Skip to comments.Zimmerman was on the ground being punched when he shot Trayvon Martin(FL)
Posted on 03/22/2012 4:55:30 AM PDT by marktwain
Last weekend in the city of Chicago alone, gangbangers slaughtered ten people and wounded another forty. The youngest fatality is only six years old. The youngest person wounded is only one-year-old. Many of the victim were pedestrians sprayed with bullets in drive by shootings. The national news has said nothing about this.
So why does one shooting in Florida warrant weeks of national news? Why has there been thousands of articles a day, for the last four days, about one single shooting?
Almost all of the news items about George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin contains a combination of false statements, opinions presented as facts, transparent distortions, and a complete absence of some of the most relevant details. Almost all news items are written soley from the point of view of the grieving family. The media also fills their articles with outdated baby-faced pictures of Trayvon. Very few include that he was a towering 6'2 football player. Is the media really reporting the news, or is this classic agitation/propaganda to advance a political agenda.

I’m not the one making a big deal out of the screaming. The folks who want to lynch Zimmerman are. Have you looked at the videos and comments on youtube? The comments are rather....disturbing. “They killed Trevon”, “he’s screaming for help and then he gets shot”. Mom even said that is him screaming.
Now, my point being, if that is not Martin, then what agenda is being advanced here? And why?
I don’t have a dog in this hunt. It doesn’t really matter to me one way or another what happened. It’s just kinda suspicious that this is getting the play that it is. And when I see people jumping to all kind of conclusions, convicting a guy who even the police and DA don’t think needs to be arrested, it gets me to wondering...
Don’t pick a fight with guys that might be carrying. Easy calculus.
In a way, that may be correct, but I have only read that it was claimed by George Zimmerman.
He is the only surviving witness to much of the altercation.
If you found an account where a witness other than George Zimmerman said this, please provide a link.
Everything anyone says who is trying to bring some sanity to this media lynching is subjected to serious scrutiny, so we have to be very precise.
They just said on CNN that they would seek out the DOJ to declare this a ‘hate crime’ to obtain a conviction.
Ok, then the case of the elderly couple being tortured, beaten, robbed and raped during a home invasion by blacks just the other day in OK should also be a hate crime.
Theres a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Reminds me of the Christian/Newsom masacre.
A young white couple was kidnapped by a gang of 5 blacks, raped, and tortured for two days before they were cut up, burned and tossed away in garbage bags.
This was covered up by the MSM.
They refused to declare it a ‘hate crime’.
Most of them got away with sentences lighter than called for.
It’s so confusing. When a near-white community watcher murders an unarmed black boy using a firearm (aren’t we all for firearms?!) the victim’s side of the story, as much as we can make it out, is “MSM propaganda”, but when we read from the same source about a female teacher having sex with a 17 year old boy, it’s the God’s truth!
Self ping for later read.
Link please to a reliable source....because, frankly, I bet you can't.
“When a near-white community watcher”
I swear to God I’m in the twilight zone. Every time I think I’m done with this thread some more mis-informantion pops up.
THE DAMN NEIGHBORHOOD WAS NOT MAJORITY WHITE!!!
There is a very telling part in the call when the dispatcher asks for his address, and Zimmerman states he doesn’t want to give that info because, “I don’t know where this kid is”. If at that point in the tape,after Martin ran and the dispatcher told Zimmerman to go back to the truck to meet the police, he obviously could not have been chasing Martin.
Don't be a black guy walking home through George Zimmerman's neighborhood...that'll get you killed.
Who’s talking about the community? I was talking about community watcher Zimmerman. Return to your twilight zone.
I guess this is the first time I have ever heard of a person described as “near white”.
You use that phrase often?
This sentence shows that you are not looking at this story with an open mind.
Is it not interesting how the story link below was totally ignored by State Run media — it is all about the color of the victims and the color of the perp in the lame stream media.
First time, since I didn’t know how to describe him. Latino Jew?
His family describes him as Hispanic
I'm a bad person. Like Samuel Clemens hisself, probably "racist", too.
This site sums it up well- with some interesting ‘comments’:
I'm still waiting for the MSM to post the photo of a 17 year old high school junior rather than an 11 or 12 year old kid.......
If one is going to make judgments on an internet forum it helps to have ALL the relevant information on hand.
I suspect Kyle Rogers is correct in the information he has provided but just like Obama, the rest of the MSM will not fulfill their duty in fully investigating the same.......
Don't forget what's ultimately at stake here and that's Florida's support of the 2nd Amendment and expecially their CASTLE DOCTRINE LAW............
