GZ atty O'Mara shrugs

The Dummy Defense that O’Mara didn’t need.

-Mark O’Mara’s opening statement,  “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, first off, I’d like you to know, “my client is STUPID”.”

-Juror One:  How stupid is he?

-Mark O’Mara:  For instance, my client went on the Sean Hannity Show, a nationally televised talk show and actually said that the killing of Trayvon Martin was all in God’s plan.

-Juror Two:  Oh I see Mr. O’Mara, he is pretty dumb.  What else did your dumb client do besides hiring you?

-Mark O’Mara: Well, in all fairness, you have to understand, “I couldn’t help myself.  I mean the cameras, the lights, the media attention, I just couldn’t pass it up.  Besides I got $40,000 out the deal to redo my office.”

-Juror Two:  ::wink::  $40,000, it must be real nice.

-Mark O’Mara:  Well, it WAS but as you can see my client George Zimmerman has gained 100 lbs. since he’s hired me.  Unfortunately he’s broken a few chairs in the waiting room but on a happy note, from my understanding George says he’s going replace every last one of them.  He says he’s going to sue people after he wins this case ::hehehe::  However between me, you and the judge, I don’t have any money to put on a real defense that’s why I’m using the Dummy Defense.  This new defense strategy will set precedent in the justice system and I’m going to be famous.  Any questions?

-Juror Three:  Mr. O’Mara, can you tell us of any other stupid things your client has done besides the Sean Hannity atrocity?

-Mark O’Mara: You mean besides the reason we’re all here?  Besides that time he approached a 17 year old teenager who was walking home in the rain on a public street at 7pm and somehow managed to kill him?

-Juror Three: Yeah, besides that.

-Mark O’Mara:  Well, let’s see.  It was reported in the documents that my client once turned off his mother’s electricity, locked the box and left.  Oh yeah, George has this habit of calling 911.  Do you know that he’s called 911 about 47 times in the last 3 years?  That’s a point I’d like to make. My client is delusional.  He thinks he’s law enforcement.  Now, if that’s not dumb?  I should also tell you, my client is not only dumb, he’s an asshole.

:: All the jurors nod their heads in agreement ::

-Mark O’Mara continues:  blah, ba blah, ba blah blah blah….

 

 

And to think that not even an acquittal for committing cold blooded murder has George Zimmerman smartened up.  He is the scum of the earth and I hope everyday of his pitiful existence that he struggles with the image of Trayvon Martin’s dying face and how easily he could have avoided the entire situation by simply waiting for the officer to arrive.  Shame on him.  He wasn’t a real cop for a reason.

Since George Zimmerman’s  unbelievable 2nd degree murder acquittal July 13th, just months ago, he’s been in the news on three occasions.

He was caught speeding in Texas, speeding in Florida and most recently he was involved in a domestic dispute involving his wife Shellie who has recently filed for a divorce. Things apparently got heated during a property exchange causing George’s estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman to call law enforcement due to George Zimmerman’s unruly behavior at her father’s home.  Apparently Georgie isn’t very happy with the break-up.

18 months ago Shellie Zimmerman who had lied to Judge Kenneth Lester in order to get a reduced bail for her beloved husband was recently convicted of misdemeanor perjury.  Ironically the only person who’s paid any price having to do with Trayvon Martin’s murder is Shellie.

 No good deed goes unpunished

It was reported during Monday’s property exchange things turned ugly.  Shellie claimed that her estranged husband threatened her with a gun. George, who showed up with 7 of his buddies punched her father in the nose and conveniently broke Shellie’s IPad she was using to video tape the property exchange.

Here’s the 911 call

In a very telling remark George Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara had this to say, “I’ve come to know them as a family, and it’s not a good idea to get between them.”

After the ordeal, Shellie recanted her story and she and her father refused to press charges against George Zimmerman, however the investigation continues as investigators believe the mobile device captured video of the dispute.

Snipped:

Investigators believe the mobile device captured video of Monday’s dispute at the Lake Mary house where the Zimmermans had been living. Shellie Zimmerman told authorities he smashed it to pieces, but the former neighborhood watch volunteer said she hit him with it. Police said it was examined at a crime lab, and the chances of them being able to watch the video were “outstanding,” but it wasn’t clear when that might happen.

Stay tuned as the George Zimmerman saga continues.  It seems that the man refuses to go away until he finds himself in jail again.

colorful quarter
Yes, that’s just what I need.  After the ridiculous, unbelievable verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, I think we all need one.

