I forgot to add...in my head...comparing the two takes away from Emmett Till's case. I recall watching a documentary about it...that was racially motivated. Such a sad sad story.

No punishment for Forney officer who snapped Zimmerman photo
Posted:  Aug 05, 2013 5:48 PM CDT Updated:  Aug 05, 2013 5:48 PM CDT

The City of Forney said it will not discipline an officer who took an iPhone photo of George Zimmerman's driver's license during a traffic stop one week ago.
 
The city manager said the officer took the photo and sent it to his lieutenant. The officer told city officials he wanted his superiors to be aware of who he stopped in case there were questions from the media.

George Zimmerman's GPS reports show he moved, bought bulletproof vest
Last Updated: Thursday, August 08, 2013, 4:28 PM

SANFORD --
A newly-released report shows what George Zimmerman did during the time he was under home confinement.

The 57-page report was created from Zimmerman's GPS anklet, and released by the Seminole County Sheriff's Office

The report shows Zimmerman changed addresses three times and phone numbers three times, because he was concerned for his safety.

He also bought a bulletproof vest, and an infrared alarm for his home.

The report also shows the number of times he left Seminole County to meet with his attorneys.

The report also highlights two potential violations of his confinement:

Critics blast Jackson, Sharpton over silence on Florida school bus beating
August 8, 2013

Self-appointed civil rights leaders and celebrities remained mum on the vicious beating of a white sixth-grader at the hands of three older African-Americans in Florida, despite a growing chorus of critics who called their silence hypocrisy given their recent, racially-charged condemnation of the Sunshine State.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, who both blasted Florida in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting and the acquittal of George Zimmerman in Martin's death, with Jackson calling it an "apartheid state" and "our Selma," have not spoken publicly of the brutal beating aboard a school bus caught on cellphone and surveillance video. Neither Jackson nor Sharpton responded to requests for comment from FoxNews.com.

“Three 15-yr-old black teens beat up a 13-yr-old white kid because he told school officials they tried to sell him drugs,” former congressman Allen West, an ex-Army Colonel who is African-American, wrote on his Facebook page. “Do you hear anything from Sharpton, Jackson, NAACP, Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, liberal media, or Hollywood? Cat got your tongues or is it that pathetic hypocrisy revealing itself once again? Y'all just make me sick.”
 
The attack took place July 9 in the St. Petersburg-area community of Gulfport. But the horrific cellphone and surveillance video came out only recently. Police say the three youths, all African-American, attacked the boy after he told officials at their dropout prevention school that one of them had tried to sell him marijuana. The unidentified boy was left with a broken arm and two black eyes.

Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight, and Lloyd Khemradj, all 15 years old, were arrested a short time later. All three were charged with aggravated battery and have since been released. Reddin is also charged with unarmed robbery.

Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent told Fox News the attack does not appear to be racially motivated and was due to the younger boy reporting that one of the assailants had tried to sell him marijuana.

West, who represented southeastern Florida in the House, denounced Jackson and Sharpton as “race-baiters” and “faux leaders” during the Zimmerman trial for making the death of  Martin into a racial issue.

“Do you really want to talk about the issues that are confronting the black community or do you want to talk about the politically manufactured crises that you have these faux leaders and these race-baiters that are out there, you know, promoting it,” West said in a July interview on Fox News Radio.

Rev. Dr. Manuel Sykes, president of the St. Petersburg chapter of the NAACP, told FoxNews.com his group is aware of the bus beating and is monitoring it closely.

“We would want to see if any and all information out there has determined if there are any disparities,” he said.

All three of the assailants were expelled from school and are due back in court for a hearing early next week.

I wonder how much Tracey and Sybrina got paid to be on the cover of Ebony magazine.

They are worse than the Anthonys. IMO.

"Uh uh- I know she didn't."

This has all gotten to another level.  I so feel the pain of the Martins and losing their son.  They asked for a  trial and they received that.  They did not get the verdict they wanted ( I guess).

