Trayvon Martin's Shooter Defended By Fellow Neighborhood Watch Captain
nbcmiami.com ^ | 20 March, 2012 | Jeff Burnside

Posted on 03/20/2012 9:36:58 PM PDT by marktwain

A Sanford neighbor of George Zimmerman and fellow neighborhood watch captain in their gated community came to his defense Tuesday, saying that he shot Miami teenager Trayvon Martin after numerous burglaries at The Retreat at Twin Lakes.

Frank Taaffe pointed out the circumstances that he believes led his 28-year-old neighbor to react the way he did on the night of Feb. 26: eight burglaries within 15 months, most done by young black males, he said.

"The stage was already set. It was a perfect storm,” Taaffe said. “I think any time you use a weapon, there are certain anger issues working.”

NBC 6 could not immediately confirm the burglary statistic Taaffe cited in a phone call to Sanford Police Tuesday night.

Martin, 17, picked up Skittles and iced tea from a 7-Eleven that Sunday, then headed back towards his father’s girlfriend's home on a rainy, drizzly night. Martin put on his hoodie and ran to take cover. Zimmerman spotted him, got out of his car and followed him.

In Trayvon Martin's final phone call with his own girlfriend, according to Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump, he could be heard saying “Why are you following me?” and Zimmerman replying “What are you doing around here?”

Their confrontation ended with Martin getting shot in the chest.

“This guy looks like he’s up to no good … he looks black,” Zimmerman told a police dispatcher from his car. His father has said that Zimmerman is Hispanic, grew up in a multiracial family, and is not racist.

Twin Lakes’ population is ethnically mixed. A few residents said there is tension within the gated community.

“I think he had fed-up issues. He was mad as hell and wasn't going to take it anymore,” Taaffe said of Zimmerman.

He insisted, however, that Zimmerman cared about all his neighbors.

"George is a congenial, amiable, admirable person,” he said. "He had a passion and a care for this neighborhood to ensure the safety of everybody here. And, furthermore, George is no Rambo."

Taaffe said that Zimmerman actually was appointed as a watch captain, despite reports that he appointed himself to the post.

He said he believes his neighbor acted in self-defense. That is what Zimmerman told police.

Zimmerman has not been charged, despite growing calls for his arrest.

"It’s really sad that he's already been convicted in the public media and has already been sentenced to the gas chamber,” Taaffe said. “Let's let justice do its job."

At the same time, Martin’s death is “devastating,” he said.

”It's a tragic event – we can’t bring that boy back,” he said. “I wish we could.”

A report that much of the media depicition of George Zimmerman as a Rambo wannabe may not be accurate.

Thank you for posting this article.

I have been recommending patience since this story first broke.

Eventually all of the facts will come out.

There is no need to rush to condemn Mr. Zimmerman.

“His father has said that Zimmerman is Hispanic, grew up in a multiracial family, and is not racist.”

So, does the black race card trump the Hispanic one? In more and more of this country (and I suspect in Florida), it doesn’t. Hope this brings a lot of publicity to our race issues (all of them).

Please tell me there is more to the story than just a "fear" of burglaries in the area. If that's this guy's defense, he's toast.

There is quite a bit more, which is why he has not been arrested yet.

I think the rule is if a Hispanic person commits a crime, he’s counted as white. If a Hispanic person is the victim of a crime, he’s Hispanic or “a person of color.”

“...fed up, mad as hell and wasn’t going to take it anymore...”
sure sounds like a wannabe Dirty Harry to me. Lock him up. Instead of observing and reporting, he confronted a scared young black guy who up to the point where he fatally crossed paths with Zimmerman was doing absolutely nothing wrong. IMO Zimmerman was the instigator of the confrontation...

The media have apparently decided to obsess over this case. The way they are presenting it, it’s a senseless crime. Whether that is the case may come out sooner or later, but the way emotions are being played on, if Zimmerman is not found guilty, this could be another Rodney King situation.

It doesn’t matter if he’s had 99 failings, in terms of not catching black criminals.

He should have been following procedure of gathering information only and only acting, if he actually caught the person in the act of doing something.

I see it that way as well.

The emotional play is incredible.

