What the judge in the Zimmerman trial ruled as not relevant was certainly available to the president when he said that Trayvon Martin "could have been my son." But that additional evidence about a teenage hoodlum didn't fit the president's narrative, and so he left it out.
Jesse Jackson and Eric Holder have taken stands repulsive to America's independence, using the Zimmerman case as a cover. Jackson wants an UN investigation of the case, while Holder has denounced stand-your-ground laws.
The George Zimmerman case may have been decided, but the ramifications of that decision continue to reverberate. Following the jury’s acquittal of George Zimmerman for second degree murder in the shooting of Travyon Martin, a former employee at the Florida State Attorney’s office has indicated that he will be filing a whistleblower suit against George Zimmerman’s prosecutors.
Attorney General Eric Holder questioned the legitimacy of "stand your ground" laws that 25 states have adopted, claiming they "sow dangerous conflict." This directly contradicts Supreme Court precedents since the 1890s.
Various news media are trying to make the facts of the Zimmerman case fit the preordained conclusion of racism.
Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, acquitted Saturday in a Florida court of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, may yet face criminal prosecution by the U.S. Department of Justice for civil rights violations in the February 2012 killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly's close political connections with Senator Schumer and Mayor Bloomberg, coupled with his mini-police state technology keeping watch over New Yorkers, make him the "perfect candidate" to replace DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Shortly after George Zimmerman was found not guilty late Saturday of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the self-defense shooting death of Trayvon Martin, unrest hit the city of Oakland as race-mongers like Al Sharpton, the NAACP, and even some Democrat members of Congress publicly demanded that the Obama administration pursue federal “civil rights” charges instead. So far, the verdict has elicited outrage and sadness from Martin supporters, while those who believed Zimmerman acted in self-defense reacted with a mixture of relief and anxiety about what comes next.
It is now known that the Department of Justice sent operatives to Florida in the wake of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin shooting incident. But while their stated mission was one of “impartial mediation practices and conflict resolution,” a watchdog group claims to have found evidence of a far more sinister motive.
The dangers of expanding the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to include "mentally defective" individuals and requiring states to include everyone diagnosed as such is raising concerns over privacy and the eventual elimination of firearms from every American citizen.
The establishment media silence is deafening when a report like the one Obama ordered from the CDC contradicts the anti-gun narrative of the White House.
