I contend that the Prosecution did a not too bad job of supporting a charge of Manslaughter ... a charge that was not an option until this morning ... a charge the Defence was not afforded an opportunity to defend throughout the trial ... a charge that has the ability to appease the Black community if GZ is found guilty.  What is wrong with this picture?

Janet

Manslaughter has been on the table since the beginning of the trial.

Yes I made it. Don't even know where to start with all this. I was actually going back and watching the State's opening argument and comparing to the train wreck I just watched. What a difference. I was listening to it to listen to what they promised they were going to provide to the jury. WOW, did they miss the bar.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

It is appears the the Defence was aware from the getgo that the Manslaughter charge and the 2nd Degree Murder charge was a package deal.  This charge concerns me when I consider that the Prosecutor and Judge appear to be thisclose and ... it will be the Judge who will be instructing the jurors prior to deliberations.

Zimmerman Jury Will Be Allowed to Consider Lesser Manslaughter Charge
Published: July 11, 2013


In Florida, manslaughter is automatically included as a lesser charge in a second-degree murder case, unless the prosecution asks that it be omitted, and it did not. The defense sought unsuccessfully to strike the lesser offense, hoping to keep pressure on the prosecution to prove murder.

The prosecution stated that the jury is supposed to use common sense, OK.

How if Trayvon was being followed by Zimmerman how was it that TM couldn't have hoofed it away from the less than athletic Zimmerman? Unless there was a purposeful confrontation? In my opinion, if TM wanted to get away from GZ, it should not have taken much.

Also, the State is trying to portray GZ as some avenging vigilante. If that were the case and GZ had a gun, he would have blown TM away as he Martin came at him. Not waiting until you are in a scuffle and on the ground being beaten up. You lose the advantage of having a gun the second there is no space between you and your assailant.

Sorry, that's common sense.

I agree.  However ... until that NOT GUILTY of either charge is rendered by the Jury ... I remain concerned that common sense may not prevail ... may not be the determining factor in regards to the verdict.

Ex-Sanford police chief: Zimmerman probe ‘taken away from us’
Wed July 10, 2013


The George Zimmerman investigation was hijacked "in a number of ways" by outside forces, said the former police chief of Sanford, Florida.

Bill Lee, who testified Monday in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial, told CNN's George Howell in an exclusive interview that he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice. ...

Sorry to go against the majority and not trying to be argumentive, but I think GZ is guilty of manslaughter.

If he had stayed in his automobile there would have been no confrontation.  TM was not comitting any crime.
He was walking home and he was a minor.

The prosecutor is not gifted in closing statements, but he did get the point across that GZ was the aggressor.
 and became the aggressor the minute he exited his vehicle and went in pursuit of TM.

For self-defense defense,  it doesn't matter what happened previously.  It's what's happening right at the time of the shooting.  Wendy Murphy has been trying to explain this in vein all evening. 

We clearly see the injuries on George Zimmerman.  Self defense does not mean just fearing for your life but also great bodily harm.  A broken nose and head trauma. 

Clearly self-defense under the law as written in Florida.

With all due respect, I think a confrontation is not the problem.  GZ  had a right to confront some one who is walking through his neighborhood.  We are not privy to the actual exchange of their language.

I don't really know how you can tell who was the aggressor?   Who hit who first?  I'm not sure we can tell that. But it seems that the blood evidence shows that GZ had the bloody head?  No?

We have heard that TM was on top of GZ in the struggle?

There was a comment about GZ  being a wanna be MMA  fighter.  Get real people, my son and husband are true collegiate wrestlers with many of their friends going on to be MMA wrestlers/ fighters.  He was  in NO NO way an MMA fighter or training to be one.   I know many and if he was, one punch would have taken care of this situation.

Still saying, this jury has quite job ahead.  no winners here.

They better get ready in FL for those Black Panthers coming down.  Sorry to say.

You are allowed your opinion.

However, it is not illegal to get out of your vehicle and follow some one. This is exactly the point that the defense was asking the judge to say to the jury in the jury instruction, which she refused to.

Just an example ... near where I live where children play I say an individual who looked some what suspicious and struck me wrong. As I walked closer to them I noticed he was basically watching the children play. He then started to walk away as he saw me coming and I shouted out to them as to what he was doing. Obviously the individual was a perv and who knows what could have happened if I did not chase them away. Had I caught up to them and the individual had come at me in any manner I would have decked him. So who here would have convicted me of assault?

Here is the deal ... there is a fine line between protecting life and property. We always ask the question, what if we had only done this?

Following some one does not make some one an aggressor, its not illegal to do that. There is no law on the book that says it is. However, if some one confronts some one and threatens them. That is a different story.

I am sorry but GZ is hardly the hero type. IMO, if he was to follow the script that the prosecution laid out. GZ would have pulled his gun and shot TM the second that TM came at him. That is what tells me there is "reasonable" doubt to believe that TM did jump GZ.

And thus the reason why no defense or prosecution atty would ever allow me on a jury.

Could the following be the reason that both the judicial and the prosecutor did not want TM's texts submitted as evidence ... TM's texts that were protected with a DOUBLE-PASSWORD app?  Could it be that Trayvon's texts would portray a street-wise young man ... not an innocent child returned home from the store with a package of candy?

Breaking – Jury will not get to see Trayvon fighting texts
July 10, 2013 at 9:15 am


The Judge in the Zimmerman trial just ruled that the jury will not get to see numerous text messages on Trayvon Martin’s phone regarding his prowess at fighting, including texts as to how to punch someone in the nose and make them bleed.

Judge Rules Whether Trayvon’s Alleged Past Drug Use And School Suspension Permitted In Zimmerman Trial
May 28th, 2013


During a pre-trial hearing Tuesday afternoon, a Florida judge ruled that George Zimmerman’s defense team cannot use the late Trayvon Martin’s alleged prior marijuana use, school suspension, past fighting, personal text messages or pictures during its opening statement in next month’s high-profile second-degree murder trial.

This comes nearly a week after Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara made the cable news rounds, showing off new photographs taken from Martin’s cellphone, including a shot of a marijuana plant and an unidentified hand holding a gun:

O’Mara had also claimed his team had obtained text messages in which Martin talks about organized fighting. “He got mo hits cause in da 1st round. He had me on da ground nd I couldn’t do ntn,” reads one text from November 2011. ….

The judge also ruled that she might allow the fact that a small amount of marijuana was found in Martin’s blood the night of the shooting, but only after hearing from experts about the toxicology tests performed on the late teenager. ….

O’Mara also informed the court that his team had obtained video of three fights, two of which include Martin acting as referee. “There is certainly enough evidence,” he told the judge, “that’s going to suggest Trayvon Martin involved himself ongoingly with fighting with other people.”

I have been a Legal Insurrection fan for years and everyone should read the above link of a review of the Prosecutions closing argument today. It is simply brilliant and I could not have agreed more.

State’s Closing Argument: Two Hours of Raising Doubthttp://legalinsurrection.com/2013/07/states-closing-argument-expert-analysis/

Today, the State presented their closing argument to the jury in the matter of Florida v. Zimmerman. After 14 months of investigation and discovery, weeks of pre-trial hearings, weeks more of trial testimony, and the expenditure of taxpayer money on the order of a million dollars, this was it–this is where the State would close the deal and deliver their compelling narrative of guilt to the jury.

What the jury got was not a compelling narrative of guilt, however, but a rambling monologue of isolated bits of circumstantial evidence, much of which was consistent with–and even supportive of–the defense’s “self-defense” theory of the case.

The State’s got nothing.

Reversible Error in Zimmerman Before We Even Get a Verdict?
July 11th, 2013 - 9:28 am

In presiding over the trial of George Zimmerman, who is accused of murdering Trayvon Martin, Judge Debra Nelson has made some awful rulings — none worse than failing to direct a verdict of acquittal on the preposterous second-degree “depraved mind” murder charge. The state’s evidence that Zimmerman had the necessary criminal intent is non-existent, much less sufficient to meet the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard. Compelling evidence, moreover, establishes that Zimmerman acted in self-defense, a claim the state has not come close to refuting. (See Andrew Branca’s comprehensive summary here.)

Wednesday morning provided a snapshot of Judge Nelson’s style: her peremptory decision to exclude exculpatory evidence recovered from Martin’s cellphone — a ruling that in and of itself could be reversible error if the state is able to steamroll the jury into convicting Zimmerman.

This will be the hard part.  Unless someone dies a natural death, we have a tendency to look for who could have saved them or who is responsible.  In the case of our loved ones dying, often we even ask ourselves, should I have done more?  And in the case of a shooting death, that concept is heightened.  This IMO will be the tough part for the jury.  Everyone is sorry Martin died.  No matter what side of the court room you sit on.  The jury has an incredible task before it -- to separate that which comes natural from what they will perceive as the law.  It will be a daunting task.

Zimmerman murder trial judge denies defense request on jury instruction
Thursday, July 11, 2013


SANFORD, Florida (Reuters) - The judge presiding over the murder trial of George Zimmerman denied a defense request on Thursday that jurors be instructed the neighborhood watch volunteer did nothing illegal in deciding to follow Trayvon Martin, before the encounter in which he shot and killed the unarmed black teenager.

"I am not giving that instruction," Seminole County Judge Debra Nelson told Zimmerman defense lawyer Don West, who said no Florida law makes it illegal to follow somebody and that the proposed jury instruction was key to Zimmerman's self-defense case.

Ex-Sanford police chief: Zimmerman probe ‘taken away from us’
Wed July 10, 2013


The George Zimmerman investigation was hijacked "in a number of ways" by outside forces, said the former police chief of Sanford, Florida.

Bill Lee, who testified Monday in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial, told CNN's George Howell in an exclusive interview that he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice. ...

This is why this is the bizzaro case. These are the actions of the defense playing upon people's sympathies. WHERE IS THE EVIDENSE!!! The State has none and they are playing to the emotions of 6 females. They would never be pulling this BS had there been one male on the jury. Please tell me all you females that you really are not 100% ruled by emotion and not some facts. That is what this prosecution is banking on. Personally, I find it rather demeaning and insulting.

Or special prosecutor Angela Corey certifying a 12 year old as an adult?  There was an attempt to charge GZ with "child abuse" of a 17 year old, but Angela Corey saw fit for this?

