeared, but I hope this makes the cut.

    First, I’m a longtime lurker and thank Professor Leatherman and the regular contributors for all the tremendous work you do.

    Second, I’m a bit confused as to why JN would entertain the Defense’s argument regarding TM’s phone info at such length. I thought she established at the last major evidentiary hearing that there would be a two-pronged test in this matter–relevance and authentication. From my view, the Defense has had ample time, opportunity and resources to meet both. Why is there no opening inquiry, prior to argument, whether the Defense is ready to meet both burdens? I’m picking up on the Defense’s willingness to unceasingly argue relevance, without having first successfully overcome the authentication issue.

  109. Sabrina B. says:

    The unmitigated gall to say HE is not physically capable of keeping up this pace? WTF! First of all, you are the long winded one. Secondly, take yourself off the case fewl. WOW And she walked out on his fewl azz.

          • fauxmccoy says:

      Confirm that one, type1. Blatant disrespect. I wish she’d kick his butt . . . but she’s a cautious one. She knows he’s waiting for her to fall for his provocation, and she’s too smart to do it. She won’t be calling that killer a “potted plant,” however appropriate it was when Judge Lester did, lying to the court, perjuring himself. She’s got her edge, but she knows how to rein it in. More power to her.

      West is not the only very disrespectful attorney here. Did you see the way Mom was all but layer out in his chair with both arms up over his head all stretched out. You do not do that in a courtroom.

    Has anyone ever seen the likes of this in a courtroom?

    • DruDo says:

      Never, ever.

      • Malisha says:

        I did chase a judge off the bench once, though. Pro se. I had filed a motion timely and he said he wouldn’t hear it on motions day and I said that he had heard 17 such motions from my ex on motions day and I had properly noticed it and he said, “I have all these people here who work for me and they need a lunch hour,” and I said, “I was first on the docket but you held me over until this very minute, Your Honor, and I get a half hour for a properly filed motion,” and he shouted, “IF YOU SAY ANOTHER WORD I am leaving this room!” and I said, very sweetly and without raising my voice, “You may.” Whereupon he stormed out and I kept speaking, and the court reporter kept taking down my motion. (She winked at me.) He never decided the motion and he did many other unlawful things but that one was the most fun.

    • Leisa says:

      I can just picture me reacting to the situation instead of JN. I would have pointed one finger at him and said very quietly….. One more word from you WILL result in a contempt citation….finger still pointing for emphasis…. He would have spent the remainder of this night in a holding cell……..

    • LeaNder says:

      I guess the allusions to Fogen’s constitutional rights somehow reminded her of the political argument in the writ of certiorari.

      “pornography”, guns and fights.

      So if Trayvon had a fight with someone that snitched on him in school that is proof he also would without any reason arbitrarily attack people on the street and threatens to kill them?

      Nelson is just as sick now as Lester was.

      My mood was down again today.

      Hoping you are all well.

      • Leisa says:

        Hope they are not as low tomorrow as they were today…… ; – )

        • LeaNder says:

          hi, Leisa, this trial seems to be an emotional roller-coaster for me. Strictly I am not a very emotional person.

          But yes yesterday evening marked a new low. I hope that Nelson finds a way to keep the video and messages out. If you are handed the messages with a specific aim, it’s quite possible you misinterpret them (confirmation bias), even more if you have to go back and look at all the evidence and have limited time. The use of both video and messages are suggestive and manipulative are meant to be.

          From Nelson’s perspective CA is a Daubert state, were this creative animation seems to be accepted. So yes, I can understand Nelson wants to reflect on how to make her ruling legally solid.

          So far this woman did a very good job.

  151. kllypyn says:

    So Trayvon supposedly got into a minor incident a few months before he was killed agAin what does that have to do with the night he was killed? teenagerS get into fights and they are relatively minor and don’t last long. they are going to have to do better that that. one hit the other the other hits back they wrestle ANDTHEN THEY BOTH GO HOME. ZIMMERMAN WAS THE AGGRESSOR AND HE KNOWS IT. YOU ARE NOT JUSTIFIED IN SHOOTING A KID TO DEATH BECAUSE YOU GOT INTO A FIGHT WITH THEM OR THEY BEAT YOU UP.

