State of Florida vs George Zimmerman Trial (day 10 )

Judge Debra Nelson16(Los Angeles Times)Murder trials often turn on forensic evidence such as DNA analysis, the use of a weapon and the degree of injury to a suspect or victim. Those issues have been heatedly debated in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

But for the sequestered jury of six women, much may depend on how a mother is steadfastly convinced that she can recognize her son’s screaming pleas for help.

On Friday, both sides relied on the testimony of two anguished mothers to end the second week of proceedings and leave the jury with powerful sounds and images to consider over the weekend.

  1. Stop playing white people. You know damn well the screams are NOT Zimmerman. A child is dead & you’re stealing his last screams. JUST STOP IT!

    Longwood gym owner accused of attacking woman who conned him
    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

    A Seminole County gym owner has been jailed after investigators said he tried to get even with a woman who owed him money.

    According to court documents, Tina Mangiardi agreed to plead guilty in March after being accused of taking more than $2 million from investors as part of a Ponzi scheme.

    Adam Pollock, who runs Kokopelli’s Gym and Fitness Center in Longwood, was one of her investors, but he’s now in jail, accused of attacking the former model after realizing he invested in a scheme.

    Surveillance video obtained by Channel 9 shows Mangiardi, an admitted con artist, pulling into the parking lot of Kokopelli’s.

    She told police she was going there to pay a debt she owed to Pollock, but Mangiardi said once she was inside the gym, Pollock put on a pair of black gloves and pulled out a knife, threatening to cut off her fingers and toes as collateral.

    “Why did the defendant get out of his vehicle and chase my son?” “I was listening to the last moments of my sons life screaming for help.” When the gun went off, the screaming stopped. Trayvon Martin was dead. The fact that the screaming stopped after the shot is proof Trayvon Martin was the one screaming. Case closed. I share everyone’s anger that they are bringing in the fact of Trayvons blood test. I hope it opens the door to why the police didn’t take gz’s blood. The police are dirty, filthy, liars.

  5. This just grieves my soul to the core. The victim is being put on trial all b/c of the color of his skin.

    The George Zimmerman trial is the worst fear of every black family
    By David Dennis, The Guardian
    Sunday, July 7, 2013 13:28 EDT

    The Trayvon Martin case has been nothing short of heartbreak from the very beginning. Regardless of what anyone believes about Trayvon’s past, his innocence or George Zimmerman’s, the fact remains that a teenager is dead. I honestly didn’t think I would get emotionally broken up more than I was over the story that Rachel Jeantel’s friendship with Martin stemmed from the fact he was one of the only people who never picked on her. The story painted such a tragic picture of friendship and two people whose lives will never be the same.

    Then came this week’s testimonies and reactions from Trayvon Martin’s parents to leave me – and so much of America – floored. On Friday morning, Sybrina Fulton took the stand to talk about her son. As part of her testimony she had to identify her child’s screams in his finals seconds of life. Later in the day, Tracy Martin had to sit in court as the medical examiner, Dr Bao, explained how Trayvon died in severe pain and was alive for minutes after getting shot in the chest.

    Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Lord, I ask that you expose the Lies of the enemy. Lord you see and know all things, you know our hearts, and you know Zimmerman’s heart. There is nothing under the sun or in heaven that is hid from you. Lord you are the one and only true judge. Lord you said that vengeance is yours. Father God, I ask that you step in and avenge Trayvon’s death. He is your child and you said thou shalt not kill. George killed an unarmed child, Lord don’t let him get away with it. Expose the lies, deception, and tricks of the enemy. Trayvon’s blood is crying out from his grave. Hear his cry and the cries of your people. Lord, I’m asking that justice be done. You said whatsoever we ask in your name, you would grant it to us. I believe your word is true. In Jesus Name. Amen.

  15. Trayvon Martin Investigation Report Released
    May 18, 2012

    http://www.politicolnews.com/trayvon-martin-investigation-report-released/

    The investigative report was released today on the Travon Martin shooting and the involved details on George Zimmerman’s injuries which were heavily documented in the media reports.

    CNN actually showed the blood drops on Zimmerman’s back of the head, and an apparent fuzzy picture of Zimmerman’s broken nose that required no medical treatment. At the scene of the murder, Zimmerman was asked several times if he wanted to go to the hospital and he refused.

    References were made to some small minute amounts of THC in Trayvon Martin’s autopsy reports, that suggested he had used marijuana at some point. Attorneys for the Martin family concurred that this evidence is irrelevant and that the police declined to test Zimmerman for alcohol or drug although that would have been procedure in most murder cases.

    However no references were made to any drug tests performed on George Zimmerman the night of the murder. No blood samples, no urine samples were taken on the perpetrator, just the victim which indicates sloppy police work and an incomplete investigation by Sanford police. Police did not arrest George Zimmerman that night of the death he caused, not for any tests or for any charges to be laid at all.

    The documents revealed some interesting facts in the investigation that followed:

    Zimmerman at some point had blood droplets on the back of his head, from minor cuts.

