The “whoop ass revelation” from Rachel Jeantel on Piers Anthony is very disturbing for several reasons:
1. She seems to think that a “whoop ass” is something that is not life threatening and is normal, acceptable behavior.
2. Trayvon Martin was just giving George Zimmerman a “whoop ass” and George should have known that his life was not being threatened.
3. George Zimmerman should have just taken his “whoop ass” by his attacker without defending himself.
4. This information was suppressed by the media and is still being suppressed. Eric Holder and Obama will not address the obvious racism involved in this case. This is another case of our two-tiered justice system.
In the final analysis, Americans do not understand the difference between “bash” or “kill”.
Here’s Rachel Jeantel’s quote from Monday night on CNN:
“They don’t understand, they understand, ‘Oh, he would just bash, or was kill.’ When somebody bash somebody, like, blood people, trust me, in the area I live, that’s not bashing. That’s just called ‘whoop ass.’ You just got your ass whooped. That’s what it is.”
Although the following story is a year old, Office Jonathan Molina did not have a chance to decide which type of beating he was receiving from a 17 year old: he died. I do not think that anyone who is receiving a beating will take the time to decide if it is a “bash” or “kill”, they will only act to preserve their life. Which is what George Zimmerman did.
An El Paso police officer allegedly knocked unconscious and then beaten violently by a 17-year-old died Friday morning at University Medical Center, police said.
Officer Jonathan Molina, 29, who did tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marine Corps, died a little more than nine days after suffering a fractured skull, internal head injuries and facial fractures.
The suspect, Juan Antonio Gonzalez, who had been arrested on suspicion of assaulting an officer, was charged with capital murder on Friday.
Gonzalez, who was being held at the El Paso County Jail, saw his bond raised from $200,000 to $5 million.
“It is with a sad heart today that the El Paso Police Department is notifying you of the death of Officer Jonathan Molina,” said Police Chief Greg Allen, who paused to control his emotions during a news conference at police headquarters. “Officer Molina will be sorely missed.”
