    Fox News: Trayvon Would Be Alive If He Didn’t Have Street Attitude
    More dog whistles from Fox...

    On Tuesday afternoon, former New York City police detective Harry Houck told FoxNews.com that Trayvon Martin would still be alive today if he didn’t have “street attitude.”

    Houck was part of a FoxNews.com live panel discussion about George Zimmerman’s ongoing trial for the alleged second-degree murder of Martin. After co-panelist Tamara Holder (a criminal defense attorney) pointed out that the state’s prosecution will likely point out how Martin was only carrying a bag of candy and a can of iced tea at the time of his death, Houck responded that regardless of whether the selected jury is “impartial,” the seed will already have been planted that Martin was an innocent, unarmed teenager:

    “She was talking about the Skittles that he had, and the Coca-Cola that Trayvon Martin had. That doesn’t look good for the defense because he’s injecting something into their minds, like, this is a little kid with candy walking around the street. Listen, Trayvon Martin would be alive today if he didn’t have a street attitude. That’s the bottom line.”

    He was an innocent, unarmed teenager! Apparently 'street attitude' AKA 'walking around while black' carries the death penalty.
    Ummmm.......who's RACIST here? I think the one who thinks that only a black person can have a "street attitude".

    And Martin was an "innocent, unarmed teenager" just like Occupy Wall street were "peaceful protesters"-meaning you have to be deaf, blind and dumb to think so.

    5. fox playing to their audience. Shameful. A$$hole racist NRA & fox and repub./libertarian soundbytes.

    and Fox is looking to start a race war if there is a split jury or bad verdict.

    Plays right into the NRA soundbytes
    The only ones starting a race war are those that claim this is all about race when it isn't.

    13. There were photos in an earlier thread of jurors looking a Zimmerman as he came in. They

    did not look impressed. I don't think he's going to do as well as some think, again IMO..
    That's a new one. If jurors don't look "impressed" when a defendant walks in then they are going to convict him/her.?

    40. No. Vigilantes such as Zimmerman need to feel the fiercest effects of justice.

    Trayvon would be alive if he had simply gone home after he outran Zimmerman during Zimmerman's call to non-emergency dispatch. When that call ended, Zimmerman had no idea where Trayvon was, and it was dark, raining, and Zimmerman was in no shape to go searching for him.

    The only way Zimmerman could have seen Trayvon is if the teen had re-emerged and let Zimmerman know where he was. Had he just gone back to Brandy Green's house--which was close by--Zimmerman would never have seen him.

    Something just occurred to me: Why is it that liberals can claim that things that have absolutely nothing to do with race, like wanting lower taxes, opposition to state monopolies on medicine or belief in limited government are code words for racism, but words that are actually synonymous, like socialist, communist, Progressive and liberal cannot be used interchangeably?

    Why ask questions you already know the answer to?

    Of course they seem to miss a lot of facts in Moonbat land.

    Zimmerman is hispanic, not white; plus his grandmother was black.

    And its amazing that shooting someone who is pounding your head on the sidewalk is some how murder and beating someone to death because you think they're following you is some how self defense?

    I have watched the whole thing. This guy was a comedy writer for Bill Maher, but it's interesting how actually intelligent he is. He builds a good argument and demonstrates how what the academy calls "postmodernism" leads to an evil outcome.

    Edited to add: Any more from this guy?

    The guy who said that is a former or current police officer from New York. He doesn't work for Fox, he was on a guest panel. It perturbs me, but not surprised, that the DUmmies claim that it is "Faux News" fault that someone used that "dog whistle". It is complete BS.
