Trayvon Martin's Death Shows Justice Is Not Equal

Categories: Luke's Gospel
lukesgospel.jpg
Luther Campbell, the man whose booty-shaking madness made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke is tired of marching and rallying for justice.

Last week, thousands of people, led by Rev. Al Sharpton, held a rally in Sanford, Florida, to protest the fact police have still not arrested neighborhood vigilante George Zimmerman for killing Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin in cold blood. That followed rallies in New York and Miami, as well as kids from Miami Carol City High, Central High, Michael Krop High, and Miami Northwestern High walking out of school in protest.

I don't know about you, but I am tired of holding rallies and marches to get justice every time an innocent African-American is murdered over the color of his skin. The saddest part about Trayvon's death is that we still have a lot of Anglos believing we don't have serious racial problems in this country.

What happened to Trayvon is no different from the days when the Ku Klux Klan would go around dragging black folks from their homes and lynching them. But when you point out the injustice, people who are not black are quick to accuse us of playing the race card. It's wrong.

As I watch these rallies and marches play out, I can't help but wonder why there aren't more white people joining in calling for Zimmerman's arrest. I remember there were a lot of white faces organizing protests when Michael Vick was accused of fighting dogs. Now you have an innocent black kid get murdered like a dog, yet you only see mostly African-Americans showing up to protest. There are very few prominent Anglos and Hispanics voicing any outrage.

I want to see Tea Party golden boy and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio taking the floor of Congress to condemn the assassination of a 17-year-old African-American. But I know it won't happen.

When we talk about disenfranchising African-Americans and the law being applied differently if you were a white person, Anglos try to turn around and call us racist. But the black man is right when he says it needs to stop. Seeking justice for these innocent individuals is not racist.

Until some white people acknowledge we still have serious race issues and stop calling out African-Americans for playing the race card for telling the truth, we will never be treated equally in the United States of America.

I am Arkansas Southern white Heinz 57 & Fencejumper & let me tell u brother (blood knows no other color but red!), this whole thing has been a sad joke. Reuters says 65% of the white population doesn't c this as unjust! I bet if Zimmerman was black n Trayvon white, it'd b different! Just is just n this is garbage. &it's 6weeks behind! If it was ur child, would u want 2 wait 6 weeks 2 investigate? Either Reuters needs 2 repoll or whites need 2 wake up.

Too quick to judge and sentence Zimmerman even before the facts came out.  NBC failed to play the entire 911 tape, they edited it to make Zimmerman sound like a racist.  NBC executive fired for doing this.  Too late as the blacks will NEVER accept the truth.  Sharpton & Jackson again made fools of themselves and all the others who spoke before the facts have come out.  Zimmerman may be guilty but we won't know that since people have already made up their minds he's guilty. When black on black crime stops and black people "snitch" on each other about black on black crime then maybe they could help themselves. Black people need a family unit not a government teat with more handouts.  Stand up for yourselves in peace & stop the thug music and lifestyles that you glorify.  I don't care where you come from - you don't have to continue down the same road.  Going to the voting booth to vote for Obama and more democrats is only voting to keep yourselves enslaved.  When are black people going to wake up and see what their own people are doing to them?  MLK was NOT speaking to white Americans when he said not to judge the content of a man's character by the color of his skin.  He was talking to black people who keep trusting "bros" to protect them and they are NOT!  Sharpton & Jackson have never helped a bro, they only come out to make themselves more powerful.Wake up and stop this stuck on stupid.

What about the white couple whose kidnapping and death's were so obscene that i couldn't read anymore of the report. By 5 or 6 black's. The reason? Because they were white. Where is the outrage by black's when the black panther's call for the death of all whites..their babies..their white grandparent's, the infirm and the weak? Where is the outrage when black's kill white people? I am sick of the victimhood touted by the black community(not all). They have more right's and opportunites than any other race in america but it's never enough. And what's with the decription zimmerman is white-hispanic? They have to point out his one half causasion or whatever % he is. I have found black's to be more racist's than whites. They just won't let us forget we are white and they are black.

