The state rested it’s case yesterday with a wimper. The Medical Examiner, Mr. Bao gave conflicting and confusing testimony about Trayvon Martin’s autopsy. He told the court that he has no memory of the autopsy but that no one knew more about the autopsy than he did. The day started with the testimony of Sybrina Fulton taking the stand. I was very surprised, knowing she has a PR consultant working with her that she came across as angry as she did rather than coming across emotional from hearing her son screaming.
What a stroke of luck that the defense was able to bring Gladys Zimmerman to the stand at the end of the day which book-ended the testimony of both mothers. Gladys was extremely credible and dignified. George got emotional watching his Uncle testify and the passion and conviction of Uncle Jorge Meza brought out an emotional response in me as well. All of my family and most of my co-workers found Uncle Jorge to be credible. I heard Bill Shaeffer on WFTV say he personally knows Jorge and spoke of his reputation as a deputy officer in Orange County to be excellent. A stronger advocate, George could not have found.
A reporter from Channel 10 news overheard that Crump’s deposition is set for 2pm tomorrow. I also read that Steve Brenton, the FDLE employee, who did a report on Trayvon’s phone was going to be deposed again this weekend.
I’m looking forward to George Zimmerman’s story being told in court this week. I’m certain we will have a verdict acquitting George in the very near future.
