WHAT SHOULD TRAYVON MARTIN HAVE DONE? [Brain scrambled rant from liberal] Link Only!

Amy hasn't watched any reasonable analysis of the trial OR she is willingly ignoring the history of St. Skittles.

Mark O'Meara gave a stunning example of St. Skittles' best option in his closing argument--a stunning 4 minute SILENCE--that represented the time George's attacker to go 100 yards to the safety of his "father's" home.

And what of Trayvon's character? His history was known to be a kid who sought out trouble....even Rachel "I don't read cursive" Jeantel says she thinks Trayvon threw the first punch....

But Amy, I guess, is incapable of apprehending these facts.

The youth should have thrown that chip on his shoulder in the trash. He should have risen above the mentally impoverished parents issued to him and strove to make something of himself.

Tray-Von should have never purchased a hoodie to wear in sub-tropical Florida and not slouched along at night looking for a confrontation.

The poor, ignorant lout didn’t realized that in Florida if you jump atop another man and try to beat the shit out of him he might just have a license to carry a firearm.

How stupid it would have been for Zimmerman to just lay there while this idiot savant beat him to death.

Now our evil regime that runs the central socialist government wants to harass Zimmerman even more and his greedy and exceedingly stupid parents want to wage a lawsuit in order to line their pockets.

The family, the schools and the media helped mold this thug who slouched through his short life wrapped in a hoodie and an anti-social attitude.

Things like this will only change when the American people get angry and change their bloated evil government and institution.

If Martin had not tried to beat Zimmerman's head into the pavement, the discussion would be irrelevant.

What should he have done? Not been a violent thug for starters.

Rachel "I don't read cursive" Jeantel

I think when this went "down" Rachel told Travon to put the "beat down" on Zimmerman.

WHAT SHOULD TRAYVON MARTIN HAVE DONE?

Gone straight to his father's house without getting face to face with the C.A.C. (creepy-ass cracker)?

Yes, should have gone straight to his father’s girlfriends house and CALLED 911 instead of being the “punk ass” that he was and got in Zimmerman’s face.

He should have done exactly what I do every time I go to the local 7-11 late at night. The day clerks know me, but the night clerks watch me like a hawk. Why, you might even say they “profile” me.

But since I’m not doing anything wrong, I just ignore them. I get what I want, I pay for it (and that’s sorta the important part) and then I leave. I don’t punch anyone. I don’t argue with anyone. And no one shoots me.

Life is pretty simple when you have an IQ greater than about 75.

Certainly......this is just some kind of concocted backstory that gives reason as to why St. Trayvon didn’t go home. Total bullshit. HE ended up stalking Zimmerman to beat him down and pull a male equivalent of “white girl bleed a lot”....

Disgusting little punk wannabe that got what he was looking for.

Looking at her eyes (Rachel”I don read cursive”), I’d say she was possibly drugged while on the stand, and CERTAINLY during her darling interview with Piers Morgan. Drugged out good.

WHAT SHOULD TRAYVON MARTIN HAVE DONE?

1. Walked straight home.

2. If Zimmerman stopped and asked him what he was doing. Either answer, ignore him, or tell him to buzz off. But keep on walking.

3. If he was really worried that Zimmerman might be a "gay rapist" as Rachel J. said either call 911 from his cell phone or when he got to the house.

Funny how all these opinion sharing idiots believe Martin had every right to break George’s nose, pin him to the ground and slam his head against the concrete just for looking at him while on the phone with police, but George Zimmerman had no right to use force while being subjected to that attack. What these people propose is that blacks have every right to attack whites for being “dissed”; whites have no right to use force when being violently assaulted by blacks.

“What should Trayvon Martin have done”?.

For starters, he should have stayed at his fathers place once he got there (His phone records states that) instead of going back in search of Zimmerman to kick his ‘cracka ass”. It cost him his life for being stupid.

This has to be a part of an organized campaign of disinformation. It's probably being passed on by either the NAACP or Benjamin Crump through Moveon.org. I am not disposed to conspiracy theories but the narrative of lies about the Zimmerman-Martin is too damn consistent.

I am seeing the "Big Lie" being repeated on news channels and in the printed press.