Jesse Jackson,   and Al Sharpton live in a mostly white guarded white community.

So Jackson is out for a late night stroll. He sees a young man, on the path between houses, not on the sidewalks..then he can see that the man is black, young...then the hoodie comes up and his face is hiden...his hand is in his pocket...........you think Jackson is not scared witless..as any sensible person would be? Black young men like that..are about 2% of the USA population..but they commit40% of all violent crimes.Jackson admitted..in talking about black crime on blacks..that when he heard footsteps behind him at night..and he turned around..and they were white.......he breathed a sigh of relief.

Rep. Bobby Rush wore a Hoodie on the floor of the House of Representatives to protest racism against Hoodies. he was removed and black folks were upset about that.Last night..young black men..wearing hoodies..in Bobby Rush's neighborhood...killed five people and injured a lot more. Neighbors said...there were bodies everywhere.

Wonder how Rush feels about hoodies today"

What do black people want Luke? If they go to school and don't beat the teacher, they already get free college. 90% of black children grow up on food stamps and few of them are thin. Martin's Mother..Father and Girlfriend worked..where? What did they do?Those well dressed black people..out in the streets, outraged over how badly they are treated..do not work. But they are well dressed. Well Fed. Too well fed. They drive automobiles. Most have jewelry on.  WHERE DO THEY GET THESE THINGS? FROM OBAMA'S STASH/

Do they need more money? Is that it? More things? More Medicade More WIC more ATDC  ?

I have seen several nations in this world. In the USA...those people are called disadvantaged. On world standards..they are rich. The One Percent of the world.But again..they are excused from working. They can get for free any kind of education that others cannot get. They can riot and put bounties out for people.White people cannot say words that they think are racist .even though they use the word..as Treyvon did.YOU TELL ME.......................WHAT DO THEY WANT? MAKE A LIST.

Still dont get it...  Hatred in America will never go away as long as people get paid to spread it.  Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are both idiots that spread hate.  They see an injustice on a black kid and they are there to rally and cause riots and get on TV to run their mouths, however let the same thing happen to a white kid and see what happens...  nothing. 

Sure, maybe Trayvons case was total bullshit.  You take that to capitol hill and leave it at that.  Attempt to get the law changed, dont rally and cause a national race war.

if it was Hitler/TedBundy/IdiAmin walking down the street in his own neighborhood, unarmed... someone followed him, then confronted him (even though the person was advised by LEO not to do so), got beat up (however badly) then shot and killed the unarmed (yet unquestionably evil) person; it would still be a crime.  If I was walking down the street in my neighborhood, was followed, and confronted, I would fight the person (now, as an adult, I would be armed; at 17, I was not).  Do I deserve to get shot and killed? Race is not the issue. The fact that Zimmerman got beat up isn't even the issue... The fact that Zimmerman was advised by LE Dispatch to NOT follow the "suspicious person" and did so anyway; then confronted the person, got into a physical altercation with the person, and ended up shooting and killing the person; that is the issue.  You are given the right to use deadly force in the event that you are trying to stop a forceable felony against yourself or someone else; "stand your ground" does not apply when you confront an individual and by said confrontation, provoke a physical altercation. In this instance, Zimmerman was the aggressor; subsequently, a young man was killed.  The lack of police action just fosters the negative view of LE by minorities...

Everyone's talking about Zimmerman's right to defend himself.  What about Trayvon's?  Zimmerman was safe in his car, armed, yet chose to go after Trayvon for no reason.  All the kid knows is this big guy with a gun is following him.  If he attacked Zimmerman, wouldn't that have been self defense, too?  If Zimmerman had stayed in the car, like he was told by LE to do, that kid would still be alive.  Period.

