    Trayvon's killer said to make self-incriminating statements

    "Defendant (Zimmerman) has provided law enforcement with numerous statements, some of which are contradictory, and are inconsistent with the physical evidence and statements of witnesses," the prosecutors said in their court filing.

    They said the statements by Zimmerman were admissible in court and "in conjunction with other statements and evidence help to establish defendant's guilt in this case."

    "Mr. Allen's resort to the typical 'scorned woman' defense is an injudicious attempt to to divert attention from his failure to act as a responsible parent and adult."

    Trayvon Martin’s parents in town to condemn violence

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1...-violence.html

    Fighting back tears, the parents of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin stood beside the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. and relatives of Chicago area murder victims
    on Saturday to stress the need to end “senseless gun violence.”..........

    As she spoke about her son, Fulton also detailed her family’s Justice for Trayvon Foundation, which helps teens identify signs of racial profiling. She also called on Congress to amend Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, ........

    By law, the Florida-based county’s morgue couldn’t let the elder Martin see the body. Instead, he was forced to identify his son by gruesome crime scene photos.

    So what's left? Documents filed with the court by both the state and defense seeking to keep certain records under sealoffer a peek behind the curtain and preview potentially important evidence.


    But based on what what's out there now,legal experts say it's unlikely there's a bombshell waiting.


    "I think that we have seen the best the state has to offer to this point," said Bill Sheaffer, an Orlando defense attorney and WFTV-Channel 9 legal analyst.

    Prosecutors have the girl's phone records, as well as Zimmerman's and Trayvon's, but those have not been released. If records confirm the call took place as she described, it would lend credibility to the state.

    "However, if that phone record comes back and says that she was not on the phone with him, that is huge for the defense," says Lyle Mazin, an Orlando defense attorney. "If [the prosecution] says she was on the phone, prove it."

    The charge Zimmerman faces requires the state to demonstrate a "depraved mind" acting in a manner "regardless of human life." It's a high burden, attorneys say, and one not well supported by the known evidence.

    "It's a tragic incident that this young man died, but they have to be able to prove [the charge]," Mazin said

    Zimmerman wants evidence private in Martin case
    Written by MIKE SCHNEIDER
    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Attorneys in the Trayvon Martin case want some evidence kept out of the public realm until trial.



    Prosecutors and George Zimmerman's attorneys filed motions Thursday asking a judge to keep statements Zimmerman gave detectives and the names and addresses of witnesses from being publicly released. Both items normally would be part of the public record under Florida law.

    Zimmerman's attorney also wants to keep private text messages, emails and journal entries Zimmerman made, at least until he can review them. Prosecutors asked that Martin's cell phone records not be released publicly.

    TRAYVON MARTIN

    Change or repeal ‘Stand Your Ground’
    BY FREDERICA S. WILSON
    Wilson.house.gov

    Many bills are adopted in Congress and in state legislatures every year that have controversial and unintended consequences that are revealed after the bill becomes law. Stand Your Ground is one such law and like so many others, certain segments of Stand Your Ground should be amended out — or Stand Your Ground should be repealed.

    George Zimmerman has excellent grounds for lawsuits
    May 29, 2012 4:11 pm

    The evidence Special Prosecutor Angela Corey disclosed in the shooting of black teenager Trayvon Martin suggests it's more likely she'll face charges of prosecutorial misconduct than will George Zimmerman be convicted of second-degree murder.
    ...snip..
    A multimillion-dollar judgment may accomplish what shame cannot. Mr. Zimmerman has excellent grounds for lawsuits, particularly against NBC, which altered a 911 tape to make it seem he made a racist statement. Once the murder charge is dismissed, he should sue.

    Without establishing that the killing was racially motivated, any claim that Zimmerman committed second-degree murder in shooting Martin will not survive. Interestingly, the state in its charging affidavit simply claimed Zimmerman "profiled" Martin, not that he racially profiled him.

    This allows the state to keep such a claim open-ended, likely knowing early on that it couldn't sustain the burden of proving racial profiling. More and more, this case looks like it will be thrown out in criminal court and eventually be headed to civil court.

    Since everyone is talking about Trayvon Martin, the kid who was shot due to his physical appearance, I’ll take a moment to talk about Tray, the kid I grew up with since we were toddlers, a person our friends and family loved to be around

    Court motions preview evidence public hasn't seen in George Zimmerman case

    http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/...nce-statements

    ............. In a motion asking Judge Kenneth Lester to seal some evidence in the case, prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda writes Zimmerman's statements "are contradictory, and are inconsistent with the physical evidence and statements of witnesses."

    Michael Grieco, a Miami defense attorney and former Miami-Dade prosecutor, said Zimmerman's statements could give the state "a tool to attack his credibility" and weaken his self-defense claim..........

    Grieco said it's possible the state hopes to meet that burden with other evidence showing Zimmerman's frustration over recent burglaries in his community and his dissatisfaction with local law enforcement.

    In his call to police on the night of the shooting, Zimmerman said of Trayvon, "these *******s always get away." A year earlier, he blasted the Sanford Police Department as unprofessional at a community forum after going on a ride-along.

    As a prosecutor, "I would use these [examples] to paint a picture of a very angry man," Grieco said. "A wannabe cop."

    Zimmerman's attorney actually agrees with prosecutors and wants to keep certain evidence sealed from the public.

    "What the media and the general public has to remember is that there's a lot that we cannot release by law, so we're asking people to wait and look at all of the evidence," said Corey. "We've been asking them to do that from the beginning, but no one wants to do that; I don't know how to resolve this."

    Attorneys will square off in a Seminole County courtroom Friday over whether more evidence in the George Zimmerman murder trial should be kept out of the public eye.

    At issue is whether personal information about Zimmerman and the teenager he killed, such as phone records, autopsy photos and statements to police, would be so damaging if made public that they’d ruin a chance at a fair trial.

    Assistant State Attorney Bernardo de la Rionda and defense attorney Mark O’Mara have joined forces and filed motions to the court to seal things such as Zimmerman’s statements to police, his text messages and the names and addresses of 22 witnesses who saw or heard the fighting between Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.

    George Zimmerman's bond revoked in shooting of Trayvon Martin

    SANFORD – In a shocking and unexpected turn, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester has revoked George Zimmerman's bond in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

    The decision came after revelations that Zimmerman and his wife may have conspired to lie about thousands of dollars in donations they'd collected before his bond hearing.

    In a new motion, prosecutors accused Zimmerman and his wife of lying to the judge during a bond hearing about money they collected for his defense.

    Prosecutors allege Zimmerman's wife knew about the donations her husband had collected through a PayPalaccount, but didn't mention the money at his bond hearing.
