Was Trayvon Martin a Drug Dealer?
Wagist ^ | 3/25/12 | Dan Linehan

Posted on 03/25/2012 7:17:09 PM PDT by Nachum

Above is the iconic picture we’ve been become accustomed to seeing everywhere in the media, used to represent the recent Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Florida. From everything the public has been told, Trayvon Martin was a fresh-faced, innocent looking teenager and the visage of the man who shot him, George Zimmerman, is right out of a booking photo.

The media narrative being sold is quite clear, Trayvon Martin is the innocent victim here and George Zimmerman is a horrible bigot who attacked the young man for doing nothing more than buying skittles while being black. Even Barack Obama seems to accept the fresh-faced innocence of Trayvon, stating, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” More on that later.

It’s becoming more and more clear however that the innocent appearance the mainstream media is so desperate to apply to Trayvon isn’t at all accurate. The picture we’re used to seeing to represent Trayvon Martin appears to be a far cry from how he actually looked once he was a few years older.

Yes Mr. Obama, I do indeed believe he could be your son.

That's when Ron Paul supporters get the munchies. Most go to Taco Bell but Skittles will do.

The city manager said his body lay in the morgue for three days before any of his friends or family said anything about his not being around. Maybe he roamed the city pretty much at will at all hours doing something or other?

| That would be "private information" and would never reach the press, since it doesn't fit the theme selected by the media.

Wouldn’t make any sense. No drugs were found on his body.

If he were a ‘steerer’, where was his base? What was he doing in a gated community? Drug users in such places typically place orders by phone or internet, and get deliveries from a guy who arrives in a nice car and blends into the neighborhood.

Someone on another thread a day or two ago said it was 6:30 PM. I have no idea, but have distrusted the media/Dem/activist portrayal of this young man and Mr Zimmerman since I first heard about it.

I think everybody should be careful with this story. Its really going to come down to a couple of very basic facts that don’t have anything to do with time of day or whether Martin was a drug dealer.

Well, there are actual facts in the case of time.

19:11 Zimmerman calls police.
19:12 Martin calls his girlfriend--Call last 4 minutes
19:17 Police arrive at scene of event
19:30 EMT announce Mr. Martin dead

Police report says they were report/dispatched/arrived at 1917. They didn’t get complete and clear of call until 0307.

So, the shooting happened at about 7pm, depending on response times.

Thanks again for that link. It must have still been daylight if it was 617pm. That explains why there are at least 3 (redacted) witnesses on the report. If ONE of them thought it was a manslaughter, I would think Zimmerman would have been charged post-haste. And would have had some kind of bond hearing.

This thing is either going to evaporate when the truth comes out, or will be allowed to "fester" until violence erupts.

Treyvon’s character matters.

Did he swing at a school bus driver leading to his suspension? A propensity for violent confrontations.

“No Limit” is a gangsta rap label. Tata. Weed. Gold teeth.

Not quite the squeaky clean young boy the MSM is selling

Agree though. Did TM swing first? Was he in top of Zimmerman beating him? .

They say the dad reported him missing the next day and then at some point the police came by to show photos to dad.

Dad called and told mom and mom told dad he needed to go to the morgue to make sure or she went? Something like that.

So I think it may have been 3 days before somebody went to the morgue for positive ID, but Trayvon was reported missing at some point the following afternoon.

I think that is it...

*snip*
“I had gone out for dinner,” says Tracy, “and when I got home, Trayvon wasn’t there. I tried calling his cell phone several times, and it went straight to voicemail. I wasn’t that worried, because he had been spending time with my 20-year-old nephew who was a responsible young man. There wasn’t a panic that he wasn’t at home. I figured that they had gone to the movies, because they had said they might. So I laid down, thinking they would show up later.”

The next morning, when he woke up, Tracy realized that Trayvon had not returned home. “I started making calls, and I reached my nephew,” Martin says. “He said he hadn’t seen Trayvon. Then I really started getting worried. So I called the Sheriff’s department to file a missing persons report. I let them know it hadn’t been 24 hours, but it was unusual for Trayvon not to return home.”

The great advantage of Internet, somebody once said, adopting a saying about the 1st Amendment, is that you can instantly tell the idiots.

3AM? No, 6:30PM, big difference.

Somebody has been starting threads with alleged photographs of Martin as a gangsta, and accusing the MSM of suppressing truth and evidence. Well, the FR Admins have been thankfully deleting these threads, as the photos were of different Trayson Martins. So much for FR’s credibility, without even having to defend the indefensible MSM.

Again, the encounter lasted about 7 minutes, and ended when sun was still up. Mr Zimmerman did not hit his head on the concrete, as far as we know, since the only witness, one “John”, saw them tumbling on the grass. This is the third or fourth day of “discussions” and insults and accusation of Communist, DU and race war sympathies, and the same misinformation and fantasy pieces still appear. I mentioned only a couple of them.

Still, reading through press reports on the web today, I found a lot of discrepancies. For example, one report, that I can no longer locate, said 40 recent burglaries in the neighbourhood. How recent, I don’t remember, a year or two it said, and I remember the number 40, which I repeated on these threads. Today I’ve found two reports which say one 8, and the other 15 burglaries in the past year. Who do you want to believe?

Martin got in the fight while on the phone with the girlfriend. The police were very close to arriving.

Zimmerman was on the ground being beaten when the witness “John” saw him. Zimmerman yelled “help me” and “call the police.”

If Treyvon thought he was being threatened why didn’t he ask his girlfriend to alert police or call them himself?

The gangsta rap anti-police music he loved my have cost Trayvon his life.

Good Find Nachum. Interesting. It’s pretty clear what happened imo.

Zimmerman is so afraid that he and his wife have moved. I read last nite that the police don’t even know his location but he has been in touch with them.

This whole thing stinks and the racebaiters and haters continue to throw gasoline on it.

I have a question. How did this all get started to begin with? I mean this happened Feb 26 right? What caused this to erupt? (do you know?)

Sounds like he sold weed. And sounds like he did something PRET-Ty bad at school to get suspended for 10 days. And it sounds like he was assaulting Zimmerman very badly. Badly enough to use self defense.

I don’t know what to make of the content of the article at this time, but I want to point out something regarding the pictures contained therein.

Notice the picture of Trayvon as a younger boy in the red shirt. Notice the line under his right eye on his right cheek. It is a faint, lighter colored line or mark that may be a scar or something along those lines.

Now notice the picture of Trayvon with gold teeth. Note that the exact same mark appears under his right eye on his right cheek.

That is him.

And now I am going to say this.

Those of you who may still have the scrubbed pic of “Trayvon all grown up”, look at his right cheek under his right eye and tell me what you see there...

Is that the same mark still visible even though his head is tilted back? I don’t know. Quite frankly, I’m afraid to answer my own question.

No idea. More than that, I don’t that we have any idea of who to believe.

Yes, the race baiters have ahold of it now. They aren’t letting go either. The Jews of Crown Heights know well what happens to ginned up crowds. The city of Los Angeles experience intense race riots after Rodney King.

It is madness spilling forth, and there isn’t much you or I can do about it.

I am starting to wonder if Trayvon did pop positive for drugs and that is why Jesse Jackson was making such a fuss about it.

“We know right now that the child who was killed was drug tested and the killer was not, so we are humiliated by that.”

Thing is, I think a postmortem toxicology tests pretty standard. A more broad one is done for cases like Breitbart but a basic one in cases like gunshot yada.

Everything is speculation. Why didn't Mr. Zimmerman wait...etc.

We all have our 'theories'. Including myself.
