1. Saw some of that

and my take-away is that the prosecution had a gem of a witness but did not know it- OR - they ignored it. They left her out to hang when they should have been questioning her in a way that would reveal her perspective. She could have taught the jury what it is like to be black in America, that kids are taught to be on the lookout for sexual predators. Instead, the prosecution allowed her to be characterized in the most unflattering light such that she was diminished as a witness. Both sides took away her ability to speak for Trayvon.

Prosecution is talking big today but they are inept at best or crooked.

2. They never even attempted to relate to Rachel. This is sad. They could have questioned her

beforehand.

They did such a shitty job with their witnesses. At the very least, they were lazy and negligent. At worst, they deliberately sabotaged their own case.

4. They threw it. There is no other explanation

2 legal analysts on CNN also said that there is no other explanation for the sheer incompetence. One of them said their clerks could put on a better case.

The prosecution was fucking pathetic. It had to be on purpose.

6. i thought she was a great witness even though

she's young and obviously didn't want to be there. i felt she was truthful. too bad their phone conversation was not recorded.

3. She was a very different person from the one we saw on the witness stand.

She obviously has no love for Don West!
