Trayvon Martin Shooting “DeeDee” Reveals The False “Truths”[Martin lawyers lying about girlfriend]
ConservativeTreeHouse ^ | April 21, 2012 | sundancecracker

Posted on 04/21/2012 6:10:36 AM PDT by kevcol

A couple of things are certain:

DeeDee and Trayvon did not talk for 400 minutes on 2/26 the day he was shot.

DeeDee did not go to the hospital on 3/2 and 3/3 and that was NOT the reason for not attending the viewing or memorial.

DeeDee and Trayvon were not Boyfriend/Girlfriend. They were close, platonic best friends.

DeeDee was not devastated, destroyed, or an emotional wreck. She was sad that her best friend was shot. She notified others, including her cousin who is also a prolific tweeter, but did not know immediately who Trayvon was.

DeeDee did not miss school.

DeeDee did not contact anyone because there was no reason to.

Did DeeDee actually hear anything that night? Who knows. However, the mere fact that Benjamin Crump can be proven to have falsely constructed more than 80% of his press conference in order to plant false misleading misinformation in the media sure brings the entire narrative into question.

-snip-

The reason the prosecutor Angela Corey didn’t go to the Grand Jury was because she would have either had to introduce DeeDee’s testimony, or avoid it completely. If she included the lies and the manipulations DeeDee would have been forced to bear witness at trial and O’Mara would be able to pull the lies out. That is why no Grand Jury was used. They wanted the media evidence of “DeeDee” to exist, but not the legal evidence,

I disagree. I think Zimmerman will be acquitted and everyone involved in this case knows it. They are simply trying to string out the case until the political content evaporates and then they will drop charges at 11:59 PM on a Friday night.

Most likely scenario is that the investigation will be strung out into 2013 and then simply dropped. Perhaps as people are watching a hurricane come in.

The politicians who have been hyping this case have suddenly become very quiet and I think they have been told that this dog will not hunt.


I agree.

“2. If the powder traces show that the muzzle blast was very close, Martin was on top of him.”

The judge asked the investigator yesterday, the distance of the shot and he said ‘very close proximity’, gun powder residue on the sweatshirt.

I do hope that it will be legal to double tap any rioters that threaten any innocents. A shoot on sight against looters
would also be a good teaching opportunity.

Wow.

By the time this is done the Martin family’s lawyer should be sitting in jail and George Zimmerman should be a rich man.

Unbelievable!

If he is acquitted or the charges are dropped, he will face endless lawsuits

If it goes to trial, and Zimmerman is acquitted, then perhaps. But if the charges are dropped, Florida law grants him immunity.

The article refers to getting him arrested as "first base" for Crump. It establishes probable cause, enabling lawsuits. "Second base" is the hearing on whether the case should go forward. If Zimmerman wins that, Crump loses.

I doubt that the author has correctly identified DeeDee. I've found a twitter account that expresses lamentation over Trayvon on a daily basis, and includes a remark about seeing Trayvon's phone number on her phone.

I'm not sure the account I am looking at is DeeDee, but it comes much closer to a match than the one Conservative Treehouse has adopted.

No, that was another fabrication from ABC. If you read the whole blog page that’s the source for this post you’ll see that ABC is in deep, deep doo-doo.

Somebody should do a voice analysis of the ABC “interview” with “Dee Dee”, to see if the voice before the break to the ABC reporter is the same voice as the one after the break (the voice which claims she heard the confrontation).

And somebody should check out what ABC has to say about the 911 call from Trayvon’s phone on March 2nd when Martin was dead but 16 days before Trayvon’s dad says he was able to get into TRayvon’s phone.

I’d also like to know why Trayvon’s dad had TRayvon’s phone if it was on TRayvon’s person when he died. Whether it was found by the police or by the coroner, I would have thought it would be submitted as evidence in the case.

Way, way too many discrepancies, and it sure seems like ABC is in the middle of them all. I wonder if even one percent of what ABC has presented is actually genuine.

At the beginning of the article, the author recommends reading updates 9 and 10-pt1. It really is essential to understanding the whole story.

I read either today or yesterday (sorry I don’t have source) that gunpowder burns were visible on Martin’s sweatshirt/hoodie whatever it’s called.

I’ve been reading on FR and another site.

If I can find the source I’ll post it to you.

If you read everything on that blog page it makes sense that the whole thing was a financial scam from the very beginning, although the financial aspect of it most likely came from the 2 filthy attorneys for the Martin family. Seems like maybe they have a history of this kind of scam.

Hopefully by the end of all this they will be sitting in jail...

Thing is, it sure looks like the prosecution is playing along with their financial scheme. The blog author points out that the affidavit of probable cause only cites the “friend” as saying that Trayvon said he was being followed - which is the only part from ABC’s “interview” which was in a girl’s voice, according to the blog author. If there really were 2 different voices in that interview and Crump and ABC conspired to make it appear that all of it was from the girl, it also looks like the prosecutor knew not to include in the affidavit the other stuff that was really from the other voice.

This whole thing stinks to high heaven.

SHe must be a crack ho or something, because how can these people pull so many lawyers and resources out of their hat like this, in support of the prosecution, is unbelievable.

I go see lawyers for my personal business and they drag feet, they never like my views and they constantly betray me and refuse my proposals for getting additional funds.

So, this is manipulated horse crap from day 1.

Given the liberalness of Romney and the Zimmerman case, I see a plot whereby the GOP-E is going to be ambushed.

Romney is going to be portrayed as pro-slavery white GOP conservative CEO, while anybody with a gun will be attacked by Romney in order to placate the perception that whoever has a gun in self defense must be a white retard of embarassment.

Romney is going to be a disaster. This is all being shaped to be that even if a black kills in self defense another black, Romney and the liberals will be placated into calling the one with the gun as white racist.

And this is the same people who want to keep disarmed black people on a plantation treatment who will call us racist and having caused slavery.

This is a really sick convoluted rhetoric, but it is amazing no one has yet caught on it.

Given how antigun Romney has been, I frankly do not think he will win, because liberals will keep screaming to unions that he is antigun and they will scream to jews and blacks he is an evil CEO antisemite converting jews after they die etc.. watch it.

Romney is DOA as a candidate and pretty much well planned as a Mormon to bring distate to Jews, blacks, conservatives and blue dog gun totting Union democrates who can vote Republican and display pride on 911 commemoratives. Watch it.

911 is being forgotten over all this crap to the benefit of the terrorist in office.

Something I just realized. Didn’t the prosecutor admit yesterday that they have no evidence to support the claim that Zimmerman confronted Martin? If so, then they are specifically NOT using what was in the latter part of the Dee-Dee “interview” where it was claimed that Trayvon had apparently been pushed.

If that was really part of the interview with the girl, then why would they not use that, just like they used her claims about Trayvon being scared?

What I don’t understand is how the prosecutors - who are supposed to tell the WHOLE truth and disclose any evidence that refutes their claims - can get away with not saying that the 911 caller said it was Zimmerman calling for help, or a myriad of other pieces of evidence that strongly refute the claims in that probable cause affidavit.

This whole thing just really, REALLY stinks.

I know the MSM claims she has a story, but the point was the defense only gets to confront what they say in the trial not in the grand jury. Even if it’s in the grand jury testimony it can’t be brought up unless the person is called at the trial and then it’s tough for the defense to get it see: State v.

I agree with you, but I would further define “black culture” to be “black trash culture”. There are trash cultures in every race. Of course it is not racist to recognize the trashy elements of any race. To do otherwise would be to walk around with blinders on and get yourself into trouble.

People need to know this is what it’s all really about, for the lawyers and possibly the Martin family. I had no idea that an arrest is the start of the civil lawsuits. That makes the standards for probable cause CRITICAL for the government to protect individuals from legal financial harassment.

Which is important also because the Islamists intend to break our wills by financially harassing people through the courts. So the standards of evidence for probable cause MUST be upheld.

My theory on that is that the 911 call is the Sanford Police calling themselves in order to discover the phone's number. If the phone was passworded, the police would not have been able to examine its directory entries and logs without first breaking the password. However, passworded phones can be used to call 911 without entering the password. If I'm correct, it's odd that it took them until 2 March to get around to it.

Now what do Sharpton Jackson and the Panthers use to rally their “gangsta”? They got the arrest they got the charge now they have no hearing until May 29 and no chance whatever that the case will go to trial before the election. When this goes on the calendar for jury selection next January let's see how many gangstas show up at the courthouse.

I wondered about that too. The cops were still in the area into the wee hours of the morning. How did everybody in Tracy’s household not notice anything? Especially since they didn’t know where Trayvon was and he had been brought to Sanford specifically because he needed to get his attitude re-adjusted after being suspended from school over various things. A 2-week suspension from school is enough to make a kid flunk all his classes; this wasn’t peanuts. None of the reports are clear as to exactly what he was suspended for all 3 times; the Martin family lawyer claimed there were 3 suspensions, one for graffiti and one for drugs but nobody would say what the 3rd was for, or when it was.

-- How did you find these tweets? --

I was searching for tweets by @InsanelyDopeex3, based on a post somewhere that said @InsanelyDopeex3 was DeeDee. I ran into a different handle and just followed the lead.

-- IF it's someone who knew Trayvon, is it necessarily "DeeDee"? --

No, it's not. Which is why I've kept my findings to myself, more or less. My comment was just that the handle I'm reading has more signs of attachment to Trayvon (not as BFF/mate, just lots of sadness, fond memories, etc.) than Daisha Mitchell as @iAdoree_Dee or Daisha Brianne as @x_FashionObsess.

