To hide and then confront

The most recent submission by the defense team refers to text messages from the 26th February that may explain why Trayvon Martin hid and then confronted Zimmerman rather than going home. This seems to suggest that the defense has evidence that Martin did not go home. If so, does that mean he did not stash […]

The Hearing of May 28th

In a few hours we will learn how far the corruption of the American judiciary and society has gone . Several matters will be discussed. Among them will be whether the judge will admit evidence from “expert” witnesses, Alan Reich and Tom Owen. It will be appalling although perhaps not surprising, if such evidence  is […]

The Journey to Sanford

Previously I noted that Tracy Martin had testified that he had driven Trayvon to a point halfway between Miami and Sanford and handed him over to Brandy Green who then took him to her home in Sanford.

Dempere […]

The Reich Report 2

This is from a story in the Seattle Times of 1996 [my bold]. If Reich’s evidence is not allowed in a gross misdemeanor case should it be allowed in a murder trial?   Prosecutors say they still have a case against the superintendent of the Issaquah School District even though a District Court judge ruled […]
