And Mark O’Mara says “no deals”!
George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, says his client will not accept a plea deal to avoid going to trial on a murder charge in the death of Trayvon Martin.
On Thursday, O’Mara told In Session correspondent Jean Casarez that he would not allow his client to accept a plea deal. “I wouldn’t plea someone who is innocent. So I think the answer is pretty easily no,” said O’Mara. (continue reading)
Behind the scenes of the fraudulent legal case against George Zimmerman, at the highest reaches of State and FEDERAL law enforcement, the powers that exist are strategically planning how best to walk away from (drop) the case. There is no “there” there; and subsequently how to deploy resources for crisis management.
As Jack Cashill aptly summarized on the pending acquittal:
A reckless and corrupt media made Trayvon a cause célèbre, but the obfuscation will end in court. There, the truth will out. When it does, the major media will lose a good chunk of whatever credibility they have left, and our nation may lose a good chunk of its urban real estate.
Numerous hours of discussion, and vast opinions are being sought. Eric Holder quietly dispatched additional Federal “Peacekeepers” (DOJCRS) earlier this week to Sanford Florida, and also to Miami Florida, for resource coordination and information gathering. In addition the State Attorney General and Federal DOJ have been in communication for an exit strategy.
In Miami, civic leaders appear increasingly worried that Zimmerman could be acquitted or have the charges against him dismissed on self-defense grounds. The Community Relations Board on Tuesday announced plans to create a youth advisory board and hold a young people’s summit to address how the community should react if Zimmerman is found not guilty.

They see the writing on the wall.
The Community Relations Service is the Department’s “peacemaker” for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin. Created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, CRS is the only Federal agency dedicated to assist State and local units of government, private and public organizations, and community groups with preventing and resolving racial and ethnic tensions, incidents, and civil disorders, and in restoring racial stability and harmony.

Unfortunately, because of the insufferable race-baiting, and seriously flawed media reporting on the case, the exit is going to be very difficult. National representatives of NAN (Sharpton), NAACP (Jealous), and Rainbow Push (Jackson) have been contacted for leverage. However, interestingly insiders are reporting the aforementioned are, out of an abundance of caution, reluctant to engage in further discussion. They want nothing to do with the case any more.
Apparently no-one is quite sure whether this reluctance on the professional race-baiting class is based on concerns for litigation, or concerns for their national image being diminished. However, one thing is certain; Their motive is NOT because they feel there is any substantive value, or merit, in continuing to push the “Justice For Trayvon” narrative. Quite the opposite now appears true – the risk is in the sunlight.
Neither Al Sharpton, Ben Jealous or Jesse Jackson want to be on the ground -or in the vicinity- when the acquittal is announced. “Saving face” now appears to be the primary motivation of the team.
Regardless of reasoning, municipal leaders have been contacted by both State and Federal officials to shift their “contingency plans” into more of an immediate “crisis management” effort and urgency.
One opinion/option floated was to use the Christmas holiday as a buffer, and acquittal take place right around Christmas Eve. Another conversation has advice waiting to see what the next hearing on December 11th contributes to the overall public opinion.
Mr. Thomas Battles, the Southern regional director for Community Relations Service, has a pre-established relationship with Special Prosecutor Angela Corey. Various options are being discussed. It will be interesting to see how they align moving forward.
