Home  »  Judiciary  »  Dershowitz Accuses Zimmerman Prosecutor Of Perjury In Affidavit


Apr 20, 2012 20 Comments ›› Infidel كافر

Excerpted from Breitbart News: With ABC News’ release of the George Zimmerman photo showing blood flowing freely from his head, the question becomes whether Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case, had access to the photo before charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph, or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head. Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.”

After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “grave ethical violation,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.”

Dershowitz continued, “An affidavit that willfully misstates undisputed evidence known to the prosecution is not only unethical but borders on perjury because an affiant swears to tell not only the truth, but the whole truth, and suppressing an important part of the whole truth is a lie.”

    We’ll see how that all pans out, but… In no, way, shape or form does the recently released picture of the accused’s head injuries show any indisputable evidence that the accused’s head was repeatedly and violently ‘bashed against a concrete surface’ because if it had there would surely be very visible open gashes/wounds, not merely the rather slight trickling of blood shown.

    Any reasonably intelligent individual has to question the location of the ‘alleged’ wounds, as they are not located in places that would most likely sustain injury from having one’s head struck against a concrete surface while lying down on the ground with someone ‘allegedly’ hovering over i.e. the surfaces protruding most from the skull etc.

    Additionally, where are the medical records, as surely if one’s head had been bashed so brutally/repeatedly against concrete a possible concussion would be of great concern to medical professionals, and how is it that such extreme head trauma/wounds have failed to leave any semblance of external tissue damage/scars (as can be clearly seen via the accused recent court appearance)?

    So far… Nothing about this ‘alleged’ photographic evidence appears to add up to the statements made by the accused, and the accused’s defense has some serious work ahead of them to prove their client’s case.

    Repeatedly pushing  a  person’s head into the ground, 

    with sufficient force to cause lacerations to the scalp 

    (with or without breaking their nose first)

    is certainly a legitimate justification for the use of defensive force by the victim.

    As someone mentioned earlier, where the fuck did you get your forensics degree? The school of biased opinion??

    He’s a libturd hiding behind the ‘retired USAF’ bullshit. He hasn’t fooled me one bit.

    …yeah – we’ll just ignore the paramedic’s report, eyewitness testimony, and police station surveillance photos clearly showing lacerations to the back of his head.

    Fucking idiot

    “and the accused’s defense has some serious work ahead of them to prove their client’s case.”

    Interesting concept you have stated here. Now the accused is guilty until their defense proves otherwise.
    In my travels through life, the State must prove guilt beyond any reasonable doubt. Just goes to show how the Lib’s have created a parallel universe that they occupy.

    Angela Corey … arrest her now! Justice for Zimmerman!

    I have a feeling our liberal activist prosecutors and judges are going the same way as our so called journalists. The majority of the journalists on the MSM do nothing but parrot DNC talking points and Obama suckups and it seems as if the liberal prosecutors and judges just tow the party line regardless of right or wrong or justice. I knew when I saw the race baiting circus going on in Florida that this poor man was going to be arrested and prosecuted even though the officers on the scene, with witness statements at the scene, saw fit to release him. I don’t know where all these so called prosecution witnesses came from but they were not at the scene with the original police report. Just a bunch of johnny-come-latelys to turn the tide to public pressure. So much for innocent until proven guilty. I also notice that this prosecutor did not issue any arrest warrants for the black panthers and Sharpton passing out reward posters for Mr Zimmerman. So I guess they only prosecute the crimes that fit their agenda.

    Angela Corey. I watched the press release she made when she announced the charges against Zimmerman. The evil clown bitch looked gleeful as she was speaking to the press. She appears to be the simi-female version of Mike Nifong of Duke lacross fame.
    It is really disgusting what this once great nation has become. For the first time in My adult life,I’m not proud to be an American.

  • Currahee101st

    Let me borrow your thick skull, bet I can change your opinion.

    Junior G man still spewing forth his fantasy, having  graduated from the school of forensic bull shit.
     

  • stodghie

    clearly this prosecutor has political hopes of elected office and thinks this is a way to get there. i believe that she made a serious mistake along with the one who appointed her. the truth shall set you free!

    get someone else in her position and let them look at all the evidence. hounding the police chief says to me that he wasn’t complying with the left agenda of using this for political ends. dershowitz would not speak out jmo if he didn’t feel this is a travesy of justice.

  • bpr1122

    very good.  We need to start a movement

  • bpr1122

    Dershowitz is radical liberal; if he is speaking out, it is really bad

  • bpr1122

    I sort of agree with you.  However, when you consider there was  a witness who saw  Zimmerman was getting beat up, that Zimmerman had a broken nose, that the cries for help was Zimmerman, the grass stains on the back of his shirt, etc.

    Also I know a person who was slammed to the ground and had their skull cracked.  In that case, there was no blood.

    If you listen to the tape you will hear Zimmerman complaining that Martin was running away.  When Zimmerman was told not to follow Martin, he calmly said OK.   What is the probability
    that Zimmerman would be able to run down a 17 year old athlete that had a huge head start?  I would say basically zero.

    So it very obvious that after the police that Zimmerman not to follow  Martin, Martin went after Zimmerman.

    The evidence I just present, which is from the police reports and the 911 tape, clearly shows self defense.

    However, you are missing the main point. Zimmerman is not being acussed of manslaughter, he is being accursed of murder.

    It doesn’t matter.

     She already had the police report of the officers report that whne they arrived on the scene, they found Zman bleeding from his face and a gash on the back of his head.

    And another eye witness said the same thing.

    This prosecutor withheld exculpatory evidence. She is another Mike Nifong

    These pictures are just icing on the disbarrment cake.

    The eywitness testimony on the police report refutes Mr DaHarder, who obvioulsy in misinformed

    His ebonics screename says it all. Da Harder he try da mo he make fool a his sef

     Where are the medical records – that’s a very good question.  At the bail hearing, Zimmerman’s attorney offered to provide them to the prosecution whose ‘exhaustive investigation’ apparently had never bothered to determine let alone document the full extent of Zimmerman’s injuries.  The investigator who testified was unaware that Zimmerman’s nose had been broken, even though the police refers to blood.
