Obama restarts hate crime investigation of Zimmerman

From the NYT:
Justice Department to Restart Hate Crime Investigation in Trayvon Martin’s Death 
By ERIC LIPTON

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department said Sunday that it was restarting its investigation into the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin to consider possible separate hate crime charges against George Zimmerman.

The federal inquiry, which was started shortly after the shooting last year but had been delayed while the state criminal trial in Florida was under way, was being restarted after civil rights leaders called on the Justice Department to re-examine the case. The leaders said Sunday that they remained convinced that the shooting had a racial element. Mr. Martin, 17, was black. 
“There is a pattern of George Zimmerman making dozens of calls to 911 over several years, frequently about young men of color,” Benjamin T. Jealous, the president of the N.A.A.C.P., said in an interview on Sunday. . ... 

Zimmerman is guilty of disparate impact in noticing things. Noticing things is a hate crime.
But the Obama administration’s Justice Department has been cautious in its use of the expanded law. In 2010, for example, it turned down calls by civil rights leaders to file charges in New York City in the 2006 death of Sean Bell, a 23-year-old black man who was fatally shot by police officers outside a Queens club just hours before he was to be married.

Yeah, but that's merely the little old NYPD. The Zimmerman Menace is the main threat to civil rights.

Earlier, Newsday reported:
The U.S. Justice Department, which opened an investigation into the George Zimmerman case Sunday, could charge him with federal civil rights violations, local attorneys said. 
While a Florida jury found neighorbood watch volunteer Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder, a federal probe would examine whether he violated Martin's civil rights when he fatally shot him Feb. 16, 2012, in Sanford, Fla. 
To prove such violations requires a different standard of evidence and law than what was used in the state case against Zimmerman. So a federal prosecution would not be double jeopardy, they said.
Robert Valli, a Garden City-based civil rights attorney said if a probe proceeds, the local federal prosecutor would likely seek a grand jury indictment on charges that Zimmerman violated the federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act. 
Valli said potential charges would be the government's "version of a homicide charge, coupled with the intention to do so because of the person's membership in a protected class."

Constitutionally speaking, wouldn't it just be simpler for Obama to order a drone strike on Zimmerman's condo?

There should be a two-track civil rights investigation. One on Zimmerman for racial hate-think. The second on Zimmerman as a victim of gay-bashing. What exactly did Trayvon Martin mean when he referred to Zimmerman as a "creepy-ass cracker" before assaulting him?

I remember the speculation about whether or not Jeffrey Dahmer ate so many black guys because he was racist, as if the reason why he chose who he killed and ate was Very Important to the judgment of his character.

We've found a group of "criminals" that now even the sex offenders can beat up and rape in the penitentiary with tacit approval. We might as well just bring back being drawn, quartered, and disemboweled for First Degree Racism

As someone remarked already, if he goes to Latin America there is a chance they won't agree to extradite him, because he was exonerated in a court.

Holder doesn't care about the optics of this. He is a fanatic - he will get the white brown whale. It's immutably decreed, as Ahab said.

In a way, Giulianism has been bad for American sense of reality. Even libs in the 70s and 80s were admitting they had a real problem with black crime.

But with reduction of crime in big cities white elite libs dwell, libs can indulge in Ken-Burns-ist fantasy and pretend that black crime is no big deal.

Not the case in Zimmerman's neighborhood.

As libs control the media, they control the narrative. Since they feel so much safer, they're wondering why the likes of Zimmerman are so afraid of black crime.

Could it be lots of blacks have been dumped in communities where people like Zimmerman live?

In terms of dealing with the massive amount of immigrants in the last 20 years, this case is better for the Republicans than passing that bill. Immigrants want nothing to do with blacks and they don't get nagged with any moral sanctimony about it. They're watching the Democrats as the party of black people, the only people everyone fears might start a riot. The Democrats are stuck with the blacks and immigrants from India or whereever, even the Hispanics, won't cast their lot with the blacks. Everyone can see where the racial demagoguing has gotten black people.

U guys are headed the South Africa route. Here criminals are presumed innocent until caught with the jewelry or blood-stained gun in their hands. And even then they get off coz there is nobody to test the DNA (whites have been kicked out of the police). When someone is convicted, they magically escape from prison.

White victims are usually investigated for stuff like not having a gun license, or being racist to their black staff.

Essentially the laws make it impossible to have black labour, which is why the unemployment rate is at 70%.

But this was the intended outcome of liberals anyway, I guess.

There's not much rattling around in your head, eh?

He was found not guilty of the crime he was charged with and the other one the judge agreed that the State could add at the last minute (murder 2 and manslaughter). He was not found not guilty of any and all crimes he might or might not have committed.

Of course, I do agree that he is also not guilty of any hate crimes either, but Holder wants a piece of action. (Tad would give him some if he were to just ask.)

I live and work in an area that is over 2/3 black and immigrant Hispanic Hispanic. I can't afford to be politically correct, nor is it possible to with reality in front of me eyes all day. Sullivan may have a thing for black men, but I would bet anything he doesn't live amongst them. And the same goes for all of the other heartbroken, outraged whites you've heard from in the past 24 hours.

Does anyone know if Trayvon's father owned the home in Zimmerman's neighborhood? Who all lived there?

Here's the relevant portion of the Federal Hate Crimes Law, 18 U.S.C. §249:

(a) In General
(1) ....Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person-


I don't possibly see how Zimmerman could be charged again under this, the only remotely applicable civil rights statute. The mens rea here, willfulness, is exactly the issue which the jury was deciding.

This is true no matter which meaning you impart to wilfulness. In the criminal law context, it can mean either bare intentionality or evil purpose. In fact, without intending to, attaching the jury charge of manslaughter may have actually insulated old Georgie from prosecution under the Hate Crimes act. That's because the jury, in addition to hearing the instructions regarding ill will and spite relating to the 2nd degree charge, also heard the manslaughter charge, which required them to consider whether "Zimmerman intentionally committed an act or acts that caused the death of TM."

They found him not guilty on both charges. Therefore, the Florida jury has already determined that he didn't act willfully.

You can't satisfy the elements of the federal statute if you don't have willfulness. The jury considered and rejected that Zimmerman acted willfully. Trying him under the Hate Crimes Act would very clearly be double jeopardy.

That doesn't take anything away, of course, from all those who have pointed out that the fact this is simply being considered is a sign of how far the rot has set.

Wonder what fraction of burglary convictions in Sanford, and specifically Zimmerman's gated community, are against blacks. Wikipedia says Sanford is 30.5% black, and Seminole County is 11.1% black. Wouldn't be shocked if > 90% of Sanford burglaries are due to blacks. Having that stat pointed out in a civil rights trial might not be what the Obama Administration has in mind.

Obama/Holder are playing with fire with this one. George Zimmerman has been acquitted, and a very large portion of America, including all Republicans and most swing voters, are absolutely ready to accept that he's innocent. This isn't one of those minor scuffles the public will ignore. This will be front page news, and it will make Obama and Holder look like the racist, race-agitating, anti-American radicals they are. Just what the Republicans want in time for the 2014 elections: an Obama-voting martyr that makes Obama and the Dems look bad.

What it most closely reminds me of is the Racial Justice Act in North Carolina, which freed several black murderers from the death penalty based on "disparate impact" caused by supposedly racist jurors. It may have been a major reason why Republicans retook the governorship for the first time in 20 years and saw their majority in the NC House increase from 68 of 120) to 77.

If you're a 'white Hispanic' and your father is white, make sure to take your mother's last name.

If Zimmerman's father had been pure Castilian Spanish and surnamed "Torres" or something, he still would be every bit as white, but he would have been full Hispanic instead of "white Hispanic," which just goes to show how absolutely vacuous is the term "Hispanic." It means absolutely nothing. You could be a blonde-haired white guy from Northern Spian, with European roots dating back to the Ice Age, or could be a 100% corn-chewing Amerindian from Oaxaca who doesn't even speak Spanish.

First you told us that the jury of 6 women would convict Zimmerman. They found him not guilty. Then you told us that Holder will charge Zimmerman in a Federal suit and that Zimmerman "has no chance there", which I guess means conviction. Neither of those two things has happened yet. No federal charges have been filed, though they might be in the future. I would guess that the probability of conviction on hate crime charges is low. Where's the evidence of "hate speech"?

Look, this isn't "double jeopardy"!
He was tried in front of (1) a girl judge, by (2) a girl prosecutor and judged by (3) a girl jury.

Bottom line, he was never in "jeopardy" to begin with.

You know what I mean. You remember in grade school dodge ball how the girls always got to stand closer to the other team than the boys did when they threw the balls at them?

Why? Because they throw ball like girls--weak and wimpy.

As Mark Steyn says, the process is the punishment.

At this point, he doesn't have to ever be found guilty of any criminal or civil charge. The feds have zeroed in on him as a target to support the Narrative, and they have in essence a bottomless well of resources.

Unless he is a multimillionaire, defending himself alone will lead to completely plowing through everything he and his family own, and bankruptcy.

And even if he could get financial support, he will be in and out of court rooms for years. Look at the pics of him from April and compare to current pics; the stress toll on him is obvious by how much he ballooned in that short time. Now multiply that over years, and see how much of a toll its going to have on him.

The president has basically signed on without the slightest reflection to causing immense suffering and ruining this man and his family's life because of whatever political benefits he feels he can milk from it.

I didn't vote for the SOB. I wonder if any lessons are sinking in Zimmerman's (and Paula Deen's) heads about their 2012 votes.

Maybe the lack of Hispanic support for Zimmerman shows the lack of unity among various Hispanics.

Though Zimmerman looks Mexicanish, he's actual of Peruvian descent, and most Hispanics in America are not from Peru. So, most Mexican-Americans didn't care. Also, Florida is not a Mexican heavy state.

If this had taken place in Texas and if Zimmerman were a Mexican-American, the dynamics might have been very different.

I guess not much Hispanic unity among the various ethnicities.

And charging Zimmerman again with child abuse wouldn't be triple jeopardy. Etc.

Why not just decree that the justice system went awry, and re-indict him on Murder 2? This time, the NAACP, NAABP, and SPLC can jointly select the jury.

Since Zimmerman's guilty, I don't see why that would be a problem.

He was cleared of manslaughter and murder two. Maybe they will go for murder one. Or stalking.

It really is hard to see what the crime was. The only line we're being given at present is "we are investigating to see if Zimmerman violated Martin's civil rights." Maybe if you shoot a person in a "protected class," whatever the circumstances, you are "guilty" of the "crime" of "civil rights violation." If so, this would simply amount to blacks' being inviolable royalty.

