George Zimmerman Suing Pocahontas and Mayor Pete for Defamation in the Trayvon Martin Case

Published

on

The Hill reported that George Zimmerman is suing Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg for comments they made about Trayvon Martin’s death.

Zimmerman garnered controversy in 2012 when he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense after he was brutally assaulted.

The altercation was initiated when Zimmerman followed Martin on the suspicion that Martin was scoping the neighborhood for a potential robbery attempt. Martin opted to escalate the situation when Zimmerman confronted him, which compelled Zimmerman to use lethal force once it became clear that Martin was savagely pummeling him.

Newsweek reported that the lawsuit accuses the two Democratic presidential candidates of defaming Zimmerman by attributing Martin’s death to “fear” or “gun violence.”

The suit centers on two tweets the candidates posted, which included accusations of “white supremacy” and “racism.”

“My heart goes out to [Martin’s mother] @SybrinaFulton and Trayvon’s family and friends. He should still be with us today. We need to end gun violence and racism. And we need to build a world where all of our children-especially young Black boys-can grow up safe and free,” Warren tweeted.

“Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today. How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear?” Buttigieg said in another Tweet.

“The only ‘fear’ Zimmerman experienced, as established in the 2013 trial and well-covered in the media, was in the context of Zimmerman believing he might go unconscious and die from the repeated beating of his head against the sidewalk pavement or by choking to death from the blood going down his throat due to his broken nose during the beating by Martin,” Zimmerman’s attorney responded in court documents. These court documents accuse the two candidates of pursuing a “political agenda to garner votes in the black community.”

Zimmerman argued that he shot Martin in self-defense.

He ended up not being found guilty of second-degree murder in the Martin case in 2013, which received national coverage.

Contrary to the mainstream media’s portrayal of Martin as an innocent young man, Martin had a list of suspensions in high school and was suspected of robbery in one of the suspensions, although Martin never faced criminal charges.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
