Besides the fact that almost all media outlets have lied about what race George Zimmerman is (he is a Latino/Mestizo), they are also censoring major important details of the case. Some have even published wild opinions about the 911 calls as if the opinions were factual statements.

Would you be surprised to know that the statements of the eyewitness are being censored in almost every media story about the shooting?

1. When police officers arrived, George Zimmerman had a bloody nose and was bleeding from a wound on the back on his head.
2. The eyewitness who called 911 said Zimmerman who screamed for help.
3. The eyewitness also reports that Zimmerman was on the ground and Martin was on top of him beating on him.

This information was made public by a local Orlando television station on February 27th. We now have 22 days of rampant media reports that omit these facts. Once you see what information the police had, it is obvious why they did not arrest him. They were simply abiding by Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. Police are now required to have evidence that a shooter was not acting in self-defense.

How many times have you heard the phrase “Trayvon Martin was a cheerful person,” but you had never heard the words of the eye-witness to the shooting?

Each time you see a “mainstream” news outlet rant about the Zimmerman/Martin case, ask yourself why these three facts mentioned above are missing from the story. Ask yourself why the media is called Zimmerman a white man instead of a Latino. Ask yourself if you think the story is really news or is it agitation/propaganda designed to advance a political agenda.

This past weekend in Chicago alone, black and Latino gangbabgers shot 10 people and wounded 40. The youngest fatality is only six years old. This received no national coverage. Why does this one shooting warrant weeks of coverage?

Even if you think Zimmerman was completely unjustified in firing his gun; ask yourself why 99% of the now thousands of articles are solely from the point of view of the grieving family without trying give a balanced account of the events.

Black....you might want to read up on the new's...AOLs new's has changed thier story ..........
I do ask ..why is it that this Trayvons pic's are all of him when he was like???..12 an not recient??....
Did you know that Trayvon was reported just a week before for assult on a bus driver???....Could it be that this "CHILD" was really a punk thug????
Those "STAND YOUR GROUND LAWS" was changed so folks dont have to fear or run from bullys an punks no more....Seems some need to learn the NEW LAWs
I never did buy the storys that was first told about this....this "CHILD" was just being portrayed to be "TOO INNOCENT" an Zimmerman was being made out to be just TOO Guilty...
I said from the jump it smelled alot like that Duke university with those Lacross players deal....Seems i just might have been right.....

MAYBE YOU SHOULD WATCH DR. DREW...THEY PLAINLY SHOW PICS OF ZIMMERMAN, STATEMENTS CAME FROM THE DR. & AN EMT IF HIS NOSE WERE BROKEN WHERE IS THE BLOOD & ALSO PICS OF THE BACK OF HIS HEAD & GUESS WHAT NOTHING!! WITNESS STATED THAT WHOMEVER HAD ON THE WHITE SHIRT WAS ON TOP & SURE ENOUGH GUESS WHAT ZIMMERMAN HAD ON!! I THINK THE MAIN POINT IS ZIMMERMAN IS HERE TO SAY HE WAS FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE, TRAYVON IS NOT. HOWEVER WE ALL HAVE TO REMEMBER GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES. IT IS CLEAR TO SEE THAT ZIMMERMAN WAS THE AGGRESSOR IN THIS SITUATION. DID YOU EVER THINK MAYBE JUST MAYBE HE RAN UP ON TRAYVON & THE ONLY THING TRAYVON NEW TO DO WAS TO DEFEND HIMSELF & MAYBE JUST MAYBE HE WAS GETTING THE BEST OF ZIMMERMAN & SO BECAUSE ZIMMERMAN DIDN'T MIND HIS BUSINESS THAT NIGHT THIS CHILD IS DEAD. BUT HOW DIFFERENT DO YOU THINK THE CASE WOULD BE IF ONLY TRAYVON HAD OF HAD A GUN.

ALSO THEY SAY THE POLICE WANTED TO ARREST ZIMMERMAN IT CAME DOWN TO ONE MAN'S VOICE & HE CHOSE FOR THAT NOT TO HAPPEN. ALSO IF YOU CHECK INTO IT YOU MAY BE SUPRISED TO FIND OUT THAT THE MAN THAT WROTE THE "STAND YOU OWN GROUND LAW" SAYS THIS LAW DOES NOT PERTAIN THIS CASE.

I hate that someone died but the kid was walking around acting strange, so being part of the N Watch dude checked him out and the kid went after him. If he shot the guy in cold blood why did he have 911 on the phone with him? From theway the police report was filled out;after folowing trarvon around while on the phone with 911 Trayvon confronted the man and punched him in the face. He feel to the concrete and hit his head. The witness on the steps saw it and yelled out that he was too calling 911 and returned into the house to do so and when he returned outside Trayon had been shot. There is wrong on both sides it seems because he should not have assulted Goerge, and at the same time Goerge should have had clear site of a weapon and the intention to use it before he pulled the trigger. I personaly can see both sides of the story. If I was takng a walk and someone kept following me I would proble ask them what their problem was with me. Also if I was on neiborhood watch and I saw a stange male lerking around and he aproached me and assulted me it would be very hard to wait for him to pull out a weapon before I defended myself. Tis is a sad situation, it was a ki and he was unarmed.
