Hannity interviews George Zimmerman

Well, FOX just pulled an ABC/CNN editing job on the Zimmerman interview.

I think Zimmerman has been treated horribly by the media, but I’m not sure he did himself any favors last night.  Overall, he was flat and made some statements that are going to haunt him.  I’m wondering what’s with these attorneys allowing their clients to go on tv for interviews, as in this case and also in Sandusky.

I felt the following statements were going to be picked up for replay and they are cold:

Hannity: “Is there anything that you regret? Do you regret getting out of the  car to follow Trayon that night?”

Zimmerman:  No, sir.

Hannity asked. “Do you regret that you had a gun that night?”

“No, sir,” Zimmerman, 28, replied. “I feel that it was all God’s plan and not for me to second-guess it or judge it.”

(Cringe)  That is a stunning statement.

FOX just played this clip, but they cut it off just before the “I feel that it was all God’s plan…..”

I don’t know what he meant by that, because how could it have been “all God’s plan?”  But whatever he meant, he did say it and it should not have been edited out.  Misleading.  That does not accurately inform the person who did not watch the interview.

P. S.:  Well, now they are doing a segment discussing the “God’s plan” quote, but still the tape was edited to exclude it earlier this morning.

More facts and documents in the Martin/Zman case

I found more raw documents in the case.  This link contains police reports, witness statements, ballistics, toxicology, and DNA results.

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/120698339/Florida-v-George-Zimmerman—Evidence-released-to-public-May-17_-2012

A few highlights:

  • THC 1.5 ng/mL
  • THC-COOH (Carboxy) 7.3 ng/mL

FDLE Report:

Trayvon was wearing

  • One light grey Nike sweatshirt
  • One dark grey Fruit of the Loom hooded sweatshirt
  • “Each sweatshirt displays a hole located in the upper left chest area. The areas around these holes were microscopically examined and chemically processed for the presence of gunshot residues  Both holes display residues and physical effects consistent with a contact shot.”

Like I mentioned in the previous post, Lawrence Kobilinsky said the Medical Examiner’s autopsy, which says “intermediate”, 1 to 18 inches would trump the FDLE ballistics report above.  But in a way they are both saying the same thing, one saying “contact” the other saying as close as 1 inch.  (Even though he whipped out a measuring stick to indicate just how “far” 18 inches could be…..)  Then they showed a diagram showing them both standing up with Zimmerman pointing the gun to further muddy the waters, even though by all accounts they were both on the ground, with one witness saying Martin was on top, straddling Zman and hitting him “MMA.”

The report of “bloody knuckles,” though, is not right.  There was an abrasion on Trayvon’s left ring finger 1/4 x 1/8 inch and doesn’t qualify as bloody knuckles. (I heard somebody say it was 1/4 x 8 inches.  Honestly, they just get on and blabber on and I don’t think some of these “experts” have even read the reports.)   The illustrative diagram also clearly shows that it is not very big.

The media is/are so shameless in their deceptions.

They don’t want to let go of their narrative.  And some accounts are clinging to the “it could have been avoided if Zimmerman had not gotten out of the truck.”  Well, of course, it could have, but it could have been avoided if he had not gotten into the truck in the first place, if he had not gotten up that morning, and if Trayvon had stayed in his apartment and not gone to the store.  That might sound good on tv but it won’t stand up in court.

They report said it could not be determined whose voice it was yelling for help.

There was blood, his own blood, on Zman’s shirt, I believe it was bout 16 stains that tested positive for blood.

A lot still remains to be cleared up.

P. S.:  Something just occurred to me.  I doubt these documents have addresses, but I am wondering if Trayvon Martin actually lived in this community.  It has been assumed or indicated that he did, but he was shot on the 26th but did not have any identification on him.  It was the 28th before his father identified him.  If there is a person killed on the grounds of your community and there’s police, et cetera, there for hours if not days investigating and questioning witnesses, you would think his father would have known right away it was his son.  Just a thought…..It would be relevant whether he lived there or not.

Copy of autopsy provides important facts in George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case Update2

Trayvon Martin autopsy:

71 inches, 158 pounds.

Wound directly front to back with no exit

Soot, ring abrasion and 2×2 inch stippling around wound

Cause of Death:  Gunshot wound

Manner of Death:  Homicide

From a news report, it was reported toxicology showed marijuana, but I haven’t seen a toxicology report.

Note:  I keep hearing and reading about the shot being at a 1 to 18 inch distance.  Where did that come from?  I am unable to find any mention of 1 – 18 inches in the report.  The range is described as “intermediate.”  I thought, well, maybe the term intermediate refers to a 1 to 18 inch distance, but, if so, then what would be a close range? Update2: Now I know where it came from. Lawrence Kobilinsky, forensics examiner, describes a close range as 1 – 6 inches and intermediate range as 1 – 18 inches.  Either way it can be as close as 1 inch. Logically, it should be 6 – 18 inches, it seems to me.  A ballistic report indicates a “contact” wound.  Kobilinsky says the autopsy trumps the ballistics.   But he does not mention the soot and the stippling!  What I would like to ask him is what range is indicated by the 2×2 inch stippling.  So this is misleading not to mention that.  They obviously have read the same autopsy report I read so they HAVE to know it’s in there.  Funny how they are leaving this out.  (You can tell I’m detail oriented, but it is the details that ultimately get to the truth.)

Quote from report:

“The entrance wound is located on the left chest, 17-1/2 below the top of the head, 1 inch to the left of the anterior midline, and 1/2 inch below the nipple.  It consists of 3/8 inch diameter round entrance defect with soot, ring abrasion, and a 2 x 2 inch area of stippling.This wound is consistent with a wound of entrance of intermediate range.”

A medical report from George Zimmerman’s doctor, which I have not seen, reportedly says the next day he had two black eyes, a fractured nose, and two lacerations on the back of the head and an injured back.

All the hoop-la from the media putting out inflammatory lies or half-truths, they should be ashamed.  The president should be ashamed for reving up the frenzy, but that is what he does.

I heard Trayvon Martin’s attorney say that all they ever wanted was for Zimmerman to be arrested.  Well, they got what they wanted.  Now will they let the legal process play out and accept whatever the result may be?  We’ll see.

Obama: “If I had a son he’d look like Steve Capus”

Oops, that was a mistake.

Easter Surprise or Good Friday Dump:

NBC News president, Steve Capus, says it was a mistake – the altering and splicing of the 911 tape that left out pertinent words (just a few words so it took quite a small little snip) to make it appear Zimmerman made a spontaneous statement when he was only answering a question of the 911 operator.

No, sorry, that was no “mistake.”  A mistake might be termed as saying  words you don’t mean to say, but altering a tape? Nope, that is intentional.  And I heard, also, that this same misrepresentation was repeated about 5 times.  (Which I believe mainly because that’s their MO when the corrupt media wants to drive something into the minds of the people.  Repeat.  Repeat.  Repeat.)

This is nothing unusual, they just got caught.  And bear in mind this is not talk radio or some comedy show, but what is supposed to be news you can trust.  Far, far from it.

It is reported by NBC/MSNBC that the producer that did this was fired.  And we are supposed to believe them?  Sure.  Right.  We don’t even know who it was.

But what more can they do but fired him?  Not much, I guess.

But I wonder if they made him return the bonus as well.

As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s how the actual conversation went down:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

Three networks have now admitted to major mistakes in Zimmerman/Martin

I don’t think they were mistakes, but very intentional and deliberate.  A mistake is when you add up your checkbook wrong or break a glass.  This was something entirely different.

NBC doctored the 911 call to present a false impression, leaving out key words.

ABC showed video saying there was no injuries to the head, and it was repeated and replayed all over the place, then all of a sudden, an inhanced tape comes out showing there was injuries.

Now CNN has admitted their analysis and claim there was a racial slur in the 911 tape was in error, and an inhanced version of that tape reflects the word that was bleeped out (indicating a slur) was, in fact, the word “cold.”

So now what happens?  Everything gets kind of quiet, and the fact remains that a man was tried already in the media – the corrupt media.  So once again they have taken a narrative from the drawer of Media Matters (a plan sitting there just waiting for something to happen that could be used) and they have run with it in a frenzy.  Even though there were rantings of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and even members of congress, not to mention the president giving the “go ahead,” none of it could have happened except with the cooperation, no, the eager participation of the media to bring it home and sear their version of things in the mind of Americans, and the world, for that matter.

MSNBC and NBC lead the way in media malpractice and dishonesty

MSNBC has been dishonest for at least the 4 years I have been following them.  I am so glad they are being called on this kind of stuff.  This is worse than most, though, since it is obvious they so badly wanted to make race the major issue in this case that they left out important words.  Talk about out of context, and it has aided and abetted the hate that has been unleashed against Zimmerman in this case.  There are so many death threats on Twitter it is shocking.  It’s making me wonder what kind of country do we live in?  There is an element of hatred that is being revealed here that is truly disturbing.  I hope nobody gets hurt.  And the left doesn’t even blink.  But this is obama’s America.  Makes me want to cry.

And just as an aside:  How much did Joe Scarborough get for his soul?

“They killed my son” says Trayvon’s mother

Trayvon’s mother says:

They killed my son, and now they are trying to kill his reputation” as more and more unflattering facts (or rumors, who knows) come out about her son.

Who is the they she is talking about, I wonder?  “They” have not killed anybody.

Trayvon’s parents seek to trademark  “I am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon.”

Democrat and black John Conyers is holding a hearing on Florida’s stand your ground law, which is none of his business but takes this whole sorry affair to congress.

The corrupt mainstream media reporters and commentators figuratively wearing hoodies as they propel a false narrative of this case in rapid fire.

To me this is all a display of racial hatred coming from black people, and the democrats, left wing, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the media who are all so prejudiced and seemingly unable to be objective are all joining in to form a vigilante atmosphere against a United States citizen who has consitutional rights of innocent until proven guilty.  (I guess he’s a citizen because although he is now the embodiment of “the evil white man” he really is hispanic, or a “white hispanic”, a term invented by the media because they wouldn’t want to drop the main emphasis of their story and agenda.)  What we have is a bunch of rumors which are continually changing.  And we have a president who helped to spiral it out of control by throwing a log on the fire Friday and then leaving the country.

Remember how it ratcheted up when the president answered this racially charged question by saying “if I had a son…..”, a question posed by a NBC reporter, Mike Viquiera, which I am convinced was set up to do just exactly what it did.:

It was NBC’s Mike Viquiera who asked. “Mr. President, may I ask you about this current case in Florida, very controversial, allegations of lingering racism within our society — the so-called do not —  I’m sorry —  Stand Your Ground law and the justice in that? Can you comment on the Trayvon Martin case, sir?”

And absolutely none of this pitiful display would be possible if not for the CORRUPT MAINSTREAM MEDIA.
