Disgusting! ABC Outs 13 Year-Old Witness to Trayvon Martin Killing
Gateway Pundit ^ | 3/29/12 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/29/2012 3:03:18 PM PDT by Nachum

ABC Outs Child Witness— ABC News outed the 13 year-old minor who witnessed the Trayvon Martin killing. The minor said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before the shooting.

WRKO reported on the second witness who confirmed that Zimmerman was attacked.

ABC News reported:

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.

Zimmerman had claimed he had called police about Martin, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him.

The new information is the most complete version yet of what Zimmerman claims happened on the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the teenager.

In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman’s description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin.

Nice...WTF is going on here in this case!!!!!!!!! The politicians who feed this racial fire and the media who feed it should be hanged. Period. They’re gonna cause someone to be killed, and not the people they want killed.This encourages people to harass and threaten witnesses.
How crazy and irresponsible is this and a big WTF at the state of Florida for releasing this to the media.
SHAME!

If this goes to trial the kids statement is admissible with or without him.
Tampering with witnesses is illegal and whoever outed the child should be jailed.

Well, if ABC gets the witness killed, then they can “report” on “yet another tragedy”.

Shame on you ABC. But then, that would imply you have a conscience.

If that child is hurt or injured in any way or if anyone is hurt or killed because of the irresponsible reporting of the MSM they should be held accountable and criminal charges against the reporters that promoted it. CNN and ABC should be shut down.

Roseanne Barr twitted the address of George Zimmerman’s PARENTS. Much as I hated OJ, it would never occur to me threaten his mom, by posting her address. I don’t remember the media posting the address of the Columbine killer’s parents. Probably not hard to find, but the parents didn’t kill anyone.

Evidently it takes a leftist media inspired mob village to lynch a child...make a Hispanic guy a white guy and get a 13 year old into witness protection. Kid’s life will never be the same. Bastards.

That’s where he blew it with me. I was leaning his way over Newt because I thought he was better than that. Now he’s at the exact same level. Newt’s comments were not exactly helpful, but at least he didn’t step in the doo-doo with them.

This whole thing is looking crazy from my perspective overseas. I can’t imagine what people are talking or thinking about in the halls of power of Asia’s capital cities, but it certainly is not good!

Obama’s lefty media has its white-racist-killer/poor-black-victim paradigm to enforce, and if need be, they will basically put a ‘contract’ out on a 13-year-old witness whose testimony conflicts with their paradigm. That’s the way the media swings. They are abject evil.

I'll never forget this filthy POS showing up for a court ordered Clinton accessory meeting, with him wearing a filthy shirt, hair messed up, day old beard, drinking from a bottled water container with tons of contempt all over his face. What a piece of garbage.

I hadn't thought about THAT angle. It's like Sacco/Vanzetti all over again. But Sacco WAS guilty. Vanzetti I'm not sure about.

But this is 2012, not 1927. Forensics have come a LONG way. Jesse Jackson claiming that Martin was "shot in the back of the head" can EASILY be proven or disproven.

And if the coroner saw such a wound, Zimmerman would have been immediately charged with at least manslaughter. He would have never been released.

BTW, what was determined to be the cause of death?, GSW, no doubt, but until we have the autopsy report it's all speculation. Ironically FL is a state that does not consider autopsy reports public info. After Dale Earnhardt, they made sure to seal autopsy records.

This is bigger than Florida or the truth. This is about this case having been chosen (incorrectly) as the case that’s supposed to remind all of us that we’re racists, and therefore we need to re-elect the great uniter for another 4-year term.

After Obama weighed in publicly on this they became comitted to the cause. They need to forge forward with the mission... so what if there are some innocent causalities in the process...its for a greater cause.

Where is Santorum’s retraction?

There is no "retraction. It's too late anyways, he's had plenty of time.
 
Santorum Pronounces Zimmerman Guilty Before Trial, or Charge
 
  http://cdn.breitbart.com/_res/img/logo.png
Republican presidential contender Sen. Rick Santorum appeared on CBS' Face the Nation this morning and pronounced George Zimmerman guilty of murder in the first degree.
 
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7088/6880498218_27a3b447eb_q.jpg

Admitting that he was "not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind," Santorum nevertheless said that Zimmerman, who shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin while participating in a neighborhood watch last month, "has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this." He added that Zimmerman's motive had been "malicious."

The mental state of the alleged perpetrator, the motive, and the question of whether he pursued the alleged victim, are both critical in determining guilt. Santorum's conclusions are consistent with first-degree murder under Florida law.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6Vljm_du03w/T3QkCg0HBsI/AAAAAAAALoY/I115YkwLN5A/s400/Trayvon+GANGSTA+03.jpg

As a lawyer, Santorum ought to know that Zimmerman would be entitled to a presumption of innocence if he were facing trial--and he has not even been charged with a crime.

The leftist media has finally jumped the shark. They just cannot help themselves, using the same old time worn template; whiteman=evil, blackman=good. They just don’t realize that this is getting really, really old and it will not be the boon for Obama that they think it will be. Instead, it will backfire, millions of Americans are seeing this whole lynch mob spectacle for what it is. As Clarence Thomas once said...this is just another “electronic lynching”.

This election should have been a shoe in but instead they attacked who we want and won’t bring forward many issues the left does not want to talk about , hell even homosexual agenda has proven to be a negative for the Dem party and still the GOP cannot even talk about that but instead appease these people.
