“George Zimmerman Will Never Be Convicted of Murdering Trayvon Martin”

May 22, 2012

I was stunned to see that headline at the ultra-liberal Daily Beast! More:

With last week’s release of a trove of information about the Trayvon Martin killing, three things are now apparent.

First, special prosecutor Angela Corey’s statement last month that public pressure had nothing to do with the decision to bring charges against George Zimmerman is exposed for the bunk that it always was.

[…]

Second, if the case against Zimmerman ever reaches a jury (which it probably won’t), there is no chance he will be convicted. Of course, Corey is an experienced prosecutor who must know this, which only further reveals the role public pressure played in her decision to indict.

Why won’t Zimmerman be convicted? Because we now know everything the jury is going to know. We’ve read the reports, seen the photos, heard the tapes. The only way the jury could learn something not contained in the documents, photographs, and medical reports released last week would be if witnesses with personal knowledge were to testify. But that will not happen, because Martin is dead, and Zimmerman won’t speak.

So here is what the jury will learn: Zimmerman called police frequently to report supposedly suspicious characters, and every time he called he was suspicious about someone black. It will learn that a 911 tape records someone shouting “Help!” right before Zimmerman fired the single fatal shot from point-blank range. Some witnesses say the person screaming was Martin, some say it was Zimmerman, and the FBI’s analyst says the recording is too distorted to tell. (Notably, the newly released documents reveal that an investigator spoke with Martin’s father, Tracy, and asked whether the screaming on the tape was his son’s, he responded, “No.”)

The jury will also learn that the back of Zimmerman’s shirt was wet, as if he had been lying on his back in the wet grass, that he had apparently been struck in the face, and that he was bleeding from a gash on the back of his head. It will learn that police officers asked him at least three times whether he wanted to go to the hospital—confirming contemporaneously that he had visible physical injuries.

A second-year law student could identify enough doubt here to preclude a criminal conviction. A superstar lawyer, which is what Zimmerman now has, could get an acquittal in his sleep. Zimmerman’s defense will be that he felt threatened by Martin, that his fear was reasonable because Martin was hitting him, and that he was therefore justified in firing. Florida’s lenient Stand Your Ground law makes all of this close to a slam-dunk.

    The Dummycrats will be sad to hear about this because Sharpton/Jackson promised revenge.

    And the gullible fools of the liberal progressive left ALWAYS believe Sharpton/Jackson/Obama/NAACP and the other leftist race pimps.

      Trayvon was a hot-head thug, and it got him killed when Zimmerman was forced to defend himself against the thugs vicious attacks.

      Only the race baiters will try to portray that violent thug as some innocent child.

      And only the gullible bleeding heart liberal types will be dumb enough to fall for it

    Agree, and I’d be happy to take the money of any chump who’d be dumb enough to wager otherwise.

    You’re too dumb to realize how Poli is toying with you. You can’t stop yourself from taking the bait.

    • Liberalism is a turd swirling around the drain on May 23, 2012 at 9:28 am

      I see that you’re still too stupid to realize that it is YOU, who cannot stop yourself from taking the bait.

      Priceless!

  7. Pot to Kettle - YOU'RE BLACK on May 22, 2012 at 9:52 am

    You can’t stop yourself from taking the bait.

    YOU appear to be the one “taking the bait”, troll, but you’re too dumb to realize it.

    LOL! Get a clue, moron.

    Priceless.

    The Ace, can’t seem to stay under his rock, hiding behind sock puppets.

    Unhinged.

    Priceless.

    • all nazis enjoy striking things out on May 22, 2012 at 10:56 am

      You’ll find them all though, and they will all be struck.

      It’s what you types enjoy.

      • anonymous un-RINO loves nazis on May 22, 2012 at 11:20 am

        He mentions them all the time. Kind of creepy though.

        • all nazis enjoy striking things out on May 22, 2012 at 12:10 pm

          Maybe it’s time for you people to liquidate the guy, then.

          You enjoy that, apparently.

    • Liberalism is a turd swirling around the drain on May 23, 2012 at 9:26 am

      Funny thing for someone to say as their hiding behind a sock puppet.

      Way to expose your hypocrisy, idiot.

      Also, love how to stamp your feet and throw your little hissy fits by striking out comments that you cannot defend against. Really reveals you for the childish brat that you truly are.

      Suck on the proven failure of your idiotic liberal ideology, troll.

      We will be rid of your ilk in a few short months. Count on it, asshole.

  9. Conservatives are shrill on May 22, 2012 at 10:10 am

    George Zimmerman Will Never Be Convicted of Murdering Trayvon Martin

    So what? The National exposure is what is important, even if the far right and far left are shrill in their discussion.

    Clowns.

    • LibTURDS are swirling the drain on May 24, 2012 at 9:26 am

      “The National exposure is what is important”

      I agree. The National exposure, which demonstrates that liberals are nothing but a bunch of race-pimp who gleefully exploit the black race for votes and then throw them all back under the bus after they’re done exploiting them…

      Well, that’s the kind of National exposure that this is actually revealing – and it’s costing Obama big-time because it’s backfiring right into your smug liberal faces.

      Something I find Hilarious, by the way!

      LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To give credit where credit is due, Conservatives are shrill is a Clown College failure–he kept inserting his air horn in a bodily orifice while performing.
