Posted on 07/08/2013 7:21:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
George Zimmerman's trial defense attorney Don West recently reported he received e-mails from people threatening his daughters with rape over a controversial post on Instagram. Rachel West, who was not in the family picture, was in the courtroom Monday.
In a response to a July 2nd prosecution's request to investigate the social media post, West said the family photo prompted "threats of violence" that were "vicious." West also said he was distressed that in a request to investigate the post, the prosecution had made "reckless, dangerous and inaccurate allegations."
Prosecutors linked the motive for the post to witness Rachel Jeantel, also known as Diamond Eugene and Dee Dee. She was the last to talk to Trayvon Martin over the phone before Zimmerman killed him Feb. 26, 2012. Jeantel, who speaks both Creole and Spanish, did not speak English well and said she did not read and write cursive.....

I suspect when acquittal is announced, we will be reminded.
Well, Mr. West, you are dealing with some very nasty and extremely uncivilized people who have been purposely whipped into an ignorance and race fueled frenzy by a media that is knowingly lying and a president who acted extremely stupidly.
You are seeking justice, and they are seeking justu$, and I expect this isn’t going to end very well.
Dirty Harry had a more modern solution;)
Jeantel, who speaks both Creole and Spanish, did not speak English well and said she did not read and write cursive.....
Total Horse Clap ....
He didn’t post it. His daughter did. The ice cream cones is a family thing. Have you never had a child do something less than smart?
His DAUGHTER posted it, he knew nothing about it.
That attorney continues to prove that he’s an idiot. Agree with other poster. He should take a daily dose of stfu until the trial is over.
Rape threats however are beyond stupid and well into criminal.
A young woman posted a picture of her and her sister and her dad eating ice cream.
It had a caption about beating stupidity and it was made a day or so before Jeantel’s testimony.
The girl is not part of the trial.
Exactly. Some folks either have never been parents, or have no earthly idea what their kids are up to.
Make sure those girls are armed with a Keltec —
Ooh look. Another misogynist who insists dad’s job makes it okay to threaten young women.
BTW, she posted it BEFORE her dad examined Miss Rachel Jeantel on the witness stand, so it couldn’t have been in reference to her testimony, could it?
Then his daughter has an idiot for a father. First rule he should have layed down for the family: everyone guzzle a gallon of stfu until the trial is over.
Had GZ been obviously black, he would never have been charged.
How does Angela Corey look at herself in the mirror?
Fortunately for him, I believe he’s a Peruvian through his mother so that option may be open to him.
You may want to check your timeline, I believe it was after goiter neck testified. I think they were celebrating with ice cream Mr. West mopping the floor with Ms. “YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS SSSSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRR”.
The State should have packed it in then and there! Star Witness LOL!
There is no way to know as to what the caption refers. We do know that it isn’t about the testimony of Jenteal as she hadn’t testified at the time of the porting.
Just because a person is engaged in a trial doesn’t mean his entire family is engaged or even aware of what is going on at the trial. They may care less what their father does at work.
