Allen West Calls Trayvon Martin Shooting an ‘Outrage’ and Endorses Federal Investigation

Ever since his CPAC Keynote Address in 2010, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has been one of the gold standards of modern American political conservatism. He has also been widely hailed as a political model for conservative African American politicians. And now, following recent revelations surrounding the highly suspicious shooting of Trayvon Martin, Rep. West has joined a growing bipartisan consensus calling for the case to be reopened, possibly even with Federal assistance. West’s statement, put out today by Talking Points Memo, resonates with controlled fury (emphasis added):

itself in Sanford, Florida involving the shooting of 17-year-old Treyvon Martin. First of all, if all that has been reported is accurate, the Sanford Police Chief should be relieved of his duties due to what appears to be a mishandling of this shooting in its early stages. The US Navy SEALS identified Osama Bin Laden within hours, while this young man laid on a morgue slab for three days. The shooter, Mr Zimmerman, should have been held in custody and certainly should not be walking free, still having a concealed weapons carry permit. From my reading, it seems this young man was pursued and there was no probable cause to engage him, certainly not pursue and shoot him…against the direction of the 911 responder. Let’s all be appalled at this instance not because of race, but because a young American man has lost his life, seemingly, for no reason. I have signed a letter supporting a DOJ investigation. I am not heading to Sanford to shout and scream, because we need the responsible entities and agencies to handle this situation from this point without media bias or undue political influences. This is an outrage.

That was my reaction as well.

So is West also ignoring the eye witness report that this 6’2″ “kid” was beating the cr@p out of the Hispanic man who shot him? Apparently so.

BTW, as a conservative, the media tells me I hate blacks and Hispanics, so my imputed racism makes me neutral…

So much for West!

Just another Racist/Race-baitor pretender in the mold of Colin Powell.

Martin out weighed Zimmerman, and towered over him, and inflicted serious injury.

Yes, folks – this is how far down the rabbit-hole they’ve gone.

To: Free ThinkerNY

So this guy should be slammed in jail, in irons if necessary, w/o trial. And the Police Chief fired for refusing to jump to conclusions.

Allen West: Some conservative. We’re supposed to be the side of “Nation of Laws.” But not when the shootee isone of West’s People, I guess. Oh well, this is the year for people to wash out of the conservative movement, and today it’s West’s turn. Bye.

From what I’ve heard, Zimmerman was attacked as he was going back to his truck by this “kid”.

And from what I’ve read, the “kid” had done nothing to warrant being followed, first in an SUV and then on foot, by Zimmerman, who ignored police dispatcher instructions that he should not pursue Martin.

What would your reaction be if you were simply walking home from the store and some stranger started stalking you and then chasing you on foot?

Throw my bag of Skittles at him?
The fact that Martin had reason to be concerned should be self-evident – he was killed. There’s certainly room for questions in this case.

Even a so-called black “conservative” can’t see passed the skin color.

This home schooling thing is definitely beginning to bear bitter fruit.

To: 101stAirborneVet

So far, nobody has presented any evidence the kid is a criminal. Since it’s been about a week, I think it’s safe to say that he wad simply a kid who had been walking home to his father’s house after buying his goods at the local convenience store and nothing more.

Mexicans shooting blacks is a normal day here in LA.
