THE WITNESS ZIMMERMAN PROSECUTORS DIDN'T CALL
WND ^ | July 6, 2013 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 07/06/2013 8:46:29 PM PDT by Uncle Chip

The most unexpected result to come out of day 9 of the State of Florida v. George Zimmerman, the day the State finished presenting its witnesses, was not Trayvon Martin’s mother’s claim that it was her son’s screams heard on the 911 call. That was to be expected.

The rambling, occasionally absurd testimony of medical examiner Shiping Bao did not surprise, either. Nor did defense attorney Mark O’Mara’s cogent appeal that Zimmerman be acquitted given the State’s failure to make a convincing case of his guilt.

What was most intriguing, at least from the perspective of how the media corrupted this case, was the State’s failure to call Witness No. 5, Mary Cutcher, the most visible and outspoken of all the eyewitnesses.

The State did call her roommate, a blonde Colombian named Selma Mora. As Mora admitted, she and Cutcher did not see anything until after the shot was fired. When Mora did look out, she saw Zimmerman on top of Martin.

This revelation may have fired up the uninformed, but it only confirmed what Zimmerman told the Sanford PD that first night about the sequence of events.

“At this point,” Zimmerman said about the moment after the shot was fired, “I slid out from underneath him and got on top of the suspect holding his hands away from his body.”

Zimmerman never said otherwise. What made Mora’s testimony worth discussing is not what she said, but that the State chose her to say it. The prosecution did not call Cutcher.

In the 6-week-long hysteria between Martin’s shooting and Zimmerman’s arrest, Cutcher was everywhere. It was she who floated the theme that the police were ignoring those eyewitnesses whose testimony challenged Zimmerman’s innocence..................

If the media took Cutcher seriously, the State could not afford to. Prosecutors don’t even have to acknowledge her absence, and the defense is not allowed to.

They killed him off by stipulation just before he was to appear.

why not get the equivalent of Trayvon’s testimony from 0bama. After all, if Trayvon had a father, he would look like 0bama.

They can but probably won't because she adds nothing as she is such a dimwit.

I'm sure she had her hair and nails done and her special outfit picked out for her big appearance and is fuming mad that, once again, she's been dissed and this time by those who she thought needed her ever-changing story.

Did you comprehend the article? She would be a hostile witness.

Why would the defense want to break into jail?

Why is the “Get Off, Get Off” part not subornation of perjury???

She says the phone shut off and then after Bernie’s perpetual prompting she comes up with a little “Get Off, Get Off” AFTER the phone shut off.

I guess the prostitution was afraid the roommate would claim to have seen everything.

why/can’t the defense call an obvious eye witness? seems like justice won’t be done if you can’t call an eyewitness.

Quick question...can the defense call Poppa Martin and ask him if he recognized the screams.

Why do that? He’ll say Trayvon, then they’ll have to call the cops to say he’s changed his story, then they’ll all yell “liar” at each other, and nothing will be accomplished. Calling him doesn’t accomplish anything.

I just think it would continue to establish the pattern...that he initially didn’t id the voice...but now can....just like Trayvon’s brother...and just like the me can now suddenly ma ke more conclusions about the case.

I understand its risky. The cop who played the tape for him is Serino, a prosecution witness. So if Poppa Martin calls him a liar...is all of his testimony suspect?

Bottom line, the prosecution didn’t want to call him...which makes me believe he would hurt them more than help.

When Zimmerman is acquitted, the feral "Gibsmedats" will riot
and murder the first white people they see.

Be aware of your surroundings when the verdict is announced.

Zimmerman innocent - riots feral gibsmedats

There are numerous witnesses the state didn’t call that would be helpful to the defense, including the former Sanford Chief of police Bill Lee and special prosecutor Angela Corey’s lead investigator Dale Gilbreath, both of whom have stated there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Zimmerman with murder.

I might be wrong, but didn’t Serino already testify that Tracey denied that the screams were those of his son???

If he hasn’t then he will be recalled this week and state that to the court and Tracey and the prosecutors will have to sit there and take it because they are the ones who left Tracey off the stand in their case and did so for fear that he will get torn apart.

NOPE -- a guilty verdict would strengthen their hand and empower the ferals who listen to him that racism is alive and well in America and the Zimmerman verdict proves it.

She was the scheme team’s first and most visible witness that got the whole lynch mob riled up with her claims of a “child crying for help” and in the end the state didn’t find her believable enough to parade her a** on the witless stand in their case.

The defense is not allowed to do anything that will help clear Zimmerman. Just as the Teri Schivo case was a legal murder, the Zimmerman case is a legal lynching.

I suppose, overall, that what upsets me the most about is that I voted for both Scott and Pam Bondi. A mistake I won't make again.

Zimmerman? Zimmerman is being used by the criminal element to intimidate law abiding citizens from defending themselves when attacked and other issues too numerous to detail. But the facts seem to be that the same people he played footsie with during his adult life, when politically expedient for their cause[s] turned against him. To simplify it, the tiger he was riding turned and ate him.

Thanks for the link. I had not seen her testimony.

There was obviously no hesitation in her answers to questions that would cause a normal person to have to think to answer. She was very well coached prior to the testimony.

The prosecution used the child imagery to try to suggest that Travon was a child. He was 17 and very large for his age.

Other than that imagery I saw nothing that damaged Zimmerman’s case.

Where are the Hispanics showing support for Zimmerman? I would suspect there are many who are as adamant in supporting him as there are blacks supporting Martin. This is not a black/white thing, it is a black/brown one.

What the article said is: "Prosecutors don’t even have to acknowledge her absence, and the defense is not allowed to."

In other words, the prosecution need not explain why they did not call her. The defense is not allowed to talk about what witnesses the prosecution did not call.

The defense could call her, but why would they? She, by her own account, witnessed nothing.
