40 Yr Old White Man Beaten to Critical Condition by 20 Blacks on His Own Porch

40 Yr Old White Man Beaten to Critical Condition by 20 Blacks on His Own Porch

I guess I’m going to be able to post at least one of these type of stories per day now, it seems.

Get armed, stay armed. Better to be judged by 12 rather then carried by 6.

How, oh how is this one going to be spun to become justified?  Was he “profiling”? Was he “following”, against the orders of a dispatch officer?

MOBILE, Alabama –

Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he’s in critical condition.

According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.

Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.

Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. “It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.” Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.”

Police will only say “multiple people” are involved.

What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said..

“Now thats justice for Trayvon.”

Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.

Police canvassed the area, but did not find any suspects. They’re asking anyone with information to call them at 251-208-7211, Crime Stoppers at 251-208-7000, or text a tip to 274637 and include the keyword CRIME 411.

Shooting in Sanford, FL – White Victim Called a Racial Slur, Shot At, Then Pistol Whipped, But then Arrested For 1st Attempted Murder: Attacker is Black

Shooting in Sanford, FL – White Victim Called a Racial Slur, Shot At, Then Pistol Whipped, But then Arrested For 1st Attempted Murder: Attacker is Black

From http://www.clickorlando.com

SANFORD, Fla. -

Witnesses say a shooting at a Sanford apartment complex that led to one man being arrested and the other critically injured, could have started from a racial comment.

Police said Corey Michael Rose, 30, was in an altercation with Brandon Long at the  Cedar Creek Apartments around 5 p.m. Monday.

Witnesses said Long, who is African-American, according to police reports, called Rose, who is white, a racial slur before hitting Rose in the face with his .40 caliber Glock.

“He came from behind the guy and pistol-whipped him and the man was bloody,” said witness Browdy Smith.

Police said Long pointed the gun at Rose. Rose pulled out a gun from his pants and the two hid behind cars. Rose then sought out Long and shot him multiple times, according to the police report.

Long was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center with multiple gunshot wounds.

Rose has been charged with attempted first degree murder, criminal attempt to solicit conspire and carrying a concealed weapon.

The altercation comes on the heels of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. Martin was unarmed when Zimmerman shot Martin, claiming he was attacked and it was in self-defense.

Witnesses said from what they saw, Rose acting in self-defense.

“I hate to see him go to jail, because that was self defense,” Smith said.

But Sanford Police Sgt. Dave Morgenstern said the chain of events doesn’t exactly point to a self-defense claim.

“It’s not really self defense whenever you go chase the person down who’s hiding behind a car, you go around the car and fire more shots at the person, that’s not self defense,” Morgenstern said.

It’s not clear what Long’s condition is. Rose was arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder, criminal attempt to solicit conspire and carrying a concealed weapon.

SANFORD, Fla. — A 30-year-old man in Sanford is accused of shooting his neighbor in the chest.

Corey Rose told officials he was being nosy when he heard his neighbor, Brandon Long, arguing outside.

The shooting happened at Cedar Creek Apartments, and Rose’s neighbors said the shooting could be a self-defense case.

“The guy (Long) ran up on him and hit him with the gun,” said Rose’s neighbor. “His gun fell apart, basically, and everyone was warning him (Rose) ‘Turn around, turn around! He’s trying to get you!’ That’s when he (Rose) defended himself and shot back.”

The neighbors said as Rose walked away with a gash on his head, Long tried to shoot Rose.

“The guy was obviously going to shoot him first,” said Rose’s neighbor. “He was in the process of trying to put his gun back together.”

Rose told authorities Long did shoot at him, and that’s when he got his own gun and fired at him.

Police said Rose went too far by shooting and then going after Long and shooting multiple times.

“To turn around and chase someone and turn around and fire shots, then follow them around a car and fire more shots — that’s not self-defense,” said Morgenstern. “You’re actually chasing the person down.”

Rose is being held on no bond, and the judge said she needed to know more before she could find probable cause on the attempted murder charge.

Rose is being held for 24 hours for illegally being in possession of a concealed weapon, while the state figures out its paperwork.

