Skip to comments.Attorney for Trayvon Martin family says teen not the one on trial

Attorneys quickened the pace in jury selection Wednesday in the George Zimmerman trial, as a lawyer for the family of Trayvon Martin stressed the teenager Zimmerman is accused of murdering was not the one on trial.
Juror B-35, a middle-aged black man who owns vending machines, described protests last year over Martin's shooting as "saber-rattling." He wondered why there weren't protests over the fatal shootings of other African-American men in Sanford, the Orlando suburb where Martin was killed in February 2012. He also said he believed Zimmerman deserved his day in court.
"I think they politicized it and made it a racial issue, and I didn't like that," said Juror "B-35. "I wasn't agreeing with the racial connotation."(continued)

This “trial” is turning out to be the farce everyone knew that it would be.
Well...DUH....that's because the perp is DEAD.
If he was alive, he SHOULD be the one who is on trial.
Is that clear enough for ya,you filthy lawyer?
“If he was alive, he SHOULD be the one who is on trial.”
No worries. The little puke was judged in the afterlife and the reward is someplace “warm”.
When the defendant is asserting self defense then the victim is also on trial.
Martin is on trial. The prosecution needs to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Martin did not act so as to place Zimmerman in reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily injury. So Martin’s acts are on trial.
I don't know all the Facts of the Case, but, this is a lynching of George Zimmerman in placating the inner-city tribal parasites, and Zimmerman incarcerated would be surrounded by a "Disproportionate Number of Minorities" (in DOJ/Civil Rights Dept. terminology).
He would not survive imprisonment with former hoodie-wearers......
This is what reasonable doubt for the defendent is, putting the plaintif on trial.
Funny how these black people who always wanted reasonable doubt for themselves and OJ Simpson now want to take it away in this case.
Minds of tyrants: only if I do it.
Indeed, choose content, get content. They want pop sex, they get with it pop suffering. You cannot have flesh without flesh problems and tweak it like butchers at that. MAny blacks in America are like waking into a bad drug withdrawal. Pain will be what remains.
P-Marlowe ~:” When the defendant is asserting self defense then the victim is also on trial.”
That’s true !
Especially since Travon already had stolen goods in his possession while in school. Too bad the goods weren’t linked to him by the police.
Imagine , it took a reporter to link the stolen goods to Travon, and they were found in his backpack.
Principal LEO concepts : motive , opportunity , timeing , prior history, ability , tools/property , etc.
Too bad the judge wouldn’t let prior MMA and fight club enter into court depositions/statements .
Nor the photo of the hand gun.
Incidently , after the shooting , I understand that the number of burglaries fell off dramaticly.
Where there is smoke ,..there generally is a fire !
Wow. I didn't expect to read that being said by a "middle-aged black man". Maybe suburban blacks are seeing the race card is hindering them being judged by their character since it makes everything about race.
Exactly right: “minds of tyrants,” wish I had thought of that expression
Yes, he pretty much is. It is necessary to know if he jumped Zimmerman.
That is what the whole case pretty much hangs on. And so it is necessary to know if he had a habit of jumping people and attempting to beat the tar out of them.
B-35 seems to have a brain; no doubt that’s sufficient cause for the Prosecution to seek his dismissal.
the stolen goods.....were they ever traced back to the proper owner?......
I thought I heard the family say that “Zimmerman, the one who murdered Trayvon”...on my local news tonight.
No “allegedly murdered”, no “thought to have murdered”...
Could be a set of multiple reasons there.
