Zimmermanís Fate and Looming Race Riots
frontpagemag.com ^ | July 3, 2013 | Arnold Ahlert

Posted on 07/03/2013 3:09:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The murder case against George Zimmerman is rapidly unraveling, due in large part to the compelling testimony of key witnesses. Ordinarily, there is nothing unusual about compelling testimony changing the course of a trial, but in this case it is witnesses presented by the prosecution that are bolstering the case for the defendant. Thus, with each passing day it is becoming more apparent that the real reason for bringing this case to trial was to assuage the media-driven concerns of the racial grievance industry, led by chief arsonists Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. Shamefully aiding and abetting them is the racially polarized Justice Department led by Attorney General Eric Holder.

We begin with the witnesses. Billed as the state’s “star witness,” 19-year-old Rachel Jeantel, the last person to talk to Trayvon Martin before his death, proved to be a major embarrassment. If there is a racial element to this case, other than the prosecution’s unsubstantiated accusation that Zimmerman “profiled” Martin, Jeantel introduced it during her testimony. She revealed that Trayvon Martin had referred to Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracker,” even as she subsequently denied it was a racial term. Another compelling part of her testimony was in regard to a letter she had supposedly written to Martin’s mother describing the chain of events that led to Trayvon’s death. During questioning by defense attorney Don West, Jeantel was forced to admit that, despite signing it, she was incapable of reading the cursive script in which it was written.

West further grilled Jeantel about her inconsistent statements to police, and the discrepancies in her testimony. Jeantel blamed them on questions posed by law enforcement officials, and the lengths of the interviews. As to the omission of details, she claimed she was trying to spare the Martin family....

Why I think Zimmerman is going down:

As I’ve said before, I don’t know what happened that night, nor do I know who did or started what.

However, I do believe Zimmerman is being railroaded and has been from the start.

The Media has been complacent in pushing a narrative all over the country that is convicting a man before much of the evidence is even made public and they are letting the race pimps like Hutchinson get away with saying whatever they want.

The really sad part is that if the evidence ends up pointing to this being self defense, then the charges will probably get plead down from 2nd degree murder to manslaughter and because this involved a firearm, Zimmerman will probably still have to go to prison for 30 years. This is why the prosecution overreached in the first place and with the help of the media, they will hand the race baiters in the country a sentence THEY want regardless of the truth or evidence presented.

This man is being railroaded and it’s just another fine example of how out of control, dishonest, and corrupt the media in this country has become.

BREAKING NEWS – Los Angeles, California- While receiving an award from BET, Jamie Foxx states that if George Zimmerman is acquitted, then people from every major U.S. city should “publicly display their outrage”. He went on to explain that rioting, looting, and indiscriminate violence is acceptable as long as you feel within your heart it’s for a good cause.

Don’t know if it’s true, but it sure wouldn’t surprise me.

This is more evidence of the evil socialist rats who are riding this nation into hell!

If this man is railroaded for saving his life then it’s the other colored folks who need to rise up and riot!

There'll be no rioting if GZ gets at least 20 years.If he doesn't riots are,at the very least,distinctly possible.

There won’t be any riots because the defense so demolished the prosecution’s case without even going on offense that the Trayvonistas will be ashamed to show their faces in public.

But it never works that way. The ferals riot whenever they don’t get their way — justice be damned. But when civilized people are screwed over, we sit and take it.

This is part of the Ratchet Effect and part of the reason we are where we are today.

I heard an interesting bit of speculation — that the state didn’t really want to prosecute this case at all, so they’re sinking their own boat with bad witnesses.

However, I do believe the rioting will be real enough.

Isn't it against the law for inciting people to riot and commit mayhem??

If any of the scheme teamers from Jasmine Rand to Alvin Parks as much as open their mouths to complain they should be arrested for inciting a riot.

Jamie Fox is shockingly racist. He claims even the food served to the actors at films is racist.

Fried chicken? Racist. Or not fried chicken, trying to pretend you’re not racist.

You can’t win.

The riots have been cancelled.

The prosecution is even failing to prove their case to the worst agitators out there.

They're going to just order some take out and bitch amongst themselves when he's acquitted.

Based upon the evidence to date the judge should, upon proper motion, take this case from the jury. She won’t. I will be amazed if Zimmerman is acquitted. The goal of a corrupt judicial system is to get Zimmerman into the general prison population where the “Brotha’s” will take care of him out in the prison yard.

Why are no political leaders on the right or left, black or white (or white latino) publically stating riots are not acceptable, especially in response to a trial? Constitutionalists certainly should be raising this key issue in advance. But so should anyone who truly cares about a civil society.

The reason the minority community is this upset, is because they believe Trayvon was a good kid. There’s been virtually no news portraying him as a would be delinquent, beyond the known suspension. A meme being retweeted, is that Martin had scholarships waiting for him, was a model citizen and volunteered to help the community. Therefore, Zimmerman killed one of the good kids...

Understand that this is the media’s doing, and of course they went with the description the parents gave. But if all this was true,the outrage would be understandable.

If just before instructing the jury, the judge were to change the charge against George Zimmerman to that of murdering a Romulan aboard a Federation starship, the jury would still vote to convict. The fix is in.

But.....

What if King Zero and his minions are already working on a plan to fan the flames and stir up racial hatred? What if they want Zimmerman acquitted so they can use the ensuing rioting and civil unrest (that they will help to spark) to further clamp down on all of us (maybe even martial law)?

I wouldn't put it past the disgusting lump of moldy slime to think about doing such a thing. Anything to increase his power.

The riots are being planned at this moment. They will be bad ones too. Altanta, Jacksonville, Phillidelphia, newwark, Chicago, Oakland and LA—That’s my guess. People should be ready because its going to happen—No Justice, No peace.

If the media get the riots they so passionately desire, one hopes that the media are among the first victims. Kind of a Schadenfreude moment.

I'm so sick of this. It wouldn't take much to set off most cities; we get that. I'm going to make a crazy statement....since the cities are going to riot at some point anyway, it will be far better if authorities expect it and can be ready.

What I'd be most concerned about would be something more like spontaneous combustion between racial/ethnic groups at a crowded summer gathering. If there is any rioting when Zimmerman is not guilty, it gives the police an excuse to lock up the troublemakers for the rest of the summer.
