Tag Archives: Trayvon Martin
Ever the demagogue, radio blabber Rush Limbaugh has virtually likened Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarniev to gun-violence victim Trayvon Martin, as we see HERE:
“The news media are doing to Dzhokhar what they did to Trayvon Martin,” Limbaugh observed. “They’re regularly showing a photo of Dzhokhar that was taken when he was about 14. Soft, angelic, nice little boy. Harmless. Cute. Big, loveable eyes.”
“Not at all what he looks like today,” Limbaugh added. “The way, when we’re shown Osama bin Laden, it’s in his shepherd pose with his walking stick, walking through the mountains or whatever.”
Notice, please, that the silhouetted figure on the target includes the requisite bag of Skittles and can of iced tea. Details like that are important to discerning bigots.

THIS is the latest in the Trayvon Martin case as of 4:49 p.m. CDT.
I’m going to be away for a few hours, but feel free to react in the comments thread while I’m gone.
HERE‘s the latest:
George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused of killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin will face charges brought by a special prosecutor investigating the matter, according to multiple reports.
Citing unnamed sources, NBC News, the AP and the Washington Post have reported that Zimmerman will be charged. It’s still unclear what those charges will be or when they will be announced by prosecutor Angela Corey.
Corey has scheduled to hold a news conference for 6 p.m., ET.
The special prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case has DECIDED not to take the matter to a grand jury.
It’s my guess, then, that she thinks she has enough evidence to bring charges without a grand jury indictment. I just can’t imagine that she would decide entirely on her own that no crime was committed, especially in light of the tensions in that community. To do so would only emulate the dubious decision made by a local prosecutor on the night of the incident.
