Trayvon Martin link dump (CORRECTED)

Plenty of kooks and scumbags in this story. There's the shooter himself, who comes across as erratic (maybe mentally ill?); there are the people on his side, who've spun out some crazy notions of why their boy is the innocent victim here, not the dead kid; then there are the dung-slinging wingnuts from Newt Gingrich on down to the lowest cave-dwelling racist assholes who bring on the batshit in ways that make Michele "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann seem rational.

Of course, It's All Obama's Fault!

[NOTE: Somehow most of the links got mangled while I was putting the dump together. This has been fixed]

Here we go:

--
17-year-old Martin was on suspension from school in Miami (bag w/pot residue); he was staying in a gated community (apartments?) with his father's GF; walking home from C-store w/Skittles and a drink, was stalked by shooter, then chased; some sort of scuffle/confrontation, then he was shot; shooter claims "self-defense" [wingnuts say shooter had right to "stand his ground" but the kid, threatened by someone armed and bigger, didn't have the same right, even though he was close to home]
--
killer's father a retired judge; makes us wonder whether the cops refused to charge Zimmerman because the judge wanted the matter to go away.
--
map of gated community where Martin lived and died
--
cops tried to coach a witness into changing her story
--
kid was shot in late Feb 2012; body kept in cooler for 3 days before parents notified [link somewhere down below]
--
wingnuts (including Bankrupt Check-Bouncing Failure Newt Gingrich) blame the kid for his own murder
--
shooter was self-appointed Neighborhood Watch (and ARMED, when NW folks are specifically told they're not cops); called 911 frequently in 2011 for meaningless things like trash in street--
and a suspicious 7-9 year old
--
the shooter was told to back off by the 911 dispatcher
--
the Zimmerman media circus
--
shitstorm picks up as people start claiming shooter said "fucking coons"
--
Obama speaks out; Gingrich the Bankrupt Failure and other wingnuts screech at him
for pandering; Frothy goes to a shooting range campaign event; stupid woman tells him "Pretend it's Obama!"
--
faux noise commenters do their usual racist shit-throwing
--
Geraldo "The Moustache" Rivera says if the kid wasn't wearing a hoodie, he wouldn't have been shot
--
'witness' claims he saw Martin beating on the shooter, says shooting was self defense [3/23/12]
--

--

--
wingnut dickhead says Obama "lynching" shooter
--
investigator wanted to charge shooter with manslaughter, was instructed not to
--
faux noise commenters go racist (again) (they had a field day with Whitney Houston's death)
--
not to be outdone, Breitard commenters go even more batshit racist against Trayvon
--
shooter's lawyer abandons chair, runs out on "The Last Word"; chair footage for an entire segment (Lawrence grills it at one point; chair refuses comment)
--
shooter's "buddy" Oliver grilled on "The Last Word"; his claims all fall apart (he's a coworker, didn't know him all that well, hadn't seen him in awhile)
--
shooter claims he was attacked; broken nose, blood on his face and back of his head from being beaten up by the kid--but police video calls bullshit on that
--
funeral director says no injuries on Trayvon's hands (he didn't put up a fight)
--
shooter's father claims Martin told shooter, "you're gonna die now" or "you're gonna die tonight"
--
keeps blowing up: Trayvon Martin was identified but kept as John Doe until his father filed a Missing Persons report; shooter didn't have blood or broken nose; cops didn't drop the ball so much as put it down and walk away from it
--
Spike Lee fucks up, reposts incorrect address for shooter posted by some Twitter dumbass (the address was was actually that of a 70-year-old woman and her 72 year-old husband; they had to bug out because of all the hate mail, phone calls, and visits in the middle of the night).

this isn't the first time "stand your ground" has farked things up--in OK, a man was killed in 2010 by a robber, who was allowed to walk because he was "attacked" first. The "attacker's" son and an older friend went on a shooting spree, killing 5 black people who had nothing to do with his father's death (4/2012)
