Pajamas Media has a post written by Rick Moran. I have to admit that I disagree with him on a number of issues and in particular I disagree that the Zimmerman case was about race.
Whilst Moran makes some good points, I have to castigate him because he has brought with his presentation his own biased outlook. I suggest you read what Moran has to say before proceeding with my post.
At issue for me is the point raised about conservative sites and the fact that most of us recognized that on that night George Zimmerman was facing a young thug. Race has absolutely nothing to do with that description because there are white gangs, bikie gangs, hispanic gangs and of course black gangs. George Zimmerman could have been faced with someone from any one of these subsets, and black remains a non-factor.
What Moran does not seem to understand here is that in this particular case, in Florida, if the shooting had been white on white, no charges would have been laid. If George Zimmerman was the black man (he is in fact a mulatto or mixed race) and Trayvon was white, in the same circumstances, no charges would have been laid. The only reason that charges were laid in the first place, prior to the Grand Jury sitting, was the interference of Pam Bondi and Angela Corey. When Governor Rick Scott appointed Angela Corey the purpose was to bring about charges. As it turns out the charging affidavit contained enough mistruths to be considered an absolute disgrace.
My other bone of contention remains the fact that the Zimmerman case was never about SYG. It is a simple case of self-defense. Even in the Bible men are justified in killing another person when there is danger of death from that other person. The case as it was presented and in keeping with the actual evidence is one where the person should not have been charged.
Whilst it is true that we can never know for sure who started the confrontation, I will continue to have complete scepticism regarding Rachael Jeantel. I do not believe that she was on the phone. There is something very phony about her story.
