This is the best timeline.
Trayvon Martin’s parents got rich off of the death of their horrible criminal son, and they should have to pay the man who their little brat attacked – who has had his name dragged through the mud for years after he was wrongly accused of “murdering” that vicious ape.
Former Florida volunteer community watchman George Zimmerman, whose 2012 killing of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin drew attention across the United States, sued Martin’s family and lawyers on Wednesday, saying they used a fake witness against him.
Zimmerman is seeking at least $100 million in damages from Martin’s parents, state prosecutors and two women, who are accused in a Polk County, Florida, lawsuit of helping provide false statements to investigators and during the trial, according to court papers.
On Feb. 26, 2012, Zimmerman, who was then a neighborhood watch captain in a gated community in Sanford, Florida, fatally shot Martin after the teen’s trip to a convenience store to buy snacks. The incident helped spark the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Zimmerman was arrested and charged. During the 2013 trial, prosecutors argued Zimmerman profiled, pursued and confronted the black youth. Zimmerman claimed he shot Martin in self defense and was found not guilty by a jury.
This reporting from Reuters is really bullshit.
He was “found not guilty” because he wasn’t guilty – that is the way the justice system works in America.
The language used here basically implies that he was guilty and there was some kind of miscarriage of justice.
They don’t even mention the fact that he was attacked and Martin was repeatedly slamming his head against the concrete when he was shot.
George also had a broken nose.
Using the “unarmed teen” trope/canard in 2019 almost comes across as parody.
Martin had two big black arms with two big black hands on the ends of them that he was using to slam poor George’s head against the concrete.
The lawsuit accuses Martin’s parents and the family’s attorney Benjamin Crump of orchestrating a campaign to force Brittany Diamond Eugene, 16, who was reportedly Martin’s girlfriend, to make a recorded statement that implicated Zimmerman as the aggressor in the altercation with Martin.
Eugene was on the phone with Martin moments before the altercation with Zimmerman, the suit said.
The lawsuit also says that Eugene’s half-sister Rachel Jeantel pretended to be Eugene when she was interviewed by prosecutors and provided false statements to incriminate Zimmerman based on coaching from others in court during his trial.
She definitely appeared to be trying to remember her coaching when she testified.
That fat sheboon’s testimony was one of the funniest things of the decade though, I’ll tell you what.
I hope George wins, of course.
But I doubt he will.
In the wake of the election of Trump and of the events in Charlottesville, it is basically impossible for anyone who is anything other than a paragon of political correctness to win any kind of lawsuit in America.
The American courts are now no more legitimate than a parody of the Soviet court system.
Suing Trayvon’s parents really is hilarious though.
