April 20, 2012 – (Updated at 11:26 pm) Are there any doubts about whether George Zimmerman got his ass kicked by Trayvon Martin? The above newly released photo tells the story and seems to back up Zimmerman’s statement that he was attacked and beaten by Trayvon Martin. Of course the lying media and all the race whores have distorted the facts and have created a different story. They have all but destroyed a man who is legally innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Yes he killed Martin, but he still has a right to a fair trial. By the way, as far as I am concerned, Zimmerman is guilty of killing Martin. I don’t need a jury to decide that part of the equation for me. They can determine his punishment.
The more facts that come to light about the Trayvon Martin case, the more it seems that the state has over charged George Zimmerman with the 2nd degree murder charge. I’m not an attorney, but it sure is looking like his charge maybe should have been manslaughter or something less than 2nd degree murder.
George Zimmerman should have left well enough alone after calling 911 that night. His stupid decision of following Trayvon Martin put all the wheels in motion that led to the death of another human. For that reason alone I believe he should be punished, but not for the charge of murder. Trayvon Martins own mother said on the Today show that she believed it was an accident. “I believe it was an accident. I believe it just got out of control and he couldn’t turn the clock back.” You can bet the Zimmerman defense team will have that statement in hand ready for the trial.
We all know Trayvon Martin was no saint. His well documented history as a trouble maker would probably have landed him in jail eventually, maybe even worse. But Martin is not on trial. He is dead. The fact remains though, that George Zimmerman got a bad rap from the media from day one. His ability to get a fair trial has been put in jeopardy by media liars and race whores. So it really doesn’t matter that Martin might have been an up and coming street thug, and I believe he was. I also believe that Martin attacked Zimmerman because he thought Zimmerman was a threat. I also believe that George Zimmerman shot and killed Martin because he felt his life was in danger. So maybe the mother was on the right track with her idea that it was an accident. Maybe in reality the evidence will determine that both Zimmerman and Martin acted in self defense, not knowing what the others intentions really were.
It doesn’t matter, the end result still rests on George Zimmerman’s shoulders … If only he had not followed Trayvon Martin that night.

April 11, 2012 – As I predicted, George Zimmerman charged with second degree murder in the killing of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.
Here is the official announcement letter from State Attorney Angela Corey
Read story here :Miami CBS Local
“It is the search for justice for Trayvon that has brought us to this moment,” Corey also had a message for those who have been rushing to judgment on the case.
“You cannot know what it’s like to launch this type of investigation and come to this conclusion,” State Attorney Angela Corey said during the press conference. ”We don’t prosecute by public pressure or petition. We prosecute cases on the relevant facts of each case and on the laws of the state of Florida.”

Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.
It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self-defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.
Corey told reporters Tuesday night that she would hold a news conference about the case within 72 hours. A news release from her office said the event will be held in Sanford or Jacksonville, Fla.
I can hardly wait to hear what charges will be brought against Zimmerman. My guess is 2nd degree murder, but there could be Federal charges also. One thing is certain…it’s going to be a very interesting trial. -JRoycroft
April 9, 2012 – The man at the center of the Trayvon Martin killing in Sanford, Florida, George Zimmerman breaks silence. by launching his own website over the weekend. http://therealgeorgezimmerman.com/Home_Page.php
He states: “I am the real George Zimmerman.”
“On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media
coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.”
Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Martin’s family, said they hope to see charges against Zimmerman as soon as possible.
“We were anticipating that there would be no grand jury, because the family has always been hopeful that there would just simply be an arrest,” Crump said. “We believed, from day one, that they had enough evidence to arrest the killer of Trayvon Martin and now, as the evidence has continued to unfold, we think there has been a plethora of evidence to
simply effect probable cause to do an arrest — not for a conviction, but for an arrest.”

