Trayvon Martinís Father Viciously Attacks Zimmerman Supporter In Court
The Inquisitr ^ | June 25, 2013

Posted on 06/26/2013 9:12:43 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Trayvon Martin’s father Tracy has reportedly “attacked” a supporter of George Zimmerman, mouthing an expletive (“motherf***er”) during pre-trial proceedings outside the courtroom during an alleged incident relayed by Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara as he argued that Martin and Trayvon’s mother should be barred from the courtroom if Zimmerman’s parents were.

As George Zimmerman’s trial wears on, the incident in which Tracy Martin allegedly attacked a Zimmerman reporter seems, like many, to skip over what feels to be the actual lurking headline within the story — something more like:

“Trayvon Martin’s Dad Tracy Somehow Miraculously Not Punching Everyone In The Courtroom In The Face, Continuously, As Zimmerman Trial Progresses.”

Debate aside, the Trayvon Martin case is one for which it’s hard to imagine a worse parental nightmare. People without children bristle at the notion that parenthood imbues one with any special ability to feel compassion, empathy, or projected sadness, and it’s true that all people have likely experienced fierce and vulnerable love like the love a parent feels for a child.

But the eternal curse of a parent is the one Trayvon’s mom and dad have to know so intimately — that fear that as they step out into the world, they will be slow to develop the ability to detect and evade the ill-intentioned. That if this horrible happenstance occurs, they will come to harm much like Martin did and we will be unable to intervene and protect them.

So too in life it feels like nothing is so unfair as compounded pain, and when Martin died at the hands of Zimmerman that night in 2012, the series of insults added to the Martin and Fulton families’ injury had yet to begin....

If a mixed-race Hispanic man uses a bad word, it’s evidence in a murder trial.

Really? On what grounds are they barred? In April I attended an appeal hearing in Connecticut in which Michael Skakel is seeking a new trial.Skakel himself testified on the day I attended and half the people in the gallery were his kin.I even talked to one.I didn't realize it until afterward...if I had know beforehand I would have told her to go fornicate herself.

Typical belligerent behavior to be expected from someone who has a perpetual chip on his shoulder, combined with a society that's always giving him a free pass for bad behavior.

Supposedly Zimmerman's family is on the potential witness list while Travon's family is not. Witnesses apparently aren't allowed to hear the other witnesses testimony.

Witnesses are not allowed in the gallery and the prosecution has designated them as potential witnesses.

Thank you.

That makes sense. I wondered why they would not have been allowed in the court room.

Zimmerman’s parents are witnesses, so they cannot attend the court sessions.

I wasted my time starting to read the article until I realized that it was a pure appeal to emotion, so we could understand how angry the father is. Nice!
