Thats one slow ass pendulum of justice.

DisgustedByMisleadia 35 points ago (edited)

This is the outcome of a book that was recently published. It's called "The Trayvon Hoax".

The author of the book did the investigative journalism ignored by the Misleadia and even the prosecution. Zimmerman's defense couldn't do it, because the prosecution withheld the relevant evidence until the last minute.

Unfortunately, Zimmerman is being represented by Larry Klayman. That doesn't bode well for his success.

I was worried when I saw that too. But damn, read that complaint, and then the book - or at least watch the movie. If even half of that evidence holds up, this could be brutal. That prosecutor had better kiss his Bar Association card - he might not have it for much longer.

It's not a long shot. Read the article.

They fabricated the phone call from the "GF" who wasn't the actual GF.

This is huge and he is going to win.

39
DisgustedByMisleadia 39 points ago (edited)

No, the phone call was real -- cell phone records prove that. The problem is that the person on the other end was likely not the person who testified in the trial.

If you read "The Trayvon Hoax", the author makes a very good case that the person on the call was Diamond Eugene. She apparently convinced her half-sister (Rachael Jeantel) to take her place because Eugene didn't want her other boyfriend to find out she was two-timing him with Martin.

Martin's mother was in contact with Eugene, and had to know about the switch.... because immediately after meeting Jeantel for the first time, she called Eugene.

The author figured out all this by reading through cellphone records (from the court case) and social media posts. He confirmed the half-sister relationship via DNA testing.

21
Deplorable_in_PA 21 points ago

No shit!? That's a bombshell. If Zimmy can prove Rachel Jeantel was not the person taking the call...well, that is just huge. That would mean the state of Florida is involved with fabricating witnesses against him. Too damn bad none of this came out at the trial and they couldn't ask Jeantel under oath if that was really her talking to Trayvon and not Diamond Eugene.

Zimmerman is well justified in suing them

DisgustedByMisleadia 8 points ago (edited)

Zimmerman's defense didn't get the records in time. The prosecution withheld them until the last minute, and they couldn't put it together quickly. It took Gilbert a long time:

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/09/the_trayvon_hoax_unmasking_the_witness_fraud_that_divided_america.html

The defense apparently thought something wasn't right, but never indicated they suspected a complete substitution.

I've read the book. It's eye-opening.

kjj9 2 points ago

The suppression of evidence is what a good prosecutor would call evidence of consciousness of guilt. We can't read minds, but we require (generally) defendants in criminal cases to have known at the time that they were guily for a conviction. We resolve this conflict by looking for signals that the defendant knew that they were doing something wrong, and hiding evidence is at the top of the signal list.

Unfortunately, prosecutors for years have been playing games with the evidence (see the book Licensed to Lie), and judges have been letting them get away with it. They may be able to successfully argue that they weren't hiding evidence, they were just being their normal incompetent selves.

NuclearPony 2 points ago

That makes sense for the investigation in the leadup to a trial but seems like youre just screwing with the defendants rights if you continue to withhold evidence once the trial begins.

How does his sister not wanting to be caught cheating invalidate the prior trial?

17
DisgustedByMisleadia 17 points ago

Her half-sister testified as a factual witness claiming that she was the person on the call.

Since Zimmerman was found not guilty, there's no verdict to overturn. But, if Zimmerman had been found guilty, this would have been grounds for appeal and possibly vacating the verdict completely -- especially if it can be proved the prosecution knew she was a substitute.

Jeantel was was not Trayvon's girlfriend. It was Diamond Eugene, although it looks like she was just stringing him along because she wasn't getting enough attention from her "main squeeze".

Apparently, you didn't listen to the court testimony or read the transcript. Stop listening to the Misleadia, especially when it comes to self-defense cases. They lie to you, intentionally.

The dispatcher asked Zimmerman repeatedly where Martin had gone, and Zimmerman interpreted that as a request to follow Martin.

When the dispatcher realized this, ONLY THEN he told Zimmerman "you don't need to do that". Zimmerman said "OK", hung up, and turned to walk back to his truck.

It was during that return walk that Martin doubled back to attack Zimmerman. Jeantel (the woman allegedly on the phone) basically explained it as "gay panic". But, given the info recently uncovered by the author of "The Trayvon Hoax", this should be taken with a grain of salt: she wasn't actually the person on the phone.

That's what people seem to conveniently "forget". Good ol Trayvon went back to confront Zimmerman after he made it home or was extremely close to being home and could've totally avoided a confrontation. He then decided to go back to Zimmerman and attacked.

kmilt16 14 points ago

With all due respect I disagree. I lived in a condo governed by an HOA and the board had to deal with this issue (they had citizen patrols at the time). According to article/link below, Zimmerman's HOA had (allegedly) endorsed his crimewatch activities.

He (Zimmerman), given the written or verbal authority from the HOA board to walk the property as a citizen patrol did have the right to check on situations he deemed suspicious. He did call the police to report a suspicious person on the grounds before he was bashed in the head.

I actually watched the whole trial live. This entire affair reeked like shit from the get go. The local DA was hot to "Nifong" Zimmerman and the Obama DOJ even got involved setting up an "N-word hotline" for people to call in with evidence of Zimmerman.

My guess is the Obama DOJ wanted to overturn FL stand your ground laws and use Zimmy's case as precedent. And I bet they probably offered Corey a cushy six-figure DOJ job for railroading Zimmerman, add to that the pure racial politics of the case and the cred she would have gotten out of it.

DisgustedByMisleadia 7 points ago

Joel Gilbert (author of "The Trayvon Hoax") actually began with a documentary about Andrew Gillum:

I had originally set out to produce a documentary about the rise of 2018 Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. The more I looked into Gillum’s success, however, the more need I saw to investigate the unanswered questions of the criminal case upon which Gillum built his career.

That criminal case was George Zimmerman.

4
Deplorable_in_PA 4 points ago

I followed the case pretty closely but I missed Gillum's involvement. What was Gillum's part in this whole abortion of a case?

5
DisgustedByMisleadia 5 points ago

He wasn't directly involved in the case, but used it in his campaign to build his support among blacks. Trayvon's mother endorsed Gillum and made frequent appearances at his rallies.

Deplorable_in_PA 7 points ago

Funny enough, Desantis won in part because a surprising spike in support from black women.

9
Deplorable_in_PA 9 points ago

I just read the actual lawsuit. Fascinating reading. Short version is that prosecutors knowingly put up Rachel Jeantel as a witness claiming she was Trayvon's girlfriend and the last person to speak to him. Entire indictment was based off Jeantel's testimony. Problem is, Jeantel was NOT Trayvon's girlfriend and not a witness. But she actually testified in court she was and the prosecution knew this.

If what Zimmy's lawyers claim is true and they can prove it, I would hope and expect a total knockdown dragout m-fer of a lawsuit. This would be a gross violation and example of misconduct on the part of the prosecution.

I have no love for Zimmerman, but this case really had nothing to do with him and Trayvon. It was about pushing a larger agenda.

Far as being a "hero cop" this neighborhood was having issues with "yoofs" breaking into houses and stealing. He wasn't trying to be Rambo, probably just sick of assholes robbing houses where he lived is all.

They probably thought Zimmerman was going up for murder and did it as part of a settlement to avoid being dragged through court and a media circus. Since the neighborhood watch was sanctioned by the HOA they could have been found liable.

2
DisgustedByMisleadia 2 points ago

Getting Zimmerman arrested was the hinge-pin of Crump's strategy to get a big settlement from the HOA. The criminal trial was just icing on the cake.

However, they have continued to profit from the not-guilty verdict with fundraising for a foundation (that employs the family) and books. That's why Zimmerman is suing the publisher, too.

I understand that was his testimony but his injuries were not indicative of the severity of the situation he described. No laceration and one bruise caused by a kid 2/3 his weight and stature. Security guards get hit all the time. It’s the nature of the job. Look, I get - it was wildly controversial and there are so many things wrong with how Zim approached the incident. At the top of that list forgetting he was neighbor watch not neighborhood apprehender of suspicious persons. I come at this from an LE professional perspective in my college days who trained neighborhood watch volunteers. In my view, his actions were reckless and his actions caused a stupid kid his life.

No laceration and one bruise caused by a kid 2/3 his weight and stature.

