Trayvon Martin – What the Media has yet to show you

Since this is a free blog, I sometimes will repost articles entirely.  I will put a link to the source, and think it’s a great site.  This is a pretty amazing bit of facts you have yet to hear in MSM:

What the Media Choose Not to Know about Trayvon

ByJack Cashill

Unnerved by an unspoken mix of political bias and racial queasiness, the major media have chosen to know as little about Trayvon Martin as they know about Barack Obama.

As a case in point, consider this boy vs. man fable spun by the New York Times‘ Charles Blow:

A boy’s blood had been spilled on a rain-soaked patch of grass behind a row of mustard-colored condominiums by a man who had pursued him against the advice of 911 dispatchers. That man carried a 9-millimeter handgun. The boy carried a bag of candy.

Blow was writing seven weeks after Trayvon’s death.  He had no excuse for missing the actual story.  Worse, since he is a writer for the Times, his reporting has helped set the media tone worldwide

The media’s willful ignorance was on display again this past week.  In reporting this news of George Zimmerman’s return to jail, more than a few media outlets showed the dangerously deceptive image of Trayvon as 11-year-old cherub.  They did so in the assumption that the narrative was still theirs to control.  It is not.  The blogs, which have been doing the real detective work on this case, have long since taken control away from them.

The sites I have found most useful are the Daily Caller and theconservativetreehouse.com.  What follows is largely culled from those sites and their independent contributors.  By probing Trayon’s background and parsing his social media chatter, they have put together a picture of a disturbed young man that begins to makes sense of the events that unfolded on that fateful rainy night of February 26.

6:21

Trayvon Martin is seen on the security video through the 7-11 window approaching the store from the direction of the Retreat at Twin Lakes.  He had been staying there at the townhouse of his father’s girlfriend, Brandy Green.  In major media accounts, the helpful Trayvon ventured out in the rain in a mile-plus round trip to buy Brandy’s 14-year-old son, Chad, some Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea.  Not likely.

6:22

Trayvon, with his hoodie up, grabs two items from the shelves of 7-11.  One is the Skittles.  The other is Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail.  The media avoid the name of the real drink — possibly because of the racial implications of the word “watermelon,” but possibly to avoid probing the real reason for Trayon’s trip.

Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as “Lean,” also known in southern hip-hop culture as “Sizzurp” and “Purple Drank.”  Lean consists of three basic ingredients — codeine, a soft drink, and candy.  If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011.  

On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, “unow a connect for codien?”  He tells the friend that “robitussin nd soda” could make “some fire ass lean.”  He says, “I had it before” and that he wants “to make some more.”  On the night of February 26, if Brandy had some Robitussin at home, Trayvon had just bought the mixings for one “fire ass lean” cocktail.

6:23

Trayvon pays for his purchases.  He then appears to point to an item behind the counter, but the clerk seems to reject that option.  Trayvon turns from the counter with a couple of dollar bills still in his hand.

6:24

Trayvon leaves the 7-11, but we do not see him walk in front of the store window back towards Brandy’s home.

6:25

Three squirrely young men enter the 7-11, all of them with their faces concealed in part or in full.  The clerk had to have been nervous.  One of the three (Curly) takes off his hat and shakes out his long, curly dark hair.  He is likely either white or Hispanic, or, like Zimmerman, a “white Hispanic.”

6:27

Curly appears to be holding the two bills Trayvon walked out with.  He approaches the clerk and buys two cheap cigars from behind the counter and then a third one as an afterthought.

6:28

Curly is the first of three to exit.  The others will follow in a minute.

6:29

Trayvon, turning as he walks, can be seen through the window heading back towards the Retreat at Twin Lakes and Brandy’s house.

7:09

Zimmerman calls police while watching Trayvon near the gated community’s clubhouse, less than a half-mile from the 7-11.  According to “Dee-Dee,” the girl Trayvon was periodically talking to on his cell phone, he was ducking in out of the rain.  She also said he put his hoodie up for the same reason.  In fact, though, Trayvon had his hoodie up inside the 7-11, and he was walking in the rain when Zimmerman spotted him.  The walk to this point should have taken 10 minutes.

It took 40 minutes.  Some background may help explain why.  Earlier that same month, Trayvon had been caught at school holding a bag with marijuana residue and a marijuana pipe.  He was suspended for the third time that school year, this time for ten days.  Trayvon may have been dealing as well.  As one online friend had communicated earlier, “Damn were u at a nigger need a plant.”

