George Zimmerman Murder Trial: CNN Legal Analyst Gets Owned by Mark Nejame in Analysis of Prosecution Witness Rachel Jeantel


Witness is credible because she presented facts that have already been accepted as facts, HUH?

Talk about a MSM liberal bias to analyzing the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of  Trayvon Martin. CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin made excuses for prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel, the last individual to ever talk to Trayvon Martin. Toobin tried to defend the witness as credible; however, she has been caught in lies. Some how Toobin thinks that it is completely appropriate for Trayvon Martin to refer to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer, who was following Martin as a “creepy ass cracker”. Toobin opined that she successfully portrayed Zimmerman as the aggressor and that he was following Martin. HUH? Toobin also said she was credible, because it was ok and acceptable for her to lie. Good grief.

Along came Mark Nejame for some sane analysis. Nejame came out with the obvious, there has been no opposition to the fact that George Zimmerman was following Trayvon Martin. We already knew that, it has been pretty much stipulated. There is nothing new there. What is in question is that how the two individuals came together to the eventual violent end. Of course conveniently CNN then cut off Nejame because it did not fit their agenda.

Sorry folks, this case is supposedly based upon race by the prosecution. They are trying to portray that Zimmerman, the “white” Hispanic had it in for Trayvon Martin because “they always get away with it”. Yet, it would appear from Martin’s own words to his friend, “creepy ass cracker” is following me, that Martin has just as many racial bigotries as they claim Zimmerman has. Let’s just call it like it is, this was a case of two individuals who came together at the wrong time, the wrong place and with the wrong attitudes.

      I am of the opinion That Mr. Zimmerman used his own gun to inflict the injury to the back of his
      head and mouth. I own a gun made by the same mfg.
      of this model. The very small site on the gun brl
      of this gun would make a cut such as the one on the back of Mr. Zimmerman’s head, and he could have very well hit himself in the mouth with the
      gun right after he shot young Martin before the
      law arrived.

      He should not have followed the young man after he was told not to.

      Thanks Larry
      SM: I will agree with you that GZ should not have followed him after was told not to, but the rest of what you are saying is not believable. Trayvon was much larger than Zimmerman. I am sure once it became a close fight, TM kicked the crap out of GZ, bloodied his nose and pounded his head to the ground. That is completely believable.

      This witness is so intent on making the case to the jurors that Travon was attacked that she cannot get her stories straight.

      She is supposedly a senior in high school, but has the language skills of a fifth grader. She speaks in slang most of the time making it difficult for the court reporter to accurately record her words.

      This is the “star” witness for the prosecution?

      This woman illustrates the prime reason why Zimmerman should never have been charged. This is nothing more than a judicial lynching of Zimmerman in order to placate the “race” baiters. .

    3. Kate on June 27th, 2013 1:13 pm

      Never use the word, “get”, when writing.

      “get owned” ? really?

    4. super dave on June 27th, 2013 4:23 pm

      19 and still in school ?? can’t read ? probably can’t even spell when she tweets. a non credible witness who is playing along with the prosecution pushing the race card to get a conviction.
      i have to wonder how they coached her if she can’t even read ? but all they need is the race card to cause trouble.
      sounds like Martin was spouting racism before the two even had contact.

    5. Karma on June 27th, 2013 5:41 pm

      Lets ask Treyvon what happened? Oh that’s right, he was killed that night by Zimmerman and cannot testify.
      Tell the “wrong place wrong time” argument to Treyvon’s parents.
      And whats with the right wing media not telling it like it is….Treyvon was killed by Zimmerman. It is very strange why conservatives have dug their heals in on this. Is it because Treyvon is black or is it because Obama weighed in?

      The only thing we know for sure, since the trial just started, is Zimmerman KILLED Martin.
      SM: You really are pretty ignorant and don’t have a friggin clue. I will tell the “wrong place wrong time” argument to Treyvon’s parents. It happens all the time. This case is not special. Black kids get murdered every day. Take a look at what is going on in Chicago.

