Its been just over a year since the world was introduced to Rachel Jeantel, the friend of Trayvon Martins who testified on behalf of the prosecution in the George Zimmerman murder trial, but may have ended up doing more harm than good.
CNN caught up with Jeantel this week, asking her if she blamed herself when Zimmerman went free. A little bit, she replied. Asked if she should have said something different or acted differently on the stand, she answered, Act different. Jeantel said the jurors in the case didnt take her seriously as a witness, judging her for the way she looks and talks.
While Jeantels reading level was not above that of a third grader last summer, she has since turned her life around, undergoing intensive tutoring and graduating from high school this spring. She now credits the turnaround to her experience with the trial, saying she kept her word to Trayvon Martin to complete her high school education.
But the frank attitude she displayed in the courtroom was still there when the reporter asked her what she would say to Zimmerman today. He did wrong, and hes got to man up to it, she said. To me, youre not a man, George Zimmermans not a man. Thats still a little boy, with a grown body.
Watch video below, via CNN:
Shouldn’t Michelle 0bama do an intervention on her or something?
She let him walk free?
I think all warning labels should be written in cursive.
Her 15 minutes were up a long time ago. I can’t believe CNN still cares about anything she has to say. I guess that’s why CNN can’t build an audience.
She still appears to be as stunning today as yes-tah-day
Why is the media dredging her up now? I can only assume to avoid talking about real current stories like the IRS or ISIS.
These disgusting lowlifes are going to keep pushing and pushing until they start hostilities between citizens in this country and they believe, IMO, the outcome will be the disarming of Americans.
These fools don't understand that the can of worms they're working to open will most likely not end the way they wish, and in fact will lead to their own demise in a very violent and well deserved manner.
She needs to be either in Congress or on the “View”
It’s the “first anniversary” of Mr. Zimmerman’s acquittal. I $#*+ you not!
Zimmerman went free, but not FREE. His initial suit against NBC go shot down, and don’t forget his troubled personal life. He walked away from that whole thing, but he’s not going to be the same person he was before St. Skittles came into his life.
In a year she went from reading at a third grade level to high school graduate. Yep, I totally buy that!
While Jeantels reading level was not above that of a third grader last summer, she has since turned her life around, undergoing intensive tutoring and graduating from high school this spring.
Which means she got up to the fourth grade level.
I’m sure she blames herself, if she was hangin with her homie that night she could have helped beat Zimmerman to death and he would have never walked again, free or otherwise. Hell if she had just sat on him she’d a probably killed him!
High schools probably let you pass if you are reading at a 4th or 5th grade level these days. Plus they wanted her gone, she was legally drinking whiskey in class and it distracted the other kids.
Your (and my) tax dollars at work.
I didn’t know there were any requirements to graduate from high school.
Note also they didn’t mention what reading level she’s up to.
Gee. She’s depressed. So sad.
Don’t the Japanese have an honorable way out of such a psychological cul-de-sac?
