Beep Beep Beep!
I'm going to tread into dangerous waters here, but I don't care. So strap on in.
Over the weekend when two black teens were arrested in Brunswick, Georgia for the murder of Antonio Santiago, the little boy in the baby stroller, the country as a whole shook their heads at the sadness of the whole situation. Meanwhile George Zimmerman's brother, Whothefuckcares Zimmerman, went to Twitter to expound on his philosophical wisdom. You know, wisdom like yeah because my brother shot a kid for threatening his life with skittles and tea and there's a picture of the kid flipping off a camera so well then the other kid who allegedly shot the baby between the eyes is just like the kid George wasted so therefore the world is safer without either of them. And oh yeah, they're both black! Nice non sequitor there, Whothefuckcares!
If there was ANY doubt why George Zimmerman followed Trayvon Martin around the skittles banned gated community and got into an altercation and then shot dead the tea carrying interloper, well then, there isn't now. The Zimmerman family sounds like both George and Who were raised to not trust skittles eaters, tea drinkers or black kids. Poor Trayvon hit the trifecta by crossing paths with Paul Blart Zimmerman. Hey, Who, the only ones giving you handjobs are Hannity and the rest of the racists at Fox. So STFU. That's twitterspeak, right?
As for the murder of poor little 13 month old Antonio Santiago, out for a walk in a stroller with Mom, Sherry West,when two black teens accosted Ms. West, demanded money, shot her in the leg, then shot her baby right in the forehead before running away. Goddammit, justice is demanded say the tabloid news channels. Arrest these two murderous bastards NOW! Give us something NOW! Nancy Grace is bored with that chick in Arizona who self defended herself by stabbing her boyfriend, shooting him in the head, slitting his throat, cleaning up the self defense scene, and dumping the gun in the desert and now has PTSD. Nancy needs some nice fresh meat to devour. So 17 year old De'Marquise Elkins and a 15 year old were taken in as the main suspects. Great job, Brunswick Police!
Ok so let's see, mother shot in leg and lives , baby shot in head and dies. Two black kids did it. Hmmmm....I hate to be a lynch party pooper here but my horseshit detector has been beeping since about 5 seconds after I heard about this horrific case. Susan Smith, Charles Stewart, numerous other bullshit cases have all blamed the proverbial "black guy" for murders THEY committed. I am not in any way suggesting Sherry West shot her own baby, or hired somebody to shoot little Antonio. However when I see thing like this getting ignored by the tabloid cable news networks anxious to get onto the next sensational case I wonder aloud. The "this" is:
Firstcoastnews.com interviewed Ashley Glassey, the 21-year-old daughter of West, who told the station that the night of the shooting, West asked her how soon a life insurance policy would send her a check. "She changed her story she told me the baby was shot first and then she told me she was shot first," Glassey told the station.
I don't know about you, but as a long time watcher of both 24, and Homicide Life on The Streets, I would love to see either Jack Bauer or Frank Pembleton get Ms. West into the "box" for a few questions. I know I have LOTS!
