Watch and Comment: Zimmerman Frye Hearing Livestream

Thursday, June 6, 2013

Good morning:

Judge Nelson set aside today and tomorrow for a Frye hearing regarding the admissibility of expert testimony about the death shriek and a hearing on the defense motion for sanctions and a judicial inquiry into alleged discovery violations by the State.

Not sure which order she plans to hear these motions, but I am sure we will find that out when the hearing starts in about 25 minutes @ 9 am EDT.

Here is a link to the livestream:

Comment below.

Due to inclement weather, Crane and I have decided not to take our computers with us on our trip to TN for a doctor’s appointment. We will be with you for the first 1.5 hours and catch up with you later after we return.

    Well ya’ll after midnight here, time for me to wrap it up. Need extra shut eye and in morning eat a lighter breakfast.

    So at Skeletor Time I won’t doze off waking up looking stoopid wiping drool off my arm! :p

    Good night everybody, rest well see you guys in the morning


    • fauxmccoy says:


      ic u tomorrow — same skeletor time, same skeletor channel 🙂

      i’ll get that caffeine drip started early and we’ll get you a bib … mmmmk?

      night night sweetpea

      • ic2fools says:

        big azz grinn gotcha too same skeletor time, same skeletor channel

        me screaming in laughter caffeine drip you ain’t wrong ahahahahahahaa.

        thanks for reminding to get a bib!

        b4 i get to bed i’m changing my gravatar to no more skeletor:

        his long azz breaths between words sure as hell blew out my gravatar candle, lol lol lol

    Skeletor I thought only dogs were sensitive to high pitched sound.

    JN just checked him again, he is so disrespectful of her. Determined to do what he wants to do, it ain’t happen today Sparky.

    I will using Sparky to refer to West slow azz…

  3. aussie says:

    Actually, the screaming stops with the shot… then there is a tiny little YOWWW kind of sound. I think THAT was GZ, when the hot casing hit his nose (the spot on the right the butterfly bandage didn’t over).

  4. Malisha says:

    They still obviously have no expert who’s willing to get on that stand, be qualified, undergo the voir dire, and then testify that:
    (a) the terrorized scream was Fogen; or that (b) Fogen was screaming “Help me Help me” while Trayvon Martin said words to the effect of, “you’re gonna die tonight mo****f**ker.”

    So they got someone who would say that the amount of scream that could be isolated was too small to form any valid opinion about. He did, however, validate the METHODOLOGIES. HAHAHA!!

    That’s like getting someone who would not say that the DNA test itself is not valid for court, or that a drop of blood contained DNA belonging to a person other than the killer or victim, but who said that “this drop of blood was too small to be really sure about anything” Does not invalidate anything.

    Reich can say that he got enough of a sample to come to the conclusions to which he came. Certainly there’s no argument that he can use the techniques that he did use. Also, there is no magic number such as “less than five seconds’ isolated screaming cannot be analyzed.” Would it have been better if he had a full eight seconds of Trayvon’s terrified scream? Perhaps, but after all Fogen shot him before he could get out that last five seconds of screaming, didn’t he?

    It can be logically proven that the scream was not Fogen because Fogen testified that he did not know that he had actually HIT Trayvon Martin with that bullet he fired. Therefore, he would not have had any reason to stop screaming after firing — since he told the police that he continued to be afraid of Trayvon Martin even after he had fired the shot.

  5. Two sides to a story says:

    As I listen along to the phone part of the hearing I missed this morning, it truly annoys me.

    The time taken for the Frye hearing is necessary to sort out the expert stuff seems unavoidable.

    All the phone stuff – pffft. What a crappy waste of time for inadmissable information. I’m sure another outpouring of $ for Fogen will result from his galvanized supporters who probably think they won.

    And all the extra money and tea in China still won’t do Fogen a dang bit of good.

  6. kllypyn says:

    (repost to correct spelling.)The only reason they are trying to keep the experts from testifying is because they know damned well that was not zimmerman screaming.The jurors will know instantly who is screaming.Even his supporters know who was screaming.They just don’t care anything about the truth even when it’s staring them in the face in black and white.

    He watched,followed and then pursued Trayvon those are aggressive and creepy acts. He then illegally tried to detain trayvon who resisted. While holding him at gun point He interrogated Trayvon.He then while holding onto the front of trayvon’s shirts preventing his escape,he killed him while being careful not to shoot his own hand. That is what the evidence shows.

    I can tell by the arrogant look on his face,he still thinks he will get away with it.The only way he gets off is if they get a bunch bigoted Zimmerpukes,who will ignore the evidence and set him free.If that happens at sometime down the road he will go after someone else.

    • Malisha says:

      If all that unlikely stuff happens (he gets acquitted etc.) it is still likely that when he goes after someone else, that someone else will be armed and will stand his ground in a way that Fogen really won’t like.

      • Lonnie Starr says:

        Sorry Malisha, but I can’t go with you on that speculation because gz only goes after helpless children. It’s more likely his next victim will be another helpless child, tall enough to appear an adversary, but young and timid enough to give gz the courage he needs.

    • racerrodig says:

      Exactly right….and how many days now…….less than 4 days !!

  9. Judy75201 says:

    I need clarification on something I have seen referenced several times over the last couple of weeks. I thought that the fogen “help me” cries only existed at the police station for comparison to the shrieks on the NEN call. Yet I see people reference those utterances as if they happened when Trayvon was murdered.


    • elcymoo says:

      I may be wrong, but I’ve heard some people – who could distinguish more from the enhanced tape than I was ever able to – say that GZ was mocking Trayvon’s pleas for help.

      • I’m with you. It’s exactly what I got. Zimmerman mocking the pleas for help.

      • Rachael says:

        I say that the importan aspect about the screams is that they stop as soon as we hear the gunshot.

        A little common sense is all it takes to explain that one.

      • aussie says:

        There was a tape3 with GZ’s whimpy little “helps” transposed onto the original 911 tape.

      • ladystclaire says:

        I am one who can hear him mocking Trayvon as he screamed and cried for someone to help him. he has got to be the most heartless SOB on GOD’S green earth. it’s not hard to pick up that second voice screaming for help, right behind Trayvon’s screams.

        It’s there plain as day and, for those who saw and heard this child’s cries for help, well they should feel pretty damn low because, they could have stopped this idiot from killing this kid. instead of them helping this child when he more than likely looked them in the face and, they turned their backs on him.

    • gbrbsb says:

      This is only my opinion of what I sincerely believe I hear and have heard for over 6 months, i.e. well before Reich’s report.

      I hear “I’m begging you” at the very beginning which in part corresponds with the OP saying “police, fire or medical” and which I attribute to Trayvon as it does not sound like GZ’s voice. I hear a single long “Help” midway, and a longish “stop” at the end just with the shot, both of which, along with “I’m begging you” I attribute to Trayvon as they are a distinct voice, IMO, from that of GZ’s whether talking or in his exemplar.

      Underneath the 3 utterances I attribute to Trayvon, and many months before Reich came out with them, at intervals I hear a softer “Help” and/or “help me” which I attribute to GZ because, a) they are softer, b) they are very similar to GZ’s voice exemplars, c) GZ claims he called out, yelled, shouted, “help me” (interesting that he rarely uses “scream” to describe what he claims he did), and d) he says he called out for someone to “help restrain this guy”, and iirc some witnesses claim to have heard him doing so albeit retracted.

    • KittySP says:

      Judy – He did for the purpose of the voice stress test yell “help, help, help me”. He also made statements to detectives, during the re-enactment, and on Hannity that he was calling for help. His attorney’s and father are claiming that cries for help on 911 tape are him. He didn’t know the cries had been recorded and when the call is played for him, he responds that it doesn’t even sound like him.

      I think Serino expected that the moment he heard that call being played, that he would have shown some sign of emotion and said something along the lines, “OMG, that’s me screaming for help trying to keep him from viciously banging my head on the concrete, he was trying to smother me, but I kept trying get myself from under him”.

      No one on this forum believes those cries of fear are coming from GZ. Certainly, not EVEN GZ.

    • Judy75201 says:

      My biggest concern with this is that some may think one of the vids put together with the shrieks and with fogen’s police station “help me help me” cries interspersed for comparison may think they actually happened at the same time.

  10. 10 minutes to the new post!

  11. willisnewton says:

    That this hearing happened on the anniversary of D-Day makes me sad. So many people died fighting against fascism and this jerk sits there enjoying the freedom all the blood was spilled for while his lawyer wastes everyone’s time… I’m glad the Allies won and justice is coming.

  12. Two sides to a story says:

    Geez, if I ever get caught up in legal land, I’m going to remember the “I don’t recall” line! : /

    I’m listening to the hearing videos, catching up – how many dozens of times was that said today?!

  14. You all have thoughtful comments says:

    Do you think gz has any feeling of helplessness?

    • You all have thoughtful comments says:

      Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
      Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
      Oh, I believe in yesterday

      Suddenly I’m not half the man I used to be
      There’s a shadow hanging over me
      Oh, yesterday came suddenly

      • Lonnie Starr says:

        I haven’t yet looked for the hearing videos, I’m sure they’ve been posted so I’ll get another look soon. But, in the meantime, I paid particular attention to gz, who they were nice enough to show while the 911 call was being played. At the first scream he dropped his eyes and looked down… When the second scream came his eyes popped open and he looked up. You could seen he was deep in memory lane. After the second scream finished he managed to hold steady for a couple of seconds, then he seemed to realize the significance of what he’d heard and was thinking and he swallowed hard. The kind of fear filled gulp one takes when they realize their goose is cooked. Needless to say, for a fraction of a second, it was in his eyes as well.

  15. Dylan123

    4:47 p.m. ET: Mantei said someone may have a different opinion about the capabilities of the voice identification technology. Nakasone agreed with Mantei saying he had a problem with the opinion, but not the technology.

    From HLN’s live blog. Nice quick summary of Nakasone’s long-winded time on the stand. What it comes down to is that he personally does not agree with the opinion of the other experts, but accepts their methods (Primeau’s aural, Owen/Reich’s spectrograph) as scientifically viable and universally accepted within the audio forensics community.