Justice is not equal!  Hispanics and whites are killed everyday and not one of these celebrities, civil rights leaders say nadda!  There was a WHITE couple just recently that were accosted by several BLACK males.  They were taken around at gun point to ATMS, then the white male was sodomized in front of his girlfriend and had his private removed and shot like a dog, then the girl was RAPED repeatedly and on local channels and FOX covered it.  The liberal media, civil rights leaders, celebrities didn't say Nothing.  I am a minority and I don't like the way the liberal media is FAILING to mention Trayvon's troubles, history and even be honest by showing his grilled up photos and antisocial poses on his facebook.  He is 6'3" and 17, and you have to ask yourself why they continue to show his 12 year pictures beside an adult picture of Zimmerman!  They are really trying to keep up the hate by calling Zimmerman a "WHITE HISPANIC".  They are disgraceful and this kid was NO ANGEL.  The report is leaking out that he came back and approached Zimmerman then assaulted him.  This is where Zimmerman was legally within his right to protect himself.  If Trayvon had come back and questioned Zimmerman on why he was following him and Zimmerman had shot him, that is murder, but being young and dumb, he wanted to prove a point with assaulting him, like he assaulted the bus driver and he wasn't counting on this guy having a weapon.  It is what it is, happens everyday when a punk kid comes back and confronts a older man thinking he can talk trash and even assault the older person. I had it happen last summer when a teenage punk came into the mom and pop store yelling, cursing and when I told him that he didn't have to do all that in front of small children and women, he tried to put his hands on me and being (mid 50's, 6'3", 255 and retired military)trained to take care of myself, I flipped him like a cheese omlette!The media has to stop being dishonest and post Trayvons ENTIRE facebook photos and tweets even showing him doing drug transactions with one of his gangsta wantabee buddies.They don't want to show it because they couldn't push their agenda.Shame on YOU Sharpton, Jackson for being hypocrites and for being silent when hispanic, asian, white kids are killed and assaulted by black thugs as well!

Unfortunately, when are we going to stop expecting White America (a country built on the principals of racism) to acknowledge their wrongs.  They never will, they will continuously justify it by attempting to smear the victims' name (just as they're doing with Trayvon).  Smoke screens about what a person was wearing and being suspended for something that was non-violent.  Why are we even entertaining their bullsh*t, bullsh*t from closet racists?  Why are we even having discussions about hoodies or weed?  F*ck that.  Let's talk about a grown a*s man who had a sterotype embedded in his head of young black boys and his desire to be a hero.  This dude came from Virginia for God's sake - he's not racist because his mother is latino?  Unfortunately many Latino's have no idea that they are black, they actually think that they are Anglo because of all the intermingling of race, they got lighter and lighter and lighter.  But I digress that point.  The point is this man has a history of violence, has been charged with violent crimes.  Trayvon was not suspended from school because of violent behavior but that is not the issue.  The issue is that this country is built on principals of white supremacy and unfortunately that will never change.  It's like living in a home built on sand, at some point it will fall, and all the decorations fancy paint and fixtures don't change the fact that that home is built on a faulty foundation and will eventually fall.  That's America, built on a faulty foundation, in the process of falling!!!!

How come all the facts havent come out?.... What does the report say, does it say anything about Trayvon beating up Zimmerman, if so why, I can tell you if someone was following me and approached me at night like that, Id be scared they were going to Rob me... I see a few things in this case:1. A unstable Vigilante carrying a weapon pretending to be a cop

2. A failure in the police Depts. investigation ( my friend pulld out his weapon in his car after being punched in his car, while the two men approached his car, and he still got locked up for pulling out his weapin in Miami; Case dismissed)

3. Media trying to destroy a Murdered child's character, by painting him a gangster, criminal...Doesnt matter if He was a heroin tranvesty, an innocent person was killed.

