THE BIGGEST DEBUNK OF THE CASE.Originally Posted by TeeTop
SANFORD, Fla. -
The city of Sanford is preparing for the outcome of the special prosecutor's decision about George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin but has not been charged.
Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett said on Thursday that the city's emergency management team has met regularly with the U.S Department of Justice to construct a plan. Officials said extra police officers and fire department officials are on standby. Neighboring agencies have also been asked to assist, if needed.
Simultaneously, I believe Mr Zimmerman was attacked and defended himself.
I further believe that without the first pursuit the attack would not have occurred.
I am making these observations from the standpoint of a life associated with law enforcement running the gamut from city marshal to Interpol.
Zimmerman has "science on his side:"
That should settle it. Owen is the real deal. Check out his website:Though it was widely reported that George Zimmerman grumbled a racial slur before shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, his lawyers have insisted their client instead said "F---ing punks".
Now they seem to have science on their side. Renowned forensic audio expert Tom Owenanalyzed the 911 recording—which was fraught with cell phone interference—and told CNN that Zimmerman indeed whispered "punks" and not the racial slur that has caused so much controversy.
But is that enough for CNN?
CNN, however, is not convinced, stating that "Owen provided CNN with a copy of the newly processed audio" and that CNN "enhanced the sound of the 911 call, and several members of CNN's editorial staff repeatedly reviewed the tape but could reach no consensus on whether Zimmerman used a slur."
The facts are against them, whether it's the audio tapes, the timeline, the eyewitnesses, or the continuing stream of information coming out about Trayvon. But none of it seems to matter. The media wants this to be racism and they will make it be racism. Who controls the media? They're all on the same page here.
CNN is too invested in the "hate crime" meme to accept anything that doesn't support that theory.But is that enough for CNN?
CNN International is even more onside in it's coverage than it's parent network.
Based on other cases I have read about, I disagree with you but we'll see what happens.
Your opinion seems to be based on the idea that Zimmerman's 25 second foot pursuit was the first approach, the aggressive action that began the chain. But, if you notice in the tape transcript, Trayvon approached first: he spent over a solid minute approaching Zimmerman's vehicle, and Zimmerman is noticeably scared. If you want to decide who started the encounter, you can start at 0.58 seconds on the tape, when Zimmerman is in his car talking to the police and Trayvon begins his approach to Zimmerman's vehicle. Yes, Trayvon started running just after the 2 minute mark, but the aggressiveness began with him.
However, I agree with Odysseus that Stand Your Ground is not even necessary when someone is on top of you and bashing your head in.
If you were sitting in your car by the curb and I walked down the block I would be approaching you until I passed and then I would be going away. But any aggression you perceive would be just that – perception, not at all a confirmed reality.
Then, as a final part of my view, IMHO we will never see a reality based outcome. As the investigations continue those that do not find him guilty of murder will be written off as propaganda and racist. It will continue until he is found guilty or found dead in a back alley.
