Trayvon Martin Family Attorney: Racist White Jury Refused to Convict Zimmerman
Wednesday, July 17, 2013 | Kristinn

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:

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.

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.

Who's peers should this jury have been made up of?

Trayvon Martin was a teenager from Miami; George Zimmerman is an adult resident of Sanford. It was Zimmerman who was on trial.

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.

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.

Found a link to what might be the video report, titled "VIDEO - Martin family attorney Natalie Jackson says juror's comments show role of race", but the video won't play for me.

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."

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.

They really identified more with Zimmerman than they did with Trayvon.

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?

This 'race' thing is getting on my last nerve. I want dna tests on everyone to find out who is authentically black...or white...or whatever. No identities, just the racial breakdown. And I would bet that black people ain't and white people ain't either.

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 told George Zimmerman: Trayvon should NOT have gone for George Zimmerman's handgun.

Trayvon should NOT have pinned George Zimmerman down on the ground.

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 man’s 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 should NOT have had a police record FOIA Sunlight And More Trayvon Martin Police Records.

Trayvon should NOT have had Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin for parents, who didn't discipline their unruly son, when he needed it.
Then they refused to admit to themselves, at each step along the way toward this disaster, that their son, Trayvon Martin, had a real problem and needed professional help!

Had the situation been handled different by Trayvon Martin, he might still be alive.
But, NO !
It DID NOT go that way.

The texts and pics and the truth about this little angel needs to be put out there for people to see. Not that it would matter to the race pimps are the white libtards. I think they truly believe you should just take your beating from a thug then call the cops later if you live.