SANFORD, Fla. —

Sanford police said an overnight shooting is not a case of the “stand your ground” law.

Detectives said Corey Rose was pistol-whipped at the Cedar Creek apartments on Hartwell Avenue, and he then shot the man who attacked him.

However, Rose is the one facing charges.

Police said 30-year-old Rose was outside his apartment when he heard two people yelling.

According to an arrest affidavit, Rose “wanted to be nosy and see what the altercation was about.”

That’s when police said one of the men in the argument, Brandon Long, pulled out a gun.

“He was trying to fire at him as the white guy was walking away and everybody was yelling at him, ‘Turn around! Turn around! He is trying to shoot you!'” Cedar Creek resident John McCrone said.

Investigators said Long called Rose a racial slur and pistol-whipped him, breaking the gun.

However, the reason why Sanford police said it’s not a case of “stand your ground” is because Long ran away and hid behind a car, but Rose, who also had a gun, followed him and shot him until Long collapsed.

“That’s not ‘stand your ground.’ That’s attempted murder,” said Sgt. David Morgenstern of the Sanford Police Department.

Long is in stable condition at Orlando Regional Medical Center and Rose is behind bars.

But residents said Rose shouldn’t be in jail because Long pointed the gun first.

Police disagree.

“If you are standing your ground, you are standing your ground. You are not running after somebody,” said Morgenstern.

Rose is in jail with no bail on charges of attempted murder and not having a concealed weapons permit.

I’m sorry for having to link the videos. I much prefer to grab videos and post them through Youtube, because videos tend to just disappear.

You have a man (white) walking outside of his house to check out a noisy altercation, when he sees the situation decides to turn around and not get involved.  You then have another man (black) seeing a white man being nosy and proceeds to pull a gun and aim it at the back of the white man who is walking away.  It is questionable whether the black man fires at the white man based on witnesses.  The black man proceeds to rush the white man from behind, call him a racial slur (what on earth could that be? If it was a white guy calling a black man a racial slur, we would all know what he said) and then pistol whip the white man.

At this time the white man does pull an illegally concealed gun (no concealed weapon permit) from the waist of his pants and proceeds to defend himself.  Both men hide and take bunker positions. Witnesses say that the black man’s gun fell apart when he hit the white man. How a gun falls apart, I’m not sure. I would guess that witness saw the gun lose it’s clip.  At which time witnesses say the black man, hunkering, was putting his gun back together (putting the clip back in). The white man decides to not hide and be gunned down by a black man that has already pointed a gun his way, possibly shot at him once already and pistol whipped him, by leaving his bunker position to neutralize the black man before the black man can do the same.

White man is arrested for 1st degree attempted murder because he survived and self defended

Does something seem messed up about this to anyone else?

Granted, Rose (the white guy) isn’t in the military or is a cop, but the concept of neutralize before your are neutralized is a universal concept.

Where is the reports that Long (the black guy) is being charged with pointing a weapon at someone, firing at someone, racial profiling, assault and battery with a gun (felony) and let’s not forget a federal hate crime?

No?

What We Can Expect as the Steps to the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman Case

What We Can Expect as the Steps to the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman Case

STEP 1 – Now that Zimmerman is in custody, he has a “first appearance” before a judge

* Zimmerman had his first appearance at 1:30 p.m. Thursday April 12, 2012.
* First appearance hearings have to happen within 24 hours of someone’s arrest.
* The judge read the charges, so Zimmerman is clear about the crimes he is accused of.
* The judge addressed Zimmerman’s right to counsel.  Zimmerman has hired Mark O’Mara.

STEP 2 – Zimmerman’s bond

* Second-degree murder is considered a “nonbondable” offense because the maximum penalty is life in prison.
* Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, asked for an “Arthur hearing” in an attempt to get bond set.
* At the “Arthur hearing,” the burden was on the prosecutors to show that Zimmerman should not be given bond.

To meet that burden, they had to present evidence to support no bond.
If the prosecutors fail to meet the burden, the judge will look at other factors to decide whether to set bond. Those factors include Zimmerman’s ties to the community, whether he’s a flight risk and whether he’s a danger to the community.
* This hearing was an opportunity for the defense to see the prosecution’s evidence against Zimmerman.

