Zimmerman racist narrative implodes

Zimmerman racist narrative implodes

It probably will not stop those who want to portray the case as racial from continuing to make claims of racial motivation in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, but the FBI has confirmed that there is no substantial evidence that George Zimmerman was racist.

Via Orlando Sentinel, FBI interviews: No evidence Zimmerman a racist

Federal civil-rights investigators interviewed dozens of George Zimmerman’s friends, neighbors and co-workers, and no one said he was a racist, records released Thursday show.

FBI agents spread out across the state, talking to three dozen people, including gun-shop employees, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancée and the Sanford police detective who led the investigation into the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.

And as the Sentinel further reports, additional evidence released mostly supports Zimmeran:

The new batch of evidence includes nearly 300 pages plus police-dispatch audio and crime-scene photos. Defense attorneyMark O’Marareceived it last month.

There was little new that appeared to help the state’s case. Two witnesses said they heard an argument, then the voices moved away then they heard cries for help and a gunshot.

That does not match Zimmerman’s version of events. He told police there was a very brief exchange of words, then Trayvon punched him in the nose with such force that he fell to the ground. He said the teenager climbed on top of him and began punching him and pounding his head into a sidewalk.

Most of the new evidence appeared to favor Zimmerman.

A new witness whose name was blacked out told a prosecution investigator March 27 that she saw the fight and that the person on top was the one who wound up dead.

That makes two witnesses — one from an earlier evidence release — who back up Zimmerman’s version that Trayvon had overpowered him.

The Martin family’s attorney still is pushing the racism theme:

Well…. that means the FBI and the law is racist.

Seriously, George Zimmerman had a black grandfather. He is more black that Liz Warren is Cherokee. Does anyone else see an irony here?

As I’ve predicted before, there will be no Federal issue Zimmerman has to face.

The Sanford PD may be different, but even that would be a huge stretch.

The racists on both ends of the fringe spectrum in America will always hold onto their respective memes. But this is what I called it months ago…a garden variety killing in a same American city.

    Can you really say that the Holder/Obama DOJ wouldn’t file civil rights charges against Zimmerman ?

    “racists on both ends of the fringe spectrum in America will always hold onto their respective memes”

    Which repective meme will both ends of the fringe spectrum hold onto?

    The ‘racist White-Hispanic’ meme or the ‘racist Hispanic-White’ meme?

        Rags, with all due respect, it’s not the job of the readers here to understand what you’re referring to. If you make a point, try to be clear about so everyone can follow you. Prof Jacobson has been getting more and more readers of this blog and of these comments. You’re making an assumption that people remember what you’ve written.

          Ragspierre in reply to PhillyGuy. | July 13, 2012 at 4:02 pm

          What I write is irrelevant.

          Ragspierre | June 30, 2012 at 8:24 pm

          “The fact remains that this man should not be on trial and people like you who think he should because he dared defend himself against a black person bent on killing him are what is wrong with this country.”

          Please…!!! Look are your own writing, you poor old hate-twisted bigot. Do you think nobody reads what you write?

          One of my skills is listening to people, and remembering what they say. For instance…

          “Blacks are not and can never be equal partners in this society except on paper.”

          Insert “Jews” in that sentence, and imagine what Prof. Bill would think of you. Next, try any other ethnic group.

          You are just an old, hate-twisted bigot, and it taints all your thinking.

          JackRussellTerrierist | July 1, 2012 at 5:24 am

          I can’t insert any other ethnic group because it is not true of any other ethnic group.

          I always tell the truth.

          You are a hate-twisted old bigot. La.

Classic. When you don’t have a hand, keep playing the race card. Al and Jesse should be very proud.

I listened to this attorney for the Martin family earlier. Did this guy actually graduate from law school and pass a bar exam? Maybe I am filtering with my own prejudices but he sounds like a high school drop out. I have had more articulate servers at fast food restaurants.

Is this what affirmative action at law school looks like in real life?

    Ragspierre in reply to Anchovy. | July 13, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    Very likely. Look up the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Texas Southern University.

    But remember that most law school graduates are never trial advocates, and never see the inside of a court. Speaking is really not a requisite of passing the bar exam, or even being a good lawyer.

      TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | July 13, 2012 at 4:04 pm

      TSU has a good law school. I know people of all races who’ve gone there. Really.

        Ragspierre in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | July 13, 2012 at 4:12 pm

        Sure, there are people of all races who go there.

        Did you look up their stats? They are a crappy law school.

