Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school because he was caught with an empty plastic bag with traces of marijuana in it, the boys family attorney has confirmed.
Trayvon was killed while serving out the suspension in Sanford Florida, where his fathers girlfriend lives. A community watch volunteer who thought he looked drugged out and suspicious called police and later wound up in a fight with him.
The two scuffled and volunteer George Zimmerman shot Trayvon, killing him. He has not been charged.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to converge on Sanford on Monday for an afternoon rally to protest the killing, which occurred one month ago today.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, the Rev. Al Sharpton and comedian Sinbad are expected to speak at a 5 p.m. special City Commission meeting.
Several busloads of protesters left Miami early Monday to participate.

Has anyone brought up the photo doctoring in the media.
I see what you did there.
So true. One day is might be us/family. We MUST reign in the media - as NEWT is doing. Only Patriots have the will and guts to do it!
Probably more of a talker, than doer.
Not supporting the hood lifestyle, but many black youth talk gangsta without really living it.
That would be stabbing.
Quite possibly both.
Selling to support his habit.
If you don’t want to be mistaken for a ‘gangsta’, then don’t look and talk like one.
Additionally, the MSM in this story does not tell us of the intensive training in drug interdiction and criminal identification that Zimmerman had as the rank of officer in the Neighborhood Watch.
And we are told that Travon was carrying “Skittles” and “Ice Tea”’ when he was apprehended and shot.
Could “Skittles” be some euphemism for some illegal drug like Ecstasy or perhaps rocks of crack cocaine?
Could “Ice Tea” really me heroin or some new kind of crack cocaine or meth?
I agree with you there.
There are sometimes real-world consequences for living out fantasies.
Not necessarily. This family has told lies in the past. The father told the police it was NOT his son screamthe 911 tape, then told the media and the lynch mob that it was.
File under, " When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong "
Rotflmao. Good one. It’s funny cuz its true.
I have a family lawyer.
It's my sister, but she is family, after all.
Well, that should lower the surrounding areas' crime rates.
What exactly are “traces” of marijuana? That should be pursued.
Nothing is guaranteed, but it would fit as to why Trayvon was in an unauthorized area, to make a deal.
This article is still running the AP picture of when he was a child.
