Zimmerman and Martin: Some facts so simple that even Fox 'News' should be able to understand
by Laurence Lewis


Trayvon Martin

From the start, Fox "News" has presented its usual fair and balanced perspective about the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, and last week it even went so far as to enable an attempt by shooter George Zimmerman's attorney to smear with inadmissible evidence the shot dead unarmed black teenager. Inadmissible evidence that Zimmerman's attorney subsequently admitted was false. But while Fox and others, for some not particularly difficult to discern reason, continue to attempt to make a case against the shot dead unarmed black teenager, there are some very basic facts that even Fox, many of its viewers, and those who share their fair and balanced opinions should be able to understand. Even if that understanding does not in any way alter those fair and balanced opinions.

1) George Zimmerman had been arrested and charged for an act of violence. Trayvon Martin hadn't.

2) George Zimmerman had had a restraining order granted against him for alleged domestic abuse. Trayvon Martin hadn't.

3) George Zimmerman had a history of racial conflict. Trayvon Martin didn't.

George Zimmerman's attorney seems to think the personal history of the shot dead unarmed black teenager is relevant. And he's right. It is. Because the shot dead unarmed black teenager had no history of legal problems arising from acts of violence. George Zimmerman, on the other hand, did.

3. My heart is still breaking for Travon's Mom and Dad

This never ends for them. They will have one milestone after another to suffer through. Would he be graduating from high school this spring. The family will not see him walk across the stage to get his diploma.

I hope the family sues for every dime Zimmerman's web page took up in donations. It makes me cringe to think Zimmerman. may profit from the cruel suffering inflicted on that unfortunate family. What a reprehensible chunk of excrement that lying sack of shit is.

4. I hope the murderer Zimmerman goes to jail for a long long time, Trayvon deserves justice!

Not only does Trayvon deserve justice, all of America deserves justice.
An innocent teenager armed with a bag of skittles, on his way home to watch the NBA Allstar game, was murdered while defending himself against his stalker.

They are relevant because:

ZIMMERMAN IS ON TRIAL, NOT TRAYVON MARTIN.

7. The only simple fact in this case that Fox News understands is skin color.

And that's the only fact that the Fox News jury/audience cares about.
