"remember Trayvon", same thing following rally in Toledo
78 yr old white man beaten by a gang of black youths who'd attended a Trayvon Martin rally.
The 17-year-old also faces a felonious assault charge from an
unrelated shooting, Ms. Olender said. The teen allegedly shot Mark
Bolling, 24, in the 600 block of Leonard Street in East Toledo on March
Mr. Watts said one of the boys delivered a single blow to the back of
his head during the incident Saturday, knocking the victim to the
At one point, the victim recalled being lifted from the ground so one of the boys could "drop-kick" him in the chest.
One boy, he said, put his foot on the back of the victim's neck, with another shouting, "Kill him."
While Mr. Watts was down the boys kicked him, over and over,
shouting, "[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon ... Trayvon
lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]," according to a police
Hmm, just 17 years old, probably the apple of his mother's eye.
No excuse for either act.
I was always taught that two wrongs don't make a right.
He's not innocent but he's not alone
Our media reporters are more to blame in my opinion. Anything for a story. If no story, create one. All they'd need to do to truthfully report that an incident is being investigated as racially motivated is to be investigating it themselves. Look how many of their titles start with a question rather than a statement. They no longer report the news as much as they generate it. Sharpton and Jackson each have a red phone and reporters have the numbers on speed dial.
Yeah, I guess it pays him somehow
Sort of like a contract killer, but instead a liberal contract racist.
two muttered words
On CNN of all places, the two barely muttered words that NBC said others claimed said "F---ing ****" have actually been properly analyzed and Zimmerman, who had turned back toward his SUV, probably mentioned the reason he turned back to his warmer SUV. After cleanup from wind noise (both cold, damp and windy that night) it seems the muttered words were "F---ing Cold".
Heard all that and was expecting more to be made of it
It took a lot of filtering and editing to get the breathy utterance bring out anything that remotely sounding like actual words. I'd even need to wonder why it was so important for someone to painstakingly scrutinize the rather lengthy 911 call to look for anything that could be dirt. Some folks have nothing worthwhile to do but obviously it would have been a major news coup and probably caused a lot more marching and shouting that already happened. Anything for a buck, I guess.
I listened to the audio also
The first time around, the reporter was going on about how obvious the content was but I couldn't make out a thing. With further enhancement, I also thought it sounded like "f'ing cold." It was chilly and raining that night, hence the absurdity of finding it suspicious that Trayvon would have his hood on.
I'm betting Zimmerman's bare head was cold
And since skin can turn red from cold air, that might explain what some thought was bruising on the back of his head.
What it means
Is very unlikely there will be any corruption of justice by means of "civil rights violation" and the federal officials can pack up and go back home. Hopefully they'll pack up Sharpton and Jackson and give them a ride out of town too. Perhaps a well placed mention of how both have violated Zimmerman's civil rights might put them on the move to head back up north.
RE:(both cold, damp and windy that night)
All the more reason to be wearing a HOODIE
or some sort of head covering?
this could have all been avoided with a little foresight.
Your examples are "for show"
this is more functional
If there's a human equivalent to..
the Snakehead,it's Sharpton.
Where will Sharpton and Jesse Jackson Never Go?
Here, and places like it. Good article about where the real crimes are which hurt black people the most.
