It isn't.

To be sure: there are many who live in Florida who also celebrate the birth of the KKK.

Don't splatter the rest of Florida with your bigotry.

George Zimmerman: WKMG adds forensic consultant

Two Friday reports by WKMG-Channel 6’s Tony Pipitone will introduce a forensic consultant who will be a regular during the CBS affiliate’s coverage of the George Zimmerman trial.


Michael Knox has written “Intermediate Range: The Forensic Evidence in the Killing of Trayvon Martin,” a self-published book. Pipitone’s reports, at 6 and 11 p.m., lean heavily on Knox’s work.

The 6 p.m. report offers a timeline of the movements by Martin and Zimmerman on Feb. 26, the night Zimmerman fatally shot the teen in Sanford. The 11 p.m. report focuses on forensics to explain the wound evidence. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in Martin’s death, and the trial will begin in June.

“The 6 o’clock piece casts doubt on Zimmerman’s account, but the 11 o’clock supports Zimmerman’s account of the crucial moment when he fired the shot,” Pipitone said.

Of the 11 p.m. report, Pipitone added,“We’re not saying it’s a scientific re-creation. It’s to visualize what stippling and cloth and gunshots produce when they come together.”

Pipitone praised Knox’s credentials and evenhanded approach to evidence in the headline-making case.

“He’s absolutely credible,” WKMG news director Steve Hyvonen said of Knox.“Tony did his own investigative work. We took what was in the book from this experienced officer and expanded on it.”

The 6 p.m. report runs five minutes, an eternity in television. The 11 p.m. report was being edited Friday afternoon. Pipitone will expand on his findings on “Flashpoint,” moderated by Lauren Rowe, at 8 a.m. Sunday.

Knox was a police officer and detective in Jacksonville, investigated hundreds of homicides and earned a master of science degree in forensic science from the University of Florida.

Knox saw an opportunity in writing about the Zimmerman case.“With such a polarized debate, a lot of details got lost in the shuffle,” he said.”What I wanted to do was provide a more neutral presentation of the evidence.”

What does Pipitone want viewers to take away from the reports?

“They should wait for facts and evidence to be produced before jumping to any conclusions,” he said.

With the timeline, he added,“You see Trayvon could have gotten back to the house, had he gone to the house. And you see George could have gotten back to the truck, had he gone back to the truck. There’s up to 2 minutes and 32 seconds where neither did what they could have done.”

Chris Dorner is now a folk hero for the black community in California How sick is that? The guy is a mass murderer and blacks want to support him Good thing the guy took the easy way out and killed himself or y'all would be cashing in your ebt cards to pay for his defense. Stating the truth on the thread only causes you fools to call people racist and bigot Has the thought ever entered your heads that Trayvone is a punk that got blown away in a justified shooting? Just becasuse he was black down not give him the right to beat on anyone
Anyone who thinks Donner is a hero are as stupid as the people who think Zimmerman is a hero.

Don't know if you recall my complaining so much about the agenda-driven media before, but has anyone watched HLN Channel, during the day? They are following the Jodi Arias murder trial, with the same lynchmob mentality, they used to use on George Zimmerman....Now, she may or may not be guilty, but it shamefull for that network, to even put News in their title......Headline Opinion Channel.....

especially when it comes out of the mouth of a bigot like yours.

It is safe to say come out of your mouth is enough to form an opinion.

Yet you believe the media accounts of the Zimmerman case.

Today George's attorneys are heading back to court for a hearing in which they will ask the judge to delay the stand your ground hearing which had been set for April. If the state truly had no case why would O'Mara want to delay a hearing that would set his client free and protect him from civil actions?

Could it be that O'Mara doesn't want to expose his client to having to testify and face cross examination? Could it be that O'Mara doesn't want a judges decision on his clients culpability?

Could it be that O'Mara expects his client to be convicted and is already building a case for appeals?

Robert Z. Jr. you are the BEST and your support for your brother is to be commended.
At first I thought Rbt. was heading into the lion's Den, but I must say he handled himself professionally and showed his loyalty and love for his family. Good job, as I expected.
LOL Tray supporters are sooooooooo disappointed....Robert is no fool.

I simply believe, based on everything i have see so far.....that George acted in complete self defense.....Not interested in any useless, circular, longass debate about the what if's.....

You don't follow someone in a car for being black, jump out, chase after, pull out a gun, and then shoot someone in self-defense.

This teenage boy had every right in the world to go to the m/f store and walk home and not be jumped and killed by some pedophile vigilante pretending to be a cop.

George was jumped by Trayvon, as he walked back to his vehicle....unless of course, you have solid evidence otherwise?

The reputation of the local police with the reputation of activists that showed up to stir it up, turned this into a circus. if Zimmerman is guilty then he goes to jail. But stacking the deck against anyone accused and then worrying about reprisals after the fact is dangerous. We have screwed up many times with justice in America. This case did not have to be this way. If Zimmerman is voted innocent I hope there are no riots. But unlike the past, I don't believe many people are going to care. And for damn sure, the feds better not vote funding for repairs to the neighborhoods when so many other people are hurting or have their wallets fleeced by government.

Telecommunicator Spotlight: Sean Noffke Ready for Anything

"We don't have control we give advice."

Noffke was prepared for the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman incident when he received the call. He handled it professionally and calmly. People have asked if he really took the call.“I’ll say yes, that was me,” Noffke says. Others will tease him and tell him that it was a good thing that he took the call. Many personnel in his agency have told him he did a great job.

Unaware of how famous his voice had become on national networks, Noffke returned from a weeklong vacation and was lying in bed when he turned on the television. He heard a voice emanating from the TV that sounded strikingly similar to his own. He then realized it was the 9-1-1 tape being played for the world to hear.

* I noticed they keep referring to the 911 call, we know it was the non-emergency number George called.

Let's see: the teenager was on the sideWALK and the pedophile was following him in the dark because the pedophile didn't like black teenagers walking in his neighborhood.

Funny how the state of Florida insists otherwise.

Which of the pedophile's four stories are you going to use?

What EVIDENCE do you have that has an unarmed teenage boy following the ARMED pedophile who has a history of assault and violent behavior?
