Mark O’Mara?…… One Word: “Lettitgo”

The search for truth is a journey.   Along the journey you must continually check your position to insure you are following a path of non-agenda. 

Yes, that also means you must check, in addition to your heading, the placement of your feet to insure you are not following a misguided path built by others.   Those pathway stones are laid afore you by people ‘with’ an agenda.  They are generally unknown to you, and very good at non-visibility, because that is their skill set.

Professional deceivers.

We have become very good at spotting them, and predicting where they are headed next.

With that in mind, we do not need, nor do we want,  emails from people, organizations, and/or person(s) apologizing for their previous criticism as they recognize in hindsight the fingerprints upon the stonework.  Regardless of the construct therein, it  matters not.

Such propositions afford neither the sender, nor the recipient, any value.   Consider this a carefully placed fire-blanket acceptance so that any guilt driven internal fires can be extinguished.    One word:  “lettitgo”…

The keen example of Mark O’Mara strikes the tuning fork to the perfect pitch.

zimmerman-016-070113

We, especially I, do not care to read, hear, listen to, or receive messages about, how right we were/are about Mark O’Mara, and how wrong others were.   Again, it matters not.

The time for the lying toxicity of Mark O’Mara to damage his client, George Zimmerman, has passed.    That was the only reason we worked diligently to research, and share, the truth surrounding him.

The time when weakness of truthful character could harm the process of justice for George Zimmerman is well in the rear.    Those issues, as they present and continue, are now solidly between Mark O’Mara and that Simms fella to work out.

Likewise, it does not matter either that George Zimmerman is aware of the nature of his attorney, and painfully well understanding of how damaging he was.  It matters not to us.   Whether or not he, or anyone else for that matter, was/were aware does not change the nature of a self evident truth.

Requesting that we, or I, afford such sunlight or revelation merely to rub the noses of the detractors is nothing short of prideful nonsense.     Pride is antithetical to Truth.   Pride is what stops you from finding the truth when the truth is uncomfortable to your disposition.

The inability to deal with pride is probably what causes this site to dispatch half of the pontificators who find themselves in perpetual moderation.  It is pride which also demands association both of, and for, the prideful.

The truth of things,… all things,…. does not care about your belief system, nor is it dependent on your willing engagement to publicly admit flaws.  Truth does not care for comfort or discomfort.   Truth  exists with or without anyone’s admissions, in any and all of the 360° honed and directed human flaws around it – especially pride.

Once again, we have no issues with Mark O’Mara.  He was just the wrong man for the job – that is all.    The general consensus from the more broad legal community is: there are times when you need a good liar in your corner.   We disagreed then, still do now - so what?

There was a time when that lying presented a danger, that time has passed – move along.

We do not need to prove, yet again, O’Mara a liar – he has done quite a good enough job of that all on his own.   Neither do we need anyone who has come to a new understanding to prove it in our defense, that’s pride.

Beside, we would much rather have been wrong.

Lettitgo !

        Initially confused about the suggestion that MOM disengage, I did search previous posts about him (I am a lurker, not poster, but certainly have found SD’s blog to be the most informative source of unbiased information available … hahah, as an aside, so did the prosecutors!).

        While it is undeniable that MOM is a sleazy and conniving individual, with a fairly broad definition of the truth and a fire in his bones for the defense of HIS judicial system, I would quite frankly state that I expect no more or less in a defense attorney. You get what you pay for, if your only concern is hiring an effective lawyer. Did he lie (i.e. about donations and other things)? Yes. Did he effectively defend the innocent Zimmerman? Apparently so.

        Unlike us, relatively anonymous, online posters, he has to wake up and face a deeply flawed and biased system every day. In order to keep his job, it was necessary to refrain from what we might consider his G_d given duty to uncover dishonestly and malice. Thank our L_ord that he did so effectively, but let us pray ever more fervently for true justice in the system.

        • There is no such thing as “true justice”. Our system of justice is bound together with our emotions, experiences, and prejudices, but it is still the best system in the world.

          The idea of “innocent until proven guilty” has weathered the corruption by so many (looking at you, Ms. Corey) and has been misunderstood by so many others (looking at you, Leathermen crowd and the like), that it is truly amazing to see that these jurors still made the right call. Part of the jury’s ability to make the right call, whether some want to admit it or not, is due to O’Mara’s handling of this case.

