In all the hubbub surrounding the Trayvon Martin-George (Jorge?) Zimmerman brouhaha, there has been (to put it mildly) a lot of noise.
Reports, opinions, accusations, denials, threats – you name it, it’s out there.
I found the following (below the fold) on this thread here. And before NJ.com scrubs it, I’m presenting it here for you.
The commenter seems to have done a most impressive job of investigating.

SKITTLES, OMISSIONS, AND OUTRIGHT LIES
An Examination of the Trayvon Martin case
Like most people, I first came across this case watching the news in mid to early March. The narrative presented was, “innocent black child (Trayvon Martin) carrying only Skittles and an Ice Tea while walking home hunted down by white racist neighborhood watch leader (George Zimmerman), pleads for help and then is executed in cold blood”.
I was then told that the child was a “A / B student, who never got in trouble, who wanted to be an Aviator”. I was informed that the “White Racist Killer” was previously arrested.
I even saw the pictures of a cute little boy who was the victim, and then shown a mug shot of the heavy set man who executed him.
My first reaction was how terrible, but knowing our lazy liberal media, the story was just too one-sided, even for their standards. I then saw that the Race baiting Al Sharpton was getting involved, and for me, sent smoke signals that something just wasn’t right.
At that point, the liberal outlets like MSNBC, AP, CNN, NBC and others unleashed an all-out onslaught against George Zimmerman. Even our current president, Obama had to “stupidly” get involved. The politics and racialization of this incident has driven this story, more than the actual facts.
On the very first day at looking at this story, what obviously struck me was the mug shot of George Zimmerman. I was told that he was a “white racist”, but after looking at the picture, I was looking at a Hispanic male. Not that it mattered, but it started a trail of half-truths, mistruths, and omissions that have plagued this story.
Next, after being shown a picture of the Trayvon Martin, and being told he was a child, I naturally thought, like most people who got sucked into this story, that he was about 10 to 12 years old. When I found out that he was 17, I started to feel really misled.
As the days proceeded, the race baiting Martin camp would release a new revelation every night. Each and every bit of information that they would present turns of to be completely false or misrepresented.
Many who have been on NJ.com have seen my “Facts” post. This is a compilation of facts that were never presented to the public, however, all of these facts were public information and available for the liberal media to present. They chose not to present it. So outlets like MSNBC, CNN, AP, and the rest of the liberal media have decided to present a ONE-SIDED representation of this story. You may want to ask why…
I am now presenting a new list. This is a list of all the false information that has been presented by the Martin camp, and NOT challenged by the Liberal media. In fact, they promoted this false information.
The goal of this list is for you the reader, to understand how you have been manipulated by a corrupt group of media, race baiters and politicians. If you show any sign of intelligence, you might want to stop and question anything these people ever say again.
You also rethink of voting for politicians who jumped into this fray – like OBAMA!!!
Here is the list. Each item is sourced. If you can challenge anything that I have listed, please do so…
1) Why did they lie to you by portraying that Martin was a Child?
FACT: Martin was 17 years old, a high school Junior.
2) Why did they continue to paint the picture that Martin was a child by showing 5 to 10 year old pictures?
FACT: More recent pictures of the 6’3” Martin show him with Gold teeth and many tattoos. These pictures have been available to the media, so why did they continue to show pictures of Martin as a little child?
3) Why did they say that Martin did NOTHING wrong, but carry “Skittles and an Ice tea”?
FACT: “Nothing wrong” means NOTHING. However, not once in the early stages of this story did they mention a fight. Martin’s father and all the race baiters knew about the facts surrounding Zimmerman’s defense and the eyewitness statements that Martin was hitting Zimmerman. How do we know that, because Martin’s father recently disclosed that the Police provided him the entire details of their investigation, which included that Martin had struck Zimmerman. Again, why did they not reveal that very important part of the story?
4) Why did they lie that it was Trayvon Martin screaming?
FACT: After the 911 tapes were released, some of the tapes caught the screams of someone yelling help. Team Trayvon was quick to claim the screams were of Trayvon. They eve trotted out Trayvon’s mother to say that was her son’s voice. Further, they trotted out a “Witness” who claimed that the voice was the “child” who was screaming. As it turns out, that witness did NOT see anything, she just heard it assumed that it was the voice of a child. Again, not realizing that Trayvon Martin was a young adult and not realizing that Zimmerman had a high pitched voice.
5) Why did they lie that Zimmerman fired two shots?
FACT: This is another interesting part to this case. According to Team Trayvon, they floated the story that Zimmerman hunted down Trayvon, and fired a warning shot which made poor Trayvon stop. Now while at gun point, Trayvon was pleading for help. At that point, Zimmerman fired a second shot, thus executing Trayvon. This fallacy was quickly quelled when the police reported that tests conclusively showed that only one bullet was fired.
6) Why did they lie that all the witnesses complained that the police changed their statements?
FACT: There were 5 witnesses who came forward and made statements the night of the shooting. All the witnesses corroborated Zimmerman’s story the night of the shooting. Some of those witnesses saw more than others, some didn’t see anything. Only two were eyewitnesses, with one being the person who was witnessed the most and was the closest to the incident. His story has NOT changed one iota, and completely finds Zimmerman innocent. One witness has changed her story. See item 7.
7) Why did they lie when they brought forward a “witness” Mary Cutcher who claimed that Trayvon was the person screaming help.
FACT: team Trayvon trotted out Ms. Cutcher during one of their many press conferences. Ms. Cutcher claimed that the police “Blew off” her statements. The truth came out about Ms. Cutcher that she never saw ANYTHING. In her own words, she never saw any part of the incident. She only thought that because the screams she thought were coming from a “CHILD”? Ms. Cutcher, further claimed that she “KNEW this was not self-defense. There was no punching, no hitting going on at the time, no wrestling… it’s no excuse to kill an unarmed teenager who is half his size.”. I remind you that according to her own statements, she never saw anything!!! If she didn’t see anything, why would she claim that Trayvon was half the size of Zimmerman, which was untrue. This is why the police discounted her statement.
8. Why did they lie that the Zimmerman was twice the size of Martin?
FACT: George Zimmerman was a 28 years old, 5’9″ and 170 lbs. Trayvon Martin was 17 years old, 6’3″ and 160 lbs. They were using the photo imagery to paint this narrative. Again, completely false!!!
9) Why did they say that Trayvon was a “A” student that never got into trouble at school?
FACT: Trayvon Martin had been suspended three times in this school year alone. The last suspension, which is the reason he was visiting his father, was for 10 days. He was suspended from school in October in an incident in which he was found in possession of women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that a schools security staffer described as a “burglary tool”. So much for the “A” student that never got in trouble…
10) Why did they lie that Zimmerman stalked down Martin, and while Martin was pleading for his life, Zimmerman shot him in cold blood?
FACT: Two eyewitnesses reported that the person screaming for their life was MAN wearing a RED top. And that he was being assaulted. The person heard screaming for his life was George Zimmerman because he was the one wearing a RED sweatshirt.
11) Why did they not report that Trayvon’s girlfriend has not cooperated with the Police Investigation?
FACT: As of this writing, Trayvon’s girlfriend continues to refuse to cooperate with Police. Only Team Trayvon and their one-sided representation of what she told them was reported.
12) Why did they lie that Zimmerman was on Patrol when he wasn’t?
FACT: Zimmerman was running a personal errand the night of the incident. He was not on his watch duty. He was licensed to carry a concealed weapon for personal protection. He had been the victim of crime twice before. He was driving home and saw a suspicious person in his neighborhood. He was acting as a private citizen. He has the right to call, get out of his car, walk, run or do anything he wants, WITHOUT THE RISK of being attacked by someone else.
13) Why didn’t they admit that Trayvon was caught pot residue and suspended for 10 days?
FACT: Trayvon Martin was portrayed as the perfect little school child. In the 911 tapes, Zimmerman suggested that the person he was looking at was on drugs. First, Trayvon Martin was far from the picture they painted. Second, we still don’t have toxicology reports on him. Could he have been high when Zimmerman saw him? Also, could of the drug use have contributed to Tryvon’s attack on Zimmerman? More to come…
14) Why haven’t they revealed that Trayvon was caught with what appears to be stolen jewelry and flathead screwdriver in his backpack at school?
FACT: WOW, now this is an interesting revelation. Here, Zimmerman indicated that this person acted suspicious. With this is information, it is definitely not outside the realm of possibility that Trayvon Martin was actually “casing” the neighborhood. I wonder if Obama’s look-a-like son also has the same behavior problems…
15) Why did they lie that George Zimmerman uttered a Racial slur in his 911 call?
FACT: Even liberal CNN had to refute this claim as they had an audio expert try to enhance the audio. The bottom line is the race baiters heard jibberish, and made up whatever they wanted to hear. Just another example of how these people will LIE to sway public opinion.
16) Why is the media making it seem 100% conclusive that the voice screaming for help is not George Zimmerman?
FACT: The Orlando Sentinel claims they worked with two experts to determine that the voice on the 911 is not Zimmerman, as it only matched with a rate of 48%. The expert indicated that he had to enhance, edit, remove portions on the one 911 tape. What they didn’t reveal are some interesting observations. First, there is no way to really now unless you have a comparative analysis with Trayvon Martin’s voice. Wouldn’t be interesting if they found no match with his voice… Second, voices can change under stress because of the surge of adrenaline. Under stress voice pitches can distort sounding higher than normal. Zimmerman’s voice on the 911 call is low and hushed, which in itself is a distortion of his real voice. Under the two extremes, low and hushed and screaming, there is simply no way to say absolutely that the voice on the 911 call is Zimmerman’s but neither can you say with certainty that it’s not. Again, the only real evidence to say it was Zimmerman is “John” the only eye-witness who saw Martin on top of Zimmerman and heard and saw Zimmerman calling for help.
Now, given the propensity of the media to be in the hip pocket of the Libtard Left, and given Sharpton/Jackson/Bambi/Spike Lee’s collective penchant for race-baiting…do you get the feeling we’re being played?
I sure as Hell do.
