CNN is reporting that three out of four Americans that they surveyed think that George Zimmerman should be arrested. That’s surprising. Given the media narrative about this incident, I would have figured that four out of four demand that he be lynched. I wonder if any of the people screaming for Zimmerman’s head would change their opinions if they knew the facts that are emerging about what really happened on February 26. On yesterday’s show, we played you the audio of a local news report about the incident. The reporter stated that Trayvon Martin’s father told the lead investigator that, in his opinion, the cries for help heard on the 911 tape were NOT his son’s. Now, there’s more evidence suggesting that Mr. Zimmerman did act in self-defense. From the Los Angeles Times:
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that police sources say Martin was the aggressor on Feb. 26, knocking Zimmerman to the ground with a single punch and then climbing on top of the 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain and slamming the back of his head into the ground. Police say this account, given by Zimmerman, is supported by eyewitnesses, according to the Sentinel’s report.
One such witness reportedly told police that he saw Martin on top of Zimmerman, striking the man, while Zimmerman cried out for help. The attack left Zimmerman bloodied, police sources told the Sentinel, and led him to fire at Martin in self-defense.
For the last two weeks, the Lame Stream Media narrative has repeated the Official Story: that Trayvon Martin was an exemplary, promising young person, gunned down by a crazed racist “white Hispanic.” They illustrate their fairy tale with photos of a smiling, angelic boy, an image that contrasts sharply with the picture of George Zimmerman that they use, in which we see a clod with a clueless expression, who appears to be ready to head to jail in an orange jumpsuit. But wait . . .
The Sentinel’s story also makes public new details about the circumstances leading up to the deadly confrontation between Zimmerman and Martin.
At the time, Martin was suspended from high school after he was found to be in possession of an empty marijuana baggie, according to the Sentinel. Martin’s school has a “zero-tolerance” drug policy, the newspaper added.
Suspended from school? Empty marijuana baggie? How can this be? I didn’t see anything about this part of the story on Al Sharpton’s show. Are we sure it was just an empty bag of Skittles? I wonder if he’ll mention it at the “race summit” he’s planning and hoping that Barack Obama will attend. If Barack doesn’t show, and he won’t, maybe he’ll send Eric Holder, who may be a lot of things, but definitely is not a “coward” when it comes to playing the race card.
