Are We Still Talking About This Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Thing?
I have mentioned in previous articles that I believe there is a huge push to distract the planet from the real issue in this case. The real issue is that a min hid in the bushes, armed with a gun, followed a young man (who was armed with candy and a soda) stalked this man for several blocks, spoke to the police who told this man to stop following this man and leave him alone, then this man jumped out at this man in a threatening manner, got into a fight with this man (and apparently got the snot kicked out of him), then shot this man that he had been stalking and hunting down to threaten and possibly beat up.
Today, I saw that the lawyers for this George Zimmerman person released a picture of Mr. Zimmerman with a bloody face and swollen nose saying that it supports his story.
The problem I have with all of this is that Mr. Zimmerman’s story is one of breaking the law, ignoring the police, attacking a man he had been stalking for no reason except for the fact that this YOUNG BOY looked scary to a man hiding in the bushes looking for people who look scary. In Mr. Zimmerman’s story he ends up shooting this man and it is okay because, in defending himself in perfectly legal manner when being stalked by an armed idiot in the middle of the night, young Treyvon Martin kicked the snot out of him.
I am absolutely befuddled by the fact that this is even a serious conversation and that George Zimmerman has the support of anyone that he is not related to or that is not locked up in some compound off in the woods living off of canned food in camouflage with their rifle awaiting some weird new world order.
Have we really come to a point that any idiot who can get access to the media can drive public opinion to absolutely ridiculous ideas as truth? The lawyers for Mr. Zimmerman have been able to manipulate public opinion to the place where there is even a discussion about if it was warranted for this ridiculous stalker to shoot this man he watched, stalked, attacked and killed while the police were telling him not to do it.
If this man is found not guilty, it would make an absolute mockery of our entire legal system and ability to manage our right to bear arms. How do we stand before the entire planet and say it is okay in our country to chase down and fight with any person we are not comfortable with. That is the primary problem her and the primary offense is that Zimmerman was already engaged in an egregious act of breaking the law before the conflict with Martin took place. Then his confrontation of Martin was a whole other egregious act. In the act of committing these crimes (against the law and crimes against humanity) he wound up killing a young man who according to the evidence, was only guilty of eating candy and drinking canned iced tea (drinking soda being illegal only in New York as far as I know).
I don’t know how this is a case and a story. WTH!? The only story is why is this man not strapped to somebody’s electric chair yet for such a horrible act. How does a parent swallow the idea that their child was stalked, fought and killed by some wannabe vigilante running the streets of the United States killing innocent children and that he might be within his rights to do this according to the courts?
Could somebody explain to me what Trayvon Martin was guilty of that deserved the death penalty at the hands of the idiot. George Zimmerman is an embarrassment to our entire nation and its legal system. We need to deal with this and his legal team’s use of the international media to expand the coverage of this has forced our hand. This must be handled in an extreme and public way or we have said to the world that on the streets of the United States you can stalk and kill people who you are scared of.
