3. The mystery in this case -- the great unknown -- is why Zimmerman was not charged and booked. It's a legitimate issue (and I think Trayvon's parents call to get the DoJ involved is not unreasonable). It's also one that it would be irresponsibnle to answer right now.

Because the information available wasn't sufficient to sustain an indictment. Further, speedy trial attaches. Since there is no statute of limitations on murder, and the prosecution only gets one shot, why not wait? Is the interest of the state justice, or crowd control?

What other scenario makes sense?

Oops, I take it back - it should be American Board of Recorded Evidence, not Forensic Evidence.

However, searching "American Board of Recorded Evidence" -zimmerman -owen

generates a host of vaguely sketchy hits. If I had to guess, it's a for-profit certification agency.

We have strong evidence that supports George's statements, but we don't have any statements or other evidence that corroborates his statement about how the initial contact between George and Martin transpired.

You're right, we don't know what happened at the moment of contact up to the point of the shot being fired.

But that's AFTER the end of Zimmerman's 911 call.

julescator

In a week or two some of you will have Martin chasng Zimmerman and Martin with the guy. It's getting more and more ridiculous. Just go back to how you felt when you heard OJ's wife was killed. Most of you said he as guilty from the start with NO evidence. OJ certainly wasn't holding a smoking knife AND at the scene of the crime yet he was arrested.

Zimmerman stalked the kid. Every piece of evidence says Zimmerman killed the kid in cold blood. Also - the eveidence that comes out each day supports the fact that Zimmerman has been telling less than the truth.

The Sanford Lead Homicide Investigator determined that Zimmerman should be arrested for at the very least, manslaughter.

Things didn't go off the rails until the State Prosecutor overtuned the orginal decision - more than likely political. So here we are at the intersection of racism & Police incompetence = bad combo.

julescator:

The evidence appears to cut both ways. What is NOT clear to me is how close and in what position were Zimmerman and Trayvon when the shot was fired? That would seem to tell a lot about what happened. And I do not remember seeing a thing about something that seems pretty basic.

Julescator:

jimmyk

The evidence appears to cut both ways.

Really, appalled? Please point out the evidence cutting in the direction of Zimmerman killing Trayvon in cold blood. (We know he killed Trayvon, so pointing out that he had a gun and shot it is not evidence that he did so "in cold blood.")

Porchlight

Appalled,

Multiple witnesses say Martin was on top of Zimmerman just before the shot was fired and that Zimmerman was crying for help. So that evidence does not "cut both ways" - or at least there is nothing that gives any credence to the idea that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance, in cold blood.

xbradtc

Every piece of evidence says Zimmerman killed the kid in cold blood.

Nothing says cold blood like having your victim sit on your chest and beat you.

Jan, jurors, you know, people like you and me? They have the duty to weigh the credibility of any testimony from witnesses. I've seen enough evidence here to call into question a good bit of any testimony these "experts" might give. And that's before any defense attorney gets around to impeaching their testimony.

Crack R. Jack

Enlightened

Ok here is another angle that peaks my interest. 911 calls for "suspicious persons" are not even close to a priority call. Normally a officer responds when they can. GZ 911 call was in no way a priority call - no weapons mentioned, no injuries, no fighting, no rioting, no property damage - nothing but a "suspicious person" was mentioned. And yet the police responded and were on scene in roughly 9 minutes. On average 911 response time for priority calls is 5-8 minutes. So it seems to me the police thought this was a urgent situation. Which again leads me to think maybe someone called 911 in addition to GZ to report a suspicious person.

Appalled

Porchlight:

The person calling for help is at least in dispute. And cold blood has nothing to do with it. If Zimmerman had successfully disentangled himself from Trayvon, and THEN plugged him, it's different than him plugging him while still wrestling.

I don't really care to speculate. I just don't think we know what we think we know aboput what happened.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Enlightened: I think I read that Z called the non-emergency number, not the 911 emergency line. However, the police probably responded to the 911 emergency call(s) by witness John and other apt. residents. As I recall, several calls were made.

Martin with a guy? Where is his girlfriend and why is this a week away from morphing into a gay rights spectacle?

Oops - meant to type "gun" not guy.

Whew.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

The person calling for help is at least in dispute. And cold blood has nothing to do with it. If Zimmerman had successfully disentangled himself from Trayvon, and THEN plugged him, it's different than him plugging him while still wrestling.

What is in dispute? John saw Martin on top of Zimmerman and heard Zimmerman screaming for help, he calls 911, looks back at the sound of the shot and sees Martin lifeless lying next to Zimmerman and then another witness sees Zimmerman on his feet appearing dazed and holding his head.

And I don't discount this neighbor's report less than 24 hours after the incident:

The neighbor is talking for the first time about what he saw on George Zimmerman's face less than 24-hours after Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

"I saw George. He was banged up. His head had two big bandages, that weren't flat, had a bump on them," the neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said.

He described where the injuries were.

"I seen him have a big bandage on his nose and his nose swollen. On the side, where his eyes were at, it was swollen," he said.

He points out exactly where on a picture.

"I seen the bandage right here, and this side of his nose and this side of his nose was swollen.

The surveillance video was released by Sanford police of Zimmerman when he was brought in for questioning after the shooting. Bruises and bandages aren't visible, but you can see an officer looking at the back of his head.

"Once you get into a fight you don't show bruises that day, it shows the next day," he said.

The neighbor says Zimmerman had to have acted in self-defense.

"I think something happened that night where he had to defend himself," the neighbor said.

He says that the voice heard screaming on the 911 call is that of George Zimmerman.

"I hear his voice every single day, I talk to him every single day," he said.

He says the case has haunted him.

"I've been thinking about it morning noon and night ever since I seen the bandages on him," he said.

He believes Zimmerman was defending his life, and that's why he's defending Zimmerman now. He says he doesn't believe race played a role in what happened.

"I don't think race is involved at all, because I've seen black, African-American folks come to George's house," he said.

The neighbor says he's tired of Zimmerman being portrayed as the bad guy.

"Everyone needs to let the justice system take its course before rushing to judgment," he said.

I have not heard. However, there was a good looking black guy on Fox the other day who was defending Zimmerman against charges of racism. He said he had been a very close friend of George's for the past six years.

"Hmm, I started the morning believing I was not anti-science, but my view may evolve (if I believe in evolution...)."

You are, all the way. You are engaging in pseudoscience by cutting and pasting quotes instead of seeking the evidence that would falsify your most cherished hypothesis.

"When conducting voice identification, it is important to create an exemplar of the accused for audio comparison using as exact conditions and equipment as close as possible to the measurements taken from the evidence as outlined above."

That's pretty easy to do with Zimmerman. My hypothesis predicts that Zimmerman won't do that and you won't call for him to do that.

"What this says to me is that establishing an accurate match of one person (such as for a bank account password) is dependent on the media used, and the quality of the person's voice."

Then demand that Zimmerman produce a positive control recording! That's what someone seeking the truth would call for.

"If I were the prosecutor I would be begging for better experts - sending up a guy who doesn't believe in the science won't be helpful."

That's probably the most lame thing you've written about this.

You're just wishing that the prosecutor will be a pseudoscientist like you. I'd be challenging Zimmerman to produce a control recording. The pretense that you are trying on both hats here is transparently phony.

From a 2009 article in Popular mechanics..."CSI Myths: The Shaky Science Behind Forensics....."

"...Some types of evidence may be completely discredited. That's what happened with voiceprint analysis and lead analysis of bullets, which were popular forensic techniques until studies showed significant error rates."

How about comparisons when someone's hands are around the subject's throat, changing the acoustic impedance of the subject's vocal tract?

xbradtc

JZ, so far, all we have is two press releases from self proclaimed experts.

Zimmermann is under no compulsion to produce ANY evidence, or to refute any claims by anyone. And you can be damn sure any attorney he has retained has reminded him of that time and time again.

Now, if the Sanford PD, or the DA's office had produced 2 experts that claimed the voice on the tape wasn't Zimmermann, that might be of interest, but would hardly be conclusive evidence that Zimmerman was not defending himself. Because you still have to get over the hurdle that witnesses have seen Martin on top of Zimmermann.

Hmmm ...


Tom Owen. Is he really a "forensics expert?"


Well, no. He has a B.A. in History, not forensics.


Well, surely since he's an expert, he went to Harvard or Yale or Oxford, right?


Well, no he went to Bellarmine College in Kentucky. You've heard of Bellarmine College, right?


Well, but surely he's worked for the FBI or CIA as a forensics examiner?


No, but he did work for the New York Public Library in charge of their Rogers and Hammerstein archive.


But surely he's written some books about forensics that the FBI and CIA use, right?


No, but he has written extensively about the banjo and did a coloring book:

Tom Owen, Scaling the Fretboard (Chappell Music 1973)
Tom Owen, The Chord Coloring Book (Chappell Music 1974)
Tom Owen, Tenor Banjo (Chappell Music 1975)
Tom Owen, Lead Guitar (Chappell Music 1976)
Tom Owen, The Classic Blues Singers (Chappell Music 1977)

What about his wife Jennifer Owen ... surely she's a hotshot FBI forensics examiner, right?


No, she makes Powerpoint presentations and is a secretary with a political science degree, not a forensics degree.


But surely they have an advanced forensic acoustics laboratory where they conduct their forensic analysis right?


No, they just have a computer in the basement of their house in New Jersey right next to the railroad tracks.


But surely he's a member of the American Board of Recorded Evidence?


Yes, but he and his wife run the Board. He's the chairman, and she's a board member. The Board is run out of a weight-loss clinic in Springfield, Missouri along with a bunch of other dubious "boards," "colleges" and "Institutes."


American Board for Certification in Homeland Security‎ - Address: 2750 East Sunshine St. Springfield, MO
American Association for Integrative Medicine Inc - Address: 2750 East Sunshine St. Springfield, MO
American College of Forensic‎ Examiners International - Address: 2750 East Sunshine St. Springfield, MOC
College of Wellness - Address: 2750 East Sunshine St. Springfield, MO
American Psychotherapy Association - Address: 2750 East Sunshine St. Springfield, MO

There are no colleges or real boards here. There's a fat farm weight loss clinic at that location. They appear to have certified themselves experts by running this board themselves.


Now, let's examine the software they used to perform their analysis. How good is it?

Well, given two KNOWN samples of speech by President Richard M. Nixon, the software only matched two recordings to a 86% match.


Remember, Mr. Owen said he'd expect a 90% match before he concluded that the voices were identical. Although when he's testifying in murder cases, he claims a 68% match is enough to send someone to prison for the rest of their life (CT v Sheila Davalloo). Even in the software makers own demonstration of the product, using two KNOWN samples of speech from the same famous person, there was only an 86% match.


What about the algorithm they're using to make the comparison? How good is it? UNKNOWN. That's proprietary. They won't tell you what they're actually measuring.


What about the second "expert," Ed Primeau. Surely he was educated in forensics?


Nope. He was a Communication Major, like Katie Couric. Only he didn't graduate and was awarded no degree. He was a probation officer


Here's what he said: "I believe that's Trayvon Martin in the background, without a doubt," Primeau says, stressing that the tone of the voice is a giveaway. "That's a young man screaming."

And remember, there's allegedly NO AUDIO TO COMPARE OF TRAYVON's VOICE. But somehow, the second expert was able to match it even without any way to compare what he heard to a known recording of Trayvon Martin.

M. Simon

Baffle gab? No engineer talk. And PERFECTLY understandable by another engineer.

M. Simon

And the point of this voice "recognition"? To impeach eyewitnesses and Trayvon's father's statements on the matter?

Kathy Kattenburg

There are no confirmed eyewitnesses to the shooting -- only unnamed people who say they saw something, and maybe they did, but at this point it's very vague.

And Trayvon's father was not on the scene. He's relying solely on what his son told him, which is perfectly understandable -- he's his father. But that's hardly unimpeachable evidence, either -- and certainly nothing you would take more seriously than what Trayvon's parents have said. I don't see how Robert Zimmerman is more credible than Trayvon's parents. Why would you believe him over them?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

John was an eye witness to Trayvon pummeling George and George screaming.

OK, now I have a migraine. I'm glad I'm not in this jury pool, but my inclination would probably be to disregard all this mumbo jumbo and go with eyewitness testimony.

Patriot4Freedom

Kathy K -

You should be ashamed of yourself - and you really should quit posting such easily disproven tripe.

Please go to the Sanford city website and read the Police Report and listen to the 911 calls.

The police took statements from witnesses that night, so there are clearly NOT "unnamed people" - they are just not known to the public. With the exception of several witnesses who have come forward and identified themselves. George Z himself voluntarily returned to the scene with the police to show them what he claimed happened.

Nothing that ANY of the parents say is dispositive, and no one here is saying so. You are entitled to think the prosecutor should have issued an arrest warrant, but you are not being honest when you claim that the shooting was not investigated. Neither are you honest when you claim that GZ confronted TM, without any evidence to support same.

If you are referring to the "actual moment the shot was fired", you are being completely disingenuous. Everyone knows who was shot, and who did the shooting. The lack of a witness to that exact moment in time is hardly an impediment to any reasoned determination of the events that transpired that night.

The suspect repeats each example phrase multiple times to produce recordings with as close a match as possible to the timing and speech pattern of the unknown examples.

The defense will never go that route. They have witnesses who gave police statements. And Mr. Martin's (pere) lapse.

This speaks volumes about your character..or lack thereof!

Kathy Kattenburg

"John was an eye witness to Trayvon pummeling George and George screaming."
Yes, an anonymous witness known only by his first name (it it is his first name), John.

There needs to be a trial so that this witness and others can be subpoenaed by their real entire names and testify to what they saw and/or heard.

Kathy Kattenburg

That should be "IF it is his first name."

Clarice

Sure, let's break him on the wheel of justice even if we know er haven't probable cause of an arrest. You really are something, kk. "John" is a known entity--with lynch mobs roaming the place, it's better not to reveal his full identity I think.

Cecil Turner

Aw, what's a little witness intimidation amongst [girl]friends?

Kathy Kattenburg

Patriot4Freedom,

I have listened to two of the 911 calls: the one made by George Zimmerman himself, and the one made by a woman who heard the altercation from inside her home -- it was happening right in front of her house.

"You are entitled to think the prosecutor should have issued an arrest warrant, but you are not being honest when you claim that the shooting was not investigated. Neither are you honest when you claim that GZ confronted TM, without any evidence to support same."

I am not claiming the shooting was not investigated. Indeed, the problem is exactly the opposite: the shooting WAS investigated at the time it happened. George Zimmerman was questioned for five hours, and the Sanford police, from everything I've read and listened to, *wanted* to arrest him. But the prosecutor drove in to Sanford from 50 miles away when he heard of the arrest, and nixed it. He told the police to release Zimmerman, and that's what they did.

As for GZ confronting TM, it's not true there is "no evidence" to support this. It's fairly obvious, from listening to his 911 call, as well as the call TM made to his girlfriend just before he was shot (and that he was still on when he *was* shot), that he WAS following TM, and that TM, prior to realizing he was being followed, had not approached GZ or done anything to reasonably arouse suspicion.

It's entirely possible that there was some sort of scuffle before TM was shot, but keep in mind that TM had the same right to self-defense that anyone else has. GZ is not a police officer. He was not wearing a uniform of any kind. As far as TM had any way of knowing, he was a total stranger who was following him for no legitimate reason. He certainly had a right to defend himself. In fact, he stayed closer to the "Stand Your Ground" law than GZ did, since he literally was standing his ground, and GZ was following TM.

Jim Ryan

he literally was standing his ground

You need to get this information to the authorities right away, Kathy. There is an important investigation going on and they need this vital evidence.

Kathy Kattenburg

"BTW, I never did see a response to the last comments on the page here:"

Gosh, Patriot4Freedom, I did not realize that I was obligated to continue answering comments until given permission to leave. The truth is, I didn't ignore those last two comments -- I just got involved in other stuff and forgot to return to the site. I'm really, really sorry.

Clarice

Gosh, did you HEAR that 911 call to the girlfriend or just see a report by someone who said that's what she said. I still haven't seen even her FIRST NAME andI never heard that call oe even saw a transcript of it.. I did hear the Martin counsel say the gf wasn't talking to the cops and would only speak to the feds. If you have evidence in your possession like that, TURN IT IN,

Kathy Kattenburg

"Uh. I was under the impression we were discussing who was screaming."

Yes, M. Simon. I read this line in Tom's post: "If this trial is televised I won't be able to hit the remote and get to baseball quickly enough." and then wrote a comment directly related to that sentence that Tom wrote in his post.

After this, I continued reading comments until I came to this one:
"And the point of this voice "recognition"? To impeach eyewitnesses and Trayvon's father's statements on the matter?"
I then proceeded to comment on the suggestion contained in this comment that the voice recognition constitutes "impeaching...eyewitnesses."
Following this, Patriot4Freedom responded to this comment that I made, and I then responded to his comment.

So that's how we got away from voice recognition. I hope this explanation suffices to clear up any confusion.

Kathy Kattenburg

"You need to get this information to the authorities right away, Kathy. There is an important investigation going on and they need this vital evidence."

I think they might need Tom's information about the inadequacy of the voice recognition tool's results, because they clearly don't have that.

They already have the information that I mentioned.
