There is a good reason why a lot of the most vocal and outrageous hucksters trying to push the Trayvon Martin case into the limelight are now falling silent.
Al Sharpton is now where to be found near the case today. Neither is Jesse Jackson.
The details of the case are finally emerging and it does not fit the narrative they so desperately want to push.
Now the latest news is that Special Prosecutor Angela Corey has decided not to convene a grand jury to hear the case. Instead, she is continuing to investigate.
What does this mean?
It means several things. First, in Florida, with the exception of Capital Murder cases, a case does not have to be sent to a grand jury. The prosecutor can simply file the charges without a grand jury presentation. The Grand Jury can be a great way to get rid of a troublesome case. I know, because I have done that when I was a prosecutor.
The reality of what this means is that she has probably decided there will be no charges forthcoming against George Zimmerman.
Because the evidence supports his story that he was attacked and that he was in fear of his life.
When the police and prosecutors investigate a case, they interview the witnesses then look to see if the physical evidence supports the witness’s claims. In this case, Zimmerman claims that Martin struck him in the face, knocked him down, started smashing his head against the ground.
The physical evidence, at least what has been released or leaked so far is that Zimmerman had a broken nose and a laceration on the back of his head. All are consistent with his claim. There is an autopsy report that has not been made public but will show where the gunshot wound entered the body, its angle of travel and if there was an exit wound. Those will be measured against the statement of Zimmerman.
Shortly after this story first made national headlines, the Martin family lawyers claimed that Trayvon Martin was talking to his girlfriend on the phone when this happened. Surprisingly that claim has been forgotten by the drive by media that was too busy editing audio and videotapes to make the Zimmerman story fit their narrative.
Martin was not the innocent 12 year old that his family and the media wanted to portray him as. He was a 17-year-old football player. He also had started having problems in school and with the law. While those problems are not really relevant to the investigation of his death, the fact that he was younger, bigger and in better shape than Zimmerman would go along with Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense.
The left started to make this case about the so-called “stand your ground” laws. The only problem is George Zimmerman was apparently on his back, being attacked. It is hard to stand your ground when you are sucker punched and lying, bleeding on the ground.
Everything seems to indicate that the prosecutor will not file charges. This case is a dream for a defense lawyer if charges were to be filed. In lawyer speak, it has reasonable doubt written all over it and all George Zimmerman would need is reasonable doubt in order to be acquitted.
However, this case should never get that far. People like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, along with the racists in the New Black Panther Party have created a lynch mob atmosphere. Jackson and Sharpton should be ashamed of themselves but they won’t be.
We need to put this story to sleep.
No. It is best that this be played out so the people can see how they have been manipulated by the race entrepreneurs.
Sharpton made himself famous by whipping up racial tensions during another lynch mob where Tawana Brawley's racial crime accusations were proven false. And, we remember the Duke fiasco where Sharpton injected himself into another victim reversal case, whipping up racial animosity for his ratings. We never heard an apology for either and we are unlikely to hear remorse over the Zimmerman lynching attempt.
So let this play out; maybe we will have another "beer summit," a "teachable" moment where Zimmerman will be invited to a silent condemnation on the White House lawn where he will be educated for public consumption. And in the end everyone will be left to wonder who is teaching who, what.
This just in: (heard on 11pm news)
George Zimmerman has just posted a new website asking for donations. http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com/
Yes, Debrajoe, we need to put this story to sleep ~~ along with the New Black Panther Party!!!
Now James I will second that, in particular the New Black Panther Party along with Al Big Mouth Sharpton, and Jessee Jackson.
If found innocent not aquitted, there is a difference, Zimmerman should sue Sharpton, Jackson, and all the news media. Sue the idiots for everything he can get.
David you are right. I am tired of the hype the media does. This was a terrible incident and should not have had the coverage it received. Except Obama is using it.
That would be awesome. It would be wonderful to see them held accountable. I won't hold my breath David.
You might want to Google the term "pro bono",Billy. It means "for the good". It's suppponsed to refer to legal work done for free. I hate to admit it, but there are a few lawyers who do such stuff.
There are some conscientious attorneys who do "pro bono" work to pay back for the blessings they have received.
Amen and right on!
No sleeping here....
I want these NBPP's out in the open, in the light of day!
They need every telescope, microscope, phone cam, and eyeball on them and their agitation.
