Just when you thought it was safe to return to the village, the prosecutorial monster from Florida’s fourth judicial court has, like Beowulf's nemesis Grendel, just raised her head from the murky waters that she travels in and has returned from her cesspool to terrorize the locals by overcharging defendants in highly politicized cases.
Florida States Atty: Angela Corey [National Review Photo]
Angela Corey was appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott to lead the prosecution of George Zimmerman as a result of political pressure he experienced back in 2012 when Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, a violent teenager who attacked him.
Black activists, anti-gun, anti-stand-your-ground, and anti-NRA advocates swarmed the press and governor’s office demanding that Zimmerman be prosecuted for shooting an unarmed teenager who had been previously suspended from school for fighting.
Martin also had a penchant for photography. There was a photograph on his cell phone of a young man’s hand, probably Martin’s, holding a semi-auto pistol over a stained mattress.
Countless implications could be drawn from that photo alone considering Martin’s lack of character. Yet it was Zimmerman that was pegged as a racist for shooting the violent teenager in self-defense.
Angela Corey’s attempt to charge Zimmerman with second-degree murder was laughable since second-degree murder is not a description for what happened in the altercation between Zimmerman and Martin. Yet Corey pushed for a second-degree conviction and lost miserably to an all female jury before an audience of millions that watched the trial live on television.
Zimmerman was ultimately acquitted in court and branded as a racist by Oprah Winfrey and others. Despite his character being assassinated by numerous talking heads on television, Zimmerman recently sold one of his paintings for over $100,000 and has recently painted a picture of Angela Corey stating that she has “this much respect for the American Judicial System.” The painting shows her fingers pinched together.
After losing so miserably before the eyes of millions of people on national television, one would think that Angela Corey would be more careful the next time a highly publicized case came around.
Jordan Davis [ezkool photo]
Back in November 2012, a white male, Michael Dunn, confronted a group of black youths who were playing loud music in their car by a gas station. There was a negative verbal exchange, then moments later Dunn fired into their car killing Jordan Davis and wounding several others.
The killing of Davis was a clear case of second-degree murder or less. To qualify for a second-degree murder charge in Florida, the prosecutor has to prove that the “defendant acted according to a ‘depraved mind’ without regard for human life.” Second-degree murder does not require a prosecutor to prove premeditation.
Michael Dunn [erockfordblog]
But after the state lost its attempt to convict Dunn on a first degree murder charge, despite the fact that there was no premeditative element involved, the jury convicted him on several attempted murder charges where Dunn shot and wounded Davis’ friends.
Outrage spilled out from the anti-gun, anti-stand-your-ground propagandists. Once again, emotion was ruling the day and the cameras were rolling. Logic dictates that if Dunn just met Davis, then there was no time for a premeditative homicide. Therefore any competent states attorney would not have pressed first-degree homicide charges against Dunn. The jury ultimately did the right thing by doing what it could by convicting Dunn on several counts of attempted murder instead.
Dunn could go to prison for a long time with the charges he was convicted of. But this is not good enough for Angela Corey. Despite the stupidity of charging and losing her attempt to jail Zimmerman on second-degree murder, she wants to retry Dunn so that she can convict him for the first-degree murder of Davis. Yet Dunn had just met Davis so this is hardly a case where a premeditative element would apply.
Facts make no difference to Angela Corey who seems to love the camera more than Al Sharpton did during the Zimmerman affair. Corey is going to risk setting Dunn free on many legal technicalities according to Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. According to Dershowitz in a CNN interview, Dunn was “overcharged,” and “Dunn could walk free due to Corey’s 'prosecutorial ineptitude.'”
Dershowitz went on to say “The people of Florida ought to get smart and get rid of her.”
The people should have recalled Corey after the Zimmerman case along with their Governor Rick Scott. To allow Corey to operate like a steamroller in a China shop with the throttle stuck to the floor to appease political pressure from activists and to look good in the eyes of the anti-stand-your-ground press is inexcusable.
Corey needs to head back to her murky cesspool and stop terrorizing the locals with her style of overcharging defendants. She needs to leave the legal system to precision-minded lawyers who will charge defendants with the appropriate statutes given to them by the Florida legislature to obtain justice.

The New Jersey legislature put a law on the books years ago that would ban the sale of traditional firearms in favor of guns armed with a chip that would recognize the owner of the firearm and disable itself if the gun fell into the wrong hands. There are many companies that appear to be lining up to fill New Jersey's demand for safer firearms.
Armatix iP1 .22lr Pistol Armatix iW1 Active RFID Watch
One corporation that appears to be capable of satisfying New Jersey law makers is Armatix. Armatix is a German based corporation that designs and manufactures a futuristic looking .22lr caliber pistol which comes equipped with a circuit that interfaces with a companion battery operated RFID wristwatch which requires its owner to type a pin number into the watch before the firearm can be operational. If the wristwatch travels more than ten inches from the pistol, the firearm disables itself preventing a child or thief from using it.
Yard Arm cellular tracking and trigger safety system
Another company bent on firearm safety is Yardarm that makes a system which is integrated into the cellular network. Their system allows a gun owner to disable a firearm at a distance and know if their firearms are being moved. The Yardarm system acts like a home alarm system and can call the police if a gun owner’s firearms were being stolen.
Boosters for the Yardarm and Armatix systems are overjoyed at the presence of these latest technologies because they feel these electronic systems will make firearms safer by helping to prevent accidents and criminal activity.
Tracking Point XactSystem
However some firearm safety enthusiasts who adore smart guns may not care for the $27,000 computer-aided system developed by Tracking Point that helps the novice rifle owner hit targets at 1,000 yards with greater frequency. The shooter simply needs to point a dot on the target and the computer assists the rifle operator in making the shot. Information gathered by the scope could even be streamed onto the Internet for others to watch.
Some may feel that this makes the rifle too powerful and can turn a common criminal into an expert sniper capable of committing more damage due to the computer assisted shooting.
The most disturbing aspect of this issue is that people think that by re-engineering the gun society will somehow be safer or in greater danger depending on the technology being deployed. Yet every day, gang members use non-electronic firearms to murder each other and innocent bystanders so that they can control drug distribution areas worth a King’s ransom. Smart guns may save a few lives if they become popular, but what are ordinary citizens or gang members going to do with the guns they already own? How will smart guns stop accidents when Americans already own and operate several hundred million guns that will easily last as long as the relics from the revolution?
Smart guns could prevent accidents caused by children, but who is going to buy one when many people already have the standard technology? What market share will electronic guns have in the next ten years? A healthy guess would be a very low share due to their higher cost and questionable reliability; therefore electronic guns will probably have a very low impact on accidents and crime.
Gang Culture, "The Untelevised Revolution" by Malcolm Pruitt
Retrieved from: http://thewordlasc.weebly.com/gang-culture--malcolm-pruitt.html
Firearms are not the source of our violent crime problems. Gangs that operate in impoverished neighborhoods like Chicago’s west side or in south central Los Angeles commit most of the homicides our country. There is a global lust for drugs and people in the poorest neighborhoods are desperate enough to perform the most dangerous jobs to get a share of the money generated from drug sales. America prefers to spend billions on a global military network when it’s obvious that such spending is needed at home to fix our rotting bridges and crime issues. Yet who lobbies for the poor as well as our military to accomplish this?
Our country needs to understand that electronic gimmicks, although interesting, have no way of solving our problems. We need to invest in impoverished neighborhoods if we are going to have any chance of making them more peaceful. As far as accidents are concerned, there are trigger locks, safes and other technologies already available to keep guns safer. What makes anyone think that careless gun owners won’t leave their RFID wristwatches around for their kids to get their hands on?
No technology can protect children from careless parents while enhanced optics and computer generated aiming will not turn people into criminals any more than the current technology that is already available. We need to look deeper into our psychology to help resolve our problems.

Back in December of last year, Phil Robertson of the Duck Dynasty show opened up his foul mouth and let forth a putrid volume of bigoted insults aimed at the gay population. Robertson was expressing his negative feelings towards gay men when he said, “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Gov. Jindal Sarah Palin Phil Robertson
Gov. Jindal Sarah Palin Phil Robertson
As if that wasn’t enough, the duck whistle blowing bigot gave his viewpoint on what he considered to be sinful by equating homosexuality with “bestiality” and with people that “sleep around” or are “drunkards, greedy, slanderers, and swindlers” who will not inherit the kingdom of the invisible man for their sins.
Presumably Robertson is referring to the kingdom of god the cosmological dictator that favors minions of hate like Jerry Falwell by rewarding them with heavenly land for spending a lifetime insulting gays and evolutionists with uneducated remarks before a national audience.
