Calls made to police show that a black teenager was terrified as he tried to get away from the white neighborhood watch volunteer who shot him, and that the volunteer was not defending himself as he has claimed, the teen’s family told The Associated Press on Saturday.
Sanford police released eight 911 calls late Friday. The neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, tells a dispatcher in the first call that he is following 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. He says Martin is running, but the dispatcher tells him not to follow the teen.
This is looking more and more like a murder and not a self defense. I suspect Mr. Zimmerman will not get away with this. Also if Mr. Zimmerman gets sent to prison for Murder or Manslaughter, I suspect the anti-rights activists who are working so hard to portray Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” laws as “License to Murder”, will quickly forget this case. We’ll need to remember it as it shows that such laws only protect people defending their lives, and NOT people committing murder.
Still even as this looks more and more like a murder case, the unabashed and encouraged racism is amazing me. Have a look at this horrible hit-piece.
The neighborhood crime watch volunteer who got out of his car and shot him is white and Hispanic. He has not been arrested and is claiming self-defense.
I had assumed with the name “Zimmerman” he was of Jewish heritage, but we can see from his mugshot he is indeed a brown-skinned individual. Of course the media has been ignoring this, he’s always been refereed to as White. Odd how Mr. Zimmerman is “White”, but President Obama is “Black”, and groups like the Tea Party have been branded “Racist” because they disagree with how the President runs the country. See in America racism is 100% ok if its the CORRECT kind of racism.
Late Friday night, after weeks of pressure, the police played the 911 calls in the case for the family and gave copies to the news media. On the recordings, one shot, an apparent warning or miss, is heard, followed by a voice begging or pleading, and a cry. A second shot is then heard, and the pleading stops.
“It is so clear that this was a 17-year-old boy pleading for his life, and someone shot him in cold blood,” said Natalie Jackson, one of the Martin family lawyers.
Again if this is true this is a case of Murder, possibly one that might be plead down to Manslaughter. Again, I strongly suspect Mr. Zimmerman is going to spend some time in Jail and certainly deserves to, if this evidence is being honestly presented. Of course its also presenting a clear point that Florida’s laws are NOT protecting Mr. Zimmerman, simply acknowledging that self defense is NOT a crime, and he is free until the Police have enough evidence to arrest him on murder charges.
Mr. Zimmerman lives in the predominantly white gated community where the shooting took place. A criminal justice major in college, he often patrolled the streets in his car. In the last 14 months, Mr. Zimmerman had made 46 calls to the police, officials said, reporting everything from alarms and disturbances to reckless driving and, most commonly, a “suspicious” person.
Certainly this paints Mr. Zimmerman as a “Mall Ninja” type person. This doesn’t make him a murderer, but it isn’t a positive light. Also curious about calling this a “White Gated Community”, given that Mr. Zimmerman and Mr. Martin’s family was in there. On these grounds we live in a “Predominantly white” country, you can’t claim “Racism” against minorities simply because they are in fact a minority.
Echoing a view held by many blacks in Sanford and elsewhere, the family’s lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said the police appeared to be protecting Mr. Zimmerman.
“Had Trayvon been the person who was the triggerman, they would have arrested him from Day 1 and they wouldn’t have given him bail and he would be sitting in jail,” Mr. Crump said. “Zimmerman is free and sleeping in his own bed at night.”
Well maybe Mr. Zimmerman NEEDS protection, right now he hasn’t been charged (which again doesn’t mean he WON’T be charged) and in fact he ISN’T in his bed, because he was forced to flee his home because of multiple death threats and stalkings.
BTW notice that the people calling for Mr. Zimmerman’s blood with no regard for justice or due process are almost exclusively black. This isn’t a racist lynch mob, that would be inconvenient.
Again I’m not defending Mr. Zimmerman, I just am currently disgusted by this racist pressure cooker being encouraged by the Media and the Anti-Rights activists. We should be better than this as a society, but it seems that its only OK to be better to than this if you are white, which is horribly shameful.
I would also like to express my condolences to the Martin family, but I would also like to warn them that things are getting VERY ugly in Florida, and I’d hate for them to have blood on their hands as well, by encouraging vigilante revenge….
