Trayvon Martin was killed by neighborhood watch activist George Zimmermann. Police accepted Zimmermann’s claim of self defense. Now the political correctness crowd and the Black Rights movement latched on to the case and demand George Zimmermann’s arrest and conviction. Unopposed and unpunished, the New Black Panther organisation has offered a bounty to hunt down Zimmermann for unnamed purposes. And there is an unspoken assumption that Trayvon would be justified to physically attack Zimmermann had he used any racial slur.
Was it Self Defense or not?
If Trayvon Martin seriously attacked George Zimmermann, then it was self defense. If Zimmermann approached and attacked Trayvon Martin, then it was not self defense.
We can not give the final answer to this question. In a few weeks we hopefully have forensic analysis of the 911 calls, of the Trayvon Martin’s body (to see if he has signs of having hit Zimmermann) and of Zimmermann’s injuries (if this proof has not been lost due to lack of initial police investigation), and of witness statements.
Initially we were quite convinced by Trayvon Martin FAQ that Trayvon did seriously attack Zimmermann. Also note Zimmermann made 40 police reports already, without ever shooting anyone.

But now a police video shows Zimmermann with no blood or visible injury. Well, we hope (for Zimmermann’s sake) that there is a good explanation, that he got his wounds expertly treated before the video. We could say that if Zimmermann embellished the beating story, that still does not mean that he was not viciously attacked. Like fanatic feminists: "Yes Nafissatou Diallo told dozens of lies about the alleged rape, other rapes, immigration. This does not mean that she wasn’t raped by Dominque Strauss-Kahn"). But it would seriously undermine George Zimmermann’s credibility. If he is an over-zealous racist vigilante, who shoots an innocent boy, let him get punished.
A few Pro-Trayvon press reports:

Maybe they both were no good? But, once more, we have no investment in either position. We want the TRUTH to be found.
Manipulative press reports due to political correctness?
We see elements of manipulation: seemingly 17 year old Trayvon Martin has only 3 year old photos where he looks like an inoffensive boy, while Zimmermann seems only to have a criminally looking mug shot. And why does no-one clarify Trayvon’s school suspensions (I have never been suspended in school. Have you?).
Justifying black violence
If Zimmermann followed Trayvon, if he, God beware even used the N word, then most people would take it for granted that Trayvon Martin had the right to whoop Zimmermann.
It is interesting, the black (?) commentators write that the white guy attacked with a broken bottle. I clearly see him as defensive in the video, trying to keep the black aggressors away from him and only breaking the bottle after being attacked by multiple attackers.
Typically, black violence is seen as justified against the historic white oppressor. (See the Rodney King case). Similarly, women that kill 2 3 4 or mutilate sleeping husbands are excused as acting in self defense, as victims of alleged violence.
This rage is fed by political correctness ideology. Blacks are told that the reason for all black hardship lies in discrimination by the evil white man. This feeds the rage against the oppressor. If Black poverty and other disadvantages were attributed to their own behavior, their own lower iq and lower impulse control, they would not feel justified to lash back. The same hate is created in women when they believe the pay gap is due to patriarchal oppression and not to female choice, lower work hours, less risk.
Bounty to capture Zimmermann!? To lynch him?
The New Black Panther Party has offered a $10,000 reward for the ‘capture’ of George Zimmerman.
The group’s leader Mikhail Muhammad said the bounty was ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’.
At a rally for slain teenager Trayvon Martin, the Black Panthers called for 10,000 black men to hunt down Zimmerman, Martin’s shooter who has not been charged over the killing.
Mr. Muhammad said at the gathering in Sanford that his group was planning to apprehend the killer itself.
‘If the government won’t do the job, we’ll do it,’ he said. 2
The police does not want him, he is not in hiding from police. He probably is hiding form the New Black Panthers and other racist extremists.
What would they capture him for? They can not hand him to police. Probably they would kill him. In justified revenge rage against the with oppressor.
So far, no Rico charges. Since the Ku Klux Klan has been disbanded, there are no moderate whites who would call for a "one million whites" march, to protest the organized hate crime group. This is a proven call for violence by an organized group. Very different from the million hoodie walks about an uncertain case.
Whites allow and whitewash black violence, just as males allow and forgive female violence.
