Posted on 04/20/2012 9:11:39 AM PDT by kristinn
Following George Zimmerman's successful bail hearing in Sanford, Fl., today, Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump made statements at a courthouse press conference that sounded to me like veiled calls for violence against Zimmerman.
Crump repeatedly spoke about how the Martin family 'could not understand why the state was protecting' Zimmerman and used inflammatory language to describe Zimmerman getting bail. He also compared Zimmerman in a suit at the hearing to Trayvon wearing a suit in his coffin.
Crump is an officer of the court. He knows that defendants are presumed innocent and are afforded every measure to protect them during prosecution.
If I were involved in the case, I'd be moving to sanction Crump.
I thought the same thing when he advised against the bond as a way to protect Zimmerman. Also when he was pressing Mrs Zimmerman if there were threats against her.
His concern was touching....not
I’m not talking about the state prosecutor, but the private attorney for the Martin family. He only spoke outside the courtroom.
Do you have the address to file the complaint with state AG for Florida residense?
Also heard that ABC just released a photo of Zimmerman’s bloody head, taken minutes after the police arrived. Any one see it or have a link to it?
If you took Zimmerman out by hanging him from the nearest light post, these people would still not be satisfied. They also called his apology “self-serving.”
What took them so long? Did this photo just recently come into their possession?
No I didn’t see him. I was talking about the state’s attorney.
I followed this thread during the hearing.
> why the state was protecting’ Zimmerman
Because this isn’t Zimbabwe (yet), and Zimmerman is innocent until PROVEN guilty.
The Martin lawyer’s tiny little mind with its turd world perspective can’t grok that.
I didn’t hear Crump’s comments. I’ve been looking for video.
Also waiting for comments from Obama’s “partner,” Sharpton.
Looks like George’s head was about to split across the middle. What took these photos so long to get out? How convenient they were hidden until after the arrest.
Obama looks up from his snooze...”Dog, did someone say Dog?”
Crump is an
officer of the court official RACIST FROM HELL.
There; fixed it.
RULE 4-3.6 TRIAL PUBLICITY
(a) Prejudicial Extrajudicial Statements Prohibited. A lawyer shall not make an extrajudicial statement that a reasonable person would expect to be disseminated by means of public communication if the lawyer knows or reasonably should know that it will have a substantial likelihood of materially prejudicing an adjudicative proceeding due to its creation of an imminent and substantial detrimental effect on that proceeding.
(b) Statements of Third Parties. A lawyer shall not counsel or assist another person to make such a statement. Counsel shall exercise reasonable care to prevent investigators, employees, or other persons assisting in or associated with a case from making extrajudicial statements that are prohibited under this rule.

(b) not seek to obtain from an unrepresented accused a waiver of important pre-trial rights such as a right to a preliminary hearing;
(c) make timely disclosure to the defense of all evidence or information known to the prosecutor that tends to negate the guilt of the accused or mitigates the offense, and, in connection with sentencing, disclose to the defense and to the tribunal all unprivileged mitigating information known to the prosecutor, except when the prosecutor is relieved of this responsibility by a protective order of the tribunal.
