It's interesting not just for the prejudice, but the mode of address and people righteously gathering around.  As though there's a presumption in people of being able to confront and order around a (lone) black guy.


I would like to see that done in a less obnoxious way. If someone brought that amount of tools to a chained up bike in the middle of the day, I would think they worked for the park as well.

While not 100% true, an employee of a Park's Dept. would have some sort of uniform on. At the very least, they would have some sort of ID card.

Well then in what world does a bike thief answer, "No." When asked, "Is that your bike?"

The investigation into a controversial police killing of a college student last weekend took a dramatic twist Wednesday when Pasadena authorities arrested a 911 caller, alleging his fabrication led to the shooting.

An officer shot 19-year-old Kendrec McDade on a narrow street in the city's Northwest district about 11 p.m. Saturday.

Police were dispatched to the scene after a man, identified as Oscar Carrillo, called 911. He said two armed men had stolen his laptop computer and backpack as he was buying tacos at a stand on Orange Grove Boulevard.

But on Wednesday, officials said that Carrillo, 26, lied to police about the existence of a gun and that detectives now believe neither McDade nor the other person were armed.

Carrillo was arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter.
 
"Mr. Carrillo emphatically indicated a gun was involved ... that is very important. It sets the platform for the mind-set of the responding officers," Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said at a news conference Wednesday.

On a 911 tape released by police, Carrillo is heard saying first that one of the suspects had a gun and later that both were armed. Here is an excerpt:

"Two guys ... just put a gun in my face," the caller said.

"It was two guys.... Oh my God."

The dispatcher asked for details about the attackers and in which direction they fled.

"Did they have any weapons?" the dispatcher asked.

"Yeah, they have a gun," the caller responded.

"Do you remember anything about the gun?" the dispatcher asked.

"Both have a gun, man," the man said. "They run away from me."

Sanchez said that after more interviews, Carrillo admitted to detectives that he lied about the gun.

I managed to miss that George Zimmerman's father is a retired Judge, and that Zimmerman has had sveral run-ins with law enforcement:

And another label has also stuck in the public's perception: frustrated cop wannabe.

Over the years, his scores of calls to police showed he pursued shoplifters and errant drivers with zeal, reporting pit bulls, potholes, children playing in the street, open garage doors and "suspicious" youths - usually black males - loitering in the street.

He peppered his calls with jargon familiar to police. In one case, he chased a reckless driver while calling 911 - the driver later told police he was terrified that Zimmerman was going to attack him. In another case, Zimmerman tailed a supermarket shoplifter until a police officer successfully arrested the thief.

On the night of Feb. 26, he tailed Trayvon Martin through the Retreat at Twin Lakes, the gated community where Zimmerman lived with his wife, describing his every move to a dispatcher who told him he didn't need to follow the young man. A scuffle ensued and Zimmerman shot Trayvon dead. Zimmerman claims self-defense.

Dr. Laurence Miller, a Palm Beach County clinical psychologist who works with local police agencies, said he believes Zimmerman likely was acting out the "whole TV cop role in his head" when he confronted Trayvon.

"A lot of people like the power and control that law enforcement officers have but with that comes a tremendous amount of responsibility," Miller said, pointing out that a police officer is the only profession that can use "coercive physical force" or lethal force to subdue a suspected criminal.

"People act like cowboys and like the power, but not the responsibility."

Rush Limbaugh has weighed in, and you can guess where he stands. I know I shouldn't have let that get to me, but between him and my uncle, I couldn't help myself. I was thinking to myself all day why this became a political issue for conservatives. If anyone is curious, I wrote my thoughts down here.

By backing up his belief in the "stand your ground" law. He insists that Martin must have been hitting Zimmerman, and if Zimmerman felt that his life was in danger, he was within his rights. I disagreed, but felt obliged to humor him a little. I laid out an hypothesis that if Martin had a gun and felt threatened by Zimmerman, he'd be within his rights to shoot first and it would be totally legal. But somehow, using his fists (which, again, I don't believe he even did) meant he was guilty and Zimmerman was innocent. I asked him what he thought about that. Silence so far.

Imagine waking up in the morning, reading a story about an unarmed black kid being gunned down by a stalking predator, and deciding, "Well, it'll piss off liberals if I defend this guy, so that's my stance, and I'll twist all the facts I can to support a "self-defense" claim, even though it makes me look like a knee-jerk racist idiot." That's where we are now.

Why do I get the feeling you're putting a lot more rational thought into that than the people you ascribe that thought process to.

 

We're dealing with lizard-brain stuff here Singer, these people have so little understanding of themselves and their impulses they;re one step up from monkeys flinging poo at their own reflection.

This case seems to be some sort of litmus test for human intelligence.  And an alarming number of people are failing badly.  

post #264 of 2837

Thing is I really don't think we're dealing with intelligence here, not straight up IQ anyway - I think EQ plays a much bigger part. That so many are failing that test is a lot scarier imo. I'll take a country of morons over a country of narcissists and sociopaths.

I've had delete a lot of people from my facebook. It's very disappointing to see people I thought were rational, kind, cool people post the "Trayvon Martin photos the media DOESN'T want you to see!" and try to cover it up with "Hey man, I'm just against media bias, alright? I'm just saying."

That's why I said people are failing.  Because there is no intelligence to be found.

 

It sucks that such a tragedy happened, but as the Chinese say 'a crisis is opportunity' in disguise.  I think this case has allowed people to make a decision as to who they want to associate with.  There is such an obvious divide here between people, the likes of which I don't think we've seen since the Rodney King incident, and I feel it's even worse now because of the internet.

 

Life just seems to be serving up more and more drastic means of separating the wheat from the chaff...it's like half the population are betraying their true nature as sniveling knuckle walkers at this point.

post #267 of 2837

I think the biggest problems that we are dealing with now is lack of valid information and time.

 

As more and more time passes without knowing all the specifics of the events that transpired that night, the crazier and more radical speculation of the event increases....almost exponentially. 

What's disturbing is that as little bits of info do trickle out, it just seems to ramp up the conjecture amongst both the supporters of Zimmerman as well as those of Martin....and that conjecture seems to be getting more and more deranged.

I really hope we all end up finding out what really happened that night because the longer this gets dragged out, the more harm it does to the society as a whole. 

post #268 of 2837

I wonder who's leaking this info?  Bits and pieces seem to be conflicting in their would be effect, if you know what I mean.  I have this Wire-ish mental image of a leak war where the DA's office saying "Quick, we need to make this kid look bad", while (some of) the cops are going "Get that Zimmerman guy under the nearest bus before he takes us all with him!"

Even if Zimmerman was supposedly "cleaned up," wouldn't there still be marks on him?  I mean, he claims that he had his head smashed against the pavement!!  There's no fucking way that you're walking away from that without some noticeable amount of bruising.

Didn't you hear?  The video is too blurry to see anything!!!  

post #275 of 2837

OF COURSE!!!

 

I'm certain the bandages and blood stains will show once someone clears up the image.

 

But here's something that has been rumbling around in my brain for a while.  Perhaps someone already mentioned it, but if Zimmerman truly was in a life-or-death struggle--how the hell could he refuse medical treatment?  Not only did he--allegedly--almost die, but he also took the life of another person.  I'm pretty sure that's a trip to the hospitable regardless of what Zimmerman wants.

 

BUT THAT BRINGS ME TO ANOTHER ISSUE!!!

 

This whole bullshit testimony that Treyvon Martin, not only initiated the altercation, but planned on beating  Zimmerman to death MAKES NOT A GODDAMN LICK OF SENSE!!! 

 

Are we really expected believe that Martin (who Zimmerman now claims made his intentions clear as he was beating upon him.  At this point, I expect Zimmerman's next version of the story to detailed Martin as some demonic figure) went up to a guy that he didn't even know, and planned to kill him because--wait for it--he was following him?!!

 

I just....ugh.

*Why* exactly has Zimmerman not been brought back in yet? Do we have an explanation for that? The police should be re-interviewing him right this second.

post #281 of 2837

Mother of 13 year-old witness says the police pressured her son to confirm more than he actually remembered.

 

This just gets worse and worse. So the ONE witness who says he saw Martin on top of Zimmerman was a)pressured by police, and b)may well have only seen one unidentifiable person lying on the grass.

