E.X.P.L.O.I.T.A.T.I.O.N

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A rally expected to draw prominent civil rights leaders is scheduled to take place at a Los Angeles church Thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death.

The rally starting at 5:30 p.m. at the West Los Angeles Church in Christ at 3045 Crenshaw Boulevard will be attended by the Martin family, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Bishop Charles Blake, who preaches at the church.

Several celebrities are expected, including Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, David Banner, Paul Rodriguez, radio host Big Boy and Magic Johnson

The rally is being held in part to “advocate for crime victims. . . educate young people on conflict resolution techniques (and) increase public awareness against all forms of profiling,” the NAACP said in a statement.

Additionally, “this event will commemorate the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death,” it said.  (article)

    I would argue that it was Trayvon Martin who did the most wrong-headed profiling. He assumed that GZ, being a neighborhood watch-guy, must certainly be un-armed.
    Trayvon was plenty smart enough and interested enough to know what a NW guy was and that they were advertized as active in his new neighborhood.
    His reported last words make little sense unless he was thinking about the possibility that GZ was armed just before he went off on him. He said, “OK, you have got one, (or it).”

      I’ve read that Trayvon said “OK, you got it,” which would indicate to me that there was a struggle for GZ’s gun, and TM acknowledged that GZ got the gun. Important point, it indicates that TM did try to get the gun from GZ, as GZ claims. If TM had gotten the gun, it would have been GZ’s funeral that was in the local news. We would have never heard anything about this case.

      As to the neighborhood watch program, TM walked right past the NW sign that was posted by the gate. He passed it on his way out, and again on his way back in.

    Apparently Tracy and Sabrina have given up there jobs, and have become full time black activists. I wonder how Tracy’s fiancee, Brandy Green is feeling with seeing her man traipsing around the country with his ex-wife, holding hands, and talking about their beloved child. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Brandy Green came forward and told the whole truth about her, Tracy’s and Chad’s activities that night.

    Because Mayor Triplett, and City Manager Bonaparte were summoned to DC weeks ago, to meet with Eric Holder, it seems rather obvious that the Martins are allowing themselves to be used to create even more racial divisions in this country. That is exactly what the Obama admin. wants. They are the poster people, with a real life tragedy, who are only to willing to travel the country to further the Obama goals. Get the blacks incited so they can be kept on the reservation, and protected from those vile conservative haters.

    I have become increasingly convinced that it is those in the legal profession, attorney’s, prosecutors, judges etc. that become talking heads on news programs, because they were really sucky at their job’s in the legal professions.

    Creepy O’Reilly just asked Meghan Kelly if GZ could sue NBC for what amounts to defamation of character. Kelly said that he cannot because he was a famous person, and the networks are allowed to talk about famous people in whatever way they like. She said, referring to O’Reilly and herself, that they are famous people so they cannot sue anyone, who says bad things about them, because they are considered famous people?????? She completely leaves out the fact that GZ was only made famous because of the hyping of the case by NBC, and other networks, including Fox. Judge Napolatino just said a few days ago that the Sanford police should have detained GZ on the night of the shooting, and that the police could have come up with something to arrest him for???

    GZ didn’t ask to become famous, and he sure wasn’t being paid to be famous. I seriously doubt that he is enjoying being in the limelight. It is what you call, CYA, as there were some very damaging reports on GZ, predominently from Sheppard Smith, and others on Fox as well. They participated in the media lynching. No wonder Kelly has been reporting some positive reporting on GZ in the last few days. She has been trying to protect Fox from being sued.

      In 1964, The United States Supreme Court made a landmark decision in New York Times Company v. Sullivan, which gave the press expanded protection from libel actions. In order to protect the free flow of speech and opinion, the Sullivan ruling required famous people or “public figures” must prove in an action for defamation that a publisher of news acted with “actual malice” or a reckless disregard for the truth. This provides the press with greater liberty to write stories and news about public officials, celebrities, and famous people without the fear of being prosecuted except for more severe misconduct.

      “Public figures” does not necessarily mean famous celebrities – it can also include regular people who have been thrust into the public eye. For example, people who are accused of high profile crimes (murder, fraud and Ponzi schemes such as Bernie Madoff) can suddenly become public figures and the press will have expanded protection to publish articles about and concerning them.

      It’s a good thing the lovely Ms. Kelly is a talking head and not a practicing attorney. Does she not remember Richard Jewell. He was not famous until the major news outlets of the time splayed his name all over the place as a suspect and nutbag. As SD has pointed out, he received settlements from many of these bastions of “the truth”. I’m sure it was done this way so as not to actually go to court.

      And lawsuits big enough to stop them from media lynchings before they have any facts, or before the case has thoroughly been investigated and tried. As sundance has pointed out, it’s the media that is responsible for much of the narrative that is pushed, with much of what happens in this country. Break their banks for wrongful and destructive reporting, and maybe, just maybe, they will stop the propaganda tricks. Again, that includes the only network that at one time leaned at least a little right.

    The profiling that Trayvon did was to size up GZ’s size. Boys that age look at someone that much shorter than themselves and say, “I can take him.”

    You’re right that he was too dim-witted to realize that the guy might have a weapon, a perfectly legal weapon.

    On O’Reilly tonight, Megan Fox said that George Zimmerman couldn’t really sue NBC because he’s supposedly now a “famous” person like the celebrities. However, the problem with distorting facts and giving significantly misleading, or false data, about someone “famous” accused of a serious crime like murder is that it can make it very difficult to find a good jury, and it can do harm to the “famous” person and his or her family as well, inciting even violence and death threats. No matter how “famous” one may be, if charged with a serious crime, they still have the right to a fair trial and responsible, factual journalism and accountability by the mainstream media to the public.

      Look at the Casey Anthony case in Orlando. Roy Kronk, the utility worker who found the child’s remains, was unrelentingly slandered in the press.and accused of being the murderer. The last I knew he was suing one of the tabloids for painting him a murderer, and then delving into his personal life. His ex-wife was an idiot looking for her 15 minutes. I don’t know the status of that lawsuit. This is a perfect example of being one who is thrust unwillingly into the limelight in the middle of a high profile murder case. He was not ‘a celebrity’ but one who was thrown in the spotlight. I hope he’s successful in his lawsuit.

    Carol Burnett sued the National Enquirer and won. Most celebs don’t sue when the rag mags (and now the MSM) make false statements about them because doing so just brings more press their way and when that happens, many will believe the negative story. However, Burnett was so pissed off she didn’t care and she won. If more celebs did that, there’d be fewer false stories.
