BH Obama released a written statement concerning the verdict of the George Zimmerman trial and it is a statement that reflects that this president is not concerned about a nation divided, if he did he would not have made his “If I had a son” statement. Now he calls for people to accept the verdict, while his DOJ is seeking ways to enact revenge, requested by the racial organization of NAACP [founded by Mary “White” Ovington] …
And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son.
George is a Spanish-speaking minority with many black family members and friends.
His mother is Peruvian-American, and George grew up in Manassas, Virginia, where neighbors describe the Zimmerman’s as very religious – George was an altar boy and evening receptionist at the family’s parish, All Saints Catholic Church. The Zimmerman children attended Catholic school through the eighth grade, then public high school. The family moved to Florida about a decade ago. George married Shellie Nicole Dean, a cosmetologist, in 2007.
George Zimmerman has been acquitted: Not Guilty of Second-Degree Murder and Not Guilty of Manslaughter charges. The six women jurors deliberated for 15 hours over two days before the verdict was reached about 10pm, Saturday. The prosecution’s case was weak and fortunately the jury provided a benefit of doubt, and considered that the forensic evidence showed that Trayvon Martin was the aggressor, beating on Zimmerman, who did not pull his firearm from the holster until Martin had his hands near where he carried his concealed carry firearm. Yet people are sad that he was not convicted. Racism has been prevalent throughout this trial – Zimmerman, in the eyes of media [thanks to them the fervor] and with the aid of stupid remarks from President Obama [a president should never interfere with such a civil case], immediately Zimmerman was deemed a racist. Congressional members were just as guilty of prejudicial remarks.
No one considered that Zimmerman had not only been a member of a community watch, but also reportedly helped young people of the community who were black. It did not matter to the general black public. It did not matter that the media at first painted Zimmerman as white, and later found he was Hispanic – mostly because of his non-Hispanic surname, Zimmerman. The media and the president is to blame for any repercussions of the verdict delivered by the jury.
After 15 months he is a free man, but is he? Throughout the ordeal, George Zimmerman was guilty until proven innocent. A little different from what the law reads.
Soon after closing arguments are finished, the jury in the Zimmerman trial will begin its deliberation. During the deliberation the main elements/questions of the trial must be considered based on evidence presented:
Whose screams were heard on the 911 calls? At the beginning, the Martin family were unsure of whose voice was on the recording of cries for help, but later, after a meeting with the family as a collective, they changed that to stating that it was definitely Trayvon Martin. Friends of Zimmerman state that it was the voice of George Zimmerman. No voice print expert was ever produced during the trial to investigate by voice pattern who was crying for help, and the judge would not allow anything found on Martin’s cell phone that could be used for evidence of Martin’s possible intentions or his background of being violent or criminal activities.
Who was on top when the shooting occurred? Neighbors saw the struggle in the darkness, but the question was who was the aggressor, the one on top of the other beating the person on the ground. Jonathan Good, who had the best view, stated he saw a person in dark clothing straddling someone in red or white clothing and was using his fists in a downward, pummeling motion on the person on the ground. Zimmerman’s injuries indicate that he was the one pummeled with fists.
[AP/Yahoo] – James Holmes in the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting trial pleads not guilty by reason of insanity. To me, accepting a plea of insanity is itself insane, making as much sense as charging a person who commits a violent act under a ‘hate crime’ law. One does not commit violence against another because they ‘like’ them. Degrees of homicide has been established because of varying circumstances of intent, as well as manslaughter for those who inadvertently because of careless actions cause the death of someone; but to plea insanity to escape death penalty or some leniency of the court is ridiculous.
Why should taxpayers fund the cost of keeping a person around for life in prison when a dog can be sentenced to death just for injury of a person by biting?
…said that the trajectory of the bullet and gun powder on Martin’s body support Zimmerman’s version that Martin was on top of him …The pathologist also said it was likely Martin was conscious for 10 to 15 seconds after the shooting as a reserve supply of oxygen ran out of his body and during that time it was possible for him to have moved his arms. Zimmerman’s account that he had placed Martin’s arms out to his sides after the shooting contradicts a photo taken after the shooting that shows Martin’s arms under his body … Di Maio also explained that if clothes taken into evidence are wet and packaged in plastic bags, and not paper bags, it can ruin the samples … Defense attorneys believe DNA evidence found on Martin’s hooded sweatshirt and undershirt was degraded since the clothing wasn’t packaged properly.
The Trayvon Martin shooting case is sticky enough, with the prosecution reaching for straws in order to convict George Zimmerman for Second-Degree Murder, but the morons [and racists] in cyberspace are not helping matters much. Neither has the mainstream media in the whole reporting history of the case.
Now it has gone “viral” over the chain Email circuit that the 17-year-old had tattoos and looked more like a gangster than the innocent-looking youth the media presented [next to a not so good photo of Zimmerman].