Pictures are widely available of Zimmerman's injuries:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2f/George_Zimmerman_back_of_head.jpg

Zimmerman's height was shown as 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 m) and his weight at 200 lb (91 kg) on the Sanford Police Department Offense Report for February 26, 2012, the night of the shooting.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Trayvon_Martin#George_Zimmerman

Martin was 5"11 and 158 lbs:

http://www.autopsyfiles.org/reports/Other/martin_trayvon_report.pdf

Look, I get - it was wildly controversial and there are so many things wrong with how Zim approached the incident. At the top of that list forgetting he was neighbor watch not neighborhood apprehender of suspicious persons.

Per court testimony (by the dispatcher), Zimmerman called 911. When the dispatcher repeatedly asked Zimmerman where Martin had gone, he interpreted that as a request to follow Martin.

When the dispatcher realized this, he told Zimmerman "we don't need you to do that". Zimmerman said OK, hung up and was returning to his truck when he was attacked by Martin, who had doubled back to do so.

It was only "wildly controversial" because the Misleadia repeatedly lied about it. And when the actual contrary facts came out in the trial, it was largely ignored.

DigitalWarrior 7 points ago (edited)

Incorrect on the shooting. He didn't shoot first, you make it sound like he walked up and capped the kid for walking in the neighborhood.

Here is what was said in court about what happened. Zimmerman was found innocent of the charges against him.


"He jumped out from the bushes and said what the f**k is your problem," Zimmerman said to Singleton. "I said I don't have a problem and then he punched me in the nose."

"As soon as he punched me I fell backwards. He was whaling on my head and I started yelling help," said Zimmerman. "He grabbed my head and started hitting me into the sidewalk. I slid into the grass to get out from under him. I was still yelling out for help."

Zimmerman said Martin told him, "You are going to die tonight" and kept banging his head into the sidewalk, and that he shot and killed the teen soon after.


In order to be justified in the use of lethal force, there are some thing to consider. Ability, opportunity, jeopardy and preclusion. I'm not going to expand on those, you can google those words together and you'll see articles discussing the justified use of lethal force. Zimmerman met those standards. Trayvon as best we know said he was going to kill zimmerman, he attacked zimmerman, he got him pinned to the ground and was slamming his head. That set of events makes it justified for zimmerman to defend his life against Trayvons attempt of lethal force usage on Zimmerman. Trayvon initiated the use of lethal force while pinning zimmerman to the ground, or at a minimum, making it difficult for zimmerman to choose an alternate or less lethal course of action.

The Jury agreed with that assessment.

A stand up fight generally is not a deadly force incident that would justify the use of a firearm.. . .generally.

When someone is on the ground, and their escape or deescalation is prevented and someone is "ground and pounding" them, that is hitting or slamming them in a fasion where the impact is braced against something that doesnt move, that action can be considered deadly force. You can kick a person and it is probably non lethal, you can punch a person and its probably non lethal, but put their head on the ground and punch their head while their pressed up against a concrete floor and now you have deadly force.

Trayvon initiated the use of deadly force, prevented the victim Zimmerman from having the ability to escape or deescalate and zimmerman rightly defended himself against trayvon by meeting trayvons unjustified use of deadly force by using his own judicious use of deadly force in his self defense.

GG End of story. So many people out there just see "one guy with a gun shot a poor dude without one."

Research, study, learn, get facts, get educated, be smart.

2
DisgustedByMisleadia 2 points ago (edited)

Zimmerman is suing the parents for lying about him. They have continued to libel him repeatedly, making claims that are verifiably false to enrich themselves.

But, the real motivation is the revelation that the parents were knowing participants in a scheme to substitute a witness against him. If the allegations are true, the "girlfriend" who testified against Zimmerman during the trial was not the actual person on the call with Martin just before the attack.

The evidence is pretty compelling that it was actually the half-sister of Rachael Jeantel.

24
DisgustedByMisleadia 24 points ago (edited)

Had you actually listened to the trial or read the transcripts, you would have learned that Zimmerman was doing exactly what he thought the police dispatcher wanted.

The dispatcher kept asking Zimmerman where Martin went, and only when he realized Zimmerman was following, told him he didn't need to do that. Zimmerman said "OK", hung up and was on his way back to his truck.

That's when Martin circled back and attacked Zimmerman. Jeantel's testimony was essentially that Martin was in a "gay panic", but given the new information that has come to light, that's suspect. Someone would have to ask the person actually on the phone with Martin for an explanation.
