To What Lengths Did Someone Go
to Scapegoat George Zimmerman?

PJ Tatler, by Bryan Preston

The “new” photo of George Zimmerman raises some very disturbing issues. Take a look at the black and white version of the photo, which the Florida prosecutor gave to the defense as part of the discovery process shortly after his altercation with Trayvon Martin. (Snip for photo)Other than color, what else is missing from this photo? Can you tell how old George Zimmerman is? To me, he looks like he could be any age from 20 to more than 50. But the graininess and lack of visible hair on the top of his head suggest that he is an older man.

What "lengths"??

All you have to do is:
1. Be black.
2. Yell "racism".
3. Sit back and watch the MSM feeding frenzy.

It´s a farce to be sure but let us not forget that the current president was among the first to stick his oar in when he lacked any facts such as these.

Makes you wonder what other decisions he´s made in a vacuum. My guess: all of them.

Don´t forget that the FBI went around trying to find someone to say that Zimmerman was a racist. Why was the FBI even involved??? Who ordered it?

How many hundreds and hundreds of shootings take place in Chicago without the FBI being involved? Does anyone investigate?

It was the same person who only released the years old photos of the sweet, smiling Trayvon instead of the recent, tattooed and threatening Trayvon.

The difference in the two photographs is startling, but not nearly as different as the photos we were shown of Trayvon. It was weeks before I realized that Trayvon was more than 10 years old. The press KEPT showing pictures of a MUCH younger Trayvon. Kind of reminds you of the Benghazi reports doesn´t it.

We have a corrupt media and we need to start punishing that by NOT subscribing or watching. The advertisers will notice the lack of audience.

Many of Trayvon´s photos were photoshopped as well, particularly the one of him in the white hoodie. His skin tone was lightened and the complexion smoothed to give a more youthful innocence to it. His eyes wete changed, and the area around the face blackened, the white hoodie brightened immensely. The resulting image displayed to the public was of an angelic, almost haloed appearing innocent child, pure as the new snow.

You can google photoshopped Trayvon images for the comparisons.

Lest you forget the much touted MSNBC police Department intake video showing him going into the holding area intentionally blurred and altered then shown on air to declarations that there were no injuries afterall, and he was walking just fine.

Would this be the same media channel that just met at the WH with Obama last night for Tax Cliff talks?

Staterun media does what Obama says. Afterall, if he had a son....

I don´t know when it began, but the media has become sickening. I suspect it was at a slow brew during the Nixon administration. I remember being a young woman and back then had no interest in politics, but I wondered about the media frenzy. In the back of my mind I couldn´t see what was so earth shattering about what happened. What was I missing? I saw the media gloating over Nixon´s humiliation and resignation.

Today it is over. We as a unified country are over. We have reached the tipping point. I cannot express how sad and defeated I feel. Until an entire generation lives through liberalism and sees the utter destruction it wreaks, nothing will happen. The media is on their side and is working daily and diligently to affect change.

Those of us who have followed this sorry case from Day One, especially the incredible investigative work done by theconservativetreehouse.com, know that great lengths were gone to to scapegoat this young man.

The guilty parties include, but are not limited to, racist ambulance-chasing lawyer Benjamin Crump and his associates, Angela Corey, Jeff Weiner at the Orlando Sentinel, Matt Gutman of ABC News (and his brainless mouthpiece Diane Sawyer), PR type Ryan Julison, who worked diligently with attorney Crump, the Martin family, Matt Gutman, to project the negative image of George Zimmerman and create a public perception that he was some sort of white profiling vigilante who just had to be guilty of shooting this innocent young boy. Throw in the Sanford Police Department, who may still have been angry that Zimmerman went after them about their whitewashing the beating of a black homeless man by the white son of a senior member of the Sanford Police Department.

#17 cont´d:

The manipulation of photos has been a big part of the scapegoating campaign. It took weeks (months?) to finally see a relatively current photo of the young man Trayvon Martin, not the smiling little boy. We had to wait for court room to see that George Zimmerman was not a person in an orange jail jumpsuit (from a years earlier arrest for a minor offense that was dismissed), but a diligent young married man who worked for a living and tried to protect his wife and the community in which he lived. The video that came into the Martins´ hands and went straight to Diane Sawyer via Ryan Julison and then Matt Gutman, failed to show the wounds on Zimmerman´s head. And just to make sure, ABC ran its banner material over his head to obliterate any traces.

This has been a shameful episode. Zimmerman may never get his life back. It was stolen by irresponsible persons who didn´t give a rat´s patootie about civil rights, but were trying to make some big wrongful death suit bucks.

Hopefully he will get exoneration and his freedom.

Re #9, give it up.

The color photo was taken at the scene by either the police or the paramedics who treated George Zimmerman.

Those are the photos that are used as evidence and provided to BOTH the prosecution and the defense. Not grainy photos so processed that they tell their own erroneous story.

This is not a case to come tripping into blithely and make judgments based on thin air. There is too much evidence of scapegoating and manipulation for a reasonable person to ignore.

If the prosecution supplied the defense the BW photo when the original color was available that is gross misconduct and the judge should throw the case out. The citizens of Sanford Fl have more to fear from a DA which hides or manufactures evidence then from a armed neighborhood watch citizen who was attacked.

