Trayvon Would’ve Turned 19 Today And The Monster Who Killed Him Is A ‘Celebrity’

1070090_446061578826099_1127556118_n

Trayvon Martin would have celebrated his 19th birthday today. He was robbed of his life almost two years ago, when he was shot by George Zimmerman seven days after he turned 17.

Martin never got the chance to become the adult that so many were alleging that he was the night that he was shot. Although he was a 17-year old armed with only some Skittles and iced tea, there were hordes of people rushing to the defense of a man with a history of violence. A man who was armed with a gun and never had to get out of his car to begin with. A man who decided to engage with Trayvon, took his life, than appealed to the rest of America to see his side. They saw it. Some defended him relentlessly while smearing the name of a dead kid they were convinced was a thug who deserved what he got.

Now, less than two years later – Zimmerman has shown himself for what he really is several times – a violent man who likes to wave his guns around. He no longer has to play the role of the meek, serious defendant who was only protecting his life. The rest of America is seeing it now – whether they will admit their faith in him was wrong is another thing. He’s pulled a gun on his ex-wife and girlfriend. He’s become a “celebrity” for shooting a child and getting away with it. His camp decided to release the announcement that he will be boxing rap star DMX in a celebrity boxing ring – today of all days.

Martin isn’t turning 19 today because Zimmerman was a racist with a gun. He walks free because the State of Florida has proven that they are a-ok with racial profiling and vigilantism. And I didn’t want this piece to be about George Zimmerman – but since Trayvon is gone, the only gift I have is to let his parents know

I believed you. I always believed you. Your son was murdered and his murderer walks free. I am so sorry.

      Thank you for this, Maria. You always say everything I do or think when it comes to this case, this tragedy, this failure of justice.

    • http://mother--bored.tumblr.com/ Aimee Ogden

      I had heard he was doing “celebrity” boxing (barf to whatever venue thought that was cool to set up) but I didn’t realize it was today of all days. Ugh, that poor family. I’m usually not a person who thinks violence solves anything but I would not be terribly sad if DMX took this slimy fucknugget apart like a jigsaw puzzle.

      • JLH1986

        DMX is haggling over money. I hope they can pay him enough to that Zimmerman says he’s going to donate his paycheck to charity. My guess is it’s the “George Zimmerman Get out of Jail again” charity.

      • AmazingE

        I’m kinda bummed that DMX is haggling over money, he seems like the kind of guy that would be happy to do it for free. Everybody’s gotta eat, though I suppose.

      • JLH1986

        Yea it’s not like he’s relevant in the music industry anymore so I assume that’s his meal ticket. Either way I hope he smashes Georgie boy’s face in.

    • Mystik Spiral

      George Zimmerman is a rancid piece of shit. I can’t believe he doesn’t have his own “reality” show yet.

      • JLH1986

        My guess is this “fight” is a build up to that. The effed up part is I think he’d have a huge following.

    • AmazingE

      I read about this earlier and almost vomited into my coffee cup. My only consolation is that if this fight ends up actually happening, (I have my doubts) X will probably wreck him. I know it won’t solve anything and it won’t bring back a murdered child, but I can’t deny that I would absolutely love to watch this twat get the snot beat out of him. Judging by the list of people who wanted to fight him, I’m not alone. I think the article I read said there were like 1500 “celebrities” that expressed an interest in participating.

      • Guest

        Trayvon was murdered? That’s a news flash.

      • jack_sprat2

        Since when are aggravated assault and a credible threat of worse an affirmative defense to a charge of murder? Oh, wait…. That would be always.

    • K.

      I’m going to say something unpopular, I’m sure, but I don’t believe George Zimmerman is innocent; I do believe that the law was followed. It is a sad, sad reality but in person-to-person self-defense cases in which one person is dead and there are no eyewitnesses, it’s generally going to be hard to convict the survivor. The court of public opinion, however, was often heartless, racist, and hateful in their treatment of Martin, his girlfriend, and his family and THAT’s the terrible injustice I see in our country.

      I am heartbroken for Trayvon Martin’s family and disgusted by the media circus surrounding Zimmerman. Sadly, I think that it’s only a matter of time before he does something else crazy and there will be another victim.

