    These r some the sickest comments I have seen regarding this case! A young man was murdered in cold blood! Mr . Zimmerman
    Was not standing his ground! He was impeding on someone else’s
    Ground! What people fail to realize is when u follow stalk and harass me and carry a gun on a neighborhood watch session you are laying in wait to attack! Even if Trayvon was a gang member or a thief the punishment
    For that crime is not death! Mr. Zimmerman
    And people on this forum have misconstrued what a neighborhood
    Watchman’s duties consist of! You are on duty to ” watch” and report suspicious behavior to the police department! He reported to the police but disregarded
    The officers advice! That is not being a community partner
    ! He violated the tenants and by laws of his appointed position! If he did scream and feel in fear of his life at some point in the altercation
    He should have because he came out with the intent to kill! Why else was he carrying a weapon neighborhood watching
    Does not require defending ur life if you stay within your role & watch!

    • Robert Riversong

      Wendy Dorival, the volunteer program coordinator for the Sanford Police Department, who trained George Zimmerman for Neighborhood Watch, testified in court that she encourages neighbors to know who doesn’t belong and to call police if anything or anyone appears in any way suspicious or out of place and that a person walking in the rain between houses without a particular purpose – a description of Trayvon the night of the shooting – would be considered suspicious. Dorival denied that her training included a prohibition against following at a distance to gather information to provide to the police. And Dorival said she doesn’t discuss whether residents should carry firearms while participating in a Neighborhood Watch program, only that they must follow the law, and that they have the right to protect themselves if attacked.

      Sean Noffke, the Sanford police dispatcher who was on the phone with Zimmerman, testified in court that Zimmerman could have reasonably understood his question “Which way is he running?” as a request to get out of his vehicle and take a look. He also testified that he is NOT a police officer and is forbidden by policy from saying anything that even sounds like an order. But, when he did say to Zimmerman “we don’t need you to do that”, Zimmerman immediately responded “OK”, indicating continued compliance with the dispatcher’s requests.

      • gbpuzzler

        Zimmerman understood what Sean meant for him to do. That doesn’t mean that he complied. It especially doesn’t mean that he continued to comply after he ended the phone call.

    • JaydeFox

      There was no murder. Zimmerman has been innocent the whole time, just the typical race baiters and liberals who jumped on the case to make a quick buck

  • Jay C.

    Tray-thug had a girlfriend?

    • gbpuzzler

      His name wasn’t Tray-thug.

  • nomorebsplz

    It’s amazing how the girl in the crump interview sounds so different than Rachel. Just as her being ’16′ is different than Rachel actually being 18 at the time. And the defense discovering last year Rachel was *not* in the hospital. She’s a liar and even admitted she ‘lied’ to Crump (but I think that is part of the overall scam). I think she is covering for a friend ‘france’. She even discussed her during a media interview saying sometimes ‘france’ (Francine) is part of 3 way calls. But it’s too long to get into…

  • nomorebsplz

    “He was near his dad’s house. Then a couple of minutes later, the man was following him again”. Not verbatim but it’s past 9:20 in the natural interview, around 9:30 in this one provided. How does one get ‘near his dad’s house’ and still NOT be home in ‘a couple of minutes’ if he’s ‘going home’ or ‘scared’ ? The same way you are ‘near home’ and then end up all the way north near the T intersection. Wake up, Trayborg Collective.

    • gbpuzzler

      “Near” does not indicate a specific distance or location. He may have thought it best not to try to enter the home if Zimmerman could see him. And Zimmerman could have chased him back up towards the T.

  • oldsoldierboy

    Jeantel story was a made up response to GZ bogus story. TM never ran anywhere. She concluded that the best way to prove a victim was being aggressively pursued and in fear of his life was to agree with GZ story that TM ran. It all backfired and used against TM in the end. I also don’t believe the creep cracker comment ever occurred. This kid reputation was further smeared during the trial. What a shame.

    • Robert Riversong

      Jeantel’s coached testimony (given first to the Martin family lawyers rather than to police or the state’s attorney) was credible ONLY in the few details that she inadvertently left in: including Trayvon’s racist comments, her suggestion that the “cracker” might be a homosexual pervert (perhaps triggering Trayvon’s homophobia and making his assault a hate crime), and that Trayvon had gone all the way to Brandy Green’s townhouse before the fight began, indicating that he made the conscious decision to return to the Tee and confront Zimmerman.

  • What is she saying

    Wow she may have thought it was ok to talk in ebonics but she needs hooked on phonics. Nobody, including me understood a word she was saying. Is that English or ignorance? What a terrible, lying witness. Speak something close to English. Terrible.

    • gbpuzzler

      As she indicated, she had a speech defect, and she did not get the prior coaching that she should have on how to speak in court.

  • Sandshark2

    I believe it’s true she didn’t want to be in the spotlight because she knew she had to lie to protect her friend. Her obeying the black culture provided her now with college for free. However she is a Christian and will have to live with the fact she lied on the stand and will one day have to answer to God. If she came out now with the truth, she could finally feel peace inside that troubled mind.. but right now she is in the middle of her fifteen minutes of fame. > just my thoughts…. > i hope she will come clean and live the life God promised her .. a future and a hope.

    • Robert Riversong

      Jeantel admitted in court that her only goal in coming forward was to get Zimmerman arrested. This was a hostile and entirely non-credible witness who, nevertheless, inadvertently offered evidence to support Zimmerman’s story.

      • gbpuzzler

        When asked, she specifically denied that Trayvon returned to the T to start the altercation with Zimmerman. She reasonably pointed out that he would have ended the phone call to do so. Attorney Don West managed to twist what this naive and inexperienced witness said, and to get people to believe this false story by repeatedly hammering on it, and the prosecution should have tried to stop him and didn’t.

