Trayvon Martin Was Not Eligible To Graduate Due To Grades And Attendance

    In a recent interview with Esquire magazine Sybrina Fulton reveals that Trayvon had failed the State of Florida's mandatory high school exit exam. Fulton says "He did hit some trouble in his teenage years. He skipped classes and got suspended a couple times. Tracy won't go into detail, says it was just regular teenage stuff, but Sybrina's caution is overridden by her disappointment. He didn't pass the FCAT, she says. The FCAT is Florida's big standardized test. If you don't pass, you don't graduate."

   This comes as a stark contrast to previous scheme team claims that No Limit Astronaut was an honor roll student with mostly A's and B's.

Ted Nugent Tells It Like It Is

The Scheme Team Fails Again: Stand Your Ground Stay With No Major Changes

   PENSACOLA — As a task force on Florida's much-debated "stand your ground" law finished its final meeting Tuesday, its draft report recommended no sweeping changes to the statute and a key legislative leader said he would not favor such changes if they were recommended. Florida's incoming House speaker told The Associated Press that he doesn't support big changes to stand your ground, which allows people to use deadly force — rather than retreat, as the law previously required — if they believe their lives are in danger.

Gov. Rick Scott created the task force and charged it with reviewing the law because of widespread protests following the fatal shooting in February of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Sanford. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and claims he was defending himself under the law. The shooting caused public outrage and sparked debate about the law. Will Weatherford, who has been selected by the GOP caucus to be House speaker, said the Sanford shooting was a "sad tragedy," and that he is willing to review the recommendations. But Weatherford said he remains a firm believer in the Second Amendment. "What we won't do is use that tragedy as an excuse to water down people's ability to defend themselves in Florida," Weatherford said. The task force reiterated this in its first recommendation, which affirmed stand your ground. "The task force concurs with the core belief that all persons, regardless of citizenship status, have a right to feel safe and secure in our state. To that end, all persons have a fundamental right to stand their ground and defend themselves from attack with proportionate force in every place they have a lawful right to be and are conducting themselves in a lawful manner," the draft recommendation stated. Among the task force conclusions: The Legislature should look at whether stand your ground gives shooters immunity from detention or arrest during a shooting investigation. Okaloosa Sheriff Larry Ashley, a task force member, said there is some confusion among law enforcement about what immunity means and how it should be applied. "I think, from law enforcement perspective, the question is what does `criminal prosecution' mean, does it mean that we can or cannot detain someone? I believe that some law enforcement agencies believe that they are hindered in their investigation," Ashley said. Other task force members said they were concerned that self-defense shooters might have to pay for legal representation. Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala and a sponsor of the original law, said he believes the Sanford case proved that law officers can detain and interrogate a self-defense shooter when investigators have questions about the circumstances of the shooting. But Baxley said law-abiding shooters shouldn't have to fear a jury trial. "Every law-abiding citizen shouldn't have to lawyer up," he said. The task force also recommended that the Legislature review standards for neighborhood watch groups to define the role of neighborhood watch participants "as limited to observing, watching, and reporting potential criminal activity to law enforcement." The task force said a neighborhood watcher's purpose is not "to pursue, confront, or provoke potential suspects."

A Profile of Traytard Insanity: Eric Jordan - Garrett

    By now most of George Zimmerman's supporters are familiar with serial spammer and bottomless fountain of hate Eric Jordan-Garrett. Today I thought I would bring you a "Greatest Hits Collection" of Eric's most ignorant and hate fueled moments.

In this sample, butthurt moron Eric asks that Shellie Zimmerman's nursing license is revoked. Unfortunately for Eric, Shellie is still a student and not yet licensed.


In this sample, butthurt moron Eric asks Angela Corey's office to Fire Mark O'Mara as George's defense attorney.

 In this sample, butthurt moron Eric asks Angela Corey's office to overrule the Fifth District Court Of Appeals and re-instate Judge Lester.

   In this next sample of Eric's foolishness and deep seated racism, the butthurt moron is petitioning for a reduction in Olivia Moody's sentencing but idiot Eric intentionally leaves out several important pieces of information. 1. Moody's victim was shot in the back 2. Moody's victim was traying to run away when she was shot in the back and 3. Moody was offered a plea bargain that included no prison time whatsoever which Moody rejected outright thinking she could beat the charges by claiming self defense (not sure how shooting someone in the back who is running away is self defense). In the meantime this delusional retard Eric is screaming for a 60 year sentence for Mr Zimmerman who was in fact savagely attacked by Trayvon Martin and this is independently confirmed by multiple eyewitnesses, three paramedics, multiple law enforcement officers, and a physicians assistant.

The irony is rich in this sample of butthurt moron Eric's foolishness because it was rabid uninformed idiots like him who helped drive Robert and Gladys from their home yet Eric thinks he has the right to the demand that they stop asking for help with their increased living expenses that idiots like Eric helped incurr.

"Straight From The Hip"

Did Trayvon Martin Change Clothes Prior To Attacking George Zimmerman

 From Officer Ayala's investigative reports describing Trayvon Martin:

   Zimmerman:  A dark hoodie, like a grey hoodie, and either jeans or sweatpants and white tennis shoes.

Officer Ayala: wearing a gray sweater, blue jeans, and white/red sneakers.

Neither Zimmerman's or Ayala's description match the 7-11 video.

Trayvon Martin Abused The Street Drug "Lean"

 Lean Cocktail Recipe

To create Lean, a popular drink originated from Houston Texas, you require the following for the original formula:

-Promethazine w/Codeine VC <- Sizzurp (active ingredient)
-Original Sprite Soda <- Mixing ingredient (although different flavors of sprite are now used, such as sprite remix)
-Jolly rancher candy <- Flavor additive

Put it all in a styrofoam cup and enjoy. The codeine is mainly responsible for the euphoric feeling after drinking lean. Promethazine causes motor skill impairment, lethargy, extreme drowsiness, as well as a disassociative feeling from all other parts of the body, specifically the stomach and digestive system. If it doesn't have promethazine w/ Codeine, it isn't real sizzurp.

The mixed drink combination known as "lean", is normally the color purple, due the added ingredient sizzurp, which is originally a dark purple syrup. There are other colors of sizzurp which can be added to create lean, but the purple is the true sizurp

Lean does not contain ANY form of alcohol, crushed pills, or other liquids in general.

This is just one of many Lean recipes. Another polular recipe involves Arizona Watermelon Juice  Cocktail and Skittles for flavoring....which is exactly what Saint Skittles had in his possession.

