New Evidence Released in Trayvon Martin Case

By Hoosier Daddy in the Musings of an Ordinary American blog

Originally posted on May 26, 2013, two months before the Zimmerman verdict

Quote:

Data released Thursday by the defense from slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin’s cellphone includes texts with a friend about fighting, smoking pot and being forced to move out of his mother’s house because of trouble at school, as well as photos of a gun and what looks to be a potted marijuana plant.

A hearing next week will decide if the information can be used at the trial for George Zimmerman, who is charged with fatally shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last year during a confrontation at a gated community in Sanford. Prosecutors want the negative evidence omitted, but Zimmerman’s defense attorney said if they try to portray his client as the antagonist and Martin as the victim, he wants to show the jury that Martin has talked about fighting before.

“If they had suggested that Trayvon is nonviolent and that George is the aggressor, I think that makes evidence of the fighting he has been involved with in the past relevant,” said Mark O’Mara.

I, like millions of Americans, initially believed that George Zimmerman targeted, stalked, and killed Trayvon Martin because he was black. After all, that's what the Huffington Post, MSNBC, CNN, etc. were all saying. Soledad O'Brien hosted a program with Martin's parents to reiterate that Martin had been murdered. Dr. Phil did a show with a big banner of Zimmerman in the background and the words "THE MOST HATED MAN IN AMERICA." And, of course, there was the persistent photo of sweet, innocent, smiling  Trayvon Martin and scowling George Zimmerman. They used the phrase "unarmed teen" over and over and over.

The media wrote and talked about how the corrupt small town police department did no investigation, but just immediately declared the shooting self-defense. They hinted that it was because Zimmerman's father was a retired judge. They claimed that Zimmerman had refused police orders to not follow Martin. They said there were no injuries on Zimmerman. They claimed that Martin was screaming for help (even AFTER Trayvon's father listened to the tape and said "that's not my son").

THEN, little-by-little, the actual evidence began to filter out.

Lo' and behold, the police department, which was actually a professional mid-size department, HAD done a thorough investigation. There were tons of crime scene photos, witness statements, forensic evidence, 9-1-1 tapes, etc. The night of the shooting, and again later, detectives had grilled Zimmerman for hours attempting to trip up his story.

As I researched this evidence, two things became clear:

(1) It became absolutely clear that the media had withheld facts, twisted facts, and outright LIED about the incident. For example, the police did NOT "order Zimmerman not to follow Martin." A CIVILIAN dispatcher had actually said merely "we don't NEED you to do that" when Zimmerman said that he would keep Martin in view for responding police. Zimmerman had a broken nose and was covered in blood - his own - from a head wound when the police arrived. A witness described Zimmerman on the ground with Martin on top of him "beating him MMA-style" and stated it was ZIMMERMAN screaming for help. It's even been proven that NBC/MSNBC actually EDITED the 9-1-1 TAPE to make it sound like Zimmerman had made a racist comment when he hadn't!

(2) It became clear that 100% of the available evidence supported George Zimmerman's version of the events.

The "trouble at school" Martin mentioned in a text message as the reason his mother forced him to move in with his father in Florida was his being suspended after stolen women's jewelry and burglary tools were found in his backpack. Later it was determined that the stolen items came from the burglary of a home a few blocks from Martin's school.

And the media's photo of Trayvon turned out to have been taken when he was 12 years old...even though they had access to recent photos.

Propaganda experts say that it's far easier to GIVE a person their opinion than is it to CHANGE that opinion once it's established. The media knows this element of propaganda very well. For proof of this, visit the Huffington Post and read the comments on any article about this case.

The shallow and media-brainwashed are foaming at the mouth to see Zimmerman convicted. They know none of the actual facts of the case, but can recite all of the media talking points such as "the police ordered Zimmerman not to follow Martin." "Zimmerman was 'stalking' Martin", etc. It's unfortunate that so many Americans do not look deeper, but simply fall hook-line-and-sinker for the media sensationalizing and lies.

I think the media was very disappointed when there were no riots after the Zimmerman verdict, but only random attacks on whites - which the media does not like to report on.  Even now, when they report on the case, it's not "the shooting was determined to be self-defense", it's "Zimmerman convinced a jury to find him not guilty" - the inference being that he WAS guilty, but he somehow "convinced" a jury to rule otherwise. Having seen and read 100% of the evidence presented by both sides, I can say that it was as clear a case of self-defense as any I've ever seen.

