Wednesday, I shared with a new friend how this blog came to be named “blackbutterfly.” She suggested that I post the story behind it. The following is the entire story.
In the Bible, 2 Corinthians chapter 3 speaks of the ministry of death through the letter, and the ministry of life through the spirit. The ministry of life is not written on stone, but on hearts and in minds. Verse 17 speaks of liberty/freedom, and verse 18 speaks of changing from glory to glory into the same image as God’s spirit. That word interpreted “change” in verse 18 is the Greek word metamorphoo. It is the origin of the word “metamorphosis.”
My appreciation for butterflies increased when learning that. Butterflies go through metamorphosis. I live in an area where black butterflies that look like velvet appear during the summer. Some have orange on their wings. Others have white on their wings. When I think of butterflies, I think how they are used in songs. Elton John, in the song “Someone saved my life tonight” refers to the woman he decided not to marry as a butterfly, free to fly. Then there is Deniece Williams who sings “Black butterfly.”
Around May or June 2012, I met Mindyme and Jim in the comment sections of Yahoo articles. We wanted one place to save articles, links, and material regarding the George Zimmerman case. I opened a Yahoo Group for that purpose, but the titles “butterfly” and “blackbutterfly” were taken. Yahoo made some automatic suggestions, but I chose to add the numbers 768. Seven is the number of completion. Six is the number of man, and eight is the number of new beginnings. Butterflies are symbolic of change, transition, freedom and rebirth. The numbers seemed appropriate. Read the rest of this entry

Thanks to everyone who visited, referred, participated. Happy New Year to you all and in 2013, let’s continue praying for justice for Trayvon.
George Zimmerman (GZ) followed Trayvon Martin in a vehicle. Trayvon ran to and beyond the pedestrian cut-through which has no road for a vehicle. How was Trayvon to know that GZ would get out of his truck and follow him on foot? If, as GZ says, Trayvon ran and was out of sight, how would Trayvon know that GZ had followed him, where GZ would walk thereafter, and whether GZ would make a round-trip returning to his car and when? Thus, the theory that Trayvon double-backed to attack GZ appears acceptable only to people who believe that Trayvon could read GZ’s mind and have pre-knowledge of GZ’s movements.
In his video taped re-enactment, GZ shows how he walked to Retreat View Circle. His stated reason for walking to Retreat View Circle was to get an address so he could call the dispatcher back with it. Retreat View Circle is so important to GZ that he told Detectives Serino and Singleton that he was walking back from Retreat View Circle at the time that the dispatcher asked if he wanted to meet the arriving cops at the mail boxes. Evidently, GZ forgot that his stated purpose for walking to Retreat View Circle was to get an address. GZ did not give that address to the dispatcher. When was he going to call?
Not remembering the correct address for the clubhouse when talking with the dispatcher, and when asked how he could not remember the names of three streets in that community, saying that he has a bad memory, certainly GZ was not going to walk all the way back to his truck to call back dispatch. Had GZ called dispatch with the address while he was on Retreat View Circle, he would not have needed to search for his cell phone, giving Trayvon (according to his story), opportunity to hit him in the face as he was feeling the his right side pockets for his elusive cell phone. GZ carried his gun on his right side also, although he claimed at one point that he forgot he was carrying it until he “felt” that Trayvon had seen and was going for the gun.
When interviewed by Detectives Singleton and Serino on February 29, 2012, GZ said that when the dispatcher said “We don’t need you to do that,” that he was on Retreat View Circle. (At 58:25 of the interview.) Although Serino told GZ that the law of physics says that Trayvon could not have made it home in that time, GZ alleges that he ran the entire distance from the cut-through and beyond where Trayvon was staying, and was standing on Retreat View Circle when the dispatcher told him “We don’t need you to do that.” Effectively, GZ placed himself on Retreat View Circle before Trayvon reached that point. Let’s take that part as truth – GZ was on Retreat View Circle before Trayvon was able to get to Ms. Green’s townhouse.
This is my impression on why, in his statements and re-enactment, GZ intentionally placed himself on Retreat View Circle before Trayvon arrived at Ms. Green’s house where he was staying with his dad. The following is based on physical and forensic evidence and witness statements.
GZ stopped running when he reached the cut-through. Why? GZ DID NOT want to go on that dog path without his flashlight operating. (He stated as much to Singleton and Serino. In his re-enactment, GZ said that when he first reached the “T”, that his flashlight was not working.) Thus, GZ was neither going to go down the “T” without a working flashlight.
Let’s remember that according to GZ, his flashlight was not working when he first arrived at the “T.” Let’s now go back and remember that in the recording of his call when the dispatcher said “We don’t need you to do that,” it is shortly thereafter when we hear a sound that GZ says was due to him banging his flashlight, trying to get it to work. We can conclude, based on that recording, that wherever GZ was when told “We don’t need you to do that,” it was shortly thereafter when he tries to get his flashlight to operate.
Banging on his tactical flashlight in effort to get it to work, and while holding his cell phone, made it possible for GZ to drop his keychain with the small flashlight. That flashlight was found on, and near the T. Listening to the recording of GZ’s call, he got out of his truck very fast. That means that the tactical flashlight had to be within convenient reach. GZ lived in a townhouse with an attached garage. He would not need a flashlight to see how to enter his house. On those occasions when he might have come into the townhouse through the front door, GZ had a small flashlight on his key chain. Why was the tactical flashlight so convenient for GZ to grab as he got out of this truck to follow Trayvon?
In all of his statements, not once does GZ mention either flashlight. He does not say when nor what caused him to drop either of them. When interviewed, none of the investigators thought to ask GZ why the small flashlight was on, nor how he managed to hold onto the tactical flashlight while doing the shimmy and being beaten. If he was unable to get the tactical flashlight to work, why did he drop the small, working flashlight but hold onto the one that wasn’t working?
Keeping the aforementioned things in mind regarding the flashlights, the question is, was GZ at the “T” when he banged on his tactical flashlight? I believe that he was walking down the dog path.
GZ could not see down the “T” but he heard Trayvon talking. This is in agreement with Trayvon’s phone log for when DeeDee called at 7:12 p.m., and also the time in GZ’s call when his tone of voice changes as well as his plan on where to meet the cops. It was about 7:12:42 p.m. He hears Trayvon talking and knows he is on the “T”. With an assumption that Trayvon is headed for the back gate, GZ planned to cut him off.
