Danube of Thought

Watching an unprepared lawyer in a courtroom is awfully painful.

What was this clown thinking?

Ignatz

--Watching an unprepared lawyer in a courtroom is awfully painful.--

Depends on your perspective.
Two of the most wonderful days in my life were watching a couple of level headed judges in two separate cases castrating opposing counsel after giving them two or three days to hang themselves on largely fabricated and/or meritless cases.
Positively celebratory.

someguy

This lynching is losing its rope pretty quick.

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

They should have asked the investigator who from Justice is coaching him.

someguy

"What was this clown thinking?"

Prosecuting 101: Never ask a question you don't already know the answer to.

FAIL.

Fucking bozos trying this "case."

Gonna be fun watching the race mongers heads explode when Zimmerman walks out of that courtroom Scot free.

Clarice

So Trayon looks like he could have been Obama's son and the prosecutors perform as if they were Obama himself. Great days in American jurisprudence.

glenn

It doesn't make any difference if the prosecutors are prepared or not. It doesn't make any difference if all the evidence is exculpatory. We're not talking about facts or law or any of that silly stuff. This is about Obama carrying Florida in November.

AliceH

LOL, Clarice! +1

Deoxy
This is about Obama carrying Florida in November.

100% of blacks could vote Democrat in November, and it really wouldn't change much, since 95%+ is already built in to the numbers.

That extra 5% of the black vote will likely cost more than 5% of any other group, and those other groups are all BIGGER.

Not very bright... but then, that's par for the course.

Bard

@glenn
The counter for Florida would be to attack the "white unjustifiably attacks black" meme that's gotten the play (He's hispanic). If this prosecution is politically driven for the presidential race, it can backfire badly in a state that has as many hispanics as Florida does.

daddy

Great comments Iggy and Clarice. LOLOL!

MarkO

I'm on the road, in the Indy airport and missed the entire fiasco. This was not just a bad day; this was OJ and the gloves. I can see ethics charges and a suit against the State. Florida has nothing.

Theo

The politics of this are fascinating. Remember that this was not a big story until weeks after it happened. It did not really become national until Crump came up with Dee Dee. Then Sharpton got into the act and the liberals were forced to go along with the narrative of big scary racist white guy shoots little black kid for walking while colored. Even the governor and prosecutor did not dare stand up to the mob on this.

But as the facts come out, the narrative is losing its appeal. Zimmerman is starting to look like the victim here and that could be reflected at the ballot box.

Jane (Better a crate than a plate)

So Trayon looks like he could have been Obama's son and the prosecutors perform as if they were Obama himself.

Love it!

Bruce

I was somewhat struck by the defense's examination of one of the investigator who swore out the affidavit. Sure seemed like a lot of stuff there that he swore to, that he couldn't swear to on the stand today. It was a group document, but he couldn't testify who provided what, just to say that it was someone else (maybe the attorney they were working with?)

Also, interesting that the investigator had to testify that some of the words in it were loaded, without anything that he could point to support the loading of the words.

Alice Finkel

This publicity circus is a big problem for Obama. There have already been black on white retribution attacks "for Trayvon." There will probably be several more between now and November, and for as long as this sick dog of a case is kept alive.

While those black on white attacks may not make national news, they will make the local news. And local news watchers tend to vote.

We may have been fooled once into thinking that Obama could bring the majority of blacks into mainstream of American values and thinking. We are not likely to be fooled in that way again.

Is that what fooled we?

Right peculiar, that foolishness.

OT: anyone have any idea what "Select Specialty Hospital" means? My dad is being transferred to one, and mom is wondering what it means.

I checked the hospital's site, but it wasn't Lear to me.

Thanks!

theBuckWheat

The State's case and the MSM narrative are tied together. The MSM is going to backtrack, spin and wear out the memory hole by the time this trial is over.

Clarice

Specialized acute care hospitals run by a company names "Select", Rob..Google it for more.

Steve

Zimmerman is still in jail. He still has to post a huge bail. GPS monitoring. He faces the jeopardy of a trial by a jury that could be prejudicial against him.

This is a disgrace. Everyone of us could face a trial by the mob at any moment.

Danglen Chad, Esq.

Love all of these F Lee Baily wannabe's. This was a bail hearing not discovery or disclosure.

O'Mara morinically tipped his hand to prosecution. It also appears that they have a witness to the *chase*.

RHBH

Jose Biaz (sp?), Casey Anthony's attourney, raised an important note. He said that, since GZ had introduced both the issues of age and weapons into the proceedings, those could be questioned within the context of their introduction.

For example, DA could have questioned the frequency of armed encounters GZ experienced on his patrol. Similarly, he could have bolstered the profiling argument by fishing for general statement on GZ's part about the age of perps he has encountered.

Good points. The DA really missed a softball.

derwill

People instinctively know that innocence is no defense against the mob. And anybody can envision the nightmare scenario where you find yourself on trial and facing a long prison sentence for something you didn't do. DuDa and his fellow travelers naively seem to believe it can't happen to them, but most people are not so sanguine. The more it starts to look to the muddle like Z might just be an innocent man (in the sense that he really did shoot Martin in self-defense), the worse it's going to be for Team Obama, who as president should have had more sense than to insert himself into the middle of it before all the facts were known.

Clarice

Polico

"morinically"

LOL

Clarice

Stee, it is an outrage but he doesn't HAVe to trust his fate to a moronic jury. He can opt for trial by judge. Let Ms lots of bling and bad teeth Corey chew on that possibility.

BlahBlahBlah

"100% of blacks could vote Democrat in November, and it really wouldn't change much, since 95%+ is already built in to the numbers."

95% might be factored into the calculation, but there is nothing to say even 20% are planning to show up.

Besides, swing states could teeter on the difference of less then 20K voters. Getting Blacks in Florida to actually be motivated to show up will go a long way in an effort to "help" him.


Side-note: One also has to remember personal pride will be at play too. Obama doesn't want to lose in pitiful, Carter-like, fashion so every vote he can try to get will help keep it at least a littler closer even if he has zero chance of winning. This might be the "help" they are really going for in some places...

Meremortal

Obama's boys desperately looking for a new shiny object to distract from this latest boo-boo.

A smart politician would have "showed restraint" and waited for the facts to come in.

Barack acted stupidly. He will be hounded by this for a long time.

Hehheheheheheheh.

Polico

"They appear to have a witness to the shadows of the chase, Chad."

Not to THE chase, to A chase. So really they have shadows and earwitnesses not really seeing and kind of hearing something...maybe.

Porchlight

100% of blacks could vote Democrat in November, and it really wouldn't change much, since 95%+ is already built in to the numbers.

It's not about percentages - those are as you say. It's about turnout. Black turnout in 2008 was higher than usual for obvious reasons and Barry needs every one of those voters to return to the polls for him this year. And more, to make up the difference with the white vote he's lost.

Obama needs Pookie's cousin in FL to get off the couch.

Clarice

RHBH, Utter b.s. The DA could not on cross go into anything not covered by GZ's direct which was simply an apology to the Zimmermans. Which legal system is being used in Fla? CSI law or, um, real stuff?

Polico

"Getting Blacks in Florida to actually be motivated to show up will go a long way in an effort to "help" him."

They couldn't even get folks to fill out voter registration cards at a Treyvon rally.

Thomas Collins

Z's testimony and injuries are actually quite consistent with M beating Z up and pounding Z's head into the concrete. Z has never said he didn't struggle.

If one views the second degree murder charge as being motivated by political considerations, this may have been a good day for Corey. If the immunity hearing results in the judge throwing out the charge, Corey still gets to say that she did what she could to get justice for M. Bernice de la Rionda takes the fall.

Porchlight

That extra 5% of the black vote will likely cost more than 5% of any other group, and those other groups are all BIGGER.

Not very bright... but then, that's par for the course.

You are correct on this one Deoxy in that he risks losing more votes than he wins with this approach. But as BlahBlahBlah points out, maybe it's more about optics. If he can maximize the black vote in FL, even if he loses the election at least he can feel like he went down swinging, or something.

jwest

But I’m sure the White-Hispanic looking shadow was chasing the black shadow – or at least that’s what it sounded like.

What was disclosed is that Corey's case is a few Kibbles shy of a teaspoon.

Clarice

Ah, Instalanched --that explains the fly specks.

Porchlight

"They appear to have a witness to the shadows of the chase, Chad."

Shadows, unidentified, in the rain, in the dark.

Reads like a joke, doesn't it? You couldn't put this in a detective novel because your editor would laugh you out of her virtual office.

Danglen Chad, Esq.

Got cut off...sorry.

O'Mara knew that there wouldn't be anyone there capable of testifying to anything of substance. The Investigator appears pro forma to attest to the information in the affadavit. It's rare to the point of non-existent to question what is in the affadavit with direct examination. Questioning a police investigator about a prosecutor's choice of language is nothing more than a cheap lawyer trick. From the comments here, it worked.

BTW, Gilbraith isn't a prosecutor, he's a cop.

BlahBlahBlah

"Not to THE chase, to A chase. So really they have shadows and earwitnesses not really seeing and kind of hearing something...maybe"

Its not necessarily even to "A chase" - it could just be One Guy Walking and passing two different light sources protecting two different shadow patterns.

The only thing they really have is witness to at least one person walking.


"Oooooohhhhhh... string him up!"

Bill

"Gonna be fun watching the race mongers heads explode when Zimmerman walks out of that courtroom Scot free."

Francis W. Porretto

Floolwoig the advice of the police dispatcher, Zimmerman headed back to his car? That would make it federal, wouldn't it?

Vinny B.

Has anyone looked into the political affiliations of the prosecutors? I am sure they are Republicans trying to sabatoge this case so that the bigoted Mormon can steal the election on lies about Obama eating dogs and by pointing out that Obama is black every chance he gets. Bush destroyed the economy, not Obama. Bush's tx cuts for the rich hurt women, children, minorities, and gays in horrible ways. Unlike Bush, who cared about nothing except Big Oil and Halliburton, which is why he started two illegal wars, Obama has assisted more people than ever enjoy the benefits of the social safety net so they did not starve. Bush would have them living an Oliver Twist existence so that his cronies could have an extra private jet standing by. The bottom line is that Trayvon Martin would still be alive if Bush hadn't spent 8 years telling people they didn't have to respect or care about dark people, whether they be blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, etc.

DebinNC

Sketch artist works with "I see shadows" witness and produces the smoking gun.

Thomas Collins

O'Mara didn't tip the prosecution off to anything. Z's extensive cooperation with law enforcement makes it crystal clear what the theory of the defense will be. What O'Mara did today was make clear that if there is any plea, it's going to be on the defense's terms. In addition, even with the limited nature of Z's appearance today, O'Mara has served notice to the prosecution that he thinks Z would be a good witness. Finally, with Z's apology, O'Mara has deftly begun informing prospective jurors that Z is a good man.

twvolck

I don't think it's significant that the lead chief investigator didn't personally talk to George Zimmermen. His lawyers certainly told him not to talk to anyone but them about what happened. It would have been a waste of time to try to interview him, and he surely knew that. Indeed it is probably a violation of legal ethics for the representative of a prosecutor to try to interview a defendant who has a lawyer

Rob Crawford

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

The shadows know!!!

NK

Danglen, every lawyer has their opinion, that's what we do. But I don't think you can call O'Mara 'moronic'. First of all, O'Mara got a reasonable Bond for a client when he had no statutory right to Bond in a Murder 2 case-- he got his client FREE, that's huge. Next his client talked to the cops for hours the night this happened, anyway, so there's no surprising the State. Next, he's started putting some reasonable doubt in the Judge's and jury pool's mind. I think O'Mara did very well today, we'll see, but you can't call him moronic. That's just not right.

BlahBlahBlah

"Has anyone looked into the political affiliations of the prosecutors?"

Casey is a Democrat. Not sure about anyone else.

RHBH, Utter b.s. The DA could not on cross go into anything not covered by GZ's direct which was simply an apology to the Zimmermans. Which legal system is being used in Fla? CSI law or, um, real stuff?

Age and weapon not pertinent to a case that is clearly driven by what the DA suggests is an instance of profiling? I would think that this would be a gimme for the DA, a chance for issues importand to the DA's case to be expanded upon. Biaz seemed to think so as well.

And why, when GZ said he thought TM was closer to his age, couldn't the DA probe that assertation in an effort to get him to make a generaliztion supportive of the profiling argument? Or why, when he mentioned the part about not knowing if he was armed, couldn't the DA probe about GZ's experiences with armed people in his role with community watch. Just as the DA was caught off gaurd, why not try the same for GZ, even if it were in a limited fashion?

The judge gave a large amount of latitude to both sides, why not the the DA probe GZ's statement?

Oh, and by the way, don't watch CSI, have disliked that dumb redhead since Rambo 1.

Get Real

This all about whipping up the black vote in November, the problem is, this REALLY alienates white voters and also Latinos (Zimmerman is Latino).

The black vote is already maxed out to the Democrat Party. That extra .01% of black turnout turnout will alienate the majority of Americans.

This is OJ all over again, with Obama saying Trayvon looks like his son. Slick Move.

Rob Crawford

Brilliant parody, Vinny B!!

daddy

Two weeks back we saw the Solicitor General of the US waltz into the Supreme Court and get repeatedly clobbered by straightforward softball questions about Obamacare's Constitutionality that any high schooler paying attention had already pondered. Apparently those arguments were all completely new news to him (and to half the Lawyers on the MSMS staffs.)

Yesterday, Joe Bottini, corrupt Prosecutor in the Ted Stevens Trial, blamed his corrupt actions in the Ted Stevens Ttial on Ted Stevens, because Stevens demanded a speedy trial, thus not allowing Bottini and his Prosecution Team to be sufficiently prepared so that they wouldn't have had to act corruptly.

Now we watch De la Rionda admit he wasn't prepared to come into a courtroom on the biggest day of his professional life, and admit to being completely unprepared to competently react to what went on in today's courtroom.

I have been bamboozled. Reading DoT and Clarice and Jane and MarkO and TC and all you other Lawyers here at JOM, I have been suckered into thinking that Lawyer's in general were brilliant and intelligent. Now I find out otherwise, and that a great number of them are dimwitted, lazy buffoons, incapable of taking personal responsibility for their laziness and buffoonery without blaming it on somebody else.

I blame JOM for giving me this false impression.

Can I sue TM?

Plethora of flashlights, but we're all still in the dark.

The case is a few skittles short of my cup of tea.

BlahBlahBlah

"O'Mara got a reasonable Bond for a client when he had no statutory right to Bond in a Murder 2 case-- he got his client FREE, that's huge."

It should be noted - for only 15K out of pocket (which can easily be donated by any number of sources even if he cant come up with it)

The prosecution wanted at least a million if they lost and he was given bail. They lost, and then lost again for good measure...

Jane

I've had only a little experience with racial tension between blacks and hispanics, living in Northern VA. It's real and it's tense.

We do a kids' church ministry, and for the first year, the hispanic kids were afraid to come. It took a lot of work to ensure them that they would be perfectly safe on our watch. They are the new underclass, because of their recent immigration status, and because they kind of replaced blacks on the low totem pole or something.

Or maybe they're just an easy target. I don't really know.

So I really do wonder what good this will do Obama.

cboldt

-- It's rare to the point of non-existent to question what is in the affadavit with direct examination. --


See Judge Hirsch's order in the Wyche case. He cites sections of witness transcript, and is otherwise quite deep in the weeds of the competing stories as told by numerous witnesses.


Not to say the hearing had direct examination of a witness on the stand, but the state isn't free to hold a person incarcerated by making general allegations. It must produce the evidence to support the allegation, or at least assert under oath that such evidence exists.

Thomas Collins

There's a difference, cboldt. Whatever one thinks of Corey, I don't think that she'll be disbarred when the dust clears. Whether Corey wins re-election is not going to hinge on whether the criminal law equivalent of Irving Younger gives her an A in trial practice.

This case is all about the optics.

NK

ThomasC- I agree with your 4:01-- and add, O'Mara GOT HIS CLIENT OUT OF JAIL (soon). GZ had no automatic righ to Bond against Murder 2 charge (as I understand Fla law), O'Mara won a reasonable Bond. That was the goal today and O'Mara won the battle. With his client soon out of jail, the case can proceed at O'Mara's pace, and the plea negotiations can proceed at O'Mara's pace as well. If GZ is sitting in Seminole County lock up pending trial-- the pressure is on GZ. That pressure is now off. Again, today was a very good day for GZ IMO.

"Even though crimes were allegedly committed, at this point, what is taking place is comparable to a civil trial. As such, it is time for Mr. Obama to produce competent evidence. If he has no evidence to produce, he's in public opinion trouble. If a court or Congress forces the production of his original documents, it's over for Obama.

Simple little mistakes: hastily uploading an assembled image without first printing and scanning, and cutting a "2008" rubber stamp to create the appearance of "1980." And the Selective Service forgery alone is enough to end Obama's presidency.

Sheriff Arpaio is under personal attack, but curiously, the control-test findings of his team are not being refuted. Apparently oblivious of the fact that the White House tried to cover its tracks by quickly replacing its original file image, NPR naively reports: "For the record, we opened the file using Adobe Photoshop and found that [the birth certificate] contained only a single layer of information." Fortunately, thousands have the original White House posting preserved for perpetuity.

The establishment media are trying every way they can think of to discredit Sheriff Joe. As WND.com president Joseph Farah recently wrote, "[t]hey are no longer just protecting Obama. They are now protecting their own reputations." The problem, of course, is that after all the attacks on Joe Arpaio are exhausted and after all the dust settles, the evidence of Obama's forgeries will remain.

The problem for Obama and his enablers is that the evidence is objective. And it's there for everyone to see. Generations from now, professors in Adobe Photoshop and journalism classes will be discussing and analyzing the evidence of Obama's forgeries.

The very result that timid conservatives and liberal reporters feared will eventually catch up with them: loss of credibility.

On the flipside, those who questioned Obama's bizarre secrecy eventually will be vindicated."

Fla. prosecutor in Martin case wins re-election

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida prosecutor who charged George Zimmerman with second-degree murder is going to spend another four years in office.

Angela Corey on Friday won a new term after no one stepped forward to challenge the Republican in this year's election. Qualifying ended at noon.

I found that attitude annoying and one which I felt helped O'Mara greatly. I also found it troubling that any time O'Mara tried to nail down specifics of the affidavit (ie, who on the procecution's side wanted the inclusion of the word 'profiled' or the cursing statments of GZ) he would rather smugly affirm that he did not and was unaware of who did. Did he just sign the damn thing without reading or participating in it's creation? Strange stuff right there.