      I feel terrible for Trayvon’s parents and of course Zimmerman shot Martin. However, when two combustible individuals come together, bad things happen. For Trayvon to have referred to Zimmerman as a “creepy ass cracker” don’t even start with me that Martin did not take exception to anyone dare following him. And who brought race into this? Cuz making a comment like cracker is not a racial slur. Please.

      This case is not about feeling sorry and emotional, its supposed to be about the law. I just think its a stretch that this is second degree murder.


    6. Karma on June 27th, 2013 5:45 pm

      @#1 – do you feel any sympathy for Martin’s parents?

    7. kashekamon on June 27th, 2013 8:17 pm

      She is definitely a racist, totally rude and disrespectful, not to mention the fact that she lies. Is she the reason Trayvon had 13 necklaces in his backpack that he said he was holding for a friend or was it his crime. He stopped in front of a dark house, no lights on, was he casing the place? He was a thug that would of killed George. No fist fight, Travyon never had a mark on him but George had many, broken nose, bloody head beaten on the concrete, who was screaming, it without question was George.

      Obama owes the Zimmerman family quite an apology for the comments he made and all the racial protests he caused.

      No # 6 Karma…….

      Trayvon’s parents have traveled all over the Country talking about their son’s death making money out of it. What parent would go on the View ( a bunch of cackling old hens ) and talk about your dead son. Besides that the Home Association where they lived paid them a large sum of money for the death of their son. As a parent I could not and would never ever go on talk shows to exploit my dead child. Loosing a child must be the most excruciating pain that could ever happen to a parent.. so no I do not have sympathy for his parents. I do however feel sad that Trayvon lost his life.

    11. A Texas Grandfather on June 28th, 2013 7:31 am

      There is sworn testimony by Jeantel that the prosecutor met with her at the home of Trayvon’s mother to do the interview which resulted in the murder charges against George.

      This in my opinion is a deliberate action by the prosecution to take advantage of a now 19 year old young woman who can barely read or write.

      The court needs to determine who wrote the letter for Jeantel since she cannot read or write cursive. She also cannot understand most of the questions ask of her.

      Trayvon had approximately four minutes to walk to the safety of his father’s girlfriends residence and he chose to confront George.

      Trayvon was also suspended from school for possession of drugs and suspicion of robbery when women’s jewelry were found in his backpack at school. He had been sent to Sanford to live with his father because his mother could no longer keep him under control.

      I think this will turn out to be another edition of the Nifong syndrome where the prosecution overstepped the rule of law.

    12. MikeT on June 28th, 2013 11:05 am

      Where is all this ‘can barely read or write’ BS coming from? She can clearly read – she asked the defence for written copies numerous times because she couldn’t understand the questions the lawyer was asking her.

      Her language is a product of her environment, don’t assume she is stupid or illiterate just because she doesn’t speak the way you find acceptable.

    13. kashekamon on June 28th, 2013 12:18 pm

      A hired security guard would of done the same thing by following Travyon because of the crime in their neighborhood and because he looked suspicious…..what’s the difference? Why did Travyon think he was being followed, George could of been walking to his house. I don’t believe Travyon ever yelled for help. Star witness is lying through her teeth, she is so nasty and sarcastic.

    14. mc on June 28th, 2013 12:30 pm

      If GZ’s last name was Zapato instead of Zimmerman would this case make the national news?

      If M

    15. mc on June 28th, 2013 12:35 pm

      If Martin had shot and killed Zimmerman would this be headline news?

      How many black teens kill each other that doesn’t make the news?

      If NBC had correctly portrayed Martin as a wannabee thug instead of a sweet innocent 12 yr. old boy would this be in the news?

    16. Karma on June 28th, 2013 4:08 pm

      @10: wow. You must really hate Beth Holloway, all the Sandy Hook parents, the list could go on and on. #11 is an admitted racist…..don’t fall into that #10. Think for yourself rather than toeing the nutty conservative line about how the black kid was a thug and zimm is an angel. Take a look at zimms violent brushes with the law.

