George Zimmerman's Mom Thinks His Arrest Failed America Just to Please You

Apr 11, 2013 Full story: www.theatlanticwire.com 23

The mother of George Zimmerman released a letter on the one-year anniversary of his "most unfortunate arrest" Thursday, claiming that Florida police took him into custody to "placate the masses" - and not because he shot and killed an unarmed 17-year-old buying some Skittles.

Yeah. What about Zimmerman's rights?

If you give up the right to stalk and harass teenagers, and point loaded guns at them, what will they want you give up next, the right to kill cats?

She is his mother and as such is blind to all but the love for her son.

She forgets that Trayvon’s mother doesn’t have a son because of the actions of Zimmerman.

Trayvon's mother abandoned her son long ago and left him to live with strangers the last years of his life. He was not living with her and she never took care of him like a true son. She dídn't bother to travel to see him in the morgue like a true caring mother but she certainly was quick to trademark his name and travel around the world with a trashcan to collect money. She extorted money from the housing complex. She is an opportunist in retrospect. And her son was a child? Then why did she let him leave her side to a strange town? She was a negligent mother who had no idea who her son was and what he was doing in high school. Your sob story about his mother no longer washes. Your sob story about Trayvon is perpetuated by a media that hid his 17 year old vile misogynist sexualized attitude toward young black girls that I've seen before in boys raised in this kind of negligent environment. You solve no problem in society by blaming those who are blameless.
What is your source(s)? I have never read any of what you’ve claimed in your post.

Again, Trayvon was not an "innocent child" as the racist perpetuators try to present to extort money from the housing complex. The following recent stories show how Obama pushes hate on black teens too young to know better than to listen to his personal hate agenda against whites and America. Would you call these murderers innocent children too? Wake up.
White Ohio Couple Beaten To Death With Sledgehammer
Yesterday we brought you the story of a self-proclaimed race-based attack against a white woman by three black people. One of the perps who beat her with a hammer, and then lit her on fire, admitted they killed Melinda McCormick because of a “hatred for white people”.
Unfortunately it is now customary for the mainstream media to ignore the story because the victim was white and the racist attacker was black - this fact does not fit their agenda – Only White People Can Be Racist –….. Reverse the races and this would have been carried on CNN – MSNBC and all the alphabet channels all day.
Also unfortunately, Ms. McCormick was not the only victim to suffer a death by hammer as a result of racism.
In Ohio, a couple, Mr and Mrs Schobert, were brutally murdered by Shawn Eric Ford Jr, who choose to use a sledgehammer.
Mr. Schobert was a lawyer, and Mrs Schobert was active in their community civic groups. They were a loving couple raising an adopted black daughter Chelsea.
Shawn Ford was Chelsea’s boyfriend, and he brutally attacked her fracturing her skull and stabbing her numerous times. She was rushed to the hospital. Her mother and father stopped her boyfriend, the attacker, from visiting her in the hospital. So the boyfriend, Ford, went to their home with another teen, and beat them to death with a sledgehammer.
GOOD MEANING LIBERALS NEED TO WAKE UP.
These families would be alive now if they could defend themselves with protection against sledge hammers and brute strength of assailants. Obama is a terrible influence on black youth encouraging them to mindlessly hate Americans based on their skin color. These victims were white liberals who cared but were attacked because of race based hate fomented by the Obamas.
It is your belief that Mr. Martin beat a white couple to death with a hammer?

you should be Zimmerman's lawyer.

Zimmermann is an upstanding citizen and a patriot.
He did society a favor by killing that scum gang banger.

Most likely, Zimmerman also prevented another burglary, rape, or murder by removing him from among the living.

Furthermore, Zimmerman removed one more leech from the welfare rolls and eliminated future offpring from this punk who had a lengthy criminal record.

democRATS condone gang bangers and their conduct, just as they condone muslims who go on jihad murder rampages on U.S. soil, and mass killings by illegal Mexicans.

This is because these three groups are considered to be politically correct.
They are voters for democRATS.

They both got a little justice, martin played thug life and got to see how the thug life ends. Zimmerman is a dumb ass and found out what happens when you go looking for trouble playing mr policeman. He is innocent but stupid.

I am saddened to see he is not going to have the stand your ground hearing, I wanted the hear shaprton and jessie cry over it.

Stupid, yes.

It is my understanding that as the stalkee, Mr Martin was entitled under Florida law (stand your ground) to defend himself. Zimmerman shot Martin as a direct result of Martin exercising that right against Zimmerman's threatening and aggressive behavior.

