About 2,000 march in Seattle to protest Florida teen's killing
Seattle Times ^ | 3/25/12 | Steve Miletich

Posted on 03/27/2012 7:34:10 AM PDT by Baynative

"I AM TRAYVON MARTIN," read one sign in the crowd, ~~~

Many wore hooded sweatshirts — commonly called hoodies — because that is what Martin was wearing when he died. And some held bags of Skittles candy and cans of iced tea because that was what the unarmed African-American youth was carrying when he was confronted by the watch leader, George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old son of a white father and Hispanic mother.

Among those who attended was 83-year-old Justus L. Singleton, of Bellevue, who said he wasn't sure he would complete the march but felt compelled to try.

"I'll go as far as I can," said Singleton, who carried a sign reading, "We are ALL Trayvon Martin."

"I don't want to see this kind of injustice continuing," he said. "We've had enough of it. I emphasize we."

You can always tell you have reached ridiculousness when the Seattle liberals jump in.

The irony is that they are demanding justice and know nothing of the facts. For the purpose of helping to expand the racial divide, they are labeling Zimmerman white even though his mother is latino. If he were killed he would be hispanic.

yea they can’;t understand the laws we have here in FL plus they are so stupid that they cannot see they are being used by the left so they don’t see high gas prices etc.

This is how stupid they are.

They go from attacking FOX to that is not him on the updated photo to Zimmerman knocked himself out.

For crying out loud, this wasn’t a tragedy and had nothing to do with race. How this becomes a national saga and a ‘cause’ are beyond reason. What injustice?

“In the meantime, the entire “Trayvon as victim” narrative is falling apart.”

That does not, and will not, matter. All the details of the Rodney King arrest were known and were available, but the Official Reality was about a hapless motorist brutalized by vicious racist cops, and they showed an endless loop of 12 seconds of King being hit.

Official Reality says that Treyvon is an innocent victim, backed up by a four year old picture of a cute little kid. The mob will run with Official Reality.

Stupid a-holes. I am sooo sick of this Trayvon Martin crap I could scream.

I'm sorry it happened, but the day people start marching about the young couple who were brutally murdered in Knoxville, or the Mississippi State Univ student gunned down over the weekend, then I might have an ounce of sympathy for this case.

If Zimmerman gets off, even if it’s a clear-cut case of self-defense, there are going to be riots.

I believe there are a lot of powerful people who are going to do whatever they can to destroy this guy regardless of innocence or guilt.

Ya that gets me too.

The whole narrative of this story, that some unlucky black kid just minding his own business being shot by a racist with a gun, is unraveling as more facts come out.

But, the facts don’t matter to people do they?

The narrative is out there, that America is violent, bigoted, racist, and that racists clinging to their guns are shooting innocent black kids in the streets. Any facts which contradict the narrative are to be ignored, apparently.

This whole “Trayvon” thing has gotten absolutely insane. And I’m sure, if Zimmerman had not turned out to be Hispanic, it would be even worse.

Yet blacks and the media don’t give a !#$% about that elderly couple who were attacked, the wife raped and murdered. Or the many other nonblacks who are attacked, raped, robbed, shot, killed by blacks all the time, far more numerous. Or what about all the blacks killed by other blacks? There are several every weekend in Chicago alone! I guess only blacks killed by nonblacks merit outrage.

And I find myself feeling sorry for Zimmerman. All of the facts aren’t in yet, but the fact that this could happen to someone in the United States of America, where people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, is appalling.

It’s long past time to start fighting back, screaming long and loud. Yes, they’ll call us racists and Nazis. But so what? We’ve been groveling for decades, and they call us that, anyway.

Enough!!

Maybe they should also start bashing the heads of some Latinos, because that is what Martin was doing when he died.

No doubt. But, they are not out to destroy the person. He’s just a symbol. In the fight to further their agenda then Zimmerman may be destroyed. But to them Zimmerman the person really doesn’t matter.

In the end guilt or innocence doesn’t matter. It’s one of those “seriousness of the charges” type things. Sick.

That's the beauty part. It's a slow motion train wreck.

The leftists and racists can't stop lionizing and mourning Trayvon, and the facts can't stop convicting him.

how many blacks died this past weekend by blacks?
How many whites and other races died by blacks in the last week?

Why is this wanna be gangster special a month later?

Ah yes because we have high gas prices the country is a mess and this is a way to stoke up the black community and to join the occupy protesters this summer.

This is B/S and every MSM outlet which is showing this thug as a cute 12 year kid on a skiing trip should be e-mailed and told to update that photo to what he looked like at the time and also why cover this when so many others are dying.

If this country ever gets back on track then we need to take control of the local channels and put the truth back lout there instead of this crap which many have to put up with by their local MSM

The Skittles and iced tea seems to be a rallying cry...does anyone know where the original report was that said he had Skittles.

I know its trivial...but if that part proves to be made up, it speaks volumes about the entire story.

I brought up the incident of the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome, on an earlier thread.

It is a good example of how the media plays the race card for what I think is the purpose of expanding the racial gap in order to push liberal agendas. In the case of the Knoxville murders, the young white couple was not shot during a scuffle. They were kidnapped, raped and brutally tortured before being burned and dismembered.

As is typical of the liberal left most sites including Wikipedia have scrubbed the pictures of the murderers. So, I like to include them when I mention this story.

As far as I am concerned justice was done in the shooting of Tryvon Martin. He was a thug gansta wannabe who brought a fist to a gun fight. He was acting criminal, dressing criminal and his desire for violence is what did him in.

If you don’t want to be treated like a criminal thug then don’t dress and act like one.

And when you start throwing punches you better be man enough to take what the other guy can dish out too.

Sad to say, but once you get a Mob like this worked up by the hustlers the only thing that seems to placate them is blood of innocent bystanders who get in their way....

Yeah I know. I was often their target for not feeling sorry for poor little Tryvon. I was called everything but a white man. LOL

It sickened me to know that so many FReepers would swallow the MSM koolaid and spew it back to others as if it were the known facts. When I said we should wait to find out what the truth is I was treated like I was insane.

I guess I’m not looking so insane now.

Can't stand that moron. He should have been sealed in Capone's empty vault. That said, his hoodie comment was a broken clock moment for him. He said Martin "looked the part", and we now know he liked to ACT the part too. Little wonder he caught Zimmerman's eye that night.

I work in Stockton California. The murder rate (mostly gang related) seems astronomical. Just last Saturday an Ice Cream truck driver was shot and robbed and is in critical condition. Last night an 18 year old was shot in the head in an outlying town. There were 4 murders in 3 days a couple weeks ago. But everyone here is worried about a case in Florida. What am I missing?
