Rachel Jeantel: Court Antics and How Martin Profiled Zimmerman
TalkLeft ^ | 6/27/13 | Jeralyn Merritt

Posted on 06/27/2013 3:55:57 PM PDT by BCrago66

Rachel Jeantel was a train wreck as a witness. She did not help the state's case. She exposed the manipulations of Team Crump. She was impeached on a few significant matters (see below the fold.) And she admitted multiple lies. It was cringe-worthy but you couldn't take your eyes off it.

Most strikingly, she made Trayvon Martin out to be the profiler of Zimmerman.

The site is called TalkLeft, and the individuals who post on it generally view matters just as that name implies. But they also pride themselves on getting it right on the law, and the author of this particular post is Jeralyn Merritt, a criminal defense attorney (who started the site.) I've followed this site's coverage of the Zimmerman case (on and off), and the Lefty commenters below the posts generally agree that Florida has a very flimsy case (to put it mildly) against Zimmerman.

It would not matter if she wrote a letter in cursive
which she could not read (hint: she did not write it),
this is an estrogen kangaroo court.

Didn’t the prosecution prep her for testimony?
Isn’t is normal for them to go over the testimony with their witness?
I think it is funny that they said she was the STAR witness, in the case.

But, I could be wrong. I think I was, once.

So far the prosecution is presenting its case. I think by the time the defense rests the estrogen jury will see Zimmerman as the victim here.

For someone who was supposed to be the States best witness, she
sure wasn’t passionate about the death of her boyfriend or friend. She
acted like she did not want to be their and could care less about the
outcome. Good news for the defense.

The advantage of being retired ... plenty of time to waste in front of live streaming.

I must admit ... THIS is much more fascinating than the Clinton impeachment "trial" ..(hrumphh) and the OJ fiasco.

Jeantel was the most amazingly numb person I've ever seen ... functionally numb.

I picked up at the very first when, after being sworn in she said ... so VERY sarcastically, "ohh yeahhh"

If I knew how to capture a video, I'd catch THAT

She cocks her head after "so help you God" and says .. "ohh yeahh"

“...a “Creepy-A*s Cracker” and later, described Zimmerman a few times as “this ni*ga”

How about some consistency. They edit one racial epithet and not the other. Guess they are the same mindset as the girlfriend and believe the term “cracker” is not a racial slur.

To me the million dollar question is-

Since she did not right the letter, who did?

Who told her to say in deposition that she wrote the letter?

I was wrong once too. I was 4 at the time and I never made a mistake again.

If you spoke Jive (see, e.g., the movie Airplane, 1980), you’d know that there are several contexts in which “this ni*ga” simply means “this particular gentleman.”

We have a new royalty in America, and it is black gangstas impressing now women reading People’s mags or other mags on the Queen of England. Of course not all women are like that, and surprizingly many will be fair in juries, even in domestic violence cases. We shall see.

I had an uncle who could read cursive, I forget where he studied it, he was like a genius or something.

I was going to try to write a word in this post, in cursive that he taught me, but as you can see, I couldn’t pull it off.

For the life of me, I know Armenians, and they don’t like JZ. What is wrong with these girls to trade themselves that way.

The case would have never been prosecuted if the RACIST LEFTISTS hadn’t pushed the LIES AND PROPAGANGA. The prosecutor got WIPED OUT today when their witness testified under cross examination that the CRIES SHE HEARD WERE LIFE THREATENING and then the defense showed Zimmermans bloody photos. That took a BIG DUMP on the whole case.

Sadly, the jury, no matter WHAT, will find Zimmerman guilty because they will be AFRAID to do anything else.

saw her saying something, but am not that good at lip-reading, particularly if not in my native mid-west “whitey school speak”.

This trial is so depressing. All I can do is wonder if everything I learned in 7th grade Civics class (back in the late 1950’s) is no longer “relevant” to modern ::America::.

I feel so sad for my grandchildren that they will never learn to write “cursive”, will no longer be able to read cursive, and will live in a world of “now-speak”, texting, and sound-bites, in whatever patois is spoken by someone testifying on our courts of law. They will have no critical thinking skills, will have no way to navigate the “snares” (see lines from hymn below)

We are in big trouble, friends, and I doubt we will be able to get out of it. Maybe it is time that we take a lesson from Jennifer Lauer, and duck down, after running upstairs.

(At least those of us whose hairs have gone grey)

But, deny God, Christ, or, most importantly, The Holy Spirit - never, ever!!!!!

Just line me up and shoot me. Being that I grew up when everyone smoked like a chimney, I wouldn’t refuse that last cigarette, either.

Two lines from my favorite hymn, “Amazing Grace”...

“Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.”

I fear we have more to endure. Stay strong.

I think I dated your wife, years back.

I thought she was Miss Right, then I found out her first name was Always.
