RHCP’s Flea turns to Twitter to find out ‘what’s going on with that guy who murdered Trayvon’

Low information Chili Pepper.

We last heard from Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea when he jumped aboard the celebri-ghoul train after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. “Ban all guns,” he tweeted. “Change the Constitution.”

Now he’s declared George Zimmerman, whose name he apparently doesn’t even know, “that guy who murdered Trayvon Martin.” And he wants to know what’s up with Zimmerman these days.

Hey, Flea, ever hear of a newspaper? There’s also this newfangled thingamajig called “the Google.” It’s full of “links” to “news” and stuff. Or, you know, you could ask your Twitter followers for an update and retweet the responses that fit your gun-grabbing narrative.

Which is exactly what Flea did. Here’s what Flea retweeted:

Why bother with a trial? Now that Flea knows the deal with the “over zealous security guard” who “stalked” and “murdered” a “15 year old,” case closed.

We’ll leave you with Flea’s deep thoughts on humanity.

    i got 2nd amendment rights, support them. i understand that the media portrayed this case as such because the victim was black, and George Zimmerman (of mixed Latino descent) could be portrayed as white, i really get at all that.

    ….what i dont understand is this rush to support Zimmerman from the right. i mean i keep reading Trayvon was a thug etc, which you know might be true, but the fact is that on this night he was walking to his dad’s girlfriend’s house with some skittles. if zimmerman hadnt decided to follow him, if zimmerman hadnt decided to get out of his car this wouldnt have happened. You know what Trayvon, might have started the fight like Zimmerman said, probably did, but he was being followed ! What would you do if someone is obviously following you? is it 2nd Degree murder, i dont know, but im just as tired of the media portraying Trayvon as innoncent, as i am everyone on the right trying to claim Zimmerman is some angel.

    personally, do i think Zimmerman is racist? no, i dont. do i think Zimmerman followed Trayvon cause he’s black and fit the stereotype of the burglars in the past, yes. Trayon might have thought being a “gangsta” was cool, he was suspended from school, smoked etc i get that, by that night he was a 17year old walking home that was followed by a man with a gun.

    • NRPax

      According to reports, Zimmerman had stopped following him. Trayvon jumped on him from behind and pushed him to the ground. So here we have a situation where someone has knocked you down and is beating you (Rather badly if Zimmerman’s pictures are any indication.) and you have a gun.

      I don’t see a “rush” to support him. But I do see a rush to support Trayvon from the media.

      • Harry A

        Zimmerman followed him around in the car, and then got out of the car and followed. we can agree on that right?

        even if he had stopped following him, my point is that i dont think he should have been doing it in the first place. personally, im not comfortable with this idea that we think its socially acceptable to follow people around in this manner. ive had people follow me around for, its a really uncomfortable feeling.

        just imagine you see someone following you in a car, and then they get out of their car and continued to follow you. are you OK with that? Trayvon clearly saw Zimmerman following him. he probably went up started an argument and threw a punch, and that is NOT the way to handle the situation at all and it cost him his life. My only point is can we please stop treating Zimmerman like he is somehow without fault. If Zimmerman wasnt following him this wouldnt have happened. If Zimmerman had stayed in the car this wouldnt have happened.

        in my opinion, i do see a rush to support Zimmerman as well. I think its being done in an effort to counter the medias support of Trayvon, i understand it guess. i just dont like either of them.

        • NRPax

          Zimmerman followed him around in the car, and then got out of the car and followed. we can agree on that right?

          Yes. And Zimmerman was acting in his capacity as a neighborhood watchman. Can we agree on that?

          • Harry A

            yup we can agree on that too, Zimmerman certainly meant well.

            but just like the police can’t follow you around because they think you might possible look suspicious, i dont think neighborhood watchmen have that right as well. i dont like this idea that we’re extending rights and responsibility to people designated as neighborhood watchmen that police dont even have.

          • NRPax

            Have you noticed each and every post that has pointed out how Zimmerman stopped following Trayvon when he was told to do so by the 911 dispatcher?

          • Harry A

            yes i have. by that point trayvon could have already been hidden in the bushes waiting for Zimmerman to walk back by him.

            would i be correct it saying that our difference lies in the fact that you think as neighborhood watchman it was OK for Zimmerman to follow him in the first place? we seem to be in agreement about pretty much everything else. we agree about the media bias, im assuming we agree that once the fight started Zimmerman was in fear for his life, justified shooting.

            so im assuming our only difference is whether we think it was OK for Zimmerman to follow him in the beginning, which i believe it wasnt. so i think Zimmerman shares some responsibility in this fight starting if that is the disagreement theres probably nothing we can say to convince each other opposite.

