George Zimmerman’s family gets banned from the courtroom at the request of the State of Florida. How much more would you like to kick this family around?
Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton were allowed to stay in the courtroom, in spite of being potential witnesses as a representative for Trayvon Martin. If I heard the judge right when also banning Ben Crump that either legal reps. were in the courtroom or the parents were.
When Don West played the 911 tape, Ackbarsays, who was in the courtroom, told us that Sybrina made quite a show on leaving the courtroom. That won’t be lost on the jury. In watching Anderson Cooper’s special at 10pm last night, he says the legal analysts thought this may give an unfair advantage to the State.
If this kind of theatrics continue, I’d urge the defense to ask the judge to allow Daryl Parks and Natalie Jackson to sit in on behalf of the family so they won’t be so disruptive to the proceedings when some understandably tough things are dealt with by the court.
Mr. West! I wish I could give you a long warm hug. You have worked your butt off on this case and I heard you have given a year of your life to this case. Your work on the last minute “experts” submitted by the state has resulted in a massive savings of people’s time and GZ’s money. I’m so sorry your joke fell so flat. It was a risk and let’s face it those who do things will eventually make a mistake. Those who do nothing, never make mistakes; if you can call doing nothing not a mistake.
I outed a private email, Mr. O’Mara forgot to hand in a passport, Robert Zimmerman Jr. tweeted an unclear message, Shellie & George weren’t forthcoming when they needed to be. Mistakes happen. Those of us supporting George so appreciate your time, effort and sacrifice. Let’s shake it off and focus on bringing the truth to the light. I suspect most people now see what the truth is. I heard and read lots yesterday; this is the defense’s case to lose. The truth is seen and known. Mr. Crump’s lies are known or suspected.
While Mr. Guy was more dramatic and talked about hearts and stomach, let’s face it, the only thing on the state’s side has been emotion. That ends now. Mr. West’s presentation was the facts of the case and if the jury only gets to see the State’s case and George Zimmerman does not need to take the stand, you planted a number of seeds in the heads of the jurors. I was getting feedback that copious amount of notes were being taken by jurors and at least two were on the edge of the seats, leaning forward and writing their notes. They will look back to those with each witness you named and see if you were right. They will find you gave an accurate portrayal of the facts.
I summed up the day this way on twitter:
For newcomers, please know that racist remarks will be trashed. If you are presenting yourself as a George Zimmerman supporter, please keep in mind this man is in a fight for his life. Conduct yourself in a way that won’t bring heartache and/or embarrassment to the Zimmerman family.
