You may or may not have followed the high profile case about the Hispanic almost 40 year old George Zimmerman, who, 16 months ago shot a 17 year old during an altercation in the common area of his home owner’s association. Some say he should have received a 2nd degree murder conviction. Instead he was acquitted of all charges. And in fact, the case should never have went to trial say most lawyers because the evidence all pointed to a clear case of self-defense. But because of racial pressure, and a statement from the President of the United States, the local DA was pushed aside, and the chief of police was fired, and a special prosecutor was assigned to bring it to trial even though the evidence was not there. That special prosecutor decided not to take the case before the Grand Jury because she knew she would not get an indictment. And during the trial you heard the DA say to the jury of 6 women, “use your emotions”. What? How about “Follow the law”? The DA was looking for “Justice for Trayvon”, which is not the job of the DA, and they were not “Looking for a conviction” which is the job of the DA. They were just trying to keep the black community from rioting.
But this is not over yet!
But this is not over for George Zimmerman, and I hope it’s not over for the Florida State Attorney’s office either. What I mean by it’s not over for George, is that it is still being played out in the court of personal opinion, and in the media, including social media, e.g., twitter. George, although acquitted of the charge of 2nd degree murder and manslaughter will never have a normal life because so many, (primarily blacks) are not happy with the verdict and have made comments like they want the President to get involved again, and the US Attorney General. If that happens, you will see an even greater divide in this country along racial lines, that will be so huge that it will take another 100 years to fix. And what I meant about the State Attorney’s office is because there were several things that were done that were either illegal or immoral, or both, and if the State of Florida wants people to respect the office of the State Attorney, someone will investigate.
Guilty until proven innocent! (The media bias)
I understand the parents of Trayvon Martin are upset, they lost a child, but they have also lied to us. Trayvon was not this innocent child that everyone including most of the media is portraying him to be; he was a thug. It is known that he smoked pot, tried to purchase an illegal firearm, and may have been involved in burglaries because he had a picture of a pile of jewelry that looked as though it was stolen, but did you hear any of this on the news?
The media started everything out by placing a photo of Trayvon at the age of 12 next to George. Why was that done?
This 12 year old boy was not the person who confronted George Zimmerman that fatal night, yet everyone including the media right now are still trying to make us believe this kid was shot and murdered by this cop wanna-be. But in reality, Trayvon was just as responsible as George for his death. If George Zimmerman was a wanna-be cop, then Trayvon Martin was a wanna-be thug;
Here are some more recent pictures of Trayvon, you make your own decision as to who he really was;
The True Trayvon Martin…
So early on we saw media bias. It makes you wonder what is true in the news these days, can we actually believe what we are seeing or hearing from the news? I think not, in fact I think we should do everything we can to discourage this type of bias in the media. This photo snafu was not the only thing that happened to George before his trial. The media giant NBC rearranged the voice of George during a call to the police to make it sound like George was after Trayvon because he was black, and it may have major implications on what happens now. George has a good case against NBC, and may have a good case against the State of Florida.
In fact the media was so bad on Zimmerman and was so involved in injecting race in the situation with the help from one of the most racist blacks in this country, Al Sharpton, and another race driver, Jessie Jackson Jr, the media spent several months driving in the racial nail. Click the link below for a pretty compelling story of how bad it really was;
Guilty until proven innocent
It would be at the best interest of this country to stop here. The media needs to drop it now, not another word. The State attorney’s office of Florida needs to be investigated for illegal tactics they are accused of doing by withholding evidence, and firing the IT guy who brought it to light. The Chief of Police of Sanford should be re-instated, and it sure smells of racial tones to know the chief was replaced by a black man, another clear case of appeasement. When the President said “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon” it was the most dividing racial thing our current President has ever done. And that statement along with Martin’s family portraying their son as an innocent kid, and blacks marching all over the place, the political stress on the local government in Florida, a major mistake was made in our justice system. This Case should have never have gone to trial.
