Either the Prosecution in the George Zimmerman murder trial is working for the defense or they're just giving that appearance. After a poor start last week they brought the police detectives to the witness box on Monday. They also showed an extended video interview the police took with Zimmerman at the scene of the shooting of Trayvon Martin in which Zimmerman got to make his case.
Following the video former lead investigator for the Sanford Police, Christopher Serino testimony was most enlightening:
When asked at the end of the day by defense attorney Mark O'Mara about his suggestion to Zimmerman that there was a strong chance that there would be videotape of the incident, Serino said Zimmerman was happy about the possibility.Detective Serino used the possibility of a video to test Zimmerman's willingness to stand by his statements. The Detective was satisfied by Zimmerman's answer. The question is, will those who instantly made the false assumption that Zimmerman is a monster bent on lynching an innocent black youth allow this information to penetrate the fog of willful misinformation that surrounds this case?
"I believe his words were, 'thank god. I was hoping somebody would have videotaped it."
When asked by O'Mara what that response indicated to him, Serino said, "Either he was telling the truth or he was a complete pathological liar."
The defense followed up by asking Serino if pathological liar was taken off the table, did he think Zimmerman was telling the truth. Serino flatly replied, "Yes."
