Zimmerman Trial Day 3 – End-of-Day Analysis & Video of State’s Witnesses (Heeeeeeeere's "DeeDee"!)
legalinsurrection.com ^ | Wednesday, June 26, 2013 | Andrew Branca

Posted on 06/26/2013 7:09:26 PM PDT by jiggyboy

The morning saw two of the State’s witnesses testify, Jane Sudyka and Jeanee Manaloo, both of whom were residents of Twin Lakes at the time of the incident and who appeared to testify as to their observations that night.

- snip -

Although direct was straightforward with most of the witnesses, Sudyka’s credibility was effectively destroyed by West on cross, and Manaloo suffered a similar fate in cross at the hands of O’Mara.

- snip -

Anyone familiar with the backstory of Dee-Dee knows there is more than adequate fuel for real fireworks on cross-examination, but West handled her more or less with kid gloves. It is my sense, however, that he is preparing to bore in more aggressively tomorrow when he continues her cross. This seems particularly likely because at the point the Court recessed for the day Jeantel had begun to resist acknowledging prior sworn statements and West was preparing to spool up the audio recordings of those interviews to use in cross.

Despite the frequent difficulties in understand Jeantel’s responses, however, on one point she was abundantly clear–she was NOT happy to be in court. When she learned just before the Court recessed for the day that West anticipated cross-examining her for another two hours tomorrow, she burst out with an incredulous “WHAT!?!?!?” I’m pretty sure even people standing outside the courtroom heard that exclamation.

In addition to minimizing the effects of today's Prosecution witnesses, it looks to me like the Defense is starting to lay some foundation for both the inevitable disbarment of Crump and some soiled pants at ABC.

Let’s hope this is a decent jury with an IQ higher than DeeDee’s.

I caught a bit of the testimony while eating a little chicken snack at Church’s. I couldn’t make heads nor tails of what she was saying. Glad I’m not a juror.

She didn't want to have anything to do with this case - she thought the cops would call her, like they do on 48 hours. The cops didn't call her.

I think she was forced into becoming a player by Sybrina Fulton and Benjamin Crump. I have my strong doubts that the narrative she is giving is her own memory. Now she has the state willing to bring perjury charges if she deviates from the narrative, and Sybrina/Crump as well. Tough spot. I would not want to be in her shoes.

Jeantel had a good grasp of dates and days. She could tell the jury exactly when some things occurred but what occurred had nothing to do with anything of value.

She is going to get demolished tomorrow.

She is one mean little bitch. Totally engrossed with herself. Why? I have not idea.

I was surprised the Judge didn’t admonish her for that outburst. The Judge seems to be favoring the prosecution so far.

This was in fact exactly the term used in an objection: that BDLR was engaging in “narrative”, i.e. leading the witness more or less continuously, not Q&A. Motion denied of course.

Later that day [Friday] she [tweeted], "CNN and HLN is killing me bro.” Both cable networks have been offering extensive coverage of the Zimmerman case, which concluded jury selection last week.

I thought DeeDee didn't never watch nothin' but the weather?

I wrote this on another thread:

Just the weather, and The First 48, that’s all. Oh and per her scrubbed twitter feed, also “MTV Jams” and “Fix My Life” and a show about a pair of songwriters, and a Gospel show. That’s all. Probably.

She also made a sarcastic comment and facial gesture to the defense attorney. I’m just surprised that the judge didn’t warn or admonish the witness about her conduct.

Beyond her changing stories and her disrespectful attitude, the one thing that struck me the hardest was her overall demeanor. Whether from alcohol, legal or illegal drugs, or perhaps some medical condition, she definitely appeared to be impaired. As a juror, that would definitely give me pause.

I watched about 30-45 minutes of the Questioning of “the girlfriend”.

I have serious doubts that she was even talking to him that night. She sounds like a person “designated” to be the “witness” by Team Trayvon. She was given a narrative to testify to, but she acts like she doesn’t even like him.

She is there to stick it to “whitey” if she can.

If her IQ breaks 90 would consider that a miracle.

"Subornation of perjury". I'll post a few excerpts from this March 2013 post at CTH: "The practice of ″horse shedding the witness″ (rehearsing testimony) is an example of such perjurious criminal conduct by an attorney." "Not only did Ben Crump misrepresent his action (ie. lied) in his affidavit, he also painstakingly prepped the witness, rehearsed the parts he wanted to record, gave her instructions on what to say (like when to start in 3…2…1), and intentionally cut out his instructions and interjections." "...what’s factually evident is the ABC recording shows Ben Crump’s affidavit to be false in its content and presentation. Benjamin Crump through his attorney Bruce Blackwell is lying and misrepresenting to the court." http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/06/26/benjamin-crump-and-subornation-of-perjury-the-horse-shedding-of-witness-8/

Oh yeah me too. After the first fifteen minutes of testimony, I sincerely felt she should have been disqualified as a witness because of her obvious mental impairment, inability to understand simple questions, and inability to communicate basic words. Shame on the judge for allowing this mockery of the justice system.

I cannot believe how many people are openly lying in court.

No matter what, perjury and suborning charges need to brought on these A-holes.

Just so convenient Ms. Manaloo suddenly has revealed new information that she “Wasn’t asked about before”.

Ms. Jenteel wasn’t Tray’s girlfriend? LOL Right.

Guess she was coached least the charges of sex with a minor interfere with the trial.

I don’t believe for a minute she wasn’t getting it on with Tray.

All in all, the credibility of the State’s witnesses are rather poor.

Jeantel owned West. He was meek as all get out. Maybe he didn’t want to push in fear of making the jury even more sympathetic to her. Or anger the judge, who has already shown she doesn’t like West. But you could tell by Jeantel’s body language and her arrogant attitude toward West that she knew she owned him. West is going to have a very tough time with her tomorrow.
