We haven't said a whole lot here about the circus known as the "Martin/Zimmerman" trial down in Sanford, Florida; and if by some chance you don't know what we are talking about here then count yourself lucky (especially lucky you didn't get made an honorary citizen of Sanford, Florida and wind up dragooned into jury duty).
For the rest of you, we are sure you have heard all the people on the talk shows getting all worked up and trying to convict Zimmerman and paint Martin as a saint. Basically these folks all say the same damn thing, which consists of the following series of statements; although not necessarily in the order presented:
"To my way of thinking, Zimmerman is guilty". Really? Well. tough shit. The standard of proof is "beyond a reasonable doubt"; not "to (your) way of thinking". Who the fuck are you, anyway? and who the fuck do you think you are?
"But the police ordered him to stay in his truck, and he got out. Why didn't he obey the cops?" Well, Poindexter, for one thing the 911 dispatcher (not a cop) told Zimmerman that they did not need for Zimmrman to follow Martin around. He was never ordered to do one damn thing. And the reason Zimmerman said he got out oif the truck was to check the street address he was at to inform the cops as to where things were taking place. According to Zimmerman, he was walking back to his truck when Martin - instead of just continuing on his way - "japped" Zimmerman and sucker-punched him to the ground.
"But that was Treyvon's voice screaming on that 911 tape!" Maybe it was (but it wasn't; but for the sake of argument). And maybe he was mocking Zimmerman sadistically. Or maybe it was some horrified bystander screaming for help; someone who has seen what happens to people who get involved in this mess and who is determined never to come forward.
We will save time, space, bandwidth and sanity by cutting to the chase. After all these arguments have been shot down, Treyvon Martin's apologists then resort to using the race-card and name-calling, saying anyone who doesn't agree that Zimmerman murdered Martin in cold blood and thinks Martin is less than the Blessed Baby who was born, born, born in Bethlehem is a racist. Here at the Alexandria Daily Poop, we would like to invite all you idiots using this "race card" bullshit to have a nice, frosty tall glass of SHUT THE FUCK UP, on us.
We are sick of hearing this crap. This is why we have mostly ignored this trial, but it has gotten to be too much to bear without doing a post (and besides, our readers rather expected one, so here you go).
Now in the (extremely likely) event that Zimmerman is cleared of all charges, we are prepared for the riots that may follow. We have been in contact with a number of people who are similarly prepared to deal with such a situation. Try Googling "What will you do if there are riots over Zimmerman/Martin" before you go out raising hell. Then think again, and let the legal system take its course. That's all we have to say about it. But a word to the wise is wasted on a dumbass. Peace out.
