Below is a statement from Ben Crump, who represents the family of Trayvon Martin, regarding the release of evidence by defense attorneys on Thursday.

"The only photos or videos that are relevant or admissible at trial are those of Trayvon taken the day he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.   There is no evidence that Trayvon neither had gold teeth nor gave anybody the finger the night he was shot and killed.  Therefore those pictures are irrelevant and will not be admitted into evidence. 

 

Is the defense trying to prove Trayvon deserved to be killed by George Zimmerman because the way he looked?  If so, this stereotypical and closed-minded thinking is the same mindset that caused George Zimmerman to get out of his car and pursue Trayvon, an unarmed kid who he didn’t know.  The pre-trial release of these irrelevant red herrings is a desperate and pathetic attempt by the defense to pollute and sway the jury pool.

 

The evidence that will be admitted at trial is the legally documented history of George Zimmerman’s propensity for violence, such as his arrest for battery on a law enforcement officer, his injunction to prevent domestic violence taken out by his ex-girlfriend, and evidence of his training as a bouncer for Data Whore Productions, Inc."
