There’s not much to be said about the Zimmerman trial. I wasn’t there, and neither were you. Based on the evidence presented, Zimmerman’s shooting of Trayvon Martin was self defense. Here is what I said on Facebook after a wave of snotty indignation swept through many on my friends list:
1) THERE ARE NO WINNERS HERE. The Martin family lost a child, and Zimmerman will spend the rest of his life fighting off civil lawsuits, the NAACP and the thuglets on social media, posting his address, threatening to kill him and some probably attempting to.
2) NONE OF US WERE THERE. The only two people who know what happened were Zimmerman and Martin. And yet, we have amateurs sitting around making pronouncements about whether or not one murdered the other. FYI – murder is a very specific act, and none of you are qualified to make a judgment based on what the media feeds you.
3) THE CASE WAS TRIED, AND THE JURY HAS RENDERED ITS VERDICT. Not being a lawyer, but being a person who has half a brain, I could see that the prosecution had a very weak case. When a prosecutor tells a jury in his closing arguments to make a decision by looking into their hearts, instead of looking objectively at the evidence, you know the case is weak.
4) NONE OF US HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION TO JUDGE ZIMMERMAN GUILTY. I can sit here an postulate all I want on what I know about the case, but I’m not going to condemn the jury for their decision. They had way more information than we did.
Justice was served. The jury has examined the evidence and decided that the shooting was self defense. There was no “Stand Your Ground” issue in this case. Zimmerman couldn’t retreat with Martin on top of him, beating him up. Period. He is not guilty of murder. Nor is he guilty of manslaughter.
Unfortunately, the so called Department of “Justice” and Attorney General Eric Holder have decided that justice is only justice when the Department of Justice says it’s justice. And with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton shrieking, the NAACP screeching and millions of wannabe lawyers demanding action by the Obama Administration, justice, in this case, is apparently going to be determined by the inept and pathetic Eric Holder.
First, in an effort to tongue bathe the collective taints of the NAACP, Holder went on a verbal rampage against “stand your ground” laws – laws that allow a potential victim to stand their ground and fight their assailant, instead of mandating that they retreat – laws that had nothing to do with this case. Then, this incompetent buffoon, who couldn’t get his damn stories straight about Fast and Furious, about secretly investigating a Fox News reporter and about snooping in the media’s phone records, is trolling for tips about Zimmerman’s alleged racism by setting up an email address where the
Stasi… uh… Soviets… uh… concerned citizens can drop tips about Zimmerman’s Hitlerite KKK ways.
And now, the latest. The Department of inJustice has instructed the Sanford Police not to return Zimmerman’s property to him… including his firearm.
The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial – including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer’s gun.
Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month’s end.
So Zimmerman was found not guilty by a jury in a fair trial. By every standard of what is right and fair, he should be allowed to live his life, his property returned to him, and left alone by the government.
But the DOJ doesn’t like the outcome, and Holder his using his authority to bully the police into disarming George Zimmerman, stealing his property, and finding loopholes to try him AGAIN!
Look, this Attorney General and this Department of Justice are out of control. Absolutely off the chain!
Let’s forget for a moment the gun running scheme that funneled thousands of American guns to Mexican drug lords. Let’s forget that Holder lied about what he knew about this failed program and when he knew it. Let’s forget that Holder was held in contempt for Congress for refusing to cooperate in the Fast and Furious investigation, and that his pal Zero had to use Executive Privilege to shield him from further scrutiny.
Let’s forget his refusal to prosecute members of the New Black Panther party, who stood outside a Philadelphia polling place and intimidated voters. Let’s forget that Holder claimed that standing outside the polls wielding blunt objects wasn’t really “voter intimidation” – at least not comparable to other voter intimidation back in the 60s.
Let’s forget Holder’s ineptitude and inability to prosecute large banks for criminal acts.
Let’s not focus on the DOJ’s seizure of media phone records, the tracking and monitoring of Fox News reporter James Rosen and the subsequent outright lies about Holder’s knowledge of the case!
Let’s focus on the fact that Holder stuck his foul face into a local criminal investigation, used taxpayer dollars to foment discontent and protests when local authorities decided not to charge Zimmerman, and now is attempting to destroy Zimmerman’s life by prosecuting him again… after a jury found him not guilty of murder.
This is not justice. Holder is a corrupt, lying, racist cockholster, who wouldn’t know justice if it jumped up and bit him on his shriveled nutsack. He should have been booted out of office after lying to Congress about Fast and Furious. He should have been told to shut his fat yap after he called the people of this nation a bunch of cowards, who refuse to have an honest conversation about race. But instead, here he is, working to ruin the life of a guy, who is already screwed by all accounts, given the threats against his life, and fomenting racial hatred and divide that hasn’t been seen in decades in this country.
I can’t even begin to explain how odious, repugnant and morally reprehensible Eric Holder is!
Time for him to go!
UPDATE: You know… Zimmerman was found not guilty. There’s no reason for him not to be able to pass a NICS check and simply go into a store and legally purchase a new firearm. If the DOJ is claiming they need his other firearm for their
witch hunt… investigation, they certainly have no cause to prevent him from getting a brand new, shiny tool of self defense.