What about when Mr Trevor Dooley shot an unarmed Irag war vet in front of mr James' 8 year old daughter and used the same defense and got away with it ???????Is it ok for a black man to shoot and unarmed White man and get away with it anymore than the other way around  ?   Mr zimmerman should be charged, but I do not believe it was racial anymore than Mr Dooley shooting Mr James.   Mr Campbell, I agree there are still racial issues in this country,  but you only pointing your finger at every white on black crime as racial is no better than an other bigot or racist.   Crimes occur in all colors and all social economic conditions and you can't have it both ways, if its a racially motivated crime everytime a white person kills a black person, than its racially motivated everytime a black person kills a white person and it should treated that way.    And on a side note, anytime the Reverend Al Sharptons name is mentioned in an artical, it loses its punch, this the guy who lied about the Tawana Brawly incident (that never happened), ruined peoples lives for no other reason than to stir up racial hatred, shpould be tried for a hate crime along with Tawana Brawly, instead the african American community holds him up like a hero.   Shame on anyone who looks to him for guidence.

Okay... just my 2 cents.

First, there are only young photos of Trayvon, because the media can not get their hands on recent pics of him. The family is "marketing" him to be young, cute, and innocent. The reality is, Trayvon was a 17 year old football player on the verge of manhood.

Second, who was screaming in the 911 calls?  Most out there already ASSUMED it was Trayvon.  Let's me clear... in the early days of the 911 calls being release, did anyone consider the screams for help to be Zimmerman?  

Finally, one of two things happened... Zimmerman approached Trayvon, and Trayvon was so insulted that Zimmerman was asking him questions that he attacked Zimmerman, and led to himself being shot.  Or, Zimmerman approached and instigated Trayvon into a fight and shot him in a racist plot.

Now ask yourself, if Zimmerman had the motive to do that, why would he be calling 911 before? If he had this racist motive to kill someone, wouldn't he make an attempt to not be caught?  

Common sense alone tells me the police have the facts and have made the right choice.  Common sense and facts.  It goes a long way.

There are two sides, if you are black... consider the other side just for a moment.  Because, it's beginning to be quite clear that Zimmerman was attacked and Trayvon got shot because of it. Prepare yourself for the truth, after all these marches and rallies... what will you do next when the facts reveal Trayvon thought he could beat up an innocent man asking innocent questions. Trayvon would be alive today, if he had enough pride to keep walking. 

Bottom line, it doesn't matter if Zimmerman made an effort to get out of the car, or stereotyped Trayvon as a black suspicious man.  He has the right to do that. We all do it every day. He also has the right to shoot anyone who attacks him with deadly intent.... such as smashing your head on a sidewalk.

All protesters... just promise me one thing... whatever the grad jury decides, just go back to your daily life and let this go.  Worry about the black on black crime and senseless killings among each other.  Rally, march, and protest to hold yourselves accountable in your urban crimes and gangs.  That's a greater fight.

I have a solution to save Trayvon types from white crime and that since black men commit 78% of violent crimes we should automaticaay put you in prison age 17 t0 age 35. It would for every body you guys would not be shot and the rest of us would be safer.

Equally?  Your President is African American and last time I checked a crap load of White People voted for him, but still not good enough! Marco Rubio isn't White buddy he is Hispanic or Latino depends on what you believe.  Everyone here is missing the point this shouldnt be made black/white/hispanic/asian.... but it should be made about how a kid got shot and some guy who should know better abused a law.  How a police department failed to investigate, detain and question Zimmerman.  STOP MAKING THIS ABOUT RACE it should be about how SOMEONE USED A LAW TO THEIR ADVANTAGE!

If it can be proven that Zimmerman assaulted Trayvon which then resulted in a defensive punch to the face and a tackle, it would be his fault.  Following someone in your gated neighborhood to ask them who they are / where they are going / if they live in the area (if that's what happened) is not a crime.

Sir Sausage

If Zimmerman attacked him, yes, he could have defended himself.  Was Zimmerman walking around with his gun exposed?  Probably not.  I seriously doubt he would have even gotten roughed up if he had his handgun out in the open because attacking a man who is openly armed is foolish.

Why does everyone keep bringing up the part about him being followed and his right to defend himself?  ITS PERFECTLY LEGAL TO FOLLOW SOMEONE.

