George Zimmerman Arrested, Charged

After weeks of agitation by the activist Left, would-be vigilantes across America got their wish Wednesday as George Zimmerman was charged in Florida with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

“Three weeks ago our prosecution team promised those sweet parents [of Trayvon Martin] we would get answers to all of their questions, no matter where our quest for the truth led us,” special prosecutor Angela Corey told reporters in Jacksonville. “And it is that search for justice for Trayvon that has brought us to this night.”

It is far from clear what exactly transpired on that fateful February night in Sanford. At the same time it seems crystal clear that the original version of the story that painted a picture of a fanatical cop-wannabe who, without provocation, brutally gunned down a defenseless young man because he was African-American isn’t quite true.

At trial Zimmerman may be shown to be guilty of something. Lawyers say that for him to be convicted of murder in the second degree under Florida law it would have to be demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant lacked the intent to kill but still acted in such a grossly reckless and negligent manner that the victim died. A jury could also take a pass on “Murder 2″ and convict Zimmerman of a lesser offense. Florida’s “stand your ground” law could come into play and complicate matters. The key issue seems to be whether Zimmerman was in the circumstances justified in using lethal force against Martin.

These matters are best decided in court and not in the streets. Yet U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder may have already joined the leftist lynch mob and reached his own verdict in the controversial case that, thanks to cheerleader journalism, has divided America. Holder, whose visceral contempt for conservatives is well documented, is the top law enforcement official who has single-mindedly focused on turning the Department of Justice into a postmodernist racial grievance incubator, as brilliantly demonstrated by former DOJ lawyer J. Christian Adams in his excellent book Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.

While the department considers bringing federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman, the agency is “helping the state in its attempt to bring a case as well,” Holder told reporters at a DOJ press conference Wednesday. While Holder’s underlings burn the midnight oil to find a way to prosecute Zimmerman, the DOJ continues to maintain its eerie silence about the New Black Panther Party’s $10,000 “Wanted Dead or Alive” bounty on the accused man’s head. In Holder’s topsy-turvy worldview some Americans are more equal than others. The man has no stomach for offending black militants or any members of the Democratic Party coalition.

But as racial demagoguery related to the Martin killing inflames communities across the nation, it is telling that Holder took time out from his busy schedule yesterday to drop in on racial arsonist Al Sharpton, president of the Alinskyite “National Action Network” and host of MSNBC’s “Politics Nation.”

On the opening day of NAN’s 14th annual convention in the nation’s capital, Holder might as well have genuflected before Sharpton. The attorney general hailed the radical charlatan –who seems ready to execute Zimmerman with his bare hands— for “your partnership, your friendship, and your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve, and the promises we must fulfill.” Holder clearly knows how to lay it on thick.

    Seeking justice in America has become a futile search.
    The courts, the law enforcers, the state and federal administrations pander to mobs, TV cameras, a jaded press and the so called leaders of those entities have become lap dog followers of Mr. Obama who has brought his country to its lowest repute in its history.
    It is indeed tragic to see how a great democracy is crumbling before our horrified eyes.

    • white boy

      Why are you all trying to throw President Obama, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson into this incident which neither of them caused?? If George Zimmerman had let the police department do their job and not try to be rent a cop this conversation would not be taking place. President Obama did not bring this country to this point it was already at this point from years before he took office. But you racist bigots want to say that because he is considered African American. Where's the justice African Americans have been getting when jury of their peers were all caucasian men, that falsely accused them in the first place. So just look back if you want to see "tragic"

      • pagegl

        Nope, we're saying it because Obama and Holder have shown they are racists and are more than willing to use any racial issue, real or imagined, to forward their political agenda. Obama, Sharpton, and Jackson did not have to get involved; they placed themseleves directly in the middle of this issue. Obama and Holder did not bring this country to this point, but they have done everything in their power, along with Sharpton and Jackson, to make sure we cannot move away from it.

      • wsk

        If Trayvon "little angel" Martin, didn't act like the thuglet he was and attacked Mr. Zimmerman, this conversation would not be taking place. Mucking racist foron!

        Unlike white boy and others like him,I'm going to wait UNTIL all the facts are in. Far too often,it's been those like white boy that have rushed to judgement before we get the full story. I wish we could wait until we get a better idea of what really happened that night.

