FDLE Forensic Report: Zimmerman’s Gun & Fatal Bullet

Zimmerman Trial: Never seen a juror questionnaire before? Here you go . . .

As we’ve been watching the preliminary voir dire of dozens of prospective jurors over the past week or so we’ve heard innumerable mentions of a “juror questionnaire.”  This is simply a list of questions, agreed to by both parties and the Court, which the jurors are asked to complete in writing before being questioned in voir dire.  Their answers help the Court and parties quickly identify prospective jurors who must be dismissed as a matter …

Myth Busters: Did Zimmerman “Chase Down” a Fleeing Martin?

One of the enduring myths of the falsified public narrative promulgated by the State prosecutors and other anti-Zimmerman zealots has been that George Zimmerman “chased down” a frightened Trayvon Martin who was simply attempting to secure the safety of his destination (his father’s girlfriend’s home in at the Retreat at Twin Lakes neighborhood. Is that what really happened?  Or is George Zimmerman’s recounting more credible and consistent with the facts in evidence? Let’s take a …

Zimmerman Trial: Myth Busters: Did Zimmerman really “racially profile” Martin?

One of the abiding myths of the Zimmerman prosecution has been the claim that Zimmerman “racially profiled” Martin.  Although racial profiling is not a crime of any sort in Florida, the prosecution was desperate for any misconduct they could use as a foundation to claim that Zimmerman had possessed a “depraved mind” when he killed Martin.   Indeed, the claim that Zimmerman “profiled” Martin is at the core of the State’s laughably deficient affidavit of …

Zimmerman Trial: Evidentiary Flashback: Affidavit for Probable Cause–Count the untruths

George Zimmerman was arrested, charged, and soon will be tried for murder in the second degree based upon the affidavit for probable cause submitted by investigators from Angela Corey’s office.  These two investigators, T.C. O’Steen and K.D. “Dale” Gilbreath, at the time collectively possessing 44 years of law enforcement including decades in homicides, put down on paper and under oath the words contained in this affidavit. Reading it now, with so much evidence finally revealed …

Zimmerman Trial: Myth Busters: Did Zimmerman disobey police orders to stay in car?

One of the many untruths in the Zimmerman case that has been vigorously disseminated and ingrained into the public consciousness is, variously, that Zimmerman “chased/followed” Martin against police orders, or that he exited his vehicle after being told to stay inside the vehicle, or other variations of this theme. This narrative has continued, with the full-hearted support of the mainstream media and its hundreds of “investigative reporters” despite the fact that even a cursory review …
