There are no winners in this tragic case. A young man is dead; Trayvon Martin’s family will never see him again. George Zimmerman – though spared a prison sentence – will never be the same. Having all the evidence and facts available to make an educated, informed decision, the jury ruled Zimmerman acted in self defense. Al Sharpton’s crusade will now have to continue in civil court.
Immediately after the not guilty verdict Saturday night, tweets were sent out about revenge and death threats were aimed at Zimmerman, the jury, and the defense attorneys of this high-profile case. Zimmerman’s home address was even posted on the Internet with “you know what to do.” One thug tweeted a picture of himself holding an AK-47 rifle and saying, “Zimmerman, we comin fo yo life bi*ch.
Hollywood celebs and pro athletes joined the protest as well. NY Giants Receiver Victor Cruz tweeted:
‘Zimmerman Doesn’t Last a Year Before the Hood Catches Up to Him.’
Atlanta Falcons’ Roddy White tweeted:
‘All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid.’
Geraldo Riviera commented on how the jury may have reasoned:
“I see those six ladies putting themselves, on that rainy night, in that housing complex that has just been burglarized by three or four different groups of black youngsters from the adjacent community. It’s dark; a six foot two inch hoodie-wearing stranger is in the immediate housing complex. How would the ladies on that jury have reacted?
Regardless of what you think about the Zimmerman verdict, the jury was somehow able to do what the media refused to do: ignore politics and public pressure. Instead, they chose to focus on the facts, the laws, and evidence of the case.
Few in the media report on the travesty in many inner cities in America where black on black deaths continue to increase with the violent crimes. According to the FBI, 91% of black victim homicides are committed by other blacks.
Few in the media report on the massive numbers of black babies being aborted at Planned Parenthood and other Gosnell clinics, especially in minority neighborhoods. Where is the public outcry over these deaths?
While the Zimmerman case was concluding, at least four more people were murdered in Chicago, one of them an eight year-old girl.
Since the July 4th weekend, dozens of people have been injured and at least 16 killed in Chicago, mostly shooting deaths in one of the strictest cities for gun laws. Not a peep from the media.
Liberals continue using race to divide Americans and it’s getting old. Their hypocrisy is glaring. The media that tried the Zimmerman case and found him guilty (until proven innocent) in the court of public opinion – a year before the trial – should be ashamed of themselves.
It’s also ironic that many in the Party claiming to be pro-women are now insulting the six female jurors that spent weeks in the courtroom away from their families, examined the evidence, and deliberated for over 16 hours before delivering the difficult verdict. Isn’t that sexism?
It’s no surprise Americans distrust the media more than ever. In a recent Pew Research survey, only 28% of people think journalists “contribute a lot to society’s well-being” a 10-point drop since 2009.
If you’re open to truth and are willing to research, you’ll find stories similar to the following atrocious, disturbing tragedy.
GRAPHIC WARNING: STORY IS FOR THE STRONG OF HEART – OTHERS ENCOURAGED TO SKIP TO THE END.
The medical examiner said Christopher Newsome and Channon Christian’s last few hours on earth were horrific and unthinkable.
The newly dating college students were on their way to a friend’s for a movie when they were carjacked at gunpoint by four black men in Knoxville, Tennessee. The following day, January 7, 2007, both families reported them missing.
Newsome’s burned corpse was found near some railroad tracks by a train engineer and Christian’s body was later found at the main crime scene in a trash receptacle. The condition of both bodies and eventual confessions painted a shocking picture of beatings, gang rape, torture, and murder.
Blindfolded, bound, and gagged, Newsome was repeatedly sodomized with an object and eventually shot execution style near the train tracks.
After being raped, Christian sustained injuries to her mouth, anus, and vagina. While still alive, Channon Christian:
“had been beaten about the head with an unknown object, and raped. Afterward, bleach was poured over her Christian’s body and down her throat in an apparent attempt to destroy DNA evidence.”
She was hogtied, stuffed in plastic garbage bags and suffocated to death.
Did the media deliberately bury this story because the monsters that committed these acts were black and the victims were white?
Three of the thugs were indicted on 16 counts of felony murder growing out of rape, robbery, kidnapping and theft, two counts of premeditated murder, two counts of especially aggravated robbery, four counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape and two counts of theft.
Making it worse for the victim’s families, three of the murderer’s are seeking retrials because it was revealed the presiding judge admitted to a drug addiction and was disbarred. It wasn’t until last year that the Tennessee Supreme Court vacated the motions and the state convictions were permitted to stand.
Both families say with the pending retrials they need the community’s support. “After six years, we still don’t have justice for those kids,” said Newsome’s father, Hugh Newsome. “We haven’t had a life in six years.” Lord, have mercy on these grieving parents.
There is no comparing these two cases, yet just look at the selective outrage even though evidence clearly showed Zimmerman acting in self-defense as Martin was on top of him throwing punches. Trayvon Martin was the product of a broken home, had a criminal history and a history of fighting, and was caught up in drug culture – but the media rarely mentioned this.
God bless the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman families; they both need our prayers. No parent should have to lose a son or daughter. And no one should be convicted by the media and have their lives threatened due to racial dividers serving political interests. May God heal and save America.