        This isn't about skin color, why do you want to make it one?

      • hhhhhhhhhhh

        Here we go again – another racist comment. Can you tell me how Obama's black relatives took care of him? Can you tell me what his "typical white" grandmother did for him? I don't care what color he is – I don't think he's American. He spent too much time out of this country & his whole background is suspect. THAT is the problem. But I guess you must have voted for him since he's black, but call everyone else bigots.

    FREE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN

    Special prosecutor Angela Corey charging George Zimmerman with second degree murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin is one degree less ridiculous then seeking first degree murder charges-which Corey's predecessor Norm Wolfinger did when after letting Zimmerman go free on evidence of self-defense reversed himself three weeks later and called on the grand jury to investigate him for murder in the first. Corey like Wolfinger went for murder charges not to serve justice (which it doesn't) but to quell the insane leftwing racial uproar and violent Zimmerman hate rhetoric surrounding the case and threatening violence. Mob justice prevailed yesterday but only temporarily. Everyone knows that if Trayvon Martin (the little gangsta wannabe thug) was anything but black Zimmerman would still be a free man today. The false issue of racial justice put the innocent Zimmerman in jail; and justice will only be served when he is free again for defending himself from death or great bodily harm.

    • Kat

      You are insane! What makes him a gangsta wanna be thug? Is it that fact that he is not like you? If he were not black Mr. Z would have been arrested that night.

      • Not a gangsta

        "What makes him a gangsta wanna be thug?"

        His history of antisocial behavior? His posession of a burglary tool and stolen jewelery? His posession of marijuana? His gangsta clothes? His golden teeth? His tattoos? All of the above?

Miami Walgreens to protest his death. Face it Kat this kid was on a crooked path in life and it got him killed like 1000s of other young black men.

          The pictures of the gold teeth, clothes , tattoos etc. were not Mr. Williams , they wer taken from a strom front web site ( that I'm sure your very familiar with) an empty bag of pot , the jewelery was found NOTt be stolen. But being Black to those like you , in itself made him a gangsta and should have been murdered.

            The" non-stolen" jewlery was in the same bag as a burglary tool fool. Was Martin's gangsta screen name also created by Storm Front? And the video of Martin's friends mob robbing a Walgreens to protest his death? Was that also the work of Storm Front? Moreover, before the baggie was empty what was in it? And what did Martin do with the contents? Hundreds of gansta teens like Martin are killed every year. It's a dangerous lifestyle.

      • tagalog

        Zimmerman was arrested. There's a video of him arriving at the cop shop in a police cruiser for questioning, remember? Don't let black racist propaganda affect your perceptions.

        • white boy

          He wasn't arrested then just in for questioning. remember? Why is everything you post contain some racist comment about African American. This situation is about just not race as all of you racist bigots are trying to make it to be.

          • tagalog

            The definition arrived at by the courts as to the term "arrest" in the law enforcement context is you're under arrest if your freedom of movement is restricted by the law enforcement authorities you're dealing with. The video sure suggests that Zimmerman wouldn't have been allowed to leave the police station if he'd decided he wanted to go home. So it looks to me like he was under arrest.

            If the Martin-Zimmerman case isn't about race, what is it about? Why are black people getting all upset about it?

          • Dennis x

            Because a teenager walking back from a store was murdered and the shooter was only retained for questioning and not charged based on the stand your ground laws. The implications are considerable. Under those laws I could shoot any klansmen I see ( or alot of the posters here) and walk.

          • tagalog

            No you couldn't.

            Zimmerman was not charged because the testimony of witnesses led the cops and the DA to believe that they didn't have probable cause to charge him with any crime.

          • http://apollospaeks.blogtownhall.com/ ApolloSpeaks

            There was also a lie detector test that has been underreported. Click my name for my article on the subject.

  • David R

    The KKK now wears black robes and are hell-bent on pushing their way of justice with a touch of the lynching-itching disease. People like Sharpton and his likes should be arrested for promoting hatred, the worst kind in this case and others, because these goons are obstructing an already fragile justice system.
    I bet these individuals attend their political and racist churches every Sunday to feed under the hatred tree of the likes of false pastors in sheep clothing like Jesse Jackson.
    Sad how America has become a Godless society so quickly…just like the ancient civilizations who auto-destroyed by their immoral patterns of corruption and injustice. At least they had the excuse of being pagans. What's ours?