Trayvon would have been walking Ms. Green’s house to turn the corner and run “from the back” to the front of Ms. Green’s house. This agrees with what DeeDee describes as Trayvon saying he was going to “run from the back.” DeeDee stated that Trayvon said he was “by” his father’s house. “By” is not necessarily “at.” Trayvon was “by,” near to, his father’s house. DeeDee, not being familiar with the physical layout, could not comprehend what Trayvon meant. She could only report what he said to her.
Trayvon told DeeDee that he had lost the creepy guy. Going to the front of Ms. Green’s house by taking Retreat View Circle would be risky because the creepy looking guy was in a vehicle, and vehicles can drive on Retreat View Circle. Trayvon’s only other alternative for getting inside would be to call Chad to have him open the patio door. Trayvon was on his phone and reasonably, wanted to complete his call with DeeDee.
Why Would George Zimmerman Place The Altercation At the T? Why Would George Zimmerman Place Himself on Retreat View Circle?
The most logical answer is because GZ was on those two streets and needed to account for his presence in the event he was seen or heard by witnesses. Along with this, GZ may have also needed to lead investigators to another path in order for his head bashing story to work.
In photos and on video, a fire hydrant sits at the corner of the dog path and Retreat View Circle. Anyone walking fast or running, trying to cut that corner in the dark, would come very close to or in contact with that fire hydrant. I have wondered if GZ tripped and fell, hitting his head on the top of the fire hydrant, causing the round laceration. In the dark, and just at the corner, he certainly could have done that.
GZ entered the “T” from the South.
To reiterate, Investigator Serino told GZ that the law of physics says that Trayvon could not have arrived at his dad’s house before GZ arrived on Retreat View Circle by going down the dog path. Serino’s mistake was trying to make sense out of GZ’s story, and assuming that Trayvon was hiding. Trayvon had no reason to hide. The creepy looking guy had followed in a vehicle. Trayvon had ran to an area with no road for a vehicle. How was Trayvon to know that the creepy guy would get out of his truck and follow him on foot?
It was GZ who stopped running when he reached the “T” and while attempting to get his tactical flashlight to work, heard Trayvon talking on the phone, giving away his location. This makes perfect sense with GZ not wanting to give the dispatcher his full address on the basis of “I don’t know where this kid is.” That statement certainly conveys that GZ believed that Trayvon was within hearing range. GZ would not come from behind Trayvon, because that would mean Trayvon could run from him to the back entrance as GZ assumed Trayvon was heading. To prevent that, GZ needed to cut-off Trayvon by getting ahead of his route.
Does the following make sense? You see the suspicious guy run towards the back entrance. However, there is a space before that back entrance that you describe as “the “T.” You claim seeing the suspicious guy run down the “T,” but you don’t tell the dispatcher. Furthermore, you know that the “T” comes out to a street. You say “He ran” and in statements, say that you walked to Retreat View Circle because you thought the guy was long gone. Long gone to where? If the suspicious guy intended to run out the back entrance, but he cut down the “T,” then going to Retreat View Circle would certainly put you in position to come into physical contact with him.
GZ sent out a double-message; i.e., “He ran” and “I don’t know where this kid is.” GZ saw Trayvon run. He lost visual. He then heard Trayvon’s voice — and he suspected that the suspicious guy was close enough to hear him talking. GZ had a plan to cut-off Trayvon’s path to the back entrance. GZ then asked the dispatcher to have the cops call him for his location. Deep in my heart, I wish that the dispatcher had told GZ outright to meet the cops at the mail boxes — no alternative. However, how was the dispatcher suppose to analyze GZ’s words? How was he suppose to know that GZ was carrying a loaded gun? Still being away from his truck, and telling the dispatcher he didn’t know where the kid was, why didn’t the dispatcher keep GZ on the phone until he entered his truck — for his own safety?
GZ went down the dog path to Retreat View Circle (as he demonstrated in his re-enactment), and went around the block, entering the “T” from the south. In the first video below, it shows that GZ could do exactly that.
When GZ stopped running, that doesn’t mean that he stopped walking while he continued talking with dispatch. As the 3 videos accompanying this post show, GZ’s reason for going to Retreat View Circle, and the timing for when he said Trayvon approached him, do not jive. From the time that the wind is no longer heard in GZ’s phone, until he ended his non-emergency call with the Sanford Police Department, is about a minute and 37 seconds. GZ could have been walking during that time. It was only 80 seconds thereafter when the first 911 call was received, reporting someone screaming for help. I’ll leave it to the talented people, such as LLMPapa and Trent Sawyer, to figure out the exact timing, distance, and how long it would take GZ to walk from where the dog path and Retreat View Circle meet, to going around the block and entering the “T” from the south.
GZ’s story is that Trayvon came from the T and asked if he had a problem. As the evidence of the crime scene provides, the debris field and Trayvon’s body was about 40 feet away from where GZ says Trayvon approached him, and where his head was bashed and where he shot Trayvon.
Trayvon Sees George Zimmerman Coming From Retreat View Circle
After running down the “T” while talking with DeeDee, Trayvon told her that he saw the creepy guy again and he was getting closer. Trayvon would have been looking in front of himself — not to his rear. Then, Trayvon told DeeDee that the creepy guy was following him again. Trayvon had changed directions. He turned his back to GZ and starting walking away from GZ going north when GZ ran past and in front of him. There is talk of a witness who saw GZ this. That witness is anonymous and has not given a statement, but there is still hope that witness will come forth. Trayvon asked, “What are you following me for?”
Now, DeeDee believes that Trayvon was pushed ONCE, but it is my belief that GZ pushed Trayvon when he first asked “What are you doing here?” The second push knocked Trayvon off balance and DeeDee hears Trayvon yell “get off, get off.” GZ reverts to his bouncer days and wrestled Trayvon to the ground. Trayvon squirmed to get away from GZ and started crying for help.
GZ took swats at Trayvon with the tactical flashlight to shut him up (Ya, Ya, Ya). Trayvon raised his hand in defense which resulted in the cut to his ring finger on the palm side of his hand, below the knuckle. When raising his hand in defense, the can of iced tea comes out of the bag. The EMT’s would find that same can of iced tea in the pocket of Trayvon’s hoodie. Stay with me here as I will address how it got in the pocket.
In my opinion, the reason some witnesses think they only saw one person on the ground (in an orange jacket) is because Trayvon was belly down trying to get away from GZ, while GZ was on top of Trayvon, at least half-way. In the alternative, Trayvon was on his back on the ground trying to squirm his way loose from GZ. That would also account for the debris found on Trayvon’s hoodie, shirt, socks and shoes, while no debris was found on GZ’s clothes — only the toe of his left boot. There had to be weight on Trayvon to embed debris into his clothing. His clothing would also have to have been moving while on the ground to raise his pants allowing debris onto his socks. Those results are unlikely if Trayvon was in a straddling position over GZ.
From that position, they begin to roll. GZ scratches his head on something. (GZ told Singleton that he thought it was a sign.) There are utility covers on the ground where the wrestling occurred. The rock and roll ended with GZ on the bottom and Trayvon pushing down GZ’s shoulders while trying to get up. A witness stated that he saw this position with GZ leaning to his left, raising his right-side up. That is when GZ went for his gun. Trayvon managed to stand and GZ grabbed his shirts, resulting in GZ’s head touching the bottom of Trayvon’s shirt, leaving a spot of blood. GZ holds his gun on Trayvon, who screams louder. By this time, at least two residents have shouted out that they were calling 911.
As GZ told Sean Hannity, he ran out of time. He was “nervous” and “terrified” that the cops would arrive and find him standing there with his gun and shoot him. Still holding onto Trayvon’s shirts, and making sure that his left hand was out of the aim of his gun, GZ shot Trayvon in the heart. By firing with one hand, the recoil hit him in the nose.
From confrontation to gunshot, it took about 2 minutes.
Why Did GZ Lie About Spreading Trayvon’s Arms Out
GZ stated that after he shot Trayvon, he spread his arms out in a “Y” position. He also stated that he checked Trayvon’s hands because when he was being hit, it felt as though Trayvon had something in his hands. That is odd seeing that GZ described Trayvon cupping both hands on GZ’s face, one over the mouth and the other over GZ’s nose. Indeed, that would be impossible had Trayvon had an object in his hands.
When the first police arrived, they found Trayvon’s body face down with his hands beneath his body. Thus, we know that GZ’s story about spreading Trayvon’s arms into a Y is false. Like an experienced bouncer, GZ knew that he had grabbed and twisted Trayvon by his wrists and arms. The spreading of Trayvon’s arms into a Y was a cover his ass story in the event his DNA appeared on Trayvon’s wrists. Witnesses gave statements of seeing GZ straddling Trayvon’s back and running his hands along Trayvon’s body. The 7-Eleven video clearly shows that the clerk placed the iced tea in a bag. The EMT’s however, found the iced tea in the pocket of Trayvon’s hoodie. GZ would need to put the iced tea into Trayvon’s pocket — just in case he would need to say that he felt the weight and thought it was a gun. Getting Trayvon’s blood on his hands, GZ also searched inside Trayvon’s pockets, leaving Trayvon’s blood on the bag of Skittles.
Much thanks goes out to Dave Knechel, LLMPapa, and Trent Sawyer (stateoftheinternet) for using the walk-through video and comparing it to George Zimmerman’s non-emergency call. You guys are the greatest!
It’s time to send some love out to Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin, and the rest of Trayvon’s family and friends. We have not forgotten you. Trayvon loved you, and we do too. This is also for the encouragement of Attorneys Crump and Jackson, and all those working on your team.
We lift you up.

When I first heard the screams on the 911 call, I questioned whether George Zimmerman (GZ) used a cop take-down technique on Trayvon Martin. The screams recorded on the 911 tape were not only screams for help. They are cries of pain and just before the shot, we can hear screams of “No! Noooo!” Then I read a Reuter’s article that reports Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s dad, saying of the photo shown to him by a detective of the Sanford Police Department;
“It was Trayvon, dead at the scene – his eyes rolled back, a tear on his cheek, saliva coming from his mouth. “
That is the face of a person who was crying, who was afraid, who was in pain. That is the face that applies to the screams heard on the 911 call.
George Zimmerman Had Experience To Cause Others Physical Pain
An unnamed former co-worker told the New York Daily News that GZ was paid under-the-table for providing security for illegal house parties between 2001 and 2005, but was let go because his anger issues “became a liability.” We know that he was arrested for attacking an undercover law enforcement officer.
GZ is a former bouncer. He wanted to be a cop. Former cop and current U.S. Air Marshall, Mark Osterman, was GZ’s mentor. He taught GZ how to shoot.
GZ attended a community volunteer law enforcement academy where civilians get to see the work of law enforcement.
Put this together, and they give reason to believe that GZ was exposed to, and maybe even trained and practiced, police restraint and take-down techniques.
Since many are of the opinion that GZ is a cop wannabee, why stop with pursuing, terminology he uses, and carrying a gun while on neighborhood watch? Why not also include self-defense, disarming, taking down, and restraining “suspects”?
Frederick Leatherman’s Law Blog presents an excellent post on “Dueling Witnesses.” Written by a poster whose handle/name is Patricia, it questions whether GZ twisted Trayvon Martin’s arm or wrist. http://frederickleatherman.wordpress.com/2012/08/31/zimmerman-witnesses-practicum-by-patricia-with-update-on-character-assassination-efforts/
It is Frederick Leatherman’s blog and Patricia’s contribution that inspired this post. It would be somewhat disrespectful to take up this much space on another’s blog in the comment section. The videos posted here are in consideration that GZ could have applied a wrist lock (which he told Serino that he did), and also because having Trayvon in a wrist lock, it would have protected his holstered gun from being taken by Trayvon.
Witnesses saw “wrestling.” At any time, either person could be on the top of the other. Thus, it is not my position to say that Trayvon was never on top of GZ. Lab reports provide that Trayvon did not punch GZ, neither place his hands over GZ’s nose or mouth. So, let’s place Trayvon on top of GZ, and see what could have possibly happened consistent also with the evidence of the bullet hole in Trayvon’s clothes, as compared to where the bullet entered his chest.
Lab reports for trace elements say that debris was found on GZ’s left shoe. From the photos taken of GZ the night that he killed Trayvon, grass can be seen on the toe of GZ’s left boot. Debris was found on Trayvon’s shoes, sweatshirt, and hoodie. Although GZ is left-handed, he conceal carried on his right-side. His re-enactment provides that GZ indeed reached for his gun on his right-side. It appears that the side where the gun is not holstered is important when restraining a person.
