George Zimmerman hearing takes place on birthday of Trayvon Martin
Fox Orlando ^ | 2/5/13

Posted on 02/05/2013 6:58:23 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

Attorneys for George Zimmerman will try to get his murder trial delayed at a hearing on Tuesday, what would have been Trayvon Martin's 18th birthday.

It was nearly a year ago when the teenager was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. While the debate continues on what happened that night, Martin's parents plan to celebrate their son's birthday in South Florida.

"They wanted to have a birthday party, as opposed to memorializing February 26th. They want to celebrate Trayvon's birth," said family attorney Natalie Jackson. "It's a peace and love walk. The walk is to support and facilitate children thinking and problem solving with their minds, instead of with guns."

I’m sure Zimmerman’s attorneys intentionally got this hearing scheduled on what would have been St. Trayvon’s 18th birthday just to dance on his grave. < / sarcasm >

Yeah, well, don’t forget your AZ ice tea and cough syrup if you’re gonna do it right.

Walk for peace? How many of the little wanna be gang bangers will be able to walk more than 5 feet without holding their crotch to keep their pants up?

Is tm up for sainthood yet? Pretty sure al (not so) sharpton is the one who proclaims sainthood these days.

Still can’t believe this travesty has gotten as far as it has. If he only had a son............. Should be “If I only had a brain.”

He went down the same rabbit hole that the 30 people rescued from the Benghazi consulate office/CIA safe house, went down. Never to be heard from, again. Must be a huge rabbit hole...

“Still can’t believe this travesty has gotten as far as it has.”

It has gone this far due to the out of control Liberal Media and a total lack of opposition to their crap from our side of the aisle.

Zimmerman must be most wary about the people of FL and the kinds of jurors and voters present there. There’s plenty of heat and sunshine there, but justice is certainly not guaranteed.

Zimmerman asked for the contiuance because the prosecutor is not providing the information they are legally bound to provide.

The judge has already made the decision. She said that since they (Zimmerman) asked for the date she isn’t changing it. Sounds VERY predjudicial agains Zimmerman. Not good!.

This is all so rotten. The liberals want to make an example of a person who protects himself with a gun, and of course try to get some votes in the black community. Someone needs to do some community activisim down there about the rights of people to protect themselves against thugs who would steal their property and lives.

I hope the heat of Hell never stops for Travon Martin and I hope those prosecuting Zimmerman eventually have the same fate. I hope all of them get mugged and beaten to within an inch of their lives by some Travon Martin wannabe.

I don’t understand what the liberal press has to gain by promoting a lie in this case. Wouldn’t be just as news worthy to present the truth and make a hero out of Zimmerman, which he is by the way. He saved his community from the likes of a thief and thug in one Travon Martin who will never steal again.

If you think this case makes my blood boil, let me tell you, you got that right.

Roger that. Unfortunately my voice doesn’t carry the same weight as the radical left wing extremist demokkkrats that get ALL the press. Despite claims that the press is controlled by the right. HUH? Geez. Coulda’ fooled me.

Professional victims and their tricks... yeah, poverty pimps are charming...

How many children have been murdered - yes MURDERED - in Chicago? Where are the poverty pimps in those cases? Where's the drama and the camera crews? Where's NBC and teams that can doctor tapes? Do the Chicago dead not count? Or the Detroit dead children? And why not? Why don;t they matter?

The reason NBC and the poverty pimps are here in Orlando is there's an underlying cause involved - and that's "LIBERALS DON'T WANT CITIZENS TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT THEMSELVES'.

Liberal elites live in gated communities with armed guards. They don't NEED to protect themselves because they PAY for their protection.

Liberal elites want us scared, dependent and broken. Maybe even have a few drones kill our loved ones... They don't care about Trayvon. They care about their own power.

That's why this case gets tears, publicity and high drama. The hundreds killed in Chicago don't get a kick in the face. Well, unless they're dead little bodies can be used by the liberal media to push gun control. Then the dead children of Chicago will get some attention.

That would be a dog bites man story. The “Man Bites Dog” story that journalism wants lusts for is not “citizen defeats mugger” but “black victim of white racism.” Journalism pretends to think that black on white racism is common - but they report it as if it were unusual enough to be worthy of note - which it would be, if only they could find examples of it. The Crystal Mangum affair was a cut at that, even though the final denouement was predictable to anyone willing to see it, within days of the beginning of the brouhaha. But the journalism community - really, the journalism conspiracy - kept the pressure on for as long as they could. Then, Cooper announced officially that there had been no crime committed against Crystal Mangun. Good news, right. Well, no - it was the end of the story. No politically correct victim, no story. That is SOP.
How is journalism a conspiracy? Simple.        
"People of the same trade seldom meet together even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public or some contrivance to raise prices." - Adam Smith
Not merely journalists, but whole newspapers and broadcast journalism outlets, meet not for merriment and diversion, but to decide what the news is. Where do they meet? They have been conducting a virtual meeting continually since the foundation of the Associated Press in the middle of the Nineteenth Century.
