Frank Meziere was a Dallas stockbroker living in Plano, Texas washing his mustang at a local carwash. He was approached by three black men. They forced him into his car and drove away. He was found murdered with TEN bullets in his head.
Yogamon is a black man whose mother drank and he is said to have a low IQ. Well that did not save him from the death penalty. He is the first inmate to be killed with one drug. Frank was 23 and Yogi as he was known was just 19. This is the kind of murder and crime that gives black people a bad name. No excuse for this bad behavior.

Here’s a comment I wrote that addresses this question:
my daughter and I were talking about this on yesterday. She was called for jury duty, she is a PT with a clinical doctorate, and once I was called for jury duty for a murder trial. I have a master’s degree.
It turns out that I knew the twins who were on trial for capital one murder. They had been my students and were classified as SPEDs. The lawyers had me sworn in and asked me questions for at least two hours. And as a lawyer in my last life I love to talk and talked away. They hung on my every word and then did not pick me nor my daughter (recently) for jury duty.
She said her defendant was a doctor and thought that it would be in his best interest if people like her were selected for his jury. She was a peer. I told her that she didn’t get it. The defense picks the jury and some jurors are swatted down or jettisoned after some talk. I was one of them.
The defense “DUMBS down” the jury. There I said it. That’s your headline: the jury is not one of peers but ones that suit the defense and the outcome they want “not guilty!”
Sure lots of circumstantial cases get the death penalty, esp. if they are black, illegals, brown Mexicans, or white men who kill their white wife and unborn child (Scott Peterson). There you have it. A jury of your dumbest peers is what our legal system is all about. It is not about a fair trial by a jury but about who gets picked to sit on one.
Perhaps we should abolish juries as they have served their purpose because, drumroll they can be FIXED. Juries are as shady as the people who sit for trials. In the Casey case they were dumb as dull knives in a drawer full of sharp scissors (liars).
If I had been on this jury I would have pointed out that since the prosecution or the laws were at fault and there was no crime on the books for what that lying broad did to her dead three year old…would have gone for the lowest of the major defenses at least one felony on her record would be nice, regardless to whether it fit. Then everybody would have been happy because she would have gotten another ten years and there would have been no need for appeal or by appeal time she would be released for time served, another seven to ten years.

One juror spoke today. It does not have to be a death penalty case stupid. My first impression: when I heard that it was murder one and death penalty I thought it was an overreach until I heard the case. Then I could see murder one, but not the death penalty. The jury did not have to impose death penalty and they should have known that. I think the jury was split anyway but could have at least come up with manslaugher…come on. So, it must be the prosecution’s fault.
The logic exhibited here is really lazy as a case in point. Why, because there are cases out there that were circumstantial that led to convictions. We know there was little evidence on the bones which indicates that she died a quiet death in her sleep. I think she was taking a nap when it happened. Did she just walk out the door and into the pool because Casey was not home and then drowned? It would still be a case of child abuse/manslaughter.
I hope Casey Anthony does not make money from her story. I for one ain’t buying whatever lies she’s selling. Are you?

