Skip to comments.But What about Justice for Zimmerman?

I keep thinking of an episode of the 1973 TV show Kojak: The Marcus-Nelson Murders. Homicide detective Kojak suspects that the black teenager accused of murdering two white girls is being framed by his fellow detectives.
The case gets a lot of media attention; politics and careers enter the mix. The frightened accused black kid pleads his innocence to detective Kojak who believes him. Kojak educates the defendant to the cold, harsh reality of the situation; he informs the kid that despite his innocence, the case has become such a political hot button, and because the police held the kid in jail for so long, he must be found guilty of something.
I see this same scenario developing in the Martin/Zimmerman case.
Most Americans desire a fair and just outcome when it comes to this tragedy. But Lord help us if the evidence proves Zimmerman innocent. If Zimmerman is ruled not guilty and allowed to walk, I foresee Rodney King-type riots in the streets. Thus, is Zimmerman's fate already sealed? Will a jury decide that Zimmerman must be declared guilty of something?
While Al Sharpton, the New Black Panthers, and all of the other racist race-hustling usual suspects clamor for justice for Trayvon Martin, I wonder if justice is even possible for George Zimmerman.
Tragically and frighteningly, we live in a time in which the law and truth appears to be losing relevance in America....

does anyone have the recent list of crimes involving black on white “in the name of trayvon martin?”
Also, I have been looking for one GOOD artcle that ‘tells the accurate facts’ of the case to date in a non-biased manner.
Talking with others, I can’t believe the misconceptions out there. The original reporting in the case has really biased people.
Down with White Power!
Power to the People!
Whitey must pay!
Justice for Coloreds!
Content of character is a tragic notion....
It seems the modern PUBLIC school system promotes “get tough or die” in the cities. When an 17-18 year old takes that behavior out in “normal” public areas, the result is as we see.
Martin would definitely have beat down anyone confronting him anywhere. It was his nature, same as a dog in a pack.
Never use facts and logic when talking with a lib.
Any facts that get in the way of the narrative that they have chosen, will be ignored or berated.
Look at global warming, oil "depletion", seas rising, ice melting, pick any of their causes and then check out the facts...total opposites.
It would behoove the misguided folks over at DU that the rioters will make no distinction between them and Freepers.
The judge will throw it out with prejudice.
I recall it quite well, and believe me, it frankly irritated me that people threw so much suspicion on him for doing what he should have been doing as a security guard - telling people to be careful around an unattended package, which often was the means for delivering a bomb when the terrorist isn’t suicidal. And he also did the right thing by reporting it. But then, if he really was a terrorist, wouldn’t he not be warning people to stay away from an unattended package?
>>The judge will throw it out with prejudice.<<
We can always hope that the judge has the bravery to do the right thing.
I have seen plenty of black on black, plus the regular gang wars, between the Asian, Black, and Latino gangs in California. If anything, well there’s a greater threat to people in these racial groups from a person with a similar racial background than from a random supremacist bigot, although frankly, all violence should be equally abhorrent. Frankly, I read the news nowadays, instead of bother watching it.
That being said, prosecuting Zimmerman is nothing more than a classic example of political opportunism.
We need to elect a better quality of person... that's the key. Switch the incentives away from glad handers who need their egos massaged constantly - and are gullible to boot. That's what we're getting now - a nice class of aggressive but 'pleasant' used car salesmen types.
Liberal haters are nuts - you know that, right?
“I spent some time at DU looking at the Trayvon threads.”
Did you shower afterwards?
We’re studying mass hysteria in my sophomore English class in connection with “The Crucible.” My smarter students recognized immediately that the reaction of many in the Treyvon Martin killing is a classic manifestation of mass hysteria. All of the elements are present, up to and including the persecution of innocents, such as those I’ve read about who have been attacked by black youths in “response” to Treyvon’s death. In place of the unseen demons and witches, we have the unseen white racism and privilege.
At least a few people will grow up relatively immune to this kind of insanity. Not enough, though.
