Skip to comments.Attorney for Trayvon Martin family says teen not the one on trial
Posted on 06/12/2013 8:03:48 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Attorneys quickened the pace in jury selection Wednesday in the George Zimmerman trial, as a lawyer for the family of Trayvon Martin stressed the teenager Zimmerman is accused of murdering was not the one on trial.
Juror B-35, a middle-aged black man who owns vending machines, described protests last year over Martin's shooting as "saber-rattling." He wondered why there weren't protests over the fatal shootings of other African-American men in Sanford, the Orlando suburb where Martin was killed in February 2012. He also said he believed Zimmerman deserved his day in court.
"I think they politicized it and made it a racial issue, and I didn't like that," said Juror "B-35. "I wasn't agreeing with the racial connotation."(continued)

This “trial” is turning out to be the farce everyone knew that it would be.
Well...DUH....that's because the perp is DEAD.
If he was alive, he SHOULD be the one who is on trial.
Is that clear enough for ya,you filthy lawyer?
“If he was alive, he SHOULD be the one who is on trial.”
No worries. The little puke was judged in the afterlife and the reward is someplace “warm”.
When the defendant is asserting self defense then the victim is also on trial.
Martin is on trial. The prosecution needs to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Martin did not act so as to place Zimmerman in reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily injury. So Martin’s acts are on trial.
I don't know all the Facts of the Case, but, this is a lynching of George Zimmerman in placating the inner-city tribal parasites, and Zimmerman incarcerated would be surrounded by a "Disproportionate Number of Minorities" (in DOJ/Civil Rights Dept. terminology).
He would not survive imprisonment with former hoodie-wearers......
This is what reasonable doubt for the defendent is, putting the plaintif on trial.
Funny how these black people who always wanted reasonable doubt for themselves and OJ Simpson now want to take it away in this case.
Minds of tyrants: only if I do it.
Indeed, choose content, get content. They want pop sex, they get with it pop suffering. You cannot have flesh without flesh problems and tweak it like butchers at that. MAny blacks in America are like waking into a bad drug withdrawal. Pain will be what remains.
P-Marlowe ~:” When the defendant is asserting self defense then the victim is also on trial.”
That’s true !
Especially since Travon already had stolen goods in his possession while in school. Too bad the goods weren’t linked to him by the police.
Imagine , it took a reporter to link the stolen goods to Travon, and they were found in his backpack.
Principal LEO concepts : motive , opportunity , timeing , prior history, ability , tools/property , etc.
Too bad the judge wouldn’t let prior MMA and fight club enter into court depositions/statements .
Nor the photo of the hand gun.
Incidently , after the shooting , I understand that the number of burglaries fell off dramaticly.
Where there is smoke ,..there generally is a fire !
Wow. I didn't expect to read that being said by a "middle-aged black man". Maybe suburban blacks are seeing the race card is hindering them being judged by their character since it makes everything about race.
Exactly right: “minds of tyrants,” wish I had thought of that expression
Yes, he pretty much is. It is necessary to know if he jumped Zimmerman.
That is what the whole case pretty much hangs on. And so it is necessary to know if he had a habit of jumping people and attempting to beat the tar out of them.
B-35 seems to have a brain; no doubt that’s sufficient cause for the Prosecution to seek his dismissal.
the stolen goods.....were they ever traced back to the proper owner?......
I thought I heard the family say that “Zimmerman, the one who murdered Trayvon”...on my local news tonight.
No “allegedly murdered”, no “thought to have murdered”...
Could be a set of multiple reasons there.
cherry ~ the stolen goods.....were they ever traced back to the proper owner?......
Someone on this board said that some of the goods were returned to the rightful owner.
But there is no confirmation of that ..
If he is dead, why does he have a lawyer at Jury selection?
I heard his dad said that he trusts that a fair trial will be obtained with the jurors being picked. Fair meaning they come back with a guilty verdict. If not (which is of course the correct verdict) it will be because the jury was bias or racist or something.
Bronzy ~:” Would be a gem if one of the possible jurors would say that they heard that Travon had stolen goods in his possession while in school. “
But since the police didn’t follow it up , it becomes a moot point.
Nevertheless , the issue of possession of stolen property was discovered by a reporter who followed up the backpack taken from Trayvon at school.
The property remained in the police property clerks office, so the ‘chain of evidence’ hadn’t been broken.
As I recall , the judge wouldn’t allow the backpack nor property into the trial as it wasn’t present at the timne of the assault.
How long until B-35 gets “outed” and his life and his family are threatened?
Au contraire! Trayvon is and should be on trial. He brought his own death on himself!
If “No Limit (You-know-what)” was still alive, Zimmerman would be dead (as the Skittles thug was in the process of killing him).
Trayvon should be on trial for attempted murder, but he already got the death sentence for it.
Good question ... This is a criminal trial, not civil .... Yet.
As in ALL things; FOLLOW THE MONEY.
This farce of a Show Trial, is to cater to Blacks to show that they are Protected, even when they are thugs, malcontents, and living off others (whitey). It has NOTHING to do with Justice (already put $100's of thousands in the parents pockets, when some ambulance-chaser extorted a Settlement from the Development Owners, to avoid having black mobs burn it to the ground like in LA after the Rodney King circus).
NO BLACKS were ever Prosecuted when they burned down that neighborhood, or beat up Koreans and Whites.....Reginald Denny got hammered and went to Court for a mock trial, and wound up being told to just forget about it and go home.
Few whites have EVER been successful in Racism cases against Blacks, and, there are no Deep Pockets to empty in the Black Community.
I beg to differ. The issue is self defense. Trayvon is very much on trial.
Interesting that the trial is starting now right on time for Riot Season.
I think that the current administration is trying to tear the country apart and this is the lever.
It also will take attention away from the more serious issues : like the IRS, the NSA, the lousy economy,
This is just diversion,
Indeed, just like double jeopardy was ignored in the ROdney King trial.
Do you happen to have a source for the info you just stated? Would you mind sharing?
Someone needs to put a sock in Crumpets and Crew.
Which information ?
The reporter who connected the paperwork about the jewelry in the backpack was , as I recall , from a newspaper in Miami. This backtrack by the reporter occurred several months after the assault incident .
The police had recieved the backpack (including a bag of jewelry) after school security apprehended Travon when he had marijuana in his possession on school grounds .
There would have been a CR ( Crime Report number) associated with that apprehension by school security .
There was no known police follow up on the backpack as it preceeded the assault by several months .
Additional information on this issue also included the fact that the Police Chief tried to minimize notariety of criminal issues arising at the school.
The reporter took the CR to the police property clerk which identified the backpack as belonging to Travon and the original apprehension on school grounds .
I beleive all the information is contained in FreeRepblic archives , although I don’t recall the source , nor had I made copies for futrue consideration .
Ok, thank you for that info.
