Why #TeamDueProcess is important for justice; Correction and update: Twitchy issues apology for fake Trayvon Martin photo


Recognize these two people? If you don’t, we’ll help you out. The man on the left is George Zimmerman, the man accused of murdering the boy on the right, Trayvon Martin. The mainstream media won’t show you these two photos because they convey a message that no one else wants to take into consideration.

Correction, 8:56 pm ET March 25, 2012: We made a mistake. The photo on the right is not of the Trayvon Martin who was shot by Zimmerman. We apologize to our readers and to the Martin family.


The hashtag was started by Matthew Hurtt, later retweeted by Brooks Bayne who launched this trend into a spiral. The goal? To expose those making public threats against George Zimmerman, assuming he committed the crime he’s accused of before anyone wants to consider what else might have actually happened the day Martin was killed.


And why is this one being so heavily covered? Because of celebrity power assuming the possible guiltiness of one man. This is why we have due process. George Zimmerman may still not be innocent, but it’s up to the courts to decide that, not the media.


Update 3/27: The difference between Twitchy and Media Matters.

    Anybody who actually thinks they’re going to get unbiased reporting from the MSM is just deluded. The MSM has an agenda, and will stop at nothing to advance it.

    • http://twitter.com/RickySims1 Ricky Sims

      And, what is the agenda?

      • FrancisMcManus

        The agenda is to suggest it was reasonable, justifiable homicide for George Zimmerman to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin; that it was a matter of self defense, and that Zimmerman used only necessary and sufficient force.

        The agenda is to suggest Stand Your Ground Law is a good solution for handling perceived threats of bodily harm.

        • ALbert010

           You cannot “stand your ground” when you admit on tape to FOLLOWING someone. learn the fucking law if your going to defend it.

          Cops told Zimmerman not to follow, he did and killed a guy holding a bag of skittles. There is NO “justifiable homicide” when you have a gun and the dead guy doesnt.

          • FrancisMcManus

             I completely disagree but that’s the right’s agenda.  They are gun fetishists and they don’t want Zimmerman to go to trial.

          • SnapsBacula

            Bias much, McManus?  Make sweeping assumptions about an entire group of people often?  You’re so objective & wise.  Thanks for helping us out.

          • cljahn

             I support the Stand your Ground law, but I also believe this case is an abuse of it;  you’re not defending your property by chasing a kid down city streets, especially when the cops have told you to pull back.

            In fact, it’s MARTIN who became the threatened party in this matter, because he was walking and unarmed while a stranger was trailing him in a vehicle.  If Martin did end up attacking Zimmerman, HE is the one who had the right to “stand his ground.”

            Chew on that for awhile.

            Since the Sanford police failed to arrest a policeman’s son who beat up a black man in front of witnesses AND on video, they have demonstrated that their judgement isn’t reliable in these matters.

          • http://twitter.com/R2theEL Pippa Koa

            I completely agree. The fact that NOW they want to talk about the charter of a kid who can no longer defend his side of what happened is despicable. The Sanford Police made this media frenzy what it is and had they done their jobs that night, the outcome may have been different.

            The Police have no right to tell any citizen to not protect their property,the police do OUR BUSINESS ,but they arent nothing but servants.

            The punk jumped the dude and got his ass killed GOOD.iF MORE PEOPLE HAD GUNS punks WOULD THINK TWICE ABOUT JUMPING PEOPLE.

          • cljahn

            Ronald, you’re ignoring the facts: Zimmerman wasn’t protecting his
            property.  And Martin “stood his ground” against a stranger who was
            threatening him; Zimmerman was the threat.

            If Martin had had a gun, perhaps Zimmerman would be dead instead.

            The police are trained to detain suspicious people, and Zimmerman
            wasn’t.  If he’d stayed back and let the police handle it, likely no one
            would be dead, and no one would be screaming about an abuse of power.

          • Allen Williams

            Dude, you don’t have a clue of what you’re talking about. Listen to the details of the story before, posting a comment. There’s no proof of Trayvon (who is a buck and 30 cents) jumping on Zimmerman (who is 2 dollars and some change) But, there is a surveillance video of Zimmerman with no bruises or bleeding like he lied about.

