Trayvon Martin “Deserved” to be Shot!

26 Mar

I’ve been thinking it for a long time and why no-one says it, is beyond me!

If, it’s not raining don’t wear your hoodie over your head YOU CRIMINAL!

We have all seen the news photo of people who deliberately plan to commit crimes and most have a hoodie over their head to hide their face.

Trayvon Martin was no different!

He was an impressionable youth watching TV, music video’s, and living life in 2012. Those that we put up on a pedestal are music musicians, actors, athletes, and for whatever reason everyone in media, Hollywood films, yadda yadda, glorifies putting a hoodie over your head as “Sexy”, “Cool”!

The facts of this case are simple. Zimmerman is a racist nut-job who is a wannabe cop, thus the 300 calls to 911 as a neighborhood watch-master Captain America in his own head. Trayvon is a kid who like many of American society’s confused kids wears his hoodie over his head for a fashion statement. Trayvon is also a cocky young kid who doesn’t know when to run as his girlfriend suggested and when to not confront others. Trayvon confronted and the other guy Zimmerman who had more fire power than fists, shot him dead. Who hit who first, or last isn’t known.

It’s very possible Treyvon attacked Zimmerman! It’s very possible Trayvon is the one who was the aggressor and Zimmerman was only defending himself. Sure, he never should have been following Treyvon to begin with but that in itself is not a crime. What if Zimmerman was an 85 year old lady who was following Trayvon. Would most of you change your mind, and say, she’s just an crazy old bird, ignore her.

Why is it that everyone is so quick to act as judge and jury when you haven’t the foggiest clue of what really happened? Who says Treyvon is not to blame?!

News is coming out now about how there was a fist fight. So, it’s easy to conclude that there was not just a following and shooting scenario, there was a following , fist fight, shooting scenario.

Should Zimmerman be charged with murder? Trayvon didn’t have a gun. Zimmerman got his assed kicked by the 17 year old. And he finished the fight with his gun. At what point do you have the right to defend yourself by whatever means necessary? I say no. Trayvon should have ran but instead opted to confront his follower.

The bigger picture is Trayvon and society acceptance of wearing a hoodie in plain daylight and no adverse weather!

Perhaps the Grand Jury should be trying to put in jail all of the media, music executives and any of American society which glamorizes “famous” in looking like criminals!

I say, how about we make it legal for anyone to shoot anyone wearing a hoodie and it’s not raining or cold!

To Tweet or Not to Tweet – The Twitter Dilemma

30 May

Well I finally broke down and joined Twitter.

I’ve always been the type of person to resist new technology, to resist change, to try and keep my life in a nice neat little envelope. Afterall my cassette player works just fine. Why would I want a CD player. My Myspace page was just fine, why do I need to join Facebook?

And here I am again, life, technology, social networking has now advanced once again and I’m faced with the dilemma to advance with it or stay in my nice little nest. It comes in the name of Twitter!

Twitter is a website, where you can “follow” other people’s lives where in brief “tweets” they post about what they are doing, thoughts and snip-its about their lives. A little like Facebook, but more in real time, little bursts or snapshots of life.

Today is my second day and so far I have to say I like it. The problem with Facebook is that it is geared pretty much for only your friends and family. But with Twitter you can follow anybody! I find this incredibly interesting. When I lived in New York City, one of my very favorite things to do would be to sit on the pillar wall outside the GM Building where the Apple store now is, across from the Plaza Hotel, which was on 5’th Ave and Central Park South. This spot is in my opinion the center of the universe. Lots of people walking by. Tourists, business people, shoppers, and every life form known to man passed this location. I’d sit on the wall and “observe”. Like a fly on the wall, I’d watch the people walking by, listen to their conversations, and try to figure out what the person was all about in the 10 seconds it took for them to enter the viewing zone, pass in front of me, and then exit the viewing zone. I found it fascinating!

So far Twitter is providing me the same thrill. I am “following” about 40 people so far. Mostly professional track & field stars who are traveling around the world. Okay, I’ll admit it, female track stars. Not sure how my fascination with track people came about. Perhaps because they all are in very good shape and have hot bodies. ha ha! I’m sure I will move into other areas like fashion models shortly too. I don’t think I will follow movie stars. I’ve never been impressed with actors as I don’t think what they do is anything special. They pretend to be someone else and this to me is nothing extraordinary. Track & Field athletes however in my opinion do, do something special. They hone their bodies into finely tuned machines that perform incredible actions that very few can duplicate. I’m impressed with their determination, training, mental mindsets. As a former athlete in college (Baseball), I have respect for what it takes to be great in track.

So, at least for now, I am officially Tweeting on Twitter and liking it. No-one is following me yet, but I don’t have much to say anyway. Ha! Okay, maybe I do, but it would come across as arrogant to admit it.

Happy Tweeting!
