LOS ANGELES, CA Ė APRIL 26: mother of Trayvon Martin, Sybrina Fulton speaks during a rally at West Los Angeles Church in Christ to mark the two-month anniversary of her sonís death as his father Tracy Martin looks on April 26, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Which image? The real one or the one the media is trying to create?

His image? 14% of the population is doing nearly 50% of the crime. I shed my white guilt long ago.

That jerk’s image is trash.

Indeed, he could have been the Obamadork’s son.

Blacks are 12.7%. Black males 18-35 are around 4%. So it’s more like 4% committing half of the violent crime.

If you trim the small children, the over 45 and women off that, you have about 2-3% of the population committing 50% of the crimes.

We’ve seen the image, and we can draw conclusions just like anyone can. I have yet to see the racial aspect of it. I’m sure Zimmerman past the lie detector test, otherwise the Prosecution would be going for murder 1.

The trial is not about Trayvon. It is about Zimmerman. This family is making it about Trayvon. If the prosecuting attorney were to somehow try to make it about Trayvon, Zimmerman would walk. For one thing, the statement by the POTUS, that Trayvon could be his son, is prejudicial and were it to be found to influence the outcome of this trial, would result in a mistrial and possibly a dismissal with prejudice. We cannot have such nonsense affecting the outcomes of our trials.

Try 77% of violent crime. Where is the "black guilt"?

They sued the housing association and got 1 million+ ........................An out of court settlement, with a deep pocket defendant? Interesting. What was the cause of action, wrongful death? I guess the defense council figured Zimmerman should have stayed down and got his head smashed in by someone who really showed his own hateful side. This case is going to be front page news nationwide. Think this country is divided now? Wait!

And at any one time up to a third of them are incarcerated, so it’s likely closer to 2.8-3%.

Fight for his image? That's hysterical. He was a gangbanger thug, just like his dad. Until recently his dad sported a prominent neck tattoo that said CaT, a well known acronym for "Crippin all the Time". Dad was a Crip in his youth in East St. Louis. Sometime after March 22 dad had the tattoo modified to show praying hands. Attempted damage control? Too little too late. Crump, the Martins, and anyone associated with the "Scheme Team" are all thugs, race hucksters, and con men.

I wonder if that $1M+ would have to be returned if it turns out it was gotten by fraud, i.e., that perpetrated by Crump and the parents.

Wonder if the money went to cover up the Crips tattoo on Tracy Martin’s neck?

Had these Ghetto Slime had paid attention to their son while he was alive....he may still be alive. Instead...they are trying to lynch an innocent man

“Trayvon: “I lost da 1st round :) but won da 2nd nd 3rd.”

Friend: “Ohhh So It Wass 3 Rounds? Damn well at least yu wonn lol but yuu needa stop fighting.”

Trayvon: “Nay im not done with fool….. he gone hav 2 see me again.”

Friend: “Nooo… Stop, yuu waint gonn bee satisified till yuh suspended again, huh?”

Trayvon told another friend at the time that his mother wanted him to move in with his dad after he was suspended.

“Da police caught me outta skool,” Trayvon wrote.”

In the Stephen Crane novella Maggie: A Girl of the Streets the Irish mother Mary Johnson assuages her guilt and feeds her denial with a bucket of beer. I understand camera lights can have the same effect.

Yeh the kids mother had kicked him out for basically being a little bad azz. He was a future inmate of Raiford prison. If he had not decided to go all street fighter on George Zimmerman he would likely have lived long enough to do something really bad.

I dare the GRIO to start publishing his 7 Eleven photo. It’s part of the public domain, not traydemarkable, the last known picture of Martin, and free. I’m sure that when any of those other pictures are published that they have to pay the Martin foundation.

Come on, Grio, show some cojones and start publishing pictures of the real Trayvon that night — how he would want to be remembered.
