Obviously we weren't there to hear & see her testify. The descriptions about her demeanor are less than favorable. But does that make her incapable of telling the truth? They raised some serious issues in this article. Do you agree with them? Some of them? Your thoughts please

I think she was an ill prepared unreliable witness. I don't know what she heard on the phone, I don't know why she didn't call the police or if she didn't think the altercation would result in her friend's death. The jury has very specific rules they must abide by and their personal feelings of her are not something they can factor in. Although, I am sure some of that makes a person a little biased of the information she gave on the stand. Same rule applies to all of the testimony they hear.

"although, I am sure some of that makes a person a little biased of the information she gave on the stand.
True, but now another piece of info was made public, and it turns out she can't read very well.. And according to MSN...."she was forced to admit that not only did she not write a letter that she supposedly sent to Trayvon Martin's parents, but she couldn't read it, either. "Are you able to read that at all?" defense attorney Don West asked. "Some," Jeantel said. "I don't read cursive." After several painfully awkward moments, Jeantel only managed to read her own name. The letter — reportedly written by Jeantel's friend — described what she heard while on the phone with Martin just before his death.
