When George faced the murder charge, it was highly recommended and smart to ask his friends and family to be silent about themselves and the family. No one advocating for George, wanted anything to be used and spun to help the prosecutor convict George.
That threat is now passed. Thankfully, the defense team prevailed and I know the online community was a big help in that.
We have had no recognition from the defense team about our collective contribution. Perhaps they still feel the time isn’t right to acknowledge our help in a public way.
I invite the Zimmerman family and team defense, to join the online discussion here as we brainstorm the next steps for you. Is there anything we can collectively do to ensure another American citizen isn’t railroaded as we witnessed in George’s case?
Even if you just want to say hi and thank those who gave of their time to help this case or you want to start a movement to get better reporting, corrupt lawyers out of the courtroom and prosecutors who abuse their power out of control, join us and let’s get started. If it’s not a good idea, please tell us why.
Again, if you’ve read here at all, out of respect for all who participate please do not intentionally mislead us on your relationship to the case.
I ask that while politics and religion may influence your beliefs and attitudes, please work hard to keep those topics out of the discussion. The focus here isn’t about either of those topics.
Please join the conversation. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org for anyone who needs to contact me privately.
