The race hustlers would have made sure you heard about it.
    The Zimmerman case was not national news. And there never was a Martin case. The issue had been investigated locally, determined there was no case, and put to bed. The national news started when the race baiters decided that it would make good copy, and stirred the pot.

    Two years and millions of dollars later a jury decided that the original decision was correct.

    So if that shouldn't have been news, why should this?

    Haha, that's funny. The prosecution did fail to exist.

    It shouldn't, that's my point.

    Prior to this thread, I had never heard of this case, nor, for that matter, the Zimmerman case until a self defense issue became a racial issue.

    Check the records. I don't think you will find a Martin case related to Zimmerman.

    Typically, dead people are not prosecuted.

    Granted, and the allusion to the prosecution's case is amusing.

    I only heard about this case because my husband was on business in Indy on the 3rd, which was 2 days after Nathan was shot. He saw it on the local news in his hotel room.

    I also didn't hear about the Martin case until Eric Holder got involved.

    What I think some people don't remember is that Martin was shot at the end of February and by the 3rd week in March, it was announced that a grand jury was going to be convened to investigate the shooting. I think everyone wanted Zimmerman tried & hung within 2 days of the situation. For the national media and the race baiters to make it front page news was a little much. It isn't like it was a cold case unsolved and uninvestigated for 22 years.

    I didn't make a thread complaining about how this wasn't.
