I cannot for the life of me get this video to embed. Its almost 5 am and I need to sleep. Will try againg tomorrow. Update: Still won’t embed in post but is now the first comment. Sorry that comments were accidently off until now.
I have not been home long and probably should have waited until tomorrow but I was dying to hear some more of Rachel Jeantel’s testimony. I feel sorry for this girl. She clearly did not want to testify, it must be humiliating for her to be asked to read on national television (even silently). I think she has a very low IQ but not low enough where she doesn’t know her own intellectual limitations. She clearly has a very difficult time attempting to read, as noted by her subvocalizing and the amount of time it takes her to “read” five lines of notes.
The prosecution seems to think she is their strongest witness, yet she was impeached multiple times, admitted to lying under oath previously and is combative and incoherent. The Smoking Gun has some deleted tweets where she discussing drinking and smoking pot and she can’t spell ‘asshole.’ She is a 19 year old High School Senior with a minimal grasp of the English language who has been tweeting about wanting to be a “homicide detective” while admittedly drunk and stoned. If this is the best the prosecution has, Zimmerman walks. So barring a vast improvement in the prosecutions evidence to show that Zimmerman was NOT acting in self-defense, y’all might as well get a headstart on blaming the jury now.
