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

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.

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.

A 13-year-old who is one of two key witnesses in the Trayvon Martin shooting felt “pressured” by cops to tailor what he saw, his mom told the Daily News Thursday.

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
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.

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.

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”.

I tried to like Santorum because of his social conservative positions but the more I look at him the more he just looks like Mr. Smug to me.

same here the way things are going I’m beginning to hate the establishment, much of talk radio Hannity the coward phony take note, the elitist like Perino, FOX, Romney just as much as the left.

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.

I understand the mother is now saying the kid could see nothing. Witness intimidation accomplished. Identify the kid to the mob so his parents change the story to protect him and them.

Weird. This is shaping up like Rodney King. The facts were in, the public was shown a small snippet that made the cops look bad, the jury RIGHTLY showed that RK was attacking the officers, while his cohorts obeyed the law.

The MSM as it existed at the time did everything it could to blame George HW Bush. When the jury aquitted, riots broke out. 99% of the rioters had NO idea of the facts or even who the hell Rodney King was.

When 54 black people were killed by...BLACK people and their own neighborhoods burned to a crisp,, guess who was blamed by the media? GHWBush. And being the pu$$y that he was, Bush went after the cops on "civil rights" charges.

How'd that work out for him?

“How’d that work out for him?”

The same way resigning his membership in the NRA, failing to reign in ATF after the Randy Weaver incident, breaking his no new taxes pledge, and letting Saddam Hussein off the hook did.
