killing Trayvon - Page 226

post #3376 of 6250
Catching a little of the trial now, Zimmerman's attorney is doing a great job of using leading questions in cross-examination of a witness that isn't even adverse to his case. Makes you wonder why the prosecutors bothered to call this guy at all.

The only possible way is if the Jury is concerned about political fallout. How much have they been exposed to the idea "If Zimmerman walks the community will riot" is key.

Jesus, are there no physical fitness requirements for cops anymore?

EDIT - I mean with cops like that it's no wonder Zimmerman wanted to start a neighbourhood watch. Waiting for that guy to come save you from a home invasion or burglary would be like waiting for the next ice age to save your home from a fire.

Prosecutor Guy is going over several images of the neighborhood and photos of Zimmerman's bloody face and head. Smith says Zimmerman was wearing a red and black jacket.

"The back of it was wetter than the front of it. It was also covered in grass," said Smith.

Zimmerman was also wearing blue jeans.

"The back was wetter than the front," said Smith.

I can't wait to see closing arguments in this case. How the State is possibly going to spin this kind of thing I can't imagine.

It seems to me the state is setting up for some "Noble Fight BS" they can feed the public, like Garcetti did after OJ.

Political Correctness and the Race Bait & Fear industry wanted Z to be charged. Well, after a lot more BS he was charged. AAMOF he is overcharged.

When the State accepted this jury I immediately thought of some "Noble Fight BS" by them. In any universe, including this one, they can't win with the case they've been putting on. And note how quiet the "usual suspects" have been. No press conferences by Al, Jesse and the gang. They know Z might well be found not guilty and this case, given the specific charges, is so spurious legally that the "Riot Card" is best saved for other opportunities.

Yes, Al and Jesse have been surprisingly silent. Probably because Trayvon's mom already got a financial settlement from the HOA. Nancy Grace appears to be the only one making noise to convict Z.

I'd like to see the defense move for a directed verdict at the close of the Starr's case. Or not even put on a defense. The prosecution has been so laughable so far.

I doubt anyone that would potentially participate in these riots will know anything other than Zimmerman was not convicted. I would be shocked if Sharpton and others like Melissa Harris Perry abstain from pouring gasoline on this.

They aren't required or obligated to save you from anything let alone respond to a request for assistance. Damn Harvey, I know you know this. WTF?

2nd degree murder? No. Some kind of reckless homicide/manslaughter thing. That I can go along with.

From what I'm gathering this could go down as one of the "best" dog and pony shows ever.

The media has moved on to spending its time defending, er, promoting,  Rachel Jeantel.

Yeah, I saw that article. Sure, Jeantel understands English as well as West. And probably better than HarveyBirdman LOL

How long before Jeantel is offered a show on MSNBC. I would watch it. Many years ago I used to watch Jim and Tammy Baker on their morning show. They were as good and funny as Monty Python and they acted serious.

A Jeantel show could be a smash hit in that way. Bill O'Reilly had Megyn Kelly to help ratings. Why can't Al S. have Jeantel to help ratings?

Another state's witness, the confused [edit: teacher? physical therapist? whatever] , apparently lied about qualifying for the olympics.

Nancy Grace! I didn't even know she was still in the limelight. Surely one of the most toxic human beings in America!

Watching this from the far side lines, I can't imagine why the prosecution would go forwarth with this. Wouldn't it be in their best interest to pull the plug?

Nah. Almost no one is following the trial closely. Most people get their news from TV or a liberal paper like the New York Times, which tries to give "balanced" commentary when something they're sympathetic to is in trouble. Notice the articles in the popular liberal magazines complaining about how racism has caused poor "Dee Dee" to be mistreated online.

If the prosecutors just gave up, that'd be news, and most people would end up thinking it was because they're racists.
