Michael Savage on George
Zimmerman: ‘You have to find
this man guilty’ [AUDIO]

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/5/2013 12:52:10 PM

On his show on Tuesday night, talk show host Michael Savage said that George Zimmerman, who is currently on trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin, should be found guilty of second-degree manslaughter based on two things: 1) The state of his firearm and 2) The language he allegedly used on a 911 call when he was first reporting his suspicions about Martin. But first Savage explained why his insight should be valued over others in the media covering the trial. “I’m about to break an analysis that no one yet in the media has done,

Comments:
This will make Al Sharpton, et al very happy. I finally quit listening to Savage years ago. He thrives on being extremely provocative. He is also a bit arrogant.

What a blowhard! He doesn´t even know (from his statement) what Zimmerman is charged with. It´s well above manslaughter, Mikey.

And his highly professional analysis of how to carry a handgun into a potentially dangerous situation is pure bunk.

But you did get your name in the papers, Mikey, and isn´t that what you wanted?

He is wrong, of course.
The Kel Tec, like many other semi auto pistols, has an integral safety, which is part of the trigger. There is no external safety on the gun. And it was OK to have a bullet in the chamber.
Even the state´s firearm analyst said that carrying the pistol in the way Zimmerman was carrying, was logical and proper.

The comment Zimmerman made to the dispatcher during the phone call was an expression of frustration, logical, even though all of us might not have used the f... There had been several break ins, in the twin lakes neighborhood, and every person caught and prosecuted (7 of them) was a young black male. (The adjoining neighborhood was full of blacks, and they penetrated twin lakes quite effectively.
So Savage is completely wrong.

savage would simply go off on his boat. Plus, there are not rally any blacks in SF if there were a race riot.

I simply beleive Zimmerman was the aggressor. I refuse to beleive that Martin was some saintly kid. But that does not matter. On that night, he was walking home after buying skittles/tea (he did not steal them). I also beleive Zimmerman was a wannabe cop who disobeyed 911 orders.

He obviously knows nothing about this particular model of pistol and hasn´t listened to the 911 call played in court, what a waste of oxygen. To blather on without the facts seems to be what he does best. There is no thumb safety on this model.

Kel-Tec semi-automatic pistols are double action ONLY, and have no safety except proper operation. Those who understand the chracteristics of various fire-arms will understand this. Mr. Savage is obviously IGNORANT, as he demonstrated whn he says the firearm was being carried with a round in the chamber with the safey off.
NO SAFETY! Can´t be off.
Since the pistol is double action only, it requires a deliberate and rather lengthy pull of the trigger to fire it. I know. I own a Kel-Tec semi-automatic, double action pistol.

Re: #4 - Civilian 911 operators have zero authority to issue "orders." They can render advice but no citizen is compelled to follow it, particularly since someone sitting in a dispatch center lacks situation awareness outside of what the caller is telling them on the phone.

#4 you have NO basis for yoru "belief" that Zimmerman was the aggressor.

How many wounds and or bruises were found on the thug´s face?? ZERO !

Even if Zimmerman had sought out and instigated the confrontation, when he was being pounded into the ground and the thug told him he was going to die that day, he had a pefectly legitimate right to defend his life.

How do we know that the thug told him he was going to die? Well, we eiher believe Zimmerman or we don´t. But even if we don´t, there is enough REASONABLE DOUBT to deter any ETHICAL DA from even charging Zimmerman, let alone bring him to trial.

Immediately after this story became known to the country at large, the 911 recording was everywhere. I heard it several times in its entirety and it is very clear what happened that night. Zimmerman did not "disobey 911 orders". He did exactly what the dispatcher asked him to do, simply answering her questions and returned to his vehicle when asked.

Savage is an idiot and has this whole story wrong. As others have stated, wrong about the gun. Wrong in his implication that white people generally think Zimmerman is innocent. Zimmerman is HISPANIC and no more white than President Zero! The only group of people concerned about race in this case are blacks. To them, race is the ONLY thing that matters here.