Eyewitness Confirms Trayvon Martin Was The Real Attacker

A Second Eye Witness Confirms Trayvon Martin Was The Attacker

Mark O'Mara: Race Is Not The Issue

    Mark O'Mara, the attorney for George Zimmerman, talked to me for a story on media coverage of the Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin story.
We spoke Wednesday at his offices in downtown Orlando. We talked about the case, the coverage and his client, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of  Martin.
O'Mara became familiar to many in Central Florida for his analysis of the Casey Anthony case for WKMG-Channel 6. Here's an edited version of our conversation:

(click link to read the original article)

Q. What's your general impression so far of the media coverage of your client?
A. "It's the second Casey Anthony case. It it getting an enormous amount of coverage everywhere. Literally, I get calls from [the] BBC and other foreign stations and all the national media here and all the local. It is unfathomable to me how much coverage it was getting the first hour or the first 20 minutes that I was involved in the case. We literally had a crescent of 85, 90 reporters and 30 cameras here.

"Though that has stopped, the phone calls really haven't. I got 2,000 emails from different media outlets in the first three days I was involved in the case. Obviously, it's calmed down over time. It ebbs and flows a little bit when some discovery comes out. The quantity has been outstanding.
"The quality of coverage, I think it's good, and everyone wants to have something to say about it. My concern about the coverage, initially, was the first few couple of weeks set the stage for how this case was presented. That has been very frustrating to me. It was frustrating to me before I was involved in the case. I didn't like the way it was being handled, even though I wasn't involved in it."
Q. Handled by whom?
 A. "I think the way the media looked at this case. They took a tragic event, made some initial determinations and then ran with those determinations. I know it sounds like I'm arguing on behalf of my client. But the media were the first to pick up on a 5-year-old, 275-pound George Zimmerman, looking like it was a mug shot, and juxtaposed that to a 12-year-old picture of Trayvon Martin. And suggested that was the battle that ensued that night. The facts came out fairly quickly that that wasn't true. If I had a frustration, it was that media seemed to be holding on to the sensationalist view of the facts of the case rather than a realistic view."
Q. What do you mean by the second Casey Anthony case?
A. "In Central Florida, we seemed to have gotten them back to back. The frenzy that was Casey Anthony, the national media that sort of descended upon Florida, realized that Florida has very open discovery, we have open records and we have cameras in the courtroom. That perfect storm of media frenzy that can be built around a criminal case, they learned those lessons with Casey Anthony. As soon as George Zimmerman's case happened they almost automatically said, 'Move this model from Casey Anthony over to George Zimmerman.' That's why I mention it as the second Casey Anthony. Certainly there were some outside media personalities who got involved and saw an opportunity that was not necessarily directly related to the case.
"In terms of the George Zimmerman case, I think a lot of people ran with the idea this was a racially motivated case, when there was no support to it. Rev. [Al] Sharpton came down, Rev. [Jesse] Jackson came down. Ben Crump. They got involved and seemingly took an event, and I think what they did, from talking to Ben Crump, was they perceived that a social injustice was happening. That social justice was that because it was a young black male who was the victim of a violent event that it wasn't that big a deal and that Sanford police department thought that and so did the rest of everybody.
"That seemed to be their perspective, and that this was an opportunity to have a conversation about the way young black males are poorly treated in the criminal-justice system. As I said to Ben Crump, 'I would be on the same side of the podium in having that conversation as Ben or Rev. Sharpton, because my life has been committed to 30 years' worth of criminal-defense practice.' If you look at my criminal-defense practice, a certain percentage of that is handling young black males in the criminal-justice system and having to fight the way they are treated. I well know those arguments and those concerns.
"The problem I have with this case is, early on, it became apparent to me and to those who looked at it, that Sanford PD did not do a poor job in the investigation of the case. I've seen poor jobs. I've seen good jobs. When I look impersonally at the way this case was handled by the Sanford Police Department, I see they brought him into custody, they questioned him, they had several questioning sessions with him. Some of them were friendly. Some of them were a little more confrontational. Some were very confrontational. Looking at the investigation itself, you have all of that.
"You have at least two canvassing of the area. They did the voice-stress analysis, which is something they don't always do. They did a re-creation of the scene by having the cops go back out there with George Zimmerman and say what happened.
"I don't think you'll see a lot of cases where they do that. Now part of that is you don't often have a willing accused who will say, 'Sure, I'll show you, I'll show you, I'll show you.' But they did that. Again, suggesting more investigation rather than less. They had him do the voice reconstruction, the screeching."
Q. All of this taken together means what?
A. "Sanford Police Department did a pretty decent job in investigating the case. Yet it was suggested at the flash point that they would say, 'It was a young black kid who was shot. Don't worry about it.' I don't think that turned out to true. If you want to have a conversation about the way young black males are treated in the criminal-justice system, let's have it. It's just this isn't the case where a young black male was inappropriately treated. What they're saying it, 'Let's have a conversation.' Go right ahead. But don't make it a media frenzy about a case that doesn't involve that."
Q. Trayvon's family and the family attorneys repeated a message like a mantra: that Trayvon was armed only with Skittles and iced tea. Does George Zimmerman have a mantra?
A. "Don't forget that the Martin family and the Crump camp have a publicity team working with them. So they crafted and created their presentation. We don't have that same luxury. That's the way they have created the case, and they have been going around the country repeating what you call a mantra. Trayvon was 17 and he was unarmed and he only had Skittles. OK, that's relevant.
"But the reality is this case is supposed to be judged upon George’s belief, whether it was reasonable, that he was in fear of great bodily injury at Trayvon's hands. To that, we look at some of the evidence. That's what we need to focus on. To turn George into something he's not for an ulterior motive is frustrating."
Q. Benjamin Crump says he has to present his civil-rights cases in the court of public opinion so they'll be heard in the court of law. What do you say?
A. "He's entitled to his opinion. I think he has certain bounds on how he presents himself as a lawyer that we are bound by as lawyers. He may have a different interpretation of what those boundaries are. It's not up to me decide. If he believes that he wants to take on as a crusade the plight of the way young black males are treated in the criminal-justice system, call me and I will help you. Because I know it well. I've actually done a lot more criminal-defense work than Ben Crump. I do know what I'm speaking of. To relate it to the George Zimmerman case, when it doesn't seem as though there's a basis for that relation, is frustrating."
Q. In the court of public opinion, have you been playing catch-up?
A. "I do understand the constraints of our Bar rules regarding how we present ourselves in the court of public opinion. There is an extraordinary amount that I could do or would do under some different set of rules if I wasn't a lawyer and didn't find myself bound by the ethical rules of not trying this case on the courtroom steps but inside the courtroom. There's a lot to be said, an enormous amount to be said in response to that which is said against us.
"They don't consider themselves bound by the same rules that I am. OK. That doesn't mean I'm going to change my perspective on what I'm bound by. I'm trying to look at the case law that I know exists with what I'm allowed to say about a case and stay well within those constraints.
"Are we playing catch-up up? They’re eons ahead of us. They're running around the country just saying whatever they want. Fine. We have our First Amendment.
"The family I'm particularly concerned about, the tragedy they've gone through. But if this is where they're finding their solace, I'm not going to begrudge them for it. I think the professionals who are involved should be held to a different standard than the family. But that's not my call.
