September 2016 Update
We report on cases, the majority of which are cases involving gun violence. With an interest in stand your ground and self-defense claims due to the killings of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, and Renisha McBride, our interest expanded into cases of officer involved shootings. The cases we report on might criminal or civil.
We also like encouraging others, and that includes the grieving.
Most of those following this blog since its beginning know that I, the blog’s administrator, walk a spiritual path of faith, hope, and love, doing no evil. As a Pacifist Christian, I do not believe in hating nor killing. Those of all faiths and those who have no religious beliefs but who share the same path are welcomed here.
Administrative Message – September 2014 Update
You must have a Word Press account to submit comments. We apologize, but it was the only option remaining to stop harassing, threatening, and extortion demanding comments sent by sovereign citizens and White Supremacists sending comments to this blog using proxy IP addresses and fake email addresses.
Comments of those posting here for the first time are held in moderation for approval. Comments containing more than two (2) links are held in moderation.
Blackbutterfly7 believes in diversity, love, kindness and equality for all, regardless of religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
While we welcome discussion and debate, it requires that it is respectful.
On February 26, 2012, a 17 year old’s life was brutally taken in Sanford, Florida. His name is Trayvon Martin. The man who killed him, George M. Zimmerman, claimed self-defense under Florida’s stand your ground statute. He was not arrested until April, 2012, after the governor of Florida appointed a special investigating State’s Attorney to the case.
A few of us met in the comment section of Yahoo articles. As discovery was released, we thought it would be good to have one place to upload it for convenient retrieval. We started a Yahoo Group titled Blackbutterfly768. As time went on, online comment sections on news sources became places of hate-speech, mean-spirited, game playing places for trolls. That is how the thought of starting a blog came about. The title “Blackbutterfly” was already taken on Word Press. We added “7” to the title, and in August 2012, Blackbutterfly7 was launched.
In all the websites, comments and other writings posted about the subject case, it appears that those supporting George Zimmerman’s innocence incorporate a race in a most denigrating manner. They also use unsupported allegations against Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman’s supporters actually congratulate him for racial profiling and killing a “thug”; want him acquitted to kill more; and encourage others to do the same. SHAMEFUL!
After Shellie Zimmerman was arrested for perjury, those supporting George Zimmerman began an outright (and seemingly organized) attack on Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother. Blackbutterfly7 believes that Ms. Fulton has more class in her little finger than George Zimmerman and his supporters could ever hope for. Blackbutterfly7 is dedicated to encouraging Trayvon Martin’s family and friends. Blackbutterfly7 is a safe place to land for those supporting justice for Trayvon.
July 2013 Update
Now that a jury of 5 White women and 1 Hispanic woman have found George Zimmerman not guilty, the DOJ has re-opened their investigation to determine whether George Zimmerman violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights. Zimmerman supporters will have the public believe that the DOJ closed its investigation in 2012, but that is not true. The DOJ put it on hold until after the State’s trial.
Shellie Zimmerman still awaits trial for perjury. We shall be watching.
October 2013 Update
In a plea deal, Shellie Zimmerman plead guilty to perjury and was sentenced to a year’s probation,100 hours of community service, and some fines. She has also filed for divorce.
George has stayed in the news with traffic stops and an altercation at the house he shared with Shellie as they separated their personal belongings. He is taped destroying her IPad.
Just as we were concentrating on other cases and issues, George Zimmerman was arrested AGAIN. This time, he got into an altercation with his girlfriend. Subsequently, the girlfriend rescinded, said she would not cooperate in the case, and the State of Florida has dismissed the case.
And So, We Continue …
