But as I aged, I learned that lying only led to more troubles and issues. It took a while but I finally got to the point where I would tell the truth at all costs, even if it hurt me badly. People can forgive and accept the truth a lot easier than a lie. Once I became a Christian, I knew that lying would no longer be an option for me. Don't get me wrong, I can't honestly post here that I haven't lied recently. But what I will say is that I didn't intentionally lie or commit a premeditated act of lying.
That leads me to the Trayvon Martin case. I read that George Zimmerman thought that this whole thing would just blow over. Seriously? You executed an unarmed child and thought that it would just blow over as though you stole his bag of Skittles? But it hasn't blown over and it won't anytime soon.
So now Zimmerman's mouthpieces, his lawyer and another friend, are claiming self-defense and talking about what an absolute great guy George Zimmerman is. Surely the shooting of Trayvon was in self-defense because anything else would be out of line with George's impeccable character. Again, really? His dad is a former judge. George Zimmerman has had three charges erased from his record, one a domestic violence charge. A goody two shoes indeed. Zimmerman's version of events is devoid of logic and reason. He stalked Trayvon, confronted him and eventually killed him.
Of course, in his mind, this was a young, black male that didn't really count so no one would be harmed by his death..except maybe his family. But old Georgie boy didn't anticipate millions of people getting involved and shedding light on his crime. So, how does he handle it? He starts a series of lies to cover his murderous butt.
He's now saying that Trayvon was the aggressor, punched him in the nose for no reason, got on top of him and banged his head into the pavement, prompting him to pull out a 9mm gun and shoot him. In one unconfirmed report Zimmerman is quoted as saying that Trayvon tried to get his gun. When you're trying to build a self-defense response to a crime and it unravels, what's a murderer to do? Lie, and then lie some more.
Keep your eyes and ears open to this because you can rest assured that as more details emerge, more lies will be spewed.
