Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) has introduced a resolution “honoring” the life of Trayvon Martin and calls for a repeal of “Stand Your Ground” laws. No sh**. And I guess being elected to the House of Representatives gives you the leeway of lying through your teeth:
Whereas on February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin, an African-American youth, was horrifically shot and killed while walking from his local 7-Eleven
If by walking you mean straddling George Zimmerman and beating his head against concrete…well yes… I guess.
Whereas Trayvon Martin was racially profiled, stalked, chased, made to fight for his life, and ultimately murdered;
All proven lies but why bother with the truth. She is a politician after all.
Whereas Zimmerman raised a ‘‘self-defense’’ claim and Martin, as the deceased victim, was unable to rebut such claim;
OK, Are we against Stand Your ground or Self Defense or both? Get thy feces together!
Whereas Trayvon Martin’s brutal death and the inconceivable fact that his killer remains free should not be ignored;
That pesky judicial process that tried and found Zimmerman Not Guilty must be abolished!
Whereas Zimmerman’s unfounded assumptions and racial bias led to the use of deadly force
Whereas the only proof of racial bias actually came from the victim.
Whereas John F. Timoney, …..has declared Stand Your Ground laws to be a ‘‘recipe for disaster,’’
The same Timoney that was getting free SUVs from donors and resigned.
Whereas over 20 States have passed and implemented Stand Your Ground laws
30 more to go…give us time
Whereas Stand Your Ground laws dramatically and recklessly expand the right of citizens to use deadly force
And we cannot be acknowledging a Right for The people. That is kinda icky.
Whereas Stand Your Ground laws were drafted by organizations, corporations, and individuals that ignored advice
Whereas Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) apparently ignores that Stand Your ground is over 100 years old.
condemns unfounded reliance on Stand Your Ground laws to protect actions that extend far beyond historical use of self-defense;
Apparently over 100 years is not historical enough.
urges any State legislature to reject or repeal Stand Your Ground legislation;
Not even your State of Florida will do that as its citizens rather like the law.
So much dumb packed in three pages.
