Frank Taaffe – George Zimmerman “Racially Profiled Trayvon Martin”
Frank Taaffe, who came into the spotlight early defending George Zimmerman, now wants to clear his conscience. He interviewed withJohn W. Davis, Seminole County Reporter of My News 13. Taaffe now says that Zimmerman should have been found guilty in the shooting death of unarmed, 17-year old Trayvon Martin.
Clearing the conscience is not the same as changing the mind. In other words, Taaffe is now admitting what he always knew was true.
Taaffe told John W. Davis, Seminole County Reporter,
“What I know of George and his tendencies and also my opinion is that he racially profiled Trayvon Martin that night because if that had been a white kid on a cell phone, walking through our neighborhood, he wouldn’t have stayed on him the way he did and that’s a fact and I believe that in my heart.”
Many people knew that as fact by Zimmerman’s references of Trayvon in the plural – “assholes” and “coons.”
Taaffe told Davis, “I can only ask for the country to forgive me and today I believe that he racially profiled him based on the color of his skin. ”
Taaffe is not working on a book, or a television show, but on himself. He is getting right with God. Well, maybe he reads George Zimmerman’s tweets and realizes what a hypocrite looks and sounds like.
Taaffe’s brother died last month, and he lost his two sons previously; one to suicide and the other to a car accident that occurred in 2012 while Taaffe was advocating for Zimmerman. By his mocking, demeaning attitude on camera, no one would have known that he grieved the death of his son. My condolences to Taaffe. Maybe he now understands that death does not discriminate.
Trayvon Martin did not die from illness. He did not die in a car accident. He did not decide to take his own life. Trayvon Martin is dead because, as Taaffe said, he was racially profiled by George Zimmerman who “stayed on him.” If I may add, he stayed on him until he found, confronted, and shot him in the heart with a hollow point bullet.
A few questions I have for Frank Taaffe to chew on;
1. Why wasn’t he called as a witness at Zimmerman’s trial? In his media appearances, Taaffe spoke about the “perfect storm,” yet Mark O’Mara called Olivia Bertalan as a witness of the “perfect storm,” thereby appealing to the biases of the all women jury. See how bigotry works, Frank?
2. Did he encourage George to be Neighborhood Watch as an attempt to violate the Fair Housing Act by terrorizing Blacks out of the Retreat at Twin Lakes?
3. What does he know about Juror B37 and her influence on the rest of the jury?
4. Are you sorry for calling Oprah a “N”?
5. Where is Don West?
George is protected from double-jeopardy and witnesses and friends are now coming forth saying that George is guilty of murder. That doesn’t bring Trayvon back to life in the flesh, neither provide his family with justice. It puts a scar upon this nation; a deep stab wound that cannot be healed.
Clearing the conscience means not only doing the right thing, but seeing that wrong is corrected. The Department of Justice’s investigation is ongoing. Jonathan Manalo, John Good, and Frank Taaffe should follow their consciences to see that wrong is corrected.
Justice for Trayvon!
