Cui Bono with Trayvon Martin?

This apparently Left Leaning blogger ask the question “Who profits from the Treyvon Shooting?” and that is a darn good question.

I found sadly hilarious the graphic accompanying the post:

Iced tea and Skittles are being used by the demonstrators as a symbol of their “struggle.” I don’t know if the parent companies of both goods will see a substantial increase in profits, but one must believe that the local stores are indeed profiting from the protests.

Who else is benefiting? Arianna Huffington and AOL. The Huffington Post (That website that does not pay its writers) has to be racking an unprecedented amount of hits per minute and traffic worse than the Palmetto Expressway at rush hour on a Friday Afternoon. Advertising money should be coming hands over fists which will enrich Arianna even more and give the financially destroyed AOL some cash to make payroll for a couple of months.

Dead Tree Media and Analog Newscasters are also profiting albeit at a much lesser scale. Nielsen Ratings might be up some and some extra papers sold at retail locations, but not much more.

Twitter has to be buying new servers and paying cash for them. The warfare going in is amazing and if you pay attention to the extreme left and their desire to eliminate due process and their fervor for literally lynching Zimmerman, you’d go right now and buy any gun available and plenty of ammo.

And there are those who will eventually profit for the shooting of Trayvon. Lawyers come to mind immediately, Al Sharpton surely will make some bucks although I doubt MSNBC is gonna see any of it. Book deals, movie deals, etc.

I think that pretty much covers the cui bono part.

  1. Yeah and I am sure you would be screaming bloody murder if the roles were reversed and Trayvon was the one who did the shooting. You want to hide behind the veil of due process when deep down you know if Zimmerman had been a black guy, his ass would be sitting in jail now while waiting for the criminal justice system to sort things out. One thing is to support the right to bear arms, but it is pretty disgraceful to defend that right by taking up the cause of a wannabe vigilante who was in no danger from a kid holding a bag of skittles and a can of iced tea.

    1. What we have here is truly an endangered species: A Black Panther in the middle of Hialeah, the biggest Cuban city short of Havana.

      Son, whoever you are, I fight for the Second Amendment Rights of everybody and due process of everybody including the murdered Huey P. Newton.

      Please, do not make stupid assumptions about me or this blog.

  2. Maybe one day you can hunt me down if I don’t maul you first. Of course, I say so in jest. That said, I can respect you for supporting the second amendment and due process for all, because so do I. But come on man, it doesn’t take a keystone cop or a jury to realize that Zimmerman’s story doesn’t add up. Even the lawmakers who drafted the stand your ground law say he is full of baloney to claim self-defense. And if I was wrong in my assumption that you would not stand up for the rights of a black man who claimed to shoot someone else in self-defense, be it a teen with a soda can or a police officer, then my apologies.

      I do hope so. We don’t take kindly to threats.

      , it doesn’t take a keystone cop or a jury to realize that Zimmerman’s story doesn’t add up.

      First, it is not what you think but what you can prove in court. If the evidence gathered is not enough, charging him with a murder and then a jury coming back with a not-guilty verdict or a verdict that can be reversed on appeal is not an acceptable outcome.

      Even the lawmakers who drafted the stand your ground law say he is full of baloney to claim self-defense.

      Again, possible, but they are responding to political pressure and not the all the facts of the case which, to this minute are still kept under wraps. Let me make it clear: Nobody but the Sandford Police and the Seminole County Attorney have the totality of the evidence. Everybody else is just speculating including me. Zimmerman has been tried in the court of public opinion, found guilty and they are raffling numbers to select the executioner. My question to you would be: God forbid you are involved in a similar case and end up on the bad side of the Media, Would you want people to automatically assume you should me summarily executed? Be either the Klan or MSNBC, lynching remains illegal in this country.
      This case has been so poisoned by pundits that the chance that Zimmerman will walk free because of the impossibility to find an impartial jury or a questionable guilty veredict grows by the minute. That in no way would serve Trayvon or those who may come after him.

      And if I was wrong in my assumption that you would not stand up for the rights of a black man who claimed to shoot someone else in self-defense, be it a teen with a soda can or a police officer, then my apologies

      Apology accepted.