Florida got it wrong just the way they planned

It seems to me that since Sanford Police Department refused to arrest Zimmerman in the first place and it took a plethora bad press and protesters to get them to do so, they decided it would not be good publicity for their court system to find him guilty.   Imagine if a jury had found Zimmerman guilty.  That would mean they were wrong.  But by him being found not guilty, it says to the World “you see we were right all along! That’s why he wasn’t arrested!”

Isn’t it odd that out of hundreds of potential jurors that not one African American made the jury?  How could Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda allow that to happen?

You see, I was one of these naïve people who mistakenly believed this was not a racial case, that this was a case of “right or wrong”.    I thought that once the jurors heard of Zimmerman’s past violent history and his propensity to get into fights, that the jurors would have a better understanding of the case.  Regardless of Trayvon Martin’s past they would have at least convicted him of manslaughter.  But there lies the problem,  the prosecution didn’t get that information to the jury.  They didn’t subpoena Zimmerman’s ex-fiancée to testify regarding a restraining order, nor did they subpoena  the officer who arrested Zimmerman to testify against him.

On the last day of the trial, Prosecutor John Guy informed Judge Nelson that he had one more witness.  Unfortunately the next day he informed Judge Nelson,  the officer was not “available”.   Have you ever heard of a police officer who wasn’t available to testify in a murder trial?   I think you get my drift.  This trial wasn’t meant to be.   So with that said, I’m going on vacation.  I hope you do too.  Perhaps at a better time, in a better jurisdiction, George Zimmerman will get his just regard, till then Happy Vacation!

For Your Information, here are three of the incidents that took place in Orange County, Florida

In 2005, Zimmerman, then 20, was arrested and charged with “resisting officer with violence” and “battery of law enforcement officer,” both which are third-degree felonies. The charge was reduced to “resisting officer without violence” and then waived when he entered an alcohol education program. Contemporaneous accounts indicate he shoved an officer who was questioning a friend for alleged underage drinking at an Orange County bar.

In August 2005, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancee, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman counterfiled for a restraining order against Zuazo. The competing claims were resolved with both restraining orders being granted.

In December 2006, Zimmerman was charged with speeding. The case was dismissed when the officer failed to show up in court.

hammer of justice

Here’s something to ponder as we await the verdict.  Instructions to the Jury.

Things I’ve highlighted…

Second Degree Murder or Manslaughter?

If you find Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, you will then consider the circumstances surrounding the killing in deciding if the killing was Murder in the Second Degree or was Manslaughter, or whether the killing was excusable or resulted from justifiable use of deadly force.

Did Trayvon Martin attempt to murder or commit a felony upon George Zimmerman?  In my opinion, Trayvon Martin did not attempt to murder or commit a felony upon GZ.  In my opinion, Trayvon Martin was attempting to save his own life especially if he happened to see GZ’s gun which I believe he did.

Excusable Homicide: The killing of a human being is excusable, and therefore lawful, under any one of the three following circumstances:

1. When the killing is committed by accident and misfortune in doing any lawful act by lawful means with usual ordinary caution and without any unlawful intent, or

2. When the killing occurs by accident and misfortune in the heat of passion, upon any sudden and sufficient provocation, or

3. When the killing is committed by accident and misfortune resulting from a sudden combat, if a dangerous weapon is not used and the attempted killing is not done in a cruel and unusual manner. – See more

In my opinion, #3 may not look good for the State if the jury believes it was TM who initially sucker punched GZ but this is where it gets interesting.  This is where GZ’s family background; his best friend “Mark Osterman” and his academic knowledge of SYG comes in handy for George.  This is why he’s claiming TM sucker punched him. Now I know why Mark O’Mara focused only on who started the fight. The Defense also didn’t want the word “provocation” used in these instructions.

SECOND DEGREE MURDER

To prove the crime of Second Degree Murder, the State must prove the following three elements beyond a reasonable doubt:

1. Trayvon Martin is dead.

2. The death was caused by the criminal act of George Zimmerman.

3. There was an unlawful killing of Trayvon Martin by an act imminently dangerous to another and demonstrating a depraved mind without regard for human life. An “act” includes a series of related actions arising from and performed pursuant to a single design or purpose.

An act is “imminently dangerous to another and demonstrating a depraved mind” if it is an act or series of acts that: 1. a person of ordinary judgment would know is reasonably certain to kill or do serious bodily injury to another, and 2. is done from ill will, hatred, spite or an evil intent, and

3. is of such a nature that the act itself indicates an indifference to human life. In order to convict of Second Degree Murder, it is not necessary for the State to prove George Zimmerman had an intent to cause death.