You are not in the slavery of your ancestors but slavery that the democrat party and people like Sharpton & Jackson have made you think you need to be in.  When black people wake up and realize what their own bros and the democrat party has been doing to them, they will only then be empowered.  MLK  was not talking to whites when he said "Judge a man by the content of his character, not the color of his skin".  He was talking to you.  Wake up.  Stop living in the past, see the people who want to keep you down (democrats) and do something besides blame!!!!!!

I do believe anon in fact the father LIED about Travyon's suspension and in fact they have come out and said he has assaulted a bus driver.  I am a minority and looked at his facebook photos and his tweets and he is antisocial in his posing, drug photos on his website and his tweets in Feb 25, I believe make reference to him and a buddy doing drug transactions. 

IF this kid was that 12 year old kid in the photos the media and his family are portraying him to be and Zimmerman had approached a kid with skittles and shot him, I would be as outraged as the next person, but the facts are the media is lying, the race pimp sharpton is lying and his parents are extremely dysfunctional and now the mom is marketing her son's name and slogans for a buck.....just disgraceful

Like I said the victims are the black community for being suckered into believing this narrative the liberal media is trying to push with OLD photos from the third grade when they know that this guy is a gangsta wantabee thug.......ALL HIS PHOTOS ARE GANGSTA THUG PHOTOS OF GANG SIGN FLASHING FRIENDS TO HIS WEED PHOTOS!  If he was eating skittles and tea it was due to the weed he was smoking on the way over to his dad's girlfriends place in a GATED COMMUNITY that he DID NOT LIVE IN!

The Racist want you to believe that Zimmerman was a cold racist killer, he is the next victim when Sharpton and the race hustlers try to take this back to 1960 for a revenge lynch mob trial!

The country worked fine until the 60's. What movement became prevalent in the 60's? That's right... Affirmative action. In addition to every social program on the planet being given to African Americans, it still wasn't enough. The biggest unannounced social program in the country is also on the verge of collapsing. The post office! It's a prime example of jobs given to unqualified, angry people. Go to any post office in the major cities in the country. Who works there? What are all of your friends going to do when we shut down the post offices around the country ANON? Claim racism again... and again... and again! The game is over. The support structure for your stupid and silly views is found in the under 25 crowd. That is not a strong demographic. Good luck ANON. Stay angry and in denial. Wait... You and your friends could always go into entertainment. Overdose on drugs or have 30 kids with 25 different partners. That's already been done. It's called the African American populous! Stats don't lie. Blacks make up 12.7% of the population, and account for over 50% of all violent crime. Look at the writer of this article. He has 6 kids by 5 women. Half of his kids won't talk to him. Another strong role model. Remember ANON, KEEP IT REAL!

First, last I checked we have a black president... and I, a white male, voted for him.

I'm sorry to say, but Trayvon was not an innocent boy.  There are lots of details revealing he was a hoodlum.  Read for yourself.  Zimmerman too, has past issues.  So lets call it a push and say they were both idiots.  Now, let's say all was legal up to the point where Zimmerman confronted him and asked questions.  All legal... all fine.  Don't argue about morals or stereotypes... that's irrelevant.  Now, what happened?

Bottom line... WE DON'T KNOW!  So saying a racist innocently killed a black man with Skittles is quite naive.  All we have is facts and Zimmerman's account.  

Hey, I'm all for an arrest and jury on this guy... but I don't see a conviction happening.

The media paints accordingly to what media you are watching and to the ever growing facts that get revealed.  Trayvon has been painted as an innocent victim and a drug user... Zimmerman has been painted as a racist and an honorable neighborhood watchman. You can say the media has been fair and not fair.  So, don't argue about the media, try to focus on facts.

I do have to say one thing, there's no way Zimmerman would be leaving his car and pursuing a suspicious black man on a dark rainy night if he didn't have a gun.

"Or, Zimmerman approached and instigated Trayvon into a fight". 