—————————————————————————————————–

The Defense has yet to have discovery, so any evidence that the state is sitting on hasn’t been shown to the defense.  This was the first opportunity for the state to use any evidence they have that incriminates Zimmerman to keep him from being bonded out.  The state provided no evidence but rather relied on the affidavit which also provides no evidence.  The judge even said as much that he is more familiar with affidavits having more substance.  At this point every and any evidence that has come to light backs up Zimmerman’s claims.  The state, if it had damaging evidence against Zimmerman’s claims, had the opportunity to put Zimmerman’s bond request in jeopardy.  The state provided no evidence.  Why? Because the state was being nice?  Or, the state has absolutely no evidence that doesn’t actually support Zimmerman?  It seems the prosecution is standing on “Trayvon is dead because Zimmerman followed him, and caused Trayvon to attack Zimmerman.”  Lunacy!

—————————————————————————————————–

STEP 3 – Arraignment

* The arraignment appears to have been set for April 29, 20012.

* Zimmerman may or may not appear in open court for his arraignment.

Often the defendant will waive the appearance at the actual court hearing and his attorney can enter a written plea of not guilty on his behalf.
* Zimmerman will be arraigned and must enter a plea on the charges, most likely “not guilty” (at this stage, defendants almost never plead guilty).

In fact, O’Mara has already indicated that publicly.

STEP 4 – Defense files a motion to dismiss based on “stand your ground” law

* Zimmerman is entitled to a pretrial evidentiary hearing on whether he can use the stand your ground immunity.

* The burden at that hearing is on the defense to prove by “a preponderance of the evidence” (meaning it’s more likely than not) that Zimmerman was justified in using deadly force.

In Florida, an individual can use deadly force anywhere (with no duty to retreat) as long as he/she:
– is not engaged in an unlawful activity;

– is being attacked in a place he/she has a right to be; and

– reasonably believes that his/her life and safety is in danger.

* The judge decides whether Zimmerman’s actions were justified and therefore entitle him to the stand your ground immunity.

If the judge finds the force was justifiable, then the charges are dismissed and Zimmerman is immune from further criminal prosecution and, possibly, civil liability.
If the judge finds the force was not justifiable, then the charges against Zimmerman move forward (see steps 5 and 6 below)
* If the judge rules Zimmerman is immune, the prosecution can appeal that decision to a higher court.

—————————————————————————————————–

Zimmerman will probably not be found immune to prosecution due to ‘stand your ground’ due to a loophole the prosecution will attempt to create.

Florida Statutes:  JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE 776.013 

(3) A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

Here is where the loophole may be attempted. From the Defense argument, Zimmerman was returning to his vehicle and with Trayvon’s attack, prevented Zimmerman’s retreat.  In this scenario every aspect of the Stand your Ground statute has been fulfilled.  I suspect the prosecution will actually attempt to use the facts that Trayvon WAS on top of Zimmerman, so no ability to retreat was present, therefore Zimmerman couldn’t have “stood his ground”, and therefor this is a self defense case instead.

—————————————————————————————————–

“Stand your ground” vs. self-defense:
possible legal arguments in the case of State of Florida v. Zimmerman

Incident

Self-defense argument

“Stand your ground” argument

Neighborhood watch co-captain George Zimmerman sees a stranger in the Sanford community. He calls 911, pursues Martin to “keep eyes” on the suspect so to be able to relay proper information to the police and the operator cautions him not to follow. 

Partially relevant. Following Martin may  weaken the self-defense argument, but only if evidence is provided that shows Zimmerman initiated a confrontation with Martin. Prosecution also has to provide evidence that Zimmerman continued pursuit of Martin which is not currently supported by the 911 call, in that Zimmerman can clearly be heard ceasing his pursuit seconds after being suggested to do so and responds with “ok”.

Not relevant. Following somebody is not provocation to get punched.

Zimmerman is carrying a concealed weapon.

Not relevant.