    • Prescription Drugs Taken By George Zimmerman

      http://www.politicolnews.com/trayvon-martin-investigation-report-released/

      1) Temazepam – is a hypnotic, psycho active drug, used for short term insomnia, anti-anxiety, anticonvulant and muscle relaxant properties. Hypnotics are addictive, can cause daytime fatigue, motor vehicle crashes, cognitive impairments and falls.

      This drug temazepam also distorts normal sleep patterns, the limit of prescription is 2 – 4 weeks. It causes impairment of body steadiness.

      Side effects: depression, euphoria, amnesia, aggression, Violence, overstimulation, agitation have been reported. A person must ensure they get 8 hours sleep before taking temazepam, or side effects are increased.

      Contraindications: should be avoided by people who:

      have lack of coordination of muscles, severe hypoventilation, Sleep Apnea

      Severe Depression, suicidal tendencies, used with alcohol, narcotics, or other psychoactive drugs, Hypersensitivity.

      High Risk Groups: are those who are emotionally unstable, severe personality disorders, Borderline Personality disorder BPD.

      2) Librax a choldiazepoxide and clidinium bromide used for ulcers, IBS and gastritis prescribed for anxiety patients and is also addictive.Suddenly withdrawing from the drug causes anxiousness, sleeplessness and irritability.

      3) Adderall another drug given to patients with ADHD- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a psychostimulant. It is a given that ADHD patients, who are known to exhibit risky behavior. Adderall is not recommended in patients who exhibit signs of mental illness, and is sometimes used as an amphetamine stimulant, for its euphoric or “feelings of getting high” effects. In this case, George Zimmerman must have been diagnosed with ADHD to be prescribed this drug and must exhibit the characteristics of that illness.

      Unfortunately as usual the mainstream media twisted the evidence examples in the 182 page report and picked the most supportive to Zimmerman’s case.

      The evidence does not support the theory that Zimmerman feared for his life. Most likely the influence of Zimmerman’s prescription drugs appear to have a great impact on what happened the night of the murder of Trayvon Martin.

      Zimmerman could have done a number of things if he was suspicious of Trayvon Martin but the most important part was that he disobeyed the police, and did not stand down he pursued Trayvon and was actually running after him.

      • Ametia says:

        So the state has Zimmerman’s medical records which includes he has a history of prescription drug use; drugs that have a list of side effects we see rattled off on those tv commercials.

        This MOFO needs to GO DOWN FOR SECOND DEGREE MURDER,and send a meesage to the rest of those CaC wanna be cops and vigilantes

    Judge Debra Nelson allows toxicology report. Now jurors will find out about Trayvon’s use of marijuana.

    • Say it ain’t so! Why Judge Nelson? Why?

      • Ametia says:

        Is there a toxicology report for Zimmerman? Did the bungling, crooked SPD even order a toxicology report for Zimmerman? No! That mofo was allowed to roam free for 45 days after murdering Trayvon

      • Xena says:

        Remember the position taken by the State. Objections and rebuttal. The defense is wasting money on anyone to testify about the toxicology report.

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      The defense wants to be able to say that GZ had a reason to be suspicious of Trayvon and they want to attack Trayvon’s character. They want to paint Trayvon as a thug. That’s why they asked Trayvon’s brother they questions they did.

      I find it very hypocritcal that West was the one giving the debate for marijuana since his daughter seems to be on some type of drugs. I wonder if she get violent. Oh, let me hush.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Yep, I see how this trial is going. The defense wants to paint Trayvon as a thug and in racist minds that justifies gz murdering a child. Because after all, he rid the world of a thug. Smh!

        The only thing is that no one but Trayvon’s parents have spoken up regarding his character for the jury to hear. This trial is some BS. I’m tired of watching it.

      • Ametia says:

        Granny; I’m feeling you. Watching this debacle is so painful. But we can’t let up with our vigilance in calling out the lies, hate, deceit, unjust, crooked, racially biased ways of the USA judicial system and the unequal justice metered out for our men and boys.

        Nope! WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACKWARDS.

    • roderick2012 says:

      SG@, why are you surprised that Judge Nelson’s trick ass allowed more evidence in to smear Trayvon?

      She’s doing the bidding of Gov Rick Scott and Angela Corey.

      Both Scott and Corey’s supporters support George so they have Bernie and his two incompetents to throw the case hoping for some type of black uprising so that Scott can impress the good white people when he sends in police to kill black folks.

      Also I believe that the State of Florida is throwing the case because they know that the DOJ will file charges against George after he’s acquitted. So basically it’s a win-win for Scott and Corey.

  20. The toxicology report revealed Trayvon Martin had traces of Marijuana that medical examiner classified as minimal.

    • Here comes the swaying bs from Don West and GASP …Trayvon had a lighter. I carry a lighter..so fking what?

    • Ametia says:

      West is citing the Jody Arias case. John Guy is auguing that there is no evidence that the level of pot in Trayvon’s system caused him being MURDER. They’re going after Trayvon’s character.

      • If they do it opens up for Zimmerman’s character.

