The George Zimmerman Trial

I haven't been following the trial closely, but have been paying attention. The verdict of not guilty was found: It's a good thing.

It is the job of the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. They did not do this, therefore the verdict of not guilty is the only logical conclusion to be reached. Whether Zimmerman or Trayvon was in the right, we'll probably never know because none of us were at the crime scene......

But here's what we do know:


  1. MSNBC edited the tapes to fit a particular narrative
  2. From the visual evidence Zimmerman was not the agressor
  3. The appeal to emotion for the jurors did not work
  4. Trayvon has had trouble with the law in the past
As a physicist and mathematician, I am glad that the jury judged based upon the evidence that was presented in court, weighed both side's arguments and came to a solid conclusion. I'm glad that none of them bowed to the altar of political correctness and caved in just to fit a story to a  narrative. 

I think everyone in this trial is going to either need the witness protection program, or asylum to another country...It's going to get ugly....prayers for everyone involved.

I'm absolutely sick of the race wars, and reverse racism that goes on by some (not all) in the black community. Why are we not up in arms when we take one of our own due to gang violence? Why are we not up in arms, when we see the breakdown of the family in the black community? Why are we not up in arms over abortion, which claims more black babies than all other groups? Why is it that when it's only someone of a different ethnicity that we get up in arms about violence in our communities? 

We need to stop living in the past, and get on with our lives. 

I'll say it again, I do not know who was in the wrong, or who was in the right, and to be perfectly honest, I do not care who was or who wasn't. But based upon what was presented, a not guilty verdict was the only logical conclusion to reach...This case should not have been filed, or lesser charges should have been brought....It's a sad day for everyone.

  1. Absolute agreement...the media is trying to spin this as a racial issue...According to Catholic moral theology, Zimmerman did not use what is referred to as "blameless defense," because he could have easily foreseen that he was placing himself in a situation in which he would be "forced" to use lethal force to repel an unjust agressor...HOWEVER; this point simply does not figure in this trial...the prosecution failed to make their case beyond a reasonable doubt; and "a man is innocent until proven guilty." Should a jury send a white man vs black or a black man vs white to jail to prevent racial repercussions? Certainly not - !

  2. No grammar nazi's here ;)...welcome to my blog Carl,

    Exactly, while we can't fully defend Zimmerman because he did place himself in that situation, it's as simple as the evidence presented did not prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

    A jury is supposed to be objective, they should not cave into an agenda just to satisfy the masses, and I'm glad that they didn't do so in this case.

    Thanks for commenting :)
