On a raining evening in Sanford Florida on February 26, 2012 a 17 year old African American Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.  The police arrived within two minutes of the shooting.  Zimmerman was taken into custody, treated for head injuries, then questioned for five hours.  The police chief said that Zimmerman was released for lack of evidence and lack of legal grounds for arrest and that Zimmerman had the right to defend himself with lethal force.

The media immediately lead by NBC news jumped race-baiting reporting by claiming an AfricanAmerican was gunned down by a white man.  NBC went as far as manipulating the 911 call and not showing photographs of George Zimmerman with blood on his face and back of his head.  When it was discovered that he was Hispanic, he was then called a “white-hispanic”.

The President of the United States pm March 23, 2012 made a statement “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”. 

Due to public pressure, George Zimmerman was arrested on April 11, 2012.   He was subsequently charged with 2nd Degree Murder and Manslaughter.

The trail took place between June 10, 2013 and July 13, 2013.  At the end of the trail, George Zimmerman was acquitted and found not guilty on all charges.

Since the verdict, there has continued controversy raised by Rev Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, NAACP and seem to make every effort to make this a race issue.   The NAACP is pressuring the Justice department to bring civicl rights violations against Zimmerman.

On July 19, 2013 the President issued another statement;



This could have been my son, he could have been Trayvon too.  My son while raised in a middle class home, he became very rambunctious from about 16 to 20, he too smoked pot, drank and would have looked like Trayvon a lot.  I worried during these years that he didn’t end up in a ditch somewhere or shot due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time.   So I get the tragedy of a 17 year old being shot.

This could have been my son, he could have been George too.  My son is now much older, more mature has become what we’d consider now a good man.  He works hard, he lives in a neighborhood that has had its troubles with burglary, theft, vandalism.  So I could see him too doing his part to keep his neighborhood safe.


A lot has been said about Trayvon’s rights.  It is a tragedy that he died that night.  From the testimony and case presented by the Special Prosecutor, the jury found Zimmerman Not-Guilty on all counts.  Our justice system has spoken.  But some of our political leaders, including our President think there is something more here.  Is our President incapable of supporting the due process that took place in Florida?   Did not George Zimmerman stand trial?

What about George’s rights?  George should have been “innocent until proven guilty”, but instead the media and this very President, convicted him prior to any facts being presented in this case.  What about Georges rights?  Is not this President and his Administration reaching beyond their authority to harass and vilify George Zimmerman by stoking this as a Racial Attack and now chasing civil rights violations when their very own FBI says Zimmerman isn’t a racist?  The case, including over 30 witnesses interviewed by the FBI proved that George was not a racist.  In fact, you would say he stood up for minorities, being a minority himself.  Read FBI Reports: Zimmernan not a racist

What about George’s rights?

Could you see yourself being overrun by a media and blood thirsty political group?

I could.
