Continuing Update on the senseless killing of Trayvon Martin

As more and more details are revealed about that fatal night that George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, it becomes painfully clear, that this is a case of premeditated murder.

After spotting George Zimmerman watching him, Trayvon Martin sense danger in his spirit and what Zimmerman might not be telling the public is that his SUV could have been in Martin’s direct path to return to his father’s girlfriend home. If Martin was not familiar with the area, he probably only knew one way to get out of the gated community and one way back, not that he was approaching Zimmerman , as Zimmerman would have the 911 dispatcher and the public believe.

What we do know, is that at some point Martin spotted Zimmerman and Zimmerman began to chase him. If you listen to the 911-tape, you could clearly hear Zimmerman on foot, chasing Martin and you could hear the “sound of the rushing wind” through the phone.

That’s why the 911-operator ask Zimmerman are you chasing him and Zimmerman replied “YEA!” and the 911-operator followed up with, “YOU DON’T NEED TO DO THAT!” The police are in route.”This is clearly not an act of self-defense!”

When the 911-operator asks Zimmerman for an address and a place where the policeman could meet him, once they arrived, Zimmerman started to give an address but stop short, and said to the 911-operator, “I’ll give you my cell phone number and they can call me.” Why? Would you ask, because Zimmerman was already chasing Trayvon through the complex and he had no intendings of letting him get away. Clearly not an act of self-defense!

One of the witnesses stated that the man on top, had on a white shirt and I heard a child crying for help, then, I heard a shot and the cry for help, stopped!” Clearly not an act of self-defense on George Zimmerman’s behalf! Rather the behavior of a madman seeking revenge.

When the police arrived at the scene, almost 30 minutes later, “they found Martin’s body, face down”. If George Zimmerman was defending himself against Martin, then “his body should have been face up.”

Trayvon Martin’s family counsel should seek to determine if the bullet entered Trayvon’s body from the back or from the front. This revelation is huge!

In 2010, police waited seven weeks to arrest a lieutenant’s son who was caught on video sucker-punching a homeless Black man.
In 2005, two security guards, one the son of a longtime Sanford police officer and the other a department volunteer – killed a Black man they said was trying to run them over. Black leaders complained of a lackluster investigation. The guards ultimately were acquitted. Anyone surprised?

What we know for sure:

There have been 402 calls placed to the Sanford Police Department between 01/01/2011 – 02/26/2012. The Twin Lakes Complex only has 260 units. What does that tell you?

Cynthia Wibker, secretary of the homeowners association says that Zimmerman once caught a thief and an arrest was made. He helped solve a lot of crimes. Really? Name some of the other crimes Zimmerman help solve considering the volume of calls made to the police department.

Travis Williams, a Black 16-year-old who wears dreadlocks [and he lives there] said last year a man came to his house and accused him of stealing a bicycle. The police even came and checked the serial numbers on the bike in his garage.

Ibrahim Rashada, a homeowner in that complex states that

“Zimmerman came by here and talked about carrying guns and getting my wife more involved with guns. Zimmerman said I should have a weapon and that his wife took classes to learn how to use one. Rashada goes on to say that, ‘I do have a weapon, but I don’t walk around the neighborhood at all. I fit the stereotype that he mailed and his handing out in the complex.”

What’s wrong with that picture? Afraid to walk around in your own gated community.

“Just two weeks before this shooting, George Zimmerman called Frank Taaffe, a former neighborhood block captain at his girlfriend’s home to say he saw some Black guy doing surveillance at my house, because I had a left window open, He thwarted a potential burglary of my house.”

Taaffe goes on to say that problems in the 6-year-old community started during the recession, when foreclosures forced owners to rent out to “low-life and gangsters.”

Currently, The Retreat at Twin Lakes is 49 percent white, non-Hispanic, 23 percent Hispanic, 20 percent African American and 5 percent Asian.

George Zimmerman was originally arrested for “Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer,” when he interfered in a friend’s arrest. The charge was later reduced to simple battery, and Zimmerman entered a plea that allowed him to have a clean record and qualify for a concealed weapons permit. So, I guess Zimmerman’s record is not so squeaky clean after all.

Maybe Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee could qualify his statement that ”George Zimmerman is squeaky clean and his claims that the murder of Trayvon Martin was in self-defense is valid,” obviously; the department is holding information that the public is not aware of.

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee said that although police do not encourage watch program volunteers to carry weapons, he recognizes a citizen’s constitutional right to do so.

What the public recognizes is that an innocent young 17-year-old Black man was spotted, chased, beaten and shot dead, picked up off the ground and placed in a body bag, tagged as John Doe and taken to the morgue, because George Zimmerman decided that he had had enough of those Jack-a**es getting away with stuff and he was going to take care of it. This is premeditated murder . . . nothing less.

What the public also recognizes is that the killer of Trayvon Martin is still on the loose and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee, do you know the new address of George Zimmerman and have you advised him not to leave town while the investigation into the killing of Trayvon Martin continues?

Being a Young Black Man & Living in America: A Dangerous Combination

Young, Trayvon Martin, Black, 17, a Miami-Dade resident visiting his father in Sandford,Florida was sent to the store around 7:00p.m., during half-time of the NBA All-Star Game to get some snacks from a nearby 7-Eleven. It sounds like it should have been an uneventful trip to the store and back, especially since the store is within walking distance.

Martin, dressed in jeans, a gray hoodie and White Air Jordan’s made it to the store without incident, purchased Skittles candies and Arizona Iced Tea for his 13-year-old stepbrother.

However, his sense of peace would not last. On the way back to the gated community [The Retreat at Twin Lakes] where his father lives, he was spotted by George Zimmerman, 28, on crime watch patrol.

Zimmerman armed with a concealed weapon permit and carried a Black Kel Tek 9mm semi-automatic, reported a “suspicious person in the area,” to the police and began to follow young Martin in his SUV.

What exactly was Martin doing to arouse suspicion from Zimmerman? Was he caught selling or buying drugs? Was he caught trying to break into someone’s home or car? Did Zimmerman witness Martin keying someone’s car? Was he caught soliciting a prostitute? What? Or was Martin just caught trying to make it back home from 7-Eleven while being Black?

The police dispatcher told Zimmerman that a squad car would be dispatched and that the police would handle it.

Moments later, several calls would come into the 911 station, telling police that two men were fighting and shots; [more than one] had been fired. When Officer T. Smith arrived at the scene, he found Martin’s body lying face down on the grass, with a fatal wound to his chest, 70 yards from his father’s home. Martin had $22.00, Skittles candies and a can of Arizona Iced Tea in his pockets.

Subsequently, George Zimmerman gave the officer a statement and was free to leave. Leaving Martin, 17, Black, bleeding to death on the grass.

Trayvon Martin’s family has hired attorney Benjamin Crump, who filed a lawsuit Friday to get public records on the shooting, said “the neighborhood watch was supposed to protect Martin, not kill him.

And yet another young man loses his life while living in America and being “BLACK!

Trayvon Martin’s funeral was held March 3, in Miami. More than 1,000 people, including classmates and friends, showed up at his viewing.
