Trayvon’s mother: Stand Your Ground
helped Zimmerman get away
with murder

Miami Herald, by Marc Caputo

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/29/2013 10:29:36 PM

The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get

Where are the investigative journalists looking into Sybrina Fulton´s and Daddy Martin´s past and personal lives. Put the claimed integrity to the Investigative Journalism test. F.O.I.A. the Divorce records from the court house. Expose these Shysters!!

No Ma´am, your inability to parent your son is what got him into the situation. Your inability to teach him right from wrong, your unwillingness to focus on grooming him to be a responsible adult is what turned him into the gang banging thug he was. Between your lack of parenting skills and his biological father´s lack of caring how his son turned out is what killed your son. Experience in dealing with young men and women like your son, his main strike against him...neither parent cared enough.

The article is poorly written (it is the Miami Herald after all) that it is impossible to really understand what went on. But one would hope that at least one lawyer understood that the Stand Your Ground statute was not used in this case. Perhaps I hope too much. And I am a lawyer.

When Trayvon sucker punched George Zimmerman to the ground then mounted him and began raining punches down on his face, "Stand Your Ground" no longer applied, since a beating victim will have a difficult time standing his ground when he´s already being pinned down and pummelled. Martin thought he had a made to order, possibly gay, victim, but never figured the guy had a gun. Bad decision. Fatal decision. The thug took a round through the heart. Fight over. T.S.

Let´s see if I have this right Ms. Fulton. The rest of us must accept any beating such as was being dished out by your thuggish son to George Zimmerman, by any other punk we might confront. Might I suggest you walk the streets of Chicago at, say, 1 AM and see if you really want to give up your right to self defense. I certainly do not and should we ever cross paths, I will certainly make you understand such. Had you not raised a "typical" black youth of today, perhaps yours like so many thousands of others would be alive today. Want to know who is REALLY responsible for your son´s death. You and his father stand in front of a mirror and take a good look.

She raised a son dumb enough to bring his fists to a gun fight. Trayvon thought he had an easy victim to suckerpunch, and it didn´t work out.

She is on bam´s (re-embursed, (but not directly with money)) staff whose mission is to gut the 2nd Amendment. SYG was never a part of this incident/case. bam and his thugs are just keeping the fire stoked long enough to get traction when another shooting takes place (except if that shooting occurs in chi-thug town). its all about getting the "folks" spun up again.

To Trayvon´s Mom: Take the million dollar settlement from Zimmerman´s homeowners association and just go away.

Your thuggish son would have been killed or sent to prison if Zimmerman had not done the work for you, it would have been someone else.

Your act might work with Shake Down artists like Sharpton and Jackson, but normal people see the truth.

PS you should have had a government paid for abortion when you had the chance unless by not having one, it would increase your welfare benefits.

Truth hurts.

TM was a thug who tried to murder a man. He died because his intended victim protected himself. TM was no hero. The State of Florida is not to blame.

Three people are to blame: (1) the thug who attacked an innocent man, (2) TM´s father who was an absentee father, and (3) the mother who is blaming everyone but herself.

It is amazing that George had enough restraint to pop Martin only once. Many would have emptied the magazine. Too bad the man attacked by 10 punks who looked like Zero in "Charm City" or once referred to as "the city that reads" better known as Balmor didn´t have a S&W M&P 9mm with a 17 shot magazine. He may have been able to save himself. This guy was attacked within a few blocks of the touristy inner harbor and Little Italy. Where is the Mafia when you need it? Of course being attacked by 10 thugs is not a life threatening situation. Baltimore a once great city destined to follow Detroit. See Anything in common here?

The flip side of her argument is that without a ´stand your ground law´, it could have ended up with Martin being tried for murder. After all, how many times can the average human being last while having their skull bashed against a concrete sidewalk?

Her guilt fled into the shadows when she decided to sell hoodies over Trayvon´s grave
It slid under the door when she collected from the innocent HMO payers.
It never appeared when she left him for someone else to try to raise.
What could have or should have been was lost before his journey began.
Based on that --yes -- we can feel sorrow for a life lost before it could be found.
. What we cannot do is overlook careless parenting that leads to destruction of any life.
Take your guilt up mom and seek your own salvation because you destroy only yourself on this false pathway .

Back in 1983, Sybrina Fulton´s cousin was sent to jail for murder, after he shot a man. He appealed his very long sentence claiming Florida´s "Stand Ground Law."

He lost, apparently because he shot the guy four times. It wasn´t the first time he shot someone, either.

Stand Your Ground saved George Zimmerman´s life and from being beaten to death by a thug. The path young Trayvon was on would have led to his being taken out by the cops or another bla ck punk sooner or later.

It is my understanding that Trayvon hadn´t lived with his mother in quite some time. He had been living with his step mother (Tracy Martin´s second ex-wife) and she sent him to live with an aunt. The aunt kicked him out after his last suspension and put him on a bus to live with his dad and his dad´s girlfriend (who would be Tracy Martin´s 4th or 5th "baby momma").

It is also my understanding that Tracy Martin never called the police about his missing son nor did anything else until contacted by the police more than 24 hours after the incident.

If any of this is in error, please correct me.

Zimmerman was attacked, Zimmerman had the RIGHT to self-defense. Simple..even Trayvon´s mother should be able to understand that.
SYG had nothing to do with this case. period.
SYG did not kill Trayvon. The lofos are being played for the fools they are.

Russia Tests Obama´s Ability

Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article

Washington -- With the White House asserting that Russia is stoking instability in eastern Ukraine, President Barack Obama is once again faced with the complicated reality of following through on his tough warnings against overseas provocations. Obama has vowed repeatedly to enact biting sanctions against Russia´s vital economic sectors if the Kremlin tries to replicate its actions in Crimea, the peninsula it annexed from Ukraine, elsewhere in the former Soviet republic. Despite those warnings, Russian President Vladimir Putin appears to be testing Obama´s limits, instigating protests in eastern Ukraine, the White House says, and massing tens of thousands of troops on

By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second-most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out. Medical students opt for high-paying specialties so they can retire as quickly as possible. Physician MBA programs—that promise doctors a way into management—are flourishing. The

Federal officials appear to be waiting out Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters. Two days after a dispute over grazing rights, cattle and $1 million in fees and fines threatened to spin into a Wild West shootout, officials with the Bureau of Land Management promised they weren’t finished with Bundy. “The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said in a statement that followed the Bureau’s decision to release nearly 400 head of Bundy’s cattle that had been seized as part of a fight over grazing fees. Spokesman Craig Leff declined to be

Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors. But an American rancher grazing his cattle brings feds with sniper rifles. It appears Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has, at least temporarily, wonhis "range war" with the paramilitary wing of the Bureau of Land Management. Fearing another Waco, BLM has announced it will no longer enforce a court order and stop stealing Bundy´s cows, called "trespass cattle" by the feds, accused of grazing free on part of the 84% of Nevada that is federal property.

The SS-27 Mod 2 road-mobile ICBM was launched around 2:40 a.m. EST from Russia’s Plesetsk launch facility, located about 500 miles north of Moscow. “The main purpose of the launch is to validate the reliability of a batch of this class of missiles made at the Votkinsk Plant,” Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov told state-run Interfax-AVN.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

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)

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. 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

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