Meanwhile, the mother of a 13-year-old who also witnessed the killing told the New York Daily News that when Sanford police interviewed her son eight days after the incident, they "pressured" him to give more detail than he recalled.

 

8 days? Seriously? If that was the first interview what the hell kind of canvass job is that?

 

This kind of thing makes me think they haven't done anything about this because it landing in court now is just going to expose their process to the limelight

post #283 of 2837

I posted this link a page back, but I guess it got lost in the shuffle. It is the most complete primer on all info related to the case, and gets updated frequently. The reason the cops didn't investigate properly is that they have a history of bias against Black people, and were likely covering up for Zimmerman.

 

 

Quote:

Why is the history of the Sanford Police Department in question?

Sanford PD's officers have suffered a series of public missteps in recent years, according to local reporters. In 2006 two private security guards—the son of a Sanford police officer, and a volunteer for the department—killed a black teen with a single gunshot in his back. Even though they admitted to never identifying themselves, the guards were released without charges. In 2009, after an assailant allegedly attempted to rape a child in her home, the department was called to task for sitting on the suspect's fingerprints, delaying identification and pursuit of the attacker.

 

Perhaps the most significant incident occurred in late 2010: Justin Collison, the son of a Sanford PD lieutenant, sucker-punched a homeless black man outside a bar, and officers on the scene released Collison without charges. He eventually surrendered after video of the incident materialized online. The police chief at the time was ultimately forced into retirement. "Bottom line, we didn't do our job that night," a Police Department representative told WFTV of the incident. The TV station later learned that the Sanford patrol sergeant in charge on the night of Collison's assault, Anthony Raimondo, was also the first supervisor on the scene of Trayvon Martin's shooting death.

 

As a result of these incidents and their initial handling of Martin's death, the Sanford Police Department has been under increased scrutiny. Martin's parents have suggested they might call for Police Chief Bill Lee to resign.

 

UPDATE 17, 8:45 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, March 21: City of Sanford releases Q&A with police chief: Zimmerman claims he was attacked

In other developments, the Sanford city commission approved a vote of "no confidence" in Bill Lee, the police chief whose department has so far declined to arrest and charge Trayvon Martin's shooter. The city manager now has three choices: fire Lee, ask him to resign, or do neither and agree to take responsibility for any future problems with the police department. In response, the city manager released an undated set of "citizens' questions" about the case for Lee to answer; they appear to date from before the release of the 911 tapes. The questions and answers, which you can read here, are pretty fascinating and add to our knowledge of the case—or, at least, Sanford PD's understanding of it.

 

UPDATE 30, 11:00 a.m. EDT, Wednesday, March 28: Trayvon Martin's death extends Sanford's sordid racial history

True story: The founder of Sanford, Florida, lobbied for American blacks to move to Congo "to draw the gathering electricity from that black cloud spreading over the Southern states." That's just the opening chapter in a complicated history of race relations in the town where Trayvon Martin lost his life. I've recorded much of that history in a new story here at Mother Jones, from liquidated black townships to Jackie Robinson to recent police problems. But this history could be written about many cities in many parts of America; if, as the demonstrators say, "We are all Trayvon Martin," then we are all Sanford, as well.

Uncorroborated, but it looks like Zimmerman was to volatile to be a bouncer for houseparties:

 

 

 

Quote:

An unnamed former co-worker told the New York Daily News that George Zimmerman was paid under-the-table for providing security for illegal house parties between 2001 and 2005, but was let go because his anger issues “became a liability.”

 

 

Quote:
“He definitely loved being in charge,” he said. “He loved the power. Still, I could never see him killing someone. Never.”

 

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/03/30/former-co-worker-zimmerman-lost-security-guard-job-after-he-snapped/

 

His record of earlier incidents with the law backs that up.  I mean, the dude has such a wannabe-cop-complex he chased a speeder through traffic.  The victim in that case feared for his life.