In my opinion, as to #3 “act”.  GZ, as a responsible gun owner; with a license to carry a concealed weapon should have known not to approach any person whom he considered suspicious while carrying a loaded gun. We know that he considered TM suspicious because he called NEN 911  We know that he said TM circled his truck, then ran which a reasonable person such as GZ; would perceive as fear. Once he saw Trayvon Martin’s fear, he jumped out of his truck, carrying a gun; with “evil intent” to bring in his prize, the A-Hole; effing Punk.

*edited:  should have read #3 instead of #1.  I was referring to “act”

POSSESSION OF A FIREARM AND DISCHARGE CAUSING DEATH

If you find that George Zimmerman committed Second Degree Murder and you also find beyond a reasonable doubt that during the commission of the crime, he discharged a firearm, and in doing so, caused great bodily harm to, or the death of, Trayvon Martin, you should find George Zimmerman guilty of Second Degree Murder with discharge of a firearm causing great bodily harm or death.

If you find that George Zimmerman committed Second Degree Murder, and you also find beyond a reasonable doubt that during the commission of the crime, he discharged a firearm, you should find George Zimmerman guilty of Second Degree Murder with discharge of a firearm.

If you find that George Zimmerman committed Second Degree Murder and you also find beyond a reasonable doubt that during the commission of the crime, he actually possessed a firearm, you should find George Zimmerman guilty of Second Degree Murder with actual possession of a firearm.

I purposely left out description of firearms. From my understanding this clause could add up as much as 25years onto GZ’s sentence. I’m not sure if it’s necessary to give him 25 more years to his sentence if he’s found guilty of Second Degree Murder.  In my opinion, taking a way GZ’s right to carry a firearm, concealed or otherwise is a punishment within itself.

MANSLAUGHTER

To prove the crime of Manslaughter, the State must prove the following two elements beyond a reasonable doubt:

1. Trayvon Martin is dead.

2. George Zimmerman intentionally committed an act or acts that caused the death of Trayvon Martin.

In my opinion, the State definitely proved Manslaughter and if he’s found guilty of Manslaughter, the Jury should add the Firearm clause.

~~~

Well, that’s my verdict.

Please feel free to leave your interpretation of Instructions or comment on this thread.

PS: And if all else fails..Wrongful death law suits will be coming his way…

http://www.news965.com/news/news/local/document-instructions-george-zimmerman-jury/nYnm3/

On Friday, July 5th, after 9 days of testimony, the State of Florida rest it’s case against George Zimmerman, accused of 2nd degree murder in the senseless shooting of 17-year old Trayvon Benjamin Martin.  As expected in most murder trials, Mark O’Mara and co-counsel Don West asked Judge Debra Nelson for an acquittal which she denied. With that the defense began.  Attorney Mark O’Mara calls his first witness, George Zimmerman’s mother. Gladys Zimmerman who swore under oath that the voice she heard on the 911 call was the voice of her son.

When O’Mara asked, “Why do you think it’s George?” Gladys simply replied, ” Because he’s MY son”  Bingo!  Although she hasn’t heard him like that before, she’s certain it was her son George.  Very good Gladys. Now you can go for ice cream with Donny and Molly.

Just as quickly as George’s mother’s testimony came to a close, up to the stand was Jorge Mesa, George Zimmerman’s uncle.

Jorge Mesa, who happens to have ties with Orange County, Florida has been a courthouse deputy since 2007.  I should add, George’s father, Robert Zimmerman Sr. is a retired Supreme Court Magistrate judge from Virginia. And I wonder why George Zimmerman’s case wasn’t brought to a Grand Jury.

Jorge Mesa testified that he hadn’t heard the 911 call with screams for help in the background until he heard it over television while his wife was watching the news.  He admitted that he knew his nephew was involved in a shooting but was trying not to get involved.  Ashamed, perhaps?  I can’t help but wonder if Uncle Jorge is the father of the niece George Zimmerman is accused of molesting years ago. The girl was at one point on the State witness list but for reasons unknown, Bernie de la Rionda chose not to call her to the stand.

Mr. Mesa went on to say that he knew the screams he heard belonged to George because he heard him sound like that when he was laughing.  Does laughing ever sound like screaming?  Or is this what George sounded like when he was kicking his ass for touching his daughter?   I really don’t know who the poor child belonged to. One can only speculate…the child was George’s cousin.

Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda’s cross examination was short and methodical.  He basically emphasized that he was in fact “George’s uncle” and with that bit of “consider the source”, Jorge Mesa was dismissed.

Considering the defense’s opening witnesses,  I can only presume that their case hinges heavily on the 911 screams.  As I recall, in the same 911 call in which the screams can be heard, the female caller did say, “They” are screaming for help” meaning more than one person.  I’m hoping that the jury will listen very closely to the tapes.  If they do, in the midst of the screams, they will hear, “I’m beggin you!”.  George Zimmerman certainly didn’t scream that.  He had the gun.

