It happened in Tampa, Florida.
Sam Mobley, 70, has won awards and was recognized by and worked closely with the Tampa police to help rid the neighborhood of drug dealers. This week, Mobley was arrested, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for firing two warning shots at a convicted drug dealer. Mobley says that he thought the man had a gun in his hand. The man was not hit.
“I shot low to the ground,” said Mobley. “I didn’t shoot to kill.”
Tampa police arrested Mobley because they say Mobley was not on his property when firing the warning shots. Read the rest of this entry

In response to a string of recent break-ins, the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has given a local Pennsylvania chapter the go-ahead to form a neighborhood watch group.
“You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!” read fliers promoting the neighborhood watch group in Fairview Township. The leaflets appeared on the doorsteps of homes along Ridge Road on April 18, PennLive reports.
(Story continues below.)
“It’s just like any neighborhood watch program. It’s not targeting any specific ethnicity. We would report anything we see to law enforcement,” Frank Ancona, the organization’s imperial wizard and president, told PennLive. “We don’t hate people. We are an organization who looks out for our race. We believe in racial…

About 6 days ago, it was reported that Chief of Police Cecil Smith of Sanford, Florida, revamped the rules for neighborhood watch volunteers that include they cannot carry firearms while conducting neighborhood watch.
Now, he has changed his mind. The Orlando Sentinel and other sources report since the original announcement, that Chief Smith held a community meeting where he clarified the new rules for Neighborhood Watch. About 100 people attended. Read the rest of this entry
Sanford Chief of Police Cecil Smith, (formerly of Elgin, IL), took over that police department in April 2013. He saw that the Neighborhood Watch program needed reform and he has done just that.
During George Zimmerman’s trial, witness Wendy Dorvial testified that she asked George Zimmerman if he wanted to be a volunteer member of Citizens on Patrol. She testified that Zimmerman turned down her offer. At closing argument, Mark O’Mara, defense attorney for George Zimmerman, argued that if Zimmerman was a wannabe cop, that he would have taken the offer to join Citizens on Patrol. Mark O’Mara then proceeded to outright lie about the program saying that its volunteers get to act like cops.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement produced an abstract of Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.), taking a survey from counties using that program. The abstract provides references, one in which is the National Association of Citizens on Patrol.
NACP has an extensive, informative website. Along with describing its purpose and the benefit of being a volunteer in the community, it also provides accomplishments and the stories of volunteers. What caught my attention in regards to George Zimmerman, is the following;
“As the name implies, Citizens On Patrol are Citizens who, after being screened, background checked, and trained by their local law enforcement agency, patrol their communities acting as “Eyes and Ears” for law enforcement.”
The C.O.P. program provides vehicles with emergency lights. Volunteers ride two per car.”
The national association also sets forth;
“C.O.P.’s do not take enforcement action, they only observe and report. Citizen Patrol Volunteers are not authorized to carry weapons and are encouraged to avoid physical contact. C.O.P.’s greatest weapon is their established bond with local law enforcement and their ability to communicate directly with them by radio or cellular phones using special dedicated phone numbers.”
While medical clearance and passing a criminal background check might concern Zimmerman in meeting the qualifications, it’s two conditions of C.O.P. that immediately come to my attention that would cause Zimmerman to turn down Ms. Dorvial’s offer. Those conditions are that volunteers work in twos, and they cannot carry weapons.
As Wendy Dorvial testified, there are distinct differences between neighborhood watch and C.O.P. One is that volunteers with C.O.P. actually patrol. In Neighbor Watch, residents are not supposed to do anything beyond their everyday activities. Although Zimmerman was not supposed to patrol, he did. At least one time, he used his dog as an excuse for seeing a suspicious person outside of Frank Taaffe’s house. Anyone looking at the map for Retreat at Twin Lakes for where Zimmerman resided, where Frank Taaffe resides, and the location of the dog walk, can see there is no logical reason why Zimmerman would walk from his house to Frank Taaffe’s house to get to the dog walk. Zimmerman did say that he walked his dog on the dog walk where he killed Trayvon. That dog walk and Frank Taaffe’s house are in opposite directions.
Another distinct difference is that C.O.P. volunteers work in pairs. It is logically safer to work in pairs when patrolling. George Zimmerman patrolling alone, gave him opportunity to do what he wanted without witnesses.
