Trayvon Martin's dad speaks about son in NY
WFTV.com ^ | April 24,2014 | Associated Press

Posted on 04/24/2014 10:06:43 AM PDT by Q-ManRN

According to Newsday, Martin said he would like to see his son's name "in the history books of modern days, taking his place beside Emmett Till."

Martin's son was fatally shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who later was acquitted of second-degree murder under Florida's "stand your ground" law.

Notice how the Associated Press continues to maintain that George Zimmerman was acquitted using stand your ground laws. It makes no difference that Zimmerman's legal defense team and numerous legal commentators have pointed out repeatedly that Zimmerman was acquitted using a legal argument based upon a standard self-defense laws, not the stand your ground doctrine.

I just heard this same article quoted verbatim on the news on the radio while listening to Rush Limbaugh.

Regressives and their press just keep repeating the same lies because they know if they keep repeating the lies the less informed will treat that information as factual. If you find that tactic hard to believe, just consider the so-called "Nation of Palestine" which never existed.

Was Emmitt Till also a thug who got shot while attacking an innocent man?

According to Newsday, Martin said he would like to see his son's name "in the history books of modern days, taking his place beside Emmett Till."

It's a shame Papa Martin wasn't interested in his son when Sweet Little Trayvon was alive. Attentive parenting could have saved that kid's life. As it is, Trayvon belongs in the history books as a footnote below other petty thugs who never even succeeded as criminals beyond the minimum needed to pay for cheap drugs.

Yes, I agree. However, there is even a more fundamental word parsing going on here in some circles.

They continually use the term ‘acquitted’ as if he was let off on some technicality. His jury judged him “NOT GUILTY”, and while not guilty is legally an acquittal, people can be acquitted for other things, too besides a jury saying Not Guilty. To me it is a deliberate attempt to dilute the fact that jurors heard the evidence and judged him not guilty.

Associated Press is headed for the dustbin of history. They have been reliably “progressive” forever.

Some say that they were the start and are the heart of the “progressive” old media.

stand your ground was a tort reform issue in this case. Due to his sons criminal act, there can be no civil suit.

THAT is where the complaining comes from.

If George Zimmerman hadn’t killed Trayvon, most likely someone else would have. Possibly a member of Trayvon’s race.

I’m sure after getting his son some sort of monument, Martin will try to obtain monuments for the hundreds of white people murdered by the Black Klan every year.

He might go down in history next to Justin Bieber:

JUSTIN BIEBER — THE DAY THE SIZZURP DIED

Main Ingredient Yanked

Party’s over for Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy and a bunch of hip hop stars who love sizzurp — aka lean, aka codeine cough syrup — because their brand of choice is getting pulled from pharmacies.

But before JB cries in his double-cup, he should know ... this whole mess is probably his fault.

“It’s a shame Papa Martin wasn’t interested in his son when Sweet Little Trayvon was alive”. Exactly. If he had been as passionate about raising his alive son as he is in promoting his dead son maybe this story would have never happened. He needs to just stop the foolish talk.

Well I would like to see Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome take their places in the history books along with Emmett Till. Their “crime”? Being the wrong color while crossing the path of some black sociopaths who tortured them before murdering them-allowing Channon to die a slow agonising death as they sat down to eat breakfast.

Or 12 yo Johnothan Foster, killed by a black woman using a blowtorch, for the “crime” of being a young white boy.

The 11,000 “lost” unprocessed rape kits recently “discovered” in Detroit might also be worth a mention. If it were possible now to process them all now, the results might be very interesting.

There might even be a few more 80, 90 something yo elderly white women amongst the victims.

But sure, let’s make a wanna-be gangsta who tried his damndest to murder a man only to have the tables turned when the man defended his life, a “civil rights martyr”. He actually just about fits with the rest of the pantheon anyway.

I made the mistake of recently mentioning Zimmerman to a black coworker who often carries when in bad neighborhoods. The lack of fair, unbiased rational thought is stunning and disgusting.

