A telling moment during cross examination in the George Zimmerman trial, reveals more than skewed testimony and the witness’ lack of veracity. Coincidently uncovered is the sad state of America’s education system.
Witness Rachel Jeantel was forced to admit that she did not write a letter that she sent to Trayvon Martin’s mother describing what she allegedly heard on a phone call with him moments before he was shot. The revelation came when defense attorney Don West asked her to read the letter aloud in court.
“Are you able to read that at all?” West asked.
Jeantel, head bowed and eyes averted, whispered into the court microphone, “Some but not all. I don’t read cursive.”
The 19-year-old woman’s shocking admission sent a hush through the packed courtroom.
She was unable to read any of the letter except her own name, the date and the words “thank you.”
THIS is likely the reason why.
