Disbar Zimmerman Prosecutor

    Disbar Zimmerman Prosecutor

    Prosecutors are special. They wield the ability to charge, or not charge, criminal defendants in very serious matters. Matters that have a profound impact on society as a whole and on individuals’ lives. With that power though, also comes responsibility and an obligation to be fully forthcoming and honest to the point where prosecutors are required to divulge to the defendant and his or her attorney exculpatory facts; i.e. facts that tend to show innocence rather than guilt. (Facts that support the defendant’s version of events can not be withheld – under punishment for prosecutorial misconduct.) Grossly mischaracterizing evidence could also be grounds for disbarment. Look at Prosecutor Nifong in the DuKe La Crosse players’ case. He withheld evidence and falsely presented evidence and he was disgraced and disbarred. So too should George Zimmerman’s prosecutor in Florida. In her affidavit for the Second Degree Murder charge, she grossly mischaracterized evidence and withheld critical exculpatory evidence from the affidavit. If I was the Judge at the pre-trial probable cause hearing, I would not only dismiss the Second Degree Murder charge, I would also order my Law Clerk to notify the State Bar Association of grossly unethical behavior by the Prosecutor in her selective presentation of facts that omits key exculpatory evidence; and, also misrepresents known facts to such a great extent that is beyond ethical boundaries. What facts did the prosecutor have at her disposal when preparing the affidavit? If she knowingly withheld exculpatory evidence she should be disbarred.

    Media Manipulation of Facts:

    ABC first shows a blurry version of video promoting the false meme that Zimmerman had no visible head injuries when he was brought into the Police Station. However, that video was capable of being seen much clearer than presented by ABC and lo and behold, in the clearer version, certainly available to ABC prior to its publishing the blurry video, you can easily see head injuries to George Zimmerman. Duh! ABC is a racist liberal joke of a news service and is more aptly referred to as Obama’s Propaganda Agency. Also, NBC knowingly edits Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him look like a racist. They supposedly “fired” the unnamed producer responsible for the fraudulent presentation of the facts, but refused to name the person responsible so she or he can still get another job with the ultra-liberal Mainstream Lamestream Media. Numerous news outlets presented pictures of Treyvon as a 12 year old boy. These pictures were used over and over again and are still being used, even though they are over five (5) years old and portray Treyvon much smaller than he actually was on the night of the offence. He was 17. Not 12. Much larger and stronger and with a history of poor decision-making. But the media can only lie for so long until the truth comes out and now the truth is coming out. ABC actually showed a very clear picture showing Zimmerman's serious head injuries.

    What we do know:

    We don’t know all the facts, but we can determine that several facts that are extremely relevant to the Zimmerman affidavit were purposefully omitted in violation of the Prosecutor’s obligation to be honest and disclose all facts, even exculpatory facts. No mention in affidavit of injuries to Zimmerman’s head, both back and front. Zimmerman had a bloody broken nose consistent with a direct blow to the nose; and he had several gashes on the back of his head consistent with being slammed against a concrete sidewalk. Eyewitnesses stated that Zimmerman was on the bottom, that Zimmerman was the one screaming for help, and that the guy who started it all was the one dead on the ground when all was over with. In the affidavit, the Prosecutor actually does this: She put in the affidavit that Treyvon’s Mom identified the voice calling for help on the 911 tape as Treyvon’s voice. However, independent voice analysis shows and the Prosecutor either knew or should have known this, that the voice calling for help was Zimmerman, not Treyvon.

    If someone is getting the **** kicked out of them, they can use deadly force to defend themselves. All the known physical evidence corroborates George Zimmerman’s version of events. Nothing, no evidence whatsoever, supports Treyvon’s families’ version – which is the version bought hook, line and sinker, by this political hack of a prosecutor who sold her ethics to appease. There is no room in the Law for a Prosecutor who so brazenly omits critical exculpatory facts from a Murder 2 affidavit.

    All initial investigators determined a clear case of self defense:

    If I was the defense attorney I would call all the police officers who witnessed Zimmerman’s injurys along with Doctor, Medics etc. with pictures and x-rays to corroborate that Zimmerman suffered serious injury to his nose and the back of his head consistent with being punched in the nose and having his head smashed against a concrete sidewalk. Call the independent witnesses who corroborate Zimmerman was being attacked. And ask the initial detectives why they did not charge Zimmerman that night with any crime whatsoever. Lock them in that if they believed that Zimmerman had committed any offense, surely their sworn duty would have been to arrest him that night. So obviously, they did not think he had committed a crime.