    • Questions

      The issue isn't "godlessness." The black lynch mob, starting with Reverend Sharpton, itself is deeply religious in a Christian way. Nor is the issue "racism." In obsessing over racism, we tacitly endorse our enemies' main premise and wind up doing their dirty work, a la National Review.

      The issue is race realism. Put simply, are whites going to stop being terrorized by blacks, verbally, physically and legally? Or are we going to defend our own?

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        Sharpton is not 'religious in a Christian way'.
        Can you show a single teaching of Christ that is being followed by the racist lynch mob Obama is backing?

      • Disgusted Observer

        I think there are a great many people who use religion as a stage to make money, gain an audience and manipulate others for their own advantage. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are two such men. I think it is amazing that in the black church, it seems, no one really needs any actual credentials for being referred to as "reverend", you just need a big mouth.

        • Me2

          It's all about tax write-offs & nothing else. The guy hasn't actually worked a day in his life. He is just another leader of a bunch of dopes. Same as Obama. When you listen to a person who has never actually worked, sweat, busted his ass, etc. you are stupid & they (Sharpton & Obama) know it. They can't bs a person with a brain.

        "Reverend Sharpton, itself is deeply religious in a Christian way"

  • Steve Chavez

    PREPARE FOR RIOTS! If he is found NOT GUILTY, the Panthers, Jessie and Al, and Blacks across the country will riot and will cause more damage than the Rodney King riots. What are Holder and Obama to do? Throw fuel on the fire of course.

    If Zimmerman is found guilty, WHITE HISPANICS WILL RIOT!

    • davarino

      Ya, you know how those racist WHITE HISPANICS are. Werent they the ones that started WWII? The nazis fled Germany to South America, then mixed with the hispanics there, and immigrated to North America.

      Somebody has to be the fall guy, but I didnt think they would get this worked up over minority on minority crime.

      • StephenD

        Funny you should say this. Just last week in Sanford, FL (where this took place) there were 4 shootings; one included a pregnant woman. But alas, it was Black on Black and so there is no call for the Federal Government to get involved. There is no outrage from Sharpton or Jackson. There isn't even a comparison of any of the victims should they look like Obama.

        • tagalog

          It would have been more newsworthy if the shootings had been done by white black men.

          • trickyblain

            Or if law enforcement set one of the shooters free without charges.

        • Dennis x

          Tulsa, OK, three Blackmen murdered, two others shot by white racists, white on Black crime. People simply wanted zimmerman to be tried. Let the cout do its thing, but the racist post at this site don't even wanted to afford that opportunity to people of color.

          • Zionista

            why is it that the life of a black person seems to have value ONLY when taken by someone who isn't black????????????

          • Javon

            The logic goes like this: Blacks have the right to call other blacks 'n*****' but whites do not. Hispanics have the right to, but only if they do it in Spanish. Blacks have the right to murder innocent or non innocent blacks but whites do not (even if it is self-defense). Hispanics have the right to murder blacks but only in neighborhoods not inhabited or frequented by liberal whites or in prison. Does this help clarify things for you?

      • Disgusted Observer

        If Zimmerman had a Spanish surname, this would not have become a major story. If Zimmerman gets acquitted (and I pray he does), there will be riots. But there will also be consequences if there are riots and race relations in this country between whites, black and Hispanics (of all colors) will be at a very low level. If blacks riot, this may ruin Obama's chance for re-election.

  • Amused

    Oh well this article by Vadum , was as sure as the sunrises evey morning . And the usual "floatsam " of characters make their appearences , race -baiters , race hustlers ,and of course opportunistic conservative partisans who will spin this to no end .And of course totally ignoring the fact that justified or not a homicide took place , and a good possibility of a civil rights violation , no matter the colors of the accused or the victim . But just as The Panthers , Jackson and Sharpton , become judge jury and executioners ,. so too the partisans with political agendas .Given these circumstances , the 911 call , the advice not to pursue Martin , the fact that he was breaking no law at the time , and the fact that the victim was shot dead and unarmed at the time , the absence of no I witnesses , makes it almost a given that there should have been an arrest weeks ago , And all the "patriotic/Constitution-loving Americans" bemoaning the arrest and civil rights investigation by the DOJ , have cast that very constitution aside .And THIS by both sides of this issue .