            **sidenote often times when i find myself disagreeing with people here the attacks and name calling seem to fly. id just like to thank you for not doing that.

          • NRPax

            I have no knowledge about the laws governing neighborhood watch programs so I can’t answer how right or wrong his actions were. As for the rest, it’s up for the courts to decide.

            As for the side note: You’ve kept it civil with me, I’m happy to extend the same courtesy.

          • Michael Rice

            You do nto have the right to attack someone because they are folowing you. Yes, the police can and do follow people who look supicous. I can do it, too.
            Perhaps the kid should have called the police or jut kept walking.

          • Calcat36

            BUT then the dispatcher also began to question Zimmerman, (paraphrasing here) “Where is he now?””Can you still see him?” I find that odd. Why say stop, and then ask for updates as to his whereabouts? My meaning here is that maybe dispatch was not sure about what instructions to give…

          • http://ClashDaily.com/ Donald Joy

            Yup, except it wasn’t a 911 dispatcher, and he wasn’t told not to follow Martin–he was merely told that the police didn’t need him to follow Zimmerman, to which he replied, “okay.”

          • Calcat36

            There is no rush from the right as you describe it. And by default you indict the leftists for their RUSH TO CONVICT ZIMMERMAN! The facts so far are this, there was a shooting. There is a dead body. There is now a person standing accused of a crime. There will be a trial where the facts come out and ultimately a judgment made. The question here is, and should apply to BOTH sides, is why a news outlet would selectively EDIT evidence to lead to an opinion. That is wrong, and it is the left doing it to support an agenda. The words, the EXACT words they used to smear Zimmerman were “WHITE Hispanic.” That is race baiting and tampering with the jury pool. I rush to Zimmerman’s defense of his civil rights (yes whites and hispanics have them too) and his Constitutional right to a FAIR trial. That is where evidence will be submitted under oath. If these leftist news journalists were under oath for all they say, they would ALL be in jail right now! By the way, why is there no aggressive reporting on black on black shootings and killings?

          • Harry A

            besides my use of the word rush, (i apologized for it but that comment is probably miles below by now since i started this debate lol), we actually agree on everything. the media, we all know how it works. they saw a story they could sensationalize and sell and they all jumped on it. i like to say news is sold, not told these days.

          • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

            The only “rush” from the right is to withhold judgment and wait to see what the facts are. In this sense, for once, we ARE being the “reactionaries” the “Professional Left” (as Vice Dear Leader once called it) enjoys calling us; indeed, we are reacting to the hysterical frenzy of the Left and the Collaborationist Media in the wake of a young black man being shot by someone who did not look much like him. Evidently it’s OK when shooter and shootee look more alike than not, as we rarely hear a peep from the same quarters regarding the hundreds of young black men being shot regularly in Chicago and LA.

          • Calcat36

            We actually agree on nothing youngster. I know how the leftist propaganda machine, described as news media, works. And it is successful because of young skulls full of mush like you. You are only parroting the leftist drivel that has been reported to set treyvon up as a VICTIM. News is not sold, my confused friend. News is reported based on facts available. The problem is, leftist propaganda outlets describe themselves as news outlets and young drones like you fall for the lies. It started way before you have been taught with Walter Cronkite. He was the first one since Joseph Goebbels to use his “journalist skills” to tell others what to think. And the mindless followed him. That’s when REPORTERS died and JOURNALISTS rose. Your use of rush isn’t offensive. Your use of “conservatives rush” is. You ignore the fact that LIBERALS RUSHED to convict Zimmerman in the court of public opinion, yet you failed to ask them or YOURSELF…Why, why would the leftists do such a thing. I do give you “props” or one thing, and one thing only. You have attempted to debate in a civil manner. Speaks well about you. However, try,just try, to understand what a growing number of people have written to you here. Conservatism is NOT what you have been programed to believe that it is.

          • Harry A

            “understand that the media portrayed this case as such because the victim was black, and George Zimmerman (of mixed Latino descent) could be portrayed as white, i really get at all that”

            “im just as tired of the media portraying Trayvon as innoncent, as i am everyone on the right trying to claim Zimmerman is some angel”

            i think ive addressed the media in my first post, and in many subsequent posts. so i dont understand your whole issue with that.

            but i won’t be replying to you anymore because frankly, i think your really rude. you acknowledge that ive been civil and yet you address me as having a “skull full of mush”.

            how am a parroting everything the left says? i agree with most of what people say here, (unless commenters on twitchy are the left to you). the only thing thats difference is that i thought, Zimmerman following Trayvon meant he shared some blame in the situation. many people on here have disagreed with me, we’ve explained why we feel that way and moved on. but you sir/madam are the only on that feels it necessary to be an A$$.HOLE about it. you under the impression insulting me is going to help you make your point, because it doesnt. dont bother replying to this, because i wont be replying to you.

