Skip to comments.Wendy Fisher's teenage daughter saw her mother gunned down
Posted on 07/09/2012 7:04:16 PM PDT by suthener
MOBILE, Alabama -- The fatal gun shot that cut down a single mother of two Saturday night occurred in front of her teenage daughter, family members said today.
The daughter, who asked that her name not be used, said she was standing in her front yard when her mother, Wendy Fisher, ran across the street to retrieve their dog.
Fisher yelled at a passing car to slow down because it nearly hit the pet, the daughter said. At that point a black man with short hair got out of the car, she said.
The daughter said she is not sure if he or one of the two or three other men inside the vehicle fired 3 shots. The man who exited the car was wearing blue jeans and a light T-shirt, she said.

Wonder when the non-Holder’s people will wake up and man up?
Loks like we will have to pressure our local and state politicians to take this Black racist violence for real...there needs to be civil rights protection for whites, Asians, and others when vicitmized by Black Racist Hate Crime (look, if white people did this to blacks, it would beharged as a hate crime)
And, need to start standing up to the White Guilt Liberals in BOTH parties who refuse to address, even condone, this Black Racist violence.
I see in my own county the lynching they are trying to do to George Zimmerman for defending himself against a Black thug who was beating him...and how our GOP governor and AG supported the Black Racist witch hunt. We have to start voting these people out
“Looks like we will have to pressure our local and state politicians to take this Black racist violence for real”
That’s not a solution because the majority of our local voters look like the ones who committed the murder as do not coincidentally most of the elected officials.
The Zimmerman case is more complicated than that.
He never should have played cop.
He certainly never should have got out of his SUV.
Think about it.
You are walking down the street. A black SUB with dark tinted windows is stalking you. Suddenly a guy gets out of the SUV. What would you think? You would think bad things are about to happen. And they did.
I think it was a case of two dumb asses meeting in the dark.
Both made serious mistakes. Martin thought Zimmerman was a thug, Zimmerman thought Martin was a thug. None of which would have been if Zimmerman had not been playing cop.
There was at least one other thread on this subject last night that seems to have been removed.
Interesting. I was sure I posted it last night right before turning in, then checked this morning and could not find any evidence that I had posted it. I wonder why it would be removed?
We are in the era of the “New World Order” this is the reality of our country, don’t fool yourself, this is only going to get worse. Its going to be “kill or be killed” soon.
Sounds about right to me, but it won’t satisfy the partisans of either team, I’m afraid.
Unfortunately, it seems like 2nd Amendment preparation is increasingly mandatory in order to exercise the 1st. Damn shame.
A comment on the radio today asserted Obama’s policies and economy have set Black Americans back an economic generation. The racist zeal that’s also discharged by the Marxists, and the cooperative minions in the media, isn’t helping Blacks much either.
BTW, this stench of hatred, racism, and distrust is the work of the Left.
Move if you can. Prepare for hell if you can't.
Don't live on fault lines, or among unstable mixed populationss.
How do you know what martin thought? Zimmerman was doing his job as a neighborhood watch volunteer. Martin would still be alive if he had not violently attacked Zimmerman.
Neighborhood watch does not require personal confrontation.
I repeat: Zimmerman should never have got out of his SUV. Martin could not have laid a hand on him had he not got out.
I repeat: Two dumb asses met in the dark.
White Girl Bleed a Lot
The Zimmerman case is more complicated than that.
He never should have played cop.
He certainly never should have got out of his SUV.
Think about it.
Well you obviously haven’t thought about it very much. Just how many people do you go and beat up because they were watching you. There is a sign at the entrance to the community that says that you will be watched and may be asked what your business is in this complex.
Martin was in a fight club. He was a burgular with stolen merchandise that he was caught with. He beat people up for fun. He was high on Marijuana and who knows what else.
Zimmerman was doing his responsible civic duty after all the burglaries they have had in his community.
Zimmerman did NOTHING WRONG and Travon Martin was a thug wannabe. Martin got what he asked for. I wish more people were as responsible as Zimmerman watching out for burglars, perhaps there would be less of this awful crime.
One thing for sure, Martin won’t be beating up anybody else or burglarizing anybody else’s home.
Good riddance to filthy rubbish.
is there any website that is keeping an accurate count of the Black on White murders nationwide?
Overdose of logic. What you say is true, but you’ll still get flamed for it. Outside the accepted script. Anyways, I know for a fact if I am minding my business and I notice a car following me, at night, and then the chap gets out to come and ask me questions that guy would be walking up to a gun pointed at him. I wouldn’t take the chance to find out if he wants to ask what time it is, ask for directions, ask what I am doing there, or mug me. I’d tell him to back off, and if he didn’t ...well, he should.
We have, you don’t see much of this in Texas do you?
When nobama is shown the WhiteyHut door, there’ll be lots of opportunites, so much no one will be keeping track.
You couldn't be more wrong. Martin was high as a kite. Zimmerman did nothing wrong or against the law - before or after shooting Martin.
