Posted on 03/03/2014 11:35:39 AM PST by Ray76
... The case highlighted Florida's "stand your ground" law, which makes it easier for individuals to use deadly force in self defense by removing the shooter's duty to retreat from a confrontation.
She began her speech by noting that Connecticut law does not have a similar "stand your ground" provision. That, she said, is a good thing.
"It does not work, it is not fair and that's the reason why my purpose, my life work, is to go around the country" and push for the repeal of such policies, she said.

1) Florida's "stand your ground" law was never an issue in this case. Neither the Prosecution nor the Defense made any issue of Florida's "stand your ground" law.
2) There is no mention of Sabrina Fulton applying for trademark protection .
3) There is no mention of the development and marketing of the "Trayvon Martin" image by Julison Communications of Orlando, Florida, hired by Sabrina Fulton's attorneys Natalie Jackson and Benjamin Crump. This includes the dissemination of a photo outdated by five years. 
 Application Serial Number 85575974 filed 03/21/2012, http://tsdr.uspto.gov/documentviewer?caseId=sn85575974&docId=APP20120324080734#docIndex=24&page=1
Mah lil baby boy never did nuthin to nobody.
Yo time is up
“”It does not work, it is not fair “
It did work and was fair. What was unfair was the anti-gun MSM getting on all 4’s due to lib white guilt. Zimmerman is and will always be the victim and not your scumbag gangbanger “son”.
Yeah, it's a great thing for the bad guys.
Trayvon Martin’s mother raised a head banging doper who chose the wrong guy to bang heads on. If more people were armed, there’d be way fewer dopers banging heads.
It's a shame her purpose, her life work, was not to raise a decent, law-abiding son so that George Zimmerman would not have been in a fight for his life against a thug with no morals. It's a good thing GZ was armed and able to use his weapon. Otherwise it was just a matter of time (perhaps months, perhaps seconds) until Sweet Innocent Trayvon would have been a murderer.
Man, aren’t this harpy’s 15 minutes up yet?
George Zimmerman did society a big favor.
Idiot woman. Many Southern states used to have “duty to flee” laws to prevent Blacks from defending themselves against klansmen who would attack a house. The owner would be required to flee out the back into the arms of the waiting mob.
Such “duty to Flee” laws were not used against whites.
"And the truth of the matter is, Emmett Till became a symbol for those times, as Trayvon Martin has become a symbol for this time. I mean, there are multiple Trayvon Martins whose names never make the newspapers or the headlines. The circumstances surrounding that allowed it to be, but there were multiple Emmett Tills. There were multiple lynchings. There were multiple, you know, young black boys..." - Oprah Winfrey
" We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, thats a job for all of us. Thats the way to honor Trayvon Martin." - President of the United States Barack Hussein 0bama
If this woman spent as much time raising Trayvon as she does exploiting his death, maybe he’d be alive today.
That paper is so left wing that wrapped fish jump out of it and birds kick it out of their cages.
This fool neglected her child (trayvon) and had someone else raise him. Now this idiot is harping about gun control and other issues. Did someone cancel her EBT card so that she has to exploit the death of her son? What a fool.
Not to mention that stand your ground was not used as a defense in the Zimmerman case. Momma is just a race hustler and a grifter.
Sabrina Fulton did not raise him full time after the age of 2. Trayvon was raised in various ad hoc arrangements. But the media never tell us this.
The media show us Trayvon’s mother and father as if they were an intact family, when in fact, they have not been a couple for many years.
THE MEDIA also never tell us how she can afford to travel and makes speeches and not go to work everyday anymore. Somebody is paying her bills, but the media have no interest in disclosing such information.
I explained that sales was low, but all she kept sayin' was "Show me da money, Honey!"
Let's get with legal and accounting to see if she is due any money, sand if not, let's book her into more venues. That "Trayvon Soirée" scent would frighten away any honkey from "Standing His Ground." Should be a seller!
Seems to me it was her son who used “Stand Your Ground”. He could have fled but he chose to stay and attack Zimmerman.
I will stand my ground against anything you or anyone else brings into this world.
I do not fear you.
This woman and her sperm donor should be charged with
“EXPLOITING A DEAD CHILD”
or, to be more specific
“EXPLOITING A DEAD, NEGLECTED CHILD WHO BROUGHT ABOUT HIS OWN DEMISE”
wait... isn’t her son the AGGRESSSOR int he ‘stand your ground’ case (if there was one)
So she is advocating that people don’t shoot thugs like her son when they get attacked by them?
These people are beyond stupid.
I had a dream last night about a kid who rode the church bus. His name is also Trayvon. He’s probably about 17 now, Trayvon Martin’s age when he got popped. Like Trayvon Martin, he has worthless parents (if you can call them that). What’s really sad, is when you spend time with these kids you can see that they all have soft hearts, just like your own kids, who want someone to care about them. But he was angry. Angry that he and his siblings stunk because there were about 5 pit bulls living in there house. Angry that he didn’t know who his father was. My guess is that little bus kid has morphed into something much like the Trayvon who got himself shot that evening.
Here is a copy of a Monday, February 24 letter I sent to the Director of News and Editorial Communications for the University of Connecticut, Kristen Cole. There has been no response.
Apparently the University of Connecticut endorses the lie.
Good point. There is a lot of hurt in the world. Being born the victim of terrible parents is one of them. God’s love heals all wounds. Thank you for the counter perspective.
“Yeah, it’s a great thing for the bad guys.”
Of whom her son was a member.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Winner
Well, I am sure she is not doing this for all the money she is making with her ‘speaking engagements’. Right? It has nothing to do with that.
Wonder how many people she attacked while she was there?
These people are not gonna let this go until they win. That’s the pattern.
Trayvon tried playing the knock-out game with the wrong guy...
This woman needs to go on back home and TRY to raise her other son. By the way, I wonder who is raising him, while she gallivants around the country? I also wonder if the remaining son will turn out like his thug brother Trayvon? Oh, stupid me, he probably will.
What is is with the no-name psychopathic people using the death of thier children for their own gain? Semehow because they had a kid die they are supposed to be an expert at something? Grieve by all means, but if you don’t know the facts please be quiet and quit agitating!
UConn has this lady as a speaker?
Lordy,they must be desperate.
Maybe they’ll award her an honorary doctorate this spring.
