This is a transcript of one of Trayvon’s friend Rachel Jeantel’s depositions to the prosecutor. “Dee Dee” is her nickname. It pretty much speaks for itself. One thing to note is that she says “couldn’t” twice, so she wasn’t misspeaking before her story changed to “could” after the prosecutor slyly suggests to her to change it. He’s basically saying “We want to convict George so you need to say you COULD hear that it was Trayvon.”. He’s almost cleanly saying, “You COULD hear, riiiiiiiight?”

Excerpted from The Examiner: Do you admit that you were asked who was screaming for help and your answer was, ‘It could be Trayvon?’” West asked her.
“Yes,” Jeantel said. But the prosecution spoke up and said the record needed to reflect her entire answer recorded previously, which West then proceeded to read to the court. But the transcript read reflected that the witness was unsure if it was Trayvon’s voice or not screaming for help when she was deposed in the past, and her exact words were as follows:
“The dude sound kinda like Trayvon. Trayvon do got that soft voice and that baby voice sometimes. So it could be, I don’t know. You know it’s not.”
West asked her if she acknowledged that she made those comments during deposition and while under oath.
“Yes,” she said.
