Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin Family Attorney: Racist White Jury Refused to Convict Zimmerman
Posted on 07/17/2013 5:23:41 PM PDT by kristinn
(Note: This article is a paraphrase of what Jackson said. I was not able to transcribe the segment she appeared on.)
Natalie Jackson, co-counsel to the family of slain teen Florida Trayvon Martin, said today that the almost all-white jury that acquitted the man who shot Martin was racist.
Jackson made the remarks to CFNews13, a cable news outlet of Central Florida cable TV provider Brighthouse Networks, on the special report 'George Zimmerman Trial: Beyond the Verdict'".
Jackson said that she initially voiced her approval for the jury of five white women and one mixed-race woman because she wanted Americans to see if the nation had made racial progress so that an almost all-white jury could convict George Zimmerman in the February 26, 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
Jackson said the millions of people around the country outraged at the acquittal of Zimmerman proves the jury was racist. She said is going to use the outrage at the verdict to effect change.
Jackson is an independent Orlando lawyer who works with the Tallahassee firm of Park & Crump to represent the family of Trayvon Martin.
Parks & Crump lawyer Jasmine Rand, followed by firm co-founder Daryl Parks exposed themselves as leftist agitators engaged in "social engineering" in successive interviews with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. While both questioned the wisdom of the Zimmerman jury, they did not go as far as Jackson did in her criticism.
No video of the interview is online as of now. Also during the special, Jesse Jackson said the almost all-white jury acquitted Zimmerman because of "cultural bias", a dog-whistle for calling them racist.
Hey Kristinn, not sure if this has made a splash yet but from new interview today:
Jeantel: “My grandmother is white so how could I be racist?”
BTW-George Zimmerman’s grandfather is black
if I were on that JURY I would SUE HIM!!!! That is SLANDEROUS..PERIOD!!
And the OJ Jury was racist for not convicting OJ..someone call the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaambulance on these crybabies
FYI. I’ll keep looking to see if CFNews 13 puts the interview online.
Oh my, it seems that there are more attorneys than just those in Crump’s firm frustrated, angry and depressed to see the financial windfall of their dreams slip-sliding away.
It does my heart good to see it.
It’s hard to keep track of all the “racists” without a score card.
This is the current situation. If you’re NOT willing to act based on race — then you are a racist.
She’s a racist because she wanted Zimmerman convicted simply because Trayvon “Thug” Martin was Black.
So we’re even for OJ.But then the cases weren’t nearly identical.For one thing Nicole wasn’t seen straddling OJ beating the tar out of him.And she was essentially decapitated whereas NoLimitsNigga was shot...once..the *only* injury *he* sustained.
and they need to be told again Trayvon Martin was not on trial
Trayvon Martin was a teenager from Miami; George Zimmerman is an adult resident of Sanford. It was Zimmerman who was on trial.
Interestingly he didn’t call them creey A$$ white crackers, but I am sure he thought it, since only a truley uninformed person would say it out loud...
Bullcrap. She "voiced her approval" of that all-woman jury because she thought their emotions would get the better of them, and they would exact vengeance for the "murdered child."
Let this witch and all of like mind screech and scream.
It’s easy, if you are not a BlacKKK communist you are a racist.
Pray for America to Wake Up
TM wants a jury of his peers but the law clearly states its a jury of the peers of the defendant that determines the verdict
Wish all who bitch would be confronted by that fact each time they opened their mouth.
This behavior should lead to disbarment. Lawyers have no business criticizing a jury like this.
Jesse Jackson quote found here:
As he arrived Wednesday morning at Orlando International Airport, Jackson said he was upset over the verdict, adding even though Zimmerman ended up not using Florida's Stand Your Ground law in his defense, Jackson still wants to see the controversial gun law repealed.
Jackson and Martin Luther King III both said they believe the jury was not diverse enough to get a fair assessment of what happened the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.
"We've got to find a way to ensure that everyone in this nation is treated in a just and humane way with our system of justice," King III said.
