The headline for this blog calls this the George Zimmerman case, not the Trayvon Martin case. The left wing media has turned this case into a circus.
What is going on?
Where does this even start?
What has come out in the last couple of days is a far different picture than the media spin that started when this case became public. In this case, it is literally the pictures. The primary photos the media has been using is a photo of Martin that is several years old, where he looks like he is twelve and a mug shot like photo of an unsmiling Zimmerman.
While the photos have been making the rounds, new photos have shown up that change the media meme. Instead of being the fresh-faced small teenager, more current photos of Trayvon Martin make him look more like a thug and there is now a new photo out of George Zimmermann showing him smiling and in a suit and tie.
The media narrative that Zimmerman was some kind of racist cop wannabe who simply executed Trayvon Martin has started unraveling. Turns out, according to witnesses and the physical evidence, Trayvon Martin hit George Zimmermann so hard that he broke his nose then started pounding his head into the concrete.
The race hucksters have been out using the Trayvon Martin case, including having Trayvon Martin’s parents in Washington, on Capitol Hill complaining that racial profiling caused Trayvon Martin’s death.
No, it looks like Trayvon Martin starting a fight caused his death.
While there seems to be no ramifications for those who want to lynch George Zimmerman, any negative comments about Trayvon Martin are immediately attacked.
No one is doing anything about the New Black Panther Party soliciting money to have George Zimmerman kidnapped or threatening harm to him. They’ve basically put a $1 Million bounty on his head.
All of those acts are crimes under both state and federal laws. Where is Barack Obama? While he is off thinking that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin, he’s too busy to call for calm and justice for George Zimmerman. Where are Eric Holder and the Justice Department? They are too busy trying to obstruct Congress on the Fast and Furious project.
Spike Lee tweeted George Zimmerman’s address for the world and asked people to retweet it. Presumably he hoped people would show up at Zimmerman’s house and cause trouble. The only problem is the address Lee tweeted belongs to an elderly couple and they are now living in terror.
There has been no apology from Lee nor has he taken it off his twitter feed.
On the other side, New Orleans Police Officer Jason Girior wrote on Facebook, “Act like a thug, die like one.” New Orleans Police Chief Ronal Serpas immediately suspended Girior. Serpas is the former Police Chief in Nashville who was referred to by citizens and Nashville Police Officers as “Chief Dumass.”
Just outside of Nashville, a suburban police officer posted an image on Facebook, pointing out the media bias in the photos the media has chosen to use. The left wing Gannett-owned Nashville newspaper wasted no time in printing a story calling for the officer to be disciplined for offering an opinion that is not politically correct.
Perhaps the most alarming part of this case are comments coming from politicians in the Party of Treason. Shelia Jackson Lee called for Zimmerman to be arrested so there would be calm in the community.
The Constitution only allows someone to be arrested on a showing of probable cause that a crime has been committed. Perhaps she would also want him convicted and executed on the same grounds.
Despite the ranting from the left wing and the race hucksters, this case is looking more and more like a case of self-defense. Despite the whining of Martin’s parents that he was “profiled,” and that is what caused his death; the proof now seems very convincing that Trayvon Martin started a fight and left George Zimmerman with no other choice but to defend himself.
This case is starting to look a whole lot more like a case from 25 years ago: The Tawana Brawley case. Unfortunately for George Zimmerman, with the government we have in place now, he is unlikely to have his rights protected like the innocent victims of Brawley and the race hucksters of 25 years ago.
I have always said if you are out after 11pm, you are probably up to no good or was just up to no good.
Right. Anyone out after 11 pm deserves to be shot.
Is that what I said? I said up to no good. Please learn to read and comprehend English before you post you thoughts.
I disagree. Curtains go up for shows at 8:00. 3 hours later many people go out for a late dinner after the show. the whole country doesn't turn in by 9:00 pm. Would you force a curfew for us?
I didn't realize the time this occurred was at 3:00 a.m. Wonder why parents would send their son to the store to buy candy for his younger sibling at such a time?
This kid should not have been out that late, period. Talk bout good parenting hmmm thats the prob nowadays . We have curfews and they are followed in my home.He was looking for drugs etc. and the excuse was to get candy come on!!!!!! This kid was up to no good.
Richard: what crap. A Concealed Carry holder in Florida can carry his or her firearm just about anywhere. While walking around one's own neighborhood is certainly one of those places they can concealed carry. It may or may not have been the policy of the neighborhood watch for watch captains to be unarmed, but policy is not the same as law. Florida law backs up Zimmerman. Zimmerman NEVER grabbed or even touched Martin before being physically attacked by Martin. After Zimmerman spoke with Martin and identified himself as a watch captain and was walking away with his back to Martin, Martin followed Zimmerman toward his truck, and asked him, "Do you have a problem?", Zimmerman turned around and replied, "No". Martin said, "Well now you do", and punched him in the face, breaking his nose, and decking him to the ground. Once on the ground, the 6'2",17-year-old Martin pummeled Zimmerman's face and head repeatedly to the concrete, thug-style. Martin suffered a broken nose, and a gash to the back of his head that required stitches. There were grass stains all over the BACK of Zimmerman's shirt, indicating the struggle went from the concrete to the nearby grass lawn, and that Zimmerman was in a defensive position, on his back. After repeated blows to the face and head, with Martin still on top of him, and Zimmerman screaming for help (heard on 911 calls) and no one coming to his aid, Zimmerman, as a last resort, managed to draw his weapon and fire one shot into the chest of his assailant. Thank G-d for the second amendment, and thank G-d Zimmerman was able to to defend himself against the life-or-death attack from that young thug with a criminal record already as long as your arm (for assault on a school employee, possession of stolen goods, possession of a burglary tool, putting graffiti on a school, and drug possession).
No need to argue. There are some that want the white guy to be guilty.
no one actually knows what occurred.
i am of the mindset of trying to remain objective.
i want to wait until all the evidence is in.
just zimmerman's statement alone is not adequate.
i have no doubt zimmerman was losing a fight. question remains; who started it?
one side claims zimmerman did. one side swears travon did.
truth is; and this is the one fact. no one knows.
i am a 57 yo white male and if i were walking at night, alone and someone, in this case of
another race were following me, and then approached me, and possibly asking me who i was, what i was doing there. or possibly grabbed me trying to detain me, i would pull away. if a scuffle ensued i would have done my best to be atop him pummeling him until he was unconscious.
from the recording i heard he says, 'he is getting away'. then you hear labored breaths from zimmerman. this probably indicates he is still pursuing, running. from that point unless the recording from travon's girlfriend has evidence. no one can say what transpired. i know the usual idiots came out on the defense side, all w/political motivation. i am trying to seek the truth in spite of their nonsense.
in your post you are making assumptions stating them as absolute fact. i am pro-gun. but every case has to be taken on it's own merit.
Richard, if you waiting for all the evidence to come in, why did you refer to the assailant as "the victim" in your previous post? The extensive physical and eyewitness evidence that is in thus far, strongly indicates that George Zimmerman is telling the truth. As someone who lives not too far from where this happened, I have been following this case in the local news long before it made the national news, and am more familiar with it than most. The Left and their complicit media are leaving out important facts that were in the police reports taken that night, in order to jam their agenda (race wars) forward. I am taking a stand against that.
If I was being pummeled, I would just pull my .380