          • http://twitter.com/ShamblerZak Zak Brown

            There is absolutely some cases of ‘justifiable homicide’ on an unarmed man. And just because the cops told the guy not to follow him doesn’t mean he has to listen to him. Why don’t you learn the law before you critisize it. 
            And there is no agenda to get the guy off you dummies, the police have to suggest the possibility that it was self defence until the guys been tried, thats the fucking justice system idiots.

          • Matunos

            Indeed. The police never arrest someone until they’ve been tried an convicted. I learned that watching Law and Order in rewind just like you apparently did.

          • Chelle Johnson

             That is a hilarious falsehood. I have personally known 2 people who got to sit in jail in two different states for weeks without having been convicted – only charged. And neither case even involved a gun much less actual violence. Even in a “self defense” case, the shooter doesn’t just get sent home after 2 hours of cops leading witnesses.

          • rjwalker

            And just because the cops told the guy not to follow him doesn’t mean he has to listen to him. Why don’t you learn the law before you critisize it. 

            But it does eliminate his claim of self-defense.

          • Keyser Soze

             The only person who would have been justified in using deadly force in this situation is Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was an armed aggressor who followed Martin down the street and violently assaulted and killed him. If Trayvon had a gun, according to the law he would have been legally justified in shooting George Zimmerman. But take a wild guess how long it would have taken police to arrest Trayvon if that had happened.

             Uh, yes, when the police say “DON’T FOLLOW SOMEONE”, you DON’T – & *that’s* WHY the “Stand Your Ground” law does NOT apply here: following/stalking are NOT “standing your ground”.

            The agenda to get the guy off was started before this hit the media: http://gma.yahoo.com/trayvon-martin-investigator-wanted-manslaughter-charge-151838720–abc-news-topstories.html

            The justice system requires that a murder suspect, even if he/she claims self defense, is detained and questioned until the investigation is over. I have never seen a case where persons involved in a death were set free pending investigation. Learn the justice system.

            I see your angry however if the police told him not to follow him and he would have been killed, his family would have felt the same way Trayvon’s family feels right now… I should have took his drunk ass hime and went to sleep…

          • cljahn

             It’s the job of Zimmerman’s lawyer to argue self defense; the police are supposed to keep armed killers off the street.

            Since the Collison case in  2010, when they failed to arrest a police officer’s son who beat up a man without any provocation in front of witnesses and on video tape, the Sanford Police Department has very little credibility when they claim “no evidence.”

          • HatredGlory

            I always thought the “Stand your ground law” only applied on your own personal property. The thing was written and signed into law when I was in 11th grade so I don’t exactly remember the exact details(nor at the time did I ever think I would care). From my understanding that law doesn’t apply to ‘defending’ yourself after you followed someone(especially after the 911 dispatcher tells you to not follow them)

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3FFQNWG5GWAC3TFFP3TWGXHC2Q Detroit's Finest

            they never said not to follow him. they said you dont have to continue following him. see the difference and how when you misinterperate something said you can draw some completely different conclusions? how do you think hes managed to stay out of trouble? dispatch still has police authority, if he didnt listen to them, then it would be a slam dunk case.

            actually the law says the only time deadly force can be used is when there is eminant danger of loss of life. the kid could have picked up a rock or even a rake with intent to hit and the law would have been justified. now they rolled around fighting for a while and the kid could have gotten the better of him there again if he didnt stop his physical self-defense it could have been justified to shoot the kid off of him. really the whole situation is about “ifs”

          • Christopher Mc

            Only the two people involved and the eye in the sky knows what happened. People shouldn’t get worked up and use this situation as an excuse to vomit racist opinions out of their mouth or on the net like most people have done. I have to hear this crap in my criminal justice classes. A white teacher has different perception than another teacher of mine that is black. There decision is based solely upon the box their soul lives in because they live in lower levels of consciousness. The fact is- If Zimmerman was told to stay in the car by the operator and he chose not to, he instigated the situation to occur. He could have continued to follow Martin without making contact. If Zimmerman can’t defend himself against a 17 year old youth, he has no business with a gun or trying to play cops and robbers as neighbor hood watch lame.