"Trying him under the Hate Crimes Act would very clearly be double jeopardy."

Federal Hate Crime laws were written specifically to make the Constitutional prohibition on double jeopardy a dead letter if the federal government wants to prosecute someone for political reasons (read: if you're the wrong kind of white person, or in Z's case, a pseudo-white for purposes of sustaining The Narrative). It's not constitutional according to the letter of the law; it's constitutional according to our "living constitution" as defined by Rabbinical hair-splitters who specialize in inverting and perverting the spirit of the law. So citing the law is beside the point; the law is whatever the lawyers and judges say it is. And they say it ain't double jeopardy. Or they'll try to anyway.

webster said...

Lib psychology.

Maybe libs wanted Zimmerman to be convicted because they want MORE BLACKS to be locked up.

White libs are afraid of black thugs and want them behind bars.
But to justify this, there has to the sense that whites are locked up when they hurt or kill blacks too.
If there's the perception that 'racist' whites are not locked up, then blacks will be up in arms, and it will be more difficult for white libs to support the policy of locking up dangerous blacks.

So, to justify the mass incarceration of bad blacks, there has to be perception that bad whites are locked up too and that the system is fair.

Thought experiment-apologies if it was conducted before: What if Zimmerman looked like one of those Hispanic Hispanic as per Steves famous gallery in December. And he voted Republican? This would of course compel the much relieved media to drop the dead weight suffix of white Hispanic.

Would he be as hated? Perhaps much of the rage against Zimmerman is that he is viewed as a traitor to the cause rather than a "white" guy tormenting a helpless black ala 1950s Alabama

If Zimmerman voted for Obama in 2012 (post "if I had a son..."), he deserves to be convicted of stupidity.

ErisGuy said...

If Zimmerman voted for Obma he is living in the world in which he chose to live, with the consequences to him personally of which he approved in advance. His silences at the outrages perpetrated upon him show his acquiescence before Social Justice, and, probably, his approval.

Should Obama & Holder charge George Zimmerman, as in all anti-White racist assaults they will not charge him to poison and embitter the rest of just one guy's - George Zimmerman's - life. Obama & Holder will charge one man to serve their larger ambition: pour encourager les autres. Haven't we yet learned that liberals & leftists are addicted to Sending A Message?

As a white woman, I think the all female jury helped Zimmerman. The men I know made macho, swinging ballz comments about how Zimmerman should've been able to beat up and/or subdue Martin without recourse to a gun. That's a red rag to a bull for a woman, because it acts like there's something inherently suspicious about being physically unable to defend oneself.

If they try him again - and they probably will, because they're awful, awful people - I would be vvvverrrrrryyyyyy interested to see the demographics of the new jury.

So what if it really is double jeopardy. If the Obama administration decides to charge him, who is going to stop them? What non-biased legal authority will look Holder in the eye and say, "You can't do that?"

Are you serious? No one is intimidating by Holder in person. Holder routinely wets his pants when and whines about race when he faces a congressional hearing

Handle said...

Sailer has defended the potential legitimacy of hate crime laws from time to time, and I think one of the best arguments against him was that the most analogous legal concept was in free speech. Some restrictions on speech beyond the usual exceptions (defamation, etc.) are indeed defensible, but it's just a kind of power you don't want in the hands in hands of your opponent. And DOJ is always the one wielding that power. Still favor 'hate crimes' now, Steve?

I always feel like I'm following a trend thats out there. I'm not a leader. Twenty years ago I bought a "Victorian" style new construction house thinking it was my own taste. Within the next 5 years, the only houses being built were "Victorian" style so obviously I was just influenced by a trend.

So, if I see it, everyone sees it. The Trayvon supporters are working hard to stay ignorant; they must have a motive.

If there was a seriousness in our elites about the state of black America - which is terrible, black areas are s**tholes - the strategy would be to shame black middle and upper class by rubbing their noses in the atrocious behavior of the black underclass. The last thing a serious person would do would be to pander to black upper and middle class and even to give them affirmative action and minority set asides, etc. which only give them a motivation to maintain a black underclass as they benefit so much.

webster said...

Blacks are naturally less inhibited and more aggressive, thus less reflective and self-critical, less empathetic of other people's views. They think they are the center of the world, and everything exists for their pleasure and gratification.

Therefore, they see the likes of OJ and Trayvon only as brothas. They feel blacks must stick together.

Yet, paradoxically, this culture of black unity betrays the very reason for black disunity and divisions in the black community.

Just as blacks as a group think they're always right(even when they are wrong), EACH AND EVERY Negro thinks he or she is always right(even when he or she is wrong). So, black community is filled with the likes of Trayvon, Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, 50 cents, Mike Tyson, and such ilk who are always cussing, fighting, and killing one another. After all, each Negro is an ego-maniacal jerk or punk who thinks he or she is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Just as blacks as a group can never admit wrong and try to empathize with other groups, each and every negro can never admit wrong and try to empathize with other negroes. It's no wonder so many black men, women, and children are so prone to lying, cheating, cussing, stealing, fighting, and even killing one another.

Blacks pretend to sympathize with Trayvon but their real message is 'we is always right cuz I is always right.'

So, blacks again failed to learn the lesson.

