More facts and documents in the Martin/Zman case

I found more raw documents in the case.  This link contains police reports, witness statements, ballistics, toxicology, and DNA results.

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/120698339/Florida-v-George-Zimmerman—Evidence-released-to-public-May-17_-2012

A few highlights:

  • THC 1.5 ng/mL
  • THC-COOH (Carboxy) 7.3 ng/mL

FDLE Report:

Trayvon was wearing

  • One light grey Nike sweatshirt
  • One dark grey Fruit of the Loom hooded sweatshirt
  • “Each sweatshirt displays a hole located in the upper left chest area. The areas around these holes were microscopically examined and chemically processed for the presence of gunshot residues  Both holes display residues and physical effects consistent with a contact shot.”

Like I mentioned in the previous post, Lawrence Kobilinsky said the Medical Examiner’s autopsy, which says “intermediate”, 1 to 18 inches would trump the FDLE ballistics report above.  But in a way they are both saying the same thing, one saying “contact” the other saying as close as 1 inch.  (Even though he whipped out a measuring stick to indicate just how “far” 18 inches could be…..)  Then they showed a diagram showing them both standing up with Zimmerman pointing the gun to further muddy the waters, even though by all accounts they were both on the ground, with one witness saying Martin was on top, straddling Zman and hitting him “MMA.”

The report of “bloody knuckles,” though, is not right.  There was an abrasion on Trayvon’s left ring finger 1/4 x 1/8 inch and doesn’t qualify as bloody knuckles. (I heard somebody say it was 1/4 x 8 inches.  Honestly, they just get on and blabber on and I don’t think some of these “experts” have even read the reports.)   The illustrative diagram also clearly shows that it is not very big.

The media is/are so shameless in their deceptions.

They don’t want to let go of their narrative.  And some accounts are clinging to the “it could have been avoided if Zimmerman had not gotten out of the truck.”  Well, of course, it could have, but it could have been avoided if he had not gotten into the truck in the first place, if he had not gotten up that morning, and if Trayvon had stayed in his apartment and not gone to the store.  That might sound good on tv but it won’t stand up in court.

They report said it could not be determined whose voice it was yelling for help.

There was blood, his own blood, on Zman’s shirt, I believe it was bout 16 stains that tested positive for blood.

A lot still remains to be cleared up.

P. S.:  Something just occurred to me.  I doubt these documents have addresses, but I am wondering if Trayvon Martin actually lived in this community.  It has been assumed or indicated that he did, but he was shot on the 26th but did not have any identification on him.  It was the 28th before his father identified him.  If there is a person killed on the grounds of your community and there’s police, et cetera, there for hours if not days investigating and questioning witnesses, you would think his father would have known right away it was his son.  Just a thought…..It would be relevant whether he lived there or not.

Copy of autopsy provides important facts in George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case Update2

Trayvon Martin autopsy:

71 inches, 158 pounds.

Wound directly front to back with no exit

Soot, ring abrasion and 2×2 inch stippling around wound

Cause of Death:  Gunshot wound

Manner of Death:  Homicide

From a news report, it was reported toxicology showed marijuana, but I haven’t seen a toxicology report.

Note:  I keep hearing and reading about the shot being at a 1 to 18 inch distance.  Where did that come from?  I am unable to find any mention of 1 – 18 inches in the report.  The range is described as “intermediate.”  I thought, well, maybe the term intermediate refers to a 1 to 18 inch distance, but, if so, then what would be a close range? Update2: Now I know where it came from. Lawrence Kobilinsky, forensics examiner, describes a close range as 1 – 6 inches and intermediate range as 1 – 18 inches.  Either way it can be as close as 1 inch. Logically, it should be 6 – 18 inches, it seems to me.  A ballistic report indicates a “contact” wound.  Kobilinsky says the autopsy trumps the ballistics.   But he does not mention the soot and the stippling!  What I would like to ask him is what range is indicated by the 2×2 inch stippling.  So this is misleading not to mention that.  They obviously have read the same autopsy report I read so they HAVE to know it’s in there.  Funny how they are leaving this out.  (You can tell I’m detail oriented, but it is the details that ultimately get to the truth.)