Not relevant. Outside of Zimmerman’s legal right to carry a firearm, Zimmerman was also not “on duty” in the capacity as a neighborhood watchmen when this situation occurred. If he had been “on duty”, it would have been a violation of Neighborhood Watch code of conduct, which may have resulted in Zimmerman’s dismissal from the Neighborhood Watch, but would still not have been a crime.

Zimmerman allegedly confronts Trayvon Martin.

Relevant. Under Florida law if you are the first aggressor in a confrontation, you forfeit the right to self-defense. The prosecution would have to provide evidence that Zimmerman was the first physical aggressor. Again, following some one doesn’t fulfill the definition as being the first aggressor. Following somebody is not provocation to get punched.

Relevant.

Zimmerman claims he was returning to his truck when Martin confronted him, then punched him.

Relevant. According to George Zimmerman’s version, he was punched without provocation. Following somebody is not provocation to get punched. While  on the ground being pinned and having his (Zimmerman’s) head slammed into the concrete, he couldn’t retreat even under the old law if he wanted to.

Relevant. This is where Martin can stand his ground and not retreat into the car.

According to Zimmerman, Martin punches him and brings him to the ground.

Relevant.

Relevant. “The real issue [in Stand Your Ground] is what happens around the 60 seconds prior to the shooting.” (Ed Griffith, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office,Tampa Bay Times)

Someone is heard in the 911 tapes calling for help.

Relevant. If it’s Zimmerman, it bolsters self-defense. If it’s Martin, it undermines self-defense.

Relevant. If it’s Zimmerman, it bolsters self-defense. It presents Zimmerman using deadly force as a last resort, in that, in the 911 tapes a person can be heard screaming for help for 45 seconds.  This doesn’t include the amount of time that preceded the beginning of the recording, that caused the caller to make the 911 call.  This would not support a claim that Zimmerman hunted Martin down.

If it’s Martin, it undermines self-defense.

Aspects of the prosecution’s arguments that George Zimmerman pursued Trayvon Martin do not meet the required “First Aggressor” standards that would void ‘stand your ground’.  Furthermore the argument that following anyone deletes a person’s ability to self defend is ridicules.  This would mean that Zimmerman would’ve had to have fore-knowledge that Trayvon was going to attack him and that he was choosing to place himself in peril.   All citizens have an expectation, if legally within property, not to be attacked by another person.  Just as words or an argument has never been a justification for physical aggression in the courts, so too is pursuing a person not justification.  If this was so, there would be a lot of cases dealing with a member of the media being physically attacked because they asked questions that angered the attacker and/or pursuing the attacker in attempt to gain an interview or answers.  The cases would be thrown out because the media person basically “had it coming to them”. This is obviously not the case. In a nut shell, no matter what your “feelings” are, no one has justifiable rights to attack someone because they are annoying, saying things that anger you or following.  Trayvon Martin meets none of the aspects of ‘stand your ground’ besides having the right to be where he was. 

Zimmerman’s police call: The “pursuit” starts at 2:05

911 calls before the shot:

STEP 5 – Pretrial

* Both the prosecution and defense could file a slew of pretrial motions in the case that deal with anything and everything from turning over documents and evidence to keeping certain evidence out at trial. It is too early to tell.

STEP 6 – Trial

* Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder.

To convict someone of second-degree murder prosecutors have to prove several things beyond a reasonable doubt.
– First, that Trayvon Martin is dead.

– Second, that George Zimmerman’s criminal act caused Trayvon Martin’s death.

– Third, that Zimmerman knew his actions were reasonably certain to kill, that he committed the act with a depraved mind and the act itself was indifferent to human life.

NOTE: Prosecutors do not have to prove that Zimmerman intended to kill Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman could assert self-defense at trial, but the burden is on the prosecution to prove that it wasn’t self defense beyond a reasonable doubt.

The jury will have to consider the circumstances surrounding the killing and decide whether it was second-degree murder or a justifiable use of deadly force.
The jury could also look at lesser-included offenses. At some point during or after the trial, the attorneys will meet with the judge in what is called a “charging conference” to argue which legal instruction the judge will give the jurors. We will not know which lesser-included offenses will be given to the jury until then.
* It is too early to tell what lesser charges the evidence may support, but one possibility is manslaughter.

