All depends on whether, or not, you considering recent, or older photos.



Why are 'perp' and 'victim' in quotes?

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

1) Because they are quoting the media.

I think it's pretty obvious that the victim would be the one who was murdered.

Also those pictures (at least one of them) of Treyvon Martin are 100% fake, and spread by Stormfront.

The first one [this one was cropped to his face] shows tattoos on the arm. It is easy enough to verify whether, or not, Martin had those tattoos on his arm. Appealing to the Ad Hitler Fallacy doesn't alter that fact.

I'm curious as to which one you claim is fake, and, how you know that for certain?

Don't be so sure. Martin could still be alive. I wouldn't trust the media reports about his death at all. He could be chillin' with Tupac and Elvis in Ecuador or something as we speak.

Of the pictures on the right, the smiling man does not seem anti-social, while flipping the bird for  its own sake does. I would fear a person whom appeared to be anti-social more than one that did not.

Serious question: Do you interact with teenagers?

I like the fact that whatever idiot made this didn't un-select that (highly unthreatening) image of Martin after re-sizing it.

Nitpicking, of course..

As an (obvious) aside, you could find photos of most white 17 year-old boys equivalent to those of supposedly scary images of Martin. That includes me when I was that age..

Guns beats pot. BTW, who voted for Trayvon? Was it CaDan again?

BigSkyBob, J.J., jimrtex are my guesses, not sure who the fourth would be. This probably lines up nicely with an Obama v. Palin poll, where who you vote for has more to do with your own identity and who you see as "your team" than the facts of the case.

I have not voted yet, but frankly, in terms of appearance, age would be a factor.  I'd be more likely to think a teenager might be more likely to be violent.

Knowing the background, Zimmerman.

Here are some more "pre-media" photos of Treyvon.

Gee whiz, Bob!'Ya know,  I'm starting to agree with you! He sure looks like a true sociopathic menace to society!

Bob, if you shot an innocent teenage boy, do you really believe you would deserve the same treatment as the victim from the media?

Treyvon pretty obviously was not an "innocent teenage boy."  The one actual eyewitness confirms Zimmerman's version of events.  It's pretty extreme to be accusing this person of lying for no good reason, miraculously telling the exact same story as Zimmerman despite presumably being questioned separately at the scene.

So the kid did weed and may have posted some dumb photos of himself on Facebook.  Wow, just awful.  So why not shoot the kid?  Especially since there's a video that shows no sign of him being severely beaten as it was claimed.

I don't understand how some people can be so quick to defend and sympathize with a killer.  Very astonishing.

This was on the local TV news the night after the shooting, so there was less chance to have it rehearsed.   I'm pretty sure that the witness is one of the 911 callers (see City of Sanford website).