"I have my own thoughts as to what happened that night. My thoughts matter less than anybody else's because I'm not even allowed to give my personal opinion. More importantly, I know the evidence presented that night. Regardless of how these two men, call them young men, how their lives intersected, one ended up passed away and one ended up in hiding. He will never have the life he had before that fateful night he was going to Target. And Trayvon will never grow up to be an 18-year-old because of that night.
"And that's tragic for both of them. I think I know how it happened. I think I know what the evidence is going to support as to how it happened. It doesn't mean because there's a tragedy there was a criminal act. There was just a tragedy maybe."
Q. How important is it for a lawyer to be able to talk to the media?
A. "Whatever you take on, you need to know how to do it well. This is a case, where you have to know how to handle all of those facets in a high-profile case, and the media is one of them.
Q. What skills do you need to talk to media and have they changed in recent years?
A. "It's changed a couple of ways. There's an extraordinary amount more media. Ten years ago, 15 years ago, there was the Sentinel, three stations and networks would come down for something big. Most cases wouldn't get a lot of attention. Criminal cases weren't the flash point for media attention that they are now.
"Today, literally, this [the Zimmerman case] is the best example of it, it is internationally known, and it's a fire’s cause that wont go out for another year or so, well after the trial is over. And we can use Casey Anthony as example of that. It's going to stay very huge. In that sense, you have to grow skills along the way to deal with it."
Q. How did the "Hannity" experience go for your client?
A. "George made that decision out of fear and out of need. George thought he might be arrested and never get out. This was after the million-dollar bond. So he thinks he's going back to jail and the defense fund was at low ebb. The security expenses were outrageous because he now ordered to stay in Seminole County.
"The fear was he was going back to jail and he was going to run out of money. The need was he believed that if he had gone on Sean Hannity show, that would be a shot in the arm for the defense fund. Remembering the defense fund only existed, because before my involvement, he had gone on Sean Hannity show. That is where that $200,000 came from. In a six- or eight-day period, that $200,000 came in because Sean Hannity got on his program and said to effect, 'Help George. This is a nice guy who’s being railroaded.' One day $68,000 came in.
"In George’s mind, Sean was in a sense his savior, because when Sean said, 'Please help this guy out,' he got helped out. I think George made the decision to go back on Sean because he thought it would help his defense fund. And that it was going to be necessary, because if he was back in jail, the fear was his wife Shellie would be unprotected by him."
Q. The way things have unfolded, was it a good move to go on the show?
A. "I don’t think it was. Turned out not to be. From a criminal defense attorney's perspective, it's pretty easy to say, you don't do things like that. The luxury that any criminal defendant has is not to give a statement."
Q. Why did Hannity become his savior? What did he see in George?
 A. "That he was being railroaded, that people were turning against him when the facts didn't support it. I wasn't aware of the Sean Hannity interview before I was involved in the case. What Sean Hannity said was, ‘Guys don’t rush to judgment. … How can you accuse him of anything? Wait until there's evidence.' That was sort of his mantra.
"What he was saying, don't rush to judgment. Fast-forward a couple of weeks to when I got involved, being unaware of what Sean Hannity said, my first interview was 'Let's just calm this down. I don’t know what going on yet. And if I don’t know what's going on yet, nobody else does, because I should know more than you. Let's just wait.' It echoed what Sean Hannity said.”
Q. Orlando attorney Mark NeJame told me that Mark O'Mara had a big mess to clean up when he joined the case. What do you say?
A. "That's true from a couple of perspectives. I would have loved to have been in from day one. Obviously, I may not have allowed George to make all of the statements that he made to police. I'm not concerned that he made those statements now, because I think there'll all pretty consistent. But your default position as a criminal defense attorney is don’t talk to the police, at least not until I find out what is going on so I can advise you.
"The two messes I see is the way that this case was handled by those other interests, that have a focused view of the evidence that doesn't seem to be supported by the forensic evidence. And also, unfortunately, the way his previous counsel handled the case while they were in and how they got out of it. It took George Zimmerman and made him look in a bad light."
Q. Those interests are the media?
A. "Yes, the media and people who were ostensibly representing the best interests of the Martin family but doing it in a way that I think was incendiary."
Q. Will the courtroom be far different from the coverage?
A. "There will be a major turn when we get to the courtroom. The only thing I would say to people now, if I could, is while you can enjoy the fluff of the information that's just floating out there that has no necessary basis in fact, at least take the time to do an analysis based on fact. Do both. Take the time to really look at all the evidence. We have the luxury that all that evidence is out there.
"Listen to George's tapes, look at the forensic evidence, the medical records. It was frustrating to me that it was only last week that one eyewitness sketch just came out. Why is it that it's September? And the one eyewitness who really seemed to see the event issues a sketch literally that night or the next day which is particularly relevant. It showed the man in the red shirt on the bottom and the other person on top. We know conclusively that George Zimmerman was in the red jacket. I don't know how people can look at that and say, 'I don't care. I don't need to focus on that.' That’s one of the most significant pieces of evidence. If you're going to have an opinion, consider it all."
Q. It's getting harder for people to change their minds, isn't it?
A. "We're getting cemented in incomplete evidence. If I have a frustration about what I have to deal with in a courtroom, now we have to deal with those potential jurors who have incomplete information. We need to at least sensitize them to how incomplete their information was. The media is causing some of that at least incomplete, if not pointedly wrong presentation, to those potential jurors. I'm frustrated because I've got to deal with the fallout from that. And my client has to deal with the fallout.”
Q. What's next?
A. "The self-defense immunity hearing, months away. That is intentionally what we call a pretrial motion. It's supposed to happen just before the trial. That presentation to the judge had to be as complete as we can make it."
Q. When might it happen?
 A. "Springtime. January, February maybe."
 Q. How is George?
 A. "He is stressed. He's worried. He’s worried about [his wife] Shellie, now that she’s being charged with perjury. He’s worried about himself. He’s worried that he literally cannot go out in public at all, and when he does, he has to be disguised. That he can’t work.
"Whenever I say this, people say well, 'Trayvon’s dead.' I have a very strong sensitivity to what the Martin family is going through. I don't say that because it's politically correct to say that. I've lost family members, and it sucks, particularly when it seems at though it could have been avoided.
"But having said that, if we're going to focus on George is going through, George is living in a prison caused by the fact that people think he's a racist murderer. When nothing supports the conclusion that he's a racist. The FBI tried its hardest to come back with evidence of racism. They came back with nothing. We have the anecdotal stories that George mentored two black children.
"His great-grandfather is black. He’s a non-racist, yet there is a segment of this population who refuse to believe he's not racist because of what they've been fed.
"Is he a murderer? That has yet to be determined. It's questionable as to what happened and why and how."
Q. Is there a point you want to make about the case?
A. "I'm glad I came up with a mantra the first day: 'Wait until till you know the facts of the case.' This case has gotten skewed way off the base of what that I think it should be on because people are not listening to and seeing facts. If you want to dispute facts, that’s OK. But when you go from facts to interpretation and add a healthy dose of prejudice or bias, that makes for a really volatile situation that is not healthy for the court system, not healthy for this case or Sanford or Seminole County or Florida or our country.
"We have so polarized ourselves over this case, that while it may have been a catalyst for a conversation that we need to have, it's not the way it’s working out. We’re not having the conversation. We’re just polarizing the nation. 
"I do think there is a way this situation could be handled to refocus the conversation away from the case and more to a legitimate conversation about how young black males are treated in America. But don't tie it to the results in this case. This case has nothing to do with that."

