What Does Trayvon Martinís Death say about Humanity and the Justice System? (Cover keyboard)
The Las Vegas Guardian Express ^ | July 16, 2013 | Veverly Edwards

While those of us who see the injustice, ponder the outcome, reconstruct events in our head, and search for answers, the real problem is not the system it is the lack of integrity of those that we trust within the process. Humanity and Justice call for us to answer the question, how can a child be killed by someone we know was the aggressor and six jurors return with not guilty?

Many people thought this was the worst thing that could have happened, but it was Sybrina Fulton’s words that brought sobriety to us, the worst thing that could have happened transpired on February 26, 2012, the day Trayvon was killed.

What Zimmerman’s trial did was shine a brighter light on the unjust statutes that allowed February 26, 2012 to happen and the need for greater accountability. It also shows us that justice cannot prevail in a system laden with discrimination and unjust legal practices. Those with a “stand your ground” mentality, carrying guns are not going to find someone like Zimmerman guilty, he is one of them.

People must first realize that something went terribly wrong on that night. It was not just a casual mishap by Zimmerman, as juror B-37 wants us to believe. Zimmerman made a fatal error which cost a young African American his life, and the fact that she could do an interview and make his actions appear cavalier, made me question if she had any ties to “George.”

What the federal justice system needs to recognize is that justice in small towns is difficult for minorities. The legal system is usually filled with the mentality of the political party that is dominate, and unjust practices when it comes to justice for minorities is a way of life, much like the old south.

In these toxic systems, politicians, courts, judges, attorneys, and jurors may be corrupt and sadly in cases like Trayvon’s murder, we see the contamination, hear it, smell it and can touch it, but cannot convict it. Consequently, it is apparent to the American people that something went terribly wrong and it was not just Zimmerman, but those who went to extremes to keep him from accountability.

A report on Slate, states that B-37 wanted to be a juror on this trial and how cautiously she answered questions, not appearing to be sympathetic to either side. We also know that her husband is an attorney. So one would ponder had she been prepped for the job. She is certainly opinionated and if met with a weaker voice, one can see where she could be an influence.

There have been questions raised regarding the way the prosecution handled the case. Why they allowed B-37 to be a juror? Her background should have been flags for the prosecution. Was there really someone worse than her?

There is also the question of why the prosecution did not ask for a change of venue? In life, Trayvon found no justice in that community. Certainly, at the trial of his death by a White-Hispanic man in that community, knowing the sentiments and political atmosphere, the prosecution should have questioned if justice could prevail for Trayvon and his family in that setting. Surely, the fact that the police did not initially hold Zimmerman for the crime and simply released him, should have also been cause for reservations.

While I may seem too opinionated. I myself have been in a similar situation, not with the criminal justice system, but with the civil system and the same situation played out except we did not make it to trial. An unscrupulous attorney attempted to use fraudulent information to intimidate me into dismissing the case with prejudice. I was in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

I could not get the media in Idaho Falls or surrounding areas to report about the case. I had several reporters contact me. I even told one that once those in control in Idaho Falls get wind of her investigation, they would stop her from reporting it. Consequently, she eventually stopped contacting me and the story was never done.

I wrote to the Mayor of Idaho Falls, Jared Fuhriman, for assistance in getting a police report taken. I later received a copy of a letter where the city attorney, Randall Fife, who the Mayor turned to for advice, gave misinformation regarding the facts and stated that it would be “improper” to prosecute a local doctor for falsifying information during a civil court process even though Idaho has a law that states the doctor’s actions were a felony offense. It would be interesting to know Fife’s idealology on who it would be “proper” to charge with felony offenses.

I also wrote the city council, legislative representatives of Idaho Falls, the Idaho Attorney General’s Office, Governor Otter, and filed a complaint with the Idaho Bar Association.

My daughter was pronounced brain-dead in October 2007 due to this doctor prescribing a drug he had no knowledge of. Although she lived, she is now disabled. The doctor and his legal team, with the assistance of the attorney representing my child’s interest, used altered medical records to make a mockery of the civil trial process in April of 2012, the trial date was scheduled for October 2012.

After writing the city council, I had one council person to respond and request an explanation from the Chief of Police in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Supposedly, they are investigating it, but when I recently requested a case number, one had not been assigned yet.

The Idaho Board of Medicine is now investigating the actions of the doctor.

In systems laden with discrimination; when officials go behind closed doors to investigate a complaint, even in the presence of police, lawyers and even judges who are supposed to uphold the law, things can become extremely murky and justice may be replaced with misguided political views. The rights of minorities in these communities are denied by those purportedly responsible for upholding them.

