The Names of the Six Jurors who Acquitted George Zimmerman in the Death of Trayvon Martin Made Public

The six jurors in the George Zimmerman murder case better change their phone numbers to unlisted.

As reported in the Orlando Sentinel, the names of the six member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order. RUT-ROH, these folks are in for a world of unwanted phone calls and possible home visits. Hopefully, the order will be stayed so that the individuals could prepare for this.

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors’ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21.

Zimmerman’s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. The judge set no timeline then, but noted in her new order they have been withheld more than eight months.

Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.

The Left & Blacks Become Unhinged Over Lakers Kobe Bryant’s Comments on Trayvon Martin Case … He Doesn’t Support Defending Someone Just Because They are Black

The NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant is about to feel the wrath of what happens when you do not go along with the “black/left” company line …

In an interview with The New Yorker, Kobe Bryant discussed his reaction to when members of the Miami Heat wore “hoodies” in Trayvon Martin’s memory saying he admitted he’s not comfortable with the idea of being compelled to defend someone just because they’re black. Trayvon Martin was the black teen who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. After a long, divisive and contentious trial, Zimmerman was found “not guilty” of murder. Although the part of the interview that discusses the Trayvon Martin passages are only available to subscribers, the money lines were reprinted at The Blaze and Mediaite.

Discussing the divisive Trayvon Martin case in an interview with The New Yorker, NBA star Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t support defending someone just because they are black.

He appeared to be referring to the aftermath of the shooting death of Martin. Many people and political commentators seemingly rushed to assume George Zimmerman was guilty of murder before a trial ever occurred. One of the topics discussed was how members of the Miami Heat wore hoodies in Martin’s memory two years ago.

“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American. That argument doesn’t make any sense to me,” Bryant said. “So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”

Who knew Kobe Bryant was a racist? [sarcasm intended].

And the Left & Blacks expressed their outrage on Twitter for one black man’s opinion that color should not be the issue, the facts should. Hmm, you mean support for Trayvon was not racial solidarity, Really? It was a tragic set of events where two people should have never crossed paths, but everything about the George Zimmerman – Trayvon martin case was racial, down the the media doctoring 911 tapes and Zimmerman being referred to as a “white” Hispanic. And there is nothing racial when  the Revs. Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson are on the scene. Add the NBPP as well putting a bounty on Zimmerman’s head. Yup, no racial solidarity before a JURY SPOKE WHAT-SO-EVER.

I guess if Barack Obama had a son, it would not be Kobe Bryant.

Good Grief … Celebrity Boxing Match Set Between George Zimmerman and Rapper DMX (Earl Simmons)

Well this hardly promises to be like the “Rumble in the Jungle”.

I can see David Buffer providing the pre-fight intro … LET’S GET READY TO STUMBLE!!!!

TMZ is reporting that the a boxing match is on between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX. Yes, that same George Zimmerman. It would appear that Zimmerman and DMX are going to have a 3 round boxing match. Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman says that there were 15,000 applicants who wanted to take ob George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was found “not guilty” in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  Really, DMX? Obviously the rapper wants to beat the hell out of Zimmerman, he has made that pretty obvious by his words below. But wouldn’t such a match have been better had Zimmerman been in the ring with Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton? Now that’s a match I would be willing to pay for!

Oh by the way, celebrity boxing match. George Zimmerman is a celebrity, really?

VIDEO – CNN

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicants … all of whom wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him.

But no one wanted to beat Zimmerman’s ass more than DMX.

As we first reported, DMX promised to massacre Zimmerman in the ring if he got the chance. To be exact, he said, “I am going to beat the living f**k out him I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up.” He then said he’d literally piss on George’s face.

George Zimmerman better hope Obamacare covers the injuries he is about to get in this beat down.

On a serious note, George … GO AWAY!!!

Oh wait, check this comment out from Al Sharpton regarding the event. Um, this coming from the man who made himself of celebrity and hero from the false rape accusation of of a police officer in the Tawana Brawley case.

We must be very careful not to glorify or in any way sidestep the implications of making someone whose only claim to fame was killing an unarmed, young man named Trayvon Martin into a cultural celebrity or hero,” Sharpton said.

Attorney for Photographer Rick Wilson Says George Zimmerman Stole Cleints Work to Make Painting of State Attorney Angela Corey (Copyright Violation)

RUT-ROH, Looks like George Zimmerman may be in trouble again.

According to Jacksonville attorney John Phillips, who represents photographer Rick Wilson, George Zimmerman committed a copyright violation of his clients photo of State Attorney Angela Corey. The AP owns the rights to the photo.  AP has sent George Zimmerman a cease-and-desist letter for the use of this photo. AP spokesman Paul Colford stated said that Zimmerman, “clearly directly copied an AP photo to create his painting of Florida State Attorney. Zimmerman planned on selling this paining on line as he did his previous one did on eBay, with a winning bid of $100,099.99.