      • Xena says:

        Vanilla Ice Cream West is trying to say that the THC issue will give credibility to GZ’s description of Trayvon as being “on drugs or something.” The State can turn it around to its benefit by asking the “expert” if a reasonable person would get out of their vehicle to follow a person “on drugs or something” unless that person believed that the “intoxication” lessened the ability to resist and/or fight.

      • You’re helping me to keep my sanity, Xena!

      • Xena says:

        @SG2. Don’t start me preaching. :-) Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Even the ability to hear comes from God. It’s not our natural ears that hear naturally. Peter stood in front of a crowd of people and spoke when there were no microphones; no PA systems. Yet, 3,000 people heard him. Our God opens the spiritual ears of even the deaf although they cannot hear with their natural ears, for salvation is not limited to only those with completely functioning body parts. He shall open the ears of the jurors. It’s not what O’Mara says, or West says, or any witness. It’s what God says.

        He has given us three eternal things; faith, hope and love. That is what we have sent forth on behalf of Trayvon and his family.

        HOODIES UP!!!

      • Ametia says:

      O’Mara was hoping that Tracy would snap..that’s why he called him after all of the crackers lied about it being George screaming.

      Why in heaven is God punishing Tracy and Sybrina for seeking justice for their son?

      May O’Mara, West and everyone associated with the defense burn in the hottest part of Hades.

      • Xena says:

        @roderick2012.

        Why in heaven is God punishing Tracy and Sybrina for seeking justice for their son?

        It’s not punishment. Caterpillars go into cocoons and it is a dark and lonely place. They have a default faith because they are vulnerable. But, while in that place, they are being transformed. They form wings to fly free, no longer crawling. As they break free, their wings get stronger. Tracy and Sybrina are breaking free.

        That is why we feel helpless in comforting them at times, and can even think that they are being punished, because if we are instrumental in breaking the cocoon, their wings do not gain strength and they come out crippled, unable to crawl; unable to fly. They need to fly to plant eggs to bring forth more life. The life they bring is change and courage and pride to others so that creepy ass crackers won’t be so bold as to think they can commit murder and not face justice.

  33. Ametia says:

    Cleaned up version of a tape? GTFOH O’Mara.

    • Xena says:

      @Ametia. The FBI did enhance that tape. They heard GZ’s voice simultaneously with the screams. However, the tape remains under their jurisdiction because there is an ongoing investigation into GZ violating Trayvon’s Civil Rights. Rumor has it that the feds are also investigating the HOA (that includes Taaffe and GZ) for violating the Federal Fair Housing Act. That is why there are no witnesses for the State regarding GZ’s harassment in the state’s case. Those witnesses are for the feds.

    Mantei is cross examining Pollack! GET THAT MOFO, GET HIM!

    • Xena says:

      Here is what Mantei’s cross-examination established:
      1. GZ was a member of the gym since 2010. He took several months off at the end of 2011, and was back training in January 2012.
      2. GZ worked hard in training, although he did not advance quickly because he was obese (still is. Haha).
      3. GZ learned how to protect himself from blows to his face. (GZ had no defensive wounds on his hands.)
      4. GZ learned how to reverse when “mounted.” (If he was indeed mounted, GZ could have gotten free.)
      5. GZ learned how to apply wrist holds and take-downs. (In his statements, GZ clearly says that he pinned Trayvon’s arm to prevent him from getting the gun.)
      7. GZ learned how to use his feet and legs to balance when punching the bag. (Highly unlikely that Trayvon knocked him down with one punch.)
      8. Wrapping the hands and wearing boxing gloves protects the hands and wrists from injury. (Trayvon had no such injuries after purportedly punching a 208 lb man on his head and in his face.)

  42. Xena says:

    My guess was right. Mantei is cross examining Pollack.

  43. Ametia says:

    The jury is going to have to GRAPPLE with all that “Grapling” training that GZ wasn’t so proficient in. Pollack is not slick. I’m sure the defense has coached him well on DOWNPLAYING Zimmerman’s skills in the gym. That doesn’t count for the fact that GZ is a PREDATOR and KILLER.

    • Xena says:

      Any training such as GZ had, is an advantage over another person with no training. Trayvon was not in the same weight class as GZ. They were not in a ring where Trayvon anticipated having to fight. GZ wanted to test his skills physically, and with his gun.

      • roderick2012 says:

        “Any training such as GZ had, is an advantage over another person with no training.”

        That begs the question–why didn’t the State have its own MMA expert testify?

      • Xena says:

        @roderick2012.

        That begs the question–why didn’t the State have its own MMA expert testify?

        It’s not a matter that requires an expert. Rather, Adam Pollack is the person to testify because he supervised and its his gym. The State is cross-examining.

      • roderick2012 says:

        It’s not a matter that requires an expert. Rather, Adam Pollack is the person to testify because he supervised and its his gym.

        You just don’t get it do you?

        If you’ve been watching this entire town of Sanford is supporting George due to racism and Pollack isn’t going to tell the truth so why bother.

        The State is putting as little effort in attempting to convict George as possible.

