in the Zimmerman/Martin case

The black community can thank the mainstream liberal media for the egg in their face, loss of credibility, and for making them look like fools. The liberal media jumped on this story and 24/7 its been a Zimmermann is guilty narrative reported as possible/likely racial motivation, etc. We've seen a half dozen photos of Martin as a clean cut smiling youth, but we only see one mug shot photo of Zimmermann where he looks rough/mean. hmmmmmmmm no narrative with the photos. The black community jumped in to follow the medias lead just for the police report to be leaked and also information on Martins troubled past with possible drug possession, theft, suspensions, etc. The black community went all in with the race card, demanding that the process of law be ignored, to throw Zimmerman in jail without an investigation, etc.

WE will never know exactly how it all happened that night, but it appears Martin attacked per the police report, an eye witness, and confirmed by Zimmermans broken nose and injured skull. The fact that Zimmermann called 911 first proves he didn't have an agenda, if he was playing Rambo he wouldn't have notified the police ahead of time.

Due to 8 burgleries in that neighborhood the residents were on high alert, the residents were ready to be vigilant and be extra skeptical of strangers in the neighborhood.

Put yourself in Zimmermans shoes, someone who is trying to protect the neighborhood, questions a stranger, then gets assaulted, what do you think in the heat of the moment while getting punched and your head slammed into the ground? Do you think he might have a knife or gun, or he might keep slamming my head into the ground and kill me? Instincts to protect yourself kick in when you feel your life is in danger, of course we all wish this didn't end this way, but its starting to look like a hot head troubled teen lost his cool which escalated the situation out of control, if Martin would have kept his cool he would still be alive today.
