it. Prosecution started their case.

Andrew Gough - 7/11 Employee who sold Martin skittles and a drink

tone. Defense turned.
DAY THREE AND FOUR - Rachel Jeantel "dee dee" - Caught in many lies. Said 'Crazy Ass Ceracker' wasn't racist. Rolled her eyes a lot and was
hostile to defense. Speech was very poor city eubonics type english. Prosecution tried to say english was her third language but this turned out not
to be true. Highly aggitated on first day but on second day was total opposite. Barely could be heard. Mellow. (seemed drugged to me). Totally
discredited. Defense neutralized.
Raymond MacDonald - Sr. Mgr T Mobile. Just court housekeeping stuff. No value.
Jeanna Lauer - Resident @ Twin Lakes. Made 911 call that caught the screams. She said the rain was 'steady paced which counters the state saying it
was just a drizzle. She backed up Zimmermans account. Couldn't ID Zimmerman at the scene because he was so beat up. State tried to discredit her,
their own witness, by claiming she was following Zimmermans brother on Twitter. But it was shown that she never tweeted and that it was Zimmermans
brother that was instead following her. Turned for the defense.

be 'credible'. Also that Zimmermans injuries were exaggerated but that they didn't have to be life threatening, but only that Zimmerman had to
believe his life was in danger. Said that at no time did Zimmerman express 'ill will, hatred or spite towards Martin' (All needed for Murder 2
conviction). Turned for defense.

bare hands during procedures.

someone getting hit less than 3 times. On cross exam she admits that doing this was unscientific or unreliable (can't remember which she said) doing
it by photograph. Neutralized by the defense.