      • JLH1986

        I would agree with everything you said. Except I think there should have been some repercussions for Zimmerman for getting out of his car, for following when he was instructed not to. That’s criminal negligence. My opinion doesn’t matter and I’ve accepted that. But while Zimmerman couldn’t have been convicted of the charges brought, negligence at the very least should have been on the table, endangering the life of a minor.

      • Kay_Sue

        I would personally have used that in a civil suit for wrongful death. OJ was never criminally convicted, but Nicole’s family went that route and won the civil suit.

      • K.

        Yes, I would do that too. It’s MUCH harder (as I believe it SHOULD be if we’re putting people’s lives in the balance) to convict someone in criminal court versus civil. I haven’t heard anything about what the Martin family is going to do, but I’d support that. I’d also understand though, if they are tired of court and just want to go on in peace. Sigh. Really sad.

      • JLH1986

        I have a very difficult time articulating my frustration with this case. It mostly comes out “MOTHERFUCKING SONS OF BITCHES!”

      • jack_sprat2

        In a civil case, verdict in favor of the plaintiff merely requires a preponderance of the evidence. Here’s the problem: The prosecution, despite their promise to the trial judge, to introduce SOME such evidence in the criminal case, NEVER DID SO. Indeed, the PROGRESSIVE trial lawyer Alan Dershowitz–who was on O.J. Simpson’s ‘Dream Team’–stated unequivocally, in a written article, that the State’s Attorney should be disbarred, both for LYING to the Judge on that score AND for bringing a case for which he had NO supporting evidence, but for which plenty of EXCULPATORY evidence existed. Nor has anyone come up with any such evidence since the trial.

        Zimmerman ‘smells’ wrong, but that’s as likely to be prejudice against HIM as it is to be confirmation of his guilt. (Read Sartre’s L’Etrangere, for a fine examination of injustice in such matters.)

      • K.

        Sadly, I also don’t think that it’s criminal negligence to neglect the instructions of a 911 operator (he called 911, right?). 911 operators, to my knowledge, do not have any kind of legal authority, especially over the phone and it’s not a crime to decide not to follow their suggestions. Even if he had called the police directly I’m not sure that even THEY would have the absolute authority to stop him over the phone–ie, it would be strange to me if the police could issue an order that one could be criminally liable for over the phone because they are not there to properly assess the situation.

        Also not sure about endangering a minor—my understanding of that is that it usually has to do with things like selling kids cigarettes or alcohol or doing drugs in their presence. Zimmerman’s defense, that he shot in self-defense, makes the fact that Martin was 16 irrelevant—16 is old enough to be a threat, plus Zimmerman could easily claim that it wasn’t apparent to him Martin was a child.

      • JLH1986

        There were no laws that he violated in theory because dispatchers have no authority. But I feel like he knowingly endangered everyone around him and criminal negligence should have been an option But I don’t think Florida’s criminal negligence would cover that. Sadly.

      • Paul White

        The fact is that he (apparently) did not violate any laws leading up to him being attacked. If he had it’d have been an easy conviction. But he didn’t, and there was plenty of evidence of him being hit in the head a few times.

      • JLH1986

        I don’t disagree with the verdict in legal terms. I disagree with the fact that it feels racially motivated and we can do nothing about it. And I’m sure Martin did hit him. If a man were chasing me and yelling at me when I was in my own neighborhood and attacked me I’d probably hit him in the head a few times too. It’s unfortunate that Zimmerman’s mind numbingly bad decisions aren’t something that can be prosecuted and that unlike most mind numbingly bad decisions it wasn’t just himself that was hurt. Though I believe in karma so if he continues to put all this bad out there, it will eventually come back to bite him in the ass.

      • Paul White

        question: How does it feel racially motivated? What did Zimmerman do that made it feel racial? Mention the kids race when the dispatcher asked for a description?

      • Gangle

        Deciding that a black kid wearing a hoodie must automatically be a dangerous thug needing to be brought to justice for some crime he obviously just committed. You know, that crime of walking to the shop to buy snacks.

      • Paul White

        you know though? If I saw a guy I didn’t recognize cutting between houses in my neighborhood I’d be a bit anxious too. I might or might not call 911, but it would stick out. Regardless of race, because the behavior is odd.

      • Gangle

        Would you follow him down, confront him, harass him and then shoot him with your sidearm? Even if you saw him breaking and entering, to me this is unacceptable. Also, the kid lived in the neighbourhood. I know the kids in my neighbourhood. Not by name, but I know they live here. I would be wary too, if I saw them cutting over fences. But if I was going to do anything, I would report it. Not hunt the kid down.

      • Paul White

        No, I’d call the cops. I don’t want to get involved.

        Unless I saw him B&E. If he broke into my neighbors on the right side of me? The ones that are old and disabled? Or the guy across the street that’s homebound? Then yeah I’d go in and get involved and yes, I would shoot if I felt threatened.

      • Gangle

        Vigilantism doesn’t work. Only for batman. And everyone knows that batman doesn’t own guns.

      • Paul White

        Trying to help my neighbors isn’t vigilantism. Stopping a crime in progress is actually entirely legal which precludes the definition of vigilantism from applying.

        If I see a guy bust out a window and hop into my neighbor’s house you bet your ass I’m calling the cops and following in.

      • Gangle

        Good luck with that. I hope your extensive training and experience in conflict resolution for dangerous and volatile situations is up to date. I would hate to see a situation escalate out of your control.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        Paul, good post. But people leave out the particulars of this case and speak in generalities. In short, they displace the factual with the theoretical.
        Even the pro Zimmerman folks cannot nearly articulate the specific known events and footsteps of these two men. And the pro Martin folks arent really concerned with these facts at all.
        In this case, people want to say that Zimmerman was right or he was wrong. Yet this case is simply an event where you have a watchman that seen someone suspicious to him and loosely followed in his truck. At one point the youth ran away and Zimmerman simply got out and ran to the point he last saw Martin as to tell police where he went. Thats it!

        Respectfully,

      • Momma425

        If I saw someone that I felt looked like he was up to no good in my neighborhood, I would call the police. I am not a very strong female, and I’m like 5’2 so no, I would not stop my car or stalk the person around the neighborhood.
        My family was listening to this case, and I turned to my very white younger brother. Honestly, if he was someone I didn’t know, and wandering the neighborhood wearing sagging pants and a hoodie with the hood up- I might call the cops and report him. It has nothing to do with race, at least for me.

        Now, the only way I would SHOOT or point a gun at someone is if they broke into my home. I certainly would not tail a child or adult around the neighborhood carrying a gun on my hip.

      • jack_sprat2

        You’re determined to leave out all of the pertinent facts, aren’t you? He parked his car 100 YARDS from the kid’s front door. Then, he remained inside the car for another four minutes. Why, when Zimmerman finally emerged from the car, was Martin not already chilling in front of his Dad’s TV?

        These facts argue that Martin waylaid Zimmerman, angrily confronting him. Who threw down, we’ll never know, but ALL of the physical evidence AND the only witness testimony supported Zimmerman’s story, not yours or the State’s.

        It isn’t a crime to follow someone in the streets. Nothing which Zimmerman did constitutes harassment, in the legal sense, even were the State’s version of events true. A sustained, aggravated battery of an armed man is legally a deadly threat, should that weapon be exposed to the assailant and he not immediately back down, even should the assault not otherwise be deadly.

      • Gangle

        Zimmerman followed this kid TO HIS FREAKING HOUSE??!!! AND WAITED OUTSIDE IT???? That is all kinds of messed up. Zimmerman is a punk creepozoid.

      • Albert8184

        Because the person feeling the motivation is the person with the racial motivation in his own mind.

      • AlbinoWino

        He made references to “these assholes, these fucking punks. They always get away” on the 911 phone call. While this may not point to explicit racism it does make you wonder what he was referring to. That his very presence in his own community was automatically suspect as a young black man. What made him so threatening to Zimmerman walking alone at night in a hoodie to buy snacks? The racial link is partially speculative but if you look at statistics of how likely someone is to be convicted if they are white and kill a black person and the reverse, the results can be pretty appalling. Also, look at the sentences assigned for these crimes.

      • Momma425

        Didn’t he say that there had been robberies in the area? Couldn’t he have been referring to robbers as being the assholes, punks, and frustrated that they have gotten away?

      • AlbinoWino

        So then how did he narrow down out of everyone who could have been wandering around that night that Trayvon Martin had to be the culprit? Because all young black men should be seen as suspects by their very existence?

      • Momma425

        Because Trayvon was a large person whom he didn’t recognize, he was walking in the dark between homes in which he didn’t live, stopped in someone’s yard who previously had a break-in, and seemed to be in no hurry to get out of the rain. That’s why. Black, white, purple- I don’t care. I might suspect something as well.