The media made up for it, though, in the Michael Brown case. They ignored the decorated police officer's version of events to tout the claims of Dorian Johnson, Brown's best friend and accomplice in the robbery and initial assault on the officer.  It was Johnson who claimed Brown had his hands up when shot, after first claiming that he was shot in the back while running away.

Johnson has a history of lying to the police, even having been arrested for it a while back.  Yet, the media stated in every article "some said that Brown had his hands up in surrender when shot."  Even when several other African American witnesses came forward to say that Brown did not have his hands up and was rushing at the officer when shot, the media persisted.  Even when forensic evidence proved that Brown could not have had his hands up, the media persisted with the "hands up" story.

And how about the case of Eric Garner, the black man who died after an encounter with the NYPD?  The media to this day refers to "the police chokehold death of Eric Garner."

Yet, the media knows that the reason the officer in the case was not indicted is because it was proven that the martial arts headlock used on Garner was NOT a "chokehold", did NOT choke Garner, nor did it restrict his airway.  Garner was morbidly obese, had high blood pressure and asthma.  He overstressed his body resisting arrest and fighting with police and gave HIMSELF a fatal heart attack.

As for Garner's saying "I can't breathe", ask any nurse, paramedic, or EMT and they will tell you two things:  (1) if you can speak, you can breathe, and (2) most people having heart attacks feel like they can't breathe.  This is something else that the media knows....but refuses to ever state in an article about the case.  The media is directly responsible for the ambush murders of the two NYPD officers by a man who thought he was avenging Eric Garner.

I'm not sure WHY the media intentionally slants these kinds of stories to stir up race hate and hatred of the police. But I can speculate: demonstrations and riots make for great stories and video.  It draws more readers and viewers to the media outlets. More viewers equals more advertisers and more cash.

The "article" in the left wing propaganda site, the Huffington Post, on the DoJ's decision not to prosecute Zimmerman for a federal civil rights violation, contains this blatant lie:

Quote:
by the Huffington Post:
The Justice Department first announced in July 2013 it would look into the killing of the 17-year-old, who was shot by Zimmerman -- a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Florida -- while walking home carrying a bag of Skittles and an iced tea.


No, Martin was NOT "shot while while walking home carrying a bag of Skittles and an iced tea."  He was shot while on top of a man he was brutally beating. The media is shameless in their lies.

Then professional racist Eric Holder made this idiotic statement:

Quote:
“The death of Trayvon Martin was a devastating tragedy. It shook an entire community, drew the attention of millions across the nation, and sparked a painful but necessary dialogue throughout the country,” Holder said.



The very fact that the DoJ spent all this time and wasted all this money investigating what was one of the clearest cases of self-defense I've ever seen is a "devastating tragedy" for the American taxpayers, not the self-defense shooting of a burglar, drug dealer, and violent thug..

Yes, I know that millions of Americans are still brainwashed by media lies about the case. But the FACTS as brought out at the trial are:

1. Trayvon Martin was a drug dealer and burglar who was walking between houses and looking into windows when he was spotted by Zimmerman.

2. Zimmerman called police to report the suspicious person. The dispatcher kept Zimmerman on the phone while police responded.

3. Zimmerman attempted to keep Martin in view in order to point him out to responding police.

4. When Zimmerman lost sight of Martin and exited his vehicle to get his bearings, the civilian dispatcher asked if he was trying to follow the suspect. When Zimmerman said he was, the dispatcher said "we don't NEED you to do that" (the source of the media LIE that says "police ordered Zimmerman not to follow Martin")

5. Zimmerman said "OK" to the dispatcher and turned to head back to his vehicle when Martin came out from behind some shrubbery and confronted him.

6. Martin "sissy punched" Zimmerman in the face breaking his nose and knocking him to the ground.

7. Martin got down and straddled Zimmerman and proceeded to beat him "MMA-Style", according to an eye witness, while pounding his head on the sidewalk. The witness said that ZImmerman was screaming for help.

8. Zimmerman was able to reach his concealed licensed handgun and fire a single shot which killed his attacker.

That's it, folks. Those are the PROVEN facts as determined by the witnesses and forensic evidence. If Martin had been white, no one would have ever heard about the case. But the left wing media INTENTIONALLY withheld facts, twisted the truth, and outright LIED about the case in order to create a racial incident. NBC/MSNBC was even caught editing the 9-1-1 tape to make it sound like Zimmerman had made a racist comment...which he had not.

Never EVER believe anything you see in the media...especially if it pertains to a "racial" incident.

And the media propagandists are STILL using
this photo of a cute little Trayvon Martin at age 12......

DESPITE having access to recent photos like these two.  Gee...do you suppose they have a reason for doing that?  Could it be they
are intentionally
trying to create the impression that Martin was just an innocent little child instead of a thug-wannabe?


The POINT is that the media intentionally set out to spoon-feed people an entirely false opinion of what was actually a simple self-defense case.  They succeeded very well.

George Zimmerman is no saint....but I see a lot of lies about him on various news sites.  Sadly, millions of people constantly fall for media lies. Here are a few things the media-brainwashed do not know:

Zimmerman is Hispanic and part black.

Zimmerman is short and pudgy, Trayvon was tall and muscular.

He is a lifelong Democrat and worked to help elect Barack Obama.

Zimmerman tutored black children in his community.

He was once arrested for "interfering with a police officer" when he saw a black man being arrested and got involved because he felt that the police were being unnecessarily rough.  The media has claimed that this was "assaulting a police officer."  That's just another lie. He "interfered" with the arrest, he did not "assault" anyone.

Zimmerman has been arrested three times for "domestic violence."  NONE of the arrests alleged that he actually struck anyone (breaking something while in an argument with a partner is "domestic violence") and, in one case, the woman complainant was prosecuted for making a false police report.

Don't forget the ignoramuses who think this case had anything whatsoever to do with Stand-Your-Ground laws.  It didn't. 

The extreme left USES incidents like this to push their anti-gun, anti-self-defense agenda. For some unknown reason, they used the Trayvon shooting   to lobby against SYG laws....even though such laws had absolutely nothing to do with the case.

Stand-Your-Ground laws say that when a person is being menaced by someone threatening to physically harm them, they can "stand their ground" and resist the threat with force instead of having to run away.

George Zimmerman was on the ground with Trayvon Martin on top of him.  He did not have the option of running away.

Then, of course, there are fools even more ignorant who say "why didn't Trayvon have the option of standing his ground?"  They have to be REAL stupid if they think that merely following someone is "threatening to do physical harm" to the person. Don't get in line behind one of these people at the supermarket because they may think you "following them" is justification to punch you in the face.

All of the evidence indicates that Trayvon approached Zimmerman after Zimmerman had turned back and was heading back to his truck.  Trayvon was the sole aggressor.

Stand-Your-Ground laws never came into this case.  It's worth noting though, that statistics show that black victims use the Stand-Your-Ground defense more than do white victims.  SYG laws protect blacks more than whites!

I think most Americans, through no fault of their own, are ignorant of the purpose of a Grand Jury.

Grand Juries do not determine guilt or innocence. ALL they do is establish whether there is probable cause to believe that a crime was committed...and then issue an indictment for the person believed to have committed the crime. Probable Cause is the weakest of the standards of proof. If after reviewing all the evidence there is even the slightest possibility that a crime was committed, a Grand Jury will so rule.

Once indicted, the suspect then goes to an actual trial where a far more stringent standard is applied: proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

The fact is that if you can't get an indictment from a Grand Jury, you would never get a conviction at a trial.

Not only is the standard of proof extremely low for a Grand Jury, but ONLY the prosecution is allowed to present a case to the Grand Jury. The defense is not even allowed in the room.

It's so easy to get an indictment from a Grand Jury that former New York Chief Judge Sol Wachtler said that if they so desired, a prosecutor could persuade a grand jury to 'indict a ham sandwich'.

The Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case spent three months pouring over every bit of the evidence, including witness testimony and forensics.  They decided that the officer, Darren Wilson, had committed no crime. 

You can be 100% certain that if there was the slightest possibility that Michael Brown had his hands up when shot, they would not have ruled that way.  The "hands up" myth was created by Brown's best friend and accomplice in the robbery, Dorian Johnson.  Johnson first tried to claim that Brown was shot in the back while running away.  When that lie was quickly exposed, he came up with his "hands up" lie.

But several African-American witnesses testified that Brown did NOT have his hands up and was charging the officer "like a linebacker" when shot.  Forensic evidence also proves that Brown could not have had his hands raised when shot.

DESPITE the foregoing, black racists and muddy-headed liberals persist in using "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" on signs, shirts, songs, and chanting it at demonstrations. They're only proving their ignorance.

Then there's the Grand Jury that refused to indict the officer in the Eric Garner case. Again, the EVIDENCE proved to the Grand Jury that the martial arts neck restraint used on Garner was NOT a chokehold and did NOT choke Garner.

It was proven that Garner gave himself a heart attack by fighting with police.

