Skip to comments.Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father, scrutinized over suspicious activity
Posted on 06/29/2013 3:51:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Over the last several months, much has been heard from Tracy Martin, the father of Trayvon Martin.
In February of last year, Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, who claims that this was done in self-defense. At the time, Martin was unarmed and seventeen years old.
Since then, his history of truancy, firearms-related issues, and handling marijuana among other things has come to light. Nonetheless, Zimmerman was eventually charged with second-degree murder and is now standing trial.
Evidence suggests that Zimmerman suffered head injuries the night Martin died, though exactly how and why remains a mystery. What is certain, however, is that the shootings aftermath has been highly polarizing. It has also drawn considerable attention to the oft-overlooked central Florida port city of Sanford, where the shooting took place.
In a recent interview with popular black-interest blog The Root, Tracy Martin said that (y)ou cant prepare your child to contend with the warped mentality of someone else. You can only teach them to be good and live by the laws of the land. George Zimmerman acted in a deranged way and all the evidence supports that. I know how society negatively portrays black boys, and my son Trayvon wasnt naive. He wasnt blind to stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination. But I shouldnt have to tell my child to fear walking to the store to get snacks just because hes black.
On Monday, according to Good Morning America, Tracy Martin reportedly cursed at a supporter of George Zimmerman.....

“Central Florida port city of Sanford?”
I don’t think so. Whoever wrote this needs a geography lesson.
Some role model. Just one issue after another with this bunch of dysfunctional losers.
We have witnesses who saw baby Trayvon pinning Zimmerman to the ground and swinging down at him. That's not enough to solve this mystery?
...and trying to kill Zimmerman at the time the single shot was fired.
Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, Joe, not Captain.
Bullsh!t...he went to the store to get the ingredients needed to get high. And once high, he might muster the courage to engage in a little B and E.
The language of victimhood is "my little victim is always innocent because he lives in the racist culture of Whitey." "Sure, he might get high and steal...and even kill Whitey...but so what...it's Whitey's world and Whitey's world is designed to keep my innocent child down."
How Zimmerman got his head injury remains a mystery? I don’t think he slipped on a banana peel. His injuries have been well documented by police and witnesses at the scene and photos taken on the night of the shooting. They were also attempted to be HIDDEN by the LEFTIST FRAUDS in the MSM. That is far from a mystery in my book.
“In these photos, Martin himself is making some sort of hand sign. Other individuals photographed are doing the same. TCTH identified said signs as gang-related.”
Seriously? I thought those were signs for “more Skittles”.
I love how he tattoo-ed over his gang tattoo to make it two praying hands. I wonder who paid for that. At this point, I’d guess nbc news.
As if we don’t have enough problems in this country, we have to deal with a-holes like this guy. He’s a friggin’ Crip.
His dead thug kid is worth more to him now than he was if he was alive, and will be worth more to him w/ an acquittal than a conviction.
Truth hurts. But it’s the truth.
port city to lake monroe? LOL
“my little victim is always innocent because he lives in the racist culture of Whitey.”
Yep. IF odongo had a son, he’d be just like this.
I don't know what trial he has been watching but that is nowhere even close to what I have seen and heard coming from that courtroom.
Martin's wanna-be thug son was attempting to live the stereotypical life of a lawless black street thing. He picked a fight with the wrong person and lost.
Maybe the author is afraid that Tracy Martin will sucker punch him, and then beat his head on the sidewalk.
“Martin looked down at the reporter’s name badge and proceeded to call him MF’er..”
How do we know Trayvon wasn’t tending to George Zimmerman’s self-inflicted wounds while having him pinned down? /s
There is more power and meaning to that statement than most folks realize.
Martin wasn’t done in by a racist ‘Whitey’. He was done in by a person of Latino bloodline. This needs to recognized and admitted by all the black ‘Sharptonites’.
Poster boy for “Pay-Me-I’m-A-Victim” -— perpetuating the victim culture is getting a lot of mileage here.
When did they move Sanford???
This is a very dangerous moment for our country. Both sides of the race divide have already made up their minds, and will only be further inflamed by a verdict.
Does it have a wino district that it is famous for???
Well, daddy, don’t raise your son to be a racist thug, and he might grow up to be a doctor, lawyer or engineer. These people make more money than thugs and earn respect in a community.
mo purple drank
The road apple didn’t fall far from the horse’s ass.
This whole thing has been nothing but a racist lynching from the get-go. There should have been outrage that he was even charged. The whole thing is one big cowardly charade.
Only one side will be inflamed by a verdict. If GZ is acquitted, there will probably be riots. If GZ is found guilty, life will go on for non-blacks. However, there still may be riots in jubilation.
>> Evidence suggests that Zimmerman suffered head injuries the night Martin died, though exactly how and why remains a mystery.
Only if you’re willfully ignorant does it remain a mystery.
For those reporters who just can’t figure it out, just do this simple experiment.
a) Find an 18 year old wigged-out black punk (they’re all over, shouldn’t be hard)
b) Find a sidewalk with grass on both sides
c) Lay on your back on the grass, with the back of your head on the sidewalk.
d) Have the punk sit on your thighs, facing you.
e) Politely ask the punk to punch the crap out of your face from his position astride you. (If he didn’t naturally start punching, that is, once he assumed the position; it’s somewhat irresistable for your typical punk.)
f) After 30 to 90 seconds, if you can, politely ask the punk to stop punching you and get off.
g) Have someone take a picture of the front and back of your head.
h) Compare your pictures with Zimmerman’s post-groundpounding trial exhibits, and get back to me.
>> This is a very dangerous moment for our country. Both sides of the race divide have already made up their minds
What you say is true; however there is one thing I can absolutely, positively guarantee.
If there *is* serious violence, WHITE PEOPLE WILL **NOT** START IT. The hand that touches the match to the powder keg will be a black one.
You can take that to the bank.
Technically so is Sanford.........
You pinned it. Lots of non-blacks are too stupid to figure out what is going on. Maybe not Deedee stupid but stupid enough.
St. Johns River flows north to Jacksonville...
White guilt - and the cash that comes from it are powerful incentives.
Central Florida port city of Sanford?
I dont think so. Whoever wrote this needs a geography lesson.
In the 1800’s Sanford was an important inland Port City with a thriving Riverboat style trade up the St. Johns River to Jacksonville. There was also a major rail head there for railroad traffic into Central Florida and across to Tampa. A lot of Agricultural Products, mainly beef and Citrus were transported by Rail and Riverboat in that area.
Intracoastal or Intercoastal? Huge difference and I do not know the answer sir.
Ha, the photo is from The Conservative Tree House, man they are on the job over there.
A quibble: he might have been high on MJ already.
Intra. It’s typically between the coastal barrier islands and the mainland but sometimes dredged channels or old canals, sheltered from open seas.
If it were intercoastal it would need to go from coast to coast to make linguistic sense. I suppose it does in a way, since the Gulf has one, too. No idea if the two connect on the southern tip of Florida or not.
Regardless, it’s still intracoastal.
The Panama Canal is an intercoastal waterway.
Someone should post that reaction photo from the OJ Simpson criminal trial verdict.
Cape Girardeau, Missouri too.
