Zimmerman, not guilty……Al Sharpton waste no time Race Baiting
Al is a real good double speak artist, at least he is consistent. I am sure you will read a story somewhere that recaps this trial, I have been following it daily. We must go with what was presented in the trial and accept the jury’s decision, Al clearly cannot accept this because he says it is an “atrocity”, the worst he has ever seen (in his words). It has been established Trayvon attacked Zimmerman, he omits this fact in his statement because it does not fit his reality. I think Zimmerman acted stupidly by just being there in the first place, but he did not murder this young man, he defended himself, I would have done the same thing.
He repeats a “slap in the face” again in the 3rd paragraph, this is inciting, and what does he mean by disciplined and strategic, move on to the next step. We will see what happens tomorrow….
The only inconsistencies in this case were the prosecution which was a joke and they knew it was from the beginning because they had no case and did not want to prosecute in the first place. Sharpton says the defense was full of inconsistencies, he is full of shit or just lieing or just plain stupid.
Al Sharpton: ‘This Is An Atrocity…a Slap in the Face to Those That Believe in Justice’
Jul. 13, 2013 10:51pm
Rev. Al Sharpton reacted to the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict by calling it an “atrocity” and “a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country.”
“I think that this is an atrocity, I think that it is, it is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen,” Sharpton said. “What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you could be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and iced tea home to your brother and be killed and someone can claim self-defense, having been exposed with all kinds of lies, all kinds of inconsistencies.”
“We had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when he’s exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted. This is a sad day in the country. I think that we clearly must move on to the next step in terms of the federal government and in terms of the civil courts. Clearly we want people to be disciplined and strategic, but this is a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country,” he said.
Sharpton also posted this statement:
“The acquittal of George Zimmerman is a slap in the face to the American people but it is only the first round in the pursuit of justice. We intend to ask the Department of Justice to move forward as they did in the Rodney King case and we will closely monitor the civil case against Mr. Zimmerman. I will convene an emergency call with preachers tonight to discuss next steps and I intend to head to Florida in the next few days.”
A few other things to consider.
Looks like they took this kid seriously…..
Teen Charged with Felony for Tweeting ‘Mass Homicide’ Threat If Zimmerman Acquitted
A Chicago-area teen has been charged with a felony for tweeting that he’d shoot everyone in his town if George Zimmerman is set free, the Lake County News-Sun reported.
The tweet via Topsy:
The News-Sun noted the tweet was taken down…but apparently too late; the group Anonymous reportedly let the police know about it:
Zion [Illl.] Police Department Deputy Chief Steve Dumyahn said the 15-year-old Zion-Benton Township High School sophomore was brought to the police station and his parents were furious.
Dispatch started receiving calls, including one from Kansas, the FBI, and Fox News who told Zion they heard it from a caller in Washington.
“There is no credibility to the threat. He has no weapons and no access to weapons,” he said.
“You can’t make statements like that because people will take it serious, and you have to. Law enforcement has to take it seriously,” said Dumyahn.
The teen has been charged with disorderly conduct, a Class 4 felony.
A bit of a battle ensued after the tweet, with the alleged culprit pleading innocence. Here’s one exchange:
And now these Twitch I wonder if they took any of these serious…..
‘If Zimmerman Get Off, Ima Go Kill a White Boy’: Trayvon Martin Supporters Make Shocking Threats Ahead of Verdict
Now the icing on the cake, another guy trying to do the right thing gets screwed by our government. This says a lot about the corruption in the Florida courts today, one thing Sharpton said that was right, you don’t get justice in court any longer.
State Attorney Employee Fired After Raising Questions About Whether Prosecutors Withheld Evidence From Zimmerman Defense
Jul. 13, 2013 1:55pm
An employee with the Florida state attorney’s office who testified that he was concerned prosecutors withheld certain evidence from George Zimmerman’s defense team has been fired.
Ben Kruidbos was the information technology director when he testified last month that he was worried prosecutors didn’t turn over information about deleted images and text messages Kruidbos recovered from Trayvon Martin’s cell phone, including photos of a hand holding a gun and a plant that looked like marijuana.
The Florida Times-Union reported Kruidbos was hand-delivered a letter at 7:30 a.m. Friday stating he “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.” Kruidbos had been on paid leave since May, after he was identified by name in a court hearing.
Kruidbos, through his attorney, had informed Zimmerman’s defense that the information from Martin’s cell phone existed, CNN reported.
Kruidbos testified in court that he was worried about losing his job but said it was worth the risk of coming forward.
According to the Times-Union, the letter informing Kruidbos he had been fired claims he did an unsatisfactory job of overseeing the information technology office and that he violated public records laws by wiping clean a computer assigned to him.
A six-person jury entered its second day of deliberations Saturday over whether to convict Zimmerman in the fatal shooting death of Martin, 17. Zimmerman, who says he shot Martin in self-defense, faces a potential lifetime prison sentence if found guilty.