    And the whole point of Frye hearing is to find that out-whether or not the methods used by potential expert witnesses are scientifically viable/accepted by their field. The opinion of whether or not they are to be believed is left up to the jury if/when they pass the frye/daubert standard.

    Nakasone just gave his thumbs up for Reich/Primeau/Owen, etc

    • Two sides to a story says:

      Thanks, SG2. That’s really helpful to know. I missed a lot of the action today and having troubling focusing on the long testimony in the videos.

    • boyd says:

      I expected a PH’d to dump a shit on another opinions.

      I used to call them PH’d wars. I’d sit in meetings and listen to them argue all the time about who is right.

      And if they’re wrong , hari-kari time. They go to their office and hide for 2 months.

    • Girlp says:

      I figured that, if O’Mara/West use Nakasone at trial won’t they have issue’s with GZ statements that Trayvon supposedly covered GZ’s mouth and nose with his hands and if I’m correct when he moved his hand it was from GZ nose? How can anyone scream with their mouth covered you have to be able to move air from your lungs out, the scream would be muffled to the point no ones phone would pick it up.

      • racerrodig says:

        BDLR “…Okay Mr. Fogen….you’ve stated that is you screaming for help…I’m going to play this 911 call from the beginning and when we get to the part where your nose and mouth were covered, you just let me know…..ready ??…”

      • aussie says:

        Racer, Serino and Singleton already tried that and he kept not remembering.

        • racerrodig says:

          I remember……and despite the severity of the issue, one would expect him to. I don’t think the jury will let I’ don’t knows slide.

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          2 days 13 hours to go.

          He’d better start remembering something because, in front of a jury you only need one big fishy thing to start down the wrong road with them. Or 2 small fishy things, or 4 little fishy things, or 8 tiny fishy things. Trouble is foggen’s gonna bring in a WHALE!

  16. Lynn says:

    While waiting for next blog can someone answer me something?

    Some of these clothes photos last week were new to me. What I’m curious about is Trayvon’s hoodie. All the stains on both his and Fogen’s clothes have had little snippets taken out to run tests. Okay. Then there is half the back and waistband taken off of Trayvon’s hoodie. What would have that been???

    • ic2fools says:

    • amsterdam1234 says:

      I am pretty sure they cut off a piece for testing purposes.

      • gbrbsb says:

        Yeah, of course, but why the back? And why so big? Don’t you think there may have been something other than “just testing” that caught their attention?

      • amsterdam1234 says:

        It is in the FDLE laboratory report pg 123 of the first discovery.

        Distance tests were conducted using fabric cut from the back of each of the sweatshirts

        They needed enough fabric to test at what distance the shot was fired.

    • oh god right! that’s where they found nasty gz’s dna mixed w/Trayvon’s on the bottom of his sweatshirt right?? and it had to happen post shoot because Trayvon wasn’t bleeding until then! so there can’t be a mixed spot of Dna until after Trayvon was shot.. that further proves gz killed him in cold blood because the only spots of Tray’s were mixed with gz’s, I think only two. or 3 with one that wasn’t totally confirmed..

      • elcymoo says:

        Shannon, I think that GZ’s blood was found at the bottom right edge of Trayvon’s T-shirt, inside his hoodie. That would fit with the evidence of the shirts being grasped and pulled down to the right as GZ aimed and fired – being ever so careful not to hit his own left hand. The mix of blood elsewhere on T’s clothing probably happened when GZ patted him down, claiming he was looking for a weapon, but I’ll bet checking frantically for an exit wound. Remember, the EMT supposedly had to clean blood off GZ’s face AND hands. The police should have bagged his hands, IMO, and at the very least, taken photos to document his injuries.

    Do you think jN is willing to go late today to make a point? IF defense (especially West ) drags out testimony till smoss grows on faces, everyone can count on some loooong days ahead during jury selection and trial.

    • SoulSistaWoo says:

      I have come to the conclusion that one of West duties is to be as boring, long winded and drawn out as he possible can as he possible can. This strategy is used to put the jury into a mental coma… so they walk away not caring, knowing or remembering anything said by the “expert”… or anything occurring in the courtroom, when west is involved for that matter.

          Is it me? Or does anyone else notice that for a brother, appearing in court in support of his brother, he spends no time looking at gz nor gz at him? They seem repulsed by each other.

            He spent a good part of camera time mugging and smirking yesterday….what’s up with that ??

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            He only comes to court for the cameras, not for gz. When have we ever seen the family leave court with gz? When there’s a recess or after it’s over, when do we see RZ go over to gz for a chat? Never, no one goes near him, he’s always all alone, even during breaks his lawyers find things to do to stay away from him.

          • racerrodig says:

            True all of that, but why even try. I’d be too embarrassed to stick my nose out for the likes of him and what he represents.

  18. PYorck says:

    It is important to keep in mind that hardly a word was said about speech recognition, i.e. finding out what is said in the recording.

    • Rachael says:

      Speech recognition has a hard enough time under the best of circumstances. It sux. Speech wreck is a joke.

      • PYorck says:

        I was not talking about asking Siri to tell us what’s on the recording. I was talking about mostly manual analysis.

        I am absolutely not a speech recognition expert or even any kind of speech expert, but my exposure to things like that in university was still quite a bit above average. Sorry, but I will go with my professors and my friends, some of whom have even done forensic phonetics work. Yes, fully automatic systems have their limitations, but there are many very interesting things going on.

      • Rachael says:

        Yeah, real interesting – like putting medical transcriptionists out of work and spitting out useless medical records.

        It works well when it can be trained to a voice it knows, but it just does not have the capability to deal with it and as a MT, it was part of my job to “train” it.

      • PYorck says:

        Commercially available speech-to-text systems are just a fraction of what speech recognition is about and only very loosely related to anything that would be used here.

        I just took issue that you brushed my comment and Reich’s work aside with such a sweeping generalization.

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          I’d have a problem with speech recognition if it weren’t for the fact that there are only 4 voices on the tape. Two of those voices are clearly in the foreground, since it is the caller and the dispatcher. While the other two voices are one or another of two more distant people.

          These people are separated by age, weight and psychological space. One is bigger, stronger, combat trained, and has been employed in “enforcement” with physical contact duties he was assessed as being capable of performing, while the other was merely a hapless child with no criminal intentions or mission, and whom the evidence shows never engaged in physical offense, while his opponent had a firearm, on top of being more capable he was angry and on a mission he believed would keep the neighborhood safe.

          Thus the most likely candidate for being fearful is, obviously the child! So then, why would the more capable of the two be the one in fear? WORSE YET for any view of a fight having taken place, the child is clearly displaying fear and submission. You’d have to be insane to imagine that an untrained and combat incapable child in fear, would suddenly become anything near a match for the aggressor.

          Obviously the one who knew no holds, knew not how to apply any wrist locks or other defensive maneuvers, is not going to be the one to be screaming in pain! It is insane to think he’d be engaged in fear filled screaming, while beating a stronger more combat capable person either.

          Finally, why are we supposed to accept that a fear filled child, who was unarmed, would not respond appropriately to the threat of a firearm being trained on him? Even if he had grabbed the gun, there is little reason to believe he could wrestle it away. However, the evidence shows he never even tried that.

          Thus, if the child never saw the weapon then it is second degree murder! If the attacker shot with one hand free, it is second degree murder. You cannot be under lethal assault and still have one hand free to draw a weapon! Thus, if you manage to draw a firearm at all, you have a duty to display it and issue a warning, if you are not under threat of a continuous deadly assault.

      • Rachael says:

        It is my work too and I don’t believe I brushed it aside. In fact, isn’t Reich the one who bases it also on his experienced ear? So we are saying the exact same thing – unless that was the other gentleman. Sometimes a human ear is necessary to put not just the sounds but the context together because a machine cannot do that yet. They may be great for analyzing things but sometimes oh, never mind – speaking of ears, I have work to do LOL – but I brushed nothing aside. I’m just saying context is important and that requires a human ear and experience. At least at this time.

        • cielo62 says:

          Rachael~ I agree with you 100%. Sometimes when I’m bored and at some restaurant where they have the TV on with closed captioning, I SEE that the machine does the weirdest things; “hears” totally the wrong word for the context. There is no substitute for human intelligence.


          • dianetrotter says:

            I teach kids to do the same thing when learning a song. Listening to the harmony and pick out all voice parts. Listening to the music to identify all instruments and the patterns they play. We use Audacity to remove the vocal track from songs.

      • gbrbsb says:

        Agree Racheal, and, IMO, God forbid the days he seemed to predict when for this kind of analysis the human ear would be superfluous, albeit he did clarify that “listeners” would in his opinion always be necessary for court proceedings.

      • PYorck says:

        Your original remark…

        Speech recognition has a hard enough time under the best of circumstances. It sux. Speech wreck is a joke.

        … seemed to indicate that you made a leap from ‘speech recognition’ to ‘automatic speech recognition’. How is that supposed to make sense if you were including listening or other methods based primarily on human judgment? And your follow-up about automatic speech-to-text in particular only seemed to confirm that.

        In his letter Reich spends much time talking about what was said on the recording as opposed to who said it. That’s speech recognition no matter how he did it. From the little glimpses that we have seen of his method it does not seem to be automated.

        Nakasone mentioned speech recognition in passing today but did not address it in any detail. That means that all his concerns about recording length, emotional state, voice variability, range of sounds found in the recording etc. are not directly applicable to that.

        I am not surprised that speech-to-text for medical transcription doesn’t work well. Speech-to-text is a notoriously difficult task because it is a very open-ended problem and involves “two sides” of the problem where things can go wrong. First there is the recognition side where it is all about which sounds were spoken, but that is not enough. Then that has to be converted into the right written words without any real knowledge of the content. There are simply many steps in that chain and an error in one most likely ruins the whole result. It is only made worse because for transcription you have to get it all correct. Other applications of speech recognition like those phone dialog systems that everyone hates can get away with a lot of cheating. Usually they discard most of what you say and only pay attention to a few keywords. Systems like that are much less ambitious in many ways, but they are also mature enough that people trust them enough to use them in fighter jet controls.