    • Willy Rho

      There were witnesses. At least one said Martin was on top of Zimmerman pounding his face with his fist and slamming his head into the concrete. Absolutely Self Defense, but Racists won't let it go.

  • Amused

    So , let's condemn the American Justice System , which is far and away superior to any other on the facr of the planet ,and why ? Because it offends particular partisan sensibilities , based NOT on the Bill of Rights , OR The Constitution , but on political agendas and an opportunistic event to rail against political opponents . This is mothing more than a display of contempt on the part of the author [and his approvers ] of the American Justice System and ultimately the Constitution itself . It seems conservatives are slowly but surely inching towards facism , under the guise of transparently phony patriotism .

    • aspacia

      Amused,

      Get real. The DOJ is racist. The New BP should be arrested for the bounty they put on Z. Fast and Furious should lead to the ouster of Holder, but O will protect him. Holder refused to prosecute the panthers for voter intimidation.

      Peruse PJTV Adam's claim regarding his stint in the DOJ.

      • Amused

        I agree on both counts , that BP leader should have been thrown in jail the monent he issued a bounty , however that does not change in any way the nature of this case . I also blame LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT , who in both cases should have issued arrest warrents for both those incidents .

        • Amused

          The Sanford Police Department classified the incident as a homicide/negligent manslaughter and asked the Seminole County State's Attorney's office for an arrest warrent. The County State Attorney's declined their request pending further review.

          I expect individuals like Jackson and Sharpton to come out and say outrageous things to stoke up their base. However, the POTUS and Holder should not be commenting on this at all! I agree with most of your earlier statements except that those who are involved in administering justice or who by authority can influence the justice system, should not be discussing this incident. Let the system work free from politics so that it can find the truth.

          • Amused

            I agree there truckwork , Florida's special prosecutor alluded to the same , that the State Of Florida has an obligation to respect the rights of the defendant as well as the victim . The President should have made no comment , and ,although I'm not aware of any comment by Holdetr , if he did , that was also outy of line . However I do not construe DOJ involvement with 'comment " ….in ANY case where it is suspected that civil rights have been violated , no matter which side of the coin , DOJ as its purpose has anm obligation to get in volved .The circumstances being what they are in this case it is no surprise that civil rights issues would not arise …and that has nothing to do with race .

          • wctaqiyya

            Amused, nothing wrong with what you say. Except that it completely ignores all of the factual evidence proving Holder's and Obama's preconceived notions of 'justice' in America. In short, if you black, you right. If you not black, you wrong. Expecting them to continue their established pattern of behavior is not foolish or racist. It is realistic. Just look at the factual record of the Obama just-us department dude. Blinders off, Google on. Begin with, black panther voter intimidation in Philly. Yes you can, learn. And, learning is change for the better. And changing for the better gives hope. Hope and change you can really believe.

      You are a true practitioner of TURNSPEAK.
      It's your LEFTY fellow travellers who wouldn't respect the Justice System when local Law Enforcement did NOT feel there was SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE to charge Zimmerman,so the LEFTIES & RACE-BAITERS kept pushing until a "special" Persecutor was brought in to do what local L.E. wouldn't BREAK the law to do.
      Since the "special" couldn't order Zimmerman arrested on day 1 of her appointment,they ran the clock a little to appear as IF they were REINVESTIGATING what local L.E. already did,and than she ORDERED the arrest
      WHY NO GRAND JURY?Perhaps because it was obvious that NO EVIDENCE is NO EVIDENCE,yet in Zimmerman's case ,it's GUILTY until PROVEN INNOCENT

Well you wrong , simple civics courses would have illuminated that fact for you . And WHY should a decision have been rendered the first day ?? Truckwork stated that there was an I witness who said Martin was on top of Zimmerman pounding his head into the pavement , only trouble is …THAT IS NOT WHAT THE EYEWITNESS SAID , In fact according to the eyewitness they were both on the grass ,and it was not clear who was on top of who , given the vantage point of the witness . But you think it should have been a slam dunk for the Sp.Prosecutor ?