And now the race baiters have jumped on the band wagon.

How about every parent out there - no matter what race - take heed and raise up their  children the very best way they know how.

Turn this into a positive and not a divisive situation.

Please, please people we need to not make this worse than it is.

Prayers for the Martin family to follow a productive course.

Trayvon Martin's father named honorary captain of FAMU football team
Tracy Martin recently delivered an inspirational speech to the Florida A&M football team

August 12, 2013

TALLAHASSEE — Trayvon Martin’s father has been named honorary captain of the FAMU football team after delivering an inspirational speech to the team Sunday.

Florida A&M coach Earl Holmes said Tracy Martin, whose son’s shooting death in Sanford drew national attention, called him recently and the coach recently invited the grieving father to address his players.

“[We] talked and I told him I’d love him to talk to the team. He came out and he was very,  very encouraging,” Holmes said of Tracy Martin. “ . . . [He] got a standing ovation from our guys. He talked about just persevering and told the guys to keep on pushing through the hard times. The message he shared with the kids was very positive and they were very responsive.” 
Since George Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in connection with Trayvon Martin’s death in Sanford, his parents have been seeking support for the Trayvon Martin Foundation.


Holmes said Tracy Martin will be an honorary captain for the Rattlers this season. Martin is scheduled to be on the field and do the pregame coin toss when FAMU plays it season opener against Mississippi Valley State Sept. 1 during the MEAC-SWAC Challenge at the Citrus Bowl. Kickoff is at 11:45 a.m. and the game will air on ESPN.

Holmes said his players were moved by Martin’s speech.

“He had some inspiring words and the guys played off of that,” Holmes said. “And we’re going to keep pushing for him and his foundation. He’ll be an honorary captain for us this year and he’s welcome any time.

“I think what he’s doing with the foundation is big and it speaks volumes and I want the football team and FAMU Nation to be part of that”

The purpose of the foundation, according to its website trayvonmartinfoundation.org, is to create awareness about how violent crime impacts the families of the victims and to provide support for those families.

8/12/13    Mural shows man shooting likeness of Trayvon Martin
 


"The mural shows a man who looks similar to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who shot and killed Martin in February 2012 and was later acquitted in the teen's death, shooting a person wearing a hoodie.  There's a mirror in the mural where Martin's face would be so visitors can see themselves as the teen.

The mural also contains blank spaces where the public can share their thoughts, and  it also shows a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. with blood flowing down his head."

1. Can't put a copy of The Ten Commandments in the State House, might offend somebody.

2. If George Zimmerman looked like that Martin would still be running.

Agree.

This mural is offensive to me in so many ways.

Dream Defenders end Capitol sit-in over Zimmerman verdict
August 15, 2013

TALLAHASSEE — After sitting in at the Florida Capitol for 31 days — since just after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin — the group called the Dream Defenders ended its protest Thursday with the help of civil-rights icon Julian Bond.

Leaders said they'll carry their campaign against the "stand your ground" self-defense law and what they consider other forms of racial bias to the polls, trying to defeat the elected officials who opposed their demands.

That includes Gov. Rick Scott, who is up for re-election next year. The Dream Defenders announced a voter-registration drive, with a goal of 61,550 new voters — Scott's margin of victory in 2010.

"Our work and our power have grown too big for these walls," said Phillip Agnew, leader of the Dream Defenders.

The group marched to the Capitol on July 16 and demanded a special session on "stand your ground," which they didn't get.
But they got a national hearing, and Bond, founder of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and a longtime Georgia lawmaker, declared their nonviolent action a success in the tradition of the 1960s civil-rights movement.
 

The protest ignited when Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of the unarmed teen Martin. Although Zimmerman's attorneys did not invoke the "stand your ground" law, which grants immunity to people who use deadly force if they have reason to believe their lives are in jeopardy, the circumstances of Martin's death touched a nerve among many black, Hispanic and mixed-race people.
