Vanity: Martin Family Attorney 'Dog Whistles' Violence Against Bailed Out Zimmerman?
Friday, April 20, 2012 | Kristinn

Posted on 04/20/2012 9:11:39 AM PDT by kristinn

Following George Zimmerman's successful bail hearing in Sanford, Fl., today, Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump made statements at a courthouse press conference that sounded to me like veiled calls for violence against Zimmerman.

Crump repeatedly spoke about how the Martin family 'could not understand why the state was protecting' Zimmerman and used inflammatory language to describe Zimmerman getting bail. He also compared Zimmerman in a suit at the hearing to Trayvon wearing a suit in his coffin.

Crump is an officer of the court. He knows that defendants are presumed innocent and are afforded every measure to protect them during prosecution.

If I were involved in the case, I'd be moving to sanction Crump.

I thought the same thing when he advised against the bond as a way to protect Zimmerman. Also when he was pressing Mrs Zimmerman if there were threats against her.

His concern was touching....not

I’m not talking about the state prosecutor, but the private attorney for the Martin family. He only spoke outside the courtroom.

Do you have the address to file the complaint with state AG for Florida residense?

Also heard that ABC just released a photo of Zimmerman’s bloody head, taken minutes after the police arrived. Any one see it or have a link to it?

If you took Zimmerman out by hanging him from the nearest light post, these people would still not be satisfied. They also called his apology “self-serving.”

What took them so long? Did this photo just recently come into their possession?

No I didn’t see him. I was talking about the state’s attorney.

> why the state was protecting’ Zimmerman

Because this isn’t Zimbabwe (yet), and Zimmerman is innocent until PROVEN guilty.

The Martin lawyer’s tiny little mind with its turd world perspective can’t grok that.

I didn’t hear Crump’s comments. I’ve been looking for video.

Also waiting for comments from Obama’s “partner,” Sharpton.

Looks like George’s head was about to split across the middle. What took these photos so long to get out? How convenient they were hidden until after the arrest.
