Florida Prosecutors Worried That Trial Will Reveal the “Real” Trayvon Martin and not the Sanitized Youngster Verson that the Gun Control and Race-Baiting Activities Portrayed in the Media
The activists all flocked to the cameras … positive that George Zimmerman was a racist gun-toting wanna-be policeman white guy looking for trouble …
As details leaked out, the story changed, but not the attitude. Zimmerman was Hispanic, with a history of helping fellow citizens who happened to be black. Doing nothing more than protecting his community. Not drawing or firing his legally-permitted weapon only when in extremis – head being bashed against the ground as he was allegedly being straddled by Trayvon Martin. Martin’s family, even in their grief, urged the activists to allow the law to take its course, peacefully and without agitation or violence. Not that it did not stop one major media outlet from editing a tape to portray Zimmerman as a racist. Nor did it stop the death threats and harassment.
When the story does not rise to the level of agitation required by the activists, somehow they have a way of stoking the fires of hell to create chaos and self-serving situations.
Hiding the gangsta?
One might ask if the gun control activists and race-baiters are pressuring prosecutors to demonize Zimmerman and evangelize Martin as an innocent victim of a crazed racist.
State prosecutors in the case against George Zimmerman are pushing to keep Zimmerman’s attorneys from bringing testimony about Trayvon Martin’s past during the trial.
The state said in motions filed on Friday they want to prevent Zimmerman’s attorneys from bringing up Martin’s personal life, including his school records, previous suspension from school, fights, text messages sent prior to his death unless related to case and his social media use. The motion also says the state wants to prevent the defense from using Martin’s toxicology report, which showed the level of marijuana in Martin’s blood the night he was shot and killed.
The state’s filings suggest they fear the defense may try to attack Martin’s character, instead of focusing on whether Zimmerman murdered Martin. Assistant prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda argued that Martin’s past is irrelevant and would clearly be designed only to prejudice the jury.

Waiting for the trial …
I am hoping that justice prevails – either way. But, from the information that has been exposed to-date, it looks like Zimmerman is innocent of murder and manslaughter and that the real trial is to keep the jury from becoming an OJ-like jury where facts are replaced by feelings and justice must mean that the black man prevails over everything else. Where the threat of race-based riots color the outcome of the trial.
