I wish I could make this up! SMH…
Zimmerman strikes again! According to CNN, George Zimmerman’s lawyers released info from his murder victim Trayvon Martin’s cell phone. It includes text messages discussing drugs and guns.
Lead defense attorney Mark O’ Mara said that they will try to use the evidence against Trayvon if prosecutors attempted to attack Zimmerman’s character.
TOO LATE! HE DID THAT WHEN HE PULLED THE TRIGGER!
One of the text messages includes Martin texting someone about his mother putting him out of the house explaining the reasoning being that “da police caught me outta skool.” This was a text from November of 2011 (Trayvon Martin was murdered Feb. 26, 2012)
Trayvon Martin’s family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, had this to say:
“Is the defense trying to prove Trayvon deserved to be killed by George Zimmerman because (of) the way he looked? If so, this stereotypical and closed-minded thinking is the same mindset that caused George Zimmerman to get out of his car and pursue Trayvon, an unarmed kid who he didn’t know. The pretrial release of these irrelevant red herrings is a desperate and pathetic attempt by the defense to pollute and sway the jury pool.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. This is a crock of bull! You all know the story. The police told the man not to get out of the car. Zimmerman ignored the dispatcher and tried to be a rent-a-cop like Day Day in Friday. Zimmerman was looking for trouble and looking for an excuse.
As for these text messages in Trayvon’s phone. They were old pictures. What do they have to do with a teenager being followed and shot in the chest by a grown man? This is just a smear campaign against a child. What a shame.
Marissa Alexander was sentenced twenty years just for firing a warning shot to scare her abusive husband, who admitted to beating on her as well his other children’s mothers several times. She was not allowed to use the Stand Your Ground defense.
This is ridiculous. Florida cut the crap.
Was this “evidence” necessary to release to the public?