The biggest barfer is the comment about the guidance Trayvon™ got from his “dignified” parents. His father was a Crip who had his gang tattoo covered over with a tattoo of praying hands at some point after the shooting and before the trial.

That’s the same “dignified” father who called a Zimmerman supporter a “motherf*****” outside the courtroom.

He should have said: "Don't follow me. I'm calling the police."

Then he should have called the police and gone to the place where his father was squatting.

For the Urban Dictionary, my proposed entry:

TRAYVON (v) trey-vahn - To shoot and kill an individual at close range in self-defense while being assaulted, injured and in fear for one’s life.

Example: If he jumps me I’ll Trayvon him.

Indeed. Trayvon probably thought he’d put the beatdown on Zim, go to Rachel’s and get paid for his newly acquired street cred.

He should have ignored Zimmerman and gone on back to his dad's apartment and watched the NBA All Star game.

The fact that anyone is even asking that question says a lot, and it doesn't say anything good.

It’s a good question. The only thing Trayvon had to do is say, “I’m going to (address) where my Dad lives.” He could have even asked why (insert expletive if desired) Mr. Z needed to know. Mr. Z could then replied, “Thanks for letting me know. I’m the neighborhood watch guy, there’s been burgularies here and when we spot someone we don’t know, we take a look. Have fun at your Dad’s.” Done.

This is what happens when young black men are taught that THIS is how they 'prove' rheir manhood. Usually, it gets them killed, not by George Zimmerman, but by their own homeboys who are ALSO trying to prove their manhood. There is no walking away.

Trayvon Martin should not have turned around and assaulted George Zimmerman who was returning to his car. If he had simply gone home, none of this would have happened.

And that is what parents and leaders should be teaching kids all over this country. Black kids, white kids, brown kids, yellow kids, red kids...does not matter. If you have to be out at night, get home early and avoid any trouble. Because if you do not, it may get you injured or killed. Kids like the white 17 year-old Christopher Cirvini too.

But the libs and race baiters do not care about saving kids, black kids or any other. They do not care about true justice, or the truth. All they care about is their agenda and moving it forward. No matter how deadly, no matter how atrocious, no matter how big the lie.

George Zimmerman Not Guilty

Here’s another way to look at this manufactured outrage: T-bone was looking for things to steal, while George was looking for guys looking for things to steal.
Once Sir Drank figured this out, he was looking for trouble and he found it when he jumped Zimmerman. So one less black punk, self-styled gangsta. Good riddance.
That may seem cold, but it really isn’t. They’re just Undead: Hostile, dangerous and relentless zombies.

There has to be some reason that this particular case caught the government and the race baiters attention. So, it's gotten me to thinking.

Ever heard of the “knock out game”? It was just a matter of time before one of the assailants got killed. I'm sure it has happened before. This appears to me to be a warning to gun owners that if you protect yourself then you'll be prosecuted. Think about it. The prosecution made a big deal about how trivial his injuries were. Broken nose, cuts to his head. Looks pretty bad and dangerous to me. But, AFAIK and maybe someone can correct me, you don't have to have any injuries to defend yourself. Hell, i’ve been severely injured and didn't show any cuts or swelling that was apparent. I believe that if he didn't have any apparent injuries he would have been convicted.

The way this case was prosecuted and portrayed in the media, then the only way you can defend yourself with a firearm is if you are half dead. And personally, I'm not gonna let it get to that point if I can help it.

One hard look at Obama’s city of Detroit tells the whole Trayvon Martin story!!! From the once mighty economic engine driving the American economy, the “Obamabots” have turned Detroit into a massive slum of human failure. The truth hurts....but....the truth is still the truth!!! What does Obama, Detroit and Trayvon Martin have in common??? Drugs, crime, Black racist hatred, thugs, criminals, street gangstas, broken families, multiple abortions, economic failure, etc. Trayvon Martin was far from the innocent little boy the media and his Black Racists advocates made him out to be!!! Teen thug would be a more apt description. Black Americans...take a good hard, honest look in the mirror...and, you will discover your shortcomings and self-inflicted wounds to the maximum!!!
