Breaking News: Zimmerman Molested a Six-Year-Old Girl (When he was Eight)
George Zimmerman's cousin came forward to denounce him to prosecutors as a serial groper. The first incident took place when the two children were lying under a blanket while they watched TV. Other episodes occurred at widely spaced intervals when the families got together.
The final incident happened when the girl -- a girl no longer -- was 20. She drove over to Zimmerman's house, knowing that he was alone there, agreed to get a massage from him, lay down on a bed, and then got upset when George tried to segue the massage into something less PG-rated.
Judging by the twenty-one minutes or so of her recorded testimony, which Prosecutor Angela Corey decided to release on Monday, the cousin seems to have been traumatized by the encounters. But she is nearly as upset about her own passivity. She never said no, never refused to accompany her family or pleaded an illness (often the clue that something's wrong), and never told her parents.
Earlier, the cousin had informed prosecutors that Zimmerman was a racist. This was red meat for Corey's team. What she actually claimed, however, was the George and his family liked only African-Americans who "act white." She didn't explain what that meant. She was also unable to describe a specific instance of Zimmerman's racism. Her statements contradicted an FBI report that found no evidence of racism, after interviews with 30 individuals.
It's obvious now that the woman's earlier testimony was the result of animus. But don't expect the media to register this. With few exceptions, they continue to salivate over any hint of "racism."
Exactly what part is "racism" supposed to have played in the minutes between Zimmerman's phone call to the police and his shooting of Trayvon Martin in self-defense? Describing Martin as wandering about aimlessly, looking as if he was on drugs? He was. Following him for 15 seconds until the dispatcher advised him to stop? If the media is interested in looking into racist incidents in the months before February 26, and since, there are a lot to choose from.
Unfortunately, they all involve gangs of Blacks targeting Whites.
The cousin's testimony about George's groping is irrelevant. Zimmerman is not on trial for child abuse or sexual harassment. The media's trumpeting it is just one more attempt to blacken his character-oops-to malign him, and to try to make sure that he doesn't receive a fair trial.