            According to the Zimmerman camp today, the media distorted the entire thing…
            Statement of Robert Zimmerman, father of Neighborhood Watch volunteer: “The tragic events of February 26 are very sad for all concerned. The Martin family, our family, and the entire community have been forever changed. The portrayal of George Zimmerman in the media, as well as the series of events that led to the tragic shooting are false and extremely misleading. Unfortunately, some individuals and organizations have used this tragedy to further their own causes and agendas.George is a Spanish speaking minority with many black family members and friends. He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. One black neighbor recently interviewed said she knew everything in the media was untrue and that she would trust George with her life. Another black neighbor said that George was the only one, black or white, who came and welcomed her to the community, offering any assistance he could provide. Recently, I met two black children George invited to a social event. I asked where they met George. They responded that he was their mentor. They said George visited them routinely, took them places, helped them, and taught them things and that they really loved George. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. The events of February 26 reported in the media are also totally inaccurate. Out of respect for the on-going investigation, I will not discuss specifics. However, the media reports of the events are imaginary at best. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event become public, and I hope that will be soon, everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media. Our entire family is deeply sorry for the loss of Trayvon. We pray for the Martin family daily. We also pray that the community will grieve together and not be divided by more unwarranted hate. The Zimmerman family will have no further contact with the media prior to the resolution of the investigation. It would be greatly appreciated if the media would respect our privacy.”

            You might expect a father to defend his son. And you can’t believe a word he says. “At no time did George follow…” is obviously a lie by a father who cannot face the facts. Feel compassion for him 

          • Darkehawk

             “At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. ”

            Of course, I am going to believe this.  Even though I have heard the 911 call where the murderer himself said yes, he was following the kid.  (I think your quote is lacking in a department called credibility.

          • GeorgeBlackmore

             I think the point at which Lawyers will say that Zimmerman was within the legal limits of the Hold Your Ground Law was ‘post chase,’ they (Lawyers) will assert that it was after being struck by Trayvon Martin that Zimmerman (on the ground now) felt threatened, then discharged his sidearm under Hold your Ground Law killing Martin.
            The State of Florida and a number of other states are going to be forced to examine the rationale for having a Hold Your ground Statute on the books and if what they have legislated will in the end just become a convenient excuse for an angry gun owner to kill another person. At the very least even those morons in the Florida State House will be forced to look at the mechanics of the Hold your Ground Law’s language, and intent due to the Zimmerman-Martin case since legal advocates for Zimmerman, and legal advocates for Martin have indicated that the Hold your Ground Statute maybe applicable by either side.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of vision for where we ALL live in 2012, this is a place that has become much smaller and much, much, more complex in ALL directions requiring a more charitable heart from each of us. Look we have only one planet that we have to share with one another like it or not… So, why not like it and while you’re at it adjust that thinking a click and make room for everyone. At 51.5 years old I can remember when there were under two hundred million people in the United States I was a little boy then, but I have always watched the population numbers as they have increased over the years and our Country looked much different then than it does today the classroom’s were right about 90% of just one Race with all other race’s making up the remainder of the people… This Zero sum Capitalism combined with ALL or nothing politics practiced on the (R)ight in 2012 no longer fits within a modern multi-cultural paradigm. That too has to be adjusted if our Republic is going to survive, we are in our 24th decade and no Republic has ever made it to three hundred years. It’s time to dump the ‘me’ only, ‘WE’ is in charge of the script now but ‘me’ is in there. Unify~

            The ORIGINAL Jewish believer’s were Semite’s, which are Arab’s all of the WHITES who call themselves “JEWISH” by race are incorrect. There ARE NO WHITES FROM THE MIDDLE EAST genetically! Most came after after ’46 there is no controversy about this. It’s really a ridiculous claim for Euro-Jews to make that they some how belong to a NEW race of people. The Jewish Religion was ALL OVER the World like Catholicism is and was… This is a relatively new phenomenon really since the rise of television which is not coincidentally since WWII..

      Details, details. The “Trayvon got what he deserved” herd doesn’t need to be bothered by details and facts and nonsense like that. It’s very important for them to drag this kid’s reputation through the mud now that he’s dead and can’t defend himself.

      BTW — those who’ve been pointing to Trayvon’s recent school suspension might want to note that 1) he was an A and B student and 2) the suspension was for being tardy. 

      Oooo…. scary black kid was late to school, clearly he was guilty of SOMETHING, right?

