Let's get real and stick only to the facts!
media needs to stop showing old pics of both Trayvon Martin and George
Zimmerman. Trayvon at the time of his death was 6 feet tall and 140 lbs.
George was 5'9" and about 150 lbs..the pic they keep showing is from o5
when he was heavier. Tonight on the news they played an audio from a
witness that saw George 24 hrs after the incident and he said he had a
big lump on the bridge of his nose and 2 black eyes and a big bandage on
the back of his head. He said everyone knows bruising from a broken
nose doesn't show up right away..He said George was in a lot of pain and
anyone could see he had been attacked.. Martin was in no way a little angel boy as the
parents want ppl to see..Martin didn't like being followed..But if he felt threatened in any way and or felt he was being unjustly sought out, the normal thing for him to do would have been to call police..They keep saying George kept following although he was told not to..How does anyone know that? And what diff would that possibly make on the fact that Trayvon made the decision to attack George? A witness told police what happened and it was the same story George gave..Why the hell are protesters trying to go above the law? Why are they making this a race case? Why are they automatically assuming George killed Trayvon for absolutely no reason? It's ludicrous and illogical!!!
Why does the media persist in clinging to the notion that Trayvon was
the little 12 year-old child in the old pictures of him they keep
showing? In reality, he had a gold grill in his teeth and was tattooed
up. Trayvon was actually a thug with all the bells and whistles. So
why won’t the media talk about who Trayvon really was?
First, Martin’s school suspension record. According to an investigation by the Miami Herald, Martin was suspended twice -
once in October of last year for graffiti, and prior to the shooting
for possession of a bag with traces of marijuana and a “marijuana pipe.”
Martin was also found in possession of some jewelry and what
the Herald describes as a “burglary tool,” though these items were not
convincingly established as being owned by Martin himself, following an
independent investigation by police.
Both offenses, which would fall under the umbrellas of “vandalism”
and “possession or use of alcohol and/or controlled substances,” would
be sufficient to merit ten day suspensions under district policy.
Martin was apparently also suspended at an indeterminate time in the
past for tardiness and/or truancy, though the Herald does not specify
for how long.