For minorities everything needs to be done before the public’s view. So that the American people can see what transpires because this is the only hope of seeing justice in these communities. If the media does not function as it should in these areas, as it did not in Idaho Falls for my family, there is little hope of attention being drawn to unjust legal practices that violate the rights of citizens.

Prayerfully, Trayvon’s case will bring much needed change to the justice system which presently lacks integrity in many respects. Human rights and justice have no voice in these communities.

The only photo of her I could find was very tiny. Notice she's accusing jurors and others of collusion? And she has no idea what a change of venue is all about? Hint: It's not for the benefit of a Trayvon Martin.

It says the US justice system is still capable of recognizing the human instinct for survival.

Any other questions?

Its all right there, isn't it? Logic will be eligible for "antique" plates soon.

This is a racist piece of crap, partially incoherent, and lacking in a knowledge of the law.

In other words, the scriblings of a typical Democrat. Long on ignorance; very short on facts.

Yeah , it also says that many voters are too busy working , and leave too many decisions to the media " Talking heads"

It says that if someone consideres some criminal issue, and you don't like the outcome , you should petition to the Dep. of "JUST-US",
until you get the decsion you want !

It also proves the point that with ANY ALLEGATION OF RACISM , you are GUITY , until PROVEN innocent !

I would say it shows that if you live like a thug you will die like a thug and that the Justice system can work.

This is what I wrote:

Barf barf barf. I agree Zimmerman made a mistake by not getting back to his car in time but the fact remains Zimmerman was attacked and targeted as we now know as being a homosexual rapist. Really? The laws aren’t unjust people like you are demanding justice when none is needed. 94% of Americas blacks are killed by blacks, 49% of all murders are committed by blacks, if you are white you are 7x more likely to fall victim to an african american than a black is to fall victim to a white man. 44.3% of Justifiable homicides are committed by African Americans, ask those 44% if the Stand Your Ground laws were unjust to them. Keep in mind with all those statistics that African Americans are only 12.5% of the population.

What Trayvon Martin’s death says about parts of our society is that if you do not arrest people when they have committed crimes and you find them with the evidence (the school safety officer) and you have no consequences for someone smoking dope and fighting....then bad things will happen in the end.

The tolerance of some on the left of the plantation mentality that says we can expect no better behavior from ‘them’ (whoever that might be) then what you end up is a bunch of young adults who engage in wilding and all sorts of illegal activities with no consequences.

All this hand wringing is nonsense. Nothing whatsoever would have happened to Trayvon had he simply not attacked another person.

This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts I’ve been listening to can’t seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.

.For certain since the not guilty verdict has been rendered the facts of this case are still being concealed by the media such as pictures of both side by side they look like cousins. The mixed area that Zimmerman was a “watch captain” in was struggling with single and groups of young blacks on the prowl.,In some instances armed, preying on his area..That area wasn’t even examinined because it wouldn’t fit their agenda.. Which if done , if true journalisim existed, because that might explain his action of surveilance . In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. WHAT THE DEMO-COMS HAVE DONE IS PUT THESE SUCESSFULL PROGRAMS BECAUSE OF ITS IDEOLOGY IN JEPORADY....

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, and a very dark skinned “hispanic” Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a racist episode. The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” .or used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Meanwhile attacks by black groups on selected happless white victims which wind in their death get ignored by the mainline socialist messengers MSM service and black on black killings many of the age of the so called victim is likewise same-o same-o.

Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edicted by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of government step on you and squash you like some insect.. Until the quashers are quashed this will continue..

I agree with you. The claim that Zimmerman was the aggressor is a lie. Martin assaulted Zimmerman. We all know that TM sucker punched GZ, by the broken nose and slammed his head into the concrete several times. We know this from photos and other evidence. Did Zimmerman panic? Did he fear for his life? That's the question people refuse to admit or consider in this case.
I believe that if GZ had not shot TM, we'd have a man hospitalized in a coma and a juvenile delinquent on the loose with a 9mm Kel-Tec bragging to his friends.

The facts of the Trayvon case in th;e way of liberalism’s racist ideology. What we should learn from this case is “don’t live the life of a thug. You might get shot.

>”how can a child be killed by someone we know was the aggressor”<

Trayvon killed himself?

Last time I checked, a 17 year old can be tried as an Adult depending on the Crime committed. What’s this “child” crap?
