Thanks! This was the first Trayvon thread I followed closely, and I was trying to come up to speed. It’s amazing how much misinformation is going around. For instance, just up thread a poster claimed Wagist has retracted the Trayvon-swung-at-a-bus-driver tweet story. No, they haven’t. Wagist has backed off the *tone* of some of their prior stories, but they stand by all their facts. Fwiw.
Poor attempt at dodging the issue; I purposely identified activities having NOTHING to do with the HOA that they have NO jurisdiction over!

Thanks Fantasy, saved me from wasting time dealing with Anglian. BTW, did you see where he changed his NO_LIMIT_NIGGA twitter account in Dec 2011. Details on his new account made the news today and included one tweet that him advising someone to shoot someone else for lying? See http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/29/second-trayvon-martin-twitter-feed-identified/ I still think Martin was a wannabe gangster.
Here's some more from WAGIST you might enjoy.

Progressives, its time to go buy your guns. by Joshua Vogel September 10, 2011
Im a liberal (or progressive, if you prefer the term). Ive always had mixed feelings about gun ownership.
So I spent the next few days thinking about the state of nation, and imaging what America is going to look like in a few years. If Obama stays in power without a liberal Congress, things will be much the same for years to come: political gridlock and slowly worsening conditions for the middle class.
If the Republicans take back the executive branch, then political gridlock is the best we can hope for. If theyre able to get traction with their radical fiscal policies, theyll keep feeding our money to corporations, banks and the ultra-wealthy. The middle class will shrink. More of us will fall into poverty, and with fewer people buying any products, even the large corporations will start to buckle and fail.
To be fair, most folks were just there to talk about guns, and play with guns, and buy new gadgets to affix to their guns. Their comfort and knowledge of firearms made me feel nervous. I was in store full of 50+ people who didnt feel at all shy about expressing their distain for liberals and socialists. All of them, Im convinced, would have had no trouble gunning me down in an honest firefight.
I went into that store to buy a gun to protect my family in the event of a riot. I walked out feeling very nervous that if their actually was major social upheaval in the United States, a lot of angry conservatives would have no problem forming an organized militia, and they wouldnt have a whole lot of sympathy for the scores of unarmed socialist progressives out there.
Of course, the unit owner is not responsible for the criminal conduct of his tenant. He is completely responsible for binding his tenant to the same rules by which he is bound.
I wasn't dodging anything.
OK, I read your cheap claptrap, and was not impressed at all! Just more of the same... Buzz off, you haven’t a clue!!
OK, thanks for clarifying that; it didn’t sound like that to start with (or mebbe I’ve been subjected to too many trolls here lately to trust many of the posts). Best wishes!
Yada, yada, yada...If you’re afraid of law-abiding citizens that are concerned with protecting their families by buying guns and ammo, then you are a liberal dupe and ignorant of the basis for the founding of this country. Don’t bother to respond because I’m not interested in anymore of your propaganda and liberal excuses for denying the purposes of the the Bill of Rights!!
I’m not a troll. Thank God there’s a DA in charge. I read the news and it has nothing to do with math. When can we stop- with the silliness? Poor George Zimmerman had no marks on his, no swelling, no blood. Sure, I believe George Zimmerman and his family. They are molesting the truth. Just cuz someone isn’t a racist, doesn’t make them a troll.
What on earth is that screed supposed to prove? I’m serious; why did you post it? Are you now shilling the liberal POV on guns? Or are you establishing Wagist cred, in pointing out that when they say Trayvon swung on a bus-driver, they’re saying it as bleeding heart libs w’out even a vestige of pro-gun sentiment to color their findings/comments?
It’s more than a little odd when ‘conservatives’ post leftist cant w’out comment, critical or otherwise. It looks like they’re giving free publicity to the other side. Or if not, what am I missing?
‘cant’ defined, for the vocabulary challenged:
1.clichéd talk: boring talk filled with clichés and platitudes
2.hypocritical talk: insincere talk, especially regarding morals or religion
3.jargon: the special language or vocabulary of a particular group, especially a group whom some people look down on
4. Anything liberals say about guns

Do you have access to the medical report? All these inferences from a blurry video boggle my mind. Trayvon’s mother described these far-from-dispositive-images as “icing on the cake”. What kind of mother talks like that? Icing on the cake is a ‘bonus’, ‘gravy’, some little added extra to an already great prize:
“The job promotion was fabulous, but the new sports car was the icing on the cake”. [I got this illustration online; I didn’t make it up.]
Yes, the Mom is having an ‘icing on the cake’ day over the blurry video, but I wonder if you have anything less subjective to go by?
I sure hope so; otherwise, it sounds like Zimmerman is guilty until proven innocent.
I had not seen that. Thanks for the update.
Sounds to me as if Trayvon was in trouble. Each of his lengthier suspensions was for a more serious offense. The rap lyrics he chose to post gloried raw hate and violence. And what about the backback loaded w jewelry and a ‘flat head’ screwdriver for which he wasn’t even investigated? His parents’ reaction to that news is very disturbing. When your child is drifting into trouble, you can react at least one of two ways. (1) acknowledge the problem and potential risks and do something about it. (2) deny, deny deny.
It appears they chose (2). Very sad.
It’s odd how the press doesn’t know EMT’s make reports when they treat someone... Have they even tried to get facts rather than just ‘feelings’ from racebaiters. There really IS hard information out there...
So if a lefty discovers tweets to or from Trayvon, the tweets should be ignored, but if a conservative finds ***the exact same tweets*** we can talk about them?
Are you really this crazy? The tweets are the tweets. If you don’t like the content of the tweets, okay; I get that. But trying to discredit the actual tweets/info/evidence itself based on who dug them up is insane. Really, really lunatic stuff. I wouldn’t expect to see it on this site, but there’s a first time for everything I guess.
Oh and btw, when you are going to apologize for saying Wagist misidentified the sender of the tweets? That was a raw, naked falsehood. You need to own up to it, so as to salvage any tattered credibility you still possess.
Excellent point. On top of which, I saw a still shot yesterday in which it appeared that Zimmerman had a horrible gash on the back of his scalp. If I were merely biased, I’d call that proof of his story. I’m willing to wait for the medical report, however. I’m more interested in the facts that in shilling for either side...which is far, far more than I can say for the majority of Trayvon’s defenders.
HIs brother told Piers Morgan last night that he lied “more than his brother George.” I don’t trust any of George Z’s fmaily members and that is my opinion.
Could you kindly provide that quote in context w a link? Thank you.
YOu mean you didn’t watch CNN last night? I’ll find PIers’ Morgan’s page for you. I haven’t ever been there but I bet this interview is there or, they will probably replay it Saturday or Sunday night. He said he lied more ethan George or words to that effect. Then his brother’s expression went “ruh roh”.
I look forward to reading the full, exact quote, in context, w a link.
Thank you in advance.
