  • ‘Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story’: Paramount Network Docuseries Gets Premiere Date & Trailer

    Paramount Network has slotted July 30 at 10 PM for the premiere of Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. The network also unveiled the full trailer for the six-part original docuseries, which recounts the life and legacy of Trayvon Martin, whose 2012 shooting death polarized the nation and gave rise to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Trayvon Martin was an unarmed 17-year-old African American high school student shot and killed by a neighborhood watch member in the Sanford, Florida community on February 26, 2012 where he was visiting a friend with his father. George Zimmerman was acquitted of a second-degree murder...

    In what may be the most reckless bit of leftist posturing yet, billionaire multimedia mogul Jay-Z has none too subtly asked his followers to kill George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin five years ago. Jay-Z apparently added a line to a new release by the hip-hop artist Drake. “I got your president tweeting/I won't even met with him/Y'all killed X and let Zimmerman live/Streets is done.” “X” refers to rapper XXXTentacion who was gunned down in South Florida last week. “Drake” was trending on Twitter Friday morning as was “Scorpion” as was “Zimmerman.” The...

Warren was hired by a production company to help find people who could be interested in participating in a documentary about [Trayvon] Martin.... An investigation by the county sheriff's office earlier this year found that Warren reached out to Zimmerman in September and gave him his contact information. Zimmerman became upset that his family was contacted to possibly participate in the documentary, the documents state. He then allegedly sent the private investigator threatening texts and emails...

    The former Sanford, Florida neighborhood watch volunteer, who was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, told Big League Politics Hillary R. Clinton’s suggestion that Capitol Hill Republicans were partners in Sunday’s spree-shooting in Las Vegas was a disgrace. “Frankly, I am just disgusted that Hillary Clinton made the comments that she did without out knowing anything—and that is the most dangerous thing that anyone in politics can do at this point,” said George Zimmerman, who was a neighborhood watch volunteer the Feb. 26, 2012 evening Martin jumped him and struggled for his gun.

    Rapper Eminem released a brand-new track ahead of the final presidential debate titled “Campaign Speech.” The seven-minute freestyle rap covers a wide range of controversial news events that have surfaced during this election season — from the killing of Trayvon Martin, to Charleston church gunman Dylann Roof, to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his anti-cop demonstrations. Given the rap’s title, it’s no surprise that Donald Trump gets a mention. What is surprising, however, is the fact that Eminem of all people chose to bash Trump and his supporters, considering how much he and the Republican nominee have in common.

    Three jurors from the George Zimmerman trial are going on national television to defend their controversial verdict — one that sparked protests across the country — and legal analysts say they could perform a public service. “People don’t understand you have to follow the law,” juror Madelin Rivera said in an interview. “They give directions to the jury, and you follow that.” Rivera (known as juror B-29 during the trial), Amy Tronolone (D-40) and Christine Barry (B-51) appear in “The Jury Speaks: George Zimmerman” at 9 p.m. Monday on Oxygen. The series also talks to jurors in the trials of...

    Almost five years ago, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a "neighborhood watch" member as he walked home from a convenience store where he had purchased a juice drink and a package of Skittles. George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon, believed him to be "possibly dangerous" because of his race and the fact that he was wearing a hoodie. Trayvon's murder – and Zimmerman's eventual acquittal – incited nation-wide outrage and was part of launching the powerful Black Lives Matter movement. To this day, Trayvon's name serves as a reminder of the progress that is necessary in...

    It wasn’t supposed to take Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin five years to write a book about the death of their son, Trayvon Martin. But their grief has made finding the words unbearable until now. Martin’s parents collaborated to write “Rest In Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin,” published Tuesday by Spiegel & Grau. The book recounts the journey of two grieving parents, thrust into the spotlight by tragedy and on some days, still as close to their loss as the day he died. “The calendar says five years, but it seems like just a few months,” Sybrina Fulton...

    The Black Lives Matter movement began as a hashtag in July 2013 immediately after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Although the movement would be reinforced along the way by any number of lies -- “Hands up don’t shoot” comes quickly to mind -- not enough attention has been paid to the original lie, one that may eventually launch a thousand riots before it burns itself out, namely that Trayvon Martin was an innocent little boy. On the night of February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed the seventeen-year-old Martin. For a week...

    George Zimmerman — who was acquitted of killing an unarmed black teen — said he was punched in the face for allegedly bragging about the fatal shooting. Zimmerman called 911 to report that he was assaulted by a man at a restaurant in Sanford, Florida, over the weekend where he was discussing the 2012 death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, 32, told authorities the man approached his table and said: “You’re bragging about that?” and punched him.