The new painting is an image of Corey gesturing with her finger and thumb together, under the words “I have this much respect for the American judicial system.” The painting is titled “Angie,” Robert Zimmerman Jr. tweeted Wednesday.

Following the trial,Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz said George Zimmerman special prosecutor Angela Corey should be disbarred and her conduct bordered on criminal conduct. Zimmerman’s defense attorneys did not have very many kind words for the prosecution either. Looks like Zimmerman wanted to get even with a completely unflattering painting.

( Associated Press, Twitter.com/rzimmermanjr / January 24, 2014 )

From The Orlando Sentinel:

A photographer and news agency whose picture of State Attorney Angela Corey appears to be the basis for George Zimmerman’s latest painting are calling the artwork a clear copyright violation.

Jacksonville attorney John Phillips, who represents photographer Rick Wilson, told the Orlando Sentinel on Friday that Zimmerman should expect legal action if he continues to use the photo.

“You just can’t do that,” Phillips said. “You just can’t take somebody else’s work and make it your own.”

Wilson said he took the photograph as a freelancer for The Associated Press, and he said AP owns its copyright.

Zimmerman’s use of his photo for profit “to me crosses a line,” Wilson said. “He’s trying to profit and pass off, basically, a photograph as his own original artwork.”

In a statement Friday, AP spokesman Paul Colford confirmed the news network has sent Zimmerman a cease-and-desist letter.

Zimmerman “clearly directly copied an AP photo to create his painting of Florida State Attorney Angela Corey,” Colford said.

$100,000 for a Zimmerman paint by the numbers painting, ARE YOU SERIOUS? That might be criminal as well.

“Sacrilege” and an “Abomination” … Claremont United Methodist Church in California Replaces Baby Jesus in Nativity Scene with Bloody, Hooded Trayvon Martin (VIDEO)

ARE YOU KIDDING ME … JUST HOW FRIGGIN OFFENSIVE COULD THESE PEOPLE POSSIBLY BE?

The Claremont United Methodist Church, about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, California, and John Zachary, the individual behind the “artistic interpretation,”  has managed to infuriate many with their depiction of the Nativity scene this Christmas season by replacing the baby Jesus with Trayvon Martin. Yup … because some how I get the two of them confused all off the time. I just have two words, “Sacrilege” and an “Abomination”!!! All in the name of “artistic interpretation” these fools have managed to desecrate the Birth of Christ by replacing the innocence of the Baby Jesus, the son of God, Our Savior with the hoody-wearing, Trayvon Martin, slumped over, shot in the chest with blood pouring out on to the ground. UNREAL. Wow, because some how Trayvon Martin is supposed to symbolize the innocence of a child, really? Who knew the drug using, pot smoking, middle finger displaying, gun carrying, school skipping, gangsta fightin’ thug was so innocent. Oh that’s right, those pics were not immiscible.

One does not even know where to begin here. In the name of “social justice” they would do such sacrilege. But such things are perfectly okay, because while defaming the birth of Christ, there is a liberal message. You can poke others in the eye, but then cry foul when there is an overwhelming negative response. In the past,  Zachary has depicted Mary and Joseph as a modern-day homeless couple; as Mexicans stopped by the U.S.-Mexico border fence; as Iraq War refugees; and in 2010, just Mary by herself, as a black woman in prison with her baby. What, you mean that they have not portrayed Mary and Joseph as Michelle and Barack Obama? Or is that next year?

On the lawn of a Claremont church, just like at many churches at this time of year, cutouts of wise men on camelback head toward a makeshift stable, a meager wooden structure where Mary and Joseph have huddled inside.

But instead of an infant Jesus cradled in his mother’s arms, the Nativity at Claremont United Methodist Church — the creation of congregant and artist John Zachary — features a depiction of Trayvon Martin slumped over in his hoodie, a pool of his blood spreading over a bed of straw.

For several years, Zachary has brought his artistic interpretations of the Nativity — as well as the occasional controversy — to the church, as he used a scene that traditionally conveys themes of joy and innocence to spread messages of social justice. Over the last few years, his installations have touched on homelessness, poverty and acceptance of gay families.

He decided over the summer that this year’s scene would include the Florida teenager whose shooting death captured the nation’s attention. Zachary said he wanted to draw a parallel between rampant gun violence and the dark time in which Jesus was born.