          This case was overseen by two biased judges and prosecuted by a corrupt team of lawyers that will hopefully see the consequences of their actions very soon. And, yet, the jury made the right decision. Some credit is certainly due to Mr. O’Mara.

          – A pretty fair amount

          “What are the political affiliations of this law practice?”

          – Hard to say. The managing partner, Jim Beasley, took on the reigns after his father passed. He’s more skilled with medical malpractice, as he has both a JD and an MD, with expertise in molecular genetics. He’s also a civilian pilot, who’s earned the privilege of flying a P-51 Mustang, not a very easy task, especially for a civilian. That should answer your fourth question.

          “What separate agendas are they running?”

          Their agenda appears to be one of making A LOT of money, which, one would think, temporarily aligns them perfectly with the goals of the suit filed on behalf of Mr. Zimmerman.

Since his defense team chose to avoid discussing any and all “character issues,” I’m afraid George will pay the price for that poor decision for the foreseeable future.

      However, your question is still a good one to ponder, because the goal was a not guilty verdict. It was obtained. One can argue that O’Mara was not the right man for the job, but those that argue that aren’t really talking about handling the case, itself, but rather the PR campaign surrounding the case.

          As for O’Mara “wanting” this to go to trial. I wonder if that is entirely accurate, Considering the biased judges he was up against, it seems more likely it was a judgement call that this case was always going to be decided in a court and that that scenario might be better for Zimmerman, as it would provide a judgement by a jury of his “peers”, rather than one individual.

    I recently researched for immunity for George and what it would mean to him in addition to being immune to civil suits and any further criminal charges. I am still not exactly sure why O’Mara has not filed for immunity yet but I have a hunch about his strategy.

    It is pure speculation but I think it’s mostly timing relative to other issues, the NBC suit and others not yet filed.

    So far, I have not found any consistent opinions. That seems absurd to me since the law should be easy to understand about what can happen when a defendant is found to be not guilty by a jury of his peers. In OJ’s case in CA, the law is plain and simple. He had no protection from civil suits.

    I saw this comment by Branca:

    The next legal issue will likely center on Florida’s self-defense immunity statute, 776.032, he said. (The immunity provision was passed as part of the “Stand Your Ground” law.)

    While Mr. Zimmerman’s defense lawyers elected against seeking immunity before trial, they have said they will do so should he face a private lawsuit related to Trayvon Martin’s death, Mr. Branca noted.

    ———————————————————-
    Then I read the statute again:

    Florida’s statute 776.032, is among the broader self-defense immunity statutes, in that it possesses all four qualities of an optimal statute of this type.

    First, it is not limited to particular settings or circumstances (e.g., such as to self-defense encounters in and around one’s home).

    Second, it prohibits even the arrest of the person who acted in self-defense, in the absence of probable cause for such arrest.

    Third, it immunizes against criminal as well as civil liability.

    And, fourth, it provides for the defendant who successfully obtains immunity to recover all reasonable legal expenses (and, in the case of Florida, even compensation for lost income) from the plaintiff.

    Notice the fourth one..

    Some analysts have said that he can recover his legal fees and other damages by seeking immunity and others say no so I have yet to find the correct answer.

    I would appreciate some input/feedback about this post.

There just aren’t many neighbors willing to stick their necks out for each other. That man got out of his truck on a rainy, dark night to protect them all. And when his screams to his neighbors failed to summon another man of courage, he had to save himself. I’m glad the neighbors told the truth on the witness stand, but their testimony proves they heard him crying out & all they did was call 911.

    This thread is acting up with replies, so I’ll put my Beasley response here. Disclaimer: I haven’t researched Beasley to get a sense of their chutzpah.

    It’s my sense that if someone is going to bat for GZ in a big way (beyond suing media outlets), it means taking on all manner of political correctness, racism, the BGI, the state of Florida, Holder, the President, and so on. So my courage question about the Beasley group is really about *that* kind of courage. How much of a stink are they willing to make on GZ’s behalf? Because there are lots and lots of lawsuits that need filing, and in the course of doing that, lots and lots of people will be left completely exposed for the bottom feeders they are.

    What’s needed is the anti-O’Mara. Is that the Beasley group? Hopefully it is … or alternatively, GZ has others who are willing and able to take on his cause. I’m not real optimistic either way.
