My sympathy for Trayvon Martin’s parents is wearing very thin

Is it just me, or are these two and their campaign of lies well past tiresome? Sorry, but losing their son does not give them Carte Blanche to spread bald-faced lies in an effort to hamper American’s right to self-defense. Bob Owens sounds pretty fed up with their act too He posts their latest batch of lies from Change.Org

A reader forwarded along this email he got from Change.Org:

Last year, our son Trayvon Martin was stalked, chased down and killed by George Zimmerman, and Zimmerman received no punishment whatsoever. That’s in large part because Florida is one of at least 21 states with some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ law which enables people like George Zimmerman to claim self-defense.

‘Stand Your Ground’ was never meant to give aggressors the opportunity to get away with murder, but that is what happened when our son Trayvon was killed. After Trayvon’s death, law enforcement used the law as an excuse to refuse to arrest George Zimmerman. Even worse, the jury in the case was instructed to think of what Zimmerman did as self-defense, even though Zimmerman ignored instructions from the police and instigated conflict with our son, who was just trying to get home to his father.

We are shocked and heartbroken by the jury’s decision to allow our son’s killer to go free. Despite our despair, we must honour Trayvon’s legacy by doing all that we can to protect other young people from being targeted, pursued, and senselessly murdered.

We started a petition on Change.org calling on 21 governors whose states have some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to review those laws and amend them so that people who instigate conflicts — people like George Zimmerman — won’t be able to use these laws to get away with murder.

We are not the only ones calling for ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to be reviewed. President Obama spoke out on the need for review, and prominent Republicans like Senator John McCain havejoined him. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue, it’s not ‘black’ or ‘white’ issue, it’s a wrong and right issue.

This is a matter of making sure that no other family will ever have to go through what we have been through. No parents should ever have to know what it feels like to watch your child’s killer walk free.

Our hearts broke on the night of February 26, 2012 when George Zimmerman killed our son — and we were stunned and devastated when the police refused to arrest Zimmerman. We petitioned for Zimmerman’s arrest on Change.org, and after more than 2 million people joined our call, Zimmerman was charged with our son’s murder. We felt so much closer to justice for Trayvon, and so grateful for the support of those who signed our petition.

But on July 13, 2013, our hearts broke again when the jury set Zimmerman free. Our hearts broke because it is so hard to accept that we can’t protect Trayvon anymore. But we can fight to make sure that this never happens again.

Please sign our petition calling for a thorough review of all ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to prevent killers like George Zimmerman from going free.

We want to say thank you to all of you who have stood up for our son. Because of all your efforts, Trayvon’s life is celebrated all over the world. Please continue to stand with us as we fight to ensure that his legacy is to leave behind a safer and more peaceful world for all our sons and daughters.

Thank you,
Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton

Wow, how many lies can they pack into a few paragraphs? And how much emotional appeal, sans any facts of course, because, frankly the facts pointed to their son being the aggressor, and not Zimmerman. But, I know, I, and everyone else is supposed to stay silent, and not dare criticize them because they are grieving parents, who have absolute moral authority right?Not no, but HELL NO! What they are doing is not only wrong, but it is evil. They are actively campaigning to take away the right of self-defense. And, if successful, their will be MORE grieving parents, not fewer.

Bob Owens offers similar thoughts. Is it all about $$$$$?

40 prosecution and 19 defense witnesses painted an entirely different story, of course, which supported George Zimmerman’s story as he told it.

George Zimmerman stalked no-one. If he did, crazed prosecutor Angela Corey would have charged him.

Nor did Zimmerman chase anyone: their multiple-drug-abusing, gun-dealing, street-fighting thug of a son, who enjoyed hitting people, lurked in the dark for four minutes watching George Zimmerman before he went after Zimmerman, a fact undisputed in the case.

Rachel Jeantel confirmed Zimmerman’s story that Trayvon emerged from the darkness behind Zimmerman as the shorter, softer neighborhood watchman was on the way back to his truck, and as Jeantel herself said when speaking with Piers Morgan after the trial, she believes Trayvon not only initiated the confrontation by coming up to Zimmerman from behind, he threw the first punch… and every one after that, despite cries for help from Zimmerman and John Good’s shouting at Trayvon to stop his relentless attack.

The reality that Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton know in their hearts is that their son was an attempted murderer, who was only stopped from achieving his goal because the shorter, weaker man had a gun.

“Stand Your Ground” was never brought up in the courtroom during the trial, and Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton know why: it wasn’t relevant to the case. It’s impossible to claim you were “standing your ground” when you were ambushed, sucker punched, and mounted, with no way to escape.

Every major claim in their email is a lie.

