In light of the Zimmerman acquittal, I have just one question; who cares?
Seriously, does it matter who won and who lost (aside from the defendant, of course)? The attorneys for the jury all agreed who should be there and they all agreed to abide by their decision. The prosecution and defense each brought acceptable witnesses and, as far as my knowledge, there were no causes to mistrial. The jury then deliberated and decided that George Zimmerman did, in fact, act in self-defense.
So then what happened? I'm glad you asked. Well, for one thing, the attorneys for the State continue to call Zimmerman a "murderer." Although I suppose they have a right to say whatever the hell they damn well please, it seems a bit of bad form to libel someone who was just proven not to be a cold-blooded killer. In addition, in the days following the verdict, there have been at least 4 instances (Oakland, Baltimore, central Mississippi and Los Angeles) where either a white man or a Mexican was attacked by a gang of black men, each calling it "revenge for Trayvon."
We also have the pundits, if they can be called that, on MSNBC who judged Zimmerman guilty before the blood was even dry. The worst being Al Sharpton, who himself has been looking for something to take people's minds of Freddie's Fashion Mart and Tawana Brawly. Sharpton started off by claiming immediately that it was a "travesty of justice" and that the jury - the one agreed upon by both sides - invalid and racially unacceptable. Of course, Sharpton must have been watching a different trial. He and Jesse Jackson both fumed that Trayvon Martin was denied a jury of "his peers." Perhaps it's Sharpton and Jackson's own experience of being the accused, but this trial wasn't about justice for Trayvon - it was about George Zimmerman. Having an all-Black jury (which is surely what the race-baitors wanted) would not have given Zimmerman a "jury of his peers."
Or maybe it would have? What difference does it make? If they are American, they are American. But places like MSNBC, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and all the other race-centric people can't see beyond color.
It is always a tragedy when a young person loses their life. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter that they victim was buying ingredients to make a potent drug, called "Lean" or "Sizzurp." To the average joe on the street, Trayvon was just a sweet kid who wanted a cool drink and a bag of candy. It didn't matter that he had marijuana in his system. Hell, it didn't even matter that Martin was smacking Zimmerman's head - repeated, mind you - on the concrete. Nope, to the average person, Martin was just an innocent Black child killed by Zimmerman in a fit of racial anger.
At least that's how the leftist lunatics at MSNBC are portraying it. Nothing - and this is a big word here - NOTHING else matters. That is why you have attacks, threatening tweets and in no doubt, murder on the hands of those who stir up this anger.
They say George Zimmerman is a free man. Well, as long as the New Black Panther racists, the Congressional Black Congress and race-baitors along the lines of Jackson and Sharpton continue to disregard the truth and reality, he is anything but free. Like Salman Rushdie, he will forever have to to hide from the lunatics who wish him dead. Not for the crime he committed, but for the crimes of the past. Reverend Jeremiah Wright was correct. Since we elected Barack Obama to prove we are not a nation of racists any longer, it seems the crimes of the past have come home to roost. It doesn't matter what happened that night in 2012. It never really did matter.
Nobody really cares.