This petition ran for almost a year and a half. I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all who signed. State Attorney Angela Corey and the rest of the SAO refused to budge on reversing their decision to try him as an adult. Fortunately Cristian now has a strong team of private attorneys working hard to defend him. This case is now in their hands. Please keep Cristian in your thoughts as his case goes on to trial.

Guy used between 6-8, maybe 10 times the word child to refer to TM.

Just food for thought as the State has asked us all to use our common sense. Who thinks that Travon Martin would have thought it an insult to refer to him as a child when he was alive?

17 years old is hardly a child. Had he ever committed a crime at that age, he would have been charged as an adult.

Anticipating backlash from the Black community if GZ is acquitted … anticipating personal risk if GZ is acquitted … could it be that that the jury will render a guilty verdict on the manslaughter charge. Think about it. Judge Nelson will be instructing the jury prior to deliberations … Judge Nelson who appears to be thisclose with the Prosecution.


Zimmerman Jury Will Be Allowed to Consider Lesser Manslaughter Charge
Published: July 11, 2013


In Florida, manslaughter is automatically included as a lesser charge in a second-degree murder case, unless the prosecution asks that it be omitted, and it did not. The defense sought unsuccessfully to strike the lesser offense, hoping to keep pressure on the prosecution to prove murder. …

A Could it be that the State’s closing statements that did not support a 2nd Degree Murder charge were all about making a case for the manslaughter charge? Could the fall back manslaughter option for the jury to consider have been the State’s strategy from the getgo?  In other words ... GZ must not be acquitted!!  Until the words "Not Guilty" on both charges on read ... I remain concerned.

State’s Closing Argument: Two Hours of Raising Doubt
Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 8:10pm


What the jury got was not a compelling narrative of guilt, however, but a rambling monologue of isolated bits of circumstantial evidence, much of which was consistent with–and even supportive of–the defense’s “self-defense” theory of the case.

If the jury does their job and actually follows the law, there will be an acquittal. However, if the allow their emotions to rule the day, GZ will be convicted of manslaughter. Second degree murder will not be a factor and should never have been allowed to have been charged in the first place. By doing so it enabled the State to do the lesser charge of manslaughter.

I like many after the Casey Anthony case can probably never read or trust a Florida jury.

George Zimmerman would never have been arrested if it had not been for “higher ups” who were h— bent on appeasing the Black community. Was pressure/intimidation applied to the Prosecution and Judiciary in the GZ trial to assure that there is not an acquittal?  Will the Judge's instructions to the jury prior to deliberations reveal a bias?

Zimmerman Jury Will Be Allowed to Consider Lesser Manslaughter Charge
Published: July 11, 201

Manslaughter has a lower threshold for prosecutors to prove and is defined in Florida as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice — including the result of an accident or other act in which the person does not have the mental state to commit a murder.

Though Mr. Zimmerman could receive a sentence of life in prison if he is convicted of murder, the maximum penalty in Florida for manslaughter with a deadly weapon is 30 years.

EVIDENCE from the cell phone belonging to this 17 year old "CHILD" named Trayvon Martin ... the cell phone with a DOUBLE-PASSWORD APP.  The judge denied the request of the Defence to allow this EVIDENCE to be presented to the jury.

Thanks to the Prosecution and the Judicial ... in deliberations the jurors will be left with the impression that TM was an innocent CHILD on his way home following a purchase of Skittles when the encounter with GZ occurred.

Breaking – Jury will not get to see Trayvon fighting texts
July 10, 2013 at 9:15 am

Judge Rules Whether Trayvon’s Alleged Past Drug Use And School Suspension Permitted In Zimmerman Trial
May 28th, 2013


During a pre-trial hearing Tuesday afternoon, a Florida judge ruled that George Zimmerman’s defense team cannot use the late Trayvon Martin’s alleged prior marijuana use, school suspension, past fighting, personal text messages or pictures during its opening statement in next month’s high-profile second-degree murder trial.

This comes nearly a week after Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara made the cable news rounds, showing off new photographs taken from Martin’s cellphone, including a shot of a marijuana plant and an unidentified hand holding a gun:

O’Mara had also claimed his team had obtained text messages in which Martin talks about organized fighting. “He got mo hits cause in da 1st round. He had me on da ground nd I couldn’t do ntn,” reads one text from November 2011. ….

The judge also ruled that she might allow the fact that a small amount of marijuana was found in Martin’s blood the night of the shooting, but only after hearing from experts about the toxicology tests performed on the late teenager. ….

O’Mara also informed the court that his team had obtained video of three fights, two of which include Martin acting as referee. “There is certainly enough evidence,” he told the judge, “that’s going to suggest Trayvon Martin involved himself ongoingly with fighting with other people.”

More Than a Bag of Skittles - Trayvon Martin and Purple Drank


<snipped.

Purple Drank or Lean is a cocktail that is created by mixing Robitussin or other over-the-counter cough medicines with, you guessed it, Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Juice, the flavor of tea Trayvon Martin was carrying that night.

Purple Drank also goes by other street names such as sizzurp, lean, syrup, sip sip, drank, barre, purple jelly and Texas tea.  It has opiate like effects.  Some of its side effects include confusion, agitation, and hallucinations among others.

Geraldo Rivera: Jury would have shot Trayvon ‘a lot sooner than George Zimmerman
July 12, 2013


Fox News host Geraldo Rivera on Friday asserted that prosecutors in Florida had been pressured by MSNBC host Al Sharpton and “race politics” to bring a weak case against former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. .....

“This was a case brought because of political pressure — race politics in this country,” the Fox News host opined. “I hate to say it. I hold the Rev. Al Sharpton in much higher regard than many of my colleagues… But I strongly believe that the Rev. Al is the catalyst behind murder two charge six weeks after the incident.”

“I believe the original prosecutor got it right,” he continued. “I think it is a self-defense situation, a classic self defense when you strip it of all of the trappings.”

George Zimmerman has a White father and a Hispanic mother.  CNN and many Blacks refer to him as a "White Hispanic".

Barack Obama's father is Black and his mother is White.  However ... CNN and Blacks refer to him as "Black" ... not "White Black".  Why?

Nevertheless ... would "American" not suffice?

'Raise your voice, not your hands,' cops urge as Zimmerman verdict looms
July 10, 2013


Zimmerman is a white Hispanic who is on trial for last year's shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a black teen, in Sanford city. Sanford is in Seminole County.

He is charged with second-degree murder, and says he acted in self-defense. Prosecutors are arguing he profiled the teen.

Geraldo Rivera Says Al Sharpton And ‘Race Politics’ Forced Florida To Pursue ‘Weak’ Murder Two Case Against George Zimmerman in Death of Trayvon Martin

Quote
WOW … not about race eh?

Fox News analyst Geraldo Rivera is never at a loss for words or creating controversy. Rivera stated this morning on Fox & Friends that the second degree murder case against George Zimmerman was created by Al Sharpton and “race politics”. It was that racial agitation and race baiting by Sharpton that fanned the flames it create the scenario why such a weak murder case was brought against Zimmerman (see VIDEO). From the outset MSNBC created a false narrative that Zimmerman was a racist, when the doctored the 911 tapes. Rivera said that he believed that the first prosecutor got it right and that what happened that night between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was self defense.

But what might have been the biggest eye opening comment from Rivera was not about race, but when he said … “I see it a little differently, I see those six ladies putting themselves on that rainy night  in that housing complex that has just been burglarized by 3 or 4 different groups of black youngsters from the adjacent community. Its a dark night, a 6’2″ hoodie wearing stranger is in the immediate housing community. How would the ladies of that jury reacted? I submit that if they were armed they would have shot and killed Trayvon Martin a lot sooner than George Zimmerman did.”

I'm heading out for a couple of hours.   ::jeep3::   ::bee::

Enjoy!
Yes, Muffy, enjoy!

Just heard on a news report that some Black Panthers are headed to Florida.  Oh bother!

 ::justice2nj2::

Good Afternoon Monkeys.

If Zimmerman is not sentenced to time, that town will burn. Sad to say but there will be trouble.

Oh no, its ok. I emailed the Black Panthers a copy of the Sheriffs Office PSA and told them to raise their voices, not their night sticks and their racism. ;-)

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2013/07/09/broward-county-sheriffs-office-released-video-asking-the-public-not-to-riot-in-the-wake-of-the-george-zimmerman-murder-verdict-raise-your-voice-not-your-hands/

Also, maybe this is what has to happen. Not saying I want it to, but I am sick and tired of law abiding America and the police, politicians, etc. of cowering down to reverse racism and minorities who break the law. The Sanford police and the Sheriffs office had a presser following today's closing asking for peace and respecting the process. Did we burn down the court house after the Casey Anthony acquittal? Sorry, but Casey Anthony was more guilty x 100 than George Zimmerman and Caylee Anthony was more innocent that Trayvon by infinity. Caylee was a child. Trayvon was a grown young man. 

The trouble seems to come from outside of Sanford itself.

I thought one of the telling interviews was the one when O'Mara went of the prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda and questioned his Discovery perspective. He is more used to running against public defenders, OUCH!!!

The pictures show a lot of white protesters. How fast can they run if it is Not Guilty?
They will be beaten and/or killed with the sticks from their own signs. And then someone will go through their pockets.

Red, I live in South Carolina and here in the south tension has been thick enough to cut with a knife for quite a while. One of my best friends and neighbor is black and we have discussed the tensions in our small little town of 2500 . There is nothing specific that one can point out but something is brewing. Home invasions are on the rise and folks are scared to be outside.

Everyone is tired of the bowing down. Whites in this area are not the racist, it is the other way around.

Zimmerman trial draws dozens to courthouse, Goldsboro
July 12, 2013


(2 pg. article)

SANFORD — About 60 people — not including the media — have been gathered for hours outside the Seminole County criminal courthouse now awaiting the verdict in the George Zimmerman second-degree murder trial.

The jury launched into deliberations in the high-profile case at 2:30 this afternoon.

At 6 p.m., Seminole Circuit Judge Debra Nelson announced that jurors wanted to end deliberations for the day and would begin again Saturday at 9 a.m.

This afternoon and evening, sign-wavers and others gathered peacefully near a fountain outside the courthouse in an area designated for people to express themselves.

About five miles away at the Goldsboro Welcome Center, about 30 people waited for the verdict and discussing the case of Zimmerman, 29, who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to death in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012.
 ::snipping3::
The crowd in both places was mostly calm. A little before 5 p.m., Seminole County deputies briefly interviewed a man who said he works for a Tampa radio show and who engaged in a short yelling match with protesters at the courthouse. He was allowed to return to the group.

