Zimmerman case: a mock trial in a kangaroo court

Zimmerman case: a mock trial in a Kangaroo court


George Zimmerman’s mock trial continues in a kangaroo courtroom within the boundaries of Sanford Florida. Prosecution witnesses are making the case for Zimmerman’s attorneys, who are picking them apart one by one. Plaintiff witnesses appear unprepared, ill-informed to subject matters under discussion and deceptive on cross examination. Prosecutors have a mountain of exculpatory evidence, which displays Zimmerman’s innocence. Yet an orchestrated rush to judgment by media moguls and an out of control Department of Justice caused this mock trial to go forward. Trayvon Martin’s death is a tragedy no doubt, but the fraudulent substance of this case should never have seen the inside of a courtroom. Trayvon Martin’s parents have profited handsomely from this egregious event, receiving a multiple million dollar settlement from the community where he died. Neither guilt nor innocence were on the minds of community leaders when they forked out the money. Instead, reprisal in some format was their greatest fear.  Martin’s parents continue their travels to receive support, while the case is still hot.                 


Race has been the central core of this prosecution. Plaintiff’s attorneys have stumbled in their attempts to flood the jury’s ears with any element of race they could bring to bear in this case. The ugliness of the prosecutions overreach to find an innocent man guilty goes to a deeper issue, plaintiff attorneys manufactured a racial issue to move this case forward, enabled by the media. In the event the prosecution had one ounce of honesty within its legal team they would have stated Zimmerman’s lack of knowledge of Trayvon’s race. As a reminder this horrific event occurred in the early evening hours of the 26th of February 2012. Darkness was encroaching the area involved, accompanied by rain. George Zimmerman initiated his ill-fated follow of Trayvon without any preconceived notion of his race. Crime in the community was on an upswing and neighborhood watch groups were attempting to get a handle on the problem. In Zimmerman’s mind Trayvon appeared suspicious and he followed him. The rest is history. The Department of Justice forced a case based on race down Florida’s proverbial throat. In essence, the Justice Department and Eric Holder are on Trial.  With their win at all costs attitude Zimmerman’s innocence is secondary. Accusing Zimmerman of a racial hate crime, when all the facts point in another direction, displays a Department of Justice that has no sense of righteousness or morality. When George Zimmerman wins this case and he will, Holder should be forced to relinquish his position. Unfortunately, Holder has immunity from prosecution, yet he deserves the same legal wrath he brought to bear on Zimmerman.
