Skip to comments.Lawyers for Trayvon Martin's killer accused of "witch hunt" (Want his records)

Lawyers defending the neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin have launched a "witch hunt" by seeking Martin's school and social media records, the family's lawyer said on Monday.
"I think certainly it is a witch hunt to try to find something to attack the character of a dead child and it's completely irrelevant because his school records had nothing to do with him (George Zimmerman) shooting Trayvon Martin in the heart on February 26," said Martin family attorney Ben Crump.
Zimmerman lawyer Mark O'Mara announced on his website last week that he had subpoenaed Martin's entire school file from the Miami-Dade public school district, including test scores, any disciplinary actions and attendance records.
At the time of his death, Martin, a 17-year-old high school student, was serving a 10-day suspension from school after being caught with a plastic baggie containing traces of marijuana.
Martin was spending a week with his father and father's fiancée in a gated town-home community in Sanford, just north of Orlando....

No bias in that headline!
But I fixed it for them.
Zimmerman’s lwyers will show that Trayvon went to that 7-11 to buy Skittles and Arizona watermelon tea because those were the ingredients Trayvon needed to add to the Robitussin to brew up some “lean”. Trayvon’s school records may reveal plenty, especially if they include confiscation of drugs, drug paraphenalia, or codeine cough medicine.
This is no “witch hunt” - - this is how you battle the lynch mob.
Not to mention physical attacks upon others.
I think if they just publicized his Facebook posts, the attitude would change.
I presume Zimmerman's lawyers will call to the stand that bus driver Trayvon suckered.
It’s not a witch hunt; it’s called “discovery”.
They’s bein’ affeared that they’s too many of them there WEITCHES in ‘ol traaavon’s closets for to be found.
Bes’ not to look-—Ya know what I’m sayin’??
A "witch hunt" eh???
You mean that they won't find any awards for academic excellence??? and no perfect attendance ribbons???
The Crumpsters must know what's in those records for them to label the discovery a "witch hunt".
“the character of a dead child”
The “child” was old enough to enlist in the military, with one parent’s permission.
Had he survived he would be facing attempted murder charges and we and all he records would be public now.
Sad to say, Trayvon's parents might be relieved that they are no longer faced with his deliquent behavior.
obammy and his son both want their records sealed. there’s nothing bad in there, you just don’t need to see them. they’re great guys, just ask them, they’ll tell you!
well, one of them will.
Gee, you think they could have come up with more bias in that headline?
Here is what they are after and why they are after it:
