Frankly, I cant be bothered to shed many tears for George Zimmerman. While apparently having two black eyes, a fractured nose, and an injured back in the scuffle with Trayon Martin, there is a little fact some people seem to be overlooked: George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin.
Does no one remember how, because Travyon was a black kid in a nice neighborhood, wearing a hoodie, Zimmerman stalked him against the orders of 911 operators and killed him.
How he did it doesnt matter. Did Trayvon eventually confront Zimmerman, causing a scuffle? Its possible. But when youre being followed by a man at night, while youre doing nothing wrong, it stands to reason youd want to find out why. We dont know exactly what happened on that tragic night, except that two men entered, but only one left alive.
George Zimmerman deserves no sympathy. He wasnt the product of a broken system. He exploited the system for his own prejudiced gains, to enable him to become a vigilante who hunts down the innocent of society.
Lets mourn Travyon and the countless others killed by a racist law enforcement system, not some murderer who had a few scrapes on his face.
Could not agree with you more....
Then you won’t mind if I break your nose and slam your head into the sidewalk a few times just to knock some sense into your empty, foolish head.
More proof that taxpayer dollars are being wasted trying to “educate” morons. This individual is a moron and appears to have a lot of “issues”.
“Frankly, I cant be bothered to shed many tears for George Zimmerman. While apparently having two black eyes, a fractured nose, and an injured back in the scuffle with Trayon Martin, there is a little fact some people seem to be overlooked: George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin”
Methinks you’re missing the point. His injuries are not brought up to make you feel sorry for him, but to suggest that it wasn’t murder. He might appreciate feeling sorry for him being wrongfully prosecuted, but not for having saved himself.
“because Travyon was a black kid in a nice neighborhood, wearing a hoodie, Zimmerman stalked him against the orders of 911 operators and killed him”
You missed a couple talking points, there. Forgot to mention Zimmerman is white, said “coon,” is a rabid law and order type, livesd in a “gated community,” and so on.
“How he did it doesnt matter”
Great legal mind.
He forgot “self-appointed neighborhood watchman” and “much smaller Trayvon” as well.
When I was younger and visiting my girlfriend in a small town in Colorado. A police ar was following me and finally I got out to ask them what the problem was. They said it was suspicious seeing out of state license plates in their town.
Nothing made me feel entitled to hit them in the face. SO WHAT if someone shows suspicion of you.
One thing that gets too little attention is that on the 911 call when told we don’t need you to follow was his resonse
a) Up yours operator I am going to follow this kid.
b) You are an operator I am not going to listen to your wimpy suggestion.
The media would have you believe it was a or b but it was c.
Didn’t this kid post a similar opinion piece earlier in this saga?
Spoken like someone who’s never owned property in his life.
Ask the kid in twenty years after he’s bought his first house, and someone has broken into his car.
Takeaway from the article: Its OK to assault someone if they approach you or diss you.
Comment #1 on the site is quite good.
“there is a little fact some people seem to be overlooked: George Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin.”
There’s also a little fact being overlooked by the author: the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law.
He certainly wasn’t a nice kid in a black neighborhoodie.
“Theres also a little fact being overlooked by the author: the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law”
Also: the immunity of those who kill in self-defense.
So by this logic, if someone breaks into my house and breaks my nose but I ultimately kill him before he can do more harm, I am the aggressor because I killed him but he only broke my nose?