Earlier, Chimurenga Waller of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement showed up with a megaphone but stopped using it at the request of deputies.

Waller was using the device to shout "uhuru'' — Swahili for freedom.

"We come in peace. We're emphasizing peace, but we also understand the issues can't be swept under the rug. We're here to support the people of Sanford ... Even after this case is over our work is just beginning," said James Evans Muhammad, minister of education for the New Black Panther Party.

Defense Attorney Mark O’Mara Opens Up About Influence of Race & Politics in Zimmerman Case
Posted by Mandy Nagy

O’Mara on the issue of civil rights: “Get your crosshairs off George Zimmerman and I will join you.”

In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Martin Savidge, Mark O’Mara – defense attorney for George Zimmerman – opens up and answers some difficult questions, now that the case has gone to the jury.  Below are some of the highlights.

Social media 'blackout' buzz as jury gets Trayvon Martin case
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram full of opinions, protest
s
July 13, 2013

 ::snipping3::
In recent days, hundreds of thousands of people have been using #Blackout4Trayvon, #JusticeForTrayvon and other hashtags on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to post opinions and arguments and organize rallies and protests. On Facebook, Justice for Trayvon Martin has more than 200,000 likes.

Some have replaced their profile photos on Facebook with a black square or silhouettes depicting Martin in a hoodie. The 17-year-old was wearing a hoodie when he was shot and killed by Zimmerman in February 2012. Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense.

One online protest that has gotten more than 50,000 page views for a national "day of absence." It urges: "If Zimmerman walks, the day after the verdict we are calling for a day of absence, a total national blackout. Call in sick and tired. Call in angry, call in crazy. But call in."

Others have been advocating other "nonviolent action." One person wrote: "Spread the word. We must demonstrate with nonviolent action whether or not justice prevails for Trayvon Martin's murder."

In Chicago, some are using the case to voice their frustration that people aren't more concerned about the heavy toll of killings in the city.

A man from the North Side wrote, in a large black square on his Facebook page: "200 plus people killed already in Chicago (2013) yet we decide to BLACKOUT our profile pics for someone from Florida whom half of us can't even spell his name correctly. RIP Trayvon."

Zimmerman's supporters have taken to social media too.

A Facebook page titled "George Zimmerman is Innocent" has more than 10,000 likes. "God, please see to it that the Jury on this case see the truth and realize that George Zimmerman is Innocent," a posting on the page reads.

Mark O'Mara takes the high road when it comes to any criticism of the Judge.  Why?

1.  Judge Nelson denied crucial text evidence that could have gone a long way to squash the Prosecution's assertion that TM was an innocent child who was walking home after the purchase of candy when he encountered big bad wannabe detective GZ.

2.  The judge denied the Defence's request to take the Manslaughter charge off the table.  Considering the Prosecution failed to present a convincing 2nd Degree Murder case ... the Manslaughter charge may be a safe fall back option for the jury in the rendering of a verdict ... the jury that may be feeling the heat of the Black community that would explode if GZ was acquitted.

Aside from the portion regarding the Judge ... I did appreciate the following Martin Savidge interview with Mark O’Mara in its entirety.

Excellent point Sister.
However, if a white guy had taken Shaniya and raped and murdered her, the story might b different. They never march or carry on when the perp is also black. And why is that? Justice should not matter what color.

The Manslaughter charge has always been packaged with a 2nd Degree Murder charge.  However ... the Defence did request that a Manslaughter be dropped as an option but ... Judge Nelson denied the request.

Zimmerman Jury Will Be Allowed to Consider Lesser Manslaughter Charge
Published: July 11, 2013


In Florida, manslaughter is automatically included as a lesser charge in a second-degree murder case, unless the prosecution asks that it be omitted, and it did not. The defense sought unsuccessfully to strike the lesser offense, hoping to keep pressure on the prosecution to prove murder. …

I so phrased that question wrong, and I remember Denny like it was yesterday...I also meant to say death. I may be wrong but IIRC it was a teenager, 15 0r 16, killed on drive by shooting, but wrt Denny being the first victim you are prolly right, because that was the infamous corner where the shit the fan , Normandy and France IIRC.

State Attorney Angela Corey fires information techonology director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case
July 13, 2013

(http://i.imgur.com/Zowzdm3.jpg)
Associated Press
Ben Kruidbos, an IT worker from the state attorney's office, testifies during a hearing in the George Zimmerman case in Sanford on June 6.

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

In an interview Friday, Kruidbos denied the allegations in the letter, which was written by Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office.

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

“I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being.”
His attorney Wesley White — who resigned from the State Attorney’s Office in December and is a critic of Corey — said the firing was aimed at sending a message to office employees “that if they feel like there is wrongdoing,” they should not disclose it or seek legal guidance from a private attorney.

“If they do speak to an attorney, then they are dead,” he said. “The State Attorney’s Office will do whatever is necessary to not only terminate them, but destroy their reputations in the process
 ::snipping3::
n January, he used computer software technology to extract photographs and text messages from the source file in Martin’s cellphone. Kruidbos was able to recover more information than the Florida Department of Law Enforcement obtained previously.

GETTING LEGAL ADVICE

Kruidbos said he became concerned that lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda might not have turned over Kruidbos’ report to defense attorneys. Kruidbos asked White in April for legal advice and described some contents of his report such as a photo of an African-American hand holding a gun, a photo of a plant resembling marijuana, and a text message referring to a gun transaction.

White then contacted one of Zimmerman’s attorneys and learned the defense had not received the report generated by Kruidbos. The defense did receive the source file from the cellphone and used its own experts to extract data.

Last month, Zimmerman’s attorneys subpoenaed both White and Kruidbos during a pretrial hearing on their motion seeking sanctions against prosecutors. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson deferred a ruling until after the trial.

Before Kruidbos’ name surfaced in the Martin trial proceedings, he received a pay raise for “meritorious performance,” according to a document dated May 16 in his personnel file.

But the dismissal letter written by Peek contends he did his job poorly as information technology director and said he should have asked someone in the office about his concerns regarding the Martin case.

State Attorney Angela Corey fires information techonology director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case
July 13, 2013

(http://i.imgur.com/Zowzdm3.jpg)
Associated Press
Ben Kruidbos, an IT worker from the state attorney's office, testifies during a hearing in the George Zimmerman case in Sanford on June 6.

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

In an interview Friday, Kruidbos denied the allegations in the letter, which was written by Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office.

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

“I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being.”
His attorney Wesley White — who resigned from the State Attorney’s Office in December and is a critic of Corey — said the firing was aimed at sending a message to office employees “that if they feel like there is wrongdoing,” they should not disclose it or seek legal guidance from a private attorney.

“If they do speak to an attorney, then they are dead,” he said. “The State Attorney’s Office will do whatever is necessary to not only terminate them, but destroy their reputations in the process
 ::snipping3::
n January, he used computer software technology to extract photographs and text messages from the source file in Martin’s cellphone. Kruidbos was able to recover more information than the Florida Department of Law Enforcement obtained previously.

GETTING LEGAL ADVICE

Kruidbos said he became concerned that lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda might not have turned over Kruidbos’ report to defense attorneys. Kruidbos asked White in April for legal advice and described some contents of his report such as a photo of an African-American hand holding a gun, a photo of a plant resembling marijuana, and a text message referring to a gun transaction.

White then contacted one of Zimmerman’s attorneys and learned the defense had not received the report generated by Kruidbos. The defense did receive the source file from the cellphone and used its own experts to extract data.

Last month, Zimmerman’s attorneys subpoenaed both White and Kruidbos during a pretrial hearing on their motion seeking sanctions against prosecutors. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson deferred a ruling until after the trial.

Before Kruidbos’ name surfaced in the Martin trial proceedings, he received a pay raise for “meritorious performance,” according to a document dated May 16 in his personnel file.

But the dismissal letter written by Peek contends he did his job poorly as information technology director and said he should have asked someone in the office about his concerns regarding the Martin case.

Ben Kruidbos and former Police Chief Bill Lee are both men of integrity.  Doing right is not always easy when there are personal consequences but it is always right.

Report: Teen arrested over Zimmerman tweet
July 13, 2013

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after authorities say he tweeted out a threat to commit a "mass homicide" if George Zimmerman is found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin, according to the Lake County News-Sun.

The since-deleted tweet, which came from @mark12394995, read “If Zimmmerman free imma shoot everybody in Zion [Illinois] causing a mass homicide, and ill get away wit it just like Zimmerman.”

The teen, whose name was not released, was charged with disorderly conduct, although deputies told the News-Sun that there was no credibility to the threat.

State Attorney Angela Corey fires information techonology director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case
July 13, 2013

Associated Press
Ben Kruidbos, an IT worker from the state attorney's office, testifies during a hearing in the George Zimmerman case in Sanford on June 6.

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

In an interview Friday, Kruidbos denied the allegations in the letter, which was written by Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office.

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

“I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being.”
His attorney Wesley White — who resigned from the State Attorney’s Office in December and is a critic of Corey — said the firing was aimed at sending a message to office employees “that if they feel like there is wrongdoing,” they should not disclose it or seek legal guidance from a private attorney.

“If they do speak to an attorney, then they are dead,” he said. “The State Attorney’s Office will do whatever is necessary to not only terminate them, but destroy their reputations in the process
 ::snipping3::
n January, he used computer software technology to extract photographs and text messages from the source file in Martin’s cellphone. Kruidbos was able to recover more information than the Florida Department of Law Enforcement obtained previously.

GETTING LEGAL ADVICE

Kruidbos said he became concerned that lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda might not have turned over Kruidbos’ report to defense attorneys. Kruidbos asked White in April for legal advice and described some contents of his report such as a photo of an African-American hand holding a gun, a photo of a plant resembling marijuana, and a text message referring to a gun transaction.

White then contacted one of Zimmerman’s attorneys and learned the defense had not received the report generated by Kruidbos. The defense did receive the source file from the cellphone and used its own experts to extract data.

Last month, Zimmerman’s attorneys subpoenaed both White and Kruidbos during a pretrial hearing on their motion seeking sanctions against prosecutors. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson deferred a ruling until after the trial.

Before Kruidbos’ name surfaced in the Martin trial proceedings, he received a pay raise for “meritorious performance,” according to a document dated May 16 in his personnel file.

But the dismissal letter written by Peek contends he did his job poorly as information technology director and said he should have asked someone in the office about his concerns regarding the Martin case.

