And I’m sure he was suspended from school because he was late a few times...
911 operators have no power to order a citizen to do anything.
Hell of a thing, ain't it? We know people heard him calling for help and I could hear at least one adult male voice in the background of a 911 call. There had to be more and not one person answered those cries for help. America ain't what it used to be.
Listen again ... "f***ing c**n".
Maybe stop drinking from the bottle that says “Drink Me”.
From what I’ve read, his school records are sealed by request from family. I wonder if he has a rap sheet.
Shouldn’t it be “Trayvon All Growed Up” /s
Bet you won’t see these pics all over the place.
From his FB now scrubbed.
Constitution...rule of law...innocent until proven guilty. America.
“Teenagers have been doing odd irrational things for all of recorded history. “
I had five teenagers in the house for a few years,believe me I remember those days.
On “Criminal Minds” once they said that they don’t profile anyone under 18 because teenagers usually profile as psychopaths. I thought that was quite humorous.
Well, well, well indeed. By the way, what the hell kind of name is Trayvon anyway?
A name of color.
So what?? Wow, posts like this make it evident to me that you’re into some sort of racial profiling. Who cares what he is dressed like?
Does this give someone the right to shoot him for no reason. You can find a black kid that has that kind of look just about anywhere. I personally don’t care what photos of him they use since it is irrelevant to the point at hand.
And, to be honest, those pics don’t look too much like him at all.
Love Criminal Minds. I remember that line. It's amazing the odd tidbits you can pick up from crime/cop/forensic shows.
They tried this same racist crap with Joe Horn in 2007. It didn’t work then and it won’t work this time either. However this time, we have a president that wants a race war to fire up his base.
Black Panthers get their a$$es handed to them:
It’s just a statement of fact; Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. It doesn’t imply guilt.
Okay. I see why maybe Zimmerman was nervous.
A name of color? what color is trayvon? Never heard of it.
No one thinks it’s ok to kill a kid just because of how he looks.
It is ok to kill a kid if he is sitting on your chest beating the hell out of you...
Has zero to do with what he looks like though.
Kiss My Royal Irish A$$
Hello newbie. Color me suspicious. Pun intended.
The death of anyone due to violence, especially a 17 year old young man, is morally appalling
This assumes this was an innocent young man. There are MANY teenagers across this country who are up to no good. It is not a tragedy when ANYONE is killed. Sometimes it is necessary to protect the innocent.
A friend got it off his FaceBook page.
You’re a noob and a troll. “Racial profiling”? What kind of garbage is that? Martin was on top of Zimmerman beating him. You think Zimmerman should have just sacrificed himself?
And since the leftist media is showing only photos of Martin was he was several years younger, I think it’s in the interest of truth that photos of how he looked very recently to make it into the public eye.
Everyone is a person of color, unless they’re transparent...
you still dont get it. not every picture of every victim or perp in any situation is going to be one taken within the last few months or go.
maybe, just maybe they use those pictures to emphasize the point that he was still a child, not a grown man.
and again, those pictures are irrelevant to the investigation at hand. maybe photos of zimmerman with a bloody nose after the fight would be more appropriate.
To the poster who said you have the right to kill a person sitting on you beating you up: If that really was what happened, its a fight that Zimmerman instigated and started. And any sane person would retreat once they saw a gun, despite your assertion that he just kept pummeling away.
Also, lets look at the logistics of a struggle. Assume they were wrestling around. How was he able to get a clean shot at the guy’s chest while being pummelled? Instinct dictates that you throw your arms up to block the blows. If anything, Zimmerman probably showed the gun, told the kid to get down, mounted him, and shot him. The bloody nose and stains can be attributed to Zimmerman possibly pulling the guy to the ground and both of them falling.
Yeah, your racist pun didn’t fly over my head either.
Its nice that you try to use the possible race of a poster to discredit their arguments. Really nice.
“The same tape shows Zimmerman’s aggressive actions of following both in car and on foot.”
