Question: Can someone produce a map of where George Zimmerman lives?
I would love to see a map of the area where the shooting took place and have spots marked that include:
- The store Trayvon went to for his Skittles and iced tea.
- The gate that people walk in and out of to go to the store.
- Where Zimmerman parked his vehicle that night.
- Where the shooting took place.
- Where Zimmerman was when he called the non-911 number.
- Where Zimmerman told the police he would meet them
- Roughly where the unidentified neighbor lives who said he/she saw everything. (just a general location).
A map with these points identified would go a long way to help put everything in perspective. I am tired of hearing that Trayvon was walking “here” and then he was walking fast and almost running to get away from Zimmerman, yet Zimmerman was asked by the police dispatcher to stop following and he said he was walking back to his car when he was confronted by Trayvon.
Also, Zimemrman’s newest best friend is on talk shows and he cannot shut up. He interrupts people all the time, asking them, “Were you there?” or “How do you know that?”
He uses the pronoun “We” so much about he and Zimmerman that I would like to see him locked up with Zimmerman so they can get their stories straight.
Also, it seems like there is an excessive use of “We” because he says that, “We will fight this” and “We will win”.
I do not know if Taaffe and Zimmerman are an “item”, but if they are – more power to them. The use of “we”, over and over seems unusual.
Whenever someone asks a new question, he simply counters with gibberish and then comes up with some excuse to discount the answer, but the next time he is interviewed, he tweaks the story a little to always make Zimmerman the poor innocent victim.
Frank Taaffe, Zimmerman’s friend and confidant, comes across as holier than thou, trying to use metaphors and equating the shooting to a football game and the new lawyer being a top notch quarterback and they will win this game.
News Alert to Frank Taaffe, this is not a game – this is a murder investigation – try not to be so cute with your one liner’s – this is not Comedy Central.
Well, unfortunately, Zimmerman was pursuing Trayvon like it was hunting season – keep in mind that Zimmerman was the poor out-of-shape adult with the glock who was being victimized by this superior younger black athlete who Taaffe says can run the 100 yard dash in seconds due to his superior athleticism. It almost sounds like a trailer for a new movie titled, “Old White Men can’t run!”
Believe me, in the booking photo it is Zimemrman who looks like the punk – the man who was on the look out for any black man, especially one is a hood that is out to steal his possessions.
It is okay to be on a Neighborhood Watch patrol, but leave the serious work to the police.
A wanna-be cop who tries to take matters in his own hands is only going to do one of two things – injure or kill someone else – or get injured or killed himself.
In this case, he was the hunter and the one who did the shooting. Trayvon, if he had a gun, might have shot Zimmerman but that was not the case.
Taaffe tries to act superior by using terms and phrases he has just memorized that day and he uses them during every interview – Taaffe is “old news” and should not be able to talk “ad Nauseum” and over run everyone else who is making a comment.
Also, Taaffe hates the fact that there is an unidentified witness who saw most of what happened. He wishes the only witness would be Zimmerman and as a result he would be the only one telling the story – true or otherwise.
He also hates it that Trayvon was on the phone with a friend because anything she could bring to the table could dispute Zimmerman’s story.
There is also the issue of forensic evidence that could disprove some of Zimmerman’s story and I do not know how Taaffe is going to dispute forensics.
I have no idea as to whether Zimmerman is telling the truth or not but if Zimmerman really feels he is telling the truth, all he has to do is to submit to a polygraph and that could help ease tensions. I know polygraphs are usually not admissible in court, but the results of a poly administered by a highly regarded expert would level the playing field.
To anyone who wants to jump up and cry foul because of the subject of a polygraph should be delighted for Zimmerman to take one – after all, I am sure that you believe he is telling the truth – or maybe he is really lying and you want him to get away with the lying and the shooting as well – because, after all, a punk black kid in a hoodie had the audacity to walk in the vicinity of Zimmerman’s neighborhood without getting George’s permission first.
For anyone not aware, Zimmerman’s neighborhood – no, the neighborhood Zimmerman lives in – is 37 percent black. I cannot understand how Zimmerman allows that many blacks to live in his neighborhood.
Zimmerman might consider his neighborhood as HIS neighborhood but that is not the case – he lives there just like all the other neighbors of all colors, religions, and ethnicities.
Keep in mind that Trayvon was wearing a hoodie and it was over his head because it was raining – but I also remember bunches of white men throughout the south wearing hoods because they were burning crosses on people’s lawns and they were chasing blacks out of towns not too long ago.
By the way, does anyone know of a map of the crime area? If so, do you have a link you can provide?
One last thing – please take a few seconds to participate in the polls – current and past. Also, feel free to leave a comment. All opinions are welcomed – just take the high road when commenting.
Just like a 24 hour supermarket or even McDonalds – the polls are always open – never closed – the only rule, one vote per IP address – otherwise someone could stack the deck.
