George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.

I can't believe that big sour-looking guy in what appears to be an orange jumpsuit shot that cute, little kid.

Yes, sarcasm.

“In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman’s description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin. “


so now they are giving the names of minors who witnesses in the case....think this is a way for the race baiters to silence and intimidate the kid???

The girlfriend probably knows more than she is saying.

Trayvon Martin was suspended from school because of marijuana. Was he selling to school friends? Did he go out for more than Skittles and iced tea the day he died, which is why his grilfriend told him to run from Zimmerman?

I sure hope the technicians did a thorough job of looking over the grounds at that community. Wonder if they found a baggie with marijuana in it.

No, according to his own brother, he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless.

drip..drip..drip..little pieces of info that were likely always available, but deseminated selectively by the press
to create the perception of martin being ‘gunned down for no reason.’ i stand by my theory that holder knows Zimmerman
wont be charged,knowing that when that announcement is made, all hell will break loose. we’re all pawns in their game, i guess.

Not only that, but according to the Miami Herold, Martin also wrote “WTF” in graffiti on his locker along with another boy. Also had women’s jewelry on him(Possibly from home burglaries) WOW what a model student and a upstanding citizen this chubby cheek kid is turning out to be

If Martin has initiates the incident, Zimmerman would have pulled his gun before Martin would have gotten close to him.

Possibly from home burglaries

Also possibly payment from students who raided mama's bling box to pay for the weed they was buyin' from Trayvon.

Of course, this is pure speculation on my part.

Of course he had to be selling to friends or why else take pot in a baggie to school? If you just wanted to get high you do it before school or after, or if you’re a real loser you’d sneak out and get high during the day but in that case you’d just sneak a joint in your locker or something.
Having pot in a baggie is def a sign he was selling or maybe bringing it for someone as a nice gift, you know?
:D

I found this link pretty thorough in finding bits of his past including pictures of him, his tattoos & tweets. It gives a clearer picture of his friends and habits but you won't hear about it in the news as usual. Such an innocent kid with gold teeth, tattoos at 17 and school suspensions. Let the liberals continue to dig a hole with this, including idiot hollyweirdos supporting this rubbish that he was such an angel. I can tell that his horns were all that was holding his halo on straight.

This case is amazing! Mr.Martin was shot in the chest - No! Trayvon was shot in the back of the head!!

Mr. Martin was suspended for ten days because the school found an empty plastic bag with scant remains of marijuana - No! Trayvon’s brother says, “he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless”.

Hmm...I find the story of the beaten bus driver unlikely, because such a violent crime would have landed Trayvon Martin in juvenile detention rather than being released to the custody of his father.

I’m curious to know why Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend urged him to run away from Zimmerman. If Martin had a right to be there, then he had no reason to run and could have told Zimmerman who he was staying with at that community. But he did not do so. Why?

“so now they are giving the names of minors who witnesses in the case....think this is a way for the race baiters to silence and intimidate the kid???”


The authors had to include the fact that the 13-year-old eyewitness was named Austin Brown so that it was clear to the reader that he was a white kid (black parents don’t name their kids Austin, at least not back in 1999) and thus not to be believed.

On what basis?

You can’t pull a gun on an unarmed man that isn’t attacking you?

That is assault with a deadly weapon.

Depends on if it was a scuffle or a full-on beating.

What I was sent:

“No, according to his own brother, he was suspended for beating a bus driver senseless”.

Could have started as a scuffle, but beating someone “senseless”...I don’t think that is a minor administrative problem but rather a criminal issue involving battery.

The more we learn, the worse it looks for the choirboy who was merely visiting his father.

I’m asking everyone to refrain from responding to my posts on this case from previous days, now and in the future, meaning posts from today and future days. Our knowledge changes daily. A tragedy is becoming a tragi-comedy.

I don't think his girlfriend urged him to run.

I think his girlfriend urged him to “go kick his ass” and that initiated the fatal ending.

It's not like that hasn't happened before, and I remember reading about a black woman telling her boyfriend in line at I think a fast food restaurant to “kick his ass”, referring to another man in line and it ended up in a fatality.

Gee, idle speculation can bring about all kinds of wild theories!

Based on this kids behavior, I'm beginning to think that Martin was on track to one day be knocked off by one of da brothas' in da Hood.

I’m sure that the police have videotape of Mr.Martin buying Skittles and iced tea. I’m sure they have the times when Mr.Martin and his girlfriend talked on the cell phone.

If Mr.Martin was gone for longer than it took to buy the candy and drink, and he was talking to the girlfriend in Miami the whole time, she knows far more than she has let on publicly. And the police may be aware of that.