"They had a whole white prosecution staff. They should have had white, black and female [prosecutors]," said Jackson. "No blacks on the jury, and now they're showing their own cultural biases. They really identified more with Zimmerman than they did with Trayvon."
Five of the six members of the all-female jury that acquitted Zimmerman were white. The sixth was said to be mixed-race. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda had identified her as a "black/Hispanic woman."
These morons wanted this case tried on race and race alone. The black juror the prosecution excused watched Fox News Big freaking deal. Wonder if the others were asked what news stations they watched?
Someone needs to remind him it was the Martins lawyers that rejected a black/Afro American juror........so who’s the racist
‘Jesse Jackson said the almost all-white jury acquitted Zimmerman because of “cultural bias”’
Jackson is right you know.
Us Crackas just don’t know enough to take our ass-whuppin’ when it is our turn...
It’s creepy white. AZZcracker The later being one word used to describe a homosexual Thus the concern for Z being a rapesf and TM calling Z a HOMO ( MSM bleeped it out in the walkthru day after the incident )
TM was homophobic and gonna beat down Z
Blacks are consumed by racism, so they project it onto everyone else.
Are there any attorneys who AREN’T co-counsel to the Martin family??
I spoke to someone at the CFNews 13 newsroom. He said the likely problem with the online video is that it is being uploaded and to check back in a while.
Of course they did. They're all adults from the same community as the defendant. That's what "jury of your peers" means.
If the prosecution were so concerned, then why didn't he file a motion for a change of venue to someplace more neutral?
man, that shirt is begging to be photoshopped!
That slab-faced prosecutor needs to be disbarred and jailed.
I got a good chuckle out of her use the phrase ‘almost all-white jury’ today.
I guess they wanted Martin to be killed by blacks!! (At least it wouldn’t be in the news, then)
Alternate juror on Hannity now..oops it’s over now.
It was a man and he would have voted not -guilty.
It was an interview with one of our local stations. I’m sure it will be on YouTube later. This was just an excerpt.
Well, it didn’t take them long to start attacking the jury. Very predictable. They can’t admit they pressured the state into prosecuting a case where there was no case.
Trayvon should NOT have broken George Zimmerman’s nose.
Trayvon should NOT have given George Zimmerman two black eyes.
Trayvon should NOT have repeatedly slammed George Zimmerman’s head on the pavement.
Trayvon should NOT have gotten suspended from school for possessing traces of marijuana.
Trayvon should NOT have stolen 12 pcs of ladies jewelry, and a mans watch.
Trayvon should NOT havekept a flat head screwdriver described as a burglary tool, in his backpack.
Trayvon should NOT have hag a criminal past of theft, hiding and acting suspicious.
Trayvon should NOT haveencouraged ... fellow thugs to commit murder with the tweet, Plzz shoot da #mf dat lied 2 u!.
TRAYVON MARTIN: - Hey, are you following me?
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: - Ummm, yes.
TRAYVON MARTIN: - May I ask why?
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: - Well, uh, we've had a number off robberies in this neighborhood lately, and I don't recognize you...
TRAYVON MARTIN: - Oh, well, I'm Travon Martin, I'm spending the summer at my uncle's in unit 12. I expect you'll see a lot of me this summer.
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: - OK, thanks, good to know. I'm George Zimmerman, by the way.
They shake hands.
TRAYVON MARTIN: - No, thank you for keeping an eye out for your neighbors!
she is the racist. and as a racist, she must look at the trial this way, and cannot any other way, because if the jury actually did their job, it will shatter her racist black privilege worldview.
Bring your smart@ss to MY home and call me racist, lawyertrash.
Bigoted blowhards must get extra points in what passes for law schools these days.
“Alternate juror on Hannity now..oops its over now.
It was a man and he would have voted not -guilty.”
Interesting. Was he hiding in the shadows on Hannity?
Sorry sonny but you’ll never be a winner if you always blame your failures on race. You’re always going to be a loser.
Most definitely in the shadows.
It was part of an interview from a local TV station to be played later tonight