Does anyone know WHO was actually calling for help ? NO , you dont know , nor do I , nor does the public , nor did the Sp.Prosecutor …"The First Day " .
            Is there evidence that is not known to the public which would indicate that murder 2 should be the charge ? Don't know that either . I got news for you genius' , Murder 2 will be EXTREMELY difficult to prove if there is insufficient evidence , in fact , it is much more likely that Zimmerman will walk , than if the charge was manslaughter .

    It is interesting the prosecutor wants justice for Trayvon and his dear parents which is a statement to
    mollify the racists in the issue and by default villify Zimmerman. This is now a pure racist case and
    will be played out according to racist lines, black is good and a victim and white is bad and a villain.
    Why could not this prosecutor simply state Justice is being sought and leave it at that, what about
    justice for Zimmerman, was he assaulted by Trayvon returning to his truck, was he being beaten
    severely enough that he believed his life was in danger. The prosecution has to reveal all the evidence
    against Zimmerman and prove their case which will be very difficult. Can this be fair and impartial,
    not with Sharpton hanging around, that you can be sure of. Fox news announced this arrest and
    put up the little boy picture of Trayvon at about 10 or 12 years old not 17, why the bias making him
    out to be the child victim, fan the flames and continue a story that is sickeningly biased. This will
    play out disgracefully via a week kneed system and Zimmerman may get lynched…………William

      When Ms Corey spoke those words "sweet parent" the show was over. There was no need to listen further. Her "speech" was a politically correct version of the race-baiting not-so-sharpton hate speech.

        Yeah, that sounded impartial.

  • Gunner57

    I think that George Zimmerman will not get a fair trial and should consider fleeing this country. He should go to a country that will give him political asylum. He would and should be a political refugee.

    This is no longer a free country. It has become a Third World hell hole run by black savages.

        Gunner57 makes a valid point.

  • tagalog

    Angela Corey kept talking in her press conference about "justice for Trayvon" but Trayvon is beyond justice. He's dead. The only justice that can be provided is justice to George Zimmerman. Corey said this prosecution is not driven by political considerations and popular pressure. I don't believe that. I hope I'm wrong.

    It's too bad this case didn't go to the grand jury the first time prosecution was considered; they would have returned a no bill and Zimmerman would have walked, and the phony indignation over Zimmerman not being charged would have lost a lot of its plausibility.

    I will be surprised if this case ever gets to trial. In the worst-case scenario, this may be perceived by the jurors if there is a trial as a chance to compensate for the O.J. trial (unless the jury gets fraudulently packed with black jurors). That would be bad all around; bad for justice, bad for the people, bad for the society.

    • Will

      I am so sick of people talking about this case and referencing O. J. when the fact this man took it upon himself to follow this young man even after being told by dispatch not to. and in your quote "the jury gets fraudulently packed with black jurors" well that's never happened in the reverse huh? Think back and look at most trails of people of color back 400 years til now. Thing rethink your little quotation.

      • tagalog

        Why are you so sick of the O.J. thing? Aren't the parallels and contrasts fairly obvious to at least some?

        If white people fraudently packed juries against black people, which they arguably never have done, why does that make the reverse OK now?

        Did Zimmerman continue following Martin, or did he quit following him after his conversation with the dispatcher, and did the dispatcher actually tell him not to, or just advise him that "we don't need you to do that?" How would the cops have ID'd Martin if Zimmerman didn't follow him to say to the cops that he was the person? Isn't Zimmerman's story that Martin confronted him and asked him if he had a problem with him, and when told "No," said "Now you do" and assaulted Zimmerman, knocking him to the ground and beating him when he was down? Or is that to be deemed a lie because it doesn't fit the narrative? Why did Martin take so long to run his candy and tea errand? Was he casing the buildings on his way?

    • Questions

      Why did Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey call Trayvon Martin's parents "sweet?" I find very little sweet about them. Corey sounds like your classic light-skinned black, desperate to prove her racial bonafides. Check out her photos if you don't believe me.

