Robert Zimmerman Warns that Civil Suit Against His George Zimmerman ‘Might not be very Flattering’ for Trayvon Martin’s Family

 

Could a civil trial against George Zimmerman by the family of Trayvon Martin be more problematic that a benefit?

Robert Zimmerman states that a civil suit brought against his brother George Zimmerman, in a wrongful death trial, could be very troubling to the family of Trayvon Martin and could lead to very unpleasant facts that were never a part of the criminal trial. The rules of evidence are much different in a civil trial than a criminal one and much of the evidence that was excluded from the second degree criminal trial where a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty, could be entered into evidence in a civil trial. Sometimes it’s best not to dig up all the fact that took place because they might not be very pretty and may not follow the narrative of a made up story by the media and prosecution of Trayvon Martin. We do not like to talk ill of the dead and the death of Trayvon Martin is a tragedy no matter how you look at it, but in the end, we can all agree that he was most likely not the angel that the media made him out to be. Why drag his past through another trial and open his entire life to cross-examination? I realize those that have hijacked this case don’t care, but is that what  the family of Trayvon Martin really want to do? Is “justice” really bringing up your child’s past to go after George Zimmerman because you feel wronged by a jury decision where there was no evidence to prove murder or manslaughter? That is the question that the family of Trayvon Martin will have to ask themselves.

Robert Zimmerman, whose younger brother George was acquitted for his role in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, told The Huffington Post on Friday that a civil suit might lead to unpleasant facts coming to light about the Florida teenager’s family.

“A myriad of things that were off-limits in a criminal trial would come into play in a civil case,” Robert Zimmerman said in an email to the Post. “Specifically, things that might not be very flattering to Trayvon or his family.”

The report comes one day after a member of the six-woman jury that acquitted George Zimmerman on second-degree murder charges told ABC News that the former neighborhood watch captain “got away with murder,” but that there was not enough evidence to find him guilty on July 13.

It could open a Pandora’s box, namely the Trayvon Martin’s cell phone that was not allowed during the criminal trial. It had been my personal contention that had a jury been able to have seen previous texts of Trayvon Martin discussing fighting and knowing that Trayvon Martin had a history of fighting, getting into trouble in school, suspension, and the rest … the jury would have come back even quicker with a not guilty verdict. This was evidence that the Zimmerman defense team said was withheld from them by the prosecution. The state IT director Ben Kruidbos was fired because of his whistle-blowing of the incident.

Another difficulty in filing a civil case in Florida is Florida’s stand your ground law. The statute provides criminal and civil immunity to anyone who uses deadly force in a situation in which one has a reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily injury.

Imagine if much of the evidence from Bill Whittle & ‘Afterburner’ … The Wretched Lynching of George Zimmerman … The MSM Participated in Criminal Fraud or Criminal Negligence was allowed to come into a civil trial?

      Leave this man alone. He was found not guilty. End of story its not about race but if history has proven anything its when the blacks don’t get their way they cry race…. stereotypical…maybe….but you make the stereotypes what they are. Truth hurts.

      Zimmerman lawyer to move ‘asap’ against NBC News
      Published: July 14 at 12:15 pm

      Last night’s not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial will enable the neighborhood-watch volunteer to resume his case against NBC News for the mis-editing of his widely distributed call to police. Back in December, Zimmerman sued NBC Universal Media for defamation over the botched editing, which depicted him as a hardened racial profiler.

      Here’s how NBC News, in a March 27, 2012, broadcast of the “Today” show, abridged the tape of Zimmerman’s comments to a police dispatcher on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012:

      Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

      The full tape went like this:

      Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

      Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

      Zimmerman: He looks black.

      If it is possible to bring a wrongful death case against George Zimmerman, the Florida prosecutors of the criminal case should be shaking in their shoes. This will out them and make them libel for criminal charges.

      Such a case could deliver the information to the public that the Florida Criminal Justice system needs a good house cleaning.

      I say let the Scheme Team bring the suit, they will be handed their heads the same way they were in the trial.

      At the same time Zimmerman can be drilling down into all the members of the Scheme Team looking for the origin of defamatory claims made in media.

      One interesting thing to look into will be can any of the subsequent threats made against Zimmerman, his family and his lawyers be traced back to the Scheme Team?

      I see I disagree with you but that is okay. The Zimmerman’s may not want to be outed either. Perjury and the claims from a cousin that George molested her. Works both ways. Peace

      SM: Not sure how that would be a part of the civil trial. Back ground has to do something with what happened and they would only allow going back so far otherwise would be prejudicial. Thats just the legal process, not my opinion.

      Why not get on board with Marissa Alexander. Oh okay she doesn’t look like President Obama’s son. Also, if it does come to light then the photos of a 12 year old kid would not be allowed much less the photo they keep forcing down our throats of him in his hoodie looking innocent…I saw the un-photo-shopped pictures, and that one that is above is very nice to his rl picture:(

      ABC network also edited the tape….making George sound like a murder by a witness, which apparently she only repeated a quote. True or not true?

      Trayvon’s parents are trash!!!! Their parenting skills are worthless. A kid being suspended from the school the first time was enough but 3 times suspended. They along with the help they initiated from sharpton and jackson has caused monumental havoc.

      The good black people need to do something about the black trash!!!!

      Image released by ABC shows host Robin Roberts with juror B29 from George Zimmerman trial and attorney David Chico on Good Morning America in New York on 07-25-2013.

      ABC news is being accused of deceptively editing some of the comments made by juror B29, the non-white juror in the trial.

      These allegations come not from a conservative news source, but rather from Slate.com

      The things that are being said and done to George Zimmerman are the biggest of all sins.

      A wrongful death civil suit could possibly uncover the source of how the criminal charges came about.

      There is no actual proof at this time, but it appears that Al Sharpton had a large hand in the process that eventually included the Community Resource Services group of the DOJ. There were expense reports of the CRS uncovered that point to their efforts in making a trip to Sanford to organize the marches.
