The Trayvon Martin Saga
Trayvon Martin Killed at Age:16
It is highly important, for
anyone who ascends any public platform, to champion a cause; the person must understand
a simple fact, if they want to be taken seriously. They must not only make lots
of noise, but they must ensure their message is clearly and intelligently
communicated. This can be accomplished in many ways.
This brings me to the Treyvon
Martin Story. There is no doubt, this lad was hunted down and murdered, even
after his pursuer: George Zimmerman was instructed by the guardian of the law:
the police, to leave the youth alone. It is also no secret, that Treyvon Martin
was targeted, for no reason other than, he was endowed with what some people
think is the wrong shade of skin.
The information we were exposed
to, revealed that there is a conspiracy and this conspiracy is geared to aid in
a miscarriage of justice. As a result of this conspiracy, when the
investigation is completed and George Zimmerman is arrested and charged; I
expect to see everyone in an official capacity that were involved in this cover
up, lose their job and be prosecuted for their role in trying to aid in the
miscarriage of justice or similar corruption charges.
My concern here is; the platform
of the Treyvon Martin’s movement, which is justifiable busy, in their fight for
justice on this youth’s behalf; unfortunately, this platform is an
inappropriate one. From where I stand, the call for the arrest of George
Zimmerman is not making much sense.And
this is so for a simple reason that boils down to the wrong use of a simple
Recently the police released a
video that show Zimmerman’s in handcuffs, being lead out of the police vehicle
and into what I assume to be booking area by officers.This is video evidence that Zimmerman was
arrested. Let me take some time to define what an arrest is. An arrest is
defined as the taking away or depriving a person of a persons liberty. So in
the true sense of the word, Zimmerman was actually arrested. Hence the call for
Zimmerman’s arrest is misleading, in that it give the public the impression
that Zimmerman was not arrested for the homicide of Trayvon Martin. It is
important to note that the call for George Zimmerman’s arrest will not be taken
seriously by the authority. The leaders and spokespersons of this movement must
make their desires known and communicate them clearly but most important, the expressed
desires of this movement; must be within the confines of the law.
The actions of those in
authority, who acted on George Zimmerman’s behalf, is considered corruption and
it take systematic acts of corrupt practice, such as was displayed in this case
to label an institution corrupt. George Zimmerman deprived Trayvon Martin of
his rights to be and live as a black young man, his rights to freedom of
movement and his rights to life. If the movement or anyone for that fact choose
to deprive Zimmerman of any of his rights; then they will be no better than the
man that is George Zimmerman.
What the movement should be
concerned with is at this point?
1.What happened when Zimmerman was arrested was he
processed in the manner that he should?
2.What was the nature and level of the inquiries
that the investigating officer make before a determination was made as to
3.On what lawful authority was Zimmerman released
after he was arrested.
It is important to note, the
authorities has no lawful obligation to rearrested George Zimmerman unless; the
condition of his discharge was violated, the term of his freedom as specified
in his discharge has expired, he becomes a flight risk or there is significant
development in the investigation that required Zimmerman to be rearrested and
be charge among other things. Other than the conditions outlined above, and as
much as I will like to see it happened, yet George Zimmerman cannot be lawfully
rearrested to appease the sense for justice of the black community of which I
am a part, or the grief of Trayvon Martin’s parents, or to give the appearance
that justice is being done.
To re-arrest George Zimmerman at
this point, other than at the conclusion of the investigation, or if he had
violate the conditions of his release or the term of his freedom as specified
in his discharge has expired, if he became a flight risk or there is
significant development in the investigation that required Zimmerman to be
rearrested, and be charged among other things; will constitute a violation
George Zimmerman’s rights.
It is important to note, it is wrong,
unethical, illegal and unlawful to violate one man’s rights, to undo the
errors, blatant or premeditated act of another or others to derail the justice
system on behalf of the first party. In such instances, as what happened with
George Zimmerman investigation, an investigation should be carried out into the
actions and procedure as it relates to Zimmerman’s initial arrest, process and
investigation and all who was guilty of wrong doing, should be made to face the
full extent of the law.
Due to the fact Zimmerman was arrested and
release he can only be rearrested. When the Treyvon Martin movement can
adequately answers the three questions above, then the movement can properly
construct a platform from which to champion the call for justice for this lad
behalf. Which will include not his arrest but his re-arrest.
The Trayvon Martin’s movement
should be made aware, of the simple things; these people can use the simplest
of thing to derail the justice and their action will be justify. To say that
you want George Zimmerman to be arrested simple means, George Zimmerman was
never arrested for the homicide (killing) of Trayvon Martin; but he was. Now to
call for his rearrested is another story.
It is important for the Trayvon
Martin Movement to remember, with whom they are dealing. Let me remind the
Treyvon Martin Movement, they are dealing with: a white, racist, self-identify
elite, bureaucracy that has the power and the level of spitefulness, to use
something as simple as the omission of the two letters such as: re- from before
the word arrest, (re-arrest) to continue to obstruct justice and still remain
within their rights to do so.
Now that we have come to the
conclusion that to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman is technically
wrong, this movement must make an effort to be politically correct; the call
should be for the re-arrest and detention of George Zimmerman pending the out
come of the investigation. The movement must now find adequate grounds for this
call; and such grounds can only be found, if they can ascertain on what grounds
Zimmerman was released from his arrest on that night of the incident.
Points to note:
Each time there is a homicide;
there must be an arrest and an investigation. For it is only through a proper
investigation can the lawful authorities determine if the actions and
forethought of the aggressor can render the homicide, a justified killing orthe homicide constitutes a criminal act and
if it does to what degree was this crime committed.
In such investigation there must
be collaboration of four investigative components and they are:
1.The cause of death
2.The method in which the fatal wound (s) was
inflicted or manner in which the agent of death was administered.
3.The evidence or the story of the crime scene
(including forensic evidence)
4.And the evidence or the story of the all
Even if all of the four
investigative components listed above was collaborated, there must be one more
litmus test, which must be passed before a homicide can be declared justifies
and that is: pass interaction between the people involved, their friends and or
their family. This is important in order to rule out concealed malice and