      • jack_sprat2

        His reference was likely to the wave of brazen burglars who had recently plagued the neighborhood. At least three of them had been seen in the act, by neighbors, but the cops always arrived too late. (That latter fact argues for a local criminal, as no vehicle was ever mentioned.)

      • maxtormaxtor .

        AlbinoWino, thank for your post.
        You ask ‘what made Martin suspicious”. There are two issues here, first of all Zimmerman, like everyone else is the barer of definitions as to why they percieve someone as suspicious or not. Even the neighborhood watch program materials say that it is YOU that determines what is suspicious and to call the PD with those concerns “even if yoiur suspicions are unfounded”.
        Secondly, here are a few things that made Martin suspicious;

        Martin emerged from the dark in between buildings that Zim knew that Martin didnt live.

        Martin then stopped in Frank Taffes yard who had been broken into before.

        Martin had no apparent destination.

        Martin wasnt in a hurry to get out of the rain.

        Martin approached Zimmerman in his truck on foot.

        Zimmerman didnt recognize Martin.

        Martin was young.

        Martin was obscuring his features with a hoodie.

        Martin had something in his pockets.

        Some of these things were listed in the Watch programs list of what may be deemed as suspicious.
        Remember, these observations arent required to prove guilt but to only to serve as a basis for Zims own suspiciouns whether they are founded or not.

        Respectfully,

      • AlbinoWino

        Just because Martin seemed suspicious to Zimmerman doesn’t mean he should have done all of the things he did. All he had to do was call the police and wait for them to respond to see if he was indeed any threat. I’m sure police get tired of these calls. When I was a teenager someone called the cops on my group of friends because we were in a park at 9:00 pm “frolicking”. Man am I glad I didn’t encounter someone like Zimmerman. Any number of things could be considered suspicious by any of us at any given time. The reality is if you’re a young black man, you’re more likely to be seen this way. All Zimmerman had to do was wait for the police and that would have been enough as a vigilante neighborhood watch. He chose to take matters into his own hands with a firearm. If I were Trayvon and some man started following me, I’d be pretty alarmed too. I just find it very convenient how many people ignore Trayvon’s sense of safety and how he very well probably felt like he was defending himself. At the end of the day, Zimmerman wasn’t even a member of law enforcement but he just felt like being judge, jury, and executioner in a matter of minutes which ended in the death of a kid. A lot of the things you’re describing as “suspicious” are just ridiculous.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        AlbinoWino, there is much that I could address but that would be too lengthy. Afew things to consider in general is that people accuse GZ of being a wanna-be hero with a gun looking for oppurtunities to play sherriff.
        Yet GZs gun was in its holster up until some 60 seconds into the fight.
        People consider the events prior to the shooting as frenetic and explosive at the time. GZ didnt think so. He intentionally called the non emergency number to PD and talked calmly the whole time. At some point Martin ran and GZ ran to see where he went so he could tell the arriving officers where Martin went. The PD asked GZ not to follow and GZ immedietly complied and stayed on the phone with PD giving them better directions and saying that Martin was now gone. After GZ hung up the phone is when the altercation started.
        In short, there is none of this gun wielding sherriff wanna-be running around in the dark with gun in hand itching to shoot the very people(blacks)whom he had helped and volunteered for previously.
        GZ is a registered Democrat. GZ is a black activist which is provable with documentation. GZ had black friends and blacks that vouched for him after the incident.
        GZ is a benefactor, a volunteer and a community activist.

        Respectfully,

      • jack_sprat2

        I’m confused as to your point. Is it that it’s reasonable to suppose that following someone, especially after a delay of FOUR MINUTES, will result in an aggravated assault against the follower?

      • maxtormaxtor .

        JHL1986,
        Good post. But concerning “endangering everyone around him”, this is true. Yet the level of danger Zim posed was consistant with the level of crime in the neighborhood and the force needed to address it. The HOA voted to have a watch program and knew and seen Zim in his duties.
        There is a cost and danger in defending yourself and your neighbors.
        If you live in a low crime affluent neighborhhod in Kansas you dont require any watchman. If you live in Matamoros Mexico you want 10 Zimmermans under your daughters bed and on the roof with machine guns.
        If you live in Sanford Florida with frequent felonies and 300+ other calls to PD in your neighborhood then yes, you need a guy that drives around and looks for suspicious people and act accordingly within the law. Zimmerman and his actions were within what is reasonable for the neighborhood.

