Default Re: Trayvon Martin Case

O'Mara just asked the jury to pretend that Zimmerman was smart and hired a lawyer and didn't make all those self-serving statements (the ones I call lies) to the police and just put those aside. And didn't tell say "just tell my wife I shot somebody." It's like let's just pretend he wasn't there at all. If we're pretending, why not go all the way.

I agree .. lets go all the way .. lets pretend the state actually has a case and let's also pretend that this trial is supposed to be going on

HOLD THE F*CK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


O'Mara claims Trayvon had enough time to run and be home. 4 minutes to be exact.

He was a mile away. Running a mile in 4 minutes can be done by any average human being? The world record is 3 minutes and 43 seconds.

Is Trayvon Martin related to Usain Bolt?

The point is, the distance between where Zimmerman lost track of Trayvon and Trayvon's house is 100m. The defense pointing out that any human could run that in a matter of seconds, yet Trayvon had 4 minutes.

He said you can run a mile in 4 minutes if you are in pretty good shape.

Yeah, I remember it was quite a big deal historically when the "4 minute mile record" was broken. Also didn't they want to argue Trayvon was high?

Also perhaps 45 seconds after he said we're not supposed to speculate, he counters a witness's testimony by saying Trayvon Martin was actually running towards Zimmerman just before the incident started.

1600 meters.

15 seconds per 100 meters isn't far-fetched at all. I'm not in good shape, and even I manage that. For someone in good physical shape, it can be done, which is what O'Mara said. And the prosecution has painted Trayvon as "muh football player" throughout the trial, so O'Mara is using that to benefit his case as well.

If you can prove that you can run a mile in 4 minutes, I'll wire transfer you $10,000.

O'Mara didn't even use Trayvon's 'creepy ass cracker' remark as character assassination when the state has pretty much done nothing but try to assistant George's character. "I don't care about the stupid name he called him, he's seventeen years old everyone says stupid things at that age."

Based O'Mara really is too good for us.

"F*cking punks"

"These assholes".

And last, but certainly not least,


"No regrets."


Hatred. Spite. Ill Will. Along with a decorated past of reckless behavior.

Guilty of Murder 2.

But I'll take this compromise conviction of manslaughter no problem. He won't come out of prison alive.