I heard the 911 recording and have looked at the facts and listened to Zimmerman´s testimony. Zimmerman is not guilty and should be a free man. People like Savage, Matt Lauer, President Zero, et al, should be ashamed of themselves for not learning the facts and spreading false information. They are responsible for destroying this man´s life.

This nation has been turned upside down.

Exactly #9. I don´t think #4 knows all thw facts. Besides, Zimmerman DID stop following him. If you look at the layout of the complex it is obvious that Martin confronted GZ. If someone punches you in the nose, knocks you to the ground, sits on you, and pounds your head into concrete while saying "you´re gonna die tonite", one should be able to defend oneself.

Enjoying the facts and comments by posters who actually know what they are talking about.

From experience I can tell you that you do NOT follow what a 911 dispatcher tells you.
They don´t know what´s going on... often have poor credentials or qualifications,
if any, and have no real authority.

Their duty is to notify the correct authorities to respond, if needed.
Nothing more.

Maybe they can guide a six year old, but that´s about it.

The writer never heard about the Hunter´s Point/Fillmore riot in 1966? Does he think the blacks all magically moved out of SF since then?

Using Savage´s logic, why not just say Zimmerman is guilty because he was carrying a loaded gun without regard for whether the safety was on or off. Or why not say he´s guilty for carrying a gun, loaded or unloaded. Or maybe he´s guilty just because he was on the watch committee. None of this has anything to do with whether he acted in self defense.

Those of us who have watched the trial live know that the FDLE expert on firearms and ballistics who examined GZ´s weapon and the shell casing and fragments said that his weapon had no safety. It is a double action weapon. She explained all of this and the differences between his weapon and a single action weapon in mind-numbing detail.

She also testified that it would be a weapon of choice for self-defense and safe to carry loaded because it would require a full trigger pull to discharge it.

911 will tell you to NOT go into the burning house to save your baby. At the same time they know that if you don´t go in the baby will surely die. But they are doing what their lawyers have told them to do in order to cover their butts. 911 doesn´t care about you or your families well being. They only care about their pensions and avoiding lawsuits.

Savage is deranged and should have been put away in a little padded cell months ago. Besides, whatever this blowhard (et al) has to say is of no consequence and should be ignored.

This is nothing but a show trial, a waste of time, and at best, obscene.

Further, Savage et al are begging for "riots" as those in the wings have nothing whatsoever to do but flex their so-called "rights" to "put the crackers down".

What we have here is race warfare being promoted by mental miniscules who will observe the action from a mile away through heavy lenses.

Further, this entire so-called "trial", is an assault on right-to-carry, as well as the right to use deadly force when one determines one´s life is in jeopardy.

Acquit Zimmerman.

Commit Savage.

Jail the media.

To me this case is so much more simple than everyone is trying to make it. Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch guy, took it seriously, perhaps a bit too seriously. Of that I don´t know. But the area had been having a spree of break-ins, therefore his being suspicious of someone is not too hard to understand.

Trayvon wa a teenager, in the rebelious phase. Got in trouble at school, Mom sent him to live with Dad (so common with divorced parents of a son when they reach that age) so maybe he´d learn boundaries. Trayvon was seeing himself as a tough kid, he´s smoked some pot, thought he was cool. Went get Skittles and a tea, and he lingered and lingered on his way back to Dad´s girlfriend´s apartment. Heck, when I was a teen I´d tell my folks I was taking the car to the library -- I didn´t!

So because of the situations of both people and the previous break-ins, their worlds collide. Trayvon may not have know of the break-ins. But instead of decidiing to attack the guy following him (unless he thought the guy was also going to break in somewhere, he could´ve said something like, "Hey, Dude - what are you doing?" But he also approached Zimmerman with an attitude of "I´m taking this guy down."

Two blowhard males - both suspicious of the other, and heartbreak ensued. Zimmerman got the wrong kind of training for concealed carry -- the training I got focused on not shooting, shoot only as a last resort -- the law may not provide shelter for your action.

