Why, Mr. Moderator, is this article found to be objectionable by you?

Removing legitimate news articles from legitimate sources should not be the rule here on Free Republic. And, incidentally, it's not free as I contribute to the website on a regular basis.

Tracy Martin said he plans to organize a Trayvon Martin retreat to mentor young black males about conflict resolution.

So he plans to begin mentoring now after his son is dead?

Just because some blog posted the article in its entirety, and you reposted it here, doesn't void the complaint that the Orlando Sentinel submitted to FR.

Updated FR Excerpt and Link Only or Deny Posting List due to Copyright Complaints

The courtesy of an explanation regarding the Orlando Sentinel, of which I am a subscriber and contributor, to the puzzled poster would be most welcome.

I will contact the Orlando Sentinel and find the reason they won’t even allow an article to be excepted.

I guess that GOP USA is in trouble.

After additional reflection I believe that posting articles which we have written, based on facts gathered by others, and labeled ‘Vanity’ would be a much better option.

How do the other sources get away with the alleged infringement? (eg: GOP USA, et al.)

Free Republic is not ‘free’ because you donate money to it?

What an odd thing to say...

Are you a staff writer for the Orlando Sentinel?

No a reader and subscriber whose letters, even as verbose are they are sometimes, get published every time.

Ok, so the article “belongs” to the Sentinel, and is credited to one of its staff writers. Sentinel articles, when they are posted here on FR, must be excerpted to 300 words or less, or 50% of content when the wordcount falls below 600, according to FR guidelines. Please note that other sources do not allow reposting of any text at all.

How’s this for an angle in the Trayvon case?

If the angelic Trayvon was lurking around with his hoodie up and pulled over his face, as depicted in all those pictures, there is no way that Zimmerman could tell that he was a black kid. Why hasn’t that been part of the discussion? Oh, yes, it makes sense. Sorry for the interruption, back to your regularly scheduled race baiting and covering up the wanna-be thug characteristics of St. Trayvon Martin.

Maybe we need a new law. We could call it

The Getting Beat to Death is No Excuse for Violence Against Your Attacker Law.

That law would have convicted Zimmerman. It's perfect.

I hate to keep beating this dead horse, but couldn’t you have excerpted it for me. It would have been greatly appreciated.

Thanks for whatever consideration you give.

Lawyer and “Scheme Team” Ben Crump said the following, as reported in the article:
“You cannot pick a fight and then kill the person and then claim ‘stand your ground’,” said Crump, standing alongside Trayvon’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.”

Woof, WOOF! Straw dog time, and Schemer Crump is trying to loose a whole pack of straw dog arguments.

That black shyster made a career of race based litigation, culminating in the Zimmerman case. Had Schemer Crump not hired a PR firm to create a known false story regarding the soi disssant “No Limits Nigga”, this legal circus would never have happened.

Crump know quite well what the SYG laws say. He is just lying to rabble rouse gullible blacks. Crump is ill advised to keep stirring the race hate pot. The wise do not initiate a race conflict when they are members of a small minority and an easily identifiable one at that.

Lawyers such as Crump are why Americans view lawyers as they do.

It would be better to credit the original publisher, instead of driving hits to a blog.

Zimmerman should go after Crump and others with a defamation of character lawsuit.

If these two had been better parents their son would not be dead.

Call it the Trayvon FERAL yout act.

Where children from failed families who form their own culture of crime, theft, violence and everything common to being contrary to good social values get to do what they want, impune from retribution...

The black community needs to take some responsibility. Here we see Sharptons crap seeping out onto the street resulting in Trayvon biting off more than he could chew.

Tracy Martin said he plans to organize a Trayvon Martin retreat to mentor young black males about conflict resolution.

I'm waiting for the demoKKKrats to come out with a Trayvon Martin Song... They could use this for a model:

I mean, when you think about it, the Nazi version of Trayvon Martin was named Horst Wessel...

I think it's well past time for the lights to go out in this overplayed theater. I'm ready to projctile hurl if I hear one more snivelling, phony, maudlin, dead-horse-beating word about Crayvon or his "Where-were-you-before-your-delinquent-thug-puke-went-off-the-rails?" excuse for parents.

They've milked this ill-conceived, wholly-fabricated, patently unfunny joke for way more than it was ever worth, and they've still got nothing. Better luck next time, O'Bungwad and Holder. You picked the wrong fake racism case to hitch your hopes for national upheaval on.

Only the Professional Race Merchants and their pitiful handful of ignorant, pigment-challenged outrage-puppets are even paying attention to this farcical theatre macabre any longer.

Pathetic.

Did you hear of the disney movie cancelled over Travyons:
Disney’s new film called

” Jet Black “

the non racist version of

” Snow White “

has been put on hold:

All 7 dwarfs:

Dealer, Stealer, Mugger, Car Jack, Drive By, Pimp and Baby Daddy

have refused to sing “ Hi Ho “

They also say they have no friggin’ intention of singing:

“It’s off to work we go”

My message to the "parents" is this...I,a creepy a$$ cracker,hereby puts the world on notice that *any* punk,of *any* age,of *any* race or ethnicity will have the top of his/her head blown off if I come to even *suspect* that he/she intends to beat my head against a concrete sidewalk.

Are we clear on that...you worthless,multi million dollar settlement seeking race pimps?

That means *you* Mr & Mrs NoLimitsNigga.

Actually, they got a cool million from the Home Owner's Association. Only way they could afford to continue to beat this dead horse.
