Well, well. The Orlando Sentinel. This is big. Let’s just hope that the race baiters don’t manage to lynch Zimmerman before the media decide it’s time to let the truth come out.

"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel. "

If that is true Zimerman had reason to fear for his life and was justified in shooting him.

Everything outside of the mouth-foaming that I've read indicates that the injuries Zimmerman sustained bear this out.

But it's just more fun to be outraged.

That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say.
Zimmerman has not spoken publicly about what happened, but that night, Feb. 26, and in later meetings he described and re-enacted for police what he says happened.

Obama’s son?

I must have seen 30+ segments of this issue on MSNBC (now the Trayvon Martin channel) but not one gave this account which may or may not be true. Every single one had Trayvon Martin chased and then shot in the back while begging for his life, go figure. Even FNC followed MSNBC's lead.

The above story wouldnt have motivated those protests in the same way.

If these reported facts are true then the “Hoodie” and “Skittles” flap has received a major blow. These facts may even rebound against the imbeciles in the White House.

Not only was Trayvon Martin said to be on top of Zimmerman, punching him, but there is some speculation that there was some struggle over the gun before Zimmerman shot him, and even that it was Martin who discovered the gun and first started to get it out.

One shot was fired from the chamber, and the magazine was still full. Why didn’t the chamber reload after firing, from the magazine? Maybe, it’s been suggested, because they were fighting over the gun and Zimmerman’s hand blocked the reloading. That is speculative, of course. But if the chamber was empty, either the gun was defective or something of the sort may have happened.

I’m really angry at Obama and the race haters who stirred up lynch mobs and an inane “national dialogue” over this.

IF we had to liste that “blacks are under attack” and “black dads have to have this talk with their sons”....

Then why if these facts prove out, can’t we say that we “are under attack BY blacks” or that at least hispanics are under attack, or at least hispanic neighborhood watch volunteers?

Because all of this racial generalization is insane and dangerous.

What percentage of young black males have a dad at home to talk to them? What percent of young black males commit crimes, take drugs, etc?

I’d like to live in the real world, not a world of leftist fantasy.

When Hollywood Stars and NBA players take up a cause, you can use that as a reliable indicator that whatever the even was , that thing has reached the height of stupidity, that we are quite far from the truth, and that things will begin to turn the other direction.

Do the police have pictures of Zimmerman’s face? My son recently got decked while he was working as a security guard on Mardi Gras night. Knocked him out and everything. The police took pictures of his face, which was pretty bloodied up. I’m just wondering if that was done in this case. It sure would help to prove Zimmerman’s story of what happened.

Has there been an autopsy report yet? That would solve the “shot in the back” claim. Of course, even without an autopsy, police can usually know facts like these. Has any of this been included in the reports made public?

Am I in before the people who assert that Florida law allows Martin to approach and hit somebody who has been following him?

Oh how about the one who claims Zimmerman's testimony is inadmissible because it is self serving?

And of course, the group that will say this is just Zimmerman's story, and there is no evidence to back it up.

Trayvon was visiting his father's fiancée, who lived there. He had been suspended from school in Miami after being found with an empty marijuana baggie. Miami schools have a zero-tolerance policy for drug possession.

I thought this was interesting. The innocent lad was suspended for drug possession in school.

By the way, the grown-up photo I saw yesterday (FB? Twitter?) of a 17-year-old Trayvon with gold teeth, tattoos, sleepless eyes, and an ugly expression, was a match, feature for feature, with the innocent-looking photo of a younger Travon now being circulated in the state-run media. Ears, nose, chin, even the shape of the upper teeth—quite distinctive, and they all match. It was like the portrait of Dorian Gray, what that kid had become.

Notice that Rene Stutzman of the Orlando Sentinel composed the sentence as:

"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel"

rather than a more appropriate and sequentially correct:

"With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer, climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, before Zimmerman defended himself by shooting and killed the attacker, authorities have revealed to the Orlando Sentinel."

Rene immediately propagandizes some more:

"That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say."

Much?!? Just what in that statement from authorities has not been collaborated!?! Eventually Rene Stutzman gets down and dirty in her leftist media skankiness:

"Trayvon was an unarmed black teenager who had committed no crime, an innocent who was gunned down while walking back from a 7-Eleven with nothing more sinister than a package of Skittles and can of Arizona iced tea."

The crime, which cost Martin his life, was attacking Zimmerman so violently and viciously that Zimmerman had reasonable cause to fear for his life. On this story the media have flaunted their complete and utter fifth-column political whoredom.

There is no way Zimmerman will get a fair trial if he is charged with any crime. If it’s a black jury, he’ll go down because of jury nullification. If it’s a white jury, they’ll either acquit because of the facts or convict because of either the facts or fear of reprisals. The best he can hope for is a plea. But that won’t satisfy the race baiters. They’ll accuse the prosecution of giving Zimmerman favorable treatment. And if Zimmerman would happen to go to prison, he’s a dead man. He’ll have to go into solitary. He needs to escape to Sweden or Upper Mongolia or somewhere like that.

I doubt that he will. They have very little evidence and as of yet have been unable to effect an arrest much less an indictment and conviction.

Where is the outrage when black young men are being murdered by other young black men? Many children are caught in the crossfire by drive by shootings in the urban areas, and many murders are being committed by 17 year old black “youths” that may look like Obama’s son. Why hasn’t there been outrage by black leaders over those?
