Big mob of Trayvon protesters ransack store

80 to 100 high school students demonstrating in support of Trayvon Martin ransacked a Walgreens store in Florida.
WPLG Local10.com reports from North Miami Beach, Florida, March 27, 2012, that the students conducted a “walkout” protest from North Miami Beach Senior High School, calling for the arrest of George Zimmerman, who had fatally shot Martin on the evening of Feb. 26 in a gated community in Sanford, FL. Claiming self-defense in the shooting, Zimmerman has not been charged, but the incident is under investigation by both Sanford police and the FBI.
Minutes after walking out of their school Friday, a large group of students walked through the streets of North Miami Beach. Along the way, they stopped at a Walgreens at 163rd Street and 15th Avenue at about 10:40 a.m.
Surveillance video shows dozens of teenagers running through the store. Police said about 80 to 100 students stormed in, ransacking the shelves, before the school’s vice principal ordered everyone outside.
North Miami Beach police said students damaged items worth about $150. No injuries were reported.
Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said, “We do not accept any type of violation on the part of our students. There ought to be consequences, and we’ll be collaborating with whatever law enforcement entity is investigating that issue.” The School Board said the students involved could be prosecuted and face disciplinary action at the school.
Student Jenny Sincere said, “I don’t think they were doing it, like, to be malicious or whatever. They were just in the moment where they weren’t really thinking right because they were so angry.”
Another student Eric On-Sang said, “It showed bad character because that’s not what we were out there for. A few just made us look really bad.”
Some students admitted Tuesday to being part of the rampage. One student said, “I’m not going to lie. I was one of the people that was pushing in there because I was mad.” When asked whether the incident may have hurt their cause, student Christopher Paul said, “Yeah, it kind of did, yeah. I was just angry. I don’t know what the rest of them were doing. I was just trying to make a point for Trayvon. That’s it.”
Police said some of the students dropped their IDs on the way out of the store, so investigators have an idea of who was inside.

So, if you’re mad or angry, then it’s OK to destroy someone else’s property? These narcissistic students are the products of an indulgent society. To top it off, they’re also stupid, having dropped their IDs on the way out of the store.
And who stoked the anger of the students?
Race hustlers like Jesse Jackson who calls Trayvon a “martyr” (martyr to what?) and declares “blacks are under attack”; and Barack Obama who adds fuel to the fire by saying “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
Imagine the outrage if, say, Pres. George W. Bush had said that about the white victim of a black shooting.

Why aren't the race hustlers in Chicago?

Aliyah Shell killed while she played on her front porch.

Shooting death of 6–year-old girl punctuates lethal Chicago weekend

‘She didn’t deserve this,’ mother says; 49 people are shot citywide, 10 fatally

Chicago Tribune (March 20):  Diana Aguilar was distraught with grief Monday as she sat in the purple-and-pink bedroom of her 6-year-old daughter, gripping photos of her “baby.”
Two days earlier, on a sunny afternoon more like a June day, Aliyah Shell was sitting between her mother’s legs on the family’s Little Village front porch as Aguilar untangled her hair. The family had a friend’s birthday party to attend.
Suddenly, shots rang out from a pickup truck. Aguilar said she knocked her 2-year-old daughter on her back and hugged Aliyah tightly. But Aliyah was shot several times and died that afternoon at a hospital.
“She didn’t deserve this,” the mother repeated over and over again Monday as she sat on her daughter’s bed, which was covered with bright balloons, stuffed animals and family photos. “They’re not people. They’re animals for doing this to my baby. A person with a heart would never do this, so they’re not people.”
Aliyah’s shooting was the most shocking of a particularly violent weekend in Chicago. According to an analysis by the Tribune, 49 people were shot — 10 of them fatally — from late Friday afternoon through early Monday, mostly on the South and Southwest sides. Chicago police, excluding Monday morning from the calculation, said nine homicides took place over the weekend.
The deadly weekend continues a violent start to 2012. From Jan. 1 through Sunday, homicides soared 42 percent, to 94 from 66 a year earlier, according to a police spokeswoman. So far in 2012, nonfatal shootings rose to 408, up from 296 a year earlier, a 38 percent jump, she said. That continues a troubling trend that started in the last quarter of 2011. Police say gangs are to blame for much of the violence, including Aliyah’s killing.
Prosecutors identified both suspects as Latin Kings street gang members who were looking to shoot rivals from the Two-Six gang. Luis Hernandez, who allegedly goes by the nickname “Murder,” admitted in a statement to police that he saw the children on the porch before he opened fire, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Peter O’Mara.
Others killed during the violence:

  • Joel Sanroman, 42, shot in the head early Saturday as he drove in the 3100 block of West 53rd Street in the Gage Park neighborhood.
  • Adrian Cruz, 24, shot multiple times around 7 p.m. Saturday while standing in the 5900 block of South Fairfield Avenue in Chicago Lawn.
  • Vincent Fitts, 22, found shot in the head at 7:50 p.m. Saturday near 79th and Cottage Grove Avenue.
  • Jeremy Anthony, 24, who police believe drove himself to the University of Chicago Medical Center after being shot in the back while sitting in his car in the 6300 block of South Ellis Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood.
  • Bert Lindsey, 36, killed early Sunday from shots fired from a passing vehicle into a backyard party in the 7500 block of South Wolcott Avenue in Auburn-Gresham.
  • Equilla Coleman, 24, and two others were found shot early Sunday in the 1400 block of West 53rd after police nearby heard gunfire and found them with gunshot wounds.
  • Anthony Scott, 19, died Sunday — two days after he was shot in the 6300 block of North Oakley Avenue by a man who called him over to his vehicle.
  • George Marrero, 27, was killed at 10:50 p.m. Sunday during a gang-related drive-by shooting in the 1300 block of North Harding Avenue.
  • An unidentified 34-year-old man was shot multiple times in the chest about 1:35 a.m. Monday. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he later died.

Why aren’t Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the New Black Panthers (NBP) in Chicago going after these Hispanics that are killing so many people? Why aren’t the NBP in the streets of Chicago seeking justice for so many innocent people shot and killed? 
It’s tough to care for your fellow mankind when you are blinded by a racial political agenda.

Florida Trayvon shooting – Racist or Race hustling?

Race hustler:
A term coined to describe those individuals of a particular race who project themselves into the media spotlight as spokespersons whenever there is an alledged racial incident which involves their race. The use of the word “Hustler”, included as a part of the term, also implies that these individuals expliot a racial situation to serve their own interests.

Trayvon Martin (l); George Zimmerman (r)

The Incident:

George Zimmerman, 28, Latino-white mixed race, shot to death an unarmed black male Trayvon Martin, 17.

Date:

Evening of February 26, 2012.

Place:

The Retreat at Twin Lakes, a recently-built electronic-gated private community of condos and townhouses in Sanford, Florida. The community reportedly experienced numerous instances of burglary, theft, and one shooting during the previous year, with 402 calls made to the police.

What happened:

Martin was walking to the home of his father’s girlfriend from a convenience store. Zimmerman followed him, after calling the Sanford Police Department’s non-emergency number at 7 p.m., saying he witnessed what he described as “suspicious” behavior — of a man “just walking around slowly looking at houses” in the rain with his hand in his waistband and holding something in his other hand . The police dispatcher tape recorded Zimmerman saying, “This guy looks like he is up to no good. He is on drugs or something.”
The dispatcher recommended that he not take any action, and informed him that police were on the way. Zimmerman reported that Martin had started running. The dispatcher asked him if he was in pursuit and he affirmed that he was. The dispatcher informed him that pursuit was not necessary, saying “We don’t need you to do that.” Zimmerman affirmed “OK” and made arrangements to meet with police when they arrived.
Soon afterward, Zimmerman fatally shot Martin.
When the police arrived, they reported finding Martin face-down and unresponsive, with a gunshot wound in the chest. The police report states that they attempted CPR, paramedics arrived and continued CPR, finally declaring him dead at 7:30 p.m.
Invoking Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, Zimmerman described the shooting to the police who arrived on the scene as self-defense, telling police he had stepped out of his truck to check the name of the street he was on, when Martin attacked him from behind as he walked back to his truck. Zimmerman said he fired the semiautomatic handgun because he feared for his life.
But Martin was unarmed, and was carrying a bag of Skittles candy and a can of Arizona brand iced tea.
Statements by the police say Zimmerman had grass on his back and his back was wet. Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and the back of the head; subsequently his lawyer stated that Zimmerman’s nose was broken. However, the police report does not indicate that Zimmerman required medical attention.
The police took Martin’s body and stored it in a morgue, calling him “John Doe”. The morning after the incident, Trayvon Martin’s father Tracy called missing persons and the police to report his son as missing. Officers were dispatched to the home, where they showed the father a crime scene photograph of Martin for identification purposes.
The responding officers did not arrest Zimmerman, saying on March 12 that they did not find evidence to contradict his claim of self-defense. Sanford police chief Bill Lee stated, “Mr. Zimmerman was not acting outside the legal boundaries of Florida Statute by carrying his weapon when this incident occurred.”

Trayvon Martin:

  • 17 years old; 6″ 3″; 140 lb.
  • Parents are divorced; Trayvon lived with mother; was visiting his father at father’s fiancee’s rented townhome in Sanford.
  • Had no criminal record , but had just been suspended from school for 10 days for being “late too many times,” according to Trayvon’s English teacher Michelle Kypriss. According to Trayvon’s father, the suspension was because Trayvon was “in an unauthorized area on school property.” Father gave no additional clarifying details.
  • Update (Mar. 27): New information has emerged that paints quite a different picture of Trayvon:
  • He’s been suspended from school three times.
  • He was on suspension when he was shot in February, after officials caught him with a ‘marijuana pipe’ and a baggie with drug residue.
  • Martin was kicked out of school in October for graffiti after he was allegedly caught with a ‘burglary tool’ and a bag full of women’s jewelry.

George Zimmerman:

  • 28 years old; 5′ 9″; 250 lb; married; a registered Democrat and self-identified “Hispanic American”.
  • Son of a Peruvian immigrant mother and a physician and U.S. military veteran father.
  • Licensed to carry a firearm.
  • Respects and admires law enforcement officers and aspires to be one. In 2008, Zimmerman enrolled in the 4-month Seminole County Sheriff’s Office citizens’ law-enforcement academy.In 2009, he re-enrolled in Seminole State College and was working toward an associate degree with the goal of becoming a police officer. Seminole State College withdrew Zimmerman’s enrollment because of the shooting controversy.
  • Criminal record: Zimmerman clearly is a pugnacious man. He was charged in 2005 of “resisting arrest with violence and battery on an officer” while interfering with the arrest of a friend. Zimmerman entered a pretrial diversion program, so the charge of resisting arrest is not considered a conviction on his criminal record. Zimmerman was accused of domestic violence by an ex-fiancee who filed for a restraining order against him. Zimmerman counter-filed for a restraining order. A judge eventually ordered them both to stay away from each other for at least one year.
  • A vigilant crime watcher: Zimmerman was chosen as a watch coordinator by his neighbors.Some neighbors call him “strict” while others say he’s “normal,” “helpful” and “passionate about neighborhood security”, having thwarted a previous burglary attempt. According to the Miami Herald, Zimmerman had placed 46 calls to the police since the beginning of 2011, “to report disturbances, break-ins, windows left open and other incidents; nine of those times, he saw someone or something suspicious”.
  • His father said that, in the wake of the controversy, George Zimmerman has received death threats, disconnected his phones, and moved out of his home. Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee said Zimmerman had cooperated with investigators. Zimmerman eventually retained an attorney by March 24.

Disputed cell phone calls:

Both Martin and Zimmerman made phone calls during the incident, some of which were recorded. Recordings of 8 calls to the police made on the night of the shooting were released by the Sanford police on March 17, 2012.

  • Early press reports incorrectly indicated that the recordings included the sound of a single shot followed by a voice pleading or begging for help, and then a second shot is heard, after which the voice immediately stopped. Later reports indicate that gun was fired only once. Zimmerman told police at the scene that he was the one crying out for help.
  • According to phone records provided by T-Mobile,Martin was speaking on a cell phone to his girlfriend at the time of the incident. She was interviewed by an attorney, who has made a statement. According to the girl, Martin expressed concern about a “strange man” following him, and she advised him to run. She claims to have heard Martin say “What are you following me for?” followed by a man’s voice responding “What are you doing here?” She said that she heard the sound of pushing and that Martin’s headset suddenly went silent, leading her to believe that he had been knocked down. She attempted to call him back immediately, but was unable to reach him.
  • A portion of what Zimmerman said in the call to police is disputed. Some have suggested the disputed words were “fucking coons”, an ethnic slur used against black people, while others suggest it was “clueless”, “course”, or “punks”. Joe Oliver, a Zimmerman family friend, claimed he heard the word “goon”.

Contradictory witnesses:

  • An eyewitness to the physical altercation just prior to the shooting stated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman and beating him up, while the older man yelled for help.
  • Another witness, who had only heard but not seen the events, believed Martin was the one calling for help, and claimed that the police tried to “correct” her into changing their assertion to Zimmerman as the one calling for help.
  • Yet another witness who also heard but did not see the events, Mary Cutcher, claimed that she believed the cry was from Martin and said that she did not believe that Zimmerman acted in self-defense, contending that she and her roommate heard Martin cry out, followed by a gunshot, whereupon they saw Zimmerman standing over his body.

How the shooting became a racist cause célèbre:

The shooting death of Trayvon Martin has ignited into a racial conflagration, with George Zimmerman and Sanford law enforcement being accused of racism. Zimmerman is accused of racially profiling Martin. Allegations were also made that the Sanford police were protecting Zimmerman.
Thousands of people attended rallies around the country to demand Zimmerman’s arrest,including a gathering on March 22 of civil rights leaders including Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, Dick Gregory, and others.
A petition by the left-wing Change.org has gathered more than 1.3 million signatures demanding Zimmerman’s arrest. The NAACP sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder stating that they “have no confidence that, absent federal oversight, the Sanford Police Department will devote the necessary degree of care to its investigation” and requesting that personnel be detailed to Sanford to review the case without bias.
Many people, from self-styled civil rights leaders to public officials, are piling on with incendiary comments and statements about the shooting. They include:

  • Al Sharpton, one of the most outspoken activists in the Martin case, has devoted entire hour of his MSNBC show “PoliticsNation” to coverage of the shooting and interviews with Martin’s parents. On March 22, he participated in a rally in Sanford, Florida with Martin’s family and friends. CNN’s media watchdog Howard Kurtz questions Sharpton’s role as both reporter and activist.
  • Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi vowed that no stone would be left unturned in finding justice in the Trayvon Martin killing case.
    She praised Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s decision to set up a task force to find the truth about what happened, and appointment of a replacement prosecutor for the case, Angela Corey.
  • Jesse Jackson, who called Trayvon a “martyr” and said “blacks are under attack.”
  • And Barack Obama, who on March 23, briefly addressed the Martin killing in response to a reporter’s question. Obama said, “Obviously, this is a tragedy. I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids…. If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Imagine if a white President had said that about a white victim of a black shooting!

The racist New Black Panther Party has offered a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman. On the steps of Sanford City Hall, New Black Panthers (NBP) handed out wanted dead or alive” fliers that had Zimmerman’s picture. When asked whether he was inciting violence, NBP leader Mikhail Muhammad replied defiantly saying: “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
The bounty announcement came moments after NBP members called for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture Zimmerman. Muhammad said members of his group would search for Zimmerman themselves in Maitland and Jacksonville — where Zimmerman had worked before the shooting.
Muhammad said the group’s national chairman, Dr. Malik Zulu Shabaz of Washington, D.C. is receiving donations from black entertainers and athletes.

Sanford police chief Bill Lee repeatedly defended the investigation, stating that the Sanford police did not feel they had conducted a racially biased investigation and welcomed a review of their efforts. Lee stated to reporters that they could not arrest Zimmerman because no evidence contradicted his story, and that to do so would leave them open to litigation. He also stated that though a 911 officer did instruct Zimmerman not to pursue Martin, those instructions are only recommendations that do not carry a legal obligation to comply with them.
Three out of the five members of the Sanford city commission, including the Mayor, passed a motion of no confidence in regards to Lee and his handling of the case. One member of the council, Mark McCarty, then asked for Lee to step down. On Mar 22, 2012, Lee announced publicly that he temporarily stepped down from his position as chief of police, stating “my involvement in this matter is overshadowing the process.”

Defense of Zimmerman

  • In an open letter, Zimmerman’s father, Dr. Robert Zimmerman, defended his son against allegations that his actions were racially motivated, stating that Zimmerman was part Hispanic (his mother is a Peruvian immigrant), was raised in a multi-racial family, and “would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever,” claiming that the portrayal of his son as a racist “could not be further from the truth.”
  • Zimmerman’s lawyer Craig Sooner stated that Zimmerman is not a racist, that he had mentored black youths in the past, and that only one side of the story is being told.
  • Zimmerman’s friend, Joe Oliver, 53, a former television news reporter, noted “I’m a black male and all that I know is that George has never given me any reason whatsoever to believe he has anything against people of color.” Oliver said it was Zimmerman’s voice on the 911 tape calling for help.
  • A new witness, known only as John, has come forth telling Sanford police that he saw Martin on top of Zimmerman shortly before the fatal shot.

Florida’s Stand Your Ground law:

Florida law, as of 2005, includes a “stand your ground” provision, under which a person can use deadly force if they reasonably believe it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm, in most circumstances. In many states, such laws protect people in their own homes, but Florida’s version extends the no-retreat premise to vehicles and public places.
Since its passage, shooting deaths with claims of self-defense have nearly tripled.Durell Peaden, a member of the Florida Senate until 2010 and one of the authors of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, said that based upon his understanding of what happened, Zimmerman should be prosecuted. According to Peaden, the law does not say that a person has a right to confront another. “The guy lost his defense right then,” said Peaden. “When [Zimmerman] said ‘I’m following him,’ he lost his defense.” But Zimmerman claimed that he was returning to his SUV when attacked, telling police he had stepped out of his truck to check the name of the street he was on, when Martin attacked him from behind as he walked back to his truck.

UPDATE:

Former NAACP leader and conservative black pastor C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.” Rev. Bryant said today in an interview with The Daily Call: “His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions.” Bryant, who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP, calls Jackson and Sharpton “race hustlers” who are “acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.”
