Obama's reaction to a Zimmerman acquittal - any thoughts?
Self | 07/04/13 | fwdude

Posted on 07/04/2013 7:20:07 AM PDT by fwdude

The real news, in the event of a George Zimmerman acquittal, will be Obama's reaction to the case, and the predictable violence that will follow. It is almost a certainty that his "Justice" department will pursue "civil rights violation" charges, and Zimmerman will be embroiled in this struggle for the rest of his life.

I pray for a swift and judicious resolution, but I am inclined to agree with your assessment, dude.

I think they let the cat out of the bag this morning, that the prosecution in his criminal trial are *not* pursuing a criminal conviction, but *are* setting Zimmerman up for a major wrongful death lawsuit by Martin’s parents.

Thus Zimmerman will be “OJ’ed”: acquitted, which will satisfy the “white people”, yet get a multi-million dollar lawsuit against him, with an all-black jury, for the “black people”. Which will be followed up by the MSM declaring the criminal jury “nuts” for having acquitted him.

However, this being said, Florida does not want a federal civil rights lawsuit, so they have likely “poisoned the well” against that, too.

I imagine he will say its a travesty that this happened to a young black young with so much potential but not racebait so obviously (because he knows we’’re watching and not stupid) but leave it hanging in the air that it was done by “white” man then stare into the 0zamazombies eyes and telpathicall command them to riot against “the white man”.

I believe Florida’s laws protect someone found not-guilty of a crime from being prosecuted civilly for the same incident.

He will talk harshly about the riots, but claim to understand the rioters emotions, as he too, is sad Trayvon didn’t recieve justice. He will have Holder look into civil rights charges.

Obama will use it as the impetus for passing the Affordable Justice Act (aka ObamaJustice) which will allow the Executive Branch to create a new federal agency which will have the power and responsibility of appointing juries in all criminal and civil proceedings throughout the land.

Zimmerman will walk and Obama and all the other sharptonistas will just grumble about it and let him go.

They failed to properly vet this loser case before running with it and it didn't work out for them at all.

How the hell were they supposed to know that a guy named "Zimmerman" could be half hispanic and a quarter black? They just assumed he'd be as white as Robert Byrd's pajamas. That threw a monkey wrench into their plans right from the start, and they never fully recovered.

He made good use of it when it happened, but I haven’t heard him say anything about it recently.

I think he’ll ignore it, sit back, and let the rioters riot.

Six months ago the DOJ would have engaged in an INJUST pursuit of Zimmeman under civil rights laws.

However, IMO that time has passed. Obama, Holder, Jarrett, the IRS, the EPA et al have (much to their chagrin) had their agendas and abuse of power become apparent to more of the American people. When Zimmerman is acquited, there will be some riots by the low-IQ and most racist segments of the black population. And Obama will certainly say things such as “Let’s please get along”—all the while doing everything he can behind the scenes to forment civil unrest.

The Egyptian people are now wise to Obama, Hilliary Clinton and Huma and the Muslim Brotherhood crew. It’s about time that the American people wake up also.

First, I am not convinced Zimmerman is innocent....although it certainly looks that way from the stuff I see on Cable News. We all have to remember that we ony get to see what Cable News wants us to see. We get filtered stuff. The jury gets to see everything and hear everything and whatever they decide, I will respect their decision....as we all should.

Second, should Zimmerman be found innocent of the charges (which at this writing appears likely from my vantage point), the minority community will take its cue’s from Rev Al Sharpton, Rev Jessee Jackson, President Barack Obama. If they say, “The verdict is in, the jury has spoken, and it’s time to move on,” there will be no problems. If, however; one, both or all give a some sort of racially- chargerd-stemwinder-of-a-speech, let the race riots begin!!

The sad thing in all of this is that Zimmerman started the train rolling by his actions. Yes, I said it. He started the train rolling. He should have called the police and drove home if he thought Trayvon was suspicious. I come from Oakland myself (I’m white) and based on what Zimmerman has described, Trayvon was doing nothing suspicious in my book. A dude is allowed to walk home.

Still, it was Trayvon who ultimately over reacted by jumping to an incorrect conclusion about Zimmerman. This is unfortunate as hell because it cost him his life. I seriously wonder why neither of them chose the option of talking to one another. Talking works!! I grant that Zimmerman may not have had the opportunity before he was jumped.

The bottom line is that this is an ugly mess. Yes, Trayvon made the final bad decision and I ultimately think Zimmerman was the victim, but it does not negate the fact that a teenage walking home from a 7-11 was killed for absolutely no good reason.

You Community Watch people out there better all review your procedures!!!! Also, some of you neighborhood control freaks better rethink your methods too.....the next guy you approach or stare at in your community might freak out like Trayvon did.

Zimmerman is guitly of nothing, but he made a lot of stupid mistakes....

Problem is, Trayvon didn't live there. If he did, he'd likely have been familiar with GZ and the Neighborhood Watch, and known why he'd be out there.

Zimmerman should have spent the last year getting in shape. The second he is acquitted he needs to hop the next flight to Aubagne and enlist in the Foreign Legion.

I don’t think these two cases are similar at all. Richard Jewell was not involved AT ALL. Zimmerman was very involved regardless of how it turns out.

What I was referring to is the fact the media decided that Jewell was guilty and hounded him until it was finally proven he wasn't involved. In Zimmerman's case, they've done the same thing, and you can bet they'll hound him to death, quite probably a literal event.

>> yet get a multi-million dollar lawsuit against him

3 problems with that fantasy.

1) The prosecution’s case has been a DISASTER. They HAVE no evidence against Z, and the witnesses “against” him corroborate his story. Unlike in OJ’s trial, where it was pretty clear the prosecution had a case but not an airtight one. I don’t think the race whores would necessarily prevail in a suit.

2) If he’s acquitted, Zimmerman has some recourse himself against Crump and his Scheme Team for fraud that led to wrongful prosecution. Z also has some potential for lawsuits against various media and others involved in the railroading attempt.

2) Right now, Z ain’t GOT no “million dollars”. Unless you’re talking about his legal debts. What are they going to do if they win? Kill him and his wife and part them out for their organs?

-- we ony get to see what Cable News wants us to see. We get filtered stuff. ... --

We get as much as we decide to get. The unfiltered information is available. It;s clear from your post you have not availed yourself of the free access to unfiltered information about this case.

-- The sad thing in all of this is that Zimmerman started the train rolling by his actions. --

Yes, he got out of his truck, and followed a person he could not see (Martin had lost him). Later, Martin approached Zimmerman. Clearly, Zimmerman's fault.

-- ... based on what Zimmerman has described, Trayvon was doing nothing suspicious in my book. --

Zimmerman described a person who was obviously not Frank Taffee, standing in Frank Taffee's front yard (20 feet from the sidewalk) and looking at Frank Taffee's house. Frank Taffee's house had been burglarized in the past two month, if I have that detail correct.

-- it does not negate the fact that a teenage walking home from a 7-11 was killed for absolutely no good reason. --

Lets you volunteer to take a beating from somebody who can physically overpower you. You don;t get to pick the time or place. Nobody will come to your assistance. You are forbidden from defending yourself. Sounds fair to me, and it'll be your fault to boot.