It was only today that I learned that Trayvon was almost 18 and six foot three inches tall.

All the pictures that I have seem make it appear that he was a little boy.

I've read that Zimmerman called 911 forty-six times in thirteen months, roughly the same time period.

Either he averted a lot of crimes - or he was over-reactive.

Meanwhile, I do not expect this story to get anything like the same national play, even though it represents a more serious, because more frequent, problem.

And of course, the MSM are not running the Zimmerman/Martin story as a man bites dog story, but as representative of deep-rooted, not uncommon evils in our society.

I don't know - this excerpt makes it sound like he was exactly that:

"Martin, 17, picked up Skittles and iced tea from a 7-Eleven that Sunday, then headed back towards his father’s girlfriend's home on a rainy, drizzly night. Martin put on his hoodie and ran to take cover. Zimmerman spotted him, got out of his car and followed him.

It has been reported from the beginning that Mr. Zimmerman's defense is that he was attacked by Mr. Martin and shot in self-defense.

Clever and biased journalism. Dispatchers ask for race, that's why he mentions he's black. Nice use of "..." to leave out the dispatcher's question.

Its terrible that someone died. I’d like to know what happened that caused him to resort to deadly force. Was he trying to make some sort of Citizens Arrest?

But I tell ya, we have got to be proactive and if we wait for the cops to get there, it will be too damn late.

And had been suspended for 10 days from his high school, which is why he was staying at his father's house in the first place.

The only disciplinary offense which carries a 10 day suspension is fighting, although it is possible to get 10 days for repeated offenses of other types.

Anyone else notice that the papers and press coverage always show a picture of Zimmerman that make him look like a perp but the ones shown of Trayvon are cleancut pictures of him from a much younger time looking very sweet and innocent+?

Here’s the thing...the Fed guys will convince some Grand Jury of some terrible thing. Then you go to a Florida court-house, and attempt to pick twelve jurors who have never been robbed or threatened in their life. All George needs....is one of the jurors to have experienced some robbery or assault in their life, and they will stall the whole case. If you ask me....the local cops and prosecutor know this, and see a court case as a waste of time. Let the Feds waste their money and resources on a case that hinges on twelve jurors reaching an almost impossible decision (at least in Florida).

Although this is interesting, it does not really matter. Zimmerman is the one that started this deadly chain of events. Trayvon was obviously defending himself from Zimmerman.

Apparently, on one of the 911 calls, Zimmerman is heard using a racial slur. I bet pretty soon he will be charged with a hate crime. Thank goodness the shooter isn’t white, or else the MSM would’ve had a field day. I do hope justice is served, somehow I don’t believe this Zimmerman character.

As I have told my kids, if some stranger is following you, try to get to someplace safe where he can't get at you. If you can't do that, try to elude him. If you can't do that and he lays his hands on you or threatens you, you're justified in doing whatever you have to do to get away or to disable him and get away. Under no circumstances approach a stranger who is not a cop calling to you from a car. If someone should try to get you into a car, do whatever you have to do to get away, because chances are that once you get under his control in his car, you will almost never be able to get away alive.

So you know all the facts? Did you do your own investigation?
Don't get me wrong the guy may be guilty but I would like a complete investigation by competent law enforcement. Not the media putting cameras in front of people and calling it facts.
On the news this morning they are now saying the so called racial slur was the word punk.

When I put on my hoodie, I feel like I've got "cover" to commit a crime! But this is South Florida—where this past winter—I needed a hoodie only one morning.

I think the former will be amended, since the numbers favor Hispanics, while the latter will be further reinforced. They certainly have no “white guilt”, and are fighting blacks for the same freebies.

Since the 2000 census (when Hispanics passed blacks for the first time in numbers), the old dynamics are out the window; nobody even pretends to care what “black leaders” think, and simply loads up on Hispanics to meet quotas. They are fighting for the same freebies, and the Hispanics have the clout; here in NJ cities are electing Hispanic mayors to reflect their displacement of blacks in neighborhoods, the workplace, and in the Democratic Party leadership (Senator Menendez being the most visible - remember there was no black Senators to sign their document when the Congressional Black Caucus opposed Bush winning the 2000 election - in heavily Hispanic Florida?).
