Former President Jimmy Carter Says the George Zimmerman Jury Got the Verdict Right in the Murder Trial and Death of Trayvon Martin


And now for something completely different, Jimmy Carter says Zimmerman jury got the verdict right.

As resorted at The Politico, former President Jimmy Carter said in an interview on Atlanta news channel WXIA that the jury in the George Zimmerman murder trail got the verdict right. Well this is not going to go over well with the LEFT, Democrat politicians, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder is seeking to go after Civil Rights charges against Zimmerman as Holder fans the flames when there is no evidence that Zimmerman was ever a racist. Oh, and add to it those marching and rioting in the streets, those attacking others in revenge for the verdict and the prosecutors in Florida who lost and still have sour grapes. I have to give Carter some credit on this one. He is actually being rather responsible in his comments and is basing his comments on the law, not emotion. With the insanity, hateful comments and threats that have come from those opposing the verdict, it’s only a matter of time before Carter is referred to as a “creepy ass cracker”.

“I think the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented, because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman that he was not at all defending himself, and so forth,” Carter told Atlanta news channel WXIA. “It’s not a moral question, it’s a legal question and the American law requires that the jury listens to the evidence presented.”

Carter thinks America is moving forward and making progress. I sue hope so.

      This shows that the Democrat’s of the past had respect for the law. He is one of a rare bread of Dem in this day and age.

      This is hugely disappointing, Mr. Carter.

      The FACTS of this case are: Zimmerman approached a young man he profiled because of the color of his skin and the clothing he was wearing. He did NOT back off when the cops told him to leave the kid alone, but instead approached and, obviously, was aggressive and confrontational enough that Trayvon Martin felt he had to defend HIMSELF. Then Zimmerman killed him.

      Unlike you evidently, I firmly believe that Trayvon had every right to defend himself against a stranger in street clothes approaching him in a place he had every right to be and harassing him to the point of physical altercation. Do you really believe, Mr. Carter, that Trayvon did NOT have the right to defend himself? That only Zimmerman had that right? And to the DEATH?

      I guess we should just enact laws that tell Black men how to dress and comport themselves in public so vigilantes like Zimmerman won’t kill them. Otherwise, African AMERICAN men are just asking for it, right?

      Had ZIMMERMAN done as ordered by the police, Trayvon would be alive today. There’s one FACT. Had Zimmerman not antagonized and intimidated the kid in the first place, Trayvon would be alive today. That’s another fact. And, DARE I say it, until we own up to the deeply ingrained racism in this country, respected public figures such as you are going to continue to say, “It wasn’t a racistact” and “I’m not a racist.”

      Shame, shame SHAME on you not only for taking this position, but also in making it public. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in you for this.
      SM: Although I do not agree with your version of the facts, they are your opinion. I do respect you for putting forth a comment that was well reasoned and provided your point of view without name calling. Thank you. I agree there is racism in the country still, honestly, there is no way to ever get rid of it b100%, however, this case was not racism.

      Thank you for your comments.

      The facts of this case are: Zimmerman did not profile him….the color of his skin and the clothing he was wearing had nothing to do with the fact that Travyon looked suspicious, appeared to be on drugs, which he was, walking very slowly in the rain and stopping in front of a home that had been burgularized, a neighborhood watchman would look for things that looked suspicious. Zimmerman returned to his vehicle after he got the name of intersecting street that the dispatcher asked him, for which he walked to get. He wasn’t following Travyon because he was no longer in sight, he was hiding in the bushes, instead of going home he then came up behind Zimmerman and physically attacked him.

      You cannot distort facts or be untruthful to appease your wannabe thinking. This was not racism on Zimmerman’s part.

      Travyon’s parents said they were shocked when they heard the verdict, Oh com’on, you knew the criminal things he was involved in….what is shocking, is the fact that you never even reported him missing after two days…the police had to seek you out and find out who you were.
