(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.
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
Commentator was Aisian Valerie or Victoria (Fox)
It will all come out at the Sanction hearing. MOM is augmenting the complaint now
Or ridicule him. :)
He should be disbarred for being so reckless.
He is clearly out of control with hate and bigotry towards Latinos.
Why do Democrats hate Latinos so much?
wow what did he say about why he would have voted Not Guilty?
That’s good to hear, because I’m getting sick of this one sided nonsense and GZ’s side needs to fight back a little if he’s ever to have a somewhat normal life.
Crazy Ass Crackermobile will not be caught!
C'mon Eric Holder!
Shots! Shots Shots!
HA HA HA HA!
Oh those pesky little details.
Thank you for posting this - sums it up perfectly. I wish all the race baiters would accept the facts so we could move on. The jury has spoken, dammit.
Unfortunately, it’s going to be a long hot summer.
Okay. I should know the answer to this - but, who is in the backseat with West?
BTW - best gif ever!
He’s on Greta now
thanks. I’m at work :((
Ohhhh. Ok. Well he’s a very level-headed fellow.
He talked only about the facts and evidence ..he doesn’t understand the hoopla over race in the case-he didn’t see it. I’m sure it will be on YouTube later.
