Zimmerman racist narrative implodes
Legal Insurrection ^ | July 13, 2012 | Professor William A. Jacobson, esquire

It probably will not stop those who want to portray the case as racial from continuing to make claims of racial motivation in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, but the FBI has confirmed that there is no substantial evidence that George Zimmerman was racist.

Via Orlando Sentinel, FBI interviews: No evidence Zimmerman a racist

Federal civil-rights investigators interviewed dozens of George Zimmerman’s friends, neighbors and co-workers, and no one said he was a racist, records released Thursday show.

FBI agents spread out across the state, talking to three dozen people, including gun-shop employees, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancée and the Sanford police detective who led the investigation into the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.

And as the Sentinel further reports, additional evidence released mostly supports Zimmeran:

The new batch of evidence includes nearly 300 pages plus police-dispatch audio and crime-scene photos. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara received it last month.

There was little new that appeared to help the state’s case. Two witnesses said they heard an argument, then the voices moved away then they heard cries for help and a gunshot.

That does not match Zimmerman’s version of events. He told police there was a very brief exchange of words, then Trayvon punched him in the nose with such force that he fell to the ground. He said the teenager climbed on top of him and began punching him and pounding his head into a sidewalk.

Most of the new evidence appeared to favor Zimmerman.

A new witness whose name was blacked out told a prosecution investigator March 27 that she saw the fight and that the person on top was the one who wound up dead.

That makes two witnesses — one from an earlier evidence release — who back up Zimmerman’s version that Trayvon had overpowered him.

The Martin family’s attorney still is pushing the racism theme:

It was perfectly obvious, only about two days after this hit the headlines, that the whole racist-whites-attacking-an-innocent-black-victim claim was phony.

Same thing for the Duke lacrosse case. Same thing for Tawana Brawley.

Many of us saw those were phony charges from the get-go. Many of us don't understand how anyone with half a brain can't see through the lies.

But once these racial memes get started, they take on a life of their own, facts and truth be damned.

My oh my, they’re vetting GZ real good, aren’t they?

Why didn’t they do this good a job of vetting with a certain illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim a few years ago?

maybe Zimmerman could claim all those white ppl who accuse him as guilty, as the racist, because Zimmerman is “black “(he’s more black than Warren is Cherokee)

I pray that Zimmerman walks. All it takes is one juror to have the guts to hold out for an acquittal.

I’d hold out and vote not guilty.
It wouldn’t matter to me if the jury was held over for months on end...I’d never budge.

Probably I’d end up having to hide out in a shack somewhere with Zim to keep from getting grabbed by a lynch mod.

The real possibility that any juror voting to acquit would face an angry mob means Zim can’t get a fair trial. :-(

The judge obviously lestered Zimmerman when he said the state had a strong case. There’s an attorney rating of the judge on the internet that shows the judge isn’t up to snuff. O’Mara did good by submiting the motion.

O’Mara stuck the bias up the judge’s ass during the last bond hearing. He put the judge on notice then and forced him to allow a mini-trail during the hearing. The judge had to be fuming during the recesses.

The only reason Zimmerman is on trial is because of the power of the black mob.

The mob descended on this man led by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and because anything in America that can possibly—in any manner —be construed as racism, makes Al and Jesse the centers of attention they hopped right on it.They have made a good living stirring racial tension where there should be none .Al has even gotten people killed.For that he gets his own TV show.

Latest news from The Conservative Tree House (Treepers) is the Crips gang link and Trayvon Martin’s dad, Tracy....he had Crips gang tattoo on his neck...and changed it to “praying hands” just before meeting Obama in March

Wonder if that is where the “kill Zimmerman” stuff started?

He’s already be publicly pre-tried and pre-sentenced; all there is left is the final public execution by the *race-baiter cabal*. Justice, legalities and such Constitutional nonsense be damned.

They only have their "power" because we gave/give it to them by being compliantly weak. If Whites decided to stick together in the same fashion, they would end up cowering in the shadows (after the initial response to their attacks which would likely erase a bunch of them).