To convict someone of manslaughter, prosecutors have to prove two things beyond a reasonable doubt:
– that Trayvon Martin is dead AND
– that Zimmerman’s acts caused Trayvon Martin’s death

NOTE: Manslaughter does not require that it be an intentional killing, only that the act that caused death was intentional and not justified or excusable.

Zimmerman could assert self-defense at trial, but the burden is on the prosecution to prove that it wasn’t self defense beyond a reasonable doubt.
The jury will have to consider the circumstances surrounding the killing and decide whether it was manslaughter or a justifiable use of deadly force.
NOTE: In the charging document, Corey alleges that Zimmerman killed Martin with a gun. That is important, because if the jury does convict Zimmerman of the lesser charge of manslaughter, using a gun increases the penalty that Zimmerman would face on a manslaughter conviction.

If convicted of second-degree murder, Zimmerman faces a sentence of 25 years to life in prison without parole.

—————————————————————————————————–

Now if and when Zimmerman is acquitted, Eric Holder and the full force of the United States Attorney General’s office will come down upon Zimmerman with racial profiling charges.  This, like many other lawsuits  from the government with unlimited funds, is meant as a ceremonial crushing and punishment of Zimmerman for being found not guilty. Zimmerman will be required to put forth a defense against Federal charges that is meant to drain any and all funds, as it will be dragged out as long as possible. 

Zimmerman has been found guilty in the media and by some high ranking members of government so he will be punished by one mean or the other, even if is found not guilty in criminal, civil and federal courts.

Y! Big Story: After Zimmerman arrest, questions about ‘stand your ground’ By Vera H-C Chan Trending Now

http://news.blogs.cnn.com What’s happens now that Zimmerman is charged in Trayvon Martin death?

The 2011 Florida Statutes CHAPTER 776 JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE

What if George Zimmerman was Black, and Trayvon Martin was White(Hispanic)? No Need to Ask Anymore, There is a Case Exactly like That !

What if George Zimmerman was Black, and Trayvon Martin was White(Hispanic)? No Need to Ask Anymore, There is a Case Exactly like That !

The hypocrisy of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder an Barack Hussein Obama are on full display.  What was that we kept hearing?  If Zimmerman was black and Trayvon was white (Hispanic),  then it would have all went down differently.  Because cops are such racists they would have thrown the “black Zimmerman” in jail, no questioned asked.  The white (hispanic) Trayvon wouldn’t have simply been ignored because it wasn’t just another black killed?

Well now I’m going to call you on this: BULL  !!!!

So how many of you are familiar with the story out of Phoenix, AZ of a 22-year-old black male, who as of yet hasn’t been arrested for shooting 29-year-old Daniel Adkins (white-Hispanic) in “self defense”?

No?  You haven’t heard anything of this?  How can that be?  The similarities between this Phoenix shooting and the Zimmerman/Trayvon shooting are eerily close, except we are literally switching the races involved in each role.

So let’s get to the story and you judge for yourself.

PHOENIX (CBS5) -Tuesday night police said Daniel Adkins was walking across the Taco Bell drive-thru lane with his dog, when a driver came around the corner and almost hit him leading the two men to start arguing.
“He felt like he was going to get run over and he must have told him something and then words got exchanged and then my brother went up to him and I believe he swung,” said Reyes.

The driver told police he shot Adkins in self-defense, but Adkins’ family said that is impossible.

“He is not threatening in any way. There is no way that anyone could be threatened by Daniel, he is just not that way he has the mentality of a 12 or 13-year-old,” said James Adkins, Daniel’s uncle.

Mentality of a 12 or 13-year-old?? So we see pictures of Trayvon Martin as a 12 or 13 year old to falsify the situation that he was a poor defenseless child, and Adkins was mentally impaired with the mentality of a 12 or 13 year old.  How interesting.

Police are still investigating if this was self-defense. So far, all they can say is that they did not find a weapon on Adkins.

No weapon found that was suppposed to have been used by Adkins.  So Adkin must have been beating on the driver placing the driver in fear of his life?

