George Zimmerman Following Trayvon Martin On Video

Subtitled: One Of Numerous Pieces Of Evidence That The Jury Disregarded

Willisnewton worked on a team analyzing the clubhouse videos.  Their completed project is on video titled “The Death of Trayvon Martin.”

Willisnewton posted here and I mentioned that in a portion of the East Pool Hall video, I saw a figure leaving the mail shed with car lights slowly following.

Since that time, willisnewton has asked, and I have promised, to either give the time for when I see that or point it out otherwise.   The below video is of that clip, along with what happened at trial pertaining to it.  It begins at about 7:10 p.m.

At trial, by an objection by the defense, sustained by Judge Nelson, the prosecution was forbidden to have the witness say whether he saw anything in the video.  He could only confirm that the camera records the mail-shed area.

At closing argument, Bernie de la Rionda tried compensating for the lack of witness testimony by telling the jury what the video reveals. Prosecutors saw what I see.

The video below also shows the clip in slow-motion, and in an enhanced, or brighten version so that the figure is more clear. Read the rest of this entry

O’Mara’s Lesson on Common Sense

The Zimmermans leaving the courtroom after closing arguments and jury instructions are read

 

On July 12, 2013, the defense in the George Zimmerman 2nd degree murder trial presented closing argument.

It was presented by attorney Mark O’Mara.   The following video consists of excerpts where O’Mara speaks to the jury about common sense and presumptions, in addition to some other interesting snippets.

Closing argument for the defense, with rebuttal closing argument by the State.   The jury will receive instructions then start deliberations.

Croakerqueen123 had problems with the recording of the State’s rebuttal closing.  The next video is courtesy of Axiom Amnesia. The sound is not as good as the other videos.

George Zimmerman Trial – Day 12

This morning, the Honorable Judge Debra Nelson granted the State’s Motions to prevent the entry of Trayvon Martin’s text phone messages.  The defense may use the animation during closing argument, but it will not be entered into evidence for the jury.

It is anticipated that closing arguments will begin tomorrow after one rebuttal witness for the State.

MOTION HEARING

 

George Zimmerman Trial – Day 10

Monday, July 8, 2013

Koppelli’s Gym owner, Adam Pollack, was arrested in March 2013 for attacking a woman and threatening to cut her fingers and toes off.   Pollack testified today that George Zimmerman joined his gym in 2010 and began training in “grabbling” then switched to boxing.  He testified that Zimmerman was trained in how to get free from being mounted, and how to protect his face from punches.  Zimmerman did not advance quickly because he was obese and had no previous athletic experience.

George Zimmerman Trial – Day 5

This page will be updated throughout the day with videos of today’s trial proceeding.

 

George Zimmerman Trial – Day 4

The defense is not making a good impression to the jury.  Don West badgers witnesses and it is clearly seen that he mixes testimony and interjects his own descriptive words in attempt to paint State witnesses in a bad light.

In addition to this, Don West and Mark O’Mara are not defending George Zimmerman but rather, following a White Supremacist agenda to make this case solely a matter of race.  The Honorable Judge Nelson ordered that the State can use the word “profile” or “profiling” but not “racial profiling.”  Don West clearly used “racial profiling” when cross-examining DeeDee.

Let’s be clear — George Zimmerman was arrested because investigators found evidence to support a charge of 2nd degree murder.

Below are the videos from today’s proceeding provided by croakerqueen123.   A word to the White Supremacists and bigoted racists; please be respectful of croakerqueen123’s video pages.  If you (meaning, White Supremacists and bigoted racists) don’t like that she takes time to record live stream and make them available on her Youtube channel, then get your own software, learn how to use it, and open your own Youtube channel.

Regarding part 4, croakerqueen123 wrote;

Some got cut out. They looked at the witness’ twitter account, and BLDR had some issues with twitter, and it turned out she was not following Robert Zimmerman (but there is spec BLDR was logged in his account still, and it was saying HE wasn’t following) I will try to find that part, and post it as soon as I can.

(Administrator’s note.  Croakerqueen123 now has the video where the witness’ Twitter account is discussed. It is below part 4.)

Thank you, croakerqueen123.  Your work and time is greatly appreciated.

George Zimmerman Trial – Day 3

The day begins with the court denying the defense’s motion regarding entry of tapes of Zimmerman’s NEN calls for the 6 months before he killed Trayvon Martin.

Thanks again to croakerqueen123 for recording the trial and uploading to YouTube.

 

George Zimmerman Trial – Day 2

Thanks to croakerqueen for the videos.   They will be added throughout the day as she makes them available.

 

Using Deadly Force in 40 Seconds

Phone records provide evidence that the numerous actions and words as told by George Zimmerman that caused him to use “self-defense” took place in less than one minute, and that time includes un-holstering his weapon, aiming, and making sure his left-hand was not in the path of the kill shot when he killed unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.   Possible?  No!

George Zimmerman is not adding in actions to his story.  Rather, he is completely making it up; from being approached 40 feet from where Trayvon’s body laid, to forensic evidence that provides Trayvon did not bash Zimmerman’s head in the sidewalk, neither place his hands over Zimmerman’s nose and mouth.

The 40 Ft. Stumble

Have we forgotten?  With motion hearings, arguments about discovery, beg feasts, and Mark O’Mara finally admitting there will be no pre-trial immunity hearing, it is easy to lose focus on who is on trial, and why.

Have we forgotten that George Zimmerman stated that Trayvon Martin approached him at the “T” and knocked him down with one punch?  After telling his story to law enforcement the evening he killed unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman was told that he would be required to come to the crime scene the next day and show law enforcement what happened.

At the crime scene, Zimmerman realized that his one-punch at the “T” knocked him down backwards story was not consistent with the head bashing, wiggling to the grass story.   Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin about 40 feet south of the “T”.  At his re-enactment, Zimmerman had to wing-it, and in doing so, contradicted what he told law enforcement less than 24 hours earlier.

The following video recaps Zimmerman’s first statement to police about being knocked down backwards with one punch from Trayvon Martin.  It also provides excerpts from Zimmerman’s first bond hearing, including Detective Gilbreath’s statement that Zimmerman’s story about wiggling from the concrete to the grass is not consistent with the evidence that the State found.

Killer and accused murderer George Zimmerman’s trial is scheduled to begin on June 10, 2013 with jury selection.

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.
