Making the rounds today is this graphic of where Stand Your Ground or self defense laws exist and where they refer to them as Kill at Will states.What’s the old saying? I’d rather be judged by 12 (in this case 6) than carried by six? These people won’t be happy until all victims refuse to fight back.
For those of you who didn’t bother to watch or read about the trial and its aftermath except to receive as gospel the Rev Al’s talking points about it, both the chief prosecutor and lead attorney for the state said definitively that self defense laws did NOT make it harder to try George Zimmerman AND that they haven’t changed much over the years. See my post on that aspect of the case here.
The Obama Justice Department paid staffers to go to Florida to gin up rallies against defendant George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin.
How do we know this? Because they said so.
Documents obtained by Freedom of Information requests show Main Justice sent staffers to Florida to organize rallies against Zimmerman. Look at some of the expenditures Judicial Watch obtained:
March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.
*March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”
* Correction to bulleted point number three: “to provide interregional support for protest deployment in Florida.” Correction required due to unintentional copywriting error.
March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”
April 3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.”
April 11 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African American male.”
I didn’t know the Justice Department had event planners ready to deploy.
Imagine if the Justice Department under the auspices of the Obama White House sent someone to destroy you.