        On the other hand, I’ve known good trial lawyers who came out of that sewer of academia.

          TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | July 13, 2012 at 7:07 pm

          Respectfully, there are stats and there are results.

          And then there are TU-law grads! 👿

          Lighten up… jis’ a tad. After all, this IS the Internet!

The lead Sanford Police investigator who sought manslaughter charges against George Zimmerman told the FBI that a sergeant and two other officers tried to pressure him into making an arrest in the controversial case — even though he didn’t think there was enough evidence.

Telling the FBI that he was concerned that people inside the police department were leaking information, Serino cited Sgt. Arthur Barnes, officers Rebecca Villalona and Trekelle Perkins “as all pressuring him to file charges against Zimmerman after the incident,” an FBI report said. “Serino did not believe he had enough evidence at the time to file charges.”

The summary of Serino’s statement does not mention the race of the officers who allegedly pressured him, but sources told The Miami Herald that Barnes and Perkins are black, and Villalona is married to an African-American man. All three, the source said, had been called in by their supervisor and questioned about leaking information in the case.

Serino, a 15-year veteran of the department who was a major-crimes investigator, was demoted last month to overnight patrol.

Racist narratives never implode.

White guy stalks and shoots unarmed black kid…is etched in stone.

Meanwhile, the AP (via NPR) is still pushing the narrative that Zimmerman followed Martin after the dispatcher told him he didn’t need to:

In a Feb. 2 call, less than a month before the fatal shooting, Zimmerman described a suspicious man at a neighbor’s house. When asked, he said the man was black, wearing a black leather jacket, black hat with ear flaps and black pajama pants.

“He keeps going to this guy’s house. I know him. I know the resident. He’s Caucasian,” Zimmerman said. “He is going up to the house and then going along the side of it and then coming straight and then going back to it. I don’t know what he’s doing. I don’t want to approach him, personally.”

On Feb. 26, Zimmerman’s response was different. He spotted Martin walking through the gated community in Sanford. Martin was walking back to a house he was staying at in the community after a trip to a convenience store to buy Skittles and a can of iced tea. Zimmerman started to follow him. Despite a police dispatcher telling him “you don’t have to do that,” Zimmerman gets out of his truck to pursue Martin.

“These a———s, they always get away,” Zimmerman said on the call.

As I’ve said a hundred times before, Zimmerman was and IS a political arrest sanctioned by Gov Rick Scott of Florida so he could avoid potential race issues.

A coward who chose to let loose a nutcase like Corey on an innocent man instead of doing the right thing and standing up.

Of course it wasn’t racial. This was a case of a guy trying to do the right thing, the thing the police asked him to do, and a thug kid who wanted to beat him down for “showing disrespect” because he thought he was entitled to it.

As a matter of fact, as I blogged recently, this whole case is an example of “entitlement mentality” from Scott to Corey to the Martin family to the race baiters to the detective who chose to try and be cute and get even with Zimmerman instead of doing his job.

http://truthandcommonsense.com/2012/06/30/george-zimmerman-the-entitlement-mentality-victim/

“…the FBI has confirmed that there is no substantial evidence that George Zimmerman was racist.”

Very chilling sentence. Where can I go to obtain my certification of non-racist by our Gov’t? Is it a blood test, something else?

    heh-

    “Thinking” you’re not a racist is moot.

    The Feds will determine what you’re thinking. Pray it be politically correct in every way, shape, and form.

      Ragspierre in reply to Browndog. | July 13, 2012 at 4:07 pm

      “…no substantial evidence…”

      Evidence is not found in your thoughts.

      You actions…including your words…DO reveal what you think.

      If you are not a racist, that is not hard to prove. Not. At. All.

      Now, you MIGHT be called a racist, as are we all. But you have to have the guts to simply say, “bullshit!”.

        OcTEApi in reply to Ragspierre. | July 13, 2012 at 5:48 pm

        I call BULLSHIT!

        A) Insinuation and constant projection of JackRussellTerrierist as a racist (Ragspierre’s biggest detractor by calling out your BS) by twisting and manipulating their words out of context a comment made about the race pimps in Congress who profit from playing the race card.
        https://legalinsurrection.com/2012/06/this-time-tomorrow/comment-page-1/#comment-350161
        Follow the money. RACE=$.

