One and Done? ©

          After a virtually all-white, all female jury in Seminole County, FL acquitted George Zimmerman of murder and manslaughter charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, Rev. Al Sharpton vowed that he would spur and stage marches around more than one hundred federal courthouses.  So far, no one has accused him of breaching his promise.

          Of course, his promise was not a demand.  Since the venues were courthouses, he sought to infer that the U.S. Justice Department should commence a civil rights prosecution against Zimmerman.  His promise of interim action fell far short of making a demand, however.  A demand ends with “or else”.

          After the past week-end of marches, he scheduled a “three-day retreat” in Florida, the scene of the crime.  At the end of the retreat, he would announce a game plan.  On this past Thursday, he made no new announcement.  The acquittal of George Zimmerman was not an intervening circumstance.  The already planned “March on Washington” on August 24, 2013 was still intact. 

          This is Sharpton’s modus operandi.  He starts or highlights racial fires for the media and he waters them down before any white person suffers an injury.  In the meantime, he fans the flames in order for a media outlet to enjoy top ratings. This is converted into advertising dollars.  He heads the Madison Avenue Initiative and for a good reason.

          If you are awaiting further instructions on securing justice for Trayvon Martin, you may locate Sharpton at a five-star hotel and “living large”.  His living quarters are a far cry from those of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. who was assassinated at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, TN.   According to Sharpton’s materialistic standard, this was a “flea bag” hotel.

          Sharpton loves his white enemies and he despises any Black person who will stand his or her ground in the face of white supremacists selling “wolf” tickets.  This is why he admires Rev. Jesse L. Jackson and he has problems with the mild-mannered Booker T. Washington who left Blacks with Tuskegee Institute as an example of his legacy.

          On January 12, 1991, a white supremacist stabbed Sharpton in his chest and near his heart in Bensonhurst.  United African Movement was demanding the prosecution of all the mob members responsible for the death of Yusef Hawkins. Joseph Fama had already received a sentence of thirty-three years to life by a jury in Brooklyn Supreme Court.  UAM was responsible for this relatively stiff sentence.

          Sharpton’s assailant was prosecuted and convicted of stabbing him. At the assailant’s sentencing, Sharpton made a surprise appearance but instead of delivering an impact statement, “he got on his knees” and begged for mercy for the white assailant.  Sharpton was also opposed to harming Zimmerman under the white man’s version of natural law. 

            The doctrine of stare decisis controls litigation in American jurisprudence. Under the doctrine of stare decisis, prior precedent should control the outcome of future litigation.  This works in theory but it fails in practice.  Race is the determinative factor in the application of the doctrine of stare decisis.

          Yankel Rosenbaum was a Jew who was walking on a street in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.  Allegedly, Lemrick Nelson, a descendant of enslaved Africans, confronted Rosenbaum and stabbed him.  The Jewish community was outraged and demanded justice or “an eye for an eye”.

          Lemrick Nelson was indicted for murder and had to stand trial in Brooklyn Supreme Court.  Whites saw a slam dunk.  The jury saw it differently and Nelson was acquitted of all charges.  The Jewish community and its politicians refused to take “no” for an answer and required the U.S. Department of Justice to be “creative”.

          Lemrick Nelson was indicted, tried and convicted of violating the civil rights of Yankel Rosenbaum.  The federal judge threw the book at Nelson even though Rosenbaum was actually the victim of medical malpractice.  This was the cause of death and not any civil rights violation.

          Sharpton is now suffering amnesia. A Jewish caravan had actually run over young Gavin Cato in Crown Heights.  This recklessness or wantonness sparked the rebellion in Crown Heights.  Sharpton accompanied me to Israel to serve legal papers on the driver of the vehicle that killed Cato.  Rosenbaum was killed amid the rebellion.  Sharpton refuses to engage in a comparative analysis.

          Anyone who engages in comparative analysis between Lemrick Nelson and George Zimmerman can easily and readily conclude that the prosecution of Zimmerman under federal civil rights statutes would be far easier than the prosecution of Nelson under the same laws especially since the cause of death of Rosenbaum was medical malpractice”.  The hospital had to compensate the estate of Yankel Rosenbaum.

          The U.S. Department of Justice justified the prosecution of Nelson on the theory that Nelson had impeded Rosenbaum’s constitutional right to travel.  Of course, an enslaved African enjoyed no right to travel and Trayvon Martin is a descendant of enslaved Africans.  By refusing to prosecute George Zimmerman for civil rights violations, the Obama Administration is sanctioning the holding in Dred Scott.       

          The doctrine of stare decisis requires the prosecution of Zimmerman for civil rights violations unless the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment fails to apply to descendants of enslaved Africans.  To add insult to injury, the original intent of civil rights statutes was for the protection of descendants of enslaved Africans.

           The inability of Trayvon Martin to travel from his home to a 7-11 store and back without being stopped by a white vigilante is a “badge of slavery” and offends the Thirteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Civil rights statutes were enacted, more than a century ago, to stop the Ku Klux Klan from harassing Blacks on public streets and highways.

          Dred Scott addressed the issue of the right of slaveowners to travel with their “slaves” to other states and territories without losing full title to them. The right to travel was recognized in the Bible.  Moses petitioned Pharaoh to “let my people go”. The right to travel is also implicit in Article IV, section 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

          In the murder of Trayvon Martin, Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law is actually a “red herring”.  The right to travel under the U.S. Constitution preempts a racist, state law and the U.S. Justice Department should have been “biting at the bit” to prosecute Zimmerman.  His actions clearly violate federal laws independent of the proposed “2013 March on Washington”.

          Sharpton is up to his old tricks.  He operates a protection racket.  This is racketeering in Florida v. Zimmerman but the federal government allows him to sell-out his people.  This is in the best interest of national security.  The “war on terrorism” started in 1865 with Blacks as the victims.  Now, the “war on terrorism” enjoys diversity for both perpetrators and victims.
