Posted on 04/14/2012 9:43:55 PM PDT by TigerClaws
After the shooting I saw the twitter feed for Zimmerman's HOA. On it was posted a thanks to "neighborhood watch" who solved four burglaries that week. Retreat at Twin Lakes townhomes.
Seems to have disappeared.
It would be interesting to know the dates of those burglaries and the dates of Trayvon’s visits.......
Trayvon’s parents will probably be suing the HOA.
We know TM was caught with stolen goods at school. Were they ever linked to a specific robbery?
Zimmerman states that Martin was doing something suspicious. Looking in windows? Walking erratically checking out townhomes? We don’t know.
Of course they will. That’s all set up now for them.
If it breathes, moves or exists they will sue it. Money to be made on the death of their child.
We dont ‘know’ the items were stolen, only that they were pieces of female jewelry, that he claimed belonged to his girlfriend.
But, he did have a screwdriver along with the items, it was reported, a bit unusual.......
It is safe to assume 17 yr old unemployed hs kids routinely buys bags of jewelry at a time...
There is an interesting psychological subtext to this case.
Zimmerman cried for help from his neighbors, those people for whom he had sacrificed much of his own time to protect.
He was attacked in an area closely surrounded by numerous homes, and we know there were people in a number of those homes at the time.
No one helped him.
No one stepped outside and tried to pull Trayvon off of him.
The one person who acknowledged him, the witness John, told them to “stop” and went back to call 911.
The neighbors have a psychological bias toward it being Zimmerman as the bad guy. That way, they don’t have to feel guilty about doing nothing as a man was nearly beaten into a vegetable or to death outside their doors.
There is a parallel to the Vietnam War. Students were given deferments so that they wouldn’t have to serve, while those who couldn’t get into college or didn’t want to go to college were made to go.
As a guilt-avoidance mechanism, many of these students projected the US as the “bad guy” in the war and thereby avoided having to face feelings of guilt in that they were allowed to avoid service that others were made to do.
Remember that “Retreat View Circle” is the street where the incident occured.
Check out the crime reports:
The Kitty Genovese case was a famous seminal instance of this. Look it up.
She was murdered crying for help in a crowded neighborhood. Neighbors did nothing. “Didn’t want to get involved.” “It’s the police’s problem.”
If I lived in that neighborhood I'd be on the lookout all the time.
Some of that case is myth. It comes from a NY TImes article. The book Super Freaknomics looks into it.
“The neighbors have a psychological bias toward it being Zimmerman as the bad guy”
Abadee Abadee you’re loony tunes.
It’s all about a common fear whites have of confronting an African American who is in the act of committing a violent act in public, whether the victim is the neighborhood watch, a kid on a bike, or an elderly person.
It’s just plain cowardice, and fear of being perceived as “racist” if they touch or confront the perp.
Fear of being a victim themselves. Fear of being a witness.
Fear of a approaching a personality type who will KILL you if you look at them wrong or they think you have “dissed” them in some way.
Stay vigilant folks, these are dangerous times.
You missed the point.
It is human nature for people to rationalize circumstances in order to place their actions (or non-actions) in a better light and feel better about themselves.
Let’s consider two situations.
In scenario A, there is a nut with a gun walking around outside their homes shooting down young boys like a dog for no reason at all, or because he doesn’t like their skin color.
This is the narrative painted by the media and the race hustlers and the state attorney.
Obviously, no one should feel guilty for not going outside in response to cries of help to face down a gunman randomly or racistly gunning people down. In fact, they should move their families away from the windows to avoid possible random shots.
In scenario B, an unarmed teenager jumps on the neighborhood watch guy who asks him what he is doing in the neighborhood and starts wailing on the guy.
In this case, if someone responds to the cries for help and comes out and pulls the teen off of the neighborhood watch guy, at that point the teen probably takes off running (seeing two against one) and in any event not wanting to wait around for any cops.
And if no one helps the neighborhood watch guy even though his pathetic cries for help go on minute after minute? Maybe he suffers brain damage or even dies.
The people who cowered in their homes would feel like crap in scenario B. Just one guy willing to pull the teen off of him would have prevented brain damage or death.
In fact, what we had was scenario B EXCEPT with the neighborhood watch guy armed with a gun. So when the teen kept bashing his head and no neighbor came to help, he had to rely on self-defense.
For the neighbors, if they go along with the media’s and the state attorney’s narrative being scenario A, they don’t have to feel like cowards. No one would expect them to reasonably go out and face down a racist gunman shooting down boys in cold blood with a depraved mind.
Scenario B? They ought to feel bad for not helping.
By the way, whites are a minority in this “gated community”.
Occam’s Razor. You might outta keep yer day job!
