AP Cover Up : Zimmerman Was A Brave Advocate For Civil Rights

Last year the AP wrote this story about Zimmerman :

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman accused the Sanford police department of corruption more than a year before he shot Trayvon Martin, saying at a public forum the agency covered up the beating of a black homeless man by the son of a white officer.

“I would just like to state that the law is written in black and white,” Zimmerman said during a 90-second statement to city commissioners at a community forum. “It should not and cannot be enforced in the gray for those who are in the thin blue line.”

The forum took place on Jan. 8, 2011, days after a video of the beating went viral on the Internet and then-Sanford Police Chief Brian Tooley was forced to retire. Tooley’s department faced criticism for dragging its feet in arresting Justin Collison, the son of a police lieutenant.

“I’d like to know what action the commission is taking in order to repeal Mr. Tooley’s pension,” Zimmerman said to the commission. “I’m not asking you to repeal his pension; I believe he’s already forfeited his pension by his illegal cover-up in corruption in what happened in his department.”

AP has overwritten the story with a new one which does not mention anything about that incident, but you can get to it on the Internet Archive:

News from The Associated Press

Zimmerman is an exceptionally decent person, who is being lynched by racists in the White House which have chosen to ignore the evidence.

    Well, maybe Rahm was wrong – sometimes what appears to be a “crisis” should just be allowed to sort itself out – – – –

    rather than being seized as another opportunity for King Barack to trash the Constitution and Bill of Rights

    Rewriting history is a big thing. “He who controls the present controls the past, and he who controls the past controls the future.”

    To be honest, I’m not -quite- sure how that works, but apparently the AP sure believes it.

    The second amendment is a ‘civil right’. The NRA is fighting a civil rights war with Skeeter, and we shall overcome.