DeeDee stated that it sounded like someone pushed Trayvon, and she heard Trayvon say “Get off. Get off.” GZ was carrying a tactical flashlight. In none of his interviews, neither his re-enactment, does he mention when and why he dropped the tactical flashlight. While GZ states that the altercation started at the “T”, about 40 feet South of that location is the crime scene. Crime scene photos and markers provide that the tactical flashlight was found near Trayvon’s body in the grass. GZ would have us believe that while stumbling, getting his head bashed on the sidewalk, and while doing the shimmy onto the grass, that he held onto his tactical flashlight. It is my suggestion that GZ only let go of that tactical flashlight to take Trayvon down to the ground as Trayvon cried out in pain. He next drew his gun and in response, Trayvon cried “Noooo!!! Noooo!!”
After one resident shouted out that he was calling 911, GZ shot Trayvon Martin. It is my opinion that GZ shot Trayvon because his screams brought attention to them.
When no weapon is involved, a person can still take an assailant down and remove themselves.
In his interview with Sean Hannity, GZ says that he was scared and nervous. Why?
ZIMMERMAN: “I also thought the police were going to come and see me with the firearm and shoot me. I mean, I was terrified.”
It is my opinion that GZ was scared and nervous that the police would arrive and see him with his firearm while Trayvon was screaming out in pain, and for help. Why? Because GZ claims that he holstered his gun after shooting Trayvon Martin.
On Oct. 26, 2012, the State v. George Zimmerman was heard in court on two motions. In layman’s terms, Zimmerman wanted State witnesses not to talk to State Attorneys before O’Mara, his attorney, deposes them. Presiding Judge Nelson said “no’ denying Zimmerman’s motion.
The other motion was filed by the State for a gag order against all attorneys and their staff using the media to promote their positions. Judge Nelson is to rule on that on Monday.
Attorney West for Zimmerman, approached the podium in effort to regurgitate the statement of Witness 8, who is commonly known as “DeeDee” or Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend. Judge West refused to hear the matter re-argued as she entered order regarding the recorded statement last week.
Judge Nelson also set a Case Management calendar.
Originally, we presented videos of the hearing that were recorded by Trent Sawyer, (stateoftheinternet), and posted to his YouTube channel. Since the verdict, Trent has made the videos private and they are no longer available.
It’s time to take a break from discussing the Zimmermans and the George Zimmerman case, and send some love out to Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin, and the rest of Trayvon’s family and friends. We have not forgotten you. Trayvon loved you, and we do too. This is also for the encouragement of Attorneys Crump and Jackson, and all those working on your team.
We lift you up.
Videos shall be added to or changed on this page from time to time for your encouragement.
The following song was written and produced by Hail Ceasar. The first 26 seconds might be difficult to listen to, but it’s those sounds that awoke a sleeping world and placed Trayvon in our hearts.
Most recently, Robert Zimmerman Jr., older brother of George Zimmerman, went on a media tangent. He focus was to speak about race and GZ’s case. He went beyond that when Tweeting a threat to Attorney Jackson that his life’s goal was to have her disbarred. Mark O’Mara, defense attorney for George Zimmerman, then posted on the legal defense site his disagreement with Junior’s statements and activities.
Junior has now responded. He makes no apologies for his threats, neither causing controversy by his media participation. His response is below.
Mark and Sondra Osterman have written a book where they refer to George Zimmerman as the most hated man in America.
Hated? Maybe by some. Some people think he is the most shameful man in America. Nevertheless, those who probably dislike George Zimmerman or think that he is shameful might be;
1. Responsible gun owners
2. Responsible patients with ADHD.
3. Responsible neighborhood watch volunteers.
4. People that don’t lie to the court.
5. People who tell the truth when under oath.
6. People who don’t wear band aids intended for fingers between their eyes.
7. People who don’t put band aids intended for fingers on their head.
8. People who don’t put band aids on anything after the physician’s assistant examined them, told them to apply soap and water and didn’t apply bandages.
9. People who don’t abandon their jobs and homes within 24 hrs of exercising self-defense when they are innocent.
10. People who donate money for specific use who are betrayed by having the money used to buy expensive cell phones, ITune purchases, and to pay off past-due debts.
11. Dog owners with a neighbor who buys a gun to kill dogs.
12. People who like walking in the rain.
13. The criminally accused who wear GPS ankle bracelets while free on bail and don’t whine about not being able to leave the state where they reside.
14. Parents of teenage boys who walk to the store and can’t walk home without a grown man assuming they are “suspicious.”
15. Parents who don’t want grown men following their children.
16. Teachers who issue discipline who don’t want to be afraid that doing so labels their students as “thugs.”
17. Teenagers who don’t want to be labeled “thugs” because they wear hoodies.
18. People who don’t like seeing George Zimmerman smirk when saying he’s the only witness to the killing of Trayvon Martin.
19. People who know that shooting a gun with one hand can result in recoil that might hit you in the nose.
20. People who don’t like others firing a gun in their backyard.
21. People who would never jump on the back of a person they just fired a gun at, and who they are afraid of.
22. People who say “Let the court decide” and shut up, rather than write a book and/or go on television and radio giving the defendant’s story before the court decides.
23. People who don’t like bullies and cowards.
24. People who can’t stand killers who get on national television and say “It wasn’t my gun. It wasn’t his gun. It was THE gun.”
On 9/25/2012, The Global Grind presented a video of George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman, Jr., and published his letter to Trayvon Martin’s family.
In pertinent part, Junior wrote:
“From the first moment we knew what had transpired we were deeply aggrieved and in keeping with the teachings of our faith we prayed for the departed.”
“As Trayvon’s family remembers him, I would want them to know that at that time each of us prayed for him and each of us in our own way remembered him as well.”
The Zimmerman family just disrespected the faith of Trayvon’s family and many other Christians, including myself. The idea of praying for the dead, or what is known as purgatory, is a Roman Catholic doctrine. Nothing against Roman Catholics — just disagree with the doctrine. Purgatory is the condition of purification or temporary punishment by which those who die in a state of grace are believed to be made ready for heaven. The Zimmermans might as well had said that they believe Trayvon Martin deserved the death caused to him by George putting a hollow point bullet into his heart. They are praying for Trayvon’s worthiness to enter heaven.
Just as George Zimmerman got out of his truck and followed Trayvon Martin on 2/26/12, the condolence speaks volumes of prejudicial assumption and profiling. George Zimmerman judged Trayvon Martin by his flesh, and now his family judges Trayvon’s spirit.
