Now that the paucity of the evidence for the widely touted claim that George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin is out and widely analyzed, the radical left is retreating to their prepared, go-to, defensive position: The whole plan all along in the Zimmerman indictment was to deliberately throw the investigation and by doing so cause black people to riot, reinforcing the position of the Republican Party of Florida, and, presumably, Mittens as well.
A leftist law blog posted an examination of the Zimmerman Affidavit in support of probable cause that Murder in the 2nd occured and the reaction of leftist readers was that it was all a conspiracy to manipulate blacks into rioting. The article will not be addressed other than it is in agreement with most in that the affidavit was junk law and junk law enforcement. The comments are interesting though for their conspiracy theories and obviously racist attitude about blacks; that blacks so lack self-control they will riot at the drop of a hat.

i found it very interesting to follow the analysis of a defense lawyer thru a charge para by para.
my suspicion is and has been that any prosecution of zimmerman will have been set up to fail due to the “realities” of a grotesqely right-wing political establishment in florida.
see this article, for example:

Is the repug-appoited attorney setting the case up for a fail? Do the repugs want a “Not Guilty” verdict, which could lead to riots the way the Rodney King verdict did? Repugs seem to really, really love it when minorities riot or even speak in an angry way. It reassures the bigots that they’re correct in their bigotry. And it makes for great Live TV.

I think the case of Trayvon Martin is about much more than just racial prejudice.
It is resonating with Americans of all stripes because clearly some are above the law while most of us ordinary folks are not – and we’re stuck paying the taxes too. Zimmerman was above, and Martin below – and that was further sanctioned by the cops who essentially backed Zimmerman.
You know you are winning an argument with a leftist when they bring out the racism meme so early and so desperately.
Stay tuned for riots. The left wants and expects them. All part of the conspiracy by the Stupid Party. LOL. Why then did McCain leave Jeremiah Wright out of the campaign?
