In the Detective Bureau, we used a term called detective shopping. What this referred to was a person who called thinking they were a victim and when they didn’t get the answer they wanted, they would call again and talk to another detective in hopes they could get a different response. I see the same thing happening in the George Zimmerman case. I find it rather funny (like peculiar, not funny like haha), that no one can stand up and just make the decision to not charge Zimmerman. The charging of Zimmerman is just a sad case of justice being pushed to the public (jury) and the tax payers of Sanford, Florida. This will be a media, political and radical circus, just like the many high-profile cases we have watched on day time television. This is not justice; this is the charging of a man who acted in self defense to keep the radicals from rioting. “We did not come to this decision lightly,” Ms. Corey said. She added: “Let me emphasize that we do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. I say BS, Ms. Corey. The only reason things have gone this far and you didn’t allow the grand jury to decide is that you knew, Ms. Corey, that you couldn’t control the Grand Jury’s decision, so you made it own your own.
This case is not a case that will be able to show intent or the unlawful killing. This case will, however, show a man who was in fear of his life and had to result in self defense to prevent an attack. All that has been accomplished here is confusion on the part of the citizens of this country about when they can protect themselves when confronted with a violent attack.
Let’s just hope that this confusion doesn’t create such a confused state that citizens of this country start losing their lives when they could have protected themselves but were too afraid of political, radical and extremist persecution.
If in fact, Mr. Zimmerman is acquitted or found not guilty, the second wave will be enacted by the radicals and extremists. The very thing they are attempting to stop from happening will come to a head and with more preparation.
The Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense. Do we not follow The Constitution’s Bill of Rights any longer?
