As the George Zimmerman trial continues, opinions are becoming more polarized and nuanced. Last night, Martin family co-counsel Natalie Jackson weighed in on the inconsistencies in George Zimmerman’s recorded testimony, in the process surmising what it may mean for the prosecution’s case.
“The biggest ... piece of evidence against George Zimmerman is his own words,” Jackson argued.
While a recording of a conversation with the dispatch officer on the night of Trayvon Martin's death revealed that Zimmerman got out of his car to follow 17-year-old, Jackson cited a critical contradiction that appeared in testimony he later shared with the detectives investigating the case:
“He told Detective [Doris] Singleton and Detective [Chris] Serino that he got out of his car to look for an address. That's very inconsistent and that's very self-serving. And I think that goes to who confronted, who was the aggressor.”
Thus far, several similar inconsistencies have appeared peppered in throughout this case, as witnesses are called upon to recount a murder which occurred more than 18 months ago.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer joined “Piers Morgan Live” to remember the 19 elite firefighters that lost their lives fighting the Yarnell Hill fire Sunday.
“We've had a terrible, terrible tragic day in Arizona,” said the governor.
Details about how the young men of the Granite Mountain Hotshots found themselves unable to escape the flames are still unclear, Brewer explained:
“There's going to be an intense investigation taking place. But we assumed that the fire burned up, and then because of the thunderstorms and the wind, it turned on them, and then there was no way for them to leave the area in which they were in," she told the host. "In other words, there exit area was now on fire, so there was nowhere for them to go, so they sheltered down, putting the shelter over them, and holding it down with their hands and feet and hoping that the fire would blow across them, and it did not. It was not successful at this time.”
At the conclusion of Monday's program, “Piers Morgan Live” honored the courage and legacy of men who sacrificed their lives while battling a blaze in the name of providing the safety of the community in the Yarnell Hill fire.
