The defendant’s friend, Frank Taaffe, described the defendant’s state of mind the night that he stalked and killed Trayvon Martin.
He was mad as hell and he wasn’t going to take it anymore.
Given that Taaffe uttered this statement after he found out about the shooting, I believe we can reasonably assume that he believed the defendant pursued and confronted Trayvon with murder in mind.
Why did he believe that?
Why was the defendant so angry?
What was it that the defendant was not going to take anymore?
I have puzzled over Taaffe’s statement ever since I heard him say it.
Despite a lack of objective evidence that would support a belief that the gated neighborhood was besieged by burglars and thieves, the defendant appears to have believed that was actually happening, or he pushed that false narrative in hopes of creating a justification for the Homeowner’s Association to hire him to provide security.
He also appears to have believed that the burglars and thieves were Black and they always got away.
Frank Taaffe told us that the defendant was mad as hell about that and he was going to put an end to it.
The defendant said during the NEN call, “fucking coons,” and “these assholes, they always get away.”
This explains why he got out of his vehicle and hunted for Trayvon, ignoring the dispatcher’s request not to follow him.
Indeed, we can see by his actions that he was “mad as hell.” Acting as police officer, prosecutor, jury, judge and executioner the defendant decided that Trayvon was one “fucking coon,” one “asshole” who wasn’t going to get away.
A little over two minutes after the defendant ended the NEN call, after telling the dispatcher to have the officer call his cell phone when he arrived in the neighborhood, he hunted Trayvon down and shot him to death as Trayvon was telling Dee Dee about the creepy man who stalked and frightened him.
Trayvon never found out who he was or why he stalked and attacked him.
He died in the dark and cold rain begging for his life and shrieking in terror and disbelief.
Although Trayvon was a good kid, it would not have mattered if he were the Devil incarnate.
He was unarmed and he did nothing except try to escape from a creepy man who stalked him, first in a vehicle and then on foot.
The defense effort to demonize him and his family disgusts and infuriates me.
Demonizing Trayvon, even if successful, is not a defense and evidence of bad acts or character, assuming such evidence exists, is not admissible.
Defense counsel deserve harsh criticism and universal condemnation for pursuing this incredibly depraved and unnecessary course of action.
By attempting to exploit racial stereotypes and race-driven fear of Black males in a high publicity case, Mark O’Mara, Don West and everyone who supports what they do give us all a bad name.
Let there be thunder across this land that makes the mountains tremble,
Justice for Trayvon