            No we can’t. Guns not allowed by neighborhood watch.

          • Calcat36

            Yes they are, in Zimmerman’s neighborhood anyway. If it were not, Zimmerman would have been charged with that crime. So your neighborhood watch zones are “gun free zones?”

          • $24698634

            According to the US Neighborhood Watch Manual, volunteers should not carry weapons or confront suspicious people.  GZ got a pass on the weapon because he had a concealed carry permit.

          even if he had stopped following him, my point is that i dont think he should have been doing it in the first place. personally,

          Fine…but Trayvon should not have intiated a criminal assault on Zimmerman. Sorry, it’s just that simple.
          1. It’s not illegal to get out of your car
          2. It’s not illegal to follow someone in your own neighborhood, given that, if you are part of a neighborhood watch, part of your job is to “WATCH” for suspicious activity; so far Zimmerman looks to be in the clear–what ‘crime’ has he committed?
          3. It is illegal to commit assault if your life is not in danger. So far, Trayvon is the only criminal in the scenario.
          4. It is not illegal to shoot someone in the course of defending your life — if the testimony and eyewitness acounts hold (nothing presented so far shows otherwise), the only person that committed any crime in this case is Trayvon.

    • CatHerder

      What I can’t understand is why it’s taking so long to get this case to trial, if there is going to be one. Not that I expect that to shut the race-baiters up, mind you, no matter how it pans out.

      • NRPax

        I think that the problem is finding a venue where Zimmerman can have a fair trial.

        • Calcat36

          That’s why the rev Al Sharleton got involved. To taint as much of the jury pool as he possibly could. They should move the trial to a different jurisdiction. @Blake, OR they could find many guilty white liberals. Same difference

          • NRPax

            Makes me wonder if we’re going to have Car-B-Qs if Zimmerman is found innocent.

          • Calcat36

            In Florida, probably not. But in LA, any excuse is a good excuse for burning and pillaging! And the LAPD there, to my IGNORANT liberal friend Mr. Marty McFly, does not ask questions first. They SHOOT FIRST! Ahhh to be 19 and a wiz kid again… If they do go all Car-B-Q NRpax, let’s drink a beer for each burning car!

      • Blake Waymire

        I suspect it’s taking so long because there’s so little evidence to actually get Zimmerman convicted. Of course, if they just want a conviction, all they’d have to do is pack the jury with blacks.

    • John (it true me am)

      You over simplify it, most conservatives don’t “support” Zimmerman like the liberals do Trayvon. The most common refrain is about the liberal cry of racism in every action, and in the beginning to let the facts come out. Remember the media and elected officials alike had declared Trayvon a martry and Zimmerman to be Hitler 2.0 within an hour of the shooting. It has never been about defending Zimmerman, but about calling the left out on their Trayvon zealotry.

      Bottom line: If facts (had) come out that said Zimmerman had acted completely wrong and was a blatant racist, the conservative response wouldn’t have been denial(as the liebral is to the contrary) but a shrug and a “that’s all we were waiting to hear before casting unilateral judgement”.

      • Kabong30

        You’ve touched on something here that I think needs to be pointed out. Liberals blindly support things and people that go along with their party line. If it comes out that something immoral or illegal has gone on, they attempt to hide it and spin it. Any conservative “support” for Zimmerman that I have seen is really only a plea to stop the spin and let the facts come out. And the facts that are coming out are not good for the liberal narrative. But that blind support kicks in and rather than just allow our legal process to do what it’s supposed to do they scream and yell and try to influence that as well. More and more liberalism = emotions and conservatism = logic.

        • Calcat36

          Kabong, Conservatives think. Liberals feel. Conservatives are guided by principle. Liberals are guided by emotions. Conservatives consider the facts of the case. Liberals react to the “nature of the charge.” Conservatives seek punishment for criminals. Liberals seek understanding…

      • v1cious

        ” The most common refrain is about the liberal cry of racism in every action, and in the beginning to let the facts come out.”.

        The fact everyone seems to be missing here is that they weren’t going to charge Zimmerman with anything at all. Had there not been a public outcry, this entire incident would’ve been swept under the rug.

        Also, going back to Marty’s point: Why did Zimmerman get out of the car at all? He knew the police were already on the way. You’re gonna tell me he didn’t have any intentions of pursuing Martin? Keep in mind that Zimmerman has a history of doing this same exact thing before.

        • Hiraghm

          So what? He’s part of a neighborhood watch. If the dipstick kid had a “right” to amble around the neighborhood at night, so did Zimmerman.
          They were quite rightly not going to charge Zimmerman.