        In a case like the 911 recording you could approach things a little differently because it is not necessary to leave the final decision to a computer. Just detecting likely spoken sounds at specific times and letting a human operator puzzle out the meaning is an acceptable answer. And of course you can also simply use a computer as a fancy recorder and visualization tool and leave all decisions to a human from start to finish.

      • PYorck says:

        I want to apologize. I went a little overboard yesterday.

  19. whonoze says:

    When all is said and done, it seems to me that Dr. Nakasone’s opinion is rather generic, and based on his very stringent standards. His opinion of the 911 recording comes down to, “We have to throw out everything but 3 seconds of screaming, and no-one can tell anything from 3 seconds of screaming.” His opinion of competing experts comes down to, “Anyone who would claim they can make a positive ID from 3 seconds of screaming is a quack.”

    First of all, this doesn’t address the bulk of Reich’s testimony, which is about what words can be recognized by scrutinizing the recording, not who said them.

    Second, it sets a clear standard for the State’s voice ID witnesses. I would assume they found more than 3 seconds of the recording usable for their purposes. They will now clearly need to explain their rationale for including the additional material in their analyses. If they can’t do that well, then they SHOULD be disregarded. But I would guess they are armed with arguments as to why their method is valid, and that those arguments will be less generic than Dr. Nakasone’s, but rather refer to the specifics of the recording(s) in question. Something along the lines of, “well, yes, there is a lot of cross-talk, but that doesn’t totally rule out identification IN THIS CASE because of (tech factor x, y, z…)”

    • boyd says:

      I have to re-listen to Nakasone’s testimony , I had other pressing issues. But I did catch enough to know where he was heading.

      I don’t have my glasses.

      I spent a few years developing sensing recognition equipment.
      so I began to understand some of what he was saying before interruption.

      #1 Does he know how the hardware works, section by section? , Hardware has advantages and disadvantages.
      You should know that to understand any weaknesses. Where I used to work we always evaluated the competition

      #2 If one is using a logarithmic amplifier or some software log algorithm , it usually means the resolution needs to be better, Logs kinda give the impression you have more range.

      #3 if you had the manufacturer testifying ,he would likely tell you how great it works, no? I’ve learned over time especially with PH’d. They are very critical of anyone else’s work. so I kinda guessed he was going to dump a big shit on it pretty quick.

      as with all machinery, nothing is perfect but it’s the best we got.

    O’Mara justice

    voices overheard with full context available = needs 100% scientific certainty before it can come in

    some random hand on a phone with no context = pretty sure that’s means he tried to kill George, the jury should hear about this

    I just got back, is the day done or are they just in recess?

  22. Dr. Nakasone is conservative by nature. He prefers not to speculate about anything or go out on any limbs.

    He is suspicious of new methodologies and wants to see the data they produce before forming a conclusion about the use of the methodology.

    Most scientists are like this and I have to confess that I agree with his approach.

    This stresses the importance of professional journals in science and the role of peer review in evaluating new theories and methodologies.

    Reliability = reproducibility.

    KEY PRINCIPLE: A novel theory or new methodology in science must be tested by someone. The results must be published in a professional journal describing the experiment that was used.

    Until other scientists have reviewed the published paper, commented on the experiment and the results, and run the same experiment in their labs to see if they get the same result, the novel theory or new methodology remains nothing more than an unconfirmed possibility.

    When other scientists get the same or reproducible results, the theory or methodology is recognized as reliable and becomes a part of accepted or established science.

    This is the scientific tradition by which novel theories and new methodologies become accepted science.

    It is evidence driven.

    • EdgySF says:

      Professor, how about a stress analysis of the scream? Can the experts prove that one must have been under serious and intense duress during that scream?

      The first witness on the scene said that the killer was notably calm. He was by no means crying.

      And was it the ME or the funeral director who said Trayvon had a dried tear on his cheek?

      • Jun says:

        It’s very simple

        Listen to it

      • KittySP says:

        ESF – the expert witness stated that the person producing those cries for help was someone under extreme duress. Witnesses and tests performed by EMTs shortly afterward show GZ was well within normal ranges.

        Trayvons father was shown a photo of him the next day that showed tear on his face and blood coming from his mouth. Image no parent would be able to forget.

    • bettykath says:

      I agree completely that the Dr. is very conservative. He is also very knowledgeable. He was asked to do a specific task in evaluating the 911 call. He used the approved protocol and found only 3 seconds of useable sound and that was insufficient to proceed.

      It’s possible that if a different question were asked, and someone with somewhat different protocols that are still valid, might get a different answer. Let’s hope so.

      One thing he did that is helpful is that he validated other methods.

      I had no problem in understanding his speech but maybe it’s b/c I have spent time with other Japanese immigrants and have become somewhat accustomed to the accent. I’m still unaccustomed to their extreme politeness.

      • Jun says:

        I think he is full of crap to be honest

        I use no audiology equipment and just use my ears and I can make out

        1) Trayvon or a younger voice at the beginning of the tape, yell out, “Get Off” in a scared manner

        2) I can hear Trayvon squeal in pain.

        3) I can hear a whispery creeper voice similar to Fogen’s but can’t make out anything.

        4) It was clear enough for Fogen to say, he did not recognize the voice as his own screaming and it does not sound like him.

        5) I can make out a younger voice yelling out for help

        6) I hear screams ended with a gunshot, which both the 911 caller and dispatch agreed that the screams ended with the gunshot

        Considering this is using my ears, audiology equipment should be able to eq and highlight frequencies to make the recording even more audible and what i stated is way more than 3 seconds.

        • racerrodig says:

          “…audiology equipment should be able to eq and highlight frequencies to make the recording even more audible and what i stated is way more than 3 seconds.”

          I have a lot of EQ and sound processing gear for my PA system. I can hear without it, but with I clearly hear “get off” “I’m begging you” “I don’t know ’em” and what sounds like a very faint female voice a few seconds before the shot.

          When I use my EQ to get the volume leveled on my meter of what is clearly Trayvon’s voice, I have to move the volume up at least 50% to get the same apparent volume level of Fogen’s voice.

          Why….Fogen was not screaming…..not real hard to figure out.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            Racer, I sure wish you could record and post an audio file of your enhancements. Can do? No can do?

          • racerrodig says:

            i could try. The sound equipment I have is PA stuff but it’s probably not much different than what others use. I’ll have to try and get the signal onto my computer somehow.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            You just need a computer mic, you can get one at Staples or Office Max or Radio Shack, they come with the software to capture audio. Or you could just get a double pronged male jack and plug it in to the computers mic port. Download the software from a free site by googling audio software. Of course, if your computer has a sound card so much the better, google “belarc advisor” it’s software that will tell you about every thing under the hood. Even which programs you don’t use very often or never used so you can unload them.

            Happy hunting and oh by the way all I’ve got the June 6th hearing up in only 2 parts on my evidence pile

      • gbrbsb says:

        I agree with your analysis and I too worked many many years ago, (when I was young), with a Japanese company for 2 years and found their politeness extraordinary, but also their absolute adherence to the “accepted” behaviour, whereby my boss, when I gave in my notice, met with me in secret to offer me a raise and God knows what else to try to change my mind explaining that it was not their custom to plead and I must not tell anyone!

        I do think though that his marked pronunciation is not good for juror sympathy especially with his expertise, i.e. analysing voices of English speakers, but IMBW… but I sincerely hope not.

      • @Jun Are you going to believe Fogen, or trust your lying ears?

      • Lonnie Starr says:

        I don’t know but those two audiologists whom the newspapers tasked to perform analysis seemed to have been able to conclude that it was not gz screaming. The only problem they claimed to have had was, they could not say it was Trayvon, but that was only because they did not have any sample of Trayvon’s voice. Now that the videos and other data have been extracted from his phone, perhaps there is a voice sample there, that they can use for a comparison?

  23. acemayo says:

No one wants him killed now, they want justice system to work.

      @ay2z –

      A lot of testimony today was on “assuming” – that Bernie didn’t turn over evidence to O’Mara, etc. So, we’re seeing the hazard of “assuming.” I fear you’re assuming this is some protective device that fogen is wearing that is “bulking him up” and surely he doesn’t need that in a secure courtroom.

      I would agree with that – no need for such protection.

      What does he need at such times of stress? He’s got a concealed carry permit for a 48-hour supply of Depends, and he’s carrying them in the “vest dispenser” for those who need quick access. They do, however, offer “baffle protection” from the wadding, and hollow-point bullets will fragment upon contact,

      Isn’t science and technology wonderful?

            @Cielo –

            People expand but gold does not. Likely he had it cut off – but would need extra gold to fill the needed expansion. For some reason, this was not done.

            One harvest I was helping the work crew ship out avocados. The wooden bins are about 4 ft. x 4 ft. and hold a half ton (1,000 avocados). The packinghouse delivers the bins by hydraulic truck and they are dumped on the ground. I grabbed one to upright it and a bee or wasp that had alighted stung my left hand – ring finger.

            I’m not sensitive to bee venom so kept on working, then had to rush of, shower & change and head off to a hearing with the state Ag Commissioner. Hot steamy hearing room. Left hand swelled up like a boxing mitt. Stopped in at the local fire station that Friday evening after the hearing and they cut my ring off. A little tricky getting the metal snips under the ring, but they did it neatly.

            So it would be no problem to help Zimmerman out of his quandary. Not getting it repaired is another issue.

            Maybe there’s a metal detector at the local jewelers that won’t let anyone in with a judicially-imposed ankle bracelet …

            (PS: I attended that Friday hearing to address the Ag Commissioner’s permitting transit of uninspected (“phytosanitary” inspection for agricultural pests) Mexican avocados from Mexicali to Long Beach Harbor for shipment to Japan. I cited the long list of beneficiaries: the shipping companies, dockyards, truckers, Mexican growers, and the Chicago bank that was holding all that “paper” for the Mexican treasury – everybody except the California farmers he had taken an oath of office to support. It was all over local TV. Commissioner Clare Berryhill went back to Sacramento and resigned his office on Monday.) A simple bee sting would not keep a good farmer down.

            Farmed recently for 25+ years but life span of avocados is 25-27 years and they are thirsty trees. Water is high priced in CA so I expect to transition to an olive grove + vineyard. But too involved this year in JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON to take time out for grove rejuvenation. Your farm sounds wonderful!

