It's been a rough week for The George Zimmerman Fan Club.  Really rough.

First you have George getting his second police stop for speeding, this time receiving a summons unlike the previous "warning".  Then you have this entire bruhaha at his home as his soon to be ex-wife attempts to remove the rest of her things - which gets George arrested - even though the entire process had been previously negotiated so that George wouldn't be there.

By the wife’s account, she and her husband had agreed by text message that she could pick up some belongings from the home and that he would stay away until she was done.

Instead, Sims said, George Zimmerman showed up with a “400-pound bodyguard” and a “blonde friend” and began recording his client’s movements. She then began using an iPad to tape him, he said.By the wife’s account, she and her husband had agreed by text message that she could pick up some belongings from the home and that he would stay away until she was done.

But now on top of George's own actions you have the Medical Examiner from his Murder case alleging that the prosecution essentially Threw The Case.

So what does a person like this have to say about it?

The media falsely portrayed Martin as a "young kid" in all their photos, when he was a 17 year old. They still refer to him as a "young child."  

Besides that, please know that the DOJ (Department of Justice) was behind Trayvon Protest - they funded them.  [No, they funded Sanford Police's response to the protests]

The amount of race baiting is shocking from the media... they are saying Blacks don't get justice in the courtroom and the jury was not the peers of Trayvon.

I watched last night, as MSNBC had on saying it was due to the race, Zimmerman was not convicted and also implied that the gun lobby was a big part of the problem.

This woman Melissa Perry Harris on MSNBC is one of the worst for race baiting and it is completely shocking how she is saying blacks are not safe against racial hate.  How are they allowed to do this?  How can the news be so biased and do such race baiting?

The amount of hate the media is trying to cause from one race to another is appalling.  I have never seen anything like this!  Why are they doing this?  Why are they trying to get people enraged and have a race war?

They're are allowed to express their opinions, which is protected under the first amendment, but more importantly what they're saying is supported factually.

More important than even the verdict itself was the perspective and worldview that this racial Rorschach Test became.  Many black people did see this case very differently than some whites and particularly conservatives.

This case made Black Kids Afraid for their lives, it told them that their existence was less important and less valuable than the lives of others.  It didn't take The Media to make them feel that way, it simply takes paying attention.

And now we have this from Dr. Bao.

According to Bao, the medical examiner, state attorney’s office, and Sanford Police Department all felt that Martin “got what he deserved.” Bao also claims that he received the strong, though subtle, message not to speak on certain things:

“He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,’” said Bao’s legal counsel, legendary Attorney Willie Gary.

Gary said prosecutors never asked Dr. Bao a question crucial to their case.

He wanted a question that would have allowed him to explain to the jury with scientific evidence how there was no way Trayvon Martin could have been on top of George Zimmerman, Gary said.

Gary said that question never came.

If Trayvon Martin wasn't on Top of George when the final shot rang out, if he wasn't in the process of either "reaching for the gun" (which was underneath George's body and his own leg) and wasn't giving him a "Ground and Pound" Beating -- why exactly did George have to shoot him other than in a display of the same kind of RAGE he displayed the other day when he smashed Shellie Zimmerman's Ipad?

What can be said to defend this man now, that even the surveillance video is out to get him?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