        Any expert could testify that anyone with a minimum amount of experience would have been able to reverse whatever ‘mount’ Trayvon had on George.

        They could also testify to the fact that George’s weight difference gave him a tremendous advantage regardless of Trayvon’s experience.

      • Xena says:

        @roderick2012.

      • Ametia says:

        @ rodereick. Unlike the defense who wanted Serino to tell the jury what Tracy Martin said during the 911 call, the state knew the defense would bring on Pollack to say GZ was a weakling and a failure at body training and fighting. All they need to do is cross examine Pollack.

      • Ametia says:

      This whole trial is something straight out of the Twilight Zone. Trying to paint Trayvon as the aggressor and Zimmerman as the weak, helpless, victim?

      George Zimmerman is a coward, sociopathic murderer. I HATE THESE PEOPLE.

      • roderick2012 says:

        Ametia, it’s more like the Racist Twilight Zone.

        The George supporters will stoop to whatever level to get Fatback off!!

      • I’ve never see such wickedness.

  44. Ametia says:

    Let’s be clear here. Geroge Zimmerman had the MAA training, had the loaded 9mm gun, left his vehicle, hunted, stalked, shot, and MURDERED Trayvon. He didn’t need to DEFEND himself. Trayvon Martin needed to defend himself, and he wasn’t successful, with all those SKILLS and the loaded gun George Zimmerman had in his possession.

    • Xena says:

      I’m enjoying hearing Pollack testify that GZ’s gun could not be exposed for Trayvon to get to it if GZ was “mounted.”

        @Ametia. I have no doubt that the closing argument of prosecutors is going to be fantastic! They don’t argue every nuance giving O’Mara opportunity to twist and turn, and Vanilla Ice Cream West opportunity to flip and flop while having a melt-down.

        I think Vanilla Ice Cream West is working on his closing argument now although the State still has a rebuttal phase.

    • Ametia says:

      Now Pollack’s trying to say GZ didn’t have MAD skills in training. Naw son; too late.

  45. Ametia says:

    Adam Pollack, owns gym and is a trainer. Koppelli’s MMA KICKBOXING!

  46. Xena says:

    Defense now recalls Singleton. The jury must be tired as hell of O’Mara’s game.

    • Ametia says:

      Singleton’s a LIAR. Bernie going to recall her again. KEEP THE HEAT on this BITCH, Bernie. She said absolutely no doubt in her mind that Tracy said that wasn’t Trayvon’s voice on the 911 recording in her presence.

      • Xena says:

        What Singleton testified that Serino asked, and what Serino said he asked, are two different things. Bernie caught on to it when he questioned Serino. Did Serino ask if he recognized the voice? Serino said “no,” that he asked Tracy if it was his son’s voice. Singleton said that Serino asked Tracy if he recognized the voice.

  47. Ametia says:

    Bernie asked Serenio isn’t it norman for people to say “No” in disbelief. O’Mara object, JN allows the question. Serenio answers “YES.”

  48. Ametia says:

    How da HELL would a father listening to his son screaming for his very life NOT be EMOTIONAL. Doris Singleton, you’re a LIAR. Tracyshook his head and said “NO” in disbelief. Who would want to believe their son was dead? Just like Jahvaris said he didn’t want to believe Trayvon was dead either. NORMAL!

  49. Ametia says:

    Sereno played the “Lauer” 911 call to Tracy Martin. He said “Tracy was emotional, understandably so.”

    • Xena says:

      Hearing your son beg for his life, and scream in pain and for help, can result in a parent shaking their head “no.” Bernie is doing a good job on cross and Serino said in so many words that Singleton just LIED. Hahahahaha!

      • Ametia says:

        Yes; Bernie is doing a great job illustrating how distraught Tracy was at listening to the 911 call of Trayvon screaming.

    • Ametia says:

      @Xena. O’Mara’s recalling Doris Singleton. LOL

  50. Xena says:

    I’m calling on the Lord to give the jury righteous discernment and judgment. O’Mara, West and GZ have reaping to do.

    • Ametia says:

      And have MERCY on the Martin family.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        I stand in agreement with your prayer Xena.

      • Ametia says:

        Granny; Doris Singleton is a phucking LIAR. She knows damn well what Tracy Martin was saying about Trayvon’s screams.

      • @Granny:

        I stand with you Granny and to all of you who believe in the strength and the hope of the ressurection. Father God, please have give this family the strength on this family. Take them in your arms and comfort them. They must be enduring hell, and I know you will comfort them.

        Any parent, would be in a state of disbelief if they heard their child screaming on a tape after being murdered! O’Moron is on my last nerves!! The jury must be sick of him already! Brandy Green was with Tracy and she comforted him because she knew it was Trayvon. At least Doris Singleton testified to the fact that she empathized with Mr. Martin since hs eis a parent herself and she didn’t want to intrude on him or Ms. Green as she was comforting him. She kind of redeemed hereslf and O’Moron got her off the stand qucikly. Who is this man on the stand now?