It is very upsetting to know that this person is not in jail yet. How would they even let him go while confirming up to now that he never had a weapon? All he had was his dog and holding a dog leash,” said Reyes.

The driver has not been arrested nor charged at all in this case. Police said they are still investigating and as of right now no recommendations for charges have been given over to the county attorneys office.

Wow…

myfoxphoenix.com- LAVEEN – Police are saying more about a shooting at a Taco Bell Tuesday night in which one man died.

They’re also identifying the victim as 29-year-old Daniel Adkins.

About 7:30 p.m., a 22-year-old man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drive-thru and were told to pull up while their order was prepared.

At the same time, Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle and angry words were exchanged between he and the driver.

They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. He died at the scene.

The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested.

At first, the couple claimed that Adkins had a metal pipe that he swung at them — but it turns out he was holding a dog leash with his yellow lab on the other end.

Wow, interesting that the shooter’s and his companion’s story changes, and the physical evidence at the scene doesn’t corroborate their original story.   Zimmerman’s story has changed how many times?  That’s right…ZERO.  What evidence at the Zimmerman/Trayvon scene has poked holes in Zimmerman’s story?   ZERO!  hmmmm

Family members want that driver arrested, but he’s claiming self-defense.

“He needs to be behind bars. I’ll never see my brother again,” says sister Marina Reyes. “If he felt that my brother was threatening him, he could have easily just rolled up the window and called the cops.”

A metal pipe or bat was never located. An independent witness did say Adkins swung his fists in the driver’s direction.

“He swung his fist towards the driver window, and at some point the driver shot him,” says Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson. “Just because we don’t book a person immediately does not mean we don’t charge a person at a later date.”

A metal pipe or bat was never located – He (Adkins) swung his fist towards the driver window – swung his fists in the driver’s direction??  “In the the driver’s direction”??!   Adkin didn’t punch the driver in the face to incapacitate and then proceed to slam the drivers head into a hard surface?  The only witness says Adkins swung his fist towards the driver window, may have actually made contact with the window?

The witness didn’t see Adkins on top of the driver on the ground slamming the driver’s head into the concrete? hmmm

“This person is still on the loose and I don’t agree with that. So he’s saying self defense, then where’s the weapon? Where’s the pipe? They didn’t find anything on my brother,” says Reyes. “He was just too aggressive, you don’t need to go that far.”

The shooter’s name has not been released. The investigation is still ongoing.

WTF??!!  The shooter’s name has not been released because the investigation is still ongoing??!!    Who shot Trayvon Martin???   Do you know the name of his shooter while there was still an on going investigation?

————————————————————————————————————

Ok, so what have we learned here?  

  • A black person claiming to have shot an attacker in self defense wasn’t arrested on the spot simply because he was black. Unlike what we have been told would have happened by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Barrack Hussein Obama and every other race-baiter vomiting out their agendas.

  • In the Zimmerman/Trayvon case, Trayvon was a 12 year old looking, black child and Zimmerman was a big bad angry white guy…err… Hispanic guy….err… (white) Hispanic guy.

  • In this case Adkin is a Hispanic 28 year old (with the mental capacity of a 12 year old) [but not a white Hispanic] and the driver, who’s name hasn’t been released due to an ongoing investigation, was a 22 year old black male.

  • Zimmerman’s name was released during an ongoing investigation, as well as a 13 year old witness, to be allowed to be terrorized by groups like the New Black Panthers, while the 22 year old black driver’s name has not.

  • Zimmerman’s story, and the evidence supporting his story, as well as witnesses has never change nor been in conflict with how Zimmerman described the scene. On the other hand, the driver and his companion began with a story that Adkin had a weapon, (possibly bat or pipe) but between the lack of evidence and an eye witness saying that Adkin swung his fist at the car window and “may have made contact with the window”,  their stories have fallen apart.

  • Swinging your fist at a car window and possibly making contact with said window equates with being punched in the face and then pummeled to the ground having your head slammed repeatedly into concrete, when it comes to self defense.

Where is Al Sharpton?