Trayvon was partial to “blunts,” street slang for cannabis rolled with the tobacco-leaf wrapper from an inexpensive cigar called a “blunt.”  As a tribute after his death, one friend posted online a photo of a homemade badge honoring Trayvon positioned next to a blunt.

It seems altogether possible that Curly bought at least one of those cigars for the under-aged Trayvon and took those visible dollar bills as payment.  Trayvon waited five minutes outside the 7-11 and did not leave until after Curly came out.  In the 40 minutes before Zimmerman spotted him, Trayvon could have scraped the tobacco out of the cigar, replaced it with marijuana, and smoked his blunt.

“This guy looks like he’s up to no good,” Zimmerman tells the police.  “Or he’s on drugs or something.  It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”  Trayvon was on drugs or had been recently.  His autopsy showed the presence of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, in both his blood and his urine.

It is possible too that Trayvon was up to no good.  “He’s just staring, looking at all the houses,” says Zimmerman.  Trayvon had a history.  On October 21, 2011, he received his second suspension that school year.  A security guard at his school saw Trayvon writing “WTF” on a hallway locker.  In looking through his bag for the marker, the guard found 12 pieces of jewelry, a watch, and a “burglary tool.”

Zimmerman did the prudent thing by reporting Trayvon to the police.  Ever since the Florida real estate bust, the Retreat at Twin Lakes had been troubled by vacancies, foreclosures, and renters of dubious repute.  The community had suffered numerous break-ins and home invasions, the perpetrators of which were all young men, most of them black.  “We report all suspicious persons & activities to the Sanford Police Department,” reads the standard neighborhood watch sign at the community’s gated entrance.  If Trayvon did not fit the bill, no one did.

7:10

“He’s coming towards me,” Zimmerman tells the police about Trayvon, who is now walking towards his truck.  He makes his first firm identification of Trayvon as “a black male.”  Adds Zimmerman, “He’s coming to check me out.  He’s got something in his hands.”  Zimmerman sounds a little anxious: “Please, get an officer over here.”

7:11

After Trayvon passes his truck, Zimmerman says, “Shit, he’s running.”  He is heading towards “the back entrance,” says Zimmerman.  That entrance is in the same general direction as Brandy’s townhouse.  A question that goes unasked is why Trayvon was running.

7:12

When asked by the dispatcher, Zimmerman agrees not to follow Trayvon, and his heavy breathing ends.  “He ran,” says Zimmerman.  Even if running slowly, Trayvon could have made it to Brandy’s house in a half a minute.  It was only 100 yards from the truck.

7:13

Zimmerman is hesitant to give out his address.  “I don’t know where this kid is.”  He looks around to see where Trayvon has gone, fails to spot him, terminates his call, and heads back to the truck.

7:14 – 7:16

These are the missing two minutes.  After receiving a call from Dee-Dee, Trayvon has come back to confront Zimmerman.  Their final confrontation takes place 70 yards from Brandy’s townhouse and only 30 yards from Zimmerman’s truck.  No one hunted Trayvon down.  Although he has kept the drink and candy on his person, Trayvon does not have a blunt with him.

According to the autopsy report, Trayvon was 5’11” tall and weighed 158 pounds, the “ideal healthy weight” at that height being 160 pounds.  He was not the skinny little boy with the Skittles that half of America still believes him to be.  He was at least three inches taller than Zimmerman and only about 20 pounds lighter.

His home life a wreck, his school life in disarray, Trayvon had fallen victim to urban America’s lost boy culture.

This culture, which the media also choose not to see, has been shockingly destructive.  Citing Bureau of Justice statistics, black economist Walter Williams in a recent column notes that “between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims.”  Of these, Williams estimates that roughly “262,621 were murdered by other blacks.”

Trayvon had “statistic” written all over him.  In the past year or so, his social media sites showed a growing interest in drugs, in mixed martial arts-style street fighting, in a profoundly vulgar exploitation of “bitches.”

Trayvon posed for one photo with raised middle fingers, another with wads of cash held in an out-stretched arm.  One YouTube video shows him refereeing a fight club-style street fight.  A cousin had recently tweeted him, “Yu ain’t tell me yu swung on a bus driver,” meaning, if true, that Trayvon had punched out a bus driver.

Zimmerman never saw the cute little boy that the TV audience did.  He saw a full-grown man, a druggy, a wannabe street fighter, the tattooed, gold-grilled, self-dubbed “No_Limit_Nigga.”

