    Brothers Murdered Over ‘Free Zimmerman’ Sticker? Brothers Murdered Over ‘Free Zimmerman’ Sticker? Document Transcript

    • Brothers Murdered Over ‘Free Zimmerman’ Sticker? Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com July 16, 2013 Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office accused of covering up hate crime The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is facing accusations that it covered up a hate crime by denying that the murder of two brothers in a parking lot on Sunday night was related to the Trayvon Martin case, despite the fact that a sticker was placed on the brother’s truck which read “Free Zimmerman”. At around 8:45 p.m. at the 7000 block of Normandy Blvd, Jacksonville, 24-year-old Andrew Austin Bohannon and 19-year-old Matthew Ryan Bohannon were sitting in their truck in the Golden Corral parking lot when they were approached by another car carrying multiple occupants. After a “some type of conversation” between the two parties, multiple shots were fired at the brothers. One was killed instantly while another was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a local hospital. “Now rumors have spread that the deadly shooting is in retaliation to a bumper sticker placed on the Bohannon’s truck that said “Free Zimmerman,” reports FirstCoastNews. The unknown shooters are still on the loose. Multiple people saw the incident and it was also captured on surveillance cameras, but the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is denying that the incident was a hate crime connected to the acquittal of George Zimmerman. “Normandy Blvd. Shooting Update – We have had numerous inquiries, blog comments, and Facebook postings about the relationship between the Normandy double homicide last night in the Golden Corral parking lot and the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial. We are confident to say where we are in the investigation that this is not the case at all. There is NO link at all between these cases, nor did we ever suspect one,” said the Sheriff’s office in a statement.
    • However, WTLV viewers responded by accusing the JSO of launching a cover-up. “Definitely had to do with the Zimmerman case,” wrote one. “Nice way to try to cover up a hate crime JSO. Unfortunately the public knows better,” said Kimberely Martin Faqua. “Why can’t the news and JSO admit the truth about what the boys were murdered for the sticker on their vehicle “Free Zimmerman”…why the big coverup. This deserves media coverage just like Trayvon received,” states Cyndi Starling. The family of the brothers have also denied any knowledge of a connection to the Zimmerman verdict. If the shooting was directly related to the Zimmerman verdict, the JSO could have decided to downplay the connection in an attempt to prevent retaliatory attacks amidst national tension in the aftermath of the trial. In the weeks before and the days after the Zimmerman verdict, innumerable threats were made on Twitter by Trayvon Martin supporters to kill white people in revenge attacks, despite the fact that Zimmerman is Hispanic. In addition to rioting and unrest that at the moment remains limited to Oakland and Los Angeles, there have been other sporadic acts of violence in connection with the Zimmerman verdict. - In Oakland cameramen and reporters were physically attacked by anti-Zimmerman demonstrators. - In Hayward, California black musician Lester Chambers was attacked by Dinalynn Andrews Potter, a 43-year-old white woman, after he dedicated a song to Trayvon Martin. - In Senatobia, Mississippi a jogger was abducted and beaten by three black men who asked him, “Do you know who Trayvon Martin was?” - In another incident, a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man in Baltimore while yelling, “This is for Trayvon.” Brothers Murdered Over ‘Free Zimmerman’ Sticker? VIDEO BELOW http://www.infowars.com/brothers-murdered-over-free-zimmerman-sticker/ Jogger Kidnapped and Attacked over Zimmerman verdict Adan Salazar Infowars.com July 16, 2013 “I’m lucky I wasn’t killed, you know?” A jogger claims he was knocked unconscious and sent to the hospital after being assaulted by three men who stated they were going to beat him “for Trayvon.” Devin Dickey, a resident of Senatobia, Miss., a city 30 miles south of Memphis, Tenn., says he was stretching Sunday night when a car pulled up and asked him a question he couldn’t understand. “I got closer to the car. He told me to get in the car, and I said, ‘No.’You know what guys, I’m not gonna do that. I don’t want to,” said Dickey. “He looked at the driver and said, ‘Give me the damn gun.’”
    • Dickey had no choice but to enter the vehicle. The men drove him around then stopped, at which point Dickey was taken out of the car and asked if he knew Trayvon. “He said, ‘Do you know who Trayvon is?’ I said, ‘No,’ thinking of somebody local. He said, ‘Trayvon Martin.’ I said ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘I’m going to beat your … For Trayvon.’ ” According to Dickey, the men pummeled him with a barrage of kicks and beatings to the head, causing him to pass out. Police found him on the side of the road after he had called his wife. “I’m lucky I wasn’t killed you know,” said Dickey. Photos provided to WMC-TV show Dickey’s face swollen and bruised. Police say they are investigating the incident. The jogger’s assault is part of a string of retaliatory violence stemming from anger over George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the murder trial of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Today, we wrote on accusations leveled against the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office claiming it helped cover up the hate crime murder of two brothers who were possibly attacked due to a bumper sticker on their truck that read “Free Zimmerman.” Yesterday, we also reported on the beating of a conservative journalist and filmmaker who says he was approached repeatedly by protestors demanding he stop filming. The journalist says he was surrounded by an angry mob and attacked by an interminable number of people before he was miraculously able to fend them off. The incidents are also reminiscent of beatings that took place in 2012 in the name of “justice for Trayvon.” In April 2012, Matthew Owens was seriously injured in Mobile, Alabama, after “about 20 African American adults beat Owens — who is white — into a bloody pulp with brass knuckles, pipes and even paint cans,” according to the Huffington Post. “Now that’s justice for Trayvon,” said one of the assailants. Also in 2012, the Toledo Blade reported that a 78 year old man was attacked by a gang of thugs. “While Mr. Watts was down the boys kicked him, over and over, shouting, ‘[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man],’ according to a police report,” the newspaper reported.
    • Despite the tide of violence, media coverage is primarily fixated on how the federal government plans to pursue additional charges against Zimmerman, including a civil rights violation.

