Trayvon Martin Slur Leads To Woman’s Arrest

By: Amanda Crum - July 23, 2014

Trayvon Martin, the 17-year old Florida boy who was shot and killed by a self-appointed neighborhood watch member for looking suspicious, has become a name associated with injustice and racism. Almost a year to the day that the shooter, George Zimmerman, was acquitted of the killing, an Arkansas woman was arrested for threatening two young boys in the name of the victim.

Yelena Goforth-Buyalova allegedly brought the boys to tears after she told them they deserved “to be treated like Trayvon Martin” after they reportedly threw trash on the stairs in front of her apartment. She later called the police and told the dispatcher the boys “did not deserve to live in the apartments and they should be in prison because they were black.”

Goforth-Buyalova says that the responding officers made up the comments in their report. She was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment.

On Saturday, the Martin family held a rally in honor of Trayvon on the anniversary of Zimmerman’s verdict. Their Trayvon Martin Foundation aims to create awareness about violent crimes and to support the families who are left to grieve, and Martin’s parents spoke at the rally along with several celebrities, including Kobe Bryant.

“Our responsibility is more than putting a ball in a basket, but giving them the platform to voice these inspirations,” Bryant said.

    Remember that old “It’s a free country” thing?
    Not any more.

    • eryche

      Really? Who is it that was denied freedom in this story.

      • Sam Mdws

        The woman who was arrested for a B.S. harassment charge.

        • eryche

          If you’re referring to freedom of speech, she exercised that right. She then had to deal with the consequences. And if threatening children isn’t harassment I don’t know what is.

          • Travman

            Yeah but even if her alleged comments were accurate, she didn’t make a threat. She didn’t say she was going to treat them the same way George Zimmerman treated Trayvon Martin, she said they ought to be treated like Trayvon Martin. I’m not saying she’s not a horrible witch for saying that, but I AM saying it’s not, nor should it be, illegal to be a horrible witch.

          • Mike Davis

            Just shut the hell,cant even understand your point.lol.

          • james

            So freedoms now come with consequences. That is not a freedom. who knows how many times if any, the kids throw trash at her house. Maybe the little children should be taught some respect.

          • eryche

            Of course they come with consequences. Otherwise, you’d be the only one with freedom. You’re free to say whatever you want. And others are free to respond however they want. Granted, the children are likely miserable brats. But isn’t she supposed to be the adult in the picture?

          • james

            Yeah. The crazy old cat lady that nobody is supposed to mess with

          • Roger Buck

            Oh so freedom of speech is dependent on who is suppose to be the adult. Oh boy, we are all in trouble at one time or another. The government is not suppose to be one of those consequences. Sorry, being mature adult or not isn’t part of that basic right. Or is the freedom of speech only in effect when the speech is something you approve of?

          • eryche

            I didn’t say it was dependent on anything. Am I not being clear or are you having trouble with reading comprehension? Let me ask you this, do you condone threatening children with death for misbehaving?

          • Roger Buck

            I understood exactly what you said! There was no direct threat according to the article. THAT was something YOU inserted. And keeping with your snarky reply, perhaps it is YOUR comprehension skills that require some work. Mine are just fine. Have a great day!

          • Carl Schouten

            I was always threatened to with-in an inch of my life.

          • William

            Freedom comes with responsibility. She was not responsible in this case. Even if those children are not being brought up properly by their parents, it takes a village. She has responsibility.
            I hope this serves as a warning to her, she may commit serious hate crime later.

          • David

            whaaaaat? what consequences? she said something, and it brought some kids to tears — what’s the charge? Assault with mean language?

          • Stephen Paden

            Freedom of speech has no governmental consequences. The Police are part of the government.
            You fail at basic Civics.

          • Artful Dodger

            The point is you pillock, THERE SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ANY CONSEQUENCES. If there are consequences, then you do not have freedom of speech. You must be a Liberal. You really aren’t very bright.

          • eryche

            Perhaps consequences was the wrong word. Along with our freedoms come certain responsibilities. Those who responded to her words were also exercising their right of free speech. Children resort to name calling. Are you old enough to be on the internet?

          • Roger Buck

            Oh harassment? Now isn’t that an interesting term? So where was the threat? Was she in a position of authority? Harassment, a very interesting and open to interpretation type of word. Sounds a great deal like a type of charge that kind of covers the situation when you just can’t come up with something else. Now disorderly conduct, well I wasn’t there when the officers questioned her. But harassment. Now that one I might have a problem with. As for the freedom of speech that she was able to express. There can be consequences, but it was not suppose to come from the government. That I believe, is the whole premise of freedom of speech. And if you are unable to grasp that concept, you don’t understand what freedom of speech is about.

          • eryche

            Consequences clearly was the wrong word. With freedoms come responsibility. She was the adult here. To suggest these children, brats though they may be, should be dealt with the same as Martin is, to me, a threat. The government was not responding to her exercising her right to freedom of speech, it responded to her threatening behavior toward children. I have a firm grasp on the meaning of my freedoms, and the responsibilities that come with them.

          • Roger Buck

            I agree with you statement this woman reacted entirely incorrectly. I am not defending that at all. What I am defending is her freedom of speech, not her actions. And just wondering, what part of that are you not comprehending? And honestly, you will never convince me of your stance on this, and I will never convince you of mine. So, time to end the discussion. You are right, she handled this situation completely wrong. But she also has a right to say whatever she wants (short of yelling fire in a theater, and things such as that) without the government coming down on her (and yes, the police are the government). And if what she says offends anyone, including these kids, learn to deal with it, because life is full of idiots like this woman. Won’t be the first, won’t be the last. But the fact is, she woman has a basic right to freedom of speech. Even speech you, me or other don’t like.

          • EatMe

            I hope you get AIDS. I’m threatening you now, right?

      • Artful Dodger

        The woman was denied her freedom of speech. Liberals will use any lame excuse to step on your rights as an individual. Remember, the Democrats were behind the Ku Klux Klan. The Republicans freed the slaves.

