Could the childlike screaming be from the 13 year old witness whose dog ran off?

Who did Trayvon Martin's girlfriend call after she hears him get shoved by the scary man who was following him? It's not late at night, it's evening. Martin had spent five hours on the phone that day, he calls her to tell her he feels threatened, she hears angry voices, a shove and the call ends and that's it? What 16 year old girl does not immediately make another phone call? Martin's family is down the street, the cops, your buddies, your mom, Martin's coach, his buddies, somebody.

Instead the body lies there unidentified because nobody is looking for him. There was a phone call, the contents have been invented by a crooked lawyer.

With Obama scheduled to give an introduction to the 50th anniversary showing of “To Kill a Mockingbird” on Saturday, it would be a great opportunity for some enterprising conservative with video skills to poach the mob scene in front of the jail and superimpose left wing media figures on the mob’s faces.

Add a bit of dubbing having the mob calling for Zimmerman’s lynching, the video would be a natural to go viral.

Tom Owens is the Gloria Alred of voice recognition.

At this point, is there any publicly available evidence that disagrees with Zimmermans story?

I can only think of one thing... tm's gf's account of their cell phone conversation. But where are the cell phone records to back up the story?

Hey you libs... If the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit! The science of voice analysis is settled!

If could think of any more trite phrases, I'd include them too.

cboldt

Good question about who, if anybody DeeDee called after losing contact with Trayvon. I don't think she knows who to call, in Sanford. She's hours away in Miami.

DeeDee didn't go to Trayvon's funeral. Why not? Her excuse is that she was so distraught, she couldn't handle it.

But if Zimmerman's account is accurate, and the police don't have any evidence to cast doubt on it, then DeeDee (if she was on the phone when the fight started) knows what Trayvon said. She would have heard Trayvon say "You [have a problem] now."

If there is a grand jury, she'll get a subpoena.

Last night I met a client, who has been sending me quite a bit of business. I show up and she's a stunning beauty, taller than me, and well, I just couldn't believe it. Anyhoo, we got to talking, she was very smart, and independent and all that crap. Suddenly, there was a crawl on the TV about this case. I didn't care and ignored it, but then all of a sudden, she started asking me questions. I demured. Finally after prodding, I mentioned that nothing she had seen had any semblence of reality. After complimenting me on my vocabulary, she said I must not be keeping up.

Well, I don't keep up with the TV news anymore, but on certain issues (This one!) I'm completely up to speed. Suffice to say, that my first stirrings of attraction to someone else (And believe me I didn't go in there thinking anything like that, I had no idea what this person looked like, but super tall leggy blondes are, well super tall leggy blondes)went down in flames after I explained to her what was happening (Vicious campaign ploy by the Obama administration, better watch out in that nice little house in your gentrifying neighborhood). She then took the time to tell me (And really, I had zero interest) that she had voted for Barak Obama. I asked why, cause like a car crash I was watching this in slow motion in an out of body experience? She said because George Bush and John McCain were hell bent on making abortion illegal. I offered her my house if she could come up with one single instance of either of those guys mentioning that at any time. She said they didn't have to. Oh well.

Heartbreaking.

Claiming that GZ used a racial epithet against Trayvon was just part of the willful distortion of the facts in this case.

I listened to GZ's call the other night, and I was very sure that I heard the word "punks" where the race baiters claimed GZ said "coons". I even posted a comment on the tape to that effect here on the 4th.

LUN

I'm inclined to believe this was all part of a plan to blow this into a national cause celebre, possibly to stir up the black vote for Obama, and to gin-up support for a civil case by the grieving parents.

cboldt

The point of hearing "fscking coons" is to tag George as a racist. The evidence that George is not racially biased is overwhelming.

"Fscking coons" was a figment of the media imagination, ginned up to increase tension. See too the police video that "shows no wounds." Cherry pick the worst available evidence, and use it to assert a false conclusion.

cboldt

DeeDee's account of the call doesn't cut against Zimmerman. Her assumption that Zimmerman shoved Trayvon is just that - and she could well be lying about what she knows on that count, rather than just jumping to a conclusion about the physical action. But the words she recounts, Trayvon talking first, that cuts in Zimmerman's favor.

In all accounts, Trayvon is the one who chooses to initiate a more "intimate" encounter.

OT: The doctors who gave oput those medical excuses to the Wisconsin protesters have been disciplined.

" doctors for writing out sick notes for radical far left protesters.
Channel 3000 reported:

Newly released records show the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s medical school disciplined 20 doctors for writing sick notes for protesters during last years’ labor demonstrations at the state Capitol.

Records obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Wisconsin State Journal on Thursday show 11 doctors were docked pay between the amounts of $500 and $4,001 and had to attend ethics training.

Nine others were residents, or doctors-in-training. They were given written reprimands and also had to attend ethics training.

All the doctors were warned that further violations could result in termination."

An internal NBC News probe has determined a "seasoned" producer was to blame for a misleading clip of a 911 call that the network broadcast during its coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting, according to two sources at the network.

"Seasoned" meaning this person has experience with converting hard evidence into slanderous narrative.

Seems a little light for medical fraud, Clarice. How much do those doctors make, anyway? Less than $400K? Not even one day's pay.

Writing a false prescription is a felony. Why wouldn't a doctor's use of his signature to knowingly aid government employees in defrauding the government be at least a misdemeanor?

Prof Jacobson (at Legal Insurrection, HT:Insty) has the three audio "experts" side by side (by side) . . . CNN proves “beyond a reasonable doubt” why cases should not be tried in the media :

There is no better proof that cases should not be tried in the media than the accounts of whether Zimmerman said “f-ing coons” under his breath on the 911 tape. That alleged statement has been the key media and left-blogosphere piece of evidence of racial motivation.
I don't know how anyone ever heard "coon" in that word (or "cold") . . . unless they were trying reeeaally hard. "Punks" at least matches the start and end (though the "nk" part is faint at best).

MelR--@8:26 and DubDave-- show the sinister plan that's going on here. MelR explains how this pre-packaged Plouffe-Axelrod media scam works. DaveDub shows the point of their sinister plan. Plouffe-Axelrod want to stir up black-lib resentment and hate -- look at the polls only blacks and committed libs believe this media BS. But agitating the base has a purpose, it will increase black voter participation to as close to 2008 as possible, that turnout won't win the election, but it will 'explain' the late precinct reports in swing state urban areas. The sinister plan ends with 'Bam daring RACISTS to challenge a black POTUS close win. That's the plan.

Much has been made of Martin's football, but all the photos in jerseys are from youth leagues, and there are several reports (e.g., this one) saying he quit playing:

The boy was a swift athlete, according to a friend, and played a range of positions up to about age 14. After he stopped playing, he remained active in the organization, volunteering six days a week from June through November of last year to help run the team's concession stand.
AFAICT, the "varsity football player" meme is from Zimmerman's lawyer, and unsupported.

Ignatz

--(can you even believe there's a pro-child murderer section of society)--

I seldom disagree with Jane, but in this case I can really not see the downside to wee Dublin Dave being imprisoned on a bad rap precisely as he's drooling to lynch Mr. Zimmerman.
No doubt 10-15 with some of society's most ardent Obama supporters would put a serious dent in his infantile view of the world. His imbecility has already accumulated a pretty hefty debt to society whether he's plugged anybody or not.

bunkerbuster

It's telling that even Zimmerman's most zealous apologists have him being "acquitted" and presenting a defense of x, y and z.
They're not even bothering to argue that there was no probable cause, because they know that train has left the station. They're already speaking as if it comes down to what evidence the prosecution has versus what evidence the defense has.
Zimmerman was following Martin and we know from the 911 calls that he believed Martin may be involved in a crime AND that he was frustrated by the thought that Martin may succeed in the crime.
It is beyond dispute that Zimmerman had the means -- a loaded 9mm handgun AND the motive, stopping what he believed to be a potential crime, to shoot Martin dead.
Given that, we have to question the motives of the police in deciding not to investigate the case more fully.
And AGAIN, why aren't any Zimmerman devotees arguing that a fuller investigation would be certain to have produced more evidence, and the more evidence the more exoneration??
Instead, the argument is now that because Zimmerman didn't use a particular racial slur, he must have killed Martin in self-defense.
Somehow I don't think that'll go very far in an actual trial -- if Zimmerman even has to face one.
iqvoice asks: ``is there any publicly available evidence that disagrees with Zimmermans story?''
A short list:
1. the lack of serious injuries to Zimmerman. Remember, his claim has to be that he feared for his life. Without serious injuries, it is rather obvious that simply not be willing to get your ass kicked could just as easily have been the motive.
2. No blood on the sidewalk, no blood on Zimmerman's clothes.
3. Zimmerman had the motive (he's on tape saying "these assholes always get away''), the means --loaded gun--and the opportunity -- he knew he could claim self-defense to commit the crime.

-- the lack of serious injuries to Zimmerman. --


Neither legal standard not basic common sense requires serious injury be inflicted on a person, before they are justified in the use of self defense, yet that appears to be the standard that you advocate. So, If I threaten you with a firearm, you have no right to self defense, because you aren't seriously injured?

-- No blood on the sidewalk, no blood on Zimmerman's clothes. --

Not as far as we know, but the police know more, and they aren't talking.

-- Zimmerman had the motive --


Sure did. Fear of losing ones life has a profound effect on ones motivation.

The police lacked probable cause. That's been discussed, you just choose to overlook it. And, FWIW, when there is a discussion about probable cause, the discussion involves review of evidence.

There is NO evidence, NONE, that contradicts Zimmerman's account. Speculation is not evidence. If it was, we'd have you jailed for inciting riots.

cboldt@10:01 I disagree with one thing you say/imply. The fact that TMartin was unarmed and had reason to be on the property required the SFD and prosecutor to closely investigate GZ's self-defense claim. That required the SFD to check out GZ's background (he did have an arrest and lots of calls to the SFD) to properly scrutinize the SD claim. that said -- apparently -- the forensics corroborate GZ's story and no witness discredits the story he told. As you say-- where is the EVIDENCE of an unlawful killing? The hustlers can produce a witness who'll testify, then the case could change. Until then, they are an ugly mob.

I didn't mean to imply that an investigation was inappropriate, or that the police should assume Zimmerman was being truthful. My point was that after they collected evidence, including questioning the suspect, Zimmerman, they concluded that they lacked probable cause. That means that the evidence was insufficient for them to articulate why they suspected Zimmerman did not act in justified self defense; turning his action into manslaughter.

Extraneus
Hala Moddelmog, president of Arby’s Group, Inc. who just pulled its Arby’s ads on Rush Limbaugh’s show, is not just an Obama donor like David Friend of Carbonite, Inc. In fact, Moddelmog donated to John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama during the 2008 election cycle.

"that train has left the station."

Actually, bunkerbuster, the initial train of the race baiting fundamentalists (racist out of control white adult murders baby faced kid) has derailed. Look for the new handcar to be that there was a confrontation that Zimmerman escalated into a murder. Look for the race hustlers to continue to emphasize that Zimmerman didn't have life threatening injuries (as if one having one's head pounded into the pavement has to wait for a neurologist to diagnose "closed head injury" before being able to defend oneself).

Or, bunkerbuster, perhaps you have inside word on the course of Angela Corey's investigation. Do tell. By the way, on his course of stalking the poor kid Martin, did Zimmerman have time to divert to North Carolina and rape Crystal Mangum?

A former CIA officer was indicted Thursday on charges of leaking secrets to journalists, including the name of a covert agent and the role of another CIA employee in classified operations.

John Kiriakou, who had previously revealed the CIA's use of waterboarding of Al-Qaeda suspects, was charged in January with leaking secrets. The indictment allows the case to proceed to trial without an evidentiary hearing.

The indictment returned by a grand jury in Virginia charged Kiriakou with one count of violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act and three counts of violating the Espionage Act.

While it is unclear when Angela Corey will announce her decision, Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett said that he had met with emergency management teams and the federal Department of Justice to "prepare for the worst," WMKG reported.

While your ignoring my advice and instead fethcing the scotch and the slippers, here are some quotes from around the time of the Supreme courts ruling on the 'partial birth ban' act's Constitutionality.

“The court today has begun to right a terrible wrong,” said Paul Schenck, executive director of the National Pro-life Action Center on Capitol Hill.
“In upholding the will of the people in this matter, the majority has laid the first blow to Roe v. Wade and its putrefying spawn,” he said.

OUCH.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, described the ruling as the “first legal crack in the crumbling Roe v. Wade foundation.”

NK:

Neither "unarmed" nor "reason to be on the property" have any bearing on the validity of a self-defense claim.

That required the SFD to check out GZ's background (he did have an arrest and lots of calls to the SFD) to properly scrutinize the SD claim.

Neither a prior arrest nor many calls to the police have any bearing on the validity of a self defense claim.

RobC@1056-- obviously I really disagree with you regarding what the circumstances of an unarmed 17yo lawfully on the proerty require the cops and prosecutor to do. The forensics and 911 tapes, eyewitness accounts are the most relevant evidence, but the totality of the circumstances will determine whether to take the facts to a GJ. For instance, if GZ had a revoked handgun permit, if he had multiple arrests for violent assault, was he drug/alchohol impaired, if he and the dead kid had prior confrontations etc etc, all of those those circumstances would all be relevant to a prosecutor in determining the credibility of the SD claim, and PC of a crime, and how to proceed with a GJ. Sorry you're not going to convince me otherwise.

NK

RobC@1101-- that --plus big bucks for crump-- was definitely the hustlers' plan. I am one of the some who believe that.

Rob Crawford

NK, you're refusing to understand me:

It doesn't matter that he was unarmed or not, or any of the other circumstances. The investigation requires the same due diligence. It's a pure fantasy to think there are stricter requirements to investigating the use of lethal force based on the circumstances.

If you shoot an intruder in your home, have a dozen knife wounds and the intruder is holding a bloody knife, the police will dig just as deep as they would if you were on the street, unwounded, and the guy shot was unarmed.

White people all throughout the land...

I would amend that to non-blacks, Ext. I think quite a few (ethnic) groups would be troubled by that development.

"No,do your own research,present a decent rebuttal and i'll answer it."

"In other words, Dave, you cannot back up your assertion."

No,in other words, "prove it", is the kind of arguement put forward by a ten year old.

For a debate forum it's incredibly weak.

Now i've cited several key players from the political wing of the pro-life section who went on record stating that undermining roe v wade was the intention and the result of Bush's partial birth abortion act.If Jane wants to debate the way in which the act does that,she's got to come up with something a little stronger than "prove it".

Is that true, Rob.
There are a lot more potential angles to the second scenario than the first.

RobC-- it may be semantics, not a big deal. But honestly in your hypo about the shooter being in their own home with a dozen knife wounds and the dead guy was an intruder with a knife, even I would be OK with a less intense investigation of the circumstances by the cops, that's a real strong self-defense case on the face if it. But, no reason to argue hypos and semantics at this point. There is no credible public evidence discrediting GZ. How do you charge him with no rational expectation of a conviction by a fair jury? That's the situation here.

No, you idiot. For a debate forum it's effing expected. You made an assertion; it's up to you to back it up.

Just as an FYI dipshit, Jane is pro choice IIRC, to what extent I'm not sure, and appeared to merely be asking you to explain your reasoning not engage in a debate with a ranting imbecile.

RobC-- BTW -- I give you credit, the facts as they played out confirmed your opinion of what happened. All the what ifs I harped about, never happened. No one and nothing have discredited GZ's story he told the EMTs/cops and his father. So you caught on faster than I did.
