See, here's the thing, NONE of us know what really happened and the true facts of the case. We only know the picture that is painted by the media. Hopefully, justice is served and the process works and the jury and judge who WILL get the facts of the case can render a fair decision. THAT is what I pray for.

I'm not getting into this, or i will be banned from these forums. One point that i will make... What gives any organization the right to put up "wanted posters", calling for a person's head. Regardless of the outcome of the trial, those people responsible for the posters, should be prosecuted!!!

I don't know what really happened, but something similar happened here. A city cop shot and killed a kid for pulling a gun on him. Come to find out, it was a cap gun, but it was well past midnight in a poorly lit area of the city and all the cop saw was a kid with a gun. The city wound up having to put this man and his family into witness protection because of all the media backlash. The media took great prides in showing this kid as an innocent kindergartner when in fact, he was in his teens. They only showed this kid in his kindergarten cap and gown photo, rather than a current photo of him just before he died.
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the rest of the obnoxious gas bags showed up and added fuel to the fire, which is the same thing they're doing here. The same thing happened - they said the kid had a bag of Cheetos, but after repeated requests to produce the bag Sharpton and Jackson said the kid had, they never produced it. They swore up and down, and every which way from Sunday that they had that bag of Cheetos in evidence for when the "truth" came out, but they never once produced it for the prosecution or defense to use in a wrongful death suit. The cop was eventually found not guilty and was moved out of state and away from the death threats.
The media is crucifying this man before he's even been to trial. He'll be found guilty because if he's not, God save us all.

He's obviously guilty. He's a non black who shot and killed a black. Even though in the Pork and Beans blacks shoot and kill blacks almost on an hourly basis, that's fine. But if a black is killed by a non black, he's guilty. Doesn't matter if the black may or may not have attacked the non black, as medical photos seem to suggest...

Whatever opinion you may have of the Trayvon / Zimmerman incident, know this: Zimmerman is innocent until "proven" guilty in a court of law! Everyone agrees that a tragedy took place, but many of us dispute the reason(s) for the tragedy. Having said that, today's news media is in the business of acquiring viewership and if that means manipulating the facts, so be it. Who cares if a city gets burned down because "actual facts" contradicted the misrepresentation of the facts that viewers were visually fed for many months? I have no idea what happened during the confrontation and I will stick by my comments in my initial post in this thread.

Protesters declare 'I am Trayvon Martin,' but who was he? - CNN.com While I do not believe this kid was a saint by any means, I think it's important to remember that he was a "kid" and I don't know too many kids that will go through their teenage years without a little trouble every now and then. I know I got into a LOT of trouble between 13 and 19, and I turned out all right. . It's just a shame that Trayvon won't ever get the chance to show how he would have turned out.
Oh, and BTW, going back to the Skittles for a sec. Here is a video that shows the last few moments of Trayvon's life. He went to the store that night and bought an ice tea and the bag of skittles that was found in his pocket that night. Video: Trayvon Martin's last moments | HLNtv.com

Staying far away from this thread before it really turns nasty!

Anyone watch The First 48 on the ID Channel? Pay attention to the episodes. Many of them take place in and around Miami. There's a slum area called the Pork and Beans, by the detectives, and on most episodes you'll see what I'm talking about. Blacks killing blacks all the time there and not one media outcry like the one on this Trayvon Martin case. Why is that?
A non black killed a black and you can call me racist if you want, but I'm a realist. I pay attention to this stuff. If Zimmerman was black, there'd be no media coverage on this. But since Trayvon Martin was made out to be an angel, even though he was skipping school at the time, you get my drift.

A black cop who was on a hot call, with lights and sirens on, had the right of way and hit a white girl, killing her instantly. The girl was at fault, because she ran a stop sign and was broad sided. Nothing was ever done because the cop had the right of way and the girl was at fault.
The DeAuntae Farrow case was a white cop shooting a black child. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the rest of his followers showed up, marched through towns holding signs and demanding that black people quit shopping in town, because it was "racist" and the city was trying to sweep the child's death under the rug. Again, the cop saw two children out at night and stopped to question as to why they were out well past curfew. One child obeyed and held up his hands, while DeAuntae pulled a gun on the cop and the cop reacted, killing him.
Point is, during both situations, the child was at fault. The first girl ran a stop sign and was hit by a cop on a hot call. The second child drew a gun on a cop at night and got shot. It's a shame that people can't take responsibility these days and have to find someone else to blame for something that was someone else's fault.
My only question is where did these children learn to do what they did? If Martin would have done what Zimmerman asked, which was hold up your hands and turn around, and if Farrow would have done what the two cops asked which was the same thing, hands up and turn around, both children would still be alive and Sharpton and Jackson would retreat to their caves and leave the rest of us alone.
You bet your *** if I was ever in that situation, even being a neon white ginger, I'd do exactly what I was told. I When I get pulled over or have to go through a checkpoint, I make sure my hands are out the window at all times and every light inside my truck is on so the cop can see what I'm doing so he or she won't think I'm reaching for my 9MM rather than my insurance card. It's called common sense.
