    Default Witness counters Trayvon Martin media narrative

    Just when the media had practically convicted George Zimmerman for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black teenager ... and just when the political left had nearly turned the tragedy into a surefire formula for energizing its political base and smearing its political enemies ... something happened.
    An eye witness stepped forward.

    I pray that the article is true, and that there is someone with enough integrity and courage to tell the truth. I am really happy to hear someone publicly call out the inciter in chief. Way to go Newt for saying what needs to be said, That our "fearless leader" ::sarcastic;: is divisive, inflammatory, and out of line.

    On a second note, I have no doubt in my mind that Martin was not the choir boy he is portrayed to be. We always remember the good about the deceased and never the bad. That being said could this have been avoided? Most likely.

    I know I will be watching this pretty closely to see how it plays out. I hope all parties involved take into consideration the only good thing the orator in chief had to say. That "All Americans have some soul searching to do".
    In the case of the investigators; that they have the backbone to let fact and not public opinion come out as the result of this.
    In the case of the lawmakers; that they see that our right to defend ourselves is tantamount to enacting feel good BS legislation that gives a criminal more right than his/her victims.
    And as for the rest of us; that our "Soul Searching" leads us to vote any Jack @$$ out of office who thinks that they alone are the savior of the us, and they know what's good for us the people!

    I know it's long but on an ironic note: did anyone else's browser bring up a "Front Sight" add with this article? I darn near fell out of my chair laughing when I clicked the link.

    Yep,just when they are about to lynch the shooter and some have put a price on his head.The real story starts coming out. Even the kids own father said it was not his sons voice yelling for help on the 911 tape.

    The new witness doesn't really say anything new, as far as want the news reports tells us. We already know that Martin got the upperhand on Zimmerman but we don't know is who made first contact. This is the important piece we need to know.

    Did Zimmerman scare Martin which caused Martin to defended himself from unlawful detention or did Martin attack Zimmerman when he was walking to his truck. The new witness just says he saw them fighting and that Zimmerman was on the ground. If someone was to trying to illegally detain me you can bet that I'm going to try to get the upper hand and have him on the ground.

    What's the "real story," exactly?

    How did TM come to be on top of GZ? We don't know.

    What happened between the end of TM's phone call with his girlfriend that got cut off just after GZ challenged TM, and the time GZwas on his back? We don't know.

    If GZ grabbed TM's arm or otherwise tried to restrain him, would TM have been within his rights to fight back or try to get away? Absolutely. GZ had no right to restrain anyone. But we don't know yet what happened other than a resident of a gated community shot and killed an unarmed guest of a resident of a gated community.

    This is HARDLY a NEW witness, he's was interviewed the night of the shooting and was interviewed by at least one news organization when the MSM started their lynch mom propaganda campaign. They just chose not to inform the public of this.

    Well now this puts a kink in all the emotional diatribe. More reason to convene a Grand Jury in Florida and to really test the 'stand your ground' law. IMHO - If your being beaten and are on your back on the ground, then whomever is straddling you and handing you your ass needs to be handed a piece of lead or two...irregardless of your own stupidity of putting yourself in that position to begin with.

    Please do not confuse the issues at hand with the facts. Sharpton and Obama never do.

    One thing we can count on is that Obama and the rest of the public-hungry blacks will do everything they can to stir up a race riot whether it is justified or not. Any US president worth his salt would have no comment on controversial matters of any kind that fall under state juristiction. This is just another way Obama is courting black voters. Obama will not stop until he has stripped all of each states' rights away from them, and he'll keep using any incident to further his cause.
