The White Man's Scapegoat: Chad Copley the New Zimmerman?
The verdict was announced amid tears and jeers! I for one and glad that justice was served. All of society may disagree with me, but I feel that there was enough evidence to convince me that Zimmerman was not a murderer. He acted in self-defense and unfortunately, Trayvon Martin lost his life in a struggle with this man.
Do I think it was wrong to kill him? Yes. I do not believe Trayvon Martin deserved to die, but that does not mean that society can form a lynch-mob to destroy the person it feels is wrong. Zimmerman has proven that he is a danger to himself anyway. Justice has a way of catching up with people.
Let The Court Decide And It Has
In the beginning of all of this uproar of a trial I wrote:
All of the arguing and fighting should be over now. Let the courts handle this situation right.
I do not see this occurring. I hope it does. Zimmerman has been the subject of a national witch hunt only surpassed by the Salem Witch Trials. Though this same crime and circumstance happened just a few days ago with David Adkins as the victim, Zimmerman is the shooter of choice for the Black Leaders to crucify. The Black Movement is not under the duress it was once under. It can now cherry-pick cases that provide the exposure it needs.
Zimmerman, I pray for you my fellow American. I doubt you will get a fair trial of a jury of your peers.
I am glad that I was incorrect. I am glad that six jurists put the facts to work and discovered beyond doubt that Zimmerman did not murder that young man. The public at large will never leave this man alone. His actions created another movement, BLM!
You have received the trial you protested about having and he is now free. Will you leave him alone America? HELL NO has been the answer!
You have received the trial you protested about having and he is now free. Will you leave him alone America? HELL NO, has been the answer! The Black Live Matter Network exists because of Zimmerman's Actions!
Life For ZImmerman
What is the quality of life for this man now that his face has been posted on every major network all around the world in many languages? Where will he work that will not immediately have Zimmerman haters protesting or insulting or boycotting for the continuing celebrity from his part in the Black Lives Matter Network?
What stores can he enter without being recognized? His life is ruined unless he can get a good movie or book deal. It will be the only way to sustain himself for a while without some misguided person trying to kill him for revenge! He is a mess socially from what I have read and heard of him in the news.
Now is the time for the civil suits against the people who maligned him in public. Now is the time to sue the pants off of the Panther organization for putting out a vigilante call for his capture and posting a reward!
A person who committed a similar crime, who is actually White, this time, is called George Zimmerman 2.0. On August 7, 2016, Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas was fatally shot by Chad Copley, a white homeowner. Unlike George, Copley was not being attacked. He was being a cowboy with an ax to grind. He used a gun to grind it.
Zimmerman, a man set free for self-defense is the poster child for crimes against Black teen males now? Society is an unforgiving entity, even when it is in the wrong!
Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas
Kouren's crime was to be a Black person who allegedly had a gun according to Copley and committed acts of crime with his other Hoodlums. Copley decided to take matters into his own hands to stop the hoodlum-dom when he called 911 to report that he was about to confront a group of people out at 1 am Sunday morning causing a ruckus.
After ending his first call, Copley called again to report he had fired a warning shot into the group. Kouren was the victim of Copley's bullet. Copley, exasperated at the 911 operator said that there were a bunch of Black males outside of his house waving weapons and hurling expletives, and urged them to send officers. He ended the call.
My gut feeling is that his man is a trouble maker who took things too far. Now a person is dead, and he, Copley faces the death penalty. Will that be enough to assuage societal fears for Black males? You be the judge.
Thomas on the Left - Copley on the Right
Will a Conviction of Chad Copley with the Death Penalty sentence change the societal opinions like those expressed by the group Black Lives Matter to think they have been heard?
Looking Back : November 2012
Circuit Court Judge Debra Nelson will allow limited information about Trayvon Martins violent past into evidence for the defense is support of Zimmerman in this Second Degree Murder Case. Sources suggest that Trayvon Martin was involved in Mixed Martial Arts fighting and therefore warranted George Zimmerman to kill him by shooting to save his own life.
The parents of Trayvon Martin, Tracy Martin, the father and Sybrina Fulton, the mother, disagree with the releasing of Trayvon's school recorded because within those files contain evidence that Trayvon was a violent youth. The defense team hopes this limited allowance by Judge Nelson will provide some headway in the Zimmerman defense. Zimmerman is released on bail in an undisclosed location.
That's the update. Hopefully, there will be a fair resolution for all involve in this lasting tragedy for Zimmerman and Martin family members.
Look Back : Zimmerman Ordered Back To Jail
After being set free for a short period of time, the judge orders George Zimmerman back to jail because he claims that the man was dishonest about his financial status. Apparently, the court thought that Mr. and Mrs. Zimmerman was strapped for cash.
Since they have over $100,000.00 in donations, now the court wants him back and wants an explanation. I am somewhat concerned about the ethical nature of setting bonds in such a manner. Since I do not know that much about such systems, I will forbear writing.
With as much press as the Zimmerman family is getting I would assume that they owned that famous pig or a spider named Charlotte. The judge seems to want a piece of the action in my opinion. The only thing is that the Zimmerman-Martin train has lost its social appeal. The man has been jailed and will have a trial. No more protests!