I asked him what he would do if he had a teenager on him who was beating his head into the ground. It didn’t matter at that point. The conversation was over and he shut off after saying some worshipful words about the child Trayvon.

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old Chicago lad lynched in Mississippi for flirting with a white woman leaving a store. (Till had been dared to do so by his companions and almost certainly was not flirting in earnest.) The woman’s (white) husband and his half-brother kidnapped Till, took him to a barn, beat him savagely, gouged out an eye, then shot him through the head and dumped his weighted body in the Tallahatchie river.

Trayvon Martin was 17. He was beating George Zimmerman’s head into a concrete walkway when Zimmerman, flat on his back, shot Martin once, fatally.

But Till and Martin were both black, so obviously they are exactly the same. /s

Martin's son was fatally shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who later was acquitted of second-degree murder under Florida's "stand your ground" law.

This sentence is a blatant lie. Zimmerman was acquitted on the basis of self-defense. "Stand Your Ground" law was NEVER argued in any fashion as part of the defense.

Nope. He was a young man beaten and murdered (actually murdered) back in 1955 for flirting with a white woman. Says a lot about Martin’s dad that he’s comparing his son to him.

I just honestly don’t care what they think anymore. If they’re not the criminals themselves, they excuse and enable, if not downright deify the murdering raping savages. Not that it would’ve gotten through his thick head, but I wonder what he’ve had said if a white teen was bashing his head and his ony recourse was his gun.

Well, he’d have said nothing. Incovenient truths, like hate facts (statistics) are just ignored like the wart on the end of their nose.

Not that it explains anything, but I did find it interesting that Till Jr’s father was executed after a court martial for raping at least three Italian women and murdering one while stationed in Europe. Till Jr was already getting into trouble with the law while living in Chicago with his mother, who sent him to relatives in Mississippi in the hope that being away from bad companions would help turn him away from where he was headed, namely, prison. According to some of his friends, he bragged that in Chicago black men hit on white women all the time and noone dared to say anything to them.

The problem has been the focus on irrelevant arguments – some of which are actually unsupported by the evidence.

1. ‘George Zimmerman (GZ) racially profiled Trayvon Martin (TM)’ There is no evidence of this.

2. ‘GZ disobeyed an order by the police’ * The civilian dispatcher, Sean Noffke, testified that he did not give GZ an order and, in fact, he, like his fellow dispatchers, are trained not make comments that sound like commands. * Noffke also testified under cross that, as a result of his asking GZ which way TM was going, GZ could have reasonably interpreted this as being asked to follow Martin. * It is also not a crime in Florida to disregard a comment made by a civilian dispatcher.

3. ‘GZ got out of his car’ Not a crime on public property and not negligent either.

4. ‘GZ followed TM’ Again, anyone can follow anyone on a public street unless the followee has obtained a restraining order against the follower and even there, the RS only places time, place, and manner restrictions on the person enjoined.

5. ‘GZ wasn’t really injured’ * Under Florida’s self-defense laws, one doesn’t have to be injured AT ALL to use deadly force * No one is required to refrain from defending himself while another is engaged in or attempting to commit a felony.

6. ‘TM is dead through no fault of his own’ * If you believe that TM assaulted GZ, then he IS dead as a result of his own actions.

7. ‘GZ could have left’ * Under Florida law, there is not a duty to withdraw rather than use deadly force * TM was straddling GZ so how the latter was supposed to leave the scene is unanswered.

8. ‘GZ was armed and TM wasn’t’ * One’s fists can be considered weapons and can result in severe bodily harm or death. * GZ was legally carrying a weapon * There is no requirement under the law that the same weapon be used by the assailant * A homeowner can kill an intruder whether or not he has been threatened * Those that attack cannot feign surprise if they are met with superior firepower.

9. ‘Stand Your Ground!’ * SYG is NOT at issue in this trial. * The defense is a classic self-defense case.

10. ‘Black men NEVER get to use SYG!’ * Wrong http://tinyurl.com/nboht35

11. ‘GZ is a man and TM was a boy!’ * As if ‘boys’ don’t commit murder, rape, and assault everyday in this country.
