The show trial of Zimmerman is now over, the jury has turned in the wrong result. An obvious thug, with a history of violence, with a telephone record filled with conversations dealing with violence and procuring firearms, was killed while pounding Zimmerman’s face to a pulp. The power of the narrative is so strong, which says that every black shot by a white is innocent, that millions of Americans think that Trayvon Martin, a semi-moronic violent house robber, is a victim, rather than Zimmerman.
The US Department of Justice promises a “review”.
As Barack Obama issued a statement from the White House calling for calm on all sides, the department of justice said federal prosecutors would now examine the case for a Federal prosecution under civil rights legislation.
“Experienced federal prosecutors will determine … whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the department’s policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial,” the statement said.
In the best-known precedent, Federal race laws were used to convict several police officers who had been acquitted of the infamous beating of Rodney King. However legal analysts have warned that the race element in the Martin case is far less clear-cut.
Zimmerman is a half-Hispanic of Peruvian descent. He had to be made “white”. He holds racially tolerant attitudes and tutors kids. Obviously this all a cover for racialist attitudes. He “profiled” Trayvon Martin, meaning he committed the thoughtcrime of seeing a black punk casing the neighborhood for robbing opportunities, and confronted him. Bad, bad man. When Trayvon Martin pounded his head and was intent of breaking his skull open, Zimmerman shot once. I am amazed that in the circumstances, he did not empty his gun into him.