Good to know the FBI is going all out on this just like they do with every local incident... oh, wait, they don't... just with extra special ones where if Obama had a son ones and the black community is up in arms. More government corruption, hassling citizens and wasting tax dollars.

The ‘racist’ label amounts to a lynch mob, with no regard to justice.

If Zimmerman was black would this be an issue? If Martin was white would there be an issue? If Zimmerman was black and Martin was white Zimmerman would be a hero defending his community.

Zimmerman is being lynched because he isn’t significantly enough a minority, but lynched just the same.

Actually Zimmerman is black, if someone with a black grandmother is black. His grandmother was half-African and half-Peruvian Indian, so he is one-eighth black. It's just that in our system of racial categories, "Hispanic" overrides "black" so someone who is both is counted as "Hispanic" (at least in most cases). The media decided that Zimmerman was white because of his surname. Perhaps if his surname had been Hispanic the case would have been ignored.

Corey, the judge, and Bill O'Reilly all pander to the Martin family's attorney. Maybe if Zimmerman can get a different judge he will have a shot at a fair trial.

Let’s not forget the central purpose of this political trial. It is to demonize self defense and the second amendment.

Zimmerman is just the citizen they are sacrificing at the alter of injustice and anti-freedom.

Obviously you’re not up to speed with the new English where everyone can make up their own words. /s

Judge Lester publicly showed his bias by his statements which implied that Zimmerman was guilty. Since judges are supposed to be impartial, Judge Lester lestered Zimmerman by the very act of publicly stating he thought the man was guilty or that the state had a strong case when other than the affidavit, which was a joke, no evidence had been presented. Another term would be molestered being a combination of moron and lestered.

Another word resulting from the incident is the use of trayvon to describe the killing of a thug in self defense. Trayvon was trayvoned.

siummit’ with, he’s proved it by being a member of a purely racist church for so many hyears, he’s proved it by his involvement and astatements he’s made abotu trayvon- thsoe other cases didn’t have a president dedicated to fuelign the racebaiting card as thsi case has

[[“The Martin family’s attorney still is pushing the racism theme]]

I had respect for them in the beginning when they were tellign the truth, because I felt for them after havign lost hteir son- however, after watchign them other cash in on the son’s name by trademarking it (WTH?) and then watchign BOTH the [parents CHANGE their stories midstream because the TRUTH that htey originally told didn’t fit in with the whole racist angle- I lost ALL respect and symapathy for them! It is VERY clear that this has becoem a fiancial incentive for them, and they ahave now compeltely crossed thel ien of human decency, and have sold their souls to the evil one for the sake of financial gain- They hd a chance to calm the crowds by calling for the crowds to simply let the law do what it had to and to accept what the law determiend i nthe end, but nope- they too are fueling the racehatred angle most likely because our dear leader has either urged them to do, or financially incentivised them to do-

If the latter is hte case, I sure hope the info gets leaked to the public REAL soon

[[Let’s not forget the central purpose of this political trial. It is to demonize self defense and the second amendment.]]

Which is EXACTLY why zimmerman’s lawyer NEEDS to vigorously attack the other side and to bring lawsuits agaisnt them when the trial is over IF the trial shows zimmerman is not guilty (whcih I seriously doubt will be the case considerign that hte judge has already tipped his hat i n the directio nthat he is leaning)

if Zim wins, then Zimmerman needs to go after thsoe whlo rrailroaded him and denied him justice while he awaited trial— and that means EVERYONE who did, in order to send a very clear message that whoever tries to thwart justice will be severely dealt with legally, and that their actions will NOT be tolorated in a society run by laws-
However, I doubt george will even opursue it should he be foudn not guilty- asnd the left will just wait for the next case in which a blsack person is killed in selfdefense by a ‘white’ person (who happens ot be hispanic, the very people that our dear leader is now tryign to court? I SWEAR our dear leader could crap on a person and convince them it is for their own good and htey would beleive it)
