Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin to go under the public microscope, like George Zimmerman did

On Friday, Sept. 14, the Orlando Sentinel stated that in response to the defense seeking Trayvon Martin's social media records and school records, which could show behavioral issues and more about the deceased, that the prosecution will release additional records on the accused next week.
The family of the deceased has called the defense's request for personal records as "character assassination" and a "witch hunt," but any criminal defense attorney worth their salt calls it putting on a complete defense for their accused client.
And since George Zimmerman's own life hangs in the balance in a court of law, it seems prudent for the facts to come out about each male's public and private life and records--especially if something in those records could shed better light on the shooting death.
Naturally, an attorney for the Martin family is saying the request for records which may show the Sanford, Florida shooting victim in a negative light is "an attack" on the deceased, as HLN reports.
Yet if nothing derogatory is found on the dead youth, then what harm is there in requesting records that show him as an exemplary young man without any known gang ties or issues about conduct unbecoming?
Wednesday, Sept. 19 appears to be the date the public will get that answer, with the state slated to release their last batch of evidence regarding the shooting that took the life of the youth on school suspension, and the defense finally obtaining all the data from schools sought 10 days earlier.
And while it is generally the case that school records are not released to the public at large, this is also a nationally headline-generating case with racial repercussions that appear to dictate deviating from the norm in order to keep the public better informed about the facts....

His parents may want to get those book and movie deals done if they haven’t already done so.
I’m thinking the media coverage is going to be ... ... ... ... insert cricket noises here.
I understood he was just an 11 year old Hollister wearing clean cut kid.
This certainly should be fun.
This comment by the family clearly indicates that there's "dirt" to be found if they look hard enough.My money's on the kids having been a worthless punk-in-the-making.Or maybe even worse...a fully formed worthless punk.
The Martin family and attorneys are going to come unglued when this all comes out and they will need another session with Dr Phil to help them to rationalize it all away like he did today.
What’ll the jury hears that the thug Trayvon went to that 7-11 in the rain to get the Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Tea because those were the ingredients he needed to add to the Robitussin to brew up some “lean”. This should be a fun trial.
Having taught in a predominately black urban school system for the past 10 years, I can attest to everything you have said, particularly about how their culture is not completely civilized. I have said this countless times.

Really, and what do they call what has happened to George Zimmerman? Do they think George was cordially invited to spend time in prison? Do they htink that the prosecution levelling FALSE CHARGES agaisnt him was actually terms of endearment? Do they think the black comunity issuing DEATH WARRENTS agaisnt George was acts of kidnness and love?
I wonder how much trayvon’s mother has made of the trademark she put on Trayvon’s name? What a class act-

You can’t imply intent- you have to show he itnended to brew it up- aqnd that’s impossible to do- Not stickign up for trayvon, just commenting on the comment as I don’t think it wil lweven be allowed in court even if those are the ingredients for lean-
[[Given that *nobody*,apart from the kid and Zimmerman,knows who did what to whom,when and why the best way for a reasonable,unbiased person to develop a hunch as to exactly what *did* happen]]
There was a witness
Discovery is a B|tch.
The Medical Examiner’s report shows that Trayvon’s liver was damaged in a way that is consistent with the use of LEAN/PURPLE LEAN. Trayvon’s Facebook and Twitter pages has words describing his sippin sippin (using Lean or DXM) for at least a year, perhaps longer.
Check out on the web stories of those affected by DXM abuse. They become unfeeling zombies that lose touch with reality. It is a shame that his parents let their son go down the toilet of drug abuse.
I’m still wondering what exactly were those jewelry found in his backpack at school...the cops let him go because no one “reported” them missing but you know, once I lost several semi-valuable rings, and I was pretty sure that my sons’ friends took them, but because I couldn’t prove it,(I might have mislaid them at work when I washed my hands at the hospital) so I didn’t report it to the cops.
I bet if they put out a description, someone would be able to recognize them, and they might find he was paying for his drugs with money from stealing things. Or was his family rich enough to fund his drug habit?