Where is Jesse Jackson?

Where is Eric Holder threatening to be looking into hate crime charges?

Where is Barrack Hussein Obama telling us that Adkins looks like his son?

Where are the Rallies?  Where are the marches demanding this black driver’s arrest?  

Where are the cries for justice?

Where are the bounties for this black driver’s head “Wanted Dead or Alive”?  

Where are the threats of escalation in civil disobedience and economic sanctions that would be imminent unless the black shooter was apprehended immediately?

Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Barrack Hussein Obama, New Black Panthers and all of the other interested parties that pushed race in the Zimmerman case……….

…You are hypocrites, you are liars, you are criminals due to your incitements !

About Those Audio Forensic Experts… Injecting into the Treyvon Martin Case

About Those Audio Forensic Experts…

by DAN LINEHAN on APRIL 3, 2012

in EDITORIAL

Logo

Two experts in the field of forensic voice identification, Tom Owen and Ed Primeau, were hired by the Orlando Sentinel to review George Zimmerman’s call to police along with the 911 calls right before the shooting.

They both decided the voice screaming for help on the 911 calls was not George Zimmerman, and each expert arrived at that conclusion by independent methods.

Tom Owen is mentioned first in the article. He’s described as a forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services, LLC.

Let’s take a closer look at the process he used.

After the Sentinel contacted Owen, he used software called Easy Voice Biometrics to compare Zimmerman’s voice to the 911 call screams.

“I took all of the screams and put those together, and cut out everything else,” Owen says.

The software compared that audio to Zimmerman’s voice. It returned a 48 percent match. Owen said to reach a positive match with audio of this quality, he’d expect higher than 90 percent.

“As a result of that, you can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it’s not Zimmerman,” Owen says, stressing that he cannot confirm the voice as Trayvon’s, because he didn’t have a sample of the teen’s voice to compare.

That raises some concerns. Tom Owen apparently compared Zimmerman’s normal speaking voice on a dispatch call, with high-pitched, terrified screaming that was recorded in the background of later 911 calls.

In our world, “that’s the home run,” Owen says.

I was pretty stunned that he could be so sure. After all, the computer program is looking for similarities in the vocal patterns. How many can it possibly find when pattern A is completely normal, laid back speech and pattern B is hysterical screaming?

I wanted to investigate this a bit further and looked into downloading the software Tom Owen used.

But this proved to be extremely difficult, a license for the software costs nearly $5,000.

Easy Voice Biometrics price

That’s a pretty hefty price to pay to test this software out…

After a few more minutes of research, I found out that the Easy Voice Biometrics web domain is actually owned by Tom Owen himself.

Easy Voice Domain

So what Tom Owen is actually doing here, is using his own home-grown software to attempt to determine the similarities in speech markers between two radically different types of voice patterns and claiming that it is accurate “beyond scientific certainty.”

Beyond scientific certainty is a pretty strong statement.

There doesn’t seem to be any disclosure in the Orlando Sentinel article that Tom Owen owns EasyVoiceBiometrics.com, nor any that he was using his own software package to do the analysis.

I’m not sure whether the Orlando Sentinel author realizes it, but that could easily be construed as a conflict of interest, particularly when the software is currently being sold for $5,000 per license. There’s an extremely transparent profit motive for Tom Owen to promote his product in any way that he can, especially at that price.

Since Tom Owen has staked his reputation on this, and has said point-blank that this software is so accurate that he knows “with reasonable scientific certainty” that it’s not Zimmerman on the 911 calls, the software must at least be extremely thoroughly tested, right?

I emailed Mr. Owen to double-check.

Doesn’t sound reassuring, does it?

It also says, on Easy Voice Biometric’s own web site, that the software is less than a month old.

This is especially strange, because the Orlando Sentinel article says:

As recently as January, Owen used the same technology to identify accused murderer Sheila Davalloo in a 911 call made almost a decade ago.

How could Owen have been using the same technology in that case when the web site says the software was only released three weeks ago?

It lists a launch date of March 7th, 2012 on the news section of the site:

Easy Voice March 7th

Since Owen referred me to TracerTek.com, I checked out that site as well.