Jeff Ashton is the man. He ate the expert’s lunch today. Ashton reminded the court that there is no trunk that will smell after food rotting or otherwise has been removed and the car cleaned. But if a dead body had once been in there there is NO getting the smell out. You would have to remove the rugs and repaint the interior. Casey abandonded the car. No freakin wonder.
Oh, boy the defense and its fricken expert bug witness got the clock cleaned and lunch eaten when the prosecution asked “did you ever wrap your pig (study) in a blanket?” Wow slam dunk…no backtracking on that.
The defense’s bug expert had only done an experiment with a pig decay in a trunk in Nebraska sans blanket, plastic bags or laundry bags and he sought to compare the two, perish the thought dude. Ashton gets the expert to confirm the timeline of 2 or 3 days in the trunk before moving on to the trash grave.
Ashton asked if there were studies of how bugs alight and get into decomposition done on child or anyone in Florida with its heat and humdity. No such studies and that was that. This cross exam by Jeff Ashton was masterful clear and simple. He ate his pig in a blanket lunch.
Day 16 wrap-up:
Here’s my first take on what’s going on today. Again it is fascinating to learn about bugs or entymology. In this case the “trash” is the body of a baby. For the Casey Anthony case and trial which continues even on Saturday, today, the prosecution continues to make its case for the body of Caylee Anthony had been in the trunk of the white spitfire Pontiac which Casey drove.
Neal Haskell is the bug expert testifying today and the defense brings out that this guy is paid for his testimony @ $400/hour and that does not include travel so about 23K for this job alone.
There are coffin flies and there are house flies. The coffin flies need unprocessed or raw meat to attract them, no brainer. They will come when there is a dead body or raw meat. They are more tenacious than houseflies and get into their target no matter what. This is what happened in the case of Casey those flies found their way onto the dead baby body that I think Casey put there.
Smoking Gun: if the prosecution can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the body of Caylee spent time in the trunk, and since body was not found in trunk, moved to its found location in the woods only less than a mile from the Anthony home we find Casey guilty of murder of Caylee. Casey needed time to think and do.
She (allegedly) killed her child with duct tape first chloroforming her asleep, duct tape goes around the face to ensure no breathing, she gets put into a bag, there is also a laundry bag there with some of the child’s items to make it look like she went away with some things. This is almost the way that Egyptians buried their dead with coffin goods. Way to go girl. If the prosecution can prove that
1) the body spent time in the trunk
2) was moved by person or persons
3) dumped in a second burial location
4) left in plain hiding view in the woods near the Anthony home
It means that a person premeditated the murder, planned where the body would or could go initially, spent time rewrapping the body, threw the body out into the woods like trash because it was stinking up the car and no other option presented itself…we got the smoking gun folks. I think the jury can then bring in a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree which in Florida is a capital crime. This is not auto death row but can lead to it. That would be the punishment phase. Will this judge sentence Casey to death if found guilty of 1st degree murder? Or will it be another judge?
Day 15 wrap-up:
An second forensic anthropologist, judge said he will only allow two expert witnesses, so they had a sidebar to decide that Warren could testify with a photograph or recreation of the duct tape with anatomical landmarks such as bottom of the teeth, osteometrics, base of the nose, edge of the orbits etc., are all used to determine where something was placed on skeletal remains. In this case, the jaw was articulated with the skull.
Warren testified that doing the animation made it possible to see where the duct tape was placed exactly. He came up with images that were scaled before superimposed. In other words, he made a DVD or a photo gallery with pictures that recreated where the duct tape would have been placed on Caylee before she died thus giving duct tape the distinction of murder weapon. The court saw the photos, TV or media did not. Judge Perry warned that if anyone in the court pulled out a camera it would be seized.
Animation was shown of Caylee to show that the duct tape could have covered both nose and mouth. If chloroform was used to sedate the child, then duct taped, then allowed to suffocate and put into a black plastic bag before or after death. Dr. G laid out that duct tape was the murder weapon by the prosecution made it official.
This afternoon forensic experts took the stand. Photos, per the judge’s request, were pixelated (the skull distorted) showing the site and the surrounding trash but not Caylee’s skull or bones. The medical examiner was in a photo grabbing the area around the skull that was no longer an articulated skeleton, meaning it had been there for a while. The duct tape still there over her nose and mouth.
Here’s photo gallery link from today: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/caylee-anthony/os-casey-anthony-trial-pictures,0,2221821.photogallery
A crying Casey has not looked at the monitor and she has cried for most of the today’s testimony. That does not mean her tears were for Caylee they could be for herself.
Gary Utz did the autopsy and both experts talked about the crime scene. Utz described the skull and its orbitals and how the jaw was attached to the skull due to the presence of hair and tape, but usually the two get separated. There was duct tape and the remains of the tape were shown. But as noted above the judge would not allow the pics published by media without pixelation. I think this was because it was a child and with the hair looked more gross. I do have a background in forensic anthropology and medicine and I know that normally just the sight of bones would not cause too much emotional discomfort but in this case it might be sensational.
The forensic doc pulled the tape away from Caylee skull and hair and the hair mat was seen. It was circled in the photo but I still could not make it out from the trash. There was also a black plastic bag was found and surprise–a cloth laundry bag. No soft tissue was found all skeleton.
Duct tape can be traced back to the source of who made it and if the same tape found in the home. It has its own fingerprint so to speak. And yes, it was the same tape found in the house. The same tape used by her dad George, neither grandparents in court today, to seal the top of a gas can because Casey kept running out of gas. Wonder why? All that running around avoiding her mom for months? Running around looking for “Zanny” the nanny?
Highlight of this morning trial: Casey’s brother Lee Anthony also took the stand again unraveling more lies from Casey. She told Lee that she met Zanny who was her nanny, and she met Zanny’s sister and children during that meeting GET THIS: she told Lee that Zanny held her down and told her that she was taking Caylee from her! The 911 meter reader call was played. The prosecution painted this guy as shady. But the “kidnapping” was done with the help of “Zanny’s” sister. Wow what a web of lies. Could a psychiatrist unravel this as a metaphor for what really happened? Did the waters of a pool or something spiraled out of her control? But it was over the top so she found it easier to cover up?
Another day of gavel-to-gavel coverage as the jury was shown the skull and bones of the baby Caylee Anthony. When shown to the jury with the duct tape highlighted Casey Anthony burst into tears. It was not the first time she showed emotion and that’s a good thing for her. But they have to prove that Casey murdered Caylee, now clear she was murdered. My thought why need duct tape for a person who drowns?
There have been baby killers who showed no emotion during the trial. So we still don’t know what happened. But if it was an accident turned bad as in coverup then she will not get the death penalty but found guilty of something lesser. The afternoon coverage is just starting. I forgot FL is one hour later than Central time and they are on lunch break. More after I watch the afternoon session (see update above). But that was the highlight of this morning.
Ken Starr accountant to everybody Jewish and otherwise is going to jail for his 30 million dollar Ponzi scheme. I mean white men can’t be greedy they gotta have all the fucking money. This is beyond criminal they need capital punishment too.
To top it off MSM did an interview with that sociopath and psychotic Bernie Madoff. Who gives a shit about the lies he is going to tell and exonerate himself and his jewish family? Then to top off the month Chicago ignores black candidates and elects a zionist Jew Rahm, who is an Israeli mossad. This country is unbelievable. And they still denigrate and destroy black people all the while handing over the banking reins to Jews including that nobama! What’s he trying to prove? That he’s not anti semitic?
