Zimmerman is no victim (The "wisdom" of the young)
The Albany Times-Union High School Blog ^ | May 17, 2012 | Devin Wallace

Posted on 05/17/2012 11:53:11 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Frankly, I can’t 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 doesn’t matter. Did Trayvon eventually confront Zimmerman, causing a scuffle? It’s possible. But when you’re being followed by a man at night, while you’re doing nothing wrong, it stands to reason you’d want to find out why. We don’t know exactly what happened on that tragic night, except that two men entered, but only one left alive.

George Zimmerman deserves no sympathy. He wasn’t 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.

Let’s mourn Travyon and the countless others killed by a racist law enforcement system, not some murderer who had a few scrapes on his face.

No doubt he's just parroting his teachers and/or parents. Maybe he should go to work for Ben Crump, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton or the DNC.

Hey Devin,

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.

Thanks,

L

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.

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.

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.
c) OK

The media would have you believe it was a or b but it was c.

Devin Wallace:


other notable entries by this enlightened blogger:
"Conservatives continue to deny facts"
"Killed because he was black: Justice for Trayvon Martin"
"The white house, not the Christ house"
"Racism alive and well in Republican Party"
"Experience from Occupy Wall Street"
"Execute the death penalty"

..and this segment from one of his blogs tells you all you need to know:
"But I’m not too sad I can’t have a personal Groban, who would ease me out of my morning sleep with a gentle rendition of You Raise Me Up that eventually reaches a powerful climax as I rise from my blankets, hair tousled just right, a bit of last nights drool on my cheek"

“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.

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?

From all the reports it appears Zimmerman should not have been arrested ,Sadly the cops and politicians are afraid of the mobs..
We appear to be heading for a mob riot , guns and all..

Now there’s a snot nosed liberal kid without a clue, who deserves to have some good ol’ fashioned minority black-on-white Trayvon Martin head bashing whooped up on him. He needs to be dropped off in the middle of Detroit about 10 pm or so, and see if he makes it out alive!

Just another one of the many brain dead sheep zombies who only regurgitate the bile fed to them by their teachers, the MSM, Hollywood and MTv.

It’s an example of how education is being used to brainwash young people into being good little sheep.

I posted a reply to Devon on this article. Let’s see if they have the guts to allow it. I don’t believe they will. Here is what I wrote.

What a bunch of BS. When Zimmerman was following Martin, Martin took off running. The police dispatcher told Zimmerman that they didn’t need him to follow Martin so Zimmerman said “OK” and went back to his car. At that time Martin had lost Zimmerman and was safe. He could have went back to his fathers Girl Friends house and would still be alive today if he had. Instead, little Treyvon (he was 6ft 2inches and 190 lbs) circled back around and confronted Zimmerman. Martin then attacked Zimmerman and having sucker punched him held Zimmerman down on the ground and was beating his head against the sidewalk. Witnesses say this is what they saw. Martin was on top of Zimmerman and was beating him and telling him that he was going to kill him. Zimmerman then fought to free his gun and shot Martin. Rightfully so. Martin was the one who assaulted Zimmerman and initiated the confrontation. He was the one who acted with violence first. It’s not a crime to follow someone. If it were a bunch of us would be dead for walking behind someone on the street.

The kid who wrote this article is ignorant of the situation. They are reacting with emotion and not logic. Besides the poor spelling, grammar and punctuation, it is a sad statement on this kids education that he/she is so brainwashed by the media and race baiters that they would put something like this in writing. I hope this Devon kid isn’t planning on a career in journalism. There are enough idiots out there who call themselves journalists. No need to add one more.

To be fair though, he should be armed with printouts of all his liber-gibberish blog posts so he plead with the thugs to read them before deciding to beat him senseless. Those blog posts should be enough to protect him right?

Liberal employers aren't going to stay employers for long. One can't manage a business from a tent in Zuccotti park. Conservatism is a quality of a successful businessman.

Which means Devlin will have to expend some effort to find a job - assuming, of course, that he has an intention to do so at some point in his life. Employers of any political orientation - even liberals - will find his blog and ask themselves "Do we really need an uninformed idiot in our midst who makes a decision regardless of facts? That's not a smart thing to do in a business."

The author is revealed in the very title of this sad article. For his world to work, there must be victims.

There is no such thing as personal responsibility, the rule of law, justice or right and wrong in this addled mind.

There are only victims who are entitled, and those who need to support victims. Individual merit and actions are nothing, groups and race are everything.

This is the racism of the left on display. The author is a bigot, willing to give victim Trayvon a pass for any criminal behavior because he was a member of a victim race and his life was ended by someone who doesn’t enjoy equal victim status, and who chose to defend himself, rather than wait for the state to come save him while he was beaten, perhaps to death.

It’s time to quit playing nice and call out these racists for what they are.
