    Hopefully someone remembers or can point me to the spot to find it, but, where was the Arizona Tea and Skittles found on Trayvon? Were they in his pocket of the hoodie he was wearing? I have a theory about the "broken nose" that Zimmerman supposedly suffered.

    Also, most hoodies have the pocket in the front center near the waist, yes?

    TIA

    Now, the city will pay an outside agency to look into how Lee handled the teen's death.

    I believe I read the items were in TM's pockets, I'll try to find.

    ABC News: Photo taken after Trayvon Martin shooting shows bloody George Zimmerman
    http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/...hooting/nMdbw/
    Sources tell ABC News that investigators have seen the photograph and are aware of the photographer’s story.

    The person who took the photograph told ABC News he heard Martin and Zimmerman fighting before the shooting and that after Martin was killed, Zimmerman asked the photographer to call Zimmerman’s wife, allegedly blurting out, “Man, just tell her I shot someone.”

    GPS and other data embedded in the photo shows it was taken at the scene with an iPhone just three minutes after the shooting, according to ABC News.


    Then we have other commentary from GZ 'constituents'

    April 20
    First of all, to you, Mr. Taaffe, do you believe it helped George Zimmerman to take the stand today?

    TAAFFE: Absolutely. George is being George. Nancy, a couple weeks ago you wanted to see blood on a shirt. Now you have blood on the head. So, America, you have your blood. I`m also going to share with you this, that was a photo of George Zimmerman, and I know who the neighbor was that took it. And he came forward only to support George Zimmerman. And more of our neighbors are coming out --

    GRACE: So, I`m taking it to believe --

    TAAFFE: Are coming out to support him. They are going to support him.

    "This guy looks like he is up to no good or he's on drugs or something....." ~ Behaving strangely. Possibly on drugs or illegal activity.

    "It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about......" ~ Gathering (loitering) for an extended or unusual period of time. Possible burglary, arson, or drug dealing.

    "He's got his hands in his waistband......." and "He's coming to check me out, he's got something in his hands, I don't know what his deal is......" ~ With any sort of weapon(s). Possibly planning any number of crimes. and Carrying, concealing or transporting anything unusual. Possible burglar carrying stolen property.

    "He's running......" and "He ran......" ~ Running, especially if carrying something of
    value. Possible suspect fleeing scene of crime.


    Now, if Zimmerman knew to report those specific things to get the SPD to the complex quickly then how did he not know to NOT follow Trayvon (or any other "suspicious" person) since that is also clearly stated in the Neighborhood Watch Handbook and was covered during the training class?!? I truly am starting to believe that Zimmerman fully intended to force Trayvon to stop where he was at all costs, even if it meant shooting him. If that is the case then I don't see how in the world SYG can be used for Zimmerman's benefit.

    I don't find it odd that he was looking for the behaviors listed in the handbook. And, GZ's story has been that he was looking for an address, not following TM with the intent of detaining him. IMO, he should have stayed in his car but I don't think the prosecution will be able to convincingly claim that GZ left his car with the intent to shoot TM. IMO, so far, the evidence is just not there.

    This needs repeating....excellent post! thanks for putting all of that together...geez, makes you wonder if he was carrying notes with him to remind him what to say....did anyone ever find out if LE issued a search warrant for his truck?

    I said, "by CLAIMING such threats" - not "by being threatened". Please don't parse my words.

    BTW... I haven't seen any such claims by Trayvon's parents. Have you?

    I agree. GZ called the police 46 times. In a majority of the calls, he was in no direct danger, and neither was anyone else. Why is he not calling LE all of a sudden?

    Nobody's really threatening him, except the Black Panther Party, and the few nutjobs on social media who have nothing better to do...

    I wouldn't consider the threats online viable, but if someone contacted the family directly, that's different...

    I believe that was 46 times over a period of 5 or 6 years. Possibily once he moved there but not in a year. jmo

    It's the prosecution's burden to prove their case.

    It is my opinion, they are gonna have a really hard time proving 2nd degree murder to 12 jurors without a reasonable doubt.

    The investigator already said, on the stand, they don't have evidence of certain things they are claiming.

    I don't think we know half of the evidence the Prosecutors have. They have to have something to be able to charge him with 2nd Degree Murder.

    Thus it is not LE stating that this was where TM was. SFD was told to "stage" at one address.

    As well if my calculations are correct we have not heard from 2 witnesses.

    Since there were four or more residences per building, do you think it's possible that residents were in the habit of referring to the green behind the entire building as "my backyard" or "behind my house"? Do we know whether the green areas were commonly held or whether each unit "owned" the grass directly behind it?

    Each resident, of course, would give his or her own address to the dispatcher and the dispatcher would repeat the address given without being able to see the precise location of the body.

    So, given what we know now, isn't it possible that TM's body was lying pretty much anywhere from the point where the sidewalks intersected down to the opposite end of the adjacent buildings?

    I agree with you that the exact location is very important: the farther TM was from the cross of the "T", the less likely GZ's story becomes. And I assume that the first responders will be able to locate the body more precisely than the dispatchers who merely repeated what they were told.
    I don't know anything more than what they tell us as to the location of TM's body. To me, I don't see how it can get more clear than what the SPD report says:



    And what the SFD dispatcher says that the body is "lying in the grass in the back yard of 2831 Retreat View Circle".

    The SPD report narrative of Officer Smith also adds considerable reason to believe the location shown below is correct when he tells us two other things in the above narrative.

    (1) He parked his squad car in front of 2821 Retreat View Circle

    (2) He SAW the body, face down in the grass, as he walked in between the buildings.



    Officer Smith was the first responder. It was dark. He could not have seen a body "lying face down" in the grass if the body was not close to the location I have shown as opposed to the other end.


    But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops. Luke 12, 2-3

    There is so much snark I could write about that but I'm curling my fingers and holding back.

    Let me just say that it seems the City of Sanford perhaps gave Chief Lee free reign for so long that now they don't know how to display any oversight of the police department. Hence the "outside agency."

    Answered my own question....

    (from the law group that I asked Grandmaj about posting the other night in which she said I could).

    http://www.husseinandwebber.com/stand_your_ground.html

    Thus, under the procedures outlined in Petersen, prosecutorial immunity does not attach under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law by way of mere factual assertion. The issue is raised pre-trial through the filing of a Motion for Declaration of Immunity and/or Dismissal. To obtain such a declaration by the trial court, a hearing is held where the defendant must demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence his or her qualifications for immunity. This essentially reverses the burden of proof traditionally at play in a criminal case. The defense presents the evidence, shows that the statutory prerequisites have been met, and requests that the court grant the motion and appropriate relief. If the Motion is granted, the defense then files a Motion to Dismiss, as there is no longer a legal basis to proceed with the prosecution. The Motions for immunity and dismissal are frequently consolidated into a single filing.

    I found an article that had a quote from Crump that stated the tea and skittles were in his jacket pocket but I wanted to make sure that there was other proof of it since Crump will not be considered a good source for that information based on some of the opinions I have seen. I have to go take care of some RL things but will continue to search when I get a chance. Thank you to those that have tried to help me find the information.