        Respectfully,

      • AlbinoWino

        If I wanted some average person as a neighborhood watch, i wouldn’t want them to have a criminal history. I also wouldn’t want them armed and to have an irrational hero complex. I would want that person to ultimately wait for the police to deal with those situations as they don’t have all of the proper training. Having my house robbed would be shitty but not the end of the world. I don’t accept the death of Trayvon Martin as simply collateral damage. If you were the parent of a child wrongfully shot for being at the wrong place at the wrong time would you shrug it off and say oh well, Zimmerman is just here to make things safer? I sincerely doubt it.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        AlbinoWino, thank you for your reply.
        You say that you would have been more selective about choosing watchman? Or, you could volunteer yourself! And failing that you might find that no one else wants to volunteer either. You will see that people want to play X-Box and eat pizza instead of volunteering for free.
        You refer to GZs criminal history yet dont say what it was. Are you refereing to an incident about GZ pushing an undercover policemen at a bar who was giving his GF a hard time?
        As far as GZs actions that night, GZ DID wait for the police and GZ DID have the training neccessary for his actions.
        You say that Martin was wrongfully shot! You dont know that, he could have very well been rightly shot.
        Lastly, you question GZs motives for being a watchman. I suppose his work as a mentor to black youths, protest organizer for black causes and tsetimonies in court on behalf of a homeless black man carries much weight?

        Respectfully,

      • jack_sprat2

        As regards any police attempt to order compliance over the phone, such would be binding on NO ONE, not even a subordinate officer in the same force, even in line of command. The general rule is that the senior command officer PRESENT is in authority. A patrolman on the scene outranks a Chief at his desk.

      • K.

        …which is what I said I suspected. Are you clarifying?

      • maxtormaxtor .

        Thank you for your post. Something to also consider is that Zimmerman was the watchman that read and possessed the NW program materials given them by the Sanford PD.
        Those pamphlets told the NW to call 911 in emergencies and to call the non emergency number for general concerns and suspicious activities. Zim had called both numbers in the past and doner so within context. Zim called the non emergency number about Martin.
        As an aside, those NW pamphlets said that it is up to the watchman to determeine what is suspicious or not. The watchman is the absolute barer of of definitions as to what is suspicious.
        Among the pages of the pamphlets it describes what a suspicious person ‘could’ look like;

        Out at night.
        Wearing gang attire.
        Having no apparent destination.
        Teenagers.
        Running away.
        etc.

        The materials also says that the watchman will be wrong about their suspicions many times but to call the PD just to be safe.

        The more one knows the specific facts about this case the more Zimmerman acted consistantly with being a watchman and volunteer.

        Respectfully,

      • Albert8184

        If you have the truth on your side, why do you need to exaggerate and create some wrongdoing where there is none?

        At least get the facts straight. Can you do that much? At least listen to the trial or read the transcripts.

      • jack_sprat2

        However much you might think it should be as you say, that’s not the law. Nor should you wish it be otherwise. When I was a young lad, more than once I was followed by one or more young black males in the streets, even as I crossed to the other side or turned corners. How many of them, in your view, did I have the right to waylay and beat down?

        In the Detroit area, this was once a widely played ‘game’, just as was (and is) the ‘knock-out game’. Is this only ‘innocent fun’ when it’s the black guys who are doing the following? Why is it that white people who are the prey animals in such situations are not infrequently accused of ‘racism’, merely for acknowledging a universal dread, yet are accused of ‘profiling’ when the shoe is on the other foot?

      • maxtormaxtor .

        JHL1986,
        Thank you for your post. Respectfully, Zimmerman not only had a right to get out of his truck as to maintain the whereabouts of someone suspicious to him but he had the the duty to do so as a citizen and as a watchman for the neighborhood.
        To say that Zimmerman “followed” Martin is disingenous as it implies an attempt to overcome Martin or other nefarious reasons.
        All of the evidence, testimoney and PD audio recordings suggest only an attempt to assertain and maintain Martins whereabouts until PD arrived.
        Lastly, the civilian PD dispatcher had no authority to instruct Zimmerman to do anything.
        Zimmerman has the right to drive around, get out of his vehicle and walk around and look at anyone he wishes to.

