ABC Admits There Is Not Enough Evidence To Prosecute Zimmerman
Guest Post by Mara Zebest
In the first half of an audio of Rush Limbaugh’s July 3rd show (below), Rush plays a media montage that clearly demonstrate a Liberal media heavily vested in convicting Zimmerman—convicting an innocent man—just so a false race-baiting narrative can be stoked. Additionally, the media is not opposed to agitating Obama’s low-information voter base towards race riots.
Around the 2:50 minute marker, another media clip in which Liberal lawyer Mark Geragos is forced to admit that the prosecution never had a case. Mark Geragos is lamenting that the prosecutor is “throwing the case” and phoning it in. Listen to the full audio and Rush’s explanation:
Liberal media is forced to face reality again, and reluctantly admits that Zimmerman will not be found guilty. But even after conceding this point, Liberal media still avoids declaring Zimmerman’s story as credible, or that this case is a clear case of self-defense.
ABCNews reports the following with an obvious bias to deny the truth (noted in bold text) and continue clinging to the old liberal narrative. Personal comments in red text:
Now that the prosecution’s case against Zimmerman is in, as a legal matter, I just don’t see how a jury convicts him of second degree murder or even manslaughter in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
So what happened? How can an armed man who shot and killed an unarmed teen after being told by the police that he didn’t need to keep following him, likely be found not guilty of those crimes?
I certainly sympathize with the anger and frustration of the Martin family and doubt that a jury will accept the entirety of George Zimmerman’s account as credible. But based on the legal standard and evidence presented by prosecutors it is difficult to see how jurors find proof beyond a reasonable doubt that it wasn’t self defense. […]
For a moment, lets put aside the fact that many of the prosecution witnesses seemed to help Zimmerman in one way or another. [Translation: Let’s ignore that the prosecution witnesses support Zimmerman’s testimony]
As a legal matter, even if jurors find parts of Zimmerman’s story fishy, that is not enough to convict. Even if they believe that Zimmerman initiated the altercation, and that his injuries were relatively minor, that too would be insufficient evidence to convict. Prosecutors have to effectively disprove self defense beyond a reasonable doubt. […]