        • eryche

          She wasn’t denied anything. She said what she wanted, and others exercising their freedom responded. True, the kids were brats. But she’s the adult and needs to learn to act like one. The KKK and slavery have nothing to do with this article. But, remember, this is 2014. Presumably, hopefully, all of learned much over the decades

          • Sam Garcia

            You must not understand the Freedom of Speech thing. Saying mean things is covered by First amendment.

      • Roger Buck

        I don’t know, who was arrested?

        • eryche

          The woman harassing the children was arrested. But she was not denied her right of free speech. She said what she had to say. Others exercising their own right to free speech responded. Nobody was denied anything.

          • Sam Garcia

            Eryche, you don’t understand basic Constitutional rights. That’s pretty scary. I don’t like your post, so you will now be arrested. See how that works? It doesn’t.

    • dianemou604

      There’s freedom of speech and then there is making threatening comments to children…..Two different things. If this woman had a problem with something she perceived as bad behavior by the kids then she should of taken it up with their parents.

      • Roger Buck

        Perhaps she did. At any rate, what does that have to do with her freedom of speech? There was nothing in the article that indicated she made threatening comments to the children. There is a big difference between “I am” and “You should be”.
        But taking the article as it was written, I would say she should have been free to say what she said. Doesn’t make her a good human being. but that is not the discussion, is it?

  • rentslave

    You can tell a lot about people by observing the people whom they honor.

    • David

      “who they honor”…its a subordinate clause.
      even though “whom they honor” sounds more classy…or whatever.

      you could go with an infinitive “to whom they give honor”…

    TM case solved: Subplot # 1 of 3. A frightened teen running from his creepy stalker and killer looks good on paper towards a conviction but the reality is there’s only 3 possible scenarios.

    1. TM ran and a speedy GZ chased him down and killed him.

    2. TM ran and then came back an attacked GZ even though GZ was to slow to catch him.

    3. TM didn’t run because he had no reason to and never realized he was being followed.

    I’ll take scenario # 3.

    It’s the real reason GZ attacked TM in the dark while holding a working flashlight in his hand (Recording #3 @ 2:50) and (Recording #5 @ 1:38). The element of surprise was still on his side. Clubhouse video also confirmed that somebody flashlight was on as they walked along the east perimeter of the building.

    NEC timeline:

    7:09:34 start of NEC

    7:10:32 He’s coming towards me

    7:10:56 He’s coming to check me out

    7:11:40 He’s running (nobody runs from a man sitting in a parked truck who’s talking on his cell phone with windows rolled up) When is the last time you found this situation scary enough to run from? Answer: never

    7:11:46 GZ opens truck door

    7:12:06 TM answers Jeantel’s incoming call 26 seconds AFTER GZ claimed he was running. Question? Why discuss whether or not to run from the creepy K when you’re ALREADY RUNNING from the creepy K. This is the contradiction that blows all the lies out of the water.

    7:13:40 GZ ends NEC

    7:15:40 Words & Scuffle

    7:16:06 TM phone call ends

    7:16:45 Gunshot (GZ head allegedly gets bashed over 50 times in a fight that last 65 seconds)

    Time timeline:

    4:06 – Total time of GZ NE Call

    2:00 – Time lapse between end of NEC and first sounds of confrontation

    0:10 – Estimated time it took GZ to pull over and call the police

    6:16 Total

    Distance timeline:

    940 Ft – Approximate footage TM traveled from point he was first spotted by GZ until the confrontation.

    4/10 of a second per foot. TMs estimated casual walking speed

    940 multiplied by 4/10 divided by 60 seconds equals 6.27 or 6 minutes and 16 seconds

    6:16 Total

    400 Ft – Approximate footage TM traveled to reach the clubhouse.

    2:06 plus 0:10 equals 2:16 or 2.27 multiplied by 60 divided by 4/10 equals 341 Ft (Estimated distance TM traveled when GZ first claimed he’s running.

    4:06 plus 0:10 equals 4:16 or 4.27 multiplied by 60 divided by 4/10 equals 641 Ft (Estimated distance TM traveled by the time GZ ended his NEC).

    Maps, mathmatics, and timelines confirm GZ killed TM as he was walking home by surprise attack. This is the real reason why GZ CAN’T DESCRIBE THE RUN.

    GZ ANSWERS CONFIRM THE TIMELINES: On recording #4 at 9:50 Det Serino bluffs GZ saying “There’s a possibility that whatever happened is on video tape”. This caused GZ to become extremely concerned about what Det Sernio will see on the clubhouse security videos. The following is what you get when you take the original call and merge it with the answers GZ gave later that day when they questioned him as to where he was at at different points of the non emergency call (Recording #6)”:

    At 0:41 GZ: “He’s starring at all the houses”. Detective: Where are you at right now? GZ: I’m at the clubhouse.

    At 1:03 GZ: “He has his hands in his waste band”. Detective: Where are you at now? GZ: “I think I’m still at the clubhouse.

    At 1:13 GZ: “I believe he’s a black male late teens”. Detective: Have you moved yet? GZ: I don’t think so.

    At 1:25 GZ: “He has something in his hands”. Detective: Are you still at the clubhouse? GZ: I don’t remember. REALLY? There isn’t but so many places he could be.

    At 1:46 GZ is giving the dispatcher directions. The detective finally forces his hand: You’re definitely not at the clubhouse are you? GZ: No. Detective: Are you all moving? GZ: No, I was PARKED WHERE I COULD SEE HIM. Translation: I’m still at the clubhouse.

    Detective: Are you’ll moving slow or something? Yes they are detective. Casual walking speed slow. Better hurry up GZ because after you finish giving the dispatcher directions you got 3 seconds to drive to the T before you get out of your truck.

    At 2:06 GZ: “He’s running”. Problem: GZ told police TM was at the cut through (i.e. T) when he ran. For this to be true TM had to casually walk over 300 yards (3 football fields) in approximately 2 minutes and 16 seconds. Proof that GZ call is a premeditated plot for murder.

