Remember, all they ever wanted was a “trial”.

In other news, all the libs ever want is a vote, and all gays ever want is acceptance.

    Well Crump also wanted a big financial payout. He got the HOA where the shooting took place to give an undisclosed amount, which was likely seven figure policy limits. This acquittal potentially messes up his plans to collect millions more.

    The Martin’s families’ loss is tragic. But this trial was a travesty and the jury did the right thing.

    Angela Corey is the one suffering a downfall… She will be blamed by left and right.

      Eric Holder is being put in a pickle.

      Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy…

      Certainly Zimmerman’s reputation was damaged by distortions and falsehoods announced by these lawyers. Perhaps a defamation and unjust enrichment suit could be lodged by Zimmerman with respect to the several hundred thousand those lawyers pocketed from the HOA. (The settlement amount was not announced, but it was reported that the Martin side refused 1 million and insisted on more.) Further, since Zimmerman was acting on behalf of the HOA, the HOA may owe a duty to compensate Zimmerman for losses and expenses incurred.

      Fiftycaltx in reply to EBL. | July 14, 2013 at 2:36 pm

      Anyone care to discuss how this law is going to cause the state to pay for Zimmermans legal defense and keep the Martins from suing?

      776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.—

      (1) A person who uses force as permitted in s. 776.012, s. 776.013, or s. 776.031 is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless the person against whom force was used is a law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 943.10(14), who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the officer identified himself or herself in accordance with any applicable law or the person using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.

      (2) A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.

      (3) The court shall award reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection (1).

    All they wanted was an arrest according to ex police chief Bill Lee of Sanford. The arrest allows civil suits for wrongful death to proceed. Crump did not care that the police dept would be exposed to false arrest and the state for malicious prosecution. The city manager and mayor exposed the city to lawsuits from Zimmerman irregardless of repeated warnings, and Corey did it for Crump also and she cannot claim ignorance either. The question is why would city and state officials break the law for a plaintiff’s lawyer?

Henry Hawkins | July 14, 2013 at 11:09 am

What they want is a stage to push The Narrative. A nationally covered criminal trial fits the bill.

“All I want is to manufacture a racial incident so I can sue the HOA and get the limits of its insurance liability policy.”

    Crump’s actions in regard to this case are reprehensible and criminal.

    He should lose his license and be prosecuted.

    fmudd in reply to Observer. | July 14, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    Heh, wonder what Crump (and the entire Martin/Corey/DOJ crew) will be saying when it eventually comes out that “Dee Dee” tried to cover for Trayvon when he plotted out his attack.

    Notice on the stand she said didn’t even think twice about Trayvon Martin not calling back because she thought he had been in a fight.

    She knew he started that fight, which is why she didn’t want to be on the stand to lie her ass off.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Observer. | July 14, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    All this talk about “civil rights”…. so, does George Zimmerman not have ANY rights, civil or otherwise?

    Cory witheld evidence. Crump obstructed justice and tampered with evidence. The NBPP has openly and unequivocally called for Zimmerman’s death. NBC started the ball rolling with their selectively-edited 911 tape. The trial judge was questionably objective. CNN broadcast Zimmerman’s SS number and other personal information, which was not redacted by the district court. The State of Florida refused to send this to a grand jury, opting instead for a special prosecutor, who demonstrably was not objective. That’s just my short list…

    So, what about George Zimmerman’s rights? Does he have any, and if so, who will guarantee them?

      not_surprised in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | July 14, 2013 at 2:01 pm

      add allowing the civil suit to preceed the criminal trial?

      “He is guilty! I can feel this in my heart! I don’t care what the evidence, witnesses, or even the jury says! All of that is racist, anyway. It’s now open season on Blacks! (Despite the fact that Blacks have been going through Open Season with each other for years now.)”
      – Liberals.

        you get the thumbs down because you are falsely ascribing such statements.

        There are plenty who call themselves liberals who did not think that way. These people are something else. By all means call them Marxists. Name them for what they really are instead of ascribing their attitude to folk who actually do believe in justice.

      Mark30339 in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | July 14, 2013 at 6:49 pm

      Great post TrooperJohn. You might add that the same Eric Holder justice department that is being urged to prosecute GZ for a federal civil rights crime, already took sides by funding part of the Anti-Zimmerman protests. Hold on for deja vu all over again.

