First Trayvon Martin- George Zimmerman related hate crime reported in Chicago (Thanks Al!)
The Washington Times' Tea Party Report ^ | April 21, 2012 | Laura Kelly and William J. Kelly

Posted on 04/22/2012 3:28:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

CHICAGO, April 22, 2012 – The first Trayvon Martin-related hate crime has just been reported. Is the politically heated rhetoric surrounding the Sanford, Florida case to blame?

For weeks, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and other prominent political figures have been ratcheting up the rhetoric in the case of Trayvon Martin. Martin is the 17-year-old black teenager who was shot by volunteer neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is of white and Peruvian descent.

Critics have charged that Jackson and Sharpton have been using the Trayvon Martin case to fan the flames of U.S. racial discord and have intentionally focused their venom on the racial divisions between the white and black communities – Zimmerman’s mixed racial heritage notwithstanding.

Last month, Jackson launched what he termed the “Trayvon Martin-voter registration movement” with a goal of registering 1 million voters in Florida.

The founder of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition also expressed anger after bond was set Friday at $150,000 for Zimmerman’s release.

“We are disappointed that the bond was set so low,” said Jackson. “Tomorrow Mr. Zimmerman’s freedom will be restored. This decision cheapens black life.”

But now there is a real-life casualty of the heated - some would say politically-motivated - rhetoric: a 19-year-old white hate crime victim from Chicago....

other prominent political figures = Obama "if I had a son, he'd looked like Trayvon" and other Democrats

One of the things I really resent about the media handling of this is they never point out that in this land’o’racists it was primarily white voters who elected a black president.

Sweet.

I just recently put a picatinny mount on my Remington 870 barrel and added a blinding flashlight with a red dot laser. That and other stuff.

My concern is with a Cali earthquake or terrorist attack that WILL cause the "gimmes" to head out of their urban area after nothing left to ransack. We have a Neighborhood Watch and are talking about emergency and protective protocol.

Zimmerman will go free. Murder2 will not hold up. The guy was doing good for his neighbors and defended himself. Too bad the punk was under age. If not for that, it would have been just a local police blotter entry in a local newspaper.

Looks like it is up to us and other responsible websites to make sure these stories get covered. We need to let the media know that it is time for them to step up to the plate.

What is the old saying?

I am mad as hell and won't take it anymore"

What make and model is that? Can’t read the writing but I’d rather not guess as want one. I’m primarily a Glock and 1911 guy but that looks like it would fill a niche.

You must have misunderstood my reply or I wasn't clear. I knew what I was looking at. Just thought I'd share something about my 870 shotgun in return. If you want specifics about the mount and flashlight/laser combo, FReepmail me. BTW, can you say Sig Sauer P226?

What is 2nd Division? Is that Army or Marine? Just curious.

First of all...Al don't give a shiite!

Second, it was just a White boy...and he's the enemy!

Third, a thug in Chicago doesn't really need an excuse to rob and thump a Whitey.

There was a time when we realized that America was at war with Islam because Islam declared said war. Now we realize that a big chunk of the Black community is also at war with America (it too has declared such war).

Let me state that there are many innocent Muslims and Blacks who are not part of this declaration of war. But for their own sake...they need to make their position known and stand up for America and the freedom it represents!

For this division...we can thank Obama!

Ummm, looking at black crime statistics I'd say the black community owns 'cheapening' black life...

Interesting question. It seems obvious to me that activists like Jackson and Sharpton are deliberately inciting racial violence.

However, the person filing the suit would have to have “standing”, i.e., he would have to demonstrate that he was personally harmed by the specific act of criminal violence (e.g., the victim or the victim’s parent.)

Furthermore, the prosecution would have to prove to the court’s satisfaction that it was specifically Jackson’s remarks that caused the perpetrator to bring harm to the plaintiff. In the case of the beating in Chicago, the only evidence of racial motivation was the perpetrator’s “white boy” remark.

Just the opinion of some bloke. I’m not a lawyer.

Always a great video clip.

I think it is interesting that Rick Santelli and the birth of the Tea Party was a real live "I mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" event.

HiPoint Model C9 9mm. They also produce carbines in a range of the most popular calibers including: 380 ACP, 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP.

Very inespensive, as they utilize nearby automotive subcontactors for some of the manufacturing process. Lifetime, transferable warranty.

The decision that Zimmerman isn’t a flight risk, so doesn’t need a heavy bail? If the judge had been more politic, he would have set bail at a million, but the fine print would say that it was “partially secured,” i.e., that he only has to put down 150,000, and if he fled justice he’d then forfeit that amount and also owe another 850,000. Dumb judge. Don’t feed the hustlers.

2DV - I think you use that red thingy with the lock on the end to strangle them when you run out of Ammo. LOL

I have the same little pistol as part of my “collection”.
They get a bad rap but so far mine is holding up very well.
Don't shoot it much nowadays, but never had a stove pipe like some of my Glock owning buddies have.

I wanted to get the .40 and .45 that they make, but I live in CA and they aren't on the “approved” list.

I called Hi Point to see when they would be available here and they told me that they gave up on CA, so we can only get the .380 and the 9mm standard models here. The State “Testing” isn't worth the time and expense for them since they aren't a big player. Commie California sucks...

-- However, the person filing the suit would have to have "standing", i.e., he would have to demonstrate that he was personally harmed by the specific act of criminal violence (e.g., the victim or the victim's parent.) --

Inciting violence is a criminal act, charged by the state if it chooses to.

Not saying Sharpton or Jackson meet the criteria for the crime, but if they do, standing isn't the problem. The legal hurdle is 1st amendment, and that the person has to have expressly "urged ten or more persons to engage in tumultuous and violent conduct of a kind likely to create public alarm." (cribbing from NYS Penal Law 240.08, because that came up near the top of the web search results). In New York, the crime is a misdemeanor.

I agree with your comments about the difficulties of mounting a civil case.
