George Zimmerman's lawyers will ..., 1 May 2014 [cached]
George Zimmerman's lawyers will use the shaken baby syndrome as a reason for self defense against Trayvon Martin. I hope the prosecutors are preparing their side as well. I wish they would arrest "Baby Huey. All of this media attention will no doubt give him a claim of an unfair trial. What is taking so long?
SANFORD, Florida (Reuters) - "Shaken Baby Syndrome" was cited on Friday in the defense of George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Florida, man who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, in a case that has sparked a widespread public outcry.
His point, which has been made before, was that Zimmerman contends he shot Martin in self defense and feared for his life after the 17-year-old attacked him and began pounding his head into the concrete pavement of a gated community on a rainy evening in Sanford on February 26.
Police have not arrested Zimmerman because the use of lethal force in self defense is permitted under the Stand Your Ground law approved by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush in 2005.
Seventy-three percent of blacks in the survey said they believed Zimmerman, a white Hispanic, would have been arrested if the person he shot dead was white.
The Stand Your Ground law is being invoked in the case of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot and killed a 17-year-old black student who was walking through a gated community last month while carrying a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea.
Sharpton said Zimmerman was not a police officer but instead a neighborhood watch volunteer, and Martin had no obligation to engage him in conversation.
"Travyon had no obligation whatsoever to stop for Zimmerman," Sharpton said.
Zimmerman told police he shot Martin in self-defense, yet no arrest was made by the police in Sanford, Florida, the Orlando suburb where the shooting occurred.
The police have released the 911 recordings between their officers and Zimmerman. The recordings make clear that Zimmerman was told by a police officer not to trail young Martin. Despite those instructions, Zimmerman confronted Martin and an altercation apparently occurred with the young man being shot.
Sharpton, who is the head of the National Action Network, will lead a rally on Thursday in Sanford, calling for Zimmerman to be arrested.
"Zimmerman should be arrested," Sharpton said.
The fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin ..., 8 May 2014 [cached]
The fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman took place on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, United States. Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old African American male who was unarmed. George Zimmerman was a 28-year-old multi-racial Hispanic American, who was the community watch coordinator for the gated community where the shooting took place.
While on a private errand, Zimmerman saw Martin walking inside the gated community where Martin and his father were visiting his father's fiancée. Zimmerman called the Sanford Police Department to report Martin's behavior as suspicious. Shortly afterwards, there was an altercation, which ended with Zimmerman fatally shooting Martin once in the chest at close range.
When police arrived on the scene Zimmerman told them that Martin had attacked him and that he had shot Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and two vertical lacerations on the back of his head.EMTs treated Zimmerman at the scene, after which he was taken to the Sanford Police Department. Zimmerman was detained and questioned for approximately five hours. A statement was videotaped, and he was then released without being charged. Police said that they had not found evidence to contradict his assertion of self-defense.
Trayvon Martin case shouldn't be race-based - Frost Illustrated : Frost Illustrated, 7 April 2014 [cached]
That's the real question that should be before the jury in the trial of neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin. Sure, there are other truly germane issues involved-some of them dealing with race-but that shouldn't be the determination in the outcome. Did George Zimmerman kill Trayvon Martin? Yes, he did. Did he initially follow Martin through that Florida neighborhood because of Martin's "look" (i.e., race and mode of dress)? Possibly. Does that make George Zimmerman a racist? Possibly, but not necessarily. (More on that at a later date.) But, this isn't about thinking. It's about what someone did and George Zimmerman did at least two things that for me-one of the "great unwashed" when it comes to legal matters-are problematic:
1. He followed and confronted Martin, even after police told him not to do so, and
