Obligatory Zimmerman Found Not Guilty Post

The NY Times story is good enough to provide many, many “Justice 4 Trayvon” photos, though they forgot to show the riots in Oakland

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty late Saturday night of second-degree murder. He was also acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge.

After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he assumed the hoodie-clad teenager was a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death.

Anyone else get the feeling that NY Times writers Lizette Alvarez and Cara Buckley are really bummed out? The comments were degenerating into the typical filth, and lack of real facts, one would expect from Liberals, so they closed them. CNN points out that Zimmerman might be free but he’s a marked man. Which is weird, because I though liberals were the party of peace? Oh, right, that’s their claim, but they are the ones who are consistently throwing out death threats.

I’m not going to bother diving into the fever swamps and excerpting comments and commentary. Nothing I could pull would surprise anyone in the least, and I just do not have heart on a Sunday morning to do it. However, guess what’s up at the White House petition website already?

Civil Rights Prosecution of George Zimmerman by United States Department of Justice for death of Trayvon Martin

Petition Requesting Prosecution of George Zimmerman for depriving Trayvon Martin of his Constitutional Rights of Life and Liberty by the United States Department of Justice, Eric Holder, United States Attorney General in United States District Court as swiftly and expeditiously as is possible.

There’s only 499 signatures for it at the time I accessed the page. We’ll see what happens during the day. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if the highly politicized Obama/Holder DOJ opens an investigation. Nor would I be surprised if the Martin family sue George Zimmerman, which is their right.

    Monday night, it has 21,000 signatures.

    But then, this whole “petition” website is a fraud. Obama doesn’t care what normal people think. Has ANY petition been addressed?

    BTW, DOJ can’t find any wrong in Zimmerman as he was found NOT GUILTY of the crime because of SELF-DEFENSE. Thus, self-defense rules out anything else. Self-Defense means Zimmerman was the victim.

    Will the DOJ claim racial discrimination by Trayvon Marton upon Zimmerman? He did call him several racist terms, did he not?

    I’ll sit here waiting for that investigation. … … … … (checks wrist watch) … … … sigh.
