I agree with West. Local authorities did a lousy job of investigating the incident, and there needs to be a thorough and unbiased investigation.
Did they? I didn’t know that...
Still trolling after all these years, huh!
The local authorities have done a masterful job of gathering the evidence in this case, and all of it goes in Zimmerman’s favor.
You constantly subject FR to public disgrace.
Explain your claim and present your proof.
Mexicans shooting blacks is a normal day here in LA.
Trayvon Martin was walking through a gated community which had experienced numerous thefts by black youths. Note: gated community = private property.
He was noticed by a member of the community watch, a Mr. Zimmerman, who pursued the 6’-3”, 200 lb. highschool football player, loudly asking why he was on the property and what he was doing. When he couldn’t get Tryvon to stop, he tried to return to his vehicle.
Two witnesses say they saw the assault on Mr. Zimmerman, a small, pudgy Hispanic male, by the much larger Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin has been described as sitting on Mr. Zimmerman’s chest, beating the smaller man’s face with his fists.
When the police FINALLY arrived, they found Mr. Zimmerman lying prone on the ground with a broken nose and bloody contusions to his head. Mr. Martin was dead, a bullet hole in his chest.
1. Mr.Zimmerman was where he belonged.
2. Mr.Martin was supposedly “passing through”.
3. Mr.Zimmerman was assaulted and severly injured, as two witnesses attest.
4. Mr.Martin ended up dead.
Was the shooting in self-defense? The police believe Mr.Zimmerman was where he belonged, as he lived in the gated community, and was assaulted with violent intent. The “Castle doctrine” fits.
No, I do not agree with Rep.West.
Note: all the above facts were garnered from threads posted yesterday on Free Republic. Amazingly, even the Boston Herald had an article on this incident.
Oh, you were there? Great! We can expect your first-hand report on FR.
See post 335.
They cuffed Zimmerman, took him into custody and took him downtown for questioning, entering his weapon into evidence.
They immediately turned the scene over to major crimes to investigate.
They canvassed the neighborhood, taking statements from all witnesses. None of them contradicted Zimmerman’s account.
I’m not a LEO. What steps were missed?
