ORLANDO - A witness we haven't heard from before paints a much different picture than we've seen so far of what happened the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.
The night of that shooting, police say there was a witness who saw it all.
(Excerpt) Read more at myfoxtampabay.com ...
I think he pics are fake, and there is no reason for us to take the bait.
What happened had nothing to do with race or hoodies.
Although I have always believed if you dress like a punk people will perceive you as a punk.
That’s not racism.
Its a circus
anyway, this was an over zealous man with a gun and a young man who doesn't live in the area with a hood over his face....bad situation and both should have known better...
It may turn out you're right after more facts come in, but for right now I don't see how that can be supported. The guy's neighborhood is falling apart around him, several burglaries, thefts, and a shooting in the months preceding this incident.
Some may perceive him to simply be fed up and trying to deter further deterioration and it went bad.
From what I’ve read of Martin’s gf’s report of what she overheard on the phone...
Martin asked Zimmerman why he was following him,
then Zimmerman asked Martin what he was doing here.
This was followed by sounds indicating a scuffle had begun.
“The girl said Trayvon must have been pushed because his headset fell off and the phone call ended.”
We could speculate on which fellow’s disposition might have led him to initiate a conflict at that point.
I wondered why he would have pulled his gun on an unarmed kid.
Now this sheds new light on the picture.
Do you really think it would be good for Zero to be POTUS over pre-election riots and violence in the streets ?
I would think lawlessness would wake the sleeping giant of apathetic voters.
AND There is NO racism!!
I think the implied racism is sick!
Stop posting recent photos! You’re messing up their whole thing they’re trying to do! Man!
From the beginning this was going the way of the Duke lacrosse case. Screw the lack of evidence, full speed ahead to lynch George Zimmerman.
Unfortunately this has gone too far to quell the idiotic masses but should the evidence pan out and CONTINUE to support Zimmerman’s side of the story I hope the grand jury decides to no bill this.
That was my conclusion also, after reading the article, and viewing the video, such as it is.
The key question from a legal point of view is, who initiated the violence? The title seems to promise an answer to that question, but the article fails to deliver. All it says is that Zimmerman was getting pounded, there was a bang, and Martin was dead. But we already knew that.
If a jury finds that Zimmerman initiated the violence, he's toast. On the other hand, if they exchanged insults, and Zimmerman was retreating back to his truck, and Martin pursued him and attacked him, then it's a good shoot. The article does not provide enough information to choose between those two accounts.
If Zimmerman had followed police advice, this never would have happened. So, at the macro level, Zimmerman is still the responsible party. You have an absolute right to go buy Skittles and bring them back to watch the game without being stalked by the neighborhood nazi.
The bottom line is this has nothing to with race.
North Miami Dade is 200+ miles from Sanford, Fl. So he got suspended from high school and then travelled up to Sanford, Fl. ?
You have no justification whatsoever for calling him that. It is irresponsible.
The way I see it is that Trayvon is dead, Zimmerman will get manslaughter and I get blamed.
Hardly seems win win.
They never accept facts. They believe in fairy dust and hope-n-change.
I think he thinks it would be better to divide the nation based on race and have riots as we enter the election season.
I understand they are from his scrubbed facebook page, but I could be wrong.
Nonetheless, the pics look like him, same chin, looks like his dad and all.
I got to ask myself why do they keep running pictures of a child...I mean a child for Christ’s sake.
Perhaps because recent photos of him reveal him to be a thug.
Right on girl.. as you stated.
I don’t think I’m going to be listening to him anymore.
I turned off his show in utter disgust today as well as yesterday.
Glenn Beck is about to get the same, altough he didn’t go quite as far as Hannity, but came close.
You have that right.
His father apparently took him there to get him away from a “bad crowd”. That’s where the father’s girlfriend lived, as well. Obviously, the reason the kid got suspended is a big deal- otherwise the father wouldn’t be trying to gloss over it and hide it. It sounds like a good kid getting in with a bad crowd. And I’m guessing the kid was guilty of several infractions over time, before he was suspended. The school and the father are gonna do their best to cover up whatever problems the kid was having.
You owe me a keyboard.
Not that this will matter to anyone.... I just hope the Grand Jury and others recognize it.
Irresponsible? No justification whatsoever? GFU!
I just visualized myself in Martin's place. And that's how I would have viewed Zimmerman. Why is this weirdo menacing me? What does he want?
This didn't have to happen.
We shouldn't repeal the 2nd. But neither should we tolerate neighborhood nazis!
A singularly infelicitous turn of phrase.
I genuine quandary.
I think they usually use their first names because they are more unique than their last names.
Maybe someone should start posting pictures of Zimmerman when he was 12 to equal things out.
“I see Rodney King style riots across this country VERY soon.”
If that happened Gingrich would beat Obama in Illinois; as the election nears, it doesn’t bode well for Obama to have things like “black unrest” in the news. There are not enough blacks (and at that point no sympathetic whites) to re-elect him; angry blacks make white libs vote “fascist”.
We don’t need no stinking facts.
Zimmerman is obviously a racist like all white folk.
Oh,that’s tight, he’s hispanic.
Wellll, with a name like that I bet he’s a relative of Bob Dylan.
Was told by another FRper that this took place in what is called a “gated community” and was told by his late father that when you visit anyone in such a community to have respect for the security guards.
“If Zimmerman had followed police advice, this never would have happened. So, at the macro level, Zimmerman is still the responsible party.”
You’re exactly right. People who are committed to bettering their neighborhood in a Watch Program are the perps.
“You have an absolute right to go buy Skittles and bring them back to watch the game without being stalked by the neighborhood nazi.”
Awww, what is the Nazi rule? Do you have a right to case a neighborhood and beat the hell out of the Watch. You assume skittles, I assume cracked out thief.
So in other words, Mr. Zimmerman was a security guard?
Why do the words, “TAWANA BRAWLEY” keep coming to mind?
Can you give a source for those lower photos w Trayvon dressed up hoodie-thug style with that thug style smirk pose?
“It wasnt a crime he committed, but he was in an unauthorized area [on school property], Martin said, declining to offer more details.”
LOL, because they don’t report students for crime unless it is a severe assualt. This kid is likely a thief based on that evidence and he probable casing of the neighborhood.
Problem is he didn’t like getting interrupted and decided to attack a guy that has a legal permit to carry a gun. If he would have just hit the guy and left, he’d be back thieving again. Unfortunate, for him.
Unfortunate for Zimmerman, he will get caught up in the Democrat Machine Whirlpool of activating their base for the elections.
Hey, maybe we should shut this witness up, since we all know Zimmerman is GUILTY.
It's also interesting to note that the MSM has not obtained any photos of Zimmerman that would have been taken at the police station the night he was booked.......They of course would add credence to the fact that Zimmerman was indeed attacked by the kid.
Neither “side” (for lack of a better word) is doing anyone any good. We need facts. The title, “Witness: Martin attacked Zimmerman” without offering anything to back up that statement is just as bad Rev Al whoring it.
