ZIMMERMAN PROSECUTORS: TRAYVON MARTIN'S GIRLFRIEND LIED UNDER OATH

Trayvon Martin's girlfriend, the lead witness against George Zimmerman in his second-degree murder trial, lied under oath, according to lawyers on both sides of the case. 

State prosecutors admitted Tuesday that Martin's girlfriend falsely claimed she was in the hospital on the day of Martin's funeral, committing perjury. 

This admission greatly damages the credibility of Martin's girlfriend, whom Martin called on the night Zimmerman shot and killed him, for this is not the first time she has been caught lying.

Identified as "witness 8" in records, Martin's girlfriend told Trayon Martin's family attorney Benjamin Crump in a recorded interview that she was 16 years of age right after Martin's passing. She was in fact 18 years of age at the time Martin was shot. 

Crump told reporters Martin's girlfriend was 16 and has since "said he did not knowingly misrepresent her age."

On Feb. 26, 2012, Zimmerman shot and killed Martin and claimed self-defense. Photos revealed Zimmerman had gashes on the back of his head and a battered face. Zimmerman said Martin pounded his head into the concrete pavement and he had to shoot him to preserve his life. 

Martin's girlfriend had told prosecutors that Martin said a man was following him on the night he was shot.

Bernie de la Rionda, the prosecutor, was ambiguous when asked if the prosecution would prosecute Martin's girlfriend for perjury, just as they are trying with Zimmerman's wife for allegedly misstating some information during the bond hearing about the couple's finances. 

Defense attorney Don West simply said, "In fact, she lied."

Zimmerman's defense team also announced on Tuesday that they will not will not hold a "stand your ground" hearing in April, which could have cleared Zimmerman of all charges if it was determined he killed Martin in self-defense, to better spend their time preparing for the jury trial in June of this year.

Good news - so a man falsely accused by the media can get this self-defense action behind him, and get his life back.

He may have to change his name because of the wanton and false personal destruction of the media.

What does that have to do with Zimmerman stalking, escalating, confronting and killing a teenager on his way home from the 7-11?

Well, it chips away at that allegation - don't you think, if the prosecution's key witness has lied twice under oath? Her reliability is now seriously in doubt, and the prosecution will probably choose not to put her on the stand.

Other evidence:

Such as Zimmerman's injuries after the shooting: two black eyes, a broken nose, deep gashes in the back of his head, various contusions and abrasions. And, other than the GSW, Martin had abrasions on his hands and fingers and nowhere else, backing up Zimmerman's account.

Such as the fact that George did not even originally retain legal counsel, because he thought it was such an obvious open and shut case.

Such as the fact that media referred to him as white, when he is actually Latino-African.

Such as the media's selective editing of his 911 call to make it appear that he made a racist comment, when he was actually answering the question of the 911 operator.

Such as the fact that the photo shown of Trayvon Martin was when he was 12 YEARS OLD, and not his football player size, with only a 10 pound differential in weight between the two men. Did you know that?? I didn't until recently.

Such as the fact that the media and even the president and even you a citizen was blindsided by their unfair and racist coverage of the incident.

Sounds like you may be interested in convicting a not guilty individual. Because you believe the media's narrative, without even questioning it. As I did too, until I learned the facts the media has been suppressing, all in the name of a compelling story.

Have you ever used critical thinking in questioning something you believe is correct? It would be really helpful, it is essential here. Or would you like others to convict YOU on the basis of  hearsay? I'm guessing not.

Otherwise it's similar to the Democrats during Reconstruction who falsely proclaimed that black and white Republicans were guilty of heinous crimes, on the basis of rumors, and lynched them without a trial. Same principle.

Try reading some information from the defense, and if you look at it with a non-jaundiced eye, you will see the MSM has been conducting a travesty.

Do you think if both men had been black, or both white, or both Latino, this incident would have even seen the light of day? No, no, and hell no.

Given the fair person you claim to be, it shocks the conscience that you seem to be interested in convicting a man who is not guilty. Because you believe the media's narrative, without even questioning it. As I did too, until I learned the facts the media has been suppressing, all in the name of a compelling story. How can you live with yourself?

Have you ever used critical thinking in questioning something you believe is correct? It would be really helpful, it is essential here. Or would you like others to convict YOU on the basis of  hearsay? I'm guessing not.

It is very similar to the Democrats during Reconstruction who falsely proclaimed that black and white Republicans were guilty of heinous crimes, on the basis of rumors, and lynched them without a trial. Same principle.

 Seriously...do you read? Because it's common knowledge that Zimmerman had multiple contusions, scrapes and cuts. In addition to 2 black eyes and a broken nose, Zimmerman had a concussion.

Zimmerman admitted to killing the boy- the GF has nothing to do with the crime that was committed. If you want to try her for perjury, have at it.

If GZ was injured to within a breath of his life, why did he refuse medical attention at the scene?
Common sense and logic go a long, long way.

From George's injuries, it absolutely looked as if he were in a fight for his life. As he clearly was.

I think it is so interesting that Martin had abrasions only on his hands and fingers - from hitting someone. No other injuries before his GSW.

And I found it FASCINATING that the media tried to hoodwink the public into believing that Martin was this small, scrawny thing - by using his photo when he was 12 YEARS OLD. They never used his current photo at 17 years old, when he was 6'1" and 160 pounds or so - a grown man, quite obviously able to give George the beating of his life. I didn't learn that until a couple months ago! Compared to George Z, at 5'9", 170. That is virtually the same weight, with 4 inches to Martin's advantage.

And the witnesses said Martin was on top beating George, who was on the bottom, lying in the street, calling for help.

Talk about something completely different from what we heard about from the media.

I wonder what she thought about the OJ trial - and his guilt or innocence.

Again, why did this man who was beaten within an inch of his life, refuse all medical treatment at the scene, within MINUTES of having fought for his LIFE? Clearly, he had no urgent medical needs-

Seriously, your lack of common sense and logic are astounding-

Again, Einsteins, why did the poor victim, George, refuse all medical treatment on the night of the murder? How come the medical professionals and PO's didn't override George, if he was near death? What a liability that would have been-

Is he low IQ'd?

Does he not feel pain?

Hey Genius, when someone is in shock, they can actually NOT feel pain. And can make decisions that don't make sense.  I cannot tell you how many people have said "I didn't think it was that bad..." when they seek medical attention days later.

Without actually being there, I can only surmise why the EMT'S and cops didn't override Zimmerman's refusal of medical treatment..would be that Zimmerman was alert and oriented and that quite possibly the EMT's and cops didn't realize he was in shock until later.