Speaking as the owner of a KelTec semi-auto, I can say from first hand experience that the KelTec is a DAO (Double Action Only) pistol. The hammer cannot be cocked except by a complete pull of the trigger. It will not go off accidentally, as it take an intentional, heavy trigger pull to fire the weapon. There is no safety on the gun except for that - as none is needed. Other semi-auto pistols (the Bersa, Glock, Colt, etc,) have a firing system that cox the hammer when the first round is chambered by operating the slide mechanism, and re-cox [yes, I know how to spell it, but the bad word detector won´t let me spell it ´see oh see kay] it every time a round is fired and the slide operates to eject the spent shell casing. The KelTec, however, does NOT cok the hammer after every shot. It is double action every time - the trigger must both pull the hammer and release it. So there is no need for a separate safety. And why carry a gun if it does not have a round in the chamber?

#25, if someone is pounding your head on cement, having already broken your nose, at what point does ´last resort´ kick in?
Also, re my previous post, yes, I know that you should (IMHO) carry certain types of revolvers with an empty chamber under the hammer, in case the gun is dropped and falls on the hammer. Get a Ruger revolver - you can pound on the hammer with a hammer and it won´t fire the round under the hammer unless the trigger is depressed. Speaking of depressed, I quit listening to Michael Savage several years ago because it seemed he was in a permanent state of deep depression every day. The ´why bother even taking the next breath´ type of depression. Not the way I want to spend my radio-listening time.

I still think Savage is some kind of weirdo. I´ll never forget him on 9/11 trying to get people to phone in descriptions of any kind of security forces they saw - not an innocent question, and he was practically dribbling with excitement. I thought there was something wrong with that, besides which, a guy whose appearance is best described as a hat - what does he look like without it? who knows? Weirdarino.

Of my several guns I own, the four I consider my self-defense weapons are all double action and I carry them with one in the pipe. If I´m ever put in a position of needing to fire one, I want it ready to fire NOW, not after I go through a ritual before I can shoot it.

Savage is siding with his Zero Hero and dreaming that if he had a son, he would be just like Trayvon too. Never mind the evidence your honor and members of the jury, it´s the right thing to do in the name of social justice to convict Zimmerman in this case! After all Trayvon was just an innocent pedestrian on his way home with Skittles and plans to play video games that night when the Racist One Man Police Department on a mission ambushed this poor son of a share cropper slave family and gunned this young teenager whit his whole life ahead of him, down in cold blood. Trayvon was destined to be a doctor, or a lawyer or an Architect or a preacher like his hero Jesse Jackson. But now society has suffered a great loss. Guilty! Hang him now!!!!

I´ve thought, since the beginning, that it´s possible that Zimmerman committed some legal wrong if it could be shown that he legally provoked Martin, likely some sort of civil damages or, at worst, a low-level manslaughter charge. Murder? I see no evidence of premeditation or a disregard for life there.

But I think the biggest problem with this whole thing was that the police didn´t to a thorough investigation or have all the answers when they were asked why they let Zimmerman go, and that´s where the problems started because it created the impression among many in the black community that they police didn´t care very much that Martin was dead, and I think that´s the spark that lit the fire.

Had the police been able to readily explain the eyewitness accounts, Zimmerman´s injuries, and so on as the reason why they believed it self-defense and let Zimmerman go, I don´t think this would have spiraled as out of control. Sure, there might still have been calls for a civil suit against Zimmerman claiming that he provoked Martin by following him and thus harassing him, and they might have even been able to make that case, but this circus isn´t going to produce justice for anyone.

While personally I don´t care for DAO actions as many others have pointed out the concept of carrying a concealed firearm is that it is ready to discharge when and if needed, the idea of having to rack the slide to chamber a round will get you killed.

what everyone seems to forget - Savage, Limbaugh, Beck - every last one of them - their first and foremost job is to sell advertising, to bring an audience that can be measured for advertising rates - EVERYTHING else is secondary

I would rather they convict Savage of criminal trespass into the air waves.

Whole politicization of one trial of a volunteer guardian of a gated community which had been robbed by some criminals, petty burglaries not bank robbers-sneak in the night thieves and one dead black and disturbed anti-social kid won´t change our lives unless it changes the politics--the racial politics.

As far as the c---ns word? obmao has changed the manners drilleed intomost whites. Maybe Paula Dean hasn´t used the n-word for 30 years but many who hadn´t for that long are starting to again. What/whose behavior defines this. The tyranny and unAmerican way of the pres himself. Black power? Old and moldy. Time to renegotiate and get attitude adjustments where they will do the most good. Where? Beats me. Guess start with the one? No one around me cares about the city folkwho determine the general political swing of the political pendulum.

I recall Savage savaging George W. Bush and Dick Cheney on his blowhard talk show the one and only time I ever listened to it. Savage wants (in the worst way) to sound like he´s a ´cut above´ all other conservatives by taking jabs at everyone considered untouchable.

What Savage doesn´t understand is that if you pull a gun you´d better be ready to use it. Zimmerman had no idea what Martin was carrying that night, or if he was alone. Sorry Savage, but Monday morning quarterbacking is not what´s needed on a jury. Fortunately, you will never be called with your fiery hyperbole and tendency to drift into incomprehensibility.

Savage is usually an OK guy, but not very knowledgeable about the street -- or the real world. Specifically, those who don´t chamber a round wind up dead -- against,for example, someone who attacks with a knife.

And, Michael, you are correct that we should not promote foul language at the ladies Rosary Society or the Hadassah. But men have a certain vocabulary that is used freely among men.

What it came down to for me was the powder residue.

If Zimmerman decided to shoot Martin, why do it when he was on top of him? The lack of powder burns on Martin´s skin coupled with GSR on his clothes tells me it went down like Zimmerman claimed.

Also, if I were being followed, and was afraid, I´d flee. Or use my cell to call 911, not an illiterate pinhead.

Martin chose his fate. Was Zimmermann over zealous? Maybe. But Martin holds a greater responsibility for his own demise.

I will have to part ways with Savage on this one. Like others have said, Savage has many
of the facts wrong in this case. I also don´t like the way Savage belittles and makes fun of other conservative talk show hosts like Sean Hannity ("the wall-banger") Greta Van Susteren ("Scarface") or Bill O´Reilly
("the Leprechaun") well, I can´t disagree too much on his description of the blowhard O´Reilly. One thing I do know is that Savage and Mark Levin do not get along together one iota. Levin would use swear words if he could when it comes to describing Savage.

SF, CA is a far piece from Sanford, FL and a whole other world. Michael is hardly an expert on the issue. Probably aren´t too many Dee Dee´s in SF either.

I am constantly disappointed at how many media folks comment on weapons without knowing anything about them.

As other have observed, the pistol in question has no external safety. Savage should have checked this, but I suspect he does not know what an internal safety of double-action is.

His comments make no sense. I will not listen to him again, but I never did anyway.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer: One teacher calls it the "new normal" for southwest Philadelphia´s Bartram High School: a massive brawl in the cafeteria, where students punched and stomped each other, and even attacked school police; firecrackers set off in the building; and the student who fractured the skull of a "conflict resolution specialist" is once again roaming the halls, just two weeks after the attack. Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority." According to the newspaper, four additional Philadelphia and school police officers will be at the school

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

The number of major federal regulations issued in the first five years of the Obama administration was 153.2% higher than during the first five years of the Bush administration, according to data from the Heritage Foundation. “In the first five years of President Obama’s Administration, 157 major federal regulations were issued. By comparison, only 62 major federal regulations were issued during the first five years of the George W. Bush Administration,” according to Heritage’s report, Red Tape Rising: Five Years of Regulatory Expansion.

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks? You start the applications yourself. Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf. HHS had started the applications for them. The Shark Tank reported: News of the HHS letter was first mentioned by a listener of the popular “Daybreak with Drew Steele” Show on Fox 92.5, which is out of Fort Myers, Florida. After his radio show concluded, another listener emailed Steele telling him about receiving the same

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests. (Besides, in a country where only 44 percent of Americans say there is “solid evidence” of global warming and it’s mostly due to human activity, you can’t round up every dissenter.) Fact-checking scientists are spared. So is “the man on the

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

US employers add 192,000 jobs;

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

SAN DIEGO – Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest. Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite. The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