Consider for a moment, perhaps put your self in Martin's shoes. This ASSHOLE is slinking along behiond you, stalking you. He is carrying a gun.

You try to avoid him, but he follows you.
You confront him.
He brandises his gun.
You hit him.
You fight
He shoots you dead.
"stand your ground" didn't work for you.
Are you the victim, or the perpetrator ?

Under Florida Law Zimmerman is not entitled to protections under the stand your ground law if he is violating the stalking statute. Only problem the only place Zimmerman committed stalking is in mr bills mind and that's just not good enough. Rest assured as bad as the florida prosecutors wants Zimmerman's ass if he was stalking they would have charged him but they didn't. There is also no evidence that Zimmermen pulled his gun before he was assaulted either, just another thing that exist only in mr bills head.

If martin had of just walking to where he was going nothing would have happened other than a police call.

Prosecution has not case they will have a trial, zimmerman will be acquitted, there might be a civil trial after that where zimmerman will use the stand your ground immunity hearing to head off any lawsuits. Jessie, Sharpton and mr bill will whine about it and that will be it.

Sadly you shouldn't work as a legal advisor although you attempt it. Crump already has that role established and he is in danger of being put on the stand for creating false testimony with one figmentary cell phone to an imagined girl friend. You should stop while you are ahead. Records in the court deposition show that Trayvon's cell phone was dead hours before he died. There was no girlfriend on the phone, and the said gf was not 16 years old, she was 18. Records hidden to the public but available to the court show Trayvon had a serious police record and had been suspended from school for 10 days. To get a 10-day suspension possibly to be expelled from school means he was in serious trouble. He died before those 10 days were up having been abandoned by his legal mother, Sabryna, to go to a stranger's home in a strange town. Evidence not reported in the media but known in the court is that Trayvon was not in the last few years of his life even residing with his legal mother. Twitters from Trayvon revealed he had an ugly insulting attitude toward girls abnormal for a 17 year old. He was no angelic 12 year old as the media likes to portray. The mother was no doting mother and she hardly saw him during the last few years with him living away from her conveniently. She abandoned her child but had no problems trademarking his name for $$$ when the opportunity came to make money with the help of other grifters. The root of the problem was not George nor the housing complex.

Mr Zimmerman ADMITTED to stalking Martin, following carrying his gun. Also he called the police and they warned him NOT TO STALK Mr Martin. You must have missed that.

I am not sure when Zimmerman pulled his gun on Martin, but he was stalking him carrying a loaded gun; in hand or in belt makes little difference, and I don't know the legal difference between armed stalking as overt assault, and stalking carrying a concealed weapon under Florida law.

Bottom line, Zimmerman's gun came to shoot Martin dead.

Gosh gee mr bill why did'nt they charge him with stalking then if he was stalking. This is probably a tough leap of logic for you but perhaps his conduct was not stalking except in your preconceived mind.

All martin had to do is not attack zimmerman and everything would have been ok.

The would-be complainant is dead, by Zimmerman's hand. Don't get yourself hung up on the charging of a misdemeaner within a capital crime. Time will tell.

But, what do you call following someone for blocks, carrying a weapon?

I call it someone who happens to be armed is following someone because that is what happened. I know you like the pretend he is stalking but if you read the Florida stalking statute those actions do not rise to the level of stalking as defined by the code section. Like it or not Florida goes by the elements of the crime to determine what constitutes stalking not what is in mr bills mind. Also the fact that martin is dead does not impact the states ability to bring charges against Zimmerman if he were stalking. If that were the case they would not have charged him with murder. Fact of the matter is that nobody but you thinks he was stalking anyone.

This incident would have long ago been put to rest based on its own merits if the race baiters like you had not hijacked the process.

Well just so you will know in florida for someone following someone in order for it to be stalking it has to be done in a manner that is harassing or threatening. But it still has to be more than that it has to also serve no legitimate purpose. But it does not stop there, it can't be something he just did once it has to be done repeatedly.

Even if he was harassing and threatening which they can not show he was you have the problem of it being done repeatedly. He could not by any stretch of the imagination be guilty of stalking.

Sounds like Zimmerman passed the test to me:

* stalking it has to be done in a manner that is harassing or threatening ... Shadowing Martin with a gun.

* also serve no legitimate purpose...ppolice warned him to stop.

* it being done repeatedly... block after block

Still, Martin was shot & killed while "standing his ground."
Lesson is, don't stand your ground when the other guy has a gun and you don't.
