Posted on 03/26/2012 3:08:53 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The Justice Department may bring a hate crime charge against the man who shot and killed black teenager Trayvon Martin if more evidence surfaces indicating the shooter action's were motivated by racial bias, legal experts and former prosecutors say...
"It sounds pretty obvious to me," said Donald Tibbs, a Drexel University law professor who has closely studied race, civil rights and criminal procedure. "If that was a racial epithet that preceded the attack on Trayvon Martin, we definitely have a hate crime."

Little Trayvon felt disrespected. That far outweighs whatever happens to someone named “Zimmer-Man” (As Rev. Al kept calling him.) Name guilt. No other facts need apply!
They say it is at the 2:21 of the call Zimmerman made. He says f***ing ????? ...I have tried and tried and I cant make it out.
And I have listened to Elton John’s song over and over, and there is no way you can convince me that “hold me closer, Tony Danza” is actually “hold me closer, tiny dancer.”

Hopefully everyone understood that was a mondegreen joke. People will hear what they want to hear.
This is where I thought this case would end up, the Feds on a witchhunt.
There is some wind or other noise in Call 1 in the 911 call list on the Sandord web page on this event that some are interpreting as George Zimmerman saying “effing coon” under his breath.
It is a stretch, but these people are out to create a racial incident.
Although there must be some agenda, I cannot for the life of me figure out why the Dems would want to incite an African American/Peruvian American conflict. Seems to me that the Latino vote would be of great importance in the upcoming election, as the African American vote is already theirs. Will be interesting if the South American and Mexican (Hispanic/Latino) leaders weigh in on this if they haven’t already. Why is Zimmerman being portrayed as a “Cracker”? I have to be missing something somewhere. Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmmm
Well now we have heard from the legal department of the Black Panthers.
Donald “Call me Mr. Tibbs” a black law Professor has spoken.
Not that he is racist in any way, he has just spent his life
looking at the black side of Civil Rights law and propagating his own form of racism.
Hey Donald. Not biased are you? LMAO
hahahahahaha! That’s good!
When I was a teen I got into a HUGE fight with a fella over a song. It was the Eagles—Take it to the Limit— I insisted it was *put me on the highway*... he insisted it was *p***y on the highway*.
Looking back...I think he enjoyed aggravating me. ugh
First thing, before elevation to a hate crime, is was there any crime whatsoever committed, and right now, it looks like there probably wasn’t.
There is simply no evidence whatsoever of any crime here.
And that is what Sharpton is implicitly admitting:
"Any time you have a pattern of engagement based on someone's having a particular group in mind, that qualifies for hate crime inquiry," Sharpton told The Associated Press
This is frightening and Orwellian. It is repugnant to the entire spirit of Anglo-Saxon justice and to United States Constitution. Whatever happened to the presumption of innocence? The despicable behavior of the press, especially the talking heads on the Sunday shows, demonstrates the real danger these hate crime laws pose to law-abiding Americans.
God help us if Rev. Sharpton can try us on what he thinks we think.
I would be careful where you eat out these days. Remember Jessie Jackson brags about spitting in whites food.
Isn’t Obama one half CRACKER? Hmmmmm!
“There was no telling what Bammy will twist this year to try to stay as Golfer-in-Chief.”
How about a complete meltdown of the EBT card system on 11:59pm Oct. 31, 2012? That gives a good six days of rioting before election day; plenty of time to “suspend” voting indefinitely.
Black hatred of white culture provoked the attack on Zimmerman and resulted in the Boy’s death. Trayvon erred in justice by brutally attacking the wrong man.
He’s too redneck to know what a dip he is, eh? Or would he be a urbanneck?
Up North they’re all a bunch of backwards racist urbannecks, ya know. Yo...http://www.lyricspond.com/artist-kurupt/lyrics-hos-a-housewife (warning that is x-rated)
If you are black you can say whatever and get rich singing whatever the hell you want.
You’re white— you’re down as racist, if lucky...otherwise it’s a hate crime, baby.
If you must use deadly force to defend yourself, any verbal outburst is pretty much acceptable, and of no consequence,I would think.
If Mr Zimmerman is acquitted of any wrongdoing, and yet some kind of trumped up “hate” charge is brought against him, then it is time to give these fools the war the think they want IMHO.
When the race-baiters started on this thing, they probably looked at the last name “Zimmerman” and decided that its owner was a non-Hispanic white, probably of German or Jewish descent.
Like many other people in Florida, Zimmerman in fact is from a family that has both Hispanic and non-Hispanic members. Calling him a “cracker,” however, is going a little far...but that’s what they want to see in this.
Finally, blacks and Hispanics have little in common. Outside of certain inner city gang areas, Hispanics are just like any immigrant group, learning the language, acclimatizing and getting ahead, and they also tend to value family and church. Lower class black culture, on the other hand, creates people who aren’t going anywhere, and there’s a lot of hostility towards Hispanics on the part of blacks, who feel that they “deserve” to be given what Hispanics are actually working for.
So I think the race baiting contingent really doesn’t care what Zimmerman’s background is, just simply that he’s not black. Because if he had been black and shot this kid, it would simply have been just another day in the neighborhood and they wouldn’t have cared.
“You are right one only has to be accused.
I would be careful where you eat out these days. Remember Jessie Jackson brags about spitting in whites food.”
I’m glad the situation didn’t result in a horrible outcome for your relative. I seldom eat out, and that incident had a big impact on that.
Interesting source. Shame on the Latino community if they don’t start making some noise about this.