And cowardly libs are again encouraging the worst tendency of the black community.

My prediction is that the Feds will make a show of "investigating" Zimmerman to appease the immediate anger of Obama's base, but that once things have had a chance to cool down, they will announce that they don't have enough evidence and end the investigation. Obama has ridden this train about as far as he wanted to (all the way to a 2nd term) and he is getting off before the next stop.

They wouldn't mind persecuting George some more (the trial itself is a major punishment, even without a conviction) but they must realize that their odds of conviction aren't going to be any better the 2nd time around (there is even less evidence that George is a racis' than there was that he was not acting in self-defense) and a 2nd acquittal would be a further humiliation.

I guess they could charge him but they run the risk of getting the whole law tossed out of court. They would only be charging him on his supposed views not on the killing. That is to say they want to charge him for following Martin because he was Black.

Zimmerman is a private citizen he can hold any biases he likes. He is well within his rights to follow Martin. A federal judge or jury would simply laugh at this case. I suspect the real risk of jeopardizing hate crime laws will keep Holder in check but who knows with these guys.

Haha.

I'm sure someone (Steve, probably) has mentioned this already, but I can't recall: this case definitely illustrates a good reason for Hispanics to avoid self-identifying as "white."

A smart move for his whole family would be to leave the country before charges are filed.

Or he could just apply for welfare (gov't-induced unemployableness), fire his legal team, get a public defender, and copy-paste his defense in from his criminal trial. FFS, these people got nothing. Nothing. To quote Tommy Lee Jones from Natural Born Killers, "you got a-SHEIT-A!!"

Or he could split the difference: hire a cheap lawyer (?) and pocket half his legal defense fund, if that looks like a viable gig.

He definitely needs to take a proactive approach to his new life, from here on out: book deals, lecture circuit, broadcast personality, etc.

He'll have to ditch that Democrat party affiliation nonsense, of course. There are several niches open to him: Tacticool Badass would be my choice - gun-nuts are loyal customers - but plain ol' conservative Republican would do.

I fucking knew it.

Hey, I give you, and everyone else who kept saying it, your due. I was wrong, you guys were right. Dumbass that I am, I figured (a bare modicum of) dignity and sanity would prevail.

Does anyone know if Trayvon's father owned the home in Zimmerman's neighborhood? Who all lived there?

Troof has ruled that irrelevant. Oh, what the hell: no, he didn't own the home. We don't even know if he was paying rent; it was Martin, Sr.'s girlfriend's house.

It was either this or several lonely weeks on the Lincoln coach.

Obama/Holder are playing with fire with this one. George Zimmerman has been acquitted, and a very large portion of America, including all Republicans and most swing voters, are absolutely ready to accept that he's innocent. This isn't one of those minor scuffles the public will ignore. This will be front page news, and it will make Obama and Holder look like the racist, race-agitating, anti-American radicals they are. Just what the Republicans want in time for the 2014 elections: an Obama-voting martyr that makes Obama and the Dems look bad.

Yeah, I don't know WTF they're thinking. First, doing nothing lets this case fade away, which has got to be a good thing for them, at this point...yes? Second, it lets them look magnanimous and post-racial with zero effort.

Unless he is a multimillionaire, defending himself alone will lead to completely plowing through everything he and his family own, and bankruptcy.

Hence, my strategy above. Public defender, baby. Cut-and-paste legal defense. Hell, if I were in Zim's shoes I'd be plotting my "okay, now you STFU up and let me do the talking" defense with my hack, state-provided, Men's-Wearhouse-besuited lawyer right now.

And even if he could get financial support, he will be in and out of court rooms for years. Look at the pics of him from April and compare to current pics; the stress toll on him is obvious by how much he ballooned in that short time. Now multiply that over years, and see how much of a toll its going to have on him.

Stress is overrated. You get used to it. At this point in Zim's life, I think it's time for a lil' "ju wanna play rough! Okay! We can play rough! But jour playing with da bess, baby! Take dat, ju whores!"

I think zimmie needs to take the fight to the SOBs, not hide. Go on Fox, Rush, and the more radical outlets, blast them.
Go on a media blitz, and don't be polite or politically incorrect.
Do not apologize. This is a teachable moment for millions of white americans.

The arguments to use are all over the rightwing internet. Sell a book, make a million. And then he will make millions of converts. Any further jury will be bound to have a least a majority of whites or hispanics on it, be it criminal or civil.

I'd be surprised if the hate crime prosecution goes much further. My track record for these kind of predictions hasn't been very good but here goes.

The Martin-Zimmerman incident is sharply divisive along racial lines. All blacks it seems are convinced that Zimmerman did something wrong. Many advocate that some black street thug murder sweet pudgy George. So if you want to appeal politically to blacks you would prosecute Zimmerman for anything you could dream up.

But all blacks are already going to vote for Obama backed candidates in the upcoming elections. You might think that because blacks like everyone else have been losing their enthusiasm for Obama that he might pursue Zimmerman so as to 'prop up his base'. There could be some of that but blacks are already energized along racial lines. Obama has already benefited from this case simply because it has driven Benghazi, Fort Hood, and the IRS scandals off the air. He could have Eric Holder flay Zimmerman alive on the White House Lawn and he would not get anymore black votes - there aren't anymore to be gotten.

