Zimmerman Trial: How to Make it Easy for People to Say, ‘You’re an Innocent Child’ When in Reality…
Townhall.com ^ | July 14, 2013 | Doug Giles

Posted on 07/14/2013 7:38:19 AM PDT by Kaslin

If you’re in your late teens and you get shot after assaulting a neighborhood-watch supervisor, and you want someone else to get blamed for your behavior, here are thirteen tips to make you look like an “innocent child” that loves Skittles, doing math and riding horses versus a gangbanger-in-waiting.

1. Don’t have pictures on social media, or on your cell phone, of you holding guns like a gangsta. If you do take pictures with firearms, make certain the weapon is held properly, away from the camera, with your finger off the trigger and it does not give off the I'm-a-criminal-in-training vibe. Just a thought.

2. Don't have multiple pictures of you inhaling weed floating around on either social media or in your cell phone where the police can retrieve them and use them against you. This, too, hampers the "innocent child" motif.

Treyvon was not an innocent child. He was a 17 year old, 6'2", 170 lb young, healthy man who was angry at the world, and at "crackers," particularly.

He was strong, aggressive, and capable of doing harm. And he was harming, and mercilessly beating Zimmerman that night.

Nothing these people can say will change that. His own facebook and tweets make it clear...as does his record...as does the evidence in the case.

Zimmerman found not guilty

My own feeling is this. I have followed the trial closely...each day. The Jury clearly looked at the evidence, which was overwhelming for the defense and Zimmerman.

Zimmerman's nose was broken and his face was bruised and bloodied after the confrontation. He had cuts and bruises on the back of his head. He had grass stains on the back of his shirt and pants. Treyvon had no injuries from the fight, except the gunshot wound. There were scrapes on his knuckles. And he had grass stains on his knees. All of this was supported by the forensic evidence and was not challenged.

It is clear who was delivering a beating, and who was receiving it. An eye witness indicated Treyvon was on top of Zimmerman and hitting him. Clearly, the one who was screaming histerically, and terrified for help, was the one being beaten, not the one on top doing the beating.

In almost all cases, the prosecution witnesses, under cross examination, gave testimony that ended up supporting Zimmerman's story.

It is tragic that things happened like they did. But neither person had broken any laws, or committed any crime, and could have walked away from this up until the time one of them decided to sucker punch the other in the face, break his nose and knock him down. Even then Treyvon could have walked away and had very little long term personal consequence. But when he began beating Zimmerman on the ground as he did, he took a path that led to his death. Zimmerman finally shot, and the forensic evidence showed that Treyvon was shot at close range, with the bullet traveling upward through his body (and his heart) while Zimmerman was on the ground.

There simply was not evidence of any hate crimes. There was simply no evidence of murder or negligence. The jury decided that Zimmerman was defending himself.

We know now that Zimmerman, an Hispanic male, mentored young black kids in his spare time. No racist there at all.

No, it is tragic that a 17 year old young man was killed. He was not a "little" kid. He was 6' 2" tall, 170 lbs, and was quite muscular and fit as a high school football player. Zimmerman was 5'9", also weighed around 170 lbs, but was not in good shape and over weight. And Treyvon was not angelic...far from it. His facebook page and tweets make that clear enough, as does his own record...all of which the jury could not hear...and in the end, did not need to.

Would Zimmerman have died that night? We will never know. But he clearly thought he was in great danger, and he was definitely being beat up. So he finally pulled his gun and shot in self defense.

I pray the country can move on from this. This case was trumped up by politicians, the Media, and those seeking a racial cause. The local police had already pretty much determined what this jury found and that is why Zimmerman was released after being taken to the police station that night. These types of things happen fairly often in this nation of 350 million.

For example, shortly before this event, a black man, who was being stalked by 4-5 white thugs, was at home one night when these thugs came to his house and began calling him names, and throwing rocks at his home from his drive way. He was safe in his home. It was secure and he was armed. He did not have to go out. But they were on his property and he decided to go out and confront them. There was an argument. One of the young men, about 19 years old, charged the man yelling that he was going to hurt him. The man shot...and the 19 year old died.

That man was not tried. He was not arrested for murder or manslaughter. Everyone knew these kids were on his property and up to no good. He could have stayed inside, but he decided to confront the evil on his property and when attacked, he defended himself. I have no problem with it...and believe more Americans should send such messages to criminals when they are threatened. 911 takes on average 9 minutes for anyone to get there. Usually by that time, it is over.

That above case happened in Florida by the way...and there was no outcry, no demands to punish that man for killing the much younger man. It was clearly self defense...as was this case with Zimmerman.

It bemuses me that George Zimmerman’s detractors keep referring to Trayvon Martin as a “child.” He was 17—old enough to join the Armed Forces.

When I was seventeen, I graduated from high school and was accepted into college. In those days, no one referred to 17-year-olds as children.

