An Innocent Boy Is Dead And The Media Played Us (updated!)
Its important to mention facts about this case, not to blame Trayvon in any way, but to show how we are all being played by the media.
The media went with the meme that a white guy had shot Trayvon. That was untrue. He was Hispanic. The media kept using the term gated community, giving the impression that it was a white neighborhood, since the crime watch captain Zimmerman was white, we all assumed that. Not true. The neighborhood was only half white, the other half non-white (I am assuming black and Hispanic). It was not the lush lawns of a gated community like the media would have you believe, it was an apartment complex that had been victim to a bunch of robberies recently.
The witness that the police interviewed at the time of the shooting said that George Zimmerman was on the ground with Trayvon on top of him hitting him. Zimmerman did have grass stains on his back and his face his bleeding when the police get there. Now, who could blame Trayvon for attacking Zimmerman? Here was this guy following him, for all he knew, to rob and hurt him. So, it doesnt change the story really to point out that fact, but most of the media ignored this part because it didnt make the story juicy enough. Police played the 9-11 tape to Trayvons father and the father tells police that it is not his son screaming in the background. I cant tell you how upset so many were to hear that tape and imagine it was Trayvon screaming, but it wasnt. But heaven forbid the media correct that. Again, it just made the story juicer.

They can only divide the small of mind.
Dont hate the player, hate the game...
We will probably see more of these kinds of lop-sided racial victimization stories from the MSM/Dems leading up to the election.
They will do everything they can to help improve Obama’s chances for reelection.
And these kinds of stories make good distractions from the real joblessness numbers, economic data, foreign affairs, etc.
Aw jeeze, the smell of Roasted Nifong still hangs heavy in the air!
Maybe, maybe not.
Does anyone have a source / link to Trayvon’s height and weight?
I have seen a range from 5-10 and 140 lbs to 6-3 and 200 lbs.
OK, given. Now, what are conservatives doing to counter this flood of lies and black racism? Nothing? I thought not.
I wish I were as completely informed of all the facts in this case as you believe you are.
>>If someone other than a cop was following me, Id probably like to jump him also.<<
In this day and age, you’ll be dead.
Now for a bit of reason. I tell my kids that if someone is following, go to the nearest house. There were houses around right? Knock on the door and if the person is a threat, he will disappear.
My kids won’t end up dead.
Never bring Skittles and ice tea to a gun fight
I have omitted a little fact in my first post... upon initial confrontation, zimmerman turned around and was leaving... HE WAS ATTACKED WHILE LEAVING THE SCENE... this kinda puts a whole new spin on it..
The attention span of the masses has not yet been degraded to the point where 2 minute efficiency can be achieved. Currently the cycle takes about a month to play out.
Two months ago it was insisting on an ultrasound to attempt to dissuade a mother from killing her unborn child which was equated to "Rape". Last month is was the "slut" who turned out to be an activist who was too busy jet setting around Europe to find the $9 birth control pills at the corner Target.
Now everybody is on a first name basis with a dead Florida Teenager, has already tried, convicted and is ready to lynch the shooter, start a race war, or both.
Anyone care to guess what the leading cause of death is for a black, male teenager is? Can we ever deal with the meat of an issue and stop chasing after Media Matters, focus group tested polarizers?
You would think that a parent would at least look out and see who was screaming for help.
Seems as if they’re ginning up race riots to divert attention from Obama and his failed presidency. Or perhaps to enable him to declare martial law. Now let me get this foil hat off of my head...SSZ
Just as long as they are the same race as you.
This is all part of Obama’s master plan.
Never let a crises go to waste....even if you have to manufacture one.