This case seems to be splitting off many white liberals from the blacks among the Obama supporters. The case for self defense is simple and obvious. You have to actually be black as to be able to overlook that. Many white liberals can't manage to hold their nose and condemn Zimmerman for the sake of the Democrat Party.

It is probably a mistake for Obama to ally the Zimmerman case with the gun control issue. The whole Second Amendment issue is now and has always been based on fear of violent Negroes. George Mason and the Virginia planters were strongly in favor of an armed militia because they feared a slave insurrection. This fear still resonated with the Tea Party and a host of other groups during the recent gun control debate. The home defense rational means fear of black home invaders.

George Zimmerman is just the sort of person many whites would like patrolling their neighborhood. And they would want him armed. They will not say this in public but when they say they support the Second Amendment the subtext is fear of 'teens' or 'youths' by which they mean large black males with drug and gang connections like Trayvon Martin.

If Obama does, despite my predictions, continue to pursue George Zimmerman there will be another run on gun stores. White Americans will stock up on every possible gun once again.

Buying a gun is like buying gold - its a demonstration of little faith in government. If you think the government is undisciplined you buy gold. If you think it isn't concerned with your safety you buy a gun.

If Obama were to firmly support the jury's decision and stamp down on street protests, if he were to have Eric Holder prosecute all those who are now making inflammatory statements of revenge, then white America would not feel the need to be armed so much.

It is often said that Obama hasn't had many accomplishments. But you have to admit - he certainly got America armed. He may not have been very successful with any of his formal jobs initiatives but he has brought full employment to gun shops and gun smiths.

There isn't going to be a civil rights trial. Too much dirty linen that would be disclosed: evidence destroyed or not produced by the prosecution, etc.

My guess is that Holder/Obama will cut a deal with Zimmerman: if the Z-man agrees not to sue Sanford for withholding evidence, the Feds will agree not to sue him for civil rights violations. The Talented Tenth Negro Elite will get bored waiting for the Feds to finish their what-will-be-long-drawn-out civil rights "investigation" and will move on to some other "crisis".

Let's face it. With the collapse of law and order in Detroit, Flint and other Negro homelands, "vigilantism" (aka justifiable homicide) is the only way the decent Negro masses are able to stay in their homes. The Negro Elite knows this as well as anyone else. The Negro Elite milked Trayvon for about as much political capital as they can get. Its time to move on now.

No Federal civil rights trial either criminal or civil.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone outside the Steve-o-Sphere noticed that, in typical fashion, the grounds for outrage keep subtly shifting?


Month 1- "A crazed white vigilante murdered an innocent, angelic boy!". Then it turned out that Martin wasn't so innocent or angelic, and was for all practical purposes a man, not a boy. Zimmerman was also revealed to be not so crazed and not so white. So that angle was dropped.

Later- "It's those awful 'Stand your Ground' laws, that's what's wrong!". But the defense didn't even need to mention that law at trial, because was totally irrelevant to the case. That line was abandoned pretty swiftly by the smart media players, though some stragglers still haven't wrapped their heads around it yet.

During the trial (after it became clear that there was no way to prove murder)- "Zimmerman recklessly provoked a confrontation, ignoring police instructions!". But police testified that he cooperated fully and followed all their instructions, and the jury subsequently agreed.

After the acquittal- "Anyone who is going to carry a deadly weapon should be more careful, and more knowledgeable!" i.e., GZ was a little bit of a bumbling incompetent, which is more-or-less true.


This kind of "outrage distillation" is common when the press push a bull***t narrative and then discover that they were mostly wrong. The can't continue lying, but they can focus the same amount of anger and opprobrium onto smaller and smaller sins.

"Guys, it has been so much fun, I say we do it again!"

There's no "again" because Zimmerman didn't do anything wrong.

However the trial is likely to have increased full-on 100% mistrust of media reporting on any case involving race in any way which will apply even in cases where someone did do something wrong.

Yes but bear in mind that most people don't pay full attention to the news and pay most at the beginning of a story so that first version is the one that has stuck most in the minds of people like that who only read mainstream or overtly liberal media.

I have relatives who only vaguely followed the story and they all thought Martin was like the 12 year old kid in the photo the media used everywhere - even in Europe btw. They all use the 12 year old photo.

First impressions count.

Obama has ridden this train about as far as he wanted to (all the way to a 2nd term) and he is getting off before the next stop.

That's my guess too. The only reason for pursuing it further would be to punish Zimmerman for killing a black guy, but as others have pointed out, these people don't care about blacks getting killed every night in Chicago. This was about political advantage, and there's just no more political hay to be made here anymore. Too many people have seen pictures of Zimmerman and realized he's not the white supremacist gun-nut that was implied, and those numbers (and the number of people seeing recent pictures of Martin) would only grow in a second trial.

So my guess is that they'll make some loud noises about investigating it thoroughly, suggest that that will take a while, and assume that everyone will have forgotten about it a month from now.

It might be that this is just a tactic by the administration to let the situation cool down slowly. Kind of like the theory that whites are protesting so that blacks won't riot.

The Sanford Police did not withhold evidence and neither did the local state's attorney's office. This misfeasance was the work of the special prosecutor's office.