Ben Kruidbos and former Police Chief Bill Lee are both men of integrity.  Doing right is not always easy when there are personal consequences but it is always right.

 ::MonkeyEek:: ::MonkeyHaHa::  When I clicked on the link above, it's a vid about Rhihanna going shopping in a swimsuit. 

The sad truth of this is only one side is going to respect the juries decision. If the jury finds GZ guilty of something, those supporting Zimmerman or support "self-defense" laws will voice their opinion, question the jury for using emotion, rather than evidence and the law ... then they will go away. You will hear those who support TM cheer like what was done after OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson.

However, if GZ is found not guilty I believe those against GZ and a pro-TM will cause trouble. Especially those that come to Sanford, FL from outside the area.

It is all very sad because IMO, this plays into the hands of those who like having races pitted against one another and those who make money off it. 

I have said from the outset that had the roles been reversed and GZ was killed ... I think TM could have used the same "self defense" defense.

Agreed. I said the same things when idiots tried to profit off the death of Trayvon Martin and were selling a hoodie with a bulls-eye on it. Thankfully it was pulled immediately, but that certainly did not stop the Black Panthers from providing their own brand of idiocy toward GZ.

George Zimmerman Murder Trial “Race Politics” … State Attorney Angela Corey Fires IT Director Ben Kruidbos Who Raised Concerns in Trayvon Martin Case about Evidence Discovery

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2013/07/13/george-zimmerman-murder-trial-race-politics-state-attorney-angela-corey-fires-it-director-ben-kruidbos-who-raised-concerns-in-trayvon-martin-case-about-evidence-discovery/

Quote
Isn’t justice supposed to be separate from politics? How about “race politics”? Not in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin

State Attorney Angela Corey has fired Ben Kruidbos, the IT director for the State of Florida, who raised concerns in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Last month Ben Kruidbos testified about his concerns that the prosecution did not provide information to the George Zimmerman defense team. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara has commented on numerous occasions and expressed his concern over the actions of the prosecution handing over information in a timely and proper manner.  So the obvious question that needs to be asked, why now? What a vengeful and bias effort on the part of Angela Corey. Some one does the right thing and makes mention of possible misconduct by the prosecution and for his efforts, he is fired
.
 ::snipping3::

Also included in post is video of Ben Kruidbos testifying, the words that got him fired.

Don't forget that Sanford police chief Bill Lee was also fired for not arresting Zimmerman.

The State could care less about justice in this case, they want Zimmerman to be their sacrificial lamb to appease those that would holler racism.

And we were always told that Justice was supposed to be blind.

Ex-Sanford police chief: Zimmerman probe 'taken away from us'
July 11, 2013


<snipped>

"I upheld my oath," Lee said. "I'm happy that at the end of the day I can walk away with my integrity."

One of his greatest regrets, he said, is that the Zimmerman investigation ultimately shattered his childhood dream to be police chief of the community where he was raised.

"It's a dream of a vision that is going to be unrealized," he said. "I'm at peace with it on most days. I'm a man of faith. But it stings.

State Attorney Angela Corey fires information techonology director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case
July 13, 2013


<snipped>

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

“I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being".

George Zimmerman Murder Trial “Race Politics” … State Attorney Angela Corey Fires IT Director Ben Kruidbos Who Raised Concerns in Trayvon Martin Case about Evidence Discovery

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2013/07/13/george-zimmerman-murder-trial-race-politics-state-attorney-angela-corey-fires-it-director-ben-kruidbos-who-raised-concerns-in-trayvon-martin-case-about-evidence-discovery/

Quote
Isn’t justice supposed to be separate from politics? How about “race politics”? Not in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin

State Attorney Angela Corey has fired Ben Kruidbos, the IT director for the State of Florida, who raised concerns in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Last month Ben Kruidbos testified about his concerns that the prosecution did not provide information to the George Zimmerman defense team. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara has commented on numerous occasions and expressed his concern over the actions of the prosecution handing over information in a timely and proper manner.  So the obvious question that needs to be asked, why now? What a vengeful and bias effort on the part of Angela Corey. Some one does the right thing and makes mention of possible misconduct by the prosecution and for his efforts, he is fired
.
 ::snipping3::

Also included in post is video of Ben Kruidbos testifying, the words that got him fired.

Don't forget that Sanford police chief Bill Lee was also fired for not arresting Zimmerman.
http://scaredmonkeys.com/2013/07/11/justice-ex-sanford-police-chief-bill-lee-says-he-was-pressured-by-city-officials-to-arrest-george-zimmerman-in-death-of-trayvon-martin-even-though-he-already-cleared-him-of-any-wrongdoing/

The State could care less about justice in this case, they want Zimmerman to be their sacrificial lamb to appease those that would holler racism.

And we were always told that Justice was supposed to be blind.

Could it be that an inevitable Black backlash if GZ is acquitted ... an inevitable Black backlash that could put jurors at risk ... will be the motivating factor for jurors to take advantage of the Manslaughter option?  I am concerned that Black appeasement is going to win at the end of the day ... Black appeasement that implies GZ will not be returning to his family.

Is there a SM poll?

Zimmerman jury allowed to consider manslaughter conviction
Murder trial in closing arguments after key ruling
The Associated Press Posted: Jul 11, 2013


The jury in the George Zimmerman trial was given the option Thursday of convicting the former neighborhood watch captain on the lesser charge of manslaughter in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Because of the judge's ruling, the six jurors now have three options when they start deliberations as early as Friday: Guilty of second-degree murder, guilty of manslaughter and not guilty.

To win a second-degree murder conviction, prosecutors must prove Zimmerman showed ill will, hatred or spite — a burden the defence has argued the state failed to meet. To get a manslaughter conviction, prosecutors must show only that Zimmerman killed without lawful justification.

If there is an acquitted ... it would not be only GZ whose life on the outside would be changed forever.  It makes sense that the Prosecution team and Jurors would be a target of the "crazies" that Defense Attorney Mark O'Mara is referring to.

Sadly ... it is my contention that justice will not prevail for GZ. The scales do not  appear to balance.  I hope I am wrong.

Friday, July 12, 2013


In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Martin Savidge, Mark O’Mara – defense attorney for George Zimmerman – opens up and answers some difficult questions, now that the case has gone to the jury.  Below are some of the highlights.

<snipped>

Do you think that George Zimmerman, your client, if he’s acquitted, what kind of life will he have?

“Not a good one.  I think he has to live mostly in hiding, he’s got to be able to protect himself from that periphery that still believe he’s some racist murderer or acted in a bad way, and that you don’t know who they are, you don’t know if they’re down the street or you don’t know if they’re across the country.  I think that he’s probably concerned about living still in central Florida and never having a normal life.

His life will never be the same?

“Never, ever, ever be the same.”

Never, like, be able to go to work or have a regular job?

“I don’t know how he gets a job where he’s out in public without having the fear of somebody finding out where he works.”

And you think some will continue to want to hunt him, even if a jury says ‘you are not guilty.

“Well we know there are crazies out there, I mean I know there are people who don’t listen to common sense and who act irrationally.  I can show you a couple dozen emails from people who are vicious in their hatred for George Zimmerman, and for me.  It’s absurd.  But they’re there.  So I don’t know which is the one who’s going to walk down the street the same time George does.  They know what he looks like, he doesn’t know what they look like.”

@Its_jus_Z Manslaughter is not a 10-20-Life charge, but firearm finding would increase max sentence from 15 years to 30 years.

Jamie Fox is calling for riots etc if GZ walks. He is about as racists as they come.
Decent folks won't riot and destroy. It is the pants on the ground hoodlums who will do it.  Jmo..the hard workers have more sense jmo again

Link?  I'm not finding anything about Jamie Foxx calling for riots.  I do see where he supports Trayvon and has been wearing a t-shirt for the past couple years supporting Trayvon but nothing about riots?

Klaas..it was on Facebook. The link is to "before it's news" and he was saying this while accepting an award from BET. He had a shirt with a picture of Trayvon Martin on it .
Sorry I don't know how to bring it over here from my ipad. I can email u he article if u want.

I attempted to find a Youtube video of Jamie Foxx's acceptance speech but it was all in vain.

@Medusausi That's up to the judge. There would be a delay for lawyers for both sides to prepare argument.

 Jeff Weiner ‏@JeffWeinerOS 7m
@Its_jus_Z There is a max for manslaughter, 30 years. Extremely unlikely no prison with manslaughter conviction.

 Jeff Weiner ‏@JeffWeinerOS 7m
@Its_jus_Z Yes, time served, though GZ was out on bond for most of pretrial phase. There's also gain time (good behavior).

 Jeff Weiner ‏@JeffWeinerOS 10m
@Its_jus_Z If the jury decides GZ used a firearm, max is 30. Because manslaughter's not 10-20-Life, there's no minimum mandatory.

It has grown so silent.  There is such a turmoil going on within my spirit.
There will be those who rejoice at the verdict and others will walk away feeling justice has not prevailed.

I had made a commitment to myself after Caylee's injustice (IMO), I would not become so involved in a case again.  Part of my spirit was so broken.  But here I am again, praying that right comes down on the side of justice.  I'm not sure I know what that means anymore for as in this case . . . there are no winners.  Lives have been destroyed, never to be the same again.  The scars will forever be carried within the spirits of all.

I believe the only thing I can hope for is no matter the verdict, people treat each other with respect and decency.  I wonder, is that too much to ask for in today's society.

GRAND JURY?

Defense Attorney Mark O’Mara Opens Up About Influence of Race & Politics in Zimmerman Case
Friday, July 12, 2013 at 6:43pm


In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Martin Savidge, Mark O’Mara – defense attorney for George Zimmerman – opens up and answers some difficult questions, now that the case has gone to the jury.  Below are some of the highlights.

How much of this was politics?

“It’s guesswork on my behalf but if I enter into this formula an element, an ingredient, of politics, a lot more makes sense. A lot more about the way this was handled early on, the way it was turned into a racial event when seemingly and now positively it wasn’t. When a special prosecutor is brought in when there doesn’t seem to be any reason why [Florida State Attorney] Norm Wolfinger as a sitting prosecutor, perfect opportunity to handle this case, matter of fact I’ve deposed three of his assistants who were busting their butts on this case, so they were ready to go forward and we had a grand jury set. So when a special prosecutor comes in then waives a grand jury and then files charges that most good legal analysts, including Alan Dershowitz, say that’s an abomination, you have to wonder if there’s not some outside influence in pressuring decisions.

