Deflection and Misdirection – the Strategy of the Defense Team

The latest hearing in the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman was quite the circus to say the least. In my opinion the hearing was not just for O’Mara’s ludicrous sanction motion against the state for getting rip to shreds in Bernie de la Rionda’s response, but to put on a show for the dwindling support group for the Zimmermans.

I say Zimmermans to include the family as well. Their actions speak for themselves.

The hearing was yet another attempt to get at Mr. Crump, Ms. Sabrina Fulton and Witness 8, aka Deedee. This is the misdirection.

Misdirection is a form of deception in which the attention of an audience is focused on one thing in order to distract its attention from another.

Counsel for the defendant keeps failing to realize this is a murder trial with witnesses, forensic evidence, the defendant’s multiple statements, the defendant’s Hannity interview, bullet casing location, GPS data, phone records, text messages and DNA evidence.

Mr. Crump has done everything he can and will do legally in helping his clients Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, for the senseless shooting death of their son Trayvon Martin. Anything garnered by Mr. Crump’s efforts are protected by work product/attorney privilege.

What part of that statement/ruling made by the judge in the black robe do they not understand?

Don West starts off with his ongoing complaint of attorney Crump’s interview of Deedee. If the Sanford Police Department would have done their due diligence in finding her,  they could have questioned her themselves. Law enforcement commonly obtains permission from the parents and or through a warrant to access data on phones. This case has been fouled from the very beginning. Many things were done wrongly and some rightly. More often than not the Sanford Police Department is responsible for a lot of the wrongs.
West continues to go on and on about the non-hospital visit of Deedee.  It is a non-issue. Big deal! So what! What does that have to do with a man with a record of domestic violence, and anger issues, menacing Trayvon first by car, then on foot, chasing him in the dark, and ultimately killing him with a gun that is registered to his wife, Shellie.

What does Deedee making an excuse, (not a lie of not attending the funeral of a person she was in love with),  have to do with the murder case filed by the State of Florida?  Most human beings do not like facing the death of a loved one, let alone one that was murdered.

The other thing I noticed from the hearing was both attorneys, Mr. Mark O’Mara and Mr. Don West, used the hearing, not only to attack the State for their hurt feelings from the response by Mr. Bernie de la Rionda, but to also discuss, at length, depositions taken of Ms. Sybrina Fulton and Deedee.

Depositions are never a part of the case record. Not being a part of the case record means there is no requirement to seal or unseal. The court never sees depositions. Depositions are solely for discovery and not intended to address the facts of a case neither legal conclusions. They are maintained by the attorneys. Some depositions are never reduced to transcripts – that is, written out, because attorneys do not find any information in them that has merit in the case.  When that happens, if opposing counsel wants a transcript of the deposition, they have to pay for them to be transcribed.

In essence, we the public, do not get to see transcripts of depositions because they are not a part of the case record.

The attorneys for the defendant found a way to talk about the depositions without getting in trouble with the court. For example, would we have known that the letter that was presented from Deedee to Ms. Fulton was not written in her own hand but was dictated by her and written by a friend named Francine? It doesn’t make the letter any less authentic because she did not pen it herself; they were her thoughts written by her friend. She signed the letter. By signing the letter she made it hers. The content of the letter could have not come from her friend, because she was not on the phone with Trayvon. Deedee herself was describing as best she could for Ms. Sybrina Fulton what happened that night. The audacity of the defendant’s attorneys to actually make this woman take a personal letter out of her Bible to prove she had the original goes beyond the limit of human decency.

It goes to show us the only strategy O’Mara and West are using is to keep attacking witness 8, aka Deedee, and Ms. Sybrina Fulton. This will not work. We have viewed the available evidence and data to date and all of it points to the absolute guilt of George Zimmerman.

Quite a few bloggers have painstakingly taken apart evidence, timelines, DNA data, police timelines, videos etc. that can put any experts that O’Mara employs to shame.

By the way we never have known the friend’s name if it weren’t for Mr. West’s big mouth either. This is why the identity of witness 8 is taken with the utmost care by the State. The lengths that some blogs (they know who they are) and the attorneys themselves have gone through to get information about her are enough to scare any person.

Bernie de la Rionda cross-examination of West was outstanding! He got Mr. West to answer when the existence of the letter to Ms. Fulton was discovered.  There was no withholding of discovery.  Bernie de la Rionda also revealed how long the defense team deposed Ms. Fulton – 7 hours; really, they actually asked her about her employment, and how much money she made in previous years. How relevant is this? The amount of time spent on witness eight and Ms. Fulton borders on witness intimidation.

I also noticed that Bernie didn’t fall for their crap either; he didn’t do a tic for tat by revealing any of the juicy details from his interviews.

The lawyers for the defense were trying, very badly I might add, to deflect from the real issue of the immunity hearing. O’Mara wanted nothing more than to crawl back under the rock he slithered from, than to have that taken right off the table. He had to eat those words previously said at interviews and in court that his client welcomes an immunity hearing. O’Mara said “His client wants to take the stand and plead his case”.  When did Mark O’Mara know that he would not proceed with a pre-trial immunity hearing?  Please see the video below.

Weren’t those the days, Counselor? (LOL)

As previously stated by Judge Lester, the case against George Zimmerman is strong.

There aren’t many days left till June 10th. We are already in the first week of May.  As my good friend Lonnie says, Tick, Tock George, Tick Tock.