~~~

Court will continue today at 9:00am.

TheJBMission~

After almost 2 days on the stand, Rachel Jeantel was finally dismissed or at least for now. Rachel Jeantel, aka Witness 8 aka DeeDee is the childhood friend of shooting victim 17 year-old Trayvon Martin.

Rachel Jeantel 2Documents show she was on her cell phone with Trayvon Martin during the crucial time when Martin was shot down. On February 26, 2012 at about 7:15pm his body lay motionless in the middle walkway of Retreat View Circle Condos thanks to the inane actions of an overzealous Law-Enforcement-Flunkie who had the audacity to think he looked suspicious. This person 29yo George Zimmerman is now on trial facing 25 years to life for 2nd degree murder or if he’s lucky perhaps 5 years for manslaughter.

For the last year and half there’s been much talk about Witness 8. The reason being, Witness 8 later known as “Dee Dee” was not found out by law enforcement during the initial investigation.  Law enforcement, as 19 year-old W8 Rachel Jeantel so wisely pointed out didn’t follow normal procedure. Unlike the television show “The First 48 Hours” they didn’t check the victim’s cell phone records to find out who he spoke with in the last minutes of his life. This is Detective 101, something I pointed out early on.

 Why didn’t Sanford Police Dept. or the FDLE do this simple task?

Why were they in a rush to set George Zimmerman free without a full investigation?

I shiver to think, “racism” but maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t George Zimmerman who is the racist, maybe it’s Sanford PD and Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement, after all Seminole County population is 94% white and maybe it’s expected. I don’t know because I don’t live there but if I did, I’d want to know why.

At trial today, defense attorney Don West picked up where he left off.  The now-infamous Rachel Jeantel took the stand. You could tell she didn’t want to be there. She didn’t want to be badgered for another 4 hours like yesterday. It’s really pitiful to watch.

Here we have this 60 year old, well-educated, well-practiced attorney cross examining a reluctant young woman whose only crime was to happen to be on the phone with Trayvon Martin moments before he was brutally shot in the chest. And for that she had to come out of the closet, show her face and take the abuse of Don West who was hired to try to save the better years of George Zimmerman’s life.
Yesterday when Rachel Jeantel was introduced to the world, liked everyone else, I tried to size her up, figure her out. What I saw was a young black female who was well groomed, beautiful skin, beautiful green eyes and enough stature to hold her own on any block in Miami. True, she spoke in low tones and in the dialect of many young women of her culture which made us all listen very closely.

She retold the events of evening of February 26th as Trayvon Martin related to her. She said Trayvon Martin referred to the man who was stalking him as Creepy White Cracker. The courtroom gasped but nonetheless it was a good thing.  This let the jury know who she was and how Trayvon Martin perceived George Zimmerman. Amazingly, Rachel Jeantel verbalized all of that with one phrase.

~~~

Not having ever lived in Miami, Florida, I don’t know much about the African American youth of their city but I am familiar with the African American youth of New Orleans. I’ve learned this mostly through my son whose best friends are African American whom I’ve played mother to on several occasions.  As I spoke with them I learned a common thread among these young men, they do not trust law enforcement.
I’m tempted to think this is same for Rachel Jeantel and one of the reasons why she tried so hard to lay low. I’ve learned her mother lives in Haiti. I’ve learned she is 19 years old still in high school and sadly we learned today that she cannot read cursive. I’m not surprised by her admission.

I’m surprised that others are surprised. This isn’t new to me. Here in New Orleans area public schools, cursive writing is a thing of the past. No longer do teachers spend time teaching children cursive writing and good penmanship like they did in parochial schools where I was taught. According to educators this is because in our new age of technology, computers have taken the place of penmanship. I find it appalling. I hope these educators will take note of this trial, proof that all forms of writing are important.

In all, Rachel Jeantel did a stellar job on the stand. Regardless of misquoting phrases in her depositions, her story never faltered. Witness 8 was the most brave and honest witness as yet to testify.

Thank you Rachel Jeantel for coming forward.

Those of us who wish justice for Trayvon Martin will never forget you.

“To See, To Speak”

We are finally here, Day One of the George Zimmerman trial.  The defense team, Mark O’Mara and Don West along with Asst. State Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda have the enormous task of finding 6 unbiased, unaware swamp dwelling people who live in Seminole county Florida who have not heard of this case or more realistically have not formed an opinion of this case.  The State and the defense team will then decide, if they have formed an opinion, do they still have the ability to be fair?

On February 26, 2012, the defendant George Zimmerman called non-emergency 911 to report a suspicious person.  Listen to non-emergercy call below.

Initally Sanford Police Department did not arrest George Zimmerman.  The case was later handed over to Florida State Attorney Angela Corey who subsequentally indicted Zimmerman charging him with 2nd degree murder.

In America, most of our trials begin with jury selection or vior dire.

voir dire

(vwahr [with a near-silent "r"] deer) n. from French “to see to speak,” the questioning of prospective jurors by a judge and attorneys in court. Voir dire is used to determine if any juror is biased and/or cannot deal with the issues fairly, or if there is cause not to allow a juror to serve (knowledge of the facts; acquaintanceship with parties, witnesses or attorneys; occupation which might lead to bias; prejudice against the death penalty; or previous experiences such as having been sued in a similar case). Actually one of the unspoken purposes of the voir dire is for the attorneys to get a feel for the personalities and likely views of the people on the jury panel. In some courts the judge asks most of the questions, while in others the lawyers are given substantial latitude and time to ask questions. Some jurors may be dismissed for cause by the judge, and the attorneys may excuse others in “peremptory” challenges without stating any reason. 2) questions asked to determine the competence of an alleged expert witness. 3) any hearing outside the presence of the jury held during trial.

After filling out a questionnaire, the 500 selected potential jurors have been broken up into 3 groups.  Today the State and defense will question the first group, tomorrow the second group and Wednesday the third group.  The questionnaire has not been made public.

Before today there was still a question regarding audio experts. I’m relieved to learn that on Saturday Judge Debra Nelson, that the expert opinions regarding the “death sheik” will be admissible.  I’m not surprised to add, defense attorney Mark O’Mara once again asked for a continuance which was denied and O’Mara says he has a witness he’d like to had to the list.

Let justice prevail!

“Denied, Denied, Denied” were the harmonious words heard over and over again”

After filing mutiple motions in a last ditch effort to build a reasonable defense for George Zimmerman, defense attorneys Mark O’Mara and Don West walked gloomily out of the courtroom today. Without much help from Judge Nelson, their day was a wash.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson ruled that defense attorneys will not be able to mention Trayvon Martin’s school suspension, alleged participation in fights or his past use of marijuana.

Trayvon Martin

As any first-year law student would know, Mark O’Mara’s strategy to post online photos and text messages from Trayvon’s cellphone was not only a way to victimize Zimmerman’s victim again but a blatant sleazy attempt to tarnish the jury pool. As expected, O’Mara’s request to have such garbage entered into evidence was quickly denied.

In other rulings, the judge refused to allow jurors to travel to the crime scene predicting that the excursion would be “a logistical nightmare” and she also refused the defense request to have jurors sequestered.  As for the defense’s request to delay the start of the trial, that was denied too. As Judge Debra Nelson previously ruled, the trial will begin June 10, 2013.

