On February 26, 2012, a 17-year old-young boy was visiting his father in Sanford, Florida. It was a rainy evening. He went to a convenience store for candy and juice. On his way back, a neighborhood watchman alleged that he was on his way to Target to get groceries when he saw a suspicious teen. He followed the teen in his truck, then on foot. Trayvon Martin was shot in the heart with a hollow point bullet by George Zimmerman.
What happened in this nation as a consequence of George Zimmerman’s actions exposed the good, the bad, and the ugly. Trayvon’s life, death, and legacy, has motivated many people of all races and from all walks of life to come together for the good, including advocating for changes to stand your ground law and gun control.
We shall not forget.
In support for justice for Trayvon, LLMPapa produced videos during Zimmerman’s pending trial. In the following, he addresses where a journalist wanted to interview him and he gives his response.
After the fire, the fire still burns. The heart goes on.
Today, let’s celebrate Trayvon’s legacy.
LLMPapa is dedicated to, and excellent in, showing to tell.
Before Zimmerman’s trial, LLMPapa went as far as purchasing materials necessary to demonstrate that Trayvon Martin’s shirts had to have been pulled and held in order for the bullet holes to match up in the clothing, but not match with the gunshot wound in Trayvon’s chest.
(Zimmerman’s defense would argue that the Arizona can in the pocket of Trayvon’s hoodie would cause that piece of clothing to sag, omitting that the bullet hole aligned with that in the sweatshirt that Trayvon wore underneath the hoodie. That sweatshirt did not have a pocket and thus, no reason to sag and lining up perfectly with the bullet hole in the hoodie.)
Today, LLMPapa put together a video demonstrating that Robert Zimmerman Sr., and George Zimmerman’s account for what George was doing before he allegedly left for Target on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012, is inconsistent with Shellie ‘s account.
Is this important? It could be. For one, it questions George’s state of mind that evening. Secondly, it questions why he felt it necessary to be dishonest. If he indeed left his home to go to Target and was distracted by seeing a “suspicious” teen, then there was no reason to address what he did previous to leaving his home.
Here is LLMPapa’s video titled “Shame.”
We are called True Warriors for Justice for Trayvon for many reasons. One of those reasons is our unwavering commitment of making sure that George Zimmerman faces a jury of his peers in the killing of Trayvon Martin. A gentleman referred as LLMPapa has produced several videos regarding the Trayvon Martin murder case. He has produced more than 300 videos on his YouTube channel. His videos are extremely informative by using visual and audio with the case evidence that has been made available to us, the general public. He has a unique ability of taking the evidence and putting it in context so the average viewer may understand the evidence. His videos are not limited to just evidence documents, but also what the defendant, the defendant’s family and lawyers have said in interviews, radio and social media. He has made some humorous videos as well.
Mr. Michael Knox, a forensic expert, was interviewed by Tony Pipitone, and put together a demonstration using 2 cardboard cut outs and two white T-shirts.
Mr. Michael Knox has also written a book called “Intermediate Range”. I admit I did buy the book. He presented his book as an unbiased view of the evidence. If I remember correctly, Knox also said he had a copy of GZ’s concealed weapons license in the book.
Fellow bloggers know that I love having links and have an extensive library of the evidence available. I share it with fellow bloggers when they need a quick reference. Thus, upon reading Mr. Knox’s interview and watching his demonstration, I was sadly disappointed to find that he does not take all available evidence into account. Also, in my view and in the view of many others, Mr. Knox did not conduct his experiments authentically and omits pertinent evidence in order to reach his conclusions.
Mr. Knox comes to the faulty conclusion and assertions based on his belief that Trayvon Martin was on top of Zimmerman when Zimmerman shot Trayvon in the heart. In Mr. Knox’s expert opinion, the position of the misalignment of the bullet hole through both garments is due to “sag” and gravity of Trayvon Martin’s hooded sweatshirt. However, in his demonstration, Mr. Knox stands while firing the shot and his cardboard substitution for Trayvon is upright.
We have found his conclusion to be flawed.
The Medical Examiner’s autopsy reports that the trajectory of the bullet was directly front to back.
Trayvon Martin was either flat on his back or standing when he was shot.
Either way, the bullet trajectory can be accomplished from both positions, but not from a leaning position as the defendant claims and Mr. Knox claims.
If Trayvon was leaning over GZ, as Mr. Knox asserts, then as an credible expert, Mr. Knox should have produced his demonstration that way and traced the path of the bullet.
Witnesses 5, 16,12 and 18 all said they saw GZ on top of Trayvon at the time or immediately following the shot. Mr. Knox apparently took the word of one witness, (wit-6) and GZ’s statements over the totality of all the witnesses statements and evidence. We are all aware that Witness 6 later changed his statements of what he saw. First claiming that he saw MMA style beating, he later gave an interview with State prosecutors that he saw no fists being thrown, nor heard sounds of flesh hitting flesh.
We have come to the conclusion, based on the evidence, that Zimmerman had a hold of Trayvon Martin’s hooded sweatshirt and his underneath sweatshirt, when he shot Trayvon in the heart. In his videoed statements, Zimmerman demonstrates this as well by reaching out his left arm and clasping his left hand.
Recently, LLMPapa made a series of videos challenging Michael Knox’s conclusions presented in his interview with Tony Pipitone of Channel Six news of Orlando, Fl.
