Who is Rachel Jeantel?

The prosecution’s star witness has become a national sensation, but none of that attention is especially welcome. 360’s Randi Kaye has the story.

    If Trevon was on top of Zimmerman, how come he did not feel the gun and how did Zimmernan manage to pull that gun out without trevon noticing it? Someone ask that murderer to demonstrate because I still don't know he pulled it off.

    ONE FACT makes all this nonsense about who was punching who totally moot: A kid/young man was being followed at night by a grown man who was a stranger – who had been told by the police not to follow the kid. Trayvon Martin was not out walking around just hoping & waiting for someone of another color to follow him so that he could attack him. IF, IF, IF Trayvon Martin was seen striking Zimmerman then he was doing EXACTLY what we tell kids to do if being followed or approached by a stranger – fight! I have a 16 year old nephew and he has been taught since he was a toddler that he should never ever go with a stranger and should fight, yell and do whatever he needed to do to protect himself.
    Bottom line: if George Zimmerman had done what he was told to do by the authorities, and stopped following this kid, none of this would have happened. Case closed. He deserves to have a fair trial for sure. Then hopefully he will sit in jail and think about this the rest of his life.

    I taught in a Juvenile Detention Facility here in Florida until 2009, and was shocked that many of the kids could not read cursive because of using computers and texting. This included all levels of achievement. It did not indicate anything about their intellect. I guess the schools do not emphasize writing in cursive anymore.

      Yeah, but she, ostensibly, wrote the letter.