  51. Xena says:

    Chris Serino just called to the stand. O’Mara wants testimony regarding Tracy when he heard the 911 call, but Judge Nelson will not allow him to ask what anyone heard Tracy say. The defense could have called Tracy as their own witness if they wanted that.

    • Ametia says:

      Makes sense. Tracy Martin can speak for himself. GZ didn’t put a bullet in his heart and murder Tracy. The defense don’t WANT NONE OF TRACY MARTIN. NADA! They’d rather bring on the sleazy witnesses to LIE and DISTORT the fact.

    • Ametia says:

      A@ Xena. Finally they’re ready to question that snake Serino. Oh I wish they would try to bring Tracy Martin to testify.

  52. Xena says:

    Doris Singleton has been called to the stand. O’Mara wants to question her about Tracy hearing the 911 call. The State asked to approached the bench. They are now in side-bar.

    • Ametia says:

      What is MOM hoping to accomplish from this line of questioning about Tracy hearing the 911 call?

      • Ametia says:

        Officer Chris Serino be recalled to the stand. I guess he’s going to tell the jury what Tracy Martin said about the 911 call.

      • Xena says:

        GZ supporters have continuously misrepresented how Tracy answered Serino’s question of whether the screams were Trayvon. If O’Mara does that at trial, then the State will have to bring in Tracy during rebuttal, and as we know, Vanilla Ice Cream West gets a hard-on trying to humiliate Black men.

  53. Xena says:

    12:30 CST. Court is back in session.

  54. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    God up above knows that these people are lying to save a child murderer. It is hard for me to fathom adults lying to save a child murderer, but then, that is the south. The south has a history of lying to save their own when they kill black people. They probably joked about it. The south has not changed and this trial is showing you how much racism and hatred still exist in the south. Smh!

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      It’s strange that the defense wanted to discredit the audio and medical professionals with amateurs and gz’s friends(notice that I did not capitalize gz name because I see him as a small liar). The army medic can’t even look people in the eye when he lies. He looks down. These people are something else. Lord help them.

      • roderick2012 says:

        Granny sez: Xena, they’re full of dung and blinded by racism. Racism is a disease of the mind.

        If I followed this trial live instead of on blogs I wouldn’t have any furniture left.

        If America wants to see racism in the flesh all they need to do is tune into this trial.

      • Xena says:

        @roderick2012.

        If America wants to see racism in the flesh all they need to do is tune into this trial.

        It’s obvious at times. O’Mara is subtle with it. But, there is judicial procedure. Good lawyers know how NOT to overwhelm a jury and they hit the home run during closing argument. What we heard from Mantei on Friday was an example.

        Sorry if you can’t agree, Roderick. I’m a butterfly — “a dream conceived in truth never dies.” A person of faith doesn’t depend on the humans in the courtroom.

      • roderick2012 says:

        O’Mara is subtle with it.

        You’re shitting me right?

        O’Mara has blown ever racial dog whistle invented.

      • Xena says:

        @roderick2012. Dog whistles are subtle. IMO, Mrs. Donnelly not only blew dog whistles, but did a “flash” when defending that GZ was “just reporting what he saw,” when what he saw was one person who he described in the plural as “assholes” and “f’ing punks.”

    • Xena says:

      Granny, I was very surprised that GZ’s friend would first testify how much she adores him, and then say because of her jury experience, she tried not hearing about the case just in case she was called for jury duty. Yet, in her testimony, she already decided that everything GZ said about being attacked was true. Would she really think that she could have been chosen for the jury by saying she hadn’t heard about the case, although thinking of GZ as her son? That’s an insult to intelligence. Yep — they want the judicial system stacked with partial jurors to guarantee the result they want.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Xena, they’re full of dung and blinded by racism. Racism is a disease of the mind.

    • Ametia says:

      Hi Granny. It’s been a busy morning for me, and I didn’t get to hear some of the so-called witness for GZ. What I did hear was beyond DIGUSTING. The sleazy folks who associated with Zimmerman, his friends, and his family, give creedance to his SOCIOPATHIC behaviors.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Hi Ametia and everyone else. I didn’t get to see and hear some of the so-witnesses either. Granny has been trying to get some rest. My body is tired.

        As for gz’s friends, birds of a feather flock together. John Donnelly is one of those grinning racist. SG2, I know you know what I’m talking about because you live in TX.

  55. Xena says:

    11:14 CST. Court is in recess.

  56. Why has no one stated Zimmerman LIED that Treyvon spoke after the heart shot? The Medical Examiner said it would be IMPOSSIBLE for anyone o speak.

    And, Treyvon had every right to use Stand Your Ground law against his killer, he was FULLY legal even if he assaulted Mr. Zimmerman.

    • Liza says:

      The prosecution will connect all the dots in their closing argument. They have already, for the record, called Zimmerman a liar and I expect that will be well substantiated when they finish with this. God knows they have plenty to work with.

      • Ametia says:

        Hi Liza. Good to see you. Indeed the state has established that GZ is a blatant LIAR. See Hannnity video. the biggest LIAR for the witness is Gladys Zimmerman. A mother who LIED about her own sons screams and stole the last dying breaths of Trayvon to defend his murderer.

      • Liza says:

        Good morning, Ametia. Yeah, Zimmerman’s mother is trying to save his a$$, hoping she can gen up some of that reasonable doubt so that her baby doesn’t have to go to prison. I wonder if she’s concerned about the likelihood he would kill again.

    • What is moderation and why is my comment awaiting it? No offense.

  57. Xena says:

    Bernie should ask Donnelly if he slept with GZ, because Donnelly said he could distinguish voices in the army because they were guys he ate and slept with.

    • @Xena:
      Donnelly should STFU! You cannot differentiate voices in the Army. Everyone shouting and yelling commands at once!The only voice you know without even blinking is your drill Sargeant and even then! He did mention that he heard other dialogue on the tape. REALLY? What does it state since the rest of us can hear it as well, and we can make out exactly what is being screamed?? I notice he avoided saying further. I am beyond disgusted by these people! I remember Ted Bundy’s college professors testifying to his character too. They couldn’t fathom that Ted was a murderer. He was so soft spoken, articulate and so intelligent. These people only saw one side of Fogen. None of them are the least bit believable!

      • Xena says:

        A nail in GZ’s coffin is when Donnelly testified that he heard screams for help AND other screams. Not once has GZ said that he yelled anything other than “help” and “help me.”

      • Ametia says:

        And who can forget Jeffrey Dahmer. Who roamed disadvantaged neighborhoods preying on young POC, even cahsing after them in broad daylight. That sick mofo was killing and dismembering bodies left and right. But folks didn’t give it a second thought, when one of the boys tried to escape. the cops took Dahmer’s word over a naked, disheveled, frightend teenaged boy

        http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/serial_killers/notorious/dahmer/index.html

  58. Xena says:

    Witness for the defense says that when GZ said “f’ing punks” that he was speaking matter of factly. There’s more evidence for the prosecution of profiling.

    • Ametia says:

      If you lay down with dogs, you get fleas. And Zimmerman, his family, and friends are infested with them.

      • Xena says:

        @Ametia. LOL!! My mom used to tell me that if I laid down with dogs, I’d get up with puppies. You can get rid of fleas, but puppies are forever. :-)

  59. Xena says:

    George called everyone and said “Send money.”

  60. Xena says:

    Oh,oh. GZ’s business was never registered with the State of Florida. I’m not even sure if GZ passed the class for his insurance license.

  61. Xena says:

    The best the defense can do is call GZ’s co-workers as witnesses????? None of them can testify if GZ killed Trayvon in self-defense. O’Mara has to present an affirmative defense and thus far, he has only brought circumstantial evidence before the court regarding the screams.

  62. Ametia says:

    Geri Russo is on the stand now. Works for Digital Risk. Does default mortgages.

  63. Xena says:

    Mark Osterman uses the words “threat” and “neutralize” as if he doesn’t recognize human life. That doesn’t help Zimmerman either because a nature of 2nd degree murder is disregard for human life.

    • Ametia says:

      Exactly, Xena. Trayvon, as with all the black males that GZ identified on those non-emergency calls was a threat that needed to be neutralized.(SHOT DOWN)

      • Xena says:

        @Ametia. You hit the proverbial nail on the head and I suspect that is exactly how prosecutors are going to present it at closing.

  64. Ametia says:

    Mark Osterman: “You aim for the largest area to stop the threat.”

  65. racerrodig says:

    Osterman just stated the safest way to carry a gun is in the kill mode. By sheer act of God I had a customer in the shop, unbeknownst to me is a cop just down the road. It is against all police policy to carry with one in the chamber and just about all issued firearms have an external safety.
    Keep lying dude….

    • Ametia says:

      GZ was armed to blast that 9mm, and he did. He murdered Trayvon Martin. He was not going to let Trayvon GET AWAY on the night of February 26, 2012.

    • Xena says:

      Hey Racerrodig! Good to see you. Cops have to account for bullets. Having an extra bullet means they can shoot someone and not have to account for the extra bullet.

  66. Ametia says:

    Bernie is questioning Mark Osterman. He asked him at what point do you pull a trigger on someone when they are no longer a threat?

  67. Ametia says:

    Mark O’Mara: “Who’s voice is that screaming on the 911 tape do you have an opinion?

    Mark Osterman: “I thougjt it was Geroge. Just the volume, the tone.”

  68. Ametia says:

    Mark Osterman told GZ to “do what is natural,” when it comes to handling his firearm.

  69. Xena says:

    Asking Mark Osterman about how law enforcement carry is not beneficial to “wannabee cop” Zimmerman. It just verifies the State’s claim that Zimmerman’s actions the evening of 2/26/12 was because he imagined himself as deputized law enforcement.

    • Ametia says:

      Mark O’Mara is going to play that 911 tape again to get Osterman to once again STEAL Trayvon’s dying screams for his life. How much does Sybrina and Tracy have to listen to Trayvon’s screams over and over, while these fuckers steal his last breaths.

