Skip to comments.Eight Minutes You Missed: George Zimmerman’s Former Lawyer’s Press Conference
Posted on 04/17/2012 10:02:57 AM PDT by JoanVarga
Since April 11th, the MSM has known at least as much as George Zimmerman's former lawyer told them about the facts of the case. Those facts were woefully out of line with the Narrative. So the MSM just let us wonder about the strange moment and didn't find much else very interesting. Except that it was.
That's why you didn't see this.
It's part of the entire 45 minutes' presser. All you or I got to see was a somewhat strange assembly listening to some lawyers throwing their client under the bus, or publicly wondering whether they had been thrown under the bus. Either way, it's too bad, because that eight minutes should be no mystery to anyone who has followed the facts of the case, sans media filtering.
But it's more than that. The man calls out the race-mongers in no uncertain terms:
...we've had some people come to town who are only relevant in an area of racial strife. . . who, frankly, have a business model based on driving division in racial communities. . .
And he calls out one of Martin's attorneys as well:
. . .actually had an attorney for the Martin family who, as far as we know actually went to law school, get on the air and say, "They need to just go ahead and arrest him and let him prove his innocence in a court of law." Really? In the United States? I don't think so!
Note that he's a former police officer and legal police adviser. He absolutely has to school the young pups about law, offense, and how facts work toward truth. He really throws down. After watching it from the 28 minute mark forward, I almost think he resigned just so he could smack the press around. He really goes after them and especially after the feely-meely questions from the women. Full of goodness. No wonder the press doesn't like this guy.
Watch the whole thing from about 28 minutes on. It's a completely impolitic rant. Satisfying. Or just click link above for the short version of the facts of the case. Either way, I found it worth the time:
Full 45 minute press conference here.
Get the popcorn and enjoy!
thanks...ping for later
Thanks! I will watch the video later.
Could you provide where the unaired 8 minutes portion of the video are, so I can avoid watching 45 minutes?
Sorry, maybe that is the link to the 8 minutes...I’ll look.
You can also avoid 45 minutes (as I did) by watching the video from the 28 minute mark. Actually, after that 8 minutes, he’s just getting warmed up.
Did anyone, like Fox, show this, at least the shortened version? I don’t watch pro-romney Fox station anymore.
Get used to it, with your attitude you’ll be getting only state supported news after November anyway. Nothing to see here move on good useful idiot.
You have to wonder where all the Hispanics are, and why they are allowing this man to be crucified without response from them/
Zimmerman is alive today because he was armed and defended himself.
Angela Corey should be ashamed of herself for being cowed into bringing up Zimmerman on charges.
Great video, great attorney!
It’s about time someone other than the typical black racist are speaking out with actual facts. I hope this guy stays with Zim.
Thank you for posting this.
You’re welcome. I’m a giver. :o)
Send the eight minutes to Brett Bozell, Media Research Center www.mrc.org
He has done an excellent job of pointing out media bias and will bring it to the attention of everyone he can to right the misrepresentation. He was the force behind highlighting the ABC, NBC, and CNN Zimmerman errors.
Sorry about #5. I blanked there.
White folk better wise up to some of the black or Hispanic folk using their color as a weapon and deceitful tool.
Hispanics are much more astute about authority, appearances, and becoming a target. Plus, his last name is Zimmerman, not Martinez. Sorry, but that’s how shallow the MSM assumes its audience to be.
Hal Uhrig: This is a gun law consistent in about 23 or 24 other states. What is basically says is nothing new. If you are confronted by someone and physically attacked and in reasonable fear for your safety, you're entitled to defend yourself.
The statute has four little . . four stools . . . four legs to that stool. First, you have to be someplace where you're allowed to be. Both of them were. you've gotta be not doing anything illegal. As far as we know both of them were. And you cannot be the first physical aggressor. Not the first "Hey, I want to call you a bad name," or call you mama a bad name. The first physical aggressor. The only evidence and most of the forensics support the fact that that was Trayvon Martin.
When . . when that happens. When that happens . . .
[Reporter interrupts with something unintelligible about mortician]
Let me tell you what the mortician said about Trayvon Martin. What, what he said on his little announcement was, other than the bullet, bullet hole, I didn't find, ah, injuries on Trayvon Martin. I guess he was intending to say, I didn't see the, ah . . .
[Another reporter interrupts with something unintelligible]
Did you want to outshout me? Or did you want to go talk to somebody else?
I'm answering a question. You can stay out of it. What the, what the mortician said was I didn't see any injuries. [Reporters still murmuring] He didn't have a broken nose. He didn't have scars on the back of his head. [Obnoxious reporters] You won't find any photographs of those. You won't find a witness to come in and say that.
Silly me. I forgot to mention that Uhrig’s comments were in response to a reporter asking him (well, demanding of him) wasn’t this all because of guns, and wasn’t the gun law a bad law.
Unfortunately, these aren't Zimmerman's attorneys any longer.
Thanks, Scoutmaster. I especially liked his schooling on the idea of offensive speech not being an indication of physical aggression. (If it were, the folks in my nabe would all be locked up.)
1. Broken nose, concussion, abrasions on back of head.
2. Gun shot wound. No other wounds
SO which was the first aggressor?
Agreed. I was looking forward to seeing this guy in action.
This retired detective Sergeant, with 30 years of service, stands with Zimmerman.
This is a racist and politically driven lynching of an innocent man that took the only reasonable option available to him, while he was suffering grievous bodily harm and only when he recognized that he was about to die.
He only had one other option.... accept his own death. I would bet that Zimmerman did NOT want to kill this punk, he simply wanted to stop the threat..... and live.
If I were in the same situation, the bad guy better hope that in the ‘split seconds’ that I have to make a decision, that I figure out an alternative.... or he is likely going to die.
He should have kept this attorney.
Who was the camera dude in the red/brownish t-shirt and who in the audience was he filming?
Yes, I realized that now, and should have before commenting...This is what I get for trying to perform other tasks while reading this article at the same time.
Now that’s vigorous representation: “There is NO evidence, whatsoever, from the time that the earth cooled, to right this minute, that George Zimmerman is a racist...”
Made me snorfle! *puts drink down*
It’s well worth watching the entire presser, but it is especially instructional from about the 25 minute mark onward.
Because, "shut up," they explained. "It's about OUR narrative, not justice!"
Thank you for posting this. It does my heart good to hear this man speak.You provided a good service posting.
Thanks for the bump!
I’ve listened to the short clip three times now. It’s just refreshing to hear a man speak to the monolithic media in a way that cannot be misunderstood.
At this point, I'm going to play Devil's Advocate, merely so people will know what they may expect if they make the argument about Martin being the aggressor. Remember, this is only a test of the FR Broadcasting System.
"Yeah? But what if Zimmerman pointed his gun at Martin first? That's assault with a deadly weapon! HE was the first aggressor!"
End of test.
Note that saying Zimmerman had the handgun drawn is not only jumping to conclusions, but it's contrary to what we've been told is Zimmerman's story - that part of the wrestling on the ground including wrestling for a holstered handgun.
I'm a little concerned with how narrow Uhrig's definition of 'aggressor' is, but he's the one who knows Florida law. He said 'physical.' Don't know what he would say if Zimmerman did, in fact, point a handgun first. As I understand common law and as I read Florida common law and statutes, that would be little 'a' assault (a common law tort), and quite likely capital 'A' criminal Assault (Florida Statutes 784.011), and double caps criminal Aggravated Assault (Florida Statutes 784.021). Assuming, of course, something not in evidence (and we're told contradicted by Zimmerman): Zimmerman pointing a handgun first, without provocation and legal defense to do so.
The youngster’s don’t understand the concept of “devil’s advocate” anymore.
However, an unarmed teen facing a man with a drawn handgun is not likely to pummel him in the face and sit on top of him, providing a handy target. Plus, he would need both hands to slam Zimm’s head into the sidewalk, meaning he was not wrestling for a gun. He didn’t know there was a gun at that point.
No, thank you for posting this video.
A man holding a gun is not going to be decked in the nose and end up on his back in the grass with his head being pounded repeatedly on the sidewalk.....If he had pulled his gun he would have been holding it when the police arrived and Trayvon would still be alive.
The devil looses .......again.
Uhrig had another interesting quote when addressing the reporter who demanded that he say (it wasn't really a question to Uhrig) that this was all about guns and the law was a 'bad law' (I'm looking at my dogs as I type this: 'bad law. bad.' One of them is staring back at me: "What did I do?"). Uhrig said, at around 42:50:
"If you take the guns away from the good people, then the punks and thugs know you're unarmed and it's open season."
Hell, as the last of eight kids, my own mother rarely got my name right. My first name.
This is what they are taught in J-school: get in their face! Forget the 5 questions, jam the narrative and talking points.
The Fifth Column is made up entirely of the Fourth Estate. It all adds up to the 9th Circle of Hell.
That was worth the time to listen. Thanks.
Great arithmetic! Love it, detest the fact.
I was told there would be no math . . .
p for L
Watched the short version. This guy lays it out in clear concise terms. Thanks.
