The George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin Case

There is a lot of conjecture and bias, thanks to our mainstream media, about the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case.

This will probably be one of my shortest blogs, as I believe pictures are worth a 1000 words, particularly in this case.

But first a little bit of background including undisputed facts on both sides about the case.

George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch person, observed suspicious activity by Trayvon Martin.  George called the police, was asked by 911 where Travyon was heading, got out of his car so he could read a street sign with his flashlight.  He lost Trayvon and was then told by 911 there was no need to follow him.  George started to return to his car, only to be then attacked by Travyon. 

Treyvon punched George in the nose, got him on the ground, repeatedly punched him in the face before picking up his head and smashing it into the concrete.  At that point George drew his firearm and shot Treyvon.

An autopsy confirmed drugs (marijuana) in Trevyon's system as well as liver damage from a codeine based drink known as "Lean".  Commonly made with Arizona watermelon fruit juice, skittles and cough syrup.  The drink has been know to cause aggression and paranoia.


The media in the US, Australian and other countries deliberately chose to publish pictures of Trayvon taken approximately 5 years before the event.  They continue to post pictures of Trayvon of him when he was 12, rather than 17 years of age when he was considerably taller and larger than George Zimmerman.  

Two important questions our media need to answer.

1) Why didn't the Sydney Morning Herald post a current picture of Trayvon?
2) Why didn't they publish pictures of George after the alleged attack?

A verdict of NOT GUILTY was returned by a jury of 6.  Why would the jury not return a not guilty verdict if there was any evidence George was not acting in self defence?

Ask yourself....

Why does the media not want you to be able to defend your liberty as a law abiding good citizen?

Why is there so much news of violent crime on Australian news...but very little news of suspects caught?

How can a drug dealer illegally buy a handgun, but only be to be prosecuted with a $2800 fine with no conviction recorded? Story here...

Why does a man defending himself in his own home against four armed thugs get charged with manslaughter?  Story here...

Something is seriously wrong with Australia's justice system.

Jill Meagher would still be alive today if she had a conceal and carry permit and pistol to protect her liberty. 
Each year in the US 2,000,000 crimes are prevented by conceal and carry permit holders.  Only 1 in 1000 cases is a firearm discharged.
