George Zimmerman’s family has been kicked out of the Trayvon Martin trial.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the selection of the George Zimmerman jury was unusual in that all six members were non-black women.
The George Zimmerman trial will determine whether the death of Trayvon Martin is to be considered second-degree murder, manslaughter, or self defense. The highest charge requires that George Zimmerman “was filled with ill-will, hatred or spite.”
The judge of the George Zimmerman trial also determined the 911 audio testimony would not be allowed. The prosecution experts were claiming George Zimmerman was not the screamer and instead said it was Trayvon Martin. The defense experts, on the other hand, said that there was not enough audio to determine who was screaming. The George Zimmerman jury will essentially have to figure out for themselves who they think is screaming for help.
Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, gave a statement at the opening of the George Zimmerman trial:
“I’m here today as Trayvon Martin’s mom as I have been every day. I will be attending every day to get justice for my son. I ask that you pray for me and my family because I don’t want any other mother to have to experience what I am going through now.”
But Judge Debra Nelson ordered Zimmerman’s family to leave since they might be called as possible witnesses. Only Trayvon Martin’s parents were allowed to stay.
Unfortunately for George Zimmerman’s family, Florida law specifically says a victim’s family may watch a trial’s proceedings from within the courtroom, but the family of the accused receives no family rights to watch.
Do you think it’s fair that George Zimmerman’s family was kicked out of the Trayvon Martin trial?
