GEORGE ZIMMERMAN DISCOVERY
ON 10 MAY 2012.
The first round of discovery documents in the George Zimmerman Case are most likely to be provided to O’Mara Law Group on Monday, May 14. Public release of the of the discovery may be delayed as we may be filing a motion to further redact information, and an opportunity to review the discovery is necessary to determine the applicability of that motion. While we understand the frustration of those who want to view the information as soon as possible, we believe that Mr. Zimmerman’s right to a fair trial, decided by an impartial, unbiased jury is paramount.

George Zimmerman's attorney may get evidence Monday, could block public release

 ::snipping2::
Normally, when evidence is exchanged between the state and defense it becomes public record, but O'Mara said that may not happen right away in this case.

 "Public release... may be delayed as we may be filing a motion to further redact information, and an opportunity to review the discovery is necessary to determine the applicability of that motion," the statement says.

 "While we understand the frustration of those who want to view the information as soon as possible, we believe that Mr. Zimmerman's right to a fair trial, decided by an impartial, unbiased jury is paramount," O'Mara said.  ::snipping2::

George Zimmerman Has Received Nearly $500,000 In Online Donations

George Zimmerman just might be the luckiest killer in America. He nearly got off for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, gets to spend the next few months out of prison while he awaits a trial date, and has received more than $200,000 in donations over the last two weeks. According to his lawyer, Mike O'Mara, who created a new website for Zimmerman, nearly $50,000 of the funds raised will cover his living expenses, while the remaining $150,000 was turned over to an independent administrator.  ::snipping2:: ::snipping2::

Mark NeJame on Piers Morgan.....has family photo of GZ's great grandfather, who is black, his grandmother, who is half black half white(I think) light skinned anyway. So for MNJ....there is no way this was a racially profiled encounter.  GZ comes from a very mixed background.

George Zimmerman: Did he shoot Trayvon Martin in self defense?

George Zimmerman admits he shot and killed Trayvon Martin. But was it self defense?

Frank Taaffe, a friend of George Zimmerman, shows ABC7's Scott Thuman where the shooting of Trayvon Martin happened. Photo: ABC7
ABC7's Scott Thuman went inside the Sanford, Florida neighborhood where the shooting happened.
 
He talks with Frank Taaffe, a friend of Zimmerman's, and a former neighborhood watch volunteer himself, who says it was self defense.
 
Taafe shows us what he says eye witnesses told him happened that night in the Twin Lakes neighborhood.
 
In this now infamous neighborhood, there's almost as much foot traffic as vehicle traffic. There's a cut-through frequented by kids, some following the very same footsteps as Trayvon Martin.
 
But in an area hit by thieves, up to 11 times in 14 months, and where property value has plummeted, there was also plenty of suspicion. 


He's parked here, the vehicles in this direction and he watches Trayvon come down here, stares at him out his window and according to George he circles around the car here and he heads back off in this direction here," Taaffe says.
 
"Trayvon's walking in this direction, George is maintaining a visual on him all the time in contact with the dispatcher."
 
The police dispatcher told Zimmerman to quit following Martin.
 
But Taaffe says that when Zimmerman went back to his vehicle, he's the one who became a victim.
 
Based on what he says witnesses told him, Taaffe points to the pavement and says, "Right here, this is it, this is where Trayvon punched George to the ground and started slamming his head right here on this concrete."
 
Taaffe says he believes more witnesses will come forward and set the record straight.  ::snipping2::

Trayvon's mom seeks scrutiny of self-defense laws






MIAMI –  In a video timed to coincide with Mother's Day weekend, the mother of slain teenager Trayvon Martin urged people around the country to push for new scrutiny of "stand your ground" self-defense laws like those in Florida and about two dozen other states.
 
George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot the unarmed 17-year-old, was not arrested for weeks after the Feb. 26 confrontation because he invoked the Florida law that does not require a person to retreat in the face of a serious threat. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has convened a task force to decide whether the law needs changes in the aftermath of Martin's shooting.
 
His mother, Sybrina Fulton, said in the video that other states should follow suit, noting that thousands of mothers lose children every year to gun violence.
 
"Nobody can bring our children back. But it would bring us comfort if we can spare other mothers the pain we will feel on Mother's Day and every day for the rest of our lives," Fulton said. "I'm asking you to join Florida by asking the governor of your state to reexamine similar 'stand your ground' laws throughout the nation to keep our children safe."
 
Fulton said this weekend would be very difficult for her.
 
"This will be my first Mother's Day without my son Trayvon," she said. "I know it will be hard. But my faith, family and friends will pull me through."   ::snipping2::

The video is being distributed via email and social media such as Twitter and Facebook by a coalition of civil rights and anti-gun violence organizations, including the NAACP and Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. A spokesman for the effort, Chris Brown, said the initial focus is on states that have laws similar to Florida's, such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina and Georgia.
 
"Our organization will be educating the public about these laws in all states," Brown said

Trayvon Martin's parents take justice campaign to London

The parents of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin held a public meeting in England Friday to highlight the dangers of “profiling” people by the color of their skin or outward appearance.

Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton took to a stage at the University of London with the mother of a black British teenager, Stephen Lawrence, who was murdered in a racist attack in Eltham, South London, in 1993.
 
Doreen Lawrence campaigned for years to get justice for her son, and two men, Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, were only found guilty of Stephen’s murder in January.  ::snipping2:: 

Slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin's parents Sybrina Fulton (left) Tracy Martin (back) and brother, Jahvaris Fulton, (right) with Doreen Lawrence, mother of murdered British teenager Stephen Lawrence.

With tears in her eyes, Fulton told an audience of journalists, activists, students and others, “I should not be looked at differently because of the color of my skin.”

“Although it’s a sad moment for us to be here, it warms my heart to know there are other people who are supporting us,” she said.

“I say to you today … just stand up, stand up and be heard. Don’t let this happen to another one of our children,” Fulton added.

“Until you have lost a child, it’s very difficult for you to understand how we feel, and the hurt and the pain that we have," she said.

Fulton also released a Mother's Day video appeal on YouTube and the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation's website Friday for people across the United States to campaign for "stand your ground" laws to be re-examined.

She said she would say a prayer on Mother's Day for other mothers who had lost their children to "senseless gun violence.  ::snipping2:: 

“We can stand together on common ground … the loss of children. It certainly is a unique fraternity to be in, one that we didn’t choose to be in,” he said. “She [Lawrence] is proving you can turn tragedy into something positive… there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

He said profiling was “not just an issue of black and white.”

“It’s a profiling issue in general, profiling of all sorts,” he said.

After the public meeting, a vigil was held just outside Downing Street, home to the British prime minister's official residence.

Trayvon's parents spoke briefly and then stood with the crowd of about 100, who chanted "I am Trayvon Martin" and "No justice, no peace."

Trayvon Martin’s mother got about eight months of donated vacation time from county co-workers


Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, will be able to take about eight additional months of paid leave from her county job, thanks to the generosity of Miami-Dade County employees.

Fulton, who has worked at the county housing authority for 23 years, collected $40,825 in donated vacation time, county records show.

The county commission passed a resolution in April allowing county employees to donate their vacation time to Fulton or Trayvon’s aunt, Yolanda Knight Evans, a water and sewer customer service representative.

Records show 192 county employees gave Fulton some of their hours, and 70 people donated to Knight Evans.

The donations for Fulton added up to 1,362 hours — meaning she can take 34 paid weeks off. Trayvon’s aunt collected nearly nine weeks.

County records show Fulton, who earns $68,768 a year as an administrative officer, used funeral leave, four weeks of accumulated sick leave and 60 hours of vacation after her son’s Feb. 26 death. She also took two days of unpaid furlough.

The County Commission resolution allowing donated time was approved in April, so she did not get to tap that source of time off until last week’s pay period.

Fulton is expected to appear before the County Commission Tuesday to thank the county for its support. She was in London this week and not available for comment.  ::snipping2::


By far the most generous contributor in terms of number of hours was county employee Eric Cherelus, who gave Trayvon’s aunt and mother each an entire week of his vacation time.

The commission capped the donations at $50,000. Donations came in $30 over that.

The disturbing shooting targets featuring Trayvon Martin
A callous Florida entrepeneur sparks outrage by selling gun-range targets evoking the black teen killed by George Zimmerman


The controversy: An unidentified businessman is selling gun range targets designed to make people feel like they're shooting Trayvon Martin, reports Mike DeForest of WKMG Local 6, a Florida television station. The unarmed black teen was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February, and Zimmerman, who claims he was acting in self-defense, has been charged with second-degree murder. The targets (see the image at right) do not feature a photo of Martin himself, but show a silhouette in a black hoodie — the outfit Martin was famously wearing when he died — with a huge bullseye on it. The figure is holding a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea, two items Martin purchased that night. The businessman tells DeForest that he did it to "make money off the controversy," and claims he sold out of the targets in two days. An ad for the targets, featured on a "popular firearms auction website," says the sellers "support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug." The ad has since been taken down.  ::snipping2::
