In every sports event, there is a play or a player that affects the outcome. This is known as a game-changer.
Recently in the Trayvon Martin situation, there has been two game-changers, both of them supporting previous posts on the subject matter.
First, there was the apology issued by George Zimmerman. He came off as humble, repentant, and dare I say it likable! Far from the monster the Leftists have painted him, Zimmerman came off fairly well in the opinions of legal experts.
On the other hand, Trayvon Martin's parents came off as petty, refusing to accept his apology (in a statement issued by their lawyer). According to the lawyer, Zimmerman's apology was self-serving and insulting to the family. Of course, that's to be expected. He doesn't want to give the impression the apology was actually worthwhile.
Missing in this is what the parents actually thought. Issuing a statement through an attorney is still third-party communication instead of direct communication. After all, Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, said on "Today" she felt the shooting was an accident. Here is a direct quote from Fulton:
One of the things that I still believe in a person should apologize when they really...when they are actually remorseful for what they done. I believe it was an accident. I believe that it just got out of control and he couldn't turn the clock back.
She has since retracted her statement, saying she felt Zimmerman stalked and murdered her son. However, given the context of her original statement (which she claims was misconstrued), I don't think her retraction makes much sense. Might that have been the idea of a lawyer to issue a retraction? One can only guess, but my guess is it was a lawyer's idea.
The other game-changer involves the Leftist piece of monkey crap who said I "smeared" Trayvon's family by suggesting their copyrighting was meant purely as a protective measure. After a bit of digging, I found this piece. I quote from the piece:
According to applications filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office, the phrases “I am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon” were submitted the family’s attorney confirmed last week.
Fulton plans on using the slogans for DVDs and CDs memorializing the murdered teenager.
Hmmm...sure looks like my "smearing" had more than a ring of truth to it, given the only way for Fulton to make money would be to...copyright Trayvon's name! Funny how copyright law works, isn't it?
I won't expect an apology from you, Mr. Leftist Copycat. We both know you lack the guts and the honor to do it.