        • Calcat36

          Well, dear liberal friend, there is a huge outcry over the assassination of an American ambassador and 3 American Patriots, yet you leftists continue to sweep it under the rug. Maybe because the perp in this case is a half-black American President who, when the phone rang at 3 am was too sleepy to do the right thing?

          Why did Zimmerman get out of the car at all? He knew the police were already on the way

          Okay, let’s play that game: Why did Trayvon commit the crime of assault?

      • Harry A

        honestly, i agree with you. i know why the media did it in this case, the same reason it happened in with the girl who claimed the lacrosse team raped her (i think it was duke, could be wrong). it gives them a sensational story to sell. and i said that i dont believe Zimmeriman is a racist. i think the cry of racism is far over blown, i get that, i really do. in my original post maybe i spent too much time talking about stereotyping and race, i just want to clarify i dont think he’s a racist. as black person who has experienced actual racism i find this constant cry of racism offensive.

        However, im just saying you know maybe Zimmerman shouldnt have followed the guy. If Zimmerman hadnt gotten out of his car this whole situation wouldnt have happened, i think we can all agree about that. I just personally think Zimmerman has a large share of the blame here.

        • NachoCheese (D)

          Zimmerman shouldnt have followed the guy

          And he stopped when the 911 operator told him that it wasn’t necessary and he was returning to his car when Trayvon attacked him.

          I’m just saying that maybe if Trayvon hadn’t attacked him, Trayvon would be alive today. I just personally think that Trayvon has the blame here.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

          I believe you’re being very reasonable–or making a very honest attempt to be. But your emotion is clouding your reasoning.

          I’ll just reply thusly: If Trayvon hadn’t assaulted (a felony by the way) Zimmerman, none of this would have happened.

          And you really need to stop with the “i think we can all agree about that” when pushing your own viewpoint. That’s not the way to win an argument or bring people around, simply by abandoning their veiwpoint FOR them and appropriating their agreement with you, when no such agreement has taken place.

    • NachoCheese (D)

      do i think Zimmerman followed Trayvon cause he’s black and…

      It’s just too bad that the unedited 911 call refutes this little slander, now isn’t it?

      • Guest

        come on we all know thats why he did it, im not saying its the worst thing in the world, im not calling him a racist (i know he didnt call him a coon, im well aware of that). but he saw a black kid who looked suspicious. i dont think theres a white kid would have raised such suspicions.

        • NachoCheese (D)

          come on we all know thats why he did it

          “We all” don’t know any such thing. You may assume that. You may infer that. But prefer to listen to the 911 call which contains his stated reasons for suspicion. And it didn’t contain anything about race until the 911 operator specifically asked him about it.

          “He saw a black kid in his neighborhood” (which had been recently suffering a rash of break-ins) walking around in the rain.

          Also, you state “if zimmerman hadnt decided to follow him”, well he did until the 911 operator told him he didn’t need to do that, then he stopped and was returning to his car when Trayvon attacked him.

        • Calcat36

          Who is we? You got a mouse in your pocket? Who shot Hadiya Pendleton? Why is there no aggressive assault to find out? Because a black thug gang banger shot an innocent black 15 year old girl.

          So tell me why “we all know” why the thug shot her…

          You also conveniently FORGET to remember that George Zimmerman was well known to the police. He made around 87 calls to them reporting suspicious activity during his “watches.” And guess what… the “suspects” were not all black! He also worked with poor black kids teaching them to get better grades in school. To paint him as a racist is not fair. This also goes to show that you only remember and focus on what you want to believe.

          And as far as the “coon” thing goes, your leftist liberal press TRIED to stick Zimmerman with that! Who are the real racists?

        • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

          come on we all know thats why he did it,

          You shouldn’t do this…it’s a logical fallacy. Don’t take what I said as an insult…not meant to be. But you don’t help your case or explain your viewpoint very well when you do this.

          Part of the reason it’s a fallacy, is that there is nothing that backs up the sentiment you provided, but you want it to be true and then project it on to the rest of us.

          Nothing provided in any witness testimony or in evidence shows that race was a motivating factor for Zimmerman. As has been stated already, the unedited audio to the 911 operator in fact makes the opposite case. He never mentioned race until it was coaxed out of him by the operator.

    • Catchance

      I believe that you’re trying to be open-minded, but I think you’re incorrect on a couple of counts. First, most on the right aren’t “rushing” to support Zimmerman. We’re waiting to get the facts, but we are sick and tired of the media and the left (but I repeat myself) immediately assuming that Trayvon was completely innocent and it was due to racism. (See NBC’s version of the 911 call, in which they deliberately edited out the dispatcher’s question as to race.) Second, it now appears that Zimmerman had stopped following Trayvon, who then hid in the bushes and attacked Zimmerman.

