After the courts are through with Trayvon Martin's sweatshirt, which he was wearing when he was killed, will it wind up in an evidence locker...or a museum?
Long after the trial ends, the evidence remains.
Sometimes, it's returned to family members. Other times, if it's valuable, it's auctioned off. And then, if there's no more room for it in the court house or police station and the case is long closed, it's destroyed.
In the case of Trayvon Martin's iconic black hooded sweatshirt, which he was wearing the night neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman shot and killed him in 2012, there will be no return to a family member, appearance at an auction or trip to the incinerator. At least not yet.
Last week, the Washington Post reported, Sanford, Fla., police removed the infamous garment from the frame it had been displayed in when prosecutors showed it to the jury during Zimmerman's trial. Zimmerman, who was charged with second degree murder and manslaughter in Martin's death, was acquitted last month.
After the trial, the hoodie was placed in an evidence bag and driven by Sanford Police to a Justice Department office in Orlando, along with other items Martin possessed on the night of his death, including a bag of Skittles and an AriZona brand beverage....

To be displayed as the Shroud of Trayvon at NAACP headquarters.
It’s already hanging in the OJ Simpson The Glove Didn’t Fit Museum currently located in the Nevada State Prison in the small town of Godforsakendesert.
Probably in the Smithsonian Institution.
The nearest outhouse?
” Probably in the Smithsonian Institution. “
Then some black kid wearing a hoodie will steal it....
Obama’s Presidential Library and Bribe Depository.
Ascended to Heaven?
The Hoodie didn't do anything! Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman! He could have been wearing a Tuxedo!
Some really slutty performer will offer the most money to use it as a G-string.
But that’ll have to wait until after it’s finished the four years of college donated to it, and a free trip around the world, MSNBC and CNN are making competing offers to give it a prime-time show...
Good thing GM donated that car so it can get around- there’s so much for it to do!
Maybe they can also display the bag of Skittles and can of uhhhmmmm Watermelon Juice and lighter and grass stained pants and will find his shoes by then too. The RATL might even let them have the concrete from his last bash.
That, alone, should get you 6 months in jail............The Death Penalty in Boston...........
The trash sounds fine......
Probably in the Cathedral of St. Hillary of Benghazi annex to the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor. Cuz he was the first black President, and all...
You mean Lovelock? It's a nice place to drive through, but you wouldn't want to visit.
It's a nice place to be from.Far from.
It would be wonderful for my scary front yard scarecrow this October
Jay-Z will buy it and hang it above center court at Brooklyn Nets games.
“The trash sounds fine......”
Jim, this is why we need a like button.
What is Trayvon’s mom doing today and where is she?
Right alongside Howdy Doody for which the city paid $300,000.
The Question is how much will “The Hoody” be worth one day?
I thought it smelled really bad, due to it not having been dried out after collection? That’s why it was placed in the frame.
Figuring out how to make $$$ of said hoodie.
We (group of four 23 year old girls) walked into a bar and I wore my Yankees T-shirt! Little did I know, a Yankees/Redsox game had been rescheduled due to rain for that night! My friends wanted me to put my shirt on inside out! I said no!!
One guy asked if he could send us over a pitcher of Sam Adams for my bravery! I said only if I can watch it being poured and carry it to the table myself! Which I did!
I think everyone here would agree 100% on where Al should put it
My grandsons,age 8 and 10 at the time were verbally harassed by kids at LAX waiting for a flight.
My guys had Red Sox Tees on and the others had Yankee shirts on.
It’s an on-going rivalry.
Hmmm.... This has me thinking of placing a can of Arizona Watermelon fruit juice and a few boxes of Skittles into a sealed dog urine filled aquarium. I’ll call my art piece, “Muggers Last Stand”.
Look for it on eBay.
Now on a serious note, this entire conversation is recidivous.
Nailed to a cross and on display as High Art, probably.
Hung on the wall of the Oval Office bathroom where Klintoon got Lewinski’d.
Auctioned off to the highest bidder - mama needs moe money.
They MUST also display the "wet grass" that ms. I can't read cursive "heard" over the phone.
But—But—Chicago PD has hundreds of hoodies worn by DEAD black children.
Small pieces will be put in reliquaries for veneration at shrines dedicated to Saint Trayvon and will be objects of pilgrimage by liberals. Although I expect Al Sharpton to be waving the blood stained hoodie while delivering a stem winding speech at the 2016 Democratic convention.
I have a son,born and raised in MA,who has been working in NYC for 20 years.
In 2004 during the ALCS I asked how he kept his joy in check when the Sox won.
He said that he tells everyone that he’s a diehard Mets fan and doesn’t like the Yankees.
Duct tape it!
I’m sure some liberal church will hang it from their cross.
And, once a year every July, they’ll celebrate communion with Arizona Watermelon and Skittles.
“will it wind up in an evidence locker...or a museum?”
How about as toilet paper?