Media obfuscation may still work in the court of public opinion — it got Obama elected in 2008 — but it will not work in a court of law.  The truth will out.  When it does, the major media will lose a good chunk of whatever credibility they have left, and our nation may lose a good chunk of its urban real estate.  SOURCE

These are the images of George Zimmerman that night.  The media has not shown these very often if at all.

 

In fact, this is the image the jury saw today (I don’t know if the above one was shown, but this is what they saw:

Jurors See Gun, Graphic Photos, Skittles on Day 2 of Zimmerman Trial

I really wonder how people would view Mr. Zimmerman had the fake 911 call not been released where the media tried to make him sound like a racist.  Or had they not put up five year old images of Trayvon  or the images that they tried to say showed Mr. Zimmerman did not look injured.  I wonder just how people would view the facts.  It is the defense attorney’s job to put the series of events in question including the state of mind of Mr. Martin.  Will he go into the issues of his drug use, talking about “Lean” and apparently having items handy to make “Lean”?  Right now, I feel like Mr. Zimmerman should get a new lawyer because his current one seems like a complete idiot.  Then again, maybe he was trying to plant seeds for a mistrial with his “knock knock” joke at the very beginning.

  1. If your going to beat your chest about media bias, then you should put forward better sources than biased media. The Daily Caller is an embarrassment, and it’s reporting on the Martin case seems obsessed with distracting its readers from the central issues–Why Zimmerman got out of his car, what happened during the next in the next five minutes, and how Zimmerman came to shot an unarmed boy.

    Moreover, if your going to beat your chest about media bias, then you should at least try to tap into primary sources and familiarize yourself with the evidence that media is allegedly distorting. As it happens, the most important primary sources, the 911 tape and the re-enactment vidoe, are public available. In both, Zimmeran does all the talking, so he has complete control over the information shared. Both are damning for him.

    Zimmerman is guilty. My argument in essence boils down to this:

    Zimmerman can’t claim self defense if he started the fight. Martin had a right to defend himself; Zimmerman didn’t have a right to stalk him.

    Zimmerman undercut his self-defense claim by forcing the confrontation to happen, and he did so the moment he got out is his truck and followed Martin. Even in the transcripts of his 911 call, there is evidence of deceptiveness in his conduct that evolved as the incident unfolded. The transcripts strongly indicate his aggressive attitude toward the 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. That deceit and aggressiveness is all important, because you can’t claim self-defense in a fight you yourself started.

    Zimmerman claims he broke off pursuit of Martin when 911 told him to, but the 911 transcript undermines that claim. The transcript is available in full on a number of websites, so I’ll restrain myself here to the highlights:

    [00:42] Zimmerman is clearly still in the truck: Yeah, a dark hoodie like a gray hoodie. He wore jeans or sweat pants and white tennis shoes. He’s here now … he’s just staring.

    911 dispatcher: He’s just walking around the area, the houses? OK.

    Zimmerman: Now he’s staring at me.

    We know from telephone records that Martin was on his cell with his friend Jeantel, and had been for several minutes before he became aware of Zimmerman. This seems to be the moment when Martin became aware of Zimmerman.

    [1:03] Zimmerman is clearly still in the truck: “Yeah, now he’s coming toward me. He’s got his hands in his waist band.”

    [1:39] Zimmerman: “OK. These assholes. They always get away.”

    At this point, Zimmerman has no idea who Martin is. He’s just a boy walking down a darkened street in the rain, but already Zimmerman is expressing hostility and rage towards him.

    [2:08] Zimmerman: “He’s running.”

    Zimmerman’s car was on Twin Trees Street. It was at this point that Martin ran away, leaving Twin Trees, which was open to vehicular traffic, and heading down a pedestrian walkway, which was the most direct route to his father’s girlfriend’s house. He quickly disappeared from Zimmerman’s line-of-sight from his vantage point inside his vehicle. Furthermore, Zimmerman’s vehicle could not follow him on the pathway.

    [2:24] 911 dispatcher: “Are you following him?”

    Zimmerman: “Yeah.”

    911 dispatcher: “OK. We don’t need you to do that.”

    Zimmerman: “OK.”

    So less than 20 seconds have passed since Martin started running away. Less still since Zimmerman got out of his car to follow him (which of course can’t be justified).

    [3:10] 911 dispatcher: “Alright, where are you going to meet with them [the responding police] at?”

