Much injustice has already been done–by the media, race baiters like Al Sharpton, and politicians like Barack “If I Had a Son” Obama, the sitting president of the USA (who’s now trying to walk it back).
Who envies these six citizens?
Here’s just one example of what these citizens on the jury and George Zimmerman are up against: [emphasis added to quotes]
The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”
“CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where there is real or perceived racial tensions.” …
It was reported Wednesday, according to documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, that from March 25 to April 12, CRS spent roughly $5,000 [of taxpayer money] upon being deployed to Sanford to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies “related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
The findings, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman. My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially-charged demonstrations.” …
Indeed, the taxpayers probably would rightly object, if they knew. However, most of the mainstream media have not reported these facts. Kudos to the Washington Times for reporting truth.
Here’s another example of what Zimmerman is up against. The judge disallowed most this evidence from being presented to the sequestered jury:
Nor do they know much about Trayvon Martin’s downward spiral after this father’s second divorce, when he was forced to leave the stepmother he grew up with most of his life. They believe in the cultivated image of a kid “carrying candy” and “iced tea,” and they resent speaking ill of the dead.
The truth is different. Martin had gone to the 7-11 to buy a cigar under the counter, which he and his friends used to fill with marijuana, called a “blunt.” He bought Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail [not tea] to lace with codeine from cough syrup to get high with, a druggy concoction called “Lean.” We know all this from his online chat with friends about blunts and Lean, testimony from his cousin to the police, and the store video camera.
Martin was not the small sweet-faced boy shown in the media photos, but a big, angry 17-year-old. He was recently suspended from school when they found that his backpack held burglary tools and 12 pieces of stolen women’s jewelry and a watch. It is not unlikely that he was out on that rainy night casing houses to burgle.