It is George Zimmerman who is living in purgatory awaiting purification or temporary punishment. Trayvon Benjamin Martin is free. Unlike George, Trayvon is not homeless. Unlike George, Trayvon has no fears. Unlike George, Trayvon is not subject to the judgment of men. Unlike George, Trayvon is not poor and accumulating debts. Trayvon is not hungry – he is not sick. Unlike George, Trayvon is not taking medication. George’s parents are begging others for money because of George’s actions. His wife, Shellie, is awaiting trial because of George’s decisions. According to George, this is all God’s plan. George Zimmerman might be breathing, but his actions on the evening of 2/26/12 took his own life, and that of his family.
Robert Zimmerman Jr., you can learn from the quiet dignity of Trayvon’s parents.
On March 27, 2012, ABC News affiliates reported that 17 yr. old Trayvon Martin called 911 seconds before he was shot to death by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. The news report stated that the 911 recording captured George Zimmerman’s voice in the background, and that the FBI is enhancing the audio of the 911 call to determine what Zimmerman is saying to Trayvon. Later, that published report was removed from the internet – but not before someone saved it.
People have wondered if it’s true that Trayvon called 911 while he struggled to get away from George Zimmerman’s grip seconds before Zimmerman fired a hollow point bullet into Trayvon’s heart.
Later, the ABC affiliate said that the reporter misspoke, and that the 911 audio he was alluding to was a 911 call made by an ear-witness in the gated community where Trayvon was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, (GZ). Hence, we now know that the 911 call where GZ is heard speaking to Trayvon in the background is a call made by a resident/witness. Those are witnesses number 11 and Jeremy, witness 20.
Emphasis: There was an effort to identify the voice of the person screaming for help. THIS ENHANCEMENT IS NOT TO DETERMINE THAT VOICE. It’s to determine the words spoken by George Zimmerman to Trayvon Martin.
Listening to the audio of that call is like listening to a 4-piece band all playing different songs. There is the 911 operator; the woman on the phone with the 911 operator; the husband telling his wife to tell 911 to hurry up; and the screams of pain and help in the background. Each voice is playing a different song. After figuring out what song each instrument is playing and listening to the audio again, you find that there is a 5th instrument.
No wonder the public did not notice this previously! Other than GZ’s non-emergency call reporting a suspicious person, the public had not heard his voice. GZ has since made sure that the public knows his voice – from his first bond hearing; to his jailhouse phone recordings; to his interview with Sean Hannity; to his website; his has made his voice known.
In the background of the 911 call of Witness 11, the instrument is now identified as that of George Zimmerman. He is not screaming. He is talking. His words are difficult to make-out with the exception of one word that he almost shouts. That word is “fuck.” Could this be what Mark Osterman was actually referring to in his Fox interview when saying that the FBI confirmed, “by a 90 to 95% match,” that the voice captured on a 911 call during the altercation is Zimmerman’s?
Just as GZ has appropriated Trayvon’s cries for help to himself, he appropriated his words to Trayvon, making it reasonable to believe that it was GZ who cupped his hands over Trayvon’s mouth while saying, “Shut the fuck up.” That in fact, GZ does a Freudian slip during his re-enactment when stating, regarding Trayvon, “… he put his hand on his nose, no on my nose …” (At 9 minutes 20 seconds of the 12 minute, 27 second re-enactment video.)
George Zimmerman’s voice is captured in the background of the 911 call at 7:16:48-49. Also keep in mind that the audio released to the public redacts the caller’s personal information as the agonizing screams for help are heard in the background. George Zimmerman’s voice might also be heard during those redacted moments.
The State Prosecutors know the evidence they have to convict GZ. Make no mistake about it. Let the immunity hearing begin!

The following are comments posted on the internet by George Zimmerman (GZ) fans:
“It is shameful what we are doing to this man. He took out a thug before the thug could kill him, AND prevented all the future crimes (rape, assault, drug dealing) that Trayvon would have done in his life. George deserves our thanks for helping to keep us safe!”
“The only good black is a dead black just like trayvon.”
“He was black, wearing a hoodie, and his name was Trayvon. HE WAS A FELONY WAITING TO HAPPEN.”
“The stupid baboon chimped out, circled back, stalked and followed Zimmerman as he was walking back to his vehicle, then combatively and belligerently confronting Zimmerman, then brutally attacking Zimmerman. Furthermore, Zimmerman demonstrated restraint by only firing once and only after being viciously and brutally attacked by the chimped out wild uncivilized monkey. “
These types of comments are common among GZ fans. You see, they are clairvoyant — bigotvoyants, (bi-got-voy-ants). Bigotvoyants can look into the future of every young Black male and predict what crimes they will commit unless they are murdered before their future begins. Bigotvoyants have recently used their gift to explain what happened the evening of 2/26/2012 when GZ killed unarmed, 17 yr old Trayvon Martin. Their crystal brains showed them that it could have only happened one of two ways;
- Trayvon had time to get to his dad’s house but instead, laid in wait or circled back to attack GZ.
- Trayvon went home, changed pants, then left out again to attack GZ.
Not only are GZ’s fans clairvoyant, but in order for things to happen the way they describe, it requires that Trayvon also be clairvoyant. You see, before GZ got out of his truck, Trayvon would have to know that he would. According to the bigotvoyants, when Trayvon ran, he didn’t run to get away from GZ. Rather, he ran because he knew GZ would follow him and then he could attack GZ.
According to bigotvoyants, Trayvon knew that GZ did not know the name of the street he was on, and would need to walk all the way down the dog path to get an address on the next street over. Bigotvoyants know that Trayvon knew that GZ would not stand in front of that address, call the police and wait at that location for the police to arrive. Bigotvoyants know that Trayvon foresaw that GZ would make a roundtrip, walking back to his truck to call the police with that address, although GZ would not be at that address when calling them. Yes! Bigotvoyants know exactly what Trayvon would know about GZ’s movements.
Oh wait. There is a good portion of bigotvoyants who do not believe that GZ walked to the next street over. That in fact, they don’t believe anything he said other than Trayvon attacked and intended to kill him. They don’t believe GZ’s re-enactment, neither what he said in his interview with Sean Hannity. You see, they know that GZ doesn’t have the gift, and not having the gift to see into the future, that he doesn’t live in the reality of the present neither remember the past.
