If you have been following the Zimmerman trial over at Legal Insurrection, you are aware that the great majority of witness testimony has supported Zimmerman's claim that he acted in self defense.
There is no way anyone remotely objective could come to any other conclusion: George Zimmerman is innocent of second degree murder or manslaughter.
There has been a lot of discussion over the 911 call during George Zimmerman's scuffle with Trayvon Martin. Someone is screaming for help. The Martin witnesses claim the screamer is Trayvon, while the Zimmerman witnesses claim the screamer is George. The Zimmerman witnesses are by far the most credible -- and, there are more of them.
So why would Trayvon Martin scream for help while he was straddling Zimmerman's chest and pounding the man's head into the cement? The claim that the screamer was Martin is entirely laughable.
This is a case that should never have gone to trial. It was tried in support of Democrat racial politics, assisted by some conservatives like Michael Savage and Rich Lowry (there are always those who seek to ingratiate themselves with the liberal establishment and media). Now, as the obnoxious prosecutor tries desperately to fend off the flood of defense witnesses, the trial would appear to be headed for an acquittal. Or so one would hope. You can never be sure.
A lot of underclass blacks on Twitter and other forums are swearing to commit violence and riot if Zimmerman is acquitted. I really hope that isn't true, because I really do desire genuine racial harmony and peace, even as I insist on a color-blind justice system (i.e. one that doesn't stage show trials in order to motivate and appease a key constituency).
There's an even more pressing reason why the would-be rioters should reconsider. George Zimmerman isn't the only "crazy-ass cracker" with a gun.
