What Are We Talking About In This Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Thing?
I was watching the news today and was absolutely astonished what I saw relative to this George Zimmerman person. Apparently he is suing one of the major television networks for making it sound like he was being racist in the audio of his phone call to the police. WTH!!!!
All I could think was: “If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with bull droppings.” That seems to be the defense that his attorney is rolling with: The “If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with bull droppings” defense.
I know I have been on this rant before since I redid the page, but here it is. The race issue is a peripheral issue in this case.
I don’t care if Trayvon Martin was as white as a fresh snowman, the exact same actions would still be just as evil and just as illegal. George Zimmerman’s actions are to some degree premeditated, but he stalked, chased down, attacked and shot a teenage boy who’s only possible crime was being scary in Mr. Zimmerman’s mind. I suppose I sure have underestimated how scary Skittles and Arizona Tea are.
The race issue is a divisive attempt to manipulate the general public into a racial conflict as if trying to drum up support for a candidate for mayor in some racially divided town. He is not on some campaign to gain a percentage of public opinion for or against him. This man stalked, attacked and ended up killing someone’s child: Much of which he did while on the phone with the police who were instructing him to stop.
He could have been wearing a Klu Klux Klan outfit or a t-shirt that says I love Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and it would be just as illegal and ridiculous. If you stalk, attack and kill a Caucasian person it would be just as illegal and outrageous as it is to have killed this teenager.
What I don’t understand is why this lawyer and this Zimmerman person can get this much airtime and nobody calls them on the fact that the race thing is a peripheral issue and a distraction from the real case.
I will keep saying the same thing: You cannot stalk, attack and shoot any person of any race, creed or color in the United States. The only pertinent issue is weather or not our legal system is going to let a person get away with stalking, attacking and killing another person. The media circus of distraction is meaningless.
