Trayvon Martin's family to attend George Zimmerman's hearing
ClickOrlando.com ^ | April 19, 2012

SANFORD, Fla. - The family of Trayvon Martin will sit in the same courtroom on Friday as George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed their son, for the first time.

Benjamin Crump said the Martin family is attending the hearing at the request of special prosecutor Angela Corey. Crump said the family is bracing themselves to be the same room with Zimmerman and will be hoping he doesn't get bond.

Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said Zimmerman would like to meet with the Martin family.

"There's no reason not to have a conversation," O'Mara said Thursday. "It should be personal, it should be private."

Crump said the Martin family has considered Zimmerman's proposals to meet, but have said no.

"The meeting is not appropriate right now," Crump said. "We think that it's self-serving right now to say 'I want to apologize the day before my bond hearing.'"

Zimmerman’s attorney was playing a poor gambit.

Couldn’t disagree more. Them turning him down is the best thing for Zimmerman.

I saw a brief shot on TV this afternoon of Zimmerman in handcuffs.

Seeing that caused a burning anger to arise in my body. I literally could feel it.

That innocent man being imprisoned by the scum of the earth media and the even sorrier politicians who don’t have the moral backbone to stand up to them.

“The meeting is not appropriate right now,” Crump said. “We think that it’s self-serving right now to say ‘I want to apologize the day before my bond hearing.’”

Who said he wanted to apologize? Maybe he wanted to explain.

Trayvon Martin's family to attend George Zimmerman's hearing

Are they going to sit in the pitchforks and torches section, or the rope and kerosene section?

The wording used by Crump shows bad faith, which is all we can expect from the opposition.

Zimmerman has been made a symbol by the left.

The bolded words are so obviously biased that it's nauseating.

In an article I read here earlier Crump said the incident is Zimmerman’s fault even if Martin hit him first.

I know, it’s insane. Even if one tries to be absolutely absurdly biased in the other direction, one steers much closer to the truth, if not directly into it, than the race inciters involed with and reporting on this situation.

I’ve no sympathy for the Martins in this matter at all, not one iota. My sympathy lies with the victim of Martin, the media, Obama, and Angela Corey, that being George Zimmerman.

Who’s the target audience for that little bit a theater? Was he hoping to sway the judge or prosecutor, maybe impress gullible potential jurors?

On the other hand, had they agreed it could have turned into “bereaved family tormented by son’s killer” headlines, or they could have even attacked him. Just bad karma.

Zimmerman has been judged guilty, just not by a judge or jury.

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.

Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?

(the autopsy states she was raped. Don’t think all of these animals didn’t all participate)

And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?

WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?

__________________________

Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.

Bingo! And Crump had to try to spin it into an attempt to appologize in an attempt to cover for them.

The prosecutor inviting them was pure game playing.

You know, we really do, no joke. I have no doubt whatsoever that Martin’s timely death has prevented him from committing crimes not only against Zimmerman, but God knows whom else.

Now, as thanks, our society places Zimmerman’s entire existence in jeopardy.

As far as I am concerned, George Zimmerman is a hero.

Thank you, George, and may the Lord protect you and your family.

I have prayed for Zimmerman. I don’t usually petition God for specifics since I know that He knows what is best and I don’t, His plans are eternal and I am a tiny soul.

But I have prayed that He please protect George Zimmerman. From his photo and what I have read he seems like a very good man. He is being so wronged by evil people that it is causing many of us great pain in our hearts.

Correction to my post. I thought Mr. Straight had passed as well, but he did not.

I am further troubled knowing that this hero of the greatest generation is going to have to relive this attack upon him and his wife by the worst generation at a trial.

There is no fate than mankid can issue to this ****ing bastard that can even approach what he deserves.

This is why Hell exists, and he needs to be sent there immediately.

I have felt pain as well, little jeremiah.

You are very right about Zimmerman’s appearance.

He does not radiate malice in any way at all. That photo of him shown ad nauseum was a travesty of dishonesty...and the exact opposite was done to the criminal, Martin.

Compare Zimmerman’s face to the face of the stinking rat that attacked the Straits in Ok.. His face radiates malice and hate.

Our world is so wrong, little jeremiah. If I said it was backwards or Bizarro World or Wonderland, none of that describes what it is.

Sometimes I feel like I am in Hell right now.

My solace is my deep understanding that this world is where rebellious souls are supposed to learn our lessons. It is not meant to be “perfect” because so many are rebellious; sort of like a reformatory.

Everyone who tries to do the right thing to serve God will be rewarded. I know that. And I pray for all who suffer.

That is a facsinating way to look at this world, little jerimiah.

The word “rebellious” is without a doubt the one word that describes my entire life thus far.

But it not the Lord whom I want to rebel against, it is man.

"Headlines should be changed to read, “Security guard denied meeting with his assailant’s relatives who seek to deprive him of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.”

________________

An EX-Security guard.

I wonder why?

Could it have something to do with his TEMPER or his STATE of MIND and HIS ACTIONS?

Zimmerman isn't getting screwed. He screwed himself. As he always did. Prior to attempting his usual MO of turning the tables to make himself out to be the poor victim.

Zimmerman is sole responsible for his reckless actions.

The victim was walking home, while talking on the phone with his girlfriend. At what point of the confrontation did Zimmerman EVER announce to that young man that he was a neighborhood watch captain? My guess is NEVER.

Go ahead and tell your teens that they should not be afraid of some stranger watching them from vehicle. And if that stranger gets out and follows them in the dark......? Tell them not to worry. It might just be an armed and frustrated hot-head who thinks he has the same authority as a real LEO and some has some other small 'issues in his past' which might interfere with their "Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.”

This dead man walking might be your idea of a hero.

Not mine.

Thank you, George Zimmerman for ridding this world of the violent black thug, Trayvon Martin.

Now Martin will no longer have the opportunity to commit crimes against anyone else, and none of us law abiding citizens will ever have to worry about being confronted and beaten by him.

Thank you, sir, you are indeed a hero.

Don’t bring a bag of Skittles to a gunfight. Trayvon was unfortunately shot. He caused his own demise. Gun powder residue was found on the so called innocent teen. There was a struggle for a gun. The evidence is not on your side.

Comment on another forum from someone in FL who has been actively following this:


Just talked to a local sheriff and he said at a minimum, had Trayvon Martin lived, he would have been charged with aggravated assault which would have probably been elevated to aggravated battery because using the concrete sidewalk as a weapon would count in this case because repeated and intentional blows were used.
