Why Florida Persists in the Zimmerman Prosecution
American Thinker ^ | March 11, 2013 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 03/11/2013 2:02:40 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Prodded by a president with a weakness for racial agitation and enabled by a politically complicit media, the State of Florida persists in a prosecution that can come to no good end.

The defendant is neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman. The charge is the second-degree murder. The potential outcomes range from major injustice, if Zimmerman is convicted, to mayhem in the streets, if he's acquitted. And the state plods on as though the angels were on its side. They are not.

The witnesses to the February 2012 shooting of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin are proving even more troublesome than the angels. The state's case took a hit last week when Witness #8, Martin's alleged 16-year-old sweetheart "Dee Dee," was caught in falsehoods so flagrant that even the Trayvon-friendly Orlando Sentinel noticed them. Conceded the headline, "Lawyer: State's main witness in George Zimmerman murder case lied."

On January 15, 2008, Nifong filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.[89] He listed assets of almost $244,000 and liabilities of over $180.3 million, the bulk of which being six $30 million "unsecured nonpriority claims," one for each of the six members of the 2005–2006 Duke Lacrosse team suing Nifong, among others.

Florida prosecutors should be worried.

It’ll be hard to imagine any jury being able to come to an agreement on this. I could see two mis-trials easily.

“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” President Barack Obama said on March 23 of that year. In so saying, Obama gave the White House imprimatur to a politically irresistible campaign, one that both stoked the grievances of his racially sensitive base and energized his party’s gun control advocates. That the shooting took place in Florida, the most highly contested state in that year’s presidential election, made its politicization all the more inevitable.

It would take the media nearly two weeks to learn that their great white defendant was Hispanic and a registered Democrat at that, but by that time the train had long since left the station, and the railroading had irreversibly begun. Zimmerman would have to do.


To this President and the Democrats in general, the facts don’t matter at all only the perception of the facts that they generate does. This applies it appears to EVERYTHING that they say and do. It’s no wonder that for thinking, rational people that Liberalism and its adherents appear to be afflicted with a mental disorder that appears to be untreatable.

And because of that mental disorder the sanest, safest thing to do is to stay as far away from them as a person can. That mental disorder appears to be very contagious, as can be seen by what happens to conservative politicians once they get to D.C.

Obama’s obsession plus fear of race riots. Simple.

The democrat media will insure race riots because they refuse to inform the public of what a thug the dead perp was. Several 0bmama sons will likely harm innocent whites and a few will get their just rewards.

Race riots are a possibility when George Zimmerman is ruled Not guilty./
Course this being Forida, we do have that pesky stand your ground law.
And thanks to obammy, many more folks have guns and are ready to defend themselves.

Was Trayvon on the phone at the time Dee Dee says he was or not? The phone records exist. That alone should blow her story out of the water.

While saying much, the first sentence fails when it simply calls the Bamster’s central Commie tenet “a weakness” on racial agitation. I know Cashill was trying to turn a phrase but failing to challenge the reader into clear thinking does not serve him in building the larger thesis, IMO. Cashill’s previous writings have shown him to have some level of awareness of the facts in The One’s Commie roots so I don’t understand his shyness in so stating.

The second part of the first sentence on is right on the mark and the article does an excellent job of supporting that. The level of media complicity and the prosecution’s inability to recognize either facts or perjury is just jaw-dropping.

After being found not guilty, Zimmerman will have to change his name and appearance and move to an undisclosed location.

The narrative at the link is much more fleshed out....containing details I never heard before, no doubt omitted purposefully by the media.

In an otherwise outstanding article, the author did leave out one important fact....George Zimmerman is 1/4 black.

The article was interesting. I can’t say it’s good. They dangle the Dee Dee will never appear in court storyline and never tell me why. That seemed like a central point in the story and i would have liked top have read more on that.

Jack Cashill does an excellent job of summarizing where the case is at this point and how it got here.

The inability of the Martin family, their lawyers, their pr team, the Florida governor and attorney general, the prosecution, NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, the Miami Whoreworld, the Whorelando Slantinel, and the low information black grievance industry to all admit that they were wrong has resulted in many of them doubling down on their stupidity.

“The democrat media will insure race riots because they refuse to inform the public of what a thug the dead perp was.”

I guess they’re welcome to try to incite, but they will not be dealing with people like the Jews in New York City that think peace signs and white doves will keep the bad people away - no, they’ll be dealing with REAL HARDWARE and people ready to use it - along with a set of laws that virtually allow that use without risk (when justified, of course).

So, yes, they may try a small test riot (at most), but I think they’ll get the message very quickly and figure out that it’s not so easy in Florida...

And that ALWAYS been one of our major reasons to oppose gun control.

It’s nice to read a writer who is objectively using the last names (e.g., “Zimmerman was...”, “Martin was...”) of both involved parties instead of the liberal media’s slanted approach of using Zimmerman’s last name but Trayvon Martin’s first name. The little things matter.

Several months ago I heard on a local (Florida) radio show that Zimmerman is a registered RAT, has/had a obama bumper sticker and his father/family were big time donors to zero.....at that point I lost all interest and dont care what happens to him...........

THAT is also exactly why I purchased my two paramilitary rifles, along with them being cool guns that are loads of fun to shoot.

I don’t, either. Not about him personally. You vote Dhimmicrat, don’t come crying to me about the consequences when they happen to YOU.

On the other hand, if they can do it to Zimmerman, they can do it do you. Standing against abuse of the letgal system is in our interests, even if our “hero” is not one.

The quote is just from Mike Nifong's Wiki page. It seemed like it took forever to get justice. But in the end Nifong was disgraced, disbarred and sued into bankruptcy for his part in the 2006 Duke University lacrosse case.

He did then exactly what Angela Corey and others are doing in the Zimmerman case now.

And of course all the jackwagons like Al Sharpton and the lying news media, that make their money off of race baiting, all quietly crawled away after the Duke team was cleared...only to start screaming again the minute they got wind of the Zimmerman case.

Zimmerman is to be sacrificed on the alter of political correctness in order not to see the ghettos burn.

Was Trayvon on the phone at the time Dee Dee says he was or not? The phone records exist. That alone should blow her story out of the water.

That's why the prosecution excluded the phone records of that day from what they gave to the defense. Does that answer your question?

That site he mentioned is the go-to site for the case. I’ve posted this before:

For those just starting to pay attention (e.g., the local Florida press) to “Witness 8”, here’s some very good work — done almost a year ago — showing that “DeeDee”

- did not consider herself to be Trayvon’s “girlfriend”
- could not possibly have been on the phone for him for multiple hundreds of minutes that day, and maybe not at all
- could not possibly have gone to the hospital (yes, this was well known by April 21, 2012)

My recollection is that the case was so obviously non-existent that they made themselves scarce long before that. The only person who hung on to the end was Nancy Grace, who, on the day they were cleared, showed the good grace to admit she was wrong by taking the first unscheduled leave from her show in three years.

Problem is, we, as a society, are not seeing riots as the opportunity they are to chlorinate the gene pool, and to remove a bunch of liabilities from the social ledger...

Yes, but the prosecution is stonewalling the release of the records. We must railroad Zimmerman because Saint Trayvon is a victim of a racist facility.

Legally, how can they get away with that? Don't they have to share exculpatory evidence?

Actually black incitement, the democrats set out to create racial militancy in black voters almost 50 years ago, and they strive to keep them at fever pitch, it is the only way that you can win the devoting of 90 and 95% of such a huge group of voters, you must make them identify as a tribe, a race, or a group, unified against an enemy.