          • parrot says:


            I only interpret passively and actively in two–Spanish and English.(Although I’ve studied other languages).

            It took a lifetime of exposure to these languages to get the linguistic breadth, and depth necessary to pass the federal certification examination. (Very difficult. The exam has a 4 to 5% pass rate).

            Then armed with that linguistic base, you develop and hone interpreting skills.

            So that’s how I make a living, but I love to grow things although I’m not that good at it. (Hence “wannabe farmer”). I haven’t found a way for gardening to pay for itself.

            You are pursuing a complex and demanding career!

At times, I’m sure it’s a daunting task! Some you will love, some you’ll loathe, but you’re a professional, so they’ll never really know.

            Don’t worry about your farm becoming a cash cow (how’s that for a mixed metaphor?) You are getting the nutritional benefits and pleasure from the fruits and veggies you grow. Nothing like a sun-ripened tomato, melon or peach – right?

            It is challenging, but that’s what makes it still interesting after all these years.

            The difficulty of the substandard language you describe is that there’s no way to prepare for it.

            I can compile and study glossaries in the forensic sciences and be ready to interpret with the terms of art on the tip of my tongue.

            But slang and spanglish terms and expressions change constantly and are used in closed circles. How do you prepare for that?

            The remedy is:

            “Your Honor, may the interpreter inquire the meaning of a term?

            In the event I’ve made a mistake: “Your Honor, the interpreter would like to correct the record. The correct interpretation of ABC should be XYZ.”

            I do some medical interpretation, but not extensively, so it is not my area of expertise. I would like to branch, out though.

    West’s new round of questions strike me as redundant, and a waste of the court’s time.

  36. Well, even if the scream analysis is denied (still testimony on this), there is still common sense…

  37. Dr. Nakasone:

    Direct by West

    I doubt that we (the scientific community) have developed a way to reliably compare a terrified shriek from someone stressed by impending death to a voice exemplar from a known individual under normal circumstances. Science is not there yet.

    The pitch not also changes in a scream like that, the muscles in the throat responsible for sound assume or get into new positions.

    After eliminating every part of the scream that is stepped on by other people speaking, the FBI was only able to isolate 3 seconds of the scream

    He believes this is insufficient to perform voice identification.

    • PYorck says:

      Doesn’t that strongly suggest that there are two voices in the background? Otherwise three seconds seems a bit short.

      • chi1224 says:

        The woman who called 911 and the 911 operator are in there too…. but still, I agree with prof L…. 3 seconds is enough. Other experts were able to work with it…. get this guy off the stand… NEXT!

    • ic2fools says:

      If I may add, adult developed vocal cords do not sound the same as undeveloped child/teenager vocal cords. I limit my comment to Trayvons’ vocal cords and Fogen vocal cords.

      Highest point of stress Fogen could not shriek or shrill to that high pitch decibel but Trayvon could.

    • Tzar says:

      it sounds like I have better ears than him
      without any machines I can tell with 100% certainty when the kid is screaming and I can even tell you some of the words he says.

      • parrot says:

        Several witness who were physically present and therefore heard the screams without the distortion of electronic devices agree Tzar, and say it was the boy who was screaming. Off the top of my head there was Mary Cutcher and Selma Mora as well as W18. Any others?

  39. chi1224 says:

    Why is this FBI guy still on the stand? Since when does the FBI define what the courts accept? Since when is the FBI the “gold standard” of anything? They are people who work for the government…. big deal.

        • ic2fools says:

          Unphased 3 sec Power nap, resting them blinky eyes, while attempting to numb his hearing from Trayvons’ screams begging for his life…….

          Did you see afterwards his lips tightened corners/edges curled downwards, sighed heavily — shows exhaustion to make person appear in demand of others’ attention and support. jmo

          no pun intended,not meant to be funny!

          • Yes, and I think the motion to hide witnesses behind a screen to prevent the invisible mob phenomenon was designed to further the image of being victim, prey, exhausted from all of the voluminous threats, and so on.

            All choreographed.

            Truth is, the Trayvon supporters have likely received the most in actual threats and abuse.

          • dianetrotter says:

            Threats against Trayvon’s family and AAs are all over social media, comments sections of news sites, and blogs. I have not seen such wide spread animus and vitriol from supporters of the Martin family.

          • I cannot recall seeing any. Granted, I do not visit the other sites hardly ever, but…I mean for real, why did he hire that really expensive security team he hasn’t paid. I’ll bet they were shaking their heads.

      • ic2fools says:

        Crane I currently am watching first parts of hearing I missed. My take on why Omar wants behind screen anonymity is those three witness are not residents but visitors of a resident who live in the general vicinity of the murder.

        Visitors’ who I believe were never there in the first place but are Fogen supporters a.k.a Killer Trollz paid to lie about the events. I smell durr-fense stinky setup that will be revealed during States’ cross.

        Better yet by Impaired West slower than molAssAss questioning. (snark intended).

        And White is a jealous, vindicitive hater, disgruntled ex-employee who should have notified Judge Debra first before Omar who by the way threw him under the bus when he was no longer of use.

        White is so blinded by his hatred for Bernie, his thought process and reasonsing became clear what he did was out of pure spite. Misleading Kruibos by misinforming him of his potential involvement. That was not Kruibos responsibility, he got clear and precise direction of what his job was.

        White only purpose was to have an inside track of happenings in Coreys’ offices and Bernies business. Used friendly kekeke conversations with BenK to get close, then twisting what info he got from that kid and his trust.

        Now BenK has lost a job and a bright future in his field, be blacklisted all because of White. He was terrified on that stand realizing he had been played and used by White for Whites’ nefarious purposes, loss of respect and any hopes of secure employment in his field with the government.

    We are finally getting to the gist of his testimony, as to the Frye question.

  43. whonoze says:

    I would guess his assertion that any speech that has been stepped on must be disregarded will be challenged by the State’s experts.

    • gbrbsb says:

      IMO “I’m begging you” is only “stepped on” at the beginning of the utterance and even then it is still audible, and “stop” at the end just before the shot, iirc, is not “stepped on” at all, so no wonder the State would challenge it.

  44. KittySP says:

    well…and we just heard that the screams were of someone under extreme duress…GZ was found, during his exam of EMTs to be calm as a cucumber!

            Lonnie, I predict mid way trial West going to give out from exhaustiont. Notice Omar has his interns closer than usual, readying to fill in.

            West truly does not seem to be ‘with it’ He sputtered and mustered up some gumpstion raised his one note voice only to loose his train of thought, when he thought he was onto ‘loop testimony, only to fizz out.

            This may very well be West last case presented in a Courtroom. Needless to say he should have retired long ago. Instead he’ll be suspended or barred for his recent actions.

            It will be interesting to know if he Bar will cut him slack because he is feeble minded.

            Honestly, West is not physically, mentally or emotionally sound to try a court case.

          • Xena says:

            @ic2fools. Yesterday when Bernie was cross-examining West, I was somewhat shocked that West made a personal attack rather than answer the question. Hmmm. Who do we see doing that? Zidiots. West’s behavior was very unprofessional. He can’t control his temper, which makes me think that he speaks in monotone as part of anger management.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            Hahaha… MOM is questioning Reich and you can see that he’s out of his depth. The defense team is sadly lacking sufficient wattage to get the defense bulb brighter than dim. Certainly not enough light to see by. They both need to retire after this and their interns need retraining sufficient wipe this episode from there minds.

          • Lonnie Starr says:

            ^^^^^”their not there. Oh well.

      • ic2fools says:

        Xena, I missed that part I’ll check it out. Knowing how disrespectful West is to Judge Deborah does not surprise me.

        I seriously have come to the conclusion that West has passed his ability to be an effective trial lawyer.

        Not knocking his age at all, it is possible he is experiencing early states of dementia.

        Unable to control his cantankerous temperament, time lapse of thought process and repeating same question multiple times. Most lawyers do repeat same questions phrasing them differently.

        Could possibly be one of the other reasons why Judge Deborah gives him leeway and the fact defense cannot retaliate whining she is biased.

        Hey remember this?:

        Omar needs to help West understand Judge Deborah ‘got the power’…….


        • Xena says:


          I seriously have come to the conclusion that West has passed his ability to be an effective trial lawyer.

          As I understand it, West and O’Mara have both handled criminal cases where they were able to lead their clients into plea bargains in exchange for reduced sentences or to avoid the death penalty. O’Mara is over his head and brought on West, who is now over his head.

          For one thing, neither knows how to handle public opinion. They should have never entertained any communications from White Supremacists. But then, there was the promise of making monetary donations, and O’Mara is like GZ’s guardian, responsible for providing him with food and toilet paper.

          West and O’Mara are not representing only GZ’s interests. They are also representing the interests of White Supremacists.

          Oh yeah — I remember the vid really well. It took me 3 days to find that music track with only the background words. LOL!!

          • cielo62 says:

            Xena~ Maybe they did think that a plea deal would be easy to swing. Little did they realize the real public interest and import of this case. In spite of what Malisha might postulate, the State has ZERO reason to offer a plea deal. They can nail gz and still leave the Sanford PD out of it. In fact, Serino might be pointed to as THE one who actually wanted to charge gz, so the SPD isn’t really at fault, huh? By the same reasoning, both Billy Lee and Wolfinger will no longer be fair game because BOTH are no longer in office. Anyway, my point is, the public furor is centered on gz, since he IS the murderer. The racism within the SPD will be “confronted” and maybe a few minor heads will roll or be demoted. There is no real “fire” to burn down the SPD, even though we have good reason to believe a cover-up by Billy Lee and Wolfinger was in the works. Once gz is convicted, the case will disappear, along with any embarrassing revelations about FL racism.


          • Xena says:


            Xena~ Maybe they did think that a plea deal would be easy to swing. Little did they realize the real public interest and import of this case.

            In criminal cases, the cost to the State is often considered in plea agreements. Of course, the State can prove that GZ committed 2nd degree murder, or Corey would not have been so confident in that charge. Either way he looks at it, GZ’s life is over. If acquitted, he walks away homeless, unemployed, no assets, and a wife awaiting trial.

            In spite of what Malisha might postulate, the State has ZERO reason to offer a plea deal. They can nail gz and still leave the Sanford PD out of it.

