Media take on police-like role in Trayvon Martin case by analyzing 911 calls, enhancing video
MIAMI — The news media are taking on an increasingly police-like role in the Trayvon Martin slaying by using modern forensic techniques to analyze evidence, an approach some legal experts say can lead to a distorted view of the case because a lot of the key evidence is still under wraps.

The public has been whipsawed back and forth as new revelations emerge, appearing to support one version or the other.

Most recently, the Orlando Sentinel had a voice analysis expert examine a 911 call in which a person is heard screaming for help before the fatal gunshot. The shooter, neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, told police he was yelling, but the expert told the newspaper the voice most likely was not Zimmerman.

“It would be nice to know who was doing the calling for help, but identifying the caller is not necessarily going to definitively identify the wrongdoer,” said University of Florida law professor Bob Dekle, a former state prosecutor and public defender. “Situations sometimes arise where it is the wrongdoer calling for help.”

ABC News on Monday aired what it said was an enhanced version of a police video taken the night of the shooting that appeared to show wounds or welts on the back of Zimmerman’s head. The initial, grainier video aired last week seemed to show no wounds or blood, which led Martin’s family and supporters to proclaim that it undercut Zimmerman’s story.

Ironic since there's this out now...

Critics say the "Today" show attempted to incite racial anger when it cut crucial seconds from audio of a phone call placed by George Zimmerman just before he killed the teenager.

NBC News is being excoriated in some circles – with competitor Fox News Channel leading the charge – for selectively editing audio of the 911 call placed by George Zimmerman just before he killed Trayvon Martin.

Hey media. You're suppose to report the news. Not make up evidence to sway people from truth into a fake reality. No wonder you're losing viewers.

It is amazing how youtube and Twitter are now more informative than the media is, not to mention godlikeproductions...





I am truly heartened by the woman in the video above, who mentions Toronto4Trayvon, a twitter account that promotes a grassroots campaign to obtain justice.

God bless those who thirst for justice, and all the people who are keeping the lights on for Trayvon.