      Be nice to hear both sides though……except Treyvon was violently killed by zimm so all we will have is the story of George the liar.
      When George the liar doesn’t take the stand I’m sure you’ll assume he’s guilty, right?
      SM: Be nice to hear both sides, really? You could care less about both sides, only your side. Believe it or not, it is possible to shoot some one in self defense. You say George is a liar, but the prosecution, yes, the prosecution, not the defense is proving Zimmerman’s story is actually true. Witnesses for the prosecution have stated TV was on top of Zimmerman pounding on him

      No one thinks Zimmerman is an angel, the liberal MSM, MSNBC and the race baitors were attempting to show that TV was the angel. So please don’t try and change the facts. I know of no angels that call people “creepy ass crackers”.

      Say, lets say the rolls were reversed and it was TV who followed Zimmerman and eventually shot him in self defense. Let’s say hypothetically GZ referred to TV as a “creepy as “N” word? Hmm, think that would not be used to show that Zimmerman had hate in his heart and could have contributed to his own death? Hmm?

      Those are the questions that fair minded individuals use to follow the case. The fact that you use blanket comments like following the “nutty conservative” makes you a bit of a bigot actually.

      You are so quick to condemn others who do not agree like you and call people racists who you do not even know. What does that actually make you?

      I will remind you that in the Duke LAX case, I actually initially thought the players were guilty and it had nothing to do with black or white, it had to do with individuals with were consistently in trouble, felt entitled and who’s coach even quit because he thought they were guilty. We all learned that was a lie. So far be it from anyone not to believe a prosecutors story of events who over-reaches.

    17. Sailcat on June 28th, 2013 9:13 pm

      Re: #15 – If Trayvon Martin had killed George Zimmerman, it not only would not be front page news. Trayvon would already be serving LWOP. But in today’s America, the situation is quite different. George Zimmerman assaulted a police officer and also his fiance; yet Trayvon Martin is a “thug.” George Zimmerman – according to his own testimony – followed and chased Trayvon Martin, causing him to run in fear. And yet everybody is willing to believe that Trayvon somehow circled back, hid in the bushes, and jumped out onto a man he was afraid of. I’ve never seen such absolute joy over the killing of a human being as I’ve seen in this case. And it scares me to death to know that there are people who feel absolutely no compassion for the parents of a dead child.
      SM: I think we can all have sympathy for parents who lose a child; however, the story the prosecution has painted of GZ is a crock and the prosecution witnesses are proving the lie. At best Zimmerman should have been charged with man slaughter and it might have been justifiable manslaughter.

      Referring to some one as a “creepy ass cracker” far from makes Trayvon Martin a saint and shows his thought process and attitude prior to the confrontation. Most likely, if Zimmerman did not have a gun, Trayvon would have beaten senseless and probably unconscious and would be on trial himself.


    18. Thomas on June 29th, 2013 4:08 am

      First of all if this was turned around the other way every black person would be screaming he’s innocent. What bothers me is Florida has a stand your ground law, so Zimmerman shouldn’t even be on trail. Also the media Also portrays an innocent little picture of trayvon Martin, which is the total opposite, trayvon was a drug dealing low life gangbanging thug, not some innocent 12 year old the media portrays trayvon Martin. Every picture they use for trayvon Martin is out dated. Race cards have been pulled, yet Zimmerman is Mexican yet is portrayed as a white guy. If the media was honest from day one we wouldn’t be talking about this. Trayvon is not some innocent person they make him out to be. Also you damn well if Zimmerman get off

    19. Thomas on June 29th, 2013 4:14 am

      Race riots will happen black vs white sad news is Zimmerman isn’t even white. It shows how immature some people are and how simple minded society is. Why attack innocent people who have nothing to do with the trial. Instead of causing trouble lets join together and change the stand your ground law. Instead of rioting use your skills to change things for the better. HE’S NOT WHITE! If you riot your just as guilty has Zimmerman is. I could continue but people use your brains for once.
      SM: I would also add Thomas that the ‘Stand you Ground” law is not being used in this case as a defense. Self-defense is. However, you are correct, nothing is solved by a riot.