An important distinction is that C.O.P. volunteers cannot carry weapons. Zimmerman stated on Sean Hannity’s program that he carried his gun everywhere other than to work. Having a conceal carry license does not give C.O.P. volunteers authority to carry weapons, anymore than employees working in an airport or courthouse with conceal carry permits cannot carry weapons at work. Citizens on Patrol are not deputized.
In conclusion, George Zimmerman did not refuse volunteering for C.O.P. because he isn’t a cop wannabe. Rather, George Zimmerman refused volunteering for C.O.P. because its rules of working in pairs, and not carrying weapons, were too restricting.
The following video contains testimony by Wendy Dorvial regarding C.O.P., and Mark O’Mara’s misrepresentation to the jury.

Monday, July 8, 2013
Koppelli’s Gym owner, Adam Pollack, was arrested in March 2013 for attacking a woman and threatening to cut her fingers and toes off. Pollack testified today that George Zimmerman joined his gym in 2010 and began training in “grabbling” then switched to boxing. He testified that Zimmerman was trained in how to get free from being mounted, and how to protect his face from punches. Zimmerman did not advance quickly because he was obese and had no previous athletic experience.
Wednesday – Day 8 of Trial
(Tons of thanks to croakerqueen123 for recording.)
The day begins with the court denying the defense’s motion regarding entry of tapes of Zimmerman’s NEN calls for the 6 months before he killed Trayvon Martin.
Thanks again to croakerqueen123 for recording the trial and uploading to YouTube.
On the evening of February 26, 2012, a resident of the Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, FL., called 911 to report cries for help. Her call captured screams and the gunshot that ended the life of unarmed, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Admitted killer and accused murderer, George Zimmerman, awaits trial for 2nd degree murder, which is scheduled to begin on June 10, 2013. George Zimmerman claims that he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense.
In a video, Xy11xy brings forth profound analysis of the screams captured on the 911 call. She begins with Robert Zimmerman Sr.’s own words to start her analysis, and ends with George Zimmerman’s need to silence Trayvon Martin. Xy11xy’s conclusion is confirmed by George Zimmerman himself. In his interview with Sean Hannity, Zimmerman said that he was terrified that night? Why was Zimmerman terrified? He told Hannity;
ZIMMERMAN: “I also thought the police were going to come and see me with the firearm and shoot me. I mean, I was terrified.”
Does this not sound like a man who believes that the arriving police would perceive him as a criminal because he is holding a gun? But, holding the gun is not all Zimmerman and his dad claim was happening when Zimmerman killed Trayvon. George claims that he was crying out for help. Robert Zimmerman Sr. claims that George sounded like he was screaming for his life. Why would the arriving police perceive a man holding a gun, but screaming for his life, as someone they should shoot?
In the following video, Zimmerman says that after he shot Trayvon Martin, he holstered his weapon and immediately got on top of Trayvon. Therefore, Zimmerman could not have been terrified that the police would arrive and see him with his firearm and shoot him after he shot Trayvon. Zimmerman could only be terrified that the arriving police would see him with his firearm and shoot him before he killed Trayvon Martin. Is that logical based on Zimmerman’s version of what happened?
According to Zimmerman, when he fired his gun, Trayvon was straddled him, leaning over placing all of his weight on Zimmerman’s nose. Also according to Zimmerman, the only hesitation between pulling his gun and shooting Trayvon, was the time he took to make sure his left-hand was not in the path of the bullet. When then, was Zimmerman terrified that the police would see him with his firearm and shoot him?
- Certainly, it could not have been with the police arriving and seeing a man with a gun while hearing him scream for his life, straddled and bloody with the kid going for the holstered gun.
- Certainly, it could not have been with the police arriving and seeing a teen bashing a man’s head on concrete and punching him in the face. Why shoot the man on the bottom who is on the receiving end of a physical assault, while screaming for his life?
- Certainly, it could not have been with the police arriving and seeing a teen smothering another man. Why shoot the man on the bottom who in spite of being smothered, screams for his life?
So, we ask again, when was Zimmerman terrified that the police would see him with his firearm and shoot him? Would that only be possible if Trayvon was screaming for his life because Zimmerman was holding the gun?
There are many supporters for Justice for Trayvon Martin. Those supporters include family members of Trayvon Martin, civil rights activists, bloggers, and anyone else who deems that the killing of Trayvon Martin was unjustified in every regard.
