Zimmerman Trial Update: July 9th 2013

[AP/Yahoo] Finally an expert with gunshot wounds testified that forensic evidence is consistent with Zimmerman’s account of what happened on a rainy night when Martin was shot to death.

The witness was Dr. Vincent Di Maio

…said that the trajectory of the bullet and gun powder on Martin’s body support Zimmerman’s version that Martin was on top of him …The pathologist also said it was likely Martin was conscious for 10 to 15 seconds after the shooting as a reserve supply of oxygen ran out of his body and during that time it was possible for him to have moved his arms. Zimmerman’s account that he had placed Martin’s arms out to his sides after the shooting contradicts a photo taken after the shooting that shows Martin’s arms under his body … Di Maio also explained that if clothes taken into evidence are wet and packaged in plastic bags, and not paper bags, it can ruin the samples … Defense attorneys believe DNA evidence found on Martin’s hooded sweatshirt and undershirt was degraded since the clothing wasn’t packaged properly.

Lately the prosecution has been trying to prove that the screams for help came from Martin, not Zimmerman – and their case is weak, at best. Martin’s father initially stated he couldn’t tell if the screams came from his son, but later changed that. Last Friday, Martin’s mother and brother also took the witness stand to say the voice was Martin’s.

Sondra Osterman and LeAnne Benjamin, friends of George Zimmerman, listened to the 911 tape and concluded that it was Zimmerman’s screams; however during a police interview Zimmerman himself stated that it did not sound like himself, but later he and his family decided the screams were his.

hand_point2  If the prosecutions only solid evidence is who screamed for help and a pathologist stated that the evidence was not handled properly to prove that Martin had Zimmerman’s blood on his clothes – this man should be considered a benefit of the doubt. DNA evidence has prevented innocent people from going to prison, and those sent to prison before DNA has been used freed. Now the prosecution wants to put this man behind bars with the flimsy evidence of who has screamed for help. Background of Martin clearly shows he had been in trouble with stealing and drugs before his death, and even at his death was under suspension from school. The lame evidence, which the racial lynch mob took to the streets in protest immediately after Martin’s death wore hooded sweatshirts and carried a soft drink and bag of Skittles – saying that Martin was an innocent person who was attacked by a racist bad person.

The wonderful thing about our justice system, constitutional law; well at least it used to be, is that a person is innocent until proven guilty. The media created a racial fervor instead of reporting in an objective and neutral manner, at least until some evidence was forthwith; and the public racial lynching mob hit the streets depicting Martin as an innocent victim of racism is unacceptable. Even worse, despicable celebrities like Roseanne Barr [and Spike Lee] posted hateful messages [and incorrect information] in cyberspace and providing the address of Zimmerman, part of the racial lynch mob across the nation. Barr and Lee should have been charged with something, but as far as I can tell nobody did nothing. Of course not, they are special, they are celebrities.

Who made them judge and jury?

And I finally found out why Martin was in the limited access community – his father stated he was visiting him and his father’s fiancée, who lived in the same townhouse complex that Zimmerman did.

hand_point2  Also, the judge of the trial has allowed evidence to show that Martin was under the influence of marijuana, releasing a toxology report that was not in the public autopsy report. The autopsy report listed the manner of death as homicide. Hmm. Shouldn’t the report state the person died of a gunshot wound and not determine it to be homicide until a court of law proves it?

A jury’s obligation is to make a decision with no reasonable doubt of a finding of guilty or not guilty.

And … according to WFTV, the autopsy also revealed Martin had injury to knuckles, which means that he was beating on Zimmerman as the defendant said he was.
