The Murders Of Trayvon Martin - Five Yrs Later

So I've been writing about and documenting the high felonious crimes of so-called "law enforcement" in one format or another since 2006. I've also written of the victims of said crimes for just as long. And I have to tell you, I don't like writing about kids. I can't ignore those stories, but I don't like writing about them. I don't like having to write about dead Black and Latino kids, who've been murdered either by bastard-ass cops or racist vigilantes. It fucking sucks writing about it, and having to hear about it. All the more enraging when said child murders forever go unresolved... the killers to never be brought to justice. One of the most sickening cases I've ever written about, was that of Trayvon Bejamin Martin. Today marks the five-year anniversary of his murder. Like Quanice D. Hayes - gunned down by a wretched cop here in Portland earlier this month - Martin was also just 17 years old. Doesn't really matter who's in the White house...





















https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Trayvon_Martin

Now the reason I say 'murders' in the entry title, is because Martin suffered all the indignities that typically befall Black people whenever one is killed by police or racist vigilantes. Young Black children are not immune to such abuse and smearing. But in Martin's case, said indignities took on what seemed to be exceptionally cruel qualities. Indeed, Martin was murdered three times. First, he was physically murdered. Then, in numerous grotesque attacks - both on and off-line - which pre-dated what we now fully recognize as the Alt.-Right by several years, coordinated permissive racist smears, heartless character assassinations, and classic victim-blaming, Martin was murdered a second time. Then, he was murdered a third time when his murderer George Zimmerman was found "innocent" at trial. A "self-appointed" neighborhood watchman with an extensive criminal record for violence, threats, and general thuggery, Zimmerman should never have been on the streets in the first place. Much less armed. a White-Hispanic, Zimmerman benefited handsomely from White Supremacy, and still does. And despite several other violent criminal acts since Martin's death, Zimmerman remains a free man to this day. 

If you're reading this then you have to be already familiar with this horror story, whatever your political bent. What details that have been made public are easy to look up. The following is simply a basic run-down of events, and where things stand today. 

Headlines of the day: Initially, it wasn't even the murder itself, so much as local authorities refusal to arrest Zimmerman right away. Only after weeks of mounting national pressure, Martin's killer taken in and charged.

















Trayvon B. Martin had been a resident of Miami Gardens, FL, living with his mother Sabrina Fulton and older brother. His parents had divorced in 1999. In Feb. 2012, Martin was visiting his father Tracy Martin in Stanford, FL. Martin later went to visit his father's fiancee Brandy Green and her son, who lived in a gated community within Stanford. Later in the evening, Martin walked to a convenient store where he bought a bag of Skittles candy and an Arizona ice tea drink. As Martin was making his way back, Zimmerman was circling the neighborhood in his pick-up. He spotted Martin and immediately began stalking the youth. During this time Zimmerman called 911 and made a false report of a "suspicious Black male wearing a hoodie, probably in his 20's" (Martin was 17 years old. Anytime cops and racists pricks in general try and describe Black youths, they always dial the potential age waaay up). Against the 911 dispatcher's directive not to follow the "suspect", Zimmerman, who was 28 at the time, continued to pursue Martin. Moments later trouble-maker Zimmerman confronted Martin. An altercation broke out between the two, and Martin took rightful means to defend himself. At which point coward-ass Zimmerman pulled out a gun and shot Martin in the chest at close range. The teen was pronounced dead later that night.

This case had been deep-fried in racism from the very beginning, to its conclusion more than a year later. Zimmerman was questioned by Stanford police, but never arrested on the night of Martin's murder. Thanks to Florida's so-called "Stand Your Ground" law, the gunman was able to claim "self-defense". Cops refused to take him in, and local prosecutors refused to bring charges, despite the fact that Martin was never armed and committed no crimes. News of events gained national attention. Protests were held all over the country, including several in Stanford. Six weeks after Martin's death, and after public demands for justice, a governor-appointed special prosecutor finally indicted Zimmerman on a second degree murder charge. 

Unforgivable, inexcusable: the police/vigilante/racial terrorist murders of Black children has a long a sordid history in AmeriKKKa.
















Zimmerman's trial began on June 10th 2013. That trial ended on July 13th with Zimmerman being found "not guilty" by a jury of six people - all female, all White except for one Latina. Between Zimmerman's formal arrest and his trial's end, he bonded out of jail and went into hiding. Meanwhile, vile racists took up Zimmerman's cause and waged an on-line race war against the character of Trayvon Martin. Later becoming the sewer-base of the Alt-Right, racist nerds/furries/MLP fans managed to hack into Martin's social media accounts and post fake photos of Martin on-line. The character assassination against a dead Black teenager and murder victim proved to be relentless and sustained. It's also what would lead in large part to the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement.  





















