Let’s see what we have got here with Trayvon Martin’s case
Zimmerman made a call about Trayvon, saying he’s looking suspicious, Trayvon had his hoodie, bought skittles and iced tea.
Zimmerman called him a “fucking coon.” He also said “They’re always getting away.”
The dispatcher told him not to follow him and Zimmerman chose to ignore that and follow him.
Trayvon was on the phone and called 911 and had called his friend, “Someone is following me.” He was told to run. Zimmerman confronted him with a gun, “What are you doing here?” Zimmerman asks and Trayvon says, “Why are you following me?”
There was a scuffle and someone was shouting for help then there was a gunshot and Trayvon was dead.
Zimmerman proclaims that it was self-defense, the police did not check if Zimmerman was drinking or on drugs but checked if Trayvon had any drugs or alcohol.
Now, let’s look at what the folks who defended Zimmerman had said
“Trayvon was a gangster, he had pictures where he was flipping off, where he had gold teeth, he was smoking pot and was suspended, and he had tattoos.”
“Zimmerman was the one calling for help.”
“Zimmerman was heading back to his car, Trayvon jumped him from behind. Zimmerman had bloody nose and a blood on his head, and grass on his back.”
Whatever Trayvon had done, whether the photos were true or not, he’s a 17 year old kid who weighs around 150 pounds. He may not have been a perfect little angel (No one is a perfect little angel) but he wasn’t doing anything prior to his murder other than buying iced tea and skittles. He was wearing a hoodie and was just walking to his father’s girlfriend’s house. Whether or not he had tattoos is irrelevant because tattoos mean nothing. My brothers and my dad have tattoos but we’re all decent people. As for pot, there are a lot of good kids who did that. As for flipping off in a photo, my brother and my sister did that a long time ago. I may not personally understand it or even care, but that too is irrelevant.
The person who was crying to help was clearly not Zimmerman as he was the one with the gun, he was the one who chose to attack him, he was the one who thought he was up to no good, and he was the one who scared Trayvon.
Trayvon may have fought him, but he was fighting for his life, Zimmerman was the one who chose to kill him.
Why would Zimmerman be following him? Because Trayvon was black with a hoodie and was thought to be suspicious, on drugs, and thought that he was up to no good.
Zimmerman chose to confront him with a gun because he wanted to terrify Trayvon.
Zimmerman was called a neighborhood watch volunteer, but he broke the rules as a watchman. He was supposed to observe and report, period. No guns, no following, and not to confront a suspicious person.
He proclaimed that he was scared, but if he was, why didn’t he just leave him alone? If you’re scared of someone you feel suspicious about, why follow them with a gun? I don’t think Zimmerman was scared, I think Zimmerman was trying to attack him because he was black.
He made over 40 calls about suspicious activities. He also has a criminal record where he beat up an officer and few other violations. Zimmerman was certainly not a civilized man and he was certainly not a law abiding citizen.
Zimmerman is clearly the bad guy, not Trayvon. Trayvon is just a kid. He may not have been the perfect kid, but he is innocent nonetheless.
If I’m missing anything else, or I’m wrong about something, let me know.