Actually, some bigotvoyants have not seen GZ’s video-taped re-enactment, read his written statement to the police, listened to his recorded interviews, neither watched his interview with Sean Hannity. They have no interest in what GZ said and did. The only thing that matters to them is that they have the gift of knowing everything that Trayvon said and did.
For theory number 2, Trayvon would know that GZ continued to look for him long enough for him to go into the house and change from dark-colored pants to light-colored khakis. Bigotvoyants did not watch the 7 Eleven video so cannot explain how Trayvon had on light-colored khakis in the store. The gift only allows bigotvoyants to see in black and white without shades in-between in convenience stores, malls, banks — places like that.
Bigovoyants have looked into the past and know that without seeing GZ through the windows of the house, Trayvon knew that GZ would not be on Retreat View Circle and was returning to his truck. Trayvon knew that if he flew through the air, ran across rooftops and leaped over patio furniture, that he could make it back to the T at the right moment to ambush GZ as he approached it. One bigotvoyant that posts regularly in comments to Yahoo articles about the GZ case uses the handle “Superthug” with a likeness of Trayvon in a cape, and speaks in first person, as a tribute for seeing everything that Trayvon did that night.
Bigotvoyants gave Trayvon pre-knowledge of everything he needed to attack GZ other than knowledge that GZ had a gun. You see, when the gift of clairvoyance was handed out to mankind, only bigotvoyants received ability to know when others have a gun. It’s this knowledge that makes them superior to others.
Bigotvoyants believe that GZ did not need the gift to know that Trayvon looked like he was on drugs or something and that something was wrong with him. Bigotvoyants argue that this is not foreknowledge but fact since all Black males, with the exception of Bill Cosby, look like they are on drugs or something — they all look like they are up to no good.
With their gift of knowing everything that Trayvon would do and say, they hope to place Trayvon Martin on trial for being a thug in exchange for GZ tried for murder.
The Associated Press released information that former neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman (GZ) wants to use the school records of Trayvon Martin as part of his defense strategy. Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, has sent subpoenas to the schools attended by 17-year Trayvon Martin. The subpoenas request disciplinary notices, suspension notices and tardiness records, among other things. O’Mara submitted 4 subpoenas, making it reasonable to believe that he wants Trayvon’s school records since Trayvon entered kindergarten.
I’ve read some comments from GZ fans, and they are so on the wrong track assuming how Trayvon’s school records can be used to support that Trayvon was a “thug.” For those who want to know how O’Mara can or cannot use Trayvon’s school records, Frederick Leatherman’s Law Blog has dedicated a page to the subject. Zimmerman: What Kind of Character Evidence will be Admissible at Trial?
Among comments on the internet by some GZ fans, they are angry that GZ’s school records were accidentally released to the public. They demanded that Trayvon’s school records be released as a tit-for-tat strategy. You see, with GZ’s fans, each time information is released to the public about GZ that is not favorable or is questionable, his fans develop a lie about Trayvon Martin. Then, they pressure GZ’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, to find evidence for their lies.
For instance, by his own admission, GZ is ADHD and takes meds for it as well as for anxiety. His fans countered with lies that Trayvon makes “lean” or “Purple Drink.” After someone discussed on the internet that GZ may have attended AA meetings with Joe Oliver, GZ’s fans countered with a lie that Trayvon was a drug dealer. After Witness 9’s statement was released to the public, GZ’s fans attacked Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin, painting him as a man with numerous wives, ex-wives, and girlfriends.
Although I do not believe that Trayvon’s school records contain anything that will disparage his character, that doesn’t mean that O’Mara cannot try. In GZ’s second bond hearing, O’Mara attempted a backdoor effort to have GZ address the judge without the State cross-examining him. Thus, there is good reason to suspect that O’Mara will attempt to interpret Trayvon’s suspension from school in his defense for why GZ killed him.
If O’Mara makes any attempt to go beyond physical and forensic evidence, and throws mud at Trayvon Martin, he will convey a powerful message to America’s parents and youth. That message is that anyone can kill children on the street and claim self-defense, and in disregard of physical and forensic evidence, the child’s suspension from school qualifies him or her as a “thug” who deserves to be killed.
Any effort to assassinate Trayvon Martin’s character might infuriate the majority of Americans. America’s citizens include parents and children. Remember how America reacted when Timothy McVeigh referred to the 19 children killed in the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City as “collateral damage”? Oh yes, I know. GZ says he killed an unarmed 17 yr old 11th grader in self-defense. If that is true, then physical and forensic evidence should support his story without attempting to conduct character assassination of a 17 yr old. Using any other strategy demonstrates to parents and teens that private citizens can profile, chase, and kill children, and consider them as mere collateral damage in any private citizen’s war on crime.
GZ’s fans are totally elated with O’Mara submitting the subpoenas. He is doing what they want, but not because GZ’s fans are actual supporters. GZ’s fans do not like and support George Zimmerman the person. To the best of public knowledge, not one fan of George Zimmerman, the person, has provided him with free housing in Seminole County. Not one fan of George Zimmerman, the person, has offered him a job that he can perform from home. His fans have another agenda, and it does involve racial superiority.
A sample of comments about donating to GZ’s defense fund provides further support that they are more concerned about an agenda than they are concerned with George Zimmerman, the person. Remember when GZ re-activated his website in effort to increase donations? Comments posted on a Pro Zimmerman website on that subject by GZ fans include:
- “Until I see strong evidence that MOM will vigorously defend George to the best of his ability,I will not be asking anyone to donate.”
The reply to that comment confirms that what they mean by “vigorously defend” is not what O’Mara does in the case, but rather who he is not attacking or defending in the media.
- “Yeah, and I’m sure tomorrow O’Mara will take to the airwaves and talk about the nightmares the entire Zimmerman family has been thrown into. The SOB made public statements about the terrible loss for the Martin family, but has never yet, to this day, ever even attempted to address what his clients family has been put through. Has O’Mara ever addressed the New Black Panther bounty? …. The answer is NO. …What has he ever done to fight against that, other than to say the sentiments are high and we just have to wait for it all to calm down. … Please stop with the “big secret plan” that O’Mara is engineering. He isn’t doing bupkis for his client and he knows it.”
Do you get the impression that unless GZ’s fans are calling the shots, that they won’t donate money to his defense fund? I get that impression. Do you get the impression that if they do donate to GZ’s defense fund, that they hold the premise that they own O’Mara? I get that impression. Do you also get the impression that they believe they have superior knowledge as to how O’Mara should proceed in representing GZ? I get that impression.
