Trayvon Martin Truth Coming Out …

… and it doesn’t exactly fit the narrative (Instapundit link; internal links, in order of appearance, are here, here, here, and here; red boxes are mine):

If more of this kind of info comes out, this saga seems destined to a quick media disappearing act.

Meanwhile given that President Obama has injected himself and his race (or, more correctly, half of it) into the situation (“if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”), it’s worth asking him if he would expect his son to also act like Trayvon allegedly did.

My bet is that no one has the stones to do it.

UPDATE: Speaking of stones and the lack thereof, it should be noted that Ben Jealous of the NAACP (who deflected to the supposed activity of the KKK in Sanford, Florida) and the president himself won’t condemn the New Black Panthers for issuing a $10,000 bounty for Zimmerman’s kidnapping.

  1. Relevant details at the very end of the article:

    While in life Trayvon Martin was barely 17, when it comes to justifiable homicide his size — about 6-foot-3 and 150 pounds — makes him an adult in death.

    Zimmerman, 28, is 5-foot-9 and weighs well over 200 pounds.

    So in your opinion do the pictures of Trayvon reflect his physical stature? Even saying Trayvon was 6 ft 2 inches, he still would be 5 inches higher than Zimmerman. If the pictures do not reflect his stature, are they inflammatory?, i.e. a deliberate attempt to incite public violence? So who’s the perpetrator now?

    What does this continue to say when President Obama says Trayvon could very well be his son at 6′ 2″ pounding on a Hispanic?

    We now hear demands Zimmerman be charged with a hate crime. What does this say to the Hispanic community when defending yourself against a person who is physically attacking you and is Black? Does this not incite racial resentment between Blacks and Hispanics? Despite attempts by the MSM to cast Zimmerman as a “White”, Hispanics are not going to be fooled about the implications when seeing Zimmerman’s picture. This is going to backfire on liberals, Black racists like Al Sharpton and specifically in the election where Obama can not afford to lose any Hispanic votes. Obama and his liberal allies have gravely miscalculated in their desperation regarding November. Their desperation is becoming quite palpable and thus a self fulfilling prophesy as ever more transparent attempts to change the focus off of failed energy, economic and foreign policies.

  2. “Despite attempts by the MSM to cast Zimmerman as a “White”, Hispanics are not going to be fooled about the implications when seeing Zimmerman’s picture.”

    Yeah, that’s looking like a really bad political calculation: Try to lock up votes from a group you supposedly have locked up, while alienating a group which is much less so.

  3. More information on the downward spiral that was Trayvon’s life.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/03/26/2714778/thousands-expected-at-trayvon.html

    I feel for Trayvon’s parents, who would want to believe your own child was making very poor decisions about their life and the consequences of those life choices? Heck, listening to the wife of the marine who allegedly killed all those people, specifically children in Afghanistan expressed her complete disbelief that her husband would ever kill a child. No one wants to believe their loved ones make such poor and selfish decisions thus the requirement that other people handle the judgement of the facts in an unbiased manner is necessary.

    I feel for Trayvon’s parents, but at the same time not being related to Trayvon the facts so far of his life style speak to a person who was spiraling out of control before his death. Engaging in theft, graffiti and potentially drugs are signs that he was not listening anymore to his parents. The fact that his parents didn’t know about his past behavior indicates Trayvon had effectively severed his relationship with them and rejected their parental teachings. Yes, everything Trayvon has done in the past is relevant since all of this lead to his death, they are a continuum of self destructive behavior. Everything we do in the past contributes to the decisions we make here and now. The idea of excluding his past behavior via the legal argumentation of prior bad acts is disingenuous at best in an attempt to confuse the public with the criminal trial procedure of a suspect versus determining whether there is probable cause to suspect a person was in the habit of violating the rights of others. Trayvon lashing out and acting violently by someone questioning his intent and actions is a part of that continuum of behavior. A normal reasonable person doesn’t pounce on someone just because he doesn’t like being questioned, the normal response is to blow them off and walk away. He had a phone, he could have called the police IF he felt threatened. Trayvon being of larger physical stature had the burden of deference by not engaging in fighting.

    The parents of Trayvon are being used and incited by some very evil people for their own racist purposes. Putting a bounty on Zimmerman’s head is an expression of hate and evil by a group of people who’s motives belie the idea they are seeking justice. Of all people, Blacks should recognize that justice dispensed by a mob is the path to injustice. Martin Luther King is rolling in his grave at the repudiation of the non violence he espoused. It appears the dream is dead because it was hijacked by the likes of Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakkan. This is a sad day in America when the POTUS refuses to step up to the plate to denounce racial hatred, in fact condones it by making the supportive remarks he has made and implies via those remarks that Zimmerman is guilty before he has all the facts. This is a disgusting betrayal and devolution of the Civil Rights movement.

    The MSM has yet again destroyed it’s credibility by showing pictures of a person not current with his actual age and physical stature in an attempt to bestow victimhood on Trayvon and by default vilification of Zimmerman. This is yellow journalism, it meets the very definition of unprofessional conduct.
