Watch: Prosecution In Trayvon Martin Case Uses Martin’s Racist Comments To Benefit Case Against Zimmerman
June 26, 2013 by Sam Rolley
During a mumbling testimony in the George Zimmerman trial, prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel, 19, who claims to have been on the phone with Trayvon Martin moments before he was shot, said Martin told her a “creepy ass cracker” was following him before his fatal encounter with Zimmerman.
Jeantel also claimed that Martin’s remarks made her think that Zimmerman was a rapist and said Trayvon then informed her that the “nigger is now following” him.
Jeantel is a star witness for the prosecution, as her version of events portrays Zimmerman as the aggressor in the case.
“That a man just kept watching him,” she replied.
Following an objection from Zimmerman’s attorney, the prosecutor prodded, “Did you say anything back to him or did he say anything back to you?”
“Yes,” Jeantel answered. “I asked him how the man looked like. He just told me the man — the man looked creepy.”
“He said the man looked creepy?” the prosecutor asked.
“Creepy, white, kill-my-neighbors cracker,” Jeantel replied, adding after the court complained that her mumbling was making her testimony inaudible, “He looked like a creepy ass cracker.”
“He told me the man was looking at him,” she added, “so I had to think it might have been a rapist. Might have been a rapist.”
