Is Trayvon really that innocent?

As someone who covers conservatives full time, there is little left for them to do or say that can actually shock me. But in the last few days they have managed to do it by impugning the late Trayvon Martin with misleading and dishonest attacks on his character and justifications for his murder. They’ve also eagerly played to racist whites by perversely accusing African-American politicians of trying to capitalize on Martin’s tragic murder merely because they’ve expressed appropriate concern over it.

For those who don’t know, Martin, 17, was walking to his father’s house in Sanford, Florida, when a local busybody named George Zimmerman called the police to report his unfounded suspicions that Martin was up to no good. Even though the dispatcher told Zimmerman to leave the matter to the police, who were on their way, Zimmerman followed Martin, got into a confrontation with him

  • Swung on a bus driver. Aw, just a sweet kid who got killed for no reason. That evil neighborhood watch guy obviously just wanted to steal his skittles.

    There's a reason the media only shows pictures of him from when he was 12. Because he's a street thug. He attacked the wrong guy this time, not an unarmed bus driver.

    • @dmorgan0628 Haw... No. I went through that phase when I was a kid. But, I grew out of it when I started thinking for myself. Statistically, most people will grow out of it when they grow up.

  • Zimmerman should not have pursued him, but if Trayvon did in fact attack him as described, he had every right to defend his life with deadly force. Like it or not. I do. Sad that a man died, but it sounds like that was going to happen either way. To make it a race issue and a cash cow is cowardly and disgraceful.

    • @tipsypyro tipsy - unfortunately for zimmerman, i dont think self-defense applies when you actively stalk and confront a person in a potentially threatening manner. self-defense is a legal concept intended to protect people attacked in their own home or while otherwise conducting themselves in a manner that presents no potential threat to others. zimmerman's terrible judgement in this case severely undermines that defense.

    • @assbastard0
      From information available so far it looks like Zimmerman lost sight of Martin & was returning to his car. Martin came up behind him & confronted Zimmerman, and assaulted Zimmerman. Where are you getting information that it was the other way around?

    • @Ruffus - uh huh. so if someone stalked you through the streets in a car, followed you when you ran away, then got out and confronted you, and then returned to their car, you wouldnt be worried at all for your physical safety ?

  • What I find funny about this Trayvon case is how there are double standards with blacks calling for people to hunt Zimmerman down:

    - Blacks calling for vigilante violence against a non-black = justice
    - non-blacks calling for vigilante violence against a black = lynching

  • After reading the tweet, it is obvious:

    * Public education has failed.
    * Blacks (including white people who want to act like them) are not part of the melting pot.
    * Multicultural education is a disservice to the human race.
    * Trayvon was no upstanding citizen of the Martin family or any geographic area.
    * Trayvon seems not only capable, but likely to be the kind of thug who would do what Zimmerman and the other witnesses said he did.

    The poster expends great effort to justify Martin's behavior and portray it as "normal". The fact is that his behavior is neither normal or acceptable. Normal high school kids don't get caught with drug "residue" or drug paraphernalia at school. Normal kids don't get expelled from school, and certainly not multiple times.

  • This is a BS piece and merely flows with the manufactured "outrage" generated by the media and professional race baiters.

    When it comes down to it, there was NO OTHER direct witness to what happened. The popular culture has done EVERYTHING to denigrate the character of Mr. Zimmerman, and to paint Martin as a saintly youth. Before they can do this, they have to explore the character of Martin, who had been suspended from school that day for possessing drug paraphernalia.

  • I blame his parents. They never married, and he had no proper enviroment to grow up in, with proper role models. Even when shot he was living with his father's girlfriend while suspended from school after being caught with stolen jewelry and a screwdriver used to break into homes while truant.
    He wasn't a little kid. He was 6'3", and the screams heard were Zimmerman as he was beaten violently and getting his head beat in on the sidewalk.

    • @dmorgan0628 The bottom line really is that CCW holders commit much less crime statistically, than the general population. On top of that the guy was in a neighborhood watch group, obviously trying to help people in a shitty crime infested community.

      The kid is obviously a violent thug, and it doesn't make sense to me for people to jump to the massively idiotic conclusion that the CCW holder just simply shot him because he doesn't like black people. That is a retarded assumption, IMO.

  • If it was just words then Zimmerman did not have a right to shoot. But when Martin gets on top of him and starts beating him as the eyewitness account confirms, then Zimmerman has the right to kill him in self defense. As anyone knows, you can kill a person with your fists.
