The Story Unravels: New Questions about Trayvon Martin's Final Hour
American Thinker ^ | April 9, 2012 | Jeff Lipkes

It was a fable for our times:

Once upon a time, a nice young man set off from his dad's fiancée's home before the NBA All-Star game to buy some Skittles and Arizona Tea for his stepbrother. Although the lad was seventeen, he looked like a cute twelve-year-old. Along came a burly ex-con racist vigilante who didn't like the idea of a young African-American male walking around his gated community at night. The cop-wannabe stalked the frightened boy, cornered him, and then shot him. But the racist police didn't arrest the murderer. The conscience of the nation was stirred. Protests erupted from coast to coast. The gunning down of young, unarmed black males by white Rambos -- and the occasional "white Hispanic" -- is an all-too-common occurrence in the US of A.

Now the MSM narrative is unraveling, thanks to Al Gore's nifty invention, the internet. The average MSNBC viewer may not have the smarts and curiosity to do a Google search, but other people do. A lot of the searches wind up at the sites of the Orlando Sentinel and the city's Fox affiliate, Channel 35, both of which have provided good coverage.

Now other local papers are running stories about the "complexity" of the case.

We've learned a little more about Trayvon Martin. Since his record of suspensions and his posts and pictures, with tats and grill, from his Myspace and Twitter accounts surfaced on the web, columnists are less likely to enthuse about him, as a WaPo blogger did on March 18:

By all accounts, Trayvon was a good kid[.] ... He had dreams of becoming a pilot. He was good at math. ... Trayvon's English teacher described him "as an A and B student who majored in cheerfulness."

"So what?" the left responds....

The outcome will be determined by those who aim. Those who merely carry a gun and shoot will die from well aimed fire

I have a feeling they'll head for the suburbs, exurbs and rural areas this time, thinking that Mr. Obama in the White House will keep them from being punished for looting, mayhem, rape and carjacking. Will we acquiesce or fight?

I'll lay better than even odds that the majority of peaceful, law abiding neighborhoods that are invaded by any pack of thugs and agitators will open their hidden arsenals, slap a clip into their semi-automatic rifles (because we all know that unregistered automatic weapons are not legal, right? ;), and mow down the little bastards like a Toro lawnmower from Hell.

I'm ready. BRING IT.

For a number of years, our Military has been undergoing maneuvers inside a number of cities within the nation. There has been and is an anticipation of a necessity to prepare. Do not know where the authorization came from for this preparation though one maneuver has been done within twenty-five miles of my location. Someone(s) sensed the possible reality early. Makes one wonder how they knew for these types of maneuvers have been taking place for ten plus years.

I guarantee that heading for rural areas may be the last trip any bent on retribution and crime will ever make. Rural areas like mine are chock full of folks who know how to defend themselves. I can count on one hand the number of neighbors who don’t hunt or have weapons for protection. We aren’t soft targets nor will we ever be.

It’s more than that. They’re unlikely to travel out of familiar territory, become lost and isolated when there are plenty of targets nearby. If rioting starts, and right now it looks like it won’t, but this issue is getting heavy and very biased airplay on black radio, the riots will be in black neighborhoods targeting large businesses and Koreans, West Asians, etc. Any store owner or successful person is a target.

I’ve never personally seen a gang fight in which the attackers didn’t have a less than 7 to 1 advantage. I’ve seen several where the advantage was 20-40 to 1. It was scary.

One question.
Who do you think the police will protect his time around?

Be careful what you wish for.

"Ruh-roh. Mr. Zimmerman might be a multi-millionaire before this is all said and done.” - 2ndDivisionVet

I’d love to see him owning a certain network.- Ronin

I’m sure in this Economy he can find the best Attorney who will go after everybody from Spike Lee, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and many others.

George will be a famous as Richard Jewell and the Duke Lacrosse players

But, let us hope, much richer.

Add to your list the organization which should be the central defendant: The Associated Press.        

"People of the same trade seldom meet together even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public or some contrivance to raise prices.” - Adam Smith
People of the journalism trade do not merely “meet together for merriment and diversion,” they are joined at the hip by the Associated Press newswire. The AP is the reason journalism went from a bunch of fractiously independent political entities to a bunch of fronts for a single (extreme leftist) political perspective.

