We are nearly two weeks into the George Zimmerman trial, and it is beginning to look like legally, this case shouldn’t have even made it this far. Regardless of what one thinks of Zimmerman, there is less and less evidence that warrants convicting him of second-degree murder. Earlier this week, we learned Trayvon’s dad testified that he did not think it was his son’s voice on the critical 9-1-1 call.
“So Zimmerman looks unbelievably innocent,” Glenn said on radio this week. “Trayvon Martin's dad even answers ‘no’ to the question of whether that's his son screaming for help. Even Trayvon's dad is saying, ‘Nope, that's not my son.’”
Furthermore, the judge has reversed her decision and is now going to allow toxicology reports from the night of Trayvon’s death to be used as evidence. This case has become so sensational and racially charged in large part because the media initiated the narrative within minutes of learning of the shooting.
“I mean, the media has made this kid into – now we finally are being allowed the evidence in the trial of his dope smoking and the fact that he, in the toxicology reports, he had drugs in his system. Now, that doesn't make you necessarily violent, but it does make you paranoid,” Glenn continued. “The media has not done their job on Trayvon Martin… In the last year, the media has condemned Zimmerman, and it appears now that they were completely wrong on that. So they have set the wheels into motion for civil unrest here in America.”
“Yeah, you had the usual suspects: Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson doing the same thing they always do, trying to convict people before they knew any of the facts. Trying to convict because they perceived him as a white guy,” Pat continued. “And that's what they do. They go to where a white person is in hot water, either rightly or wrongly, and they try to convict them before the trial even occurs. That's what they did with the Duke lacrosse team, that's what they did in the Tawana Brawley case. That's what they did here.”
The most concerning aspect of this case is the potential fallout. Since Zimmerman has already been condemned in the eyes of so many, if he ends up walking free, the situation could turn dire.
“So now what's happening is Zimmerman's going to be let out, and they are already saying that they'll kill him,” Glenn said. “If he goes out on the street, they'll kill him. And you know what? I think they will. I think they will… If he is found innocent, here's what will happen: They will either kill him in the streets or they will try him for civil rights violations. And because he's violated the civil rights by taking this guy, this poor young man's life, that's how they'll get him. His life is over one way or another. And for what? For what? You weren't there. I wasn't there. The best evidence is, at best, inconclusive.’
