Skip to comments.Was Trayvon Martin Rear-Ended by Zimmerman? Z was intoxicated with own agenda and ambition

*On Monday (7/8) the defense attorneys in the George Zimmerman trial brought forth testimony from a parade of witnesses who vouched that the screams for help on the 911 tapes were those of Zimmerman and not Trayvon Martin.
Legal analysts called it a victory for the defense, claiming the testimony of Trayvons father Tracy Martin was weak and contradictory. However, the father did raise one simple question that seems to be largely overlooked why did Zimmerman leave his car in the first place to go after his son?
It would seem the prosecutions best strategy would have been to camp on the 911 call where the dispatchers clearly instructed Zimmerman not to pursue Trayvon stating We dont need you to do that. What was the timeline from that directive to the fatal shot? Zimmermans claim that he was looking for the name of the street location is weak. For someone who has lived on that complex for three years to be as diligent and concerned a watchman as he portrays and not know the location he was patrolling is incredible. Reportedly, there are only three street names throughout the entire complex.
To claim that he could not gather his thoughts through all the excitement and adrenaline flowing doesnt add up as police and other witnesses reported that they found him to be too calm and collected for someone who had just shot another human being.
So it appears the prosecution should have focused on Zimmermans neglecting to follow the instruction of law enforcement professionals thats the cut bank where the defense would erode.
The Florida Supreme Court defines negligence as follows:
Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care. Reasonable care is that degree of care which a reasonably careful person would use under like circumstances. Negligence may consist either in doing something that a reasonably careful person would not do under like circumstances or in failing to do something that a reasonably careful person would do under like circumstances. (Florida Standard Jury Instructions, 4.1).
Zimmermans case should be likened to a drunk driver who rear-ended another vehicle resulting in loss of life. Zimmerman was intoxicated with his own agenda and ambition, plain and simple. The trial should be focused on the initial impact that is how Trayvon was impacted once he realized he was being followed by someone who did not identify himself as he should have.
By the way, in identifying who in fact is screaming help on the 911 tape, Im reminded of a story I once heard where upon viewing her dead husbands body a woman thought it did not resemble him and complained to the funeral director, Thats not my husband to which the director replied How do you know
youve never seen him dead before! So I ask, how can anyone be sure of who is in fact screaming on the tape when theyve never heard what the person in desperation may sound like in the face of death?
Grasping at straws now, aren't they?
I am amazed at the lengths black libtards are going to, to make Z guilty.
HE’S INNOCENT- HE WAS ATTACKED BY A STUPID YOUNG THUG
If Z didnt have a gun he would have probably been in the hospital
And they do not care a out the 100 blacks killed week in and week out with 94 killed by other blacks
Another racist proving yet again what most Americans believe according to a recent poll: that Blacks are the most racist amongst us.
When the civilian operator asked for his location,
it generally includes two things :
a) street name
b) number on the nearest house
Are we grasping at straws yet ?
“Sir, that’s retarded.”

Yes, and didn’t realize he meant “rear ended” as a metaphor until I got well into the article. Hell, I thought he was insinuating TM was from the “down low” club.
Numbnuts never went to law school. Leaving the truck was foolish but not illegal. Had the prosecutors focused on that the judge probably would have granted the motion for acquittal. And this is not a negligence case. The burden is proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
Holder’s people don’t want the mound of lies they’ve created regarding the events to be eroded, so they play ‘re-speak’, restating the false talking points to try and blunt the truth which has come out ... like the notion that George should have followed the police directions to not follow Traytable; George turned back to ward his vehicle when the police said they didn’t need George to follow Traytable.
His agenda was to police the area and report suspicious activity. Nevermind some low ranking civilian dispatcher said he didn't need to be following the suspect. If the cops are on their way, I wish to know which way the suspect went.
That is clear? Unequivocal? Unambiguous? "We don't need you to do that" is the same as "You are not to do that"? Making that assertion is quite a stretch.
:: camp on the 911 call where the dispatchers clearly instructed Zimmerman not to pursue Trayvon ::
(1) not a 911 call
(2) not a dispatcher
(3) not a legally imposed command (”clearly instructed”)
More spin than a gyroscope!
“Too calm” aka In Shock.
I guess the author could care less about the 75 shootings w/ 12 deaths in Chicago over the holiday since it was a culture thing between Blacks.
They also ignore the fact that Zimmerman responded to the “request” that he not follow St. Thugvon with an, “OK.”
This reads like a condensed and none-too-subtle version of the same issues David Horowitz put under his byline on his own website Frontpagemag.com. He got HUNDREDS of responses ,99% of which took serious issue with him, accusing him of reverting back to his Lefty past, and being “fact-deficient”.
It has to be read to be believed, all of it delivered in tones of Our David of the Bleeding Heart,and even though he
made a couple of good points, they were only halfway made.
WRONG! VERY WRONG! A post-shooting mentality is NOT one of hysteria like we see portrayed in the media. Law & Order is not an accurate depiction of a law-abiding citizen's reaction to a shooting.
When you're in a fight for your life, everything about you changes. Your mentality changes: fight or flight. Your vision narrows. Your hearing diminishes. You don't pay attention to anything but the immediate threat. You sweat heavily, a natural defense mechanism to make you "slippery" as a victim.
Having been in this situation TWICE in my life, I can tell you that the aftermath was inexplicably peaceful. There was a sense of euphoria. The world was quiet. I didn't even hear the police screeching down the street. You stand there in bewilderment. Your body is still in that fight or flight mode. Your vision is blurred and centrally focused. Your hearing is still dull and tinny. It takes minutes if not hours to fully recover from an assault. You're not thinking straight.
Police are actually trained to deal with these situations through diversion therapies. That's a big reason why they're put on administrative leave after a shooting. It's not just for the investigation, but it's a time to allow the officer sufficient time to mentally recover.
In combat soldiers, a constant state of alertness and a constant barrage of these situations creates what we now call "Post-traumatic Stress Disorder." The body's instinct is to return to that level of calm, but if you're constantly under duress, that calm never returns. Your set point is raised. You are hyperalert. This state of being is not conducive to sanity. The body is constantly producing the stress hormone cortisol.
Zimmerman's post-shooting reaction was exactly what I expected to hear. The "stylized" version we see on TV and in movies is NOT realistic and is often what hoplophobic lefties believe to be the truth when in reality, not a single one of them has been in the fight for their life and would likely not recover either.
Another Trayvon apologist. It doesn’t matter that Z left his car. All that matters is that Trayvon initiated the confrontation and was doing his best to beat the crap out of (and possibly to severely injure) Z. If Z had been black we would have never heard.
