The Trayvon Martin case has been a spectacular disaster for the mainstream media. They’ve doctored evidence, all but manufactured other evidence (the “audio experts” that don’t even meet their own rudimentary standards), and have generated calls for lynchings and given grist to the idea of riots. Because of the media–not because of George Zimmerman–we are now facing one of the most racially toxic environments I can ever remember.
The paste-eating press (PEP) is slow to learn, however, and somehow thinks that trying to replicate the disaster is somehow going to be a good thing, and has tried to gin up another “innocent teen gets shot” story with the shooting of pretty white girl named Summer Moody.
The Mobile Press-Register reported that 17-year-old Summer Moody, a star high school volleyball player in Baldwin County, Ala., was shot in the head April 15 after authorities said she and three other teens were caught breaking into a fish camp early in the morning.
Three men who found the teens trespassing on the Gravine Island property admitted to firing the shots that hit Moody.
Authorities said they believe the teens — who, with the exception of Moody, have been charged with first-degree burglary — were committing a theft at the time of the shooting.
Moody is still alive, but an attorney for her family has said she has a very little chance of survival.
So moody is out at 4:00 AM with three boys–great parenting, Moody family–and is a party to breaking and entering of a recreational fishing cabin. The caretaker and another man hear the crime in progress, and claim they fire “warning shots” (which you should never ever do), one of which hits Moody in the head.
This isn’t the Trayvon Martin case, just because Moody is a 17-year-old who caught a bullet, and I’m not going to be forced into viewing this as something other than a local tragedy just because a pretty blond white girl is the one injured.
This does not appear to be close to a valid self defense claim. This was an intentional shot fired, and whether or not the shooter meant to hit anyone is irrelevant. If Moody dies, she becomes another cautionary tale of why criminal behavior can shorten your life expectancy. As for the shooter, he clearly violated at least two of the rules of gun safety, and he’s probably looking at well-deserved manslaughter charge.
But this isn’t “Trayvon: Part Deux.”
Sorry, media parasites.
