Over at Renew America , Lloyd Marcus wrote an opinion piece titled, "What About Justice For Zimmerman" in which he mulls over the Trayvon Martin case and what it may mean for Zimmerman. Here is an excerpt from the article:
"Most Americans desire a fair and just outcome of this tragedy. But, Lord help us if the evidence proves Zimmerman to be innocent. If Zimmerman is ruled not-guilty and allowed to walk, I foresee Rodney King-type riots in the streets. Thus, is Zimmerman's fate already sealed? Will a jury decide Zimmerman must be declared guilty of something?"
Leading the way and trying to ensure a desirous outcome of the trial in their favor, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the high priests of black American justice, have already decided that Zimmerman has to be found guilty or they insinuate that there will be catastrophic consequences in the already, tenuous relationship between black and white Americans. In short, Jackson and Sharpton have paraphrased the high priest Caiaphas, when he sat in the counsel of the Pharisees and chief priests to determine what to do with Jesus and said,
" 49... Ye know nothing at all,
50Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
There is a dangerous and ugly similarity between Jesus' trial and Zimmerman's. Our Lord's trial was a farce and Zimmerman's "pre-trial" trial seems to be leading in the same direction through the efforts of the so-called Christian reverends Jackson and Sharpton, the New Black Panthers and the news media.
Already, a steady stream of witness's have been trotted out trying to find Zimmerman guilty without benefit of a trial, specifically the news media. The media in Zimmerman's case have doctored photos and the audio of the 911 call trying to portray Zimmerman as a dangerous, racist, stalker, out looking for trouble and tried to hide the photos of injuries that Zimmerman claimed to have been caused by an attack by Trayvon Martin. The media has tried to sway public opinion by stacking the deck against Zimmerman with lies and falsehoods, but as in the trial of Jesus, the false witnesses concocted by the Pharisees and chief priests could not agree in their testimony and contradicted each other. The ancient witnesses lied in their testimony against Jesus, as today's media against Zimmerman.
Black activists have cried out angrily for weeks that Zimmerman should be arrested and not be free as they placed a price on Zimmerman's head with threats of death should he be found by the Panthers or those seeking justice for Martin. Even when Zimmerman was arrested, charged and made bail, it was not enough to satisfy those wanting their "pound of flesh". They want Zimmerman crucified no matter what happens in the trial. This is no different than when Pontius Pilate arrested and scourged Jesus, then presented his bloody form to the Pharisees in the praetorium with his infamous "Ecce Homo". The cries of "Crucify him!" came from the unsatisfied crowd who wanted their own pound of flesh. Pilate tried to set him free because he found no guilt in him but instead, he sentenced Jesus to death in order to prevent rioting.
I have no idea if Zimmerman is guilty and it is not my place to say. I do not have all the truthful information of what happened, so I have to presume him innocent as we all should, but I'm afraid presumed innocence is of no concern to Jackson, Sharpton and their ilk. My real fear is that a fair trial cannot happen. When the media declares Zimmerman as a "white hispanic", it would seem to seal his fate much as Jesus replying to Caiaphas, "I AM".
Lloyd Marcus' article bears a lot of truth when he asks whether the jury will have to declare Zimmerman guilty of something to avoid violence in the streets. Jesse and Al will also be on trial right along side of Zimmerman if their race baiting puts fear in the jury and influences their verdict. I do not envy the jury that will be put in place at Zimmerman's trial. They have been given the role of Pilate and will have to bear the consequences of their verdict. Will they declare Zimmerman guilty out of fear of Jesse's and Al's threats despite any reservations they may have of his guilt? I truly hope not. But you can be sure of what they will be thinking during this upcoming trial: whether it is better for one man to be destroyed than a nation.
