The Conservative Treehouse.com: A Nation of George Zimmermans Awakened – Understand The Fraud – Post Verdict of Acquittal ….
I learned A LOT that I wasn't previously aware of from that post! However, I DO recall hearing this statement:
“We are not asking that he [Zimmerman] be convicted; We are asking that he be arrested.”
-Benjamin Crump Esq. Attorney for Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fuller (Quoted to Piers Morgan on 4/3/2012)
The moment that I heard that statement (which was quoted over a year ago) I thought that it was a very odd one! Does it sound like a strange comment to you, too?
The article continues:
And there you have it, the ulterior motive, the hidden agenda:
The Trayvon family is not seeking justice in the form you would think. No, they are seeking monetary justice, or more directly monetary gain. THAT is the motivation; and the absence of an “arrest” is what stands between them and their ability to sue in civil court”.
Ask yourself why would anyone want an arrest without a conviction?
“We are not asking that he be convicted; We are asking that he be arrested”
Why is that so important?
The answer can be found in the statutes of Florida law surrounding Justifiable Use Of Force (Statute 776) which outlines in Statute 776.032
Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force:
(1) A person who uses force as permitted in s. 776.012, s. 776.013, or s. 776.031 is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless the person against whom force was used is a law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 943.10(14), who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the officer identified himself or herself in accordance with any applicable law or the person using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.
(2) A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.(3) The court shall award reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection (1).
Note that in section 2 of the immunity statute 776.032 a person is “immune” from criminal or CIVIL action if they are not arrested. The arrest itself can be interpreted as “Probable Cause” the force, or action taken, was unlawful.
Remember the key distinction between guilt or innocence in Criminal vs. Civil trials. In criminal trials the burden of proof is “beyond a reasonable doubt”. In civil trials the burden of proof is “with a preponderance of the existing evidence”; this is where probable cause comes into play. For the purpose of “monetary justice” it only takes an arrest; a subsequent conviction is not necessary.
Without an arrest there is no standing for a civil case awarding monetary damages to Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fuller against George Zimmerman, the HOA for The Retreat At Twin Lakes, and possibly the City of Sanford and all of their respective insurance companies.
Without an arrest there is no implied probable cause which could lead to Compensatory and punitive damages for wrongful death.
They need an arrest. They DO NOT need a conviction.
The other approach to a monetary victory would be a “Federal” civil rights investigation and possible arrest on federal civil rights laws. Hence a better understanding of why attorney Benjamin Crump is fabricating information to the Federal Department of Justice. In the letter to the DOJ Crump said:
“We look forward to your thorough and comprehensive review of the suspicious circumstances surrounding this meeting, and the decision to disregard the recommendation to arrest Zimmerman”In response State Attorney Norm Wolfinger released a statement on Monday saying he is “outraged by the outright lies” contained in a letter written by the attorney of Trayvon Martin’s parents, who are seeking a federal review in the case.You can see how valuable the compassion of Washington DC power people can be in the engagement of the goal. Indeed many people wondered why Congressional members called a hearing into this one case. Perhaps “who” coordinated the hearing is the clarity needed in understanding the “why”, for at the heart of the conversation is the Congressional Black Caucus. Anyone remember the CBC and the victory called Pigford?
Successfully using the office of the President and Eric Holder’s DOJ to “leverage” a chosen outcome is, well, smart racial politics. Especially when there is a strong possibility of favorable public opinion driven by a misguided, and more than willing water-carrying media, to benefit the Oval Office.
