Trayvon Martin's family attorney blasts new Zimmerman website


7:53 a.m. EST, April 10, 2012|By Kevin P. Connolly, Orlando Sentinel



An attorney for Trayvon Martin's family blasted George Zimmerman's new website in an appearance with Trayvon's mother on Good Morning America.

 Shooter Zimmerman said in the website that "I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage" on Feb. 26, referring to the fatal shooting of Trayvon   ::snipping2:: 

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-04-10/news/os-george-zimmerman-website-trayvon-20120410_1_incident-and-subsequent-media-website-shooter-zimmerman

I'm of the opinion that no matter what George Zimmerman does, he's screwed.  If there are no charges laid, his life is still screwed.  I've seen plenty of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Black Panther's, shutting down a police station, threats of violence if charges are not brought.  Is that justice?  Is it a form of lynching?  Where is the legal process?  I don't know if George Zimmerman is guilty or not of anything at this point, because I don't have enough information. I'm very concerned by some of what has been incorrectly reported and then found to be untrue.  People tend to believe the negative and what they've been told first, imo.  This includes the editing of the audio.  I'm not taking either side here, because it pains me greatly to know a young man died.  But what were the circumstances?  We need to know that.  There has been some finely crafted PR, including using young, innocent child pictures of Trayvon, while George Zimmerman's along side it and he looks scruffy.  It has impact and effect. 
So one of Trayvon's attorney blasts George Zimmerman's website.  George Zimmerman has the right to free speech, he has the right to get help for his legal expenses imo.  We haven't heard a lot from George Zimmerman, but look what happens when he does make a statement.  I am very concerned that since Al Sharpton and etal got involved, it brings out the skinheads on the other end.  None of this is good for any one.  People are using this for their own personal agendas. 
What about this?  Wasn't this a "hate" crime?  Where is/was the outrage?

There is hatred and there is ugliness and racism but we don't have to feed it imo.

I do need to correct myself...I really don't know that the protestors are of all one particular race.  So scratch that.  Still, if I lived in Sanford I would be LIVID.

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-04-10/news/os-george-zimmerman-website-trayvon-20120410_1_incident-and-subsequent-media-website-shooter-zimmerman

There’s been so much media malfeasance in the Trayvon Martin shooting case that it’s hard to keep track of it all.
 
Here’s a roundup of some of the top media misses.
 
EditGate 

NBC selectively edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him appear racist.  NBC heard about the story after everyone, they claim:
 

Sources at the network told Reuters on Thursday that NBC News executives did not know the emergency call was misleadingly edited until news reports surfaced days later on blogs including newsbusters.org and Breitbart.com.
 
So, there’s that. And you’re welcome, NBC. They also apparently fired someone but said that the editing was "a mistake"--yet we don’t know who they fired and we don’t know how it was a mistake.
 
CNN’s Racist Audio Fiasco
 
The CNN show Anderson Cooper 360 ran a report on March 21st that showed, with a dramatic technological flourish. that George Zimmerman had muttered a racial epithet under his breath as he pursued Trayvon Martin. That was the main piece of actual evidence of racism in the story.
 
Except, a week later CNN had another expert on who said that Zimmerman didn’t say ‘coon,’ but said ‘cold’ instead. Except, then an expert said the word was ‘punks’ not ‘cold.  And now what does CNN say?
 
Sometimes we hear what we want to hear.
 
Yeah. Thanks, CNN.
 
The Pictures 

This is a shameless, ongoing scandal that is so omnipresent that it doesn’t even feel like scandal — every network and print out there has used photos of Trayvon Marin that don’t accurately reflect how he looked at the time of the incident. Instead, we get photos supplied by the family’s attorney that gave many people the wrong impression that a young boy was shot. Why not show the 17 year Trayvon Martin?   ::snipping2::

(CBS News) SANFORD, Fla. - Shots were fired at a Sanford police car parked near the scene of the Trayvon Martin shooting. According to authorities, the cruiser was found Tuesday morning with bullet holes in it and at least window blown out.

Police said no one was inside the cruiser, which was parked across the street from the Retreat at Twin Lakes apartment complex, near the front of Bentley Elementary School.