      • Amused

        First off , Questions , you are ignorant . tagalog , this case will most assuredly go to trial , for the only way to avoid it is if Zimmerman takes a plea deal . With Murder 2 , that may mean a considerable jail sentence . Zimmerman would be crazy to take a plea , better are his chances in court , assuming there is no overiding evidencen indicating anything but manslaughter .

    People want to claim the victim as if America is so dysfunctional with race hatred it is impossible to live in peace. I would suggest that to all those that would hold such views, please explain to us anywhere else, ANYWHERE else, black people as a race have it better. The complaint was made on national TV that this is the result (still) of Slavery. Well, if that is true, when you get finished with the Arab Muslims who introduced your ancestors into slavery, then you can go after those that would still engage in such practices…which happens to be the very same folks to this very day. When you are done with them, come and tell us how America can be better for you.

    • tagalog

      America IS dysfunctional with race hatred. Blacks hate whites so much they will refuse to convict an obviously guilty man if he's black and will threaten violence and murder if a white man who is clearly Not Guilty of any crime (since there's ample reasonable doubt about his guilt) is not arrested and forced to go to trial. This black hatred is largely ignored, except when the boil bursts every now and then and we have to deal with the discharge.

      Because of this black hatred of white people, America is cartoonishly seen as racially oppressive, even by people who should (and often do) know better, when in actual fact America is one of the most racially tolerant and accepting nations.

        Oh god,tagalog. You're just as bad as mrbean is. You make sweeping generalizations about blacks and yet have nothing to back it up. Not all blacks act like you say. That's as bad as saying that all blacks are thugs. Maybe you should stop reading neo-Nazi and KKK websites and go out into the real world. Maybe you'd learn something.

  • John C. Davidson

    Last evening, our local TV station here in Columus, Ohio reproted a store employee was shot in the leg by a robber. Guess what, he was wearing a hoodie & got away, but now, the report failed to identify him as a black man although the security camera showed that he was indeed a black man.

    I call this social justice nothing more than unsocial justice. How in the world can we catch any criminal if we can't give out a description and worry about upsetting the DOJ now empowered to claim we are biased.

  • BS77

    So forty days after being released, Zimmerman was arrested again. It's all transparent politics. He will plead not guilty…or plead to involuntary manslaughter…and hopefully this dreadful case will eventually fade out without the Rodney King verdict riots. Nobody really knows what happened…but the Sharpton types have made realism and a dispassionate legal process impossible. NOw, on with the "show trial" and the somewhat predictable outcome. ZImmerman will be convicted of "something" that will hopefully satisfy the mob of idiots on the courthouse steps. So much for justice.

    The MSM has already convicted him . They (MSM) would like nothing more than all out riots ( an abyss of news
    to throw hatred and fear on the fires of Insanity). The Florida DA team will search out the OJ jurors and give them
    residence to preside in the Zimmerman trial
    . Obama , Jackson and Sharpton will go on TV and adopt Trayvon post
    mortem . They will petition the Catholic Church to begin the Sainhood procedure on Trayvon's behalf.

  • Michael

    This Zimmerman thing is not about justice it is about the fact that Trayvon was Black and the MSM painted
    Zimmerman White . Had Trayvon killed Zimmerman he would have been considered a hero . Just as if OJ had
    been White and Nicole been Black that jury with room temp I.Qs would have deliberated for five minutes to deliver
    a Guilty verdict. There is deep rooted sadness in the validity of this logic.

    I wonder why the prosecutor chose to prosecute Zimmerman for 2d Degree Murder instead of Voluntary Manslaughter. They have to prove some sort of intent on Zimmerman's part to prove 2d Degree Murder; unless they have some evidence we don't have at this point (they probably do, at least I would think so if they've decided to go forward with a prosecution), Voluntary Manslaughter would be easier to prove.

    I bet the blacks will say the decision to prosecute for 2d Degree Murder is part of a conspiracy to make sure that Zimmerman gets off instead of being punished.

    • intrcptr2

      It's a set up.
      With the lesser included charges, the jury can acquit on murder2, but still convict on some other charge, like Vol. Man. It is a very slick way to avoid double-jeopardy prohibitions in the Bill of Rights.

    If police had been smart and arrested him in the first place, you know this circus could have been avoided. Even if they held him on a manslaughter charge until the facts were known. "Let's see, you shot an unarmed teenager in self-defense after you followed him? Well, the kid can't tell his side of it, so…Sounds OK to me."