      • Harry A

        can i say first, thank you, for noticing that im trying to be open minded. from the tone of some of the replies i feel like some people have pegged me as one of those who agree with everything in the media, and that im certainly not.

        i think your right in how you’ve summed up the support for Zimmerman. i dont think my use of the word “rushing” was appropriate to describe what i was trying to say. i think we’re in agreement here. waiting to get the facts is so necessary. (interesting how the media can ask 21 questions to the police about where the investigation is going to ascertain the facts, but cant ask them about Benghazi and dont seem to care about Chicago but i digress).

        i think one of my main points is that im sort of not comfortable with this idea that following somebody around is ok. in the call zimmerman says that “now hes just staring at me”, so he knew Trayvon had seen him and was following him. i dont like this implicit idea that its OK to follow people around. Just like we all agree the govt shouldnt be following us, neither should Zimmerman think its ok.

        if you see someone follow you, and then they get out of their car to continue, to do so, i feel like hiding and confronting them is understandable. im not saying its the right thing to do, but its understandable.

        • Calcat36

          When you have your own home, children, and personal possessions, you will feel different about 19 year old strange punks roaming around your neighborhood. Treyvon was no saint. He did drugs, had residue in his system, and was found to have burglar tools in his backpack at school where he was suspended from. If anyone fits the description of “should NOT be roaming around MY neighborhood at night” it is him regardless of his skin color. And if someone stopped an attempted break in by a thug punk, that would also be a good thing.

    • VerminMcCann

      “….what i dont understand is this rush to support Zimmerman from the right.”

      There was no “rush to support Zimmerman.” The story only came to national attention after the racebaiters had gotten ahold of it and declared Zimmerman guilty by reason of not conforming to the narrative. The reaction you observed was not a rush to support Zimmerman; it was a rush to reject a politically motivated, racist prosecution of an obviously innocent person.

      • Harry A

        said in another post, but ill say here again, my use of the word rush wasnt appropriate to describe what im trying to say. I’m in agreement with everything you say up to persecution. i dont feel that Zimmerman is an “obviously innocent person”, you cant go following people and not expect for them to confront you. does that mean Trayvon needed to fight the man and throw him to the ground, no, thats not an appropriate response. but this idea that Zimmerman is just some innocent person attacked for no reason, i dont agree with. was the attack justified, no; is there a reason behind it, in my opinion yes.

        • Calcat36

          Your innocent little boy had mouth, and knew English, right? Follow me, and I will stop and ask you if I can help you. You don’t know if Treyvon was itching for a confrontation. By his father’s admittal, Treyvon was not known to the community so what would the harm be in saying that he was headed to his dad’s house? Remember now, Zimmerman by default, was watching over treyvon’s father as well, as part of the community. Zimmerman was well known as a watch person. Why didn’t the father introduce treyvon to the watch guy? Maybe they are the the racists who dislike “white hispanics?” Do you really want to go down the speculation rabbit hole?

          I didn’t say persecution. I said prosecution.

          If there were any actual evidence of his guilt the lynch mob wouldn’t be forced to invent it. The fact of the matter is, the authorities with authority to investigate the case and decide whether a crime had been committed did so and decided not to file charges. The lynch mob got ahold of the case and began lying about it as flagrantly, loudly, and often as possible until they got their witch hunt.

          And by the way, it’s perfectly legal both to observe someone from a distance and to approach someone and ask him a question, and you do not forfeit your right to self defense by doing either.

    • W Randall

      Don’t say “the fact is” and then spew a bunch of false information, unfounded BS and personal opinions. “The fact is” that half of the people defending Trayvon don’t know anything about the situation, the neighborhood, the history of crime in that area or any other “facts” for that matter.

      • Calcat36

        Fact is W, Most people agree, as do many Americans, that you have a valid point! When liberals want to validate their bogus assumption… guess which phrase the start out with… Excellent post W.

    • Paladin

      Another thing to consider, Marty, is that NBC actually edited the 911 footage to make it seem that Zimmerman was profiling Trayvon because he was black.

      “The right” may seem like it’s rushing to support Zimmerman (there are a few who are) but I believe it’s more accurate to describe it as countering a false narrative by the media before the facts come out. If the media tries to sacrifice a persons freedom and reputation to advance their narrative, it needs to be resisted.

      In my opinion, now that more facts have come out, it really does appear that Brian Zimmerman was justified in using deadly force. We’ll see what happens at the trial.

