Eighteen years ago today, Trayvon Benjamin Martin was born to Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. Nearly a year ago, their son was killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., who viewed Trayvon as “a real suspicious guy.” Instead, the unarmed teenager was found with a bag of Skittles and an iced tea from 7-Eleven and a bullet hole in his chest from Zimmerman’s Kel-Tec 9 mm PF-9. Zimmerman now awaits trial for second-degree murder. A trial that his attorney is trying to delay. But he will have his day in court.
Comments: No hate for Trayvon, but for a media that continues to portray him as an angelic 12-year-old instead of who he actually was on that tragic night.
The hate isn´t aimed at him. It is aimed at the culture that teaches kids like Trayvon that there are no consequences for thuggish behavior. It is also aimed at a media that wants to make everything about race, when the reality is that almost nothing is about race.
And the W-P continues to use the ´innocent looking little boy´ photo. Nice touch. The request for a delay in the trial of zimmerman is related to the fact that the obese nifong-like angela corey is not providing evidence, as required by discovery rules. Zimmerman´s attorneys have a right to all evidence available to the prosecution, prior to going to trial. And it takes time to verify the evidence.
Liberals classify anything that resists their agenda as "hate". You can´t just disagree with a liberal, you must hate them. Notice not "hate their agenda but hate them personally. It´s vastly over the top hyperbole but they are going for the emotional win so they make insane claims to reach their goals. The compliant MSM echoes the sentiment and it become propaganda.
The evidence shows that Trevon Martin was a stranger walking in an area that had problems with break-ins. He was noticed by Zimmerman, a resident, and reported to police. Somehow, a confrontation ensued. Apparently, Martin was angry enough to begin pummeling Zimmerman severely. Zimmerman lacked any wounds showing he was aggressive (scraped knuckles) and Martin showed little damage from the altercation besides the gun wound. Zimmerman, in fear of his life from an aggressive assailant, shot him in self defense.
There is evidence missing to completely support this narrative but none to contradict it.
Liberals don´t want this to become yet another over reaction story and a re desperately spinning it but it was a vast over reaction to a tragic situation.
Hate Trevon Martin? We barely know who he is. He was clearly angry in this confrontation. If he had controlled his temper the outcome would have been very different. The police would have arrived sorted it all out and everyone would have gone on their way. Too bad he didn´t control his temper.
Every lie-beral argument is based on falsified and fake ´´evidence´´ that the media released that was all proven to be false. Yet, because the MSM reported it, they still believe it it all true and base their opinions on that fake information.
Even though Zimmerman was a Hispanic man, he is going to be sacrificed in the court of PC as ´´an evil white man who was hunting for some young black hide´´.
Meanwhile, in Chicago, how many black males have shot and killed other black males with clear and intentional intent to murder them since Zimmerman defended his life from this thug???
There is no rabid hate for Trayvon, but the media wants to portray this kid as a saint. He was caught at school with a bag full of jewelry, with a flat head screw driver in the bag. The evidence suggests he might have stolen the jewelry. He was suspended from school five times in three months. He is loitering in a neighborhood that has high crime. Evidence shows that Zimmerman had given up the chase and was getting in his car to go when Trayvon wanted a fight. So the kid is dead; he should have just walked away, but his kind always wants to prove a point. And his mother wants to get rich using Trayvon´s incident.
Besides the media-driven images of an angelic little 11-year old riding ponies, other reports emerged describing Martin in his teens who was increasingly adversarial and had a history of sucker punching complete strangers.
That M.O. of Martin explains a lot of what Zimmerman may have encountered that rainy night.
BTW, Martin innocently buying skittles and Arizona iced tea prior to the incident may be only part of the story. Those are key ingredients to a fad hip-hop urban concoction known as ´purple drank´, ´sizzrup´ or ´lean´. Mixed with cough syrup containing promethazine or codeine makes a highly addictive depressant.
Capeheart can´t get it through his programmed head that this is not about hating Trayvon Martin.
He needs to take a good long look at ambulance-chasing lawyer Crump who turned this case into a public relations campaign, with Ryan Julison and the help of ABC newser Matt Guttman, on the way to another big fat personal injury check for the Martin family and a nice big fat check to Crump and his law firm.
Capeheart is looking in the wrong places. But that´s what Capeheart does.
The reason for his emergence with this story is that there is a hearing in the case today.
Capehart, he wasn´t shot because he was ´a real suspicious guy.´ He was shot because he was trying to split Zimmerman´s head open on the sidewalk. You can try and live in a magical world where bad ´journalists´ create reality, but in the real world punk ´gangstas´ who attack armed people sometimes get shot. Figure it out you propagandist.
Sears stock plummeted Wednesday as news came out that Edward Lampert, its stubborn billionaire chairman and CEO, had to surrender majority control of the 120-year-old big box retailer when investors in Lampert’s hedge fund pulled money out. With no end in sight for Lampert’s quixotic turnaround efforts, it’s time to question whether there’s any way to save Sears as long as he remains in charge. (Snip) Lampert began at Sears with the ill-fated $12 billion merger with Kmart in 2005. Sales have declined for 27 straight quarters and the company’s stock is down over 70% from its high in 2007.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The
Around 100,000 Americans successfully signed up for health insurance in November through the troubled federal online marketplace, HealthCare.gov, a person familiar with the preliminary data confirmed to ABC News. The figure reflects a surge in enrollment as software and hardware fixes to the site were made over the course of the month. In October, only 26,000 people could successfully enroll in Obamacare plans, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. "We´ve been working 24/7 to make improvements, and more consumers are successfully shopping online and enrolling in a health plan each week," Health and Human Services Secretary
NEW HAVEN >> The jail cell death last weekend of Yale University professor Samuel See, known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia, has shaken up the tight-knit college community. Now adding to the mystery of his unexpected death are apparent connections between the online profiles of See and several escort service websites that include a cache of sexually explicit photos. At least four websites advertising male escort services included a phone number connected to See. The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September.
For many Ann Arborites, Thanksgiving is a day devoted to giving thanks, spending time with family, eating turkey and watching the Detroit Lions. This year, retail giants want that to change. (Snip) The early openings change the game for retail giants looking to boost profits through aggressive holiday sales. It also means millions of retail employees in the U.S. are working on the holiday, and it poses the question to consumers: Is a bargain on a 70-inch television or an Apple iPad worth ditching Thanksgiving dinner? “You couldn’t pay me to stand in a line in the cold on Thanksgiving
Macy´s Inc and a slew of other U.S. retailers are opening on Thanksgiving for the first time ever in a bare-knuckled brawl for a bigger slice of overall holiday sales. But it might not be so easy to lure most Americans from their turkey and football - particularly if the weather is foul. Department store rivals Kohl´s Corp and J.C. Penney Co Inc led a string of Thanksgiving opening announcements after Macy´s said it would open its U.S. stores on the popular holiday, ending a 155-year tradition. Sales trends, survey results and an online "Save Thanksgiving" backlash suggest that shoppers
The captain of a Greenpeace ship released on bail after two months of detention in a Russian prison following an Arctic protest said he and his fellow activists remain in shock at their treatment. American Peter Willcox, who was also in charge of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior when it was sunk in Auckland in 1985 by a bomb planted by the French intelligence service, said the organization again found itself in the crosshairs of a government bent on throttling the environmental group. “There is a similarity between the two cases,” with both the French and Russian governments targeting Greenpeace to prevent
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
