Processed audio is at the first link.


More on audio forensics
Good info Kev.

While I have been saying the screams are the key to the case I don't don't think that argument gains a lot here. Zimmerman has to claim the screams. He can't claim that Trayvon is violent and threatening his life while just sitting on top of him looking into his eyes while he, Zim, screams help me. It is obvious that there is no pummeling going or a head being negotiated on concrete in those screams. His cross examination is going to be brutal.

I don't know if the audio guy had hooked on phonics but I definitely don't hear the P sound in punks at all so I don't know how well that one works. How do yall hear it???

This is CNN's video where they determine it says "it's fcking cold".

Honestly, every time I read that it's something new and then I listen to the tape, I hear whatever I just read. It's too soft and distorted to truly make it out and we are all subject to the power of suggestion.

Basically he is looking to sell his bullshit product/company and get his 15 minutes. That "state of the art" program he used to determine this? Dude made it himself. And it costs $5000.

He's also got a quote on his own website where he basically says the comparison he made is impossible.
In general, most journalist have participated in piece-meal with this story. Even the newscaster tried to distance himself from the story by saying he didn't hear it. More than likely he didn't agree with it. But I do think other people will be involved at this level when it's said and done.

Still can be hit with a civil suite or civil rights violations even without that.

Anybody else see this story on George Zimmerman's Lawyers? They apparently have drop him as client because they cant get in contact with him..

his own (former) lawyers are painting a bad picture of this guy. He's starting to sound like a flight risk.

I work in the courts, co I pretty much know what that means when the attorneys can't get in touch with the clients.

Quote:
The special prosecutor, Florida State Attorney Angela Corey, has alerted the media that she "is preparing to release new information" about her investigation within the next 72 hours. Reporters will be alerted three hours before the news conference, which is to be held in either Sanford or Jacksonville.
Quote:
Corey's office says in its news release that media access will be limited "because of safety concerns."

no reason for there to be 'safety concerns' if she was about to announce he's being charged .. then again it says 'release new information' .. maybe she hasn't made a decision yet ?

That's what I would do. Get out of the country for good. He can go wherever he wants, he hasn't been charged with anything.