    Zimmerman: “Um, if they come in through the gate, tell them to go straight past the clubhouse and, uh, straight past the clubhouse and make a left and then go past the mailboxes you’ll see my truck.”

    The rendezvous spot is in the opposite direction from the direction Martin ran to, yet . Zimmerman’s vehicle is back in the direction of the rendezvous, yet Zimmerman will continue following Martin’s route, moving away from his truck and the rendezvous spot. More importantly, he will not make the operator aware of this.

    [3:21] 911 dispatcher: “Alright, what address are you parked in front of?”

    Zimmerman: “Um, I don’t know. It’s a cut-through so I don’t know the address.”

    It’s now been a full minute since he was directed to return to his car. Note how evasive his answer is.

    [3:40] 911 dispatcher: “OK, what’s your apartment number?”

    Zimmerman: “It’s a home. It’s 1950 – oh, crap, I don’t want to give it out – I don’t know where this kid is.” [inaudible]

    How is there any risk of what he is saying being overheard by the kid unless he’s still following the kid?

    [3:49] 911 dispatcher: “Alright, George, I’ll let them know you’ll meet them at…”

    Zimmerman: “Could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at?”

    He can’t arrange to meet at the location of his parked truck, because he’s still in pursuit, moving farther away from the truck, and not sure where he’ll end up.

    [4:02] 911 dispatcher: “OK, no problem. I’ll let them know to call you when they’re in the area.”

    Zimmerman: “Thanks.”

    911 dispatcher: “You’re welcome.”

    [Call ends]

    http://videos.mediaite.com/audio/Raw-Audio-911-Call-George-Zimme

    We are now two minutes after the directive to return to his truck. In another three minutes, Martin will be shot. He will bleed to death while on the most direct route to his father’s girlfriend’s house. Zimmerman’s truck was abandoned by him, several blocks way, five minutes earlier.

    Also significant is the manner in which Zimmerman’s story changed over time. He reenacted the incident for the police the next day during the daytime. The re-enactment video, like the 911 transcripts, are available on the internet.

    Now, my observations about the evidence in the Crime Scene Re-enactment Video:

    Zimmerman’s justification for leaving his car was that he did not know the name of the street. But the 911 tape reveals he knew the clubhouse was directly behind him, and the video reveals he knew Retreat Circle was directly in front of him. Therefore, the street name could have been easily established by the police without him exiting his vehicle.

    Between 5:00 and 5:20 Zimmerman implies that 911 directed him to “get somewhere where I can see him,” which is obviously not anywhere in the transcript.

    6:10-6:20: Zimmerman claims that Martin went to the pedestrian walkway between the houses, then doubled back, circled Zimmerman’s truck, and then returned to the pedestrian walkway. Zimmerman claims he exited his car after that. But there’s nothing even faintly resembling that on the 911 transcript, even though the conversation was continuous and Zimmerman was describing everything he saw to the dispatcher. Further more, the 911 transcript indicates Martin started running less than 30 seconds before Zimmerman exited his car, making the actions described all but impossible in the given time frame.

    Zimmerman repeatedly suggested, both in the 911 transcript, and on the re-enactment video, that Martin “had something in his hands” and was “reaching for his waistband”, which hints at a possible weapon (and we now know Martin did not), which makes Zimmerman’s decision to leave his truck all the more irrational.

    7:00 to 7:05: Zimmerman claims he got out of his truck to “look for a street sign.” But then he left the street his truck was parked on; clearly his real intent was to stalk Martin. “If I went straight through I knew that would be Retreat Circle.” In addition to being a dubious piece of logic (why not go in the other, safer, direction?), he can’t account for why it took up all the time remaining in the call to cover the short distance (two minutes is how long it took in the video, while walking at an extremely slow pace with repeated stops and pauses along the way) or why it took even longer to return to his truck (three minutes between the end of the call and the shooting) or why he disconnected the call in the first place, considering that he chose to get closer, not farther away, from the boy.

    At the 9:20 mark, he says he told 911 he wanted the cops to meet him at his truck, which contradicts the transcript, and distracts attention from one of his most suspicious actual statements on the 911 call.

    It is very important to note that on the 911 transcript, he never said he was going to Retreat Circle to get the address, and when he (claimed) he got there, he never shared that information with the dispatcher.

    The 911 was terminated even though Zimmerman, if he was at his claimed position, would have been aware that he put the boy in between himself and his truck.

    After terminating the call, it would be three minutes before the shooting, but in the video it took him only 30 seconds to reach the position where he claimed he was jumped.