      • @Ametia:

        I cannot imagine sitting there as a parent of a murdered child, knowing my child is screaming for his life. calling me, saying, “I’m begging you! Help! Help! I don’t know! Help!” Then bang! Having to listen to these MFers lie up there is more than I can bear! They are all lying and they know it! If we an hear all of that dialogue and hear that young AA voice yelling, I am sure the jury can!!

        When are they going to call the co-worker that Fogen mocked and made his life miserable? I am sure he has a lot to say about Fogen!

  70. Ametia says:

    For what reason would George Zimmerman need a loaded 9mm gun roaming the neighborhood to protect himself from whom or what?

  71. Ametia says:

    Mark Osterman helped Gz get that gun to hunt down and stalk black males in that neighborhood.

  72. Ametia says:

    Mark Osterman is up. Can’t wait for Bernie D. to get his ass.

  73. Xena says:

    Mark Osterman is called. I think I saw Bernie licking his chops. :-)

    • Ametia says:

      Mark Osterman speaking about Zimmerman and firearm safety. Yep, you did a fine job teaching Geroge Z about that, M.O. There was NO safety on that 9mm gun that GZ used to slaughter Travon Martin in cold blood, 2-26-12.

  74. Xena says:

    That biased, lying woman, just said that she didn’t hear “f’ing punks” on the recording.

    • Ametia says:

      Bernie asking Sondra “Those assholes always get away” Is that a way of asking someone out to dinner?

      • Ametia says:

        The ASSHOLES ALWAYS GET AWAY” Are you deaf Sondra O.? Trayvon certainly didn’t GET AWAY February 26, 2012, did he?

    • @Xena:

      Good morning to you and all of my fellow TM supporters!
      Osterman, and his wife are both liars. I could see Sondra Osterman getting flustered with Bernie’s questions, and appeared unsure of herself. Who are these people? They are all liars, and they know that, that is not GZ!! Lord, have mercy, these folks will burn in hell for this!

      • Xena says:

        The friend/witness now on the stand is saying that when GZ said “these assholes …” that he was simply reporting. Meanwhile, GZ sits like a potted palm.

    • @Xena:
      Moron O’Mara continues to call these witnesses/co-workers/friends, and he is asking them to identify Fgoen on the tape. He is trying to hard and I know the jury is saying to themselvesm” How do they know if it is G or not? They have never heard him scraming or yelling!!” He askss people who have no knowledge of what he sounds like in a stressed filled terror situation! They are all liars as we know, and Bernie has a way of asking them questions where they become flustered and unsure because they are unsure, and when you are lying, you have to continue to lie and cover up.

      • Xena says:

        Good morning Deborah! Thus far, O’Mara has called a witness who wrote a book and is setting aside the money for GZ, and a witness who has donated over $3,000 to GZ and took him clothes shopping.

  75. Xena says:

    Bernie is now playing Zimmerman’s NEN call where he uses profanity and asking Sondra if she recognizes that voice.

    • Ametia says:

      Sondra says that using profanity is generally Georgie’s way. She claims not to have heard the” fucking punk.” heard no ill-will. Has never heard him scream before.

      • Xena says:

        I wish that the Dr. Phil program had been entered into evidence because in that interview, Sondra said she had never heard Zimmerman use profanity. Now, she’s saying that she’s heard him call people “assholes.”

      • Ametia says:

        all these grifting white trash folks are in it for the $$. LIARS, the lot of them.

    • @Xena:
      Setting aside money for Fogen, and a witness who donated over 3 grand?? WTH? NO wonder Fogen and Shellie feel entitled not to have to work and do what we do every single day! I pray nightly that Fogen is CONVICTED! Let his flunkie racist friends, suppor this ass while he is in the State Pen! Let them take in Shellie and support her since she is so help-less! These people are crazy! They know this man is guilty, and yet, they still support him with money. This man has never had to take responsibility for anything in his life! That is why is such a first class jerk!

      • Xena says:

        @Deborah Moore. As the saying goes, sho you know you’re right!! I wanted to spit when hearing his friends say in so many words that it was okay for him to call Trayvon azzholes and f’ing punks. But, the State can use that for its benefit — just relate to his previous NEN calls and connect the dots that even his friends are of the impression that it was usual for GZ to profile young men of color — because they thought his derogatory language was common, everyday language that he used.

  76. Xena says:

    Bernie is now cross-examining, beginning with asking Sondra about the book written with Mark. O’Mara objected and Judge Nelson overruled.

    • Ametia says:

      LOL as if JN would sustain that objection. They’re BOTTOM FEEDERS, the lot of them.

      Yes; listen to the 911 call again Sondra! Bernie is playing the call again

  77. Ametia says:

    Sondra O. is another lying piece of shit on the witness stand STEALING the screams of an unarmed teenaged boy, begging for his life

  78. Xena says:

    Looks like Sondra is going to testify about the voice on the 911 tape. Also looks like the defense might not have witnesses for much of anything other than that.

    • Ametia says:

      Sondra: “That’s Georgie.” George Zimmerman; use his full name, Sondra. Is that Georgie’s voice calling Trayvon “a fucking punk?”

