Good Article on the Zimmerman Shooting

Just found this one talking about society’s rush to judgement of George Zimmerman.

He also notes the same thing I do, that Zimmerman is never heard running (despite claiming Martin ran off), also I was listening to the linked audio to see if anything was different (it isn’t its the same tape as the one I’ve linked to before), but Zimmerman expresses reservation of giving his home address to dispatch because he has lost site of Martin and doesn’t know if he’s in earshot. Hard to pursue somebody you’ve lost sight of.

Scroll to the bottom you’ll see the recent work photo of Zimmerman, but also a photo was what is likely a recent picture of Martin. He appears to have his front teeth done in gold. That could be an applique, or it could be real. It could be a look he just liked, or it could be a sign that he was getting into the “Thug Culture” which is a cancer to the Blacks in America.

I hope you all don’t mind me spending as much time on this issue as I have. I’m just amazed at how WRONG the media has gotten this story, and how dishonestly they’ve been portraying it.

I’ve gone 180 degrees from thinking Zimmerman attempted to arrest martin as an over-zealous “Mall Ninja” to seeing him as a man who was doing a great service to his community of taking the risk of being private security, and possibly spend the rest of his life looking over his shoulders for the Lynch Mobs who have convicted him of Murder without knowing any of the facts.

    That looks more like glare from the lighting or the flash than gold, I think.

    Amazing how up to date pictures can change who looks like the victim and who doesn’t.

    Did you see that Zimmerman got kicked out of college?

    • Weerd Beard says:

      There are a few other shots too. The teeth are gold in them too, and in the same pattern, which says they were either taken in a short time frame or it it is legit gold grill-work.

    Interesting how different those pictures are from what most of the MSM is feeding us, isn’t it? Martin still looks a bit skinny (though it’s hard to tell, since he’s so close to the camera that the fisheye effect common to short focal-length cameras like webcams is distorting his image) but much more his age at the time of the shooting, and Zimmerman looks both much less mall-ninja/redneck like and much more obviously of hispanic descent. It’s almost like the media has been deliberately trying to manipulate people’s perceptions, isn’t it?

    • Weerd Beard says:

      I suspect the media is right about Martin being a bean-pole. The ranges I’ve read are 6’04” 140lbs from the media, and 6’00” and 160 from the arrest report of Zimmerman (which is obviously an estimation made of a dead body lying on the ground) He was certainly not a giant, but he’s also not that grinning 5’00” kid in the pictures.

    The suspension came from Trayvon having an empty baggy that contained marijuana.

    There is also this though –

    ps – I don’t know twitter. If you change your handle/screen name does it change it in all previous exchanges?

      “Trayvon having an empty baggy that . . .” was, ya know; empty. It allegedly at some point had contained marijuana. As have more than half the people I know. I know a lot of sweet little grandmothers. It ain’t my thing, but I don’t hold it against anyone. Not even punks who got what they otherwise deserve.

      I’ve also known some people actually arrested for possession of a baggy that contained marijuana that, well, didn’t.

      On the flip side I’ve known sweet, harmless people who’ve been charged with resisting arrest who never. In fact who were shown to have been charged with resisting specifically because they weren’t resisting. For some cops that’s just their way of saying, “Yo momma!”

      All of this superfluous nonsense. Stuff that’s being talked about because the relevant stuff is the stuff that’s unknown.

      • Weerd Beard says:

        I have a cousin who got nabbed for possession when he was about 14. He’s now in his 20s and entering the prison system because he’s touched everything but the 3rd rail and done all the 1990s Afternoon special crimes related to drug addiction from fatal car wrecks, to B&E to steal things for drug money. I’m an “End the War on Drugs Today” sort of guy, but I’m also aware at how quickly things can flip. I’m not saying Martin was twisted on drugs when he fought with Mr. Zimmerman, I will say its a possibility.

      • Rob Crawford says:

        It’s the stolen property and “burglary tool” that seems more relevant to me.

  4. Lissa says:

    Weer’d, I came out of blog hibernation to post about this (Sanford is literally down the road from the Raj Mahal). I’ll have to catch up on your thoughts re: the subject.

  5. Serious Gun says:

    My guess is that as more facts emerge Martin will begin to take on an altogether different biography. I read somewhere he bragged about being “made”, nomenclature used by gang members.

