@Paul Hue @curiositymakesasmartcat That timeline is off by two minutes. The police apparently don't know how to read their own dispatch logs. Zim's call came just after 19:09, not 19:11.

OT, but since we discussed it here at one point: Dharun Ravi was just sentenced: 30 days jail, 3 years probation, about $11,000 fines + community service. Seems eminently fair to me.
@rrrrottenapples @snapsbacula OK, thanks.
@rrrrottenapples @snapsbacula I wonder if it is legit, though. Is it really a leaked copy of clubhouse video? Hm...
Has anyone seen this: http://www.vidsy-vids.com/watch.php
I can't make this web site respond at all when I click on anything, but then again, I've been having browser issues. *sigh*
@VickisSmith @Redbrow "how many people could go through such severe trauma- then adamantly want to return to work the morning after?" -- People who really need their job and the money. People (like me) who do better during an emotionally stressful time if their mind is occupied with other things--like work.
1 year ago on The Missing 2:30 & DeeDee's Testimony
@AghastinFL @Andybinga I'm glad he brought up the points about how the voice can change under stress.
@stobberdobber Stobber, one small caution about the axiom site. I listened to some of the audio that they posted from the discovery release, and DeeDee's statement has been edited to omit the section where she said Martin was right by "his father's house". So I would not rely on anything they post.
@Andybinga At least they talked to the FBI guy who made a lot of sense in what he was saying.
@ing4life @MaggieMoo Better yet, since you put such stock in police documents, look at his intake sheet from April: 185 pounds.
@ing4life @MaggieMoo Dude, that was from 7 years ago. Look at the video from February. Of this year. You're clearly wrong.
@ing4life @MaggieMoo "Zimmerman was 5'10 and 250 pounds." -- Bullshit. Numerous people, including the police, have listed his height at either 5'8" and you can see in the police video from the night of the shooting that the 185 is believable.
@ing4life Zimmerman is listed on the jail intake sheet as 5'8" and 185 pounds.
@ing4life A CDC study notes that an average of 5800 people die each year from assault-caused traumatic brain injuries. So concrete sidewalk+head smashing=very real fear of serious injury.
@ing4life "T-Mart was 5-11 and 150 according to the autopsy report" -- 158 pounds. Minor, but I thought I'd point it out.
@gmac124 @Terry " I was mainly trying to point out that the prosecution's case is weak" -- Agreed. No argument from me there.
@gmac124 (Just checking in for a moment) "the prosecution built there case on DeeDee and the 2 people running towards the T before the confrontation" -- I posted this way downthread somewhere:
Also, if the state intends to rely on her testimony as well as the "I saw two shadows running" witness as the basis for their 2nd degree murder case, then they have a problem because according to DeeDee's statement, Martin refused to run even though Zimmerman was close to him. So DeeDee=no running, witness w/o her contacts in=running. Gonna have to pick on or the other.
Don't know if this was mentioned or not, but there's something to pursue in DeeDee's recorded statement. Around 9:00 minutes in, just after she says that Martin is "near his daddy's house", she says "he starts walking back". I swear she said "back", but the attorney says "so he started walking fast?" Now, her diction and grammar are atrocious, and she is easily suggested and led by the attorney--twice she asks him what he wants her to say. But if she said "back" and actually meant "back", that changes things a bit, doesn't it?
I'll try to listen again later, but it probably won't be until tonight (have funeral and attorneys of my own to deal with today)
Eh, blog post tomorrow about all this if I don't get too burned out today.
@RickyJimenez Lord, that girl needs to learn to enunciate. Sounds like she's got a mouth full of marbles.
@realitycheck Hah. you just beat me to it. :)