Federal civil rights charges are humbug. Martin was not killed undertaking any sort of civil activity and Zimmerman is not a public official. It has been suggested that they would collar him with federal 'hate crimes' law, but they would have to come up with evidence that the diffident Mr. Zimmerman was peculiarly hostile to anyone. The only thing the feds could do with an honest federal district judge looking over their shoulder is to attempt to extort some sort of plea through driving him further into insolvency and/or to get his lawyers to bail for economic reasons. (That prosecutors can do this to people is another scandal).

No, there would be a country-wide campaign to erect metropolitan police departments, staff them well, and hire disciples of William Bratton to run them. With what New York City has accomplished since 1993, it is a reasonable goal to work toward a state of affairs where Detroit has a homicide rate of 14 per 100,000, not 41 per 100,000. That this is not done is a function of institutional defects (structural and cultural), vested interests, and penny-wise foolishness on the part of suburban voters.

Just Another Guy With a 1911 said...

My guess is George will stand his ground when/if the feds came after him. I think this for a few reasons.

First, while some may view George as a bumbling do gooder, I view him a little different. At the end of the day, HIS neighborhood was under siege by Obama's children - and, as far as I can tell, he was the only one in the development who didn't live his life in fear of assholes and f*ing punks. Say what you like, but I bet he is pretty stubborn.

Second - the media grabbed onto the profoundly suspect racial category "White Hispanic" as the original narrative began to unravel -which obscures the fact that, if anything, he is Jewish Hispanic (although a practicing Catholic). One of the most endearing or annoying cultural traits (depending on your perspective) of the Jews I have known (and I grew up in a heavily Jewish suburb in the North East) is that they are generally pretty bright, verbally aggressive, and stubborn as all get out - much like his brother Rob in fact who would routinely verbally ground and pound Piers Morgan on CCN.

(If you have never seen him - Rob is very polished, deals well with media, and appears to have a very high level of verbal ability.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ePcLS5f7jw

Finally, George has an awesome legal team that, given enough financial resources, could go toe to toe with the Feds in court and in the press. Keep in mind the Feds really just over charge and outspend and grind down defendants - it's not like there is anyone in the DOJ better than O'mara. If the trial showed anything is that State Prosecutors, even the good ones, are not particularly great.

Which comes to the issue of Money: Zimmerman has already raised hundreds of thousands for his defense without much effort. As someone said - write a book, go on Rush, Hannity, etc., as well as the news and talk shows. If he did this in conjunction with actively soliciting donations for his defense, I bet he could raise several million without much effort.

Every second that George or his proxies are on the offensive, on the television, and in peoples faces telling his story - it will become that much harder for the average voter to ignore the administration's tacit support of what amounts to racially driven low level genocide in the form of persistent violent crime against whites (and everyone else, it seems) by underclass blacks like Trayvon.

@svigor:

"I ask the gallery: would George Bush the Second have handled the Zimmerman verdict differently? If so, how?"

Easy question: under GBII Zimmerman would already be in chains, awaiting his next "trial."
The Bush's are, after all, about as white-protestant-patrician as white-protestant-patricians get. So they have to try even harder than Obama to prove themselves worthy of the mantle of victimhood (&/or heroic defenders of victimhood) which is the supreme value of the cult of God on the Cross (& its various ideological heirs) to which they imagine that they adhere.

"To prove such violations requires a different standard of evidence and law than what was used in the state case against Zimmerman. So a federal prosecution would not be double jeopardy, they said."

It's not double jeopardy, you guys! That was a court court. This is a kangaroo court. It's totally different!

I have relatives who only vaguely followed the story and they all thought Martin was like the 12 year old kid in the photo the media used everywhere - even in Europe btw. They all use the 12 year old photo.

Is it just me, or do other people notice that the 12 year old Trayvon has a subtly aggressive, smirking expression. My impression of him in the red (Hollister?) shirt is that he's not a nice kid, even if he is 12 in the photo, he sure ain't Beaver Cleaver.

Must not be much rattling around in yours. Hate is an emotion. It is not a crime.


"It is probably a mistake for Obama to ally the Zimmerman case with the gun control issue. The whole Second Amendment issue is now and has always been based on fear of violent Negroes. George Mason and the Virginia planters were strongly in favor of an armed militia because they feared a slave insurrection. This fear still resonated with the Tea Party and a host of other groups during the recent gun control debate. The home defense rational means fear of black home invaders."

That's well-reasoned,but wrong. Gun control was actually devised by liberal whites because of a fear of armed former slaves.

A slavemaster who was good at his job could leave a loaded double-barrel shotgun laying around and none of his negroes would touch it because, (a) blacks are naturally dependent and WANT a benevolent white provider,look what they did when they got the vote, and (b)The slavemaster put the fear of god into his slaves about any form of disobedience. As long as he was reasonably providing for the negroes' wants as a group,he could get quite nasty with some negro in particular.

Funny that GWB would come up - as I read this thread in one of U.C. Berkeley's satellite libraries, the following poem is posted on the wall:

See no evil, see nothing all;
hear no evil, just heavenly call;
speak no evil, but listen in, so to discover someone else's sin;
Thus the gospel from simian George.
Think evolution since Valley Forge:
from telling the truth to admitting no error.
From the fight for freedom to the war on terror.
Surely evolution must be defective,
the descent of man just liberal invective, spread by riders of the Demo donkey.
Warning: with God's word thou shalt not monkey.