I am sure you remember paragraph “g” of the July 5, 2012 order of the court that sets forth;
“The Defendant shall not open or maintain a bank account.”
The following comments (from the same Pro Zimmerman website) demonstrate how GZ’s fans seek to circumvent that order of the court.
- “I think GZ should open his own account again, but maybe that is wrong thinking? I’d feel much better giving to his defense and living expense fund if it were going directly to him and not O’Mara. I was going to resume giving when he opened up his website again, but for some reason I cannot bring myself to do it. I may give in eventually, but right now I just can’t do it. I happily give to Robert & Gladys. Are any of you feeling the same or am I just being unreasonably cautious?
- “Just give to his parents and tell them you want it to go to GZ personal expenses.”
- “If my read on Robert and Gladys is correct, they are a family that takes take of all of their own, which would include George if the other website donation accounts dry up. NO? “
- “Any monies donated through the website go directly to Robert Zimmerman, Sr. It is a fund completely separate and apart from the GZ Legal Defense Fund, and all gifts made through the http://robertandgladys.com website link are disbursed at the sole discretion of Robert and Gladys Zimmerman.”
With O’Mara providing money to GZ for his living expenses, why would GZ need unknown amounts of cash in his pocket? GZ’s fans are not supporting him in their effort to circumvent the order of the court and the court’s reason for paragraph “g.” Rather, they are calling the shots and if by chance GZ gets in trouble for it, then it’s the “system” that’s corrupt because in their minds, GZ should had never been charged.
Not only does GZ’s fans disrespect the deceased and his parents, they disrespect the court and appear to think of O’Mara as nothing more than their messenger boy. IMO, he will make a grave mistake if he puts Trayvon on trial. It will present Trayvon Martin’s death as collateral damage in GZ’s personal war on crime. It will put all parents on notice that their children had better be perfect in school, and submit to adult men following them, or they can be shot dead in their neighbor’s backyard.
If Trayvon’s parents, family and friends should read this, I would like to share a dream with you for your encouragement. It is also for those who support justice for Trayvon.
I had a dream about Trayvon. In the dream, Trayvon was sitting at a desk. It was not a school desk or one of those desks designed for apartments. It was an office desk. He was smiling, at times throwing his head back laughing, and talking to no end. As in all dreams that I have about people who have passed on, I never hear their voice or understand what they are saying. So, I did not hear what Trayvon was saying, but wow — was he talking. There were papers on the desk that he picked up, looked at, and it appeared that he was organizing them. He was happy about it.
That was the dream.
The below video is a creation of LLMPapa. It touched my heart and I hope that it gives you courage and strength to know that there are people feeling your pain, and standing in faith and hope with you.
“…he’s on drugs or something.”
George Zimmerman’s photo from his MySpace Page
The reason for this addendum is because I was criticized on another blog for suggesting George Zimmerman’s ability to influence others to do his dirty work without proof.
Originally, a comment posted by George Zimmerman (GZ) on his MySpace page was presented to support his boastfulness in having others do his dirty work and going to jail without spilling the beans on him. However, we have recent documented, audio, and video evidence. I apologize for omitting the obvious. GZ communicated actions to his wife that led to her perjuring herself to the court for GZ’s benefit to be granted a low bond.
Just like GZ said on his MySpace page about getting his “boy,” to handle a “…lil somethin” do a year in jail and keep his mouth shut so GZ doesn’t get his “… ass pinched …” he did the same to, and expected the same from his wife, Shellie Zimmerman. At his bond hearing as Shellie Zimmerman was cross-examined, George sat, not only like a “potted palm” but in a threatening posture, weighing every word spoken by Shellie. Were the wheels in his brain turning, contemplating Shellie’s punishment if she told the truth?
ORIGINAL ARTICLE ——————————————————————————————————-
Another theory, but based on George Zimmerman’s (GZ) blatant lies and deception, he is a study that requires connecting the dots.
At about 40:06 of his interview with Investigator Serino, GZ states something that gives me reason to believe that his Neighborhood Watch (NW) activities were a cover-up for a burglary ring. George Zimmerman states that he has a cousin in prison who wrote him saying that he got off many times as a juvenile. Had he had someone to tell him differently, he might not have been in prison. Because of this, GZ decided to mentor youths. It is also the reason he gave for wanting to be a judge.
This is BULL! If we consider what GZ said with being a judge, it sounds as though he would be willing to deal out harsher punishment than the law allows. Certainly, as his cousin, GZ would know what his cousin did as a juvenile; and how he progressed to committing crime as an adult to end up in prison.
I am unfamiliar with the Florida judicial system of selecting judges, but where I’m from, judges are assigned to courts by the Chief Judge of the Circuit. Most newly elected judges are appointed to small claims cases. A judge hearing family court matters this year, can be appointed to hear traffic cases next year. So what would give GZ the impression, if he ever became a judge, that he could choose to preside solely over juvenile cases?
In his Hannity interview, GZ mentioned mentoring on Sunday evenings before he and Shellie went on their Sunday evening grocery-shopping run. One thing we know is that GZ could not be a tutor because he failed some of his community college classes and received low grades in others. So, what does he mean by “mentoring”? A mentor is someone that spends his or her time and expertise to guide the development of another person. GZ’s history of failing at business, unemployment, financial problems, arrests, and failing classes, tells us that he had no expertise, knowledge, or story of how to succeed to share as a mentor.
None of the juveniles that GZ mentored, neither their parents, have come forth to support GZ’s claims. It is my impression that GZ was not mentoring but rather, recruiting. He was recruiting Black male teens to commit burglaries in The Retreat at Twin Lakes. He knew, by what his cousin said, that juveniles are generally slapped on the wrist, not serving the same consequences as adults who commit burglaries.
Additionally, let’s not forget that O’Mara’s verified GZ’s MySpace page where he wrote;
“… I can hit my boy up to handle a lil somethin with my sister and he’s at my house with his boys on bikes before i hang up with her! They do a year and dont ever open thier mouth to get my ass pinched…”
George Zimmerman likes having others do his dirty work. He is not ethically opposed to having others serve jail time for doing wrong for his benefit. He associates with, or at least in the past associated with, guys who had no fear of going to jail.