        Respectfully,

      • Albert8184

        There was an eyewitness. He’s just ignored.

      • K.

        You are right–there was a witness who was called to the stand. I don’t consider him “ignored” though…because he gave testimony.

      • Albert8184

        His testimony has been ignored by the MSM and the race sycophants

      • jack_sprat2

        Neither the rabble, nor those rousing them, care to consider that evidence.

        Few of those, who hold strong opinions about this case, desired to know the truth. They came to it with axes sharpened, ready to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of (race) war.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        K, thank yoiu for your post. Yet I am compelled to point out that while you believe Zimmerman to be guilty, you don’t actually cite what he’s guilty of!
        What you are offeeering is a logical fallacy called ‘affirming the consequent’.
        In short, what you are claiming is; ‘Since Martin is dead, thus Zimmerman is guilty’. For yoiur claim mto be valid you would have to offer an element outside the statement itself. Exactly what was Zimmerman guilty of?
        There is no evidence, testimonoey or proofs that Zimmerman did anything other than run to a point to where he last saw Martin just to see where he went.
        Nothing more.

        Respectfully,

      • K.

        Ah, but I don’t think I did say I thought Zimmerman was guilty. I said I thought he wasn’t innocent. And I do believe that he assumes moral culpability in the situation—which is not the same as looking at the case in terms of its legality.

        Maybe I’m confused, but I seem to remember that there WAS evidence presented to suggest that Zimmerman did not just run to a point where he last saw Martin to see where he went. I seem to remember that police reports recorded evidence of a physical altercation between the two.

        And there was the whole issue that Zimmerman was on trial in the first place for shooting Trayvon Martin, which suggests he didn’t just peacefully observe the kid.

        Oh right, that.

    • Timothy Carignan

      Seems to me that George Zimmerman got attacked by a drug addict with a history of violence. Trayvon got what was coming to him, and before you even try it – it had nothing to do with his skin color; it had to do with his violent actions.

        Funny how his actions weren’t violent at all until stalked in the dark by an armed man he didn’t know…

      • maxtormaxtor .

        Alanna, as an aside do you know that Martin followed Zimmerman for a longer distance than Zimmerman followed Martin? Even the prosecution admits this fact which was substantiated by the clubhouse videotape. This in itself doesnt prove anyones guilt or innocense but is an interesting fact left out by the media.

        Respectfully,

        Since when did smoking a little weed make someone a drug addict? OMG, this means EVERYONE I went to high school was a drug addict. Also, how was Trayvon Martin not standing HIS ground against some loser racist vigilante who was following him? nice that you brought your little cronies to like your post. Trolling for George Zimmerman articles must make up a big part of your sad, pathetic existence there cupcake.

      DMX should know better. Yes, I am sure he will give Zimmerman what he has coming but he will also give him what he wants, for him to become a celebrity. Its disgusting. That awful human being should be in prison, but since he isn’t, he should be shunned and ignored.

      • Robotic Arms Dealer

        DMX is a drugged out hollow shell of his former self.

        I still hope he pees on and kills zimmerman

      • jack_sprat2

        DMX had 15,000 competitors for this ‘honor’. Shoot, this was a permanent ‘Stay in the Closet Free’ card for every gay rapper in the game. That’s at least 12,000 right there. LOL

      • reamurph

        He can share a cell with DMX who is a real POS as well

    • pineapplegrasss

      Oh this still just breaks my heart. I cried and cried for Trayvon and his family. 17 is still just a child. And bullshit that GZ didn’t know he was a kid once he was face to face with him. Why is it ok for a grown ass man to follow and confront anybody based off of nothing. Nothing. He was walking. That’s it. And a child no less. Idk how injured GZ really was, but he started a fight and was loosing so he shot somebody’s child? And then got away with it for ‘Stand your ground?’ Where’s Trayvon’s stand your ground? Where’s his right to live? Trayvon had to be scared out of his mind with that creepy guy following him in the dark through an unknown housing complex. I feel so bad for him, how the last few minutes of his life were filled with uncertainty and fear. And then his dad had to go looking for him bc he never came back and had to discover his son was murdered. So tragic.
      I know this post is about celebrity boxing match, so I hope he gets his ass smeared. But, unlike with poor Trayvon shot out in the dark on a rainy night, there will be referees and stuff to protect GZ

      When a violent negro thug is bashing your head against a concrete sidewalk, screaming at you that you are going to die tonight (after referring to you as a “cracker” which of course is not a racial epithet for golly’s sake because as everyone knows, negros are incapable of racism *cough* *cough*), you must always ask for ID to make sure your enraged, negro thug attacker is at least 18 years of age before you pump a piece of hot lead into said enraged, murderous negro’s chest.

      To do anything less is to be an evil racist child-killer. Oh, and I’m the Tooth Fairy. LOL

      • Gangle

        When, as an adult, you decide to get out of your car, armed with a gun, to follow and harass a lone, unarmed teenage kid – against direct police orders, threaten that kid with violence and then shoot that kid to death I will always judge that enraged, murderous adult.
        When that same murderous adult who shot to death an unarmed kid also threatens two unarmed women who are part of his family with a gun, I think it is time for you to stop defending him.

      • AlbinoWino

        Way to ratchet up the race related hatred. Please, tell us more about the plight of white men in this cruel America that has disenfranchised them and made them second citizens for centuries. I shed a tear for you, sir. Surely your struggle is felt by many. My only hope is that you understand sarcasm and die sooner to spare us from your idiotic thoughts.

    • keelhaulrose

      If I remember correctly Zimmerman’s defense was that he was too weak to physically defend himself against Trayvon? And now he’s going to box someone even bigger than that? He’s going for a gold medal in the asshole Olympics, isn’t he?
      Only in America is this worthy of celebrity status.

      • jack_sprat2

        You do not remember correctly, or you were “misinformed” by lying actors in the media. Once knocked to the ground, straddled, and used as a brain-filled pinata, a significant physical ADVANTAGE may be required to prevent serious injury or death. That fact was central to the defense, not your argument.

        As for Zimmerman now, he’s had some two years of intensive martial arts training, in the interim. (A logical path of action, given how many violent threats have been made against him.)

        As for our celebrity ‘culture’, this is par for the course. He’s surely no more an asshole than is Donald Trump.

      • Mystik Spiral

        Donald Trump is like King Of The Assholes, so I’m not really sure what your point is…

    • manosteel

      90% of murders in Chicago are committed by blacks. Happy black history month.

      • AlbinoWino

        And this relates to the story of Trayvon Martin how? Go be racist somewhere else, bigot. I’m sure you lead a hateful, meaningless life. Surely, we all just needed you to come here and teach us a lesson. My only hope is that you are sterile and never reproduce.

    • Albert8184

      The celebrity who got killed would have turned 19 in prison, likely doing time for assault and battery with intent to kill, had George not popped him.

      Two thugs with a propensity for violence had a run in one night, and it ended the way it usually ends.

      • AlbinoWino

        Uh…..are you familiar with George Zimmerman’s criminal history? He committed crimes before AND after he murdered an unarmed teenager. Man, you trolls really don’t have much of a life, do you?

      • Albert8184

        Yeah. I’m familiar with BOTH of their criminal histories. Do they BOTH matter to you? So, you are against the concept of self defense? Like, if a white teenager attacked an unarmed black man, you wouldn’t approve of the man shooting the teenager? He should just take the beating? Why are you biased?

      • AlbinoWino

        Uh….what was Trayvon’s criminal history? If the black man was unarmed, why would he be shooting the teenager. Your flipping the script doesn’t make any sense. You’re doing this wrong.

      • Albert8184

        How come you’re talking about this subject if you don’t know the whole story? I’m doing NOTHING wrong except refusing to walk down Stupid Street with you. Fake being objective some time. You’ll amaze people.

        Flipping the script my Arse. You’re on crack.

    • http://wtfihaveakid.blogspot.ca/ jendra_berri

      This is one of the most offensive things I’ve read in a long time. If someone murdered my son, got off, and did celebrity boxing, I have no idea how I would face life without constant aching anger.
      Zimmerman is a racist pile of shit. The only reason I could even see DMX doing this is for the opportunity to punch this asshole in the face.

      • jack_sprat2

        Zimmerman may well be a “racist pile of shit.” Which part of him, do you suppose? The Amerindian, perhaps? Or, the Afro-Peruvian?

        Why am I 100% certain that you consider that brown man ‘white’? LOL

        Must be the NEW ‘One Drop Rule’, huh?

