"See Something...Say Something" NOT!!!

Recently a not so bright Florida citizen followed Big Sis Napolatano's admonition to: "If you see something; say something" and is in a heap of trouble with a price on his head. Apparently snitching out a possible "terrorist or criminal" to a government agency can backfire if the possible "terrorist" or crook is a member of a protected minority and winds up dead or damaged.

The media, namely NBC "News" (please forgive the sneer quotes) edited out a rather pertinent portion of the recorded 911 call George Zimmerman made while he was surveilling Trayvon Martin. The NBC version:
        Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

The unedited version:
        Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”

911 operator: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”

Zimmerman: “He looks black.”

The editing by NBC when accompanied by media publication of 3 year old photos of Martin  would appear to be an attempt to generate a racial component into an unfortunate sequence of events but with the benefit of a "twofer".
More to the point, however, this sort of invention of a conversation that never happened by splicing together two pieces of tape means that nothing the media is telling you can be accepted as true without independent proof irrespective of which side of the debate the alleged "report" is on.
Not only does the leftist media have a very rare white on black "crime" to report, but a golden opportunity to attack the "stand your ground" doctrine embedded into Florida law. The SPLC (Southern Probably Lying Center) must be orgasmic over this caper. The SPLC will probably overlook the  New Black Panther Party's call for the lynching of Zimmerman. Some things just do not change.

This humble reporter will go out on a limb with some unsolicited and gratuitous advice:
        1 Leave police work to the government costumed goons
        2 Do not  talk to the goons subsequent to having to defend yourself without your attorney present
        3 Mind your own business

Mr Zimmerman would not be in danger of his life had he followed ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ' 3 basic rules.
