Justice for Zimmerman?

Lloyd Marcus asks "What about Justice for Zimmerman?" in a piece on American Thinker:

I keep thinking of an episode of the 1973 TV show Kojak: The Marcus-Nelson Murders.  Homicide detective Kojak suspects that the black teenager accused of murdering two white girls is being framed by his fellow detectives.

The case gets a lot of media attention; politics and careers enter the mix.  The frightened accused black kid pleads his innocence to detective Kojak who believes him.  Kojak educates the defendant to the cold, harsh reality of the situation; he informs the kid that despite his innocence, the case has become such a political hot button, and because the police held the kid in jail for so long, he must be found guilty of something.

I see this same scenario developing in the Martin/Zimmerman case.

Most Americans desire a fair and just outcome when it comes to this tragedy.  But Lord help us if the evidence proves Zimmerman innocent.  If Zimmerman is ruled not guilty and allowed to walk, I foresee Rodney King-type riots in the streets.  Thus, is Zimmerman's fate already sealed?  Will a jury decide that Zimmerman must be declared guilty of something?

While Al Sharpton, the New Black Panthers, and all of the other racist race-hustling usual suspects clamor for justice for Trayvon Martin, I wonder if justice is even possible for George Zimmerman.

Tragically and frighteningly, we live in a time in which the law and truth appears to be losing relevance in America.

[. . .]

 Regardless of if the evidence proves otherwise, Zimmerman will be found guilty of "something" to avoid riots in the streets.  We are talking political correctness on steroids.

Folks, I am not saying that Zimmerman is innocent.  I do not know.  I am simply saying that in these morally bankrupt times in which we live, I am concerned that facts and truth are becoming irrelevant.

Since Zimmerman posted $150,000 bail, here are just a few of the shocking tweets calling for violence against him.

Ima kill Zimmerman myself *loads semi* where he at
I think imma personally kill George Zimmerman...anyone's welcome to join (: ...Leggggoooo !
 Someone pass me a gun, imma go follow zimmerman, shoot and kill him and say #imstandingmyground
Lets kill #zimmerman
They let Zimmerman free lets kill that MF
George Zimmerman Released From Jail 150,000 Bail! WTF!  Ni**a You Are About To Die, Start Writing Your Will!...
  Have you heard the slightest hint of media outrage over the threats on Zimmerman's life?

Have you heard any rebuke, or any hint of the Obama administration taking action against these thugs?  Oh, I know...they are still busy investigating Ted Nugent for passionately encouraging voters to vote Obama out in November.

 But seriously, folks, the media's and Obama administration's passivity regarding the threats on Zimmerman's life is shocking and should be an eye-opener to us all.  Anyone on the left's excrement list can expect no justice and no peace.

Go read the rest

These are come conclusions that I have reached about the Zimmerman/Martin affair:

1. While understanding that there could be some surprise evidence which proves conclusively that Mr. Zimmerman did murder Martin I have to say that the evidence which has become public knowledge to this date leads me to the conclusion that George Zimmerman acted properly and shot in lawful self-defense.  

2. The stand-your-ground law in Florida did not come into play here because when you have been knocked to the ground and someone is sitting on top of you slamming your head into the concrete you have exhausted any conceivable "need to retreat".

3. The Special Prosecutor is a whore who is attempting to feed an innocent man (a man she knows to be innocent) into the meat-grinder of the criminal justice system in order to gain political advantage for herself in a tough reelection campaign.  She should face exactly the same fate as former Durham DA (and now ex-convict) Mike Nifong - disbarment and a prison sentence.

4. The Governor of Florida, Republican though he may be, is a poltroon and should be voted out of office - preferably in a Republican primary.  The decision to appoint a special prosecutor was nothing but a craven capitulation to the Disney corporation and various tourist based business operators who feared the potential for violence if Zimmerman was not charged.  The pressure on the judge, prosecution and the jury to produce some kind of guilty verdict will be enormous.

5. Street gangs, both black and Hispanic, are even now planning Rodney King-style riots for Florida cities for the same reason that gangs in LA planned the riots there - as a cover for massive looting.  Just as the LA gangs planned to riot regardless of the jury verdict the gangs in Florida will do all in their power to trigger mass violence in larger Florida cities no matter how the Zimmerman case plays out in court.

6. The governor of Florida, whom we have already established is a coward, will lack the courage and resolution to deploy the National Guard from the beginning of the court proceedings (in case the whole thing is dismissed early by an honest judge - as it should be) and probably not even after the jury goes into deliberations (if the farce is allowed to go on that long).  Any forceful response will be too little, too late and only after mobs of enraged "youths" are burning down the Magic Kingdom and the Miami beachfront hotels.

7. Whatever damage is done will be blamed on Florida's stand-your-ground law, even though it has absolutely nothing to do with this case (see point 2).

8. Democrats will continue to exploit this tragedy for political purposes and the GOP will utterly lack the courage to respond in any meaningful way.  Expect the Romney campaign to come out in opposition to stand-your-ground laws.  

9. I know that Ann Coulter has written a column making many of the same points that I have made about Zimmerman/Martin but when Romney comes out against stand-your-ground we can expect her to write a column explaining that opposition to stand-your-ground is the "real" conservative position and that if Florida had gun laws like Massachusetts had under Mitt Romney none of this would be happening.

10. Some professor at MIT will study the shape Coulter had to twist herself into to write the column mentioned in point 9 and win a Nobel Prize for opening new ground in the study of multidimensional physics.

11. On issues of race black Americans live in an alternate reality where it is still 1938 and lynchings still happen on an almost nightly basis.  How else to explain the absolute uncritical acceptance of Twanna Brawley's utterly ridiculous story about being kidnapped and gang raped by white police officers or their apparently sincere belief that Treyvon Martin was an innocent little black child who was stalked and gunned down by a white racist.

12. While most people will be inclined to believe that which tends to confirm their most deeply held convictions about the world the mainstream media and the race industry in America have proven that they will also come right out and lie to make others believe it as well.  How can anyone still believe one word which comes out of the network news, most daily newspapers or wire services on any cable news outlet other than FOX (and FOX hasn't covered itself with glory in this matter either).?

More lessons can be learned from this tragic affair but let us please remember that the most important fact is that an innocent man is being charged with 2nd Degree Murder by an utterly corrupt special prosecutor and that the entire weight of the mainstream media, the racial grievance industry and, it would seem, the political establishment of the state of Florida and the United States government is going to be focused on getting a conviction regardless of the facts of the case.

Pray for George Zimmerman, and for our nation.
