Skip to comments.George Zimmermanís Lawyer: 'Facts Have Been Spun by the Media'
Posted on 04/02/2012 8:15:43 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
When George Zimmermans lawyer, Orlando-based criminal defense attorney Craig Sonner, defended his client to TIME on Sunday night, he would not say whether he is gathering evidence for a trial. But he hints he is thinking ahead to a criminal case. I err on the side of preparedness, he says. Every time I take a case I prepare as though I am going to trial.
Sonner continues to remain mum on the specifics of the incident, like why police surveillance cameras showed Zimmerman with no apparent blood and grass stains soon after the shooting, or whether or not he has run tests to confirm that Zimmermans voice is calling for help on a neighbors recorded 911 call. That will be litigated, he responds to each question. Then, the refrain: George Zimmerman was acting in self-defense on the night in question, and when all the information is released, it will show that.

this case, assuming the original fact correct, should never involve an arrest or one second in court.
If he doesn't want to do that, he's doomed.
remember the bit in Starship Troopers?
Murderer caught in the morning, tried this afternoon, execution these evening...
>> what kind of mind would read Time?
Bite your tongue! Some poor schmuck in a doctor’s waiting room will be reading THIS VERY ARTICLE. In about 18 to 36 months, once the magazine has been properly “aged” in a sack at the doctor’s home... :-)
Headline is the understatement of the year, lol!
That’s an amazing graphic in your post#24. Totally amazing.
Conservatives will defend Zimmerman - BECAUSE we identify with a person being railroaded by the MSM.
Liberal elites don't know what that's like.
Holder and Obama are not concerned with 'what's right' they're concerned with advantage. The MSM doesn't care what's right or wrong they care about pushing a liberal elite agenda. Black poverty pimps care about ginning up black hate and white liberal guilt - guilt that open wallets...
Nope, we're it. We'll go to bat for Zimmerman - the Hispanic democrat - and he'll never vote for our side...
Here’s ABC’S Matt Gutman Biography and Photo....if you are right that it is he and the ‘family attorney’ agitating the case to where it is now.
I agree from what we currently know....however there are other cases where that too should have been so but public outcry did effectively work countrary to that.
At any rate the family and their supporters, be it whomever, are not going to let this rest. They will do whatever is necessary to keep this ball rolling....if for no other reason then the media's co-operation in seeing to it this remains an ongoing story to engage the public, and the revenues all have to gain by doing so.
And of course we know a certain individual has "political" gain as well...that remains to be seen when all is said or not said and done.
The woman on "Fox & Friends" this morning (forget her name) announced that "the authorities" have determined that the voice on the tape calling for help is Trayvon's. I assume she was referring to the two "experts" who said there is only a 48% likelihood that it is Zimmerman's voice (but no one seems to have a recording of Trayvon's voice for comparison's sake). People who aren't following the details may now think Zimmerman was beating up on Trayvon before the shot.
Crump was first contacted by a cousin of Trayvon Martin's father.... The cousin, a Miami attorney,.... was familiar with Crump's civil rights work in Florida.
Crump and his law partner, Daryl Parks, are Tallahassee-based.. 'personal injury attorneys..' who primarily handle wrongful death and negligence cases..... But their everyday work..'often involves civil rights issues'.
"While there may be a wrongful death issue,....' it involves in their eyes more than anything a civil rights cause' ... .......(Crump) has a passion for issues that have something to do with civil rights violations."........said James Messer, a Tallahassee attorney who serves on the board of the Tallahassee Bar Association with Crump.
' Attorney Crump's strategy' ..'for making the case international news' :
....began with a series of heart-wrenching news conferences in which Martin's parents spoke about their loss. ....Florida media outlets began to notice.
Then, ....'he enlisted'... U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown to help convince authorities to release 911 tapes,.... recordings that brought the case to the attention of national media.......
... He's further ratcheted pressure on authorities by organizing a series of rallies'.... and working with national civil rights figures such as 'Al Sharpton.'
Crump, who was in Washington for several days of meeting with members of Congress and appearing on national news shows. ....."We've been pushing relentlessly day and night." http://www.thegrio.com/specials/trayvon-martin/benjamin-crump-martin-family-lawyer-known-for-civil-rights-cases.php
Clearly, the death of Trayvon Martin has been manipulated and the media play out of the story has been orchestrated. But why?
I think Jesse Jackson, Al Shapton, the media and many others are doing a setup for Obama's reelection. Racial tensions will continue to mount over this and other incidents. The violence is already spreading and will peak during the heat of summer. At that point, Barack Obama will hold a "beer summit" of some sort and will miraculously heal the racial wounds. The medial will declare him a racial messiah and will sing his praises for bringing America together. He will run on a theme as a "unifier".
He can do this after he's arrested and charged,and odds are good he's getting charged. No one “Offs” the “presidents son” and walks free, especially with Sharpton fanning the flames. Sanford may require a sacrifice to Obama to remain standing.
This isn't just MSM. This is the Oval office publicly winking to Al Sharpton to go get the rope.
I think the town corrected that failure of basic information early on, too. The family was notified on February 27th. That is a non-contentious piece of information.