April 5, 2012 - First it was NBC that admitted altering the 911 tape creating the impression that George Zimmerman was racially profiling when he reported to police that Trayvon Martin was acting suspicious. Then ABC reports that the police video of Zimmerman being escorted by police showed no evidence of injury to his head or face, even though police say otherwise. Oh but wait – ABC decides to enhance the police video and guess what… now the police video shows Zimmerman’s injuries. Today CNN comes forward and announces to the world that after enhancing the audio of Zimmerman’s 911 call, they now say he didn’t use a racial slur after all.
This was no accident folks. This was all planned by three major news networks to turn an American citizen into a “lying murdering racist” by intentionally manipulating police video and a police 911 tape in a very successful plot to create a race charged story that has destroyed any chances that George Zimmerman will get a fair trial. This is outrageous and should be criminal!
This the United States of America people! What the hell ever happened “with liberty and justice for all?” Here we have a man who has not been charged with any crime; has the national media trying to destroy him; has race whores Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton stirring up racial hatred in a community; and the Black Panther Nazi Party advertising a dead or alive bounty for his capture with zero consequences to any of their actions.
Regardless of the fact that George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman still has a right to a fair trial without all of the race baiting and negative influencing being done by ABC, NBC, CNN and other outside sources.
All this while Obama sits on his Marxist ass occupying our White House and turns his head as if everything is just fine and dandy. Never mind that Obama invites Al Sharpton to the White House for Easter Prayer breakfast.
I guess if it was ok for Dan Rather to tell a lie then it must certainly be ok with the rest of the liberal media to put a racist noose around an American citizen and lie about him too.

April 3, 2012 - Hours ago NBC apologized for making an editing “error” in the dialogue on the taped 911 call that George Zimmerman made the night he shot and killed Taryvon Martin.
NBC intentionally altered the 911 tape to create the impression that Zimmerman was highlighting the fact that Martin was black. This was an obvious effort on NBC’s part to add more attention to the racial aspect of the case.
Here is how the edited portion of the 911 conversation went as it was played on the NBC Today Show :
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
On the actual 911 tape, the dispatcher had prompted Zimmerman to identify Martin’s race :
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy – is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
NBC commented today, “During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret,” reads NBC’s statement. “We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.”
NBC and many other news agencies are, and have been guilty of manipulating the facts in their news stories in an effort to sensationalize the story. This seems to be the norm for journalists today. No longer can the public trust anything they read or hear from any news organization.
“If it bleeds it leads” is the rule of the day when it comes to news reporting.
Just recently the story of 13 year old Allen Goin, the kid who was burned when attacked by two individuals and set on fire was highly exaggerated. Nearly every news report had the young mans last name wrong, and even though they all had the police report, they still out right lied about the facts of the incident. One can only conclude that the media does this to boost ratings. I for one have zero respect or trust in anything reported by these pathetic and corrupt journalists.
When you folks read a story, take it with a grain of salt. Chances are the story has been modified to heighten ratings.
And for you bloggers out there that rely on Drudge or anyone reporting the news, take extra caution when using the story in your blog. Before you repeat someone else’s news story and pass it along as verified and factual, do your own research and even then proceed with caution.
Just because there are three big letters in front of a story (NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, CNN) means nothing when it comes to integrity in journalism. I believe those days are long gone. -JRoycroft

March 29,2012 - No comments from me today, just some interesting links to share.
Still taking a break from the media circus.
March 25, 2012 - Black racist leader of the new Black Panther Party announced on Saturday that he was issuing a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman. Mikhail Muhammad called on 5,000 black men to mobilize and capture the neighborhood watch volunteer.
Mikhail Muhammad is nothing more than another piece of human debris adding to the long list of race bating maggots that have turned a tragic event into a racial media circus in Sanford, Florida. This idiot and his mindless little followers are doing everything they can to insure that Zimmerman does not get a fair trial. These worthless little men grasp at any opportunity for media attention, because like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, they have nothing meaningful to offer to our society but hate filled rhetoric.
I fear that residents of Sanford should prepare themselves for the worst in the coming weeks. -JRoycroft
