Wow, What A Dream!

June 9, 2012 |  by  |  Blog

Peeps, I’m not exactly sure what happened, but I had a strange dream earlier today. I don’t have too many dreams, but this one was a doozy as it bore no semblance to reality as I know it.

All I remember is sitting at my computer reading my friend Vicki’s latest article and I came to a part that said HERE, in red, indicating a link:

I clicked on it, and the next thing I knew, I was in a TREEHOUSE with some dude dressed up like Uncle Sam, pointing his finger at me!

He started saying things that confused the heck out of me. For one, if I was following him correctly, he was trying to say it wasn’t true that SPD’s Investigator Serino wanted to charge Zimmerman with Manslaughter:

Even said the media and those wanting the truth shouldn’t say it!

I’m sure anyone dressed up in an Uncle Sam suit is a great guy and all, so maybe he doesn’t know that 3 days before that interview he referenced with the Sentinel, Investigator Christopher Serino signed a notarized 13 page statement that said, in part:

Based upon the facts and circumstances contained in the narrative, I believe there exists probable cause for issuance of a capias charging George Michael Zimmerman with Manslaughter.

Read the entire 13 pages and see if I’m reading it correctly, starting with page 35 at:

By now, I was getting worried about being in that Treehouse, but before I could turn around good, I stumbled across this:

Does that really say Zimmerman’s call ended 3 minutes and 5 seconds [3:05] after it began? See what I mean about confusing? Even my friend Vicki, who doesn’t agree with much of what I have to say, agrees that call lasted for [4:06] according to her comment under my last post.

I tell you how I see it, between this Uncle Sam dude whacking [1:01] off the end of the call, and the SPD’s timeline whacking [1:38] off the beginning, between the two of em they might just get Zimmerman’s timeline issues resolved.

I don’t mind telling you, by now, I’m ready to get out of this Treehouse, but before I could find the door I ran across an image showing the body location in a spot almost EXACTLY where one of the two places Frank Taaffe had said it was!

In all fairness to the Uncle Sam dude, this picture seems to have been posted on April 17, a month before the doc dump, but it does serve to point out one of the very real problems with Zimmerman’s story to LE and his pals. Now that we KNOW where the body was found, we can see it’s quite a ways from Zimmerman’s statements of being attacked “where the sidewalks meet”:

In any event, I wanted out of that Treehouse! I was concerned Taaffe might even be up there somewhere and it was time for me to go. My head was spinning with what I had seen and read. Seems as if I even read somewhere that it was only 100 yards from the mailboxes at the clubhouse to Trayvon’s temporary residence, even though Google Earth was telling me something considerably different!

Before I could find the door or stumble across anything else that I recall, my phone rang and woke me up, Thank Goodness! No matter my confusion in this Treehouse, I left there with the firm conviction that Vicki is correct about media bias in this case. It comes in all shapes and forms trying to put their own agenda’s spin through slanted, and ofttimes, false information. All sides seem to be guilty and none are innocent.

With that in mind, I’ll make Vicki a promise. I’ll stand with you regarding media bias. I’ll even march along side you in any media bias parades, but you’ve got to make me a promise somewhat like Brer Rabbit asked of Brer Fox so many years ago in 1881:

Roast me! Hang me! Do whatever you please,

said Brer Rabbit.

Only please, Brer Fox, please don’t throw me in that briar patch or TREEHOUSE again!


  1. I’m not sure what your point is.

    Fact: Serino nor anyone else in the department wanted to charge Zimmerman THAT NIGHT.

    Fact: Serino filled out the capias on March 13 but never actually filed it.

    Fact: Three days later on March 16, Serino’s quotes to the Sentinel make it clear why the capias was not filed.

    What am I missing?

    • I’m not sure what your point is.

      Fact: Serino nor anyone else in the department wanted to charge Zimmerman THAT NIGHT.

      Fact: Serino filled out the capias on March 13 but never the did not act on it.

      Fact: Three days later on March 16, Serino’s quotes to the Sentinel make it clear why the SA never acted on it. Lack of evidence.

      What am I missing?

