Actually, you were ok till number 4. The county declined to press charges.
Race must enter tbe picture, because that is what caused George to be arrested.
The police felt, and testified to the fact, they did not feel that George was guilty, that he legally practiced self defense.
Benjamin Crump, family attorney for Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, arranged to hire a publicist. The publicist met with, among others, Mayor
Tripplett, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and many others. He also went to the alphabet soup MSM, ABC, CBS, NBC, et al.
They arranged marches, demonstrations, petitions, etc. Meantime, in the background, Crump was contacting people, getting records, including the
recording of the 911 call, Trayvons' phone contacts, etc. They contacted the 16 year old DeDe, and after a lot of back and forth, a handwritten letter
and texts to Sybrina Fulton, Crump arranged to fly DeDe to meet Tracy and Sybrina.
During this meeting, DeDe gave Sybrina the letter, they talked, and she agreed to be interviwed by Crump. However, instead of doing it in person, they
flew her back home, and did it over the phone. Her parents absolutely refused to allow her to have anything to do with ths case besides the
Crump, Sybrina, Tracy, and an ABC news crew were all present when Crump recorded the interview with DeDe. Portions of it were played on national
television, and the race crew went to work on the public again.
Instead of going to the Grand Jury, who would likely have returned a no bill due to lack of evidence, Angela Corey was assigned to the case, who then
filed her own indictment. Fearing increased racial tensions and repercussion, the D.A. sid not file charges. Angela Corey is from another district.
The rest is intermittent bits of curiosities, like the judge disallowing the real DeDe tape to be played in court, because she doesn't sound like
There is a lot of suspicion surrounding that entire issue, apparently even from the defense.
They filed an emergency Writ of Certiori, asking to depose Crump, which the judge who is showing some bias, and is known as a prosecutions judge to
begin with, who promptly denied the Writ of Certiori. Just this week, the DCA, a judicial overseer, overturned her decision, both embarrassing the
judge and allowing the deposition of Crump.
Crump continues to evade, has hired an attorney, and after several attempts to depose, finally agreed to Sunday, today, at 6pm. The time was changed
to today at 2 pm.
It remains to be seen if the defense has located the real DeDe, but the judge has strictly limited the questioning in the Crump deposition, so she may
actually be present. Supposedly, they are not allowed to ask about the real DeDe, so they have to craft questions around it. Crump may or may not be
the first witness Monday, but if he is promptly callwd, one may presume the real DeDe may soon follow.
If not, Rachael Jeantel will likely be after Crump. It remains to be seen what can be dug out of this, but it is known that Crump played the 911 tape
for Tracy first, who denied it was Trayvon screaming. This brings into question Sybrina Fultons' testimony when she said she heard it the first time
at Mayor Trippletts office as well, because Crump had a press release prior to that meeting claiming he had the tapes and played it for the family.
Expect explosive testimony this week. Perhaps shocking, perhaps a case of earthshattering breaking information.
Some people may get perp walked. It just depends what the defense was able to accomplish, since this was largely orchestrated by many government
officials who are deeply involved.
Hope this helps.
