Stand Up for Trayvon Martin By Amending 'Stand Your Ground' (Crump wants 'Trayvon Voters')
The Washington Post ^ | Friday, August 16, 2013 | Benjamin L. Crump

Posted on 08/17/2013 3:40:32 PM PDT by kristinn

As I travel the country, many people tell me they wish they had been on the jury in the criminal trial of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. I tell them that although they did not have a vote in those proceedings, they do have a vote in establishing Trayvon’s legacy.

This vote, your vote, will be historic. It starts when you sign the Change.org petition by Trayvon’s family to amend “stand-your-ground” laws in 21 of the 31 states where they are on the books. It continues when you cast your vote in the 2014 midterm elections and each election cycle beyond until we make history by passing a Trayvon Martin amendment to the stand-your-ground laws in every state that has them. These actions will make you part of new voting bloc: The Trayvon Martin voter.

SNIP

Throughout history, positive change has come from tragedy. Society has learned that with time and through action, protests and national movements, change is possible. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 began in large part because of the brutal murder of another unarmed black teenager, Emmett Till, in Money, Miss., in 1955. It took nearly a decade before this tragedy resulted in the passage of the historic civil rights legislation. Emmett’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley, eventually got to see something positive emerge from something very painful: an acknowledgment that her son’s death was not in vain.

The 1963 murder of Medgar Evers, another unarmed African American, led to positive change. During his life as an activist, Evers organized voter registration campaigns, demonstrations and boycotts to end Jim Crow laws in Jackson, Miss. His death was an influence for the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Sorry. I’m not going to surrender the right to defend myself and my family for Martin and/or this retard. I’ll “stand up” for myself and my family, thank you.

ALL of this translants as follows:

Cump “because of stand your ground my law firm can not sue innocent people in civil court. I want money from civil suits after not guilty verdicts.”

Crump is an ambulance chaser
stand your ground in tort reform
ambulance chasers hate tort reform
crump hates stand your ground.

where is the bar investigation of his lies and misconduct in this fiasco?

The problem is....if Tray had killed George....as he intended....he would have used "stand your ground"....and he had two witnesses who said George was following him.

Of course most black murders are black on black with the no snitch rule...

“As I travel the country, many people tell me they wish they had been on the jury in the criminal trial of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.”

I wished I could tell you that too, but did you just talk to black people who hate whitey?

Too bad blacks can’t see how cynically they’re being manipulated. The Democrats are using a non-issue to keep blacks on the plantation.

The majority of voters SUPPORT "Stand Your Ground" laws.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3050402/posts

If the 'rats want to run for office on a platform of changing state laws to allow wannabe gangsters to assault passersby, I'd think that's an excellent idea, and I'd strongly encourage it! (If they want to hold their collective breath until they turn blue, that's a good idea, too, and likely to be just as effective.)

Stand up for George Zimmerman.

Like thier philosophical brethren in the Middle East , the DNC wages sectarian violence for power.

Zimm for Senate!

We are all George Zimmerman.

Letting lawyers make laws is like letting doctors make diseases.

Get this guy out of politics, along with all the other lawyers. Starting with Zero.

Zimmerman used the only means he had to defend himself during the brutal attack and perhaps save his life.

What if he was only able to find a rock instead and hit Tratvon upside the head with it?

He used what was available at the time.

Crump the crook. Let me tell you what, punk. I don’t care about the race of ANYONE...if they’re bashing my head into a sidewalk, they’ll get shot.

End of story, race baiter.

crump’s business income (see ambulance chasing) was CRUSHED by tort reform in stand your ground.

Civil immunity is poison to his wallet.

he only cares about money.
