Florida vs. Zimmerman: Cop Wannabe Statements To Investigators Should Convict Him

If you have been following the George Zimmerman murder trial and are supporting the family of Trayvon Martin, chances are you’ve had a few cocktails at happy hour today in celebration of Rachel Jeantel having concluded her testimony of behalf of the state. Witness #8 as she is often called, was supposed to be a ” star witness” for the state, but the sassy, attitudinal, and disrespectful 19-year-old woman turned out to be a tremendous liability for the prosecution. Though Ms. Jeantel persistently stuck to her story that Trayvon told her he was being followed by George Zimmerman the night he was shot to death, other aspects of her testimony were like a gift to Zimmerman’s defense with her being cited for a number of inconsistencies which very well may create a credibility issue for the state in the eyes of the jury. Ms. Jeantel’s testimony was like a playground for the defense to toy with and pick holes in. The woman also displayed what appears to be serious developmental issues and the defense took full advantage of the situation, in essence, turning the state’ “star witness” into what many considered to be a witness for Mr. Zimmerman’s defense. Additionally, the state has lost on the “reas0nable doubt” battle ground with essentially every witness they have presented to the jury so far in this trial. State witnesses have come forward with only very thin circumstantial evidence and the defense has been able to make it’s case by creating doubt about their individual testimonies. The constant theme appears to be state witnesses testifying to what they believe to be facts, only to have the defense team produce depositions contradicting what the state’ witnesses are now testifying to before the jury. So far, there has been no smoking gun by the state’ case and have many worried that George Zimmerman may even walk if more culpable evidence isn’t produce in this case. Zimmerman’s defense team has done their job in creating the required reasonable doubt that could free their client. However, some observers believe that the state has already won it’s case through the testimony of the primary officer who arrived on the scene the night Trayvon Martin was killed. Sanford Police Officer Anthony Raimondo testified that upon arriving on the Trayvon Martin shooting scene, he found the teen lying face down on the ground with his hands underneath him, and between his chest and the ground. That testimony should prove to be critical because Zimmerman is recorded during his initial interview with Sanford Police describing how after he shot Trayvon, he climbed on the youth’s back, pulled his arms away from his body, and held them down in an attempt to control him. Zimmerman even repeated that account a few days after the shooting when he gave police investigators a walkthrough of the crime scene (see featured image for this article). The Testimony of a sworn police officer who strongly discounted Zimmerman’s version, should weigh heavily during deliberations. The account that Zimmerman gave didn’t settle well with some of the investigators on the crime scene that night, some of whom went on record to say they believed he lied to police regarding what actually happened. In fact Sanford Police Detective Serreno (the original investigator) wanted George Zimmerman jailed that night, but Florida’s Attorney General drove over 50 miles to Sanford to intervene, and resulted in Zimmerman being allowed to go home. The disparity in the interpretation of the law (stand your ground) and detective Serreno spiraled out of control and he was eventually removed as the lead detective in the Trayvon Martin shooting. Some of the state’ witnesses somewhat depict Zimmerman as the aggressor, but the defense team did a hell of a job creating doubt during cross examination of each and every witness the state produced and it’s no guarantee their testimonies collectively are sufficient to convict Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin. The fact that Zimmerman obviously lied to police demonstrates that he himself acknowledges that he did something wrong, and tried to mislead the police. I mean after Trayvon died did he mysteriously tuck the kid’s arms back underneath his body, and if so, why? There is enough evidence proving that Zimmerman lied and we can only hope and pray that this jury is astute enough to pick up on it during their deliberations. Zimmerman supporters have tried to rationalize that when the human body suffers head trauma, often times they become delusional, incoherent, and confused which may account for the inaccuracies in his initial statements to police. The jury must also conclude the improbable plausibility of such rationalizations and see Zimmerman’s account for nothing short of a lie.
