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.”
