So here's the thing. The prosecution in the Zimmerman-Martin case had a lot on their side:

  • The President of the United States who compared the dead teen to his own son (completely unprecedented).
  • The U.S. Department of Justice which (unconstitutionally) financed and orchestrated protests against the defendant.
  • Most of the major media dutifully carrying the president's water to keep this a case about race, and editing actual evidence to manufacture racial bias (SEE BELOW)
  • Major threats of violence and civil unrest if the defendant was not found guilty.
  • A judge heavily invested in a guilty verdict of some kind (thus she offered the lesser charge of manslaughter once it was evident that second-degree murder could not be proved).
  • Months of 24/7 national media coverage portraying the victim as a 13 year old rather than a man big and strong enough to break the defendant's nose with a single punch.
  • And ultimately a jury that had to know they would be living in fear for a long time to come should they find the defendant not-guilty.

The fact that the prosecution could not make its case was ultimately due to one thing, the testimony of the forensic expert who demonstrated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman when he was shot. Even if Zimmerman had provoked the encounter by "following" Martin, Martin still made the choice to engage Zimmerman and break his nose, and, as the forensic expert proved, proceeded to harm Zimmerman further.

The jury had absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose by finding the defendant not-guilty. They will probably have to move or live in hiding for many years. The fact that they found the defendant not-guilty is glaring evidence that the prosecution itself had none - which is why in the end - the prosecutor told the jury to judge "with their hearts". In other words, "ignore the evidence", "don't use your brains", "go with your feelings."

Sadly, this is what many have done, gone with their feelings. The great tragedy though, is the suspension of brains to protect Barack Obama. Because ultimately this is his campaign, which is why he interjected himself into it from the beginning. Otherwise, it would have been just another shooting, which happens hundreds of times per day in this country.

Obama needs division, strife, unrest, and crisis, to "fundamentally transform America." It's right out of his community organizing Saul Alinsky handbook. Trayvon Martin has been just another useful body in that campaign. Watch and see.

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he's up to no good. ... He looks black.

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: Okay. This guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic?

ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.
