Overview

His friends called George Zimmerman "Tugboat," the one who always came to the rescue. An Hispanic-American civil rights activist, he helped a black homeless man find justice. He helped guide two black teens through life. He helped a terrified mother secure her house. He helped his wary neighbors secure their community. In If I Had A Son, Jack Cashill tells the inside story of how, as the result of a tragic encounter with troubled seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, the media turned Tugboat into a white racist vigilante, "the most hated man in America." If I Had A Son tells how for the first time in the history of American jurisprudence, a state government, the US Department of Justice, the White House, the major media, the entertainment industry and the vestiges of the civil rights movement conspired to put an innocent man in prison for the rest of his life. All that stood between Zimmerman and lifetime internment were two folksy local lawyers, their aides, and some very dedicated citizen journalists, most notably an unpaid handful of truth seekers at the blogging collective known as the Conservative Treehouse. If I Had A Son takes an inside look at this unprecedented battle formation. If I Had A Son tells the story too of the six stalwart female jurors who ignored the enormous pressure mounting around them and preserved America's belief in its judicial system. In the wake of the verdict, skeptics in the Martin camp claimed that the State of Florida did not play to win. In the course of his research, Cashill came across some startling evidence which suggests that those skeptics may indeed be right. If I Had A Son is the one and only comprehensive look at the most politically significant trial in decades. What George Zimmerman learned in the course of his ordeal is that although he supported Obama, and lobbied for Obama, and voted for Obama at least once, in the final analysis he did not look enough like Obama to be his son, and that made all the difference.

    Highly recommended

    Jack Cashill has done it again with this book as he exposes the distortions, the half truths, and the flat out lying as presented by the "mainstream" media. This also includes the Jessie Jackson's, the Al Sharpton's, President Obama and the Attorney General. If this had been a "black on black" or "black on white" killing, the only place where this would have been mentioned would have been in the obituaries. The book is well written as Mr. Cashill stays on the subject as outlined in the book's subtitle.

    A Must Read!

    Thank you Jack Cahill. In all of my life I have never seen a violation of Civil Rights. The case never should have went to trial and Angela Correy should be disbarred. They never had a case and they knew it and THAT is why it took so long to charge him. And the President of all people, should have done what he took an oath to do-upheld this nations laws and institutions but he did not. He interfered with the judicial process and contributed to the race baiting. Jack Cahill gives us a very well written and impeccably researched account of how this small town shooting became the biggest legal travesty of our time.

    Of course this book is about the trial of George Zimmerman, but

    Of course this book is about the trial of George Zimmerman, but it also or maybe more so about the using of GZ as a pawn in a political power extravaganza. For those not familiar with the trial, Cashill goes over the original incident and evidence finely and carefully. There is probably no better source. The politics is layered. The players are the BGI (Black Grievance Industry), the media, the lawyers, and the public all motivated by different shades of reality. The one constant among them is the need to preserve their own inner sense of reality. A few actors attempt to be objective, not not often. More likely you will find someone like Sharpton on his eternal crusade to slam evil whitey. Or a media type pleading civil rights for a mere child toting candy and soda even when the evidence shows the "kid" pounded a person's head into concrete and threatened to kill that person. Attorneys such as Angela Corey took the smart political position bending to the will of the mob. Prosecutor de la Rionda has his own issues with race. It's a political play, a psychological play, and it will continue in the future.

    Jack Cashill accurately and thoroughly explains the malicious prosecution of my son, George Zimmerman. This is certainly a book every American should read. Further, the book should outrage every individual previously believing the media's totally false representation of the events of February 26, 2012.

    Who's next?

    Zimmerman keeps getting in trouble, it will be interesting to see who he kills next time.......or if it is him that is killed. I don't want to see anyone get hurt or killed, but I feel the day is coming. Zimmerman has serious problems and is VERY dangerous. Zimmerman: Be cool and get help. Public: Watch out for Zimmerman.

    Seriously B&N? You'rej selling a book that turns George Zimmerman into a hero? He's an angry, misogynistic murderer. The only people who will read this book are right-wing apologists who think it's fine to gun down a black kid because he was wearing a hoodie.
