This week launched the start of the George Zimmerman trial over the murder of Trayvon Martin. The prosecution arguing that ‘Georgia Zimmerman’ was fed up with “punks” getting away with crime and shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin “because he wanted to,” not because he had to. The defense is arguing that the killing was self-defense against a young man who was slamming Zimmerman’s head against the pavement.
As the details unfold there were talks of a “star witness” taking the said for the prosecution. Well…yesterday she did.
“Rachel Jeantel, the 19-year-old woman who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin just moments before he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, offered up emotional testimony on Wednesday. Jeantel is one of the most important witnesses for the prosecution, as she was the last person to speak with the teen before his death on Feb. 26, 2012. This in mind, reports that her Twitter account was sanitized leading up to her courtroom appearance are certainly intriguing — and worth exploring.”
This morning on radio (in one of the most hilarious segments in Glenn Beck radio history) Glenn explains why Jeantel’s social media habits may be more harmful than helpful for the prosecution.
