As the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida continues to dominate headlines around the world, United Nations “High Commissioner for Human Rights” Navi Pillay publicly demanded an investigation of the incident and the prosecution of shooter George Zimmerman. She also expressed concerns about the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law that allows would-be victims to defend themselves.
Speaking at a press conference in Barbados, Pillay joined the growing chorus of race-profiteers, anti-gun zealots, and supposed “civil rights” activists in attempting to exploit the tragedy. "As High Commissioner for Human Rights, I call for an immediate investigation," she told the press, apparently unaware that local, state, and federal investigations were already well underway to determine the facts in the case.
The February 26 shooting of black 17-year-old Martin by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman — oddly dubbed a “white Hispanic” by much of the press — has fueled a firestorm of controversy. Zimmerman maintains that he was attacked and fired in self-defense. So far, he has not been charged with a crime.
But the killing sparked a wave of indignation among professional race baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. President Obama even waded into the debate with controversial remarks on Martin’s race, sparking outrage and widespread criticism. And infamous racists including the “New Black Panther Party” latched onto the fatal shooting to call for vigilante justice by offering a bounty on Zimmerman.