Mr. Mark O’Mara likes to tell his spiel of how the Martin/Fulton family hired a publicist named Ryan Julison to champion their cause in getting media recognition. The fact of the matter is that it was Natalie Jackson who sought him out and hired him for the family. She knows as well as all people of color, a case like this will not get the media attention it deserves without a publicist.
The shooting of Trayvon was on local TV in Florida. For two weeks, other than those locally in Florida, no one else knew about the killing of an unarmed teenager in Sanford, Florida. Considering the options left for the family, since no arrest was made, a publicist was an option to use. Tracy and Sybrina were interviewed on CBS News Morning. They have done what other parents do; get on TV and plead their case. I have often viewed news cast of tragedies happening to families, but the majority of those people who get to have their say on TV are generally white. Most news media outlets will put the face of a white child missing more often than a black child missing. Most media outlets will put the face of a killing of a white person more often than the killing of a black or brown person. This is the bias of the media outlets. This practice of media bias has been done for a very long time.
The sheer fact that a publicist had to be employed speaks to this mindset and recognition of media bias. A crime committed against a black person is not as newsworthy as a crime committed against a white person.
Which leads me to the power of the internet.
Through a law school linkserv, Kevin Cunningham learned about the killing of Trayvon Martin on March 8th 2012, 11 days after Trayvon was killed.
Kevin Cunningham, 31, of Washington, D.C., attended Howard University. The student body of Howard University today consists of 80% black and 1% white.
Kevin Cunningham used the power of the internet. He created the petition on Change.org. This petition garnered more attention than what the publicist was trying to do at the time.
O’Mara loves to rant and rave about how Martin/Fulton hired a publicist to get “their” message out. He is so wrong, I just had to call it out.
Granted the publicist did some work, but it was the petition that made it national and global news through the use of the internet.
The petition, from its inception garnered 100 signatures the first day. After a few days, it was 10,000.
A spokesperson, Megan Lubin from Change.org contacted Kevin Cunningham and suggested, which is a rare thing for this organization to do, would be to turn over the petition to Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton.
Quote from Sybrina Fulton:
“When we heard about the petition, we were overwhelmed that someone we didn’t know would take the time and effort to raise awareness about our son,” Trayvon’s mother said.
She speaks not only for the efforts of Kevin Cunningham, but for all those who signed the petition.
The petition in its final tally was 2,278,303. It is currently, the largest petition in Change.org. history. On April 11, 2012, it was announced that a capias for the arrest of the neighborhood watch captain that killed Trayvon Martin was issued, charging him, George Michael Zimmerman, with 2nd degree murder. State’s Attorney Angela Corey said that they were not pressured by outside forces to arrest George Zimmerman. The results of the investigation give evidence of 2nd degree murder, but that investigation would not have happened if not but for the efforts of Tracy, Sybrina, lawyers, ordinary people, and Kevin Cunningham who posted a petition that let everyone know that George Zimmerman should be held accountable for the killing of Trayvon Martin.
O’Mara doesn’t like pointing out the fact that the petition and the will of the family did more in a matter of days than any publicist would or could have done in the same time frame.
O’Mara and company would like to have the American & Global Public believe that if not for the hired help of a publicist, the killing of Trayvon Martin and the pending case of Fl vs GZ would not have been in the public eye.
HE IS DEAD WRONG!
We are included in those 2,278,301. The public outcry on the streets and on the internet are the reason why the killing of Trayvon Martin is front and center. Not because of the sole work of a publicist.
We demanded Justice — this call came from everybody.
We intend to get that Justice for Trayvon Martin.
If not for people like Kevin Cunningham who had the courage and the idea of starting a petition, I believe this case would have never gotten to where it is now. It’s the people who spoke up against the injustice of it all that has gotten to where we are now, and a lot of those people are on the internet. We don’t have access to big media outlets. We don’t have the money to buy air time. But our voices are just as powerful if not more than the media and radio.
Case in point: The defendant’s family has been on TV an Radio. It has gotten them, nothing, nada, zilch.
No amount of TV coverage can speak as much as our signatures, petitions, marches, blogs, and our continued support for Trayvon Martin and his family.
The internet can be a powerful tool to use for creating awareness. I am proud to be a part of the positive work and continuing efforts in our quest for Justice for Trayvon Martin.
The one year anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin is in three days. I thought it was appropriate to go back and look at who and when people got involved.
