New information is putting a new twist on the Trayvon Martin case.
It has come out that the unarmed teenager was suspended from school, and is accused of beating up the man who then shot him dead.
Martin's parents claim authorities are now trying to sully their son's reputation, after his tragic shooting.

Florida press? Most are still beating the "racism" drum.
Hell, the media in Australia is now reporting the fully story.
Martin's parents claim authorities are now trying to sully their son's reputation, after he failed to complete his planned beatdown of ZimmermanCan't be having Trayvon perceived as a weakling.
Joe Scarborough could not be reached for comment.
Mama's worried he trademark won't be worth Obama.
The Miami reports I’ve seen quickly mention Zim’s account, then go HEAVILY into Al Sharpton, Frederica Wilson, and other “activist” sound bites into the unfairness of society.
So far, we know that he took a bag of Skittles to a gun fight.
Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story. Good stories sell newspapers, get eyeballs watching breathless reporters tell the story in between toilet paper commercials, and spawn sub-plots that in turn sell, sell, sell. It’s the American way.
Tragic? No, the story of Nancy and Bob Strait is tragic, not this.
Where was this father when this brat was out beating up volunteers? His brat had committed crimes, was thrown out of school for 10 days, but he decides to go out to dinner with his “fiancee” while his brat son headed for the Turf Club. There are so many unanswered questions in this story - but I strongly believe the truth will come out.
“The national press may have figured out this is not the race based crime portrayed.”
They KNEW it to start with but were hoping that the public wouldn’t figure it out. They are just am arm of hussein who will , if pressed, may try to pass this off as a Brawley, Duke Lacrosse manipulation by sharpton, jackson, and obasma.
>>The national press may have figured out this is not the race based crime portrayed. Florida press? Most are still beating the “racism” drum.
Looks like they may try and cut their losses a bit. Just posted (from Orlando Sentinel):
The press & media could do us all a favor if they would stop using the picture of when Trayvon was MUCH younger. How about using an age appropriate picture? I saw one with him wearing a wife beater shirt while smiling & showing his gold teeth. The gangsta look is quite a contrast from the pic they’re running with.
I suspect that Obama has told them to turn it down. This is SERIOUSLY hurting Obama’s re-election efforts. This is getting dangerously close to what happened in New York City, where you had black on Jewish rioting for 3 days under a black mayor. The result was that whites had enough and elected Rudy.
White majorities (either in the US or in any city) do NOT elect black leaders to start a race war, and white majorities punish those leaders when they (almost inevitably) start a race war.
Out having dinner, I think. Maybe dinner and a movie. Didn't seem concerned that Trayvon wasn't around whenever he (dad) returned home. Didn't stay up to see that he came in, etc.
I don't know enough the old man to have an opinion whether he's a decent sort, or not. But I know enough about Trayvon to conclude that he was an angry savage brute.
-- I strongly believe the truth will come out. --
The truth is out. I think what you are saying is that public perception will be corrected. I don't share your optimism. The story will be dropped, to prevent the public from becoming aware of how depraved the media is.
The city of Sanford has a site and they have provided a set contemporaneous reports of the Sanford Police Department documents and 911 calls that can be found:
Under Trayvon Martin Investigation Consolidated information with regard to this tragic incident.
The police reports include burglary and home invasion reports. Also a 21 page document regarding Neighborhood Watches.
Particularly frightening to me was the home invasion of a young woman. It looked like the gated community was under siege by the Hoodlum Community.
Report re victim named Bertalan,Oliva dated 8/3/2011.
Address is 1840 Retreat View Circle. The Bertalan report has a good number of pages but the Narrative Section summarizes action.
Of course such information is not presented by the MSMerde nor the Negro Community because it does not fit their political purpose.
not here in north east FL, they are calling out the race baiters etc
They are of course still showing those damn photo’s when the kid was 12 years old and not the updated photos of him acting all gangster, tattoos and where the hell did he get the money for the gold teeth when they were on food stamps.?
If Trayvon had gotten hold of Zimmerman’s gun and used it on him, the media would have been screaming that “as is so often the case, the gun escalated a fight from fisticuffs to murder, resulting in the death of the gunowner.”
Looks like the self-described “NO_LIMIT_NIGGA” was a drug dealer and burglar.
I’m sure that ABCNNBCBS will be reporting that shortly. Right after hell freezes over.
THOSE DAMN PHOTO’s of him being 12 years old is pure B/S, it makes idiots like this site http://community.allhiphop.com/discussion/460207/treyvon-martin-case-the-plot-thickens/p15
think it’s impossible for this want to be gangster to actually do anything bad and he was just a sweet boy eating candy.
Sent mail to FOX and hope everyone does and tell them that they need to sop using old photos and post the real updated photo’s of this want to be gangster.
Infact anyone on here get the updated one of Zimmerman in the suit and the updated one of gold tooth, tattoo , giving middle finger black young guy.
