Trayvon Martin Update: Voice Experts on 911 Call, Neighbor Defends Zimmerman
americanlivewire.com ^ | 04-01-12 | Danielle Sherrill

Trayvon Martin Update. Today a second rally, in as many days, was held for Trayvon Martin. Martin’s parents, in their first major appearance since the death of their son, were joined by civil rights leaders in demanding justice for their son, Trayvon.

Trayvon Martin Update – Second Rally in Sanford in Two Days

The city of Sanford, Florida, is a community of about 54,000, which has now become famous. Thousands of members of the media, as well as activists, protesters, and celebrities have descended on the city as demands for the arrest of George Zimmerman increase.

As Trayvon’s family, activists, celebrities and ordinary folks across the country call for Zimmerman’s arrest, the community has been overwhelmed with news trucks, reporters, high-profile civil rights leaders including Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and thousands of protesters.

Although civil rights leader Al Sharpton is comparing Sanford to a modern-day Selma or Birmingham, most residents of Sanford do not share his assessment of race relations in the city.

In fact, Sharpton and other civil rights leaders involved in the Sanford protests, including the media, have drawn fire for their attempts to drag Americans back 50-years to the height of racial division and unrest in the nation.

News Contributor Juan Williams, formerly with NPR and now with Fox News, stated the following:

“Nobody says a word that over half of the murders in the United States are of black people and 90% of them are committed by other black people. What is this carnage in the black community, in Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, every day of the week? And nobody has a march for them… This is the civil rights challenge of this generation yet people want to replay what happened 50 years ago, Chris.“

“Nobody says a word that over half of the murders in the United States are of black people and 90% of them are committed by other black people.

What is this carnage in the black community, in Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, every day of the week? And nobody has a march for them…

The reason the MSM doesn't care about those deaths - the reason Sharpton and Jackson don't care - is those deaths don't further the cause of white liberal elites. The people who were paying for the 'rent-a-mob' in Sanford. Jaun is right on this...

Anybody ever test these peoples claims of audio identification accuracy (the sound analysis)? Or are these “experts” self proclaimed claims all that matter?

Agreed. The murders in Chicago alone - over 100 so far this year - demand attention, yet these civil rights “leader” say and do nothing. It’s not profitable for them.

I found that part of his statement to be even better. He’s subtly calling out Sharpton and company.

This shinola is going to backfire on these supposed bogus civil rights leaders and it would not surprise me if it brought the MSM, Obama, and the liberal elites down and out for a while!

They are stepping in it fully right now!

BTW, has anybody heard from that prick Santorum recently since he indicted Zimmerman?

If we think this is bad, wait until November.

They have found a worthless cause and will ride it until then. This is obamas army. Selective rage is an ugly thing.

They could care less about Martin.

No comment from Santorum since then that I know. That was what sunk him. Bad judgment, not having all of the facts, as they aren’t in yet... yet he says what he said. NOT PRESIDENTIAL.

Let[’s try that again..

The Florida funeral director who handled the burial of TM says there were no signs of a scuffle on the dead teen, contradicting Zimmerman’s story of a violent scuffle. Martin’s wound was the only apparent injury says the funeral director.

Well, the “forensic services” folks listed make money by presenting opinions in court. Owens wants 3K a day for testimony. I think an affidavit costs a thousand bucks.

Either the journalist in question popped for a grand to get an opinion, or this Owens outfit volunteered an opinion. I’m sure that the possibility of hundreds of thousands of web hits as the result of a controversial opinion never crossed their minds. I’m sure the journalist never mentioned that it would generate interest in his story if they said the voice belonged to Martin.

This situation has become just another situation that is good for the race baiters to expand their control (probably all about money anyway). It has nothing at all to do with race but what the heck, let’s use it to our advantage (Racist’s speak)...

I’m really getting tired of the Race baiters, the Media, and the “White, So-Sorry for the Past” Liberals. Almost all of us today have long ago have lived past these things but when you race baiters keep bringing up the past (long past) to support your statements - well, today’s generation has nothing to do with it nor have almost all living now. Time to move on and quit trying to relive the past!

You are only antagonizing the situation and actually aggravating race relations! Stop it!

A magic computer program working on an extremely poor quality audio file only had a 48% match with Zimmerman, but we don’t know what kind of match with Martin because there is no reference sample, so therefore it can’t be Zimmerman’s voice and must be Martin’s voice.

Magic computer programs are also the only evidence for Global Warming/Climate Change or whatever else they are calling it these days.

Those magic computer programs sure are handy.

The comment Santorum made was one of the most irresponsible comments I've heard about this whole thing. How could anyone vote for a person who would make a comment like he did without knowing the facts? I know Dems do it all the time, but this is unreal.

Santorum:

“Well, you know, obviously, I’m not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind,” Santorum said. “Obviously, in my opinion, someone … has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. You know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality.

All I would say is that, whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one, and a very, very tragic one.”

“All I can say is that, again, there are a lot of people who have very perverted views of reality and obviously have, as we see, people who do horrible things for seemingly senseless reasons,” Santorum said.

What an Asshat!! I would NEVER vote for this idiot!

Yeah, that is better. Juan does get it.

Liberal elites want to believe it's still 1964. They want to believe Bull Conner (democrat) a sheriff, George Wallace (democrat) Governor and Sen. Byrd (democrat KKK member) are all down in Sanford Florida running the show.

Idiots. I'd be embarrassed for them if they were capable of shame.

If Martin was fighting, his knuckles would’ve been bruised - that was the point of what the funeral director said.

Whether or not he really was bruised from fighting - who knows at this point. There is too much misinformation from both sides floating around.

If it’s the same call that was posted on the internet then it’s the woman callers child, Jeremy. She was telling Jeremy to come to her and to get down but it sounded like he was little and acting like a little kid not minding and yelling. That call was made AFTER the shooting.

Very simple on the so call voice match software...there is someone yelling for help on that tape...Its either Zimmerman or Martin... the person that placed the 911 call states it was Zimmerman....

So to counter it they need to provide evidence it is Martin yelling to counter two witness's...Zimmerman & the person that placed the 911 call...so does a 48 % it Zimmerman vs no % its Martin be because not tested yet disprove it Zimmerman per two witness's?...

Of course, he wouldn’t ‘bruise’ his knuckles by pounding Z’s head on the ground

Read the police report if you want true information.

Selma started White Guilt—Thats what gave Black politicians and race hustlers power and wealth. White guilt doesn’t reach into the Latino community. White guilt got Obama elected—and he needs it now if he and his crew are to stand a chance to win 4 more years. This whole thing and Zimmerman’s coming murder is all about power and keeping the White House.
I have no White Guilt—Any guilt was paid for by my Great great grandfather who fell wearing Union Blue at the Crater—dying beside black soldiers who fought and gave their lives for freedom.

He was reportedly punching him, too, thus the knuckles would probably have been bruised. I have read the police report.

What if Martin palm heeled Zimmerman in the nose?

How about a ridge hand?

What if Zimmerman’s nose offered no match for Trayvon’s knuckles and didn’t mark them at all?
