Mar 19, 2012 Full story: New York Daily News 29,898

ORLANDO, Fla. -- College students around Florida rallied Monday to demand the arrest of a white neighborhood watch captain who shot an unarmed black teen last month, though authorities may be hamstrung by a state law that allows people to defend themselves with deadly force.

Hey! Zazz,
I bet you and the brothers have been facing east and praying five times a day that those two Boston bombers were white. Come on, tell the truth.
Evil comes in many colors. However, I assumed they were white and hoped they were foreign. I did think if they were foreign that they would be Arabs or Egyptians.

They were white but regardless they were evil.

I'm glad they at least got one alive so he can be interrogated. I think he'll be more likely to talk than his older brother.

Their parents and an aunt think it is "a setup".

The uncle had the good sense to be horrified about what they had done and to express his love of our country and appreciation for all the opportunities afforded him.

Evil, evil, evil.

How sick that the guy went to classes the next two days and tweeted like a normal teen. Evil, evil, evil.

I still don't know about the seriously injured but so many of them lost limbs and had other major injuries. Evil, evil, evil.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families and friends. This is heartbreaking.

God bless America. Don't fcuk with us.

Defense adds five additional witnesses

Miami-Dade School Police Officers????

O'Mara pulls no punches in responding to BDLR's Shakespeare-laced excuse for a Response to Motion to Sanction:
Bernie knows all about sanctions...he is no stranger to being sanctioned.

----------

In his reply, O'Mara says de la Rionda's March filing was full of "scurrilous and unfounded personal attacks," and should be struck from the record. O'Mara also asks the court to "enter whatever additional sanctions it deems appropriate."

"Such behaviors have, in similar cases, subjected the offending attorney to sanctions and disciplinary proceedings," O'Mara writes.

O'Mara also filed a series of affidavits in support of another request aimed at penalizing the state: He wants the state to pay more than $4,500 in costs associated with depositions which were delayed when de la Rionda objected to them being videotaped.

The affidavits, signed by several prominent Orlando-area attorneys — including F. Wesley "Buck" Blankner, of Jaeger & Blankner; Michael LaFay, of NeJame Law; and Richard Hornsby, a frequent local-TV legal commentator — say that the $400 hourly rate O'Mara listed in his request for sanctions is reasonable.

Other paperwork filed Friday by the defense included:

• A request to add five more civilian witnesses to the defense's list. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson's deadline for adding witnesses has passed, but Zimmerman's lawyers say there is "no prejudice" to the state in adding the new witnesses.

The witnesses were not identified by name in the defense motion.

• A demand for any remaining data from Trayvon Martin's cell phone that hasn't been turned over yet.

• A demand for any "cleaned up, edited and/or enhanced version" of the 911 call which captured the screams which led up to the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Feb. 26 in Sanford.

That request may stem from comments made by Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump: Police claim Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, listened to the call and said the screams weren't his son's, but Crump has said Tracy Martin actually told police he couldn't identify the voice, due to distortion, but later heard a cleaned-up version and was sure it was Trayvon.

The new motions are set to be argued among several others at a hearing Tuesday. Trial in the case is currently set for June 10.

"Florida Captain to Get Rank Back After Facebook Rant"

http://www.firehouse.com/news/10928275/ ... ebook-rant

From the article:

April 24--A Miami-Dade firefighter demoted last year for ranting on Facebook about the Trayvon Martin case should get his captain's rank back, an arbitrator has ruled, rebuffing Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who had insisted on the punishment.

"Mayor Gimenez testified that he interceded in the instant case because the news media had given Mr. Beckmann's Facebook posting nationwide and intensive coverage," the arbitrator wrote.

Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, is a longtime employee of Miami-Dade's public housing and community development department. Fulton, who met briefly with Gimenez last year after Beckmann's demotion, has taken an unpaid leave of absence since February.

Also

On his personal Facebook page, Beckmann bashed prosecutor Angela Corey, who charged George Zimmerman of Sanford with second-degree murder in Trayvon's death. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense.

"Listening to Prosecutor Corey blow herself and her staff for five minutes before pre-passing judgment on George Zimmerman," Beckmann's post read.

"The state seeks reelection again, truth aside. I and my co-workers could rewrite the book on whether urban youths are victims of racist profiling or products of their failed, sh--bag, ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents, but like Mrs. Corey, we speak only the truth.

“With 500 jury summons expected to go out for George's Trial, is an unbiased jury possible?” So far in a recent poll 57% say NO!
----------

Jury notices will be going out soon to 500 people throughout the county.

But is it possible to have an unbiased jury decide the case?

News 13 legal analyst Mark Nejame said attorneys have a tough job ahead of them when picking a jury for the June trial.
An acquittal could spark protest, and it could have a long-term effect on Sanford and Seminole County, where the jurors live.
News 13 asked Nejame if that could factor into their decision.

“It can be a factor without question, and I think it is going to be incumbent on the parties, and the judge in this case, to have a sequestered jury the entire time. I think there will be people attempting to get to the jurors, through intimidation, by putting out information that might help bias or prejudice them.”

Zimmerman’s defense team could have asked for a change of venue, moving the case to a different county, but decided not to because they felt the case was too widely known for a change of venue to really have an effect.

Yo yo yo! I be a professor of Thuganomics at FU! Where be my reparations? I needs to supplement my income derived from welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, and all kinds of wiggity wiggity whack entitlements, yo! Even though the white people was nice enough to bring my ancestors to civilization from Africa where I'd otherwise be dealing with lions, malaria, forced circumcision, the sort of diseases we encounter only when we play Oregon Trail in the 5th Grade (which I repeated twice) and genocide amongst my own people; even though the white man be nice enough to let me stay once that white boy John Deere hauled off and made me obsolete: the white man be owing me more reparations because the trillions in entitlements isn't enough. Also, bullying be bad unless I be doing it to a white guy. Then it be good. Don't try and defend yourself, white people. We be having the media and the government on our side. We can do all the bullying we want. Besides, everybody be knowing that bullying is media code for the gay agenda anyway. We will continue to bullying you because you won't stand up for yourselves. Hell, the State be actually putting that white boy on trial. First OJ, now this! We own you white people. Word life!

George Zimmerman to appear in court for Trayvon Martin case

Friday, April 26, 2013, 4:23 PM

SANFORD --

Attorneys in the Case Against George Zimmerman are preparing for a key hearing in the case Tuesday and we have confirmed George Zimmerman will be in the courtroom.

Zimmerman’s defense attorneys filed a whole stack of paperwork Friday because it is the last chance for attorneys on both sides of the case to bring up matters they want discussed on Tuesday.

Tuesday will be a big day. A whole series of issues will be discussed. But in motions filed just Friday, Zimmerman’s defense team wants to make sure they have everything the state does and it centers around 911 calls made the night Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman.

The defense said it wants any and all remaining enhanced 911 calls. They said Trayvon Martin’s family attorney Benjamin Crump claimed there’s a call that reveals it was Trayvon yelling for help. But originally, Trayvon’s father said it was not his son yelling for help. This could be a key piece of evidence in the case and the defense wants everything the state has before they go to trial.

The state also filed this paperwork, making it clear they want Zimmerman to appear in court Tuesday. They want the court to ask Zimmerman himself, not through an attorney, about any intentions he might have in using Florida's Stand Your Ground statute as a defense in trial. Zimerman's attorneys waived his right to a Stand Your Ground Hearing originally scheduled to happen before the trial. His defense team said he will be there.

State wants court inquiry of George Zimmerman

Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 7:31 PM

SANFORD --

George Zimmerman's defense has released several new documents, most notably a motion from prosecutors, who want to know whether or not there will still be a "Stand Your Ground" hearing.

Zimmerman's lawyers requested a hearing last year to determine if Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law applied in the case. Zimmerman claimed he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012. Martin was unarmed, but Zimmerman said the teen attacked him.

But in March, the defense said it did not need the two weeks in April that the court had set aside for the "Stand Your Ground" hearing.

Still, the prosecution wants to make sure George Zimmerman understands this.

They are requesting Zimmerman personally appear in court next Tuesday to be questioned, to make sure he understands that if there is no Stand Your Ground hearing, Zimmerman can't use that defense to get his second-degree murder charge dropped once the trial starts.

Tom Sadaka, an attorney with legal analyst Mark NeJame’s law firm, says the state is working to firm up its case against George Zimmerman.

“And I think the state is trying to get some type of predictability, from the defense with the assistance of the court, to say where they will be going with their defense in this case,” Sadaka said.

Other new documents included notices that the state took depositions between April 16 and 18 of the following witnesses:

Robert Zimmerman Sr.(George's father)
Gladys Zimmerman (George's mother)
Robert Zimmerman Jr.(George's brother)
Mark Osterman
Sondra Osterman
Frank Taffee
Unnamed "Witness V."

The next court hearing in the case is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 30, at the Seminole County Courthouse.
