The Lame Stream Media and Progressives from coast to coast are outraged that George Zimmerman is exercising his Second Amendment civil rights. But where is the outrage from the left because Zimmerman was profiled for driving while brown?
Having worked as a law enforcement officer for three decades in north Texas, I am 100% certain that George Zimmerman was profiled as a possible drug/currency smuggler before he was stopped for speeding by a Forney, Texas police officer on Sunday.
George didn’t get a ticket because he was most likely traveling 5 mph or less over the posted 60 mph speed limit. If he wasn’t speeding, he would have been stopped for failing to signal a lane change, or following to close, or obstructed license plate or any of a dozens other minor violations that allow police officers to legally stop vehicles occupied by people they have profiled.
Am I outraged? Hell no. To be human, is to profile. It’s in our DNA, whether we are black, white, red, brown, or yellow. Our brains are programmed to profile. It’s not racial, it’s rational.
Police officers patrolling the Interstate Highways in the southern states have seized billions of dollars in drugs and currency for decades because of profiling. Race is just one of many of the factors law enforcement officers use, but it’s part of the profiling process.
By the way, white seniors are profiled for shoplifting and watched more closely in stores than middle aged whites, blacks or browns. Why? Because old white people are statistically more likely to shoplift. 🙀
Statistically law enforcement officers have seized more drugs and money on interstate highways from brown folks than they have from red, white or black folks combined. So guess who gets stopped the most? See George Zimmerman for details.
George Zimmerman did not profile Trayvon Martin just because he was a young black male. He profiled him because young black males were recently caught committing burglaries and home invasions in his neighborhood. Hundreds of calls to 911 had been made from the same neighborhood to report suspicious young black males, by BOTH black, white and brown callers not named George Zimmerman.
…we need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African American boys. And this is something that Michelle and I talk a lot about. There are a lot of kids out there who need help who are getting a lot of negative reinforcement. And is there more that we can do to give them the sense that their country cares about them and values them and is willing to invest in them? -Barack Hussein Obama
Want to be valued? Want to be positively reinforced? Pull up your pants and lose the gansta look. Stop stealing stuff that does not belong to you. Martin was profiled by Zimmerman and his suspicions were correct. Trayvon in fact had been caught by police at school with burglary tools and property taken during a residential burglary in his backpack.
And when Zimmerman was walking back to his car after trying to determine where the suspicious person had gone, he was jumped from behind and beat bloody by Trayvon Martin, according to the facts as determined by a jury.
George Zimmerman was found NOT GUILTY of committing a crime against Trayvon Martin. That verdict was only possible if the jury found Martin guilty of committing a life threatening felony against Zimmerman. Now many progressives, including the lame steam media, are doing everything they can to put George Zimmerman in harms way. Many of them want him dead. See Twitter for further details.
Zimmerman is not a prohibited person and in the state of Texas, he can lawfully carry a concealed handgun in a vehicle without a concealed carry permit or license. Millions of Texans exercise the right to carry concealed handguns in vehicles without a concealed carry license.
What if Zimmerman didn’t have a gun the night Trayvon jumped him and suckered punched him,knocking him to the ground? Would Zimmerman be dead and Martin be alive? Would the outraged progressives gave a flying F if it was George Zimmerman who died that night?
If you live in the United States of America, you don’t NEED a reason to exercise a civil right. But if anybody ever had a reason to carry a handgun for self protection, George Zimmerman does. His life is in danger 24/7/365. The progressive media is going to continue do everything they can to get George Zimmerman killed because they want to advance their agenda that being armed is no safer than being unarmed. Liberal fascists want a total ban on civilian gun possession.
