Rather than endless speculation and rumor and wholesale lies and slander which have permeated the media and the blogs, here is the actual document filed by the prosecutor:

George Zimmerman Affidavit of Probable Cause

Here is what the case boils down to, and why Zimmerman was charged.

Zimmerman was ordered by police not to pursue Martin. He pursued him and shot him to death. That right there is the absolute end of any defense under the stand your ground law. That law does not say, OK, go and pick a fight, and if the person responds and defends themself, then it is OK to shoot them. And I suspect that is why the charge is second degree homicide, and not manslaughter.

I find it non-surprising that those on the ultra right and the full bore racist end of the spectrum are now attacking the prosecutor for being a commie liberal with political ambitions. Why, only two days ago, she was an extremely conservative Republican with excellent bone fides, appointed to this case by the most conservative governor in the history of the state.

If you want to swim in the racist gene pool, you have to look no further than the Fox News web site’s comments. This diary recorded a lot of them, in case Fox scrubbed them from their site. Reading these comments reassures me that my cynicism regarding the d*mned human race remains justified. I just checked the original story on Fox News site, and indeed, the comments have been removed. Here is a link to the story at Fox News, although the comments have disappeared, now: Zimmerman To Be Charged by Florida Special Prosecutor.

Fox News Racist Commenters React to Zimmerman Being Charged

Here is another blog that archived the racists comments.

Fox News Commenters Unleash Unholy Racist Hell Following Zimmerman’s Murder Charges

The blog Little Green Footballs, which is definitely a conservative leaning site, but more rational than most, posted quite a collection of the racist screeds being posted at Fox News in their comments on an earlier news story about the DOJ opening an investigation, as well, back in March. Here again, the article has now been scrubbed of comments by the Fox News team, every fair balanced in their pursuit of truth, justice, and the American way.

FWIW, here is a link to the original article at Fox News: Department of Justice opens investigation into case of black teenager killed by neighborhood watch captain. The author at Little Green Footballs says there were over 3,000 comments, and as he puts it, before quoting a large selection of comments, then closing afterwards:

This opens the door for more than 3,000 comments from the Fox News audience, packed with whiny right wing victimhood and overt racism.

OK. That’s all I could take. But the comments like these go on and on and on — there are thousands of them. And many of the ugliest comments received numerous “likes” from other readers.

The right wing base is sick to its core.

Just for the record, here is a sampling of the pearls of wisdom from the posters at Fox News on this story. And I am sure that all of them, if confronted with their racist remarks, would vigorously deny they are racists, and in fact accuse who ever called them a racist a racist for pointing out their racism to them. That is how their minds work.

These people, by the way, are the core supporters the GOP has sought to gather under their banner as reliable voters since the emergence of the so-called “Southern Strategy” several decades ago, when it became necessary to pretend you were not a racist.

Is Angela Corey a je -wess or a neg-ress ? I’ll bet the SPLC is dipping their tips in this. What we is fewer heebs and boos on the face of this planet. We need to have a global conference to come up with a plan to reduce our combined heeb/ we-be footprint.

I hope Zimmerman flees to Mexico for what these bureaucrats are attempting to do to him. This tossing him to the mob because its easier then dealing with the out of control bl acks is fing cowardly and disgraceful.

They can put Zimmerman on trial and they may even convict him, but George has saved countless victims by taking out this animal before he got the chance to hurt anyone else. Plus probably hundreds of victims from the offspring this thug would have more than likely produced with the neigborhood mamas.

It is the O.J. Simpson trial all over again. Facts do not matter … when the political left smells BL00D.
The race card is the only card that Obummer has left to play.
If it looks like he might not win the next election … look for things to get so bad that martial law is declared … and Obummer is deemed to be re elected…
TEA anyone?

Not surprising considering the media and liberals have already and publicly tried and convicted Zimmerman. All that’s left now is for the B lack Panthers to put on white robes and throw a rope over a tree limb. Of course Eric Holder and the compliant liberal media would somehow justify such an illegal act.

Time to disassociate from Blax. We have done everything we can for them since the civil war where we lost almost 600,000 whites fighting on their behalf. They have no appreciation and still hate us. No matter how much we give them, they continue the racist march. Don’t hire them or befriend them…they have proven they cannot be trusted to be intelligent and fair. Blax are only concerned for other Blax…they care nothing about anyone else.

If I was on this jury I couldn’t find him guilty just because Al Sharpton and Eric Holder have already convicted him. What the jury will be asked to do is to find this man guilty because of drummed up community outrage by b l a c k racists. He is guilty simply because a b l a c k man was killed, forget about the facts

Sharpton, Jackson and their “NoLimitNigga” chain gang are racial terr orists. They do nothing but stir up hatred with their race baiting and inflamatory speech. All they do is try to incite violence with their gold tooth rhetoric. But you don’t see the other “NoLimitNiggas” in the WHITE house or the Dept of Injustice arresting these criminals or the DHS investigating them for their terr orist activities. Guess jungle fever is spreading like wildfire now.

BIack people, would you please stop crying and bitching? It’s getting old. Time to man up, fellas. Time to quit acting like a bunch of mouthy ho’s, ladies. I swear, you’re a bunch of professional victims, and quite frankly, I’m tired of you butchering the English language, dressing like street trash and thinking everyone owes you something. Grow up, bIack people. Enough is enough.
