Discussion in 'George Zimmerman Trial/Trayvon Martin' started by Tricia, Jul 8, 2013.
A very relevant F A C T. :seeya:
The female ME only works on dead people.. She does not treat live ones. It does not matter what his injuries turned out to be, and a broken nose is not nothing..
What matters as a matter of LAW is that he felt his life was in danger and that his person was under attack. IF he had no outward injuries at all that would still apply because it is the assumption of the one being attacked,Not us that matters.
This judge definitely deserves some Al Pacino lawyer to yell "No, YOU'RE out of order!"
No offense Horace, but I have yet to see proof of a violent background with TM. What I have seen that includes violence is the same stupid stuff I see on about 50 percent of teenagers social media (The fight over the bike he recorded, the "bird flipping" pics, the tough talk in his tweets, etc.).
If one was inclined they could go to twitter, facebook, and youtube and probably find about a hundred kids like him in a 10 minute span.
It reminds me of something I saw about a dad seeing his kids facebook open. I won't link it, but I can post what was said-
"This Facebook update, posted by a dad who came upon his son Chris's profile when the teenager forgot to log off, is the best Facebook update we've ever seen:
"To all of Chris' friends: This is his father. My son carelessly left his account logged in so I decided to snoop around. Upon reading my son's personal information, I would like to clear a few things up. My son is not a "gangsta," he will not "beat a ho's ass" and he will most certainly not "roll a fatty wit his boyz." So for all of those who think he is some hard a** ****, think again...he is Chris, a 15 year old kid that was afraid of the dark untill he was 12 and cried at the end of Marley and Me."
My point is, social media posturing most times does not equal reality.
Not saying it is smart on these kids parts, but it is not out of the norm.
As has been reported, the female ME that testified to the minor nature of GZ's injuries has some.........issues.
Agree with all you said- especially the reflexive lying. Are we to believe he did nothing to defend himself at all? He will not admit to anything that shows his obviously agressive behavior that night. He is still loathe to admit he made a mistake by following a teen home to his residence. God's will, my patootey!
It is also troubling to see posts with links to facts that refute the blatant misstatements and distortions disappear with lightning speed.
conservativetreehouse.com does do a media and investigative study of the Martin family..in response to ScarlettScarpetta..can get link if ya need..They have info re: the step mom etal....right now have 2 windows open..not able to open more....
When anyone other than that police officer is on the stand testifying as to what were the statements.
I didn't see any crying either BUT it was described as " completely broke down in emotional tears " et al in reports of it...frankly I can't stand to look at him...that's the case for most defendents who are on trial for murder...I watch them at first...but when they show no remorse or even slightly flinch at the pain of their victim's family, I tune them out. IMO
I think GZ so-called injuries are blown out of all proportion as well as his exemplary actions, and his fear of an unarmed boy. IMO
I think GZ feels very sorry for himself, for having to stand trial like other shooters. He put himself above the law. IMO
The PA testified as a prosecution witness the first week.
Of course, that and the already exhaustive cross examination by Don West will not prevent the defense from calling her back for another round of boring and inconclusive testimony. IMO
Serino reminds me of Columbo. jmo
When I was teaching at a college I had a secretary to whom I often dictated letters. She would type them and I would sign them. What's wrong with that?
What are you talking about?? Who's fans?
In regards to Miss Jeantel, I disagree with your implication that she is an educated pillar of society. Did you watch the same testimony I did? I don't care how many languages she speaks. She could not read. She was IMO combative on the witness stand and did not come across as being well-spoken OR articulate. Not even a little bit.
No way to get past this.. HIs dad said.. NO.... As per non partial witness.
The fact that you find his outward appearances; physical, gun photos on his cell phone, profanity-laced speech, tough talk; those of a 'typical' teen does not mean he was not violent nor menacing. It means that judging by the number of kids who exhibit the same outward appearances who do exhibit violent and menacing behavior, we've got a real problem in this country.
Whoah!! Thanks for your kind efforts.
Albeit what I saw before his FB account was deleted was how TM was studing for his SATS, wanted to go into Aviation et al.
THANK YOU. I logged in specifically to say thank you for this. I'm so very tired of people claiming TM was violent based on some totally unverified tweets, but who will completely ignore GZ's actual police record that documents a history of violent actions. It's completely frustrating.
You believe this young woman served at RJ's 'secretary' then? I don't even see how your situation is comparable.
I assume you were able to read the letters you signed?
