Sanford, Fla. — A Factual Accounting — George Zimmerman, a 29-year-old Hispanic man, is charged with shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin while conducting “neighborhood watch” on Feb. 26, 2012.
Government sources have informed US~Observer that the Sanford Police Department had no intention of charging Zimmerman with a crime and that it wasn’t until African-Americans from across the United States started protesting that the State of Florida stepped into the picture and filed a groundless, even ridiculous charge of second-degree murder against Zimmerman. State Attorney Angela Corey was assigned by the State to bring the false charge.
Harvard Law Professor and renowned attorney Alan Dershowitz said it best when he indicated there were no legitimate grounds for filing a criminal charge of second-degree murder against Zimmerman and then claimed that the charge by Corey was politically motivated. Dershowitz continued, “She insisted that she is entitled to submit what, in effect, were half truths in an affidavit of probable cause…”
This writer can factually state that the charge was racially motivated as well and that Corey didn’t act alone in her decision to quell the uprising.
As we prepared to publish this article, the prosecution was beginning its second week of presenting evidence that proves Zimmerman’s innocence.
During Week One, the State’s star witness, Rachel Jeantel, told how Martin stated that he was being followed by a “creepy-ass cracker” (Zimmerman) and that this terminology was not a racial comment. She also admitted to lying at different times during this case. During her first day of testimony, Jeantel was blatantly rude and disrespectful to defense attorney Don West, yet she totally changed her demeanor for Day Two. Jeantel testified that she hadn’t talked with anyone about how she was testifying when questioned by West, which was presumably just another lie. Jeantel stated that Zimmerman hit Martin and then recanted when West cornered her. Jeantel then shocked everyone with common sense when she testified, she believes she “heard a wet grass sound” while on the phone with Martin. Enough said! Prosecution witness Jeantel made a perfect defense witness and provided more than reasonable doubt for Zimmerman’s jury.
The prosecution called John Good, an eyewitness to the altercation between Martin and Zimmerman. Good testified that Martin was on top of Zimmerman and he appeared to be punching him “MMA-style” (mixed martial arts). Prosecution witness Good also made the perfect defense witness and provided conclusive proof of Zimmerman’s innocence.
State witness Stacy Livingston, an emergency medical technician, subsequently treated Zimmerman’s injuries for about five minutes.
State witness Tim Smith, a Sanford police officer, testified that the back of Zimmerman’s jacket and pants were wet and that the back of the jacket had grass all over it. Smith was an excellent defense witness, providing much reasonable doubt.
State witness Jonathan Manalo, a member of the community, testified that he came on the scene and took cellphone pictures of Zimmerman’s injuries. Manalo stated that Zimmerman “got his butt beat,” but was “speaking clearly.” Manalo continued: “He had blood running down his nose from both nostrils and over his lips.” Again, this State witness made the perfect defense witness. Manalo provided much more than reasonable doubt for any jury. I could go on and on; however, proof is what it is and reasonable doubt is clearly reasonable doubt, unless you are “racially motivated” or prosecuting someone for “political gain.” Innocence is not white, black or Hispanic; innocence is conclusion based upon facts and state of mind.
Why did the State call all of these perfect defense witnesses to date, with more to come? Remember the 2012 election, when Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was publicly supporting Republican Mitt Romney for President, campaigning her heart out and obviously expecting a high level position in his Administration in return? Martin was shot in February 2012, and the election was held in November 2012: millions of African-American votes were at stake. Florida and Bondi stopped all the protests and the loss of many votes by charging Zimmerman, and now they are at least assisting with his defense. The jury verdict in this case is an absolute “fait accompli.”
It takes no genius to conclude why Florida is prosecuting an innocent George Zimmerman; it just takes an investigative journalist from the US~Observer.