        B) Despite all the emerging evidence that GZ acted in self-defense, the police interview, the GZ injury report, Martin’s autopsy report documenting injuries to his knuckles… you present this word salad:
        “…a garden variety killing in a same American city.”
        kill·ing/ˈkiliNG/
        Noun: An act of causing death, esp. deliberately.

        whereas a justifiable homicide implies a killing without evil or criminal intent, for which there can be no blame, such as self-defense to protect oneself.

        c) lastly you parlay off Browndogs heh- “snarc” and jump on your moonbat pogo stick to “educate people” about Evidence found in “You actions…including your words…DO reveal what you think.” a/k/a you might be racist and of course Ragspierre is here to bring it… the non-Evidence.

        “readers here, [aught] to understand what you’re referring to.”

        I would warn readers NOT to venture down the road of trying to untwist your asinine bloaviations … as the end result of just reading your postings inevitably leads to a precipitous drop in ones IQ.

          You are a liar.

          See, putting things plainly is one of my many attributes.

          “Blacks are not and can never be equal partners in this society except on paper.”
          ===JackedRacist.

          Two questions:

          1. is that not in context?

          2. is that the statement of a racial bigot?

          “…a garden variety killing in a [small] American city.”

          1. if it were not for all the BS surrounding this case, would it be anything more than I said?

          2. are there not killings like this every week involving two people who you never care one fig about?

          My comment was more about Buck’s paranoia.

          Your crazy animus is well documented as well. Hell, you were all over me for posting too early on threads.

          Your personal butt hurt, ah reckon.

          OcTEApi in reply to OcTEApi. | July 13, 2012 at 7:14 pm

          You didn’t post the whole thread for people to decide whether the comment was racist.. therefore it was out of context.

          I am not here to debate or defend the comment whether the comment was racist or not… that’s a moonbat fray the topic rathole, I’m not going to take the bait.

          I’m simply boiling down the fact that as the Zimmerman is racist meme IMPLODES, you EXPLODE the meme that your biggest detractor JackRussellTerrierist is a racist.
          This is simply an effort to shut down debate and silence your detractor…. with the race card.

          I’m also boiling down the fact that as evidence emerges that is considered pretty helpful to Zimmerman, as it is consistent with other known evidence.
          And that it would likely IMO be submitted by the prosecution… and as Professor Jacobson pointed out in The Preppy Killer video reenactment that Zimmerman “can use the reenactment to tell his story to the jury without every having to take the stand either because the prosecution needs to use it or by moving the tape into evidence through one of the police witnesses.”

          That YOU tried to EXPLODE the notion that Zimmerman’s credibility was shot (apparently in your mind, because of unrelated bond hearing testimony) that would have no bearing on trial evidence if Zimmerman didn’t take the stand.
          AGAIN another moonbat fray the topic rathole.

          You’re flailing mercilessly.

          Ragspierre in reply to OcTEApi. | July 13, 2012 at 7:19 pm

          Since I’ve already proven that you took the JackRussellTerrierist comment out of context by providing above link … it doesn’t make sense, you aim to further explore your claim by moving on to more probing questions from you wrt to your #2.

          You made a statement and tried to forward it by impugning the character of the one guy who’s consistently destroying your arguments.
          You’re on double secret moonbat probation.

          So, the real questions should be probing your original statement further.
          “As I’ve predicted before”
          “But this is what I called it months ago…”
          The Question(s) IS…
          Can you show linked proof to support these claims, or are these statements also made up out of whole cloth?

          Darlin’, you have always confused “proving” an assertion with pulling it out of your butt. Always. Really NOT the same. Look it up.

          The context is complete as I quoted it, and posting the thread doesn’t change it one iota.

          Does it?

          I even gave JackedRacist the chance to amend or mollify it, and the very next post has her confirming it and doubling down.

          Doesn’t it?

As you can see from the citations I give you, I’ve never thought there was any racial component in this case IN REALITY.

          I have no need to apologize for anything, it was you who has been on a vendetta to impugn the character of anyone who stands up to your BS.

          What’s revealed is that the term “garden variety killing” was unknown to you before March 24, you found a nugget in the news here and here, took up the opposite opinion and kept repeating it like a parrot in an effort to appear intelligent.

          Reporters for three national news organisations took notice – Ta-Nehisi Coates, of The Atlantic, Charles M. Blow, of The New York Times, and Trymaine Lee, of The Huffington Post. Suddenly it was a national story.

          Brooke Gladstone, the host and managing editor of the National Public Radio program On the Media, noted the role the journalists had played, and interviewed two of them. Trymaine Lee says he was contacted, soon after the shooting, by contacts in Florida and went there because he thought the story would resonate. For days it did not. ”We are still dealing with the complications of race, even in our newsrooms,” he said.

