"We decided to focus on the idea that George wants to have a jury of his peers decide his case," O’Mara told reporters, according to the Associated Press. "And it’s going to be, I think, a more accepted result for everyone who has to accept the result — that he gets an acquittal at trial, more so than an immunity hearing given by a judge."
Everyone knows that no judge can afford to let Zimmermann go, or else risk rioting, looting, and lose re-election. So he can not easily be acquitted:
- No matter that most "proof" of his guilt proved to be lies.
- No matter that Zimmermann’s statements have never been disproven. He has never been caught lying about facts of the case. Except, maybe about the value of donations received.
- No matter that the state has to prove guilt, and not Zimmermann has to prove innocence.
- no matter that the main witness, Martin’s girl friend Dee has lied about simple facts as her age, and was primed, prepared, and deposed by Trayvon Martin’s lawyer
- George Zimmermann cannot have a fair trial, due to unchecked black intimidation, black violence, black racism, and biased press
- Why George Zimmermann is guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin (NOT)
- FBI refuses to release the details of their investigation (probably because these details favor George)
- Jose Baez: Evidence ‘so weak’ in George Zimmerman case
George Zimmermann killed Trayvon Martin, after getting his nose broken, the back of his head seriously banged up. In violation of the iron legal maxim "Don’t talk to Cops" he totally cooperated with police, proving that he was acting in self defense. Not one lie, no contradiction was found in his testimony.
An outcry of Black fanatism, including president Obama’s infamous meddling in a police case: "If I had a son he would look like Trayvon", caused the case to be re-opened. George Zimmermann was evicted from his college, is in hiding from unpunished New Black Panthers mob violence, He is totally broke from legal expenses.
The reason for Florida’s "stand your ground" laws was exactly to spare good men – who act in self defense – the ruinous expense to hire a lawyer.
- based on the times and distances Zimmerman said he covered, Zimmerman would have still been on the phone with Sanford police when he claims he was attacked by Martin;
Interestingly, Michael Knox desperately tries to look unbiased. Because the facts are so overwhelmingly in George’s favor. So he finds every little straw that casts light doubt upon George. If George stopped a while to look around, that is enough to explain why he was not back to his car.
- had Martin walked directly to his destination, his father’s girlfriend’s townhome, he would have made it there safely before Zimmerman ended his nonemergency call to Sanford police;
It is harder to explain why Martin had backed up and returned, instead of just simply going home.
- Martin was in fact leaning over Zimmerman when the fatal shot was fired, just as Zimmerman has maintained.
To reach that last conclusion, Knox examined both a Florida Department of Law Enforcement report on the gunshot’s impact to the hooded sweatshirt Martin was wearing and the autopsy report describing the gunshot wound to the body.
The medical examiner determined the gunshot was fired from "intermediate range," but the hoodie showed a "contact" shot, indicating the muzzle of Zimmerman’s gun was touching or extremely close to the fabric when the shot was fired.
Knox explained that the loose fitting sweatshirt was farther away from the body because of gravity, which pulled it down as Martin was situated above Zimmerman.
That is consistent with Zimmerman’s claim that he was on his back struggling with Martin when he reached for the gun, pointed it upward and fired, Knox said.
"We look at the physical evidence and then we say, ‘What does it tell us?’" said Knox, who before his 2010 retirement testified often for the same state attorney’s office that was specially appointed by the governor to prosecute Zimmerman.
Knox also says that Zimmermann could have gotten back to his car before the struggle, and Trayvon Martin could have easily gotten home. Of course, neither of the two would be obliged to do so. And Zimmermann had more reasons to stand, linger, wait and look. Trayvon Martin would have more reason to walk a quarter of a mile to get home and out of the rain.
More than 2:30 passes between the time Zimmerman hung up with Sanford police (7:13:39) and when a neighbor who heard the commotion connected with a 911 operator (7:16:11). The struggles continues on that call for 45 seconds, until the fatal gunshot is heard at 7:16:56.
The evidence against George Zimmermann?
The only "proof" against George Zimmermann was the (biased?) testimony of Trayvon Martin’s girl friend. Three weeks after the fact, after long training by Trayvon’s lawyer. She claimed Trayvon acted startled when accosted by George.
We can not be sure she lied. But I believe she already was caught in lies about her age. If she gets caught lying under oath, she will probably be excused, for being black, a woman, and young. And, an intelligent lawyer, supported by the entire civil rights movement, had weeks to carefully prepare the girl’s lies, to even hypnotize her so she herself believes in it.
And even if she was true, that Zimmermann rudely accosted Martin. Once faced with deadly blows of his head against concrete, the situation reverts to self defense. No stand your ground is needed, it is plain self defense.
Additionally they call Zimmermann a liar. His wife lied about the value of donations, to keep bail lower. He never lied about the circumstances of the (self defense) killing. Note: if you collaborate with police, it is difficult to keep a lie story straight, against physical evidence.