  • Chairman Meow

    Indigent Blacks need to be moved to Federal Sanctuaries immediately, like this disgusting sow lejentel or whatever, they are unemployable. We need to quit feeding them and place them in sanctuaries where they can learn minimal life skillz, and maybe one day leave those sanctuaries….Geez

    • gbpuzzler

      Maybe you should be moved to a federal sanctuary until you can learn not to be such a disgusting racist.

    • gbpuzzler

      And what could she have said if she had called the police? She was in another city 200 miles away, and she had no information which would have let the Sanford police locate Trayvon Martin.

    • Darrell Guill

      Sorry, she was the one showing ignorance. Ignorance of any recognizable language skills.

  • MrTomY

    Here’s my take on this trial. If GZ was an actual police officer, then I don’t believe Travon would have acted in any way aggressively but would have went straight to his destination. The police officer has a uniform and a gun, so there’s no question you’re not going to mess with him. Years ago my father was part of a neighborhood watch and each member had a jacked with identification all over it that said “Neighborhood Watch Patrol”, and they were an ugly bright purple jackets with yellow lettering. GZ’s watch team should have had something similar to distinguish them, and I don’t believe packing a gun is a wise thing to do either, legal or not. I believe it can give you a false sense of power. If these two things were followed, this situation would never have happened, no matter who started the fight! Just sayin’.

    • atoz350

      Well according to the testimony, GZ wasn’t on duty that night and would not have been required to wear said jacket. I understood his concern for the safety of his neighbors, but his compassion was a bit overwhelming. Simply put, he should have minded his own business.

      • Robert Riversong

        His neighborhood’s safety WAS his own business.

      • gbpuzzler

        In response to everyone on this thread, in spite of what GZ claimed there is no evidence to indicate that TM just assaulted him, and some evidence to indicate that GZ just assaulted TM. After all, GZ was the one originally pursuing and who had the gun, and TM is the one who was running away.

        GZ wasn’t “on duty” that night because there was no such thing. He volunteered to start the Neighborhood Watch chapter, and then never followed through by getting block captains and notifying all the residents. For him Neighborhood Watch was an excuse to play cop by “patrolling” with a gun, contrary to the intent of the program. He wasn’t promoting the safety of the neighborhood, he was making it less safe by his actions.

        If GZ had been wearing a uniform or gun to identify him as neighborhood watch, then possibly TM would have been somewhat less inclined to panic over the creepy guy following him, and more inclined to comply with a request to wait for the police – except that neither RJ’s account nor GZ’s own claims have him making such a request. The closest to it we come was RJ’s saying that GZ demanded “What are you doing around here?” without giving any explanation as to why he was asking.

    • Garet Jax

      I get your point. But you can’t just assault people, regardless of their clothing. And if someone is violent and aggressive enough to attack anyone but clearly identified law enforcement they need to be in jail.

  • stormrung e

    West totally impeaches her. She admitted that she changed her story in order not to hurt Sabrina Fulton’s feelings. Unreliable witness.

    • stormrung e

      The fact she didn’t volunteer probably the most important information of the whole case, that she heard TM say “a little get off” until April 2 by saying she wasn’t asked, is just nonsense. She originally said the phone was cut off and she didn’t think to mention “a little get off” until De La Rionda asked? Come on.

  • Sally Saucer

    Nice pictures ABC of Trayvon when he was 12.
    Nice description of the “16 year old girlfriend” (saw her today in court).
    Are you trying to start a race war?

    • JaneDoe

      That picture in the red shirt is NOT of him when he was 12, he was 16, literally months before he died. And she’s still in High School. Still a teenager.

      And the “race war” was started by George when he felt no compunction for stalking and killing a black kid for no good reason.

      • Gramatacolian

        It wasn’t stalking.

    • Chairman Meow

      the picture at 12 looks like a murderer to me

      • reminding you

        Just for your information TRAYVON MARTIN has never raped your infants and disembowelled them in front of you , neither did he ever, raped or murdered your innocent children and throw them in dugouts. Neither did he took them across the atlantic ocean in ships and when they felt sick due to starvation, he would have them dumped overboard. Then gather the rest of the hate group to celebrate with cigars and whiskey.And you are calling him a murderer. JUST THINK OF WHO ARE THE REAL MURDERERS.

        • Chairman Meow

          Look at Detroit, blacks are worthless and its high time we treat the whole race like this

          • Tracy

            Look at all the crazy stuff white people do on a daily basis… Rape thri kids, leave their kids in cars, run meth labs… White people need to be put on an island somewhere. They are getting out of control! They are no longer the majority…

          • Chairman Meow

            Great verdict for America, Detroit is just the beginning in the collapse
            of all balck cities, 40% of today black teenagers will get a diploma,
            95% will be unemployed.unless they are moved to Federal Sanctuaries
            immediately there will be 10,000,000 trayvon’s in the next decade. They
            are just walling off Detroit and letting indigent population fend for
            themselves, they will flee to other welfare centers collapsing each
            economy in turn, you know the typical black social worker whose fake
            nails are too long so she does the typing with a pencil, theses crooks
            are done. 95% unemployment for black people. In ten years when they do the census I predict a 6% overall black population. In ten years we will be golden, no we make up 76% of the population according to the 2013 census, blacks 12 % as zimmerman to the equation and we have whites and hispanics against you, the asians have always been. Blacks you have outstayed your welcome in the USA

          • Dr. Obvious

            hey, there’s the answer: Reservations for black people.

          • gbpuzzler

            10 million Trayvons – you mean, 10 million black teens whose parents are gainfully employed,and who get in minor trouble at school but get good grades and are looking to go to college? That would be fine by me.

            Oh, and in case you have forgotten, blacks were originally “welcomed” into this country as slaves who were forced to work for white slaveowners.

            The only basis for your claims is your own rabid racism. There is no reason to expect 95% unemployment for black people, or that they will collapse the economies of one city after another. The reason that some cities are doing badly is that manufacturing or other previous major sources of employment have moved out, often abroad, not because they have a high percentage of black people in their population. And BTW, there are also lots of poor white chronically unemployed people in this country. Why is it that you don’t seem to believe that they are a drain on the economy or call for them to be moved to federal sanctuaries?

