For those of you who were vacationing in Antarctica at the time, a bit of background might be apropos.
Back in February of 2012, George sighted Trayvon walking down the street after dark. Since this was in a gated community and Trayvon was black, George had a feeling that something nefarious was afoot. He called the police with his concerns and was told to back off. However, Trayvon was wearing a “hoodie” and George knew that hoodies were the favored attire of black hoodlums, so he followed him. An altercation broke out and George, fearing for his life (according to the only survivor) “stood his ground” and pumped a slug into Trayvon’s chest, killing him.
(Well, that bag of Skittles that Trayvon was carrying did look mighty lethal and who knew what was in his can of Arizona Iced Tea?)
After his 15 minutes of infamy expired, George’s life hasn’t exactly been beer, broads and bar-b-cue! He’s been in and out of scrapes ever since. And, he’s repeatedly tried to regain his old notoriety with stunts like tweeting crime scene photos of his victim.
Last week, George put the gun that killed Trayvon up for auction last week and got hilariously trolled by characters like “Racist McShootface” and others who bid the price up to $65,000,000. (Good luck on getting that money.) This week, he’s given an exclusive interview to “The Daily Beast.”
Vanquish any thoughts about George issuing a mea culpa. Au contraire mon frere, (How’s that for mixing Latin and French in the same paragraph?) George took the opportunity to point the blame where it really (to him) belongs: Trayvon’s parents!
They didn’t raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him.
And, not only were Trayvon’s parents poor at their job, they abused him and tried to hog George’s media spotlight:
Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death. She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.
When George was asked how Trayvon’s parents might feel about him making major money selling the gun that killed their son, he replied,
Sure, I’m sorry for any parent that has lost a child. That being said, I also believe it’s their duty to have an internal dialogue to see what they should have done better and what they should have done appropriately.
So, you see folks, this whole incident was someone else’s fault, not George’s. George is really the victim in this whole affair.
