Crimesolvers: Internet Super Sleuths

Updated on December 26, 2012

Internet detectives are on the case

Source

I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I spend 3 to 4 hours a day blogging and commenting on Internet articles. While I read articles and comments related to the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case, I evolved into a super sleuth as I engaged in discussions and analyses of well known and little known facts of the case. The little known facts come about because of the Freedom of Information Act and the relentless efforts of private investigators to search out every detail of the case.


What is a Super Sleuth?

A sleuth is an investigator or bloodhound. It stands to reason that a super sleuth would be aninvestigator or bloodhound on steroids. Online presentation of their findings are availble for public viewing and often save private investigation expense for litigants in a legal proceeding.

From mainstream media to blogs

For several months I followed articles published by mainstream media and editorial sites like Huffington Post. As I read comments on Huffington Post, commenters would make reference to Frederick Leatherman’s blog or LLMPapa. I went to frederickleatherman.com and entered a whole new world of discussion. Comments, though sometimes humorous and maybe a little tacky, are made by professional people. Many of them are in the legal area in some capacity. Many of them have technology expertise. Many of them are professional people who offer reflective comments which add dimension to opinions and comments made by legal professionals and video reconstruction produced by technology experts.

A pictue is worth a thousand words and multiple theories

Zimmerman at the T

Special interest takes

From observation of comments, it appears that people are gravitated to a blog that includes others who share their views. Such groupings lead to polarization by political party, philosophy on race relations, NRA affiliation, etc. On blogs that support the theory that Trayvon Martin was murdered, there is ethnic diversity. I did not find such diversity among those that support the theory that Trayvon Martin was a thug who almost killed George Zimmerman.

I included sources that included intelligent discussion of issues rather than innocuous indictments and frivolous nonsense.

Will comments of super sleuths impact proceedings

Absolutely! Michael O’Mara has two interns whose sole task is to keep track of what’s on the blogs. (Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/08/04/2933157_p4/the-trayvon-martin-truth-squad.html#storylink=cpy)

George Zimmerman has been ordered to stay offline. It is possible that the FBI and state prosecutor are trolling to see if there is activity from George Zimmerman. It is rumored that George and his brother, Robert, are attacking and counter-attacking on Huffington Post. If that is the case, are the FBI and prosecutors watching. If comments on blogs are of interest to Michael O’Mara, they must certainly be of interest to the prosecutor. All comments and theories will be carefully parsed to determine validity and consideration. Is it any wonder that the Internet is providing fodder for the court battle to come?

This Hub is a work in progress!

      Very interesting. Very good case to look for the illusive "smoking gun".

      Watch this become more interesting with the talk of armed guards.

      I watched the whole proceedings with great interest. Sadly, I think Trayvon Martin got the short end of the stick. In fact, if I'm not mistaken, after the case Zimmerman got into a domestic abuse case. He is a trouble maker and if he doesn't change, there may come a time he will again get in trouble, only this time he won't get away with it.

      Thank you grand old lady. I agree with you. It is interesting that some people I teach with blamed Trayvon. However, Trayvon was dressed just like 95% of the kids we teach. These same teachers seem to be in mentoring relationships with some of these kids.

      Michael Dunn is a really interesting character also. If the music is too loud, move your car!
