New Sanford police chief to review department in Trayvon Martin case
The city of Sanford took its first step toward fixing its damaged police department Friday, when an interim chief took the helm of the troubled force.
Richard Myers, former police chief of Colorado Springs, will be tasked with conducting a sweeping review of the police department to determine if any long-standing problems led to the fiasco that cost the prior chief his job.

Trayvon suspended THREE times

Trayvon suspended THREE times for 'drugs, truancy, graffiti and carrying burglary tool' and did he attack bus driver too?

New picture emerges of victim as parents claim it's all a smear...

"Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the months before he was shot dead by a neighborhood watchman, it emerged today.
The new claims, revealed in a leaked report, paint a different picture of a teenager who frequently found himself in trouble with authorities.
It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.
The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a 'burglary tool' - a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.
Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a 'marijuana pipe' and an empty baggie with traces of the drug."

George Zimmerman: Emails pour into inboxes of Sanford city officials

George Zimmerman: Emails pour into inboxes of Sanford city officials

"One woman from New York state wrote:
“This proves that your town is full of racist rednecks!”
Mahany said there are many more emails with a hateful tone.
“It is the tip of the iceberg, I would say all total there are probably almost 2,000,” said Mahany.

As developments in the case came to light, the message changed.
“The tone of the emails started to become more positive as little bits and pieces of the evidence came out,” said Mahany.
One specific turning point, according to Mahany, was when the city commission in Sanford denied Chief Bill Lee’s resignation.
A man from Montana wrote:
“Good for you Patty, thank you for standing YOUR ground”

3rd NBC Reporter Fired

Today Show's Lilia Luciano Axed for George Zimmerman 911 Call

"NBC reporter Lilia Luciano is now the third news staffer fired for her role in misleading the public about George Zimmerman's 911 call to the police the night he killed Trayvon Martin.

Perhaps all these people made simple mistakes by airing a poorly edited version of the 911 call, but it's not likely.

These are people who are experts in audio production, and they were quite aware of what they were doing. They sewed two separate pieces of audio together to create the impression Zimmerman is a racist redneck."

The Sarah Palin Defense Strategy

The Sarah Palin Defense Strategy
George Zimmerman’s lawyer is using social media like a pro.


"In cases like Zimmerman’s, though, the media will serve up endless coverage whether O’Mara stays silent or goes on TV every day. (The prosecutor in the case announced the charges against Zimmerman in a nationally televised press conference while the screen behind her flashed adorable pictures from Trayvon Martin’s childhood.) The defense is responding to the coverage, not driving it."

Prelude to a Shooting

Prelude to a Shooting

"During the time Zimmerman was in hiding, his detractors defined him as a vigilante who had decided Martin was suspicious merely because he was black. After Zimmerman was finally arrested on a charge of second-degree murder more than six weeks after the shooting, prosecutors portrayed him as a violent and angry man who disregarded authority by pursuing the 17-year-old.

But a more nuanced portrait of Zimmerman has emerged from a Reuters investigation into Zimmerman's past and a series of incidents in the community in the months preceding the Martin shooting."

On To London!

Trayvon Martin family wraps up Birmingham visit

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT)- The family of slain teen Trayvon Martin wrapped up their tour of Birmingham with a little sight-seeing. After a fellowship breakfast at their hotel, the family visited the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. They had planned a meet-and-greet with 16th Street pastor Reverend Arthur Price, but a baggage mix-up delayed and eventually cancelled the meeting. The family spoke of the warm reception they've received all over the country, but particularly in Birmingham, the heart of the civil rights movement. "It was important for us to visit Birmingham, [because] they did honor Trayvon as an honorary citizen of the city of Birmingham. We felt a debt of gratitude," says his father Tracy Martin.

During their visit, the family raised awareness about conflict resolution, as well as funds for the newly formed Trayvon Martin Foundation. The next stop for the family: London, because they feel this issue is not limited to the United States. [IMG]http://*************.net/Smileys/default/anicscissors2.gif[/IMG]

Zimmerman is not expected to be at Tuesday's hearing, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Neither is his attorney, Mark O'Mara, or special prosecutor Angela Corey.

George Zimmerman Pleads Not Guilty To Trayvon MartinMurder Charges

May 8, 2012

Quote:
Zimmerman, his attorney, and the lead prosecutors in the case are preparing for the discovery part of trial preparation. The disclosure by the prosecution of all relevant documents in this case could come as early as his week. Much of it will be redacted in order to protect the identity of witnesses.

Zimmerman's attorney tells ABC News that he is expecting to be inundated with thousands of documents related to the case. Included in the files are expected to be hundreds sent to the Sanford, Fla., police department about the case, some of them apparently racist in nature.

George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case: Interim Police Chief Richard Myers talks neighborhood watch

Myers says watch programs need 'good, hard look'



Posted: 4:36 AM
Last Updated: 2 hours and 10 minutes ago


•CNN Wire Staff
The man tasked with leading the police department in Sanford, Florida, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin killing said communities should "take a good, hard look at who is selected," for neighborhood watch programs.

But, said Sanford's interim Police Chief Richard Myers, he still supports the programs.

"Neighborhood watch is at work in literally thousands of neighborhoods across the country and with no problems whatsoever," Myers told CNN's Erin Burnett on Tuesday. "I think the problems emerge from who the person is and perhaps there's a cause for communities to take a good, hard look at who is selected or who volunteers.

"Let's not kill the concept because of one bad, really bad outcome."

In a letter to the NAACP his family refuted the allegation(s), and provided specific example of how George had put himself on the line for his black community.

The letter also described how Zimmerman was one of “very few” in Sanford, Fla., who spoke out publicly to condemn the “beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer.”:

“Do you know the individual that stepped up when no one else in the black community would?” the family member wrote. “Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church‐goers to get out of church so that he could hand them fliers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8th, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??”

“That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Ironic isn’t it?”
BUT THEN THERE IS THIS: Purported Zimmerman family letter demands NAACP 'call off the dogs'


From page 2:



Indeed, the city's record and minutes of public meetings at Sanford city hall show that no meeting or workshop took place on January 8th.

January 8th was a Saturday, which would have been an unusual day to convene a commission meeting,particularly without all five elected members.

McCarty said the January 3rd special meeting called by the then- outgoing mayor, Linda Kuhn, was for the sole purpose of creating a process to pick a new chief of police. Ware is not mentioned in the minuted of either the January 3rd or January 10th commission meetings.

Zimmerman gets continuance
2:56 p.m. EST, May 9, 2012|By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel

A judge has granted George Zimmerman's request for a continuance, meaning his attorney is not due back in court in Sanford until Aug. 8.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. signed that order Tuesday, the same day defense attorney Mark O'Mara filed his request for the delay.

What's being delayed is a routine hearing called "docket sounding," a proceeding that often lasts less than five minutes at which attorneys tell the judge the status of their cases and what work still needs to be done, for example, that a witness needs to be deposed or the state needs to turn over a security camera photo that's in evidence.

The continuance bought O'Mara six more weeks. Without it, he would have been due back in court June 27.