            You might have noticed that I’ve not been one involved in discussion of corruption in the SPD. Any corruption in the SPD is to be handled by the feds and not at GZ’s trial. This is a case where an unarmed 17 year old was shot in the heart by a man who profiled him in the plural, took time to aim to shoot, and the lied about it. For me, that takes priority.

          • cielo62 says:

            Xena- I agree that convicting the murderer is the priority here. My point was directed more at Malisha, who believes a plea deal will be offered in order to avoid dealing with the SPD. I disagree.

            I understand and agree because I see no correlation between a plea deal for GZ and investigating the SPD. The State handles the criminal case, and the feds handle investigation into the SPD. Two different jurisdictions.

        Every word you wrote is true! defense can not keep up the pace, Judge Deborah is ready to do the dam thang. court convenes 9:30am on a Saturday. West is not up to it in his obvious physical condition. Omar well Omar dam, he’ll begin throwing in the towel very soon.

        Fogen may as well put a sammich his jacket pocket and be ready to take the perp position. Baliff to his immediate right soon will say stand up and place your hands behind your back, placing cuffs on him escorting him to lockup

        A phrase Reich wrote in his analysis and our Lonnies strong opinion of Fogens’ superiority speaking:

        1.) ‘These Shall Be’

        2.) Listening to 911 I realized the last ‘HELP’ followed by kill shot, is Fogen. Your can hear the deep adult male voice ‘HELLP’, it was very quick and short. This suggestion is only an idea

        3.) ‘My name is Gump, Fogen Gump’. (i can’t help this, gotta get my silly on’ Skrimp puddin’, Skrimp pie, Skrimp cake, Skrimp Taters’, Skrimp Latte’, Skrimp Beer, Ooooo Skrimp Skrimp….. lol lol lol

        4.) Then I look at his face during the proceedings at times I see pure shock on his face, disbelief this has gone this far. idea
        ‘If only…..’

        5.) ‘Believe In Magic’ –‘Fogen Tales’, or H.R. FogenPuf….

    This seems like the kind of testimony that should be taking place during the trial–don’t see where it is focused on the validity, reliability or acceptance of methodology used by the state witnesses.

  46. evokid7 says:

    who is the old man in front of JR?

    • Xena says:

      @evokid7. He’s at every hearing and wears a badge on an lanyard. I think he might be a sheriff assigned to the courtroom to escort GZ in and out of the building, to the washroom, etc.

  47. gbrbsb says:

    Why has GZ never once said he said anything else other than “help” or “help me”. Why did he reply to Serino, ” It doesn’t EVEN sound like me”, i.e. what did he mean when qualifying it with “EVEN”, what else was there that didn’t remind him of himself… could it have been he didn’t recognize the words either? Did he not recognise even saying, “I’m begging you”? Or “Stop”?

    • ic2fools says:

      I would like to know what Fogen meant by ‘These shall be’

      • gbrbsb says:

        I never heard that so I have no idea, I think it was Tchoupi on Whonoze’s blog that had heard something like that but not the same, albeit his did have more sense to it. I absolutely do hear “I’m begging you” and “stop” from before Reich’s analysis so I am as sure as I can be on that. Of course I don’t know, but when Serino replayed the tape for GZ, I would have expected him to say things like, “OMG, it doesn’t sound like me but yes, I was screaming, begging, begging him to stop”, etc. but not one on his side, so to speak, has ever said he yelled/called out/shouted/ etc. anything other than “help” or “help me”, and that makes me think he never said anything other than that and Trayvon’s are the screams you hear above that.

      • ic2fools says:

        Alan Reich wrote he heard Fogen say ‘These shall be’ in his letter. I’ll find the link, Professor also wrote about Reich letter.
        I’ll be back a bit later to post it for you.

      • ic2fools says:


        I found a link for Alan Reich analysis of the 911 call where he hears Fogen say ‘These Shall Be’:

        For example, approximately one second after the start of CALL3, Mr.

        Zimmerman makes a seeminly religious proclamation, “These shall be.”

        His speech is characterized by the low pitch and exaggerated pitch

        contour reminiscent of an evangelical preacher or carnival barker. The

        statement is challenging for the untrained listener to detect as it

        occurs simultaneously with Trayvon Martin’s loud, high-pitched,

        distressed, and tremulous “I’m begging you.” and the 911 Dispatcher’s


        you’ll find it mid way down….

        • Lonnie Starr says:

          Aha… “These shall be…” Your last moments of life!

          It’s what was on gz’s mind: “You’re going to die tonight”, was gz’s mirror image translation, used to put his own words into Trayvon’s mouth! Solved!

          Remember, they encountered each other as much as a minute 10 seconds earlier, before the 911 call began. Thus, if after almost a full minute of proximity, gz can even think of uttering a statement like that, he has positively no fear at all. He’s even still speaking from the superior place more than a minute after making physical contact with Trayvon.

          That should not be the case!

          Remember, again, more than one minute ago, gz is claiming Trayvon’s lethal attack began against “helpless me!”

          Thus, his story goes: After a full minute or more of suffering an attack that was bringing him to the edge of mortality, he says “These shall be…”, and 45 seconds later he ends Trayvon’s life!

          It’s the time line again! One minute and several seconds into the encounter, gz is still displaying his own superiority!

      • ic2fools says:


        Aha… “These shall be…” Your last moments of life!

        It’s what was on gz’s mind: “You’re going to die tonight”, was gz’s mirror image translation

        Also “These shall be your last screams or something to that effect.

        I understand now, further shows how he was/is of depraved mind. Those were some cold blooded words to say to a child while branshing a gun and restraining him.

        Fogen will be screaming ‘I’m begging you’ when he is locked up with real men that will be intimately physicially with him. Then they will call him ‘fuckin punk’ (excuse me)

    • I think serino told him they got him recorded on tape before he played it for gz. and maybe gz assumed it was right AFTER he killed Trayvon. so when he heard Trayvon’s voice he actually was totally surprised they caught that!

      • gbrbsb says:

        Never heard they told him they had him on tape, but IMO he didn’t recognize the voice and/or words because what was recorded was the stronger voice, i.e. Trayvon’s screaming, and not his voice calling out “help me” which is softer and underneath Trayvon’s.

    • KittySP says:

      Serino made that statement because he observed GZs non emotional response to the replaying of those horrific screams…who among us, after having experienced the events GZ claimed happened would have been able to listen to that call and not have responded emotionally? it didn’t EVEN sound like him cause it wasn’t him. POINT, BLANK, PERIOD!

      • Xena says:

        @KittySP. GZ said why he yelling for help, and at no time did he say it was because he was in fear for his life.

  48. whonoze says:

    State should be objecting to the playing of the recording unless the technical provenance is specified. I.e., is this in the same format as recorded by the 911 system, a direct digital copy, or has it been transcoded and/or compressed?

    Skelator Seriously get to the dam point. You know good and well you don’t understand what the expert is talking about.

    You’ve asked the same question for the past five minutes, and the expert keeps getting more technical on your dum azz.

    PLEASE LET THE POOR MAN OFF THE STAND….Skelator questioning is going no where

    • Malisha says:

      This witness never made any analysis of the tapes, right? So he is testifying only about methodologies. He sounds like a professor of voice recognition technology.

      The FBI was not trying to find out exactly who said what to whom on the tapes; they were trying to find out if there was evidence on those tapes of either a hate crime or of a state agency denying civil rights to a victim of a crime. So whether they heard Fogen say “These shall be” and heard Trayvon Martin scream or whether they heard Fogen say “fucking coons” or “fucking punks” — the purpose of their investigation would guide what they used to do their investigation. As this witness says, there are various levels of analysis:

      speech recognition
      speaker recognition
      content recognition
      language recognition

      If the question is: “Who said ‘you’re gonna die tonight motherfucker’?” you get one kid of analysis going on that is most appropriate to answer that question. If, on the other hand, the question is: “What did he say: ‘You’re gonna die tonight motherfucker!’ or ‘please, I’m begging you, don’t shoot!’?” then there’s another method that might be more appropriate and might get closer to giving an accurate answer.

      Using the spectrographic method coupled with aural identification by the analyst, I think it’s going to be pretty clear that the prosecution witness can testify beyond a reasonable doubt, using methods that are recognized as generally acceptable within the field, that Trayvon Martin called out for help, begged Fogen to spare his life, screamed in terror and agony, and fell silent when he was shot in the heart.

  60. lurker says:

    O’Mara and West shouldn’t have wasted all that time with their sanctions sideshow. This guy is a rebuttal witness going out of order because he’s from out of town and has to leave. And it’s going to be pretty hard to recall back to what he has to say AFTER the prosecution presents their witnesses (tomorrow).

    • crazy1946 says:

      BDLR should have objected to the change of order for the witness, it wasn’t costing the state anything only the blood suckers were on the hook for the expense! This is just another ploy by MOM to force the delay of the trial…..

      • truthseeker66 says:

        BDLR is to complying. He needs to be more of a hard ass. MOM is an unethical POS.

      • whonoze says:

        Assuming the State has done its homework, they would know pretty much what Dr. N. is going to say. If they let him go first, I would guess they are prepared to counter him on cross.

        IANAL, but I still don’t see anything in his testimony that goes to admissibility. However, he might be a formidable rebuttal witness at trial. He seems to know what he’s talking about. I would assume the argument will be that his standards are too conservative, and the State will argue that their experts’ conclusions have a measure of validity even if they don’t meet Nakasone’s criteria.

        • crazy1946 says:

          I somewhat agree, however it is difficult to follow his line of reasoning without having heard the other experts first… It seems as if he is giving a blanket denial of the validity of any technique that does not meet his standards. Too bad we live in an imperfect world that often does not conform to the standards that the experts wish to impose…. IMO!

  61. racerrodig says:

    820 + posts !!!! it’s 3:47 !!

  62. elcymoo says:

    Listening to the exchange between West and Dr. Nakasone brings back memories of poor Marcia Clark spending all that time having to painstakingly explain the relatively new science of DNA/rNA to the jurors in O.J. Simpson’s trial. She completely lost most of them and the home audience as well.