    20. kashekamon on June 29th, 2013 5:05 pm

      Travyon’s mother and father were lousy parents. They had an undisciplined thug for a son. Which they did nothing about!!!! This encounter took place on Feb 28th, in the meantime, they hadn’t seen or heard from Travyon until Feb 28th when the police located them. They hadn’t called the police or even filed a missing person’s report. But, of course, wasted no time in filing a civil lawsuit against Twin Lakes and obtaining a million dollars.

      Media showing photographs of Travyon when he was 11 to 14 yrs old, big deal about a bag of skittles and an arizona ice tea, big deal, means nothing. But Travyon being a boxer and participating in organized prize winning boxing matches does. His wrists and hands were lethal weapons and he used them as such.

    21. Sailcat on June 30th, 2013 8:54 am

      I’ve seen this before. People blamed Natalie Holloway for her own death. Same with Travis Alexander. It’s just very unnerving to see it coming from someone I’ve always admired as a victim’s advocate.
      SM: No one is blaming the victim. But please do not confuse or compare a female being sexually assaulted, murdered then a Aruba cover up from the family, police and government with the Zimmerman/Martin case. Not even remotely the same. Not even close to being the same.

      As for this … what of GZ was an off-duty police officer, how would his actions changed? Would be have still referred to GZ as a “creepy ass cracker”? The point in this one is that both parties were very wrong and in as much as GZ is portrayed in the MSM as a racist and as the prosecution stated GZ singled out TM, it is obvious that TM was no choir boy and over-reacted as well.

      I will say this again, if George Zimmerman did not have a gun and shot Trayvon Martin, then TM would have been on trial for assaulting GZ.


    22. Sailcat on June 30th, 2013 10:49 pm

      Re #21: You know I wasn’t comparing the cases themselves. I was saying – and I’m still saying – that it was wrong for people to say Natalee was somehow to blame for what happened to her, and it is wrong for people to say that Trayvon was to blame for what happened to him. He was doing NOTHING WRONG!

      George Zimmerman was NOT an off-duty police officer. Who cares what Trayvon called him in a conversation with another kid??? The fact is that George Zimmerman CHASED an unarmed, barely-seventeen-year-old kid through this neighborhood and scared him to death. Then all of a sudden the kid somehow becomes emboldened enough and clever enough to circle back and catch GZ off-guard and jump him? It defies logic. The only evidence that TM overreacted and attacked GZ is from the mouth of GZ. It baffles me how you can take as gospel the word of a guy who once physically attacked a police officer. What kind of man attacks a police officer??? What kind of man goes on a shopping trip to Target with a gun stuck in his pants with the safety off???

      I’m sorry, but I don’t understand how someone with your track record of standing up for crime victims can take this kind of stand in a case where an unarmed kid was shot and killed by an overzealous neighborhood watchman.
      SM: The cases are apples and oranges. The difference is that the community had a volunteer watch group because of the recent crime. No, you can’t compare an kidnapping, date-rape, murder and island coverup of a crime to this. Yes and that is foolish and self-servicing that you would attempt to.

      You are exaggerating in your story. Provide facts.

      I am not taking the word of anyone. Have you watched the trial? I am going off of evidence provided from the trial.

      Sorry, but there was no second degree murder here. The prosecution over-charged after being pressured to bring the case forward.

      You said, “I’m sorry, but I don’t understand how someone with your track record of standing up for crime victims can take this kind of stand in a case where an unarmed kid was shot and killed by an overzealous neighborhood watchman.”

      You make it sound like he just pulled out his gun and shot him dead as GZ was following TM. As GZ was getting his A$$ kicked and reached for his gun and shot TM. Big difference.

      If TM had shot and killed GZ, with Zimmerman’s own gun, guess what … TM would be defending himself in court using “self defense”.
