Trayvon Martin's Murder in Florida, Business the American Way

Can't You Feel It Coming? Empire!
Can't You Hear it Coming?

The murder of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, besides being a fucking murder, is a clear cut case of Tennessee versus Garner (SCOTUS 1985). A case well known to all Police Officers. But, for those unaware, if a person is running away you can not just gun them down. Specifically, when a law enforcement officer is pursuing a fleeing suspect, he or she may use deadly force only to prevent escape if the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others.

Before deciding to murder of Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman has apparently gleamed enough from Cop Dramas to lie and claim self-defense but, the 911 tapes clearly show it was a case of premeditated murder by Zimmerman of "fucking coons". Zimmerman's full 911 call includes that tidbit @ 2:21 of the tape.
George Zimmerman - "He's got his hand in his waistband and... he's black."

Dispatcher- "Are you following him?"

George Zimmerman - "Yeah."

Dispatcher - "Okay we don't need you to do that."
But, Zimmerman wasn't going to follow that order because according to him these "fucking coons", "these assholes always get away".

Trayvon's final scream before Zimmerman murdered him is The Eternal Testament to Governor Jeb Bush and the NRA Gun-Nuts who empowered crazy wannabe vigilantes to go around murdering people. Think Progress has more deatils about the wannabe crime fighter Zimmerman. Trayvon Martin's murder shows the Florida Stand Your Ground is prima facia Unconstitutional just like everything connected to the Bush Legacy.

As Jill over at Brilliant at Breakfast stated,
do not let any mention of Jeb Bush go by ever again without a photograph or mention of Trayvon Martin attached to it. Because this country, when it forgets (as it will) what Jeb Bush's brother did to this country, it must never be allowed to forget just who it was that made it legal to kill people because of the invented "threat" of their race. I want the face of Trayvon Martin to haunt Jeb Bush's dreams for the rest of his life.
Jeb Bush, the NRA, and Right-Wing Gun Nuts are responsible for the death of Trayvon Martin because as always conservatives build these grand edifices of supposed rights and liberties which are supported by a foundation of shit and lies and end up, when actually applied in the Real World, getting people killed.

Florida Governor Rick Scott appointed a Task Force to investigate the Trayvon Martin Murder.

In the absence of a legal remedy, we should all begin to refer to former governor of the state of Florida Jeb Bush, as JIB Bush. Like his spineless brother, George, on 9/11/01, JIB is an accessory to hundreds of crimes in his reckless disregard for human life.

How!?! How can Geraldo Rivera say this, "I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.”

How can he give cover to the Faux News Bots who pepper stories with "niqqer" and "nig nog" and declare Trayvon Martin was a criminal?

Think Progress highlights that back in 2005, Critics say the measure could lead to racially motivated killings and promote deadly escalations of arguments.

Why is a community watch person packing a gun in the first damned place? You pack a cell phone and call 9/11 - you do not confront anyone. I organized the community watch here in the apartment complex - We now have off-duty INDY cops patrolling the area and a on-site/on call Marion Co Sheriff Deputy.

Zimmerman should be indicted for murdering Trayvon Martin.