      Crawford in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | July 14, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      “So, what about George Zimmerman’s rights? Does he have any, and if so, who will guarantee them?”

      According to the Holder “Justice” Department, only blacks are entitled to civil rights.

This video tape was taken *after* the paramedics cleaned him up. How stupid are these people!?

    fmudd in reply to CrustyB. | July 14, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    What’s fascinating is when you mention the fact that it doesn’t matter how bad the injuries were, George Zimmerman STILL had a right to shoot the thug.

    inspectorudy in reply to CrustyB. | July 14, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    You may as well ask “How deep is the Ocean”. The answer is absolutely beyond the human mind to comprehend. Show me one country in our world where they have successfully established a democratic form of government and maintained it.

Carol Herman | July 14, 2013 at 11:41 am

The Martin camp is floundering! When you see the left wing media forced to interview Crump, that means there’s no victory dance on top of the ocean liner run by the State.

Ahead? Maybe, people will focus on getting rid of Corey? Rick Scott’s career as governor has to find some way to recover, no? And, Jeb Bush can’t swim into the 2016 presidential slot as a nominee, because half-nelson’s face will follow him. I can see the Chris Farley imitators now.

Good comedy will trump (crump and company).

Also, since Don West has filed complaints against half-nelson’s courtroom behaviors, does the “upper echelon” in Florida’s Juice System. Oops. I meant justice system, make believe what happened to Zimmerman is honkey-dorey?

Waiting for answers.

Waiting for books.

And, laughing that Crump’s the mumbler in chief. (You know, he didn’t have Dee-Dee by his side, either.)

Tom22ndState | July 14, 2013 at 11:58 am

Now that the truth has outflanked these race hustlers perhaps justice can be meted out to all? The media who aided and abetted this travesty, the race industry who profited from this narrative, and all the public officials who ginned this show-trial. Let us shout from every hillside-

These vermin should be mercilessly hounded by their shameful acts and forced out of their respective positions of influence.

Conservative Beaner | July 14, 2013 at 12:01 pm

You just can’t win with these jerks but by all means the Zimmerman case is not over.

NAACP/Rainbow Coalition pushing for a Civil Rights trial.

More lawsuits against Zimmerman by the family of Trayvon to soothe the pain of their loss.

Zimmerman of course should start lawsuits against the city of Sandford,Seminole County and the state of Florida for this farce of a trial.

Former Police Chief Bill Lee and Lead Investigator Chris Serino should file a lawsuit to get their old jobs back or be compenstated financially.

MSNBC/NBC should feel the pain for doctoring the 911 call, don’t even try to hide behind the first ammendment you jerks.

Last but not least the DOJ which used taxpayer dollars to drum up a charge using race to get a trial.

Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of war.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Conservative Beaner. | July 14, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    I’m still looking for LULAC and La Raza Unida to rush to Mr. Zimmerman’s defense. Isn’t that one of their avowed purposes?

    Our local LULAC mouthpiece, Johnny Mata, opines on everything else… except this. I wonder why.

      The only villain in this world is the straight, white, Christian man. You didn’t know that?

      Don’t worry, though. In due time these race-baiters, race hustlers, etc. will wish they had the “white villain” to demonize.

      Great Britain is seeing this first hand with the Woolwich murder.

      Conservative Beaner in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | July 14, 2013 at 1:36 pm

      Usted esta muy gracioso.

      It isn’t going to happen because he isn’t Mexican enough. But if there was any financial or political gain they would step in, especially if the other party was white.

      I hate those guys.

        My cousins are part Hispanic with Mexican-American bloodline… plus Australian mother (bringing in Irish and English bloodlines)…. However, George is not Mexican-American. He has an Afro-Peruvian-American heritage.

      I believe La Raza isn’t defending Zimmerman because he’s not Mexican.

    inspectorudy in reply to Conservative Beaner. | July 14, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    Beaner, you may have brought up the beginning of the impeachment of Eric Holder. If that numbnuts decides to go after GZ with a civil rights charge he may just be impeached. Any politician who jumps on that bandwagon had better be from and all Black district or they will see what justice means in the next election.

He uses the quote that the video is “the icing on the cake”.

They got their million dollar cake and are hungry for more, but they could be sued for lies, fabrications and slander.

