State of Florida vs George Zimmerman Trial (day 11 )

Judge Debra Nelson 17(ABC News)Trayvon Martin’s father took the stand today and challenged the testimony of two police officers who had testified that he said it was not his son screaming for help on 911 tapes.

The identity of the voice howling for help moments before George Zimmerman, shot and killed Martin was the focus of the defense’s first full day of testimony.

While the prosecution insists that the voice pleading for help is Trayvon Martin, the defense has produced witnesses identifying the voice as Zimmerman’s.

Zimmerman, 29, is charged with second degree murder for shooting Martin, 17, on Feb. 26, 2013. Prosecutors say the former neighborhood watch captain was profiling and following Martin. Zimmerman maintains that he shot the teenager in self-defense.

Two police officers described today how Tracy Martin, the slain teenager’s father, listened to the tapes of the 911 calls two days after his son was killed. The screams for help could be heard in the background.

      Yes; this shit is does NOT make any sense, and yet these fools want to run animation on GZ’s account of his murder of Trayvon. Sick shit.

  1. Hey 3CP!

    Judge Nelson dropped the mic on Don West!

    Crying with Laughter

  2. CarolMaeWY says:

    I’m furious, I can only imagine what others here are feeling. I’ve never seen a lawyer act with so much disrespect to a judge. I haven’t been able to watch much of the trial live. This was unbelievable if I hadn’t heard it myself. Blessings, prayers, thoughts to the Martin family. Do you know if they were there at the hearing. Is GZ able to go home and be with his family during trial? TY so much for this sight. All I have left to say is a string of obscenities directed at GZ.

  3. Judge Nelson totally ignored West and kept walking out of the courtroom. **applause**

  4. Court is in recess until 8 a.m. tomorrow.

  5. The defense is in panic mode.

  6. CarolMaeWY says:

    Hi, I’ve been gone almost 3 hours. Is the hearing still going on? I’m getting a feed from the Orlando station and I’m confused. I had drops in my eyes so I’m having trouble reading. Can you please tell me if the judge has ruled on anything. Thanks.

  7. rikyrah says:

    is this true?

    Keith Boykin ‏@keithboykin
    Defense now arguing that Trayvon Martin was trying to purchase or sell a handgun.

    • Ametia says:

      Who is DEAD? Who was UNARMED? Trayvon THIS SHOULD BE THE END OF THIS WHOLE MURDER CASE, But NOPE; white folks in court playing animation videos and further trying to defame Trayvon Martin against a LYING, FAT, SOCIOPATHIC RACIST, WANNA BE COP MURDERER, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.

  8. OMG! I cannot believe this nonsense. None of this ish on Trayvon’s phone have anything to do with what happened on the night of Feb 26 2012.

  9. Next witness up

    Richard Conner. computer forensics expert.

    • Richard Connor is going to testify about the technicalities of examining Trayvon Martin’s cell phone.

      • Xena says:

        Vanilla Ice Cream West has a bigotvoyant argument, like Trayvon deleted photos and texts on his cell phone in the weeks before he went to Sanford, because he knew that on 2/26/12, he would be followed by a “creepy ass cracker.”

  10. Tony Pipitone : Judge wants to know what computer forensic expert Richard Connor found on Trayvon Martin’s phone

  11. Lights went out in courtroom.

  12. Richard Mantei: “The problem is that their arguments is masquerading as evidence”.

  13. Natalie Jackson ‏@NatJackEsq

    Animation is GZ’s lawyer-assisted FINAL iteration of his 5 pervious conflicting stories & a way 2 back door testimony w/o him on the stand.

  14. Judge Nelson points out Trayvon was right handed and Schumaker animation has him throwing a left handed punch. O’Mara trying to lie his way out of it.

  15. OMG! I’m reading on Twitter the violation of sequestration rules could end in a mistrial. Say it ain’t so, y’all?

  16. Courtroom manual on sequestration violations

  17. Defense witness Daniel Schumaker said he consulted with witness John Good, who is a witness under sequestration.



  18. O’Mara on re-direct of Schumaker

  19. Judge Nelson says she wants to put up animation so she can see exactly which positions Schumaker is testifying about.

  20. Daniel Schumaker wants to make money off of Trayvon Martin’s death but in Trayvon’s life he wouldn’t give him the time of day. GTFOOH!

  21. Let me get this straight. Defense attorneys told Schumaker TM was left handed? They didn’t even bother to find out. What? Just any ole thing will do?

    • roderick2012 says:

      ” Defense attorneys told Schumaker TM was left handed?”

      But, but that was the only way to match the marks on the right side of George’s face. LOL

      Of course the fawning media won’t mention anything about the defense attempting to ‘mislead’ the court with an animation not based on facts and of course no one will mention that Donnelly is in big doo doo.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Why would media mention that the defense is misleading the court and Donnelly is in big doo doo? That would be exposing the defense and their witnesses as liars and we all know that the media is cheer-leading for a child murderer, so that murder of black males can be legalized again.

      • Ametia says:

        #Granny. The media is trotting out all those tv judges,like Judge Alex, and that Lisa Bloom; I can’t stand that bleach blond BITCH.These fools are out there to make $$$ and a name for themselves. It’s a three ring circus, and the cable networks are the ring masters. Shameful, but GOD.DON’T.LIKE.UGLY.

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      I swear this is about the most sleaziest defense team since Al Capone days.

  22. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    Look at the child murderer wiping the sweat from his face. I hear it’s not even hot in the courtroom.

  23. Yamiche Alcindor: Schumaker says he incorporated Jennifer Lauer’s testimony to the jury. Says she “pin pointed” where fight starts. Mantei says she didn’t.

    • Yamiche Alcindor: Schumaker wasn’t allowed to watch trial but says his animation reflects what the jury has heard & seen & is based on infor from GZ’s lawyers

  24. CarolMaeWY says:

    Was Donnellys testimony stricken from the record this morning? Now may I SCREAM.

    • Not yet. Judge will hear it in the morning at 8:00am

      • Xena says:

        Yep. The State is crossing their T’s and dotting their I’s. They might have obtained the videos for those days that Donnelley was there in court along with who testified and what he heard. Since John Donnelley said that he’s testified in court previously, then he knows the rule for witness sequestration. More so, GZ, O’Mara and vanilla ice cream West know the rule.

  25. rikyrah says:

    Jeff Weiner ‏@JeffWeinerOS11m
    According to reports, Donnelly was in court at times before his testimony, a violation of witness sequestration. #ZimmermanTrial

  26. rikyrah says:

    erified Packer Fan ‏@iminshock5h
    @MichaelSkolnik is the State aware that Donnelly, witness for GZ, was in courtroom prior to testimony yesterday?

  27. Xena says:

    HLN is reporting that the defense has presented its last witness. That means no Benjamin Crump, and no recall of John, Jenna, or Jeantel by the defense. Two days of nothing more than “That’s George screaming for help.” (SMH)

  28. Local 10 Zimmerman ‏@WPLGZimmerman

    Special prosecutor Angela Corey is in the courtroom taking notes

  29. The jury is not present for this hearing on the computer animation.

  30. Court is back in session….

  31. Hearing concerning John Donnelly at 8am tomorrow.

  32. Xena says:

    Am I understanding correctly that the defense is ready to rest? What did they present to support that GZ killed Trayvon in self-defense? Nothing. The jury cannot judge a “reasonable person” requirement without the defendant’s testimony.

  33. Court is in recess for 10 minutes.

  34. I won’t say on this board what I REALLY think of that lying trifling no mother wit negro!

  35. roderick2012 says:

    After the jury convicts Fatback of Murder 2 they should tack on another five for insulting the jurors’ intellegence.

    Common sense tells me that it’s Trayvon screaming given that the defense is trying way too hard to convince the jury that it’s George.

    Eloise’s lying ass needs to have several seats.

    God bless Sybrina. Her lone still voice claiming the screams were Trayvon’s is louder than the combined lies from all of the defense witnesses.

  36. De la Rionda is on cross.

  37. Xena says:

    Okay — what the heck is this witness suppose to prove? That GZ had a black neighbor? That doesn’t prove GZ killed Trayvon in self-defense.

  38. Xena says:

    O’Mara is trying to get the witness to say Twin Trees Lane rather than Retreat View Circle.

  39. Bish, please! GTFFOOH!

  40. Next witness up

    Eloise Dillogard.

    • Eloise Dillogard is a former resident at The Retreat at Twin Lakes and remembers Zimmerman as a “friendly neighbor.”

    • Ametia says:

      How the HELL Eloise gonna persume townhouses and such? I can’t stand this foolishness. These CaCs are going down in history as the most incompetent, amatuer, racist defense attorneys.

    • Mike DeForest ‏@MikeDeForest6: Right after shooting, Dilligard recognized #TrayvonMartin photo from seeing him around but didn’t know his name.


      Did this negro alert Zimmerman about Trayvon? Say it ain’t so?

  41. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    Hey wasn’t that animated man sitting in the court for a few days too in the back row?

  42. Xena says:

    Bernie acts like he has a kick-ass attitude today.

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      Bernie did kick ass, but the pundits and TV lawyers are not giving him credit and are discrediting him. They’re praising Maio and why I don’t know because I can see through his lies and I am not a medical professional. There is no way that a person can take out someone hearts and that person will be able to talk. You could ask someone who lives in the hood if that’s possible and they would laugh that man outta court.

      • Xena says:

        In the Trevor Dooley case, victim David James was shot in the heart. It wasn’t a hollow point bullet. He said “He shot me” and then collapsed and died. At his sentencing hearing, Dooley said he is unable to use the shower because the drain sounds remind him of James’ death gurgle, and he’s haunted by that.

        GZ got on Trayvon’s back after shooting Trayvon in the heart. For sure, he heard sounds of Trayvon’s body organs shutting down and the death gurgle. I hope he’s haunted by that day and night and will be for the rest of his life.

      • roderick2012 says:

        “At his sentencing hearing, Dooley said he is unable to use the shower because the drain sounds remind him of James’ death gurgle, and he’s haunted by that.”

        I hope Jenna, Jeremy and John are haunted everyday by Trayvon’s pleas for them to help him, but they decided he was just another thug and allowed George to take his life instead.

        I guess they all have to convince themselves everyday that Trayvon was a ‘thug’ so they can function.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        @roderick, racism and especially racism that involves murder has always throughout history been reinforced with justifications, flimsy excuses, people willing to lie to maintain it, and stereotypes of dangerous black males. Nothing new! All people of color know that without a doubt, so it’s no surprise that these people are willing to fabricate the thug excuse to soothe their conscience. After all, he’s a black male and all black males according to them are thugs and black women are hoes. granny<—giving major eye rollage.

  43. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    I can’t believe that people believe actually believe that lying ass Maio. These people have blood on their hands and conscience. Lisa Bloom seems elated by that lying ass testimony of Maio. He is incompetent and advocating for his wife’s profession to be picked over Dr. and Nurses to dothe documenation. I swear, people should not be so dang dumb. Lord help us all today. Well, Lord let them show their true colors.

  44. roderick2012 says:

    I knew evil existed before this case but never on this level.

    BTW I never realized that evil was contagious or were West and O’Mara this evil before they came into contact with George and the rest of the Zimmermans.

    • I believe it’s already there. This case just brought it out in the open.

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      Now, you know without a doubt that it exist. We’re living in the last days. The bible said that the day was coming when people would rather believe a lie than the truth. God is not a man that he would lie. God don’t lie!

  45. Court’s back in session

  46. So O’Mara has a witness who is gonna testify in a “unique” way?

  47. Court is in recess for 15 minutes

  48. Next witness up

    Norton N. Bonaparte!

  49. Ametia says:

    How long is this going to go on with this lying idiot?

  50. Ametia says:

    West is trying to introduce more hocus pocus evidence.

  51. Ametia says:

    Has JN ruled on the animation yet?

  52. Xena says:

    Good afternoon everyone! Just getting here and brought-up the live stream.

  53. AdamSerwer ‏@AdamSerwer : Per NBC News, Zimmerman’s defense team won’t introduce fact that Martin had marijuana in his system on the night of the confrontation.

    • rachel says:

      You mean they’re not going to tell all and sundry that the victim had been exposed to a substance known for making people mellow and thereby open up an inquiry into what their client had been on that night?

    • Ametia says:

      So the defense waited until after their theatrics in court yesterday to hear what the media low level tv lawyers said about introducing TM’s pot usage and how pot makes you as mellow as yellow?

      • Yes ma’am!

      • Liza says:

        Yeah, marijuana (which is on it’s way to legalization) does not fit into the street-fighter-thug profile that the Liars from Hell are trying to create for a child who was murdered while walking home from the store with candy and tea.

      • Ametia says:

        @Liza. Now crack cocaine; that’s another matter. Straight pure coke and meth naw. Colt 45, Mad Dog, substances like that, yep; they’d introduce that. You know there are different beverages, drugs and foods black folks just adore.

        Please pass me a slice of Water melon. Thanks!

  54. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    Ut oh, his body, eyes, and facial movements tells me the liar is mighty uncomfortable now. He scared he going to get caught in his lies.
    Expose him Bernie and let the world see how big a liar he is.

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      Di Maio is getting caught up in his lies and is nervous now. He is stumbling all over his lies. Thank you Jesus!

      • See, what had happened…

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Di Maio is reaching in his behind to pull out those lies he is telling. Dr and Nurses don’t take notes, he is habitual liar. Anyone who goes to a Dr. know that they make notations of everything you tell them and they observe. He is so full of it.

      • Ametia says:

        @Granny. I’m a retired RN, and it’s all about DOCUMENTATION.

      • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

        Amen, Ametia! They document just in case of a law suit, to keep a record of symptoms, treatment, to keep track of medication and if it is working or not working or causing reaction,and the list goes on and on.

  55. Court is back in session..

  56. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    I wonder how these people sleep at night knowing that they are lying to cover for a child murderer. God knows that man is lying his ass off without conscience. If Zimmerman goes free, it is not going to be pretty or controllable the hell that will be released because people are not stupid.

  57. Court is in recess until 1:30pm

  58. CarolMaeWY says:

    Thank you 3chics for this outlet.

  59. GrannyStandingforTruth says:

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen, I just made it here. Still waking up. Another day of sitting through the defense lying azz witnesses, sneaky, underhanded tricks. God give me the strength to sit through this web of deception.

  60. rikyrah says:

    TJ Holmes ‏@tjholmes1m
    Witness: “if I pulled your heart out right now, you might be able to talk another 15 seconds.” #Zimmermantrial

    • GrannyStandingforTruth says:

      Is that so? That is some BS! The defense witnesses are disgusting evil people.

    • roderick2012 says:

      Rikyrah, the defense has been appealing to the angry white male so long that they have forgotten that the is composed of six women five of whom are mothers.

      I doubt that talk about someone being able to live after having his heart yanked out of his chest or Trayvon lying in pain between one and ten minutes after having his heart destroyed by a hollow point bullet is going to help George in the slightest.

  61. Help me make it through this trial, Lord!

  62. Jurors in 2012 Drew Peterson trial and 2009 Phil Spector trial disagreed with Di Maio and found defendants guilty.

  63. Next witness up

    Dr. Vincent J. M. Di Maio

  64. Jury is being brought in.

  65. Court is back in session.

  66. Court is in recess for 5 minutes

  67. Judge Debra Nelson to Mark O’Mara: I have the jury now seating out there for an hour.

    • Animation being played for Judge Nelson. The animation begins with the screams from 911 call and the shot.

      • Sybrina Fulton left courtroom.

      • Liza says:

        So how many times now has the 911 call with the death scream been played in front of the jury? Wasn’t the defense playing it yesterday while all of Zimmerman’s friends said it was Zimmerman screaming?

        Does anyone besides me think that the defense is playing it repetitively to de-sensitize the jury? A reasonably intelligent person could deduce that Zimmerman’s neighbors and friends cannot identify who is screaming and their testimony on this matter is nonsense.

      • Ametia says:

        Sybrina should leave the courtroom and show every display of emotion she can muster when she hears the 911 call played repeatedly. I’m sure she’s not desensitized to hearing her son’s screaming and begging for his life.

      • Liza says:

        Sybrina is tormented every time they re-play the last 44 seconds of her child’s life up to the second he is murdered. But I’ll bet that if we were flies on the wall listening to O’Mara/West talking about their strategy with their consultants, they would be saying that even if the jury doesn’t believe any of the witnesses saying that it’s George screaming, we can at least de-sensitize them by repetition and reduce the emotional impact.

        They don’t care how much it torments Trayvon’s mother.

  68. Ametia says:

    SG2; I missed something, Am I to understand the jury is not in the courtroom yet, and JN is trying to decide if the animation video will be admissable for jury consideration?

  69. Ametia says:

    For the TROLLS who think they’re going to come to 3 Chics and defend GZ or support the defense of Zimmerman: THIS IS NOT THE PLACE. BYE NOW!

  70. Ametia says:

    I’m beyond the BOILING POINT here. GZ trial defense has some animation expert who reconstructs car accident. Lord help me through this day.

    • Put that child killer on the stand. He can explain better than anyone what happened the night he killed a kid.

    • Liza says:

      Yeah, this is in lieu of putting Fatso the Child Killer on the witness stand because O’Mara and West (or their consultants) are just smart enough to know that the lying sack of sh!t they represent cannot pull it off. He will become entangled within his own lies and contradictions and will fold under cross examination. Rather than give him the rope to hang himself, they want to use a video to animate the false narrative sparing Zimmerman having to face the prosecutors. Liars are usually cowards, Zimmerman is no exception.

  71. rikyrah says:



    A smartphone game called “Angry Trayvon” which sparked outrage online has apparently been removed from app stores, according to a Facebook post.

    The main character of the game, who sported a hooded sweatshirt, bore the same first name as Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot to death in Sanford, Florida last year and whose alleged assailant is currently being tried for his murder.

    A petition demanded the removal of the game from Google Play;complaint tweets were posted on Twitter, as well. About two hours ago, the following message was posted to the “Angry Trayvon” Facebook page:

    The people spoke out therefore this game was removed from the app stores. Sorry for the inconvenience as this was just an action game for entertainment. This was by no means a racist game. Nonetheless, it was removed as will this page and anything associated with the game will be removed.

    According to the Google Play website, the game had last been updated on June 1, 2013. According to TradeDigital, the game was made available to the public on Christmas Day last year.

  72. Next witness up

    Daniel Shoemaker. He’s an expert in crime scene reconstruction.

  73. Court is in session

    Hoodies up!

  74. rachel says:

    I can’t get over the defense calling the victim’s father to the stand. WTF did they think they were doing!

  75. Witness Donnelly was in court this week

    Witness Donnelly was in court this week.

  76. Why didn’t GZ tell the NEN dispatcher he was armed?

  77. Good morning, everyone!

    The fact that we’re discussing whether it was Trayvon screaming is mind numbing. Blood curdling screams. Gunshot. Screaming stops. Trayvon DEAD! It’s not rocket science!

    This bullshit discussion about whether it is GZ screaming is what sparks protests. My blood is at the boiling point! Stop putting the victim on trial.

    America has a serious race problem and a long way to go to clean it up!
