Posted on 03/26/2012 3:11:56 PM PDT by QT3.14

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.

I sure as hell wish the ass wipe media would have done their job before the race baiters had upset so many people......

Of course, it all serves a purpose. Obama’s White House advisor, the MSNBC host Al Sharpton, he of the Tawana Brawley debacle, is exposed once again as a fake. Jesse too.

And the Florida/national media, too...shown to be amplifiers of the politics of racism and hate.

Related to the above cartoon is this excerpt Here

Meanwhile, the president hasn't suggested any national soul searching is necessary in the
case of a 13-year old white boy who had gasoline poured on him and then was set on fire by two black teens who said "You get what you deserve, white boy." The boy's
offense? Possibly it stemmed back to an incident in which he tried to answer a question
about Black History Month in school, and his black teacher snapped at him "What would you know about it? You're not our race!"

You can bet it's not because they want to keep his SAT test scores private. BTW, what kind of family has a "family lawyer" on call. One that has to deal with periodic criminal complaint's perhaps?

Most likely, when the son was shot, the parents had lawyers calling and offering to represent them in any wrongful death suit against the housing development, Zimmerman, the police, and anybody else they could think of.

'You get what you deserve, white boy': Boy, 13, doused in gasoline and set alight in racially-motivated attack

This incident was mentioned today by Simon Conway afternoon drive-time host of Des Moines WHO 1040AM.

The undoctored 911 call. The word at 2:18 is "punks" not the racial slur on the doctored tape.

After having read a few of the kid’s tweets I’m very much inclined to believe the shooter.I’m inclined to believe that that kid was capable of something like that.

No, according to his own brother, he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless.

How do we know this? If true that's a **very** revealing fact.

Not only that, but according to the Miami Herold, Martin also wrote “WTF” in graffiti on his locker along with another boy. Also had women’s jewelry on him(Possibly from home burglaries) WOW what a model student and a upstanding citizen this chubby cheek kid is turning out to be

But this is *exactly* how I'd expect a 17 year old son of Osama Obama to be.

It’s self-defense. Period.

If this is,in fact,exactly what happened then the guy obviously should be in the clear.But now that our Community Organizer-In-Chief and the DOJ are involved this will be milked *at least* through the election.

Not to get off topic - but he is probably WR.

That is where the skinny black kids play on my son’s team.

But this is silliness - I’ll bet he doesn’t even play for the school. He was suspended in the fall, and I’ll bet his grades are a joke. The “football player” is probably another family fantasy. He probably played in Middle School - and is “thinking about” going out for the team.

I believe you are mistaken. Trayvon “Slimm” Martin, the one who got shot, used that dartboard (or part of it) for his twitter avatar. The shape of his face, mark beneath eye, and other features are consistent with other photos of T.M.

Many bogus FB pages using the name of Trayvon Martin have been thrown up very recently to muddy the waters.

Based on this kids behavior, I'm beginning to think that Martin was on track to one day be knocked off by one of da brothas' in da Hood.

More likely shivved in prison.

Oh really,then you should tell FOX News they have both of these pictures now and put them up on TV..I don't as a rule watch any of the other networks, but I doubt they have the pictures or they have them but won't put them up..

I am very sorry for this kids death, but we really do not know the whole story..and the media and all the fools are making this into a race matter...Obamais using it for a political moment and he should be ashamed..

We can all see where this thing is going.

The narrative, that Zimmerman stalked Williams and shot him in cold blood, the overzealous neighborhood watch guy, trigger-happy, racist, etc... None of that is going to be borne out by the evidence.

More and more information about Williams, his previous trouble with the law, and how this actually went down is going to contradict the narrative, which is going to lead to an uncomfortable situation where the things that have been said have to be retracted or backed away from.

At that point, responsible people are going to have to hem and haw, and do a lot of “in light of new information” and all that. Of course, the shameless race hustlers will never let it go.

Al Sharpton maintains to this day that Steven Pagones kidnapped Tawana Brawley.

This case is going to wind up in the catalog of famous racial hoaxes, along with Tawana Brawley, Rodney King, DukeLAX and Freddy’s Fashion Mart.

“None of those are facts. Those are statements from Zimmerman.”

Actually, a lot of them (e.g., the Hispanic being on his back with a broken nose, the Black on top of him beating him senseless, the confrontation occuring back near the SUV) are known because of 3 eyewitnesses and clear physcial evidence.

The only thing that relies on Zimmerman’s direct evidence is how the fight started.

The defense would have the burden to prove an on-going assault to prove self-defense -— this is easy to do.

As a result, to defeat the self-defense claim, the prosecution would have the burden to prove “illegal provocation” by the Hispanic started the fight.

The only evidence is that the Black came up on the Hispanic and cold-cocked him. (Also partially confirmed by the fact that the ultimate fight was back by the SUV.)

The Hispanic seems credible. All attempts by race-baiters to show racila bias (he said “coon”!) have been disproven.

Instead, what we now know about the Black is he’s been suspended from school repeatedly, beat up a bus driver, sold drugs, and was caught with burglary tools and stolen jewlery.

Indeed, it sounds like the Hispanic did a great thing ventallating this thug before he committed more serious crimes.

“That tape has the Hispanic saying a vile racial thing about the black guy before they confront.”

You’re behind the curve. The tape has been cleaned up and reviewed by digital forensiv folks. There is no “vile racial thing.”

The little thug got what he needed.
