It wasn't that.  Zimmerman had stated that he was beaten by Trayvon.  Some video has recently surfaced.  The video shows the police escorting Zimmerman and that was filmed just moments after the alleged beating.  The video shows no sign of Zimmerman having been beaten in the manner he describes.  Not a welt, cut or bruise on him. 

 

So, the implication here is that some cops are in on his lie and cover up.  Get it? 

 

You think this isn't being investigated by other law enforcement agencies?  Stay tuned.  You'll see Zimmerman and whoever helped him lie go down all at once when the investigation is through.

Logic dictates, that in the unlikely event that pro - gunners become as violent and destructive as the anti - gunners claim them to be, there would not be a solitary anti - gunner remaining.

well, puerto ricans are very close to black when it comes to blood



How do you figure that?  I think of Puerto Ricans as mostly white Hispanics, not black.  And the 2010 US Census shows that only 12% of the population considers themselves black.


i'm assuming you aren't latina or latino, right? i assume you've never lived in san juan like i have, right? if you trace back on some puerto rican's lineage you could find out they are white latina/o or black latina/o. yes, the majority of puerto rico consider themselves white, but if you really want to get technical most puerto ricans consider theirselves to be mestizo which is white and native american. puerto rican blood is a mix of several things, but definitely isn't white. if you look up the natives to puerto rico you will realize how unwhite they are. back in 1509 they did believe in intermarriage. just ask pedro mejias.

 

i know what i am, thanks.

 

btw, my culture and background are very strong because i know about both sides of my family. my mother is from san juan, puerto rico and my father is from port harcourt, nigeria. i'm as mixed as it gets.


 

Why exactly does it matter what I am, or what you are as far as that goes?  My whole point was what Puerto Ricans identity themselves as.


you're white. i already know this.

 

it is important where you come from. my mother being 100% boricua she believes i should know these things, but smilez pretty much told me you're a arrogant bastard and talking to you about things like this is moot...so have a good day.

Don't forget state troopers.  They have detectives too.  This case is getting way too much publicity to be ignored.  Even Obama had something to say about it.

Good point. The police didn't even seem to try and investigate this properly, and they seem WAY too casual around a man who just shot an unarmed person.

But I was the one who Had the Gun."

Ugh ,I hate this crap.

 

Oh and Astro, Trayvon was not a thug. That was an entirely different Black boy's facebook page that has been spread around by stormfrontin' racist conservatives to justify a child's death. I see you went quiet after that little remark. Even if he was a thug, he was an unarmed thug. Killing someone because you think they're a thug, makes you no better than that thug. It would not be justified either way. It makes you a criminal, just like that thug.

Yeah, but it shouldn't harm the case against him, since various sources have already given the entire quote in context. They should find whoever on the Today Show edited the tape this way and fire that person, and issue an apology.

See, this is the kind of information that needs to be coming out.  I doesn't change the basic fact that Zimmerman had a gun and the person he pursued did not.  But dehumanizing Zimmerman is not constructive.

Unless he contracted a serious illness, it's unlikely he lost more than five to ten pounds in that stretch.  Ten pounds would be phenomonal at that.

Well, in the surveillance video he doesn't look like he weighed 250lbs unless he and the cops with him were all 9 feet tall, if that's what you're implying....

There's spin going on all over this #### ####.

And you know what? It's ALL the media here trying to get us riled up. This case is a #### cash cow for them in ratings and views.

Let the #### Feds handle this. The court of public opinions is corrupted as all hell with how the media has handled this. I, for one, am ignoring this case from now on. I refuse to give them another advertising dollar in views. It's just a #### soapbox to people on both "sides."

This is definitely what I'm beginning to think.

We'll see what turns up when a proper investigation as done. Until then, it is impossible to say for certain what happened.

No, I'm pointing out that there seems to be no proof of anything because the police fuuuuuudgeed up the investigation so badly. Where's the proof of who weighed what when it happened?

Not all the proof is out yet. They're holding some stuff still, or so they say.

I think they're claiming they have pictures of zimmerman's injuries...
We're all in it together, kid.

I've been citing that 250 pound figure the whole time...

Sounds like there's a lot more spin on this than I initially suspected.

See, this is the kind of information that needs to be coming out.  I doesn't change the basic fact that Zimmerman had a gun and the person he pursued did not.  But dehumanizing Zimmerman is not constructive.


The problem is the entire jury pool has been tainted by... Lets call it.. Questionable media coverage.

That absolutely will be brought up in trial the mother has already copy righted her sons name this is going for the long run.. Suit and counter suit..

They the media

Did much more than dehumanize zimmerman not to take away from the end result a boy dead the original picture the media painted of him was way off.

Not to mention all of the celebrity attention this has gotten.. Giving out home addresses of innocent people putting out bounty's on Zimmermann head.. And the list continues..

 

The entire thing has been over hyped for attention ####'s and handled very poorly by the police there.

I found this on a sports site for some reason

I wonder how Jessie Jackson feels

http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/dwyane-wades-nephew-among-11-w
ounded-in-chicago-shootings-2-kille...

 

up.. And now the current thing they will be focused on is this tragedy..

 

http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/02/us/california-shooting/index.html?h
pt=hp_t1

 

Watch as information on the trayvon martin shooting takes a back seat and the misinformation that was put out is quietly ignored as new news replaces old..

I'm guessing a special on religious institutions with a tie in to healthcare... Also maybe a psychologist explaining the generic view of religion..

That's an exaggeration. A case this high profile will only garner more scrutiny, not less, and other similar high profile cases (Casey Anthony?) were far more one-sided and still ended up with no conviction.

And, blame the media all you want, but they were only feeding off of what the general public was feeling and abusing that. The cops should have arrested the guy and left it at that, then the story would have died and justice would have run its course. I'm not defending the abdominal reporting that has happened, but that doesn't mean the coverage wouldn't have still been damaging if the truth had been reported.

This is a bad situation. Anytime an unarmed man is killed by an armed person, there is a problem. Compound it by the fact that the armed person approached the unarmed one and you have more than enough cause for a full fledged investigation. #### at the media for how they conflated it, but don't pin Zimmerman's misfortune on them - he was already screwed.

Well, as I said in another thread, and I did in this thread, I opted to stay out of the conversation until more informaiton surfaced. The fact that everyone, including me, are arguing over something we have little-to-no detail about and we are missing some key information to determine the cause of this situation. In that time a grainy video came out that lacked detail, and everyone heralded the Bigfootesque quality video as proof positive that Zimmerman had no injuries. Well, today it came out that the video has been digitally enhanced, and it does show injuries. Again, I'm staying out of this until more information comes forward on how the altercation started, but I thought I would post this simply because nobody had bothered to.

maybe that's how he got his wife :smileyvery-happy:

I'd noticed it but I thought it seemed a little weird... they didn't explain how exactly they had "digitally enhanced" it. Seems a little like it could just be bull####.

It very well could be. Somebody may have something they want to prove, or just troll. However, the video enhancement was done by a professional company.

 

I had seen the original and I was starting to sway back to the side that this kid was killed in cold blood, but I decided to wait. Looks like I'll be waiting a long time to see what actually happened, if we can even get the full story.

maybe that's how he got his wife :smileyvery-happy:
