The bitch is slanting her testimony. And outright lying too! There was only 1 gunshot. Her testimony doesn't count for shit!
If you've been paying any attention you would already know that on one of the recorded 911 calls it sounded like two gunshots because of the echo or canyon effect.

The now famous DeeDee is testifying presently. Ooooh, this might be painful.

<quoted text> No you fool but an echo is an echo hardly a 3 shot burst. Besides a puny 9 at point blank range near the ground touching the bulk of a body would muffle what little noise there was. I think youidiots must be confusing her testimony with the Mozambique Drill! Next news you will have some Zulu tribal chief on the stand swearing he heard a barrage of machine gun fire hahaha. Oh I guess that's possible since there were houses nearby hahaha. GFY!
OHHH sounds like we are getting upset! Why does it sound like two gunshots on the 911 tape? One was an echo... an echo strong enough to get picked up by the mic on the phone and recorded on the 911 call. Not inconceivable, and actually likely, that neighbor Jayne heard three shots. Thats twice now.

Except for the FACT that martin ran FIRST, was chased into the back yard, then HAD to fight when there was no other option left.
Do you honestly think that a 28 year old, short, overweight, asthmatic guy can run down a 17 year old, tall, skinny football player?

The fight didn't happen until Zimmerman gave up the chase. Martin came from behind as Zimmerman was going back to his truck.

Wow that sow #8 has got a NFL 21" neck on her. Hahaha Ol Trayboi like em a little bit massive!
Yeah she got off to a rough start but has hit her stride and is making Don West look stupid presently.

The phone minutes presented by the defense prove that she was on the phone with Martin just as neighbors were beginning to hear loud voices in the common area behind the town homes. Also of interest is that Trayvon told her that he was speaking from the area of the mailboxes which are next to the clubhouse in a covered kiosk.

Was he hiding from George there? Did George drive to the South end of Twin Trees Ln turn around and then encounter the youth again near the cut through?

*West is lost, just objecting to his own question. LMAO.

Your filthy language and location prove that not only aren't you American, you're not Patriotic and you are living in a foreign country.

I am not liberal and it's a lie to say Americans will have their fire arms taken away, UNLESS they are nuts or commit murders and other crimes with them. You obviously are foreign and don't know Our Constitution.

As one newsperson noted, Rachel owns West. West became more and more confused and earlier the Judge pointed out that untl Rachel came on the stand, he had not complained about a visual obstruction. The Judge has West's number and he looks abashed each time she addresses him.

It's encouraging to see some posters explain to the riff raff with the filthy mouths what is actually happening in the court room. Their bigotry shows up their lack of reasoning.

Not non sense, its the truth. Guns are not defensive tools. They are offensive weapons. Why else would you have one? Because you want to be able to pull it out and hope the other guy doesnt also have one, regardless of the situation.

Let's not forget about the "offensive weapon" that TM had and was using when GZ defended himself.

You sir, apparently do not know the lengths that some “frustrated control freaks” will go to circumvent (infringe upon) our individual right to keep and bear arms.

“The ordinance gives owners of weapons or "large capacity magazines" 90 days to remove the items from city limits, permanently modify them to not fall under the law's definition, or surrender them to police for disposal. Violation of the ordinance will be considered a misdemeanor, that could include up to six months in jail or a fine of between $500 and $1,000.”

"President Obama’s hometown of Chicago started the movement late last year by enacting a $25 tax on new firearm purchases, which went into effect on April 1. Cook County stopped just short of adding a levy on ammunition."

"In February, Rep. Linda T. Sanchez, California Democrat, and 26 of the most uber-liberals in the House introduced a bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code to create an excise tax of 10 percent on any concealable gun in order to empower Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to establish a firearms buy-back grant program."

Care to elaborate? Exactly how? The defense is scrambling, rambling, going off on tangents, and really appear to be confused and unprepared. What case are you watching?

Do you actually think she helped the prosecution after she admitted to lying TWICE while on the stand??? What case are YOU watching?

"Lied" about what exactly? 1) Her age because she did not want her name released publicly. 2) the reason she did not attend Martins funeral, because she did not want to see his body. Both immaterial facts, which she has given thorough reasoning.

The Prosecution has not labeled her that...that was the smear-rag. There are many other witnesses and hard evidence. If it was such a disaster, why is the defense scambling?
