NBC’s Miami affiliate reported last week that “The FBI found no racial bias behind George Zimmerman’s shooting of Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin, according to dozens of documents related to the case released Thursday.”
That conclusion and those documents should put an end to an already discredited, central theory in the prosecution of George Zimmerman for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, namely that the 28 year old, mixed-race Zimmerman was motivated to murder Martin on February 26th, 2012 out of racial hatred.
It must have been difficult for Sanford PD lead investigator Chris Serino to make that blockbuster announcement since he had precipitously implied four months ago that Zimmerman was a liar in claiming self-defense in the shooting and had wanted the neighborhood watchman thrown in jail posthaste.
Now, based on his investigation and statements of character witnesses, Serino thinks Zimmerman wasn’t a racist at all but rather an “overzealous” watchman with a “little hero complex.” Again, since we don’t customarily hang people because they are overzealous little heroes, the persistent, highly-political allegations that what happened in February was a hate crime should be put to rest.
Not on your life! There’s too much else at stake, like a national election, placating blacks, and making money!
President Barack Hussein Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, literally or figuratively intent on hanging Zimmerman as a sop to the black community and racial agitators, will continue its investigation as if Martin’s killing were a hate crime.
When you’re waging a racial vendetta stoked by the mainstream media, why let the truth get in your way!
From the outset and regardless of the facts, George Zimmerman was portrayed by the mainstreamers as a bloodthirsty murderer and when evidence contradictory to that portrayal surfaced it was either ignored or, as in the case of recorded 911 calls, doctored to make him appear a mad racist intent on stalking and killing Trayvon Martin because he was black.
To supplement its Zimmerman distortions, the MSM invariably depicted Martin as an innocent, unarmed, defenseless African-American youth, a fine young man merely strolling at night through the middle class streets of Twin Lakes with a bag of Skittles when he was savagely set upon and brutally attacked.
If you’re gullible enough to buy those fabrications, you probably also believe the DoJ is seeking justice instead of misplaced, political vengeance.
If anything, as amply proven in this space, Trayvon was a pot-headed, gang-banging thief with a history of unsavory associations, possession of stolen property and burglary tools, and school suspensions.
However, thanks to political correctness run amok, in death, Trayvon was miraculously transformed into a saintly paragon of virtue who inspired massive demonstrations nationwide protesting his innocence and America’s muderous, white bigotry.
There are a multiplicity of reasons beyond Election 2012 why the Obama-Holder Justice Department won’t just let the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman farcical miscarriage of justice fade into oblivion.
There is also the profit motive.
They include the profits to be gained when Trayvon Martin’s family gets around to filing wrongful death lawsuits against everyone in sight and the monies gained by radical agitators such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and their ilk as well as the profits accruing to the New Black Panther Party which rakes in donations whenever they stir up racial divisiveness with lies or by illegally placing a $10,000 bounty on an innocent man’s head.
One of the few bright lights in those grisly profits is the entreprenurial spirit shown by such empathetic websites as TrayvonMartinApparel.com. They are cashing in on a regettable death by peddling a double-lined, hoodie with matching drawstring for a mere $29.98, sold only in black.
I’d consider buying a black hoodie if it featured one of Trayvon’s more realistic photos such as the one in which he is extending both middle fingers in a salute to the world or his snarling picture, neither of which the MSM dare show.
The city fathers of Sanford seem to be ahead of the FBI-DoJ curve. Last week, to their credit, they dismantled the Trayvon Martin Memorial outside Twin Lakes.
