Trayvon Martin Case: George Zimmerman not being charged
Chicago Now Blog ^ | April 7, 2012 | Don Ellis

Posted on 04/07/2012 7:59:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

I was told that the State of Florida is going to announce on Tuesday that there is not enough evidence to prosecute George Zimmerman.

This is a tip I got from a very close friend who would not make this up.

This person is very close to the Seminole County FL Sheriff's Department, and says that the cops are already getting ready for trouble in Sanford.

Again I have no confirmation of this outside of my source, but I do trust this person with my life.

Tuesday is the day the Grand Jury is supposed to look at the Martin/Zimmerman case.

How could anybody have an inside line on how that plays out?

The likelihood of an indictment is greater rather than lesser because I don’t believe prosecutors are required to present exculpatory evidence which is why they say they can indict a ham sandwich. They can do a completely one sided presentation to the GJ to get the outcome they want.

All hell is going to break out no matter what. It’s 0h0m0’s plan. If Zimmerman had not shot Tray-von Martin, another faux or real crime against a black person would have sufficed or been invented. There is and was no way around the hell we’re going to have to experience.

Note my tagline.

That is almost inevitable, that the DoJ will press federal "Civil rights" charges against Zimmerman, take the case and prosecute in federal court.

I was enjoying a beautiful day today on Long Island. At around 12:30 pm I was driving past the Patchogue, NY SCPD precinct and saw something I couldn’t believe.

There were about 75 African Americans in hoodies screaming “No justice, no peace” over and over again.

Wow!

LOL.

I’m closer to Tampa and St.Petersburg. I can’t begin to imagine what’s going to be going on there if Zimmerman isn’t charged.

They’ll probably burn down Tropicana Field in St.Pete.

This seems to be more like a rumor than breaking news.

I have my doubts about this “source”.

Because the media narrative has been so disgusting, I do hope this turns out to be true though.

He may not be charged by Florida, but don’t count out the Ubama/Holder “Justice Department” - - they will surely announce that they are still conducting their own “investigation”, and that will result in a federal charge.

I think the behavior of the press may have contributed to deciding not to charge him. Their malfeasance in this case has probably made finding an impartial jury nearly impossible, and the police and prosecutor have to know that.

These prosecutors are in a TIGHT spot. They can probably get him indited all day long. BUt they have practically ZERO chance getting a conviction, based on the evidence made public so far.

What are Marcia Clark and Chris Darden doing now? Not being prosecutors. Don’t think that hasn’t crossed THESE prosecutors minds.

That is almost inevitable...

That it is. This whole affair has been carefully contrived from the very beginning. I think it is a gross political miscalculation, personally, and I also think its roots rest in the highest offices within the 0bama Executive. It's one of those tools that was irresistible because it was easy to use, but the consequences are likely to be quite a bit more difficult to manage than the inception.

It is, however, a wonderful distraction from other matters that tend to call Holder's departmental administration into question: Fast And Furious, for example, and more to the point, the dropping of charges against the poll thugs in '08. He now can be cast in the media as a civil rights champion instead of the grossly biased operator that he really is. That is why I think it a miscalculation: 0bama's re-election now rests on one of the weakest, least competent, and most openly racist links in his administration. It isn't anything to hazard the office on, IMHO. Apparently senior Democrats disagree with me in that regard.

If Holder goes after Zimmerman then a republican comes in and appoints a new AG, I’d be just as worried if I was Zimmerman. I doubt a new AG would have the balls to drop it.

I smell riots

a la Rodney King

itsa cumin boys n girls!

The thing is, back in LA, blacks-against-koreans was an uneven match with numbers WAAAAY in the blacks’ favor. This time around, blacks-against-latinos is not going to turn out well for the blacks...and latinos are not likely to let bygones be bygones once the dust settles.

Manson's “Helter Skelter” is very similar to Sharpton’s vision for the future. Use a tragedy to ratchet up racial tension that will lead to race riots. And they both used women to commit murder by proxy.

Who knew Charley and Al had so much in common?

The final voice analysis had to be a big disappointment for the injustice department. With Zimmerman being hispanic, the cards didn’t play out they way they wanted. I don’t think the feds have a shot. I think they’ve been benched.

Why should he be charged if the prosecutor does not believe there is evidence he committed a crime (there is none)?

All the news organizations that willfully misreported on this case deserve to be sued by George Zimmerman.

Was it a conspiracy, as some allege? No, it was worse, I believe, it was political correctness induced by wishful thinking about a noble African-American race!

Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett said on Thursday that the city’s emergency management team has met regularly with the U.S Department of Justice to construct a plan. Officials said extra police officers and fire department officials are on standby. Neighboring agencies have also been asked to assist, if needed.

“You always prepare for the worst and hope for the best,” Triplett said. “We’re planning for the ‘what-if’ case scenario, and that would be to make sure that all of our citizens get the protection they pay their taxes for.”