Kevin Cunningham was at the front of the line.
Kevin Cunningham, from our home here at BlackButterfly7, thank you from the bottom of all of our hearts.

On 4/11/2012, George Zimmerman was arrested on charges of 2nd degree murder, and from jail, spoke to his wife about money donated to his defense fund. By his instructions, Shellie Zimmerman spent money, transferred money, put money in a safe deposit box, and then lied to the court about her knowledge of that money.
When the prosecutors gathered evidence of the misrepresentation, they put their ducks in a row and filed papers in court asking that George Zimmerman’s bond be revoked. In deciding to revoke George Zimmerman’s bond, Judge Lester stated to attorney Mark O’Mara:
“Does your client get to sit there like a potted palm and let you lead me down the primrose path? That’s the issue.”
George Zimmerman (GZ) was not required to testify in court during his bond hearing, but he was required to tell his legal counsel the truth. Had he done so, there would have been no need for witnesses, such as Shellie Zimmerman, to testify about their finances.
That was not the first time that GZ sat like a potted palm. In calendar year 2011, GZ received money in a legal matter and kept it secretive from a court of law.
On May 10, 2006, GZ filed a complaint in the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division. That complaint was against Aames Funding Corporation, d/b/a Aames Home Loan (Aames). That complaint alleged that GZ worked for Aames from 10/1/2005 to January 27, 2006, and that the company failed to pay him for overtime. (Complaint linked at bottom of page)
Paragraph 8 of that complaint sets forth that GZ retained the Pantas Law Firm to represent him in the matter and agreed to pay them reasonable attorney’s fees for its services.
On 5/5/2009, a “Suggestion of Bankruptcy” was filed in the case, setting forth that Aames had filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, requiring that the District Court enter a stay of proceedings in GZ’s case. The court entered a stay of proceedings and thereafter, GZ’s attorney filed periodic status reports.
On 4/6/2012, a “Status Report” was filed in Case No. 6:06-CV-630-ORL-22JGG, George Zimmerman vs. Aames Funding Corp. Attorney Pantas set forth in paragraph 3;
“Previously, the undersigned was informed that payment was expected sometime in 2012. Recently, the undersigned has learned that said payment was actually sent to Mr. Zimmerman sometime in 2011. “
(Status report linked at bottom of page)
GZ did not inform his attorney that he received the money. As set forth in paragraph 2, the attorney for the trustee in the bankruptcy case notified GZ’s attorney that an actual payment was made directly to GZ, and that;
“Mr. Zimmerman has since cashed the trustee’s check. “
Remember paragraph 8 of the complaint? GZ agreed to pay reasonable fees to his attorneys. In the “Status Report” filed 4/6/2012, GZ’s attorney sets forth;
“No fees or costs were deducted, and Mr. Zimmerman retained the entire amount of the check.”
A copy of the check is attached to the Status Report, providing that it was issued to GZ on July 7, 2011 in the amount of $18, 219.71.
Maybe or maybe not by coincidence, on 4/9/2012, the Monday following the filing of that Status Report, GZ launched his website and although not charged with a criminal offense, asked for donations for his legal defense. In about 8 months after receiving $18, 219.71, and although having a full-time job, GZ was financially broke.
On 4/10/12, attorneys Hal Uhrig and Craig Sonner held a press conference saying that they lost track of Zimmerman on Sunday when he stopped returning their calls.
According to Mark Osterman, after GZ killed Trayvon Martin, GZ spent about 6 weeks at his home in Lake Mary, FL. In Sonner and Uhrig’s press conference, they stated that GZ was no longer in the state of Florida. The six weeks that GZ spent at Osterman’s house suggests that he left right about the time when attorney Pantas notified the court that he was only recently made aware that in July 2011, GZ received over $18,000.
GZ’s acts of desperation that weekend might not be solely related to the murder investigation that was taking place. His wrong doing in not notifying his attorney in the civil case of receiving the check in July 2011, neither paying costs and fees, was now documented in court record.
For whatever reason, GZ could no longer remain at his best friend’s house in Lake Mary, FL. GZ found it necessary to run, to stop communicating with his attorneys, and — he needed money. GZ had sat like a potted palm for 8 months, leading his attorney down the primrose path.
GZ betrayed his legal counsel in the civil matter. Is he also capable of betraying Mark O’Mara?
“…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 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.)
Check back often. We are just getting started.
