That odious little tidbit came from Sanford, Florida city commissioner Randy Jones upon Sanford’s refusal of the resignation of police chief Bill Lee. Followers of the blog recognize Sanford, FL as the location of the killing of Trayvon Martin and Chief Lee as the head of the police department that so botched the investigation the Department of Justice had to step in.
This little racist morsel of dreck, however, takes it to a whole new level of ugly.
Randy, you shmuck, STFU.
Police Chief Bill Lee, who is somehow accusing Trayvon Martin of being partially at fault for being murdered because he dared go to a 7-11 and buy skittles and arizona tea. To the police chief: the only person at fault here is Zimmerman, Trayvon did nothing wrong. (via panimi)
This guy needs to lose his job. Forever.
In addition to the outrageous suggestion that Trayvon should have done something differently, what kind of legal defense is it to say Lee is “sure” Zimmerman would have done things differently? Like, I’m sure plenty of murderers would have done things differently given the opportunity, our legal system isn’t based on intentions.
I always thought intent mattered. Like if I killed someone in self defense that’s treated differently than killing someone in cold blood? Also, hate crimes. Intent is taken into account.
What DOESN’T matter is “gosh golly if I could go back in time…”
Wait… Trayvon should have done something differently? Trayvon Martin — the kid who was murdered by an overzealous neighborhood watch cop wannabe? Let me guess, what he should have done was not be a Black kid in a gated community. Is that it?
Nearly three weeks after an unarmed teenager was killed in a small city north of Orlando, stirring an outcry, a few indisputable facts remain: the teenager, who was black, was carrying nothing but a bag of Skittles, some money and a can of iced tea when he was shot. The neighborhood crime watch volunteer who got out of his car and shot him is white and Hispanic. He has not been arrested and is claiming self-defense.
Beyond that, however, little is clear about the Feb. 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17.
As criticism of the police investigation mounts, so too do the calls for swift action in a case with heavy racial overtones. Protests grow larger each week, and lawyers for the family are now asking the Department of Justice to intervene. The case also brings into sharp focus Florida’s self-defense laws, which give people who feel threatened greater latitude in defending themselves than most states.
The police in of Sanford, where the shooting took place, are not revealing details of the investigation. Late Friday night, after weeks of pressure, the police played the 911 calls in the case for the family and gave copies to the news media. On the recordings, one shot, an apparent warning or miss, is heard, followed by a voice begging or pleading, and a cry. A second shot is then heard, and the pleading stops.
“It is so clear that this was a 17-year-old boy pleading for his life, and someone shot him in cold blood,” said Natalie Jackson, one of the Martin family lawyers.
Jesus fucking Christ.
Sanford, Florida police chief Bill Lee, trying to make himself the story as his department continues to fail to arrest or charge George Zimmerman for what’s beginning to look like a full blown execution style murder of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.
Chief Lee, eat a bowl of dicks, and STFU, you racist scumbag.
I need those to be barbed dicks in that bowl. I want this guy to choke on them.
It’s sad for the city of Sanford? It’s sad for the cops? Fuck you, you piece of shit.
It’s sad for Trayvon’s little brother, who will be wondering for who knows how long whether or not Tray would have lived if only he didn’t ask him for Skittles. It’s sad for his mother and the rest of his family whose next time to see him will be in his casket. It’s sad for his friends who will never see him again, and just might be able to post on his FB wall about how they miss him. It’s sad for his neighbors back home, who will have to walk by whatever memorial they lay out for him in front of his house.
But it’s not sad for you, you piece of rancid trash. I’m sure you’ll be just fine.
It’s important to realize, Trayvon’s parents have already buried him. He was murdered at the end of February. His funeral was March 3rd. Their child has been cold in the ground for two weeks and George Zimmerman’s ass is still walking around free as a fucking bird.