    At 3:20 Dispatcher: “What address are you parked in front of? GZ: I don’t know. It’s a cut through. REALLY? If he’s really at the cut through, there are several houses with an address right there in front of him. Instead he commits the forbidden sin of giving out his home address before giving the dispatcher (you guessed it) the clubhouse address.

    This is what happens next. GZ ends the NEC, hurries to his truck, turns onto Twin Trees Ln, and passes TM as he’s walking eastward. GZ then parks his truck in front of the T sidewalk and waits for TM to walk past his truck (GZ: He circled my truck). TM walks onto the T and GZ gets out of his truck and follows him at a distance. GZ with the benefit of lighting from Retreat View Circle ahead sees TM make a right down the stem of the T and loses sight of him behind the building. GZ then vacates the sidewalk and runs to the NE corner of the building standing next to the row of bushes and looks around the corner. GZ it was you. YOU’RE THE ONE WHO CAME OUT OF THE BUSHES.

    to be continued…….

      Subplot #2 of 3. Jonathan Good is a possible co-conspirator. He wrote that as the ground fight escalated it moved ONTO the sidewalk while GZ story is it moved OFF the sidewalk. Sounds like it was coordinated but they got it backwards. The ground fight ended up several feet away from the sidewalk yet Good’s statement indicates the fight moved further away from where it ended up. Something is definitely wrong here and it seems that he mentions the sidewalk to help validate GZs version of the story. If there was a ground fight on the sidewalk, some evidence would’ve been found on it. Instead everything was found in the grass going toward the direction of Trayvon’s body. Evidence doesn’t lie. There’s more problems with Good statement.

      1. He didn’t realize TM was a black male until a courageous neighbor came out and shined a flashlight onto his body as Mr. Good cowardly hide at his upstairs window (Listen to his 911 call). It’s impossible to determine who has the lighter skin when you only know the ethnicity of one person. For all Mr. Good knew it could have been two light skinned males out there fighting. And this is only if you assume he realized GZ was light skinned.

      2. Both TM and GZ were fully clothed with TM wearing the lighter clothes. TM had on light tan pants. Under darkness of night TM would actually be the lighter person because of the clothes he was wearing. Good says the person on top had on a dark jacket but apparently he didn’t notice those light tan pants. Looking out into the darkness the light color clothing would have caught his eye not dark clothing. By the way, TMs light tan pants wasn’t publicized in the news like his hoodie was. Is Mr. Good simply going off what was already well known?

      3. On the written statement Good goes from not seeing much and not noticing the person underneath to describing everything about the person underneath including red jacket, light colored shirt, and light skin.

      4. Mr. Good said he looked outside and yelled for them to stop then ran to call 911. On his 911 call he states that someone fired a shot and notice there is no screaming in the background. TM was already dead by the time he got on the phone. This is validation that he caught the tail end of the confrontation and didn’t get to see much.

      5. Good didn’t walk outside. He claim he opened the door and looked outside.

      Sadly a kid gets killed and the police department doesn’t even bother to get written witness statements until almost a month later and only after pressure from the community. That’s not right at all.

      Subplot #3 of 3. On Jennifer Lauer’s infamous 911 call at the 1:30 mark her husband Jeremy can be heard in the background saying “He Warned me he’d shoot’em”. The connection. Jennifer, Jeremy, and Zimmerman were members of the HOA. Apparently GZ, who was tired of them ALWAYS GETTING AWAY, warned the HOA that he was going to shoot the next suspect.

      • Regina Taylor

        I love the way you break the call down, piece by piece. I have seen this comment on multiple sites, and I agree with you one thousand per cent. Premeditated without one doubt. His karma is starting, with the fact that he is supposedly jobless, and homeless, although this may be a ploy, con, for money, and he has now had his bs lawsuit thrown out. There is more to come. Hey killer, “you don’t win, when you play dirty”. Remember this. Thank you again, oldsoldierboy.

        • oldsoldierboy

          Thank you. I greatly appreciate your gratitude and your reply. It took some time and effort to figure this case out and put it into words. If only the police had done the same, Trayvon and his family would’ve gotten a little justice. It’s shame that skin color dictates how much effort law enforcement, the jury, and society will put into a murder case and how they react. Zimmerman was like a fish on a hook when they were questioning him on his whereabouts. The police simply had no desire to reel him in. Instead they cut the line and let him go. Once again thank you for helping me put an end to the lies and smears against this young man.

          • Regina Taylor

            You are welcome, and your comment is so true. Have you ever read about Baye’s Theorem? It is a mathematical, and scientific theory, which talks about a rare/common occurrence, vs a rare/ rare occurrence, probability, vs possibility. Example: What is the possibility, probability, that a 17 yr old teen, walking home from a store, with candy and a drink, on his cell with a friend, turning into a raging murderer, and that of a 28 yr old man, with a 9 mm kel tec, fully loaded, with 1 in the chamber being more commonly the one that would be a killer. Especially with the act of following in his vehicle a total stranger, and then on foot, and what he said on the 911 call. This according to the theory, would be a rare/rare occurrence in the case of Trayvon with a % of 1 in 2000. Compared to his killer, a rare/ common occurrence, with a % of 1 in 25. This theory should be taught to courts, and explained, and applied by juries, in my opinion.

          • oldsoldierboy

            No, I have never heard of this theorem and apparently the Sanford PD hasn’t either. It’s linked in with common sense that’s for sure. The judge and jury should be required to use this as part of their instructions instead of stand your ground. This theorem definitely could’ve been used to help sort through all of Zimmerman’s lies.

          • Regina Taylor

            Yes, it would have been incredibly useful. Law Schools should include this as required study, and add it to their curriculum, ASAP.

    • joba

      what do you mean there are only three scenarios? and you end up with one which satisfies your hypocritical, racist hatred…how convenient…and I bet you want to intimidate me for saying it…

      • oldsoldierboy

        Is this all you got? Sorry but the truth is colorblind.

    • Shelly Walker

      And he had his gun out the whole time.

      • tigger

        LIAR!

        Why would Trayvon went back and attacked a man that had a gun in his hand?

        Why would George have waited till he was on his back on the ground after being struck several times before he shot?

      • oldsoldierboy

        He definitely had it out before he confronted him. Also if Trayvon had ran he probably would’ve asked why are you chasing me not why are you following me. Most in that situation would holler for help as they’re running anyway.

        • JS425

          Why didn’t you let me know it was story time. Just cant face the truth?

          • oldsoldierboy

            One sure sign of a desperate Zimmerman supporter is when they follow you around and reply to comments you have with other people. You’re the 3rd one. Whats wrong? My comment exposes your broke and homeless hero for what he really is. If he’s this important to you please donate. He needs your help. LOL

          • JS425

            I have no reason to be desperate. Just have to say something when I see someone lying out of their ass. GZ is no hero to me but it is a shame that you guys are trying to make TM one. I just have a hard time with making a little wannabe gangster a martyr. Actually disgusting. But hey just shows how classless you are.

          • oldsoldierboy

            Where did you get your class from? A crakerjack box. Since when is pointing out the lies from both sides an attempt to make someone a hero. Trayvon was killed while WALKING home. That doesn’t make him a martyr nor a hero but a innocent victim. I don’t apologize to no one for getting to the truth. Now tell me when you became a saint. Unlike you I don’t let race decide what the truth is or who my hero is. The truth is colorblind.

          • JS425

            They are both minorities so don’t play that race card on me. Hardly just walking home. He was going to prove a point and beat his ass. Seems too many are trying to make him a martyr. Holding marches developing a TM foundation. I am glad white people don’t do that for their trash.

          • oldsoldierboy

            For you it’s about race. That’s why you continue to fight against Trayvon and the truth. The only reason you haven’t made the guy who killed Oulson in the movie theater a hero is because Oulson was white. That’s how trash operates.

          • JS425

            You have no idea who or what I am about. I fight against Trayvon because in no way should he be idolized or honored. He was well on his way to becoming a street thug. The only reason you argue for him is because he is black. Now crawl back under your rock you racist piece of trash.

          • Regina Taylor

        I’m sorry i was born white and that people I’ve never met treated people you’ve never met poorly. Maybe you could get over it and make something of yourself now that you and I have all the same opportunities.

        that’s literally the dumbest thing i’ve every heard. not all white people are racist so stop categorizing all of them. and trying to treat white people how they treated black people doesn’t make you a better person or slavery any better

    • eryche

      Actually, there is freedom of speech and she exercised hers. Along with freedoms come certain consequences. But she wasn’t arrested for what she said, she was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment.

  • Tim

    Killed for looking suspicious? You have got to be joking. Did you miss that whole TM criminally attacked and broke GZ’s nose thing? What a terrible piece of “journalism” above.

    • disgusted

      So a broken nose as a result of not listening to orders, because GZ was told to stop following him, is a reason to shoot and kill someone? He is a coward and obviously so are you. Hide behind your guns, that GZ pulls out on his wife because your not man enough to fight with your fists. I don’t condone violence but I do believe in defending yourself. And if GZ wanted a fight he could have. He made sure that whatever he said was recorded how he wanted it because he is a trigger happy coward who wanted to shoot a black person and that’s all to it. In the end, he will get his punishment from a greater Judge. Not man enough to approach any “thugged” grown men but a boy, walking in the dark, with a canned drink and skittles.

      • norcald

        You’re delusional if you believe his broken nose was the “result of not listening to orders”. Following someone isn’t a crime. Beating someone to a pulp, and slamming their head into the pavement is a crime. At that point, GZ had every right to defend himself. What if the tables were turned, and TM beat GZ to death that night? Chances are, we wouldn’t even know about it, and TM would probably never have been caught. You don’t like GZ, but that doesn’t mean he is a racist, and it certainly doesn’t mean he committed a crime, let alone murder.

          It doesn’t matter. The police is the law.. we have to listen to them when they give us regular civilians orders. The cops told GZ to stop pursuing TM and he STILL continued which is kind of premeditated from that point on….so that voids any type of debate… automatically cause they told him not to continue following him. If they told GZ to stop following him then everything single thing that happens after that is a result of him NOT following simple instructions. If he would’ve listened that entire incident wouldn’t have happened. Not to mention TM was unarmed, GZ was already frustrated of the previous break ins and TM was under his suspicion. Also months prior to that incident GZ carried his gun to the door just to receive shipment from a UPS delivery.. it’s called a peephole. That showed he was a very paranoid individual. Oh yes.. he also pulled out a gun on his girlfriend AFTER the TM incident… so what type of person are we dealing with? Someone who is simply paranoid, trigger happy, and acts without thinking. It has nothing to do with race though. He just had no pursuing him. So TM defended himself. That’s all.

      • Tim

        Your “argument” is based on emotion, not law. The law says it is a criminal act to physically assault someone. The same law says it is ok to use your lawfully concealed weapon if you feel your life is endangered. Discharging your weapon after someone, regardless of age, after having your nose broken and having someone on top of you punching you is a lawful act as agreed to by the jury. And what orders do you reference? I heard nothing on the actual 911 tapes where GZ ordered anything. I’m a coward? How so? Ever think that GZ didn’t want a fight at all? If someone wanted to fight, why call 911? The evidence (you should refer to that once in a while) shows he was assaulted without premeditation. Don’t bring emotion to a educated debate. You’ll lose every time.

        • MA

          TM had every right to beat GZ ass!!!! I mean TM 17 and some fat ass pld fuck following him at night. Why follow him? TM wasn’t beother that fat ass GZ so GZ should have got his ass beat the way he did. If he didn’t want to fight or get his head banged in he should have took his ass back home and and exercised.

          • tigger

            So now you think it is OK to assault some one if you think they are following you, but only if they are white.

            You are a racist.

          • Tim

            Thank you for your well written response MA. You writing skills clearly display your educational level and the reasoning behind your response. Actually TM had NO RIGHT to assault anyone according to the law. The actual correct statement would have been if TM didn’t want to die that night HE should have “took his ass back home”.

          • JS425

            And GZ had every right to shoot that punk. You cant attack someone just because you feel like it.

      • G Wald

        that canned drink and skittles was for making an illegal drink with codeine. TM went around looking for fights and wanting to hurt people, he trained in martial arts. all of this is what TM himself posted on social media. He he had been suspended a few times from school already not to mention a lot of other stuff that surrounds the night in question but all ignorant ass people want to believe is what the media tells you and not what the facts are, its just another ploy to keep us all at odds with each other. Just remember, united we stand, divided we fall. This had nothing to do with race until the media turned it that way.

    • moronsprocreate

      Did no one read the articles that were posted about Martin being a drug user and constantly getting into fights? No one was there but the two people that were there. So everyone wants to have an opinion and none of them matter. Blacks will always be against white people no matter what and that’s why this is an issue. Zimmerman was always described as being half Hispanic and half Caucasian. Why is that important what race he is? People want to talk about how racist white people are but what about the others who hate on white people for no reason? and let’s not forget about all the bs shootings in Chicago being done by who? If you don’t like stereotypes then stop living up to them. The world would be a better place .

          Naomi… I’m African American myself and I must say that this comment is ignorant. Blacks in today’s time are all given an equal opportunity in the USA. It just depends on what you do with your time. WE have the same opportunities as every other ethnicity. To apply and be employed at jobs, get an high level education (college degrees) own a business, corporation, become successful, become heroes, idols and role models for the youth ( professional athletes) and so much more like anyone else could. So please do not live with that type of mentality because it’s not right. STOP holding on to the past. THIS IS 2014. If you don’t push yourself to be the best that you can in whatever you do in this world do not blame an entire race for it. That has nothing to do with today’s era…. AT ALL.

  • Macdaddycruz

    All I can say if someone was on top of me beating me up and slaming my head to the pavement I would too put a cap in their ass. It wouldn’t matter what race they are.

    • stopblaming

      If you start a confrontation you should be prepared to get retaliated against. But dont pull a gun when the tables turn on a situation you started.

      • norcald

        How did GZ start the physical confrontation? He followed TM, that’s it. That gives TM the right to beat GZ? It doesn’t. TM shouldn’t have died that night, but it was his actions that led to it, not GZ’s.

        • naomi lotts

          He started it by not staying in his truck as told. That’s why the rental cop is broke and homeless now!! Maybe if his pathetic parents would have taught him how to follow directions then none of this would have happened!

          • norcald

            The civilian dispatcher commented that he didn’t need to follow. They cannot “command” other civilians to do anything. Also, if GZ only wanted to kill TM that night, why did he call 911 at all?

        • stopblaming

          well you go ahead and follow somebody… (regardless of color) and see what you get.. So what are you going to do if somebody you dont know is stalking you in a dimly lit location?

          • norcald

            Following isn’t a crime. If someone wants to follow me in a dimly lit location, then I’m going to go into my house or whichever destination I’m attempting to reach. I am certainly not going to engage the person in a physical altercation, simply b/c they’re following me. Are you saying you’d attack the person?

        • Regina Taylor

          There was no evidence of a head bashing and the beating that the killer claimed. His minor insignificant injuries, as described by the medical examiner, did not fit his stories. There was NO DNA on either one of the teen’s hands, his cuffs, or sleeves of his hoodie, that belonged to the killer. No, blood, no skin cells, no sweat, and no saliva, None. His story of all the bleeding, and head bashing was a lie, that even Serino did not believe. The trial was a sham, a joke, and justice was not served. His Karma is now beginning with the throwing out of court his bs lawsuit against NBC. He can appeal all he wants, it won’t change a thing. His parents won’t win a penny from Ms. Barr either, because they are liars too. They left their home 2 full weeks before she tweeted their address. Daddy z was on national TV doing an interview on 3/15/12, saying this very thing. Ms. Barr tweeted the address on 3/29/12. A pack of liars, the father,mother, and both brothers. Piss on all of them. They say they believed in the system, okay, they got their justice. They need to go away, all of them. It has been over 2 years since this teen’s life was taken. ENOUGH.

          • norcald

            No evidence other than the cuts, blood and contusions on GZs head, and the offensive wounds found on TMs hands. You clearly don’t like GZ, and that is clouding your judgement. The reason that teens life has ended, is solely due to his own actions. Time to put blame where the blame lies. I do agree that the trial was a sham and a joke, b/c it never should have happened.

          • Regina Taylor

            I don’t know gz to like him or not. That is not the issue. The issue, once again were his lies, to keep from going to prison, and the cops, state attorney Wolfinger, the defense, the city of Sanford, all being racists. Every one of them. The prosecution threw the case, on their side, because they never chose this case. It was forced on them by the Govenor, to appease Trayvon’s family and the community. It was a total injustice to them, as it always is. The injuries were minor, and did not fit the killer’s lies. The blame belongs on the killer. Did Trayvon not have a right to defend himself, from a grown man with a gun? To you, and those like you, the answer is no. Why????

          • norcald

            When , exactly, was TM ever trying to defend himself? Comeing back to blindside someone that is following you is not defensive, it’s aggressive.

          • Regina Taylor

            Once again, there was no evidence from anyone, except the killer that Trayvon came out of the darkness, or was it the bushes to ask him that bs question from the 90’s. “Do you have a problem, homie”? And then according to the killer his reply was, “no I don’t have a problem”, which sent Trayvon into a murdeous rage. Give me a break. The killer, once he got out of the safety of his car, became the aggressive one. Period. If he was so…….fearful, why would he be so…..stupid to get out of that car. Again, give me a break. Trayvon had every right in this world to defend himself from a creepy stranger, in the dark, following him, in a strange neighborhood.

          • norcald

            So, you’re either saying that GZ attacked TM, or that he followed and shot TM without any altercation. If that’s the case, then why did GZ call 911 to begin with?

          • Regina Taylor

            No. What I feel is that mr. wannabe cop, tried in some way to detain him, and when Trayvon started yelling for help, he shot him then. It is just that simple. ” These a-holes, they always get away”. He called 911, like he did dozens of times before, because he is a paranoid bully with a gun. Creepy as he!!.

          • norcald

            Well, there it is. What you feel. You keep asking people to prove what happened that night, when all of your accounts are just your emotional thoughts. The fact is, no one will ever know what happened, exactly. I highly doubt that TM acted like the victim that night, at any point. Either way, I’m done with this string.

  • Macdaddycruz

    The media took it too far to be honest. It brainwashed everyone into thinking Zimmerman killed trayvon because he was black. FALSE !

    • oldsoldierboy

      A detailed look at this case confirms that Zimmerman killed Trayvon because he had become frustrated that the bad guys always got away. His call was a premeditated play for murder.

      • norcald

        I don’t know what details you’re referring to, but the details actually show that he was attacked by TM, and then defended himself.

        • naomi lotts

  • daleh33

    With every story about Martin that has pics, they should also post the pics that were taken down of him holding a gun, with his gold grill when he was clearly older than the pics of him when he was 13 that they keep posting. I guess I should stop telling the gangbangers walking around that they are nothing but punks afraid to fight someone with their hands and 1 on 1 huh? I might get arrested for verbal abusing of a minority.

    • naomi lotts

      make sure you share that advice with the gangsters who go shooting up places and blaming it on their “mental illnesses”.

      • daleh33

        Oh, they are weak individuals as well. I am tired of the government blaming the gun owners that only have them to protect their homes and family. I was born and raised in Chicago when there was conflicts with young men, we would meet in the forest preserves or open fields and one on one using bare hands would settle it. No they drive around shooting at anything that moves hoping to hit their target. Much like the cowards that go into schools taking out their issues on innocent people that have nothing to do with it.

    • TRUTH

      THE PROBLEMS PEOPLE KEEP BRINGING UP PAST ISSUES EVEN IF TRAYVON WAS THE LEADER OF A DRUG RING WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT HAPPENED ON THAT DAY AND NOT THE DAY BEFORE..IF A SERIAL KILLER WAS SHOT TODAY WHEN HE DID NOTHING REALLY YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO KILL HIM FOR HIS PAST CRIMES. JUST LIKE YOU CAN BE FOUND GUILTY FOR KILLING YOUR HUSBAND DAYS AFTER THE ABUSE. EVERYDAY IS A NEW DAY AND PEOPLE CHANGE. I WAS A BAD KID IN HIGHSCHOOL, MY TEACHERS SAID I WOULD NEVER GRADUATE OR GO TO COLLEGE. I AM NOW 23 ABOUT TO GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE HAVE A JOB AND NO KIDS. AS KIDS LIKE SOME OF MY TEACHERS SAID, WE ALL GO THROUGH CHANGES AND DEAL DIFFERENTLY SOME WILL STAY IN A CORNER BE ANTI-SOCIAL AND STUDY THEY ASSES OFF SOME OF US CHOOSE THE WRONG PATH AND YES AM BLACK WHO HAD VERY LOVING HANDS PARENTS I JUST CHOOSE MY WAYS, BUT I GREW UP AND CHANGED SO HAVE MY FREINDS SOME GRADUATED FROM THE BEST SCHOOL WE ALL WENT COLLEGE AND DID BETTER THAN SOME OF THE STUDENTS THE TEACHERS SAID HAD A GREAT FUTURES. MY POINT IS YOU NEVER KNOW THIS KID COULD HAVE GROWN TO BE A GOOD CITIZEN AND PLEASE JUDGE HIM FOR WHAT HAPPENED ON THAT DAY NOT HIS PAST

            @James,
            The bad guy died that night, he asked for and received the justice he ended with. His parents should be guilty of abandonment when they let their son turn to a street gang for direction, they gave their son away long before he assaulted Zimmerman.

          • James Roan

            No the bad guy got away with something that could be have been COMPLETELY avoided. He was given specific instructions on NOT to follow TM. He did it anyway so anything that happens after that point is his fault.

          • Regina Taylor

            What street gang? Does this gang have a name? Did you know Tracy and Sabryna personally? Did you witness this abandonment? And when you did witness this, did you report them to CPS? Your assumptions are nauseating. The killer is a born liar and a sociopath. I wonder where that blames lays. No DNA, equals No Assault. Even his bff frank taaffe has recently changed his tune, and said the killer did racially and criminally profile Trayvon. He went on the record and said that if it had been a white teen the killer would not have called 911, nor followed him.

          • JCWS1

            Lady,
            I’ve been following the case ever since the news broke that the revRUNT Jesse and Al Sharpton were traveling on tax payers dollars to stir up racial hatred in Florida. Where were you when this assault went down ?
            The jury found Zimmerman NOT GUILTY so live with their decision and stop trying to stir up racial hatred between blacks and everyone else.

          • Regina Taylor

            Where I was is not the issue. You sound like a parrot, repeating things that are lies and demonization of a kid, that once again, you did not know, nor his parents, from a can of paint. Nothing about their lives had one thing to to do with the killing. Trayvon was not supposed to be on trial, only his killer, and while the jury rendered their verdict, the kid is still dead, and you continue villianize some one you did not know. Floriduh did not any help from Al or Jesse to show their racial hatred.

          • JCWS1

            Lady,
            If all you have is name calling and assumption then future comments prove useless. Trayvon was a gang banger who tried to ground and pound a smaller person while he was high on a mixture of codene and watermelon flavored Arizona tea, with a third ingredient to enhance the codene effect. His internal organs showed sizable damage from this mixture which induces a radical high when ingested.
            Zimmerman was trying to slow the rash of recent break-ins within HIS gated community that Trayvon did not reside in.
            It was a bad situation for all concerned.
            Trayvon assaulted another person who happened to be armed for his own protection, otherwise Zimmerman would be in jail today.

          • Regina Taylor

            Like I said, you are nothing but a parrot. There is no factual proof of anything you are saying as truth. The last break in was 6 months prior to the killing. The killer was not a cop, not now or ever. He over stepped his boundries as a volunteer, and he is the one that caused a life to be lost, because of his lack of control. Trayvon’s autopsy showed nothing at all to do with codeine. If it had, it would have also been in his toxicology report, and it was not. That “gated community”, was not “His”, unless he paid for it. He just rented some space there. And, you are right, zimmerman should be in a jail cell today.

          • robbie jay

            Read the autopsy report again–mucho damage from purple drank. Neither Tarvon nor Fruit rented property in Sanford. Fruit’s ho rented there.

  • Rubylee

    A few months before Zimmerman murdered Trayvon he was home and heard a noise outside. He opened his front door with gun in hand, ready for trouble.
    It was daylight. The noise was the UPs man leaving a package.

    Fast forward to the night Zimmerman exited his truck to follow Trayvon. Is it reasonable to believe he left that truck on a dark rainy night with his gun in his holster in his back hip when he believes there is a criminal in his neighborhood ? No it is not.

    Trayvon was defending himself against the bully with the gun! There is no doubt about it!

    • Kanna-Chan

      It’s already been established that Martin attacked Zimmerman first. Even most blacks don’t deny that. Instead, they decided to play the race card.

      • Rubylee

        Nobody saw who started the fight.
        Even if Trayvon hit first it could very well be that he had a gun pointed at him.
        Softie AKA George Zimmerman had no problem answering his front door with gun in hand.
        And it was the UPs man!

If Zimmerman was shot by his own gun which has happened to cops trying to arrest blacks; then a new story would emerge.

        • Regina Taylor

          Trayvon was not a drop out. He was on suspension. And, it does not matter what the killer” thought”, he was wrong, and he was not just some white guy. He was a paranoid wannebe with a gun, on psychotropic drugs, that all had side effects, which included paranoia, hallucinations, and aggression. What could possibly go wrong. If……..is just that, a big if. There was no evidence that Trayvon went for the gun, except the killer’s self serving lies.

        There was no forensic evidence that established this at all. A few minor scratches and no evidence of a broken nose, and a cartoon is not real proof. I don’t know what black people you got this from, because this is not true. Most figured out that the lack of DNA on Trayvon’s hands, said that the killer lied about the head bashing. NO DNA, no blood, no sweat, no skin cells, and no saliva, not only not on his hands, but not on his clothing either. But the prosecution was pathetic. They threw the case, and the jury was rogue. The defense was on TV every other day before the trial demonizing and villianizing Trayvon in the court of public opinion. Then they set up the website and it got even worse. This was the worse injustice since Emmit Till. Karma is a b….., though, and it won’t be as long as it has been for the killer. It is just getting started.

      Ruby,
      Stop playing that pathetic “race card”. You only show your ignorance.

      • Rubylee

        Oh, you can’t stand the truth about Zimmerman can you?
        I bet you wouldn’t be defending him if Trayvon was a white teen.
        You’re can’t come up with any comment that makes any sense. !
        What an idiot. No wonder you defend a murderer!

  • BABOSO

    I would have said the same thing. These obviously said this in a fit of very justifiable anger. These little hoodlums have no respect for anyone. I’m glad they were brought to tears over it. They probably should be in jail. And TM probably wasn’t as innocent as his family would have you believe. Kid had a history already. Was not exactly an angel. While George is a piece of trash, Little Hoody Boy still probably did threaten him and he had a right to defend himself. Sorry Kobe and others.

    I was under the impression that the First Amendment gives the right of free speech. If I were that woman, I’d sue that police department for everything they have. And, of course, the boys weren’t arrested for actual disorderly conduct for throwing trash in front of her door. When it’s a racial situation between black and white, the blacks can do anything they want and they are not held accountable. So much for equality!

    • jrusse18

      Today I want you to go outside and threaten two children and see if you get arrested.

    Once again the WORDS of a white person are worse than the ACTIONS of a black person. When will this madness end?

    Evidently, there’s no free speech on this website, either. My comments must have been deleted because they weren’t politically correct. So much for a public forum!

  • Rubylee

    Don’t complain if someone follows Zimmerman or his family or his defenders !
    Oh, BTW, Zimmerman has fists too, but the bully chose a gun !

    • JCWS1

      @Rubylee,
      Trayvon acted like a hard ash to a smaller person on a dark night. The smaller guy defended himself from a beat-down and survived. The assailant (Trayvon) chose his destiny by trying to go thru life fighting, until he met a man with a superior weapon.
      This young boy was no saint, so don’t try to paint that picture today.
      Trayvon ended up exactly where he intended to be. Dead by violent means.

      • TRUTH

        JCWS1 HE WAS NO SAINT LIKE MANY 17 YR OLD AND IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT RACE, AT THE END OF THE DAY HE WAS KILLED BY GROWN ASS MAN FOR NO REASON.

        • JCWS1

          @truth ?
          “For no reason” ?
          Try assault and battery, or attempted murder for starters.
          You show such a lack of common sense that any further conversation with you is pointless.

  • $ L @ Y .

    nobody knows exactly what happened the night Trayvon Martin was killed, himself and George Zimmerman. Martin could’ve actually tried to fight Zimmerman or Zimmerman could’ve killed him because he didn’t like black people, either we will never know for sure. So stop actually as if you were there watching the whole incident unfold. Some people say in was an unnecessary murder, while other could say it was self defense. Either way, Martin is now unfortunately dead, while Zimmerman is a free man. And half the people on protesting about Zimmerman being in prison for Martin’s murder are just bandwagoners. Before you start preaching about what you think you know happened that night, stop and think. “I wasn’t there so i truly don’t know.

    • Rubylee

      I wasn’t there but I use common sense.

      GZ goes to his front door with gun in hand because he hears a noise….
      It’s daylight…. it’s the UPs man.

      Months later he leaves his truck on a dark and rainy night to follow his suspect . Unreasonable to believe he had that gun holstered in the back hip.

      Trayvon was threatened by the creepy stranger and was fighting for his life.

      No doubt George Zimmerman got away with murder.

        • Rubylee

          Use your head kid !

        • Regina Taylor

          Prove that he was casing the neighborhood on a Sunday at dinnertime, when most folks are at home, without anything but some candy and and some juice and his cell phone. You sound like a straight up idiot.

        Absolutely No doubt RubyLee,,no doubt at all.

  • John Henry

    Trayvon Martin, like Obama, seems to get a free pass from reality. So when you accept that these supporters cannot be reasoned with there’s really no point listening to them anymore. Their minds are closed to the truth and they like it that way. Reminds me of something from the old Twilight Zone series.

    • eryche

      Martin got a free pass?????

      • JCWS1

        Martin was released from having to grow old in the ghetto. He chose his destiny and his parents are the cause of his fatal outcome. Now they are profiting from his death while when he was alive they couldn’t find time to be parents.

    • TRUTH

      YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIKE OBAMA, BUT DON’T COMPARE HIM TO A POOR CHILD WHO WAS KILLED FOR NO REASON… A WHITE CO-WORKER TOLD ME LAST WEEK HE HATES WHITE PEOPLE CAUSE THEY ARE THE MOST RACIST PEOPLE I TOLD HIM NOT TO JUDGE PEOPLE THE SAME BUT EVERYTIME I GO ON THE INTERNET IT SEEMS TO BE TRUE. IF Y’ALL ARE BOTHERED BY US YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE AROUND US BUT STOP HIDING BEHIND THE INTERNET AND TALKING SHIT YOU WOULDN’T SAY IN PERSON… Y’ALL PRESSED… NO WONDER ALL Y’ALL SQUATTING, USING LIP PLUM, TANNING AND SURGERY CAUSE Y’ALL LACKING AND STAY HATING FOR NO EFFING REASON WHEN WE STAY AWAY FROM Y’ALL

    Why are they throwing trash on her property? They SHOULD be arrested.

    • jrusse18

      Not her property. It was an apartment building that she did not own and you also don’t know how much trash it was. Should people get arrested for throwing a single wad of paper? You don’t have the information to make a judgement so don’t.

  • Alan House

    What blacks really should be worried about is all this pandering to illegals and the millions the dems are trying to make citizens out of. Do you seriously remember the massive Cuban influx in the sixties? All the blacks doing hotel service work were fired because the cubans worked for 2/3rds of their pay….didn’t get and didn’t ask for overtime pay. There were actually several riots down in Miami because blacks were getting displaced everywhere. Customers were quite happy with black servors and even black managers because back then they didn’t have an attitude and were accomodating. Now the Cubans RULE the service industry down there….hardly a black to be found except maybe stocking food shelves at night. Taxis > cuban ; concierge > cuban; pharmacy tech > cuban; waitors > cuban; Motel owners > cuban. do I have to go one? Their attitude? Authoritative and aloof, one cashier even tried to take a cuban customer in back of me until I objected. They have their empire now and will probably never be broken. Multiply that by 300 cities with the Mexicans….and you are just sitting by watching your future fizzle.

    WHY is this nigr still in the news?? Why is he special? thousands of kids — white, black, Hispanic, etc., get killed every day, by every walk of life including cops, and no one hears about it. But because this one’s parents happened to have a little money to cause a public outcry, everything in the world becomes about him. His face is everywhere. This isn’t part of any civil rights movement, it’s about who has money and who doesn’t.

    “…[shot] for looking suspicious…” Seriously? Zim shot him because Trayvon was slamming his head into the ground, you ultraliberal zilch. This is why the media blows. You can’t give an unbiased piece. It’s either every black person is a criminal, or every white person is a racist. You can’t win. Specifically YOU can’t write.

    When Martin lost Zimmerman and made it safely home, he should have stayed there. Re-crossing the neighborhood to confront Zimmerman was stupid. Committing felonious assault and battery was deadly. Those aren’t the action of a frightened little boy running for his life from the bogeyman. A frightened little boy stays home and calls the police.
    ———————————————————
    GIRLFRIEND: …He said, this man is still watching from a car. So he about to run from the back. I told him, go to his dad’s house. Run to his dad’s house.

    GIRLFRIEND: Yeah. So he said he was about to run from the back, so the next that I hear, he just run. I can hear that the wind blowing.
    PROSECUTOR: So you could tell he was running at that time? OK. And then what happened?
    GIRLFRIEND: Then he said, he lost him.

    GIRLFRIEND: So he lost him. He was breathing hard. And by the sound of his voice, his voice kind of changed.

    GIRLFRIEND: He said he had lost him and he was breathing hard and I told him ‘Keep running.’
    PROSECUTOR: So Trayvon said he started walking because he thought he had lost the guy?
    GIRLFRIEND: Yeah.
    PROSECUTOR: OK.
    GIRLFRIEND: I said, ‘Keep running.’ He said he ain’t gonna run. ‘Cause he said he is right by his father’s house.

    Truth…the higher the percentage of blacks the higher the incidence of gun deaths. For example, in Washington DC, which has the highest percentage of black population (in excess of 50%), the death rate by gun is 5 times that of the worst state, Maryland. And, in direct contrast to the anti gun lobby – Washington DC has the lowest gun ownership as a percentage of the population (3.6%). The highest gun ownership as a percentage of the population, Wyoming (59.7%), has 1.5 gun deaths per 100,000 citizens compared to 458 per 100,000 citizens in Washington DC. That’s a rate of gun death that’s 300 times more with 16 times less guns. Maybe the Black leaders (Sharpton and Jackson) and the bleeding heart anti-gun liberals and liberal politicians need to clean up their own back yards before putting their “opinions” into effect. The facts will set you free.

    • Agent__86

      Leftists are not bothered by gun related deaths unless they involve law abiding citizens killing criminals in the act. Leftists abhor the idea of self defense.

    Zimmerman calls Non Emergency to report a “suspicious” person ”
    Zimmerman arms himself with a deadly weapon to follow his “suspect”

    It wasn’t an emergengy for the police to get Trayvon, but it was an emerency for
    Zimmerman to get his “suspect ”

    Zimmerman wanted to show his neighbors and that dumb Sanford Police dept what a hero he was.

    He failed.
