They hardly missed a minute of the trial but they elected not to appear as the verdict was read trade bonds by the Tracy -- tweeting just minutes after here in the right.
God blessed me and Sabrina would -- and even -- death I know my baby proud of the fight we all along with all of you put up for him with god bless.
One of the mark -- attorneys jasmine ran joins us jasmine -- -- -- doing.
Pretty well this evening -- -- obviously disappointed at the outcome of not guilty and like to point out -- not guilty does not necessarily mean that George Zimmerman was innocent and we still maintain that position as his legal counsel.
And his family I think you know the last couple of days has been disheartening for Tracy and Sabrina but we have had an outcry of support.
From the nation and from the international community we've -- statements from President Obama.
From attorney general Eric Holder so we are hopeful that -- may still get some justice for trade on.
Yes you say get to justice for trade -- first until I had -- it's terrible what it was some of those in life.
But here's here's the story is that the prosecution.
Pick that -- with the defense.
The prosecution agreed to that jury with the defense.
The jury heard all the evidence.
The prosecution didn't get -- -- from presenting any evidence as far as I know.
And the jury didn't decided the case and everybody was happy when that jury.
And then suddenly after the jury renders its verdict.
Suddenly everyone's dissatisfied -- -- but summer just says by the curious -- -- lousy job -- heard different trial or didn't listen to the case what happened -- the jury in the beginning.
You know art style legal team has never said that we -- happy with the cherry or that we like -- -- Jerry.
We never specifically endorse the Jerry -- certainly did the prosecution must -- did they help pick at their right there in the courtroom there there every single day pick -- at -- I'm not the prosecution on the family attorney and from the from the family attorneys perspective.
We never endorse that Jerry Weaver is easy -- and -- -- that is the standing locked.
I -- -- and turn it.
I do not believe that trade bond that equal justice in this instance as specifically how.
How many evidence he can only -- evidence that the jury didn't hear.
The evidence that the jury didn't hear right.
I I don't think that they properly considered the evidence if they had listened to the evidence and -- -- -- followed the lots.
Then George Zimmerman would have been convicted of murder well I mean he got out of the car he got a I can't -- -- gun.
-- -- Right.
Yes and oh yeah what are the -- it we assigned the job to weigh the facts we -- them we make them sit there a lot of time that I'd be there.
We then present the evidence and the judge -- says here's -- evidence here's along instructional law and it's your duty it's not mine it's not yours not gave us a quick but does the jury's duty to -- -- -- well also -- suddenly.
After -- -- say they can't do their job.
-- greater duty beyond being an attorney and that's to be a social engineer and when a lot doesn't get it right.
I believe that we have the right to peacefully and more elite conscientiously object to -- decision of the -- that doesn't mean that we believe that is going to be overturned or that it will -- that we don't respect the decision that those six people -- But their millions of people out there who don't agree with that decision so it's.
Not just the -- know what the problem is -- -- -- let's just thirty that's fourteen all over the world that's deeply disturbing they -- millions are out there didn't see it you know and I know.
That millions of people who may not like a verdict whether it's for and against this case or another didn't watch the case didn't sit in the -- Didn't weigh the evidence didn't listen the jury instructions that's just noise that's why we have -- systems is so that people listen to both sides have an opportunity to be heard -- social engineering I don't know that's more like social manipulation the social I don't know what social engineering -- But actually just this is presented in the courtroom with a jury decided -- both sides seven an opportunity.
That's justice and the -- side and it.
Courtrooms not always delivered justice as I'm sure you well know you're aware of the civil rights movement.
Near -- the changes that we high you know what I have been in the story Heidi I'm -- -- in my career up next year in terms of civil rights and what we've done in the courtroom floor for poor people up -- my -- up next yours any day want jasmine.
I just don't criticize -- I don't criticizing your -- I haven't been practicing at lot as long as you have but I -- -- an opportunity to finish my answers and explain my answers -- you.
Go ahead yet -- -- in an ally of I think that when I'm talking about being a social engineer George -- never would have been arrested if it wasn't an outcry.
From black people brown people white people Republicans.
Democrats Christians and -- loans.
In this nation who demanded his arrest.
He was then arrested and he was tried by a jury of his peers I cannot believe that the -- the jury got it right and the federal government has every right to bring -- -- that's why we have federal preemption.
Gentlemen thank -- for much for joining us so I -- a hard time but thanks for joining us.
