Zimmerman charged with stalking Trayvon film investigator

Original Article Link to Yahoo! News: Zimmerman charged with stalking Trayvon film investigator
Associated Press Associated Press - May 7, 2018
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say George Zimmerman threatened a private investigator working for a documentary filmmaker.

Court records show Zimmerman was issued a summons for a May 30 arraignment on a charge of misdemeanor stalking.

A sheriff's report says the investigator contacted Zimmerman in September on behalf of Michael Gasparro, who is making a documentary on Trayvon Martin. The series is being produced by rapper Jay-Z.

Court records show the private investigator received 55 phone calls, 67 text messages, 36 voicemails and 27 emails from Zimmerman in December.

The records don't list an attorney for Zimmerman.

Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic. The former neighborhood watch volunteer fatally shot the 17-year-old Martin in 2012 in the central Florida city of Sanford. He was acquitted of all charges. Martin was black.

@Liam He's already proven he's capable of murder

Daniel - 39 minutes ago
@AW No he got off because of a bad "stand your ground law" written by ALEC which only requires you to be afraid - not demonstrate actual cause. The bogus law has not been applied equally with regard to race. Only meant to be used in cases where white people are afraid of black people - so they can shoot them with no repercussions.

Daniel - 44 minutes ago
@R Except that Martin was living with his uncle IN that subdivision. 911 told him to stand down. Previous history - before Martin - had 49 calls to 911 within 6 months. Who does that? Bout time this wannabe got put away.

If you knew you were innocent and that the mainstream media played up that incident for all that it was worth, you'd be doing the same. He was merely looking into a suspicious person walking through a subdivision who no business being there. Martin reacted to his legitmate questioning in a rude and threatening way, thus the incident occurred. End of story.

Not to mention his Ex wife and plenty of Ex girlfriends have called the Police on him saying they feared for their lives and he got away with all of that and stalking a white guy who went to jail for pulling a gun on Zimmerman. He also had an arrest before the Travyon murder of assaulting a Police Officer but his daddy was a Judge on the bench at the time and Zimmy got off with anger management and a hand slap now all of a sudden he is hailed as some kind of hero for stalking and killing that black boy. Go figure.

@Nana HAHAHHA Zimmerman was up against not only the state of Florida, but also the Department of Justice backed by Obama. To say he won because he had better representation is ludicrous. Just stop already. Zimmerman was acquitted due to a lack of evidence, in a trial where the prosecution had a year to dig up whatever they could. The jury didn't even find him guilty of the lessor charge of manslaughter. The DOJ spent more time and money trying to stick a hate crimes or civil rights violation on him and came up empty. None of that was because Zimmerman had a better lawyer but nice try.

@Jason, hindsight is always 20/20, I agree that Martin should of just went home but I am not totally confident that he approached Zimmerman because this is a man that was on trial account of what happened. But lets Martin did confront Zimmerman , according to Zimmerman own account Martin asked him what was the deal was, Basically asked him why you following him. My opinion Martin manned up, Zimmerman was the one that chicken out and said oh nothing going on when we know he called the police on Martin and followed him at some point. Go look at the video of Zimmerman account to the police of what happned, Zimmerman said he reached for his phone when Martin hit him but his phone was not there but if you see later on when they were on the ground Zimmerman said he got his gun from the same area where he said his phone was at. Could it possibly be that Zimmerman reached for his gun and Martin hit him because he saw the gun there and he was afraid that this was what he was reaching for and probably was reaching for? Plus like I said earlier, we do not know threw the first punch because you really think a person on trial for murder is going to say he threw the first punch?

Jason J - 14 hours ago
Here's my take on Zimmerman and it neither caters to the left or right. Zimmerman was a nosy douche, gun brandishing guy with a short man's complex. Fate would have it that he confronted a black kid from a broken home who wouldn't take his #$%$ and escalated the situation. Most kids would have pussed out, answered Zimmerman's questions, and would be alive. Instead, Trayvon fought the Zim because his pride was at stake. It was a toxic confluence of events. Neither party was innocent. Since Zim was bloody and there was clearly an escalation by both parties he was found not guilty via the stand your ground law.

The media called him "white Hispanic" to create controversy. Hispanics, in the southwest anyway, are just american Indians with Spanish last names, more or less (called mestizo). he might be part "white" and part mestizo. But for the media trying to sell something, they prefer to call him white.

@joyce Nobody could care about "this Trayvon story".
I added the capital T since you may have been asleep in grade school when the topic was capitalization.

I don't recall "white males" or anyone else, other than GZ who claimed that BHO was a racist. Unless you are psychic, how do you know if the person commenting is a "white male"? The comments that I recall reading, were from people who would merely repeat BHO famous comment "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon". You seem to be making up your own alternative facts, which makes you the race baiter.

Perhaps you have erased from your memory that It was GZ who people called a racist, instead of waiting for eyewitness testimony & the facts to be presented. However, I will say, that while BHO was in office, he was the person responsible for causing racial tensions to worsen, which caused further division when he made it about race, instead of waiting for facts. BHO did the same not only in TM case, but also in Ferguson, Baltimore & anywhere else a young black man was shot. Only later were facts released that BHO son's were not the innocent angels that BHO would have wished for his children.

The media is a propaganda machine with a racial agenda.- Interestingly he's half white and part black. His father is of German extraction and his mother is Peruvian of mixed race including black. He refers to himself as "Hispanic" which was created by the US government as part of the census. The census distinguishes it from "Race" by using the term "Hispanic Origin." The rest of the world doesn't recognize the term HIspanic.

btw... "According to the US Department of Justice, blacks accounted for 52.5% of homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites 45.3% and "Other" 2.2%. The offending rate for blacks was almost 8 times higher than whites (per 100,000), and the victim rate 6 times higher (per 100,000). Most murders were intraracial, with 84% of white homicide victims murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims murdered by blacks."
the hispanic homicide offenders are included in the "white's" category. this means 13% of the population (more like 5% when you subtract women and children) are responsible for more homicide than everyone else combined. rollo must be the only black person living in vermont, otherwise he would know this is true.

Reverse racism on the part of the MSM. Zimmerman acted in self-defense when Martin was basing his head into the concrete and the media wanted to portray the incident as racially motivated, calling Zimmerman a "white Hispanic." They were also upset that their story of a black kid going to 7/11 for "snacks" was really a druggie buying 2/3 of the ingredients for purple drank after people like myself wrote letters to the editor and explainwd what the Skittles and watermelon fruit juice cocktail were really for.

@XinPhram, du bist dumm, Zimmerman derives from the German last name Zimmermann, a related surname. The modern German terms for the occupation of carpenter are Zimmerer, Tischler, or Schreiner, but Zimmermann is still used.
Zimmer in German means "room" or archaically a chamber within a structure. The German man or mann (in English the extra n is ignored) means "man" or "worker". Combining the two German words, you get "a worker of wood", or, literally translated, "room man" or "room worker".

His father is a White judge in Sanford, Florida, hence Zimmerman. His mother is a darker Hispanic immigrant. He clearly gets his thinking from his father. The whole law enforcement, Blacks are automatic criminals mindset. George Zimmerman is a white supremacist, who isn't 100% white. He can't pass for White, so he probably says he's Hispanic for obvious reasons. Some biracials who are half Black, half White can pass for White and identify as White. Same goes for some who look Black and identify as Black (i.e Barack Obama). Zimmerman would sound like an idiot saying he'a a White man, not that there aren't tons of Cuban idiots in Florida and other southern states doing just that (Senator Ted Cruz). Same way UN ambassador Nikki Hailey is Indian, but she passes as a White women in reality.

But Zimmerman started trouble and got beat up by a kid. Then he pulled out his gun after losing the fight and called it self defense, Nothing but a coward.

Nope. He was a registered Democrat and basically a Black Lives Matter supporter before the organization existed (ironically it formed as a direct result of him beating the case). I wouldn't be surprised if he is no longer a Democrat, after seeing how stupid they are and how easily manipulated by the media they are. He was innocent, but the media pretty much lied about the circumstances behind Trayvons death so that liberals virtually unanimously wanted him in prison, despite having no idea what had actually taken place. I'm sure he IS crazy. He was a good guy who found himself in a wrong place wrong time situation and the liberal media used him for their agenda of racial division and made him a household name, the number of death threats he's received is probably staggering, all for defending himself. Can you say that wouldn't make you resent liberalism even if you grew up a staunch liberal?

Who needs pesky facts when you have "feelings"? "Facts don't mean a thing to race baiters." You are correct in at least one thing. The fact is that Zimmerman has shown a propensity for violence. AS to who started the fight? We will never know. What we DO know is that a private citizen stalked and subsequently confronted a young man. An altercation ensued and the young man being stalked was killed. The "justification" listed was "stand your ground" - Now, why wasn't that justification for the young man being stalked? YOU only see what you want to see. A narrative of you "losing" something. You aren't losing a d@mned thing when others are afforded equal rights and protections.

ALSO last I checked HOA neighborhood watches aren't supposed to CONFRONT or attempt to detain ANYBODY. That isn't their job, that's the police's job. It also isn't their job to determine who "belongs" and who doesn't. Again, that's for the police.

@CD Of course this is how a pansy liberal social justice warrior wanna be would see it. Zimmerman was doing his job and got attacked by Martin, who is black according to the article and you (just like all race baiters) love to point out. By the way, you have twisted the facts to present it as Zimmerman attacked Martin, thats not how it happened. We're talking about FACTS, remember? But then again, facts don't mean a thing to race baiters like yourself. You only see "black man gets killed" but refuse to acknowledge the rest of the FACTS that lead up to WHY they got killed.

@Knights Who Say NEE "Yes, we see that Zimmerman is Hispanic" Actually it's a bad idea to base your assumption of heritage off of looks. Hell, if we all did that then we would have assumed Princess Margaret was Jewish.

As for Zimmerman's innocence, that whole trial was pretty much a "he said, the other guy said nothing because he was dead" kind of trial. We still have no idea who goaded who into what but given Zimmerman's actions since it's seems likely that he started it. Too bad we can't put someone on trial for the same crime twice.

Yeah because all you stand up people commenting never crossed through a neighborhood that didn't belong to you and then when someone was following you responded or reacted wrong as a TEENAGER!! my point is we all did things as teenagers and none of the stuff we did defined us as adults but you disgusting racist pricks think it's a joke because someone trying to get likes said he would have graduated medical school maybe not but he would have had a chance to do something with his life even if it was community college I'm sure not every person on this thread went ivy league but it's all fun in games until it's your kid but most of you with you precious white skin will never know the feeling of having every bad thing your kid did their entire short teenage life (which is mostly stupid stuff) broadcasted all over the US for them to be judged like animals and told they were never going to amount to anything anyway ! It's rude and disgusting and most of you have 20 year old losers sleeping on your couch now who have no interest in doing anything more with there lives so get off of here with your hate !!!

Its funny how thugs are put on a pedestal when they are killed simply because they are black. Just like Michael Brown, commit an armed robbery, attack a cop and try to take his gun, no is a community hero because his stupidity got him killed. This country is in the #$%$.

It is ironic that you should make mockery of someone who could have possibly been a troubled teen, as if that determines if one will be successful or not.

For example, I am working on my second Masters degree, and will soon be applying for a PhD program in sociology, race and ethnic relations. The fact that your white supremacy brethren killed a young teenager, now we will NEVER know his potential.

White supremacist humor. No matter how many run-ins Zimmerman has with the law, you're still cant budge off the "Trayvon is a thug, who deserved it" narrative. This man has had altercations with police officers, #$%$aulted his wife and father-in-law, got into an argument that resulted in a middle aged White man shooting at him and getting 20 years, being overheard bragging about killing Trayvon Martin in public places, selling the murder weapon weapon, like some autographed football. He's made a couple of very racist remarks about Barack Obama when he was POTUS and he just made some remark about killing Jay-Z by feeding him to alligators. This man clearly has an issue, but many of you harbor some much hate towards Black men who are neutered #$%$ serving as doormats like its 1925, you will allow a cop or vigilante like Zimmerman free reign to murder a Black man, no matter what the evidence. Basically, he ran followed behind Trayvon, stalking him. Had his gun out and basically tried to dominate Trayvon like some runaway, he fought back and got his #$%$ kicked by a teen. He should have been a man and walked away. So, I guess its legal for a White male (or psued-White male) to get in your face, punk you out, start touching you and if you decide to check him physically, he has the right to shoot you dead. This is what the average Zimmerman supporter thinks. If a Black man did what Zimmerman did to a White teenager, he'd be under the jail and you all know it. Good ole American White supremacy, the unofficial national religion of the USA.

@Sean Zimmerman was never "told to stand down." Upon telling the police dispatcher over the phone that he was going to try to see where Martin went, the dispatcher said, "We don't need you to do that." That was all. Following Martin was certainly not illegal, and anyway is irrelevant to the law as it applies to the shooting. This was a very clear case of self defense, a justified shooting, no matter how hard the hyperpartisan media tried to convince viewers Martin was innocent.

Martin was caught with stolen jewelry from home invasion not arrested. Plotted to shoot a school snitch because he has not bled enough. Caught on video surveilling the clubhouse where his dad was staying after hours. Was not allowed cause date time stamp was off after a power outage. Watermelon Iced Tea and Skittles = Purple Lean. Martin tried on several occasions to buy cough syrup the last part the formula. Boy loves him some skittles. Shortly after Martin was sent to where his dad was staying break-in's started happening in that gated community. Coincidence we all know that right? During trial it was shown Martin was less than 100 feet or away from his door turned around and went back after Zimmerman. FYI in cell phone texts of the school snitch he wanted to shoot he stated snitches need to bleed. He knew Zimmerman had called police because he walked deliberately by Zimmerman his truck to get long hard look at him while he was on phone to police. Quit playing Martin is innocent card.

@Anonymous Your ignorance is ... well, typical. The dispatcher DID NOT tell him to "stay put". The DISPATCHER is the one who asked what race Trayvon, No Limit #$%$, Martin (HIS CHOSEN FACEBOOK NAME) was. Zimmerman RESPONDED by saying "I THINK he is Black". The dispatcher the asked where [No limit] was. Zimmerman then got out of his truck to find out (he wasn't sure of the street names". When the dispatcher heard Zimmerman breathing hard, he asked Zimmerman if he was following [No Limit]. When Zimmerman said yes, [so he could tell the police who were supposedly on their way], the dispatcher didn't TELL him to do anything. He just said "You don't NEED to do that." At that point Zimmerman stopped looking for Martin and was headed BACK TO HIS TRUCK TO WAIT FOR THE POLICE when No Limit circled around and attacked Zimmerman and tried to kill him, at first by bashing his head into the sidewalk, then (after he discovered Zimmerman had a gun) by taking Zimmerman's gun to kill him.THAT is why the Jury found him NOT GUILTY OF ANY CRIME.

They didn't ask him to. Staying They didn't NEED him to follow wasn't an order not to follow. Stop the spinning/lying.
"It was unjustified."

Not per the law...anyony can follow anyone. You can also use deadly force if you feel your life is in danger..and the jury agreed.

"He had no authority to detain anybody ."

Following is not detaining. Taryvon lost him but came back to for the confrontation as he said to his friend on the phone. He escalted the situation which led to him being fertilizer and the world is better because of it. :-)

@The Brizz So you cannot answer the question either. I did not ask "should he have followed a dispatcher's advice?". I asked "what should he have done when Trayvon was pinning him down and literally bashing his brains in?". If that is not an appropriate time to use a gun, then I don't know what is.

Sure, he was unwise to not listen to what was recommended he do, but that is not a crime and certainly does not make him a murderer based on what unfolded next. To think he deserved to suffer life-altering injuries or die because of that is a crazy suggestion to make.

The jury got it right, and nothing I have read makes me doubt the verdict.

Daniel - 13 hours ago
@Big Kev George could’ve stayed in his car (which he lawfully didn’t have to as George wasn’t detained) and he could’ve stayed in his bed. Many things could’ve prevented the sad shooting. But it’s irrelevant. Also, according to George, he asked TM to stay put until cops arrived. TM refused and GZ attempted to keep him there. That’s when TM pinched him. Which I would’ve done the same. Some guy on neighborhood watch has no legal right to detain me. So, the punch started a fight and during that fight, one man attempted to kill the other. Resulting in a deadly shooting. It’s all sad, but the shooting was legal. Everything preceding the head bashing, is irrelevant.

Daniel - 13 hours ago
@Big Kev Listen, who started it and the hundreds of ways it could’ve been prevented, are irrelevant to the actions that warranted the self defense. In California, two men were fighting and the bigger man beat the smaller man to a pulp. The bigger man even started the fight. Well the smaller guy got on his feet and went to his car and grabbed a lug wrench. He came at the gig guy with the lug wrench and took a swing at him. The big guy reached in his boot and pulled out a Raven .25. Shot the small guy in the head and killed him. Witnesses saw the incident and testified that the big guy started it and beat the little guy stupid. Butbyhe little guy came at him with a lug wrench. This testimony got the big guy acquitted! Why? 200 years of the self defense law that every state in the country has. It’s a good law! TM was beating GZ’s head against concrete. All he to do is come at him with a chunk of concrete, and it would’ve warranted self defense. Cops kill people for less all the time! Cops kill for men holding cell phones! Cops are subject to the same laws.

@Mike So you evaded the question by saying he just shouldn't have gotten himself in that situation. Brilliant.

He did something, which was admittedly foolish, but it is not a crime to confront someone as a neighborhood watchman, and you have problems if you think his actions were deserving of serious injury or death.

The question is, once Trayvon escalated it into a violent act and was beating him senselessly and had him pinned to the concrete, what would you recommend he do? If you cannot use a gun at that point, then you might as well just throw your handgun in the garbage can.

So, please try again. What should he have done differently at that point since you think the shooting was unjustifiable, murder?

Those circumstances make it perfectly reasonable to assume your life is in danger and make deadly force legally and morally justified.

Every prestigious law professor in the country from Harvard to Stanford has made it clear the acquittal was clear and simple. Only the media and those unfamiliar with law, see any doubt in the verdict. I suggest reading up on self defense before allowing yourself to look like one of the common fools. If someone is beating your head on a concrete sidewalk, as an eyewitness testified and evidence proves, it is not only assault, but an easy arrest and conviction for attempted murder. Even a cop entering the science would’ve drawn his weapon and demanded TM cease the beating. If not, they would’ve fired. Understand the law and set aside your feelings. I personally cannot stand Zimmerman, and I support BLM and the players protest. But I also know the law and worked for the DOJ during the 80’s.

I wonder if Trayvon Martin movie will deal with his stolen jewelry in high school? From a burglary no less. Cops told report it as lost don't arrest him for it in school. Trayvon said a snitch had not bled enough for him after beating him. Began shopping for a street gun but could not afford it at the time. Was caught on clubhouse video surverlling the clubhouse in neighborhood where his father was staying. Not allowed to arrest him because date time stamp was wrong from power outage. Break in's began happening after Mr Martin moved in with his father. His MO to make money on side without working was stealing people's stuff with break in shiv made from school drivers. He was known to like purple lean which is why media reported his watermelon iced tea as just iced tea. Combine that flavor with skittles then all you need is cough syrup. BTW the convenience store clerks said he kept trying buy cough syrup all the time. Such a good sweet kid. To bad they still show his 12 year old pictures as PR stunt rather than the 16 year old one grinning showing off his lower golden grill from fighting all the time.

OJ at least had his own selfish reasons why he did what he did but Zimmerman killed a kid because he wanted to play Supercop. That must be enraging for a parent to find out your kid was killed because someone else multiple mistakes that night cost your kid his life.

Enai - 14 hours ago
@Diamante OJ killed two people because he was an insecure jealous piece of #$%$. So, the exact same as Zimmerman, and Dave's comment is 100% correct.

OJ killed 2 drug addicts and one was a loose easy girl. Zimmerman killed a teen who was just buying snacks. Zimmerman created an issues where there was no issues and killed a kid in response.

dave no it's because you had a prosectour who overcharged, as they charged him with 1st and 2nd degree murder, and didn't whittle it down too involunatary manslaughter until the jury got the case, as 1st degree murder is pre-meditated murder,meaning zimmerman had the intent to kill martin, i believe if this prosectour had just argued a involuntariry manslaughter case and only charged him with that and made that the prosecution case, they would've secured a conviction, but it wasn't until it went to the jury, did she add in involuntariry manslaughter

@Brian The 911 dispatcher is not a police officer. It is not illegal to disobey the 911 dispatcher. Is it stupid to disobey the 911 dispatcher? Yes. Point is... at that moment when his head was being smashed on the sidewalk, did Zimmerman felt his life was in danger where he had no other choice but to use his gun. The jury agreed he had to use his gun.

yuto - 10 hours ago
@Cortney There's a phone recording with his girlfriend that he was going to teach the cracker a lesson. You're correct that nobody knows who started the fight, but this is the fact from witnesses who saw it and that fact is that Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman and pounding his head on the concrete sidewalk. Now did Zimmerman felt his life was in danger where he had to use his gun? The jury agreed his life was in danger to use a gun. case closed. Only person who thinks his life was in danger is Zimmerman. If you don't think his life was in danger then show me solid proof and not your imaginary idea of what you think.

You should visit Sanford. Learn some history of the city. It is one of the most racist places in Florida. I lived there 8 years. The subdivision this occurred in is small and gated.

All you liars on this post claiming Treyvon attacked Zimmerman. Aside form the fact that you weren't there it doesn't even make sense. He was running from Zimmerman, because he did not know who he was or why he was being followed. So apparently he just changed his mind randomly and just attacked a stranger. Even if that were the case which, there is no proof that there is, he would be validated.

Zimmerman can't disappear because he has not other way to take care of himself, other than to cash in on killing.

30 seconds before the shooting there was another witness. You did not watch the trial or watch that mans testimony. He went outside when he heard the screaming he seen Martin above Zimmerman raining blows down on him. Zimmerman seen him and yelled "HELP!' Man got scared yelled I am calling the cops. About 30 seconds later while talking to 911 he heard the gunshot. Quit lying about only one witness. That second witness established that Zimmerman was being assaulted and yelled for help. Only after no one helped did he resort to the gun after Trayvon went for it. BTW Trayvon tried to buy a street gun to cap a high school snitch with. His own words the snitch had not bled enough for him. Could not afford the gun at the time so the boy from school did not end up shot dead on the street somewhere.

Hmmm. We only see one side here. My questions are: How did Zim even know that the PI was working for a Trayvon Martin documenter? How did they meet? Has the PI been stalking Zim? And if so, how many times did HE stalk Zim? And did the PI threaten Zim?
Inquiring minds wanna know. And why did the PI even need to have any contact with or reveal his existence to Zim? Okay?
Jeff - 2 hours ago
And charges do not mean guilt.
And no judge has ruled anything in this case, only prosecutors have brought charges. They do not get judges to sign off on indictments. Okay?

A private investigator doesn’t all the time work in the shadows, sometimes they go right up to the source and ask questions. That’s what I would expect in this case, it’s not like he’s investigating Zimmerman to retrial him, this is for documentation purposes so he can be upfront about everything.

@Lyndia having watched both trials. You are correct. OJ’s team did a fantastic job while the prosecution in that case was bad. In GZ’s case, the defense was good but it didn’t really have to be because the prosecution was never trying to prove beyond reasonable doubt that it was murder. They were just trying to prove doubt that it was self defense. That’s not how our legal system works. There is so much doubt in this case that innocent of murder is the only verdict anyone with brains could come to after reviewing the evidence of this case presented in court.

It's funny though how whoever wrote this article notes, "Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic". As though perhaps it's not really so and he just identifies himself as that. And yet his mother is a mestizo woman from South America, and he clearly looks like a mestizo Hispanic himself. Now, if he had been the shooting Victim, and the shooter had been a (non-Hispanic) white male, he would then be undoubtedly identified by the writer of any such articles as "the victim, who was Latino".
D - 4 hours ago
Yes the mass media and pop culture love that term. And yet not a word of actual Latin is spoken or understood, lol... FWIW I think it's more popular among Democrats, liberals, and on the West Coast. I use Hispanic myself because I think it's more accurate and specific. You want to identify a Spanish speaker, not a Latin speaker or, more broadly, a speaker of any Latin/Romance language. Of which of course there are several and Spanish is hardly the only one.

Reality time: A court of law found Zimmerman not guilty based on the evidence including evidence that the prosecutors expected to make their case. Forensic evidence, medical evidence and even the evidence provided by the girl Trayvon was on the phone with supported Zimmerman’s version of events. Since then people discuss his “criminal behavior, so from the article here it is: “Since Zimmerman's acquittal, he's had a domestic violence-battery/domestic violence aggravated assault case against him dropped in 2013 and another domestic violence aggravated assault case against him dropped in 2015. So it appears that some people and the media immediately convict him in their minds before the evidence is presented. You seem to have forgotten the man who attempted to shoot him and lied about the event, except there was evidence that disproved the shooters claimed. So, why assume that the man who is working for a movie maker isn’t just creating publicity.

@Christopher The problem with you comment is that you have accepted un unsupported claim against Zimmerman. Lets see, how would you feel if someone made an unsupported claim against you and the media blasted it around and many people believed it and verbally attacked you, and one at least shoot at you? Try walking in another's shoes, not making supported judgements. By the way, for eight and a half years, I was responsible for non-judicial disciplinary actions, and had to make sure that the evidence would support a court-martial if non-judicial action was refused. The same rules of evidence applied there as well as in the civilian world.

Christopher - 14 hours ago
Yeah, but he also pulled a gun on his father in law. And his ex wife got a restraining order. The court said one thing but his behavior says something else

Arthur - 15 hours ago
@Shondra First, the emergency operator wasn't a police officer and had no legal authority. So drop that one. More importantly, the girl that Trayvon was talking to on the phone stated in court that he had reached the house, and was going back to go after Zimmerman; therefore he initiated the confrontation, not Zimmerman. Assaulting him for following him isn't a legal act, more importantly, is why didn't Trayvon call the police? Trayvon decided to use street justice and found that acting like a thug has a very negative downside.

Arthur - 15 hours ago
@Arthur proof of innocence. If you doubt me take a pair of leather gloves that fit you, get them wet and let them dry and try them on. In the case of Trayvon, his girlfriend told the jury that he told her that he had reached the house that he was staying at, and that he was going back after Zimmerman. He was shot 150 feet from that house, which he told her he was leaving. The medical evidence proved head injuries to Zimmerman that support his comments. The forensic evidence supported Zimmerman's version of event. No shrunken gloves here, but solid evidence. The media editing of the 911 call which was played made a huge part of he mind set against Zimmerman.

Arthur - 15 hours ago
@marc OJ was acquitted without evidence to acquit him. Shrunken leather gloves not fitting isn't proof of innocen

Arthur - 15 hours ago
@Jme As you rightly stated dropped doesn't mean not guilty; but it does mean that there was insufficient evidence to bring charges. So, you also can't say that he is guilty either since there was no charge. You ignored the attempt to shoot him and the shooters lie. No one deserves punishment for no crime.

What does it matter? You don't have to watch it. There's "documentarys" on TV right now that I refuse to watch, because of some of the trailers ...

55 phone calls and 67 texts mean nothing. If you don't want to receive a call from someone then you block the number which it wasn't. So how many times did the other guy reply? Most likely close to the same amount of times.

@Kare, would you know if you were an idiot? It brings to mind someone calling themself 'crazy', if you have the self awareness to say you are crazy, then you most definitely are not crazy. What I'm saying is, the question is pointless as would be any answer given.

Melania Trump's 'Be Best' materials have a familiar ring to them
David Knowles,Yahoo News•May 7, 2018

Oops, she did it again.

Supporting materials presented Monday in conjunction with Melania Trump’s “Be Best” youth initiative turn out to have been lifted from a 2014 Federal Trade Commission pamphlet.

Titled “Talking with Kids About Being Online,” Trump’s document, which was distributed as part of the “Be Best” rollout, relies on the same graphic design and wording as the FTC’s “Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online.” Trump’s pamphlet also contains an introductory letter by the first lady, advising parents to “communicate your values clearly so your kids can make thoughtful decisions when they face tricky situations.”

(See entire documents below.)

The similarities are far from cursory. For instance, the FTC’s 2014 document contains the following paragraph on the topic of sexting:

“Sending or forwarding sexually explicit photos, videos, or messages from a mobile device is known as ‘sexting.’ Tell your kids not to do it. In addition to risking their reputation and their friendships, they could be breaking the law if they create, forward, or even save this kind of message. Teens may be less likely to make a bad choice if they know the consequences.”

Melania Trump’s version contains that same text, word for word; this is also seen in other passages, such as one on the dangers of “oversharing.”

From the FTC document:

“Some pitfalls that come with online socializing are sharing too much information, or posting pictures, videos, or words that can damage a reputation or hurt someone’s feelings. Applying real-world judgment and sense can help minimize those downsides.”

From “Talking with Kids About Being Online”:

“Some pitfalls that come with online socializing are sharing too much information, or posting pictures, videos, or words that can damage a reputation or hurt someone’s feelings.”

The FTC, however, seemed unfazed by the use of their document.

“Today, First Lady Melania Trump introduced her initiative to help children everywhere be their best. At her launch event at the White House, the First Lady distributed copies of Talking with Kids About Being Online, a guide to help parents and other adults have thoughtful conversations with kids about being safe and responsible online. We’re excited that the First Lady is sharing this important information with families across the country,” Nat Wood, an associate director at the FTC wrote in a blog post Monday afternoon. “The FTC worked with children’s advocates, tech companies, and law enforcers to come up with the advice in the guide. They told us that while kids value the opinion of their peers, most tend to rely on their parents for help on the issues that matter most. That advice has proven true over the years. That’s why many school systems have shared it with every middle school student.”

Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump’s communications director, released a lengthy statement scolding the media for pointing out the similarities.

“After giving a strong speech that was met with a standing ovation and positive feedback, the focus from opposition media has been on an educational booklet,” Grishman said. “Despite providing countless outlets with ample background, information, and on-the-record comments from the FTC, some media have chosen to take a day meant to promote kindness and positive efforts on behalf of children, to instead lob baseless accusations towards the First Lady and her new initiatives.

“Our office will continue to focus on helping children,” Grishman added, “and I encourage members of the media to attempt to Be Best in their own professions.”

Of course, this is not the first time that Melania Trump has been accused of repurposing Obama-era lines. An analysis of her speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention revealed that she closely hewed to Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech before the Democratic National Convention.

On her Twitter feed, the first lady was quick to post a video advertising the rollout of “Be Best”; however, it did not contain any audio or links to outside material. Maybe that was a smart decision.

The Truth Tell - 47 minutes ago
The cause (me former C -130 E driver) was the prop decoupled from jet engine causing the blades to go “flat!” I’m guessing number 4 engine. It happened right at takeoff and the amount of drag from four prop blades, each six feet high, would make plane very, very difficult to control. There are emergency back up systems but to actuate takes longer than they were airborne. Trust me this is a very difficult emergency to deal with at take off. My heart goes out to all!