But we now have to put up with another election with all these low info voters holding a torch for Trayvon, despite all the evidence of fraud and prosecutorial misconduct. The Democrat/Media/Hollywood conglomerate has their propaganda tool still intact, with a fresh face on it.

“Not Guilty” may have only strengthened the inner rage. My Facebook friends of friends community mostly blame GZ for being a wannabe cop, profiling, carrying, disobeying the 911 “order”, etc. A few clear people present rational debate, and are met largely with venom for GZ, guns, racists.

ALL the coordinated propaganda has been absorbed by the unwashed masses. The battle continues.

    Ever notice how the race baiters/hustlers can never quite get the real saint they are looking for?

    – Rodney King (Theif, Wife Beater, Drug User and Seller)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodney_King

    – OJ Simpson (Killer of his Wife and Lover, got off from quite frankly brilliant defense)

    – Amadou Diallo (Shot while disobeying a direct order from police. Pulled out wallet in complete darkness. Of course, everyone expected police to just wait and see if they get shot at.)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amadou_Diallo_shooting

    And now of course, Trayvon Martin, the thug that attacked the wrong man.

    I can keep going.

    Wonder when they’ll #1. find a real saint to rally around or #2. actually fix their own communities which has been in shambles thanks to their OWN handy-work.

    Detroit and Chicago, anyone?

      Crawford in reply to fmudd. | July 14, 2013 at 7:08 pm

      The 2001 riots in Cincinnati were because “cops are murdering our young black men”, and the race-baiters listed 11 cases. There were TWO cases in the list that were not obvious self-defense or the defense of others, and those two both resulted in charges against the police. A conviction in one case, AFAICR.

      One of the “young innocents” climbed into a patrol car, shot the officer, then died when she returned his shot.

    serfer1962 in reply to Midwest Rhino. | July 14, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Midwest…the fallout is gonna be Blacks just voting for Kommiecrats, never the GOP again…oh, wait

      Midwest Rhino in reply to serfer1962. | July 14, 2013 at 3:21 pm

      I’m not referring to any blacks, just regular average joe white guy career guy, family man/woman, (mostly) that have been misled, probably from 7th grade on.

      The truth shall make them free via blogs like here, but HuffPo and Media Matters are intent on countering that, along with Google and Zuckerberg.

      As for blacks, they’ve had a couple generations raised up like Trayvon, but they may see through the charade of this trial more than others. And hard to say if the loudest voices really represent the “silent majority”.

Usually, settlements of civil claims such as what the HOA presumably settled with the Martin family are inviolable and are virtually impossible to un-do.

HOWEVER–depending on the law of Florida–if the HOA’s insurance company was induced into the settlement due to provable fraud on the part of Crump et al., they might be able to attack the settlement, or perhaps if not, to sue Crump directly for damages (constituting the amount of the settlement payout + legal fees etc.)

I think it’s at least worth while for the HOA insurance company which made the payout to look into it.

Insurance companies HATE being defrauded.

It’s no different conceptually then someone filing a life insurance claim on their spouse due to a presumed “accidental” death; insurance company pays off/settles the claim; then later on it’s discovered the spouse murdered the deceased. Obviously the insurance company can get the money back due to the fraud.

    Uncle Samuel in reply to Marco100. | July 14, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Well Ben Crump is a fraud perpetrating fraud.

    jayjerome66 in reply to Marco100. | July 14, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    The insurance company isn’t going to do bupkis (an old legal term) to recover any money from Crump et.al.

    They settled so fast after the protests because a million or two was an insignificant amount to avoid negative publicity; and now, no matter the fact that they were strong-armed and swindled into settling, they’re not going to risk future blow-back from the huge numbers of people (black & white) who still believe George is guilty, and who won’t at all like hearing Trayvon’s ‘grieving’ parents are being hounded to return money justly theirs.

By the way, here is a link to the transcript of Zimmerman and the Non-Emergency Operator. It’s nice to have the facts ready when the sheeple throw out the “Zimmerman should have stayed in the truck just like the cops told him to.”

Henry Hawkins | July 14, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Are there any studies or articles that total up the gross income of the race hustling industry?

A lot of people have a literally vested interest in racism, that is, they’ll lose money if racism ends.

    mariner in reply to Henry Hawkins. | July 14, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    DUH!

    That’s why they have to continually stoke the fires.

    God forbid they shut up and black people live peaceably alongside others.

    Ragspierre in reply to Henry Hawkins. | July 14, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Henry, I know of no such study.