When his cousin wrote the letter is unknown. What we do know is that GZ independently organized a Neighbor Watch in Retreat of Twin Lakes around August 2011. The President of the HOA was unaware of this until residents called him asking about a man coming to their homes with a clipboard. Being security of Neighbor Watch (NW) in gated communities is a good cover-up to commit crime. Many homeowners trust them. They tell them when they are going to be away from home, for instance, on vacation. They tell them whether or not they lock their doors; what time they leave for work and in some cases, what they recently purchased that they don’t want stolen.
After GZ organized NW, there were purported burglaries in that community thereafter and GZ observed nothing! He called in other things – open garage door; loitering; a server at his graduation party expecting to be paid; a little boy playing in the street – but no observations of potential burglars – until February 2, 2012.
That 2/2/12 call was for a person in front of or by Frank Taaffe’s house. Taaffe would later praise GZ for thwarting a possible burglary. The person was arrested about 2 weeks thereafter.
In spite of that arrest, GZ would use that incident to justify why Trayvon Martin appeared suspicious, and he alleged that Trayvon was standing in front of that same house.
It is my belief that the person arrested for attempted burglary of Frank Taaffes’ house was well-known to GZ, and GZ threw him under the bus. After doing so, GZ had to CYA so that person would not spill the beans that GZ is the fencer of stolen goods. What better way of doing it than to capture a strange teen and then claim a case of mistaken identity?
Another reason for GZ’s motivation the night of 2/26/12 is because GZ had failed and not obtained his college degree. Chances are that he realized he could not pass those required courses. There is something in his school records that questions whether he was approved for a student loan. GZ could kill two birds with one stone. The first would be to keep his mentored person off his ass, and the second would be to earn some brownie points to gain recognition and better employment. He could outdo the cops by not letting “them” get away. It was imperative that GZ restrain and retain an unsuspecting person that met or closely met the physical description of the person arrested for the 2/2/12 incident.
In his non-emergency call to 911, GZ said “They always get away” before he said “He’s running.” “They always get away” was a scripted statement. First, it conveyed that GZ disapproved of the police not arriving soon enough. Secondly, it conveys a plan to give him a reason to retain and restrain. Only Trayvon Martin ran, and that is when GZ went off script.
When Trayvon ran, did GZ refer to him as a funking ”goon” or “coon’ or “punk”? The “oon” sound is clear. If he said “goon” he would have no reason to lie about it because of the local gang calling themselves goons. Trayvon ran, and that motivated GZ to say “funking poons.” Trust me on this. The FBI and others were listening for a “c” before “oon,” but it is a “p.” Poon is a slang term for wimp. It is short for “poontang.” It’s the same as calling someone a pussy. A poon would be someone not wanting to go to jail for GZ; thus, the relationship between the mentored person GZ threw under the bus, and the pussy now running away from him. GZ wanted to confront, restrain and retain but the suspicious person was a pussy — a fucking poon — for running away.
Based on the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office “Count of Incidence Reports for The Retreat at Twin Lakes” from 3/15/10 – 3/14/12, there were 7 burglaries. That’s 3.5 burglaries per year. If there was a surge after NW as formed, that leads to the reasonable conclusion that GZ might have been involved in organizing that burglary ring.
GZ’s supporters argue that since the killing of Trayvon Martin, burglaries have stopped at The Retreat of Twin Lakes. Certainly they have. The fencer of stolen goods is in a safe-house with a GPS ankle bracelet tracking his every move. There is more ….
On 2/27/12, GZ visited his personal physician to get a note to return to work. While he was waiting to be interviewed on 2/29/12, GZ stated that he was going to Lake Mary for the weekend. The first Associated Press Story about the killing of Trayvon Martin was released March 8, 2012. For some reason however, GZ found it necessary to abandon his job and home the weekend after he killed Trayvon Martin. It is my sincere belief that not being able to give the police another person to blame for the 2/2/12 attempted burglary of Taaffe’s house, GZ immediately went into hiding because he feared the member of his burglary ring that he threw under the bus. There is more ….
There are things we do not know – may never know, but something motivated GZ the evening of Feb. 26, 2012 beyond seeing a person walking in the rain. I don’t know how burglars operate, but it seems logical to me that anyone planning to break into a house would not plan on doing that on a Sunday evening, alone, without transportation on a rainy night for a get-a-way.
Had he not killed Trayvon, GZ’s scheme still would have failed because Trayvon had only been in that area several days before he was killed. It is also my strong impression that GZ killed Trayvon because Trayvon was crying for help. His cries got the attention of residents. During his Hannity interview, GZ says that he was afraid because he did not want the cops showing up finding him standing there with a gun. We only need to consider the true chronological order for when GZ feared being found standing with a gun in his hand.
On March 19, 2012, Robert Zimmerman Sr. met with Investigator Jim Merck of the State’s Attorney Office, and Dale Crosby of the Florida Department of Law enforcement (FDLE). Robert Zimmerman Sr. is George Zimmerman’s father. Papa Zim’s statements reveal that by solely relying on his belief that it was George’s screams heard on the 911 tape, and that George had a broken nose, that the investigation should be closed.
When asked by the Investigator and FDLE officer if there was anything else Robert Zimmerman Sr. wanted to tell them or if there were any questions he had for them that they could answer, Robert Zimmerman Sr. replied,
“Not unless you can make all this end.”
As he continued to talk, Robert Zimmerman Sr. conveyed to the investigators what their decision should be, and how it should be presented to the public. Effectively, he suggested to them that someone, from some office should stand up and say what the investigation reveals rather than only saying that no charges are being brought. His suggestion was that by revealing the results of the investigation, it would prevent complaints that the Sanford Police Department and State of Florida cannot be trusted.
On March 19, 2012 when Robert Zimmerman Sr. spoke those words, he was well aware, and informed by the investigators at that meeting, that the investigation was on-going and had not concluded. Papa Zim’s suggestion effectively told the investigators to make-up findings (or rely solely on him saying GZ is innocent), so that no charges would be brought against GZ.
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.
There is so much we want to write regarding the George Zimmerman case.
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. Even if the FBI is convinced that George Zimmerman is not racist, we can’t tell by the comments of his supporters. His supporters actually congratulate him for racial profiling and killing a “thug”; want him acquitted to kill more; and encourages 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 the “Zimmbots” could ever hope for. (Blackbutterfly7 refers to Zimmerman supporters who take his inconsistent versions as gospel as “Zimmbots.” So now you know.)
