I am sick and tired of the media referring toTrayvon Martin as a “child.” He was 17 years old, 6’2 ” and a muscular 176 pounds . He had scrapes with the law in the past, has been known to have screw drivers and expensive jewelry and watches on him which he said he “found.” His screen name on his facebook page was ‘Wild Nigga’ and all his friends said he had the best “plants” meaning marijuana plants. It is also known from his chats with friends on his facebook page that they talked about mixing skittles and Arizona Ice Tea with codene from cough syrup to make a cocktail known as “lean.” This is what he was buying the night he was shot. No, he was not the innocent child as the media portrays.
Sure it is a tragedy what happened, but I do believe it was self defense and Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara did an excellent job. Sure Zimmerman shouldn’t have gotten out of his car, but he did go back after a while. That’s when Trayvon approached him and said, “Do you have a problem?” When Zimerman said ‘No” that’s whenTrayvon said ,”Now you do” and punched him in the nose and threw him down straddling him, punching him, banging his head against the cement saying,”You’re going to die tonite.” If I were Zimmerman I would have done the same thing if Ihad a gun and someone bigger than me was punching me while I’m on my back telling me I was going to die then. Zimmerman didn’t think he killed Martin at first and thought he just wounded him. He did the right thing and turned himself in right away.
For once I agree with Geraldo Rivera who said Zimmerman was upset with all the break-ins and robberies in his neighborhood and people who were victimized. When he saw someone who fit the profile of the recent thugs he phoned it in saying “These people always get away with it.” Geraldo also said Trayvon was also guilty of racial profiling when he told his girlfriend on the phone “There’s a crazy ass cracker following me.”
Now so far everything is peaceful,except for the twitter people calling for racial violence and burning and looting, but these protestors I’ve seen being interviewed are missing the facts. All they see is is Zimerman killing this ‘innocent child”. They don’t see Trayvon throwing the first punch and approaching Zimmerman.
This is a non-racial incident that never should have been brought to the attention it received. I was glad when I heard O’mara at the press confernce blame the media and told them they acted like a mad scientist over a body on a table without any anesthesia and that they took a story and ran with it without knowing all the facts.. It was the race obsessed media and Obama who made this a racial case. If this were a black on black crime there wouldn’t be any attention to it. In Chicago this year so far 75 kids have been killed by other black crimes and not a mention of that or how about the four black gang members in Georgia who beat a white man and threw his unconcious body in the road for a car to run over which it did. They were arrested, but not much attention in the media.
The race obsessed media was hoping for a white on black crime and when they found out Zimmerman was Hispanic (his mother is from Peru and his father is jewish) they quickly labled him a “white Hispanic” which there is no such thing. That’s like saying Obama is a “white black” since he is only half black not a full black like the media says.
Yes I ‘m glad Zimmerman got off and the system worked, but I fear for his life now from some fringe elements .I hope calm and good sense prevail. Read how Alan Derswhowitz says the prosecutors shouid be disbarred. I agree with him.
The jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin.