But it hadn't been just a trigger-happy gunman, or the racist trolls who rallied behind him. The entire system did its part to do Martin in. From the SYG state law mostly benefiting White gun-owners, to complicit local cops, to a weak and corrupt prosecution, to a grossly flawed (and many people suspect, deliberately thrown) trial, Martin was doomed the moment he set foot in Stanford. And even him being dead just wasn't enough for some. Meanwhile, child-killer Zimmerman walked out of that courtroom a free man (so to speak). He is officially one of the most despised humans on Earth, and he'll be having to watch his back for the rest of his miserably damned life. Zimmerman has since gone on to develop a sort of perverse semi-celebritism, as scumbags who commit infamous acts are often want to do (i.e. fellow Floridian child-killer 
Casey Anthony).



And he's been milking it for all its worth. Two particularly ghoulish examples of this was when he visited Kel-Tec, a weapons manufacturer located in Cocoa,FL. It is the same factory that made the 9mm pistol Zimmerman used to kill Martin. The trip to that factory was a move that even his lawyer (the guy who helped win Zimmerman's acquittal) felt was too much! Later, he sold that very same gun in an on-line auction. When word of this became public, outrage ensued and many people placed fake bids. Ultimately, the weapon sold for a reported $250,000. The buyer remains anonymous to this day. This transaction took place in May 2016. This suggest that the handouts Zimmerman had been receiving from his racist supporters was running out, and he had to make a quick buck some how. Hell knows he's unemployable. And as mentioned before, Zimmerman has a criminal history of violence and threats that precedes Trayvon's murder. And since trial, he's also been busy adding to his criminal profile. Since 2013, Zimmerman has been arrested, cited, and questioned by police several times for incidents that included holding a girlfriend hostage, threatening an ex-wife, brandishing firearms in public, and threatening another motorist. 



Of course, neither his continuous run-ins with the law , nor the thousands of deserved death threats he receives, has stopped this revolting piece-of-shit from cashing in. On Sunday Feb. 26th, Zimmerman gave an interview to a sketchy on-line site called WeSearchr.com in which he was hard at work kissing Fox New's ass and polishing Donald Trump's balls. Now a person of mixed Hispanic origins shilling and groveling for Trump - has got to be the worst form of shameless coonery there is. No self-respect. No self-worth. Little Man Syndrome, scared as Hell, needs a gun like a baby needs a pacifier. Having to pick fights with children to make himself feel like a fucking man. And STILL SCARED, as he should be! Zimmerman is as lost as one can get. For the record, WeSearchr is owned by an individual named Charles C. Johnson. Feel free to look him up. As for Zimmerman - well I certainly would not want to trade places with him. Not for $250K. Not for all the cash in the world...

Portland Riot Cops Clash w/ Citizens in "Not My President's Day" Actions

Once again the full brunt of statist-police terror comes to bear here in Portland, OR.  























Anti-Trump actions quickly turned violent as units of heavily armed and armored riot gestapo shot "crowd control" weapons at citizens. The police assaults happened during President's Day actions held in downtown - today February 20th. Between 100-300 activists took part in a rally and march beginning around noon. Organized by Don't Shoot Portland, the "Not My President's Day" street action was meant to voice opposition to Trump's fascist advances, as well as repeat demands of justice for Quanice D. Hayes. Hayes was a 17 year old Black teen gunned down by Portland cop Andrew Hearst back on Feb. 9th 2017. 





























From today's "unpermitted" march opposing Trump and Police terror:






















Riot cops fired "less-than-lethal" projectiles at the marchers. They also tackled and arrested several people. Citizen-captured video shows one woman standing off against a wall of riot cops while on the sidewalk, then being apprehended. Police thugs were also captured on video pepper-spraying and roughing up marchers... even as people remained on the sidewalk. Meanwhile, other "Not My President's Day" actions took place around the country, as many thousands of citizens took advantage of the federal holiday to 'Keep The Momentum' and make opposition to Trump known and loud. And while anti-police sentiment was rightfully voiced here in Portland, immigration, women's rights, and climate change were more the focus in other cities. At least 30 U.S. cities saw major President's Day actions, including Seattle, NYC, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Atlanta.

