This is George Zimmerman's defense attorney, Don West, celebrating with his daughters after he attempted to bully and humiliate 19 yr Rachel Jeantel as she testified for Trayvon.
Do you remember his patronizing tones as he addressed her?
"Are you saying you cannot read the letter?"

After he left the courtroom that evening  he went celebrating with his classy daughters. The ones who are not stupid. On the way to get their ice-cream they spoke about the case. Do you wonder what was said during that conversation.

How does one top opening a murder trial with a knock-knock joke? Why an ice cream selfie on Instagram, of course! Just a few hours after his knock-knock joke fell flat, defense lawyer in the George Zimmerman murder trial Don West spent the court recess with his daughters getting ice cream. The threesome took a photo of themselves enjoying the tasty treats, which West's daughter Molly then posted on Instagram
Notice the caption?
“We beat stupidity celebration cones  #zimmerman #defense #dadkilledit.”

Is this acceptable behavior for an officer of the court?

Offered without further comment.

Update:

Thanks to our own brilliant Ericlewis0 who found this from the daughters:

@Jack_Rich_W @hole19er NO I DO NOT LIKE CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM, vanilla is so much purer. #zimmerman

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
