Taraji P. Henson: Trayvon's life stolen from him
CBS News This Morning ^ | April 16. 2012

Posted on 04/16/2012 9:18:00 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson said 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's life was "stolen from him."

Martin was shot to death by George Zimmerman on Feb. 26 in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman says he shot Martin, who was unarmed, in self-defense. Zimmerman is under arrest.

Henson, who has a 17-year-old son herself, said she spoke to Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, over the weekend by phone.

"I cannot think about the mother, Sybrina, and what she could be going through," Henson said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "(Trayvon) should be doing exactly what my son is doing right now, figuring out where he's going to college, waiting for acceptance letters, you know, going on to the next phase of his life. But it was stolen from him."(continued)

Trayvon stole his own life when he decided to jump a neighborhood watch guy.

He got what he deserved.

Mr. Zimmerman wasn’t on neighborhood watch duty when he spotted young Mr. Trayvon Martin acting suspiciously and casing homes in that neighborhood. He was on his way to the store.

When you punch me in the face and pound my skull into concrete, expect me to use deadly force to defend myself.

How many lives were “stolen” in Chicago this weekend, and not by “white-Hispanics?”

Nah, Taraji, he pissed it down the drain of black thuggism.

But truth don’t matter, only opportunity, so just go on about your business until the next black thug dies 15 seconds from now.

Who cares.

4 dead in Chicago over the weekend.

Does she feel sorry for these mothers too?

Or is this more about who did the shooting?

Wasn't he suspended from school for drug paraphernalia and assaulting a bus driver? Sounds like a perfect candidate for Yale. Or is that jail?

I really wish that these Holly-weird types would just STFU and stick to the lines that are written for them by others. Reading this extemporaneous garbage from Ms. Henson makes me wish that Jim Caviezel will go off script and make her the next “Person of Interest” victim!

from the blog The Jawa Report, which got it from the Daily Caller, which has the complete story.
April 03, 2012
Guess Who?
In December 2010, the son of a local police officer sucker punched a homeless black man outside a bar. The white attacker strutted away from the downed man, obviously proud of his cowardly achievement. Police arrived at the scene and declined to arrest him, despite the fact the unprovoked attack was captured on video.
Over the course of the next several weeks, the community expressed outrage but few stepped up to do anything to demand justice for the homeless man, Sherman Ware. The black community was indifferent. The NAACP ignored the incident. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were nowhere to be found.
But one man was so determined to obtain justice for Sherman, he did what few others were willing to do. He stepped up and went door-to-door in black communities handing out fliers about the incident. He posted the fliers, put them on cars in parking lots, waited outside churches to give them to parishioners. He worked tirelessly exposing this injustice.
In January, his efforts finally paid off. In part, thanks to public pressure after the video was posted on Youtube, Justin Collison, a man with a violent history, was charged with sucker punching Sherman Ware.
In case you haven?t guessed, the man who worked so hard to bring justice for a homeless black man when the NAACP and other civil rights leaders looked the other way is named below the fold.
The man was George Zimmerman.
These noble efforts by Zimmerman to help a stranger get deserved justice were related by a family member who is now in hiding due to death threats. The family member sent this letter to the Sanford Chapter of the NAACP, which has continued to perpetuate the smear that George Zimmerman is a racist who killed Trayvon Martin for being black.

> “the next phase of his life. But it was stolen from him.”

It wasn’t stolen from him. He chose to engage in dangerous and risky activities. And he paid the price for his choices and actions.

It is incredibility sad for every mother who loses her son to the Black thug culture. That is A LOT of heartbreak imposed on our Nation.

It would be nice if these race pimps would put the kabosh on the tuffy-thug cultural mentality and act in life that is slaughtering young people. Feeding greed, envy, anger, rage and hate is deadly. The Black lady being interviewed plays the part of an edgy female race bully on tee vee.

When they watched all those Black people acting like animals as they fought for shoes and store sales, what did they think about that self destructive insanity? We must have missed it. They supposedly hate the greed of capitalism. But really, they just hate for a living.

First of all he was not on Neighborhood Watch just being a great neighbor.

Next no mention of the 345 Police Calls for assistance in the development in the past year?

Next it is not a gated community.

Got the picture now?

Funny the mother has 1 name the father a second name and Travyon a 3rd name?

If I was Mr Zimmerman I would be hiring 2 large attys an:
1. Sue NBC out of existence

2. Sue CBS for lieing on the entire issue.

Maybe then the lies will stop from the MSM....

In closing hey Shaun how come you still use the 12 year old picture of Travyon? Kick your crew in the butt and get the correct picture...

In closing 17 years old is the age of many in the US Military so why call him a little boy? I f-ing resent calling him a little child. Nobody called me that in the USAF when I was loading bombs at that age?????

I don’t know who Taraji P. Henson is, and suppose I’m better off because of it.

How about this for persons responsible for stealing Travyon’s life - HIS PARENTS. Maybe they should have raised him better? Maybe they should have known where their 17 year old Son was that night? Maybe they should have been doing something to punish him for his recent crimes? Maybe they should have been making sure he was squared away and ready for being an adult? Well at least now they take an interest, I hear they’ve trademarked his name, how long until Trayvon Hoodies hoodies hit the Walmart?

Am I jumping to conclusions about his parents? Is this no different than jumping to conclusions about Zimmerman?

(Trayvon) should be doing exactly what my son is doing right now

Is her son...

assaulting a bus driver? ("You ain't tell me you swung on a bus driver")

doing and distributing drugs? (suspended from school for marijuana; "damn were you at nigga needa plant")

is only a minor but has a gold grill and tattoos?

caught with a burglary tool and a dozen pieces of ladies' jewelry?

calls himself No_Limit_Nigga in homage to a rap star (C-Murder) who was convicted of beating and killing a person?

reacts to someone asking him what he is doing in the neighborhood by physically attacking him, breaking his nose and trying to crack his skull on the sidewalk?

What the Marxist propaganda artists and the race hustlers don't realize yet is that at the trial, the finder of fact is going to need to know if Trayvon was the type of person that might be inclined to swing on a guy who was just asking him a question, and jump on him and try to beat him into a pulp.

The truth will out.

Yep, Travyon stands next to "saints" Tupac and Biggie in thug heaven. In the words of Chris Rock "keepin' it real... real dumb!"

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.

Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?

(the autopsy states she was raped. Don’t think all of these animals didn’t all participate)

And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?

WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?

Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.

Yep, and he also helped and mentored black children. I think this is Obama’s Willie Horton. Obama needs to be impeached right now and not the way they did Clinton. He needs to be thrown out of office and go to prison.
