The "City of Gold" in Georgia

I found this post on another site.
Hello. Don’t recognize me? That’s OK; I understand.
My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.
I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty... too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.
See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.
Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me - so why should he care?
I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media didn’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.
There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.
I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.Isn’t this a great country?
So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell your friends about me, tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.
I won’t hold my breath.
I don’t have to anymore.

Well "Antonio West"(whoever wrote this in your name), two wrongs don't make a right.
Zimmerman should have stayed in his truck. The trial centered on the fight rather than facts leading up to it.
People who have made their choice as to which side they stand with will argue with you until the hottest place freezes over and you can't change most of the minds on either side.
For many months I felt that Zimmerman was justified until I got the 911 call audio, the transcript of that call and the map that resulted from what GZ said and the path that he took. Had GZ NOT made that left turn on his way STRAIGHT back to his truck then he would still be wrong but more right than making that left turn.
Below is what some guy wrote that sums it up.
Facts were not zeroed in on.
Fact: GZ called 911 on a black guy, not white, pink or red, but black.
Fact: GZ told dispatch that TM was "a real suspicious guy" not that he had done anything. Not that he was carrying a plastic shopping bag.
Fact: GZ told dispatch that TM "This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something".
Fact: GZ NEVER told dispatch that he was Neighborhood Watch.
Fact: GZ NEVER told TM that he was Neighborhood Watch.
Fact: Dispatch asked GZ "Are you following him?" GZ answered "Yeah".
Fact: dispatch told GZ "Ok, we don't need you to do that". GZ replied "OK" and followed TM anyway.
Fact: Sanford police volunteer coordinator Wendy Dorival told GZ right up front when setting up NW, "This is not about being a vigilante police force. You're not even supposed to patrol on neighborhood watch. And you're certainly not supposed to carry a gun."
Fact: The path that the killing was on was a 90 degree walk from the walk where GZ hung up the call and then turned around. The map was made using GZ own words. If he turned around and went straight then that walk led STRAIGHT to his truck. Instead he made a left turn off of that walk onto another walk.
The killing took place past 2-1/2 homes, behind the 3rd home, down the walk from the straight walk to his truck.
GZ had no reason to make that left turn except to look for TM.
Remember, he first told dispatch that TM had headed to the back gate. GZ then went straight down the walk to where he could see the back gate. Not seeing TM on that street with the back gate he then turned around and took the left turn. The only other logical way that TM could have went.
The trial focused on the fight rather than the fact that GZ should never have been playing cop in the dark with a gun.

Forget RNT. Just don't go there. Cancel your subscription if you have one. I cancelled mine, didn't renew. RNT is a deer-in-headlights on the web. They don't know what to do and can't manage a forum.
They are already in money problems land and don't have a clue.

SewTheySay I believe the post you quoted was pointing out how we value the life of a teen thug over that of an innocent baby.
Before you whine over the use of "thug" make sure you know all about Trayvon. The dope smoking, gun hunting, school delinquent, violent trash talking, kicked out of his mother's house Trayvon, not the little 12 year old Trayvon that you and the press would like us to buy in to.

Both had prior offenses. But that does NOT wipe out the facts listed above. GZ had no business MAKING TM a "suspicious" and TM had the right to freely come and go.
I'm thinking you use the "thug" term because TM was black. One could call GZ a "wetback" because he is Hispanic.
