The murder trial of George Zimmerman is underway, and testimony from 19-year-old Rachel Jeantel, a friend of Trayvon Martin, has ranged from awkward to humiliating to bizarre. A taste of what the star witness has said so far:
Defense attorney Don West asks Rachel Jeantel to read the letter. She tells him she can't. "I don't read cursive," she said.—

If Jeantel is the star witness, prosecution has lost. She doesn't understand simple questions, she IS RACIST, and she is incoherent.—

What did the jury think of her answer?
The "retarded" remark Jeantel used didn't sit well with the jury. Groans.—
