Devil's Rejects

I just got up to go pee and post this. Now the damn cat wants breakfast. Do I look like a #$%^&**@ morning person?

I’m going back to bed.

    Feel blessed. You woke up this morning. Also, a hungry cat always eats first.

    I have an eight-legged alarm clock.It goes off every morning at 7. It pees, it eats, and it goes back to sleep. It has a snooze function if I can get all eight legs to agree, but four of them are harder to cajole.

    On another note, having been awakened on time by said alarm clock, I was functioning in time to hear the judge has blocked the defense from entering Martin’s texts about fighting into evidence based on their being “irrelevant” and “hearsay”. I need some clarification here. Is there a legal definition of “irrelevant” that’s different from a plain old English language definition at play here? I’m pretty sure that Martin’s propensity for starting fights and bragging about it later is “relevant” to Zimmerman’s claim that Martin started the fight by the English definition of the word. And isn’t “hearsay” having someone repeat what someone else said? The texts are Martin’s own words stored for posterity. I would have thought Ms.Jeantal’s repeating what she heard Martin say in their phone conversations would be more “hearsay” than the texts. Why admit one and not the other unless you’re a member of the prosecution’s staff?

      Good question. Especially that GZ’s criminal justice course was admissable as proof he knew the law or something.

      • angienc says:

        Characterizing anything as “irrelevant” in a court of law is lazy hack jurisprudence that you would expect from a tv show about the law not anything someone who is familiar with the rules of evidence would argue. Everything is “relevant” –and thus cannot be “irrelevant” — the proper question is whether it’s probative value outweighs other factors that may be at play (i.e. it’s prejudicial nature; it’s reliability etc). Judge Nelson is a hack.

    • DandyTiger says:

      I think the main issue was the defense couldn’t prove that Martin typed those. Yeah, kind of lame because if you have a continuous record of text messages on those subjects, interaction with others, and can analyze the text along with others and show the same pattern from the same person, you’d think you could say it’s extremely likely that this text is from Martin. But it’s the not 100% thing that’s the issue I assume.

    Cats really could care less about what labels you identify yourself with. Not a morning person? Not my problem.

  5. yttik says:

    OMG, the judge “stormed out” of the Zimmerman hearing? I don’t know what actually happened, but that is the headline the news keeps reporting. Whether she actually “stormed out” or not, the news sure seems to be celebrating what really should be viewed as pretty unprofessional behavior.

      I suspect she, like many vile progs, are suffering from getting their “facts” from Al Sharpton and others with similar agendas. The forensics make this an extremely easy, open and shut case. Martin was never hit. That is, no first punches, etc. Zimmerman had the snot beat out of him. Martin was on top when he was beating Zimmerman and was shot. Zimmerman was on the bottom while being beaten and when he shot. Those are the facts from forensics. Period.

      And the law seems pretty clear. If Zimmerman felt that his life was threatened, and it’s not a stretch to see from the forensics that he could have thought that, then shooting could have been a reasonable act of self defense. It may not have been, he may not have really feared for his life. He might be a monster. But there is very reasonable doubt that he did this with malice.

      Open and shut.

      Bringing race into this is evil. It’s pushing for riots and a race war. It’s not about starting a conversation to improve race relations. Quite the opposite. It’s about politics and vile prog hate. And white guilt. And seemingly on the side of some black americans, ether politics or some really fucked up crazy psychological shit.

      In my heart I know that if she were being followed by a person who looked like TM or bronco, she’d poop her pants. But if it were a blue-eyed blond boy, she’d continue on her merry way.

      “Bottom line: In our hearts, we know that if Trayvon had been an asian girl, it is likely that my ex husband, Woody Allen, would have shtupped the living daylights out of him right under my nose while I looked the other way”

      That’s more like it, Mia.

  7. How is the prosecution allowed to talk about the massive media coverage of this case? Isn’t that a form of intimidating the jury?

    Kevin Jackson’s musings about Texas’ new abortion law….


    Isn’t money the root of all evil ?

    I am so glad we are not getting saturation coverage of GZ/TM over here. That hasn’t stopped the emails from my “you’re the only lawyer I know” friends, though. Even though I know fuck-all about criminal law.

    Uh, at what point do the terrible twos technically terminate? Because my newly 3-year-old has not gotten the memo that her grace period has expired, and my 20-month-old is becoming increasingly obstreperous. Also, I might be losing my mind. Because SOMEBODY is always yowling around here. Morning to night.

    Well, this IS an open thread. : )
