No doubt that when CNN aired a picture of a police report showing George Zimmerman’s home address and Social Security number on live TV a few people with DVRs may have hit rewind so they could jot down the information. It appears that this problem was caused by the court, but still, it seems CNN is the only news outlet to air it.
Sanford police detective Doris Singleton was in the midst of testifying about her interview with Zimmerman following his detention when the prosecuting lawyer pulled up a copy of the “narrative report” for the court to view. The court video feed then showed, in close-up, as the lawyer zoomed in on Zimmerman’s personal information. …
As the information continues to be shown before the court (but no longer on CNN), Zimmerman can be seen muttering to his counsel, possibly in regards to the confidential numbers now available to all in the room.
“Get that down, get that down,” an unnamed person in the court can be heard telling the lawyer.
“Oh my god,” the prosecuting lawyer exclaimed. “How can I clear it?” he asked before removing it from the in-court screen.
CNN said that it’s routine for court clerks to redact personal information, which wasn’t done in this case.
Earlier today I was thinking that if Zimmerman is acquitted he’s going to need a bodyguard once the race-baiting agitators do their thing. Now he’s really going to need one.
