There is a reason other than Lewis’s normally ignorant historical epistomology that accounts for his use of the description of thousands rather than dozens of seemingly lynched blacks. The implications of THOUSANDS of lynched blacks rather than dozens is more inflammatory, particularly when you wish to agitate a mob.
We need to oppose such careless demagogery with fact whenever and wherever we can, lest it become common knowledge and conventional wisdom. Too many other unchallenged premises by the left have become ingrained; i.e. that conservatives are nazis and facists when the truth is that their beliefs are more akin to those shared ly the left.
He was 6'0" and skinnier than Obama, Zimmerman was 5'9" and built like a brick outhouse.
The arrest report does corroborate other statements I made, that the police reported Zimmerman was found with his back wet with grass stains, the back of his head was bloody, his nose was bleeding, and he was treated at the scene. Martin was found face down on the grass. Zimmerman had a Kel Tek 9mm. Other reports say the weapon had a full magazine, which indicates that only one round was fired, one in the chamber. Media reports were saying multiple shots but that is untrue.
Anyway, still sounds like self-defense to me, let a jury sort it out.