I have to say I am disgusted by the death threats and threats of violence by those on Twitter and other social networking web sites. I think it is reprehensible, especially in such a case like this that has such racial over tones.  One has to wonder how this is allowed. This is not free speech, no different than yelling fire in a movie theatre is. These keyboard cowards need to be arrested and made an example out of. One would think at the very least their accounts would be terminated for violations of TOS.

(http://scaredmonkeys.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Zimmerman_threats_twitter2-300x114.png)

Really? We are allowed to make such threats and say we should attack anyone who looks like GZ as well?

This is where we are at in 2013? Sad, very sad.

Jury has asked the question on the need clarification on manslaughter.

Not good for Zimmerman.

This jury is doing a compromise verdict. Self defense does away with both second degree murder and manslaughter.

http://www.richardhornsby.com/crimes/homicide/manslaughter.html (http://www.richardhornsby.com/crimes/homicide/manslaughter.html)

The crime of Manslaughter can be committed in one of three ways, either by:

  1  Manslaughter by Act (Voluntary Manslaughter): Committing an intentional act that was neither excusable, nor justified that resulted in the death of another person.
  2  Manslaughter by Procurement (Voluntary Manslaughter): Persuading, inducing, or encouraging another person to commit an act that resulted in the death of another person.
  3  Manslaughter by Culpable Negligence (Involuntary Manslaughter): Engaging in “Culpably Negligent” conduct that resulted in the death of another person.

What is amazing is all of the may be moot as this situation with the evidence that the State did not hand over to the defense and Friday's firing of the head of the State's IT department.

That will result in an appeal and could cause a potential guilty verdict of 2nd degree murder or manslaughter to be over-turned.

Let's face it, had that been turned over to the defense in a timely manner and the defense was able to track down who Martin was texting with and confirmed that it was TM, that evidence would have been damning the prosecutions case and have shown that TM was an experienced fighter and the weapon that he had was not Skittles and ice tea, but his fists.

That was a really huge piece of evidence not handed over by the State and the firing and subsequent smearing of him shows that the State is trying to discredit a potential whistle-blower.

From jury instruction:
http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/national/document-instructions-george-zimmerman-jury/nYnqZ/

MANSLAUGHTER
To prove the crime of Manslaughter, the State must prove the following two elements beyond a reasonable doubt:
1. Trayvon Martin is dead.
2. George Zimmerman intentionally committed an act or acts that caused the death of Trayvon Martin.

George Zimmerman cannot be guilty of manslaughter by committing a merely negligent act or if the killing was either justifiable or excusable homicide:
Each of us has a duty to act reasonably toward others. If there is a violation of that duty, without any conscious intention to harm, that violation is negligence.

The killing of a human being is justifiable homicide and lawful if necessarily done while resisting an attempt to murder or commit a felony upon George Zimmerman, or to commit a felony in any dwelling house in which George Zimmerman was at the time of the killing.

The killing of a human being is excusable, and therefore lawful, under any one of the following three circumstances:
1. When the killing is committed by accident and misfortune in doing any lawful act by lawful means with usual ordinary caution and without any unlawful intent, or
2. When the killing occurs by accident and misfortune in the heat of passion, upon any sudden and sufficient provocation, or
3. When the killing is committed by accident and misfortune resulting from a sudden combat, if a dangerous weapon is not used and the killing is not done in a cruel or unusual manner.

In order to convict of manslaughter by act, it is not necessary for the State to prove that George Zimmerman had an intent to cause death, only an intent to commit an act that was not merely negligent, justified, or excusable and which caused death.

If you find George Zimmerman committed Manslaughter, and you also find beyond a reasonable doubt that during the commission of the Manslaughter, George Zimmerman carried, displayed, used, threatened to use, or attempted to use a firearm, you should check the appropriate box on the verdict form which I will discuss with you later in these instructions.

The definition of a 'firearm' has been previously provided in these instructions.

Jury has asked the question on the need clarification on manslaughter.

Not good for Zimmerman.

This jury is doing a compromise verdict. Self defense does away with both second degree murder and manslaughter.

I am somewhat concerned that ... thanks to the Judiciary's rulings ... jurors were not afforded the entire self-defence picture.  The defence was required to plead the case without evidence.

On the other hand ... TM was portrayed by the Prosecution to jurors as an innocent little kid walking home following a purchase of candy when he encountered a big bad wannabe police officer.

The State may have not convinced jurors that the death of TM was 2nd Degree Murder but ... maybe the case of Manslaughter out of context may be where it is at.

Judge Rules Whether Trayvon’s Alleged Past Drug Use And School Suspension Permitted In Zimmerman Trial
5:25 pm, May 28th, 2013


During a pre-trial hearing Tuesday afternoon, a Florida judge ruled that George Zimmerman’s defense team cannot use the late Trayvon Martin’s alleged prior marijuana use, school suspension, past fighting, personal text messages or pictures during its opening statement in next month’s high-profile second-degree murder trial. ....

The judge also ruled that she might allow the fact that a small amount of marijuana was found in Martin’s blood the night of the shooting, but only after hearing from experts about the toxicology tests performed on the late teenager. ....

Zimmerman judge needs to read this case on authentication of text messages
July 10, 2013 at 7:11am


Judge Nelson stated that there was no evidence that Trayvon typed the texts even though the messages were on his phone and stored in DOUBLE-PASSWORD protected format using phone apps. …

The defense countered that its computer forensic expert, who testified, was able to track hundreds if not thousand of text messages on the phone and that the flow of conversations indicated it was Trayvon in context.

The Judge in the Zimmerman trial just ruled that the jury will not get to see numerous text messages on Trayvon Martin’s phone regarding his prowess at fighting, including texts as to how to punch someone in the nose and make them bleed.

Zimmerman Jury Will Be Allowed to Consider Lesser Manslaughter Charge
Published: July 11, 2013


Manslaughter has a lower threshold for prosecutors to prove and is defined in Florida as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice — including the result of an accident or other act in which the person does not have the mental state to commit a murder.

Though Mr. Zimmerman could receive a sentence of life in prison if he is convicted of murder, the maximum penalty in Florida for manslaughter with a deadly weapon is 30 years.

For either conviction, the state must prove Zimmerman is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Second-Degree Murder

    The state must prove Zimmerman killed Martin and it was an intentional killing that was not premeditated or planned.
    If Zimmerman convicted of second-degree murder, he will face up to life in prison.
    If the 10-20-Life Law is taken into consideration, a second-degree murder conviction means Zimmerman will have to serve a minimum 25 years in prison.

Manslaughter

    The state must prove Zimmerman committed an act that caused death.
    If Zimmerman is convicted of manslaughter with a firearm, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison.
    Under the 10-20-Life Law, a manslaughter conviction means Zimmerman will have to serve a minimum of 25 years in prison and face a maximum of life in prison.

Posted: 5:08 p.m. Saturday, July 13, 2013

What happens if the jury cannot reach a verdict in George Zimmerman trial?


SANFORD, Fla. —

If the jury deliberating in George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial tells Judge Debra Nelson it cannot reach a verdict, she will read them an Allen Charge.

What's an Allen Charge? An Allen Charge is a strongly worded reminder given by a judge to a jury that is hung or divided, and it can only be read once during deliberations.

Ultimately, the jury decides how long it will continue deliberations. If jurors still cannot reach a verdict, Nelson will declare a mistrial and the state will be free to try the case with a new jury.

Defence Attorney Mark O’Mara concurs!!

Judge allows jury to consider manslaughter in Zimmerman case
1:22 PM 07/11/2013


SANFORD, Fla. – Judge Debra Nelson ruled Thursday that the jury in the George Zimmerman trial will have the option to convict Zimmerman of manslaughter for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, but that they won’t be able to consider third-degree murder.

The highest charge against Zimmerman is second-degree murder. Under Florida law, that charge is an unlawful killing which “evinces a depraved mind regardless of human life.”

Zimmerman’s defense said they only wanted the jury to consider the initial second-degree charge. “We don’t want a compromise verdict, just like we don’t want a jury pardon,” said Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara on Wednesday. “We want a verdict based on the facts of the law and that’s an acquittal.”

Has the jury come back yet with a more specific question to ask the court yet on manslaughter, or are they still eating their filet mignon?

Well its not like they have anything else better to do. Sequestration has to get pretty old after a while. I am sure they want to come to an outcome and get back to their lives.

I can't imagine being away from the Internet that long. I would be raising my hand on the first day when the judge asked the question , do you read, go on line, blog or Facebook regarding the case.  ::MonkeyWink::

Norfolk NAACP president under fire for Facebook post
July 13, 2013


NORFOLK

A Facebook post by the president of the Norfolk NAACP about the George Zimmerman trial has sparked criticism.

According to an image of the post shown on WAVY-TV, Tristan Breaux, 25, wrote, "I wonder why is it that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim. Are we blinded about why Trayvon was at his dad's house in the first place, and why he wasn't at home at the time he was shot? Please think logically and not racially."

Several local NAACP members asked Breaux to take the post down, and he initially refused, said Jeffrey Logan, a former member of the local chapter's executive committee.

The post went up last week. Breaux's Facebook page is no longer visible.

"With a sensitive issue like this, for an NAACP president to post that - it's not a good thing," said former Norfolk NAACP President Bob Rawls.

Logan and Rawls said Breaux should resign his position.

Members of the branch's executive committee said they have no plans to seek his removal.

The jury gave the court and all the pundits the Okee-doke. As everyone was waiting for the question of manslaughter, they figured it out themselves.  Nancy Grace and Jane Velez Mitchell are going mental that there could have been a "not guilty" verdict. JVM was speechless.

But sorry, anyone who followed this case and watched objectively could have come back with no other verdict than not guilty. The prosecution did a terrible job and the defense was phenomenal.

Talk about having egg on your face. What she is not saying is that I screwed up big time, my prosecutions stunk because the case should never have been brought against GZ in the first place.

There is one thing that no one has touched yet with regards to what was learned from this case, especially when it comes to the jury and jury deliberations. It was actually a biggy.

We are always told that Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. The theory behind that is men are ruled by facts and women from emotion. The rule of thumb of every legal pundit is that the 6 female jurors were going to act like mom's and emotion would take precedent. When the prosecution gave their closing arguments it was 100% based on emotion, not fact, not evidence, not anything.

