So George Zimmerman is going to trial, where a jury will decide what actually happened between him and Trayvon Martin. Until the trial is finished mulish minds on both sides will cling to their predetermined versions of the truth. Such devout passions deserve their own conspiracy.

Generally, conspiracy theories represent easy explanations for otherwise unexplainable events, or they promote a political agenda. Thus we have “Truthers,” “Birthers,” and tyrannical secret societies propagated by the Illuminati. However, just because most conspiracies are built on fluff rather than substance doesn’t entirely discount the reality of conspiracies. We’re witnessing one in Sanford, Florida.

Trayvon Martin’s life was unquestionably squandered, whether Zimmerman is innocent or guilty. That’s the singular point upon which all sides should agree; after that the facts are muddled. So let’s focus on the conspiracy rather than on rehashing divergent and unsubstantiated opinions. Doesn’t it seem odd for a prosecutor to file a second-degree murder charge after the initial investigation produced no such evidence? Why would an experienced prosecutor take such a stance?

Bear in mind that I’m not raising this question; it’s the question respected legal experts have asked since photographic evidence was revealed that supports Zimmerman’s story. What did the prosecution know concerning those photos prior to filing the murder charge?

According to Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, the second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman is “so thin it won’t make it past a judge . . . everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.” Dershowitz also said the prosecution committed a “grave ethical violation” if the photos were known prior to filing the affidavit.

Mr. Dershowitz continued, “The whole country is watching. What do they benefit from having half-truths in an affidavit?”

I won’t pretend to instruct Mr. Dershowitz on the finer points of law. However, I will argue politics to a certain degree. And politics has forged public opinion about George Zimmerman from the outset. Therefore the State benefits greatly from filing a second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman . . . if the evidence confirms he acted in self-defense.

Consider what a powder keg this case has been since day one. Zimmerman and his family have been threatened. Race hustlers accused the Sanford Police Department of a quasi-lynching and subsequent cover-up. Protesters demanded not only Zimmerman’s arrest but his conviction. The New Black Panthers placed a bounty on Zimmerman and the pros and cons of self-defense and gun control laws have been argued. The product of these variables is division and potential civil unrest, which truly benefits no one.

The prosecution found itself in a tight spot. There was a need to placate the mob mentality and avoid potential riots while also protecting the rights of the accused and of self-defense. What could be a better solution than filing a tough-on-crime charge that can’t produce a conviction? The mob’s call for justice is answered without taking a chance on imprisoning an innocent defendant or compromising the right of self-defense.

It’s a tidy conspiracy. Any takers?

    This trial on zimmerman is (not a roman circus) is worst, is a zionist circus..
    Zimmerman is already condemned before the end of the trial to apeace the monkeys…

    You will see that the members of the jury are manipulable women (whites and latins) so that when the judge dictate sentence the people can’t say “RACISM”…

    As always….another great post from Hager.

    I disagree with your tidy conspiracy, however. The wrath that a non conviction will bring should be of greater concern. I am not sure why she did not send it ti a grand jury. She created the image of a kangaroo court from the very onset. She looked almost giddy when she held her presser to announce his charges.

    Would those that believe in this alleged conspiracy be called “Zimmers”?

    Just after the arrest my liberal co-workers were all excited about a lady in FL who shot at her ex in her home when he attacked her.  She was charged with assault and endangering her children.  The idea was that since she did not shoot AT him (she shot into the roof and the guy ran off to the police to press charges) she was not “standing her ground”.  

    My liberal CW’s were quick to point out that this was because she was black skinned, and the court supported the charges.  Down in the foot note the name of the DA, the same lady who brought up charges on Zimmerman with out going to the grand jury. (and who is publicly against the no retreat idea and is reported to have made comments about citizens having weapons.)

    This is a just an issue “they” are using to argue against letting people have the human right of self defense. My liberal CW’s are able to pull up story after story of CCW holders shooting first and then asking questions.  Even one story about a guy who attacked a couple in their home but was found late to have a head injury that made him go nuts.  ”He should have gotten help from the people who killed him instead of a bullet.”  (for get that he was attacking someone)

    “They” are having a hard time with the fact that CCW’s have gone up massively and gun deaths have not.  They are freaking out that people are not turning the kids playground into the OK coral like they said would happen.  They are panicked that rational formally servile voters are buying guns like no tomorrow, supporting self-defense laws, and supporting laws that support human rights.

    It is a complete waste of tax payer money when there is no basis for such a trail.  The state shows how weak it is for not standing up against race baiting hustlers.

      You are right on!  I worry more about how law enforcement people can now be manipulated by political policy than about so called “hate crimes”.

      If getting justice now depends on what political party you belong to, we are ALL screwed big time!
