Where is Zimmerman's Mouthpiece Going With All This?

He's beating this "crappy ass cracker" comment to death.

Does he want us to infer that Trayvon hated white folks so much that he made Zimmerman murder him so he would mess up his life?

1. I know

If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, and he can't, then baffle them with a wide stream of bullshit. Won't work, but it's worth a try.

2. maybe planting the idea that the black kid, T. Martin, deserved death for daring to utter

 

a white racial slur. That argument could appeal to any racists sitting in the jury big time.

4. I thought that remark was extinct

But last I checked Trayvon isn't on trial.

6. how many whites are sitting on the jury?

 

Maybe he is trying to appeal to them, either hoping they are out right racists or more subtle racists. I don't know, maybe the defense lawyer is just grasping at straws too.

3. Defusing the "racism" charge, or trying to.

If he can convince the jury that Martin hated white people and jumped Zimmerman, that would be good for his case. And failing that, if it just turns into a "both sides are calling the other racist" fight, that may end up being a tie, which goes to the defendant.

5. He's trying to catch her in an inconsistency

 

Police do this all the time. Why do you think interrogation is often the same question over and over? It's to see if they can catch the witness in a misstatement, which is why you never talk to the police, rather let your lawyer do so.

This defense attorney is doing the same thing to show

1) That she isn't reliable and
2) For a dramatic "gotcha" moment

Emphasizing "creepy ass cracker" is an attempt to turn the white members of the jury against her.

7. he was a creepy ass cracker to martin

and martin was a fucking punk who always gets away with shit to zimmerman. unfortunately martin didn't have a gun, so it doesn't matter. his sttitude towards white people is not relevant, however, zimmerman's attitude towards black people is relevant. i understand what the attorney is trying to do, but i think he is failing miserably.
