Trayvon Martin, The Reverse O.J. Effect?

The shooting of Trayvon Martin took place on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was an African American teenager who was shot and killed by 28-year-old George Zimmerman, a man of mixed ethnicity (Latino and white American).[4][5][8][9][10][11] Martin, who was unarmed, had been walking to the home of his father’s girlfriend[12] from a convenience store when Zimmerman, a community watch captain,[13] followed him after calling the Sanford Police Department, saying he witnessed what he described as suspicious behavior.[14] Soon afterward, he fatally shot Martin.

Zimmerman described the shooting to the police who arrived on the scene as self-defense.[15][16] The responding officers did not arrest Zimmerman, saying on March 12 that they did not find evidence to contradict his assertion of self-defense.[17] Both Martin and Zimmerman made phone calls during the incident, some of which were recorded.

First and foremost, if you think that Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense, you are either retarded or racist, or potentially both.  I didn’t have to go to a fancy school to know that you can’t just shoot an unarmed person and claim self-defense.  Take race out of this for a second.  Some 250 lb. chubby nutbag running around with a loaded handgun following suspicious teens?  And what makes him suspicious in the first place?  A black kid in your gated community.

Trayvon Martin weighed 140 lbs.   I’m sorry but I can fuck up any 140 lb. 17 year old on the planet.  If you can’t, maybe you shouldn’t be the neighborhood watch commander, you fat fucking pussy.  Unless he’s Floyd Mayweather Jr., Zimmerman should be locked up for getting his ass kicked by a kid.

Then I saw someone post this today:

Got him.  He’s a thug!  Except 1) Who gives a shit what he’s doing in the picture; and 2) That’s not even him you racist piece of shit.  http://www.wtsp.com/news/article/247194/19/Fake-Trayvon-Martin-picture-circulates-on-the-web-image-actually-shows-a-different-person

I don’t even know why I’m talking about this anymore.  Imagine if we had Facebook 18 years ago.  The same people that are supporting Zimmerman are the same people who were outraged when O.J. was acquitted, and vice versa.  The supporters in support of Trayvon Martin want justice.  However, these are the same people who celebrated in the street when O.J. Simpson was acquitted for murder.   Similarly, the supporters for Zimmerman keep talking about our justice system, blah … blah … blah.  Except, these are the same people who were probably outraged by the O.J. Simpson verdict.  I guarantee they didn’t say “well O.J. was acquitted by a jury of his peers so he must be not guilty.”  Give me a fucking break.  If you say that race doesn’t matter, your fooling yourself.  Some things never change.

And get the fuck out of here with that neighborhood watch shit.  Neighborhood watch volunteers walk around with flashlights with reflective vests.  They don’t actually fight crime, they don’t carry loaded handguns and they SURE AS SHIT don’t shoot teenagers who are carrying iced tea and skittles.
