One thing you do not hear from Nancy Grace’s lips is, “Justice for Trayvon.” Do you remember the mantra, “Justice for Caylee?” Caylee was white and Trayvon was black.
I am totally perplexed as to why Nancy Grace is avoiding “history” regarding George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.
After writing that opening sentence I stopped for a few minutes because even I do not believe what I just wrote.
Almost everyone who watches Nancy Grace on a regular basis either to see her attack those she assumes to be guilty of crimes or to see her stand up for victims in general are probably scratching their heads wondering why Nancy is choosing to not bring up any history on either the shooter, George Zimmerman or the person he shot, Trayvon Martin.
Nancy never apologizes for her assaults on those being charged in crimes such as Scott Peterson, Casey Anthony, and Drew Peterson.
Nancy digs and digs into the past of suspects – uncovering domestic abuse, arrest records, incidents during prior relationships, employment history, and extensive interviews of friends, relatives, and neighbors.
Sometimes her investigative work is valuable and sometimes it is purely presented for its shock effect on her viewers.
So, my question is this: Why is Nancy mum on the questionable history of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin?
Could it be because one of the men is white and the other is black and the white man, the shooter in this case, has so much more history to discuss than what she has been able to dig up on Trayvon Martin.
Nancy has NEVER backed off digging up the dirt on black suspects – i.e. boyfriends of women whose children died under questionable circumstances. She has also never refrained from bringing up someone’s predisposition to child pornography or someone’s seedy or checkered past.
Another thing NANCY is known for is questioning why a given person has or has not taken a polygraph test. In fact, Nancy is somewhat obsessed with polygraphs – she beats up defense attorneys who try to give logical reasons why a suspect would refuse to take a polygraph test. So, why is Nancy not demanding or even suggesting that George Zimmerman take a polygraph test? Could it be because George is white and Trayvon was black?
So, again, why no in-depth analysis on the background of George and Trayvon?
I believe I know the answer – I was just bringing up a few items here to make people absorb my questions in a way to make them really think and come up with their own reasons why history is not being discussed in this case.
I propose to everyone reading this is that the main reason is because Trayvon was black and because he was so young he had much less dirt in his past and the majority of questionable things in his past were quite minor. It also is because George Zimmerman has a long list of things he has done wrong in his past that would make him look like the obvious bad guy in this case.
I also believe that if Nancy did do meaningful research into the past of both individuals, Nancy probably said, “Holy Bananas”, we are not going to go into George’s past because it will be a nail in the coffin for George in the eyes of my viewers.”
Rightly so, Nancy, rightly so!
When Nancy does extensive research, she uses what she finds to build her case and she brings up the bad stuff she finds over and over and over and over.
I did not have to dig too long to find stuff on George Zimmerman – I found major stuff the first day I started blogging on this case.
So, why is Nancy refusing to even hint at George Zimmerman’s past?
George Zimmerman has a significant arrest record of violence against others – domestic violence and even violence when being encountered by law enforcement. He even has a history of violence, on his part, when he was a security officer in a club and throwing an assumed drunk woman across the room.
In a nutshell, he was charged with resisting arrest, battery of a police officer, and domestic violence.
Those tidbits alone should have Nancy salivating. She thrives on the bad guy having an arrest record – especially if the charges might correlate to the incident at hand.
The problem to me is Nancy is probably having trouble accepting the fact that the white man might be the bad guy in this case.
So, let me correlate. George Zimmerman, in the past, was arrested for domestic violence – a crime in which one partner goes after and assaults the other partner. Does that ring a bell in the Trayvon Martin case – a case where George Zimmerman disregarded a police dispatcher’s advice that he back off following Trayvon? Zimmerman, did, in fact, NOT back off, he continued to follow Trayvon where a fight ensued and Trayvon was killed.
It also correlates to the nightclub incident where George Zimmerman got out of control and threw a woman across the room – which resulted in Zimmerman getting fired.
George Zimmerman resisting arrest also correlates to where he resisted following the advice of the police dispatcher and continued following Trayvon.
