Zimmerman Update Exclusive—Mid-Day 4—West’s Cross-Examination of Rachel Jeantel (Can't read!)
Legal Insurrection ^ | June 27, 2013 | Andrew Branca

Posted on 06/27/2013 4:26:03 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Hey folks,

We’re trying something different for today’s mid-day update. Rather than write a bunch of text, I’ve imbedded below some of the more key tweets I’ve made over the course of the morning. (This has the benefit of giving me a few minutes to each some lunch.)

Hopefully, the tweets below will give you a sense for how West’s cross-examination of Rachel Jeantel has gone so far this morning. We’ll have a detailed analysis, of course, in this evening’s end-of-day wrap-up post.

Enjoy, and be sure to check back in to our live coverage page at 1:14PM (EST), here:

If you watched two hours of her effort today....you ended up identifying her with an attitude problem. If I was on the jury...I’d give her a zero, and forget about her words entirely.

She can't read cursive. That is sort of eyebrow-raising ain't it?

Folks, you are looking at the future of our country because cursive is not in the Common Core.

Its all about keeping the slaves illiterate.

Slaves who read can learn and develop ideas and it often leads to independence.

Honestly, as a Gen Yer, I can’t read cursive. They started teaching it in 4th grade which I had to learn for “the rest of my life”, and they gave up by 6th grade. Typing made it obsolete.

However, I still can read my own cursive (what little I do write), so this is fabricated evidence.

An impartial judge would throw it all out, but this is nothing but impartial.

“In a painfully embarrassing moment, Jeantel was forced to admit that she did not write a letter that was sent to Martin’s mother describing what she allegedly heard on a phone call with Martin moments before he was shot. It came when West asked her to read the letter aloud in court.”

http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimmerman-witness-cantt-read-letter-wrote-shooting/story?id=19504826#.UczNaHYo5jo

The video tape at the site above suggests that she previously admitted that she wrote the contents of the letter but that someone else then wrote a cleaner looking copy for her. I had not heard that detail before a few minutes ago.

One of the social media (twitter things) said on the streaming site that “cracker” wasn’t racist because Trayvon said it about a “Hispanic”, so it can’t be racist.

Hey, cut her some slack. With welfare & foodstamps being paid on EBT cards now, she won’t have any checks requiring a cursive signature on the back. So she’s received the exact level of education that the progressive leftists think is appropriate for her. Hell, they’ll probably give her an Obamaphone also if she doesn’t already have one.

Barney Frank is a #CreepyAssCracker but I think that has a whole other set of rules.

Cursive no longer belongs in the common core.
To save time, neither do cuniform, hieroglyphics, or calligraphy.

Cursive belongs in the history department curriculum. It is needed to read historical documents.

Cursive is no longer acceptable for most business use today. Even for authorisation identification biometrics is starting to take over. Fifteen years from now a signiture will likely not be enough on a will or a mortgage.

Time marches on.

Like the constitution.

It should be taught to every school child and diplomas denied until they're literate in it.

Been watching a little of the trial on HLN. All the legal “experts” seem to be in agreement that this incoherent, no-respect poster child for public schooling has been a disaster for the prosecution. Except of course any black woman they ask, and they of course will tell you how how smart she is and how her testimony is a prosecutor’s dream. The men weigh in and are ridiculed for telling the truth about this female gangbanger with an attitute.

Cursive probably hasn't really been needed, since the invention of the ball-point pen. It was needed in the days of quill pens, because you wouldn't have to lift and reposition the nib so often. On that basis alone, I suppose you're right. It doesn't seem right somehow though -- yet another skill I spent a lot of time acquiring, has become obsolete.

Origin of the term “Cracker:”

When farmers from Georgia and S. Carolina emigrated to Florida, they moved their herds of cattle with whips, cracking them to control the herds. Thus, they were “Crackers.”

Some of my ancestors were Florida Crackers and I’m proud of them.

As a teacher, I observed that the fine motor control learned in cursive (and calligraphy) seemed to help develop critical thinking skills. Of course, if one doesn’t want the students to develop critical thinking skills, one would not want them to take the time to learn cursive, or even how to block print neatly.

The legal analyst for Channel 9 in Orlando (whose feed I was watching) said...or seemed to be saying...that the defense had the budding rocket scientist on the ropes for some time but she wound up being an overall plus for the state.He also said something about a few questions the defense put to the woman just after our semi literate pal...that the defense asked her several questions regarding GZ's general demeanor that opened the door for the state to introduce his "violent" past to the jury.He described it as a massive ("huge" was his exact word,IIRC) error by the defense.

I sincerely hope that Saint Trayvon (who,I learned today was 6' 2" when he died) becomes well known to the jury.
