-- analyst Peter Johnson junior.
Attorney -- -- with us some prosecutor Anna Sega -- -- and creepy -- cracker.
I'll say it.
Because that's what was said and the N -- Peters again what did you think of that.
If this is the prosecution's star witness I really don't wanna see the worst witnesses -- prosecution intends to win.
In this case the case in terms of prosecution.
Was supposed to be about racial attitudes of George Zimmerman.
And now front and center we -- Tre -- -- invoking the N word and invoking yet another bad word good crack -- her cell.
I think it's backfired big way any of the prosecutor and -- going to disagree that's.
We -- But you know what this is a teenager -- with look at the billboard charts lately this is what you're hearing in the lyrics and while it's not right I wish they weren't there at this is how kids are talking.
And so it is not so.
Unexpected and I actually say it goes towards her credibility that she says those words because that's what he says you believe she was a credible helpful witness for the prosecution -- -- -- in spite of a long ways since she writes a letter and she couldn't even read the letter will get to the second -- can't really write very well we are not talking about a woman who is extremely but -- -- it she said she wrote the letter -- take -- witnesses as you find them and you cannot get away from the fact that this is the young woman who was on the phone -- -- on Martin at the but the time of his death.
I agree with you that the -- the defense if they have kept -- -- -- stand for half an hour or an hour I think I'd be sitting here a little differently.
But -- the longer they kept -- with as much too long.
Sheet strength and her and I'd agree -- that point John.
Every time she opened her mouth she chipped away at her own credibility so much so that I really don't think she has any.
This is the prosecution's star witness.
You know going and I agree that you take -- witnesses as you find them prosecution had to know that she was going to beat an awful witness -- -- on first.
Richard -- -- and -- program I think he's you can get away with not putting her on and off.
Did I agree with -- here's the issue I feel sorry for her as a person forced into this situation.
But it -- -- -- anyway I think history she can't read she has literacy Apollo public comments have been cruel talk this and that and the like and that's wrong she didn't ask to be put in the situation.
But in terms of the attitude.
Of of the decedent.
Of the of the so called victim in this case she's revealed a tremendous a lot that goes beyond cultural norms all right let's play.
Which she reveals who would and I and I were discussing that she can't read the letter that she in the friend supposedly had written and she said she wrote.
About the shooting.
And you end Meserve talked about what you wanted to be in the letter.
And then she helped write it in a way that was legible correct.
Yes but the contents of the letter are you worse.
Are you able to read that -- well enough that you can tell us if it's in fact the same letter no.
Are you unable to read that at all.
Can you read any of the words on it.
-- and read your.
Goes to her credibility I mean this is a young woman.
Who is embarrassed that he has -- -- -- -- -- people over here and making her every -- I've been dealing with the black women with her and homicides over the last 1012 years and fortunately successfully.
And so you can't look -- she is not your next -- -- are.
She is someone who did you write a letter -- -- not write the letter I think your friend wrote the -- and -- had to end her own letter so it's Connecticut she can't read it but it doesn't mean Connecticut doesn't often come on the jury ought to look at it convict somebody for second degree murder I wanna know that she wrote that letter could that she said she wrote.
Right exactly you can't enter into evidence in and with Andy.
Burden of proof on the prosecution if they can't.
She can't demonstrate that -- those were her words that that's and she was talking to visit pesos about it there's a pathetic quality about it Sean.
But at the same time you're right in this part.
Is -- a fabrication.
This is not a a recorded telephone call all we have is her accounts and if she can't authenticate then -- Then there's a problem but I do feel cipher block it and a lot of her -- account with you corroborated by other people -- -- you have the phone records that are any evidence that -- the cause of the exact times she says -- -- any -- this show that the best way to -- -- does any of this show.
That George Zimmerman is guilty of second degree murder.
It -- we've got to get to that point in this case he also it's not just second degree murder in this case -- -- -- manslaughter and at Florida manslaughter is the killing someone else by the act but torment or even criminal negligence and it's not justify so yes.
Did the -- -- out and you're growl low standard around only applies if -- not the attack are some that provide -- -- follower.
But they go back to -- tell admitting that she lied under oath wants us.
Told -- Hillary under.
Did you go into the hospital.
So you I know that you had said that earlier to mr.
problem and -- admissible and -- it's giving me.
A plausible explanation.
For why you didn't go to the memorial service -- the way is that right.
And then when mr.
-- -- ask you about again.
-- -- -- -- -- Yes but you knew that I was alive -- and yeah.
You lied because.
You want -- to get a plausible answer to miss Fulton.
As to why we didn't go to the way.
But on the April 2 interview.
You were trapped under.
And you knew that -- -- and you made -- decision then because of how difficult the situation you had just been put him.
He decided to lie about going to the hospital.
Rather than say something that might be painful.
There were Syria's allies yen and the question is is -- inexcusable line now the truth is that there's a lot of people amongst us.
That don't have the stomach -- the hard to attend -- to attend a funeral and say I can't tell and they come up with lies and excuses.
In terms of lies that's not a Dan noble lie.
And again there's this empathy but it does prove.
That the witness is capable of telling a lie even when she swears.
To tell the truth.
But and that's not the only instance.
She is she actually can't keep much of her story straight she told different stories during the investigation she's on the stand giving.
Different answers to the same question and again this all goes with the phils aren't for her -- had.
But it goes to her credibility and if she's the star witness supposedly having to prove that -- -- was the aggressor we can't believe what's coming.
Out of her mouth that's a problem I had The Who look she said at one point couldn't hear -- on -- could have heard trade -- I could that this there's been.
These they may seem small -- Q and probably -- you know 456 of these instances I am not saying she -- a witness who is your dream went past she was not and she actually hurt herself and she proved herself to lie and she admitted those lies in the stands what I think is important to remember she is not testifying in a vacuum.
You have lots of neighbors and lots of other pieces of evidence.
That the prosecution puts it together by the end to say luck.
These couple things would be believer you can except a witness you can disregard that -- take part if you take what she says the basics that have never changed.
A lot of what she says has never ever change the -- sex and you put it would be either but can still end up with criminal liability weather is murder or manslaughter we're talking -- How he says didn't mr.
Zimmerman says that it's self defense.
And when we hear testimony that his alleged victim.
Is engaging in this kind of language and thinking in these kind of terms that gives credibility to the notion -- I think in the self defense -- was being followed in the middle of the night while he was walking back home allegation war delegates like cracker I bet that that's not -- -- listen when I guess I cracker.
I don't care who's following home is someone shouldn't have been following home coming home from a store and that is on videotape you see him behind -- get else.
You have not only the -- all we know is George Zimmerman had injuries consistent with a story a broken nose lacerations on his head and when he shot.
Trade -- Martin trade Ron was on top of him how to overcome that I don't think it matters who punched you -- I'll tell you why because they -- we want only come back apparently got to come back more than a panel right after the break and later.