  • stephenx100

    All of you commenters who recognize that America has been overrun by savages it is time to resign yourselves to the truth. We have become Zimbabwe West and further protest is hopeless. Even if Zimmerman is acquitted or found guilty of a lesser charge, the savages will run through the streets engaging in their ritual looting. The prosecutor violated every rule of proper legal behavior for such a case. By praying with the Martin family, she should have aroused the ACLU and their usual ilk of separation of church and state protesters, but there was silence. Savage crimes against whites and Asians remains unprosecuted and will only grow. We can do nothing but cry silently for the demise of America. As long as a majority of Americans reflect their brainwashed status that a black person can commit no crime and is always the pinnacle of virtue, as promoted by the Hollywood controllers of our culture, the outcome is preordained. We are doomed!

  • Schlomotion

    Thankfully, we have the timely arrival of Angela Corey, an impartial, soft-spoken, clear, humane, meticulous and comforting speaker and professional. Matt Vadum has not yet figured out in his catfish brain how to slander this poor woman, so he has woven the massive conspiracy theory about Eric Holder instead, because Eric Holder is demonstrably corrupt. After the prosecutor said that the case would not be tried in the media, I knew it would be a matter of minutes before the kangaroos would come out and insist on dragging it back into the media for trial.

    We haven't been overrun by savages. We've simply, through a misguided set of referents that have led us to believe that government's role is to support us from cradle to grave and to subsidize all our costs, and to insure equality of result, created a subculture of people, both black, white, and otherwise, who expect as a matter of right to be catered to in every way. We will play hell trying to get things back on a more realistic track; we may not be able to do it. People will fight over doing that.

    The Racists were afraid to let him be indicted by a Grand Jury. The reason, they would let him go without ANY charges because he was protecting his own life. And the Racist Blaques would riot. But dummy, unless a jury finds him guilty, they will riot anyway. Of course That OJ Simpson guy was tried by a jury of 12 Blaques, With 700 pieces of evidence of which all pointed to OJ, he was declared innocent. In that case InJustice was done by Racist Blaque Jurors. And of course Eric (The Fast & Furious One) Holder will do something more stupid in this case. What I don't know, but he will do anything for Barry Soetoro's re-election.

  • Brujo Blanco

    Every situation of this nature should be handled the same without regard for the ethnic background of anyone involved. This case was initially handled as a white man shooting a small unarmed black child. Later it was determined that the shooter was not white. Then he was a white Hispanic. Then it was determined that the deceased was 6’3″ and subsatially taller than the shooter. He shooter did not have a record but the deceased did. Then the shooter was not injured but later he had a broken nose and head injury. Now there are strong indications that there may be an outcome based trial. In fact the shooter’s attorneys have quit. I do not believe he will get a fair trial. I believe that regardless of the outcome he and/or his family will have to leave.

    • tagalog

      I agree that a "purely spiteful jury" is responsible for the Not Guilty verdict in the O.J. case. And if a predominately black jury gets picked in the Zimmerman case (assuming it gets to the trial stage), a "purely spiteful jury" is going to render a verdict in that case too.

      Zimmerman should try his case to a judge. I bet his chances of an acquittal would be better.

    Eric Holder is just another race pimp, in the vein of Jackson and Sharpton, et al.
    I just hope this special prosecutor is basing her charges on the actual evidence and not what a bunch of thugs see as a "hate crime".
    Maybe the evidence will subject Mr. Zimmerman to some type of conviction. Maybe he will be found not guilty on any and all charges.
    If he is not convicted of murder, I feel for the people of that area of Florida, and any other areas of the country where the punks, who will use any excuse to riot, will surely terrorize many neighborhoods.

    The Eric Holder and Angela Corey racist crowd will ruin George Zimmer financially, and he will have great difficulty getting future employment, even if he is found not guilty, They will make sure that he can never carry a gun again, and don't think he is not in danger from the chimpout panthers and their hood thug friends. As for Trayvon Martin's sweet parents as Angela Corey gushed, maybe if they had taught their teen thug how to properly behave towards adults he would syll be alive. If asked by an adult who is the neighborhood watch what he is doing in a gated community very late at night he does not live in, his answer should have been, "My name is Trayvon Martin and I am going to visit GIVE NAME at GIVE ADDRESS. Instead. he sucker punches an adult Zimmerman and breaks his nose and is on top of him ramming his head into the concrete sidewalk, then by all means empty the whole magzine in him. That is called self defense chumps. As for the teen thug Trayvon Martin, he be bad, sooo sad, then he get shot, then he die, and…… water come to me eye.

  • RonCarnine

    I'm a retired police officer. I was commander of our dept.'s gang unit. My biggest obstacle during this assignment is that I had the audacity to have been born white. The men of this unit worked hard. They made arrests for everything from narcotics possession and distribution to illegal possession of firearms. The biggest complaint that our unit faced was that we were racist. The vast majority of the people we arrested were black. Why? Because of just a few exceptions the gangs and street crimes were committed by blacks. Now we have a tragedy, a young black man is dead. A "white Hispanic" has been arrested for 2nd degree murder. The President and the federal DOJ is involved up to their necks. The black useful idiots like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were threatening some kind of civil action (riots?) if Zimmerman isn't arrested. So a high powered federal prosecutor is brought in (what's the matter with the state's prosecutor?) who charges him with 2nd degree murder. 2nd degree murder for this? The problem is Zimmerman isn't guilty! At least he isn't guilty of 2nd degree murder. So why this charge? Because it's political. Holder and Obama are behind it. I hope the defense is able, somehow, to get all memo's between Holder and Obama and the fed. prosecutor. But they probably don't exist as they got burned so badly by "Fast and Furious". I'm a bit ashamed of this law enforcement farce. You see, criminal justice is a search for the truth. When it becomes a political tool, the truth is lost and instead of justice you get injustice. I can only hope, for Zimmerman's sake, and for more, for the whole concept of truth and of justice. Otherwise the Bible says, "Truth has fallen in the street". May it not be so.

    Angela Corey is another Mike Nifong – the similarities are striking – a difficult re-election, aboiding Grand Jury; second degree murder charge on behalf of her 'sweet, sweet Trayvon and his 'wonderful' parents, whom she prayed with over the past few weeks repeatedly to get justice for Trayvon.
    What is wrong with this picture?
    No charges against plack panthers for terrorising G Zimmermann, threatening and vowing to kill him expressed in their bounty? What about his civil rights? No charges against sike lee – endangering the life on an elderly couple by tweeting their address in the internet, forcing them to fell their home because of death threats?

    Nifong gave into political and, racist pressure with the same usual race hustlers invovled and, where did he ended up after ignoring evidence beneficial to the Duke LaCrosse Players?

    Corey should also be disbarred, her unethical and political decision to mishandle this case isasking for nothing less.

    Pay back time for OJ trial…All they need is ONE jury to say NOT guilty..and they will get that. Let the riots begin. Blacks are going to riot even if he is found guilty on manslaughter. They just want to riot for the hell of it. Who cares. Grab a seat and watch it on TV with popcorn. Have my guns locked and loaded if fools even think of coming to my house. As ALL of us will have. Blacks know better..They are really cowards at heart. They burn up their own neighborhoods cause they know they will be SHOT DEAD if they come to others peoples homes trying to start trouble.

    Everyone wants truth and justice, but if Zimmerman gets convicted, will it stop the Race Wars….I think not! This case has been used to cause further division and cause chaos. The Law should handle this, not the Black Panthers putting a Bounty on Zimmerman. There are many murders of young people that don't even reach the front pages of the news.. all nationalities of victims… Makes one disgusted at how this case is used to push an agenda!

  • tagalog

    A Not Guilty verdict will NOT be justice; Zimmerman will still have been imprisoned with no bail while he waits for trial, his life will be permanently disrupted (assuming some racial thug doesn't assassinate him), and he will have crippling expenses associated with defending himself, even if his lawyer doesn't charge him a dime.

    Ordinarily, it would be acceptable for those disruptions to occur; it's part of the administration of justice. But Zimmerman, having initially been cleared of wrongdoing, is facing charges (in an absurd example of prosecutorial overcharging) solely because of the pressure of uninformed black demonstrators, pimps and procurers among self-appointed black leaders, and threats of social upheaval and murder.