If Zimmerman stalked Trayvon, which he did (obvious from 911 call).  Zimmerman was told "not to follow" after admitting that he was following him.  That right there is where he went too far and went looking for trouble.  If the police were on their way, then he should let the police do their job.  You don't try to be a hero and follow someone.  If someone is following you, at night, and not identifying themselves, or sure you're just going to hang around and wait.  Did it ever occur to you that Trayvon may have thought Zimmerman was following because he wanted to rob him or harm him?  In this case Trayvon was within his rights to "STAND HIS GROUND" in self-defense.

Bottom line, it doesn't matter if Zimmerman made an effort to get out of the car, or stereotyped Trayvon as a black suspicious man.  He has the right to do that.It DOES matter if Zimmerman made an effort to get out of the car, for what?  That doesn't even make sense, if you felt threatened, why get out the car?  If you feel threatened are you going to walk and follow someone you feel threatened by? 

He has the right to stereotype someone??????  Wow, since when? What a clear indication that white supremacy is imbedded in your psyche. This is why racism will always exists until this world is destroyed, because it's imbedded and you fail to recognize it.

Common sense, if my head is being smashed into the concrete, would I really still have the ability to shoot someone?  Come on use your common sense.  It's clear you're not using common sense or rationale.  There was nothing wrong with Zimmerman, had their been, where are the pictures of his injuries?  Really, that would have been included in the police report.  Pictures of victims are taken, pictures would have been taken at the station.  No what happened was they figured they'd write up the report, include bogus information and no one would question it, but they f*cked up by not taking photos to back up and prove their claim that he was attacked.  Now they feed the press bogus information and you fools believe it, LOL.

You are RIGHT about one thing.  We as blacks do need to deal with and address black on black crime.  And while I'm not a fan of certain self-serving individuals they are not the answer to solving the ills of our communities.

Weak. Current photos of Trayvon have been shown in news reports. You may not notice the difference, because apparently his face had hardly changed and he was still a skinny kid at the time of his death. He was significantly taller - 6'3", but certainly not a lot bigger.

The democrats did this to blacks.  And they continue to do it and the blacks keep believing the dems & other blacks like Sharpton & Jackson will lift them up and bring them to power.  They only way to have power is to stay in school, do not have babies out of wedlock, work at a paying job that is not illegal or gangsta, be a responsible adult and stop blaming everyone for your lot in life.  Be respectful of others and live by the law and go to a church that believes in Christianity not hate.

Child Please?

I'm 54 almost 55, with children as old as 33 and youngest 22, grandchildren 11, 8, 5, 3 and I told ALL of them as I have the kids in the neighborhood that if you want to dress and act like you are gangsta, people will take you at your word and treat you accordingly!

Thank god I joined the military to get out of the brainwashing that was going on.  After living in 12 different countries other that the US and going to 56 different countries along with 30 island nations and islands around the world I see things completely different and one day you will be as lucky and have an opportunity to open your mind to see things as they really are!

If a boy puts on a dress and walks around the neighborhood claim he is no different that the other boys, would you say that people are going to believe you are the same as the other boys.......then if you dress, talk, and act like a thug, why would other people believe that you are this angelic boy like other choir boys?

Get my point.....and yes Ole Al Sharpton is a race hustler, I Grew up around Brooklyn, South Philly and DC area most of my youth and I knew the Old school Panthers that help out yes even white people, those cats were after equality and I went to school with some of their sons and daughters.....this NEW black panthers are straight up RACIST that hate any race other than black....as a minority I would NEVER associate myself with ANY RACE haters.   I have friends all over the world in different countries.  My family is so mixed it would shock you!  I have a German Aunt, French Aunt, My mom is from Spain, My grandparents came over on the boat in early 1900's on my father's side, I have a Filipino Aunt, My mom's sisters have Panamanian and Puerto Rican Husbands, My sister is married to an Italian guy second generation, My other sister has a Cuban Second Generation Husband in Florida, Two brothers have Puerto Rican and a Sandanavian wife....on and on!  We can spot the Real Racist.

My children's mother(ex wife) is Panamanian(black)and Mexican.  My current wife is Japanese and English mixed.

