If Tingles had a son, he would look like the meter reader.
Way to little and way too late.
I read a quote from a friend of Zimmerman that Trayvon said to him “Yo gonna die tonight “MF”” as he was beating him.
If that is true, I think Zimmerman was certainly justified in the force he used to stop him.
There’s even a high definition frame capture of a small trickle of blood coming down from the wound. A LOT can be missed in video.. It’s not at all like the old ‘film’ days. What was the cop staring at?.. An ingrown hair? I doubt it. This will backfire on the left worse than ‘Fluke’ did. The cops are doing a good job of withholding information on this case so there can be one huge collective laugh at the media, black panthers, etc. later..
Yup. Rick “race-baiter” Sancimonious lost my support with that one...
Not to mention the political fallout.
It's going to be sweet.
Maybe Zimmerman can claim he was simply firing a warning shot into the air and could not help it that Trevon was in the line of fire?
I hope you are right. I don't know a more worthless group of people when it comes to accurately reporting news. Of course it of little importance to me, I never watch MSNBC. But for that matter I watch very very little TV at all.
I can truly say that politics really sucks with today’s Media! They simply have no clue to the problems that they are causing..
Only with a shot to the medula oblongota (sp?) Or heart. Or in Hollywood.
Notice location of body (under yellow tarp) and distance to sidewalk in his video of that night. Teen shot and killed in neighborhood altercation
Monday, 27 Feb 2012
I also note that the body position is vertical with sidewalk.
If this guy was even 1% guilty, with all this pressure from the White House, NAACP, DOJ, UN, NBP, media, etc, he’d be in jail right now.
fistfight deaths most by hitting head on concrete:
coma after shoved into wall
brain injury no external evidence
Now that the facts are coming out, it’s a “complex case.”
As he was attempting to disarm him. Zimmermans firearm was revealed late in the fight, and Z says TM tried to obtain possession and control of it.
ROBERT ZIMMERMAN, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN'S FATHER: After nearly a minute of being beaten, George was trying to get his head off the concrete, trying to move with Trayvon on him, into the grass. In doing so, his firearm was shown.CNN Newsroom - March 29, 2012
Trayvon Martin said something to the effect of "You're going to die now or you're going to die tonight," something to that effect. He continued to beat George and at some point, George pulled his pistol and did what he did.
ROBERT ZIMMERMAN, JR., GEORGE ZIMMERMAN'S BROTHER: Well, and -- you know, I take a -- I take a pause to that whole, you know, conjecture, again, of pulled out a gun and shot him. That's absolutely not fact.Piers Morgan - March 29, 2012
MORGAN: That's not what happened, then?
ZIMMERMAN: No, it is not what happened.
MORGAN: But he did pull out a gun and shoot him, right?
ZIMMERMAN: Well, he stopped someone from disarming him and shooting him. He didn't pull out a gun and shoot him. George showed tremendous restraint --
MORGAN: But he had the gun on him, right?
ZIMMERMAN: He had a permit to carry that gun --
MORGAN: Where was the gun?
ZIMMERMAN: The gun, I believe, was in his -- inside -- tucked inside his pant waist --
ZIMMERMAN: In a waist holster.
MORGAN: So he has pulled it out and he has fired it?
ZIMMERMAN: Well, he has taken control of his firearm, he prevented his firearm from being taken from him and used against him. And that's called saving your life.
MORGAN: Right. So you believe, as a family -- is this what George told you the next day? That Trayvon was trying to grab his gun to use against him?
ZIMMERMAN: My father also is on record yesterday night saying that. And again, what Trayvon said was, either to the effect of, I believe, this is going to be easy, you die tonight or you have a piece, you die tonight. And then attempted to disarm him. So when you say, "have a bag of Skittles and an iced tea," nobody just stood there with a bag of Skittles and iced tea. You return force with force when somebody assaults you. George was out of breath, he was barely conscious, his last thing he remembers doing was moving his head from the concrete to the grass, so that if he was banged one more time he wouldn't be -- you know, wearing diapers for the rest of his life and being spoon fed by his brother, and there would have been George dead had he not acted decisively and instantaneously in that moment when he was being disarmed by --
MORGAN: I mean, there were people watching this saying, well, the family would say this, they're protecting their brother. He may well have invented this whole story. Once he realized what he'd done. He may have just thought, the only way I can get out of this is to use this "Stand Your Ground" law, and under Florida law, and just invent this whole story. He may have inflicted the injuries to himself. We don't know, do we? Nobody actually knows.
... and the MSM being a giant echo chamber of liberalism rapidly amped up the party line from the White House / Media Matters. Sort of like speaker feedback.
Now you suddenly see all these carrion feeders pulling back, reconsidering, having internal reviews. The letters from the lawyers must have hit the mail.
The MSM will drop this story like a hot potato when they realize it doesn't support liberal elite hatred of conservatives.
It is nothing like a movie.
