Fox News Host: Trayvon ‘May Have Been Violent’ Because He Smoked Pot
Why not cut the crap, Fox, and just come out and say “The n****r had it coming”?
Fox News host Gregg Jarrett suggested on Monday that George Zimmerman might have been justified in killing Trayvon Martin because the teen “may have been violent” from smoking marijuana.
During a break in jury selection for Zimmerman’s trial, Jarrett told viewers of Fox News’ live Internet broadcast that the judge had tried to restrict the evidence to facts related to the day of the shooting.
“She’s said we’re not going to have any of this stuff introduced as evidence about the history of Trayvon Martin, whether he had a history of getting involved in fights, making threats, marijuana use, gun use, being suspended from school and so on and so forth,” he observed.
Former federal prosecutor Doug Burns pointed out that the judge may allow evidence that Martin had marijuana in his system at the time of his death.
“If an M.E. — a medical examiner — takes the witness stand and says he was high on marijuana based on toxicology, how does that play?” Jarrett wondered.
“That’s a very good question,” Burns agreed.
“If he is high, he may have acted irrationally and may have been violent,” Jarrett opined.