Quote from report:

“The entrance wound is located on the left chest, 17-1/2 below the top of the head, 1 inch to the left of the anterior midline, and 1/2 inch below the nipple.  It consists of 3/8 inch diameter round entrance defect with soot, ring abrasion, and a 2 x 2 inch area of stippling.This wound is consistent with a wound of entrance of intermediate range.”

A medical report from George Zimmerman’s doctor, which I have not seen, reportedly says the next day he had two black eyes, a fractured nose, and two lacerations on the back of the head and an injured back.

All the hoop-la from the media putting out inflammatory lies or half-truths, they should be ashamed.  The president should be ashamed for reving up the frenzy, but that is what he does.

I heard Trayvon Martin’s attorney say that all they ever wanted was for Zimmerman to be arrested.  Well, they got what they wanted.  Now will they let the legal process play out and accept whatever the result may be?  We’ll see.

Only talk radio is sounding the alarm: Obama is a lawless president

 Barack obama is no ordinary (alleged) president and this next election is just not more of the same ho hum democrat vs republican.  Only talk radio is sounding the warning.   I’m sure there are more voices out there, but here are a few of the leading talk radio hosts in the last couple days.  I believe it was Michele Bachmann who said this may be the last election we have to stop the march towards socialism/marxism or something even worse.  There is no longer any doubt what this obama is all about and where he is taking us.  This is a dead serious matter.

On his radio show last night, Mark Levin said that President Barack Obama has caused a “constitutional crisis” by appointing members to the National Labor Relations Board and a director to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without going through the constitutionally required Senate confirmation process.

“We have a constitutional crisis,” Levin said. “It is in fact a constitutional crisis.”

“The President of the United States is trashing the Constitution now day in and day out,” Levin said.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: All right, some people in the e-mail have taken exception with my description of Obama as “lawless” and acting outside the Constitution. Let me share with you a quote, and this is from a video. It might have been from yesterday out in Ohio, but it’s within the past couple days. Obama said, “When Congress refuses to act — and as a result, hurts our economy and puts our people at risk — then I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them.” He got applause. “I have an obligation to act on behalf of the American people. I’m not going to stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people that we elected to serve. Not with so much at stake, not at this make-or-break moment for middle class Americans. We’re not gonna let that happen.”

Now, the Founding Fathers said this is exactly what’s supposed to happen! It’s called “the separation of powers,” and it’s to make sure that things like this do not happen, that an all-powerful executive does not run roughshod over the government.

If Barack Obama wins in 2012, America is headed for something worse than a failing European-style socialist state, top-rated radio host Michael Savage said on his nationally syndicated show today.

“I have to tell you that if this man, God forbid, is the next president of the United States, we’re going to be living in something along the lines of – people say Europe. I don’t believe it’s going to be like Europe – I think it will be closer to Chavez’s South American dictatorship,” he told his “Savage Nation” audience.

Penn State President Spanier said: It depends on what the meaning of immoral is

The Clinton County high school attended by victim #1 told his mother they would not call the police when she asked or demanded they do so.  She was told to “think of the ramifications” before she called the police.  She was told, “Jerry has a heart of gold.”

Graham Spanier fought for and received an exemption to the state’s open records law for Penn State and three other universities in 2007, so they don’t have to release any records.

Travel and expense records are missing for 2000 – 2003 at Second Mile.

The culture of an organization is set at the top.  It is no wonder the administration covered up for Sandusky.  They just didn’t think there was anything all that wrong with what he was doing.  As Spanier is quoted in the below story written in 2002, “It depends on what the meaning of immoral is.”

Pedophile advocate featured at university

Penn State’s latest controversy even includes sadomasochist author

A women’s health conference at Penn State University featured an outspoken advocate of pedophilia and sadomasochism as a keynote speaker.

The event held last weekend is the latest on controversial sexual themes that has drawn the ire of some state lawmakers. Last year, campus groups held a “Sex Faire” that included “orgasm bingo” and a “tent of consent.” The previous November they hosted a “C—fest,” which intended to reclaim a derogatory word for a woman’s body part. It was promoted with large banners around the campus.

State Rep. John A. Lawless, D-Montgomery, told WorldNetDaily he has “tried everything,” including blocking funding, to stop events of this kind, but has been unsuccessful.

“You can’t touch Penn State,” said Lawless, who crossed over from the Republican to the House Democratic caucus last November. “The legislature cares about their football team. Football is more important than education or morals.”

Lawless said lawmakers tried to hold the school accountable with a “paper straw” type of policy that barred anyone under 18 from attending.

“But the events shouldn’t be occurring,” he said. “If you want to do this kind of activity, hey, I’m a big boy, I can handle it. But go do it on your own money, your own time; don’t use taxpayer facilities for this kind of stuff.”

At the three-day Conference on Women’s Health and Wellness, Patrick Califia-Rice, a self-described “transgendered bisexual person,” spoke of a journey from “female to male sexuality.”

Califia-Rice is the author of books such as “Macho Sluts” and “Public Sex: The Culture of Radical Sex.”

The North American Man-Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA, includes this quote from Califia-Rice on its website: “Boy-lovers and the lesbians who have young lovers are the only people offering a hand to help young women and men cross the difficult terrain between straight society and the gay community. They are not child molesters. The child abusers are priests, teachers, therapists, cops and parents who force their stale morality onto the young people in their custody. Instead of condemning pedophiles for their involvement with lesbian and gay youth, we should be supporting them.”

A story this week by the Newhouse News Service noted that a handful of academics at mainstream universities are arguing in academic journals, books and online that at least some sex between adults and children should be acceptable, especially when children consent to it.
 
…..

After the “Sex Faire” in February, the state’s House Appropriations Committee held a hearing in which Lawless, a member, played a five-minute video excerpted from one made at the event.

Lawless said at the hearing that Penn State should be punished for failing to be “moral” leaders. Penn State President Graham Spanier, who was questioned by lawmakers in a four-hour session, apologized for certain components of the event but maintained that the university was committed to free speech.

When asked directly if the programs were wrong or immoral, Spanier gave a “Clinton-esque” answer, according to Lawless.

“His answer,” said Lawless, “was ‘It depends on what your definition of immoral is.'”

Obama has crossed a line and gone way past George W. Bush

Disagreeing with the regime around here gets you called a terrorist in secret congressional meetings and in newspapers.  I would hope to God it would take more than an accusation and a secret DOJ memo…..

Outside the U.S. government, President Obama’s order to kill American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki without due process has proved controversial, with experts in law and war reaching different conclusions. Inside the Obama Administration, however, disagreement was apparently absent, or so say anonymous sources quoted by the Washington Post. “The Justice Department wrote a secret memorandum authorizing the lethal targeting of Anwar al-Aulaqi, the American-born radical cleric who was killed by a U.S. drone strike Friday, according to administration officials,” the newspaper reported. “The document was produced following a review of the legal  issues raised by striking a U.S. citizen and involved senior lawyers  from across the administration. There was no dissent about the legality  of killing Aulaqi, the officials said.”

CMA Juror No 3, Jennifer Ford ABC interview

http://abcnews.go.com/US/casey_anthony_trial/casey-anthony-juror-sick-stomach-guilty-verdict/story?id=14005609

at 1:58 she said:  “We had a lot of discussion, we started to go through some stuff, but none of it…..how did she die?”  They were out for a grand total of 10 hours.

I understand if the state did not prove the case, but I heard her say it was easier for her to believe the drowning story (with no testimony at all) than to believe the state’s chloroform and duct tape evidence.  Opening statement is not evidence.   And she’s talking about punishment and they were not supposed to be considering punishment in the guilt phase of the trial.

See verdict forms and the instructions of the judge to the jury:

http://media.trb.com/media/acrobat/2011-07/177483200-04090136.pdf

I listened to the video of the interview she had with ABC, and I picked up on the “we started to go through some stuff” meaning that they did not take the time to even go over the evidence.  Juror No. 3 is a 32 year old nursing student (but not in school right now) living with her mother.  I wonder who the foreperson of this jury was.

The more I find out about the jury, the more I am convinced Casey did get a jury of her peers.  One had trouble staying awake, at least one had DUIs, one had a sister who had, along with her boyfriend, done some assault on her mother.

Ford said this about her fellow-jurors:   “They picked a great bunch of people, such high integrity. And there was high morale,” she said. “We all joked. We are like a big group of cousins.”

Posted:  07.11.11 @ 3:07 p.m.  Update:  07.12.11 @5:08 added links to verdict forms and jury instructions  Update:  07.12.11 @ 11:49 removed reference to the mug shot because I don’t believe it’s her.
