Police recordings made the night a self-appointed neighborhood watch captain allegedly shot and killed an unarmed 17-year-old boy outside his stepmother's home sent the boy's mother screaming from the room and prompted his father to declare, "He killed my son," according to a family representative.

The series of emergency and non-emergency calls to police depict the apparent progression of events on Feb. 26 that led to the watch captain, George Zimmerman, 28, who is white, allegedly shooting Trayvon Martin, a high-school junior who is black, as the teen made his way home with a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea.

Wow, the bias on this one is over the top. The video is full of cute pictures of Treyvon holding babies, etc. No joke!

I thought the left/Obama campaign had finally given up on this story. Still calling Zimmerman white? Really?

Maybe this abc reporter didn't get the memo to give up on this and go find another potential evil white man hates blacks story.

Wasn’t it ABC that was caught red-handed fanning the flames of racism and inventing “facts” about this case from the beginning?

So what has brought them back around to the same game? This is so over-the-top as to almost sound like it came from The Onion...

And yes - Zimmerman still called “white”... I guess if Hispanic is the “New White”...???

It’s really unfortunate he died.

zimmerman’s white?? that’ll be news to his family

meanwhile, anyone else notice the races being pointed out in this ABCnews story?

should we expect them to label the races in all news stories from now on?

or only those in which they believe they can stoke racial tensions?

There have been tons of Trayvon threads, so we all know this for what it is.

That being said, (and this being an ‘old’ report), I sympathize with the feelings that the Mother and Father had over the loss of their son. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, no matter the circumstances.

What should also be remembered, is that the Mother and Father seemed to have no problems accepting the fate of their son, for almost a month after it happened. THEN... someone ‘latched’ onto the case and passed the info on up the chain, and the MEDIA and POLITICIANS got involved, and suddenly everything changed.

The parents have been dancing on the lid of their son’s coffin ever since. I hope Trayvon can forgive them, eventually.

I just keep thinking back at the Angela Corey "press conference" referring to Trayvon's "sweet family," and I could barf.
Perhaps they did the best they could, but they raised a hood, fercryingoutloud! Both visually and actually, judged by all available information, including his facebook statements and tweets.
Any person of any race who wears a hoodie in 80 or 90-degree weather is a criminal in fact or in inclination. Why argue about that?
Even if the First Racist's son looks like that, if he had a son, that means less than nothing to me.

I object to the pejorative phrase “self appointed”. We could say the exact same about the OWS crowed or indeed about various community “organizers”. In that context, Zimmerman was just as much a community organizer as the Just-us Brothers are today.

“self appointed neighborhood watch captain . . ..” ????

Can anyone shed some light on this? Did the residents of this community self-organize a neighborhood watch program, with the knowledge of the Sanford PD? Were there other residents, organized to volunteer in like manner?
The police dispatcher didn’t seem surprised or put off by the fact that Zimmerman was out and about, observing what was happening in the neighborhood.

Do you see the evil of our news media??

“who is WHITE ... shot TM who is BLACK”

You read that and think it’s significant, when it’s evil. Not only is Zimmerman himself a minority, there is no indication he shot the guy because he’s black.

Further, this story isn’t about George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, not really.

This story is saying “Whites shoot Blacks”, even though we know statistically is a lie. This story is saying YOU white reader discriminate against and murder all YOU black readers in America.

OK people come in different colors, but we know they don’t write stories in which they say TM who was BLACK, attacked GZ who is WHITE. That is considered racism. They want to perpetuate this leftist fantasy taht whites do horrible things to blacks in this country on a regular basis due to skin color. And that is a lie.

You know that is absolutely true. The first interview with Trayvon's mother that I saw she was grieving but had no axe to grind whatsoever. Then Sharpton and Jackson walked into her life and her attitude did a 180 spin in the blink of an eye.

The parents have been buck dancing on the lid of their son’s coffin ever since.

Interesting glitch. It seems to be about 50/50 that it loads for some and not for others. I don’t know if ABC is the source of the problem here but I have noticed that websites for major media outlets are some of the worst built websites on the internets.

It was written 3 months ago. How much has changed from this story? I love this sentence though:

Trayvon Martin had no arrest record or disciplinary action for violence as a student in North Miami's Krop High School.

"no ... disciplinary action for violence" -- but disciplinary action nonetheless for other non-violent infractions on three separate occasions that this time amounted to a 10 day suspension.

The fact that school officials seized rings, jewelry, and watch in his backpack indicates that they didn't believe his story that they were gifts but believed them to have been stolen. Were they stolen from the apartment complex????

The deposition of the school officials should be interesting, especially of the bus driver that he supposedly punched out.

Who's crying over the Straits?

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Tulsa, Oklahoma just a few weeks ago?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition. Mr. Srait died from his injuries a few months ago.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.

Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?

(the autopsy states she was raped. Don’t think all of these animals didn’t all participate)

And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?

WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2117695/Brutal-home-invasion-Oklahoma-couple-ends-65-year-romance-meeting-blind-date.html

Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly couple? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner. The fascists want us to hesitate and think before pulling the trigger and eliminating one of their voters. By the time you do all that thinking, you could be dead. Screw that!

As our state supreme court said in expanding the Castle Doctrine: You have the right to defend yourself even if the transgressor is unarmed. The mere perception of imminent violence against your person is enough to shoot the bastard in the head.

This ruling was recently affirmed when an apartment owner shot two burglars between the eyeballs, and the county sheriff complimented him on the good shooting.

Leftists are still lying about George’s race. They hate whites. They demonize whites. They inspire racist mob attacks on whites then act like it’s just kids having fun. They discriminate against whites. It’s important to them that George be remade a demon white even if he is Hispanic, white and Black.

Mr. Martin had been suspended from school three times this school year. The final suspension was for ten days. Ten days? Come to think of it, I have never heard of a TEN DAY suspension from school. Kicked out of school for two full weeks of classes?
I have no idea how a borderline student is supposed to keep up with his studies, or to improve his life in any way, while staying out of any contact with school for such a long period of time. The only possible benefit, it seems to me, is to keep his bad influence away from the other students.
