On the way back from the store, Trayvon Martin was noticed by George Zimmerman, a middle aged Hispanic male with Cuban and Peruvian ancestors on his mother's side.
Zimmerman didn't know Martin, became suspicious, and incorrectly believed that Martin might be up to no good. Given the historical record of the behavior of teenage blacks, that's a reasonable assumption.
Zimmerman called the police. During the conversation with the police, Zimmerman told the police that Martin had started running. Zimmerman began following Martin. The dispatcher asked Zimmerman whether he was following Martin. Zimmerman said yes. Then the dispatcher said "We don't need you to do that." Zimmerman stopped following Martin.
That's the true sequence of events prior to the confrontation. The blacks and the media consistently and intentionally misconstrue those details. They want to get falsehood into the public opinion: that Zimmerman deliberately disobeyed a police order. He did no such thing.
I think that Trayvon Martin was incensed by the fact that he'd felt obliged to run away from Zimmerman. After Zimmerman ended his foot chase and had turned around to return to his SUV, the angry Martin came back and attacked him.
Another falsehood purveyed by the media is that Trayvon Martin was a slight youth. Instead, Martin was a muscular 180 pounds and topped Zimmerman's height by about five inches. The media have been using an old picture of Trayvon Martin from his family album, which shows the black youth as he was several years ago, before he added inches to his height and muscle to his frame.
Zimmerman was a flabby Hispanic. He weighed more than Martin did, but he wasn't as strong. As Zimmerman was on his way back to his SUV, Martin charged him, hit him in the face, knocked him down, and continued to abuse him once he was flat on his back.
That's when Zimmerman fired his pistol.
Martin was hit with the bullet, and he fell down and died.
The police arrived and found no reason to arrest George Zimmerman.
A biased and distorted summary of events was aired by the national media vendors, apparently by all of them at once, in which some details were omitted, and in which other details were falsified. George Zimmerman was incorrectly described as "a white man," and Trayvon Martin's provocative behavior is nowhere to be found in the media narratives.
It looks as if the media were trying to incite blacks against whites, using a distorted summary of this interracial violence for that purpose. This theory explains why these same media largely have ignored a much greater number of black-on-white murders and attempted murders.
Failing to find one actual case in which a white man murdered a black youth, the media hoaxed one up out of the (self-defense) killing of Trayvon Martin by (Hispanic) George Zimmerman.
You can see why it is important to doubt everything the media say in regard to interracial conflicts. They lie with the intention of inflaming non-whites against whites. They've been doing this since the end of the Second World War, and we white people have caught on to the fact only in recent years.
Listen to the actual telephone conversation between George Zimmerman and the police dispatcher.
Once you've heard it, you'll know that the mainstream media are lying about the shooting of Trayvon Martin, and it isn't difficult to figure out why.