Robert Zimmerman Jr Speaks To National Association Of Hispanic Journalists

   The meeting was hosted by the Orlando chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Thursday morning.

During the meeting, Zimmerman Jr. said now is the time to speak out in person and defend his brother and his family, saying “I know that we’re not racists.”

(click link to read the original article)

At the end of the meeting, Robert Zimmerman Jr. spoke one on one with us.“Being related to George and having something to say about not just this case but the implications it’s had for my family. Like I said, I’ve had to maintain somewhat of an internet or a social media presence and for now that’s twitter but in the future it could be something else,” said George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr.

Zimmerman Jr. told journalists his siblings are Hispanic. He said they were raised by a Peruvian mother and a white father. Zimmerman Jr. said their mother raised them to love and embrace their Hispanic heritage. He said she worked in the court system for 28 years, teaching her children to respect authority and respect the law. “My mom has had the opportunity to see George. She’s his mother but George has to stay away from a situation where he could be conversing, talking to a potential witness for the state or any of the witnesses that exist now,” Robert Zimmerman Jr. explained.

George Zimmerman is out on bond and currently awaiting trial, charged with second-degree murder.
Since George Zimmerman was arrested, his brother said their family is missing taking a trip to their mother’s home country of Peru.“I stay in contact with my brother. My parents stay in contact with my brother. George stays in contact with his family. We don’t talk about our movements. Specifically, who gets to see who, were,” Zimmerman Jr. added, as he would not go into further details about his contact with George Zimmerman.

George’s brother said their family has received threats by email, voicemail and even notes at their front door. He also said using the word “murderer” to describe George Zimmerman is wrong, because he believes his brother killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

Meanwhile, he told News 13 he has nothing but the greatest respect for George Zimmerman’s Attorney Mark O’Mara. “Mark has been very ethical first and foremost on how he’s handled this case. He had a situation presented to him I think unlike any other that any other defense attorney had presented to them,” Zimmerman Jr. answered. “There was definitely racial inflection, some racial vitriol and racial overtones to the case when it landed in his lap. So in fairness to Mark, he’s had a lot to deal with. He’s done it very ethically. He’s helped us out informally along the way, when he could. When it was ethical to do so, and I have nothing but the greatest respect for Mark,” Zimmerman Jr. continued.

Timeline: Where Did George Zimmerman First See Trayvon

   A great video that addresses some timeline questions:

Prosecution Admits There Is No Evidence That George Confronted Trayvon

    In one of the prosecution's biggest embarrassments yet, lead investigator admits there is no evidence that George confronted Trayvon and there is no evidence George started the fight with Trayvon. The prosecution also admits they did not speak to their star witness until five weeks after the fact and never bothered to obtain the medical records verifying George's injuries prior to the first bond hearing.

What The Trayvon Mafia Doesn't Tell You About Witness #2

    We have been browbeaten for months about a mythological chase by the Trayvon Mafia. It does not help that butterfingers Bernie De La Rionda brings this fictional event up every opportunity he gets. There are however some very compelling portions of the witness 2 statements that Bernie and the Traybots intentionally leave out that I would like you to review.

    Before we get to how the details of her eyewitness account differ from law enforcement interview to interview, let’s establish a few facts. The first thing you need to know is that she was interviewed on three different dates: March 1st and March 9th by Investigator Chris Serino of the Sanford Police Department, and on March 20th by Investigator John Batchelor of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. There are a total of four audio files for her interviews, because there are two recordings by Chris Serino on March 1, 2012.

In terms of her actual testimony, here’s a quick summary of the contradictions:

She told authorities that she had taken out her contact lenses just before the incident. In her first recorded interview with Sanford police four days after the shooting, she told lead Investigator Chris Serino, “I saw two guys running. Couldn’t tell you who was in front, who was behind.”

She stepped away from her window, and when she looked again, she “saw a fistfight. Just fists. I don’t know who was hitting who.” [...]

That all changed when she was re-interviewed March 20 by a state agent. That time, she recalled catching a glimpse of just one running figure, she told investigator John Batchelor, and she heard the person more than saw him.

“I couldn’t tell you if it was a man, a woman, a kid, black or white. I couldn’t tell you because it was dark and because I didn’t have my contacts on or glasses…. I just know I saw a person out there.”

Lead Scheme Team Conman Ben Crump Changes His Story

    For months lead scheme team attorney Benjamin Crump has been advancing the fabricated Dee Dee narrative stating that prior to Trayvon's encounter with Mr. Zimmerman Trayvon had sought shelter from the rain by the mailboxes. A fellow Zimmerman supporter has dug up footage of predatory ambulance chaser Crump telling a much different story.

Jose Baez Joins Zimmerman Case Filing Papers That Bernie Misrepresented Facts Of Casey Anthony Case

    Jose Baez, Casey Anthony's defense attorney, this week wrote a short snippy letter to the judge in the George Zimmerman case, accusing prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda of getting his facts wrong in court Friday when he said Baez had been held in contempt of court during the Anthony trial.

Baez was fined for failing to turn over evidence, he wrote, but was never found in contempt. And the fine had nothing to do with Baez's comments to the media, something de la Rionda suggested as he tried but failed to convince Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson to impose a gag order in the Zimmerman case.

"I am certain that Mr. De la Rionda was more careful with his other argument, however, I will ask him personally to please verify his facts in the future before recklessly attempting to tarnish any other members of the Central Florida legal community," Baez wrote in his letter to Nelson.

Were Sybrina Fulton And Trayvon Martin Involved In An Intimate Relationship?

    Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, will be a guest on “The Ricki Lake Show.” The nationally syndicated talk show airs at 4 p.m. Thursday on WRBW-Channel 65.

Martin was fatally shot by Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman on Feb. 26 in Sanford. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. The trial is scheduled to start June 10.

In the Lake interview, Fulton discusses her feeling of loss and her son’s character.

“He was a very loving teenager … He still would sleep in my bed and talk on the phone,” Fulton says. “You know, he was just a regular teenager. … He used to call me Cupcake. … I just didn’t get enough kisses from him, enough hugs from him … My heart is just hurtful right now. I think I cried a pool of tears.”

Martin Family to New Black Panthers: We Don't Want Your Support

Angela Corey Intentionally Edits Shellie Zimmerman's Statements To Bring Perjury Charges

    In a move inspired by George Soros's whackadoodle liberal lunatics at NBC News Special Prosecutor Angela Corey intentionally edited Shellie Zimmerman's statements in order to bring perjury charges against her to try to force George into a plea bargain.

Mark O'Mara Announces George Zimmerman Will Not Plead Out

    At the September Gun Rights Policy Conference where Mark O'Mara was a guest speaker, one thing was made perfectly clear. George Zimmerman will NOT be pleading out. George Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara who is adamant that, given the preponderance of evidence in his client’s favor, they’re not looking for a deal to avoid going to trial. In his estimation, the broken nose Zimmerman suffered at the hands of Trayvon Martin (moreso than the cuts on the back of his head) is proof positive the altercation was started by the Skittles-scarfing yoot, and that GZ acted in self defense. O’Mara also let slip that, in order to try to catch Zimmerman in a lie, the Sanford police told him they had a surveillance video of the whole thing. Only they don’t. And Zimmerman stuck to his story.

Confirmation Bias

    As the eighth month of the George Zimmerman murder case comes to a close we have seen some exciting developments regarding the defense's discovery. The key players in the scheme team plot to extort a payoff by railroading concerned citizen George Zimmerman have been exposed in a court of law. As the scheme team's plan continues to unravel in the public forum we will certainly be shocked by the lengths these depraved opportunists have gone to deceive and defraud the global media audience. 

    The scheme team rhetoric has been effective in a certain crosssection of society and we continue to hear the Traybots hammer away at the same refuted or irrelevant arguments for months. The question before us is what compels the Trayvon Mafia to seek out these meaningless points and flooding YouTube and the blogosphere with their fallacious nonsense? The answer is confirmation bias.

confirmation bias

"It is the peculiar and perpetual error of the human understanding to be more moved and excited by affirmatives than by negatives." --Francis Bacon

Confirmation bias refers to a type of selective thinking whereby one tends to notice and to look for what confirms one's beliefs, and to ignore, not look for, or undervalue the relevance of what contradicts one's beliefs. For example, if you believe that during a full moon there is an increase in admissions to the emergency room where you work, you will take notice of admissions during a full moon, but be inattentive to the moon when admissions occur during other nights of the month. A tendency to do this over time unjustifiably strengthens your belief in the relationship between the full moon and accidents and other lunar effects.

This tendency to give more attention and weight to data that support our beliefs than we do to contrary data is especially pernicious when our beliefs are little more than prejudices. If our beliefs are firmly established on solid evidence and valid confirmatory experiments, the tendency to give more attention and weight to data that fit with our beliefs should not lead us astray as a rule. Of course, if we become blinded to evidence truly refuting a favored hypothesis, we have crossed the line from reasonableness to closed-mindedness.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that people generally give an excessive amount of value to confirmatory information, that is, to positive or supportive data. The "most likely reason for the excessive influence of confirmatory information is that it is easier to deal with cognitively" (Gilovich 1993). It is much easier to see how a piece of data supports a position than it is to see how it might count against the position. Consider a typical ESP experiment or a seemingly clairvoyant dream: Successes are often unambiguous or data are easily massaged to count as successes, while negative instances require intellectual effort to even see them as negative or to consider them as significant. The tendency to give more attention and weight to the positive and the confirmatory has been shown to influence memory. When digging into our memories for data relevant to a position, we are more likely to recall data that confirms the position (ibid.).

Researchers are sometimes guilty of confirmation bias by setting up experiments or framing their data in ways that will tend to confirm their hypotheses. They compound the problem by proceeding in ways that avoid dealing with data that would contradict their hypotheses. For example, some parapsychologists used to engage in optional starting and stopping in their ESP research. Experimenters might avoid or reduce confirmation bias by collaborating in experimental design with colleagues who hold contrary hypotheses, as Richard Wiseman (skeptic) and Marilyn Schlitz (proponent) have done.* Individuals have to continually remind themselves of this tendency and actively seek out data contrary to their beliefs. Since this is unnatural, it appears that the ordinary person is doomed to bias.

Sanford Police Had Asked Residents To Report All Suspicious Activity Due To Increased Crime

Residents say there is a rising tide of crime in their neighborhoods, and they are blaming the homeless population for much of it.

Homelessness has been a mainstay on the streets of Sanford for decades, but the tattered economy has worsened the problem. At the last City Commission meeting, about 50 citizens turned out to voice their protest against the increased number of criminal incidents occurring every day, victimizing people and property.

“I live in the historic district and I have never seen it so bad,” said Linda Surdin, who is a leader in her Neighborhood Watch group.