If Mr. Skittles had simply kept his hands to himself, he would be alive today. THAT is the message blacks should telling their kids but they aren’t, as they never take responsibility.

LIFE “101”

This fiasco of a trial is another instance demonstrating that a lot of people hate Whites because they are White, some of these people are Black and some are White.
The White, “White haters” are in control of the most of the News Media, to a large extent they operate in Northeastern Quarter of the United States.

Thugvon was exactly that. For the hucksters, including the pols, and pandering media to try to present him as some innocent “child” was total BS. He was an accident waiting to happen, and it did. And if it didn’t then, it would have later. Mr Tough Guy thought he’d take care of the “crazy ass cracker” He got real”justice” instead

There’s a reason why self-defense is in the law. This was a good example. There was never “probable cause” to accuse GZ, there was never “evidence” to show guilt, especially on the bogus murder-2 charge, then the conniving to throw in manslaughter as a last, desperate attempt to con jurors they condescendingly thought were gullible. There was far more than just “reasonable doubt” here.

More division, more phony “outrage” and all brought on by a media that sees everything as a one-way street and a phony ass “President” and his “unity” BS. Now we see all the feigned “outrage” from the same mindset that cheered the Simpson verdict. That same “protesters” that idolized a total loser like King Rodney. We see where that went, didn’t we? What a circus.

Exactly. Can’t help wondering if 17 year-old rapist would similarly be described as a “child”.

A 4 year old is a child, so is a 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 year old, but a 17 year old is not a child.

Also a 10 year old and up should know right from wrong. Perhaps even a 7 or 8 year old.

If Mr. Skittles had not been suspended from school, for ten days, he would have been where he belonged......in Miami.. Instead, he was roaming around a strange neighborhood, no parental control, with nothing but time, a cellphone, and looking for trouble.

The following is the best explanation I have seen. I can't take credit for it, but it is logical:

"Here is the origin of the matter.. A neighborhood watchman is told that some African American males wearing hoodies are burglarizing and robbing in the neighborhood, so he sees a young man that fits the description . Yes he is tired of the criminals getting away with crimes in his neighborhood. So, he follows him ... but NO murderer planning to kill someone out of malice is going to call 911 before they kill them (common sense) they are just going to shoot them. The dispatcher tells him to stand down, He says ok and he does. How do I know because the fight was at the same place he originally calls from because of where the watchman's car was parked in proximity to the scene. 4 mins lapse between the last call of the victim and the fight mind you he is walking and talking on the phone for 4 mins away from the watchman. So in 4 mins the victim had plenty of time to walk, run, jog to a safe place until the scene was clear for him to go home ... So how does the victim get back to the where the watchman was.. because he turns around to find out who this person or cracker (his words) is that WAS (key word was) following him. He now approaches the watchman and they get in a fight, the watchman is clearly losing and in fear of his life at that point it does become self defense. That is why the jurors came to the verdict."

Trayvon is a direct result of the New Black Panthers getting away with intimidation at a Philadelphia polling station, because, being intimidating while black is not a crime.

In those days, no one referred to 17-year-olds as children.
Today, 26 year olds are referred to as children so they can be included on mommy and daddy's health insurance.

If Trayvon Martin had simply been whacked by a stray bullet fired by some gang banger in a drive by, we wouldn’t even know his name. It’s not about justice or rights; it’s all about racial identity politics.

I was pretty shocked when I (accidentally) saw a picture of the young man’s body. Even though I felt like Zimmerman had the right to defend himself all along, I was still shocked to see how big Mr. Martin was.

I realized that even though I “knew” that the media was lying about him being a child, a part of me and still started to form the mental images that the liberal media painted.

So in a way, when I see elements of the population reacting the way they are, I now think, “well, it’s no wonder they think that way. They have been conditioned by propaganda to believe that a little 14 year old child was gunned down for no reason.”

“What child abuse?”

The only child abusers were Trayvon’s parents. They conceived the child and then abdicated their responsibility to raise him properly.

Sabrina Fulton gave him up as a young child. As a teen the father Tracy gave him back to the mother when he (Tracy) moved out on his second wife.

Trayvon had been suspended from school for possessing drugs and burglary tools. It was his third suspension of the year. That night, instead of being at home under the supervision of a parent, he was running around the neighborhood and chatting on his cell phone. Father Tracy was out running around with his new live in squeeze (fiancé). This alleged fiancé has been noticeably absent from the trial where the negligent mother and father are shown together grieving as a “family”.

This is another case of two people conceiving a child and then abdicating the responsibility for parenting. These “parents” have spent more time in the past year trying to realize money and fame from the death of their son than they did raising him. Trayvon was killed because his parents failed in their job and didn’t have the suspended teen home that night under their supervision. That is real child abuse yet charges will never be brought.