...as part of a Neighborhood Watch program. Your words are loaded and prejudicial.
“One was unarmed and avoided contact - one pursued with a gun.”
No. One initially avoided contact and ran like a criminal. The NWatch person pursued, waiting for police. Then what we know is that Zimmerman was getting the living crap beat out of him, before he shot the guy, amid screams for help.
Btw, the gun was legal and he carried a permit, something most FReepers advocate.
“If anything, Zimmerman probably showed the gun, told the kid to get down, mounted him, and shot him.”
LOL, that speculation isn’t supported by the facts known, and the opposite IS supported by audio from witnesses.
Ran like a criminal????
Your slip is showing FRiend.
Exactly what should a teenager do when he is being followed by a stranger in a truck?
What would you tell your kids to do if they are being followed by a stranger in a truck? Go chat him up?
The kid did exactly what any responsible adult would teach him to do....get away from the stranger following you in a vehicle.
It speaks volumes that you see that as criminal behavior.
Oh, thank you for confirming that Zimmerman pursued him.
And in the sentence after that, I explained what could have led to the bruises Zimmerman received. None of the eyewitnesses place the kid on him throwing punches down. The eyewitness accounts based on the calls show Zimmerman on the black guy, who is face down.
There is nothing to suggest that Zimmerman announced he was part of a Neighborhood Watch program. The tapes alone suggest that he was already in an aggressive, frustrated state of mind by the time he exited the car.
Picture this: It is 6:30 pm, some guy, not wearing a cop uniform or badge, just starts tailing you in a car, you have no idea who this person is and what they’re up to. Could be a kidnapper or a gangster or drug pusher for all you know. You’re 17, so not much rational thought going on.
Out of fear, you start speeding up. According to Trayvon’s girlfriend, he initially did not run, he just walked fast. By the time Zimmerman got to him, he was only 70 or so yards from his father’s house.
How is moving to escape some unknown danger running like a criminal? Oh, I guess because the person running is black? Right? smh
Everything you write is a lie, assumption, speculation or sheer nonsense.
You are a troll and why you haven’t been banned yet I have no idea.
When a noob goes around slinging accusations of “Racist” at longtime freepers and then takes the side of the likes of Al Sharpton and 0bastard, it rings a few alarm bells.
Your pathetic posting history is clear.
Wow, where did you get that? Where are these pictures on the national and local Florida media?!!
Now you are really off the wall. Time to hang it up, Sherlock. This is real life, not Murder she Wrote.
“And in the sentence after that, I explained what could have led to the bruises Zimmerman received. None of the eyewitnesses place the kid on him throwing punches down. The eyewitness accounts based on the calls show Zimmerman on the black guy, who is face down.”
You are either illiterate or delusional. Check out FR articles now breaking stating that witness states Martin attacked Zimmerman.
Troll Bait...I feel Kittie lightning in the air.
That's why they used to call them "equalizers."
You and the other zealots here really should try to hold your water until you get some facts instead of wild-eyed speculations. Not everyone is cut out to be Dick Tracy.
You’re a liar.
I am going to take my own advice and not comment further on this issue until the investigation is complete. I have no idea what actually occurred but I do know that I can't trust the media to accurately report on the incident. I don't want to be one of Obama's useful idiots.
If the sheer fantasy contained in this post could be extracted, refined and turned into natural gas, the United States would be energy independent overnight. Eternally.
Go back to DU, the CBC or whichever network sent you and tell them you failed.
You’ll be surprised to know, since I can tell that you have not read my posts, that I am not a “zealot.” My only firm stance has been that Zimmerman should never have gotten out of his truck. I have not proclaimed him guilty or innocent. And I have specifically avoided speculation, because we don’t have all of the facts.
You are typical of the shoot-your-mouth-off-without-reading variety of commenter here at FR. I ignore the willfully ignorant, including you.
Getting ambushed is instigation?
So if someone blind tackles you without warning, and starts to wail on your face, it's your fault?
You have some warped logic.
