At some point in the future I plan on getting my concealed carry license. So I watched what happened with interest. And I will gladly call anybody who approved of O.J. getting off but disapproves of justice in the Zimmerman case a hypocrite at the least.
Here is a timeline, with maps, that pretty much matches what was presented during the trial. It shows that Martin had pretty much “escaped” Zimmerman’s surveillance and could have walked in the door of the place he was staying at and it would have been over.
Another thing that has been glossed over is that Martin had been suspended from school after being caught writing graffiti on a school locker and a security guard looking through his backpack for the graffiti marker and instead found women’s rings and earrings and a screwdriver, described by the staffer as a “burglary tool.”
Then there are the text messageswhere he said his mother had “kicked” him out of the house and told him to move in with his father.
I’m not going to go into the details of the tattoos Martin’s parents didn’t know about until after he had them. (Most states you have to have a parent or guardian sign off if you’re under eighteen.) The fact that he had a grill. There were supposedly a shot of him giving the bird to the camera.
None of this was allowed in as evidence at trial.
Then there is the media calling Martin a child. That aggravates me. If you are seventeen and have your parent’s consent you can join the military. An example of what was not really shown by the lamestream media can be found on Breitbart:
George Zimmerman defense attorney Mark O’Mara used physical exhibits in his closing argument to demonstrate to the jury the size disparity between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. Martin was 5’11 and 158 lbs. at the time, while George Zimmerman clocked in at a clinically obese 5’7” and 204 lbs. The exhibit, which was not entered into evidence, was meant to show the jury that Zimmerman reasonably could have feared for his life once he was in a fight with Martin.
I stand around 5’11″ myself. I don’t have to look up to many people. If I see some guy that is in my height range or above, they are probably an adult or damned close to it.
Then the George Zimmerman witness describes it as an ‘MMA Style’ fight with Martin on top. The coroner also said the wound track indicates the single shot had to have Martin sitting on Zimmerman.
This was never a race based shooting. It was made into one. They tried to twist the facts, and they still couldn’t railroad Zimmerman. I won’t call Zimmerman a hero, but he is nowhere the devil being portrayed.