“He was, in my view, an innocent child like the innocent children killed by King Herod,” Zachary, 57, said of Martin. “I think the Nativity has to be relevant to our time. I think Jesus is a symbol of hope and I think he has to be seen in today’s context.”

Want to get even more outraged, watch the VIDEO below of John Zachary attempted to explain his twisted and deranged logic of his interpretation meant to shock people. Sorry, but this is not supposed to be thought provoking, it is just meant to be PROVOKING! Just curious, why is innocent gun violence depicted as Trayvon Martin? If one is going to go this route, wouldn’t true innocent lives lost at the hands of gun violence be the 20 children that were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School?

In the VIDEO below check out the shirt that John Zachary is wearing … Islam convert Mohammed Ali, hmm, I think some one just lost a bit of credibility.

Zachary,57, told media he added the slain teenager’s likeness this year to show the parallel between rampant gun violence and the dark time Jesus was born in.

“He was, in my view, an innocent child like the innocent children killed by King Herod,” Zachary told the Los Angeles Times. “I think the Nativity has to be relevant to our time. I think Jesus is a symbol of hope and I think he has to be seen in today’s context.”

Check Out their Facebook page with comments of individuals who are outraged and disgusted. But what else should we expect from a Hollywood production designer? Next year I guess the Baby Jesus will be replaced with Mohammed. I can’t wait until 2016 when Mary and Joseph will be Bill and Hillary Clinton and the baby Jesus will be the Obamamessiah. According to accounts, Zachary’s 2011 Nativity display included depictions of gay couples and was vandalized and investigated by police as a hate crime. Imagine that … because there is nothing hateful about depicting Mary and Joseph as a gay couple, now is there?

Trayvon_Martin_Jesus_Nativity_FB

UPDATE I: Just how irresponsible and factually incorrect is it to some how portray Trayvon Martin as the symbol of innocence lost at the hands of gun violence when a the VIDEO below shows, Trayvon was no stranger to guns, fighting and drugs.

The text messages include a conversation from November 2011 in which he appears to say his mother has kicked him out of the house after “da police caught me outta skool.”

“So you just turning into a lil hoodlum,” the person with whom he is texting says.

“Naw, I’m a gangsta,” the text message read.

In other messages, text message exchanges appear to be discussing guns.

“U wanna share a .380 w/ (blacked out),” one text message sent from Martin’s phone reads.

Prosecutor Will Not File Domestic Violence Charges Against George Zimmerman

George Zimmerman ill not have domestic violence charges filed against him … now go away!!!

Seminole County prosecutors announced that they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, recanted in an affidavit that Zimmerman pointed a gun at her face. In a he said, she said case with limited evidence and the main witness who recanted and did not want to testify, the prosecutors had little choice but to drop the charges.  The initial charges stemmed from a domestic violence incident that took place on November 18, 2013 where Zimmerman faced aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.  OK George, even a cat only has 9 lives … NOW GO AWAY!

Prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend said in a sworn statement she did not want to pursue the case.

State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement Wednesday that Samantha Scheibe’s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence made a successful prosecution unlikely.

Zimmerman had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 incident at the central Florida house he shared with Scheibe. She initially told police Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her face, then recanted in an affidavit filed this week.

Statement made from Phil Archer, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County:

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office had probable cause to arrest Zimmerman after Scheibe called 911 and reported Zimmerman was armed and behaving threateningly.

“However, upon reviewing the recent affidavit … and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution,” said Archer, the top prosecutor for Seminole and Brevard counties.

Samantha Scheibe,George Zimmerman’s Girlfriend Wants to Drop Charges of Aggrevated Assault and ‘Be With Him’

I GUESS THIS WAS PRETTY PREDICTABLE … SOME ONE HAS HAD SOME MIND CHANGING.

27 year old Samantha Scheibe, the girl friend of George Zimmerman, who called 911 and claimed that he was vandalizing her stuff and threatening her with a gun, no longer wants to press charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault against him.Zimmerman was charged with domestic violence after supposedly pointing a gun at his girlfriend, listen to the 911 call.  Zimmerman had posted a $9000 bail, was told to stay away from his girlfriend and no guns.

In fact, she not only does not want to know press charges against him, she wants to be with him. Good grief, here is a match made some where. DA’s have to now determine whether they still want to pursue charges against Zimmerman without the cooperation of Scheibe. Mediaite reports, Zimmerman faced charges of aggravated assault after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, requested in writing that the court amend his bail conditions so that he can have contact with her. She wrote that Zimmerman “never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner.” Scheibe added, “I want to be with George.”

George Zimmerman’s girlfriend who called Florida police to say he was breaking her stuff and was brandishing a weapon no longer wants to press charges against him and instead wants to get back together with him.

