Prosecutorial Fail: Why George Zimmerman Walked

August 13, 2013 By: Keiron Jackman Category: Current Events, Headlines, legal

The State of Florida vs. Zimmerman (Zimmerman) will continue to baffle legal scholars and court observers for years to come. This is a truly historic case. Unfortunately, Zimmerman will be historic for all the wrong reasons. It will be known both as a symbol of justice and injustice. How is that so? Some will point to this case as evidence of the bias that permeates the justice system and others will state the jury has spoken. The sad truth is both sides are correct.  Both sides are correct because George Zimmerman may not have been guilty of second-degree murder but he is guilty of a crime. Notwithstanding the criminal profiling that obviously took place prior to the chase, one could possibly make an argument that the facts and the evidence did not support Zimmerman had any ill-will, spite or hatred toward Trayvon. Nevertheless there was a crime committed and facts show that Zimmerman would be guilty of felony murder. Allow me to make my case.

Obama in Kenya with his grandmother

This article is written with the purpose to put an end to the controversy surrounding the birthplace of President Barack Obama, and to render the so-called “Birthers” moot.  Moot, not because he is already President but rather because his birthplace is of no concern as far as the Constitution and laws of this Nation would have it. Upon reading the complete article an honest assessment of the facts would render President Obama a natural born citizen and entitle him to the full participation in the political process. Yet as sure as the sun will rise in the morning there will be doubters – after all Jesus Christ did not convince all he was the Son of Man.

A year and a half ago, I published an article on this blog called, “Arizona Law will be found unconstitutional?” The article is about the immigration-type law, S.B. 1070, signed by Gov. Jan Brewer on April 23, 2010 which was intended to curb the influx of undocumented aliens coming into Arizona or as Gov. Brewer put it, to protect Arizonans from the “murderous greed of drug cartels” and “destruction happening south of our international border that creeps its way north.” (more…)
