Talkleft profiles "Witness 8," who is going to testify after all. We know this 'cause she tweeted a picture of her "court nails" recently.

So I kind of jumped into it in the middle of the cross-examination, but apparently one of the state's witnesses who says she thinks she saw Zimmerman on top admitted she based it on the photos of Martin as a 12-year-old we've all seen and that the prosecutors have literally never showed her a current photo of Martin.

Ouch.

Oh, and apparently she equivocated and said she wasn't sure who was on top.

That hurts.

The Prosecution is fumbling this. It's clear they weren't ready for trial.
Quote:
“I don’t know what a gun sounds like, but I heard three popping noises,” she said, stressing that she saw someone lying face-down on the ground. Evidence has shown there was only one gunshot. She saw Mr. Zimmerman “put his hands up,” she said, adding, “He said, ‘I shot him’ and I saw the police officer handcuff his hands behind his back.”
Quote:
But under questioning from Zimmerman lead defense attorney Mark O'Mara, Bahadoor agreed that this was her first time mentioning such detail. O'Mara then attempted to paint Bahadoor as compromised, using her own Facebook account against her.

O'Mara brought an open laptop to Bahahoor on the stand.

O'Mara: "Is this your Facebook? Is this your page?"

Bahadoor: "Yes"

O'Mara: "Tell me what that says on your Facebook, front page right there. Could you read that?"

Bahadoor: "Prosecute the killer of our son, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin."

So Witness 8 has apparently started testifying. The direct is over and commentors seem to think she did better than expected, though she sounded heavily rehearsed. There's a surprise.

I only saw a little of it, but hearing her speak makes me wonder why Martin would want to spend all day talking to her on the phone.

If they don't have a case, it's hard to blame them for fumbling it.

The noble OJ prosecution team might be blamed for fumbling a strong case back in 1994.

And if you remember, they could have certainly gone with Murder One but they downplayed it. Here they obviously overplayed it.

Had Z been charged with some sort of Manslaughter or similar charge, many who think he has been overcharged ( like me ) would have felt it much more just had he been "non-politically charged".

^^ The cross of W8 is here; the direct is the prior video.

The defense attorney figures out fast that she's impatient, which he subtly uses to let her make a fool of herself.

Her meltdown towards the end was incredible.

Alas, she does not look like she could be Obama's daughter!

Here's one take on her testimony:

http://www.talkleft.com/story/2013/6/26/223210/512/crimenews/-Rachel-Jeantel-Court-Antics-and-How-Martin-Profiled-Zimmerman
Quote:
Rachel Jeantel was a train wreck as a witness. She did not help the state's case. She exposed the manipulations of Team Crump. She was impeached on a few significant matters (see below the fold.) And she admitted multiple lies. It was cringe-worthy but you couldn't take your eyes off it.

Most strikingly, she made Trayvon Martin out to be the profiler of Zimmerman. She said (on direct exam no less by the prosecutor) that shortly after first spotting Zimmerman, Martin described Zimmerman to her as a "Crazy-a*s Cracker" and later, described Zimmerman a few times as "this ni*ga" (as in this ni*ga following him.)

At her deposition, she couldn't identify Trayvon as the person crying out for help. Today, she tried to deny it, but when impeached with the transcript, admitted she told the defense, "It could be, like I said, I don't know. He has a baby voice some days, you know it's not."

Her answer to why she didn't tell the police about her being the last one to speak with Trayvon was laugh-out loud funny: "They said they got the guy, I thought they were supposed to call me." [More...]

She doesn't watch the news, she had no idea Trayvon really died until Tuesday, when a friend sent her a text of an article mentioning his name. Until then, she thought the rumors at school were just rumors. She didn't know as of March 18 when Tracy Martin first called her that GZ had not been arrested. She didn't know about any protests or media coverage because she doesn't watch the news (only occasionally the weather.)

It goes on.

Someone in the Talkleft forums pointed out that she sent at least one tweet about CNN and HLN, in regards to the Z/T affair, though it was apparently long after the shooting.

With the time he's had to prepare, the defense attorney could really hammer her tomorrow.

What does it mean, profiling-wise, for someone to be describe as both a "cracker" and a "n-ger"?

White-Hispanic?
