Justice in the Trayvon Martin Case — What About For George?
The Trayvon Martin case is supposed to be about justice, but not everything will not be shown to the jury. We always hear “justice for Trayvon,” but what about justice for George?
Sadly, George Zimmerman’s defense team just got handed a major blow by the court. New evidence surfaced last week that paints Trayvon Martin in a completely different light than the mainstream media has portrayed him for the past year. In a series of text messages sent from Martin to friends, a violent side of Martin was revealed, one that would show that Zimmerman was likely attacked and had to use force to defend himself. But Circuit Court Judge Debra Nelson has barred this information being presented in court. This is certainly an unfortunate miscarriage of justice.
Data released from Martin’s cellphone shows texts that Martin sent to his friends where he speaks candidly about fighting, trouble at school, and smoking marijuana, and photos of a gun are also seen. A clearer picture of Martin is coming together. This picture is one of a troubled teen, whose mother was insisting that he move in with his father after being suspended from school.
The photo of the gun found in a text from Martin to a friend would have been very helpful to George Zimmerman’s defense. In the picture, a Smith and Wesson handgun and clip are clearly displayed. This isn’t the only picture of a gun that was found on the phone in question. However, the sad reality is this evidence will not be allowed in court. The prosecution has an image of Trayvon Martin to uphold — one that paints him as the victim of a racially motivated attack. Now, the likelihood of Zimmerman receiving a fair trial is slim to none, and there is every chance that Zimmerman will be painted as violent racist, targeting Martin for no reason.
This is a disgusting development in a case that has already proved itself to one motivated by race and nothing more. During the initial attack, George Zimmerman sustained major injuries, in the form of a broken nose, noticeable bruises, and other cuts to the back of the head. This evidence was deliberately kept under wraps to make it appear that Zimmerman had provoked Martin and then shot him for no apparent reason. But the evidence shows that Zimmerman likely shot Martin in self-defense.
The Trayvon Martin case is one of the tragedies of our time, but not for the reasons the mainstream media wants people to believe. The media needed a scapegoat, and George Zimmerman is that man. Trayvon Martin, the innocent young man portrayed by the mainstream media as nonviolent and an innocent bystander, is clearly a fabrication. It is now easy to see that Zimmerman was likely provoked and had to act in self-defense in order to save himself. The clearest picture of all is that the media thrives on creating scenarios of racism and discord. It would better serve their purposes to have people believe George Zimmerman deliberately attacked Trayvon Martin because he was black than acted in self-defense.
George Zimmerman is the victim in this situation. Clearly, he fired his weapon, but he will never get his chance to prove that he was defending himself. The defense is barred from mentioning any questionable activity in Martin’s past, which would help Zimmerman’s defense. A man is on trial for his life, one that will likely be taken away from him if the courts have their way. This is the consequence of political correctness. Propagate a lie enough and the people will believe it.by