The standards that we mostly use in defense of Trayvon Martin being murdered are to use the evidence we have available and reasonable speculations that can be backed up with data available to us.
According to Mr. Knox’s blog post dated May 18th 2012, he posted two scenarios.
Excerpt taken from blog post dated 5/2012:
“In order for there to be this much distance between the clothes and the skin, one of two things had to happen: either (1) the clothing was being pulled away from Martin’s body (presumably by George Zimmerman) or (2) Martin was on top of Zimmerman, chest downward, with his clothes hanging due to gravity.”
Fast forward to our present date, where we have more detailed information per discovery. Knox chose to conclude the second scenario was the best to present in his interview with Tony Pipitone, which was that “Martin was on top of Zimmerman, chest downward, with his clothes hanging due to gravity.” Mr. Knox does not say why he abandoned the aforementioned scenario number 1, for his scenario number two. Therefore, we must conclude that Mr. Knox chooses to believe Zimmerman’s narrative of being on the bottom when he shot Trayvon Martin.
LLMPapa addressed the Zimmerman being straddled story when he shot Trayvon in the following video.
A poster named Patricia postulated a long time ago that Zimmerman was on top of Trayvon using a painful restraining maneuver to keep Trayvon down. At the very, very, very beginning of witness-11’s 911 call, we clearly hear the words “I’m begging you, get offffffffffff”. We posted about that in September 2012.
I along with others firmly believe that those words screamed are from Trayvon Martin. Two independent audiologists confirmed that the screams heard on the 911 call are not the voice of George Zimmerman. They have been listed on the State’s witness list.
In all of the many statements made by Zimmerman, either by written statements or interviews with LE, FDLE, walk thru the next day, he has never claimed to say those words, “I’m begging you. Get off”. He only claims that he yelled for help.
I reiterate again; Mr. Knox, “the expert”, did not listen or review all the evidence to date, before going on National Television to claim conclusively in his expert opinion that the shot came from underneath Trayvon Martin.
We know the amount of effort that goes into LLMPapa’s videos and we all love and admire him for his continuing support for Trayvon Martin. LLMPapa has declined several interview requests from several newspaper reporters. In one video he explained his reasons why.
Our commitment is a shared one. After viewing the series I felt, as a True Warrior for Justice, I must get LLMPapa’s videos out to the general public for everyone to view and compare with Knox’s analysis.
Mr. Knox started a small Twitter war with LLMPapa, asserting that his measurements were off and used 5 syllable words on his blog to try to deflect his errors. He immediately tweeted Mr. Pipitone, Robert Zimmerman Jr, Charles Blow, and Benjamin Crump among others, apparently in effort to save his reputation. In one of his twitter responses, he wants to meet LLMPapa for a face to face. Our question to Mr. Knox is, how did you become aware of LLMPapa’s videos? Are you aware that there are Zimmerman supporters who instigate arguments and defame those disagreeing with them by using partial truths with malicious lies about their personal lives? Would you want to subject LLMPapa, or anyone for that matter, to massive cyber-harassment and illegal doxing?
Mr. Knox, you may not understand our reasons for being active in seeking justice for Trayvon Martin. While your reasons may only be to sell a self- published book, get a few new clients, get on TV, and maybe just maybe be called as an “expert”witness in the case of Florida vs. George Zimmerman, those are not our reasons. You claim things in your expert view that do not agree with all evidence. For instance let’s take gravity for an example. The back of Mr. Zimmerman’s head shows blood going towards his ears, indicating that GZ was leaning forward. The photo is time stamped at 7:19, 3 minutes after he shot Trayvon. In the photo, there is no dirt,grit from the pavement, debris, or grass on the back of his head to indicate he was on his back when he fired that fatal shot. Blood rivulets are going forward toward his ears. How is it possible that blood flows upward for Mr. Zimmerman, presumably on his back for a whole minute, while supposedly being beaten. Do the laws of gravity not apply to him?
Gravity does not lie.
But Mr. Zimmerman does.
The fact of the matter is you did not do your homework. You did not do due diligence in fact-finding and presenting a valid argument for your analysis. You got called out by a “layman “and you will not own up to it. Myself, along with others, shall continue to shed light on the darkness that you and others spread. Experts like Mr. Knox do a disservice to their profession and the judicial system. We shall continue our quest in keeping the public aware of people like you where the word of an “expert” can set a guilty man free, and send an innocent one to his grave without Justice.
For about eight months now, LLMPapa has produced videos on the tragedy that happened to Trayvon Martin. They range from profound videos addressing discovery material, to videos uplifting Trayvon Martin’s parents. Some are peppered with humor, others with deep compassion, and others with investigative seriousness.
Averaging three minutes, LLMPapa’s videos get straight to the point, hitting the target, awakening viewers to truths. LLMPapa does this without adding his opinion in voiceovers. He meets that requirement taught in journalism classes to show; not tell.
Currently, there are 394 subscribers to his Youtube channel with over 230,000 views. His Youtube channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/llmpapa.
The following video is the first LLMPapa video that I watched. It was embedded on TheJBMission blog. I was immediately captivated. In the second video below, LLMPapa uses George Zimmerman’s own words to support the previous video.
We here at Blackbutterfly7 salute you, LLMPapa.

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!
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.”
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.