TracerTek.com and EasyVoiceBiometrics.com appear to be using the same web site template, just with different information filled in.

It appears Jeff Klinedinst is involved with both. He is listed as the VP of Marketing on TracerTek and he did the YouTube demo videos for Easy Voice Biometrics.

Here’s a demo video Jeff put together for Easy Voice Biometrics.

The software appears to work fine if someone alters their voice slightly, or if there is light music playing in the background.

But there certainly isn’t anything in the demos about Easy Voice Biometrics offering “reasonable scientific certainty” when someone is screaming in panic on the background of a 911 call.

So where exactly is this “scientific certainty” coming from?

The second expert, Ed Primeau, doesn’t “believe” in Biometric Analysis, but doesn’t say why.

Not all experts rely on biometrics. Ed Primeau, a Michigan-based audio engineer and forensics expert, is not a believer in the technology’s use in courtroom settings.

Ed simply listened to the recordings. Then he decided the noises were Trayvon Martin because of the “tone of the voice” while reading Mother Jones.

“I believe that’s Trayvon Martin in the background, without a doubt,” Primeau says, stressing that the tone of the voice is a giveaway. “That’s a young man screaming.”

Nevermind that there was an eyewitness to the fight who clearly states it was George Zimmerman yelling out for help. Or that Zimmerman is cited in the original police report as saying he was yelling for help. Or that the yells much more accurately portray someone who is screaming during an assault, rather than someone begging for their life at gunpoint.

Both Primeau and Owen report that they are credentialed by the American College Forensic Examiners Institute.

Sadly, it turns out there is an entire suite of these “American Forensic Board” sites, on almost any topic you can think of, which all seem to be ran by the same person, a gentleman named Dr. O’Block who claims to have nearly a dozen degrees himself.

Forensic Blogging?  No?

Once again, most of these sites use the same basic template and only change cursory details, making it difficult to gauge how legitimate the boards are, if at all.

Tom Owen also lists things like this:

Instructor “New York Institute for Forensic Audio” 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998,
1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005,2006, 2007

As prestigious as the “New York Institute for Forensic Audio” sounds, there is no such brick and mortar institute. It is actually a “division” of Owen Investigations, LLC. Tom Owen is basically claiming he was an instructor at his own unaccredited university.

I’m sure we’ll hear more about this in the upcoming weeks, since both of these “experts” have sparked a lot of controversy with their statements and placed their reputations on the line.

ABC! Is a hoodie racist in one story but not in another?

ABC! Is a hoodie racist in one story but not in another?

From The Jawa Report because it can’t be put any better:

Blatant Racism At ABC; Liberals And Civil Rights Leaders Ignore!

Today, ABC News ran a story about three people being shot and killed during a convenience store robbery (emphasis Jawa):

The Pitt County Sheriff’s Office released four surveillance photos Monday morning in hopes they’ll lead detectives to the suspects in a triple murder and robbery at a convenience store in Farmville. [...]

The photos show one man wearing a hoodie with what appears to be a bandana covering his face. Another man has on a blue and white striped shirt and a baseball cap. Deputies said they were looking for three suspects.

This comes just days after the liberal media had all but declared suspecting any person wearing a hoodie amounts to racism. The fact ABC News specifically mentions the hoodie exposes their own racist attitude.

However, they should be commended for so artfully avoiding any mention of race in identifying the shooters. Citizens should just be on the lookout for someone wearing a dark hoodie. But get it wrong, and that citizen will be charged with a hate crime.

I’m sure the three murdered were reluctant to judge this young man based on his wardrobe when he initially entered the store. They may now be dead, but at least they weren’t racists.

I’m glad we are breaking the new established rules that describing someone in a hoodie makes you a racist….. Though it might actually be helpful to have a description of the perpetrators unless we are to actually be looking out for two guys……oops (the article doesn’t even describe them as males lest we are to be called sexists too) …I mean, we are to be on the look out for two persons one in a hoodie and the other in a baseball cap.  That should narrow it down.

So just out of curiosity, what description of the perpetrators from the video stills would you give?
