“senior analyst with the liberal activist group Media Matters” this line gave me a chuckle :)
Senior analyst is the pc title for “lead bullsh*tter”.
The story is saying that the picture on Michelle Malkin’s website, purported to be an older Trayvon, shirtless flashing gang signs was not actually Trayvon. Does anyone know for sure?
Maybe now they’ll issue an apology to Zimmerman.
He is being tried by the media, with little evidence available.
That particular picture is not Trayvon Martin. It’s a different Treyvon martin.
The gold teeth pic is him.
Zimmerman is a Democrat and is completely innocent of any crime. The vicious little thug died in hand-to-hand combat going for Zimmermans gun.
Just another preprogrammed Democrat party propaganda show, similar to the fake Fluke hystrionics and years in advance planned attempt to silence conservative talk radio.
More media dog and pony shows yet to come.
“The first time I saw the pictures the MSM was running of Martin I knew they were not of a 17 year old.”
That’s like me reading about this online and Zimmerman being called “white,” then turning on the tv news and seeing he was actually Hispanic. I literally gasped.
Apparently “done more to debase American news coverage than anyone in history of country” and “oops, never mind, yeah he got it right” is a pretty fine line.
I don’t know for sure, but the pic of the kid flipping the double bird didn’t look like Martin imo.
More interesting is the background photo Trayvon chose to set the tone for his execrable Twitter presence:
Dat dude be rapper Corey Miller, aka C-Murder, who is doing life without parole for beating up and shooting to death 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2002 at a night club in Harvey, Louisiana. Quite the role model for the up and coming gang banger!
So, now we know from where young Trayvon was coming when he asked the Neighborhood Watch guy if he had a problem, the Neighborhood Watch guy said, "No", and Trayvon, feeling his oats, said, "You do, now!" Excellent last words!
I don’t know that he was a vicious little thug.
But we can’t allow this horrible death to be used as an excuse to disarm us.
How do you know what Martin looks like?
From his picture. There is a mark (it looks like a scar)across his left eyebrow. There are other defining marks too.
There will NEVER be an excuse to disarm me. NEVER. NONE. They can try.
And you know this absolute how?
It was not a “horrible death” if he was on top of Z, bashing his skull against the ground. People get killed that way. “Stand your ground” is moot if you are on your back getting beaten into unconsciousness or death.
I've probably missed it, but I haven't seen a lot of discussion about why Zimmerman's lawyer seemed to take Stand Your Ground off the table. At first, that had a bunch of people scratching their head since it seemed like an important and beneficial statute -- but the lawyer indicated that they would not use it.
Of course, as you say, no one needs Stand Your Ground if they are flat on their back, getting their head smashed. In that situation, the shoot can easily be seen as righteous by any rational human.
