Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin's Final Hour (Long, in-depth analysis of his actions.)
Posted on 05/22/2013 6:06:42 AM PDT by servo1969
On the rainy night of February 26, 2012, neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman shot and killed an unarmed seventeen-year-old named Trayvon Martin. Three months later, a regular at the Conservative Treehouse blog known as Diwataman discovered the raw video of Martin's visit to the 7-11 that fateful night and initiated arguably the best bit of blogging detective work since the busting of Dan Rather's Air National Guard scam eight years earlier.
"I think Trayvon may know these three guys," Diwataman commented in reference to a trio of hooded young men who entered the store almost immediately after Martin left. For a variety of good reasons, Diwataman labeled the guys "the three stooges," and the name stuck. What Diwataman discovered quickly is that the blogger "noneyobusiness" had already come to the same conclusion. Together, they and other "Treepers" from the Treehouse -- "People help each other out," says Diwataman -- reconstructed Martin's final hour in a way that was wildly at odds with the scenario advanced by the major media but much closer to the truth. In all versions, the iconic bag of Skittles is at the heart of the story.
On March 7, 2012, in the first national news story on the case, Reuters led with the Skittles angle: "Trayvon Martin was shot dead after he took a break from watching NBA All-Star game television coverage to walk 10 minutes to a convenience store to buy snacks including Skittles candy requested by his 13-year-old brother, Chad." Reuters attributed this information to Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump. "What do the police find in his pocket? Skittles," Crump told Reuters. "A can of Arizona ice tea in his jacket pocket and Skittles in his front pocket for his brother Chad."
Much of this information was wrong.

Tray had two arms. And he was apparently using them to apply a beating similar to his fun fights.
May justice prevail.
Great timeline breakdown, very informative.
So essentially Martin went to 7-11 to buy watermelon flavored drink and Skittles to make a cocktail with dextromethorphan to get high. He also unsuccessfully tried to buy cigars to hollow out and pack with marijuana to smoke (a blunt).
Nothing the media’s purported to be true up to this point is anywhere near the truth or at the least leaves out critical information that casts Martin in an unfavorable light.
Well written and very specific article. Thanks for posting !
Not as much fun as Al Sharpton's informative IT and Skillets rant.
"And there's no doubt that he was not under life extenuating circumstances uhh unless IT and Skillets are considered a threat."
Because it’s in FL, I don’t think Zimmermann can get acquitted.
St. Skittles and the Three Stooges Ping.
I had heard reports about Martin at the 7-11, but this one is very complete.
I find the fact that the button and earbuds were in his pocket to be very interesting.
Its like he put them in his pocket, because he planned on getting into a fight.
George Zimmerman was on the whoopassed end of an MMA beatdown. He finally pulled out the great little equalizer that many of us MMA challenged folks carry and saved himself from a possible bad ending.
Seems to me the media and the police released anything damning they could about Zimmerman, and hid everything they could damning about Martin.
So glad to see such clear equal justice under the law here. /s
I got sidetracked on a link in this article that breaks down the fact that Martin had purchased 2/3 ingredients used for making "Lean"(skittles and a fruity drink -watermelon flavored). The last ingredient he needed was DXM. It is found in robitussum DM or codeine cough syrup. It is sipped slowly for a narcotic effect.
The link also had screen grabs from Martin's twitter page with a conversation with another looking for codeine because of the higher DXM concentration.