Sorry, but that does not justify the use of deadly force. The photo that Jon took of the back of GZ’s head may not make it into exhibits at trial because it is damaging for O’Mara. This is what I mean by damaging — not once in any of GZ’s statements did he say anything about a witness taking that photo. That photo also shows GZ using a cell phone. He doesn’t mention that either.

              I think it is a bowl of horse shitake in him saying he wanted to be a judge instead of a policeman. He used his cousin, IIRC as a reference that a judge has more of an impact than a policeman on criminals. Neither is the case, imho.

              A policeman in this day and age do not “help” fellow citzens, case in point look at the mess in Sandford Fl. They have gone through many police chiefs, and do not have good relations with the black community.

              I really can’t speak on the judges in Florida, but as far as I know, Judge Lester was so-so. Judge Nelson is by the book and I like her control of the court. She has been fair and balanced.

            Was catching up on some reading and caught that also, at first glance I get the impression that because a copy of said ccw license is in the discovery dump that it is valid, that may not be the case. For example , I might think my driver’s license is valid, but when “checked” by a “database” by LE it may be revoked or suspended with or without my knowledge. The key words is “checked” and “database” in that sentence.

            I think the poster is adamant because of his history that this may not be the case with GZ. It is hard not to compare your own life experiences with the case. I think the poster is suggesting that it may be valid because of his credentials. That being said, he may be wrong also.

            Considering the preferential treatment GZ received at the very beginning, I can safely assume that they didn’t even check his criminal history or check through a database system to verify that his license was valid.

            Thinking on how badly SPD did there job in the beginning, such as saying that GZ was squeaky clean, then come to find out that was not the case, who is to say that they actually verified his ccw license to be valid. They were very much aware of his activities regarding NW. Some of the very officers who were on scene gave him the benefit of doubt because of his constant contact with law enforcement. Some of the officers on scene were the same officers who responded to his numberous NEN calls in the past.

            I quote from Osterman’s book page 14.

            Can you tell me anything that happened?

            The Sandford police officer quickly answered, ” Oh, don’t worry about it: from what I’ve seen, it’s clean.” This bit of “police jargon” meant, in the officer’s opinion, it was pretty clear what had taken place since speaking to witnesses, and there weren’t a lot of questions about the incident.

            I don’t think towerflower is a minion of the other side, just trying to prove a point, I think.

      • Lonnie Starr, I have a question for you. Why do you think Gz ran over to RVC? Wouldn’t it be easier and faster for GZ to go down TTL? During the walk thorough with the police, Zimmerman says and motions that he saw Martin heading south. So, why would he head east to intercept someone going south? I want to see this from different angles, so if you don’t mind could you expalin your theory?

        Like

        • Oh, I see what you’re saying. You think that I’m saying that gz ran east on the walkway at the ‘T’, but that’s not what I’m saying. What I’m saying is that, because the NEN printout says that the nearest intersection is LOW, gz must have parked his truck somewhere south on TTL, near LOW. From that position he couldn’t see Trayvon, so his description of Trayvon’s pants was flawed. When Trayvon runs east towards the ‘T’, gz realizes that he’s got to move quickly to get into position, so he gets out of his truck and runs east through the nearest cut through. He’s already way south of the ‘T’. So when he gets into the corridor and looks south, he doesn’t see Trayvon coming south as he expects, so he continues over to RVC, since, remember, the last he saw Trayvon was when Trayvon was moving east.

          gz is way south of the ‘T’, and Trayvon is probably coming north in the shadows or has hidden against the buildings to scan the area. Trayvon doesn’t see gz and thinks he’s lost the dude, so he starts walking again. Only to see gz coming back from RVC on a cut through near his house. Trayvon can’t go near the house so he turns and heads back north.

          Later, Bernolsky checking for cars, works his way up RVC east, interviewing as he goes. at RVC south he finds Shellie’s car, then he turns north on TTL and doing more interviews he finds GZ’s truck 15 minutes later, then he comes upon the HOA Presidents truck with it’s unlisted plate. So it looks like gz’s truck was parked south of the HOA Presidents truck. And Osterman’s vehicle isn’t found at all, though he says he parked near Shellie’s car.

          I think Osterman was being extra cautious. As a LEO himself, he would know better than to have his car found inside the complex, since the entrance and exit is going to be blocked if something goes wrong, and his vehicle would be trapped inside, possibly linking him to whatever happened. My guess is he parked at MI bank and had Shellie pick him up and drive him inside RATL well before 7pm He was at the MI bank 2 minutes away at 6:38 the NEN call won’t begin until 7:09pm.

  12. Okay, I see what you mean. I just had a thought. If the NW was a collective effort, then it may have been the HOA presidents husband who was feeding GZ info about Martin. As, others have theorized, I too believe Martin was seen leaving the neighborhood, but not by GZ, but by Osterman. While Trayvon is waiting out the rain at the 7-11, Osterman relays the info that a black male he saw leaving the neighborhood is now entering one of the complexes near the store. Gz goes there to watch Trayvon, who got creeped out and left in a hurry. I’m thinking that the cut thru he told witness 8 about is not at the T, but the one between that seperates the housing complexes.(see factsfirst at Leatherman’s blog) If, that is correct, then Gz would not be able to follow, instead he would have to get back in traffic, maybe even stop for traffic giving Martin enough time to beat Gz back. Intially Gz parks near the clubhouse hoping Martin will pass by, when he gets a call(HOA president?/husband?)alerting GZ that Martin is headed east on TTL. GZ does his u-turn and goes after him. Martin recognizes the vechicle and runs behind the building thinking he had lost him when in reality…..well you know. just a thought I had.