Come again? Tracy Martin is a long-haul truck driver. I think that is likely pretty near the workforce median in terms of compensation and skill level. Sybrina Fulton is an official of the housing authority in Miami. Stephen Martin, Sr. is a retired military officer. Brandi Green lives in a neighborhood chock-a-bloc with the common-and-garden middle class (a retired teacher, an IT tech, a real estate sales agent, and an insurance underwriter are among her neighbors). Not sure about Alicia Stanley, but from her grooming and speech patterns, I would guess wage-earning office employee. Jahvaris Fulton is a college student. Trayvon Martin was not in any way shape or form 'underclass'. He was at the nexus of the common middle class and the prosperous working class.

It's a good call grammatically. The word should have been "thug-wannabee" or something like that. But what class analysis misses (or underplays) is mobility among classes - and contrary to feel-good myths, most class mobility is downward. Trayvon wasn't sinking, he was sunk (but our host disagrees with that assessment).

Let's use "low class"? Anyone from any background can surely be low class. It could be all Just Another Guy With a 1911 meant.

This case seems to be splitting off many white liberals from the blacks among the Obama supporters. The case for self defense is simple and obvious. You have to actually be black as to be able to overlook that. Many white liberals can't manage to hold their nose and condemn Zimmerman for the sake of the Democrat Party.

I'm thinking blue collar union (aka Reagan) Democrats myself. White limo liberals are too insulated from black crime to empathize with Zimmerman. Sanford's burglary rate is 8x New York City's. It is literally out of control. Unlike his limo liberal and conservative critics, Zimmerman's not a rich guy. He can't afford to move away.

Obama I just can't believe, and lots of whites voted for him but Romeny should not have made the 47 percent statement.

Romney is a political ninny who thought he could do politics in his spare time. Reagan wasn't anywhere near as smart, but he worked at it day and night. That's how he came up with a good response (or non-response) to just about every question fielded at him. Romney said so many stupid things, it's clear he simply wasn't trying.

Art Deco -

Note to self: turn in Communist Party USA membership card. Kidding aside, good catch and those are interesting facts re: Martin's socioeconomic background I was not aware of. I followed the case pretty closely. Were any of these facts adduced at trial or widely available and I just missed it?

That being said, my class assumptions were based on Martin's behavior and I'm not convinced that the details you supplied really change the analysis in any fundamental way. It is Martin's behavior, what he became, that is most important. Clearly, whatever station the St. Skittles Express started at in life it sure as hell wasn't where it ended. It just makes Trayvon's descent into thug or, to use David's term, low class life and its attendant and corrosive characteristics/societal effects all that more depressing in that, perhaps, it could have been prevented somewhere along the line.

Also, the facts about Martin's background leads to a question that goes deeper into the heart of everything. Namely, why did Trayvon feel (and demonstrate) so much affinity for prevailing black underclass mores, values and behaviors, to the point where he felt entitled/empowered to kill a "cracka" who he thought disrespected him, than the generic middle class ones that, based on the socioeconomic background you supplied, he ostensibly would have been inculcated with.

Art Deco said...

most class mobility is downward. Trayvon wasn't sinking, he was sunk (but our host disagrees with that assessment).

Not unless the ratio of the below to the above is continually expanding. It is not. The ratio of salaried employees and proprietors to wage earners is actually somewhat higher than it was in 1925. The more salient difference is that there were in that stratum proportionately fewer salaried employees ninety years ago and many more farm proprietors. Compared to the rest of the population, farm proprietors are a good deal more affluent than was the case in 1925, but there are few of them left (about 1.2% of the workforce is in agriculture and allied trades). Some sectors of the agrarian labor force (e.g. tenant farmers and share-croppers) have disappeared entirely.

The wage earning sector is proportionately slightly smaller. The principal change in its composition has been the decline of workers in goods producing enterprises in favor of service employment.

Trayvon Martin was only 17. He was not sunk. Some punks that age grow out of it in short order, some after a certain number of years and opportunities wasted, and some remain a problem way into middle age. Tracy Martin and his brother grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois - i.e. in the most viperous slum in America. You never can quite tell about people at a young age.

No, I do not live in the neighborhood, but a number of the people who testified are neighbors of Brandi Green and George Zimmerman.

"Truth" is still very much a reverse nickname, I see.

"Well Sweetie, there's this one guy who got into a confrontation with, and shot a teenager on his way home, has been arrested for spousal abuse, and convicted for resisting arrest and obstruction of justice and was too dumb to be a local policeman...even though it was his life's dream."

Wow! Zimmerman was convicted for resisting arrest and obstruction of justice? We learned from you just a few days ago that Bill Lee was convicted of resisting arrest and obstruction of justice, too. What a coincidence!

Oh, wait, that was just a gross error on your part, one which you, as far as I can gather, have never bothered to acknowledge or correct, even after I called you on it, even though you replied to the comment in which I did so.

And now, we have another of your gross errors. Zimmerman was not convicted of resisting arrest or obstruction of justice, either. And btw, the former charge was "resisting arrest without violence."

I hope you don't serve on many juries.

What's next from you? Skip Gates was convicted of burglary?

Zim's statement on the resisting arrest and obstruction incident, from his police academy application:

“I was arrested in July of 2005 for assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. Both charges were immediately dropped to resisting arrest without violence, and then dropped all together.