The Legend of Saint Skittles appears to be unraveling.
I agree, but I think that Obama's minions are doing this in the belief that it will provide enthusiasm to his disenchanted base. It will, but it will also highly motivate his opposition. The strategy did not work very well for LBJ and the Democrats in 1968. I have my doubts as to how much Zero learned about US History in school.
Was listening to BBC radio last night and its import was that Zimmerman had singlehandedly lynched Trayvon to a tree, then went down and burned his church to the ground, shot his “would have looked like me” father and then burned a cross on the lawn in front of every Negro’s house in a 10 mile square area.
When the media lies, people die. When politicians lie, people die. Hand in hand the media and politicians work to control the people by lies, or cause peoples’ deaths. What a country!
The minions see the house of cards falling. They will destroy the cities this summer.
The Obama legacy, besides the Obamacare debacle, will be burned and looted cities.
Charlotte will be destroyed by the human trash coming from all over
No, I mean the small facts of the case. I’m anxious to find out what kind of parents they are. My original instincts about the father were not good - very similar to my feelings of when Cindy Anthony showed up on the Today Show, preening for the cameras. He never shed a tear on his first interview.
You are right: the truth will change no one’s mind and the media is about to drop this story like a very large rock.
There have been no reports yet on his kids
Sully their sons reputation?
Truth does that when you your a golden-toothed, tatted up thug.
His cousin left a public message (twitter maybe) posthumously congratulating Trayvon the Thug (tm) for beating on Zimmerman. So some parts of the family are into savage behavior.
-- They might regret being led down this road by the media whore race baiters. --
It's interesting. When I worked in industry, we were constantly having to focus on who our market was. That was how, after all, we made money. The mainstream media apparently doesn't consider that. I mean, do they really think that anyone in Trayvon's neighborhood will actually buy a paper?
Meanwhile, they've lost us. You'd think the media owners would wise up after a while.
They’ll go for a civil trial where they only need a majority of the jury on their side. That’s where this is headed, I think.
Here's the father's FB page --- his likes include Jesus and The Bible....http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=3456187782&topic=7335#!/profile.php?id=100000129668130
Last night on the local news, they had substituted the "fresh faced kid" photo for a far more menacing shot, along with a more flattering picture of Zimmerman (dressed in a suit and tie).
Now that No_Limit_Ni**a and his nasty tweets have gone viral, they're trying to subtley distance themselves from their blatant manipulation attempts in slow stages.
If the truth comes out it is sure going to hurt the copyrighted T-shirt sales.
Momma wouldn’t like that.
New information??? I read every piece of this "new information" here on FR as soon as this story hit the national media. Maybe the CBS news readers should log in here once and a while.
Dad should have been home reading his bible when his brat kid was out causing trouble for the entire country. I don’t find bible-reading all that persuasive.
“I agree, but I think that Obama’s minions are doing this in the belief that it will provide enthusiasm to his disenchanted base.”
I was about to ‘educate’ you about the tradeoff involved with trying to fire up one’s base, while firing up twice as many people in the opposition camp...but you covered it in the next sentence.
They can't have a civil trial unless they get a criminal trial. FL provides immunity to a person who justifiably uses deadly force.
If the authorities in Florida decide to charge Zimmerman on the evidence in hand, they are going to further undermine the public goodwill toward authority.
“Once the New Black Panther party issued a kidnapping reward it had gone over the line.”
Totally. And as a honky, what I see is a bounty for this guy’s head, and NO ONE saying that the Panthers need to be arrested and disbanded, at least no one from government. It seems to me the bounty is criminal act and people should be rounded up.
...and if they are not rounded up and this continues, it will not make people (i.e., whites that might be willing to vote for him again) feel very positive about this country with another 4 years of Obama.
I had this punk pegged from the start, I don't know why others seem to be so gullible.
“The press & media could do us all a favor if they would stop using the picture of when Trayvon was MUCH younger.”
That doesn’t fit the MediaMatters/Gay Democrat Media narrative of the sweet/innocent black kid murdered by the thuggish White Guy with a Jewish last name.
Remember, in today’s media, THE TRUTH NO LONGER MATTERS, just the meme.
It is clear that you have decided what you want to about Martin Sr’s character....have a nice day.
“had this punk pegged from the start, I don’t know why others seem to be so gullible.”
I was listening to Pacifica Radio out of Chicago yesterday. The left, and blacks, are being told LIES 24/7 about this.
MSNBC HAS YET to run a pic of the older, thuggish TRayvon, pimping the “innocent kid” line.
“where the hell did he get the money for the gold teeth when they were on food stamps?”
Not gonna happen here in Florida. Our self defense laws specifically prohibit any civil suits by the perps or their family against the person legally defending himself. This is why they're trying to get criminal charges against Zimmerman. It is also why the left wants to scrap our Stand Your Ground law.
They might have spent the advance for the movie rights already.
