George Zimmermans acquittal Saturday night on all charges in the killing of a black teenager, Trayvon Martin, sparked deep emotional reactions across the country Sunday, resurrecting an intense national debate about the role of race and racism in American life.

Declaring 'enough is enough' after one of the worst shooting sprees last week in Chicago, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders marched on the streets of the Windy City in protest against the wave of black-on-black crime plaguing that city, demanding tougher prison sentences for criminals -- WE INTERRUPT THIS 'TWILIGHT ZONE' EPISODE to bring you a reality-based news bulletin!
Liberals are stunned and dismayed that George Zimmerman was acquitted of all false charges. The Holder Justice Department is looking into filing spurious civil rights charges against Zimmerman because he was acquitted. And because, if Obama had a son, he wouldn't look like George Zimmerman.
The three main reasons for Zimmerman's acquittal were: (1) no evidence, (2) he was innocent, (3) no evidence. There were six women on the jury but Nancy Grace was not one of them.
The Zimmerman shooting case marked the first time in history that liberals weren't claiming that the gun acted on its own.
Interestingly, when the identities of the D.C. snipers became known -- one of them named Muhammad -- libbies were quick to forgive and forget, insisting the two were just misunderstood murderers. Besides, they only intended to shoot white people. With Zimmerman, libbies couldn't wait to lynch him.
Liberals constantly lecture and harangue conservatives about the sacredness of the jury system. They wanted to try KSM before a regular jury in New York City because there's no way a jury could get it wrong. Unless libbies disagree with the verdict. Harry Reid said that since Zimmerman was acquitted the Justice Department should prosecute him and that "this isn't over with." He also said, "I support the system." Say, maybe we should look into Harry Reid's activities and prosecute him. I support the system.
From the media-manufactured 'narrative', to the assumed "facts" about the case, all crumbled in the courtroom. Short list:
-- Liberals argue hysterically that Trayvon Martin was this innocent little darling armed with nothing more than Skittles and a soda. Evidence from the prosecution's own witnesses showed the innocent little, 6'2", 160-pound lad was very busy committing battery against Zimmerman that night. Moreover, angelic Trayvon got suspended from school for possessing a burglary tool and women's jewelry. (Jesse Jackson says Trayvon "was doing all the right stuff");
-- We hear endlessly from the media that this was a tragedy all the way around. The media yammer on and on about the tragedy of the death of Trayvon Martin. Obama, a self-proclaimed "black" man, called it a tragedy yesterday because the 'self-proclaimed Hispanic' Hispanic wasn't the one who got killed. It wasn't a tragedy. This was the PREVENTION of a tragedy. It would have been tragic had Trayvon succeeded in bashing Zimmerman's head on the cement enough times to have killed him. Or if an innocent man had been convicted to appease a mob;
-- Liberals insist Zimmerman should have stayed in his vehicle while a suspicious character fitting the profile of perps plaguing the neighborhood with a rash of burglaries was allowed to roam around. Just like every good neighborhood watch captain would do. Then it turns out that Trayvon had 4 whole minutes to get away (the time between Zimmerman losing sight of Trayvon and when the innocent pacifist lad decided to batter the man he allegedly was afraid of);
-- During the 14 months before the Zimmerman incident, that neighborhood had experienced about 8 burglaries. (Out of force of habit, Janet Napolitano noted the neighborhood had never been more secure);
-- Zimmerman 'tracking' Trayvon doesn't vitiate a claim of self-defense since what matters was Zimmerman's state of mind while getting pummeled. Contrast that with Ted Kennedy's state of mind while drowning a girl and Bill Clinton raping a woman);
-- Liberals claim the Zimmerman case shows why the 'Stand Your Ground' law must be repealed. The Zimmerman case wasn't based on Stand Your Ground, principally because Zimmerman's head was being slammed against the ground;
-- The prosecutors, consisting of expert mind-readers, accused Zimmerman of being a racist. They know this because the tolerant, saintly racial healer Trayvon Martin called him a "creepy ass cracker";
The record shows an FBI investigation a year ago concluded, after interviewing 30 people, there was no evidence the shooting was caused by racial bias or hatred on Zimmerman's part, so good luck bringing "civil rights" charges against him.
My Two Cents...
Sounds like racism:
George Zimmermans Black Ancestry is Revealed
George Zimmerman: the black, Hispanic, Peruvian, kind-hearted non-white, not-racist poster boy
George Zimmerman Has Black Roots
Monday-morning ping! Have a great week, y’all!
Their anger stems from having believed in a myth. A myth born from the lies of MSNBC, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and Black Panthers. If they would base their believes on fact they would know that justice has been done.
“believes” s/b “beliefs” (dang it)
ON one MSNBC show a black lib woman said :
“Every parent should be concerned that their kid will be gunning down while going to the store to get some skittles’
Sour grapes - they didn't prove their case and now they are trying to rationalize the outcome by vilifying the defendant ...
'Scuze me, but don't the prosecutors believe in the Constitution and the 5th Amendment - or are they so concerned with winning that they are pilorying Zimmerman because they didn't get a crack at him on the stand?
Another GREAT “My Two Cents...” John. Thank You.
The media will just have to fan the flames harder next time...
Good to hear from you, JH2.
There are certain entrenched interests who are aghast at their inability to force this incident into their own racist narrative: the media, the professional race baiters, and the Executive department that rode a wave of outrageous race-baiting into office. They will not be taking this happily.
Anyone with any common sense understands that this situation should never have made it to trial in the first place. The evidence clearly supported Mr. Zimmermans account of the events which indicated that he acted in self-defense. So all of the fussing that is taking place demonstrates mostly that the people still hammering on this lack common sense or are manipulating the situation for political gain.