    Also, the first prosecutor who reviewed the facts with the police and decided not to bring charges should be called to testify and explain why she or he did not charge Zimmerman. Why? Why no charges? Be specific with the pictures and other evidence: Did you consider the fact that Zimmerman's nose was broken according to the Doctor's report? Did you consider that ZSimmerman had serious gashes to the back of his head before deciding not to press any charges. etc. etc. Because this is one of the most clearest cases of self-defense you will ever see! All of the physical evidence supports Zimmerman’s version of events. He was certainly in danger of losing life or limb or ending up a vegetable so he did what GOD’S LAW allows: he defended himself. Fortunately for Zimmerman, Florida’s Law remains consistent with God’s Law concerning self-defense. (But not so in England – the direction we are headed in where defending yourself and your house can land you in prison! No lie – look it up).

    Prosecutors bear a heavy burden and most are ethical and honest concerning exculpatory evidence. The Florida Prosecutor in the Zimmerman case is shameful and should be held accountable for her violation of ancient principles enshrined in our Constitution and case law. She knowingly blindfolded lady liberty by hiding numerous critical facts from her Second Degree Murder Affidavit in a brazen political move to appease an interest group.

    The Florida Bar Association should make an example of her; however, bar associations are notoriously liberal and they will probably give her an award or something......

    Appreciate your posting that.

    It is increasingly apparent that "the public trust" that prosecutors and other public officials pledge themselves to, upon taking office, is all quite meaningless all too often. The sons of *****es. :steamed:

    The CRIMINALS in this case are the parents. Ranting and raving about their poor murdered boy, like Zimmerman just walked up and shot him for no reason, when he was 12 years old!!!!!! They whipped up the media and the black community. They need to look up the word MURDERED. It is much different than killed in the commission of a felony assault!!!!

    I'd like to see the PARENTS BOTH LOCKED up and charged with purgery, inciting violence...etc. The facts, as they have been presented, are MUCH different than the parents version...wait, they have NO version except the one THEY made up with out the facts!!!! They make statements, then retract them!! Zimmerman's story hasn't changed since day one. He hasn't changed his story, he told the truth. He knew what happened because he was there...getting assaulted by a 17 yr old THUG..

    Treyvon got Justice. I feel for their loss, but win stupid games, win stupid prizes!!!!

    Based on what evidence? Just because you're losing a fight doesn't mean the other guy started it.

    The physical evidence. Yes, Zimmerman attacked Treyvon's right fist with his nose. (Forensics will show the damaged nose and the bloody and bruised knukles of the offending hand.) Then he attacked Treyvon by slamming his own head into the concrete sidewalk in his effort to freak Treyvon out. (Physical evidence collected at the scene and in photographs show damage to Zim's head and I bet a good evidence technition found zim's blood on the sidewalk where Zim said Treyvon attacked him. Like it or not, Zim's own testimony of what happened is evidence. Moreover, it is evidence that is corrobrated by multiple other pieces of evidence. Therefore, Zim's testimony should be given great weight as it is consistent with all known physical evidence and eyewitness reports. Zimmerman, the attacker,was so interested in attacking Treyvon he asked complete strangers who just happened to be in the general vicinity to help him attack Treyvon by yelling "Help, Help." (911 Tape expert opinion that Help caller was Zimmerman.)

    Also, think about this. Zimmerman was so interested in attacking a random little black kid so much that he called 911 to tell the authorities that he was about physically confront a young boy. Most people with evil intent don't call 911 when attacking someone.

    One othe point that the authorities should know is this: Where was Zimmerman and Treyvon when Zim is on the phone with 911 and told to "not do that" (follow Treyvon) and where were they in relation to Zim's car when the incident went down. Either Zim continued to follow Treyvon which would lead to a belief that Zim may have attacked Treyvon. He was the same distance. Neutral. Or, most probably based upon all the other evidence, Treyvon attacked Zimmerman right as Zimmerman was getting back to or on the way back to his vehicle. This cuts against Zim being the attacker.

    The physical evidence can not make itself up out of nothing. Forensics now are pretty darned sophisticated to such an extent that I'm sure the authorities know which fist Treyvon used to punch Zim in the nose.

    Victim: Who is the vistim in this case? I keep hearing that Treyvon was George Zimmerman's victim. Say what? Treyvon was committing a forceable FELONY INFLICTING GRAVE BODILY HARM ON ZIM. Zim is the victim.

