Zimmerman Acquitted, Media Guilty

A Column by the Editor
web posted July 15, 2013

COLUMN Saturday night the jury in the murder trial of George Zimmerman did exactly what legal experts and anyone with a brain expected, they found Zimmerman not guilty of any crime. There were no riots, unless you count the media's verbal rioting of how the jury released an already convicted cold blooded killer, that they themselves convicted over a year ago. Now the mainstream media and the NAACP want Obama to charge an innocent man with yet another crime.

For those who get their "news" from the mainstream "media", Zimmerman was a white guy who "profiled", "stalked", and then shot dead Trayvon Martin in cold blood. Forget the fact that Zimmerman is Hispanic. And Trayvon was just a "child", after all,  the media would only show pictures of Trayvon at the age of 11 or 12. Not the athletic 6-foot-plus 17-year-old football player. That didn't fit the media's template.

When the shooting took place it was a local crime. Police were called, investigators worked the incident and found no evidence to arrest Zimmerman. The Police Chief and prosecutors agreed and no charges were filed.

The police chief was later fired for refusing political pressure to arrest an innocent man when there was no evidence to show he committed a crime. The prosecutors were also replaced. Politics is what mattered, not the rule of law.

Over the ensuing 18 months the media, and even President - "if I had a son he'd look like Trayvon" - Obama, played the race card where it did not exist.

Networks were repeatedly caught editing Zimmerman's call to dispatchers to make him appear racist, when in fact he was just answering the dispatcher's questions. The following is just one of many examples: from NBC

Zimmerman: This guy looks like hes up to no good. He looks black.

However, here is what was actually said:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like hes up to no good. Or hes on drugs or something. Its raining and hes just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.

No bias there, so the "media" created it for you. And NBC was not alone. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, the New York Time, Boston Globe and others would bite one lie from the liberal players in the media and flood the airwaves and papers with more false reports than you can count - and many have yet to be retracted.

When the "white" label was exposed early on, the media just changed Zimmerman's race to "white Hispanic", when in truth, Zimmerman's biracial lineage came from a black great grandfather, not a white one. "Black" did not fit the media's template, so they stuck on "white", even though it was a known lie.

The media portrayed Martin as an "innocent teen" walking with an iced tea and Skiddles. In reality, Martin was well on his way to a life as a thug.

Martin's cell phone and internet postings revealed pictures of a mass of jewelry on a bed, him smoking pot, marijuana plants growing, holding a pistol (which he was too young to be allowed to have), texts bragging on fights he'd been in and photos of under aged naked girls (also illegal - it's called kiddie porn).

You know, the kind of stuff that just makes a momma proud. But don't worry, you, the American public did not need that information, and in fact it was suppressed from the jury by a life-long Democrat Judge. It might make Trayvon look bad.

No, despite the state withholding evidence from the defense and, with the help of a Democrat Judge, from the jury, the jury saw through the obvious lies and found Zimmerman not guilty of any crime.

But, as stated, the media and the race-baiters ignore reality and claim it was a "travesty of justice". No, it was justice, in a trial that should have never been in a courtroom.

NBC has already been sued by Zimmerman's attorneys for deformation and other cases are pending against other so-called "media" outlets for promulgating lies to convict Zimmerman of a crime he never committed.

At least some of the "media" will be the next to enter the courtroom trying to defend against the lies they intentionally told while hiding the truth. Sanctions are also being sought against the prosecutors as well for their part in hiding the truth.

Trayvon is dead. Zimmerman is free. Justice has been served, even if it was an injustice to Zimmerman to start with.