That is what journalism is, and it must be sued as such - the defendants must be the Associated Press, and its membership, collectively and individually. No game of circular finger-pointing, there is no hiding the fact that they are all one bunch, responsible for each other’s actions because they are in league with each other.

IMHO a good lawsuit against the miscreants should go after billions. Especially if you also target Jackson and Sharpton - not as deep pockets but as the muscle alleged in a lawsuit asking for triple damages under RICO.

unfortunately, john morgan is a far left obama supporter. That’s why he wouldn’t even go after spike lee when he ‘repped’ the couple with the wrong address because lee is an obama supporter.

I HOPE Hal Uhrig will fight like a dog for zimmerman.

My earlier point exactly. They are, by nature, cowards. They will only attack in swarms. Picking on one or two at a time with a swarm of thugs in the ‘hood is one thing; taking on a heavily armed white neighborhood is a WHOLE different story.

Heck, they can’t even leave a city when warned by the President on National TV that a category 5 hurricane is heading right towards them. BUT IF they do, bring it on, we’re ready for them.

I live in a rural area. Maybe they will come to my place.

Please come to my place, I just converted one of my AR15’s to 6.8 SPC and I really want to check terminal performance.

John Morgan would go after NBC in a heartbeat even though he is an 0bama supporter. I'd root for any ambulance chaser who'd pick NBC’s deep pockets for what they did to Zimmerman.

my apology for not staying on topic ....

Have long thought about the type of tactics which would be employed, should the cities go into riot mode. Can say one good thing came from zer0's election. The nation prepared and continues to prepare in anticipation of a necessity which one prays never materializes. Yet should the necessity rear its head, (imho) the nation is prepared and well armed.

I attended a gunshow Friday and Saturday in my area. The theme seemed to be that AR weponry will double in value by the inauguration. Rifles and home defense weaponry (Mossberg 930 SPX type shotguns, hi cap pistols, etc.) were the most popular items, but ammo was not moving as well as in January. Also the holo sights and laser hang ons seemed popular. I sold three items very quickly toward the end of the Saturday show. My AR pistol was fondled by many and a Winchester 1300 with ghost ring sight and heat shield sold within minutes of my bringing it into the show. The lightweight AR I built caught lots of attention for ' handling ease for the others in the household'. Interestingly, AKs were not popular this show. Several guys walking WASRs around couldn't find buyers.

Folks seem to sense what is on Obama's agenda for this dying Republic, even the black guy VET I spoke with. Many do not have faith that honest elections will happen in November. And the food storage business at the show was brisk.

The mobbings are training programs by ‘community organizers’. The idea is to riot in the business sector so insurance companies are hurt the most and commerce is stopped. The notion of thug gaggles raiding the burbs is fanciful, not likely. Othuggo’s regime has a target which exploits the stupidity of blacks and leftist white fools who will come when called to riot and mayhem. Those dumb enough to mob stores and shoppers are the useful idiot fodder the democrat elitists will use to create chaos in commerce and thus cause the business, banking, and insurance sectors to demand Othuggo shut the nation down to stop the losses. I’m afraid America is too far gone into dependency to make a turnaround. ... BLOAT

American thinker links to the Waglist article:Evidence that Trayvon Martin Doubled Back, which provides an interesting possibility from looking at the map: Trayvon had enough time to reach the house where he was staying, ditch anything he didn't want found on him, and double back to Zimmerman's truck to confront him and get into a fight with him.

So what happens when they (the black rioters) reach the wealthy suburbs and find that they are not filled with only whites, but there are nice black families living there as well..... how does that play out?

The “son” of POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, Trayvon Martin is beginning to appear as he really was, a Black racist, teenage, thug, gangsta. Without further comment, Black Americans are lost at sea and will remain that way until they get real, drop the racist mantra, join the general American society, and restore the family unit.

Disgruntled, hateful, broken families, lack of education, out of wedlock mothers, with no husbands, multiple abortions, weak, greedy and power leaders, both church & political is no way to go through life in a free society. To begin with, a good look in the reality mirror might do wonders, but.....I doubt it!!! They would rather follow the flim/flam man Obama to chained dependency life on the economic, slave plantation!!! Sad for them and sad for America!!!

They are “uncle Tom’s” to these folks. For most of them, race is not really the issue. Rather, inequality, for which they refuse to take responsibility, is the issue.