  63. ay2z says:

    He is speaking theory, content, little bit about the speaker himself, and the surroundings. Yeah, it’s going to be extremely difficult to identify differences between foge’s recorded voice exemplar from the breaking pitches of the screams that indicate a young male with immature physical changes vs fully mature male.

    Analogy– doesn’t mean you can’t group peaks for general identification of qualities of differences between speakers, adult, immature, projection, emotion, or whatever else.

  65. Malisha says:

    And uh, you have to also allow for the fact that an individual will use his common sense, and when he is listening to something that he believes to be an individual speaking, he will apply certain logical tests to what he is hearing, such as: “Will a guy scream like bloody murder when he is aiming and pulling the trigger of a loaded gun? Or will a kid scream like that when he sees that a stranger who has chased him down and cursed him is now aiming a gun at his heart?” Hmmmm… I wonder. Somebody go stay at Holiday Inn and hurry back here to tell me.

  66. KittySP says:

    He looks as if he’s ready to jump up and blurt out…”it was the kid screaming”…

  67. Nef05 says:

    Was it Owen or Primeau who used aural recogniton? It sounds like this guy is sayin that is an acceptabe method. If so, that’s one prosecution audio expert, who excluded Zimmerman, who it appears satisfies the Frye test.

  68. Leisa says:

    So this new group is saying experts should no longer be able to testify using the methods that have been in place and used in courts for years?

  73. Big Willie says:

    No disrespect to the good doctor, but…. all the SLOW talking between the doc and West is about to drive me crazy!

    • rayvenwolf says:

      In regards to the doc I am pretty sure it has to do with his accent more than anything. At a normal or above normal talking pace everyone but the court reporter might have trouble keeping up. Fogen certainly would.

      BTDT and still have moments of it at work having to slow myself down when repeating the same old frozen yogurt spiel. Born and raise in vegas with a touch of southern accent under the west coast. So currently living in maine, I know good and well when I get rolling people loose track of what I am saying.

  74. “Real good knowledge” Is that a technical term?

  75. Only most of the members were selected carefully. The rest were drawn out of a hat.

  76. What is this? The expert gets to ask himself questions and then answer them?

  77. chi1224 says:

    So they are using a scientific audio expert to debunk the science of audio analysis?
    I’d like to add that not all epxerts work for the FBI. Just because an expert for the FBI isn’t successful doesn’t mean an expert in private practice won’t be… many people don’t want to work for the FBI, for good reason.

    • Dave says:

      My God! This guy talks as slowly than West himself. They’re just running down the clock.

      • Big Willie says:

        Ha ha, you posted at the same time as me, regarding the slllllllllllllloooooooooooooooowww talking.

      • SearchingMind says:

        I like the doc. He is calm, collected, very articulate, precise and to the point. Not someone to be ruffled easily (and certainly not by someone of West’s caliber).

        • parrot says:

          I do to, Searching. However, I wish the questions elicited more specific and focused testimony relevant to the recordings in this case.

    • whonoze says:

      Not debunk the whole field. They want to use him to distinguish between audio analysis methods that are well accepted in the field, and produce results considered “robust” within the research community, and methods that are more controversial, and produce findings considered “fragile” as Dr. Nakasone used the term earlier.

      They haven’t gotten to any substance yet, (listening to this is like watching paint dry), but I can’t see how his testimony would go to admissibility rather than weight. But, perhaps we’ll see (or rather hear)… If we all can stay awake…

      • fauxmccoy says:

        yes, it’s like watching paint dry — being in california, i stayed up all night so as not to miss the 6 AM starting bell. i think this might just send me to nappy time.

    • towerflower says:

      That can be looked at in many ways. Some working for the government do so because it’s the federal government… higher LE than the FBI. A federal attorney might be there for the love of it and some might be there for the safety. Some do it for the safety; steady paycheck, good retirement benefits.

      Me, I did it because the federal government was the only employer for my career…..air traffic controller.

      He has an excellent English vocabulary. He probably also has a good ear for language.

      It is very hard for many people who never formed an “L” sound in their native language to say it properly later in life. Let’s respect our fellow citizens who have immigrated from other countries and have enriched the cultural heritage of our country.

I would not ever in my-life feel comfortable dealing with them or being around them. Because I think, fee and know every-time I see their hands or eyes, that they choose to take a human life.

    Are they back in court yet?

  91. groans says:

    MOM was really STUPID to spill the beans about his plan to use the sanctions issue as a reason to ask for a continuance AGAIN!

    (I think he said that when questioning West?)

    Judge caught it, too. That is NOT the relief he asked for in his motion for sanctions – and he just does not seem able to comprehend: Trial begins on June 10!

  92. towerflower says:

    if anyone has connection/sound problems, I suggest a free app that has a live feed from channel 6. It was the only Zimmerman app in the apple store. I watch the live feed on my IPad and follow here on my computer. So far I haven’t had any issues with sound and there are no commercials.

  93. bettykath says:

    The bad part of cutting it off is that MOM still has just his side of the story for the press conference. BDLR had a witness that might have cleared things up a bit.

    I was impressed by West’s manner of presentation, at least much more than what I’d seen previously.

  94. Woow! says:

    Oowee I can hardly wait to read the professor’s thoughts and summary of this hotmess hearing.

    • ay2z says:

      I think Prof and Crane should just turn off computers this evening and enjoy their away time.

      The media’s reporting is skewed, such as cfnews headling of this morning, saying IT worker found previously ‘unreleased’ photos. Do these reporters not pay attention?

      He didn’t say that, he suspected, he alledged, he assumed, and then instead of calling Bernie or Bernie’s boss, he called Wes.

      • Woow! says:

        I feel sorry for the IT Director. He had no idea what he had stumbled into. His own attorney slung him under a train. Did you see the look on his face when Bernie said …”you attorney testified earlier that he had not …”. Bernie then went to something else after telling the judge its in the transcript meaning IT guy can go back and see for himself how his attorney did him.

      • ay2z says:

        Bet he diescovered what he stepped into when he was questioned about the ‘leaks’ to a blog that he was one of two people set in the investigators sights, or in this case ‘sites’.

  95. KittySP says:

    said it once, will say it again…watching MOM and West in court reminds me of the scene in Django when Big Daddy and his band of bumbling horseman couldn’t see their way in the dark through the holes cut out in their white hoods…IDIOTS!

  96. Leisa says:

    I hope that Jr. Will not be sitting in his current seat for trial. I don’t think I can stand to look at his face every day. It’s bad enough to have to listen to Mom’s nails on a chalkboard voice. Makes me cringe.

      They are good examples of lawyers who just ass speak, they don’t do the most basic research before going on their entertainment shows with flashy magic side falling mystery boxes that bring a sense of showbiz to the serious topic, complete with ‘stringers’ that evoke a feeling of suspense. Sad.

    • Leisa says:

      That is why I don’t watch on tv. They are not paying attention to the things going on in court and you miss more than you see. Thank goodness for computers.

      your fault for watching them after seeing that reenactment (and leatherman related article)

  100. Nef05 says:

    I understand why she did it, but I wish she had waited until after he FDLE IT guy had testified. Now, the soundbite eveyone will televise is West’s little laugh and “We CAUGHT you…”, without the rebuttal of the FDLE guy to refute it. And they won’t hear anything to refute it until AFTER the trial, and jury selection starts Monday.

    • I almost worried about that, but then I remembered what’s been going on in the media lately. I don’t think the trial is gonna get as much press as trunk mom did, but they will show some.. and it looks to me that the media has turned on the defense pretty publicly. I think it happened when they let out all those things around the last hearing. i think they didn’t like that kinda smearing the victim..and omar did it using such benign examples practically ‘every-teenager-done-it’ type stuff like smoking pot- But THEY called it DRUGS, as if Trayvon’s pics of sprouts were actually just the tip of his deep dark drug life of crime, because every parent would agree, if their kids get’s caught smoking pot, it’s fine with them to shot him on the spot!!!

      i just think i see a shift in peoples minds. they seem to have gotten more sympathetic to Trayvon, and offended that he is being attacked by the defense.

  101. whonoze says:

    MOM is showing he’s making no attempt to stay on Nelson’s good side. I have to conclude he’s looking beyond the trial — which he certainly must expect to lose at this point — and trying to set up grounds for an appeal.

    • ay2z says:

      Yes. He’s got one strike against her ruling on the depo of Ben issue, the extremely ‘limited’ depo on Ben, that is.

      He’s chalking everything up and trying to put down any attempt at the ‘race’ implications, while he’s planning a full on attack of the politics of the case post trial. Jr. will do his part and take care of the female lawyer, so he thinks.

  102. groans says:

    A whole morning-plus, wasted on a bunch of junk that can’t even be authenticated and has no chance of becoming admissible evidence for that and several other reasons!

      Ok, 10 minutes. Interesting stage act so far. 😉

      They’re dropping this sanction nonsense, and will return to it after the trial is over. They’re moving on to the Frye hearing, so that the court and parties are ready for trial to start on Monday.

    • amsterdam1234 says:

      Ten minute break and then they’ll move on to the Frye hearing. Nelson just said stop wasting the courts time trying to get money out of the State. You can try again after the trial has been concluded.

    • and yes, we’re having another recession. I think march of 2028 🙂

      • whonoze says:

        You know LeaNder’s not a native speaker of English, right?

      • LeaNder says:

        Whonoze, that’s exactly why I love people like shannon pointing out these mistakes to me. Recession is what? I see it’s that simply it’s Rezesssion in German. 😉

        And if the judge leaves the courtroom and takes a break it’s what?

      • LeaNder says:

        OK, it’s Rezession the only difference is the c. No three ss’s.

        • yes i know you’re german that’s why i laughed!
          still funny 🙂

          so recess is when they take a break in court or when kindergarteners go play for a half hour..

          recession is the economic disaster we barely survived thru.

          • LeaNder says:

            I was pretty close, you have to admit. 😉

            And since I had earphones on, I could hear the hearing started again at exactly the time I was starting a comment. See, I have a little excuse too. 😉

            Please always do this, especially when you think it is funny. Rezession in German means the same as the English word, by the way. It works sometimes, but it does not always. E.g. with the word sympathy it does not.