I think they thought they could get away with this in presenting their non-factual case and just sympathies to the female jury.

Boy they could not have been  any more wrong. I always thought it was rather demeaning for all the pundits saying that the women could not be objective.

This is going to change how juries are profiled for years to come.

Sorry, but I just cannot believe that Trayvon's parents were not in the court room for the verdict for their son, but they tweet post verdict comments. I am just astonished. If you go on talk shows and spent the time through out the trial, but not for the verdict. That is just mind blowing to me.

Looking at my Facebook tonight after the verdict...it makes me really sad to see how real racism is.  How racism is kept alive through people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.  Most Americans are good, loving, and caring people...not caring what the color of someone's skin is.  In my own experience...I have found that certain "minority" races want to keep racism alive...they thrive on the drama...isn't that racism?  This case never should have been turned into some landmark civil rights thing...it was nothing near that.  Nothing.  They wanted it to be so badly.  It is sad that Trayvon is gone...it is sad that people want to take George's life.  It is a sad situation all of the way around.  But it NEVER EVER should have went this far.  My "friends" are really disappointing me tonight.

Its too bad that the following two posts from Scared Monkeys were not used in the case or on some of these talk shows to dispel this notion that TM was only armed with a bag of Skittles and ice tea.

The fact of the matter is that almost just as many people are killed by fists, hand & feet as there are by shot guns and rifles. Some one's fists are a weapon, especially one who makes a habit out of fighting.

State never proved its case, legal analysts say

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/07/13/3499114/state-never-proved-its-case-legal.html#storylink=cpy

Quote
After five weeks of trial and 56 witnesses, few legal observers believed prosecutors came close to proving Sanford neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman committed second-degree murder when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in February 2012.
So for many legal analysts, it was no surprise that jurors rejected even a lesser “compromise” verdict of manslaughter, acquitting Zimmerman outright of all criminal charges and deciding he acted in a reasonable way to protect his own life.
The acquittal was a stinging blow for prosecutors and their decision to file the second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman, who was not initially arrested by Sanford police after claiming self-defense. And it was a resounding embrace of the defense’s strategy during closing arguments not just to establish that prosecutors hadn’t proven Zimmerman guilty, but also to show he was “absolutely” innocent.


 ::snipping3::

Quote
Jude M. Faccidomo, the former president of Miami’s Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers said the jury clearly believed in the right to self-defense: “Especially when cases are so gray, like this one was, self-defense really resonates because people can associate with being afraid.”
And while some also have questioned the state attorney’s office acceptance of a mostly white jury, a more diverse panel would have returned the same verdict, lawyers who have watched the case believe.

There is one thing that no one has touched yet with regards to what was learned from this case, especially when it comes to the jury and jury deliberations. It was actually a biggy.

We are always told that Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. The theory behind that is men are ruled by facts and women from emotion. The rule of thumb of every legal pundit is that the 6 female jurors were going to act like mom's and emotion would take precedent. When the prosecution gave their closing arguments it was 100% based on emotion, not fact, not evidence, not anything.

I think they thought they could get away with this in presenting their non-factual case and just sympathies to the female jury.

Boy they could not have been  any more wrong. I always thought it was rather demeaning for all the pundits saying that the women could not be objective.

This is going to change how juries are profiled for years to come.

Protesters Gather in a Handful of Cities
July 14, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO — Protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held largely peaceful demonstrations in three California cities, but broke windows and started small street fires Oakland, police said.
The gatherings Saturday night ranged from a few dozen to a couple hundred people turning out to protest the verdict in the Florida courtroom over the death of Trayvon Martin, and police said some of the demonstrations continued into the early hours Sunday.

Small demonstrations also took place in a handful of cities in Florida, as well as in Atlanta, Washington and New York.

The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested, with some in the crowd breaking windows on businesses and starting small fires in the streets. As the protest wound down with the crowd dispersing, the office said that as of 2 a.m. P.D.T. it had no word of any arrests.

Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.

The Oakland Tribune said some windows on the newspaper’s downtown offices were broken, and footage from a television helicopter show people attempting to start fires in the street and spray painting anti-police graffiti.

Protesters also reportedly burned an American and a California state flag and spray painted Alameda County’s Davidson courthouse.

Jose Baez is on Fox morning show. Putting my tin hat on here, but for once he is making sense.
He spoke of President Obama speaking out on this case and how wrong it was that he spoke out on this case.

I think that the jury got this one right. The prosecution did not have enough evidence.
And what was with Angela Corey donning her Oscar acceptance outfit? Geez! She looked ridiculous.

Jose Baez is on Fox morning show. Putting my tin hat on here, but for once he is making sense.
He spoke of President Obama speaking out on this case and how wrong it was that he spoke out on this case.

I think that the jury got this one right. The prosecution did not have enough evidence.
And what was with Angela Corey donning her Oscar acceptance outfit? Geez! She looked ridiculous.

 It seems like in this case down was up and up was down  and nothing previously believed was correct. I found myself agreeing with pundits I despised.
People I thought I knew were spewing venom..... and not even realizing it. I am relieved the trial is over,. The difficult part now begins for all parties, and that is picking up the pieces and trying to move forward.. Glad to see the explosion of protests not happening. I figured it was all hype and drama ....The idea of a federal suit is beyond crazy...
I admire Sybrina Fulton and for the way she conducted herself with class and grace and as the mother of a dead child I choose not to judge her for not being there for the verdict. She has been thru the ultimate and is beyond judgement in my eyes.....

Reports of suspensions paint more complicated picture of Trayvon Martin
Family attorney: ''Everyone trying to demonize" Sanford shooting victim
March 26, 2012


SANFORD — Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school in October in an incident in which he was found in possession of women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that a schools security staffer described as a “burglary tool,” The Miami Herald has learned.

Trayvon, who claimed that an unnamed friend had given him the jewelry, was not disciplined because of the discovery, but was instead suspended for graffiti, according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald.

<snipped>

According to the report, on Oct. 21 staffers monitoring a security camera at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School spotted Trayvon and two other students writing “W.T.F.,” an acronym for “What the f---,” on a hallway locker, according to schools police. The security employee, who knew Trayvon, confronted the teen and looked through his bag for the graffiti marker.

Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described the screwdriver as a burglary tool.

Trayvon was asked if the jewelry, which was mostly women’s rings and earrings, belonged to his family or a girlfriend.
 
“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend.
 
School police impounded the jewelry and sent photos of the items to detectives at Miami-Dade police for further investigation.
 
“Martin was suspended, warned and dismissed for the graffiti,” according to the report prepared by Miami-Dade Schools Police.

That suspension was followed four months later by another one, in February, in which Trayvon was caught with an empty plastic bag with traces of marijuana in it, the boy’s family’s attorney has confirmed. A schools police report obtained by The Miami Herald specifies two items: a bag with marijuana residue and a “marijuana pipe.”

The suspension was the third for the teen. On Monday, the family also acknowledged Trayvon had earlier been suspended for tardiness and truancy.

There is one thing that no one has touched yet with regards to what was learned from this case, especially when it comes to the jury and jury deliberations. It was actually a biggy.

We are always told that Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. The theory behind that is men are ruled by facts and women from emotion. The rule of thumb of every legal pundit is that the 6 female jurors were going to act like mom's and emotion would take precedent. When the prosecution gave their closing arguments it was 100% based on emotion, not fact, not evidence, not anything.

I think they thought they could get away with this in presenting their non-factual case and just sympathies to the female jury.

Boy they could not have been  any more wrong. I always thought it was rather demeaning for all the pundits saying that the women could not be objective.

This is going to change how juries are profiled for years to come.


A few sayings come to mind...
"Never underestimate the power of a woman"

"A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."

I totally agree... the prosecution counted on tugging at those female jurors heartstrings....

More Than a Bag of Skittles - Trayvon Martin and Purple Drank


<snipped.

Purple Drank or Lean is a cocktail that is created by mixing Robitussin or other over-the-counter cough medicines with, you guessed it, Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Juice, the flavor of tea Trayvon Martin was carrying that night.

Purple Drank also goes by other street names such as sizzurp, lean, syrup, sip sip, drank, barre, purple jelly and Texas tea.  It has opiate like effects.  Some of its side effects include confusion, agitation, and hallucinations among others.

Zimmerman's Brother Calls Trayvon Martin a Gun-Running Dope Fiend
July 14, 2013


George Zimmerman's brother, Robert, appeared on CNN this evening to discuss with Piers Morgan what the Zimmerman family has gone through after George Zimmerman killed (but did not murder) 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

"I want to know if it's true, and I don't know if it's true, that Trayvon Martin was looking to procure firearms, or growing marijuana, or looking to make lean," he told Piers Morgan and Don Lemon.

I recall being told for decades that if someone is following you, call the police.  Prior to the mobile/cell phone, the advise was to walk toward a safe place, people, or run up to a house with the lights on and ask for help. 
Never, never, confront your 'follower' by yourself - that's what the police are for.

I think there are some unanswered questions for the police department.  Do they follow-up when citizens complain about suspicious persons?  Burglaries?  Are they trying to pretend crime doesn't exist?  Does a community start a neighborhood watch because they feel safe?  The police are capable of preventing crime?

Do the police ever catch people breaking into homes?  How are calls handled when someone calls to say a neighbors home has just been broken into?  Do they actively look for those responsible for burglaries? 

Do they catch people responsible for burglaries?  What do they do?  If the person is under 18, do they handle it locally?  Do they circumvent the court system?  Try to keep convictions down?

I didn't follow the case in the media due to the racial overtones.  I did pay attention to the trial and the evidence.

Maybe people should be concerned when their children carry around skittles and watermelon beverages.  A new sign of drug addiction?  I think there is a lot of denial in families everywhere.

When I was young, parents did let their children roam the streets after dark.  Didn't seem fair at the time, and being a young invincible, it seemed like a stupid rule. 

My parents would have said something like "Why do you need Skittle and a sugar filled beverage before you go to bed?  Are you crazy?  Didn't you get enough to eat at dinner?  It's past your bedtime, you have school tomorrow, go get a glass of milk or water."

In my lifetime, I've known several who've lived through 'transitional' neighborhoods.  What changes?  Kids start roaming the streets at all hours of the night, they vandalize property, cars, get in fights, urinate in yards, have sex between the houses, and the parents tell them "f### off" when they are advised their 'children' are out roaming around after dark. 

The police only come after a crime has been committed.  There is a reason folks start a neighborhood watch.