CBS affiliate WKMG reports witnesses said they heard six shots. At least two bullets struck the patrol car.   ::snipping2::

New reports also show

is a problem.  We've already seen what 'news reports' show in this case and it isn't always the truth.  When the State's Atty says the man was drunk, I'll believe it.

Oh my goodness...why don't they stop this crap...and that isn't by backing down!  I agree that an investigation should be ongoing...like ANY other case.  If my child was taken in this manner I would demand an investigation...but, in no way would I be okay with the violence.  I would get on national television and demand that everyone stop the violence and if protest were needed it would be quietly done.  I would use my resources not THIS!

Does Target (Sanford) have a alcohol license? 
RZ,Jr. said GZ went to Target to buy Milk, did he buy anything else? 

Does the local 7-11 sell Beer, etc?

Florida Alcohol laws, nothing is crystal clear.

http://www.ehow.com/info_7746930_florida-alcohol-sales-laws.html

Hours of Sale

Florida allows local municipalities to determine the hours of sale for alcoholic beverages in restaurants. If a municipality does not pass an ordinance relating to the sale of alcoholic beverages, the latest hour they may be sold is 2 a.m. Counties and cities with later hours of sale include Tampa (3 a.m.) and Broward County (4 a.m.). Alcohol is sold 24 hours day in the Miami entertainment district. Store hours also vary by municipality.

Too bad LE didn't see fit to test George Zimmerman at the time of the incident for drugs or alcohol...

We wouldn't be left guessing or wondering if he was under the influence.

I bet they tested Trayvon's remains for drugs and alcohol.

This is loathsome.  The media's efforts of stirring the racist pot is paying off and now they have more stories to cover.

What's even more troubling is that the public has not learned to overcome this and see it for what it is.

I bet the shooter is some idiot who doesn't even care about race; they're just piggybacking on the media hype.

Why Wasn't George Zimmerman Given Drug, Alcohol Tests but Travyon Was?

Quote
"Except for DUIs, police cannot test suspects for drugs or alcohol, unless the accused demands or consents to it, or they get a warrant. Trayvon Martin was tested for drugs and alcohol because it is the normal procedure of autopsies to determine the exact cause of death or contributing factors of death," the Washington Times said. "The so-called law enforcement and legal experts who claim Zimmerman should have been tested demonstrate they have no expertise."

And here it is folks...whether he'd shown positive or negative, any defense atty would have it thrown out.  Had the positions been reversed, Martin's atty would do the same and be screaming racial profiling if LE had even questioned the need for a tox test.

This is what we don't need, whether it's done in the name of Trayvon or George Zimmerman.   

http://www.gainesville.com/article/20120409/ARTICLES/120409617/1182?Title=Man-tells-police-group-yelled-8216-Trayvon-then-beat-him
Man tells police group yelled ‘Trayvon,' then beat him
By Chad Smith
April 9, 2012

Police are investigating the “racially motivated” beating of a 27-year-old man who was walking home from midtown bars early Saturday when he said he was jumped by five to eight men who shouted “Trayvon” before the attack.

The exclamation was an apparent reference to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old from Miami who was shot and killed in February walking back to his father’s girlfriend’s house in Sanford.

His shooter, George Zimmerman, has not been charged.

The case of Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was killed by Zimmerman, a Hispanic crime-watch volunteer, has stirred conversations across the country about race, crime and profiling.

Investigators believe that case was the catalyst for the beating Saturday in Gainesville.

“We do believe that the crime was racially motivated,” Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said.

The assailants were black, while the victim is white, Valuri said.

SLIDESHOW: Outrage over Trayvon Martin case
 


Trayvon Martin, 17, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by George Zimmerman, 28, who claims self-defense.

Zimmerman made news most recently with a website he launched designed to raise funds for his defense. Zimmerman has admitted to shooting and killing Trayvon Martin, 17, on the night of Feb. 26 in Sanford, FL.

 
The website titled "The Real George Zimmerman" is asking for donations to help with legal defense fund, as the website says, for the "life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage."   ::snipping2::