These are some remarks I culled out of many pages of @_LoveThyLondon tweets, when I looked back on the 16th of April.

To a lot of people "Trayvon Martin" is just a case, but to me he was my friend, he was apart of my daily life . 24 Mar

First I have seen on that.

Blowback perhaps? No idea what type of weapon Zimmerman had, but if you shoot someone/something from close enough you can often get residue back scattering.

Racism is what got BO in office- specifically White Guilt. This is all they have and all that is keeping him and Holder out of jail.

KelTec 9mm. One round fired, next round did not chamber, so slide didn't cycle all the way.

Martin's clothing and flesh were burned; Zimmerman's clothing had powder residue.

-- but if you shoot someone/something from close enough you can often get residue back scattering. --

Yep. I figure the point was that Zimmerman hadn't fired on a 3 or 4 foot distant target, and my impression is he did not have his arm extended. All the forensic evidence is consistent with a close quarters shot.

That’s a statement to the DA by DeeDee. There never has been a grand jury. If the DA were really really incompetent it could be something the DA saw in the media or got third hand from the Martin’s attorney. That’s not likely.

Attorneys for Martin’s family said it wasn’t until weeks later, when Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father, was looking through the teen’s cell phone bill that he noticed the timing of the last call. The family and their attorneys then contacted Trayvon’s girlfriend and heard her account of the night. Lawyer Benjamin Crump, who represents the family, recorded an interview with the girl and provided it with Martin’s cell phone records to federal authorities, who by then had joined the investigation.

UPDATE: Tallahassee, FL - March 20, 2012

http://www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/Students_to_Rally_for_Justice_for_Trayvon_Martin_in_Tallahassee_143275066.html

Federal and local prosecutors are launching parallel investigations into the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a neighborhood watch captain as outrage over the case grows.

(snip)

According to the source close to the investigation, authorities have a subpoena for Martin’s phone records and are waiting to electronically unlock the phone. Neither the teenage girl nor her parents came forward to offer details to police in the three weeks since the shooting, despite a public plea for information, the source said.

Several investigators don’t believe Zimmerman turned back to his car but instead tried to confront or even detain Martin until police arrived, the source said, but police don’t have any evidence to prove that. Police conducted a voice stress test two days after the shooting on Zimmerman, which he passed, the source said. Another one is expected to be conducted on him soon, the source said.

Zimmerman is staying at a secure location and has been in daily contact with authorities, the source said.

Crump said he plans to turn over information about the call to federal investigators who are looking into the case.

The recollections by the girlfriend about her conversation with Trayvon and Trayvon's mother's allegation that it was Trayvon screaming for help seemed to be enough evidence for Corey in the affidavit.

Trayvon's father reported that the police told him what Zimmerman had said, namely that Trayvon came up to him twice, once when he was in his vehicle and again after he had left the vehicle. Trayvon's father said he thought Zimmerman was lying.

What more evidence do you need? Zimmerman is obviously guilty. You only need two witnesses to prove treason, and here we have three.

Thanks - Not one I am familiar with (only handgun I have ever had was an issue Browning 9 mm), but yeah, sounds like a combination of residue blowback from a target closer than 3 feet away and the partially open slide.

The L96 or AS50 are more my tools of choice, though they are significantly more difficult to carry in your waistband!

I don’t know how the other blog arrived at the person they have for Deedee, but if that really is Deedee then what you’ve got here underlines how odd it is that she was so aloof compared to this other friend (who is not Trayvon’s GF) - especially if she was his GF and was speaking to him when the confrontation began.

I just showed the picture to my kids who said at first “three” and then said, “There are two white guys in that picture.”

Here’s the letter from the Sanford City Manager, dated 3/23/12.

I am from Africa and I am whiter than that one dude... hmm... Interesting take. So, now, if Herman Cain was to shoot in self defense a black guy, he would be white? THis is indeed quite a media/legal precedent.

My poll would be to demonstrate the range of people's perceptions of others as they are based on their own race or ethnicity. Of course, Rev. Jeremiah Wright is like totally white compared to Trayvon or Jesse Jackson.

“When we got to the cries for help, that was when Sybrina burst into tears,” recalled Natalie Jackson. “She said, ‘That’s Trayvon. That’s our son.’ She ran out of the room crying.” “The mayor himself started to cry,” Jackson said. “Everybody in the room was in tears.”

These people, Sharpton, Jackson, Crump, etc, ALL of them, have become what the men in the white hoods were. No more need be said of them.

I'm not going to dismiss the possibility that @_LoveThyLondon is not DeeDee on that basis. There has been plenty of speculation that DeeDee was a close friend, but not "girlfriend" the way Crump states the relationship between DeeDee and Trayvon.

>if you shoot someone/something from close enough you can often get residue back scattering.

I can vouch for that. Shooting two .44 rounds through a tempered glass storm door from a few inches away left me with
the taste of H110 in my mouth for the whole week I was in jail.