She said residents have been harassed and attacked by the homeless and citizens are afraid, in their homes and in the community.

“Homeless people have taken over Centennial Park,” she said.

Meanwhile, Sanford resident Gloria Baskerville said crime is not limited to the historic district or perpetrated just by the homeless. She said drug dealing and prostitution is done in the open in her neighborhood.

And, as the City Commission listened to the crime stories being told, they nodded in acknowledgement.

“We hear a lot about this and it is time for us to figure out the best way to address this,” said Mayor Jeff Triplett. “It’s in your front yard and nobody knows better than you what is going on.”

While Surdin commended the Sanford Police Department for being “very responsive,” she said something more needs to be done. She asked commissioners to adopt tighter controls over panhandling and feeding the homeless.

City Commissioner Patty Mahany told the audience the city is ready to act. She said city officials are looking at implementing new rules governing the activities of the homeless, based on the Orlando law that was recently upheld by a higher court.

“It’s already in the works,” she said.

Mahany also has seen criminal activity taking over the community, including her own District 4. She knows crime takes place in the open in Derby Park and near Bentley Elementary School. At the Woman’s Club of Sanford, 309 S. Oak Ave., it is almost impossible to host weddings at the nearby gazebo because of people loitering.

The gazebo at Centennial Park is a favorite hangout spot for the homeless. On almost any day, all day, homeless people can be seen under the gazebo, seeking shade from the hot sun and a place to congregate.

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee confirmed that crime is up as the economy continues to sputter. From April through June, more than 300 burglaries and 400 thefts have been reported in the city.

“We’ve got a significant problem with burglaries and thefts,” Lee stated.

And no one is immune, he said, adding that he himself has been a victim of crime.

Residents at the City Commission meeting recounted numerous examples of their own.

A homeowner who has lived on Elm Street for 26 years said crime is rampant. On Christmas Day last year, he left his home for only an hour, but he returned to find his entire set of lawn furniture gone.

“The crime in my area has been real bad,” he said. “The alleys are the hotspots.”

Another resident in the historic district also recently had their patio furniture stolen—along with a grill, lawn chairs, five trashcans and a jade plant that had special sentimental value because it came from her mother’s funeral.

A woman who lives on South Park Avenue has taken to riding her bike, instead of jogging, saying a bicycle allows her to better avoid being accosted, which happens regularly.

“I truly don’t feel safe anymore,” she said.

Businessman Sylvester Chang cited a litany of issues prevalent along French Avenue, including drug dealing, loitering, prostitution and homelessness. One of the hotels near 25th Street has become a “homeless hotel,” he said, attracting a bad element that also brings crime.

“If they don’t have a place to stay, they might have to find somewhere else to go,” Chang stated.

Other residents blamed charitable groups for drawing homeless people to the downtown area, saying the free meals offered also serve as a magnet. But the ‘enabling versus empowering’ debate was not going to be resolved on this night. Rather, the focus was on crime prevention.

But the answer does not lie solely with law enforcement, Chief Lee explained. Combating crime requires the assistance of everyone in the community.

“The police officers can’t do it all by themselves. We need your eyes and ears to let us know when things are going on,” the chief said. “It truly is a partnership.”

However, the police department has stepped up its patrolling to curb criminal activity. Recently, Chief Lee directed officers to use the department’s two golf carts to impede the spread of home burglaries. Normally used for special events, these miniature vehicles allow police added maneuverability to go down alleyways, into parks and up onto sidewalks to curtail crime.

Sanford Police Sgt. David Morgenstern said his department is aware of the safety issue at Centennial Park. He is also cognizant of an increase in burglaries throughout the city.

“Our burglaries are high. When that happens, it’s going to happen everywhere,” Morgenstern said.

“Golf carts give us the ability to be at the right place at the right time to catch burglaries in progress, which is rare.”

Bicycles are also useful to thwart property crimes, he said, allowing police to monitor areas quietly and thoroughly.

He added that the burglaries do not stem from the truly needy individuals who find themselves on the street.

“Those who choose to be homeless are the folks we deal with. That’s the segment we deal with the most,” he said.

Morgenstern also stressed the importance of citizen involvement.

“The public needs to call us if they see anything suspicious. When you see something that doesn’t look right, call us out there,” he said.

Citizens must avoid making it easy for criminals, he added. One homeowner had a boat parked on his property near the alley, with little thought given to security. Eventually, thieves stole an expensive fish-finder device from the boat.

“That just invites the criminal element. Don’t leave valuables out in the open,” Morgenstern said. “Don’t make yourself a target. These are mostly crimes of opportunity.”

To help homeowners protect their property, SPD provides a home-security check. The Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) program is a pro-active approach that offers residents tips on how they can reduce the chance of a home burglary. For more information on CPTED, contact Wendy Dorival, SPD volunteer program coordinator.

A citizen offered another pro-active suggestion to foil crooks.

Denny Gibbs said her family has had three sets of bikes and thousands of dollars of tools taken from their property. Neighbors need to watch out for each other, she said, and part of this defense is knowing their rights.

Door-to-door salesmen are required to have a city permit. If you see someone soliciting in your neighborhood, ask him or her for documentation, she said.

Still, residents say they are increasingly uncomfortable when homeless people approach them. And they are looking to the city and the police for protection.

New laws may make a difference, but homelessness remains a complex, societal dilemma that defies a quick-fix approach.

“This won’t be resolved overnight,” Mayor Triplett said. “Homelessness has been with us forever. It’s a very difficult issue.”

Judge Nelson DENIES Prosecutions Second Attempt At Gag Order

    It's official Judge Debra Nelson has denied the prosecutions SECOND ATTEMPT at a gag order in the George Zimmerman second degree murder case

(click the link to read the full article)

(click link to read Judge Nelson's official order)

SANFORD – Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson today refused to issue a gag order in the George Zimmerman second-degree murder case.

In a two-page order, the judge wrote that she found no "overriding pattern of prejudicial commentary" and noted that media companies who had opposed the order, including the Orlando Sentinel, were right when they argued that the state had failed to demonstrate prejudice.

The judge also noted that she had several tools to make sure Zimmerman's jury is impartial. She can move the trial to another county, have attorneys question potential jurors one at a time and away from other potential panel members and, once seated, she can give stern instructions about avoiding outside sources of information.

