I wanted the weekend to see where things were going to shake out with the whole Zimmerman not-guilty verdict. As you may know if you are a regular follower of this blog that I believe that Zimmerman acted within the constraints of the law when he shot an aggressor who was trying to murder him.
Whether the events that led to that moment were of the best choosing, I withhold judgment one way or the other. But, I do not believe Zimmerman threw the first punch and I do believe that he had one two choices when he was pinned to the ground, either get beaten to death or shoot.
A jury acquitted Zimmerman of all charges despite the best efforts of a Judge who was completely in the tank for the prosecution as well as pressure from DC in the form of the Department of Justice rallying people against George Zimmerman.
Think about for a moment. The Department of JUSTICE facilitated mob rule in order to swing public opinion in a trial that was still in process. Justice may be blind but apparently the DOJ can still see colors.
Which brings us to Obama and his flunkies “respecting the jury’s verdict” by pushing to retry George Zimmerman. I guess when you don’t like the result and banked a lot of political capital on lynching the Latino kid because the guy assaulting him “looked like your hypothetical son” respect for double jeopardy and the constitution in general takes a hike.
But then again, is anyone surprised at this point that Obama uses the Constitution to wipe his own ass?
Obama and his cabal of race baiting sycophants are mulling whether to try Zimmerman again for the same crime with different wording. Saying that, even though the jury acquitted him of 2nd Degree murder (the one that specifically means that his acts were imminently dangerous to another and evincing a depraved mind regardless of human life) somehow Martin’s civil rights were violated because Zimmerman is a racist.
Double Jeopardy is supposed to protect us from EXACTLY this type of thing. Because make no mistake, this is simply the powers that be not liking a verdict and wanting to try again until they get the conviction they crave.
Here’s what a petition from the NAACP had to say as they implores the Justice Department to act:
“Today, with the acquittal of George Zimmerman, it is time for the Department of Justice to act”
That cannot be read any other way than to mean, “We didn’t like the outcome, keep trying him again until he’s guilty”.
I mean, this is middle east dictatorship type action here. At what point does the legal system just completely become a dog and pony show with the outcome predetermined and the only question is how many trials it will take to get there?
Fortunately for Zimmerman, with being found not guilty he at least won’t have to fear a civil suit from the Martin family as the “Stand your ground law” gives him immunity with regards to paying damages through a civil suit. But that doesn’t mean he won’t be bankrupt by a malicious federal civil rights case.
If anyone should be suing and seeking a civil trial it is George Zimmerman. After watching the circus of a trial that the prosecution presented, in which 80 percent of their witnesses were vouching for Zimmerman, it seems clear that this is a case of malicious prosecution brought on by political pressures and as such Zimmerman should be reimbursed for his legal fees and HIS civil rights being violated.
The taxpayers may all ready be on the hook for his legal fees (thank Obama) but this whole trial was a political farce and Zimmerman was the victim of it. As such he should seek to have the time that was wasted and the stress that was placed on him justly compensated.
And let’s not forget the NBC selectively altering the 911 tape completely taking what he said out of context to make Zimmerman look like a racist.
Perhaps that is asking too much though. With a media who all ready had him strung up before he was even arrested, a President who basically said Zimmerman murdered his son, a Justice department who will circumvent justice in order to get their way and a myriad of race baiters who propagate the myth this had anything to do with race…is this still America?
I won’t even get into the hypocrisy of what if Zimmerman was black and Martin was Latino. See, I would still be on the side of Zimmerman because he was being beaten to death. The NAACP, Obama, Holder et al would be on his side then because he was black.
I guess the caveat here for gun owners is that if you find yourself being beaten to death (or any life or death situation where you have to shoot) and you have to shoot…hope that the perpetrator isn’t black. In the Obamanation Justice isn’t blind…it sees color just fine, facts and truth be damned.
And I still stand by my theory that if George Zimmerman went by Jorge Mesa, this story is covered by NO ONE. Thanks race baiting media.