  152. Unabogie says:

    Regarding Zimmerman’s past, remember that we’re still in the defense case portion of the trial. When they are done, the state can then proffer evidence to rebut what O’Mara has brought out. IMO, they presented several witnesses to show Zimmerman was weak, meek, and incapable of anything but smiles. I hope the judge agrees that this opened the door to show that he is anything but.

    However, the time to bring that up is AFTER the defense rests.

      I’ve noticed the pattern with the defense. When they’re pointing fingers it’s usually to hide something they’ve done.

      The most recent example of this I could remember is when O’Mara lied in court to the Judge then the next day or so accused the State of doing the same thing.

  171. colin black says:

    Hey as this blog is most ly Women smart Women at that.

    Every mans got to speak up for Trayvon.

    We have all been teenage boys an some off us stupid boys.

    Aneven stupid men the instinct an testestrone to protect.

    To be seen as tough a good fighter is always 99.9 BRAVADO If we were honest

    Ann if truth be known every one whom encounters violence a real fight situation is scared

    An the scareder the better.

    The best kind of scared iof your able to an on your own is run.

    An llive to run another day.

    We think that women will see manlinees an being a good fighter as a way to attract thhe opposite ssex

    Sex is the real thing that teenage boys an men are obsessed with not fighting that hurts .

    Make love not war so to speak how ever.

    Itsa hang up from cave man / cave dudes dudetes an caveslaves otherwiseknow as Women ..

    Joke!

    In essence even if thease txts are true there more than likely bravado / exaggerated to the max not fight but flights of fancy
    An what he fancy was not violence but the opposite.

    600 the state did not know about, no your honor. he said it but did not mean it. liar west.

    Yes, sit your ass down!!!

  178. uhoh says:

    West expert Connor clearly stated he had the BIN files from the phone on Feb 23, 2013. Why is he up there complaining about the alleged discovery violation.

  179. Leisa says:

    West needs to shut the hell up. This is not sanctions hearing jerk. No ruling has been made that there was a violation.

    WTF! His attempts to get away speaks to his intent and mindset that night!

    What a baby, West! Hey, first Mantei, and now Guy! Is that allowed??

  187. Cynthia, TX says:

    He’s right about who could have typed the messages teenagers use each others phones all the time

    sounds weird to us adults but they do it I have heard them say it I have a teenage boy!

  188. Thrace says:

    One fight doesn’t make one a pro fighter. Fat Boy was grappling for over a year, does that make him a pro at grappling?

    OMG I had to leave for awhile due to some obligations and I came back to check the rulings and it STILL ON!! Holy shit it’s 9:43PM there!!
    Somebody please tell me what has happened!!

    What text message did Trayvon send where he fought some dude for following him? Oh right he was never able to send that message. Get him HOTTIE!

    Please go to Trayvon trying to get away. Please. Please. Please.

  192. KateW says:

    Guy at bat and he’s going for a homerun.

  193. darlinsass says:

    This is the 3rd time he has brought up Rachel’s testimony, as to Trayvon’s fight!

  194. groans says:

    West legal basis:

    90.803 and (??) vs. Mississippi

    Fighting:
    90.803 – then existing mental/physical condition
    TM held GZ on the ground, like 1st round
    TM won 2nd and 3rd rounds
    TM made phone fighter’s nose bleed
    Michael French corroborates the fight. That helps authentication.
    Connor says deleted stuff is specific to fighting[
    [Something about Demetrius Martin being step-bro, and TM wanted DM to teach him to fight]
    Rachel deposition – in Feb TM told her he won a fight.
    = Strong circumstantial ev. that TM was proud of fighting and drawing blood and was able to prevail in 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    Why relevant?
    Relative physical capabilities of the “parties”
    Jury can determin GZ’s physical capabilities, as well as TM’s. And that includes “knowledge.” But TM’s was a 3-round fight. Shows TM had been in a fight, knew how to fight, and knew what would happen to GZ, b/c it had happened to TM in past.

    State tried to bring this in about GZ, in their questioning of the PA, Fulgate. State made a big deal of the MMA there.

    This info shows TM’s mental state before event, because he told someone about his fight. Rule 903 “emotional condition at the time”, but not on 2/26.

    Shows TM was able to sucker punch by surprise and then was able to mount GZ on his knees.

    We know TM was able to mount GZ, and all physical evidence corroborates that the shot was fired from ground up, GZ shirt was raised by 2 inches or so, and corroborated by J Good.

    Relevand and admiss by Rule 903.

    Florida Constitution and US Constitution compels it because guarantee to face witnesses and due process in defending

    Chambers v. Mississippi, too.

    Rules can’t apply rules to prevent defense from mounting [yes, he used that word] a defense. Especially where the evidence is reliable and trustworthy.

    Loop is closed by Rachel’s testimony, b/c TM told her about winning a fight and winning a fight. It’s reliable – not someone else typing this up – couldn’t be possible now that you’ve heard from Connor.

    High probative value of this very reliable evidence. Necessary to prevent a defense.

  195. Nellie Nell says:

    Dis the cameraman just doze off?

  196. disappointed says:

    Was not done with him yet? give me a break you oh I am so mad I need a minute to come up with a name!!! brb

  197. Judy75201 says:

    Don West is in filibuster mode.

  198. Cynthia, TX says:

    can we see what’s on GZ’s phone?

  199. Jun says:

    If this guy wants to do this cartoon bullshit, at the very least deny the video he made, and tell him to wait till everything is in, and he has to make the video according to all the evidence, not strictly what Omara says

    That’s the only real and fair way to do the cartoon where it is a real representation of the events and triers of truth and fact

    Basing it on Omara is basing it on stupidity and ridiculousness or as Rachel will put it, retarded

    anyways, I dont feel the cartoon should be let in, they should use real actors who fit the measurements of Fogen and Trayvon and purchase all the clothing necessary that match the sizes and brands worn by both, that way it is simulated realistically

  200. KateW says:

    LOL @ the camera…going to sleep. Goodnight.

  201. Nellie Nell says:

    So if mounted around the hips, how does Fogen reach his gun.

    John Good this and John Good that. When are the going to call his ass back to the stand.

    • Cynthia, TX says:

      he couldn’t because of the type of holster he had the gun was in toward his back not directly on his side his legs was wrapped around the gun

      • Lonnie Starr says:

        Omar is foolishly trying to use the small flashlight as evidence that a fight happened at the T, too bad for that because, Jon states that as he rounded the corner, after the gunshot, gz was coming towards him and was only about 3 feet away. He also noted that he did not see the small lit flashlight on the ground. In the dark any lit object would instantly attract attention of eyes sweeping the area, as he had to have done before he rounded the corner.

        He then went south to take a picture of the body, so gz was there at the T after the gunshot and could easily have dropped the flashlight then. No way to prove or disprove it, so the small flashlight’s location proves absolutely nothing at all.

        EXCEPT that when the jurors learn these facts about evidence Omar is relying so heavily upon, gz will be toast!

        He probably is already, since the audience was shaking their heads and laughing at his testimony. My guess is that people are getting tired of “professionals” telling them that they can’t figure out that ice cream is cold without their help.

  202. KateW says:

    So do the prosecution get to enter the defendant’s history given OMara opened the door with that “hot head” statement to Jenna Lauer?

  203. DruDo says:

    I don’t believe this. I left an hour ago and come back to see what happened and this idiot is still yammering? It’s after 9:30 PM there. Are they freakin’ crazy? What’s wrong with JN that she allows this? There’s something rotten going on.

    • Sophia33 says:

      Me too. I just came back and he is still going.

      • DruDo says:

        This is in no way normal and I really believe something is seriously wrong with West and I’m beginning to wonder about JN. And I’m not kidding.

    • willisnewton says:

      disagree. the judge is trying to not waste the jury’s time. She should be commended for taking the time to ensure the sequestered jury gets done in a timely fashion despite the defense team who moves slowly, yes but that is their right.

      get used to it. It;s how justice is done.

    • EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

      Been saying this all along. JN has given the defense every opportunity to get GZ off. It is not conspiracy but connections in the legal arena.. Something just isn’t cool here…

      It will open up a can of worms…GZ has been able to get away with everything because of his father’s connections. Hitting cops and restraining order against him. How is this not allowed….it too much there.

    • Sleuth says:

      I agree, something in the milk ain’t clean. I wonder if The Wiester and O’Dirty speak so arrognantly and so rudely to their parents and elders.

      • MedicineBear says:

        Yes, let’s get all the dirty stuff off their phones (you KNOW the KorruptKryptKeepers have really sick shit in their computer storage!) and let the jury see. That’s just as relevant to the victim’s history or character. The victim is not on trial (or shouldn’t be).

        Zimmerman is on trial. HIS violent history is relevant to a homicide case that indicates his aggression and violence.

        The victim’s past has no relevance. It’s despicable that the scum have invaded his privacy.

  204. Tzar says:

    West is rambling

  205. colin black says:

    Exersise REGIMEN

    Made him such a specimen

    He encountered TRAYVON BENJIM MARTIN.

    And he was the DEATH of HIM.

    r I p Trey…….

  206. disappointed says:

    oh here we go fucktard said he is thinking. west you are choosing to believe the liar you sit next to. what witness said Trayvon sucker punched fat ass?

  207. Sabrina B. says:

    So let’s get fogen’s past and texts in there for relevence.

  208. pork que says:

    According to the Killer’s lawyer (West) a woman who has several lovers cannot possibly be raped.

    West: Tell me, Missssss — how many lovers have you enjoyed before you (cough) accused my client of raping you.

  209. disappointed says:

    west you started the mma crap in opening.

  210. parrot says:

    West talking about the dumb smack kids indulge in when they text each other.

    Meanwhile, the prosecution doesn’t touch the very real violent criminal record of his adult client.

    Prosecution needs to take their damn gloves off.

    • Rachael says:

      I could be wrong, but I think they are going to be quiet about it – you know, sucker punch them.

    • KateW says:

      They do! Time to box prosecution.

    • willisnewton says:

      the means do not justify the ends. The prosecution needs to follow the rule of law and have ethics. They also need to avail themselves of every proper thing they can to win.

      • parrot says:

        Bringing up Z’s criminal record violate the rule of law or shows a lack of ethics?

        Am I missing something? Did JN rule that Z’s record is not to be introduced?

  211. KateW says:

    LOLLLL so they take her word on a fight but not on the fact that she says Martin was the one telling the defendant to get off of him??? So shouldnt her testimony as to her hearing the defendant initiating the altercation be taken as fact? LOLLL sorry Im tired. The defense is a joke. Apparently, double standards are the law of the land.

  212. Malisha says:

    The defense has, as Professor pointed out, no defense. All they have been doing is yelling “THUG THUG THUG THUG” from the beginning and now they’re alternating “THUG PUNCHED” with “poor little weak MMA guy screamed” over and over. Their evidence amounts to half a dozen “special” people and a cartoon movie they made in violation of the rules. How utterly embarrassingly bad! They should crawl back under their rocks and as they do so each of them should konk his noggin and get grievous injuries leading to terrifying rivulets of real blood. Fyeh!

  213. Rachael says:

    And you’re gonna take that from what you read in a 17-year-old boy’s phone??!!! OMG LOL

    But why should that surprise me, he takes advice from the outhouse too.

  214. colin black says:

    Alert alert he a baby daddy man

  215. Fogen needs to testify. What are y’all afraid of? Really?

  216. smokeegyrl says:

    it’s funny how West yappidy yaps and doesn’t let the State responds… and now he wants to involve all the Martin siblings… Omgosh… *vomit* hurling it to Florida in a Ice cream Cone..

  217. My Forehead Tho says:

    9:33 pm in Florida

  218. ChrisNY~Laurie says:

    And just because Trayvon told Rachael that he ha been in a fight and won does NOT mean it was recently. It could have been 3 years ago. She never what fight it was.

    • willisnewton says:

      disagree. West made a good point showing that TM and RJ had only recently gotten back in touch w one another.

      Yes this is disgusting but West has a point there.

      Is any of this relevant? I dont think so.

      but dont argue with good logic.

