Is our Justice system now Mob Rule?
It seams so, lets look at the facts of just this one case. First off we will dismiss the “is it murder or self-defense” question and judgment altogether.
- Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012 – Sanford police are called to 1231 Twin Trees Lane after 911 calls reporting shots fired. Police arrive to find a male victim shot and killed. An incident report says there was a altercation between two males and shots were fired.
- The next day: Sanford police identify the victim as 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and the shooter as 28-year-old George Zimmerman.(Hence forth Mr. M “Trayvon Martin” & Mr. Z “George Zimmerman.”)
Saturday, Mar. 10, 2012:
- The family of Trayvon Martin gathers at the Sanford Police Department, urging police to make an arrest in the case.
“We’re told he’s claiming self-defense.”
No charges had been filed at this time, Mr Z had not been arrested and the crowd at the station was mostly family. The Media was just starting to ramp up and the gas carrying match throwers were on their way.
Tuesday, Mar. 13, 2012:
The family of Trayvon Martin call on the Sanford Police to release the 911 tapes in the shooting.
Up until now we have very limited facts the case is not yet a national firestorm, but the speculation of racism is about to light the fuse catch national attention.
“because he’s black and he has a hoodie on”
“”That is just what we’ve heard from people. I have not heard the tape, I don’t know if that is on the tape, but that is the incriminating stuff that we believe might be on the tape, and the reason why we would want the tape.”
The next day there was this:
Religious leaders gathered at Allen AME Church in Sanford Wednesday to express their outrage.
Stephen Greene is an AME, which stands for African Methodist Episcopal, pastor at a church in Atlanta. This story caught his attention and he said something has to be done and that’s why everyone is coming here. “And also to say that we will not accept injustice, unrighteousness, which is the heartbeat of God and the heartbeat of spiritual leaders and that’s why we’re here,” Houston said.
But what is Injustice? Is it real or imagined? If Mr Z gets life in prison the Martin family and their supporters will undoubtedly think or feel that IS justice, but the opposite is also true for Mr. Z’s family and supporters, would they not think or feel that such an outcome IS injustice? So what are we left with the fear of mob justice…that maybe the case.
Thursday, Mar. 15, 2012: The Florida Civil Rights Association is calling on Gov. Rick Scott to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the case. Friday, Mar. 16, 2012: Family members hold a press conference once again asking police for an arrest in the case. Shooting witnesses also speak out about George Zimmerman’s guilt. Sanford police release 911 tapes in the Zimmerman case.
And the first to pour gas nationally is AL SHARPTON DISMISSES SELF-DEFENSE ARGUMENT IN SHOOTING OF TEEN
The fact that Zimmerman is himself a racial minority has done nothing to assuage accusations that he shot young Martin out of subconscious racism, making this possibly a hate crime. Moreover, the fact that Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested has also been seized on as evidence of racism. While not outright making the accusation, Sharpton certainly went for the outrage angle. “I can’t for the life of me understand how they can justify not making an arrest!” Sharpton batted.
Well at this point here is why sir: “Zimmerman has not been arrested because of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” laws, which state that as long as someone is on their own property, if they have a reasonable suspicion that their life is in danger, they are allowed to use deadly force, even if doing so requires them to pursue their attacker. Under Florida law, therefore, Zimmerman did nothing wrong, assuming Trayvon Martin actually was an aggressor against him.”
The age old question, Who threw the first punch? So far to us it sounds clear cut Mr Z saw someone in his “hood” that he had not seen before and fallowed him believing that this man mite be involved in the resent burglaries. He called 911 to report this while maintaining site of Mr M at a presumable distances to relay his position. Now on the skewing of that 911 call.
Zimmerman’s usage of this slur has further implications than simply his personal character. It bolsters the idea that his killing of Trayvon Martin was at least partially racially motivated. a tiny portion of the recorded 911 call, in which Zimmerman sounds like he utters the phrase “f–king coons” under his breath…. The problem is it didn’t happen among other things that didn’t happen, NBC News and its partner MSNBC reported: Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
How it really went:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
It took weeks for the truth to come out about that but in the meantime we had this.
Notice the photos of Mr M he looks so young and innocent while the photos of Mr Z look crazy and murderess… Yes, well then you have played right in to the leftist media agenda pushing hands.
Let us move on…

Well there you have it the MOB got State Attorney Angela Corey to charge Mr Z with something at least that’s how it look to us. With the trial underway, now in it’s 5th day, one has to ask is the outcome going to be fair or is it going to cave to Mob Justice? … if so God help us.