        • Chairman Meow

          black people

        • Dr. Obvious

          lol. black people selling black people to white people. the original black on black crime. the slave traders didnt just go down and pluck up people out from their huts, they were slaves already to other tribes.

  • derp

    Kevin shut the fuck up

  • bmhay1

    I don’t know why Dee Dee lied about her age or why she did not attend Trayvon’s wake, but I would like to know. To me, she does NOT sound like she is on drugs. She sounds illiterate or mentally challenged. She also sounds “scared” and I would imagine being “scared” is the reason she did not attend the wake. Perhaps lack of “Trust” is the reason for lying, however, she lied under oath, and I wonder about her “understanding.” She clearly had to have words drawn from her from each interviewer. I still think what she had to say, although minimal, is valuable information to this case, and speaks for Trayvon and shows that George Zimmerman is lying about the way things happened, like Trayvon jumping out of the bushes, boogieman style and bopping him in the nose, as George looks for his phone that he forgot where he put.

    • gbpuzzler

      I doubt that she is “mentally challenged”. She is not a genius, but she is not stupid. She may have a learning disability.

      Possible reasons for not attending the wake might be her being “creeped out” over the circumstances of his death and her being the last person to really talk to him, and not knowing his family and being uncomfortable about the prospect of meeting with them and speaking to them.

      • bmhay1

        Hi gbpuzzler…..where have you been the past few years? With lots of help, like Dee Dee promised Trayvon, she graduated high school and the last I recall, she was discussing with her mentors which college to attend.

  • Nina

    Her statement, that Trayvon saw a strange man following him and she told him to run to his dad’s house, is actually consistent with the statement Zimmerman made when he first called 9/11. Zimmerman, in the call (which I just listened to) says, as he is describing Trayvon to the operator, “He just started running.” Then Zimmerman starts to huff and pant into the phone while speaking. The operator asks “are you following him?” And Zimmerman confirms that he is running after the person.

    BTW- I don’t know why everyone is saying this girl sounds as if she is on drugs. She doesn’t. She sounds like a teenage girl. I used to work with teens, and she sounds completely normal.

    • Nina

      For what it’s worth, the stand your ground law does not cover chasing someone down. You aren’t standing your ground if you go chasing after someone. You have to be making an attempt to avoid the confrontation or get away. Look at the case of Marissa Alexander. She was sentenced to twenty years for firing a warning shot when her ex husband broke into the home and verbally threatened her life. She didn’t kill anybody- didn’t even aim to kill (according to the husband and herself)- but she was convicted because coming back into the home, from her garage, with a gun was inconsistent with the actions of someone in genuine fear for their life. The judge ruled that she should have run away. Zimmerman chased somebody down. Someone who was running away from him. If that’s not inconsistent with the actions of a man in fear for his life, I don’t know what is. I think the only person who really had a right to stand his ground, in the Zimmerman case, was Trayvon Martin.

      • Ssed Doga

        Nina, zimmerman did not chase him down. zimmerman had stopped trying to follow him ( he had lost sight of him for a minimum of 40 seconds ) and was heading back to his vehicle when martin confronted him. This is pretty well backed up by the physical evidence. ( recorded call to the polices non emergency line, position of the incident not far into the right of way near the end closer to zimmerman’s vehicle, comments made by the girl on the cell) not to mention by logic that a young long limb teen would be able to outrun a stocky shorter and older man.

        and if martin was in fear for his life, he would have hung up from chatting with the girl and called the cops or at least his dad. but he didnt. he continued talking to her right up until he decked zimmerman and dropped his phone.

        and yes.. the case you site was definately not self defense. and she aimed the gun and fired at two kids ( not just her ex because his sons were in there with him).

        • atoz350

          Don’t you think he would have hung up his phone before he hit Zimmerman if he was the aggressor? What part of the recorded 911 calls tells you that Zimmerman was heading back to his vehicle when Trayvon confronted him? The call that I heard ends with Zimmerman saying “bye” to the dispatcher and hanging up. This was before any timed “confrontation”. Please pay attention to the facts of the case instead of making up your own timeline of events.

          • Erik Weinstein

            why would he have necessarily hang up the phone. maybe he wanted dee dee to hear the confrontation. I don’t know. I can only guess. He said he was going to look for an address. He would have looked for an address so the police could meet up with him where he was parked. He was in a cut through and in order to find out what street he was on he would have to walk over to the other side of the circle where the street sign is at. I feel sure that he knew the names of all three streets, but that doesn’t mean he would know which street is which at every location where you have streets that circle and intersect, especially if you are in a cut-through. I had a job delivering pizza’s in neighborhoods with 3 or 4 streets where it was my job to know all the streets and I would still get confused about which house belonged to which streets when I was in cutthrought. The evidence is that the fight happened at the T less than 40 yards where Trayvon martin started running 4 minutes earlier. A very weird location for Martin to wind up if he was fleeing for 4 minutes. And it just happened to be at a location that Zimmerman could show the police how he got there when going to search for an address, something that he said he was going to do over the phone before he hung up. He must be Dr. No. He is a diabolical mastermind to figure out how to do this. what a coincidence that the fight happened in a location that would be in an area that was consistent where Zimmerman would have been if he went looking for an address and was walking back to his truck. He managed to trick Trayvon to get to the T and not further away, so that when he killed Trayvon it could be pointed out that he said he was going to look for an address and the killing would be in a location that was consistent with that. This man is a Mad Genius.

          • gbpuzzler

            It was over a minute after Zimmerman agreed to stop running to when he ends the phone call with the dispatcher, and there was definitely no confrontation with Trayvon going on at that point. And it was at least a minute after that before Trayvon indicated to Rachel that he saw Zimmerman again. If Zimmerman had gone back to his truck, he would have been there by then, not at the T waiting to be accosted. More likely he continued to search after he hung up.

            At the point in the conversation where he got out of the truck, he hadn’t even been asked for an address. Later, when he was asked for an address where the police could meet him, he ends up not giving one, but asking to have the police call him when he arrives. And who would go all the way through a cut-through to another street to report an address?

            The location of Trayvon’s body and other physical evidence is also not consistent with his story of how the altercation happened. He claimed that Trayvon knocked him down at the T and then sat straddling him until Zimmerman shot Trayvon. Yet the body, and most of the physical evidence, were over 40 feet away. It doesn’t take a diabolical genius to make up a story that sort of fits the facts, but has all kinds of inconsistencies with the facts. If the shooting had ended up a lot further down, he would have made up a different story.

            Yes, you are right that Martin probably wasn’t fleeing for 4 minutes. I believe that he ran down he dog walk path for a little ways, then looked for a hiding place where he stayed while he continued his conversation with Rachel J. He may have wanted to consider what to do next before he went all the way back to the home where he was staying, or maybe he figured that Zimmerman wouldn’t find him where he was.

        • gbpuzzler

          Zimmerman clearly did not simply hang up his phone and walk back to his truck. If he had, he would have been in his truck when the police arrived. The recorded call does not prove precisely where he was on the path, nor what he did after the call ended. Rachel also did not say anything to indicate that Martin did anything to start a physical confrontation, only that he talked to Zimmerman. She also said nothing to indicate that Martin went back to look for Zimmerman.

          Yes, I suppose it is reasonable to believe that a taller, longer-legged person could probably run faster than a shorter person, but who could run faster wasn’t necessarily the deciding factor. Trayvon may not have decided to run initially, since he reportedly talked to Zimmerman instead. Maybe Zimmerman had grabbed Trayvon, or at least grabbed his hoodie, before Trayvon was able to get away. Maybe Trayvon tripped over something or slipped and fell on the wet grass.

          And Travyon may not have been in fear for his life during the couple of minutes that he had run away from the truck and couldn’t see him walking around. After he and Zimmerman encountered each other again, he had no opportunity to call the police. Or maybe he figured that calling the police or his father just wouldn’t get him help soon enough to do him any good.

      • Chris

        SYG wasn’t used in this case. Everybody is making such a big deal over SYG,but this was a case of basic self defense. Every state has self defense laws like what were used in this case.

    • Sally Saucer

      I have never in my life seen such disrespect in a courtroom. This is not a five year old. She is an adult at 19. The judge should have admonished her and threatened her with contempt of court.

    • Erik Weinstein

      he confirms he is following trayvon. always denied running. you don’t know if that is huffing and puffing or wind(it was very windy) or a combination of the two. The so called huffing and puffing you claim started beforehe had gotten beyond 3 feet past his car. we know this because the so called huffing and puffing started before the car door chiming can be heard. he couldn’t have been more than a few feet past his car in order to for the car door chime to be heard on the 311 recording. This would mean that Zimmerman was huffing and puffing the second he got out of his car before he ran more than a few feet. That makes no sense.

      • gbpuzzler

        The “winded” sound ends after Zimmerman agrees to the dispatcher that he will stop following. That’s not consistent with the sound being caused by the wind alone.

  • Franken Stein

    Good grief, how did trayvon even have a conversation with this girl? She has trouble stringing more than a few words into a sentence.

    • wriprodir

      Trayvon was a master at stringing a few words together.

    • MoZeu

      No, she has trouble putting together the kind of formal, proper english which she knows is required in court. It is obvious the girl has she has had little to no occasion to use formal, proper english in her life. Her family speaks Creole and her friends speak street vernacular and apparently she hasn’t had access to very good schools. She may also have a speech impediment and appears to wear braces, but the bottom line is that if you think this girl can’t string together more than a few words, you weren’t paying attention.

      • Che Joubert

        The dialect of southern, especially Floridian blacks is a bit unique, but not so much so that Ms. Jeantel was terribly hard to understand. She did begin school the year ‘No Child Left Behind’ started, and many of those children, even white children who eventually go to private schools such as the one my daughter teaches at in Berkeley Ca, cannot read as well as they should. In addition, any idea that she was not on the phone with Trayvon is in itself idiotic, since the police checked her phone records and confirmed she was.

    • Chairman Meow

        You have already reverted back to your natural state of incomprehensibility. You claims are 100% false.

    • TX2Hi

      You like the rest are being tricked. This girl was never on the phone and the only reason some idiot thought it was a good idea to put her on the stand was to make fun of her and the case. She WAS NOT TM’s girlfriend. Daisha Mitchell is. And still the media plays games with the facts and people surrouNding the case. Why they brought her up is a mystery to me. She apparently only knew TM for ONE MONTH!

      • Che Joubert

        Ms Jeantel never said she was Martin’s girlfriend, she explained she was ‘only a friend.’ Also – phone records prove she was on the phone with Trayvon, and that was admitted in court. I don’t know what weird media TX2Hi watches or listens to, but maybe they’re on Mars.

        • Jorge Farelas

          The thing is that phone records show it was her number but not that she necessarily.. was the one speaking on the phone. She might have let someone use her phone to talk to trayvon. Who really knows?

          • gbpuzzler

            It was her cell phone, and she gave several depositions long before the trial. If she had let someone else use her phone to talk to Trayvon, don’t you think that she would have said so earlier, instead of putting herself through all that?

          • Jorge Farelas

            Not if she is protecting someone.

          • gbpuzzler

            Protecting someone how? How would someone need to be protected? Please explain or give a scenario.

          • Jorge Farelas

            Many have wondered why rachel or whoever was talking to tm didnt call the police. I have so many scenarios. One could be the fear of speaking with the authorities and being part of a trial process. Either rachel or someone else who was using her phone didnt want to go through that ordeal. If rachel isnt the one tm called then she may be protecting someone from going through what she went through.

          • gbpuzzler

            She had no useful information to give the police. She was 200 miles away and probably didn’t know the address or the name of the development to tell police where to find Trayvon. And you haven’t really given a reason why she would protect someone else from going through what she ultimately had to go through if she wasn’t the person talking to Travyon on her phone.

          • Jorge Farelas

            im not saying that Rachel was not the one speaking to Trayvon on the phone only that it is possible that it could have been someone else that used her phone and that person might be younger and scared to speak with police, lawyers, reporters, etc. The person might also have things about her life that she doesn’t want the whole world to know. Many people do not want to become witnesses because they fear that their lives will be exposed in order to discredit them either in court or the court of public opinion or both. If it were someone else that were on the phone it is possible that Rachel could have taken one for the team so to speak and went through the trial for her friend. I don’t know why that would be too hard of a concept to grasp. Again it could have been rachel talking to him on the phone but not necessarily. We know that trayvon was on his phone because they found his phone near his body so we can guarantee that Trayvon was the one talking on his phone. The same can’t be said of the other person.

          • gbpuzzler

            Actually, I DO grasp the concept. I just don’t buy it. I suppose it is remotely possible, but I think that it is highly unlikely. I remember (I think from her testimony) that she said that she found out that TM’s parents wanted her to become involved when they found out about the calls to/from her phone number close to the time of the shooting, and they had talked to her mother and her mother talked to her about it. If it had been someone else using her phone, the likely time for her to speak up about it was when her mother first spoke to her. We also know that she herself didn’t want to become a witness. What would make her think, at that moment, “Oh, I need to protect X by keeping my mouth shut and not saying that X was using my phone?” What would be so obvious to make her even think along those lines? And if it was someone else, how would she keep her story straight and believable through several depositions and the trial testimony?

            Is there some reason that you see her testimony as not particularly believable? If not, why would you even believe that this is a plausible possibility?

    • Che Joubert

      Rachel Jeantel gave a very helpful interview to a journalist explaining that the word ‘cracker’ was not a racial slur, but meant someone who pretends to be a cop or security guard, but who does not ask proper questions or really behave like a cop. Since the word ‘cracker’ originally meant ‘bragger’ or ‘show off’ and was only later applied to certain kinds of poor whites as a racial slur, Ms Jeantel’s explanation as to Trayvon’s use of the word to mean ‘pretender’, shows that the way they were using the word was close to its original meaning. She was just as clear about her speech problem, which she attributed to an ‘underbite.’ However, I don’t think racists listened to Ms Jeantel.

      • JanaKC

        bull sheet, we all know what cracker means

      • Jay C.

        Wrong. “Cracker” originally was about the White slave owners who used whips on the backs of slaves. Thus, a “cracking” sound, and the people administering the whips would be called “crackers.”

        • Jorge Farelas

          I think that explanation is one that is made up by racists to show off how they used to have blacks as slaves. I dont think its the original meaning. Why would a person especially if they were black use that as a racial slur? If that is the original definition then its not really derogatory.

      • Erik Weinstein

        so then why didn’t she explain that definition in court. because she knew she would have been torn to shreds.

        • gbpuzzler

          If I remember right, she did give that definition in court when asked.

    • rozkeith

      Our kids love kids, that parents may have some objections to. Trayvon’s parents had never met her, before his death. Trayvon had just reconnected to Rachel one month before. I do not think he had seen her since grade school. Everyone who wanted to understood her.

    • gbpuzzler

      She was nervous about testifying. Is that so difficult to understand?

  • bobby

    I love how developments of witness #8 (STAR WITNESS) is not really mentioned here. Dee Dee???? Francine????? It will all come out in court, as it should. This case has become too political and divided by race that it sickens me. Where is the black outrage when the Chicago teen that performed at our President’s Inauguration was gunned down. Where is the BLACK OUTRAGE for the many Black on Black crimes committed everyday. Where are the black leaders on this issue? Jesse Jackson?? Al Sharpton??? They turn tail and won’t even comment on these developments of the STAR WITNESS much less the crimes in black communities , prior to stirring the pot in Sanford and across America after this incident. Go on and riot when GZ is dismissed or acquitted because I will defend my home and business with force and “STAND MY GROUND” Grow up people, as an American GZ deserves his day in court and TM is not on trial here, but inconsistencies with this STAR WITNESS puts the state in an awkward position.

    • wriprodir

      Trayvon is not on trial. His trial ended when he attacked a guy with a gun. Guilty… dead.

      • rozkeith

        He attacked a person that followed, hold on… I will never get you to understand Trayvon’s rights. Live in darkness.

        • Guest

          First of all GZ passed TM who was standing in the yard located at 1460 and GZ drove to the club house located at 1111 where he parked and called the non emergency number, so TM seemed to follow GZ. Now I’m glad you admitted TM attacked GZ because you are saying what we all know, TM committed a Felony Assault. Now the first law that was broken that night was TM and his Felony Assault on GZ and that is the only law broken.

          • gbpuzzler

            When GZ was parked by the club house, TM had to walk passed him to continue on his way back to Brandy Green’s home.

      • Jorge Farelas

        You don’t know that he attacked someone. How are you so convinced of that? There are so many holes in Zimmerman’s story that it coudn’t have possibly happened. Please read my response to the Guest replying to rozketh below. The fight scene is so ridiculous that it couldn’t have happened.

        • Kiama Desmangles

          Thank you. It’s easy to speak for a dead person. I don’t know why people can’t see that. ( ^ o ^ ) /

      • gbpuzzler

        What qualified GZ to put TM on trial?

    • Jorge Farelas

      GZ had way more inconsistencies with his story or stories as it more accurately should be stated then with Rachel. The reason there isn’t more public outrage in the other cases where African Americans have been killed is because either a) they don’t know who the killer(s) are or b) they know who the killer(s) are and the killers are arrested. In the case of Trayvon Martin they knew who killed Trayvon Martin and that very night they let him go without any plans of an investigation, trial, or incarceration. At that time of Trayvon’s murder the only thing the police knew was that Trayvon was a 17 year old African American kid who was visting his dad at his dad’s fiancees house. Everything that people prejudice against TM now ie the pot smoking, the alleged text messages and Social network messages (I say alleged because both were hacked into and we don’t know if he actually texted any of those things), and the poses with him with the middle finger didn’t come until later so how at that point did they rule out that TM wasn’t stalked and killed??? They didn’t have that information that everyone uses to fuel their prejudices. It was because he was an African American kid. Had he been caucasian GZ would have been in prison that night. Now at least GZ is known for what he did. In a sense he is in a bigger prison now.

  • http://twitter.com/rickroberts Rick Roberts

    She said, “You want that, too?” That tells me she had been coached.

    • Marc Vellat

      Yes, it’s funny how nobody has seemed to pick up on that until now – when GZ’s attorney tried to emphasize this point the prosecutor jumped right in with an objection to prevent the jury from hearing that…

    • Jorge Farelas

      What was this in reference to?

  • tuffgrrrrl

    This girl needs some coaching. She mumbles and does not elaborate. I understand her clearly but, some people will think that she is speaking funny and it will distract from her testimony. She is very laid back and calls Trayvon “aight”. I understand that this means that he was basically cool and that she liked him but, many will not understand that terminology. Why did they let her give testimony without some basic coaching?? She does not know how to communicate well at all. When she says that she had “high blood pressure” I believe that she means that she was stressed out. When she says that she “wasn’t gonna go” to the funeral, I believe that she is saying that she did not plan on going because she didn’t want to deal with everything but because she is not a good speaker and she uses terms that are slangish the meaning would not be clear to everyone. Based on people I know who speak this way, if they told me this then those things are what I would infer from her statements.

    • wriprodir

      Thanks for the “translation.” You’re delusional.

    • gbpuzzler

      The prosecution should have spent some time with her before the trial started to coach her, but didn’t. This may have been partly because of the distance – Miami is over 200 miles away from Sanford – but it was negligent of them not to do it anyway.

  • tommie451

    DD corroborated George’s story. She said Trayvon told her about George: “He got a problem.” Meanwhile George said Trayvon asked him: “You got a problem?” (no) “Well do you now!” (pow) – Also since Trayvon was tired from travelling from the T back to the T her testimony supports the position that Trayvon made it all the way back to his father’s house and then “started walking back again” to confront George.

    • gbpuzzler

      Rachel did not corroborate what Zimmerman said at all. For one thing, the words she has each of them saying are different, but that is the least important difference. Nothing in her testimony supports that he started walking back again to confront Zimmerman, just that he reported seeing him again. There was no “pow” in her report. What she reported was hearing the phone fall into the grass and Trayvon saying “Get off, get off!”", probably because Zimmerman had tried to grab him or in some other way interfere with him.

    If the state is depending on this testimony as the cornerstone of their case, they are in trouble.Barrack and Jesse and the posse are going to tar and feather them for sure.

    • reflectedsafe0

      The state is also depending on showing through GPS that GZ was not where he stated he was. What will cook his goose is that during the struggle. DD attempted to call another 2 times and TEXT. That is conclusive enough to show that TM was legally defending himself and GZ CONTINUED to follow

      • ahkang

        They were all over the media, and still being echoed by fools the likes of you. Did your pea brain fail to put together that this witness was pretty much all the state had in their alleged case? The problem for you is that in a court of law in the USA you still have to prove your case. But why are you so late to the party? The rest of the world has moved on.

        • gbpuzzler

          Rachel Jeantel was by no means all that the state had. Most importantly, they had the facts that Zimmerman’s claims differ from the facts in important details, that it would have been almost impossible for the altercation to have happened in the way that he claimed, that he couldn’t have simply been on his way back to his truck because Trayvon was still on the phone for more than a minute after Zimmerman hung up. Zimmerman’s injuries are slight, do not back up his claim of head-beating, and do not make a case for dearly force being needed. Zimmerman had a legal right to fight back in self-defense, but had no legal right to use deadly force because of minor injuries or to avoid minor injuries. Most of those facts were brought out during the trial, but then the prosecution utterly failed to bring them up, or explain how they related to the charges against Zimmerman, during their closing. They also failed to bring up difficulties with some of the claims made by defense witnesses during their cross-examination. How is it that my “pea brain” is aware of these things and your allegedly much larger brain doesn’t know them?

      So she does nothing but lie? Most every witness on behalf of NO_LIMIT_NI66A” seems to have no compunction about lying in the least.

            You might want to re-read the responses. Kevin R. is calling you out for a “racists comment of watermelon juice.” Dr. Obvious points out to Kevin that it was, in fact, Arizona Watermelon juice and therefore not a racist comment as Kevin R. claimed.

    She does not sound like she is on drugs. When she gives certain info they block it out. Plus she is a teenager so they talk a little different especially from florida with their accents. I feel so bad for her as she was the last person to hear him. I cannot wait for all the truth about GZ comes out. If you listen to witness 9 she says GZ is racist and doesnt like black people. I also think it is GZ sister or for sure it is a family member. She is a witness at the trial and at the bail hearing they mentioned witness 9 and that it would be bad for GZ and make him look very bad and may affect the outcome of the trial.

          When I hear people on drugs, I assume they are on drugs (I dont assume only black people are on drugs nor do I assume only black people are mistreated by the police nor do I think only white people are capable of being racist).
          .
          This case is very useful to show just how racist black people can be.
          .
          Recall the FAMU hazing incident (where an unarmed black man was beaten to death by fellow band members just for being a poorly coordinated black person)………How many months did it take for an arrest in the FAMU hazing incident? Why no outcry?
          .
          Cuz when blacks kill blacks, there is no white guy to hate……

          I guess when you hear about white people all you can think of is white sheets and you cannot imagine a white vicitm of black hate (is that cuz in your hateful mind yo9u only see white people as evil? me thinks so)

      • Akil Harvey

        She sounds like the investigator has given her a $izzurp glass to sip on while she is being interviewed………..
        .
        I like how she says about the funeral, “I wasnt gonna go” (future tense)……why didnt you go to the funeral? high blood pressure? LOL in a teen? she was out buying shoes the next day…..she waited weeks to call anyone to tell them about this phone call she had with “NO_LIMIT_NI66A”…..she must have thought she could go to jail for being an accomplice to the jacking of the NW guy (if he said he wanted to head home and she said he was just a ‘mama boy’ as she saw him and she encouraged illegal behavior, she could have been both guilty in her gut and in actuallity
        .
        that is as laughable as trayvon having brain damage and liver damage from his drug habit at the age of 17….

          you’re not very intelligent or you would not be jumping to berate this young woman.

          • audieho

            I’ll berate this young woman if I want. She had access to a free public education on my dime and failed to take advantage of it so I will be forced to support her illiterate ass for the rest of her grotesque life. I could be wrong. Perhaps she will turn her life around, become well-educated and support herself, but I assure you, statistics are on my side.

            i see tray tray’s girlfriend was on the large side (oh wait, they have been lying about who she is for over a year)…..oh wait, that wasnt his girlfriend ?!?!?!???!!snap, the racist blacks have been a lying to us for over a year (she isnt 16? wow, another lie out of the mouth of the ghettopotomous, but we should believe she tells the truff when she wants to, but who knows when that is or when she is just being self serving).
            .
            you know who the racists are? those who believe her because of the color of her skin, not by the content of her character (I am with dr king on this one ven if all the black racists are not)

        • gbpuzzler

          She didn’t encourage him to fight GZ, she encouraged him to run away. That’s not illegal.

      • Kevin R

        I’m sure every commenter hear knows this woman and knows the whole story, so why bother with a trial.

    • Dr. Zaius

      I don’t know about whether other witnesses are asked about being on drugs, but that’s a pretty standard practice in legal proceedings.  A witness who is on drugs (not necessarily illegal) could later claim that their testimony was not accurate due to the influence of said drugs.  Likewise, a witness is also asked if she has a medical condition that could affect her testimony, which was the immediate preceding question.

      • Akil Harvey

        Maybe they only ask if she is on drugs if she sounds like she is on drugs and is unable to answer the simplest most leading of all questions? is she asked any questuions tha are not led by the investigator?
        .
        I dont call her dd….I call her…..”You want that, too?”…..it is among her most obvious gaffes…..He has obviously been leading her for quite some time (he stays away from subjects that detract from the narrative of the case (the many lieas of the crump a dump law firm and trayvon lying parents)…….
        .
        DD is NOT Trayvon’s girlfriend! She has another boyfriend (though tray may get the friends with benefits package……this is never investigated).
        .
        “Trayvon was your boyfriend?” “yeah, we was getting there”
        .
        She cant even muster much of a defense of his character…..”he was arright” not much of a ringing endorsement…..
        .
        among the most telling is where she cant stop herself from mentioning her significant guilt (did she encourage trayvon to jack the nw guy like she did with the bur driver tray attacked?)…….this tells more about their relationship thatn the investgator ever tries to get……they used to date, but she got tired of his mama boy attitude? he wasnt tough enough for her, so she found another boyfriend who jacked better than “NO_LIMIT_NI66A”……..I wonder why the media never really discusses how trayvon portrayed himself to the world?
        .
        I wonder why so many have bene so eager to lie for trayvon?
        .
        his football coach claimed he quit football after 10 years of practice (with no mention of how 53 absences from school might have affected his eligibility or his grades)………

        Tracey martin is disingenuous in that he acts like his son is so defenseless without a weapon even though he knows his son played football from the age of 5 (Football players are like players of dungeons and dragons….mostly unable to defend themselves and frequently the targets of physical attack from larger people …..just like most mathletes and choir singers are usually the school bullies)

          Learn how to talk you ignorant piece of racist shit. You sound like you have Self-esteem problems and Insecurity issues!!! Why are you so hateful is it because you got a little dick, your fat, your ugly, or do you just hate yourself that bad that you have to talk down or belittle other people to make yourself feel good.

            It’s YOU’RE not YOUR! But thanks for making me chuckle with the “a boarded” comment!

        • gbpuzzler

          “He has obviously been leading her for quite some time (he stays away from subjects that detract from the narrative of the case…”

          It’s the job of the prosecutor to help the jury follow the narrative of the case. But don’t you worry, the defense attorney spent many hours distracting them from that narrative.

          “(the many lieas of the crump a dump law firm and trayvon lying parents)…….”

          The many lies here are the ones told by GZ and his friends and family.

          “DD is NOT Trayvon’s girlfriend! She has another boyfriend (though tray may get the friends with benefits package……this is never investigated).”

          Why is there any reason to believe that they were “friends with benefits” and why is this even relevant to the case?

          “among the most telling is where she cant stop herself from mentioning her significant guilt (did she encourage trayvon to jack the nw guy like she did with the bur driver tray attacked?)……”

          Her significant guilt? LIke the way that she keeps urging him to run away from the creepy guy?

          Despite the bus driver allegation being much repeated, there is NO EVIDENCE that it was true. If it was, he would have had a police record and/or it would have been in his school records. Neither was the case.

          “.I wonder why the media never really discusses how trayvon portrayed himself to the world? ”

          Do you really mean the way that Trayvon actually portrayed himself to the world, or the way that zimmy, his friends, family, attorneys, and a bunch of racist followers tried to portray Trayvon Martin to the world with their lies?

          “I wonder why so many have bene so eager to lie for trayvon?”

          And I wonder why so many have been so eager to lie for zimmy.

        • gbpuzzler

          “his football coach claimed he quit football after 10 years of practice (with no mention of how 53 absences from school might have affected his eligibility or his grades)………”

          He had multiple tardys, not absences. And how could something that happened 2 years later affect his eligibility at age 14? In addition, he was in a kid’s football league (Pop Warner or something similar), not on his school team, so school issues would not have affected his eligibility. And my understanding is that his father was his coach.

          “Tracey martin is disingenuous in that he acts like his son is so defenseless without a weapon even though he knows his son played football from the age of 5 (Football players are like players of dungeons and dragons….mostly unable to defend themselves and frequently the targets of physical attack from larger people …..just like most mathletes and choir singers are usually the school bullies)”

          Although zimmy was shorter than Trayvon, zimmy was larger because he weighed 46 pounds more. Trayvon had not played football in over 2 years before the attack, and football does not teach someone to fight back against a surprise attack by a stranger. In addition, kids’ fooaball leagues group kids by both weight and age, so he would have been unaccustomed to fighting back against someone much heavier. And of course, none of this matters when the other person has a gun and is more than prepared to use it.

          What was disingenuous was the pretense that zimmy was helpless against Trayvon even though he was 46 pounds heavier, had been taking martial arts lessons for over a year, and had worked as a bouncer.

          “Tracey martin is disingenuous in that he acts like his son is so defenseless without a weapon even though he knows his son played football from the age of 5 (Football players are like players of dungeons and dragons….mostly unable to defend themselves and frequently the targets of physical attack from larger people …..just like most mathletes and choir singers are usually the school bullies)”

          This statement is filled with irrelevancies. First of all, Trayvon Martin was playing in a football league, not on his school football team. Football leagues are set up with several divisions, so that each division contains kids who are fairly similar in age and weight. The kids won’t play either on the same team as, or against, kids who are much larger. So, there is no requirement that kids who play be big or imposing.

          Second, the questions that you suggested (whether Trayvon was frequently picked on by other kids and whether he was able to hold his own in a fight) are not particularly relevant to the case. We know that Zimmerman had chosen to follow him, first in his truck and then on foot. For whatever reason, it is clear that Zimmerman chose to go after him. Trayvon certainly wasn’t picking a fight with him for no reason. And it is not realistic to expect that Trayvon could hold his own against someone who was about to shoot him.

          What is more relevant are the issues that go to Zimmerman’s defense: that Trayvon was brutally beating him to the point where he had reason to fear being killed or maimed, and that Zimmerman had no defense other than to shoot Trayvon. Both these claims are patently false. There is no way to know for sure whether Trayvon had the ability to severely beat him, but he clearly did not. Zimmerman’s injuries, a bloody nose and some tiny wounds, were minor and inconsequential. And it is also ridiculous for him to claim that there is nothing that he could have done to fight back other than using his gun, when he was much heavier, had been taking martial arts lessons for over a year, and had worked as a bouncer.

      • Kevin R

        Good answer but I suspect others were not asked about being on drugs especially GZ superstar himself. Why wasn’t his blood tested, I heard GZ was on drugs (prescription medicines) that had side effects that may have impaired his often distorted judgements ( read about his conflicts with former girlfriend, his security job in which he threw a woman) and consequently fired, his confrontation with police a couple of years earlier. At least the KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Power organizations, and radical neo-cons believe him and that’s a start I guess.

        • Black Racism

          say hi to the new black pansies for me (they had the cutest signs that said ‘boycott white businesses’ and the illegal sign that said ‘wanted: dead or alive’).
          .
          So, you are protesting a supposed vigilante act by committing a vigilante act?

        • Ssed Doga

          Kevin, he had issues years ago ( when he was not much older then martin). He was on prescription medication. he admitted he had it, he did not try to hide it. and if you are saying that the medication was the cause of his unreasonable ( in your eyes) behaviour.. then he wouldnt be guilty of murder 2 or manslaughter becuase he was under the influence of a legal drug.

          • gbpuzzler

            What we don’t know (because he wasn’t tested) was whether Zimmerman had also had, say, a couple of beers before going out and getting into an altercation with TM, which might have interacted with his prescription meds and further impaired his judgment. By law, they couldn’t require him to testify at the trial,and he chose not to do so,although tapes of several of his interviews were played at the trial.

    • Liquidmark

      Because she is testifying under oath, so they have to establish that she isn’t under the influence of anything that would affect the validity of her testimony. That’s why they asked if she was threatened or promised anything.

      • Lynda523

        I’m a little confused here, they asked Dee Dee if she was on any drugs?  I don’t hear them asking the other witnesses this question.  Makes me think about how Trayvon was tested for drugs but not Zimmerman.  What is going on here?

      @Arishia Actually that kind of question, along with the others, is part of establishing her competence to provide that testimony for the record. And perhaps this prosecutor has information that led him to need to establish that point on that day.

    • Kevin R

      George Zimmerman should have been tested for drugs that very night. It is relevant and goes to state of mind.

        They don’t test people for drugs or alcohol if there is a head wound.

          No, they frequently avoid giving certain medications (like many pain killers) if there is a head wound. It doesn’t prevent them from testing people for drugs or alcohol

      You know that in court its wow you lied to the police but did you know the police lie and manipulate the circumstances around investigations themselves. And then they come into court and say they are telling the truth. I thought the truth is the truth and you stand by the truth. But that is just wishful thinking.

      She doesnt want a single word to be understood since she is perjuring herself throughout most of the interview! She knows she is a conspirator in the jacking of the neighborhood watch guy and she could be convicted if she told the turth in a manner people could understand

          • gbpuzzler

            There is no evidence that Trayvon went after GZ with the intention of attacking him, let alone that Rachel J told him to do so. But you believe what you want with no evidence because you like to, and then you can’t stand it when someone points out that you have no evidence for your claim, so apparently the only response that you have is to threaten the other person.