So, again, Nancy would normally be going over this wealth of information so much each and every night that anyone watching the show could quote her words to friends and relatives.
Could it be that Nancy Grace is not bringing this stuff up because Trayvon, the young boy who was murdered was BLACK and George Zimmerman, the shooter, is WHITE?
Additional information about Zimmerman that could make Nancy Grace standoff is that George Zimmerman’s mentor, and protector is his own father, Robert Zimmerman, the retired State Supreme Court retired magistrate – a man who still has significant clout and has been protecting George all his life and using his clout to keep him out of jail.
I believe that another tidbit in making her back off is that the State District Attorney is rumored to have “visited” the Sanford Police Department the night of the incident and was instrumental in overturning the detective who wanted George Zimmerman arrested – and as a result, George Zimmerman walked out the door of the police station that fateful night while Trayvon was in the morgue – unable to speak for himself.
Maybe Nancy is refraining about discussing George Zimmerman’s past is because if the D.A. is okay with George Zimmerman not being charged for Manslaughter then that is good enough for her. After all, Nancy was a prosecutor for years and she and the district attorneys are, after all, on the same team.
What is the connection between George Zimmerman’s father, Robert Zimmerman, who, again, is a retired Supreme Court Magistrate and the State District Attorney – beyond both being Jewish and both being on the side of the law?
What I found out about them is that they served together in Vietnam.
So, why is Nancy Grace not digging into the connection between Norman Wolfinger and Robert Zimmerman? Is she being told to back off? Is she being told to only cover the facts directly attributed to the case itself?
Or, worse yet, might Nancy showing her true colors? It is a given that Nancy spends much less time solving crimes against blacks but when blacks are the alleged perps, the sky is the limit.
That is not the case with Trayvon Martin because Nancy is covering the sensational issues surrounding this case but she is doing it at a safe distance. The only thing Nancy has said about Zimmerman is that he initially appeared to be the aggressor in this case but she leaves the door open to there being a role reversal if Trayvon later attacked Zimmerman and then became the aggressor himself, which would then have justified Zimmerman defending himself against Trayvon with lethal force.
One thing I see Nancy doing over and over is permitting Frank Taaffe, a neighbor and friend of George Zimmerman to interrupt everyone who might have a different position regarding the incident where Trayvon was killed. Jane Velez-Mitchell has also given Frank Taaffee a free microphone – letting him freely speak and also letting him run over all others who take exception to George Zimmerman. Why?
Frank Taaffe continuously asks others being interviewed, “Were you there?” When others start to take exception, Taaffe is always allowed to talk over their comments.
I have yet to hear anyone talk over Frank Taaffe unless Taaffe did it first. They all were respectable even while Frank Taaffe was avoiding pointed questions. On the Jane Velez-Mitchell show, when anyone attempts to respond to Frank Taafee’s constand interruptions, Jane simply says, “One at a time, please”, but when Taafee interrupts, Jane simply lets it happen. Why?
Why is Nancy permitting this? I believe it is because Trayvon was black and Nancy is doing everything to avoid getting into George Zimmerman’s checkered past and the questionable actions of George’s father, Robert Zimmerman and their “friend” State District Attorney Norman Wolfinger.
So, Nancy, why are you not questioning the relationship between Robert Zimmerman, Norman Wolfinger, and possibly the Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee?
There are other blog sites that talk of Robert Zimmerman and Norman Wolfinger serving in Vietnam together. There are other websites that have Bill Lee, the Sanford Police Chief being an Associate Dean of the School of Public Safety at Seminole State College, the same school that George Zimmerman attended and studied Criminal Justice until he was expelled from the school.
Even though George Zimmerman was expelled from the college that Bill Lee was an Associate Dean, George Zimmerman was, after all, the son of his friend Robert Zimmerman, the retired State Supreme Court Justice who he served with in Vietnam.
Bonds are made in combat that are seldom broken and are frequently thicker than adhering to the written law – even when it results in overriding a detective’s manslaughter recommendation.
