Does that rate my Mercedes first I wanna talk about.
This matter of -- of who was doing the screaming.
Because that's going to be very important for these jurors and I wonder if hearing that witness's testimony today.
Hearing the woman say I felt like it was a boy who was screaming for help she said sounding like a Yelp the second time around how powerful is that what impact might that might.
-- it is the absolute key issue here because it's all about who's the aggressor here and if that it and this is the one person -- that can testify.
I -- those -- not an expert not paid.
Non party this is a -- like I'm doing my duty I'm telling you it's a boy absolutely.
Devastating to government.
And the way she the -- -- we have that sound like UWQ it up again I'd appreciate it let me know when you have it the way she delivered it she didn't say.
I'm sure it was that boy but I you know and you can't be sure I guess it was yet the sound yet.
In the -- it's three seconds -- but in those three seconds this is a woman who's clearly scared calling 911 knew there was an issue.
That heightens your awareness I mean these are these jurors are looking at this one think this is the one person I can really call the key to this case when -- was -- Yep let's listen to it again.
Unlike the united truly believe especially the second yell for help that was.
Like -- you know and -- it was excruciating.
I really felt it it was the -- for weeks.
She seemed confident.
I was gonna say that sincere confident and again she's not an expert I mean experts you can just excoriated during cross examination you're paid -- so it's are you not get paid to say this you wrote a report on the you were paid in every time there's money attached to testimony it diminishes the credibility this woman has no money.
Nothing vested no skin in the game this is a woman is speaking from -- heart didn't know either party did -- -- of the party so all right.
Now there's the matter of witness -- -- who has been built up have been just through secrecy I guess if nothing else has a very important witness in in this trial.
She's the one on the phone with him with -- -- -- she says she was win and then the phone records indicate she was.
When this all began when he's like somebody's following me but she's -- she's problematic.
She is how many there are inconsistencies that the one thing that she's not been consistent on is what's problematic for Zimmerman and that is -- I'm being followed I'm being followed what's going on here and -- hears that and expresses -- for the jury.
So they're gonna try to dimensions and William in July that you weren't at the hospital you can go to wake.
Now you're telling us that the reason that you didn't go is because you don't want -- -- body that way.
So there are inconsistencies and there is a jury instruction that says that's going to be given by the judge.
That if you just believe one part of someone's testimony you can discount the entire if you want to if you want to -- at the discretion of the jury.
But the key issue for her is what was -- on doing immediately before he was -- -- We will let's let's let her describe that that this is what she said in court before making this cut coverage began -- I had the man.
-- -- -- No man could mean.
And he -- look creepy creepy anyway.
Creepy white -- went on a -- I think in fact I'm positive she said that trade bond described him as cracker right.
And I don't know.
There are some other it any racial issues that she's young -- says she's emotional and they're gonna kind mechanic ever pass this jury if they believe that one issue.
What a train on saint moments before he was shot and -- -- and I'm being followed and being pursued.
When that with Zimmerman storing them in recent years you were not pursuing him he was aggressive but why is this kid calling.
And saying that he was actually being pursued problematic for.
It is -- I wondered about.
How this testimony played in there it.
It was certainly difficult for us to understand but I I feel like it was probably more difficult in the courtroom because they're using.
Sound amplification in there and she just got quieter as things went on I don't know if it was nerves or what it wasn't she -- got quiet as church mouse.
Yes she did and she was also wiping tears on the stand and for the jurors who of course.
Are the key came persons that prosecutors want to hear the details.
Although a racial -- tell what is -- saying.
They're straining -- here heard the leaning forward.
And they're getting -- to try to get out.
Talk louder and then of course the judge intervened on that.
But the words that she is saying about Trayvon Martin's telling her on the cell phone on that night with the drizzling rain for every point six.
Referring to this guy following him as a creepy ass cracker and also using the N word to describe the -- following him.
Bottom line she really did establish that according to -- -- on Martin and her phone call with him.
Rachel -- tell established for this date that.
He was being pursued trade -- -- was being pursued that night and that is Paramount.
And what they're trying to prove for this jury in that.
George Zimmerman a neighborhood watch activists who they will paint.
As a cop wannabe who violated the training of all of the neighborhood watch instructors.
In that you're not supposed to get involved you're not supposed to follow.
Basically did just that.
He followed bank but following is an across.
Now he he he maintains that that trade on Morton attacked Tim shore and that his face was down on the ground meat sidewalk.
That he felt like he was gonna lose his life.
That he took the gun out of his pocket right and or wherever it was and put it up against his chest and shot -- that he did so in self defense.
Now the injuries that Zimmerman sustained would help.
Because this is someone who had a fractured nose lacerations to the head consistent with what Zimmerman -- -- my head is getting bashed against the cement.
So that's why I have these injuries I didn't inflict them on myself this kid was doing that I was an imminent fear a -- of debt but.
The real issue is what was trip on their -- before now now we've heard conflicting stories about inconsistent stories that the government's that he -- I was walking back to my car.
And that's when I was attacked by train line so I wasn't the -- -- I may have been initially but I retreated I'm going back to my car and I get attacked.
It's it's a mission mosh and frankly that'd -- defense is gonna have to put this man on the stand meant if they want to do the stand your ground legal defense.