      • ChrisNY~Laurie says:

        I don’t think that West said Rachael told him when this fight took place, so West is assuming that since he told her recently that it happened recently. Even though they just recently started talking it doesn’t mean the was telling her about a fight that just happened. It could have been a week prior, six months prior or two yrs prior.

        • Malisha says:

          It also didn’t necessarily even happen. Cannot be offered for the truth of the statement, can it? Of course, Trayvon’s excited utterances on the night of his death are different: res gestae.

  219. Sophia33 says:

    Oh, so now Rachel knows his voice? But when it comes to the screams she doesn’t know his voice.

  220. Sabrina B. says:

    Several children have to do with what?

  221. boyd says:

    I know he’snot supposed to be allowed to enter it in… regardless does he not have to prove anything is true? was there really a fight?

  222. Sophia33 says:

    Long-winded. The defense just goes on and on and on.

    • Sabrina B. says:

      Trying to wear everyone down so that they won’t be prepared to deal with those two sequestration violations.

  223. ChrisNY~Laurie says:

    Ok, so, if Trayvon’s fighting is allowed in, then Fogen’s fighting should be allowed in. The shoving of a police officer and the shoving of his ex fiance and the kicking of her dog.

  224. Rachael says:

    AN ORCHESTRATED fight – it doesn’t say a THING about him attacking people out of the blue. Now sit down and STFU!!!!

    • Sophia33 says:

      Exactly! That’s my thought also.

    • ks says:

      It’s REALLY crazy when you consider that GZ was MMA training for years which involves a lot of organized fighting, grappling, etc.

    • anita says:

      i’ve had way more than a m== fu== nuff. icannot believe this shit!! i don’t even know wtf to say, FUCK JOHN GOOD. please ineed a short update from you guys, my husband is 100% on Trayvons side, he’s starting to lose patience with me. RANK SPECULATION I love it !! FUCK YOU WEST please encourage me once again. you guys are BEST

      • Malisha says:

        John Good, Jeremy, Jeremy’s wife (forget her name too), they were part of the little white clique that wanted to get the Blacks out of their lily white gated community. Taaffeyites. It all fits into place. THEY were running herd on Blacks and THEY were kicking people out of the HOA meetings who didn’t agree with their “sundown” policies and their scare tactics. Why the F wasn’t home-owner Ibrahim Rashada interviewed more often that Frank “Afrikaaner” Taaffe? It all fits into place.

  225. Sophia33 says:

    I can’t stand listening to West. He is a bumbling idiot and a racist.

    JN has lost controll of the courtroom.

  227. colin black says:

    What happened to non ambush an where the phluck R They pulling this shyte from???

    Trayvon knew how to fight so did Muhamid Ali Icould kill him at a distance with a gun.

    Trayvon didn’t attend a friggin fight gym 9 hours a week you pair of pot calling blacks not kettles but rats.

    Never seen such raceist tude towards Chils Murder Victim in my life .

    Is this the norm when raceism enters an American Court Room

    That’s a rhetorical question by the way

    HAND ON THE GUN??

    He is talking about the photo of a hand holding a gun???

    An yet speaking those words HNDS ON THE GUN IS DOG WHISTLEING TO ALL RACEISTS IN AMERICA

    Saying right now SEE I TOLD YOU

    Running away is not a physical mental and emotional state of aggression!

    • KateW says:

      Exactly. They keep forgetting he was not running to a confrontation. He was trying to get away from the killer and rightfully so. He is a child and being followed by the boogeyman and he had every right to get away.

  229. Nellie Nell says:

    The jury seen Trayvon’s physic while laying in the morgue!

  230. willisnewton says:

    West is about to get a smackdown.

  231. Rachael says:

    GZ sure didn’t seem tired and sore the day after his “life-threatening” fight for a soft guy. You’d think he’d be sore and limping all over the place.

  232. KateW says:

    How can he not be ready? didn’t he know yesterday they would be doing this proffer today? These defense clowns had all year to prepare this. They are basically winging it believe the jury will not convict their client based on not having enough evidence, that is why they tried to get the judge to acquit.

  233. EveryoneIsEntitledToTheirOpinion says:

    How can they get this in… Zimmerman is clearly violent where is his past? This is what justice is GZ produces nothing.. He is clearly the aggressor..

  234. Judy75201 says:

    Hahaha Don West is backing off of the gun. Asshat.

  235. Sleuth says:

    Why is The Wiester worried about his client’s 10:00 p.m. curfew?. Maybe he’s going to turn into a pumpkin………

    anyone notice how he is always schmoozing the clerk

    My oldest son was dating 3 women in college , one working in DC, one at Indiana U, one at UVA where he was a student. (yeah he;s an idiot) for 2 years. The Indiana girl he would drive to her school 1 weekend a month.

    Well, He got caught when one of them got a hold of his cell phone and saw the texts. 2 of them became friends and later dumped him

    . I told him to stop that crap. he got burned by the cell phoine

        how would you like it.

        • fauxmccoy says:

          and we usually figure these things out by experience just like he had. i know i didn’t learn anything from my parents’ mistakes, no matter what they said when i was a late teen/early adult. i don’t know many that do.

          we are all formed and shaped by our life experience and that is how we learn.

          now, if he was lying to them and telling them they had an ‘exclusive’ relationship, that would be a different issue.

    • willisnewton says:

      I dont like watching this but I hope the defense exhausts every angle they can DREAM up and when they are done the jury decides what happened.

      Then there will be no appeal.

      Two people met. One is dead and the other is a liar.

      the rest seems like a lot of bullshit to me, and I’m guessing the jury will agree.

    Where did that french app come from, and when?

      probably not a french app, but a secret app tht helps hide stuff. As we have seen, TM was a normal teen and had porn on his phone and bragged about things that related to a macho image.

      So what? Did he attack GZ with a porno shoot? No.

      did he challenge GZ to a three round fight that was judged by others? no

      etc

      I ended up with porn on my computer and lots of suggestive emails after a visit from my teenage nephew. It was curiosity on his part. We had a discussion about respecting women and how some of those photos were very disrespectful. He wasn’t too keen on the “talk” but it seemed to get through.

  266. Rachael says:

    It wasn’t guns he was trying to sell, it was pot – of course the defense would love that just as much.

    It is not a good thing that a kid has talk of fighting, drugs or porn on their phone, but it has NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT NIGHT!!!!

So how can they be sure this is Trayvon typing this information? And as Mantei is saying it is a family plan. This kid was a minor and none of it should be entered into evidence. The grown killer however, should have his history splashed all over the court.

      kate I readabout that today you are right and as I was reading it I thought it had to be the babymoma because a kid esp (BOY) don’t really talk like that

    my dad put a .22 revolver in my hands when i was 5 FFS!
    i had full access to it from the time i was 12 and he gave me a .38 when i graduated highschool at 17 with a bottle of jack.
    good thing i didn’t get myself killed.

    CNN (Piers) is showing the lit-up courthouse.

  273. boyd says:

    we’e been down this road before…. Play/slap fighting with friends is common in the city. Growing up in Philly and Trenton,NJ we did this all the time. Today they have cell phones so they can capture it. we could not do so in the 70’s.

    These old fogies (I’m 57) don’t understand today’s kids have taken it to another level with the cell phones and this MMA TV crap.

    None of my fiends that I know of are in jail. They are Lawyers, docters, engineers,businessmen and teachers

  274. sparger says:

    They are still in court? What is going on?

    • willisnewton says:

      a man named conner is giving a proffer for the judge as to what was on TM’s phone. Stuff about a three round fight and some bragging about getting a handgun or selling one

  275. Lynn says:

    Did the judge just say ‘the jury’s not here, it’s okay.’ If she’s that tired she needs to call it a day.

  276. KateW says:

    UGHHH about time, I cant take listening to this man’s voice any longer! Guy is up at bat.

  277. Sabrina B. says:

    Who’s hand was it?

  278. Rachael says:

    This is making me VERY angry!!!!!

  279. Sophia33 says:

    I went to the store and came back and West is still going?!

  280. groans says:

    This seems way beyond what JN said she needed, but she lets it go on and on and on and on.

  281. sighhhhh says:

    9pm with defense “PP” in everyone’s face. Just in case all that QQ’ing didn’t work.

  282. disappointed says:

    is this coming in? what did i miss? damn it.

  283. Sleuth says:

    Oh, now I see why the duh-fense was questioning Jahvaris about his other siblings and step-mom, Ms. Alicia. Sneaky old weasels.

  284. fauxmccoy says:

    oh god!!!!!!
    they might be step brothers.

  285. Sabrina B. says:

    Ahhh! the wandering black male penis.

  286. Allison says:

    What about the names of these other people supposedly in these conversations? They are being put out there for the public to know. I am sure it wont be hard to find out who some of them are, this could cause all kinds of problems for people that had nothing to do with anything except talking to their friend?

  287. tonya B says:

    isn’t it illegal to mention a minors name in court??????

  288. sparger says:

    I just got back. Did they decide about the animation?

  289. Judy75201 says:

    LOL fogen just nodded off for a sec.

  290. My Forehead Tho says:

    Oh, well damn. I would love to hear how everybody else’s conversation sounds after they just got into a fight. Clearly when Trayvon got into a fight, he knew when to stop.

  291. boyd says:

    old farts interpreting Miami teenage slang

    • Two sides to a story says:

      old WHITE farts interpreting BLACK Miami teenage slang, LOL! Got no rhythm. Got no rhyme.

    • Of course, Sir. Anything else is retarded, Sir. πŸ™‚

    • ay2z says:

      Remember the film from the 60’s, To Sir With Love? Sidny Poitier, Lulu and a rebelous class of lost white teenaged kids?

      The teachers had the same problem with their cockney teen slang, and Sidney Portier’s teacher character, gave them an example of his slang talk from when he was a kid in Jamaica (or one of the islands before he came to the USA).

      Same story, kids are the same no matter who, or where from.

  292. Puck says:

    So far they’ve outed several of Trayvon’s friends’ names.

  293. Dave says:

    If this is legit, Tray was talking about an arranged fight to settle differences with another guy under some sort of rules (“rounds”). That’s a lot different from attacking a random stranger.

  294. Sabrina B. says:

    He knows he is dragging this out to irritate the judge.

    • Cercando Luce says:

      …and by irritating her, she bends further over backwards so that the defense can’t say she was prejudiced against them.

  295. fauxmccoy says:

    omara telling west to act right and hold it together.

  296. anita says:

    the complete fucking racism is too much. No. Wait aminute this is par for the course, I do not believe one word of this shit is true.i hate west, damn racist is all he is . fuck him

  297. Beverly says:

    He is going after it again….Jerk

  298. PerfectlyImperfect says:

    This is taking forever!

  299. uhoh says:

    Manteei needs to move out of striking distance of West.

  300. gldgirl63 says:

    none of these txt msg… have anything to do with feb 26

  301. KateW says:

    The courts are backwards. Why is allowed to smear the victim but not the defendant.

  302. colin black says:

    West is westin time

    Slang for what you doin

    Tired an sore

    me to

    Bravado an a school scrap an sounds like a fair fight no weapons as in Scotland a square go no weapons involved.

  303. disappointed says:

    Okay these Crackers can not speak teen.

    • Mojo says:

      He’s attempting to speak black text speech. Should he throw in some dawgs, ights, naw means, homies, and fo shizzles to placate the crackas?

  304. RastaGirl says:

    Haven’t watched all day how did court go?!

    • Sabrina B. says:

      Still going.

    • colin black says:

      Well we heard a lot of crapola from a bed bound Black neighbour whom was besties with the zimms it seems.

      She prattled on about a truch an kept referring to the shooting

      As the crime scence

      We heard a lot a bout a vt animation in the dubert hearing based on what peoples ears said people were placed at.

      An foggagges stalking was reduced to a white arrow pointing an moveing alomg the dog path.

      Wait until we get to hear foggagges previous fighting talks an assaults on women an L E officers

      As opposed to schoolyard scraps an supervised fights at that sounds like.

  305. fauxmccoy says:

    oh connor is gonna speak in text talk now. lord help us all.

  306. Rachael says:

    Unless he had a text in there that said “I’m going to sucker punch a crackah tonight,” WTF does a fight have to do with what happened that night?