A short while later, Los Angeles Police Department officers wearing helmets and carrying batons swarmed the store as others marched through the parking lot.” Footage shows demonstrators attacking moving vehicles, as well as stationary police cars, in a flashback to scenes witnessed during the 1992 LA riots. Protesters also lit fireworks in the middle of the road and threw rocks at store fronts while lashing out randomly at people in the street. Some of the protesters were seen wearing t-shirts featuring an image of George Zimmerman which read “Wanted Dead or Alive” with the last word crossed out. Although such scenes have largely been limited to Oakland and different areas of Los Angeles, media networks have ignored them for the most part. Yesterday we highlighted how the LAPD were being ordered to stand down and allow the disorder to escalate despite the fact that innocent bystanders were being assaulted. Police are now promising to make more arrests if the unrest continues. Employees of businesses in Oakland lined up outside stores to prevent ‘protesters’ from smashing their windows. There were also reports that a waiter was attacked with a hammer.

    • Meanwhile, George Zimmerman’s parents have remained in hiding and have not seen their son because of “an enormous amount of death threats.” Images from Twitter and YouTube below show some of the scenes from last night.

Appearing on Fox News, Robert Zimmerman said “We do have concerns and always have of having our phones tapped, having our phones listened to by the administration or whomever.” George Zimmerman's Brother Robert: We Are Afraid Our Phones Are Tapped By This Administration VIDEO BELOW http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=PQDZCCkd9TQ “A lot of the things that we do are connecting in person—that’s how we’ve managed to stay hidden for so long. It’s kind of old school, but it works…We’re back to what we were doing in March of 2012, because it’s right in everybody’s mind right now.” he added, referring to staying safe in the wake of
    • several threats and acts of violence related to last week’s “Not Guilty” decision. Zimmerman’s brother also stated that the family is worried that the Department of Justice is being pressured by special interest groups to open a federal investigation into the case. “I think Eric Holder is being pressured by some groups who were calling for, initially, just an arrest. These same groups keep moving around the goal posts: the NAACP, Al Sharpton, the Rainbow Push Coalition with Jesse Jackson.” Zimmerman noted. “First they wanted just a simple arrest and that’s it, have his fair day in court and whatever the verdict is, we’ll respect it. Then when the verdict was coming they wanted him to be found guilty. But the verdict isn’t what they wanted, so now they’re moving the goal post again, and calling on the Department of Justice to investigate him more.” the brother added. “I understand the Justice Department’s responding to pressure,” Zimmerman continued. “But I think that the American people need a little bit of time to digest those two words ‘Not Guilty.’ It doesn’t mean nothing happened. I think most of the people who were upset with that outcome didn’t actually pay attention to the trial.” Speaking about how his brother is coping with the media frenzy and reaction to the case, Zimmerman described the impact it has had. “He’s been confined not just by an ankle bracelet, but psychologically and emotionally confined to being in that courtroom every day. Seeing people try to put him in prison for the rest of his life. When that’s all gone and you’re in essence a free man, and they cut that ankle bracelet off of your ankle and the judge tells you you have no further business before the court, in that instant your reality changes. It’s very jarring.” “Freedom is a very new notion to him,” he stated.