      • pineapplegrasss

        you don’t have to be white (Caucasian) to be a racist. And GZ did look at that black kid and say he was up to no good based on his appearance alone.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        Pinapplegrass, thanks for your post. Listen to the audio tape to the PD by Zimmerman and Zimmerman clearly spells out why he deems Martin as suspicious. Martins race and manner of dress was illicited from Zimmerman by the dispatcher and wasnt offered.
        Teenagers walking around in the dark in between buildings at night with no apparent destination is well within the accepted envelope of what may be considered as suspicious.
        Lastly, Zimmerman has the right to be suspicious of anyone for anything without cause or justification, just like you or I when we are out at night alone.

        Respectfully,

      • pineapplegrasss

        I followed the story. I will never think that’s its ok that GZ shot and killed Trayvon. In the end of all of the suspiciousness, and phone calls to 911, and following etc. the kid was really just walking back to his dads house from the corner store talking on the phone with his girlfriend. Yes, GM did profile him, yes the dispatcher asked for a description. He killed that kid bc he started a fight and then was losing? He made a lot of bad decisions that night and then killed someone. Not ok.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        Pineapplegrass, thank you for your kind reply. Let me respond to some of your statements here. For instance;

        Zimmerman didnt call 911, he called the non emergency number(which has much relevance).

        You say that Martin was “just walking back to his dads house”.
        You dont know that, I myself wouldnt assume that a 17 year old that had been in various troubles, kicked out of school, shuffled between parents, smoked pot etc would be exempted from looking for oppurtunities for theft in his fathers neighborhood.

        There is no evidence that GZ profiled Martin. And even if he did he has that right and that duty. A watchman or anyone else has the right to observe others and assess their threat using any criteria that they wish to use.

        There is no evidence as to who started the fight.

        You say that GZ made a lot of bad decisions? What were they? Remember, GZ wasnt privy to future outcomes like we have in retrospect. Also consider that the duties and actions of a watchman are not the same as other citizens.

        Respectfully,

      • pineapplegrasss

        You can’t tell he’s a troubled kid by looking at him, and walking is not a crime, even if you take the long way around. GZ never said he saw Trayvon do anything suspicious that warranted the suspicion that he was a burglar, like look in house windows or something. And yes he was an unfamiliar face bc he was actually at his dads friends house watching a basketball game I believe. So, he did profile him or he wouldn’t have been following him to begin with. And whether that was a right decision or wrong decision based on night watchman code I don’t know. But if hes not acting like a burglar, then what is the threat? This is where the assumptions of race being the threat come into play. I’ll leave that part out, as I have no clue what was in GZ mind. But as a watchman, who is still just a citizen in that capacity, your job is to watch and report suspicious behavior, and let the trained law enforcement personnel do their job. And my understanding is that he wasn’t even on duty, he was on his way to Target. So, he put himself in the situation, by getting out of the truck and following Trayvon, of being in a fight that he thought he couldn’t win and pulled his gun. And shot a kid. And that kid died. For nothing.

    • necronnn99

      Sad how if the mother raise there kids right .. TM would be alive today. DAMN that must hurt.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        necronnn9, as a side topic isnt it interseting that parents of troubled youths dont ever pack up and move themselves and their children to some small town in Kansas with zero crime? No gangs etc.
        Its just odd that human nature keeps us where we are even if it destroys our children.
        Note to self” if your kid is running with the wrong crowd, doing dope, loitering etc., load up the U-Haul and move away from the elements that ruin your kids.
        Its tough to do.

        Respectfully,

      • AlbinoWino

        What does this have to do with anything? If this was such a horrid area, maybe Zimmerman should have got off his ass and moved. So Trayvon smoked some weed and wore a hoodie. You just described almost everyone I wen to high school with in an affluent white suburban area. I don’t think there’s much proof that Trayvon was menace to society. I know, seeing black people must just jog that assumption in your racist mind.

        Not respectfully.

      • maxtormaxtor .

        Wino, my statement just cited human nature and anyone that finds their children being exposed to criminal influences.

        Respectfully,

      Why dont some of you read DMX’s bio. He is a big POS loser!

    • Momma425

      I feel bad for the family. Regardless of how you feel about the case, celebrity boxing on the night of your dead child’s birthday is really insensitive. Whoever planned this really did so in poor taste.

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      words cannot express how disgusting this man is.
