What if it was TRAVIS Martin instead?
Posted 7/20/2013 2:08:00 PM

The shock and outgrage following the Trayvon Martin verdict doesn't surprise me. Here was a case of a young black male, shot to death for seemingly no reason at all. A young man, for all intents and purposes, minding his own business as he walked back home after going out for Skittles and iced tea at halftime of a basketball game. He is perceived as "acting weird" and "up to no good".  Really? Let's say rather than Trayvon Martin, the "suspect" is 17-year-old TRAVIS Martin. Let's make him out to be a white, C- student in school, average build and athletic ability, and few years ago, got in trouble for breaking into a car. TRAVIS's parents are good, hard-working people, and everyone in the Martin family is well-known by the "townies".  Would TRAVIS Martin, a local white kid that everyone knew be treated the same way? Would George Zimmerman get wet confronting TRAVIS Martin, or would it not be worth it over a white kid? Would Zimmerman even bother calling 911 over TRAVIS Martin? If you listen to the 911 tapes, Zimmermanis told NOT to follow Trayvon, but did anyway. And we know how the story ended. I believe that George Zimmerman had no intention of killing Trayvon Martin that night, but when the altercation escalated, and Zimmerman found himself on the business end of an ass kicking, he pulled the gun and shot Trayvon. It's a tragic story no matter what angle you tell it from, but did it have to end that way? Really?

    Interesting you picked Travis Martin to be white . George Zimmerman is Hispanic , So looks like to me your following the liberal line the only people are racist are white people. " he pulled the gun and shot Trayvon. " Sounds like the jury did not hear that one! Like there was no struggle, there was no confrontation, there was no punch to the face of Zimmerman. He just shot him ! Thank god you were not on the jury. I think your the racist, Or just trying to appease your liberal audience.
    Burt aren't you being a little bias ?

      @jamesk_6511 James,
      It is you who needs to get your facts right. The police report, the hospital, the doctor all reported injuries to his head. They were facts that were introduced at the trial. So you have the bias , not Bert.
      Please stop watching Fox News or listening to 101.5 Radio, they are costing you many brain cells........