George Zimmerman may have been rendered not guilty by the jury but ... nevertheless there should be a special investigation into the attempt by the State/Prosecution/Judiciary to withhold evidence that would have revealed that on that fateful night Trayvon Martin was not an innocent child returning home following a purchase of candy as deceptively portrayed.

Whistle-blowing state official fired after testimony in Zimmerman trial
Published July 14, 2013


The special prosecutor appointed to the George Zimmerman case has sacked a whistle-blowing colleague who testified at the trial that the state attorney’s office failed to comply with the rules of discovery.

Ben Kruidbos, the state attorney’s office IT director, was reportedly fired in the wake of rendering testimony during a June 6 hearing that was potentially damaging to the prosecution regarding cell phone photos and text messages discovered on Trayvon Martin’s phone that were not  furnished to defense attorneys.

<snipped>

The cell phone photos reportedly depict, among other things, a clump of jewelry on a bed, underage nude females, marijuana plants, as well as a hand menacingly holding a semiautomatic pistol.

Zimmerman's attorneys were reportedly seeking sanctions against the state for not properly turning over the evidence from Martin's phone. Judge Debra Nelson said she would revisit the matter at the trial's end.

It is really worth watching the post verdict presser videos of the defense and prosecution. Very telling.

The Defense is very matter of fact and they had the facts on their side. Called the prosecution of disgrace and thanked the jury for not turning a tragedy into a travesty. That is probably one of the best descriptions of the case. Because not matter what side anyone was on, we can all say that it is a tragedy when a teen dies, no matter if they had a part in it or not. But we should also be able to say that it could have been a travesty of justice if GZ was convicted because the FL law says he did nothing wrong. That is the fact. We are supposed to be a country ruled by law, or at least we used to be. Last night the jury in the George Zimmerman case returned us to that ideal.

The State in the videos are still in denial as to the fact that they charged Zimmerman with murder and that they actually put on a good case.

Had the Zimmerman team defended him like the prosecution presented the case against GZ, he could have appealed on the grounds of ineffective and incompetent representation.

Norfolk NAACP president under fire for Facebook post
July 13, 2013


NORFOLK

A Facebook post by the president of the Norfolk NAACP about the George Zimmerman trial has sparked criticism.

According to an image of the post shown on WAVY-TV, Tristan Breaux, 25, wrote, "I wonder why is it that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim. Are we blinded about why Trayvon was at his dad's house in the first place, and why he wasn't at home at the time he was shot? Please think logically and not racially."

Several local NAACP members asked Breaux to take the post down, and he initially refused, said Jeffrey Logan, a former member of the local chapter's executive committee.

The post went up last week. Breaux's Facebook page is no longer visible.

"With a sensitive issue like this, for an NAACP president to post that - it's not a good thing," said former Norfolk NAACP President Bob Rawls.

Logan and Rawls said Breaux should resign his position.

Members of the branch's executive committee said they have no plans to seek his removal.

Demonstrators across America rally after Zimmerman 'not guilty' verdict, amid some reports of vandalism
Published July 14, 2013


Demonstrators from coast-to-coast boisterously -- yet for the most part peacefully -- rallied Saturday night and into Sunday afternoon in protest of a long-awaited verdict that acquitted Floridian George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

But sporadic reports of vandalism trickled out of West Coast cities like Oakland, including the halt of a passenger train, the burning of American and California flags, the lighting of small fires in city roadways, shattered storefront windows and the spray painting of a courthouse, as well as the damaging of a police squad car. Protesters massed there Saturday evening just after the verdict was rendered by a six-person, all-female jury around 10 p.m. ET.

Obama Responds to Zimmerman Verdict: 'Stem the Tide of Gun Violence'--For Trayvon

President Barack Obama Calls Death of Trayvon Martin a Tragedy, Then Says, “We are a Nation of Laws, and a Jury has Spoken.”

THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF: President Obama says we are a nation of laws and the jury has spoken, yet then disregards the juries verdict that George Zimmerman used a gun in self defense.

President Barack Obama makes his first statement following the juries verdict of “NOT GUILTY” in the murder trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. Barack Obama called for calm reflection following the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Obama also went on to say, “we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken.” Hmm. Usually, those are only the laws that he wishes to enforce. Is such calls for calm a little too late as its difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. Obama’s call for calm, however, has already been inflamed by his previous comments when he decided to get involved in an investigation by making his comment, ”that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” Such comments further brought pressure to bear to prosecute George Zimmerman.
::snipping3::

Hmm ... so its not a tragedy what goes on in Chicago every day, eh? So does Obama think that is not a tragedy as well? I have news for the president, self-defense within the law and the use of a gun is not gun violence. Either this president respects what the jury said, or he doesn't. You don't get it both ways.

If we want to bring race into things...and find the injustice...what about my high school friends grandparents that were killed...brutally (Tulsa, OK-3/2012).  They were in their 90s...white...the killers were black...well we know one was--all suspected to be...he was caught and death was taken off of the table because of his intellectual ability (even though he was able to follow through with this plan).  He attacked them both...tortured them...raped her...it was just awful.  Where is the media coverage to find the others involved?  Where is the media coverage to demand death?  Where are the civil rights people?  I'm about sick of racism.  Poor me...really...keeping racism alive has its payoffs for some.  I'm not saying true racism does not exist...because it does.  But this case was not it.  They wanted it to be.

While I was listening to some commentary today, I found out that Martin's family got $1 million dollars from the HOA.  How much will they make from a civil judgement?

I imagine, all those dead in Chicago every week are worthless to lawyers.   No one can prosper from their deaths.  No HOA to sue, no family with two nickles...

I wonder how much Zimmerman had to pay for his legal expenses?

Zimmerman's business with the court may not be over
Donna Leinwand Leger and Yamiche Alcindor, USA TODAY 7:37 p.m. EDT July 14, 2013

George Zimmerman's business with the criminal court in Florida may be done, but a federal civil rights investigation remains open, and legal experts say he could face a civil suit.

A federal investigation into the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is underway, and prosecutors from the Justice Department's civil rights division will review evidence from the FBI and the Florida criminal trial, the Justice Department said Sunday in a written statement.
 ::snipping3::
"Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate," the statement said.
 ::snipping3::
Although Zimmerman has few assets, a book or movie deal could make him a lucrative target for a wrongful death suit, said Randy Reep, a criminal defense attorney in Jacksonville.

Apart from money, the family might sue "if only for a victory in principle," he said.
 ::snipping3::
Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, commented Saturday night on the possibility of suits against his client.

"On the civil aspect, if someone believes that it's appropriate to sue George Zimmerman, then we will seek and we will get immunity in a civil hearing.

"We'll see just how many civil lawsuits are spawned from this fiasco."

Sharpton or Jackson  will never fight for all the " black children" killing each other. That wouldn't get them the air time they get with the other. They don't give a darn about anything besides stirring up hate. The sad thing is I don't see them helping any one with their actions besides themselves.  I was raised that that you judge a person by their actions and that's what I taught my children. But I don't  see that among the Sharptons and Jacksons.  I see hate for all things not black. Very sad

Geraldo Rivera: Jury would have shot Trayvon ‘a lot sooner than George Zimmerman
July 12, 2013


Fox News host Geraldo Rivera on Friday asserted that prosecutors in Florida had been pressured by MSNBC host Al Sharpton and “race politics” to bring a weak case against former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. .....

“This was a case brought because of political pressure — race politics in this country,” the Fox News host opined. “I hate to say it. I hold the Rev. Al Sharpton in much higher regard than many of my colleagues… But I strongly believe that the Rev. Al is the catalyst behind murder two charge six weeks after the incident.”

“I believe the original prosecutor got it right,” he continued. “I think it is a self-defense situation, a classic self defense when you strip it of all of the trappings.”

Its funny you say that because that the Royal baby is going to knock Zimmerman off the news. There will be wall to wall "Royals" even though I think we fought a battle for Independence away from the Brits :-)

That's what i meant , I didn't time it but I think the baby segment was longer on NBC news tonight.

I think you misunderstood, I am 100% agreeing with you. The MSM hardly has a very long attention span. Its on to the next story and a Royal baby is the kind of story that sucks up all the oxygen in the room.

As Justice pursues civil rights probe against Zimmerman, FBI documents show no evidence of bias
Published July 15, 2013


The Justice Department has responded to appeals to probe whether George Zimmerman committed any civil rights violations in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin -- but previously filed FBI documents are already challenging the narrative that the shooting was racially motivated.

Sanford police detective Chris Serino told FBI agents last year that after examining the case, it appeared Zimmerman was suspicious of Martin because of his "attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community."
 
According to the document, Serino considered Zimmerman as having "a little hero complex, but not as a racist."

Zimmerman lawyer to move ‘asap’ against NBC News
Published: July 14 at 12:15 pm


Last night’s not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial will enable the neighborhood-watch volunteer to resume his case against NBC News for the mis-editing of his widely distributed call to police. Back in December, Zimmerman sued NBC Universal Media for defamation over the botched editing, which depicted him as a hardened racial profiler.

Here’s how NBC News, in a March 27, 2012, broadcast of the “Today” show, abridged the tape of Zimmerman’s comments to a police dispatcher on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

The full tape went like this:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

Two Things That Could Prevent the DOJ from Bringing Civil Rights Case Against Zimmerman
Jul. 15, 2013 9:15am

As the Department of Justice is looking into whether criminal civil rights charges could be brought against George Zimmerman, who was acquitted over the weekend from second-degree murder charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, some are pointing to interviews by the FBI that could thwart such a case accusing Zimmerman of racial profiling. Additionally, Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz has another bit of information that could also thwart the civil rights action.

Al Sharpton plans George Zimmerman protests
7/15/13 8:30 AM EDT

The Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for a “Justice for Trayvon National Day of Action” on Saturday and say demonstrations are planned in more than 100 cities nationwide.

Saying there would not have been a trial in Florida without pressure from activists, Sharpton was confident that continued pressure would result in a federal civil rights case.
 ::snipping3::
Sharpton said his National Action Network intends to keep the pressure on until a civil rights case is brought, insisting the protests will show the national anger over the verdict is not a “two- or three-day” thing.

“It’s not over. And we are going to make sure it’s not over, that’s why we’re calling people to … organize in your city. I don’t care if it’s 20 people, we want to show the nation that over 100 cities a week later is still demanding justice. We’re not having a fit, we’re having a movement,” Sharpton said.

