A greater truth emerges from Zimmerman trial: state's star witness appears to be an angry, immature, functionally illiterate, racist?

Another disturbing truth has emerged from the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin case …

The court appearance and cross-examination of the 19-year-old witness who was the last person to speak to Trayvon Martin has apparently revealed a societal truth. At times, her depositions and testimony point to several untruths and the inescapable conclusion that her version of the events may have been colored by her own prejudices and perceptions.

  • The prosecution’s star witness is a functional illiterate, unable to read.

In a painfully embarrassing moment, Jeantel was forced to admit that she did not write a letter that was sent to Martin's mother describing what she allegedly heard on a phone call with Martin moments before he was shot. It came when West asked her to read the letter aloud in court.

"Are you able to read that at all?" West asked.

Jeantel, head bowed, eyes averted whispered into the court microphone, "Some but not all. I don't read cursive."

It sent a hush through the packed courtroom.

She was unable to read any of the letter save for her name, date and the words "thank you." <Source>

  • The prosecution’s star witness appears to be angry …

The combative exchange was part of her nearly seven hours of testimony over two days. She started the day appearing subdued. Her demeanor was so different from the hostile tone she had towards Zimmerman's lawyer on Wednesday that West asked Jeantel, "You seem so different from yesterday. I'm just checking, did someone talk to last night about your demeanor in court?" <Source>

  • The prosecution’s star witness appears to be a racist …

She is seen as a critical witness to the prosecution because she is the only person able to say that Martin claimed that he noticed a strange man following him and that he was scared. Jeantel said Martin described the stranger as a "creepy ass cracker."

Jeantel, a key prosecution witness in the racially charged trial, testified that she was talking on the phone with Martin when he told her a "creepy ass cracker" was following him. She told defense lawyer Don West that "cracker" is how she referred to white people in her community. <Source>

  • The prosecution’s star witness appears to have a history with partying, drug and alcohol use …

In a late-night scrubbing spree, dozens of embarrassing and incriminating posts were deleted Tuesday evening from the Twitter account of a Florida woman who has been described as a star government witness in the George Zimmerman murder case, The Smoking Gun has learned.

As TSG reported yesterday, Jeantel, pictured above, maintains a Twitter account (@MsRachel_94) to which she has made more than 200 posts over the past five months. Many of the teenager’s tweets referred to drinking, smoking, and getting high. She also made references to Martin’s death, referred to acquaintances as “bitch” and “nigga,” and wrote about having “jackass lawyers on my ass.” <Source>



Had this language been used by a white person, the progressives in the media would be lining up to declare this person a lying, untrustworthy racist. Hypocritical of the media, to say the least.

Bottom line …

But more disturbing is how an individual managed to get through the school system as a functional illiterate without learning to read, write, and using appropriate English? What is the future for someone who has been clearly disadvantaged by the system and certainly not an individual who will be able to compete in the job market? Is this the face of another young woman destined to hook up with multiple irresponsible men who father numerous babies and fail to support the mother and the children?

Is this another example of the progressive multi-cultural double standard when it comes to dumbing down the societal expectations of minorities and then re-jiggering achievement tests to avoid excoriating the unionized teachers for doing an abysmal job?

Here is a “witness” whose testimony can produce life-altering consequences for George Zimmerman, based on little more that her impressions and characterizations of what Trayvon Martin allegedly told her on the night he died. It will be up to the jury of six women (one black) to decide if she is a credible witness whose testimony is so accurate and compelling as to place George Zimmerman’s future at risk.

This trial will end. And justice will hopefully prevail. But, that is not guaranteed as the progressives have invested a great deal of time and effort making this a case about racial profiling. Ironically, not only did the initial outrage of white-on-black gun violence dissipate when it was determined that Zimmerman is Hispanic; but that the true racists may be Trayvon Martin and Jeantel as they racially characterize and profile the white community.

But, in the final analysis, who is going to hold the teachers and their corrupt unions responsible for this tragedy – allowing a child to go through school without getting an education? Producing yet another decade of functional illiterates who will most likely be employed by the government, become public employee union members, and then inflict their ignorance and prejudices on “We the People?”

It appears to me that Trayvon Martin and his gangsta persona may have brought about his own death. But, it also appears to me that a great disservice has been done to our children, our communities, our states, and our nation – with the taxpayer footing the bill for the continuing corruption between the public employee unions and the school systems who purport to educate our children.

Perhaps it is time to stop engaging in political correctness, multi-culturalism, and more equivalency – and demand results of our teachers, administrators, and politicians. Perhaps it is time to eliminate the revisionist history, political activism, and condom lessons from the classroom and return to the basics of reading, writing, arithmetic, critical thinking, and civics. Realizing that not everyone can or wants to pursue an academic career and providing a vocational track with no societal prejudices for those who choose this alternative path. Perhaps it is time to throw public employee unions out the door and revamp the decaying civil service system. And, at least as school is concerned, no more tolerance for strange names, dress, or Ebonics-like language. We cannot allow the gangsta  hip-hop culture to continue erode our cultural sensibilities.

But, more importantly, someone needs to stage an educational intervention on Jeantel to insure she learns how to read and does not become just another cog in the social services wheel. Perhaps, Jeantel provides us with a portrait of a young person who is even more tragic than Trayvon Martin.
