Skip to comments.Day 13 (Week #3) Zimmerman Trial – Witness Discussion Thread…
Posted on 06/26/2013 5:34:24 AM PDT by Uncle Chip
Today, June 26th, is DAY #13 (of 3rd week) State of Florida V. George Zimmerman case. An explosive second day of deconstructed witness testimony took place yesterday. Which leads to the big question:
Will witness #8, Rachel Jeantel, be called to the stand today?
[Yesterday could] only be characterized as an utter debacle for the prosecution in Florida v. Zimmerman. Besides the testimony of a couple of highly professional law enforcement witnesses, the testimony of the the other State witnesses ranged from signing George Zimmermans praises, to acknowledging the utility of following a suspicious person from a distance, to being utterly discredited by razor sharp cross-examination of the defense.
Before we even get to the disaster that was the States witnesses, however, we first have to discuss this mornings hearing and the extent to which it evanescent is the States case against George Zimmerman. State: Zimmerman Is So Good, He Must Be Bad ............

Well.... in all fairness, they have to go with what they got.
If they are smart, they will drop Witness #8. She could lose the case for them single-handedly.
Maybe the Prosecution could get JAY CARNEY to ‘stand-in’ for Witness #8.
How do you know who witness #8 is? So, the judge just ruled that all of Zimmermans phone calls can be played? Who was the juror that was released? Is it just for today or for good?
Juror B72 dismissed for reasons not related to the case. He was an alternate juror.
Shouldn’t the defense already know who witness #8 is through discovery?
I am admittedly not on top of how these things work, since I haven’t been in a trial situation other than traffic court years ago.
Jane Surdika is up — RATL resident
WFTV said the juror was released just for today.
State witness #9 Jane Surdyka, unemployed recreation therapist, ex-middle school teacher, lived in Retreat at Twin Lakes.
What is a recreation therapist???
“Who would be out there in the pouring rain.”
The “boy’s voice”
Hears pop pop pop — three pops
Sounds like someone Al Gore would hire.
Horrible witness. She’s clearly been coached (”it was the boys voice”) and she heard three shots.
This is gonna be good...
What the hell? The “recreation therapist” claims there were three pops/shots??? There has been NO evidence of such. All reports, including autopsy report, have shown one bullet wound only.
Wow! Looks like more ‘creative testifying’ on the part of the Trayvies.
She has accidentally said “two men” or “men’s voices” a few times and quickly corrected herself. She has been thoroughly prepped to be sure the jurors think the man’s voice was Zimmerman’s. I’d bet Trayvon’s voice was pretty scary when he was mad or attacking someone...a lot scarier and manlier than Zimmerman’s.
I went in and listened to all the 911 calls on Sanford PD website before they all got jerked. This woman was distraught and sounded befuddled on the phone with Sanford PD and they asked her if she wanted someone to come out and talk to her. She said she lived alone and she was “so concerned” about whoever got shot.
It’s clear to me the “boys” voice is GZ. He has a higher, younger voice.
“...Shes clearly been coached (it was the boys voice)...”
She called Trayvon a “boy? What a racist!!
There is a reason why this woman is an “ex” teacher. What single woman would walk away from a lucrative teaching career???
She probably gets flustered easily and over reacts and gets her facts wrong.
On the 911 call she says she hears one pop.
Her call is late in the incident. It takes place when the police begin to arrive.
this broad is a piece of work.
This witness will be ripped to shreds by O’Mara. She claims she heard three shots or “pops”. Z’s gun was fired only once. She’s imagining things.
I can see why she’s not married. Whatta an idiot.
On the stand it’s a boys voice.
When she called 911 it was a mans voice.
Oh please make her stop.
Jeez....she needs to get out more...
Seriously unstable. Needs to be slapped in the face and told to snap out of it!
Notice how high pitched her voice got during this ‘emotional’ playback?
UNC, you are not really that naive.
Perfect witness for the state. She is no doubt anti-gun too.
She’s definitely a liberal. No conservative could or would sound that hysterical. And her 911 call just goes on....and on....and on.....
I wonder what meds she’s on.
did she just lament on the call that she doesn’t have a gun? as if she wishes she did?
Whoever the 911 operator is deserves an award or a psychiatric diploma.
Get her off the phone —
She’s going to completely fall apart and go into a coma by the end of the night.
Surprised he did not tell her to take her meds. Probably the ones she is on for why she is probably on disability.
Send an ambulance for her — take her to the hospital
She acts like she got shot by one of the three pop noises.
LOL...Operator: “I don’t know if you have any pre-existing medical conditions....”
She completely, utterly DOES NOT listen to what people are saying to her. Proof that she is living in her own mind and facts do not enter it.
Talk about “abuse of 911”! lol
I think her hysterical and over-emotional blathering call recording will only work to help the defense. And that call is still being played. Good grief.
Academy award time.