The fact that Martin was a bad guy is not the question.
The question is whether Zimmerman by his behavior caused Martin to think that he was about to be mugged or worse.
A SUV stalking him, guy gets out moving aggressively towards him.....Martin is a street guy who sees all the signs of a beat down so he goes on the offensive.
Zimmerman is not a hero. He is a guy who did a very dumb thing.
Had he stayed in the vehicle and waited for the cops none of this would have happened.
Most states make it clear that to claim self defense you must not have instigated the violence.
So the question in court will be whether Zimmerman by his behavior caused Martin to feel threatened.
And yet it only gets reported nationally if it's white on black crime.
Got that covered nicely. Many people in their desire to be PC, or in pretending to take the “high road”, won’t acknowledge that cube until their deaths.
stand and be a victim...
You are making this up.
You have absolutely no way of knowing whether this happened.
Two people were there, one is dead, and the other described it differently.
“Id tell him to back off, and if he didnt ...well, he should.”
If you’re stupid enough to point a gun at someone in such a case you’d be in jail. Pointing guns at strangers isn’t macho. If you’d do that to me I’d smoke you so fast you wouldn’t see it coming. Think about that.
Certainly you can tell them to slow down.
YELL AT THEM.
And get the consequences.
Under NC law, and it is similar in most states, precipitating a confrontation removes the right to claim self defense.
Zimmerman was out of the SUV.
Why did he get out?
What do you think he did when he got out?
Walk the other way?
Frankly I think the hanging judge is being too hard on Zimmerman. I believe he merits a lower bail and was abused by keeping him in jail for so long without bond.
But that said, he still did a stupid thing.
How many times have we preached [posted ] that on this forum. To wit: If you live in a mixed or unstable neighborhood— Move. If you only get to take the clothes on your back and your life, that is more than you will have if you choose to stay. Because when it goes, it is going quick and it is going violent.
Assumes facts not in evidence. Assumes “whitey” (or more accurately Hispanics) must cower in fear and restrict their own movements when a thug is about.
In short, your post would fit well on DU.
I’d expect better than that from you (recognize your nic).
That’s a fact!
You have the evidence?
Why did Zimmerman get out of his SUV?
Did he take one step towards Martin? Or more than one?
Since you have the facts, tell us what Martin thought when he saw this SUV stalking him. Did he have any fear?
What did he think when the guy got out of the SUV?
By the way, Wendy, the subject of this thread is a good example of what can happen when a vehicle stops and a guy jumps out of it. Martin because he was a street person, knew that.
No, I don’t know exactly what happened but I am pointing out that it is a lot more complicated than most people think and if the truth is ever to be known, all of these avenues will have to be explored. To simply say that Martin was a thug, which I don’t doubt, and that Zimmerman is a hero, which I do doubt, is being overly simplistic.
Remember that regardless of who is the hero and who is the villain, the law must be followed. You can shoot someone, no matter how wicked he is, only under certain clearly defined circumstances.
Mobile,Alabama police are on the lookout for a dark gray or green Honda Civic or Altima with dark, tinted windows, involved in the deadly shooting of 40 year old Wendy Fisher.
There were 3 or 4 young black males in the car that stopped when confronted by Fisher in broad daylight last Saturday, for speeding by her house on Racine Street and almost hitting her dog. Fisher likely never saw the face of her killer, who cracked open a door and shot her in the chest approximately five times.
Ms. Fisher remained conscious but in shock as a witness waited with her for an ambulance to arrive. She was transported to USA Medical Center where she died from her injuries. Witnesses say Ms. Fisher reacted to the car almost hitting her dog, and the car stopped and there may have been an argument and then she was shot. Since the killing was likely not planned, the other individuals in the car would probably not face any charges if they came forward to police before police locate them. However, if they do not report to the police they could be charged as accomplices to first-degree murder, which carries a penalty of life in prison or the death penalty.
It is very possible the other passengers -and the driver- if he is not the shooter - were as surprised and anyone when the shooter opened fire. It is doubtful the suspects will elude police who will be able to run queries on all sedans in the area, then narrow down the search and car ownership records based on more detailed information provided by witnesses.
It is a process of elimination that could take several weeks but arrests are probable in the near future. Ms. Fishers’s murder was the second one along Racine Street in about a week. Another person was killed by a driver as he walked along the side of the street. The neighborhood is known to have a problem with speeders who use it as a short-cut to other locations. Ms. Fisher was a mother of two children, whom she contantly bragged about at her workplace,
The Haberdasher in downtown Mobile.
Methinks you should watch a little less MSNBC. You know zip zero about the Zimmerman case
You successfully point out that the facts (including some you assumed up-thread) are unknow.
As to use of deadly force being legal in only certain cases? The only phyisical evidence matches Zimmerman’s story that he was getting his head bashed in. Unless facts - not supposition- show he started the physical confrontation, that’s one of those cases. Even if he was verbally threatening or abusive. To wit: you are not allowed to bash someone’s head in for being mean.
