I believe that we have completed our analysis and discussion regarding whether the use of doxing and breitbarting to intimidate and assassinate a person’s character constitutes witness intimidation, if used to discredit and intimidate a witness in a murder case.
The clear answer is “Yes.”
Moreover, I believe the two efforts by the defendant’s supporters to discredit and intimidate Dee Dee, which successively targeted two innocent girls named Dee Dee, constituted at the very least criminal attempts to intimidate a witness.
Since the perpetrators proudly declared their intent to intimidate the real Dee Dee when they mistakenly went after the wrong Dee Dees, and there is no doubt that the real Dee Dee found out about and was intimidated by those efforts, which were reported by the media, I believe the perpetrators already have committed at least two completed offenses of witness tampering.
I say “at least two,” because each lie, misrepresentation or threat is a completed crime. For example, 10 lies, misrepresentations or threats targeted against one witness constitutes 10 separate crimes or counts of witness intimidation.
Needless to say that the people who have committed these crimes are in deep trouble, even if they only get charged with attempted witness intimidation.
Are they stupid enough to continue their search for the right Dee Dee?
Only time will tell.
They have failed to demonstrate even a scintilla of intelligence, so I recommend against betting the ranch that they will stop.
By endorsing the CTH as a legitimate website and source of helpful information and ideas to use in defending GZ, Mark O’Mara has only himself to blame if the public associates him with the unlawful efforts to intimidate Dee Dee.

Now, I want to take a look at O’Mara’s use of motions to disclose information that should not be disclosed.
Xena raised this issue yesterday when she asked me if depositions are supposed to be released to the public.
I replied that the answer is “No.”
Thank you. O’Mara did manage to get in parts of one — IIRC, Santiago, that he included as an Exhibit with a Motion.
I believe O’Mara has been deliberately publicizing information, which he knows should not be publicized, by appending it to a marginally appropriate motion that he creates to serve as a vehicle to publicize the information in a manner that provides him with plausible deniability.
In other words, he has not been filing these motions in good faith.
He then incorporates the publicized information into his propaganda campaign to win the case in the court of public opinion.
For example, despite knowing that a police officer’s opinion regarding the defendant’s guilt or innocence is inadmissible at trial, he publicized Santiago’s deposition to support his propaganda claim that the Sanford Police Department believed the defendant killed Trayvon in self-defense.
Fortunately, BDLR quickly shut him down in court when he handed him Serino’s three or four drafts of the Capias request in which Serino considered charging the defendant with murder or manslaughter and ultimately settled on manslaughter.
I think it’s pretty clear that O’Mara was attempting to create and exploit a difference of opinion regarding the defendant’s innocence between the local SA and hometown police department versus the Jacksonville SA and the FDLE. I think he hoped to hijack and derail the jury inquiry into an are-you-going-to-trust-and-believe-your-hometown-law-enforcement-officials or the outsiders that the governor was forced to select for political reasons unrelated to what actually happened.
Notice that despite not mentioning race, that particular strategy is all about exploiting racism. The argument is little more than a transparent dress concealing a bloated and maggot infested corpse.
This is a good example of what lawyers mean when they refer to “playing the race card.”
I have to admit that I am fantasizing that there will come a day when O’Mara schedules a press conference and no one shows up.
