NBC Deceptively Edits Zimmerman 911 Call to Imply Racist Motive

Original post made by !, Amador Estates, on Apr 2, 2012

Shouldn't someone from NBC be arrested for this? They are trying to foment hatred and stir up more violence. They are not a news organization. This is more evidence that they are an arm of the political left.

They conducted their own investigation into the charges being levied against them. I wonder how that will turn out.....given that they have no journalistic integrity to begin with.

Absolutely revolting. They also inserted the term of endearment that Zimmerman used -- "coon" -- when it was actually the victim who called himself that because he was so high on the bag of Skittles. (No one actually believes those weren't actually cocaine candies do they?) And did you see all the blood spewing out of that broken nose? Whew.

Why does corporate owned NBC attempt to do this? Because corporate owned media wants to spread racial animosity and unrest, that's why. And why do they do that? Because they want people with conscience to rise up and overthrow the oppressive corporate structure, that's why. I mean it's so obvious! Do you see any of the lamestream corporate owned networks mentioning how blacks have oppressed and terrorized whites in history? NO! About how blacks systematically lynched white people for over a half century? NO! Corporations are communist race baiters. Thanks to Steve for your thoughtful post (as always).

The most damning evidence is when, seconds after they give the brief clips, they play the full part of that dialogue in its full context. Unexcusable. Could NBC BE any more deceptive?

And notice how Fox and Hannity didn't play the recording of Zimmerman calling the victim a derogatory name. That's the most fair and balanced thing about it all. And what about Zimmerman's assault problems with ex's and cops? Those things are nothing compared to a bag of Skittles and some marijuana fumes in the victim's backpack only a few days before he was shot. And wearing a hoodie too. What's the self-appointed neighborhood cop Zimmerman supposed to do anyway? Just let the black kid wander around the neighborhood eating Skittles? Gawd, the hypocrisy of the left is just too much to bare!

Yes, because just like Tawana Brawley, the dead victim has been proved to be lying about what happened. I can't wait until Zimmerman gets his day in court. Oops, sorry. He hasn't been arrested. Well, you know what I mean. Skittles? Indeed! Like I believe that!

I agree with Kangaroo. The only hat that belongs in jail is the one that fits. And it doesn't fit Zimmerman, so if it doesn't fit you've got to acquit.

Sharpton doesn't belong on tv. He's not fair and balanced like Fox is.

I question why Zimmerman called the cops first, then hunted the black kid down like a dog and shot him in an unprovoked attack against all disenfranchised black people.

Maybe he wanted to be a martyr for all hispanic/white people and have the cops shoot him while committing his premeditated crime against humanity. No wonder the black panthers put a bounty on his head (attached or detached) so that they could make an example of him for everyone who even thinks that black people commit crimes in other peoples neighborhoods.

Leland continues to make some excellent points. Zimmerman should have had a machine gun. After all, who shouldn't be able to visit another person's neighborhood, self-annoint and self-appoint themselves armed neighborhood watchman, and shoot anyone wearing a hoody and eating skittles? And yes, whenever I see a black person in Pleasanton, I call the cops right away. Then I follow them. I'm not racist, of course. Hey, I'm half Mexican! I just wish I had the guts and training and sense of professionalism that Zimmerman has. All good people, stand your ground against you know who.

The dude abides....he's obviously had the occasion to walk through Oakland and Detroit after dark and didn't feel threatened at all. After all, what white guy ever goes there without packing major heat, as the dude pointed out. There's no way a lone white guy in a business suit would ever get jumped in Oakland, even in broad daylight. If he did, no doubt there would be hucksters critical of his choice of clothing, right, dude? Bet they wouldn't call the cops when they see crackers in oaktown, but the homies would take care of the situation..neighborhood watch jungle style.

A little bit too much tv there, Leland. In fact, statistically speaking, you're more likely to die of cancer than to get mugged. But then, you never really have walked through Oakland and Detroit before have you? And tv is much easier to believe than, say, a b-o-o-k; and it's only too happy to feed the racist fears that dwell within ourselves, except for you of course. And me. I do hope you're safely home. While driving throuogh downtown earlier I saw two Hispanic looking males, probably heroin dealers, and probably packing heat too. Make sure all your alarms are set, gun under the pillow loaded, and maybe lay off the Batman comics which are upsetting you so. Wishing you pleasant dreams as you fight to keep those who don't belong out of our nondiscriminatory society.

Dude, I was born and raised in oakland in the diamond park area. I saw enough to get out and pack heat now to avoid the intrusion of the plague in that city from creeping into my town.
I fear for you, naively thinking you are safe, but you can't pretend you didn't know better.
Regardless as to whether you witness senseless violence in person or on tv, there's no ignoring that it's coming your way. You can be prepared or be a victim or statistic.
Good luck to you....

I didn't know they had farms and offered a barnyard education in the Diamond Park area. I sure feel better knowing you're wandering around out there packing heat.

Not much different than the newly 'enhanced' images of the back of zimmerman's head that magically show a gash and even some red blood! The 'before' photos showed nothing of this. I am irate.

IF Trayvon did infact punch george, it is clear to me he was using HIW OWN stand your ground law to protect himself from an older, idiotic busybody who was looking for trouble.

So tragic.

I'm told the picture do not show that Trayvon was very tall, and that the picture is of him as a boy. Is this true?

We are not hearing why the police did not arrest or charge George.

Yes, Fox News has reported that Trayvon was 6'7, 245 lbs., and was armed. He had an extensive history of wife battery and assaulting a police officer. He assaulted Zimmerman, hitting him on the head with the barrel of the gun several times, breaking his nose and cracking his jaw. Zimmerman wrestled the gun out of Trayvon Martin's hands, and during the scuffle the gun accidently went off. Zimmerman was not arrested or charged because he was innocent of any wrongdoing except taking Martin's skittles from him after he lay dead on the ground. The D.A. didn't think it was worthwhile prosecuting Zimmerman over theft of a half-bag of skittles.

Cameron, time to get off the crack pipe and get back on your anti-psychotic meds. You must be with the black panthers or some other fringe vigilante gang. Your people must be very proud.

"Progressives" are always critical of Fox News for their opinion programs. At least on Fox I can tell the difference between a news and an opinion program. At NBC and MSNBC the line is blurred.

That's because NBC and MSNBC and the rest of the lamestream corporate media are communists who are against their own corporate control over the news. This country is going to heck in a handbasket because corporations are trying to bring the country down by reporting anti-corporativist news.

We need to write to corporations telling them that the corporate-owned news networks are acting against their own self interests. Its all very confusing.