Zimmerman, 30, who faces a felony aggravated assault charge as well as lesser charges stemming from the incident, is asking to have conditions of his bail modified so he can resume contact with Samantha Scheibe.

According to court documents filed by Zimmerman’s attorney Jayne Weintraub, Scheibe, 27, gave a sworn statement in which she wrote, “I do not want George Zimmerman charged.”

A note to George Zimmerman, go away. Stay out of the media and stop this nonsense.

“The Ballad for Trayvon Martin” Opens at Princeton University

No one will ever mistake ‘The Ballad for Trayvon Martin’ with the ‘Ballad of Davey Crockett.’

Princeton University Orchestra, conducted by Michael Pratt, and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble will play the ‘Ballad for Trayvon Martin’ Thursday and Friday. Hmm, the purpose of this is to exploit pay homage to victims of racial violence. You mean like the “killing fields” in Chicago?

Trayvon_Martin_Hoodie

Trayvon Martin continues to be a subject of intense interest for the academic elite. The Princeton University Orchestra and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble is set to debut “The Ballad for Trayvon Martin” today, NJ.com reports.

The goal of the music, according to its composer, noted jazz artist Anthony D.J. Branker, is to pay homage to victims of racial violence.

“I simply want to make a connection,” Branker said, “whether it’s on a level of social consciousness, or music and expression.”

The Daily Caller reports:

The director of the jazz studies program at Princeton University has written a ballad for Trayvon Martin.

If you happen to be in the area, you can catch the world premiere of “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” Thursday and Friday night at Richardson Auditorium on the Ivy League campus.

Tickets are just $15 (and $5 for students), reports The Star-Ledger.

The composer, Anthony D.J. Branker, said he was moved “to the core” by the death of Martin in February 2012.

Martin, a 17-year-old black teenager, was shot by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed-race Hispanic, in Sanford, Fla.

Branker, who founded Princeton’s jazz program 25 years ago, said the incident reminded him of an incident in his own life that occurred right after he graduated from the elite school.

“I was stopped by police at gunpoint because it was believed I broke into someone’s home,” he told The Star-Ledger. “I fit a profile. Police surrounded my car.”

Branker said the piece isn’t an angry musical screed. Noting that it incorporates a fugue and Brazilian style, he describes the jazz number as “a form of healing and something that could be seen as a composition of hope.”

Dinesh D’Souza Tweets about Obama: “I Am Thankful This Week When I Remember That America Is Big Enough and Great Enough to Survive Grown-Up Trayvon In the White House!”

Just days before Thanksgiving Dinesh D’Souza tweets what he is thankful for and goes there …

Dinesh D’Souza tweeted, “that I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!”  Oh boy, you know this is going to evoke a complete unhinged response from the LEFT. They will be calling him a vile racists and a “WHITE” Indian.  In 2012, D’Souza released ’2016: Obama’s America,’ a film based on his 2010 book ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’. Hmm, doesn’t D’Souza understand that only Obama can compare himself to Trayvon, if anybody else does they are race-baiting, racist swine.

Obama_trayvon martin2

And the LEFT did not disappoint as the social media on the LEFT went mental.

Supposedly, the tweet has since been deleted from D’Souza’s Twitter account.

Hmm, a grown-up Trayvon Martin in the White House. Having covered the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin murder trial and the events that led up to the case including the death and three-ring media circus, hell-bent on getting a pound of racist flesh from “white” Hispanic, George Zimmerman,” and having covered this disastrous presidency of Barack Obama, there are many things to be thankful for, I am not sure if I would have worded it quite as Dinesh D’Souza did. Although to be fair to him, it was Barack Obama who interjected himself into the Zimmerman-Martin case before he knew any of the facts of the case. But when did facts or the truth ever get in the way of Barack Obama? It was actually Obama who first made the comparisons to Trayvon, but playing the race card is perfectly okay. It was Barack Obama who said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” after he could not accept the jury verdict that found George Zimmerman “not guilty” in the murder of Trayvon.

However, what should have been said was the following … “I AM THANKFUL THIS WEEK WHEN I REMEMBER THAT AMERICA IS BIG ENOUGH AND GREAT ENOUGH TO SURVIVE BARACK OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE”.

America better hope it is big enough and great enough to do so because Obama has caused such great division, dissension and desperation among the people. Obama has devastated the economy and the will of people. Obama has spent us into oblivion at $17 trillion and counting. And if allowed Obama is going to destroy the insurance industry as we know it and in turn further wreck the US economy forever. Let this be a lesson to America, do not ever, ever, ever elect a socialist community agitator president, I could care whether he looked like George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin or Steve Martin.