“I was in an altercation with an undercover officer that was taking part in an ATF sting for underage drinking in UCF. He never told me he was an officer and assaulted me first. Shortly after that, in September 2005, the same unit was conducting a sting at UCF and an officer was killed by an OPD officer because he discharged his weapon and did not identify himself.

“My father is a retired Magistrate Judge for the Supreme Court of Virginia and my mother was a deputy clerk of court for over 20 years. I hold law enforcement officers in the highest regaurd (sic) as I hope to one day become one. I would never have touched a police officer. Prior to and since that I have not been arrested.


Fox News (according to Half Sigma's quote):

In July 2005, Zimmerman, then 21, was at a bar near the University of Central Florida when a friend was arrested by state alcohol agents on suspicion of serving underage drinkers, according to an arrest report in the Sentinel. Zimmerman became profane and pushed away an agent who tried to escort him, the report said. Authorities said he was arrested after a short struggle. Charged with resisting arrest without violence, he avoided conviction by entering a pretrial-diversion program, something common for first-time offenders.

Here's what the obviously-hostile allvoices.com has to say about the domestic violence issue:

In the same year (2005), Zimmerman's ex-fiance, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order, alleging domestic violence. In retaliation, Zimmerman filed for a retraining order against Zuazo and both these claims were resolved with both restraining orders granted.

So, it's an "allegation," not even an arrest or conviction.

Anything else you'd like to royally **** up before we move on?

Svigor said...

P.S., here's a great bit of urinalism from WaPo:

When George Zimmerman followed Trayvon Martin the night of Feb. 26, 2012, he ignored an admonition not to do so from the police dispatcher. The request for his arrest, written by the lead detective, noted that Zimmerman's killing of Trayvon could have been avoided if he'd remained in his vehicle or identified himself "as a concerned citizen." Just what in Zimmerman's past might have led him to take these actions and kill an unarmed teenager with a gunshot to the chest is relevant in this case.

Everything after the second comma in the first sentence is wrong on the facts. In the second sentence, the lead detective shows gross stupidity or willful ignorance. For one thing, the cops shoot people all the time, and most of those shootings "could have been avoided" if the cops just stayed in their vehicles and stopped sticking their noses into other peoples' business. For another, identifying himself as a "concerned citizen" might just as easily have been what triggered Martin to assault Zimmerman; "no snitchin'" For another, it's as likely as not that Martin was already set on his goal of assaulting and beating Zimmerman, and no action on Zimmerman's point this side of brandishing his firearm would have prevented Martin's determined course of criminal behavior. And brandishing a firearm, is IIRC, a crime in Florida. Maybe that's why the lead detective didn't mention the one obvious action that Zimmerman could have taken that would have been likely to stop Trayvon's criminal trajectory?

P.P.S., T should be happy to G**gle up "Witness No. 9" who proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Zimmerman is a sexual predator and a racist.

Trayvon Martin was only 17. He was not sunk. Some punks that age grow out of it in short order, some after a certain number of years and opportunities wasted, and some remain a problem way into middle age.

True, but judging by his behavior on the night of his death, his trajectory was falling. In fact, I don't think it's unfair to say it drove him right into the ground that night.

You are being ironic, I hope? Witness #9 is his cousin, who had no relevant information for authorities; she just wanted to trash him. Her allegations against her cousin seem embellished ("she sounds phony" said Jeralyn Merritt) and I would not be the least bit surprised if it never occurred to Christina Meza Johnson that the five incidents in question (over 11 years) had a connecting thread until some 3d rate L.C.S.W. suggested it.

I don't care either, but Zim's brother Robert said George mentored two black youths. The black teacher who said "Hi George" and waved obviously had no prob with George. In fact, George is also like BO's son, as his Grandmom was black.
I noticed that some MSM-lie organ, Huff Post probably, headlined "Robert Zimmerman ... smug .." So absurd I can't recall it all. Aside from the fact Robert was articulate and confident and pointed out Pierce Morgan's irresponsibility (the man was still insisting on the train of events as MSM wanted it and which the trial showed to be false), I just can't see "smug" anywhere on him. It was his calling out of the MSM (Piece Morgan is just one mouthpiece) on its irresponsibility that made HuffPost so vindicative. Calling someone like Zimmerman a "racist", even by Huff Post definitions, makes MSM look as lying and manipulative as it really is, and doesn't anger me. It's too absurd. OTOH, calling the media "irresponsible" cuts too close to the truth. Appearing to be the all-knowing-parent-god-figure is the MSM's currency. Nobody with brains believes CNN, ABC, or NBC, NYT, WaPo, etc. It's actually v. easy to get many people to admit that. Be careful about taking celebrity and politicians' regurgitations seriously. They are like mechanical puppets when it comes to this. What they really think may be quite different, but since they have no character to say so even tactfully, they prove themselves worthless.

I don't know whether your a "libera" or "conversative" (a meaningless dichotomy to me), but you are definitely not stellar in reading comprehension. Do you have ADHD?
He did not instigate the attack. The attacker did. Zimmerman just walked behind him briefly, as a good neighborhood watchman should do. He then turned to leave and the attacker came up behind him. The rest is history.
Personally I am of the cowardly safari breed. I look up (certain) blacks, especially when I'm alone and it's dark, as dangerous and according the MSM & many "liberals" (for lack of a better word) not subject to rule of law.
