Go figure! Look how Obama played to it during the whole fake campaign against Zimmerman orchestrated by the NBC/Left agitators.

Trayvon Martin's girlfriend lied to prosecutors under oath. No doubt, her testimony, while fake, is accurate.

Trayvon Martin's girlfriend, the state's most important witness in the George Zimmerman murder case, was caught in a lie, it was revealed Tuesday. It was not the first piece of misinformation tied to her, but it was the most damaging to date and left prosecutors in a very awkward position. They had to publicly acknowledge that their star witness had lied under oath and had to answer questions about what they intend to do about it.

Reporters asked: "Will you charge the 19-year-old Miami woman with perjury?" The state's lead prosecutor, Bernie de la Rionda, gave an ambiguous answer: "You can all read the law and make your own decision."

Ah, the girl who says she heard the whole thing on the phone but didn't tell anyone until after the story had been in the national news for weeks.

Tough to charge someone for perjury for the story you forced them to regurgitate in the first place.

I listened to the testimony. The answer is a "mmm..yeah" to a leading, open-ended question--"Did you end up going to the hospital or somewhere"?

Couldn't sustain a perjury charge.

Couldn't sustain a perjury charge.

Also, I assume it is a statement relating to a non material issue, which may be the meaning of the "read the law" quip.

Yeah she's not going to get charged for perjury, but she lied about such weird non-important things, how can you believe anything she says at this point. She sounds like she might be a bit retarded

I don't think I agree about materiality. It sure seems material to me why the state's star witness didn't come forward sooner (until the defendant's account had been related in detail on the national news, even). That's why they keep bringing this up, to explain why she didn't respond like a normal person would have if her story was true.

I'm not clear on what the context of the statement is, but if she lied about where we was on the day of the funeral that would not seem material to any aspect of the case against Zimmerman. Is it awesome impeachment material? Sure.

The media of course distorts the hell out of the law, but what else is new? I like how they're plastering the stories with pictures of the kid that are obviously dated, presenting accounts of "witnesses" who didn't see anything (but know it was a bad shooting), insinuate that the guy murdered the kid because he's a racist, etc.

It does present an interesting question about self-defense: does the shooter have to prove it was, or does the state have to prove it wasn't? Traditionally self-defense is something you have to prove. Maybe it's different in Florida.

If he had half a brain the shooter would have claimed the kid tried to take his gun during the fight. We don't know what he actually said, though, do we?

MY friend, I will have to inform you that you are wrong, first paragraph! No need to read further! No, you do not have the right to start a fight and end it with a weapon while holding an CCW permit! You will loose in any court roomsmile.gif
