Inconvenient facts ignored

August 16, 2013 

One person wrote, "thanks to the police, court and jury, George Zimmerman got away with murder." One can twist the facts and the eye witness testimony in this case to make up whatever story he wants, especially if the goal is to gin up the racial hatred. However, the facts speak for themselves and that is why the police, court and jury judged Zimmerman not guilty of murder. Some people just can't deal with the truth if it doesn't fit their personal agenda.

Trayvon Martin, far from the innocent child that the lame-stream media portrayed, had four minutes to get to the safety of the house where his father was staying but instead of doing that he either circled back or waited in the dark to get his chance to "ground and pound" Zimmerman, which ultimately is what led to his death. It was Zimmerman who was seen by the only eye witness to be on the ground straddled by Martin. It was only Zimmerman who had facial and head injuries. Did Martin really think that he could assault Zimmerman and that Zimmerman would just lay there and be beaten? These are all documented facts that were brought out in trial.

Unfortunately, Martin is dead but justice was done, Zimmerman was found not guilty and the race baiters need to get over it.

I thought it was interesting that the Great Divider, President Obama, didn't have a press conference to tell the public that if he had a son, he would look like Antonio West, the little white toddler that was shot point blank in the face by the two teen-age black thugs on a street in Georgia. All little Antonio was guilty of was riding in his stroller. Where is the justice in that?