      • AJCalvarese

        Suspended for ten days for being tardy? Riiiiight…… Or maybe it had something to do with, as his brother put it, him “swinging on a bus driver” http://i.imgur.com/iTmrv.jpg?1

        Details and facts, huh? Here are some facts:
        1) martin ran and zimmerman lost sight of him as heard on the 911 tape
        2) zimmerman had a large gash on the BACK of his head and a broken nose.
        3) the police have possession of zimmerman’s clothes that had a wet grass stain on the BACK
        4) witness that owned the home at the spot of the crime said martin was on top of zimmerman, assaulting him.
        5) zimmerman fired ONE shot which points more towards self-defense than cold-blooded murder

        I’m relying on the facts while most of the country is relying on emotion and media hyperbole.

           Read all this last week, babe.  Of course, now they’re saying it wasn’t violence but weed for which Trayvon was suspended.  Everybody is swinging from one thing to another, from what the teen wore, to tattoos, to his Twitter page…  What else can you gin up to try to make the boy look bad?  It only works for racists, fyi.  The rest of us see these things as typical teenage situations.  As for Martin potentially having attacked Zimmerman… if you LOST a fight that YOU started, that’s not self-defense.  He called 911 for how Tray looked.  Tray had done nothing wrong.  HE GOT OUT OF HIS CAR AND FOLLOWED HIM WITH A LOADED GUN!  How exactly is it that after Trayvon RAN away from Zimmerman, and CLEARLY was still followed by Zimmerman, was  Tray not allowed to “stand HIS ground?”

          • AJCalvarese

            Sorry, babe. But looking at the facts of the case doesn’t make me a racist. Being a white guy, I have no racial motive in a shooting between a hispanic and a black guy. This just came out today: http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-03-26/news/os-trayvon-martin-zimmerman-account-20120326_1_miami-schools-punch-unarmed-black-teenager

            You say he lost a fight that he started. Um…
            Where is the proof that zimmerman started the altercation? In the 911 call zimmerman loses sight of martin. Theres this preconceived notion that he chased martin through the neighborhood, gun in the air and accosted him, and THAT’S when martin fought back. but who punches a guy, whos pointing a gun at you, in the nose? I don’t believe it happened that way.

            If someone is watching me, that doesn’t give me the right to physically assault that person. I’m sorry but if I was a juror I could not find george zimmerman guilty.

        • commonsenseisdead76

           I’m not gonna bother with the race card. I’ll stick with one thing. George Zimmerman was told to “stay in his car.” He didn’t, and chose to get out and be a vigilante. There may or may not have been a scuffle, I wasn’t there. Clothes have been gathered as evidence, as well as firearm. And the survivor of this incident is in hiding. This doesn’t look like simple self defense looking at it this way. And one shot will kill a person. To quote you “1) martin ran and zimmerman lost sight of him as heard on the 911 tape” This is where a NW Block captain would say to dispatch ” He ran away and give the direction the person ran in to the dispatcher. Not go chase him. And we wouldn’t be discussing this at all. Now, would we?

          • AJCalvarese

            Well the reason george zimmerman is in hiding is because idiots like the black panthers are threatening his life.

            The 911 dispatch never told him to stay in the car. When zimmerman said he was following him, after martin ran, he said “you don’t need to do that.” to which zimmerman replied, (and this is very important), “OK.” Theres no evidence that zimmerman got out of his truck to do anything more than regain a visual on someone he thought (rightly or wrongly) looked suspicous. Where does it say that he had ANY contact with martin between the time he lost sight of him and the time he claims martin approached him from behind on the way back to his truck? That’s a widely held assumption that is unproven, or even contended by any of the witnesses, yet is hugely consequential to the case. My point is, no one has shown that zimmerman CHASED martin.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/X53OCUEYYXPDU7QFHZJCRUHJEU Mo

            Ah, but we have Zimmerman saying he got out of his car to check a street sign to get the name of the street he was on when Trayvon attacked him. Well, he’s the shittiest of “NW Captains” if he doesn’t know what street he’s on in a gated community with three streets.

      • Grace Stevens

         Thank you!  What #teamdueprocess wants to leave out is that Trayvon’s family, his supporters, his rallying troops are only asking for “due process,” something that WAS NOT happening until the family had help raising a national stink about it.  They are furious that like every other confessed killer (PRE-conviction), Zimmerman wasn’t taken into custody and questioned for hour upon hour so that his fresh words could all be taped and analyzed.  Simply put… he was treated differently than every other killer, and thanks to the 911 audio AND the hard, cold fact that everyone Z ever reported was black AND not guilty of anything, SANE folks can see there is a racial element to his stalking of a teen guilty of nothing, and inflaming of a non-existent problem.  Without the attention of the mayor and the governor, federal law enforcement may never have seen this case, and there may never have been a FAIR trial of the facts.  We’ve already lost valuable, on-the-scene evidence, and we’ve lost a youth who hadn’t committed even one crime.  This nation, at least the center and left-leaning part of it, are not willing to lose justice, too.

    • northernMD

      Where they not arrested?  If the cops said that they were free to go there would also be a national uproar.  The uproar here was that the guy was not arrested and that it took all this national attention for something to happen.  The feeling that most people have is that the police messed up but that had the rolls been reversed Trayvon would have been arrested.  Now, we can’t know the answer to that, but its not a crazy assumption. 

      • SnapsBacula

         You overlook & excuse the lack of media attention given to the kid from Kansas City being set on fire, because Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested yet?  What about the college student murdered in his dorm last weekend?  The three guys suspected of it haven’t been arrested.  Got an excuse for that one?

    They Trayvon Martain in shirtless pic is 20 and lives in Atlanta. If you goto the Atlanta FB you will see that shirtless pic and better pics that clearly show, this a different Trayvon.

    The Trayvon pic with the golden Grillz IS The Trayvon of this case. It is also from his FB page. Those who shamelessly took the picture, Dont care to point out the context. When he posted the pic he pointed out they were fake and he is making fun of how they look. But they didnt want to put the factoid out there. There were 40 pics there where tray looks normal but older than what keeps showing up in the media. For some reason those pics are not showing up. So there is unfairness going on, even though none of this bear facts on the case.

    3 questions, ready, here’s the 1st. Why Is George Zimmerman hiding if he feels so remorseful? Why not turn himself in? After all, he was simply defending himself. From an unarmed teenager with a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea. And why on earth would the police take the weapon used and not charge Mr. Zimmerman? OK one more. Why does everybody assume that because racism is hiding behind closed doors that it’s dead and gone?

    Racism is neither dead, nor simply black vs. white. If you think it is, you need to open your eyes and look around. And mainstream media is only on this case for ratings. It may ultimately result in justice, but I guarantee you, ratings go up every time Trayvon Martin’s name gets mentioned.

  • Keyser Soze

    So, how embarrassed are you that your blind eagerness to shower the public with racist misinformation blew up in your face? You were so HAPPY to have something bad to show about a 17 year old murder VICTIM that you didnt even bother to check your facts. So tell me, all you people who sent out tweets, are you going to retract them? Are you going to send out tweets telling everyone how wrong you were, and to ignore all future racist tweets from you?

    And for everyone saying “let the police do their jobs”, “hes innocent until proven guilty”. THATS the problem, the police didnt do their jobs. And he cant be proven guilty or innocent until there is a trial, and there cant be a trial until Zimmerman is arrested. Its the fact that he hasnt even been arrested that people are up in arms over. And he hasnt denied that he shot Trayvon Martin. No one has. His lawyer hasnt. George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, that is an acknowledged fact, contested by no one.

    But hey, if you want to get rid of all the “bias”, why dont you show a side by side picture of Travon Martin’s dead body next to a picture of George Zimmerman standing next to his retired judge daddy.

    Yep, thats right, George Zimmerman’s daddy is a retired judge. Now it makes sense doesnt it. Now you know why Zimmerman wasnt even arrested, and why despite his previous charges of resisting arrest and assaulting an officer, Zimmerman has been treated like royalty by the Florida police. Now you know why Zimmerman is untouchable in Florida. Daddy is a judge.

    Yes, it’s up to the courts to decide if Zimmerman is guilty or not – but he has to be arrested first, which should have been done the night of the shooting. THAT’S why it’s getting so much media attention – it is so obvious to everyone that it was a huge injustice that they took his word that he shot in self-defense without a trial or anything. He was told by the police to stand down and not follow Treyvon. HE chased Treyvon down in his car, got out and followed him, shot him, and now he’s claiming self-defense? He shouldn’t be walking around free. Neighborhood watchers shouldn’t be carrying guns anyway. They aren’t the police – they’re just supposed to keep an eye on things and call the REAL police if they see anything illegal going on. Since when is it illegal for a kid to have the hood up on his hoodie when it’s raining, or illegal for him to walk back to where his family is from the 7-Eleven carrying candy and a bottle of tea? The racial comments this upstanding neighborhood watcher was heard saying should have been enough for an investigation immediately.

