Lies And The Lying Lawyer Who Tells Them

Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton the parents of Trayvon Martin, are extremely fortunate that George Zimmerman picked the highly incompetent lawyer, Craig Sonner, to be his attorney.

With the release of the police surveillance video by ABC News that clearly shows an unmarked, unbruised, and un-bloodied Zimmerman, Sonner, once again clearly uncomfortable on a TV interview, at least twice describes the video as “grainy”. The term grainy typically refers to video or film footage that was either shot in very poor lighting or the poor quality of the footage due to the age of the film or the video tape. Neither is the case here. By necessity, both the outside and inside of the police station are brightly lit. I’m not at the Sanford Police station but I would guess they’re using a digital video system. If they did to a transfer to tape, the cassette would be brand new since every recording of a prisoner being brought in and booked would have to be saved as evidence.

Sonner also said that one of the cops looked at the back of Zimmerman’s head. His implication is that the cop was examining the damage. Look closely at the video. There are two cops with Zimmerman next to the patrol car. As he’s being searched and frisked, neither cop ever looks at the back of Zimmerman’s head. They’re both taller than him and they don’t even peek at the top of his head. A third cop walks into the frame and opens the station door for the other two cops to walk Zimmerman inside. The two cops walk Zimmerman to the door and the one behind him is looking down at the ground. Once inside, none of the three cops look at Zimmerman’s head at all. In fact, it looks like a three were making a conscious effort to not really look at him at all. Near the end of the video, the cop behind him quickly looks away to the side as Zimmerman walks out of frame.

If there’s one thing worse than a lying lawyer, it’s a blatantly lying lawyer.