I was denied gas back in the day in a white gas station in Alabama....had to drive on fumes for several miles to a black station......just imagine customer service when we went out to eat back in those days!

This is not 1960 0r 1970, and in fact people bend over backwards for minorities today if the truth be told.....unless you are antisocial and complete idiot or loud mouth gangsta wanta bee......have no problems in 2012.

People should stop making it back in 1960 and stop upholding this case as a racially motivated case....IT"S NOT!  The Race hustlers want you to believe it is, but it is not!

What this is turning out to be is an unfortunate situation where a young kid did not use common sense and decided to come back and assault a guy that was caring a gun.  Had Zimmerman not been caring a gun, Zimmerman would have been in the hospital, and Tryvon would have been picked up for assault and maybe the media would not be showing a picture of 12 year old Tryvon, but then again, this would have not made the news and Sharpton and his race pimps would have been waiting for the next opportunity to push their agenda!

I have questions about what happened myself.  In the 911 tapes Zimmerman was chasing Trayvon why did the young boy go back to Zimmerman when he could have gotten away. Zimmerman told the cops he is going to get away.That is when the cops said "are you following him" and the he said yes and the the cops said " you do not need to do that " That may have been when Zimmerman went to go back to his car and Trayvon approached.  I do not think Trayvon knew that Zimmerman had a gun I do not think he was flashing it as he was chasing him. If I had bare hands and no weapon I would not go up against a large man with a gun. So Trayvon may have figured he could take on the overweight out of shape man after he had run for a while. Football players are rough and tough and in shape and can run fast where as an  out of shape overweight  like Zimmerman has been portrayed. Like the out of shape of whom I  know  some who cannot. And I am one. And you said how could Zimmerman shoot a gun if he was injured so bad. But even if I was injured and people have done this with very bad injuries and still able to do struggle for a weapon of some kind to fend off a physical attack, Even if it was a rock or mace , a stick or if they had a gun. We do not know we where not there the news was not there Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson nor the black panthers All the government people including the President was not there we can all say what we think happen and it may have just been a encounter between 2 persistent males. When they first reported it I thought wow that little bitty boy in the picture shot and the media was really pumping it up to make a big deal and did not have the facts. Did not know he was 17 and 6"3 and played football that changed things a lot there was more to this.  I am a mother and I would not want my son  have a wrongful death But if my son was doing wrong himself I would not want a innocent person to pay for it either just because I wanted revenge for deep feeling of anger I had ....that had nothing to do with the situation. I pray to God it all works out and every one allows the justice system to work but if people wants only one verdict that is not justice.

Police have already made note that the 911 dispatcher only made a recommendation and not a direct order for Zimmerman. Zimmerman also told the 911 dispatcher for the police to call his cell phone, and the 911 dispatcher approved, thus knowing Zimmerman was not staying put.  And... the 911 dispatcher is not a police authority to GIVE orders. So... yea. Zimmerman had every right to leave his car and follow.  Zimmerman had every right to confront Martin and ask questions.  

Where all this gets mangled up is what happened when Zimmerman approached.  Up to that point, you have no argument on what was moral or not.  It's perfectly legal and acceptable to do what Zimmerman did.  No matter WHAT you think about his intentions or stereotyping and profiling. And yes, last I checked we live in America, we have the right to stereotype.  We all do it... you can't argue you don't.  Stereotyping is also NOT racism. I love all races, but that doesn't mean all races are exactly alike.  There are always exceptions to the rule, but obviously statistics, facts, demographics... speak for themselves.

Assuming the police "fixed" their reports is a whole other argument... and little fact to back that up.  Of course there are photo evidence of the scene and Zimmerman, and possibly a video tape of his interview at the station.  Do you think this all is released without going through proper investigative outlets.  Or, perhaps we just turn it all over to you and so you can make your judgement.

Again, common sense is all we need.

black on black crime is natures way of population control...Blacks on black crime will only increase with time because it is culturally embedded in the black youth ,and will only get worse ,as America will be eliminating affirmative action in the next decade...