The shooting happened in the light of day, around 6:30 pm on Saturday.
Fisher was shot in her chest. She later died at the hospital.
Police have told WKRG they are looking for three or four black men who were riding in a dark green or grey sedan.
Somebody who is closely related to the person that shot her knows what happen, said Cpl. Chris Levy, spokesperson for the Mobile Police Department. Hopefully they’ll come forward and tell us what happened.
A candlelight vigil will be held tomorrow night at 7:30 in Cathedral Square (Dauphin/Clairborne). Organizers are asking everyone to bring their own candle.
Fisher’s funeral will be Friday at 11:00 a.m. at Connect Church in Daphne.
Cute one liners do not add anything to the pool of knowledge.
Do us the courtesy of informing us of what you know.
How about some links to the NC or FL statutes or criminal code articles dealing with “precipitating a confrontation” in these cases? I mean, you *have* actually looked this stuff up, so the info should be close at hand... right?
Yeah, blame the victim. Gee, maybe Zimmerman shouldn't have gotten out of bed that morning.
Even if he was verbally threatening or abusive. To wit: you are not allowed to bash someones head in for being mean.
That is correct.
But if you have reason to fear for your life you can strike the first blow.
My point again is that here was a black kid, a street kid, being stalked by a vehicle. Dark night, all alone on the street.
You don’t think he was scared?
He was a street kid expecting a beat down.
Martin was a thug.
Zimmerman was stupid.
What utter crap. Please stop repeating yourself. Zimmerman was doing his jobdefending civilization. It's in fact every man's job. Martin was a criminal, acting like a criminal, as Zimmerman's contemporaneous comments to the 9-11 operator indicate. Zimmerman told the operator he was trying to see where Martin was going, and I don't see any reason to disbelieve him.
Trying to talk yourself (and everyone else) into the idea that everything will be all right if only we don't rile the jackals is inaccurate as well as cowardly. Property crime and violence are both crimes of opportunity: Give thugs an inch, and they just take another mile of territory.
Confronting evil in a dangerous neighborhood is an honorable and appropriate thing to do. Sometimes you have to fight, and sometimes the thug will die. (And sometimes the good guy will.) You have to face the fact that our times really are difficult. Zimmerman was acting on your behalf. We can't afford to take your attitude if we want to get the chaos under control and reclaim our country, where the innocent have rights, rather than the feral half-men who prey on the poorwhite, black, and "white Hispanic."
Save it. Martin was high on purple drank, the neighborhood watch had been successful for a long time, Zimmerman had every right to look at someone, Zimmerman broke off when it was suggested - not ordered- by the dispatcher, and then there are phone records indicating both Zimmerman and Martin separated at that point, but that Zimmerman was afraid to tell the dispatcher his address, because he couldn't find Simmerman and thought he might be being stalked.
Then, on his own, Martin circled back around, declared his intent to kill Zimmerman, and attacked him in a way that could easily have killed him.
Martin was a punk who got exactly what he deserved for attacking Zimmerman, unprovoked, with intent to kill, while high on drugs.
And you can take your violent, racist idea that people need to avert their eyes from black people or they deserve to be attacked, and shove it.
I hope that was clear.
It’s going to spread, time to be prepared for anything and everything.
Should be : “because he couldn’t find MARTIN and thought he might be being stalked.”

By the way, if you don’t think FL law takes the same view, explain why Zimmerman is under arrest.
Ive been following this incident pretty closely. Z wanted to be able to give a location to the police. He called the 911 dispatcher, who asked if Z were following Trayvon and then told him that we dont need you to do that. At which point Z answered saying OK. The altercation took place on the sidewalk where Zs head was repeatedly slammed into the concrete, suggesting that Z was no longer on the lawn but was on his way back to his truck. Looks like Trayvon approached Z from the rear.

Or maybe more appropriately, OH NO.
Not another Captain Courageous who will put on his magic cape at a moment’s notice and save us.
I CC and I will take no crap but at the same time those who carry and who do not understand that there is a right way and a thousand wrong ways are destined to spend a lot of time in the same predicament as Zimmerman is in.
Plus you make the rest of us look like crazy gun slingers.
Even retired cops will tell you that they will be a good witness and call the cops.
“explain why Zimmerman is under arrest.”
Explain why the initial Prosecutor let Zimmerman go.
Then explain what the political reasoning would be for a GOP Governor to appoint another Prosecutor in an election year.
I saw your post — I’m guessing an admin was being PC.
Yes, but he was out of his vehicle.
Confronting the guy was not smart.
By the way, I have done all of these things including confronting people on their own front porch.
And not very politely, to say the least.
Very bad technique.
But with age comes more wisdom.
I was lucky.
Learn from the foolishness of others.
That is exactly why if you CC you have to be very careful.
Until you go through a trial and spend $25,000 to $250,000, the law is whatever the prosecuting attorney in that county says it is.
There are literally hundreds of Nyfongs.
