Mark Cuban apologizes to the family of Trayvon Martin family but stands by his remarks when talking about race and prejudices. He was a long supporter of Donald Sterling so he is setting the stage to soften the blow on his Jewish brother.
“In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn’t consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that. Beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and the substance of the interview,” Cuban wrote. “I think that helping people improve their lives, helping people engage with people they may fear or not understand, and helping people realize that while we all may have our prejudices and bigotries, we have to learn that it’s an issue that we have to control. that it’s part of my responsibility as an entrepreneur to try to solve it.?

The fact that anyone showed up to see this coward is shocking enough, but this is America where killing an innocent teenager makes you some sort of de facto celebrity. Is this guy really devoid of any conscious at all? Does he not think that he hurts the family of Trayvon Martin every time he pulls a stunt like this? Then he mysteriously wonders why people want to see him dead.
Glad to see the Breakfast Club tackle this subject and to interview Ron Davis who has suffered through this tragedy of his son Jordan Davis being murdered. One thing of note is that this controversial Stand Your Ground law was signed into law by Jeb Bush. In terms of the prosecution in this case who also handled the George Zimmerman debacle, Michael Dunn jailhouse letters prove that he is a racist and behooves me that the prosecutor never moved to submit this into evidence.
Since when did it become commonplace to use deadly force when it comes to dealing with our young people?
George Zimmerman looking for sympathy in an interview with Chris Cuomo from the general public because of all the so-called difficulties after ruthlessly killing Trayvon Martin.
After hearing the shocking and disturbing news that George Zimmerman is an actual celebrity and is going to have a so-called celebrity boxing match , news broke that The Game stepped up to the plate and was quickly dismissed by the promoters. Various reports then came out that Zimmerman wanted to fight Kanye West because of him constantly attacking the paparazzi who he deemed innocent and defenseless. Now we have confirmed that DMX will step in the ring to fight Zimmerman. This is bad on all fronts and Hot 97’s The Realness morning segment declares why this fight CAN NOT HAPPEN.
This can’t be life, but since it is I just don’t know what to say about people actually willing to buy art from this man.

Zimmerman’s blue-and-black painting of an American flag features the inspiring patriotic text “God, One Nation, With Liberty and Justice For All,” is 18″ x 24″, and was made with donated household latex paint. Like, for walls.

George Zimmerman will not be charged in a domestic dispute last month reported by his girlfriend, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Seminole-Brevard State Attorney Phil Archer said there is not enough cooperation from Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, to go forward.

The nightmare continues.

According to ABC News, Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, who called police on him in Florida for breaking her stuff and brandishing a weapon, wants to drop the charges.
And her reason: so that she can take George back of course.
Here is the recently released 911 call from George Zimmerman’s girlfriend who called authorities to report a domestic dispute. Honestly did this girl really think he was a good choice a boyfriend?
Is anyone surprised this low-life got arrested for domestic violence? I hope the jurors in his murder trial are haunted forever for letting this pig off for the murder of Trayvon Martin.

George Zimmerman has been arrested and was en route to the Seminole County Jail, according to Sheriff Don Eslinger.
It’s not clear what happened or what crime he’s accused of committing, but just before 1:30 p.m., Eslinger confirmed that Zimmerman had been arrested today and was being driven to the county jail in Sanford.
He said more information would be available shortly.
WESH-Channel 2 reported that Zimmerman was accused of domestic violence by a girlfriend.
The Sheriff’s Office, in a short news release, reported that the agency had arrested Zimmerman after being called to a disturbance on Topfield Court in western Seminole County near Apopka.

Another black man killed by police, this is all too common in this country, and we don’t see a peep of this from the mainstream media.
Jonathan Ferrell, 24, crashed his car early Saturday morning, and approached a home, looking for help. The residents, unsure of who was outside, called the police. When the officers arrived, Ferell ran towards them, only to be shot several times. Ferell, who might have been badly shaken up by the accident, died on the scene.
“It was a pretty serious accident,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe told CNN. Ferell had to climb out the back window of the car.
The officer who shot Ferell, Randall Kerrick, was charged with voluntary manslaughter on Saturday, a felony charge that means the killing was done in self-defense. Police were called to the scene when a homeowner noticed Ferell outside.
Don Lemon is backing the dumb and racist comments by Bill O’ Reilly which are surface at best in his quest to scold the black community into greatness.
Seems to me very strange how this guy has been proclaiming that his family wants left alone but has all over the media. He wants to be a Fox News talking head and will probably get that position with other cases of when race and violence and intersect.
Sad thing is more people will probably contribute to his defense fund if this story turns out to fact.
Today the State released Witness #9’s Statements along with Mr. Zimmerman’s phone calls from jail in response to the Court’s July 13 order.
In her statements, Witness #9, who is George Zimmerman’s cousin, alleges that Mr. Zimmerman inappropriately touched her beginning when she was 6 and Mr. Zimmerman was almost 8, and that it continued on occasion until she was 16 and Mr. Zimmerman was 17.
The defense moved to block the public release of Witness #9’s statement in a motion filed on June 18, 2012 contending “The content of this statement is not relevant to the issues of this case, and it would not be admissible in the State’s case in chief.”
The motion further contends that this irrelevant statement should be withheld from public dissemination because of the substantial risk that public disclosure will lead to widespread hostile publicity which would substantially impair the Defendant’s fair trial rights, and would pose a serious threat to the administration of justice.

I commend him for having the courage to do this much needed video.
While the world was in a frenzy about the antics of Nicki Minaj and Hot 97, George Zimmerman was thrown back in jail for lying about finances.
Justice served, at least concerning him being on the street.

ORLANDO — A Florida judge on Friday revoked the bond for George Zimmerman, saying he misrepresented financial status.
He has 48 hours to surrender.
I think he eloquently explains his stance on the case in addition to him drawing this illustration.
“I have followed Trayvon’s case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a brother or son and would want to see a thorough investigation into the killing of an unarmed person. In my portrait I wanted to emphasize Trayvon’s humanity as well as the public outcry for a just investigation into his death.”

In the last few days information has surfaced concerning this case and here is the murdered Trayvon Martin right before he mets George Zimmerman.
The surreal images show Martin, whom many of us have never seen alive but have grown to care for deeply, dressed in a gray hoodie, tan pants and white sneakers. He is casually paying for his Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea, before attempting to make it home to his father. Moments later, he would encounter George Zimmerman, 28, who thought he looked “suspicious.”
After being a couple of quiet weeks concerning this case we get news that House Dems want to disband the Stand Your Ground law.
via Washington Times
House Democrats said Tuesday they will offer an amendment to push to overturn stand-your-ground self-defense laws in states like Florida.
The amendment, which would withhold some grants from states that have such laws, will come as part of the House’s debate on the Commerce Department spending bill.
I guess the new lawyers pulled this move to try and humanize him and to send a message to any jurors that he is a nice guy and really did not mean to do this. Check out video below:
George Zimmerman stunned a Florida court today by taking the stand and apologizing to the parents of Trayvon Martin, who were sitting in the courtroom during Zimmerman’s bond hearing.”I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am.
Now let’s hope a jury does not free this dude in the verdict in this trial.
George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the special prosecutor for the case announced. He is currently being held in custody after turning himself in to authorities.

SANFORD — George Zimmerman’s attorneys withdrew from the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting case Tuesday, saying they have lost contact with their client, who began making moves without consulting them.The lawyers said Zimmerman called special prosecutor Angela Corey on Tuesday, a highly unusual move for the target of an investigation who is being represented by a lawyer.Zimmerman made the call despite not having returned calls from his attorneys, Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig, since Sunday, Sonner said.
Crowd Chant’s “I’m Wearing a Hoodie, Don’t Shoot Me.”
What kills me is Zimmerman saying he is so surprised how much attention and outrage has happened with killing of Trayvon, I guess he feels that this should be just swept under the rug and forgotten. More below:
Attorney Craig Sonner said the public is only hearing part of the story, and when all the facts come out, it will be clear that Zimmerman acted in self defense. A grand jury is scheduled to begin hearing the case April 10.”George Zimmerman suffered a broken nose, and had an injury to the back of his head, he was attacked by Trayvon Martin on that evening,” Sonner said. “This was a case of self defense.” FULL STORY HERE…
Really respect these dues for this.
Finally some words from POTUS about the assassination of Trayvon Martin.
President Obama spoke in highly personal terms on Friday about how the shooting in Florida of a 17-year-old black youth named Trayvon Martin had affected him, saying that “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
The comments by Mr. Obama were his first on the explosive case in which George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, has claimed self defense after shooting Mr. Martin several weeks ago. The case has generated outrage about the state’s so-called Stand Your Ground law.