No one seems to care that George Zimmerman has to live with the fact that he took a life. I care! I wonder when the media will care? When will George Stephanopoulos bring it up? When will NBC apologize for making a serious mistake? Should NBC remain a media giant? Do you believe NBC anymore? I don’t watch much NBC anymore, especially not their news. I mostly watch Fox and ABC, but ABC was also involved in the media prosecution of Zimmerman when Matt Guttmann said that Zimmerman shot Martin because he was black. He said that. And since then I do not like Matt Guttmann and I think he should go away too. Maybe he should go to work for NBC.
And how dumb was the DA?
I watched the head DA make a speech after the trial; she was asked about the screaming on the 911 tape, and what they thought about not being able to prove it was Martin and not Zimmerman, and she said “the screaming stopped when the gun went off, it’s common sense”. Is it really? Common sense says that the guy on the bottom being beat up would be the one screaming. Common sense says that once the gun went off the guy screaming had nothing to scream about, and was probably stunned that he had shot the guy beating the sense out of him, I would be. She also commented on the what she calls fact that if George was in the position he said he was and if Martin was on top like he said he was, there was no way George could get to his gun. Now I’m no expert, but George said he felt Trayvon moving towards his gun, the kid had noticed the gun and was moving towards it, meaning he had to have moved away from George’s hip to go after the gun, at that point George got it first. I’m sorry but that just sounds like the DA is really dumb to me. Am I the only one?
The proof the special prosecutor was so dumb is she accepted to take this case to trial knowing they had no evidence. It was so bad that the prosecutor’s case during the first week of trial was basically for the defense.
Politics and racial tensions were the driving force for a wrongful prosecution, a sad day for the Justice system in our country…
Now I think we’re in for a long ride. I think race will grow to be a huge problem for our President. I think his legacy will be this major race divide unless he does something now. I think the media will change greatly if they don’t drop it right away. They are focusing so much on the black opinion, that the white race in this country will have enough and rise up. I think it’s all coming to a head, and I hate the thought. I am not a racist at all. But I have made some racial comments, but so have you. I seriously feel that race is still an issue because of the blacks that are making it an issue; there may be some whites, but it’s obviously blacks. I don’t ever remember ever having a slave. I have never seen segregation, and I am almost 60 years old. I grew up in northern California, and race was never a big issue. We had our Martin Luther King Blvd. which for some reason was a very bad place to be, but it wasn’t because of the Blacks, although many Blacks had a part in it because of gang activity, it was also Asian gangs, Hispanic gangs, etc. It’s not race as much as it is thugs of all races. We all need to stand up and eliminate the thugs, even if they are someone’s child. Face it, if your kid is a thug, you failed as a parent. We need to unite against the thugs. We have a local county commissioner who is Black, and one day he told all of the “White people” to get out. Nothing happened to him, he is still a Dallas County Commissioner. Go figure…
Did George Zimmerman get Justice?
No and he never will. Sure he was found Not Guilty by our justice system, but like Geraldo Rivera said last night, “he wasn’t found innocent, he was found not guilty” and one of his followers on twitter said, “he was not found innocent because you are innocent until you are found guilty”. Shut him right up! George will not find peace, unless he finds a neighborhood that will welcome him in and protect him. He will always be looking over his shoulder. He will now have to face frivolous lawsuits, and situations that will challenge his sanity. Even though the Martin family said they would accept the verdict, they don’t. Just more gasoline for the fire. I feel sorry for George, he was used as a scapegoat by the State of Florida to ease racial tensions. He needs our help, to make this better he needs as much support as the thug is getting. Move here George, I will help you!
Is that really what they want?
Does the Black community really want to idolize Trayvon? To make a thug as a representative of racial oppression? I am relieved that George got off because you may have had to make a decision; “Should I let this guy kill me, or do I save myself only to face life in prison”? Really, Justice was served in court, but justice was not served in the media. When will that change?
The truth will set you free! THE TRUTH! Not media fiction. Just because you say it does not make it real…