Robertson also did a great job rewriting history by saying that organizations that came from countries without Jesus were more prone to violence like the Nazis and Communists. This belief ignores the fact that the Russians, to some degree, were Russian Orthodox and the Nazi’s were a combination of Catholic and Protestant. On the belt buckles of the Nazi’s worn during World War Two, the inscription read, “gott mit uns.” Translated this means “god with us.” So the German and Russian people were not godless as Robertson has stated.
The most startling observation however, were not comments made by a retrobate who makes his living blowing into a duck whistle to amuse other retrobates via the television, but the level of support Robertson has received from the politically connected like Sarah Palin and Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana. Both have stated that they believe Robertson has a right to his beliefs and to say them on television. Apparently they were upset over the fact that A&E suspended the duck whisperer temporarily for embarrassing their network with his asinine comments.
KKK Lester Maddox
It’s no surprise that Palin and Jindal are against gay marriage. Both are conservatives and the conservatives formed in response to US policy change favoring civil liberties for blacks. Both have come out against gay marriage and to make matters even worse, Palin belongs to a church called the Wasilla Bible Church in Wasilla Alaska. In 2008, the church held a conference promoting the idea that they could heal gays by praying away their same sex orientation!
More disturbing is the fact that in 2005 the Ku Klux Klan supported Proposition 2 during a “pro-family values” rally in Austin Texas which eventually passed and prohibited gay marriages in that state. Sadly, the KKK points to the same bible that Palin and Robertson do to justify their beliefs. Grand dragon of the KKK Steven Edwards said, “We're asking Texans to support Proposition 2 because God supports it, not because the KKK supports it.”
When Palin and Jindal say they support Robertson’s right to speak his mind, their defense of his rights is reminiscent of the way racists in Atlanta used to defend their “rights” by segregating buses, schools, public pools and restaurants by claiming they were protecting their “right of association.” In his book White Flight, Princeton University Professor Kevin M. Kruse details how racist conservatives would “tone down their racist rhetoric and stress their own rights instead.”
Lyndon B. Johnson with Martin Luther King Jr Signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Lester Maddox, owner of the Pickrick restaurant in Atlanta Georgia claimed to Federal Judge Frank Hooper back in 1965 that he wasn’t kicking people out because they were black. Maddox, according to his attorneys, was restricting his clientele for political and not racial reasons. Maddox said, “Color doesn’t have anything to do with rejection of customers from my place of business…I will never serve integrationists regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin.”
Yet from the Pickrick, Maddox sold axe handles for his white customers to swing at blacks trying to eat at his restaurant. A few years after Maddox closed down his restaurant he turned from racist folk hero into the Governor of Georgia.
So when Palin and Jindal say they support the right for Robertson to announce his beliefs, what they are really saying is that they agree with him. However, by respecting his right to insult millions of people, they cowardly avoid making any strong anti-gay statements like Robertson did. The same way Maddox avoided making racist remarks in front of Judge Hooper or the press back in the mid 1960’s.
The conservative movement to a major degree formed because of intolerance for others. In 1964 Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which ended Jim Crow laws established in the Supreme Court case of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) which upheld racial segregation. Upon signing the bill into law, LBJ said that he had just “delivered the South to the Republican Party for a long time to come.”
You can still see Republicans like Palin and Jindal carrying the torch of intolerance passed on by clowns like Lester Maddox and the Ku Klux Klan till this day.

On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States was assassinated while traveling through Dealey Plaza in Dallas at 12:30pm by what appears to have been a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald is said to have been perched in a window on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building and fired three shots at Kennedy as he passed in an open motorcade. Kennedy later died of his injuries at Parkland Hospital. Texas Governor John Connelly was wounded in the attack and survived his injuries.
John F. Kennedy
Since the assassination of Kennedy, many crackpots have come up with some of the most ridiculous hypothesis to explain the circumstances leading up to his death. Some of these crackpots have wasted the taxpayer's money testifying before congress with their witless ideas perpetuating the myth that there were multiple gunmen shooting at the fallen president.
Lee Harvey Oswald
Without debunking every hair-brained idea, simply debunking the multiple gunman myth should help many better understand what happened on that sunny day in Dallas. It appears that the multiple gunman myth is the lynch pin to the idea that Kennedy's death was a conspiracy laid out by dark forces in our federal government.
There has been powerful evidence collected back in 1963 that contradicts the multiple gunmen hypothesis. The bullet wounds to Kennedy's head and neck; Connelly's back and chest; the logistics of Dealey Plaza; plus statements made by Abraham Zapruder after the assassination. Zapruder’s recording of Kennedy’s death made by him with his eight-millimeter camera is probably the greatest piece of evidence in this case since it shows the actual assassination itself.
Kennedy's gunshot wounds came from behind according to autopsy photos where two clear holes can be seen. One hole can be seen on the back of his head and the other by the base of his neck. This is logical considering the logistics of Dealey Plaza. Since there were buildings behind Kennedy's motorcade and not in front, where else could a gunman get into position to shoot him from? A shot from some of the buildings from Kennedy’s left would have put holes on the left side of Kennedy's body. Not the back.
Governor Connelly had an entrance wound in the back. The bullet exited from under his right breast producing a keyhole shaped wound indicating the bullet tumbled inside of his body. Taking into consideration how Connelly was sitting inside of the vehicle, how else could a bullet have entered his body but from behind? The bullet that entered Connelly first entered Kennedy's throat. This can be proven due to the fact that Kennedy can be seen reacting to the shot at the same time Connelly reacts in the Zapruder film.
Lee Harvey Oswald
Back in 1967 CBS had several riflemen fire three rounds and hit a moving target in the same time that Kennedy’s assassin had. A few years ago, the Discovery Channel hired a marksman to duplicate the Dealey Plaza shooting of Kennedy by representing Kennedy and Connelly with ballistic gel. The rifleman was able to duplicate the shots Oswald allegedly fired back in 1963. These tests debunked the idea that the Dealey Plaza shots had to be performed by two gunmen because it was simply too hard for one marksman.
Could a shot have come from the front of the motorcade? If so, then why was the windshield of the vehicle Kennedy was riding in still intact? The intact windshield can be seen in Zapruder’s film.
Zapruder in an interview destroyed the myth of the grassy knoll gunman. Zapruder said that he did not hear anything from the grassy knoll where he was filming and that the shots fired appeared to be the same and not from different gunmen. If there had been a shooter in the grassy knoll, the noise level would have been so loud he could have dropped his eight-millimeter camera as a result. So it appears that the shots that killed the president came from behind as the autopsy photos reveal.
Even the accused but never convicted Lee Harvey Oswald was not remarkable compared to the men who were accused of killing former US Presidents. In 1865, John Wilkes Booth allegedly shot Lincoln in the back of the head at close range during a play. He was apparently disturbed over the Civil War. Booth is said to have conspired with others to murder high-level government officials. Booth was shot to death during his apprehension and the other conspirators were tried and hung.
Charles J. Guiteau was convicted of killing James A. Garfield in 1881 and hung. Guiteau was turned down for a federal appointment. Anarchist Leon Czolgosz was convicted of assassinating William McKinley in 1901 and was electrocuted. He is said to have believed McKinley was the head of a corrupt government.
One piece of evidence said to implicate Oswald as a murderer was a Smith & Wesson .38 Special caliber revolver. This pistol was found on his person when Dallas police arrested him shortly after Kennedy's assassination and shooting death of Dallas police officer Tippit. The revolver was said to have been the weapon that killed the police officer.
ABC Photo: WFAA's Jay Watson, left, and Abraham Zapruder recount their eye-witness account of JFK's
assassination shortly after. Zapruder shot the 8mm film showing the president being murdered.
The other was a Mannlicher Carcano rifle believed to be the rifle used to kill the president was purchased by Oswald and was found by the Dallas Police on the sixth floor of the book depository where Oswald's fingerprints were found on boxes stacked by the window. Oswald's right palm print, according to the FBI was detected on the barrel. The location in which the rifle was located is consistent with the autopsy photos that suggest that the president was shot from behind.
Finally, considering the most fundamental evidence presented by authorities, Zapruder, his film, and his denial that there was no shooter in the grassy knoll, it is clear that the probability of two assassins working in concert with each other to assassinate President Kennedy is not realistic. All of the evidence points to a single gunman as the president’s assassin that may or may not have been influenced by others prior to the shooting.

In recent years, an argument has been brewing over the use of Indian nicknames, mascots and symbology found on jerseys, helmets, banners, and other gear worn by hockey, football, and baseball players. This would include their inebriated fans that can be seen cheering their favorite team from the stands while booing rival team members who receive most valuable player awards as experienced during a recent Chicago Blackhawks playoff.
Currently the Washington Redskins are in the middle of a debate between owner Daniel Snyder and the Oneida Nation from New York State. The Oneida Nation claims that the term "Redskin" is a "racial epithet" and they should change it to something else. Snyder's reply to the accusation was that the term Redskin is a name they have called themselves "for over eight decades" and that it is a "symbol of everything we stand for: strength, courage, pride and respect." Of course Indians have been using their symbols for thousands of years if that means anything.
