Yes. Just look at her picture and watch 10 minutes of her ‘testimony’ on the stand.
Under different circumstances, one could envision her standing atop a Burger King counter throwing a hissy-fit because they didn’t put ketchup on her burger.
How does this ‘citizen’ support herself? Does she live with her mother? Is she in school? Does she have a job? Does she get a ‘check?’
According to her, she lied to Martin’s mother about her age (19 vs 16). Why is that? Because she didn’t want get into some adult/minor thing? Or, is she living with her momma and momma purports she is 16 for some other reason?
Does her momma work? Is her momma on public assistance? Does she claim dependents?
Yeah, these are all pretty biased sounding questions and may likely be construed as ‘racist’ in some people’s eyes, but the very LACK of any supporting information at all about what this woman does, how she supports herself, what her current existence/subsistence is other than she is/was “Trayvon’s Girlfriend - now only Friend” tells me there is information out there about her the media and the political apparatchiks don’t want us to know about her.
They're gender flexing alright. Genuflecting, too.
I just hope that crazy assed crackers lean something from all of this.
I’m for a taxes paid test. If you don’t own land or net pay on Federal Income Taxes, you don’t vote.
Any of those jurors live in Geneva, Chuluota, Oviedo, areas south of downtown Sanford....they will think RJ is a lying idiot. The first two are rural towns...with some old Florida Crackers
Even if she had been present at the scene, the value of this contention would be colored by her demonstrated dishonesty. Since she wasn't present at the scene, rational jurors should treat it as fiction.
Oviedo isn’t. A lot of UCF faculty and staff.
It also would be colored by her race. As it is now.
“We need to bring back the literacy test before we let these people vote”
Or print the ballots in cursive.
There was a thread back when this event all happened that involved a map. All the key points, where Z was, where he parked his truck, where TM came from and where he was living, and where the eyewitnesses were located.
That thread and the evidence laid out cemented for me that Zimmerman is innocent. Yes, he’s a guy watching out for his community, and there have been burglaries. Yes, he was armed. That is all prudent.
If Trayvon had continued to where he was staying, he’d still be alive. Instead, he doubled back to confront Z and was in the process of beating him to death, or so he thought. When Zimmerman’s weapon was exposed due to the beating and thrashing he was taking from Trayvon, Trayvon tried to grab the gun, but Zimmerman got it and fired.
My conclusion: Zimmerman was acting quite appropriately, including calling 911 to keep law enforcement updated. It was Trayvon’s actions that were “creepy” and thug-like. Trayvon caused the confrontation, actually started it by attacking Zimmerman.
Imagine how this would have played out had Trayvon simply had a civil conversation with Zimmerman. Zimmerman could have asked him who what and where, and Trayvon could have explained rationally that he was staying there, just down the block.
The only real problem Mr. Zimmerman has is that he’s already been tried and convicted by the media. If he wins, he loses. If he loses he loses. NBC should be sued out of existence for their part in ruining Zimmerman’s life.
AThank you for this. IF this goes further, it would be the most compelling defense for Z. But let me ask you something.
Do we know anything about Z? I mean we the judge has surpressed the prior conduct of M which paints him clearly as a racist thug, but how about Z? Was he a rational person? Was he quick on the trigger before? Any prior felonies? How many times did he call 911?
"Culture", as in petri dish.
“She knows no better because she, and millions like her, do not know the difference between right and wrong and good and bad. Discernment is foreign to them.”
Interesting she said in testimony she goes to church.
re: “ Instead, he doubled back to confront Z. . .”
This is the key right there. According to Zimmerman’s testimony, he lost sight of Trayvon and was heading back to his vehicle, when Trayvon suddenly appears and confronts him about why he is following him.
Did Jeantel’s testimony contradict this? I thought I read that she said that Trayvon told her he was going to confront Zimmerman?
I just realized that no one has as yet mentioned “Eubonics”
She said "creepy ass-cracker" which is not racial.
In Feral Urban Youth (FUY) speak "creepy" means pervert and "ass-cracker" refers to homosexual sodomy.
That usage also explains her implication that St. Travon might get raped, and his response to "stop playing him."
So exactly what would be wrong with Zimmerman following Martin? Zimmerman was "Neighborhood watch" doing his job. He sees one of the same type of youths who have been robbing homes in his neighborhood. So he follows that youth to see what he is up to, perhaps to see if he does suspicious things like peering in windows and checking out the area. You and I have seen people out on walks in our neighborhoods. We can usually discern whether or not they are just walking or they are "casing the area". I have seen young black guys (who may look like Martin) who I don't recognize as one of our homeowners kids, and I might be curious as to what they are doing. Watching (following), I can soon get a feel if they are up to no good or there for a purpose, like innocently selling magazines for instance.
Of course Zimmerman needed to "follow" Martin, and not jump to any conclusion, but watch to try to discern what he was doing there. If Zimmerman had asked Martin what he was doing there....... should that in itself been an intimidating "confrontation" to Martin. If he was innocent, could he just have replied that he was passing trough on his way home or even just a mumble something like "minding my own business" said politely might have been enough. However jumping on Zimmerman and slamming his head on the pavement and punching his face clearly indicates the fact that Martin is a hoodlum.
When did "neighborhood watching" become "conflict instigation"...... it happens when the hoodlums see themselves as too tough to allow the man to actually watch them.