Trayvon was angry.
Across the country, probably a few thousand people - in a nation of 350 million - took to the streets to protest the verdict. To describe the reaction to the verdict as “anger” - without qualification - is to ignore the untold millions who agreed with the decision.
Thank you for the laughs - I need it for my sanity.
This case was never intended to go to trial. Corey was sure that Zimmerman could not afford competent counsel, (that’s the reason for screwing up his legal defense fund and charging his wife with perjury).
She expected that without the money needed for a proper defense that Zimmerman would take a plea bargain, any plea bargain, so that they did not have to go to court.
Freepers and other like minded conservatives ponied up the money to allow him to get a good attorney, (in this case a pair of excellent attorneys). That forced them to go to trial and then causing Corey to play “hide the ball” with discovery hoping to make it impossible for Omara to put on a good defense.
They bet wrong, but I have seen many an innocent defendant go for the plea deal because of the lack of money for a good lawyer and the risk of a wrongful conviction resulting in most of their life spent behind bars.
If ya know what I mean.
Not surprising that prosecutors who put on a “peoples” show trial would fail to grasp the right not to incriminate yourself is part of the fabric of our jurisprudence.
Having cruised a few network news sites, there is about 99% support for the verdict. The only ones angry are the black racists that wanted to lynch Z.
Makes you wonder how he got that way? (/s)
That is so a racially-motivated homerun out of Leftist Tyranny Park. This show trial -a mockery of real justice - had everything stacked against an hispanic cracker - a crooked judge for one - and still his cracka half wins because the keystone mob-appeasers did not fix the jury.
Its a cursive conspiracy against putting an obviousl innocent whitish hispanic without a pressure group to organize rallies like daddy Obama did with the DoJ - allegedly.
having a trial at all was injustice
Well done, Sir!
Very good summation.
Racists 4 Trayvon do not have that 3d digit IQ most humans have
Are you serious? The corrupt bastards are still trying to attack this man in the media after their embarrassing loss?
GZ needs to file suit against anyone who opens their mouth now even if it’s thrown out of court.
Trayvon Martin, sparked deep emotional reactions across the country
Yea like what store can I smash into and steal me a TV.
That’s because they heard this type of statement from stupid, uninformed CNN and MSNBC commentators misrepresenting the facts.
I suppose without reasonable doubt like in China GZ would be on death row now.
Liberals want America to be like China. They all are Orwellian Maoists.
Liberals are hate crime mongerers in that case...
The hate crime bill is their creature, one diluting reasonable doubt of defendent behind subjectivity of what the person thought. It can be manipulated in terms of perceptions.
Rabid muscle twitch stubbornness is the only liberal cause. We should let them flail around until they turn blue and then leave them on the side of the road, not rescueing them like we had to at Woodstock.
A backlash is coming. I sense people are getting fed up. The age of deference and manners is about to end.
Moreover, if Holder thinks he’s going to do something with this, he’s mistaken. Not only did the FBI already pre-empt his stupid potential case, but he is opening up the government to yet one more massive lawsuit. NBC is already being sued by Zimmerman’s lawyers. I hope they bankrupt that grotesque organization.
You’re damn right anger flows. I’m getting sick of blacks getting the benefit of the doubt on everything. It’s reverse Jim Crow, reverse Reconstruction and it’s time to stop. In a sane world, the Justice Department would move in and PROTECT Zimmerman and INVESTIGATE any threat against his life. But noooooooo.
A backlash is coming. I sense people are getting fed up. The age of deference and manners is about to end.
I think the time is WAY past to enable them to experience TRUE equality. How about an equal chance to make your OWN GD living and stop extracting it from the taxpayers for starters?
How about an equal chance to get up in the morning and hustle to work, like everyone else??
Actually, if Holder decides to file a criminal civil rights case he will have Omara in Federal Court filing a motion to foreclose the charges based on the DOJ having sent their folks to Stanford to assist and help plan demonstrations to force Florida to file charges against Zimmerman. The DOJ can not be considered to have been seeking the facts when they were involved in getting the charges filed through attempts to stir up the Trayvon supporters in order to force a criminal case.
The obvious bias is there and the DOJ can’t get past it because of their actions in this case prior to the filing of charges against Zimmerman in Florida and the fact that they had an ongoing FBI criminal Civil Rights Violation investigation in process at the time.
There's something deeply disturbing about this refusal to acknowledge the basic right of an individual to self defense. The narrative focuses on the right to travel unimpeded, which everyone can identify with.
I would suspect that the percentage of Americans who have ever found themselves in a situation where they had a real fear of imminent death or great bodily harm is very low. Thankfully, Zimmerman's own words at trial successfully conveyed the experience of one who was.
If any profiled anyone, it was Martin profiling the “creepy ass cracker.”
The liberals are dismayed because they all but had the rope around his neck and he got away:
They pulled every trick out of their bag -- false accusations, pretentious outrage, overcharging, prefabricating, exaggerating minor details, depriving the accused of money with which to defend himself, ganging up, not allowing defenders to speak, going after his family, putting a bounty on their heads, portraying themselves as the victims as they legally gang up and beat the crap out of one lone man ......
and then to add insult to injury a multiracial jury of six women had the audacity to ignore them and vote for acquittal ....
and even when it's over and they had their kangaroo court with a kangaroo prosecution team and kangaroo judge they are even more incensed.....
Why am I not surprised.

This was a prewritten piece to continue to spread the party line propaganda.
Did I read 10,000 FBI hours devoted to this? You are correct that, in a sane world, it's a non starter. Note, I said "sane."
I am sure you mean the WaPo article, which JH used as a springboard to his excellent commentary. Right?