  • BluedogAK

    “And why is this one being so heavily covered? Because of celebrity power assuming the possible guiltiness of one man. George Zimmerman may still not be innocent, but it’s up to the courts to decide that, not the media.”

    So why are you working so, so hard to re-make Trayvon Martin into someone who clearly deserved to die, no matter what the facts are? You went out and looked for something like this photograph, didn’t bother to check anything remotely like a “fact” (and yes, they aren’t unicorns, they exist), spread this attempted smear far and wide, and then published a BS “apology” still attached to this sanctimonious “let’s let the courts decide.” Why is this photo still up if you’re sorry?

    The reason people are so worked up is because until the press (not the lame-ass media like you) paid attention, there was never going to be a court process. No one was ever going to look twice at this incident. Certainly not the Sanford PD. 

    News flash (no irony intended): Just as your name says, YOU are the media–the loud, silly, blathering media that is making this 10 times worse, and for purely partisan reasons. You are not journalists, you haven’t the slightest pretense at a balance or bjectivity, and you really, really, really want Trayvon Martin to be guilty of something. Anything. 


  • nick catania

    You know what has to happen for Zimmerman to have his day in court?  He has to be arrested, which the undisputed facts in this case clearly support.  If Zimmereman is not charged it will show the ignorance and stupidity of the local police and the politicians who passed a law giving a free pass to wild, reckless trigger-happy sociopaths, not Spike Lee.  The irony is that this whole string was generated by a photo decrying ‘media bias’ that complained that the photo being shown of Zimmerman looked like a county orange mug-shot.  It was, but that’s because it was the only publicly-available photo of Zimmerman, from the time he was arrested for assaulting a police officer. Not to be confused with the time his ex-girlfriend had a restraining order court-issued against him.  And to show their disdain for media bias, they also posted a thuggish gangsta-looking photo of a young black kid that they lamely tried to pass of as Martin.  That it wasn’t even him was of no importance; any threatening looking black kid will do.  Who has the agenda now?

  • daisylee

    This photo is inaccurate. But even if Trayvon Martin looked like the guy on the right, so what? Even if he walked around with his underwear showing, even if there were public photos floating around of him giving the finger, NONE of that justifies his murder.

    Well if I remember my history of our country ” the US of A” the illegal trials and hanging of innocent (poor Whites) and many Negros which has plagued this country with so much pain and hate over the last 140 years with no answer from the local governments trying to solve it before it becomes national.  We have so many people that know these injustices are going on and will not help stop it until pressured by a national platform.  This case is a spill over from that past behaviors of communities and law enforcement.  Yes there are other murders throughout this country but most of them are handled in a timely manner by prosecutors who want to convict on the evidence alone not by governmental and community pressure. Their job is hard enough.  But a Prosecutor that is consumed with ambition further than his present job is a dangerous person ” he or she may want to win at any cost where truth doesn’t matter only winning.  Examples in Florida, Mississippi, Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Washington DC and so on.

    Meanwhile stalker and self-appointed watchman George Zimmerman has been incommunicado for a month now, no doubt on the advice of his retired-judge father, on a crash diet to make it look a little less like he was a human bowling ball capable of crushing the reed-thin Trayvon Martin by merely falling over on him.  

    If Trayvon Martin gained the upper hand however briefly in a struggle with George Zimmerman, it was probably because Zimmerman’s center of gravity was upset pretty easily because of his rotund shape.  Picture Humpty-Dumpty – or Tweedledee.

    A lot of people commenting have a bad interpretation of what self-defense is and how it is interpreting in this situation. Following someone is not against the law, not taking the advice of a 911 call operatoring is not against the law.
    Now who the aggressor is is yet to be determined, just because zimmerman was following martin does not make him the aggressor, it could be completely possible that martin felt his well being was being threatened by zimmerman following him. If in this state of fear he was the first party to use violence against the other, then that makes zimmerman the one who is under threat and therefore able to use deadly force.
    From reports it seems as tho that is what happened in which zimmerman is innocent under stand your ground law.

    Now whether or not the stand your ground law is morally or legally right is up to debate, but under contemporary law he is innocent.

I live in gilpin court in Richmond, va. I assume you are white; I’m not racist at all, just an assumption. If my neighborhood watch man (who is black) found you suspicious, and he did anything other than call the police (following, approaching, questioning, any type of communication) he is violating what crimestopper commercials and America’s most wanted always says: don’t approach the perp. If the police tell you to not to do so you are actually breaking the law; ‘police’ protect ‘policy’. What zimmerman did was act as a vigilante. If my neighborhood watchman killed your son who at the time (not saying this about your actual son, just a scenario) looked like he was high on meth and looking to rob a crackhead, but he just came from wally’s corner store with a peanut chew and a cold limpton ice tea, if he murdered your son after he unrightfully approached him, like a wannabe cop, you would want justice.

And the police letting a sticky situation blow up because of incompetency is also the facts.

    When you were a child did your parents tell you not to talk to stranger? Did they say if you someone is following you especially a strange man in a car be very careful because he may want to abduct you?Did you go through any “stranger danger” lessons at school. How long did those stranger danger message stay with you. Because they stayed with me until I was 19. I’m 20 now.These stranger danger messages drilled into all of our heads when we are children and had to be in Trayvon’s head when this man got in his car and followed him. They were in his head when this zimmerman got out of the car. If Trayvon pushed or hit Zimmerman a man who was stalking him and said leave me alone he is in the right.I am sure many parents have watched To Catch a predator and have seen news stories of kids being abducted. Contrary to popular belief Black kids are kidnapped and abducted too. For all we know Trayvon could have thought this man to be a pedophile.My mum told me if someone tries to follow you in the dark and gets way too close be ready to fight back. So you are not raped/killed/abducted by the sick people in this world.

    So to all the parents here claiming self-defense for Zimmerman. If your child was walking home and was being stalked in the dark by a strange man in a car then on foot would you like it. Would you tell them that it is ok to walk up to this stranger and strike up a conversation. In the dark when no one is around. What if your child got scared of this stranger that was getting close too close and they pushed him. Then the stranger felt threatened and held a gun to them and forced bound their hands and told them to get in the car. Is that still self defense?

    I understand the apology…but what do you do to prevent a mistaken photo that has already gone viral? Not everyone will follow the link.

    There are search tools which can track where a photo came from and a real journalist would have used it to find out this photo came from a neo-Nazi website. This is just proof fox news hires phony journalists like Michelle Malikin

    RESISTING ARREST/ DOMESTIC VIOLENCE/ ASSAULT ON AN OFFICER. All on Zimmermans record. Trayvon has no record. Just a train of fools on his dead back. Who’s the thug now?

    Daddy I hit my girlfriend and stalked her in her neighborhood. She put a restraining order can you help me? Daddy I headbutted a cop while resisting arrest can you help me since you’re a well connected retired judge in the very county I reside in?

    Amazing – so you publish a false photo, use the false photo to accuse the mainstream media of bias, and your readers lap it up.  Will they even get that YOU were the ones who were biased and false, not the mainstream media?

    I hope the parents of Trayvon Martin will sue Sanford Police dept. it want bring back their son but it will teach them a lesson. They might as well took the gun and shoot the boy themselves. George Zimmer is a child murderer and he will go to hell and everyone that will follow an out of control idiot.

    George Zimmerman is a wanna be cop that took an innocent child’s life for nothing. I hope and pray God has mercy on your soul. You will burn for this. Tell you daddy and your brother they will too. They are liars and they will go to hell too.

    To Sanford Florida police. You all need to pay what you done to this child. You will. What if this was your son. Now what if it was your black son and some fool shot him. Now tell me is this fair. To the parents of Trayvon I will be praying for you until they put that devil in jail …

    if you’ve got nothing constructive to say, nothing to do but troll, go spout your nonsense somewhere else. you don’t deserve to be given the time of day, and i’m finished with you.

    No pictures of the crime scene, no medical records since Zimmerman refused treatment, no drug/alcohol tests on the shooter (but of course the victim was tested), and now not only is Zimmerman the only one who gets to tell his story, but he can basically say whatever he wants since there is no evidence to contradict him. Constructive facts.

    Oh, and it’s not trolling if it’s pointing out an obvious fact. A fact so obvious that others have noted it as well…