  79. Xena says:

    Sondra Osterman is called as a witness for the defense.

    • Ametia says:

      Hi Xena. Anyone in their right mind would know that this is Trayvon Martin SCREAMING for his life.

      • Xena says:

        The defense is trying too hard to have folks say it was George screaming, but Bernie was on the case. He asked Sondra about hearing any pauses in the screams. He’s getting to that “smothering” claim for closing.

  80. Xena says:

    The jury is coming in and Zimmerman looks like he wants to cry.

  81. Xena says:

    Looks like things are starting off with a side bar.

  82. WITNESS SELMA MORA – ZIMMERMAN KILLING CONTINUED AFTER SHOOTING

    http://www.nowpublic.com/world/witness-selma-mora-zimmerman-killing-continued-after-shooting

    Today, Selma Mora testified, with the help of an interpreter, that she looked out of her porch and observed a man in a red and black jacket, straddled atop another person, who was face down and motionless, and George had his hands on the incapacitated person’s head. She called out to Zimmerman, who eventually told her to call the police. At that time, he got off the person and began walking to and fro. She said that a man with a flash light arrived later.

    Nevertheless, when the man with the flashlight arrived, George Zimmerman was once again on top of Trayvon Martin, with his hands pressing Trayvon’s body. In fact, Zimmerman explained his aggression with a dead, or near-dead person, by inviting the man with the flashlight to help him subdue the motionless Trayvon.

    Clearly, George Zimmerman knew that Trayvon Martin was no threat by the time the man with the flashlight arrived, because he left Trayvon motionless and unattended after the woman called out to him. If her recounting of the facts is correct, he remounted, what he knew to be a dead or dying person, and applied force to the body, The only way to make sense of it is to conclude that George Zimmerman remounted Trayvon, after he sent the woman to call the police, to kill him.

    • @SouthernGirl2:
      I remember Selma from her interview a long time ago. She and Mary Cutcher were standing with Sybrina at the complex, and she told the exact same story in beautiful English. She was so upset that day. Bless her and Mary for telling the truth.I They have never wavered in what they saw and heard thtat evening. I have long suspected that Fogen was trying to suffocate TM further and to think that he was still alive to a point, and needed assistance and Fogen did nothing………

      Asphyxia – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Fogen was further trying to suffocate (Compression Aphysiation) this boy by stating he was attempting to “RESTRAIN” him? Sitting on him? His fat ugly body sitting on this kid? Why would he, Fogen, a civilian be resraining a minor and teenage boy? IS he a police-man? The man is a lunatic! He was making sure that, that boy was dead or on his way to dying.

  83. Mantei: Two people were involved in this case. “One of them is dead and one of them is a liar”.

  84. John Guy: Good morning.FUCKING PUNKS. THESE ASSHOLES!

    They always get away. *points at GZ*.Those were the words in that grown. man’s. mouth.

  85. Sufficient evidence has been introduced to support a guilty verdict in Zimmerman case

    http://frederickleatherman.com/2013/07/07/sufficient-evidence-has-been-introduced-to-support-a-guilty-verdict-in-zimmerman-case/

    NBC’s Dan Abrams, whom I generally respect, has announced that he believes the jury will find the the defendant not guilty of both murder 2 and manslaughter. Given the State’s difficult burden to disprove self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt, which he believes to be impossible since the defendant has a coherent theory of the case supported by many witnesses as well as the photographs showing the injuries to his head, he said that he does not see any way that the jury can convict him.

    In reaching that opinion, I believe Abrams commits the same mistake that so many of his colleagues commit on a daily basis regarding all of the important stories and issues of the day. They assume that there are two sides to every story and each side has both strengths and weaknesses. In other words, they assume the opposing sides are roughly equally legitimate. This assumption is not based on a thorough evidence based review of the respective sides or an objective evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the opposing arguments.

    In fact, the assumption of equivalency is a false assumption and an extremely poor substitute for investigative journalism and critical thinking.

    Abrams also commits another mistake by failing to acknowledge that the jury will decide how much weight to assign to the evidence. For example, the jury could decide that the defendant is a liar and disregard everything he said that is not independently supported by other credible evidence.

    For a long time I have been describing this case a simple case. The jury can reasonably infer based on the evidence introduced at trial that the defendant attempted to locate and physically prevent Trayvon Martin from being yet another fucking punk and asshole who always escapes out the rear entrance of the neighborhood before the police arrive. They could also reasonably conclude that Trayvon uttered the terrified death shriek since he was unarmed and the shriek ended with the gunshot. Finally, they also could conclude that the absence of any of the defendant’s blood or DNA on Trayvon Martin’s hoodie means Trayvon did not attack the defendant.

    Anyone who has taken the time to study this case should realize that there is sufficient evidence in the record to support a verdict of guilty to murder 2.

    Indeed, Judge Nelson so ruled on Friday.

    Therefore, Abrams opinion that there is not sufficient evidence to support a guilty verdict is flat out wrong.

  86. Good morning, everyone! We’re almost there. One day closer to Justice4Trayvon!

    Hoodies up!
