We’ve been watching all the hoopla about
the George Zimmerman trial and admit to
I never realized that so many people
actually saw the confrontation. Many in
the media blatantly call it murder but
to our knowledge only two people really
know what happened and one of those is
When the story first surfaced Mr. Zimmerman
wasn’t even charged. But the screaming
heads and activists got so much airtime
something had to be done.
The facts are that we know Mr. Zimmerman
shot Mr. Martin and Mr. Martin died. We
know that Mr. Zimmerman sustained injuries
during the confrontation. And we know Mr.
Martin was a bit of a bad boy.
If Mr. Zimmerman merely wanted to shoot
Mr. Martin, why did he wait until after
he was injured and bloody to do so?
If the incident was indeed a racist
attack by Mr. Zimmerman, why didn’t he
just shoot Mr. Martin before he got
close enough to fight?
Mr. Martin, being a bad boy is not a
reason to kill him. We do wonder
why the activists want to portray him
as an altar boy when he was not.
Accountability works both ways-
If Mr. Zimmerman acted illegally he will
be punished. If Mr. Martin is proven to
be at fault, a not guilty verdict can
not be considered a racist act.
We will wait until the jury comes back
with a verdict before we say much more
on this subject.
And this post is my opinion. If my
opinion doesn’t coincide with yours,
or if it offends you, then so be it.
But at least for the present, it is
my right to state it.