It dawned on me as I looked at the authentic picture..as this story first broke, the msm was scrounging for anything to help Obama win re-election.
As this came across the wires, press picked it up and I believe they at FIRST thought it was a Jewish man (Zimmerman) and WHITE WHITE WHITE ! They had to backtrack and so invented the "WHITE hispanic" label.
The msm wanted a race issue from the first.
Stupid Angela Corey played right into their hands. That court appearance with the 2 JAX investigators was a mess.

The Photoshopping of this photo together with the release of a photo of a young, innocent-looking Martin clearly demonstrates intent to frame Zimmerman. It´s doubtful that the police did it, and that leaves several other candidates. The parents would not want to blame their son for initiating an assult, and they would probably not have expertise nor the quick reaction to alter the evidense. Sharpton was around, and he or some aides probably alerted a news contact. Such contacts would have the necessary expertise and, being aligned with Sharpton, were probably selected for their motivation. That´s where inquiring minds should look.

Totally agree with #12. Advertisers are very sensitive to public opinion. Those commercials cost a lot of money. The media are manipulating people and we need to make them stop.

And #9 - an idiot can see that this photo was deliberately made to hide Zimmerman´s injuries and race.

For those who have an interest in this case (we all should)...

From an article today:

"Why Did George Zimmerman View Trayvon As ´suspicious´?"

This question has dogged the entire narrative from the very beginning. People threw around the term “profile” in a racial sense. However, as more and more FBI and State investigative witness testimony/statements are reviewed the answer looms obvious.

Trayvon Martin looked suspicious because he fit the same behavioral and descriptive outline of the prior criminals in the Retreat at Twin Lakes sub-division.

It certainly appears George Zimmerman became another well-known victim of Political Correctness and Cultural Marxism run amok, here’s why:

First, let’s look at who George Zimmerman saw on the night in question…."


Read more here:

http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2012/12/05/why-did-george-zimmerman-view-trayvon-as-suspicious/

This piece includes quoted statements from some of the witnesses who live in the Twin Lakes community - some black, some other minorities - who knew of the incidents involving young black males. It is interesting that the first quotes a black male as saying that Twin Lakes is more upscale economically and that hoodies and jeans are not standard attire there. The others talk about specific incidents.

They also talk about how helpful Zimmerman was.

Reuters did an investigation of Zimmerman last April. I never saw it. Did you?

In addition to giving his life history, it also went into his relationships in the community. He was a virtual hero in a community the increasingly felt it was under siege. By young black criminals.

Though civil rights demonstrators have argued Zimmerman should not have prejudged Martin, one black neighbor of the Zimmermans said recent history should be taken into account.

"Let´s talk about the elephant in the room. I´m black, OK?" the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. "There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood," she said. "That´s why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin."


Recommend this for reading by those who know little or nothing about this case. And some, like me, who never saw it.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/25/us-usa-florida-shooting-zimmerman-idUSBRE83O18H20120425

So compelling that even the biased Global Grind printed excerpts from it in an article about "a different portrait emerging" about George Zimmerman.

I haven´t been following this too closely - - just skimming the headlines and glancing at the photos.

From what I understand - - a little black choir boy was murdered by a white racist thug who was looking for trouble.

Is that about the size of it?

Let´s all stop picking on No. 9! I work with Photoshop a lot & if a person is inexperienced or in a hurry or working with older versions of the software - you could come up with a grainy scan. It is possible to NOT be an expert with editing software & come up with that image! My own two cents - I thought when I first heard Zimmerman´s name that he was Jewish. Years ago, I had a good friend who´s last name was Zimmer & he was Jewish. My second thought on seeing Martin´s very young photo was that our lib media was trying to make the case that a grown Jewish man shot a little black kid - now WHY would our media want to pit two groups against each other?

#9 is probably just playing devil´s advocate. But he is still way wrong. Anyway, don´t forget how they all made a BIG deal about Zimmerman´s lower bail and saying he "intentionally lied" about how much money he had available. That was also a set-up. It makes me sick that people are allowed to get away with destroying a person´s life simply for their own personal gain without any consequences. Corey should be disbarred and thrown in jail. She was using this to divert attention away from her incompetence in other cases. What surprised me is that Scott and Bondi BOTH played into this. I thought they would have a little more integrity....guess not.

Stalking should be illegal and Zimmerman was certainly stalking that boy, yet I´ve never seen that mentioned. He went looking for trouble and that frightened young man fought for his life. Unfortunately the perp and his gun won.

In no way does Zimmerman´s behavior equate to stalking.

Stalking implies a known victim being followed/harassed numerous times at numerous locations, making threatening phone calls, making repeated attempts to be alone with the victim.

A Neighborhood Watch volunteer, in a marked Neighborhood Watch area, noticed an unknown person behaving "suspiciously" and followed that person while he was walking off the sidewalk, near the apartment windows. He very well may have been "casing" apartments in a neighborhood that had experienced several break-ins in recent weeks, by young black males...and he fit that description.

That is not "stalking" that is doing the job of a Neighborhood Watch volunteer.

If you really think George Zimmerman was "stalking" Trayvon Martin, poster #37, I suggest that you never move to a neighborhood with Neighborhood Watch volunteers.

Yes, Zimmerman´s name and his reworked image made him appear to be Jewish and that was the plan. This story broke two months after the actual incident. Big setup. The good news is that it didn´t really work despite the msm´s best efforts.

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
