Zimmerman Not Guilty and Why I Agree

By now you have no doubt heard that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

I could go into a point by point essay on why I agree with the decision and spout my opinion on race and the Second Amendment and all that as well. But I won't.

I just want to leave you with this link, which shows that Trayvon Martin chose to re-engage George Zimmerman. Martin was home-free and chose to go back for a fight. In my opinion, that shows Zimmerman was acting in self defense at the time of the shooting, all other issues aside.

Evidence that Trayvon Martin Doubled Back

3 Cops Caught Talking About Killing Fellow Officers Fired Without Charges

Three officers from the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee Police Department have been fired after recordings revealed they had been discussing killing fellow officers including the department's chief.

The contents of the recordings were revealed when investigators began looking into a harassment complaint.

The officers had been dispatched to check on the welfare of a visitor to the town at a local campground, and made contact with that person's girlfriend. They obtained her information and left, but a short time later she began receiving numerous text messages and Facebook friend requests. She subsequently filed a harassment complaint. During the investigation of that complaint investigators listened to the regular recordings made by equipment installed in the police cars, and heard the officers discussing killing other officers in explicit detail.

The officers were fired for misconduct, but criminal charges were not pursued by the district attorney or the U.S. attorney's office.

District Attorney General Jimmy Dunn excused the officers from criminal wrongdoing saying, "Even though they were sitting there talking about killing people... we haven't found there was any overt action taken. We have to prosecute using the law. No matter what we want it to be, or what we think it ought to be."

He went on to indicate that even though his office has considered a charge of official misconduct, he didn't believe a jury could be convinced there had been a crime.

Meanwhile, in other parts of the country, children are being treated as terrorists for far less than the overt planning of mass murder.

In one case a teenager was arrested, jailed for a month, and faced 20 years in prison for posting rap lyrics on Facebook. In another case, a teenager has been sitting in jail since February on charges of making terrorist threats stemming from a comment on a Facebook video game. The comment was admittedly violent sounding but also quite clearly meant as sarcasm. In Pennsylvania, school officials alleged that a five-year old made terror threats when she threatened to shoot classmates with a Hello Kitty bubble gun. In New York, a man's guns were confiscated and his permits revoked after his ten-year old son threatened to shoot classmates with a water pistol. Not a water pistol posing as a real gun mind you, just a water pistol. Authorities in Suffolk county have told the man he can't have his guns back until his son is 18 or moves out of the home. 

Even when their own are the target of violence, it seems that police hypocrisy knows no bounds. Time and time again we see that police officers are not held to the same standard of justice as the people, when they should actually be held to a higher standard of justice, not given special privilege in the face of gross wrongdoing.

Top Cop Threatens to Kill After Fellow Officer Gunned Down


Wife Caught Plotting Husband's Murder on Video

Sadly enough, cases like this are not particularly rare. This is actually a favored method for women to dispatch of the men in their lives, once they have decided to kill. While men are certainly not immune from hiring a contractor to murder their spouse or partner, often they prefer to take on the task themselves.

Women are more likely to hire someone, or even to manipulate a new lover into getting rid of the disfavored through murder. Often times these crimes will never be uncovered. And even when they are, the crime you see taking place in the videos below are not counted in domestic violence statistics, making those stats biases against males.

Also note how chillingly psychotic the young woman is, wanting an extra week with her husband, not wanting him to suffer, and essentially wanting to kill him because she doesn't want to "break his heart."

MUSKEGON, Mich. — Julia Charlene Merfeld said she wanted her husband killed because “it was easier than divorcing him.” That explanation came in a meeting with a man Merfeld thought she was hiring to do the murder.

Merfeld, 21, of Muskegon didn’t know the man was really an undercover police detective, or that she was being recorded on a hidden video camera.

Merfeld pleaded guilty June 27 to solicitation to murder. Chief Muskegon County Circuit Judge William C. Marietti committed to cap her minimum sentence at six years. The maximum can be anything up to life in prison, depending on Marietti’s decision at her sentencing July 30.



Mos Def Submits to Guantanamo Bay Forced Feeding Practice

As Ramadan begins, more than 100 hunger-strikers in Guantanamo Bay continue their protest. More than 40 of them are being force-fed. A leaked document sets out the military instructions, or standard operating procedure, for force-feeding detainees. In this four-minute film made by Human Rights organisation Reprieve and Bafta award-winning director Asif Kapadia, US actor and rapper Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), experiences the procedure.

Warning: some viewers may find these images distressing.

The following brief was found on InfoWars.com

Rapper, actor and activist Yasiin Bey, better known as Mos Def, stars in a short film produced by Human Rights organization Reprieve and Bafta award-winning director Asif Kapadia depicting the brutal Standard Operating Procedure conducted at prisons across America such as Guantanamo Bay, where prisoners are not only coerced into sterilization, but are also subjected to force feeding against their wills, a practice many detainees see as a cruel and unusual form of punishment in line with torture.

Earlier this year, it was reported that at least 100 prisoners at the U.S. prison camp located in Cuba were conducting hunger strike protests meant to convey frustration with their indefinite detainment status.

The closure of Guantanamo Bay was one of the campaign platforms then-junior Senator Obama ran on. In June 2007 he told a crowd in Texas, “We’re going to close Guantanamo. And we’re going to restore habeas corpus… We’re going to lead by example—not just by word but by deed. That’s our vision for the future.”

Pentagon Purges Files On Bin Laden Raid

In an unprecedented move to insulate themselves from the facts of the so-called "Bin Laden Raid" the Pentagon has purged documents from their computer systems related to that raid.

Because the outright destruction of those documents would have been illegal, they were all packed up and shipped off to the CIA where they are protected against Freedom of Information requests and even court orders. The legality of the transfer at all is highly questionable and was never even examined before the transfer actually took place. It seems that everyone agrees the move is highly irregular, even if not an outright crime perpetrated on the orders of the Pentagon's top Special Operations Commander.

The sanitizing of Department of Defense computers would have remained secret has it not been for a watchdog group who noted one sentence, referring to the purge of Bin Laden raid documents, in an inspector general's report. There had been an inquiry about whether President Obama may have shared sensitive material with the creators of the movie "Zero Dark Thirty." But even that sentence was purged from the final report.

The Associated Press has raised the alarm on yet another example of the government secrecy shell game in the following artcle:

Bin Laden raid files reportedly purged from Pentagon computers, sent to CIA

Here is an excerpt from that report:

The AP asked the Defense Department and CIA separately for files that included copies of the death certificate and autopsy report for bin Laden as well as the results of tests to identify the body. While the Pentagon said it could not locate the files, the CIA, with its special power to prevent the release of records, has never responded.

This unprecedented level of secrecy, bordering on criminality, begs a single question. Why?

To protect the "dignity" of the world's most sought after terrorist? Refusing to show the pictures of his remains seems hardly reason enough. The Pentagon was clearly not worried about putting American lives in danger, even as we were actively fighting a standing army, when they published images of Saddam Hussein's dead sons. Not to mention the brutal video of the deposed leader's execution.

Besides, if the Pentagon was really that fearful of reprisals from publishing pictures of a dead Bin Laden, perhaps they should have thought about that before they decided to execute the man, rather than putting him on trial and debriefing the world's most wanted terrorist for vital intelligence. The fact that they elected to kill him at all is dubious.

Just as dubious as his burial at sea, that was witnessed by no one, did not conform with Islamic tradition, and served no real purpose at all except to maintain inordinate levels of secrecy. 

Some have excused secrecy surrounding the Bin Laden raid as being necessary to protect the identities of the military operators who reportedly carried out the raid. Yet some of those specialized personnel have gone on to write books and appear in "tell all" interviews. It was also reported that most of the commandos who were on the raid were part of US Navy SEAL Team 6, which was decimated in a helicopter crash in the mountains of Afghanistan a short time after the raid.

This of course, led to rampant conspiracy theories that perhaps our very own government was the real threat to those commandos, and that they were wiped out to protect the secrets of the Bin Laden raid.

But this leads us again back to the question, why? What secret is so powerful that the Pentagon would go to such great lengths to cover up not only all of their knowledge about the raid, but also to virtually disavow their involvement at all?

After years and years of the American government trumpeting how dangerous Osama Bin Laden was, and his al-Qaeda network, suddenly the Pentagon does an about face and threatens the American public to shut up about the Bin Laden raid.

So what are they really hiding? What is the truth about 9/11, al-Qaeda, the war on terror, and the death of Osama bin Laden?