Yet, once again, the black racists and white liberals use Garner as a rallying point. Ignorant sports figures wear "I Can't Breathe" shirts to practice.

Why are there so many ignorant, uninformed Americans??  Is it just that they are victims of the lying liberal media, hateful black racists who WANT to believe the worst....or are they just a bunch of adult spoiled brats who hate cops because cops do what their crappy parents never did: force them to behave?

I see that attorney general Eric Holder has now grudgingly admitted that it's been proven that Michael Brown did not have his hands up when shot. Do you suppose that this will finally put an end to the morons with their "hands up, don't shoot" stupidity?  Do you suppose that the sports figures, the Black Congressional Caucus, and all the other chumps who posed with their hands up will now feel stupid?

Don't bet the farm on it

Well. After all the riots, property damage, burning businesses, assaults and murders of innocent people over justified shootings, it looks like the racist blacks FINALLY may have an actual case of an "unarmed black man" being unjustifiably shot by police in South Carolina. All the facts are not out, but the video does not look good for the officer.

Prior to this, every single shooting that they've been demonstrating and rioting about have been 100% justified with zero legitimate reason for protests except that the criminals happened to be black.

Even in this case, there's no evidence that the race of the shooting victim had anything to do with it. However, that won't stop the professional race-baiters like Al Sharpton from stirring the pot.

Imagine that there was a white demagogue like Sharpton.  Someone who gave press conferences and stirred the pot every time a white person was assaulted or killed by a black person.

How much legitimacy do you think the media would give such a person?  Would they run to him for a sound bite every time a white was killed by a black?  Would MSNBC give him his own program? Would the President of the United States make him an advisor?

Anyone who doesn't believe that the media and 0bama have a specific agenda they push probably can't walk and chew gum at the same time.

Don't leave out 12-year old Tamir Rice.  The internet and Youtube are full of stories about how a Cleveland cop "murdered" Tamir Rice for "playing with a BB gun" because he was black.

Yep, more media and black racist lies designed to spoon-feed the gullible their opinions..

The police officer was dispatched to a "man with a gun" call.  Rice had been pointing the gun at strangers in the park to scare them with it and they called the police. Upon the officers' arrival, they encountered Rice, who was as tall as many adults, with what was later proven to be an airsoft gun in his waistband.  Airsoft guns are designed to look and feel exactly like a real firearm.  I once handed an airsoft gun to a police armorer and HE thought it was a real gun until I told him it was an airsoft. The left wing propaganda machine media likes to claim it was a "toy" gun. Airsoft guns are not "toys" and you must furnish proof of age to buy one.

Rice had the gun in his waistband when the officers arrived. The officer jumped out of the car and yelled "SHOW ME YOUR HANDS!", but Rice decided to PULL the gun from his waistband instead, and was shot. It's sad....and I'm sure that the officer is devastated.  But it was 100% reasonable and justified. There are few guarantees in life, but one of them is if you decide to pull or point a gun at a police officer, whether you are white, black, brown or purple, you will be shot.  Although the officer had no way of knowing that Rice was 12 years old, a 12-year old is just as capable of pulling a trigger as an adult.

If anyone is to blame, it's Rice's parents for not instructing him to never point an airsoft gun at a stranger and especially at a police officer.  Even before the Rice shooting, I instructed my son, who would play in the park with his friends with airsoft guns, to immediately DROP the gun if he saw a police car or an officer and keep his hands in view.  The fact is that citizens seeing teens with airsoft guns are likely to call police and the police have no way of knowing that the guns are not real.

Yes, the media fans the flames of the blacks who have been indoctrinated from Kindergarten on to believe that they are perpetual victims.

Do you think that YOU could tell the difference between the "toy" gun that Rice had from a real gun? 

airsoftvsReal.jpg 
Which gun is real and which is the fake?

If you were a police officer, would you hesitate if EITHER of these was pointed at you? If so, you should be in a different line of work.

Now there's a black "movement" that is calling itself "BlackLivesMatter" and uses the Twitter hashtag "#BlackLivesMatter."

It should be called "BlackLiesMatter" because they are still running around chanting "hands up" and "I can't breathe" in their claims of police misconduct, both of which have proven to to be lies. The "movement" is based totally on lies and a lot of just plain hate.

Media sensationalizing and intentional misinformation seems to have convinced a majority of black Americans that the police are their enemies.  That's a shame because police officers are probably the least racist group in America.  They don't see race....they see only criminals and victims. Race is irrelevant to them.