            Thanks for pointing this out. Very helpful. I wasn’t familiar with the word recess I guess. I am now with your help.

          • parrot says:

            I wish my French and Italian were half as good as your English.

          • LeaNder says:

            parrot, English was always my favorite language. Initially that may well have been connected with music. Our own was horribly boring when I was a teen. It also always remained my favorite in spite of the fact that my arch enemy was my director and English teacher in high school and in the last two years I shifted to physics for exactly that reason.

            I am pretty sure that my Italian and French may be worse than yours. Especially using it, takes usually a couple of days in holidays to get the vocabulary up to the surface for longer exchanges beyond simple questions or answers. The problem is I am using neither of those very much. And I rarely read in those languages too. That makes all the difference.

          • every one I know in my family ( mom’s side) is german. so i’m used to the language nuances, I find it endearing really 🙂 though I spoke much better german as a kid ( when my mom was alive) now I depend on the similarities between the languages the most. It’s kinda easy for me to spot a german’s writings in English- most of the time! I think it’s my secret super powers.
            I think it comes from my ex who did an international MBA ( obvious in English ) I edited so many papers for him I think he owes me half his earnings 🙂

            oh and I know you are a stickler for detail, 100% fact orientated.. I know you have to have the unvarnished truth and data before you can even begin to analyze it! and damn you’re good!! lol I wish I was like you- ein bisschen etwas!

            btw. I’m not positive but I believe you’re in Cologne? my mom’s from Viersen ( kinda Monchengladbach/Düsseldorf area ) i miss my times there..i don’t have the money nor the people i used to have to visit anymore. it’s not like the kind of place i’d go for a vacation with my six y.o, w/o friends or family to hang with… now i’m melancholy = same thing in german too..might not be spelled the same. 😦

            Yes, Shannon, I am in Cologne. Viersen is slightly North West close to the Netherlands. Melancholy is the same word simply “ie” in the end instead of “y”. Basically most of the words with either Greek or Latin roots are similar. Sympathy is one of the exceptions, it doesn’t have a trace of compassion in German. It’s simply liking someone. I could say someone is “sympathisch” meaning likeable.

            Concerning stickler to detail, I was surprised when I got that feedback from two members of a study group in university the first time. But there is a gain of truth to it, I guess.

            I guess I have slightly recovered from my shock concerning West. Looked at closer he does not listen but simply tries to repeat his talking points.

            An American once tried to tells me that is all it is about, if you want to win a debate. Something he was taught in Harvard, he wrote. I don’t remember how exactly he put it at the moment, but vividly remember that debates with him were very pretty repetitive and boring as a result most of the time.

          • PiranhaMom says:


            Strictly speaking, “in recess” is the precise term to use for legislative and judicial proceedings. They don’t “take a break” or “time out” or “go to lunch;” they “recess” (verb). It’s the formal term, always used.

            Recess in schools is play-time (time away from classroom work).

            Recess in architecture is a niche area (a pulled-back area).

            Recession in economics is a “pulling back” in the economy (opposite to a “boom.”)

            You Latin professor would quote the verb “cedere” as “to go.” We proceed when we go forward; we march in a procession; we recede when we pull back. Same root applies to “legal proceedings.” That describes what went forward in the courtroom.

            Thanks for the German word. I could tell you had figured this out.

          • LeaNder says:

            So you covered the whole world field for me, Piranha. Recede – recess it a good memory help, yes and cedere may help too. That’s more yield or withdraw or give way. Maybe my by now vague memories of Caesar’s De Bello Gallico would help explain why recede initially had a military ring for me. 😉

          • PiranhaMom says:


            Your reference to recede as a military term shows you have an acute grasp of military reports: “retreat” = abject abandonment of the military objective (worst); “withdrawal” would only be coupled with “strategic” (but needs to be linked to the statement of the new strategy); and “recede” is a subtle withdrawal indicating “Of a transient nature.” Recede is used by the military as non-culpable in that they expect to retake the ground they lost.

            Of course, there are few ground wars anymore; not since the Korean Conflict. VietNam was a guerilla campaign; long and grinding with no effective ground attainment aim. This “progress” under McNamara was measured by “kills,” a number often inflated and never able to be substantiated.

            Alas, in the Iraq War, Bush could only ask “how man killed?” The professional military were appalled. That question lost all military relevance 40 years ago. Forever.

            The sea “recedes” with the tide … but it always comes back again.

            Thus a courtroom or legislative “recess” indicates “we’ll be back at the stated time, on the same track.”

          • LeaNder says:

            I don’t really have much knowledge in military terms, apart from the fact that I had to read Caesar in school. But the way you define recede in that context is exactly how I remember he used cedere, as ruse, a trick, only seemingly yielding, seemingly withdrawing. I hated Caesar to be quite honest, it’s so self-celebatory. But the WOT raised my interest in this topic again.

            This was a bad day, although hardly anyone here will agree with me. I had this feeling since I read Nakasone’s report.

            Now that I heard Trayvon’s voice I am more than ever convinced that it was him screaming. It’s a lot closer to the scream.

            I thought from early on they would challenge this with science. declare it not determinable following Nakasone. Makes me pretty melancholic really. So we have the tape but it does not really help much in spite of the horrible little yelps of the reenactment.

            Owen’s trick to multiply the same sampling several times, really makes sense to me on the surface.

            It’s really strange, in this context it feels I may well be on the other side in these type of arguments, only not in Fogen’s case, I have to admit.

          • PiranhaMom says:


            The only purpose of the Frye Hearing is whether there are established methods – not which one – to allow forensic experts to testify.

            Judge Nelson narrowly interprets.

            Judge Nelson also gives wide latitude to the defense, such as not ordering a gag order so far. She “gave” that to the defense – and DE-fueled any attempt to appeal the verdict because of her “prejudice.” Smart move by JN,

            Thus I believe she will have no trouble certifying the audio experts, which the prosecution wants.

            You may recall that JN shuts herself off entirely from the media – no TV, no newspapers, no internet, no blogs, no Public Radio ..

            Astoundingly, the defense insisted on playing the blood-curdling 911 tape, from which I expect she had hermetically concealed herself.

            It is so riveting, so excruciating to hear, that I believe it MUST have had an emotional impact on the Judge.

            She will not permit it to go unheard by the jury, nor unexamined by the experts.

          whatcha wanna bet omar’s got a problem with doing the frey hearing???

          O’Mara’s motion and argument is because he knows it was Trayvon screaming, has no expert to say otherwise, and GZ insisted that he do something to prevent that evidence from being entered at trial, so Papa Zim and Junior can be the ONLY “expert” witnesses — just like LLMPapa’s video says.

    OM: We need this information in this phase of the trial Your Honor.

    JN: Explain why you need it.

    OM: If indeed Trayvon Martin was just as my client thought, a drug addict up to no good with guns and violence and MMA and underage girls and beating up Sherman Ware on his phone, and if all that is allowed in, then we can prove my client’s self-defense claim.

    JN: Your client has not made a self-defense claim Mr. O’Mara.

    OM: Well he WOULD if you would let him testify anonymously behind a screen and not expose him to cross-examination.

    JN: You already asked for that and I denied it. If you want him to testify he has to swear his oath and take the stand and be questioned and cross-examined like any other witness here.

    OM: But he can’t risk doing that, Your Honor; there are thugs out to kill him if he does that.

    JN: Oh I see. So what do you prefer?

    OM: He wants to proffer to the court, through me, that the young thug got himself dead because my client was forced to defend himself from being murdered on 2/26/2012.

    JN: OK, you want me to instruct the jury that they should believe that and that we can dispense with testimony and cross-examination?

    OM: Yes Your Honor, because that is the American Way.

    Okay, I really do not understand computer and cellphone technology nor all the legalities here.

    However, I do have a comment using my “mother wit”:

    I am going back to White saying that he and K were at the same restaurant and eating a separate tables.

    (This was at the time that K no doubt was experiencing grief over the death of his wife. He probably was emotionally vulnerable.)

    Up to this point (say in January) K was just catching the difference in the bites of the cellphone info and giving BLDR the “corrections” which BLDR, in fact, DID act on and update whatever.

    Then, along comes White to K’s table at the restaurant. White then or before had given his condolences to K over the loss of K’s wife.

    Because White and K had originally been sitting at separate tables, it does not seem to me that K had any originally intentions of talking to White (for legal advice over his cellphone-info legal exposure).

    I think we have to ask how White “drew” K’s concerns out of K once White sat down at K’s restaurant table.

    How did the conversation evolve into K’s technical work for the State? Did White himself cause K to suddenly be concerned that K might have “legal exposure”? Had K even considered this possibility before his encounter with White at the restaurant?

    Any thoughts?

    • Two sides to a story says:

      Did White engineer this entire scenario?

    • truthseeker66 says:

      White was looking for an opportunity to screw AC. DNK what IT idiot motivation was.

    • gbrbsb says:

      Interesting theory you have there. With their meeting as you describe (I had to go check and sign off deliver for some roof tiles during BDLR’s cross) sounds like a very casual encounter and strange it should go from “sorry to hear about you wife”, to K retaining White to represent him for a failure to disclose he isn’t even sure actually happened.

  162. PYorck says:

    Is it just me or did Kruidbos find out on the stand that the defense had screwed him over and he ruined his career for nothing?

  163. SearchingMind says:


    1. O’Mara’s IT-expert is more competent than Mr. Kruidbos (the State’s IT-expert). This is new (and I hope no reason for concern).

    2. O’Mara had- and published information he claims the State hid from him. The State did not have that information because the State’s expert (i.e. Kruidbos) was not competent enough to extract that information.

    3. BDLR did not say this but O’Mara violated Discovery Rules by not providing the State the information he extracted.

    No Discovery violation. MOTION DENIED!

      ruined lives? oh yeah that’s true. I heard RVC’s home value is at a low and no one can sell their house/condos. My wife and I were joking about grabbing one for like 85k.

    Recess break: Anyone got some really bad Musak?? If so, it might be appropriate but please keep it to yourself!! 😉

    How about a little smile instead.

  167. ay2z says:

    Recess to 1:40 EST. MOM wanted more than one hr, much to do, Judge Nelson didn’t give in to his latest camera op whine.

