I write today about the defendant’s petition for a writ of certiorari.
I believe it is ridiculous and I predict that the Court of Appeals will deny it summarily. At least, I would, if I were a judge on the Court of Appeals.
The first thing that struck me when I read the petition was the flagrant false statement that a witness saw Trayvon straddling the defendant and hitting him repeatedly. W6 (John) retracted that statement while under oath. Therefore, it was a lie. Nevertheless, the defense continues to rely on it and I am sick and tired of it.
I would sanction the defense counsel for misrepresenting the facts to the court.
Second, Benjamin Crump recorded the Dee Dee interview in front of witnesses whom defense counsel can interview and should interview before the subject of interviewing him even comes up.
Finally, I am not impressed with any of the defense team’s arguments.
Benjamin Crump did not kill Trayvon Martin.
He did not invent Dee Dee.
The phone records establish that someone was talking to Trayvon when he was attacked and the connection was broken. We now know that someone was Dee Dee.
Attempting to depict him as a malicious wrongdoer encouraging Dee Dee to lie is not supported by any evidence. It is wild speculation from defense counsel’s support group of delusional racist internet trolls. More smoke and mirrors from a defendant who has no defense.
Trial starts June 10th.
Time to get it on and stop with the diversions.
