Probably comes as no surprise, but I think what Zimmerman did is much, much worse than being inattentive or stupid.  It is racial profiling at its very worst, and proof of what the opponents of Stand Your Ground laws have been warning against, all along.    "An outrage" doesn't even begin to describe how horrible this latest episode of Have Gun/Will Travel is.   Especially since the shooter has already gotten away with so much, and may get away with all of it.   But, I do not agree that emotional anguish prevents Martin's supporters from being able to rationally analyze the situation.

But (according to Reports) The Night Stalker Guy has engaged in a PATTERN of "stupid" Behavior over  Time ... Unfortunately, the Community didn't intervene appropriately ... until NOW ...

Honestly, Teilhard, must you continue calling Zimmerman that? He is after all a human being with a name. Even though he did something terrible, can't we at least use his name instead of an insult term?

Here's a good article that discusses the case and the 'one-minute mystery' that none of us has enough facts about to really know what happened, seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationwor....


There are two different witness accounts of what happened in that one minute. One witness claims that Zimmerman was underneath the kid being beaten and another claims that a kid was underneath a large man and not moving.

Yes, listening to the 911 tapes, there are differing reports--like one saying the man getting up was black.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

Oh, riiiiggghhht! That's a feeble excuse for using an insulting name for someone if I ever heard one.


As feeble as if I were to claim that referring to you as Ridiculous Misuse of Capital Letters Guy merely describes your actions.

I am simply describing his ACTIONS, not only that Night, but (reportedly) in other earlier Situations ...


I'm curious, though ... You seem rather keen on this Night Stalker Guy ... Are you his Cousin or something ... ???

So what did we have?  We had an NBC 911 audio that made it look like Zimmerman was profiling Trayvon Martin.  It turns out that wasn't true.  Then we had an ABC video which showed that Zimmerman wasn't injured.  Now all of a sudden we've been told that NBC doctored the audio on the 911 tape and ABC found a new layer when they enhanced their video.  News reports say that paramedics treated Zimmerman at the scene, but ABC says in the first report he wasn't injured.  So did the paramedics lie?  It's all breaking down.  The Trayvon Martin story is falling apart.

It is a sad state of affairs when national television broadcasts disinformation to bias public opinion against Zimmerman.
