The usual liberal race hucksters have been saying for at least a year that, if Trayvon Martin had been white, and Zimmerman had been black, then Zimmerman would have been convicted instantly. Heck, the liberals have implied that Zimmerman would have been lynched had he been black!
Well, as usual, the liberals just can never get their facts straight.
So, Meet Roderick Scott.
Mr. Scott is a black man from the small town of Greece N.Y. which is outside of Rochester.
In the early morning hours of April 4th 2009, Mr. Scott thought he saw 3 teenagers breaking into his neighbors’ cars.
Mr. Scott grabbed a handgun, for which he had a legal permit, and then went to the end of his driveway and ordered the teenagers to remain where they were and to wait for the police.
At this point 17 year old Christopher Cervini allegedly advanced towards Scott and displayed anger. There is some dispute as to what was said. Scott says Cervini threatened him. Cervini’s friends say that he said “Please don’t shoot me I’m just a kid”. At no time did Cervini and Scott come close enough to engage in physical contact. Unlike Trayvon Martin, Cervini did not sucker Punch Scott. He did not break Scott’s nose. Cervini did not get on top of Scott and pound his head into cement.
Scott shot at Cervini with 2 bullets finding their mark. 17 year old Chris Cervini died and Roderick Scott was charged with manslaughter.
7 months later a jury found Roderick Scott not guilty.
It’s funny. The race hucksters have nothing to say about this case. When a white teenager is killed Eric Holder doesn’t threaten Civil Rights Violations and Investigations.
