    Was the prosecution of Zimmerman politically motivated from the White House ?

    I've been asking that ever since the Black Panthers put a contract out on George Zimmerman and the Obama's DOJ didn't file charges against the Black Panthers. The Black Panthers comitt a felony and aren't prosecuted ? What are the Black Panthers connection to Obama ?

    Starting to look like that the Obama White House was heavily involved in seeing that Zimmerman was prosecuted when they knew that Trayvon Martin was just your typical urban street thug and Zimmerman was a law abiding citizen who protected his life under the laws of Florida.

    >"Judicial Watch, Inc. on April 24, 2012 launched an investigation into the Trayvon Martin case based on reports that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) had sent a secret team of “peacekeepers” to Sanflord, Florida, where Martin was shot on February 26, 2012 after wandering in a gated community after dark. George Zimmerman, a resident of the community and its neighborhood watch captain, is currently on trial for Martin’s death though he maintains he acted in self-defense."< It's all here -> Little-Known DOJ Cell Watches Trayvon Martin Protests | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier

    >"A largely unknown group of Justice Department officials has inserted itself into the local Florida protest movement surrounding the killing of Trayvon Martin, assisting the protestors and attending their meetings and rallies.

    While the officials are tasked with preventing racial violence, it appears that in carrying out their duties, they have provided significant assistance to those protesting the killing of Martin, who black, by George Zimmerman, who is half white and half Hispanic."< -> Little-Known DOJ Cell Watches Trayvon Martin Protests | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier

    I'm sure they had something to do with it.

    Well......going down this route...Lead Homicide Detective Serino wanted Zimmerman charged with manslaughter from the very beginning, he didn't believe Zimmerman's story. Are you saying the decision not to charge was political?

    REASONABLE DOUBT HAS BEEN EVIDENT FROM CHARGES BEING PRESSED. WHITE HOUSE COMMENTS AND RACE BATING CAUSED THIS TRIAL.

    Serino's capias was procedural. Serino just testified that he did believe Zimmerman's story.

    Chief Lee just did an interview in which he stated that he was asked by the city manager to arrest Zimmerman even if charges would just have to be dropped.

    So, the theory that it was pure politics to arrest, sure seems to be supported.

    Ex-Sanford police chief: Zimmerman probe 'taken away from us' - CNN.com

    It was a matter of protocol, Lee said. Arresting Zimmerman based on the evidence at hand would have been a violation of Zimmerman's Fourth Amendment rights, he said. Thus, the Sanford police presented a "capias request" to the state's attorney, asking that the prosecutor determine whether it was a "justifiable homicide," issue a warrant for arrest or present the case to a grand jury.
    Based on Serino's (and Singleton's) recent testimony, I think it's pretty clear that was accurate.

    Perhaps. But in a situation where there is some doubt surrounding a claim of self-defense when using deadly force, a trial to determine if self-defense was the case is not unreasonable.

    Regardless of her performance at trial, at least one witness claimed the victim was not the aggressor. When this is combined with other testimony expressing confusion about what was witnessed (or heard); going through a trial process would hopefully resolve the issue.
    Please do me the courtesy of waiting a few minutes before "quoting" any comments. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post any comment before the final product is ready. Thanks.

    I think it well could have been politically motivated but I seriously doubt it had anything to do with Obama or the White House.

    This case will never be resolved. If Zimmerman is found guilty people will believe Obama and the government was active in achieving that. If Zimmerman is found not guilty many will believe a killer got away with one.

    The OJ Simpson trial is long settled but never resolved. I for one and one of many who have a gut feeling OJ was guilty but there just wasn't enough evidence available to fully name him as the killer. And he very well may not be the killer but finding someone else who would have interest in killing those two was a dead end.

    Zimmerman will be on trial for the rest of his life, rightly or not.