  168. Tzar says:

    Man…what is the defense doing?

    • ay2z says:

      Spreading the poison. I think this could be what Bernie was overheard on the after court last week, where Bernie said “That’s not fair, Mark.”

  169. boyd says:

    I’d like to know the education of this IT guy. His critical thinking is atrocious.

    Why inject yourself in a case when you don’t know all the facts?

    And he should know the raw bin file contains all he thought the Defense did not get.

    Also he said cellbrite software cost $8k. So likely there are copyrights and licenses issued, one just cannot GIVE it to someone. Did any of that ever come up in court?

    • ay2z says:

      He wants to get in good with Ms. Corey’s replacement… in the future. A gamble and an incentive to be some sort of SAO mole for White to future career benefit, to undermine the present SA.

      • ay2z says:

        Note ‘Wes’ has not yet billed him, doesn’t remember when he talked to his client first or opened a client file, or made any notes around first contact time, nor did Wes notify Judge Nelson, nor did he notify the Fla Bar Assn, nor did he speak to anyone at the SAO because he said he assumed he would not get the truth (that was an ASSumption on his part only).

    • Tzar says:

      he thought he was exposed to legal risks before? well let’s see what happens when he makes himself a target of the DA’s office due to exposing confidential information. He seems to have no fucking idea that they now may need to make an example of him. Consider what he did, and what the ramifications of him getting away with it would be. Any disgruntled employee may now be embolden to play with the people’s evidence as part of their personal vendetta; the DA’s office can’t have that. And you know what, his lawyer can’t save him, in fact mr. white seems a bit out of practice.

      • Malisha says:

        WHO (not even lawyers or public office, but ANYBODY) would ever hire an IT guy who sold confidential information out of the Florida prosecutor’s office? He’ll have to go to work for those Nigerians who always get lost in airports and have to e-mail home for money to escape terrible situations. But he’ll have to be physically outsourced to India even to do that!

      • boyd says:

        That’s why I was curious about his education. No matter the degree the most important thing I think other than subject matter, is conditioning the brain to think critically the remainder of your life.

        Got on the stand and tangled with BDLR without all the facts?
        using the phrase from the Gladiator movie. “That was not prudent”

  170. whonoze says:

    West Coast: tuned in late. Did they do the Frye hearing before this, or is that yet to come?

  171. amsterdam1234 says:

    I think Nelson has about had it.

    • SearchingMind says:

      Nelson has a lot of patience, really. Some Judges would have interjected and told O’Mara to wrap it up! This is The Best of Beavis and Butthead (oh I love that series).

      • fauxmccoy says:

        nothing better than a B&B ‘moronathon’ … i think we’ve got a good 6 week stretch coming up 🙂

      • amsterdam1234 says:

        I was sitting up straight when they feed came back, and saw West on the stand.
        I just love O’Mara’s severe voice and West’s long suffering drone.

    My imagination, or is this guy’s brown nose getting bigger?

      Trent had the first 30-45 minutes up while the rest of the hearing was still going.

  174. ay2z says:

    MOM asks about release of retirement funding increases/financial info that had been leaked.

    Public records request at time it happened, Ms. Corey said info was public records request. She didn’t think that K had done it, according to ‘K’.

    Email with screenshots, K said he made it, to notate difs between the two releases, to Osteen and cc BDLR. Subject “File Differences” but he put in no case number, says office policy not to id emails by case number/name, put not specifics into email (told by SAO)

  175. YQ says:

    MOM’s in CYA mode now.

    “I didn’t tell you anything to say in court right???”


  176. do we really need the extra theatrics from this liar? isn’t he already getting enough attention in the pressers?

  177. Correction: confidentiality ..

  178. ay2z says:

    K: “We didn’t even try it in house” (recover from the phone)

    MOM: “Heh…”

    K: calls his lawyer “Wes White”
    K: “I don’t know the date” (re: put on admin. leave)
    K: “I would prefer not to make those accusations” (re: employee underlings, access, etc taken away from him)

    MOM: Anger, animosity t’wards B?
    K: “No.”

    Mom, buying the gun actually existed in Feb ’12 report… “surprise you?”

    K: “No”

    (Feb 2012???)

      That sounds like the dumb IT guy. Ever since they started these Strayer schools for IT, I’ve seen plenty of these types entering IT. We used to mostly have Math or EE BS degree types in IT back in the day. I’s dotted, T’s crossed. Some co-workers and I were rolling laughing at this guy.

      Like dude, what are you doing testifying about something you know nothing about?

  186. SearchingMind says:

    Bernie has completely devoured this Kruidbos guy. What a Sky-hawk!

    B brings up info in attny’s office is confidential and remains confidential?

    K says ‘yes’

    ooo… like a victim of sexual batter?

    K: “Yes”

    B brings up general examples of reasons for this, and other examples, gangs, destruction of evidence, etc

    K: “I didn’t know what you have turned over”

    B: but you continued to work here, for myself and Mr. Guy etc…
    … you had no problems doing that?

    K: “No”

  189. Nef05 says:

    You’re finished dude. You will never work for any entity, public or private that requires confidentiality within the company/entity. Now, it appears you mayhave violated a colleage’s personal medical info, so no one wants to work with you, either. Find a new career, or start fixing computers out of your house to make rent.

    You’re done.

    So Omara already knew that trayvon didn’t take those photos of the gun and pot plant. They were imported from a 3rd party software.program.

    • ladystclaire says:

      It seems to me, that Mark O’IDIOT is digging his own grave plus hammering in the final nail of his own coffin as well. he is making himself look worse as the days go by. this is what he gets for being IN BED with the racist bigoted misfits.

      This man can’t be much of an attorney, to the point that he has to build his defense (NOT) around his taking orders/advice from people such as the misfits of OZ. this man needs actually needs to pay a visit to the Wizard himself because, IMO he has not got all that GOD promised him.

      He has neither a HEART or a BRAIN.

    • charlieh says:

      Can anyone let me me know where in the hearing this information was revealed? Because if the photo of the gun wasn’t even Trayvon’s, then the Zidiots have even less then the nothing they already had on the whole “Trayvon had a gun!” nonsense.

    • Malisha says:

      Too simple. I wish it had been:

      Is that an objection, Mr. White?

      No, Your Honor. That was an ostrich.

      Sustained. When you want to make that ostrich into an objection it will be overruled.

  201. Tzar says:

    Amazing..what did he think was gonna happen on the stand? Bernie would offer him tea and crumpets?

    he is a fucking child!

  202. Nef05 says:

    White is pitiful How do you think it’s not relelvant to ask if this guy was pissed about being accused of previously leaking private information.

    OMG! This is not the 1st time this guy has pulled something like this… What an idiot!

  204. ay2z says:

    K says never provided the bin file to anyone outside the office, only verbal description to Mr. White.

    K is no forensic expert in this area. B established K never went to Cell-brite, Osteen (sp) did.

    B: Why a concern if you didn’t do anything wrong?

    Now on his employment history in this field, city then SAO. Started with SAO under Corey.

    Issues with your supervisor? Hmmms…. haws….
    His access, downgraded his authority — less number of people, shorter lunch hour, etc, curtailed before any of this going on.

    Where is B going with this? Disgruntled and wanting to make waves?

    April 2013, early April, B and Ms. Corey, re: his access to information that was leaked on a blog (personal employee health info put out). Either you or someone else, who had done this. One of two people, K admits.

    Other person,— White?

  205. Shari says:

    Okay so help me out here. Fogen’s lawyers made an allegation that BDR hid evidence. Has it been proven today that he has hid no evidence? The defense complained about the costs associated with getting the info from Trayvon’s phone. That is not up to the state, the defense has big money donors. Now the IT guy got on the stand and said, no BDR has not hid anything, right? Also the defense was talking about the pictures last year.

    I’m not seeing how they figured the pics were relevant. A black hand holding a gun, a pic that we all know was deleted off the phone pre-Fogen. What do they prove when Fogen had a REAL gun that he used to murder a child. A gun he took everywhere.

    • Dave says:

      They didn’t have to buy the software. They could have had the BIN file translated by an IT consultant who did.

      • Shari says:

        Thanks. So they did have the info. The state withheld nothing. It was up to them to hire someone to extract info from it. This was proven today?

  210. Tzar says:

    Be careful now, youngin
    the question is have you had issues or disagreement with your new boss?

  211. Malisha says:

    OK, the IT guy was “not an attorney” so that is the reason he did not know to go to his own boss, his own office, to check on what he should do about his concerns.

    BUT he formulated some concerns about how the information was being handled based upon legal considerations of what is proper for prosecution and defense to DO while taking part in a criminal trial and dealing with evidence. And he acted on those concerns, including hiring his own attorney to facilitate? Did I get that right?

  212. chi1224 says:

    If Bernie did nothing wrong, why are these idiots still on the stand?! This seems like a ploy to me from sleeze ball O’Mara to keep the “prosecution misconduct” headline up as long as possible! Why doesn’t Bernie just pass and let the judge rule?!

    • Tzar says:

      If Bernie did nothing wrong, why are these idiots still on the stand?!

      Is this from the O’Mara school of no cross-examination?

  213. YQ says:

    okay, he ONCE worked with the State… I’m clear now-still his ethics is questionable.

  214. YQ says:

    Mr. White told him that he needed to talk with O’Mara although he himself decided not to inform Corey and team??? He is the IT Director of the State, am I right?

    • Two sides to a story says:

      Veddy strange.

    • SoulSistaWoo says:

      YQ… You might want to rephrase that question to… “He was the IT Director of the State?”…

      I hope he has a confirmed new position… because Corey and co. will be gunning for his ass after this. I have a feeling his work environment will become VERY VERY hostile, until he types up his e-mail of resignation.
      CTFU! He is young and dumb… and again I say, Everyone that comes in contact with Fogen becomes a loser and gets slimmed.

      This poor sap offers a teacheable moment for employees. It is: STAY IN YOUR LANE!!!! If you are an IT guy, do THAT job. The State of Florida Prosecutors have no obligation to talk about case strategy with an IT guy. It is not your business to speculate on what “evidence” will or will not be given to anybody.

      The second teachable moment is: Be smart enough to understand what team you are on.
