So EC, the "new evidence" in the Zimmerman case, is your speculation that the school records that the defense has may have been tampered with? So far, no sign that O'Mara and West think so.
Have you actually read the FOIA-released documents? Or are you
just "speculating" there's nothing relevant to the Zimmerman case in them?
The sworn statements made as part of the Internal Affairs investigation launched by Chief Hurley make it clear that the documents on Trayvon Martin that were given by M-DSPD to Sgt. Randy Smith of the Sanford Police Dept. had been written in such a manner that an upper-level figure* looked at the files on his computer, responded "Oh, God... Oh, no... Oh, God..." and on the spot
ordered Commander Fox-Williams to tell the men under her to from that point on write all incident reports "as is," countermanding Chief Hurley's directive.
(And when she told them, one of them responded "Oh, so now
they want them written 'as is'?")
This isn't "speculation", it's what was stated under oath by the M-DSPD staff under investigation as a result of Robles' article.
The statements make it clear that M-DSPD policies at the time caused Trayvon's records that were given to Sgt. Randy Smith to have been written in some way so that they did not describe the incident(s) "as is".
If the school records Smith received downgraded or omitted Trayvon's offenses, this could potentially have biased Smith's opinion of whether George "wrongly profiled" Trayvon and whether he was entitled to "stand your ground" protection from being charged.
And IIRC, Smith was the dissenter when the estimation was made that SPD didn't have the evidence to charge George, and IIRC, he was one of the ones who pressed Serino to write a capias charging George.
While the testimony that's been released doesn't spell out the content of Trayvon's records, it's clear things weren't being fully reported; there was testimony involving the school officer** in the "graffiti" incident and the way he dealt with the jewelry in Trayvon's backpack, including officers in charge of the M-DSPD property room being called to testify.
It's also not known what was in the file that triggered the "Oh, God" response, but it was enough to result in an immediate countermanding of Hurley's policy.
It could've been either something concerning the marijuana or the jewelry-- since those things had been mentioned by Robles-- or it could have been something attached in some way that was not part of the official report (thus the order to write reports of incidents "as is"). If the latter is true, the "something attached" could have been related to "the tweet we can't discuss".
And yes, this last part IS just "speculation".
* (not sure I can say here who this was, since his own sworn statement hasn't yet been released under FOIA)
** (same applies here, since his sworn statement also hasn't yet been released under FOIA)