      • A source in the Seminole County State Attorney’s office told the Miami Herald, “We get capias warrants all the time. That doesn’t mean we file charges right away. We investigate to see if it’s appropriate. That’s the responsible thing to do.

  2. I stopped reading your article right after you tied to back up the claim that Chris Serino wanted a manslaughter charge the day after by pointing to a document that was signed and dated (which is clearly visible in the image you posted) on March 13th. Last I heard the shooting happened not on March 12th but February 26th, 15 days before this document. Also, Investigator Serino has told us why that document exists, he got a second opinion from SA Wolfinger. I do not follow that tree house and I’m not a conservative but even I know who Andrew Breitbart is, based on your comments I assume you’re just now getting into the journalism scene?

  3. The timetable you are lambasting is from a Wagist article published on 3/12 as clearly stated by the treehouse. If you go to the Wagist and see the time table in its proper context you will notice that timetable refers to a specific youtube video that is also posted, right above it conveniently enough.

    It appears you put more thought into your snarky cartoons than the content of this article.

  4. Papa, Obviously it is not possible for you to post your opinion, without an awful lot of backlash, or snark responses. I can’t begin to understand why, altho, what has happened was exactly as I thought it would be.

    The State of Florida, has a charge on their books (based on the blog, prior to yours), for one to wear a hood is a criminal act, yet packing a gun in your pants is perfectly legal? My lily white son and the rest of his lily white friends(and some minorities) on their expensive campus wear hoodies…that’s been a big style for years. Thank God his university is in another state, where the college nor the manufacturers got the memo from Florida that wearing a sweatshirt with a hoodie is a criminal act. I am most thankful no-one decided my nerd son was a thug, when he has walked back to his fraternity with a Coke.

    Gun control vs no control, black vs white, liberal vs conservative… will never be resolved in my life time, regardless of how naively i believed it could…my fear is for our son. And yes apparently based on Florida laws, we did raise him wrong, because if anyone were to attack him walking home, he was taught to yell, scream and protect himself in every manner to his ability. As was our daughter.

    I applaud your effort in the blogs you have written, which in my opinion were non-emotional and straight forward,with absolutely no blame, however I have come to accept, this story or article, or in reality, the death of a child, has too many agendas for too many people. And I find that very sad.

  5. I’m slightly confused too.

    Important part consider here is the LAW. It is entirely irrelevant if the investigating officer thought Zimmerman should be charged with manslaughter and if he did, when. They were trying to figure it out in the first few days & even weeks! Be aware, in FL, the burden to arrest & charge in this type of incident is REVERSED!


    Fla Stat. 776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.—
    (2) A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force …but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.

    Critical language in the law: “probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful” is unlike charging with murder where they ahve a reverse burden of probable cause.

    The SPD or Seminole County Prosecutor Norm Wolfinger couldn’t arrest Zimmerman UNLESS or UNTIL PROBABLE CAUSE had been established his use of force WASN’T justified.

    I don’t know about you, but I don’t like rushing to judgment. One thing that really bothers me about this case is SOOOOOO many people opining on this case have not read FL Law.

    Just sayin.

  6. I am taking two month vacation from Chemo & an actually thinking some what clearer..This is one comment I have to make..Have been on many boards with Papa & have never known him to be anything but truthful,he has no problem in speaking his mind,nothing about the man is fake..Would bet good money no one could blog better than him if he put his mind to it.Who would want to get in a blogging war? What would it accomplish? The Zimmerman case of guilty or not is very simple to me.He should have stayed in the dang truck.This would have never went down, had he simply obeyed orders.So as far as I am concerned he is guilty as charged..That is my opinion..Like it or not!!

  7. The got this case 90% right from day one. They back up most every blog with facts and direct quotes. Of course they made “mistakes” along the way, but only due to misinformation from MSM. I don’t read anyone’s blog or news articles in order for someone out there to make my mind up for me, I just want to read/listen to a few sides so I can decide what makes sense to me once I add any facts I can find myself in documents and from the horses mouths.

    I think Serino buckled under pressure from the family and their lawyers, he wanted to put the burden on the State, and then he looks like the good guy. Just my opinion.
