It’s official: NOT GUILTY. I’m going to wait for a day or two before posting a sort of final article on this phase of the story. Why wait? We need to allow the dust to settle and wait to see how many of our fellow citizens decide this is a particularly appropriate time for some purchase price free shopping for consumer electronics and similar goods. We may be seeing quite a bit of the “conversation” about race so many have been hoping to have.
Keep in mind that this case is far from over. As I’ve mentioned, I’ll expect the Federal Department of Justice to announce their attack on Zimmerman this coming week. There will be a flurry of civil suits, filed not only by Zimmerman, but attempts by the Martin family, the scheme team and others. And there is the continuing perjury case against Shellie Zimmerman.
For those who have not been following that aspect of things. a good review is Update #12. That arrest began as a perjury trap, a crude and illegal means of trying to force George Zimmerman to take a plea deal to a lesser charge, but we know how that worked out. Now, the prosecution is stuck with another case in the same vein as that they filed against George. The affidavit contains no probable cause to prove the offense, however, Corey and her crew are not the type of people to learn valuable lessons or to admit error, and I expect them to do everything in their power to cut the pound of flesh they could not get from George out of Shellie. The difference in this case is that there is a single issue and relatively few facts and witnesses. Either Shellie spoke a lie, under oath, in a judicial proceeding, a lie she believed to be a lie as she spoke it, or she did not. And just like George’s case, there is no evidence. If it goes to trial, it can easily be completed within a day or two.
There remain the motions for sanctions that the defense filed against the prosecution in this case. You’ll recall, I’m sure, that Judge Nelson put off ruling on those matters until the case was finished. I expect her to pull a Hillaryesque “what difference does it make now” trick.
I am also hoping that there will be substantial charges filed against Corey and her idiot minions, as well as Judge Nelson, and will follow up on that possibility as well.
In the meantime, I recommend these articles:
(1) Today, Angela Corey fired Ben Kruidbos, the IT director that blew the whistle on di la Rionda’s withholding of evidence from Trayvon Martin’s cell phone. a PDF copy of the letter hand-delivered to Kruidbos may be found here.
(2) You’ll enjoy Ann Coulter’s take on the case, here.
(3) And if you’re not familiar with Mark Steyn–you should be–this is an excellent introduction.