      • Harry A

        i should probably learn to express my thoughts better, cause this was actually a lot of what i meant. (i had just pulled an all nighter to finish an economics paper, i just hope i expressed my thoughts a little better in that lol)

        but yes, i agree with everything you said about the media and the narrative. i also agree that using deadly force in the fight was probably justified at that point.

        one thing i still think is that it was Zimmerman’s actions in large part that lead to this fight. i just dont see a lot of people noting that at all, (maybe its because they dont agree with me idk). Zimmerman wasn’t some innocent person who Trayvon just randomly decided to attack, he was following the guy. when you go around following people i think you put your at risk of confrontation.

        • Paladin

          I think I see what you mean.

          Every confrontation has someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some are innocent bystanders, some people take risks . True, if I go to check out someone who I think is up to no good, and they really are up to no good, well I probably will have a fight on my hands.
          I agree that Zimmerman made decisions that put him in that situation, but I also believe Trayvon bears the greater responsibility for his own death. When he attacked Zimmerman, he crossed the line. Zimmerman had to defend himself or put himself at the mercy of what turned out to be a thug.

    • TocksNedlog

      The ‘rush to support him’ was due to the immediate call by the left to deny a citizen the right to self-defense.

      • Harry A

        agree with that 100%.

        • Calcat36

          As do I. When Al Sharleton gets involved, all credibility is lost. Ask Tawana Brawley.

      • Calcat36

        And then the cry to disarm the American people, denying their God given Second Amendment Rights!

    • Hiraghm

      If I was 17 and an adult was following me, I’d either run or scream for a cop.

      If I was 17 and an adult began questioning me, I would politely answer his questions, *particularly* if he identified himself as a security guard or neighborhood watch.

      The one thing I *wouldn’t* do as a 17 year old is attack an ADULT.
      Zimmerman’s no angel, but assault is no proper response to being followed or questioned… by an adult.

      The guilty party in all of this is Trayvon’s parents.
      Good thing the man had the gun, or he’d be the one on the slab and we’ve have another gangbanger with a record.

      • Harry A

        i agree thats probably the responsible, for lack of a better word, response, but do you think that it really should be necessary. As a 19year old im not comfortable with this idea that i need to be answering any questions about what I’m doing because an adult is questioning me, its none of your business.

        I dont think the feds have the right to questioning me unless they have proof I’m breaking the law, i dont think the police have the right to question me unless theres proof i committed a crime, and i certainly DO NOT think that some neighborhood watch person has the right to ask me what im doing. i completely disagree with that “politely” answer his questions, no, its none of their business.

        again i agree 100% they he shouldnt have attacked Zimmerman, but i feel like confrontation is a risk that Zimmerman put himself in when he decided to go about following people that night.

        • Calcat36

          You are 19? That explains your ignorance. The police do not NEED proof that you committed any crime. They only NEED to be suspicious of you, or determine that you fit a description of a wanted punk. They do not have to tell you ANYTHING when they apprehend you, so if you run your mouth or resist, guess what happens! You get yourself a good beat down, or worse, dead in custody. So yeah, dude, you may have been right, but now because you failed to cooperate, you became DEAD RIGHT.

          Again, Zimmerman followed many people, at least 87 times. There have not been 87 dead bodies.

          • Harry A

            Keyword here: “Police”. There’s a huge difference between an officer of the law asking you to stop, and being chased by some neighborhood vigilante.

          • Calcat36

            Then why didn’t the POLICE restrain him from doing so? They had 87 prior chances. Somehow, this one thug had an attitude, like you. Besides, oh brain dead one, there are laws that support “citizen’s arrests” on the books. Look them up before you make a bigger fool of yourself.

Until then no one will take you guys seriously!

          • v1cious

            Whatever dude, I’ve seen your other posts about the “Mooslims”.
            Moving along… Amazing how you keep using the words “Thug” and “Gangbanger”. One can also paint George Zimmerman as an crazed vigilante, based on all information we know.

          • Calcat36

            Yeah, I do not agree with mooslims because of Surah (9:5) “fight and slay the pagans (or infidels or unbelievers) wherever you find them.” What the hell does that have to do with this? Liberals like you have tried and FAILED to paint Zimmerman as a thug, a racist, and a “White Hispanic” based on the LIES the liberal media tried to get away with that YOU consider the truth. Again, with the “we.” You must have a mouse in your pocket too! Zimmerman was well known to the police (obviousIy you missed this comment many, many times that I have used it!) for 87 prior incidents that did not result in death or assault! I use the word thug often where it fits. I have not referred to Treyvon as a gang banger. I have replied to those that correctly have. Treyvon had a bad academic record, used and abused illegal substances, and was in possession of burglary tools long before Zimmerman squashed his useless thug life, justifiably! So you stand corrected, only brain dead skulls full of mush could paint Zimmerman as a vigilante. If he were such, the police would have stopped him at least 87 times before the thung azz punk martin was “feeling lucky that day!” And now he is dead for his thug life style. Wanna see my pictures of moe-hammered?

            My reference to “gang banger” was about a black gangsta thug that shot Hadiya Pendleton in cold blood. Se was a black 15 year old girl that performed at Soetoro’s 2nd inauguration, you idiot. So you have no idea about black on black MURDER because your plantation mastah’s have not told you about them! Thanks for exposing your racial hatred,bias, and your ignorance! Put a bounty on that black shooter’s head and show some consistency if you can think for yourself!

          • v1cious

            I don’t recall saying Zimmerman was a racist. In fact, I recall he voted for Obama. You however, seem intent on portraying a 17 year old kid as some low-life gangbanger that deserves to be dead.

          • Calcat36

            I do not portray the thug that way, meaning deserving death, unless the thug committed an assault where the person the thug was curb smashing an innocent person’s skull into the pavement had a reasonable fear for his life… OH WAIT, THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED! You leftists seem to portray Zimmerman as a racist who shot a virgin in cold blood. Treyvon was a low life. He did drugs, he was kicked out of school for… wait for it… being a low life in possession of illegal drugs and burglary tools. Low-lives do as low-lives are. Then the low-life assaulted a well known neighborhood watch citizen as described above. A neighborhood watch citizen that, mind you, TREYVON’S FATHER NEVER LODGED A COMPLAINT AGAINST FOR RACISM! Or any other nefarious act! Are you sure you want to keep going down this rabbit hole, Alice?

            Your liberal media tried portraying the thug as a child, by showing an outdated picture of the thug. Once the REAL visage appeared in the press, your virgin became more of a credible villain. You leftists went and screwed yourselves by trying to paint a false picture of the thug. Do you remember the “little humble boy’s” facebook entries? Stay out of the rabbit hole. Call a spade a spade and move on.

            I portrayed the black gang banger thug who shot Hadiya Pendleton, a 15 year old black girl that attended soetoro’s 2nd inauguration, properly. She was shot dead by a black gang banger as she was waiting for her bus to take her home. Since then, the racist school has made the decision to let innocent kids wait inside the building until the bus comes so they are not killed by black gang bangers in cold blood. How white of them, huh? Oh yeah, it is a democrat controlled minority school, so you cannot blame crackers for this black on black gun violence! Try reading COMPREHENSION instead of reading only what you want to see concerning my posts. Where is your outcry to bring that black thug to justice for killing a young black female? Look up hypocrite in the dictionary. You will find your racist self there.

          • v1cious

            Sheesh dude, you’re really angry. Got some deep-seated issues you’d like to talk about? Like I said, I don’t believe George Zimmerman is a racist. I do however, find it comical that you’re doing the exact same thing you accuse the left of doing (I’m Independent, so there goes another one of your assumptions), and trying to create your own narrative.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

      I believe there is less a rush to support Zimmerman and more a rush to support common sense and faith in the justice system. Proclaiming a man guilty before trial, fabricating evidence, and inflaming passions are generally frowned upon by all but the most ardent liberals.

    Marty, if you were 17 and thought you were being followed at night, by yourself, would you turn into Chuck Bronson on that person? Btw, following someone isn’t a crime. It doesn’t give someone the right to curb stomp you. trayvon wanted to be a tough guy, and he died for it.

    • Harry A

      sorry i just saw this, first, yeah…no idea who Chuck Bronson is lol.

      when i was 16 and on my way to my girlfriends house their neighborhood watchman followed me, and told me it was cause i looked “suspicious” and “up to no good” and thought we would play 21 questions. an argument then ensued but, i was raised in such a way that one knows not to go around throwing punches. [i was playing snake on my phone and listening to my iPod]. situations like this have happened to me probably a dozen times.

      its stories like that which is why im sensitive to this idea that we find it socially acceptable to follow people around. its disconcerting to me because ive been that person followed in a car, and then some random person who i dont know feels they have the right to question me. but we cant agree about everything now can we?

      • Calcat36

        Dude, Zimmerman was no “random person.” He was well known watch. Treyvon, unless attacked, had no right to physically attack Zimmerman. Treyvon may have been followed but there was no immediate physical threat. Now you admit that treyvon threw the first punch. He created the situation. And you omit the fact that Treyvon REACHED for Zimmerman’s gun. Zimmerman DID NOT draw first. that’s 2 strikes homeboy against your “victim.”

        • Harry A

          i guess this “homeboy” who has been followed around by multiple neighborhood watchmen and have had them attempt to question him just feels different. you seem to think thats OK, i dont. its evident that there wont be any movement between the two of us on this point, so we just disagree.

          but hey im just an “ignorant”, “arrogant”, “skull full of mush” “punk” aren’t i? my favourite insult though was when you called me a “liberal”. someone has one disagreement with a conservative view and now im some liberal. its people like you that originally stopped me from commenting on sites like twitchy, comments sections can be the place for civil debate. that seems to be below. today you reminded me why i stopped using the comment section of blogs last year, and as such i will not be replying again.

        Actually,

        We’re supporting the victim, George Zimmerman, who was attacked by a wannabe thug who was probably doped up on ‘lean’ … a concoction of Arizona watermelon tea, Skittles and cough syrup. ( http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/06/what_the_media_choose_not_to_know_about_trayvon.html)

        Martin should have just gotten his butt home and told someone about “the strange dude” following him, if he was concerned.

        But it appears that he decided to confront and sucker-punch ZImmerman, as Martin did to the bus driver previously.

        But heck, don’t let the facts get in the way. Go ahead…judge someone by the color of the skin rather than the content of their character or their actions.

  • michael s

    Even the lead investigator for the prosecution, Dale Gilbreath, has sworn under oath that there is no evidence against Zimmerman. Yet this political railroading of Zimmerman continues. Zimmerman gets his immunity from prosecution hearing on April 22nd; if there is ANY justice, the case will be dismissed due to his merely using justifiable deadly force to defend his own life, and he will walk away. Trayvon Martin was not 15, he was 17, 6 feet tall, and a violent criminal thug who attacked the smaller Zimmerman and was in the process of bashing Zimmerman’s head into the concrete, then reached for Zimmerman’s gun when Zimmerman’s shirt rode up and exposed it.

    Was scratching my head trying to figure out who this tool was asking the question. RHCP meant nothing to me. Relevance and fame are fleeting.

    Most people I see discuss the events of that night are woefully ill informed as to what facts are even known. Real problem started when media thought they had a white (hispanic it turns out) perp and a dead black teenager. The pile on got messier and messier, culminating in NBC’s altered 911 transcripts that suggested GZ was racially motivated (that got an unnamed producer fired-so they say). Even the photos that were taken of GZ were ignored, then published as low rez images that conveniently hid the injuries suffered (and it was the lack of obvious injuries that had most of the rabid Trayvon supporters claiming murder).

    All in all, a tragedy, compounded by a rush to poor judgement and attempts to make evidence fit the narrative. Add in stupidity like Spike Lee’s RT of private address information of unconnected seniors and you can get some sense of the fustercluck and media circus this case has been. That’s not even including the egregious overreach of the DA going for 2nd degree murder charges.

    So yeah, we’re all going to be paying attention to the trial, flea. Lots of inconvenient facts will come out and even after GZ is found innocent of the charges against him, he’ll still be dealing with the death threats from the stoked up outrage bots fueled by race baiting opportunists.

        They also did not disclose his police record or his school suspension records. He had illegal drug residuals in his system as disclosed by the autopsy. He was booted from school several times. He was caught in possession of burglary tools, illegal drugs, and was an all around worthless thug.

  • Protus Mose

    Owning and carrying a firearm is right that carries with it obligations to responsibly use that right. Zimmerman had no need to follow the kid, and no authority to detain him. He had no reason to get out of his vehicle and chase the kid down. Even if Trayvon did hit him first, Zimmerman instigated the confrontation. If you are carrying a weapon, it is your responsibility to ensure it is never used unless absolutely necessary.

    http://gunsforeveryone.com/seen-on-reddit-the-mind-of-the-armed/

    • Calcat36

      He who threw the first punch is guilty of assault. But nice try ending in an EPIC FAIL. If Zimmerman were breaking the law, brain dead one, the cops would have stopped him 87 times BEFORE this happened. He had every right to follow a suspect, who turned out to be a thug, an illegal drug abuser, and a student found to be possessing burglary tools in a back pack on SCHOOL PROPERTY. Owning burglary tools on school property, as well as possessing residual drug evidence is a felony. The cops knew Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch. Treyvon’s father knew he was a watch who was watching over HIS home as well! Zimmerman was carrying a weapon, and your victim reached for it to try to use it on Zimmerman. So, using your sage philosophy, Zimmerman found it “absolutely necessary” to pull the trigger once he regained possession of the weapon after your “victim” tried to bash Zimmerman’s skull into a curb. And on top of all the liberal BS, we still have “citizen’s arrest” laws on the books, right?

    George Zimmerman is progressing through his “due process of law.” Maybe you need to google that term since you, like so many others, are confused about what that means, exactly. And, Flea, STFU! You are ruining the RHCP’s for me!

    The media dropped the story quickly after some of the more interesting items came out about the incident. There will be a trial here in Florida. We don’t need any Flea to help with his little sock puppet.
    Maybe Flea should ask what happened to his career?