Snyder claims these are the "same values we know guide the Native Americans and which are embedded throughout their rich history as the original Americans." President Obama commented over the debacle by stating that if he were the owner of a team that had a name that offended a "sizeable group of people," he would "think about changing it."
Attorney for the Washington Redskins, Lanny, J. Davis' responded to the president's comment by stating that Native and non-native Americans polled do not think the name Redskins is offensive.
Davis doesn't seem to understand that eight out of ten Americans are probably ignorant of how bad Native Americans have been treated since European explorers began a long bloody period of conquest which resulted in the near total destruction of Native American people.
In 1864 during the Sand Creek Massacre of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians, children were reportedly scalped by Colonel John Chivington's militia during a struggle to control the great plains of Colorado. Chivingon's excuse for allowing his men to scalp children was that "nits make lice." Over half of the people murdered by Chivington's militia are said to have been women and children.
What is not readily understood here is that the issue is about power and conquest as it has been throughout all of history. A mascot is like a pet or object to bring good luck to a team. Indians depicted by performers doing facsimile war dances prior to a sporting event for the culturally oblivious in the stands to look and say, "Hey look at the cute Indian doing a rain dance....burp." Sporting event spectators under the influence of beer and hot dogs couldn't distinguish one Indian dance from another.
William Deverell's book "Whitewashed Adobe" describes the late 19th century Los Angeles where city boosters put on a promotional parade called "La Fiesta" to bring attention to the developing city. Mexicans and Indians were dressed like primitives while Anglos in the parade wore nice dresses and rode in decorative carriages.
The theme of merchant Max Meyberg's La Fiesta parade was to show how Los Angeles evolved from a primitive land with primitive people to a land developed by sophisticated Anglos. Quakers and others from this time period felt such a racist display was degrading to Mexicans and Indians that participated.
Where the shoe on the other foot how would sports fans and the general population react to a black mascot running around in a coliseum dressed as an aborigine wearing a loin cloth and covered in paint? The Washington Redskins could call themselves the Washington Aborigine's or the Washington Barbarians. The belligerent fans could yell, "Look at the dancing blacks! My they have such talent." How well would that go over with the mainstream press and black activists?
What if football teams adopted Jews as mascots? Can we imagine the comments from the drunken fans in the audience? "Oh look at the cute Jews dancing for us." How long with the Jewish anti-defamation league allow that to happen?
The reason Indians are kept on display like an elephant at the circus or an orca at Seaworld is because rich white owned teams can push around Indians which make up less than 1.2% of the US population with little legal or legislative pull.
Racist team mascots and racists parades are all about the feeding the ego of the conqueror with the humiliation and degradation of the conquered.

Kuma's Ghost Burger:

Kuma's Bathroom Art - Photo's by HarryUSA
Upon a closer examination of the conversation between WLS’s version of the Abbot and Costello show, it became clear that a metal bar called Kuma's Corner at 2900 West Belmont Ave was serving a Ghost Burger with an unblessed Catholic communion wafer coated with a red wine reduction symbolizing the blood of Jesus Christ as ingredients throughout the month of October. The demonic sandwich is dedicated to the hard rock band Ghost. Members of the band Ghost perform dressed as hooded monks while the lead singer is dressed up like a Satanized pope calling out to Lucifer alerting him to their presence on stage. The band’s appearance on stage is so wicked; one day some promoter may encourage their fans to drive over a bus load full of nuns to win free tickets to see them.
Most of the people who called the show were outraged that this restaurant could disrespect Catholics living in Chicago by allowing their customers to chomp on a Eucharist as a form of entertainment. The show’s hosts took the idea further and felt that Kuma’s nihilistic Ghost Burger was disrespectful to all of Christianity and not just Catholics. With all of the hype over the volumes of godlessness happening in Chicago, which is par for the course considering the hundreds of people that are murdered here each year, a visit to Kuma’s was in order. After all, how could Hell we worse than the mayhem going on in Chicago’s neighborhoods? Hell for a change may even be more peaceful.

Upon entering Kuma’s Corner, a polite blonde receptionist dressed in leather was welcoming and seating customers. Mounds of smoke rose from the grill while short order cooks filled the demand for the infamous Ghost Burger. The bartender said that they had been getting lots of coverage over the wafer being put on the Ghost Burger. Her facial expression suggested that she didn’t see what all of the fuss was over. The appearance of the clean cut 25-35 year old patrons appeared nonchalant as well. In fact, there wasn’t a person in the place that seemed the least bit amused or offended by Kuma’s communal offering. The overly demonized Ghost Burger itself seemed as innocent as the customers consuming it. The Ghost Burger came loaded with a 10 oz. patty, a slow braised goat shoulder, aged white cheddar, Ghost chile aioli, red wine reduction, and a Communion wafer garnish. The taste was definitely beyond the culinary range of a typical burger. However this was appropriate considering the fact that there was a communal garnish wedged in between the meat and bun causing some Chicago Catholics to turn blue over it.
The overall dining experience at Kuma’s was good. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere at Kuma’s Corner was cozy. Asmodeus was nowhere in sight as you may have expected after listening to the boorish WLS morning show which overreacted to Kuma’s publicity stunt. If anything, the fact that people could causally eat such a concoction in public where in the past there would have been outrage shows that Kuma’s Corner is in no position to damage religion. Considering the way Christians and other groups have treated gays, scientists, and women, the backlash has caused a growth in atheism, science, gay rights, and women’s liberation. To some degree the Ghost Burger itself is merely a symbol of the people’s indifference or rejection of religion and its degenerate nature.

One of the richest, brightest, and most successful of all the TV and movie personalities in the United States has got to be, beyond a shadow of doubt, Oprah Winfrey. Her ambition, style, grace, charm, and good nature are paralleled by few in the broadcasting business. No other talk show host in recent memory has demonstrated the ability to shove their foot in their mouth while giving their personal views on some of the most controversial events in recent US History without passing out due to a lack of oxygen like Winfrey has. In regards to this prestigious talent, she is truly a master of her craft.

Recently on the MSNBC Morning Joe show, Winfrey was sharing her insightful view of the George Zimmerman case. Our majestic lady of the airwaves equated the 2013 Zimmerman self-defense case with that of the Emmett Till kidnaping-murder case of 1955. This viewpoint was aired for millions to watch. No doubt they were as speechless as audiences were back in the 1920’s when Zip the Pinhead made many public appearances at freak shows across America. It may be better understood as to why some people were flabbergasted by Winfrey’s astute remark by reviewing both cases.
Emmett Till was visiting his uncle Moses Write in Money Mississippi in the spring of 1955 right after the murder of Reverend George Lee and Lamar Smith who, according to PBS, were involved in voter registration drives. Racists living in Money had no desire to have blacks participate in the republican process of electing officials, so they killed these men to defeat their efforts and to terrorize the rest of the black community away from voting. In August, Till went shopping at the Bryant's Grocery store on the 24th where some say he whistled at Carolyn Bryant who owned the store with her husband Roy. On the 28th Till was allegedly kidnapped from his uncle’s home by Roy Bryant and his half-brother J. Milam. Till was beaten, shot in the head, wrapped up in barbed wire with a cotton gin fan and pushed into the Tallahatchie River. His body was recovered on the 31st. On the 3rd of September, Till’s mother Mamie allowed her son’s casket to be opened at his funeral so that mourners could see what happened to her son. Photographs of Till’s horribly disfigured body were carried globally in many publications like Jett Magazine, the Chicago Defender, and the daily French newspaper Le Monde. Bryant and Milam were acquitted of kidnapping and murdering Till on the 23rd by an all-white jury. The jury had deliberated for just over an hour.
Equating the Till kidnap and murder case with the George Zimmerman self-defense case leaves less lofty citizens in a fog as to what reason, research, or scientific study could have aided our queen of the airwaves to conclude that these two cases were both the same. Zimmerman’s encounter with Martin was only for a few minutes and within this time period, Zimmerman was punched in the face then forced to endure his head being banged into the ground. It appears that Zimmerman drew and used his weapon against Martin when it was clear that he could not stop him from attacking. History does not recall Till attacking anyone in Money Mississippi back in 1955. So how could the Zimmerman case be an example of blatant racism as the Till case was? So far the Department of Justice has not released any findings to warrant hate crime charges to be brought against Zimmerman. Yet according to Winfrey-logic, Zimmerman is as much of a killer-racist as Bryant and Milam were.
Mere mortals may never see the light of truth as Winfrey does from her lofty aristocratic position as billion dollar talk show guru. The rest of the population will just have to accept her judgment while the reputation of a man who was defending himself remains destroyed in the eyes of millions of her cognizant followers.
