I often after controversial court verdict emotion rules today but now -- 48 hours after the jury came to their decision.
Joining us from Orlando one of the attorneys for the trade on Martin family -- park's first of all counselor.
Do you believe this was a fair trial.
Bill I don't want to second guess is -- however I believe that they -- their decision is not socially.
Logical to be honest with you and so that's why we see the -- received today.
What about the evidence though I don't know if decisions.
Of this magnitude should be based on social perceptions.
According to the jury and one of the -- you may not know this spoke out today and said.
That it was the 911 tape that five out of this picture is believed on the 911 call.
It was Zimmerman -- voice asking for help five out of six believe that and one didn't know that was a key piece of evidence so let's keep it in the evidentiary area.
Do you believe that the evidence was was presented to the jury fairly.
I believe more most of presentation history and I really don't want to second guess the prosecution team.
I don't I don't think it's proper to do at least from my position.
Now but what I will tell you don't.
Did the main part of of the cases self defense -- who was yelling that they use is really immaterial in terms of the voice.
The fact that he said that the main witness -- -- -- -- and mr.
-- talked about.
The personal -- -- -- -- about the armpits.
This is that I would say that the gun was back here and so was really physically impossible we have to -- -- give the -- we believe he's not telling the truth.
In -- what happen.
Happening this case so that this jury decided.
They wanted to believe that George Zuma and his team did a fairly good job of making -- -- it's nice model citizen who protected your neighborhood.
And yet they just they did -- -- on his son dubbed it was a very.
Controversial picture that was admitted they -- -- on certainly is and we're not upward looking picture right as some young seventeen year old black man well this jury.
Probably could never identify which -- on.
But certainly -- -- a far far more.
With the image that was betrayal of Jordan's of the -- we all like that wasn't neighbor who tries to make our neighborhood nice is safe and think -- the last witness.
Who had no -- whatsoever to the case in chief.
She was his latest talk us some -- crime of some black man -- broke into our house and that witness probably should never have been allowed to witness was allowed to testify but it went on to program in this jury's mind.
That Jordan's general was the guy who worked to make -- neighborhoods safe well this issue in this case was whether or not.
He was justified in his killing -- of trailer.
I'm okay I'm not that I don't want to retry and I'm not an attorney but you just heard our attorneys who were following the close case very closely say that the FBI's initial investigation.
Turned up no evidence of racism.
These -- the George Zimmerman.
And yeah I don't know mr.
Zimmerman I don't know what was in mind you don't know what was his mind.
But I want to get back to the fairness in order to say that the jury.
Didn't convict Zimmerman because on racial lines you would have to believe that six women in their hearts -- you harm to a black man and I don't I don't think that that.
That can be even remote.
Lady put forth -- -- credibility do you.
And and it not put forth that that they -- decision based on race when you try our case and you're not alone -- deal but we -- case.
Long has worked to help.
The jury did -- bobbled once out of the other that's part of -- that right do write in.
And so when did they see a a a -- case that's built the point.
George Zulu of V and it's ideal person his credibility it was probably too much care for everybody -- his case.
State of Florida when I teach that counselor but they weren't successful and one of the reasons they weren't successful is because of the federal investigation.
But anyway look I understand what you're saying is a lot of subtleties involved.
But I just hope that you and and the Martin family.
Will accept the verdict as part of our justice system -- -- I mean -- you wouldn't accept it we always -- the bird would disagree with its.
And that's fine and we respect your opinion on that we appreciate you coming on tonight.