Overlooked Black violence vs. unjustified Black victimhood
"The idea that Trayvon Martin is today’s Emmet Till suggests nothing less than a stubborn nostalgia for America’s racist past." (Shelby Steele, cited in Knox).
While Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean immigrants (IQ 105) become part the intellectual elite within one generation, Blacks (IQ 85) still lag behind purely because of slavery a few centuries ago. And all Black woes in Africa are the fault of Colonialism, no matter if countries become worse off once the white colonialists leave (Zimbabwe (former Rhodesia), South Africa, ….)
Walter Williams, a black economist and professor at George Mason university posted an editorial on May 22 on CNS News in which he lamented the fact that ninety-four percent of the 7,000 blacks murdered in the United States each year are killed by another black person.‡ “A much larger issue is how might we interpret the deafening silence about the day-to-day murder in black communities compared with the national uproar over the killing of Trayvon Martin,” Williams wrote. “Such a response by politicians, civil rights organizations and the mainstream news media could easily be interpreted as ‘blacks killing other blacks is of little concern, but it’s unacceptable for a white to kill a black person.’”
Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson spoke to reporters from Orlando’s News 13 at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte on September 4 demanding justice for Trayvon Martin. “We just want the one who killed him to pay the price of justice as a deterrent from it happening again,” Jackson said. “There is simply too much violence, too much racial violence. We as a nation must become more civil and more caring, but I do want us in the process to remain nonviolent, and disciplined and focused.”† Williams quoted T. Willard Fair, the president of the Urban League of Greater Miami, who asked, “Wouldn’t you think to have 41 people shot [in Chicago] between Friday morning and Monday morning would be much more newsworthy and deserve much more outrage?”

He forgot the Black against White crime. A US Black is 7 times as likely to kill a White, than a White to kill a Black
Black crime is rampant, against Whites and their fellow Blacks. The politically correct press purposefully hides that fact. (Google for unamusement park). The US civil rights establishments never sees black violence against Whites as a hate crime. In Stamford, around the date of the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmermann incident, a few Blacks beat a White man to near death. Nobody cares. Several White people were beaten severely, as "revenge for Trayvon Martin". No outrage in the press. The New Black Panthers put up a $ 10.000 bounty for George, dead or alive. No punishment. No hate crime.
But not all black Americans saw the killing this way. Conservative black author, columnist, and Stanford University senior fellow Shelby Steele wrote an opinion column in the Wall Street Journal on April 6 in which he accused civil rights leaders Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of exploiting Martin’s murder. “His death was vindication of the ‘poetic truth’ that these establishments live by,” Steele wrote, referring to America’s civil rights establishments. “Poetic truth is like poetic license where one breaks grammatical rules for effect. Better to break the rule than lose the effect. Poetic truth lies just a little; it bends the actual truth in order to highlight what it believes is a larger and more important truth.”
“The civil rights community and the liberal media live by the poetic truth that America is still a reflexively racist society, and that this remains the great barrier to black equality,” Steele wrote. “America has greatly evolved since the 1960s. There are no longer any respectable advocates of racial segregation. And blacks today are nine times more likely to be killed by other blacks than by whites.”
To Steele, Trayvon Martin’s murder was not a poignant representation of the second-class status of black Americans, but a shocking rarity in a nation besieged by murders of black males by black males. “If Trayvon Martin was a victim of white racism,” Steele explained, “his murder would be an anomaly, not a commonplace. It would be a bizarre exception to the way so many young black males are murdered today. . . . Black teenagers today are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites.”

The witnesses to the February 2012 shooting of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin are proving even more troublesome than the angels. The state’s case took a hit last week when Witness #8, Martin’s alleged 16-year-old sweetheart "Dee Dee," was caught in falsehoods so flagrant that even the Trayvon-friendly Orlando Sentinel noticed them. Conceded the headline, "Lawyer: State’s main witness in George Zimmerman murder case lied."
When Dee Dee was first introduced to the world last March, the state and the media presumed her testimony would nail Zimmerman’s coffin shut. She had been on the phone with Martin during the incident. "Trayvon Martin told her that someone was following him," said CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin on March 20. "He was nervous. He was concerned. She explained to him that he should run."
It was not the first piece of misinformation tied to her, but it was the most damaging to date and left prosecutors in a very awkward position.
They had to publicly acknowledge that their star witness had lied under oath and had to answer questions about what they intend to do about it.
Reporters asked: Will you charge the 19-year-old Miami woman with perjury?
The state’s lead prosecutor, Bernie de la Rionda, gave an ambiguous answer: "You can all read the law and make your own decision."
The woman had told prosecutors she was in the hospital on the day of Trayvon’s funeral.
"In fact, she lied," defense attorney Don West said.