    Summary Proving Zimmerman’s Guilt, Including Some Information Not Included Above:

    He thinks a kid walking down the street in the rain and talking on his cell phone is suspicious. He called 911, but still insisted on getting out of his truck to follow the boy. This action, it should be noted, also violates the Procedures of the Neighborhood Watch of which he was a member. Before this, he was already expressing hostility and rage, and using profane language, at the boy, a complete stranger.

    He is directed to return to car by 911, but doesn’t.

    He disconnected the 911 call as he stalked the boy. He is soon blocks away from his truck on a path inaccessible to vehicles.

    His claim that he was attacked by Martin is contradicted by Martin running way from him, his following Martin, the fact that Martin’s body was found along the most direct route to his farther’s girlfriend’s house (where he was running to), and Martin’s friend Jeantel’s testimony in court.

    He continues to use profanity and express rage towards the boy even after learning that the kid had legitimate reason to be where he was.

    Martin was unarmed, had committed no crime, and was neither drunk nor high.

    Shall I keep going? I still haven’t gotten to Zimmerman’s previous history of violence and lying to the court.

    • Somehow you equate being a neighborhood watch person with stalking. Why did it take Martin 40 minutes in the rain to take a 15 minute walk? Might it be that as Zimmerman says, he was looking in windows and casing houses? Also, he was known to use Purple Drank otherwise called Lean and appeared to have found Robitussin in his Dad’s house. Also, he was known to smoke pot which affects teens frontal cortex and causes them to make very bad decisions.

      Last time I looked, I can walk around my neighborhood anytime I want and it’s not my fault if a racist paranoid teen is pissed off about it. Martin started the fight, was the one on top after sucker punching Zimmerman and I have yet to ever see someone beating the crap out of another and crying for help. Trayvon Martin is just like the drug dealing and stealing thugs in Chicago that shoot each other up every day, but the race baiters don’t really give a damn about those black thugs or victims, no it’s just when it’s convenient to stir up race wars and riots. This is a planned game and anyone who falls for this little charade is playing right into their hands.

      http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/12/25/3156466_p2/parents-on-both-sides-of-zimmerman.html

      Obviously you think Zimmerman was guilty while walking white or should I say Hispanic. Martin came back and attacked him, so it is self defense based on the eye witness testimony. Oh and as for why he was afraid that he gave out his number is because Martin could have later gone to the police, requested tape and found out where Zimmerman lived. We saw it all the time when I worked as a police dispatcher. People do not like to give their 20 out. Which also points the fact that Zimmerman had no intention to kill Mr. Martin.

  2. unifiedserenity: Before I point out each and every false fact and assumption you spewed, I have to ask–Why are so many people invested in the declaration of the innocence of a man who gunned down an unarmed boy?

    1.)

    “Somehow you equate being a neighborhood watch person with stalking. Why did it take Martin 40 minutes in the rain to take a 15 minute walk? Might it be that as Zimmerman says, he was looking in windows and casing houses? “

    Your time-line is demonstrably false. Since the time-line of events is so well established, and available to the public, there’s little justification for these falsities.

    6:24 Martin makes his purchase at 7-Eleven. The satellite photo in linked article shows location to the 7-Eleven and the shooting and the distances between. This was clearly more than a fifteen minute walk. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/04/02/us/the-events-leading-to-the-shooting-of-trayvon-martin.html?_r=0

    There’s more. Martin was on his cell talking to a friend long before he was aware of Zimmerman (and vice-versa). That call (with one break that was less than a minute long) takes us from 6:54 to 7:16, basically the moment of his death.

    This second map (http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s516/freeperphathead/MartinMap.jpg ) marks location “1,” where Martin was when Zimmerman first saw him and called police at 7:09. What did Zimmerman see? A boy, walking in the rain, on a public street. He may not have know Martin was on the phone (Martin had a Bluetooth). The 911 call will last approximately four minutes. He was clearly following Martin when he disconnected, and just as clearly lied about it. He can not explain when he disconnected the call even though he was closer to the boy than when he was told not to follow.

    What makes you assume Martin was “casing houses” when we know he was chatting with a friend on the phone and following the most direct route to his father’s girlfriend’s house?

    “Also, he was known to use Purple Drank otherwise called Lean and appeared to have found Robitussin in his Dad’s house. Also, he was known to smoke pot which affects teens frontal cortex and causes them to make very bad decisions.”

