One must never set up a murder. They must happen unexpectedly, as in life ~ Alfred Hitchcock (8/13/1899 to 4/29/1980) an English film director and producer who pioneered many techniques in the suspense and psychological thriller genres. After a successful career in British cinema in both silent films and early talkies, billed as England's best director, Hitchcock moved to Hollywood in 1939 and became a U.S. citizen in 1955.
Note: This is just a theory (all hypothetical). I'm not saying I know this is what happened at all. This post is PURE speculation. I decided to go with it based on the number of replies my last post on the subject got (which is more than any post I've written before). A commentary as (purposefully) inflammatory as this one should do even better!
Second degree is all the prosecution is going for, but I think the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman could have been premeditated. I'm not saying I think Zimmerman wanted to kill Trayvon specifically; just that he was looking to murder an unarmed Black youth. What I think happened was that Zimmerman was frustrated because the police department wouldn't accept him, so he decided to do something to get famous by making himself into a hero. Which many Conservatives think of him as... going by the comments left in response to my prior post on this subject.
Part two of GZ's plan would be to get off scott-free by claiming he shot his victim in self defense. We know that almost worked. The police had already decided to let him go (not do an investigation AT ALL). It wasn't until the Black community and the Left leaning media outlets (like MSNBC) started protesting that the police finally realized they'd actually have to do their job!
But all was not lost! All GZ needed to do was claim self-defense, be acquitted, and then the fame (and money that comes with it) would all be his! Why do I think this? I think it because Zimmerman lied about being aware of the "stand your ground" law in Florida. He feigned ignorance when asked if he knew about it prior to the shooting by that a-hole Hannity.
That is why his lawyers quit (he has a different legal team than the one he started out with). It was Zimmerman himself who contacted the producers of Hannity's Fox Nooz show (they didn't contact him). He didn't consult with his lawyers because they would have advised him not to give any interviews! But the attention and fame seeking Zimmerman disobeyed their advice (didn't even ask for it because he knew what they'd say) because of his desire to be in the spotlight. He also knew he needed to stir up the ire of the racist community. Then they'd rally to his side and eagerly offer him mucho dinero to help pay for his defense... and enrich him after he was found not guilty (or so he thought/still thinks).
We also know Zim lied about the severity of his "beating". The medical examiner said she did not believe Zim's head was slammed repeatedly against the concrete as he claimed. Because the injuries he suffered were "very insignificant" (her words). The testimony of Dr. Valerie Rao, the Jacksonville FL medical examiner for Duval, Clay and Nassau counties was that "the injuries were not life-threatening". Zim exaggerated the number of times Trayvon "slammed" his head on the concrete because he KNEW his actions (shooting and killing Trayvon) were not justified!
Zim lied to cover-up the truth; the truth that he stalked Trayvon with the INTENT to kill him! He was angry that the police department had rejected him, so he decided to go for fame (and the money that comes with fame). After the break-ins by "Black youths" he thought back to those college courses he took where "stand your ground" was discussed. NBC News reports that Zim "received high marks in a criminal litigation course that touched on Florida state law regarding when it's appropriate to use self-defense and the so-called stand your ground statute".
This is proof Zim lied to Hannity and knew about "stand your ground". Not only that, but "a former professor of Zimmerman's who gave Zimmerman an A in criminal litigation [said Zimmerman was] one of the better students in the class". The professor (who testified at the trial) also said the "2010 course addressed criminal law and procedure, as well as self-defense".
So, my question is... is this when the seed of the idea to murder someone for fame and money was first planted in Zim's sick diseased mind? Surely it didn't occur to him at the time, but AFTER the police wouldn't hire him, AFTER he joined the neighborhood watch, and AFTER the burglaries that were committed by "Black youths"... was it THEN that a bitter GZ decided he would stalk and kill the next Black youth he encountered and claim self defense?
Things may not have gone entirely according to plan, as Zim thought he could get off with no trial by claiming "stand your ground". At first it looked like the plan was working, until that damn Liberal media demanded the police actually do their job (the nerve)! Now that he's on trial his lawyers have decided to go with self defense instead of "stand your ground". Why? Turns out there is a reason. According to the same NBC article, "if Zimmerman is acquitted, the defense could ask the judge to decide whether he deserves the immunity which would protect him from a civil lawsuit".
This shows that Zim is thinking this out. He remembers that OJ Simpson was found not guilty at the conclusion of his murder trial, but then sued by Ronald Goldman's family for wrongful death and lost. The jury in that trial declared that OJ should pay Ronald Goldman's family 33.5 million dollars. Zimmerman does not want that happening to him, which is why he didn't go with "stand your ground". This is why I think that, if any of this is even remotely true, George Zimmerman is one evil and devious SOB.
Other lies of GZ include "how much money he had when his bond was originally set in April. Prosecutors say he had $135,000 at the time Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, told the court, under oath, that they were indigent". Also, and I believe this shows premeditation, GZ (before the shooting) lied and reported his passport as stolen. This allowed him to obtain a second passport. Then when the judge ordered him to turn over his passport he gave him the one he said was "stolen" (holding back the replacement).
The court looked into the matter of his passports, discovered that a second one was issued, and ordered him to turn it over. This makes me wonder, was GZ planning for contingencies? Maybe he only thought the passport was stolen, but then why not turn them both over when the judge asked for his passport? Or, at least why not turn over the second one? As far as premeditation goes, this is very damning in my opinion.
Of course we will never know, as this theory concerns thoughts in Zimmerman's mind. Thoughts (if he had them) that he never articulated to anyone or wrote down. And, the prosecution went for second degree, so being convicted of first degree murder isn't even on the table. But I say the possibility is very real that George Zimmerman intentionally murdered Trayvon Martin in cold blood and therefore should be facing the death penalty for his depraved act. So what do you think? Is this theory of mine remotely plausible? Please comment and let me know if you agree or disagree.