 

I'm trying to see all sides on this one, but I'm failing miserably.

post #290 of 2837

Team Zimmerman will do anything to validate their hero.  I was arguing with one troll on a youtube vid and the guy kept bringing up Martin's (non violent) past, the fact that he was suspended.  Yeah, for a bag of weed with no weed in it.  And that Martin's past leads him to believe Martin attacked Zimm.  But the guy refused to acknowledge the fact that Zimmerman's violent past makes it more likely for him to attack Martin...if you want to just ignore blatant evidence and go for the "who's more likely?" defense.  I swear most of the trolls who are team Zimm seem to have the same mental deficiency.

Probably.  A black kid was involved, therefor he was a DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.

 

The Mother Jones articles are just invaluable (linked on the first page, and Diva and I keep linking to them).  Zimmerman sounds like an awful neighbor:

 

http://motherjones.com/politics/2012/03/trayvon-shooters-911-calls-potholes-piles-trash-black-men

 

Plus the account of the neighbor that he visited and strongly encouraged him to buy a gun for self-defense.  I'd take that as a threat, we're it me.

 

 

 

 

post #292 of 2837

It just seems a whole lot to me that, if indeed Zimmerman was beaten up, then Trayvon was the one who was "standing his ground".

post #293 of 2837

This is a good piece about how we should use this case to look beyond Zimmerman and focus on the socio-political context that allows stuff like this to happen.

 

 

Quote:
Despite the dramatic legal changes brought about by the ending of Jim Crow, it is once again socially, politically and legally acceptable to presume the guilt of nonwhite bodies.

This is the political setting for the moment when George Zimmerman approached Trayvon Martin as he walked home in the rain with a bag of Skittles. During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Zimmerman’s neighbor Frank Taaffe suggested “if he [Trayvon] had just answered him [Zimmerman] in an appropriate manner, ‘I’m just here visiting. My mother’s house is around the corner,’ and be upfront and truthful, there wouldn’t be any problem.” Fox News host Geraldo Rivera weighed in on the case by saying, “I’ll bet you money, if he didn’t have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way.” Conservative commentators and websites piled on, pointing to Trayvon’s gold teeth and his tattoos. These statements suggest that the unarmed teenager was culpable in the encounter that led to his death, not because of any aggressive or illegal act but because he was not following the appropriate protocol for being black in public. A black body in public space must presume its own guilt and be prepared to present a rigidly controlled public performance of docility and respectability.

 

Sagging-pants laws in Louisiana, Georgia, Florida and Arkansas attempt to legislate that public performance of black bodies by making it illegal to enact particular versions of youth fashion associated with blackness. Philadelphia, New Orleans, Cleveland, Chicago and other cities have responded to violence in predominantly black communities by imposing curfews on young people and then policing these rules most vehemently among black youth—making it a crime for them to be in public space. New York City’s “stop and frisk” law empowers police to temporarily detain a person based merely on “reasonable suspicion” of involvement in criminal activity, which in practice has been vastly disproportionately applied to young men of color.

 

It is easy, but wrong, to write off Zimmerman as a deranged man whose violence against Trayvon Martin was tragic but unpreventable. Zimmerman was acting in ways entirely consistent with the long history and contemporary reality that assumes the criminality and potential danger of black bodies.

It's part of it, sure.  But there's aspect to the ways people are jumping onto this that actually remind me of the climate change debate.

It doesn't matter what the truth actually is, certain people have to come down against it any-old-how.  Because to play it any other way means the hippies and the bleeding hearts are right and that is a cognitive impossibility.
 

 

post #298 of 2837

Here's what I think happened.  Zimmerman approached Martin and initiated some kind of confrontation that escalated.  Zimmerman shot Martin out of panic which was unnecessary since it was merely a street altercation that would've ended like most of them; both guys walk away with their pride and faces a little damaged, but still alive.  But Zimmerman's vigilante like attitude and firearm gave him a false sense of purpose.  Zimmerman then exaggerated his "Trayvon almost killed me, I feared for my life, he was bashing my head, what if he went for my gun, etc etc" story, when it was just a simple fight, because he knew he'd fucked up by killing somebody.  But he could get away with it because his dad was a judge who'd gotten him out of his violent altercations in the past.  And it was dark so people will believe a black guy with a hoodie out at night is up to no good and he was Captain of the (supposed) neighborhood watch trying to protect the neighborhood.
