“During the Tuesday, May 28th hearing, Mr. O’Mara misstated the nature of video from Trayvon Martin’s cell phone which was included in the Defendant’s 3rd Supplemental Discovery. He stated that the video showed “two buddies of his beating up a homeless guy,” when what happened was Trayvon Martin, along with a buddy, was videotaping two homeless guys fighting each other over a bike. Though it was unintentional, it is a particular concern to us because we are and have been committed to disputing misinformation in every aspect of this case, not causing it. For that, Mr. O’Mara apologizes.”
If this were any other case then so be it, not that big of a deal but as we know this seemingly simple error carries with it a larger significance in the George Zimmerman case. Why? Because this is a war of propaganda, it has been from the beginning.
Within days of Trayvon’s death, Tracy, Sybrina, Crump et al. and Ryan Julison formulated a fraud they would perpetrate, with the help of a sympathetic press, unto the American public. That fraud remains to this day and is multifaceted. The character and profile of Trayvon Martin was primary, he was to be infantilized and angelified and any truth that may be exposed were to be ignored or minimized. George was to be vilified and demofied. The great black struggle against the man, here mainly the Sanford Police and Wolfinger, was to be injected as the backdrop to make it a civil rights cause. And lastly the facts of the case were to be spun positively for Trayvon and negatively for George. It worked. They won. They still are winning.
Because of that we have the birth of new phrases like Don’t get Cumped or Cumpify it and Crump et al. have been labeled The Scheme Team.
Can the same be said of the other side? And by “the other side” I mean anyone appearing to be a GZ supporter. I’m sure one can find examples. However any attempt from the other side so to speak does not carry with it the same power, that is, a sympathetic press, a mob ready to riot and willing to satisfy white guilt ridden cowardly politicians. Any false claims or spin coming from the other side rarely reaches beyond the realm of a few blogs etc.
What is so very apparent is how willing the world is to jump on O’Mara for doing what The Scheme Team has always done. I expect nothing less. Did O’Mara really think he could Crumpify this tape and not be called out by the very same press that is sympathetic to the cause?
So what is the damage? Well only a week before going to trial we now have a press who will expose the Defense as liars.
George Zimmerman’s Attorneys Apologize for Mischaracterizing Evidence
“George Zimmerman’s attorneys today released a statement, backtracking on what they say a video of a fight found on Trayvon Martin’s cell phone shows.”
And with that a potential jury pool filled with people who will be even more skeptical then they might have been otherwise of O’Mara’s every word during trial.
Enjoy. Examine. Find the Truth.
From the OS article above you’ll find this statement(my bold):
“On Thursday, in preparation for the anticipated release of the fight video, an Orlando Sentinel reporter drafted a story describing it, intending to publish it once the video had been made public. A web producer prematurely posted it to OrlandoSentinel.com Friday but quickly took it down after discovering the video had not been released. The story correctly characterized the video. After readers found a cached version of the story online Sunday, Zimmerman’s attorneys released their statement and decided against posting the video.”
How can they correctly characterize a video that was never made public?
Did the defense give Rene the video?
Does the OS have access to discovery that no one else does? If so what have they been holding back from you the reader all this time?
Regardless some of the discussion regarding the OS article that was removed took place at the treehouse:
At that time I took some screenshots of the Google searches:
Later we got a cache version and Nettles provided a screenshot of it:
There still remains the question though of what exactly the tape shows. If I learned anything from the 711 tapes it was that one ought to view these things in their entirety because you never know what you can find and also I think us adults can form our own opinions without the filters of the press and clearly the defense.
As far as the public is aware there are two videos on Trayvons phone as cited by O’Mara’s 3rd supplemental:
