Zimmerman Defense Team Responds to Obama


LINK

quote:

To focus on this one line misses the nuances of the President’s message,” reads the statement which was posted at the defense team’s website GZLegalcase.com.

Earlier Friday, Robert Zimmerman Jr., George Zimmerman’s brother told The Daily Caller that President Obama’s remarks reinforced the “mythology surrounding the case.” The President did not acknowledge the evidence supporting Zimmerman’s claim that Martin attacked him.

“While we acknowledge and understand the racial context of this case,” the defense’s statement continues, “we challenge people to look closely and dispassionately at the facts.”

“We believe those who look at the facts of the case without prejudice will see that it is a clear case of self-defense, and we are certain that those who take a closer look at the kind of person George Zimmerman is,” reads the statement.

Zimmerman Jr. also recalled to TheDC earlier Friday that his brother has helped mentor two African American children whose father is serving a life sentence in prison.

The defense team applauds Obama’s courage in discussing the Zimmerman verdict in the statement, but adds, “we would like to stress that the verdict was reached fairly and justly and that it reflects the letter of the law and represents the law’s proper application to the facts.”

“We hope that the President was not suggesting that this case fits a pattern of racial disparity, because we strongly contend that it does not,” they caution, citing the Department of Justice’s investigation against Zimmerman for possible hate crimes in the shooting death of Martin.

“Before you judge George Zimmerman or disparage the verdict of the citizen jury, understand the facts in full,” the statement reads. “Agree not to listen to just what meets your predisposition, but to accept what exists.”

Well said, but like spitting in the wind, it won't reach it's target.

Thanks for posting. I'm glad that GZ's attorneys are responding to the race-baiting nonsense that we are going to have to put up with from Obama and the rest of FedGov concerning this case.

Very well written.
John Adams who defended the British soldiers in the Boston massacre would be proud.

If GW had spoke out and fought the lies like this bunch...we probably wouldn't be in this mess now. That civility and respect for the office bs don't cut it...when the nation is at stake.

You didn't see OJ's legal defense team say "look at the facts" over and over again like GZ'a defense team does. I wonder why that is......

I prefer the more direct approach. If you look up prejudice in wikipedia it should show his pic.

Zimmerman would have better off if the Sanford Police department had charged him the night of the shooting. If that had happened, no one would know his name today.

That's a silly comment. A mixed jury of 12 looked at the evidence and it only took them two hours to find O.J. not guilty, not the 16 hours that it took the all-White jury in the Zimmerman trial.

Thought it was five whites and one Hispanic ........ But I wouldn't expect you to pay any more attention to that than you did any other facts in the case

With OJ's defense team the prosocuters didnt have a chance. They used the DNA evidence, contaminated samples and sloppy police work to beat the jury into submission. They muddied the waters enough to get him off.

You're missing the point.

They didn't NEED to keep repeating their case over and over again even after the acquittal due to public scrutiny.

1: you didn't have the president or the DA come out and call the defendant a murderer before the trial and even AFTER the acquittal as far as Angela Corey thinks
2:you didn't see any white people protest the not guilty verdict.
3: they were both found not guilty but only one has to fear for his life and that's pretty sad.

It was actually 5 white and one black-Hispanic who moved from Chicago to get away from all the crimes and murders (white on black I'm sure)

Was he not entitled to a jury of his peers?

You feral cocksuckers (please don't take that personal, it's not meant to be...but you do suck violently) want to constantly label George as white, so why do you keep whining and crying about the makeup of his jury??