The event will also help begin a four-week countdown to the 50th anniversary event for the March on Washington on August 24, which will include Martin Luther King III, and which Sharpton said will be centered on Trayvon Martin and the Voting Rights Act.

Tucker Carlson: Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton are ‘hustlers and pimps’
Sunday, July 14, 2013 13:20 EDT


Carlson said that he felt “terrible” for the Martin family, but he was “positive that people like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton do not deserve to be called civil rights leaders. They are not.”

“They are hustlers and pimps who make a living off inflaming racial tensions,” he continued. “They know nothing about this. They’re not residents of Florida, they don’t represent anybody, they’re not elected to anything, they don’t have constituencies. And they only reason they are allowed to do this is because we in the press enable them by calling them civil rights leaders. Why do we do that?”

Dershowitz to Newsmax: 'Prosecutorial Tyrant' Violated Zimmerman's Rights
Sunday, 14 Jul 2013

Famed defense lawyer and Harvard law professor Alan M. Dershowitz is calling for a federal investigation into civil rights violations stemming from the George Zimmerman case — but he says the probe should focus on prosecutorial misconduct rather than on allegations of racial profiling and bias.

Immediately after the verdict was announced, however, the NAACP and outspoken activist Al Sharpton called on the Justice Department to launch a federal civil-rights probe, charging that the case had been racially tainted.

Dershowitz is calling for a civil-rights probe as well. But he contends the person whose rights were violated was Zimmerman.

“I think there were violations of civil rights and civil liberties — by the prosecutor,” said the criminal-law expert. “The prosecutor sent this case to a judge, and willfully, deliberately, and in my view criminally withheld exculpatory evidence.”

Thanks Grace.

Defense attorneys from the left and right of the political spectrum should be concerned about the prosecution of GZ.

Dershowitz to Newsmax: 'Prosecutorial Tyrant' Violated Zimmerman's Rights
Sunday, 14 Jul 2013

Famed defense lawyer and Harvard law professor Alan M. Dershowitz is calling for a federal investigation into civil rights violations stemming from the George Zimmerman case — but he says the probe should focus on prosecutorial misconduct rather than on allegations of racial profiling and bias.

Immediately after the verdict was announced, however, the NAACP and outspoken activist Al Sharpton called on the Justice Department to launch a federal civil-rights probe, charging that the case had been racially tainted.

Dershowitz is calling for a civil-rights probe as well. But he contends the person whose rights were violated was Zimmerman.

“I think there were violations of civil rights and civil liberties — by the prosecutor,” said the criminal-law expert. “The prosecutor sent this case to a judge, and willfully, deliberately, and in my view criminally withheld exculpatory evidence.”

#Occupy joins the anti-Zimmerman crusade
Posted by Mandy Nagy    Monday, July 15, 2013 at 7:35am

In the wake of Saturday’s not guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trial, demonstrations to protest the outcome have erupted all across the country, with more scheduled Monday and throughout the week.  Most have been peaceful, others not so much.  We’ve collected a handful of tweets, photos and videos from some of them here.

The @OccupyWallSt Twitter account tweeted a link to a list of Trayvon rallies in towns across the country.

  Cow crashes through roof, kills sleeping Brazilian

"A Brazilian man has died after a 3000-pound cow crashed through the roof of his house and crushed him, according to local reports.

Joao Maria de Souza was sleeping with his wife when the animal plunged through the corrugated asbestos shelter of his home in Caratinga in south-eastern Brazil.

The cow is thought to have escaped from a nearby farm, before it clambered onto the home, which backs onto a steep hill.'

       “I didn't bring my son up to be killed by a falling cow,"       his mother Maria de Souza told Brazil's Super Canal TV channel. "

Im very happy that our state followed the laws and listened to all the evidense and came to the correct verdict. My family lives in Orlando and my brother is a home owner in Sanford and Ive been to the area before that all this happened at. This case was pretty cut and dry before the "race" card got thrown in. I hate that a 17 year old lost his life but its not like he was 100% innocent. Just wanted to say that Im glad justice was done, as so many times as we have seen here iin  this forum the outcome is not what we would have called "right"!

George Zimmerman's parents post statement after acquittal

 ::snipping3::
"We thank God that our son has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers. Although we have always known that our son was not guilty, the State of Florida utilized significant resources to conducted a clearly malicious, unfounded prosecution. We sincerely hope that more of the truth will become available and that all responsible will be held fully accountable for their truly egregious actions.

"We would like to thank everyone that has displayed support for George and our family during this extremely difficult time. Your words of encouragement have been lifting. Without a doubt, your prayers for us have been heard and answered. One of the first things I told George when this nightmare started was that I believe God sends his strongest Angels into his most difficult battles.

"In the future, difficult days will continue. There is much that still needs to be accomplished. We would wholeheartedly appreciate your keeping us in your thoughts and in your prayers.

Thank you so very much."

hmmm.....not sure i think that this is ok. should anyone b able to profit for doing their civil duty.

we have a reward system for info that leads, to the conviction, apprehension, of the perp
JMO giving that info should be a civic duty, NO REWARD

my Q is, when or if, was this juror approached, b4 or after the trial directly or through
fam, friend, that could have passed the book deal invite on.
JMO, that kind of offer could sway a vote, and at the least be investigated

This is all second hand from another site

Serinos "yes" had a big impact even though stricken.
Phone timeline big factor
Donnelly the medic made biggest impact
 Has every right to carry gun. Shouldn't have gotten out of vehicle, and guilty of using poor judgement.
Said the dispatcher should not have asked him where TM was going if he didn't expect GZ to follow.
wasn't racial profiling
incredible number of break-ins and seeing Trayvon cutting through yards and looking through houses led to Georges suspicion
 GZ overeager to help. Cites friendliness to neighbor, offering her lock for door, phone number, opened his home to her.
Didn't buy cop wannabe angle

Rachel Jeantel Piers Morgan Inteview Part 1 Weed Made Trayvon hungry
Published on Jul 15, 2013 
piers morgan Trayvon Martin's friend Rachel Jeantel.

Jeantel, who created a media firestorm with her highly-polarizing testimony towards the beginning of the trial, appeared on Piers Morgan Live alongside her attorney. She described her reaction to Zimmerman's acquittal as "disappointed, upset and angry" and called the jury's assessment of what happened "just B.S."

Asked about what Trayvon Martin was like as a friend, Jeantel described him as a "calm, chill, loving person" and said she never saw him get "aggressive" or "lose his temper." She said that the defense's attempts to portray Martin as a "thug" were unfounded and defended his relatively mild drug use. "Weed don't make him go crazy," she said, "it just makes him go hungry."

Jeantel also responded to the massive mockery she received in social media for the way she speaks, explaining that she was born with an under-bite that has made it difficult for her to speak clearly. When Morgan asked if she'd been bullied for her condition, she simply responded, "Look at me," to laughter from the studio audience.

Morgan attempted to get Jeantel to offer her opinion of defense attorney Don West, who many claimed was condescending towards her when she was on the stand. Jeantel shook her head, declining to say anything bad about the man given her "Christian" upbringing.

Rachel Jeantel Piers Morgan Interview Part 2
Published on Jul 15, 2013 
piers morgan Trayvon Martin's friend Rachel Jeantel.

In the second part of his interview with Jeantel, Morgan turned to the "creepy-ass cracker" comment she made and the major impact it had on the tenor of the case. She explained that the term is actually spelled "cracka" and defined it as "people who are acting like they're police." She said that if Zimmerman had calmly approached Martin and introduced himself, her friend would have politely said what he was doing there and nothing more would have happened.

Unlike the juror, Jeantel did think Zimmerman was racially motivated. "It was racial," she said. "Let's be honest, racial. If Trayvon was white and he had a hoodie on, would that happen?" She said she "had a feeling it was going to be not guilty" not because of the racial makeup of the jury, but because of the way the testimony went.

Jeantel insisted that Martin was "creeped out" and believed Zimmerman was following him, even worrying that he might be a "rapist." She asked, "For every boy or every man who's not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creeped out?"

Florida prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda had "prayed that [George Zimmerman] would have the courage to take the stand," he told ABC News in an exclusive interview Sunday, adding that Zimmerman's "inconsistent statements" would have made him the prosecution's star witness.

7/15/13    Man Claims Attack Was Trayvon Retaliation
   


A jogger says three men attacked him in retaliation for the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

The attack happened on Highway 51 in Senatobia, Miss., Sunday night.

The victim told News Channel 3 and investigators the men drove up to him, asked if he knew who Trayvon Martin was, then forced him into a car.

At some point, the man says the men told him, “This is for Trayvon.”

The man was badly beaten, then dropped off on Cut Off Road between Senatobia and Coldwater, Miss.

Riveting, LOL? I am not sure any interview with her could be described as riveting.  I would ask if she was going to say again that "creepy ass cracker" is not a racist comment?  ::MonkeyEek::

According to Rachel...no.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

#Zimmermanon9 was never told not to get out of his car. He was already out when police said they did not need him to follow Martin.

Juror B37 days the jurors did not believe race was involved. 5 thought #Zimmermanon9 was screaming and 1 thought it could be Martin.

HEROES ...

5 Year Old Jocelyn Rojas Abducted in Lancaster, Pennsylvania Saved by 15 Year Old Temar Boggs and his Friend from a Sex Offender

HEROES OF THE DAY …

As we are surrounded by so many who only want to cause trouble, promote vigilantism and divide us … along comes two heroes where race was irrelevant and all that mattered was the safety of a 5 year old little girl. God bless these two kids who stepped up, made a difference and saved a child from a certain peril at the hands of her abductor.

 ::snipping3::

Don't let evil win America. Those that would divide us should be ashamed. It is disgusting that so-called individuals if authority, so-called Civil Rights activists would do more to divide us than bring us together, Why? Because they make a living keeping the races at each other and maintain power.

Then there are those stories that happen in all of our communities where we work hand in hand together and its not about the color of one's skin, but the content of their character. And the character of the two teens that helped save the little 5 year old girl was font and center. Great job guys!!!

Watching Anderson Cooper ... How dare Ms Cory call George Zimmerman a murderer after a jury has found him not guilty ! I found that highly offensive !

IMO the juror on Anderson Cooper is a very intelligent lady who took her job seriously and looked at all the evidence and applied the law along with a little bit of common sense to come to the correct decision. I was impressed with her.
And the Sunny chick grates on my last nerve !
