|Zimmerman's wounds self|
This is just another "trial" of our century . The Zimmerman trial is a racially charged trial that could explode thanks on the basis of people who have already pre-judged it. A year ago it was reported that a "white male had shot a innocent black teen." It was a really garbled media message . George Zimmerman is a Hispanic male . Who may have been defending himself , but over reacted . From my own understanding why the media "focused" on the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman , and neglecting the other shootings around the nation where we have black on black shootings , and yes there were other stories of shootings where a white suspect shot a black man . Or a Black suspect shot a white person. They never made it to the news, but were flat ignored . I hate racism, but honestly there is a lot of hypocrisy on race . Certain persons are "profiled" , while others are swept under the rug. The Trayvon Martin case is an example of an over hyped media sensation . You have to thank all the people who rallied against Zimmerman . Rev. Jesse Jackson Civil rights icon, Jesse Jackson took to the pulpit and the classroom in Miami to sermonize and implore African Americans to vote and to turn the death of Trayvon Martin into action. The Rev. Jackson had already "judged" the situation that Trayvon was innocent , and Zimmerman is guilty .There have been marches and rallies in various cities, and calls from Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill for Zimmerman's arrest. There have also been calls for changes to the "stand your ground" laws, in Florida and 16 other states. Those statutes make it easier for citizens, such as George Zimmerman, to claim self defense. As crazy as it seems we are not getting the full story .George Zimmerman, who had called police to report a "suspicious" person in the neighborhood and had been following Martin, told authorities he was walking away from Martin when the teenager approached him. Zimmerman says Martin knocked him to the ground and slammed his head on to the sidewalk. **On that night Trayvon may have looked suspicious . The Seminole County Sheriff’s Department’s Computer Aided Dispatch shows that Zimmerman called police to report a suspicious person, then told them the subject was running from him. The exchange between the dispatcher and Zimmerman shows that he was advised not to continue to follow Martin. One witness interviewed said she saw one of the subjects chasing the other, but could not see who was who. A recording of a female identified as Martin’s longtime friend who was on the phone with him just before the shooting said he began to run when he realized Zimmerman was following him. As we know now , Zimmerman did call the police reported that night , it just did not seem to me as random shooting . A struggle between Trayvon and Zimmerman must have exploded . That detail is the biggest mystery to the story . Who threw the first punch. Police officer Timothy Smith arrived at the scene at approximately 7:17 PM. He reported finding Zimmerman standing near Martin, who was lying face down in the grass and unresponsive. At that time, Zimmerman stated to Smith that he had shot Martin and was still armed. Smith handcuffed Zimmerman and removed his weapon from him. Smith observed that Zimmerman's back was wet and covered with grass and he was bleeding from the nose and the back of his head. Trayvon The Miami Gardens teen who has become a national symbol of racial injustice was suspended three times, and had a spotty school record that his family’s attorneys say is irrelevant to the facts that led up to his being gunned down on Feb. 26. In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f---.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker. In this case we have a moral to this , So are half-truths and distortions –Trayvon was not on a path towards the house where he was staying. His strange behavior could have been caused by him looking for a opportunity to break into a house to rob. When the Police found jewelry in his bag at school and he was wandering around a area that had several break ins should of at least caused some investigating. ## As suspicious as Trayvon Martin looked that night I have to agree with this conclusion Mr. Zimmerman was under no legal obligation to obey the dispatcher’s instruction, he should have stopped following Martin, and after losing sight of him, Zimmerman should have fallen back and waited for the police to arrive.----- @ the end of the story.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
** Trayvon Martin was walking home that night after he came from a 7-11 store with Ice Tea , and a bag of Skittles. Remember this is a vary documented case . ## Transcript : "This guy looks like he's up to no good or he's on drugs or something," Zimmerman told the dispatcher. "It's raining, and he's just walking around looking about." The man tried to explain where he was. "Now he's coming towards me. He's got his hand in his waistband. And he's a black male...Something's wrong with him. Yup, he's coming to check me out. He's got something in his hands. I don't know what his deal is...These assholes, they always get away." After discussing his location with the dispatcher, Zimmerman exclaimed, "Shit, he's running," and the following sounds suggest he left his vehicle to run after Martin. "Are you following him?" the dispatcher asked. Zimmerman replied: "Yep."----------"Okay, we don't need you to do that," the dispatcher warned.
@ Next the whole NATION is worried about a possible acquittal . Miami-area sheriff’s office talking to federal agencies and asking residents not to riot.The Broward Sheriff’s Office, whose jurisdiction includes a large portion of the Miami metropolitan area, released a video yesterday urging residents not to riot in response to the Trayvon Martin shooting trial which now appears to lean heavily in George Zimmerman’s favor.
