George Zimmerman Trial Thread

I see a lot of people are talking about this in comments.

The prosecution's "star witness" isn't such a star.

Jeantel is mumbling her testimony, leading to delays in the courtroom. She has already allegedly perjured herself months ago by stating that she missed Martin’s funeral because she was in the hospital.

She alleges that Trayvon said "White Hispanic is following me," or something like that, moments before the shooting.

Although I just started watching it, Shep and his legal expert say that Zimmerman's lawyer is doing a horrible job with this witness, avoiding every chance to impeach her, generally having no control over her. She's legal expert actually said the lawyer's malperformance could be the basis of an ineffective assistance of counsel appeal, should it come to that.

I doubt that but I guess he's doing a very poor job.

Live Video with Commentary: At Legal Insurrection, which also has several twitter timelines from people watching the trial.
