Yes, it's from the Treehouse again, but these guys are amazing.
Update #11 – Trayvon Martin Shooting – Final Deconstruction of Benjamin Crumps Media Evidence
....As an outcome of a specific and intentional media strategy, when faced with the reality of there being no substantive evidence to dispute George Zimmerman’s framing of events, the case against Zimmerman did not warrant an arrest.
“The best evidence we have is the testimony of George Zimmerman, and he says the decedent was the primary aggressor in the whole event,” – Sanford Detective Serino told the Sentinel March 16.
“Everything I have is adding up to what he says.””
Indeed, even to this day there is not one cintilla of evidence ever presented after March 5th from any of the investigative teams including: the Sanford Police Department, Seminole County sheriffs office, Sanford District Attorney’s office and investigation unit, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey and her 65 person investigative team, the Federal Department of Justice or the FBI, that adds one factual evidentiary item toward changing the position held by the investigators office March 16th.
Three weeks ago, on Monday April 2nd, during an exclusive interview with the Sentinel, Police Chief Lee disclosed certain details of the investigation and during that session, attended by Detective Serino and others, Serino said his investigation turned up no reliable evidence that cast doubt on Zimmerman’s account – that he had acted in self-defense.
Understand how important this is. Not one factual investigative piece of evidence has been added to the prosecution case since March 5th. Not one. Yet Zimmerman is in jail today, and was not on March 6th.
The reason is “Media Evidence.”
Media Evidence is a strategic use of information presented by the legal team, in this case Parks and Crump, and used to specifically and intentionally sway public opinion. If you can build the public opinion strong enough, it can change the action of the politically dependent class of prosecutors in your favor.
When factual evidence does not support your demand for an arrest. A specific intentional strategy is to create media evidence. Media evidence need not be real, it merely needs to appear to be real. The goal is to change opinion, and subsequently force an action the opposing party would otherwise not have taken.
Such is the action of arresting George Zimmerman.
The media evidence was created by Trayvon Family Attorney Benjamin Crump. He delivered the framing for the evidence during his strategic press conference on Tuesday March 20th. Following the private 911 recorded screenings in Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett’s office on March 16th.
Where did he get the ideas?
….. From his mentor – Al Sharpton
The strategy was formulated, and the media evidence with accompanying narrative was constructed during the time period after that meeting in the Mayors office, and prior to the Press Conference where Crump would sell it. (Created March 16, 17, 18, 19, and delivered to media March 20th.)
The media evidence which formulated their forward strategy consisted of:
- Release of all the 911 call tapes from both George Zimmerman and the witnesses (including the scream tape). From the mayor to the Trayvon Family Attorneys.
- Creation of Sybrina Fulton claiming the screams on the call were from Trayvon. Which directly contradicted Tracy Martin’s saying they were NOT Trayvon on Tuesday 2/28 at Sanford Police Dept with Detective Serino.
- Discovery/Creation of Trayvon’s on-line T-Mobile phone records Sunday 3/18 by Tracy Martin.
- Discovery/Creation of Trayvon’s girlfriend DeeDee and a series of phone calls leading up to his shooting evidenced within the phone records.
- Discovery/Creation that DeeDee and Trayvon were on the phone for 6 hours and 40 minutes on 2/26 the date he was shot. (400 minutes)
- Discovery/Creation of DeeDee actually hearing the confrontation between Trayvon and Zimmerman on the phone.
- Discovery/Creation of DeeDee actually being in the hospital so distraught with grief she could not attend funeral services on 3/2 and 3/3.
- Discovery/Creation of Chad Green (Brandy’s 14-year-old son) being home with Trayvon waiting for his bag of Skittles from 7-11.
- Discovery/Creation of Tracy Martin and Brandy Green returning home at 10:30pm on the night Trayvon was shot.
- Creation that George Zimmerman was a 247 lb man of massive scale.
- They later created media evidence that Zimmerman was not injured with the help of ABC News; And that George Zimmerman was not medically treated at the scene and the 2nd ambulance was cancelled by dispatch.
These points to support their demand for arrest were strategically formulated.
We have methodically deconstructed each of these false premises and lies, yes lies, in the following posts:
Update #9 (The entire construct of a real narrative outline of events)
Update #10 part 1 (Known factual evidence and timelines)
Update #10 part 2 (specifically 80% of Crumps DeeDee aspects)
Today we take out the remaining 20% of falsehoods surrounding DeeDee. Specifically her ACTUAL knowledge from the phone calls on the night in question.
The final piece of the puzzle was dropped unexpectedly during Friday’s Bond Hearing with the absolute brilliance of defense attorney Mark O’Mara catching Team Skittles off guard.
How did he deconstruct the DeeDee narrative when you never even heard him use her name?
O’Mara called to the stand Dale Gilbreath, one of the lead investigators who had signed the affidavit for probable cause swearing to its content. Mr. Gilbreath acknowledged that there was no evidence to indicate who started a fight that happened after Zimmerman got out of his car and, at one point, ran after Trayvon.
O’Mara - “Do you know who started the fight?”
Gilbreath – “Do I know? No”
O’Mara – “Do you have any evidence that supports who may have started the fight?”
Gilbreath – “No.”
O’Mara - “Do you have any evidence, any evidence at all, any witnesses, any statements, anything that would contradict Mr. Zimmerman’s assertion?
Gilbreath - Err, no. Well, do I know who punched first? No.
That little bit of testimony destroys the remaining 20% DeeDee audio-witness narrative created and sold by Benjamin Crump to a willful media. Remember the first few paragraphs of the Probable Cause Affidavit.
So there is no evidence to contradict Zimmerman’s account of “who punched first” or who “started” the fight within the sworn statements etc.
Well then, where does that leave this constructed evidence?
The DeeDee as an audio witness was a specific outcome from a conversation detailed above with ABC News (exclusive of course) and Benjamin Crump. It was contrived evidence. CONTRIVED MEDIA EVIDENCE.
Did DeeDee talk to Trayvon that night. Yes. What were the specifics of the conversation? If you listen to the first part of the video before Matt Gutman cuts in the narration you can tell exactly what the totality of the real, substantive, and truthful, March 19th conversation was:
“He said this man was watching him, so he put his hoodie on“. – DeeDee 3/19/12
That’s about it right there. That’s the whole thing. That’s all she knew.
Why so sure? Well firstly, Gilbreath just confirmed it; He said there’s nothing more specifically known evidence to establish how “the fight started” that would contradict George Zimmerman.
So lets look at the Probable Cause Affidavit for DeeDee’s part.
Yup, she’s just confirming Martin was scared and being followed. Zimmerman has never disputed he followed Trayvon from day one. He and his attorney admit it. He followed Trayvon to keep an eye on him while police were in route. That is not provoking, that is not confrontational, that is prudent. That’s what good neighbors do, “watch.”
Done. There. That’s the final 20% of DeeDee’s prosecutorial value wiped out. Every single false media construct from Benjamin Parks is now debunked. All of them.
And while we are at it, lets just throw another one in for Good Measure. Remember those “mysteriously appearing” cell phone records from Trayvon Martin that Dad Tracy found. That kinda kicked off that whole ”Trayvon was on the phone while being chased thing”, you know the kinda important thing for their entire, like, case.?
Benjamin Crump loaded a PDF file to share with the media (available here)
We hate to be all Captain Obvious and stuff but did anyone at ABC think to notice the timestamps on the call logs were in Pacific Time Zones.? One of our Treeper Peeps “Deborah Cutchins” sure did.
