Okay, I suppose it’s time to ruffle a few feathers & say my peace on the whole debacle down in Sanford, Florida, by which I mean the case surrounding death of Trayvon Martin. I have a lot of points to make, and not all of them are going to be popular with various segments of the population.
First of all, I must preface my remarks with the obvious: it’s a terrible tragedy that a 17-year old kid was killed, regardless of the method. Parents shouldn’t ever have to bury their kids. Just a couple of weeks ago a high-schooler was killed on prom night in a car wreck in my town, and that’s a tragedy as well, but didn’t make national headlines. I feel bad for both families.
Only two people know the full truth of what happened that night. One of them isn’t talking and the other can't talk. Anything else offered up by anyone is pure opinion and conjecture. Including me.
In my humble yet correct opinion, George Zimmerman will probably not get a fair trial by an impartial jury of his peers. He’s already been tried & convicted in the court of public opinion, vilified, demonized, and crucified, awaiting a demanded execution at the hands of some unruly mob carrying torches & pitchforks. And if, by some happenstance he is acquitted one only has to look at Richard Jewell to see how difficult is it to put your life back together after something like this.
The mainstream, lamestream, blamestream media has had a field day with this, destroying the accused before he was ever even arrested & formally charged with a crime. The M/L/B Media has gone out of its way to make this a racially-motivated event because racism and sensationalism sells. Producers at MSNBC went so far as to doctor up their own edit of George Zimmerman’s call to the police dispatchers to make it sound racial, and the media is referring repeatedly to George Zimmerman as a “white Hispanic” to broaden the divide between black & white. He’s not just Hispanic anymore; he’s a white Hispanic. I'm surprised that the Left hasn't blamed this all on Bush.
The M/L/B Media keeps using pictures that are a good 5 to 7 years old to play on our sympathies. Every picture shown of George Zimmerman seems to be the same; an old police mugshot from a case where the charges were dropped, whereas every picture of Trayvon Martin depicts him as a smiling, cherubic Christ figure. Even the President claimed that if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon, a blatant move to garner votes in an election year. Using Photoshop, a picture of Martin in his now-infamous hoodie has been lightened and doctored to make him look younger and more innocent. You no longer see the smiling George Zimmerman in a shirt & tie, and the media is covering up the recently found picture from Trayvon Martin’s Twitter account, the one of him flipping the bird to the camera. There’s even a difference in the way their names are spoken in the media. They always uses Trayvon’s first name only…he’s become a one-name household word, like Jesus or Ghandi. On the opposite, Zimmerman is just that; a last name. They refer to him constantly as just a last name, you know, kinda like Hitler or Stalin or Bin Laden.
Sadly, the Martin family had to retain the services of a copyright lawyer once the story broke to copyright Trayvon’s name & likeness. At first a cynic might think of this in a negative way but it’s to provide legal recourse for the family in light of all the people out there selling bootleg Trayvon tee shirts, hoodies, and other products on eBay and other internet sites. Why get a real job when you can sell cheap tee shirts online to cash in on a tragedy?
Yes indeed, the American Entremanurial Spirit is indeed hard at work here. This kid shows us how to make a bootleg Trayvon shirt.
I’d like to know where the Justice Department and our illustrious Attorney General Eric Holder is on this, when the New Black Panther Party has offered up a$10,000 bounty on George Zimmerman, dead or alive? Hell, the commissioner of the NFL suspended coaches & players alike for a bounty scheme where no one was in danger of being killed, and the suppposed Top Cop in America is silent.
Oh yeah, feel the love on this bootleg t-shirt. Do proceeds go to the Zimmerman Legal Fund?
Meanwhile, noted race-baiter Spike Lee put out the address of the WRONG Zimmerman family on Twitter to entice lynch mobs to gather there. Noted Liberal Fruitbat Roseanne Barr put up George Zimmerman’s parents’ address on Twitter & then deleted it. Of course, no charges were filed against any Liberal Hollyweird types…not much is being said either about the calls for the death of Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester, who allowed Zimmerman to be released on $150,000 bond a couple days ago.
Fine examples from the Twitterverse calling for violence:@YouLoveMae: I told my dad if what happened to trayvon Martin happened to Mayori or Marjani, I wouldn't try to kill Zimmerman. I'd go after his family April 23, 2012

C'mon, Holder...Sharpton....Jackson....Farrakhan.....nothing to say when it's reverse racism and threats of violence?
At first, there was no national coverage on what on the surface appeared to be a tragic shooting of a teen by a Neighborhood Watch member in some Florida town. It only went national after a few weeks had passed without an arrest being made and the family getting nowhere with the case.. Someone in the media figured a black kid shot by a guy they could classify as white by association would rile up everyone, and get the Jackson & Sharpton Show in town. After all, black on black violence gets no sensational press, and black on white violence gets glossed over…but white on black violence gets played up to the hilt by the race baiters and the M/L/B Media.
Where was the media coverage back in 2007 when a group of 4 black men & one black woman killed Christopher Newsom, 23 and Channon Christian, 21, in Knoxville? I admit that until recently even I hadn’t heard about this horrific crime. The internet abounds with sensationalized accounts of what occurred after they were carjacked and taken to a suspect’s house, and you kinda have to filter through to find the truth but…According to the trial testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan, Newsom was repeatedly sodomized with an object and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet bound, and his head covered. Barefoot, he was either led or dragged outside the house to a set of nearby railroad tracks. He was shot in the back of the head, the neck, and the back, and then his body was set on fire.
Channon's death came after hours of sexual torture, the medical examiner testified. Channon suffered horrific injuries to her vagina, anus and mouth. She was not only raped but savaged with "an object," possibly a broken chair leg, the doctor testified. She was beaten in the head and some type of cleaning chemical was poured down her throat and over her body, including her bleeding and battered genital area, ostensibly to destroy DNA evidence – all while Channon was alive, the forensic expert said. She was then "hog-tied," with curtains and strips of bedding, her face covered tightly with a small trash bag and her body stashed inside five large trash bags before being placed inside a large trash can and covered with sheets. Channon died slowly by suffocation, the medical examiner said. Wow.
Twenty-four hour media coverage and stakeouts at the jail where George Zimmerman was being held, and yet I heard nary a peep about this case till last week? And while the terrible Newsom/Christian case has nothing to do with the death of Trayvon Martin, another case does. A few days ago a white guy was allegedly set upon by a black mob in Mobile, Alabama and savagely beaten for fussing at a group of black kids playing basketball in the middle of the street in front of his home. Matthew Owens was beaten by a group of up to 20 people wielding pipes, chairs, brass knuckles, even paint cans. Reportedly, as they walked away from the scene, of of his assailants is reported to have said “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.” Police are downplaying any connection to the Zimmerman/Martin case, but seriously, that’s just them covering their asses to avoid a mob scene.
Where's the Million Man March for Matthew Owens? Inquiring minds wanna know.
Basically a prisoner on house arrest, George Zimmerman, (while free on bond pending trial) may as well have stayed safely in jail held apart from the general population, as he is most assuredly a marked man. Some convict from any number of gangs would shank him in a heartbeat. He’s got a GPS ankle monitor from the police that some enterprising soul is likely trying to hack to find him. He’s probably sleeping in his body armor vest.
I’m of the opinion that had they not arrested him when they did, riots from the black community were imminent. If he’s not convicted, there’ll be riots like in the Rodney King case. From several accounts, the case for second degree murder is weaker than Obama's economic policy, so this is a very plausible scenario.
Wow, they just can't let that Michael Vick case go, can they? Still pissed that a black athlete went to jail. They don't see dog fighting as a crime. I bet his dogs think differently...
No matter what happens, there will be no winners here. A family has lost their son, and his admitted & apologetic killer will never again have a normal life outside of a complete name change on the scale of the Federal Witness Protection Program. Race baiters will find someone new to exploit, the media will find some new shiny object to be distracted by, and liberal a-hole celebrities will find some new way of getting their names in the papers for being a-hole celebs.