    Martin’s autopsy included a toxicology. He had only trace amounts of marijuana break-down products in his system, but he was in no way under the influence as demonstrated by their low-levels. They stay in the system for weeks, which is why people get caught for marijuana on urine tests so much more often than harder drugs. The fact that the traces were so low suggests that Martin was not a heavy marijuana smoker. Nothing else you mentioned was found.

    What makes you assume he was under the influence when the evidence established otherwise?

    “Last time I looked, I can walk around my neighborhood anytime I want and it’s not my fault if a racist paranoid teen is pissed off about it.”

    Zimmerman stated Martin ran, and then he went after the kid, despite 911’s directive not to, and was deceitful with 911 about what he was doing. Martin, not Zimmerman, was acting as a person who felt threatened. Zimmerman was given chase to someone who had done nothing wrong.

    “Martin started the fight,”

    Based only on Zimmerman’s word, and he has been repeatedly caught in lies. Contradicted by Zimmerman’s actions, choosing to pursue a terrified boy through dark and rainy streets. Contradicted by his display of aggression both before he got out of the car, and in the police interview after he learned Martin had every reason to be where he was. Contradicted by the testimony of Rachel Jeantel who was on the phone with Martin until almost the moment of his death.

    “was the one on top after sucker punching Zimmerman and I have yet to ever see someone beating the crap out of another and crying for help.”

    Again, based only on Zimmerman’s word, and he has been repeatedly caught in lies. Contradicted by Martin’s parents saying the it was Martin’s, not Zimmerman’s voice crying for help. Even Zimmerman said, “That doesn’t sound like me.” Also, even if true, it’s immaterial. Simply put, the evidence says Zimmerman started the fight, so Zimmerman can’t claim self-defense. If you pick a fight, and the other person starts to get the better of you, and then you kill him, you are a murderer.

    “Trayvon Martin is just like the drug dealing and stealing thugs in Chicago that shoot each other up every day, but the race baiters don’t really give a damn about those black thugs or victims, no it’s just when it’s convenient to stir up race wars and riots. This is a planned game and anyone who falls for this little charade is playing right into their hands.”

    What makes you assume that an unarmed boy, walking down the street in the rain, talking on his phone the whole time, committing no crime, having no criminal record, and no history on violence, who is neither drunk or stoned, is “just like the drug dealing and stealing thugs in Chicago that shoot each other up every day…those black thugs”

    “Obviously you think Zimmerman was guilty while walking white”

    Zimmerman is on trial because he shot an unarmed boy, not “walking white.”

    “Oh and as for why he was afraid that he gave out his number is because Martin could have later gone to the police, requested tape and found out where Zimmerman lived.”

    If Zimmerman had not been following Martin, which 911 directed not to do, and which he misled them about, he wouldn’t have had to worry about being overheard giving out his home address (which, by the way, isn’t his “20.” How is it that a former police dispatcher is unaware of her own professional lingo?).

    You’ve accused me of being a race-baiter, but you own racism is explicit:

    • Assuming the boy was casing houses with no evidence, in fact with evidence to the contrary.
    • Assuming the boy was under the influence with no evidence, in fact with evidence to the contrary.
    • Saying he was “just like…drug dealing and stealing thugs” with no evidence, in fact with evidence to the contrary.
    • Just like “black thugs.”
    • While his killer, a man with a history of domestic violence and other aggressive behavior (he was fired from a security job for being “too aggressive”) is guilty of nothing but “walking white” as if no shooting ever took place.

    • You have a right to your views of this. We are not going to agree. It’s amazing that they are trying to smear Zimmerman for his past calls to 911 when the government has been pushing, “See something, say something”. I don’t like this spying on neighbors, but can you honestly say that if your neighborhood was having home invasions and burglaries in an increased scale that you would not want to be more careful.

      Again, Zimmerman said he stopped following the lil thug, and was headed back to his car. You disagree with that, and that is fine. I hope you understand that your account does not line up with Zimmerman’s account or other eye witnesses regarding the fight. Zimmerman had a history of helping low income black children and even was a moving force to help a black man clear his name.

      It’s very sad that Martin died, but it’s equally sad that he was so racist that he had to attack a man who was watching his neighborhood including Trayvon’s dad’s house! Trayvon escalated this. He could have gone home, It’ is reported that his cell phone was at his dad’s house on the porch so did he go home and return? I don’t know, but I am sure of one thing, Trayvon attacked George. George had a right to defend himself.
