    Just exactly why did NBC edit the 911 call tape and run it on the air?
    They have a history of bogus stories.The lawsuit they lost to Richard Jewel comes to mind.They and other leftwing news nerds paid through the nose when the lost in court.Some of the dimwits(Atlanta Journal-Constitution) said they stood by their story even after someone else(Eric Rudolf) was arrested,confessed,and was convicted and imprisoned.
    How can they be trusted to tell the truth about anything?

    If Rodney King had been shot, after being tased and getting up to begin choke a Sheriff’s deputy when they tried to arrest him, the tape never would have gone “viral” after being edited to NOT show him attacking the officer, except a couple times, and riots wouldn’t have led to over 70 deaths.


    There are no tapes of the Martin/Zimmerman encounter, and the Florida laws on “self defense” may indeed have been the jury’s decision mandate, but when a bigger in actuality, guy, WITH a gun, follows and contacts a teenager he deems “suspicious”, after being told to NOT DO THAT, and the adult is NOT in uniform, and NOT a legitimate police officer, the question of who attacked who is NOT represented by this ’toon. The defense claiming a sidewalk is a weapon, then bringing a chunk of concrete he could carry into the courtroom, implying a sidewalk is moveable and a weapon, is theatrical, but definitely not accurate to the real world.


    Two different cases, let’s hope nobody gets carried away with all the rhetoric, and repeats the idiocy of riots and violence.

    “The direction of this event was established by Barack Obama, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” and continued by biased media.”

    I’d point my finger at the local police who were willing to sweep a killing under the rug.

    Moral of the story seems to be, if someone is following you while you wander around the neighborhood, talking with a friend on the phone, shoot first.

    No, the direction of this event was established when Zimmerman saw a black kid with a hoodie, decided incorrectly that he must be a criminal, and stalked him while packing a loaded gun.

    Another distortion. The non-emergency dispatcher that Zimmerman talked to advised Zimmerman not to follow, but did not issue a direct order because he lacked authority to do so. Zimmerman did NOT disobey police directives.

    The moral and legal needs of the United states have not been satisfied. Most of us demand a US Civil Rights intervention! And I think we will get one.

    “Justice has been satisfied.”

    Is that how you felt after the O.J. Simpson verdict? I know I did not feel satisfied after that one.

    I only see race as a tangent in the case. Zimmerman’s defense did a good job of deflecting the charges that he ‘profiled’ Martin. Would Zimmerman have acted the same way if it was a white kid wandering around in the dark? Maybe he would. Would I be as bothered that an unarmed white kid was shot? Absolutely.

    Any parent should be uneasy about this verdict.

    He didn’t get nearly what he deserves….Zimmerman had no business ‘following’ anybody. If he was concerned, he should have called the police and backed the hell off. That he didn’t even get manslaughter was astounding….Trayvon’s murder was a 21st century lynching.

    Nice one, Lisa! I like how Trevon is using the media to beat him up.