As the 2 hour hearing continued, the prosecution won another victory. Judge Nelson granted their request to withhold information as to why it took so long for Zimmerman to be charged with second-degree murder. She ruled that no dialogue or information will be allow from officers of Sanford Police Dept. or State attorneys as to why they originally decided not to arrest George Zimmerman.
GZ hearing 5 28
However, she granted the defense team’s request to hold a hearing as to whether the prosecution failed to turn over evidence.  A former attorney in the State’s office has charged the prosecution with withholding Trayvon’s cellphone photographs and text messages.  From my understanding this issue will be handled sometime after the trial.

Judge Nelson announced she will hold a Frye hearing on June 6th to hear arguments about whether to admit testimony from state audio expert, Alan Reich.  In this report sent to prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda, Mr. Reich says the audio of a 911 call has the voice of Trayvon Martin in a screaming trembling voice, “I’m begging you.”

After the Hearing

Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon’s family, said his family was pleased with the judge’s rulings. “Trayvon Martin is not on trial,” Mr. Crump said.

After the hearing, Robert Zimmerman, George’s brother, called on the state to drop the second-degree murder charges.  He added “In this country. You don’t charge someone with any crime solely to assuage the concerns of misinformed masses,” he said, according to CNN.

After being ill for so long and away from the Trayvon Martin murder case,  it was good to return just in time to watch the George Zimmerman April 30th hearing.  For the most part,  I think now, “I’m all caught up!”

Wow! Thank you Trent!  He’s my hero, without Trent, owner of TheStateoftheinternet.com I would be lost.  After following murder trials for most of my life, I can honestly say — “I’ve never seen anything like this one”.   A prosecutor questions the defense attorney on the stand!  What can I say?

For those who missed it, I’ll lead you to YouTube.

Here are the first few videos of the 13 Trent posted.  Be ready to grit your teeth.  Mark O’Mara and Don West’s pitiful desperation is so thick you can cut it with a knife.  The fact is, “George Zimmerman has NO defense.”

Mark O'Mara 3-22

After months of playing Public Relations Guy and constantly pandering to the media, George Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara has finally decided to get to the work he was hired to do.

He began last Wednesday, March 13th deposing the ever-elusive Witness 8 aka DeeDee.  “DeeDee” is code name for Trayvon Martin’s friend whom he happened to be on the phone with on the night he was shot down by George Zimmerman.

Unbeknownst to the shooter, Trayvon had been on his cell phone with DeeDee during most of the evening of February 26th.

It’s unknown to the public how or why Sanford investigators and asst. prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda overlooked these important phone calls taking place during this crucial time frame, nonetheless T-Mobile phone records show DeeDee was in contact by cell phone with Trayvon Martin on 4 occasions beginning at  6:54pm.

Call record:

Incoming — I minute — 6:54pm

Incoming — 18 minutes — 6:54pm

Incoming — 1 minute — 7:04pm

Incoming — 4 minutes — 7:12pm

 *It’s important to note that on the night of February 26th it was raining heavily.  It’s probable that a phone call could have been dropped due to the weather.       

Records show George Zimmerman called non-emergency 911 at 7:09PM — EST.   According to transcripts, the call lasted 4:07 minutes which indicates the call ended at approximately 7:13PM — EST.

Obviously it’s this information that makes Witness 8 vital to the case. I’m still amazed that DeeDee’s phone calls were overlooked by law enforcement and prosecutors.  Had it not been for Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin’s personal attorney Benjamin Crump, its likely Witness 8 would have been lost in the paper work.

It was attorney Benjamin Crump who initially spoke with Witness 8 who related her version (via telephone) of what happened on night Trayvon Martin was killed.

Just by the fact that George Zimmerman walked out of Sanford Police Department a free man on the night of the shooting and then overlooking “DeeDee” as a key witness is not acceptable in any murder investigation.  In my point of view, it’s these types of faux pa’s and mistakes that have caused so much public distrust in this case.

    ~~~

So after the much awaited “DeeDee Deposition”, the next day March 14th, O’Mara began at 9am, to depose Brandi Green, Tracy Martin’s girlfriend whose home Trayvon was en route when he was approached by George Zimmerman.  It was her 8-year old son who was patiently waiting at home for Trayvon’s return with his bag of Skittles candy and his Arizona Watermelon Iced Tea.

Next on O’Mara’s agenda was the 3PM deposition of Mark Osterman.  Mark Osterman is said to be George Zimmerman’s best friend and confidante.  It was Mark Osterman who taught Zimmerman how to shoot a gun and it was Mark Osterman’s father who wrote a book about a cop turned vigilante. Ironically, George Zimmerman being of weak mind was probably more impressed with the book than most.  Considering Zimmerman acted out February 26th, it seems “vigilantism” is of great interest to him.  Last but not least, scheduled for 4PM was Witness 25 — civilian.

More work for Mark O’Mara as he begins Friday, March 15th with deposing Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother.  Later that day he deposed her son Jahvaris Martin.  Finally O’Mara’s day was complete.

It’s good to see Mark O’Mara is taking this case a little more seriously.  Up until now, he seemed to be depending on the “Stand Your Ground” hearing to put this case to an end but I think Judge Debra Nelson has given him and co-counsel, Attorney Donald West a “reality check.”

The trial will begin on June 10, 2013
