Witness: Trayvon Called George Zimmerman A ‘Creepy-A**,’ ‘White, Kill-My-Neighbors Cracker’
Mediaite ^ | June 26, 2013 | Tommy Christopher

Posted on 06/26/2013 7:40:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

On the third day of testimony in the George Zimmerman murder trial, the prosecution called what could be the most pivotal witness of all: Rachel Jeantel, the friend who was on the phone with 17 year-old Trayvon Martin until moments before Zimmerman shot and killed him. In the early part of her testimony, Jeantel described her conversation with Trayvon, in which he notices a man looking at him, a man Jeantel says Martin described as a “creepy, white, kill-my-neighbors cracker,” and a “creepy-ass cracker,” to which she joked that he “might be a rapist.”

The credibility of Jeantel’s testimony is crucial, because it establishes George Zimmerman as the aggressor, and contradicts the defense’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman did not pursue Trayvon Martin after the police dispatcher instructed him that they didn’t need him to do that. The phone call also represents a two-minute overlap between the time Zimmerman hung up woth the dispatcher, and when he made contact with Trayvon Martin.

The prosecution asked Rachel Jeantel what Trayvon Martin was complaining to her about on the phone, as he walked home.

“That a man just kept watching him,” she replied.

After the judge overruled a defense objection, the prosecutor continued, “Did you say anything back to him or did he say anything back to you?”

“Yes,” Jeantel replied. “I asked him how the man looked like. He just told me the man — the man looked creepy.”(continued)

Yeah, if someone looks creepy and stares at you, sucker punch them and attempt to kill them by bashing their head against concrete.

Lawyer commenting on Greta just now said this was the worst witness in decades of practice and really hurt the prosecutions case.

Indeed. Trayvon also referred to George as the “n***** behind me” although this article doesn’t mention that.

She is a gold mine for the defense. The more she talks, the worse the prosecutor looks.

Of course I expect some argument from the prosecution that one cannot usually find witnesses to crime in a church pew but he has little chance of redeeming her testimony after this disgrace. I wonder if he will even rebut the defense which would open her up to further questions by West further sinking this sham into the pits of malpractice.

The entire media has disregarded the two time mention of “nigga”. Fox bleeped it out and defined the unknown bleep as just a slang term. So there you go, all Paula Deen needed to say was that she had at some point in time used a slang word. We are getting dumber every day as this nation is obsessed with race.

People, I’m all about the facts. I have not prejudged Zimmerman and concluded him to be a murder nor have I annointed him as a victim of the racial mob led by Jessee Jackson.

The facts go where they go with me.

It is obviously clear that at some point Trayvon started beating on Zimmerman. The only crucial question in this trial, the question that answers everything is: Was Trayvon justified in beating on Zimmerman? If the answer is, “Yes,” then Zimmerman is indeed guilty of homicide. If the answer is “No,” then Zimmerman was simply defending his life with deadly violence...justifiable homicide.

I have heard nothing definitive to answer this critical question as of yet....and either have any of you.

Let’s all take a deep breath and deal with the facts as they emerge. Accounts in the media are not facts!!!!

Let’s not be like the global warming crowd and jump to some preordained conclusion.

You are incorrect, imo.

Under FL law, GZ could have actually started the fight and still legally shoot TM after trying to disengage from TM’s attempts to kill him by bashing his head on the cement.

BUT imagine someone testifying that Zimmerman twice referred to Trayvon as a nigga. It would be repeated on every TV st, every radio st, and every newspaper, 247 until zimmerman’s last breath. That is what the white race of this nation is facing and they better wake up and stop appeasing those who refuse to get beyond the color of their own skin.

The "preordained conclusion" in simplest terms, since you appear to know nothing whatsoever about the law in Florida, is that George Zimmerman is innocent until the prosecution proves otherwise. Zimmerman has no burden of proof and does not have to "prove" that the assault and battery (which you actually stipulate yourself occurred) was unjustified.

Buy a clue.

Since you raised the question “Was Trayvon justified in beating on Zimmerman?” may I ask under which conditions would Martin have had the legal right to attack Zimmerman?

Specifics would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Ironic that Trayvon would call Zimmerman a "nigga".

He sure as $hit wouldn't call a white person that.

From how he appears, Zimmerman looks at least Hispanic. I wouldn't think of him as "white" under any circumstance.

Maybe Trayvon had some "racial issues"? Did he think George was black?

This witness is such a goofball, that she will set Z free.

The defense should take her apart inch by inch.

The defenses’ response was classic “I’m sorry, cvould you repeat that, I was distracted” You could almsot see the blood boil in her at that point

The first time she said “Are you even listening” I woudl have said “Whether I am or not is none of your busienss, you busienss is to answer the quesitons asked of you, and nothign else- I’ll ask the quesitons, you just provide the answers- thanks”

Were Nelson an unbiased judge, and were this not a Kangaroo-Court-Gone-Nutz, the fat broad with attitude would be facing the Defense attorney when requested or would be in jail on contempt charges. Once in court as a witness, IIRC, one leaves without Court permission at risk of contempt charges.

However, this is Judge Nelson presiding over the beatification of St. Martin of the Purple Drank ......

I must quibble about one phrase in your post. You state that the “preordained conclusion” is that George Zimmerman is innocent under Florida law.
While in most cases this is correct, but I seriously believe that in this case, the preordained conclusion is that George Zimmerman is not only guilty but must be sentenced to prison so he can be killed in order to appease the civil rights industry.

Anyone who watched this knows that West is going to slam her like a midget wrestler tomorrow. He took his time, was very nice and calm, and just let her get pissed off. She’s going to come in there tomorrow with an attitude, and he’s going to womp her.

I am not sure it is hearsay. She is testifying to what she heard and what she said. That is direct testimony as to her experience.

I could be wrong. I am not a lawyer or judge. I have self respect and a conscience.

Jeantel owned West. He was meek as all get out. Maybe he didn’t want to push in fear of making the jury even more sympathetic to her. Or anger the judge, who has already shown she doesn’t like West. But you could tell by Jeantel’s body language and her arrogant attitude toward West that she knew she owned him. West is going to have a very tough time with her tomorrow.

Normally, it would be hearsay, because she is saying what she heard someone else say, and the court would require that the person who SAID it be called, because that person would be a more direct witness to the statement. She could then be called to verify the statement, or to discredit it.

But since he cannot be called, she can directly testify to what was said.

She would be direct if she was asked what else she HEARD on the phone call, like if she heard Zimmerman yell something — again because the more direct witness, Martin, is dead.
