Posted on 07/14/2013 3:29:26 PM PDT by MosesKnows
I had not heard of what new evidence surfaced that caused a criminal charge.
I have heard that a sitting Grand Jury was bypassed to avoid them from reviewing the evidence.
I had more concern before Zimmerman's acquittal of all charges but the curiosity remains. If there wasnt evidence for a charge right after the incident what changed four months later?
Was some power trying to suppress a charge or was some power trying to bring a charge?
Evidence of the liberal mob getting wound up for a slander fest.
“Wookie’s don’t live on Endor “
Is this worthy of a dedicated thread? You could have asked this same question on any of the trial threads.
Wookies dont live on Endor
I know one that lives in DC
There was no additional evidence, just a liberal executive branch with a chip against white people on its shoulder.
At least it wasn’t posted in Breaking News.
“If there wasnt evidence for a charge right after the incident what changed four months later?”
The original (white) police chief Bill Lee decided that there was not enough evidence to charge Zimmerman, so the Black City Manager fired him and installed the new (Black) police Chief Cecil Smith. Smith has said publicly “ we heard the concerns of the 30,000 demonstrators so we have charged Zimmerman because we heard you.” Pure Black Racism on display for all to see! I just hope that Zimmerman sues everyone who has had anything to do with this kangaroo court process and any media outlets that have used yellow journalism to provoke a fight.
Apparently it was evidence that persuaded state prosecutors to violate GZ’s 5th Amendment rights, and jump straight to the persecution.
Pardon me...I’m looking for the picture of the bunny with the pancake on his head.
Seems it was worthy, there are a lot of responses, mostly articulate ones too.
Its Floridas practice to require an indictment in a capital case. Not having a Grand Jury means theres no indictment, and no indictment means there wont be a capital murder charge. However, lesser charges remain in play.
You’re looking at this the wrong way. This wasn’t a criminal trial, it was a political show trial. Start thinking of it that way and everything will start making sense.
St. Trayvon was 17.
He liked Skittles (in case you didn’t hear).
He was wearing a hoodie.
What else you need to know? To the left that is all that is needed to proclaim someone innocent.....even if they punched someone in the nose, took them to the ground and were bashing their head into concrete.
Is this a rhetorical question? In other words, did you really have to ask? Where you been, boy?
Zimmerman was charged with 2nd degree murder less than two months after the incident. I’m not sure what evidence was there when the charge was made nor what additional evidence if any was later developed. In support of the charges, the State filed an affidavit of probable cause, stating that Zimmerman profiled and confronted Martin and shot him to death while Martin was committing no crimes.
The ONLY reason a charge was brought was because Holder and obama demanded it.
They’re not going to have control over a federal jury either. They are made up of the same pool of citizens as the State juries. This is a bad case for them, Holder would be well advised, from a tactical point of view, to let this one go. Much more to lose than to gain.
It’s coming out St. Skittles was not a choir boy, and that’s going to chase Holder off of this.
I think it was because the witch and her flying monkeys found more exculpatory evidence to withhold.
You got it!
This prosecution was purely political. The Obama Regime makes a lot of mileage by enraging blacks.
The trial threads are over, so some of us are “post-morteming.”
That’s normal. The question has general interest. We are now ready to go after the people and the process that lead to such a bad prosecution with otherwise pressing issues now behind.
I myself do not know the answer to the question despite studying this issue a lot. Do you? If so, tell us!
If you are having a bad day, I hope things get better.
“Please be nice to fellow Freepers.”
(Thanks for that link to that article. If that’s not posted you ought to post it.)
Members of Eric Holder's Justice Department were the ones who pressured the state to prosecute. Prosecutors chose to forgo the grand jury at the recommendation of Justice Department. All this was covered again and again and again and again on the trial threads. The verdict thread alone should tell you everything you would ever want to know.
I already know everything you just wrote, and it’s from multiple sources, not just the threads.
(I appreciate your concise summary though.)
But did you REALLY cover EVERYTHING? Are you SURE? If you are really SO sure that EVERYTHING is already covered and summarized and clear and accessible and validated about this, GREAT, make that clear to everyone instead of just saying, in essence, “go do research” to people who might have, for all you know, been out of touch, doing a mission in Uganda!
(EVERYTHING! I can just hear Ed McMahon now, only older people are likely to get that...)
However, the subject of this thread (as I take it, being perhaps a little forgiving on the subject) in some ways is more of a rhetorical question, designed to promote a FreeRepublic RE-EXAMINATION of the issue.
That is the kind is MICROSCOPIC RE-EXAMINATION scrutiny that FreeRepublic does! Don’t try to stop us!
Sometimes an ARRAY of sensors honing in on an issue provides better resolution!
That is why I COMMENT when someone (you) basically DENIGRATES an effort to promote a “group array” to investigate an issue that (only) YOU think is “cut and dried” but that may NOT in fact be so “cut and dried”!!!
And it is right when when we are about to get down to the serious issue of the prosecution of criminal actions by public officials.
This is a good thread.
I love the frequent South Park references around here.
And hey, it makes as much sense as anything in the prosecution’s case!
Don’t be distracted. The Federal government is going to use sleight of hand, to keep our attention focussed on riots and demonstrations like the ones in Oakland, San Francisco and elsewhere, to try and give Boehner and Cantor breathing room to force amnesty for illegal aliens down our throats. DON’T LET THEM DO THIS!!
