The Tale of Two Different George Zimmerman Legal Defenses
Zimmerman's New Lawyer Mark O'Mara Did The Right Representation Of Zimmerman and to the public, but his biggest challenge for Zimmerman is yet to come
Trayvon Martin was Black teenager shot and killed, armed only with a bag of Skittles and an Iced Tea, and whether it was an accident or not, George Zimmerman's defense blamed Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and anyone who did not accept his defense that Trayvon was a dangerous suspect worthy of death under Florida law.
Then the Zimmerman defense was to assassinate the character of Trayvon Martin to further prove that from the hoodie, to drugs, previous youth indiscretions that it further justified that Trayvon was the type of character who indeed could have put George Zimmerman in the life threatening position that justified Zimmerman to defend himself and shoot and kill Martin.
No where in the Zimmerman prior legal defense would Zimmerman admit in ANY shape or form that nothing he had done in the ultimate killing of Martin was his fault. And so this defense by Zimmerman and his supporters have to general hundreds of thousands of people to protest as this case has grown into an international frenzy until today with Zimmerman's final arrest and new defense.
No matter how bad Zimmerman may feel about his life has turned as a result of this tragedy, the only one who appears to "get it" is Zimmerman's new Attorney Mark O'Mara whose representation of Zimmerman today temporarily brought an emotional frenzy to a temporary halt until the next court date of May 29th and his decision not to even attempt to get Zimmerman released on any amount of bond absolutely satisfied those who were yearning to see Zimmerman IN JAIL BEHIND BARS after actually being arrested and charged.
Today was just day one of the Zimmerman new defense but it totally contrasts the "blame anybody but Zimmerman" defense his prior counsel specialized in on his behalf, so today the family and supporters of Trayvon Martin have been satisfied that their foundation of support for Trayvon has finally resulted in the basic request that Zimmerman be arrested and charged until he can be judged by a jury on the facts and that happened today, but the biggest challenge for new attorney in Zimmerman's defense is yet to come.
In all of Zimmerman's defenses, they included everything EXCEPT what started this whole tragedy and that was the decision that ZIMMERMAN made to continue to pursue Travon Martin despite the 911 operators clear suggestion for him NOT to !! No matter what eventually happened to Zimmerman's defense most major challenge is that decision by Zimmerman himself to blatantly ignore the 911 dispatcher! So today Zimmermans new defense while they have to aggressively attempt to defend him later didnt come to defend him today with more Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or anyone else who reacted nationally to blame, but solely on the facts that Zimmerman today answered the Special Prosecutors call that he be charged, arrested and for now being behind bars.
