Here is part of what Trayvon’s girlfriend DeeDee actually said: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jhes6BlFf8&feature=related
She also speculated that someone pushed Trayvon “because the headset fell off and the line went dead,” but she had no way of knowing exactly what happened from what she said in the interview.
If Trayvon was the one screaming for help why did at least one eyewitness say it was Zimmerman? Why did Zimmerman tell police he cried for help?
The headset could have just as easily fallen off when Trayvon coldcocked Zimmerman and broke his nose.
I do believe that DeeDee did say she attempted to call Trayvon back and got no response, but I don't have the evidence for that. As far as calling anyone else, I don't know.
>>The headset could have just as easily fallen off when Trayvon coldcocked Zimmerman and broke his nose.<<
We'll find out. I'm sure her phone records have been subpoenaed and every call she made or received that night will be revealed.
If Trayvon was “pushed to the ground” how would DeeDee even know that, since she was on the phone and the phone went dead about that time? Maybe she did hear someone being pushed to the ground just before the phone went dead. How could she tell if it was Trayvon or George? I don’t think her testimony is going to be too helpful to the prosecution, and it might even be the defense that calls her to the stand as a hostile witness.
If Zimmerman’s intent was to confront Martin why did he call the police? Why not pull up alongside him the truck? The entire Martin narrative is built on faulty logic.
Who would call the police before and during their hunt to kill someone?
Who would call the police immediately after killing them and report themselves?
Who cries for help while beating on someone?
At the point Martin loses Zimmerman why doesn’t he just walk home?
The questions just keep coming.
So many questions. Here’s another...
Why would a guilty man willingly go to the police station and go over and over what happened and come back the next day to walk them through the events of the previous evening with no attorney present? With George’s dad being some kind of a retired low level magistrate, it’s not exactly like George wouldn’t know to shut up if he thought he had any culpability. I love this video. Never talk to the police.
It might be a career breaker.
I can't wait for the forensic analysis. Were there powder burns on Trayvon's hands? What part of his hands? Does that indicate that he had his hand/s on the gun when it went off?
She heard Trayvon being pushed to the ground? How does someone hear that? The only way she would know is if he said “I have just been pushed to the ground.”
Is there any medical proof yet that Zimmerman’s nose was actually broken? It could have been bloodied but not broken.
>>Is there any medical proof yet that Zimmermans nose was actually broken? It could have been bloodied but not broken.<<
Not that I have seen. There’s not much proof of anything yet.
>>She heard Trayvon being pushed to the ground? How does someone hear that? The only way she would know is if he said I have just been pushed to the ground.<<
Unfortunately, in the interview, she claimed that the phone went dead shortly after Z asked T what he was doing there.
>>So many uncomfortable questions for the prosecution.

Bingo. Angela Corey, meet Marcia Clark
My guess is that Corey will not do the actual prosecution she will hand it to a subordinate prosecutor. If she does, judging by her press conference, she will be eaten alive in the courtroom and act like a clown outside of it for the press. Marcia Clark X2.
Judging how giddy she was when she announced the charges, I doubt she will be able to resist being in the courtroom. Maybe she will get Nifonged. :-)
I have seen that video and it’s good advice. He probably shouldn’t have done all that talking even if innocent but it sure doesn’t make sense for a guilty man to do it.
Watch the press just drop the story if it starts to go south for her though. But that would be hard to do after all this buildup.
I just hope that Z’s story was consistent if he’s innocent. Reminds me of Judge Judy... she always gets the parties talking and when she catches the first one in a lie, she rules for the other side. :-)
>>She is supposedly going to retire in the near future so she probably thinks this is her ticket for a high-profile win to end her career on.<<
hmmm... I wonder if she has looked at any statistics on prosecution wins in high profile cases. I don’t think they are too good.
Hmm, more uncomfortable questions. I wonder how much of the prosecution's case will rest on the initial investigation that was allegedly corrupt and/or shoddy?
>>If his story wasn’t consistent with the evidence and witness testimony you would think he would have been charged to begin with. <<
Maybe we’ll see the first prosecutor and the initial investigators called as witnesses for the defense. Wouldn’t that be a spectacle.
Yes it would and at some point I would think they would want to defend their decisions publically. If they’re not called as witnesses in the case maybe Greta will have them on her show to comment on the case as it unfolds. :-)
If someone who is really knowledgable about this case can summarize the facts, it may be time for me to do a Hitler rant about it. What is the actual amount of the bounty? Did both Sharpon and Jackson go down there? What were Sharpton’s specific threats? Which network did what in false reporting?
Hi Doug, Rush last week say that Zimmerman should be able to collect the bounty, since he turned himself in. :-)
Heard that on his show today. Pretty funny.
"What is hearsay evidence, Alex?"
You’ve got two options: stay off Zimmerman threads or get the Zot. Is that clear?
You are contributing nothing to the conversation. And why are you linking to clearly left-wing sources and regurgitating Trayvon’s girlfriend’s Alice-in-Wonderland talking points?