    I DO know that Jessa Jackson and Al Sharpton are very wealthy men. I DO know that the latter should be behind bars. I DO know that a lot of their wealth has been gotten by mau-mauing American businesses, using race as their crowbar.

    In most major American cities, they have their Mini-Me imitators. In Houston, we have our own Calypso Louie wannabe, who victimizes his own people like a street pimp.

    This will only cease when black Americans make it cease.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to Ragspierre. | July 14, 2013 at 4:36 pm

      Yes, in Raleigh we have Rev. Dr. William Barber, prez of the NC NAACP, aka Reverend Soulglow The Buffet Slayer (fat guy), currently hustling race in protest of actions of our brand new state GOP triumvirate of house, senate, and governor. They protest every Monday morning at the open of NC legislature, called ‘Moral Mondays’, replete with shipped in SEIU-types and fake ‘arrests’, you know, where they are ‘arrested’ in front of TV cameras, then essentially taken behind the capitol building and released.

    they got a very big payout from the Martin Anderson case.

Yancey Ward | July 14, 2013 at 1:49 pm

I think one of the bloggers here should do a legal analysis of the possible federal charges that might be levied by the DOJ in this particular case. I am not a lawyer, but my reading is that this is tough to do against a private citizen like Zimmerman.

    Browndog in reply to Yancey Ward. | July 14, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Holder already sent a team of FBI investigators down to Florida to investigate Zimmerman before criminal charges were filed and found nothing. Probably why they went ahead with criminal charges.

    It appears they hope to glean new evidence from the trial to proceed.

    Good luck with that.

      fmudd in reply to Browndog. | July 14, 2013 at 2:27 pm

      Oh, and guess what, Zimmerman can NOW invoke SYG to deal with any civil lawsuits.

      This is why O’Mara didn’t invoke SYG before; Zimmerman wouldn’t be able to invoke SYG defense after he was acquitted.

      Race-baiters, foiled again 😉

      Just because there’s no evidence doesn’t mean Holder won’t find a properly biased judge and launch another year and a half of pure hell against Zim even while Crump and his team is slamming civil lawsuits against him fueled by the proceeds of the HOA suit.

      If I were a horribly cynical person, I would say both of these assaults will be intended to prevent Zim from producing a “How I Was Railroaded” book and making money from it. But of course they aren’t. No way. Innocent lambs only concerned with justice. *cough*

        Browndog in reply to georgfelis. | July 14, 2013 at 5:45 pm

        I agree, however, being found “not guilty” by a jury of your peers still carries a lot of weight in this country.

        I think it would take a banana republic/dictatorship to change that….not saying that won’t happen in my lifetime either.

there is a law on the books to deal with conspiracies, RICO the haters.

    Midwest Rhino in reply to Tortuga. | July 14, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    ianal, but I’d vote for anyone that would aggressively root out organized cabals that seem to control even smaller cities. RICO would find many city halls and adjoining legal offices full of cronyism and graft, I suspect.

    When we have powerful guys like Durbin pouring a bunch of bucks into even smaller town mayoral races, we have to wonder what he is trying to buy. What is the chain of (under the radar) command that went from Obama to Corey to the local police?

    But of course rooting out that level of organized and entrenched corruption would be fought from every corner of power, most of which are unionized and/or involved.

    Short of RICO and the FBI, or some loud legal insurrectionists, it seems we continue to slide into the abyss. Are we going to deal with Benghazi, Lois Lerner and the IRS, Fast and Furious, etc. Huge scandals are ignored … but everybody can focus on poor Trayvon.

    and now …… are Republican leaders moving us right along to climate change and comprehensive open borders, instead of ever fighting lawlessness? Good grief

The State’s prosecutors are more culpable in this mess of a case than was Mr. Crump. Prosecutor Corey in her post verdict interview, seemed to indicate that the reason for a trial was to put the facts in front of “the people”. Considering the evidence-lite case they put on and the jury’s verdict, that sounds like admitting to a show trial. Can’t get rid of the Ben Crump’s of the world, but hopefully states can fire the Angela Coreys out there. As West said, they are a disgrace.

Benjamin Crump…brainpan of a gnat, that one.

When I see It’s-All-About-The Benjamin(s) Crump, ESQ, not to mention Sharpton and Jackson, for some reason this comes to mind:
