Very In Depth Analysis Of: “The Hunting of George Zimmerman”…..

Interesting and VERY comprehensive construction of the George Zimmerman story by a South African Journalist –  James Myburgh.   A “mere snippet” reflects:

[…]  In the chapter on “national delusions” in his 1852 work Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, Charles MacKay noted how “In reading the history of nations, we find that, like individuals, they have their whims and their peculiarities; their seasons of excitement and recklessness, when they care not what they do. We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first. “

wwzimmermanlo

The Trayvon Martin story is a case study in how, even in the modern day, an advanced industrialised democracy can completely lose its senses; and how difficult it is for it to then recover them. In this particular matter a whole society seemingly fixed its mind on the one object of having George Zimmerman arrested, convicted and sent to jail for life, in reckless disregard of the evidence and the law. The mainstream media, so-called civil rights organisations, the Democrat President of the US, the US Attorney General, the Republican Governor of Florida and his Attorney General, and State Attorney Angela Corey all combined forces in an effort to destroy a single, isolated individual.

Yet, as documented above, we now know that the incendiary claims made by the Martin family team – which ignited and then fuelled this state of national hysteria – were almost all bogus. Zimmerman’s legal team came very close to proving, beyond reasonable doubt, that their client had acted in reasonable fear of his life and great bodily injury in shooting Trayvon Martin; an inversion of the usual burden of proof. The Sanford police knew from the beginning that the evidence tended to support Zimmerman’s self-defence claim which is why they had been reluctant to make an arrest.

The failures of the mainstream media in their reporting on this case were manifold. The claims of the Martin family team should have, from the beginning, been treated with some degree of caution. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, and their lawyers, had two motivations in campaigning in the way that they did for the arrest of George Zimmerman. The one was obviously vengeance, the other greed. Following the arrest of Zimmerman Benjamin Crump sent a letter on May 9 to the Retreat at Twin Lakes’ Homeowners’ Association announcing the intention of Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton to file suit. This had always been the intention of the Martin family and their lawyers. Natalie Jackson had sent a letter to the HOA on March 14 2012 demanding that they preserve any evidence relating to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The Martin team reached a settlement agreement with the HOA’s insurers in early April 2013, which Zimmerman’s lawyers estimated amounted to over a million dollars.

Such precautionary scepticism should have been redoubled once the Martin family team had been caught out, very early on, lying about Trayvon Martin’s school record and the existence of and reasons for his multiple suspensions. Instead, they were repeatedly given a free pass, even by the more critically minded journalists and commentators.

The media should also have known to hold back from judgment during the crucial period in which the Sanford police were not publicly divulging the evidence they had at their disposal. Reporters and editors also needed to keep their cool as the mood of national hysteria started building; instead many lost their heads and ran off to join the mob.

From late March 2012 evidence started emerging both of Trayvon Martin’s troubled recent past and of what had actually transpired on the night of February 26 2012. But while individual pieces of evidence were reported on, the mainstream media appeared to be disinterested in seriously challenging the narrative that had been constructed by the Martin family team. Indeed, much media reporting of this time displayed all the symptoms of confirmatory bias: Poorly vetted and inflammatory stories were run in support of the Martin team’s narrative, while substantive evidence that contradicted it was ignored or its significance downplayed.  (read MUCH more and you’d better pack a lunch)

    [I wish to preface my comments by saying this is directed at those who are striving for racial inequality, and not at blacks as a whole.]

    The Scheme team needs to be stopped. Their actions have raised the question of how many times these people have done this? How many times have they played the race card and easily won millions? How much of their efforts have gone to furthering stereotypes and happily lining their pockets? How many people have they hurt for their own gain?

    I hate these people. Not because of the color of their skin, but for the content of their character.

    For me, I judge someone based on their actions and by what words they say and use. In this instance, I have heard nothing but lies. Lies upon lies. I’ve heard them call for the death of an innocent individual. I’ve seen them collecting money from churches, fundraisers, and “charities.” I have heard them taint juries, coerce witnesses, and incite frightening protests. I have not seen a single thing that would lead me to have one shred of respect for them. To be blunt, these are bad people. Criminals.

    Do they care what I say? Absolutely not. And why should they? They are now fabulously wealthy, famous, and the face of a new generation of wannabe civil rights leaders… that don’t care about civil rights.

    They didn’t win the trial, but they are incredibly happy right now. They now know that they have the power to do anything they want. They can pressure anyone, force political ideas, and attack the innocent to whatever ends they desire; and do so without consequence (this is the key). They won the instant George Zimmerman was arrested. All they wanted was an arrest… they got it, and cheered, for their mission was accomplished. They had tested their power and now recognize their potential. Everything after the arrest was just a bonus of just how much they could abuse the system.

    In a presidency and judicial system (DOJ) that is supposed to answer to the people, they were/are being pressured by the vocal few that happen to share the same race. I hate feeling that the president isn’t the president of the United States, but the president of a small, loud, group. As a white male, I am extremely concerned and anxious that my constitutional rights could easily be infringed upon by a government that is doing everything possible to not look out for me, that is doing everything possible to change racial statistics by penalizing me, and that is doing everything possible to show that a law-abiding citizen is no better than a convicted criminal.

    Mr. President, I don’t look like Trayvon Martin, I don’t act like him, I don’t engage in any activity he ever did…. and if you had a son, he would not look like me. 35 years ago, you, Mr. President, would not look like me or act like me. I feel like a second class citizen because I’m not black. I don’t want to feel this way. If someone from the black grievance industry wants to say “well, now you know how we felt years ago,” then ago ahead. If that is the case, I should be able to march on Washington, get support from the media, and get a platform to proclaim what I know to be true. No one wants to listen to a white male talk about racism and racial issues. To them, I am the “white man”, the oppressor, and the racist. This march would be a march to my death. A death that would be racially motivated, completely ignored by the media, and would definitely be in vain.

    I’m sorry this is so long… it’s late at night, and I’m really upset about what I am seeing in this country, and what this country is refusing to see in me.

      It should be noted, too, that many of those who donated to the Martins 1) likely couldn’t realistically afford to give them anything, and 2) likely wouldn’t have donated a cent had they known the truth.

      And to date, it has yet to be revealed how much money they collected or what that money has been spent on… we know of not one family other than the Martins themselves who’ve benefited despite early claims that the money would be used to support families who have been affected by violence.

          I think that the Angela Corey comment is possible for consideration, but still not clear cut winnable under the law.

          The jury found GZ “not guilty”. You will recall MOM lamenting in his closing argument that this jury should have been given the option of finding GZ “innocent”. But that is not called for under the criminal law as it stands.

          Therefore, Corey could claim in her defense that she truly believes this; and thus did not act with “malice” when she made that characterization of GZ post-trial.

          Corey’s comments were clearly out of the line, over the line, etc, but that seems to be her modus and falls in the same category as her flailing attempts to silence Professor Dershowitz.