The Murder of Quanice Hayes

I first did a brief write-up on the police murder of Quanice Derrick Hayes here in Portland last week. You can read that entry: HERE. Much local attention has been paid to this story, for damned good reason. Here's what you need to know:





























Hayes was gunned down by officer Andrew Hearst, gang member of the Portland Police Gestapo, (PPG) on Thursday morning February 9th 2017. Hayes was 17 years old and Black. Hearst is White. This racial police murder took place near NE 82nd Ave. and Handcock. More than a week after Hayes' death, details remain sketchy. With no apparent video recordings and no [known] witnesses, the only account from that day has come from the Portland Police regime. Hayes was shot by Hearst at least three times. On the Sunday following Hayes' murder, about 100 people gathered for a vigil in the teen's honor. Mourners included his mother Venus Hayes, who spoke on her son's behave. On Thursday February 16th, one week after Hayes' murder, hundreds of people held a rally and march demanding justice for Hayes and his killer to be brought to justice. The rally began in the South Park blocks then marchers made their way through down town Portland. Because the march had been "unpermitted" (i.e. you don't need permission from the city to protest injustice), cops in riot gear armed with war weapons harassed the marchers for several hours. One person was reportedly arrested.

According to official statements from the Portland Police Terrorist regime, Hayes' was a "robbery suspect". Cops also produced a replica fake gun, which they claim was found at the scene. Cops must be telling the truth here, because heaven knows police would never plant guns, or other "evidence" on dead suspects in order to justify their killings! Pig Hearst was given paid vacation, following his killing of Hayes. In 2013, Hearst also murdered a man using an AR-15 assault weapon. The victim, Merle Hatch, was going through a mental health crisis at the time. He was reportedly holding a broken telephone receiver, which Hearst had "mistaken" for a deadly weapon. Hearst was cleared of all wrong-doing in that incident. Meanwhile, the Hayes murder case won't go before a grand jury for several weeks, at least

A makeshift memorial has been set up in between Banfield Pet Hospital and a shuttered DMV building along NE 82nd Ave. in remember the slain teen. Killed By Police.net. Quanice Derrick Hayes is was the 137th victim of police murder this year... so far.

Pregnant Teen Tased By Cop in NYC

Leave it to bastard-ass cops to reach new lows in humanity. A 17 year old pregnant girl was tasered by a worthless cop in The Bronx, NYC. This shocking (no pun intended) act of violence occurred on Friday February 10th 2017.

Welcome to Trump's America: same as the old America!































The victim has been identified as Dailene Rosario, a Bronx resident. She was reportedly 14 weeks along, but doctors have assured her the baby is fine. This disgusting assault was witnessed by dozens of citizens, and video of the assault has been captured. You can view it: HERE. As of now, the pig who deployed the taser has not been publicly identified. The entire indecent began on Friday night Feb. 10th around 10:00pm, when police were summoned to an alleged disturbance at the apartment complex where Rosario was living. According to reports, two young men - one of them Rosario's boyfriend - had gotten into a fight over a video game. When cops arrived, there had already been dozens of onlookers, including Rosario. At this point details get a bit sketchy, but it's been confirmed that cops attempted to enter Rosario's apt. without a warrant. When she rightfully refused them entry, cops started grabbing her. It was at this point that she was tasered, despite witnesses claiming that the girl was visibly pregnant. 


























Rosario was charged with resisting arrest, harassment, and disorderly conduct. She was released the following day with a court date for March 28th 2017. The pig [unidentified] who tased the teen girl has been placed on paid vacation, and no other cops are facing disciplinary measures from the incident. There seems to be no word on whether the two young men involved in the original scuffle are facing charges.

Black Portland Teen Murdered By Cop Over Fake Gun

A teen here in Portland, OR was gunned down by a cop. Official word from the Portland Police Gestapo (PPG) is that the teen was a robbery suspect and "armed" with a fake replica gun - thus - justifying his death.

Rest In Peace: 17 Yr. old police murder
victim Quanice Hayes, seen here with 
his girlfriend Katherine Cook. 

The killing happened on Thursday February 9th 2017 along 82nd Ave. The murder victim has been identified as Quanice Hayes. He was 17 years old. The pig who murdered him has been identified as officer Andrew Hearst, who is white. Hayes was Black. Portland Police alleged Hayes was a robbery suspect and "armed" with a fake replica gun. Hayes is the first Black person to have been gunned down by Portland cops in nearly seven years, since Keaton Dupree Otis was murdered by cops in the March 2010, in the Lloyd district. Following standard police procedure, pig Hearst has been placed on paid vacation. Shockingly (or perhaps not so), this is not Hearsts' first killing. In 2013 Hearst shot and killed Merle Hatch, a White man. Hatch was allegedly "armed" with a broken telephone receiver. In both that case, as well as his most recent killing, Hearst claimed his life was "in danger".