          Until the chilling tapes of the 911 call were released – in which screams of what sounds like a young boy and a gunshot can be heard – it seemed to be ”just another garden variety killing”.

          You have already decided on your own what’s racist and what is not and to have a rational discussion about what’s actually said and whats implied in the context of the forum discussion is out of the question.

        “Since I’ve already proven that you took the JackRussellTerrierist comment out of context by providing above link”

        That is a lie. I quoted her in context, and you can chant the lie I didn’t all you want.

        “…it doesn’t make sense, you aim to further explore your claim by moving on to more probing questions from you wrt to your #2”

        That is a lie, and a cowardly lie.

        “And now projecting racism onto me as well.”

        No. You are defending the clear racist statements of your lil’ butt buddy. I just consider you demented…so far.

        “p.s.
        I already know you can’t/won’t so this is where, in the name of expediency, I’ll preemptively tell you to GFY”

        That was two lies. I both could and did. Then you went all bizzaro about some nonsense you found where somebody once used the same terms. (Hint poor old POS: “garden variety” is a term in common usage.)

        “This is simply an effort to shut down debate and silence your detractor…. with the race card.”

        That is a lie. And you are defending her overt racism. It isn’t wrong to call a racist a racist, and she is. Ask her, you lying SOS.

        Now, as to that FY thing…you should give your old sphincter a rest, pard. You are study wearing that puppy out!

    No, no blood test needed. Rags will vett you. He can read the hearts and minds of millions – somewhat like Santa Claus knowing who’s been bad and who’s been good, he just KNOWS who’s a racist. He can smell them through his monitor.

Rags-

“Hey, you have to prove you’re not a racist. If you can’t, you’ve committed a crime.”

A tad out of context?

Sorry, what was I thinking….?

    Quite a few of us have that same question.

    Every. Day.

    Sometimes, I can understand you, and even agree.

    Sometimes.

    I think the judge got what he was maneuvering for all along – an easy way out of this case that can put him in the gun-sight of some nutcase if he ruled with the evidence.

      How would you feel about waiting until you see the response?

      It was a well-written motion, and the Florida case-law makes removing a judge a LOT easier than here in Texas (on the civil law side).

      Still, it will be interesting to see the response.

    Funny… I asked if GZ could request a new judge based on Lester’s bail ruling just a week ago. It doesn’t surprise me that the defense is going this route, as I think it’s pretty easy to conclude that Lester would not be impartial based on the wording of his decision. Regardless of whether or not he’s justifiably angry at GZ, he certainly has beef.

Finally-

Zimm’s lawyer decides to 86 the “go along to get along” and decided to defend his client.

George Zimmerman’s Attorneys File Motion to Disqualify Judge in Case

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/07/george-zimmermans-attorneys-file-motion-to-disqualify-judge-in-case/

I am glad to see the motion to dismiss the judge. I guess I missed the part where Zimmerman did something to warrant having his bail raised and having the judge state that additional charges would be warranted. None of the testimony I saw before the court was misleading or a lie. The prosecution is whining about the defense not coming forth later once they learned what was in the account but I do not see why that would have been expected.

Were the judge and prosecutor not lazy they could have followed up or required the defense to find out the information they needed before setting bail. IMO that is completely on them and dragging Zimmerman back in to make a big show for the press was all part of the railroading. That sequence of events should be grounds enough to get a different judge.

Besides, if the original judge were competent he would have looked at the lack of evidence and dismissed the charges by now.

But I guess we have to remember that a police chief was forced out and a detective was demoted for following the laws and proper procedure in not bringing charges so the message has been delivered to the judge as to the consequences of acting professionally. I foresee there being huge civil suits against the city and Corey facing disbarment hearings once this is over.

And if Zimmerman were a racist, that would – in some eyes – make the legalised buffalo charge OK.

I googled “trekelle perkins.” Pretty unique name, and the only one on facebook is from Florida (went to Apopka High). Probably the same guy, and guess what? His Facebook handle is “trekelle.black”:

https://www.facebook.com/trekelle.black

A cop who identifies himself by his race? Imagine if a white cop railroading a black guy called himself “bull.white”. 100% would be taken as showing racial bias and 100% would result in firing.

how about the sniping on this forum stop…..

… i am absolutely amazed that these idiots (outside of the family (& their counsel) are taken as credible , at any level …
