We didn't plan it this way we had them book separately blood -- Mauer and and then prompt the attorney for the trip on Martin's family have agreed to to appear now together.
Mark -- to you.
Are you concerned by some of the kind of freaky support.
That jurors -- -- is getting that crazy pastor Terry Jones who is burning the Koran showing up in Sanford Florida.
You know -- others agitating on the far right to raise money for his defense.
-- enhance your job now going to be controlling some of the the people who would help and tarnish your client in the process.
-- I'm very concerned on both sides I'm concerned that there is some periphery or some extreme.
On -- Sodom -- conservative there are some experience those amino wanna listen to the fact that they come out.
On behalf of the -- which again upset from -- wanted to horrible tragedy.
To go through.
But we really need to do the best thing I heard and I appreciate mr.
-- thing at three times.
Is that they have faith in the system in the family believes in the system.
Let us get through the process of getting to the what the discovery is and we'll find out what did happen on that horrible night.
And in that regard mark in the in -- relevant to discovery.
You know -- -- and are getting high praise for many attorneys.
For using a bail hearing as as discovery.
In a sense you've got what's his name dale -- breath.
One of the investigators to say on the witness stand that he did not know who threw the first punch.
And he also said admitted that he had no evidence that this proved -- -- statement.
That he was walking back to the car when -- bomb allegedly attacked.
Him did you plan on this bail hearing be coming in essence.
I can suggest it was masterfully crafted and anyway but I was very frustrated.
By the probable cause affidavit in the lack of facts that it did happen also.
Probable cause affidavit is supposed to have all the facts not that's just those that support.
What the state wants it to so I was very frustrated intended to get into that.
One way or the other whether through the affidavit itself through the witness and glad it -- operated.
And I want to go back to the first question I started you know we have.
Your -- trade bonds parents.
Because of their gracious nature in their sincerity.
And -- moderation in their tragedy.
But as a lawyer I'm not asking you what they think I'm asking you what you think are you worried when you consider that murderer to.
I did trade evidence -- -- depraved mind showing no regard for human life that's quite a steep bar.
The state has to prove they George Zimmermann.
Evidence that depraved mind showing no regard for human life aren't you worried that there's not a murder to wrap -- and that that will result in severe disappointment in many parts of the country.
I'm not where the evidence is -- -- -- -- big tourism in the second degree murder.
We listen to the object of evidence this now more one take.
When he says.
The things he's saying that tape.
He had an intent there to pursue trade -- mark and for whatever reason Trey brown was suspicious.
We all know about the comments in -- movie and those type of things that he said on that tape and then the fact that in the red tape when the police say where he's going to be -- and he says just call me.
When a jury hears that and saying this and today evidence fairly and you look at where his body was found.
They have enough evidence that -- -- George Zimmermann of murder and trade Martin and certainly.
If that she was on the other flip nobody will be saying that this is a hard case to convict -- -- mark and if he would report to -- Q majorities -- them.
The Mark -- what about Ben's point there -- what if it had been reversed and -- bomb was the shooter.
Wouldn't they -- In this country realistically speaking have a whole different dynamic now or -- tell you what it better yet.
To put that aside are you concerned that this case is split the nation -- racial lines -- now.
I have concerns that from what I've seen this case has -- -- become a flash point for conversations.
That may need to occur.
But I'm not certain that George Zimmermann should be in the cross hairs because of those conversations this -- -- it seems -- and mr.
-- Has much better inside on the discovery because he's seen a lot more than I have with -- don't have discovery -- He can talk really more from one point perspective as to what the evidence is going to show all I know is that it seems as though the country has really.
Even though we know that all the evidence it's -- out because the state hasn't released any of it to the public.
And -- last statement.
With respect to -- America the thing that rarely has.
-- so many people who listen to this case is the fact that.
He have a nine -- do when he got that car and pursue -- -- mark and and it took so long quest just to get on the wrist here we felt that the police in there about -- -- -- this week.
-- -- Martinsville -- of the world and that.
We are still concerned that there are certain people out there.
Can't get equal justice in America and that's all the family wants is equal got a little bit completely fair -- and thank you both for coming on thank you so on.
