Truth spreading to the mainstream

Things are looking good for my prediction of Monday night that within two to seven days, the anti-Zimmerman voices will fall silent, similar to what happened with past orchestrated liberal lies like the Tawana Brawley-Al Sharpton accusations and the Duke lacrosse accusations. Every time I go online now, I see another article in a mainstream liberal venue giving the Zimmerman side of the case. The latest, entitled “Rumors in Trayvon Martin case abound, but here are facts,” is a column in the Seattle Times by none other than Rene Stutzman of the Orlando Sentinel—the very reporter who on Monday got sources in the Sanford police to risk their jobs in order to tell him what Zimmerman told police on the night of Trayvon Martin’s death, resulting in the fullest version of Zimmerman’s account. In the Seattle Times column, in response to the popular belief that “Police should have simply arrested Zimmerman and let a judge sort it out,” Stutzman explains to the hyper-liberal readers of Seattle:

Zimmerman has not been arrested because he told police he acted in self-defense, and then-Chief Lee said police did not have probable cause. Florida Statute 776.032 expressly prohibits police from arresting someone who had a reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily harm. Police may investigate, the statute says, “but the agency may not arrest the person” without probable cause