  6. Greg Camp says:

    This case is a good illustration of how important histrionics are to the popular media. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, make something up. But as time goes by, Zimmerman continues to look the same, while Martin looks worse and worse.

  7. SGB says:

    Get ready for the riots.

  8. Old NFO says:

    It just gets more and more interesting…

  9. Wade says:

    I can almost trace my changing attitude about the case to the emergence of Jackson and Sharpton on the anti-Zimmerman side. Those two whores can almost be guaranteed to be on the wrong side of any issue.

    Also, the more I think about the case, the more satisfied I am that Zimmerman acted in self-defense. Urban police are generally not inclined to avoid arresting people where they know that their actions might be looked upon as prejudiced. The police must have had some pretty substantial reasons for not arresting.

  10. Liquidmark says:

    So, you want to justify the kid’s killing based solely on “ooh scary looking black boy” syndrome or because you think he looks like a thug?

    the only real things that are important here are:

    1) Was Trayvon doing what he had a legal right to do at the moment that Zimmerman decided to step out of his vehicle and confront him.
    2) What could have been done to AVOID confrontation and AVOID injury or loss of life for as many people as possible.

    Trayvon was walking down the street while minding his own business. No matter how you swing that, he had a legal right to do it.

    Zimmerman saw him and because of his own world view, he thought someone walking down the street was suspicious. So he called the police. He had a legal right to do that.

    Then, Trayvon notices that Zimmerman was eyeballing him and he decided to retreat, which is his legal right to do, not his obligation.

    Zimmerman decided to STEP OUT OF HIS CAR and chase Trayvon. He had already called the police and he had no legal right to confront or detain anyone.

    I know you seem to think he is “being private security”, but he does not have any authority, nor did anyone ask him to be private security. He was neighborhood watch. What neighborhood watch does is WATCH the neighborhood! It isn’t called Neighborhood CONFRONT or Neighborhood TAKE THE LAW INTO YOUR OWN HANDS.

    As a result, an unarmed person that was not committing a crime, has been killed by an overzealous ‘mall ninja’. Keep that in mind, this was an unarmed person that was NOT in the commission of committing a crime that died as a result or Zimmerman’s actions. Everything that happened after Zimmerman got out of his car, rests entirely on his shoulders at that point.

    Talking about Trayvon getting suspended from school, stupid stuff said on Twitter or whether or not he had gold teeth is just piddily garbage. None of those things are crimes and even if they were, Zimmerman had no way of knowing. Claiming that those things justify Tayvon’s death is the same as saying that it is OK to shoot ANYONE on sight because he did something bad in the past. It doesn’t matter whether or not he is doing anything bad right now, he did something bad in the past so it is ok to confront and possibly kill him.

    Humanity has not disgusted me so much until I saw how many people do mental loop-da-loops to defend a man that went way too far by confronting and killing an unarmed minor that wasn’t doing anything wrong.

    Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to go check my mail.

      You might want to actually read the reports instead of being spoonfed your narrative by the main stream media.

      Trayvon Martin was walking down a street but one where he was a stranger. Zimmerman noted (listen to the actual tapes) several behaviors (wandering around, looking at houses, etc) that made him think that Martin was casing houses.
      Given Martin’s past it seems that may not have been an inaccurate assumption — unless you happen to believe his story about a friend giving him jewelery and a screw driver.

      Zimmerman also reported that Martin didn’t take off first but that Martin approached his car and then walked away. Again, actions that could be interpreted as suspicious.

      You also don’t know the law; Zimmerman does have legal authority to confront anyone in the area. Everyone does.

      As far as your assertion that everything is Zimmerman’s fault because he got out of his car — BUNK ! UTTER RUBBISH.

      All the evidence currently looks like Martin attacked Zimmerman as Zimmerman was walking back to his car. Not as he detained Martin but as he was retreating.
      If Martin was so afraid of someone following him, why didn’t he continue to the house he was staying at? It was only 70 yards further. Kinda hard to say that he was so afraid he took off running but wasn’t afraid to keep running another 200 feet, isn’t it?

      Martin’s past is as relevant as Zimmerman’s. Martin was shown by his twitter account to be follow of either bravado or violence. Either way it goes to establishing Martin’s mindset; his past words doesn’t read like someone who would back away from a fight.
