Fox News Legal Pundit Johnathan Turley Makes False Comparison Between Trayvon Martin and Ahmaud Arbery, US News Revolution

CTH doesn’t do direct refutation unless the issues are very important.    Earlier today, immediately following the jury conviction of three men in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, a long-time Fox News legal analyst named Johnathan Turley made a claim of fact that must be refuted.  My apologies for the delay here.

During his appearance Professor Turley stated the difference between Ahmaud Arbery’s death and the death of Trayvon Martin was video evidence.

Turley compared the Arbery case to the Trayvon case by saying there were no eye-witnesses for either events, but the difference in the Arbery case there was video.

The explicit and intended implication was that if video evidence existed in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin there’s a possibility George Zimmerman would have been convicted, or in the words of Turley “there would have been a different outcome in that case.”   Everything about this claim by Turley is FALSE.

Turley’s viewpoint for the Arbery case discussion is not only wrong, it dangerously presents a possibility that is entirely fictitious.

THERE WAS a direct eye witness in the fight between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.  Direct eye witness Jonathan Good testified during the Zimmerman trial to witnessing the fight from his window in the condo unit next to the confrontation [LINK].  John Good testified in court to seeing Trayvon on top of Zimmerman and raining down blows MMA style, “ground and pound“, while Zimmerman was “shouting for help“, just before the fatal shot was fired.

John Good (pictured below right) originally gave the same statement to the police on the night of the incident and all of the forensic evidence supported the description of the events as told during Good’s statement and court appearance.  Mr. Good’s first hand eye-witness account, and all of the subsequent physical evidence in the case – which included recordings of 911 phone calls which documented the sound of the fight, was the primary reason why detectives in the case and the local district attorney in Orlando did not file charges against George Zimmerman after the shooting.

The media’s false reporting in the Zimmerman case was jaw-dropping, and all these years later – thanks to the fabrications by people like Johnathan Turley – most of the public still have no idea what factually took place in the encounter between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.

Perhaps Turley does not know about the police statements and direct courtroom testimony by eye-witness John Good because what he said did not match the false media narrative that was built in the aftermath.   The media ignored the evidence, and their complicit alignment with a prosecution narrative actually provided room for state special prosecutors Angela Corey and Bernie De La Rionda to carry out another egregious miscarriage of justice.  They completely fabricated a pro-prosecution witness named Rachel Jeantel {Go Deep}.

John Good was an inconvenient witness that destroyed the media narrative about the confrontation between Trayvon and Zimmerman; so the media ignored it.  Additionally, the officials in/around Sanford and Orlando Florida kept the spotlight away from John Good because there was a genuine worry that he would be targeted by the mob that was stirred up by the false racist narrative.

Essentially John Good was in hiding until he could give his first-hand eye witness account in court.  Those facts are likely why Professor Johnathan Turley doesn’t know about the eye witness; however, in the larger picture, what does that reality say about the media?

CTH came to the defense of George Zimmerman because we were defending the truth.  Not the manipulated truth, and not any version of any individual truth; but the literal and empirical truth that undermined the myriad of lies around the Zimmerman case.   The lies were so thick in the case against Zimmerman the state prosecution even believed it would be possible to successfully create witness #8 out of nothing and get away with it.

Witness #8, Rachel Jeantel appeared at the trial and gave testimony; unfortunately for the prosecution she could not answer most questions because she never saw, heard, or had anything to do with the events.   Jeantel was handed to the prosecution by the lawyers and family of Trayvon Martin.  Jeantel signed a statement for the prosecution that she did not write and couldn’t even read.

Jeantel was needed because lawyers for Trayvon Martin’s family claimed publicly a girl was on the phone with Trayvon when the encounter will Zimmerman took place.  Everything about that claim was a lie.  However, worse still, the state prosecution was willing to go along with the lie because the falsehood became the central point of their case.

As a consequence Rachel Jeantel was a completely made up witness by the Florida state prosecution in the highest profile legal case in the past decade…. And no one was ever held accountable for that.

Let that TRUTH sink in a while…