Apparently Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton have discovered that there is some money to be made from the gun control movement. After all, they’ve already “earned” more than $1 million from their victimology tour.

What else would they say for a few dollars more?

 

FL State Attorney Fires Whistleblower Who Claimed Prosecution Concealed Evidence In Zimmerman Case

Whistleblower, Who Reported Prosecution Concealment Of Evidence In Zimmerman Case, Is Fired – Weasel Zippers

It’s the Special Prosecutor in this case that needs to be fired.

.

Via FTU Jacksonville:

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

In an interview Friday, Kruidbos denied the allegations in the letter, which was written by Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office.

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

“I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being.”

Zimmerman Prosecutor Indicted For Allegedly Falsifying Arrest Warrant, Complaint

Zimmerman Prosecutor Indicted For Allegedly Falsifying Arrest Warrant And Complaint – Before It’s News

Florida State’s Attorney Angela Corey has been indicted by a citizens’ grand jury, convening in Ocala, Florida, over the falsification of the arrest warrant and complaint that led to George Zimmerman being charged with the second degree murder of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.

.

The indictment of Corey, which was handed down last week (see www.citizensgrandjury.com), charges Corey with intentionally withholding photographic evidence of the injuries to George Zimmerman’s head in the warrant she allegedly rushed to issue under oath, in an effort to boost her reelection prospects. At the outset of this case, black activists such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who whipped up wrath against Zimmerman, demanded that he be charged with murder, after local police had thus far declined to arrest him pending investigation.

Following Corey’s criminal complaint charging Zimmerman, legal experts such as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz condemned her for falsely signing an arrest affidavit under oath, which intentionally omitted exculpatory evidence consisting of the photographs showing the injuries Zimmerman sustained, and rushing to charge him with second degree murder under political pressure. Dershowitz called her actions unethical and themselves crimes (http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/drop-george-zimmerman-murder-charge-article-1.1080161).

Larry Klayman, a former U.S. Justice Department prosecutor, a Florida lawyer since 1977, and now the “citizens’ prosecutor” presided over the Ocala grand jury and said this: “The Supreme Court has confirmed that the grand jury belongs to the American people, not the three branches of government. (504 U.S. 36, 48 (1992) (quoting United States v. R. Enterprises, Inc., 498 U.S. 292, 297 (1991)).

By indicting Florida State Attorney Angela Corey, the people are exercising their God given rights, recognized by our Founding Fathers, to mete out justice when the political and legal establishment subverts the rule of law. Hopefully, this indictment will serve as a warning to the political and legal establishment that they are not above the law.

Ironically, Corey will now be tried and likely convicted for her alleged crimes – which resulted in Zimmerman being charged under false pretenses, now coming home to roost during Zimmerman’s on-going trial. Corruption cannot be tolerated, particularly by law enforcement officers who are elected by the people to serve their ends, not the law enforcement officer’s political ends.”

Alan Dershowitz on Zimmerman affidavit

let us just say that Dershowitz is not impressed, at all. He makes the case that this is about politics, and I think he is correct H/T Donald Douglas

William Jacobson has more on another popular “fact” about this case. That whole Zimmerman said “coons” business? Not so fast

One of hotest topics of argument has been whether George Zimmerman said “f-ing coons” under his breath on the 911 tape.  The left-blogosphere has used the alleged racial epithet endlessly to paint this as a racially motivated hate crime.

CNN used three different audio experts to analyze the tape, but one of whom found “f-ing coons,” another “f-ing cold,” and another “f-ing punks.”

In the Affidavit of Probable Cause, which just was made available, State of Florida investigators swore under oath that Zimmerman used the term “f-ing punks”:

For the investigators to make such a factual assertion under oath in such an important document certainly means the prosecution has conducted its own analysis and has concluded that the term “coons” was not used.

Great point that if the prosecution is saying this then…… Of course, the Left will continue to use the lie, you can count on that.

One more thing here. To me the press conference that came out during Angela Corey’s press conference.

First is that I am certain that this is a move to bow to political pressure. I am so certain because of this comment from Corey

“We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. We prosecute based on the facts of any given case, as well as the laws of the state of Florida.

Translation? Of course this is ALL about bowing to public pressure

Next is how giddy Corey looked during her press conference. To me this raises the questions about her credibility. I really hate to think that Corey would bring charges just to help her political career, but politics breeds cynicsm in me

Zimmerman to be charged with second degree murder

I am not surprised. There is tremendous political pressure to charge Zimmerman. The problem with prosecutors bowing to political pressure is that politics is not supposed to enter into it, at all. Perhaps the charge is justified, I am sure there is more evidence than we have been apprised of. But, my personal belief is that the special prosecutor bowed to the political pressure.