    What other evidence? What evidence is there that TM attacked GZ while he was on the way back to his vehicle?

    Again you point to evidence of GZ being beaten as if that proves who started it. Nobody disputes GZ was getting beaten.

    If there was exculpatory evidence that the prosecutor had, that was not included, and she was required to include it, then that is an issue. If gross misconduct can be proven, can Zimmerman sue her too?

    I don't know what happened between Zimmerman and Martin, but it seems there should be plenty of civil action taken my Zimmerman for the death threats, manipulation of evidence, and pollution of the jury pool with intentionally misleading alterations of evidence.

    Just something to consider. You can start a fight, begin boxing, and the if the other guy pulls a knife, and you reasonably believe your life to be in danger, you can use your gun and deadly force to stop him from stabbing you. My personal rule is not to fight, unless I absolutely have to, especially if carrying.

    Not sure exactly how the sidewalk would play into that.

    I'm sure there are still details that have not yet been disclosed. I think we should all wait until everything is known before choosing sides.

    Bobby Bare- 'The Winner' lyrics

    The hulk of a man with a beer in his hand he looked like a drunk old fool
    And I knew if I hit him right why I could knock him off of that stool
    But everybody they said watch out hey that's the Tiger Man McCool
    He's had the whole lotta fights and he's always come out winner yeah he's a winner
    But I had myself about five too many and I walked up tall and proud
    I faced his back and I faced the fact that he had never stooped or bowed
    I said Tiger Man you're a *****cat and a hush fell on the crowd
    I said let's you and me go outside and see who's the winner
    Well he gripped the bar with one big hairy hand then he braced against the wall
    He slowly looked up from his beer my God that man was tall
    He said boy I see you're a scrapper so just before you fall
    I'm gonna tell you just a little bout what it means to be a winner
    He said now you see these bright white smilin' teeth you know they ain't my own
    Mine rolled away like Chicklets down the street in San Antone
    But I left that person cursin' nursin' seven broken bones
    And he only broke ah three of mine that makes me the winner
    He said now behind this grin I got a steel pin that holds my jaw in place
    A trophy of my most successful motorcycle race
    And each morning when I wake and touch this scar across my face
    It reminds me of all I got by bein' a winner
    Now this broken back was the dyin' act of a handsome Harry Clay
    That sticky Cincinnati night I stole his wife away
    But that woman she gets uglier and she gets meaner every day
    But I got her boy that's what makes me a winner
    He said you gotta speak loud when you challenge me son cause it's hard for me to hear
    With this twisted neck and these migraine pains and this big ole cauliflower ear
    And if it wadn't for this glass eye of mine why I'd shed a happy tear
    To think of all that you gonna get by bein' a winner
    I got arthritic elbows boy I got dislocated knees
    From pickin' fights with thunderstorms and chargin' into trees
    And my nose been broke so often I might lose if I sneeze
    And son you say you still wanna be a winner
    Now you remind me a lotta my younger days with your knuckles a clenchin' white
    But boy I'm gonna sit right here and sip this beer all night
    And if there's somethin' that you gotta gain to prove by winnin' some silly fight
    Well okay I quit I lose you're the winner
    So I stumbled from that barroom not so tall and not so proud
    And behind me I still hear the hoots of laughter of the crowd
    But my eyes still see and my nose still works and my teeth're still in my mouth
    And you know I guess that makes me the winner

    Exactly. It rings hollow when one accuses the "other side" of filling in the blanks with unsubstantiated claims to further their own narrative, when one is engaging in the exact same behavior.

    In Florida, maybe. In Kentucky, the final say on charging any felony is with a grand jury, unless the defendant waives that right.

    The case has not reached a point that requies turning over exculpatory or any other evidence, so this claim doesn't make much sense. Once a deadline has passed, it would be more sensible to suggest disbarrment. The prosecutors may turn over everything at arraignment, by custom, but that doesn't mean they have to.

    See above.

    I truly believe the Florida Bar Assoc. should be taking a HARD look at disciplining Benjamin Crump in the case (Martin's family's civil lawyer...not that they are looking for payday...:upeyes:). He seems to have gone beyond the typical ambulance-chaser efforts to discredit the profession and not only manufactured evidence, but hired a publicist specifically to manufacture a racial crisis, nationwide, all for profit.

    We know that is what all of the evidence publicly available says. Since the available evidence is the basis for legal decisions, I'd say we do "know" that. If someone has a smoking gun that proves the opposite, they haven't yet made it known.