Judge Nelson Rules Only Medical Records Pertaining To Injuries Caused By Trayvon Martin Are Relevant

    After carefully reviewing George Zimmerman's complete medical record and considering the prosecution's request to have full access to those records Judge Debra Nelson has ruled that the State will only be granted access to medical records pertaining to injuries caused by Trayvon Martin.

SANFORD – Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson is expected to announce her ruling on a state request for a gag order in the George Zimmerman second-degree murder case today.

In the meantime, her ruling on another issue was released today: She gave prosecutors fewer medical records than attorneys for Travon Martin's family had hoped. They had asked for all his medical records. Defense attorneys had squawked, saying that would violate Zimmerman's right to privacy. So the judge looked them over and handed to the state only those that she said were related to injuries Zimmerman suffered the night he shot the unarmed 17-year-old. So the judge looked them over and handed to the state only those that she said were related to injuries he suffered the night he shot the unarmed black 17-year-old.

"Any injuries received that night would clearly be relevant to a self-defense claim, as would any similar injuries present before that night or continuing symptoms after that night," she wrote. "Observations of the defendant's physical appearance surrounding the date of the shooting may also be relevant. However, other medical records relating to the treatment of untreated maladies should not be disclosed."

During a news conference on the courthouse lawn Oct. 19, about two hours before attorneys presented their case to the judge, family attorney Benjamin Crump called for the release of Zimmerman's prescription records.That would be key, he said, to understanding the mind of his son's killer.The judge's ruling, though, kept those under wraps.

Gag The Scheme Team Lawyers For Violating Judge Lesters Order

    In yet another high quality article Jerralyn Merrit at Talkleft discusses how the Martin lawyers have violated Judge Kenneth Lester's orders regarding extrajudicial comments and should be subject to a gag order. (to view the original article click the link)

an excerpt from the article:

As I wrote here, the Martin family lawyers are clearly involved with the prosecution. They gathered evidence for the investigation of Zimmerman -- such as Witness 8's statements about her telephone calls with Trayvon Martin the night he was shot. The state relied on Witness 8's statements for probable cause in its affidavit to charge Zimmerman with second degree murder. Crump's interview of Witness 8 was released in discovery along with the state's later interview of her. The state was unaware of Witness 8 until Crump announced her existence at a press conference on March 20 and played a recording of his interview with her, which he described to some reporters as an affidavit. The state has listed Witness 8 as a trial witness. Their clients, Trayvon Martin's parents, are listed as trial witnesses. Angela Corey, in her press conference announcing charges, thanked the Martins' lawyers for their "daily assistance" communicating updates from their office to the Martins. She said:

I want to especially thank Mr. Crump and Mr. Parks, who have stayed in touch daily with us on behalf of our victim's family. Remember, it is Trayvon's family that are our constitutional victims and who have the right to know the critical stages of these proceedings.

Judge Lester warned all lawyers associated with the case in his April 30 order denying the request for the gag order. He wrote that the lawyers for the parties (the state and Mr. Zimmerman) have acted with the utmost professionalism and no gag order on them is warranted. He then reminded lawyers "connected to" the case and "their agents" that they are also subject to Florida ethical rules for lawyers on extrajudicial comments and are subject to discipline if they violate the rules. He wrote:

All attorneys are ethically obligated to follow the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar and may be subject to discipline for violating those rules. With regard to those attorneys connected to this case (or their agents) who choose to speak to the media must keep specifically in mind Rule 4-3.6, which states:

a) Prejudicial Extrajudicial Statements Prohibited.

A lawyer shall not make an extrajudicial statement that a reasonable person would expect to be disseminated by means of public communication if the lawyer knows or reasonably should know that it will have a substantial likelihood of materially prejudicing an adjudicative proceeding due to its creation of an imminent and substantial detrimental effect on that proceeding.

b) Statements of Third Parties.

A lawyer shall not counsel or assist another person to make such a statement. Counsel shall exercise reasonable care to prevent investigators, employees, or other persons assisting in or associated with a case from making extrajudicial statements that are prohibited under this rule.

Let's compare the state's list of public comments by O'Mara to just a smattering of those by Benjamin Crump and his associate, Natalie Jackson. (All transcripts via

Benjamin Crump, March 20, 2012 Press Conference

“George Zimmerman, this neighborhood association loose cannon”

....“So this claim that Trayvon Martin was the aggressor is preposterous. And it cannot be allowed to stand because we have all the evidence now. We have three independent witnesses who say in their backyard -- and they came forward, they don't know the Martin family at all, they don't have a dog in this fight. They are just good people telling what they observed. What they heard. And what they heard was it was the kid Trayvon Martin, screaming out for help on that 911 call.”

.... “This young lady connects the dots. She connects the dots. She completely blows Zimmerman's absurd defense claim out of the water. “

....“ She says he is his regular self, all this stuff about him being high and stuff is preposterous. It's what Zimmerman wants you to believe so he can justify killing this kid in cold blood.”

....“Now, you go back and listen to George Zimmerman's 911 call, I request, I implore and I beg you on behalf of Sabrina Martin and Tracy Martin, I implore you to listen to him, listen how he's talking, how his words slur and you scratch your head and ask yourself, why didn't the Sanford Police Department do a drug and alcohol analysis on him?”

....“We have three independent witnesses who say in their backyard -- and they came forward, they don't know the Martin family at all, they don't have a dog in this fight. They are just good people telling what they observed. What they heard.”

“And what they heard was it was the kid Trayvon Martin, screaming out for help on that 911 call.”

Natalie Jackson on Nancy Grace New Developments in Trayvon Martin Case, CNN March 27, 2012: (Opining on George Zimmerman's supposedly different versions of the shooting and whose voice is on a 911 call):

JACKSON: The first story was Trayvon dragged him out of the car and attacked him. The second story was he was looking at -- he was looking for street signs to tell the police where he was, and Trayvon attacked him. Now we hear that Trayvon had somehow attacked him from behind and knocked him down.

Trayvon was found dead -- his body was found face down in the ground with his arms under him. That is not someone who was on top of a person beating them. It`s more consistent with the witnesses statements that Mr. Zimmerman was on top. There are witnesses that state that.

When they say there`s a 13-year-old boy who says that Zimmerman was there, we have evidence that the police told witnesses that it was Zimmerman, not who they thought, Trayvon on the ground. The police have totally -- they`ve totally been very inappropriate and conducted this so- called investigation...

Natalie Jackson on The Last Word for MSNBC April 9, 2012: (Opining on Gunshot and Voices on 911 Tape)

Lawyers Natalie Jackson and Benjamin Crump insisted then that they could hear two shots on one 911 call, a warning shot and a kill shot, and that that proved Zimmerman was a murderer.

"You hear a shot, a clear shot then you hear a 17-year-old boy begging for his life, then you hear a second shot," Jackson said.

GUN IN TEEN'S SLAYING FIRED ONCE, NOT TWICE Sun-Sentinel,March 20, 2012 (Natalie Jackson Claiming Police Coverup;and Opining on Evidence; and advancing theory as to why Zimmerman shot Martin):

“This is amazing,” family attorney Natalie Jackson said. “The police have been covering up from the start. The most alarming thing was hearing a 17-year-old pleading for his life and someone still pulling the trigger.”

She said calls from other witnesses who heard or saw the incident from their window appeared to back up their claim that it was Zimmerman who had the upperhand throughout the altercation. “Racism doesn’t make you go get a gun and shoot someone,” Jackson said. “Racism makes you profile them. What made him shoot was that he was one of them; he felt he was a cop.”

The state is completely ignoring its obligation under Florida's Special Rules for Prosecutors and ABA standards (adopted by Florida)(" Florida has adopted the American Bar Association Standards of Criminal Justice Relating to Prosecution Function. This is the product of prolonged and careful deliberation by lawyers experienced in criminal prosecution and defense and should be consulted for further guidance."):

b) A prosecutor should exercise reasonable care to prevent investigators, law enforcement personnel, employees, or other persons assisting or associated with the prosecutor from making an extrajudicial statement that the prosecutor would be prohibited from making under this Standard.

The state should be complying with its obligation to exercise reasonable care in preventing those associated with the prosecution to refrain from making prejudicial comments prosecutors are not allowed to make by moving for an order restricting the comments of the Martin family lawyers. While the state's motion, if granted today, could well include them, the state has not once referred to their inflammatory, prejudicial and in many instances, highly disputed and dubious comments and Judge Nelson said she hasn't watched or read the news coverage of the case. So on her own, she would have no idea.

There is no need for a gag order on the defense. If one is issued, it should include all lawyers associated with the case. And the state should be taken to task for not alerting the court to the need for the Martin family lawyers' comments to be restricted.

Nor should the order, if granted, prevent Mark O'Mara from continuing to post publicly available pleadings on his website and inform the public as to the course of court proceedings. As the media points out and the commentary to Florida's Rule 4-3.6 states:

[The public] has a legitimate interest in the conduct of judicial proceedings, particularly in matters of general public concern. Furthermore, the subject matter of legal proceedings is often of direct significance in debate and deliberation over questions of public policy.

Don't be fooled by those claiming the Judge has no authority to restrict the comments of lawyers not representing parties to the case. It's done frequently. Examples: Roger Clemens and Kobe Bryant. Some judges even gag witnesses but not the lawyers. From the Kobe Bryant order:

A lawyer or law enforcement agency or officer who is participating or has participated in the investigation or litigation of this matter, the alleged victim, Defendant and witnesses shall not make an extrajudicial statement that a reasonable person would expect to be disseminated by means of public communication if the lawyer, law enforcement agency or officer, alleged victim or Defendant knows or reasonably should know that it will have a substantial likelihood of (1) materially prejudicing an adjudicative proceeding in this matter; or (2) interfering with the fair trial of the pending charges; or (3) otherwise prejudicing the due administration of justice.

About Those Two Forensic Audio Experts

    By now we are all familiar with the uninformed and typically uneducated Trayvon Mafia mindlessly parroting that "two audio experts proved that the screams for help did not come from Mr Zimmeran." In a largely undereported article The Daily Caller ran an article which refuted the nonsense spewed by the scheme team affialiated experts.

(click the link to see the original article)

Comparing apples to oranges

Dr. James Wayman, a San Jose State University expert in the field of speech science, told The Daily Caller that he questions the grounds on which Owen based his analysis.

Wayman also said he would be willing to testify against the admissibility of Owen’s findings on the grounds that they don’t meet the criteria required for evidence in federal courts.

“There is no history of, or data on, the comparison of a questioned scream to a known speech sample,” Wayman said.

The problem, he said, is that the two voice samples were recorded in difficult acoustic conditions over different cell phones.

“Even if we were to have Mr. Zimmerman recreate the scream under identical conditions with the same cell phone,” Wayman explained, “it would be difficult to attribute the scream to him without a sample of a similar scream from Mr. Martin under the same conditions. This is clearly not possible.”

Reached for comment, Owen told TheDC that he has conducted his own study — “The Owen Study” — of more than 400 different pitches, screams, and voice disguises. The study is unpublished.

He explained that he has attempted, without success, to obtain a “voice exemplar” from Zimmerman, consisting of recordings of both his speaking voice and a scream.

And Wayman, he said, “assumes that the voice software is not able to make a determination on each voice independently.”

Wayman fired back in a later email exchange. “There is no accepted standard regarding metrics for voice comparisons,” he insisted, “either if done forensically or using automated comparison software.”

‘Naïve’ voice recognition

The Sentinel also contracted with Ed Primeau, a trained audio engineer and registered investigator whose expert testimony has been used in dozens of criminal court proceedings. Primeau used a more intuitive approach to determine that Zimmerman was not the person heard screaming on the 911 call.

“That’s a young man screaming,” Primeau told the Sentinel.

Comparing the human voice to a symphony full of varying timbres, Primeau wrote on his blog that the “male voice yelling for help … cracks like teen male’s does when going through puberty.”

Dr. Philip Rose of the Australian National University told TheDC that scientific experts refer to Primeau’s method as “naïve voice recognition.” His influential 2002 book Forensic Speaker Identification draws a major distinction between naïve and “technical forensics” voice recognition.

“Naïve voice recognition is so prone to error that it is acknowledged that it is worthless as evidence,” Rose said via email.

A forensic expert’s job, he said, is to assess the strength of evidence, not to estimate the probability of a hypothesis. And “the value of the evidence depends … on the similarity of the samples.”

In a properly conducted analysis, he told TheDC, “you would still have to do the comparison using screamed and phone samples, with many speakers.”

One voice authentication expert whose work is commercial in nature told TheDC that screaming, stress, and a recording’s audio quality can “wreak havoc” on voice biometric software and its ability to interpret data.

And speaking of Owen’s findings, another industry insider said that “a legitimate biometrics expert would likely refute the contentions” and suggests that these were “incendiary publicity plays.”
