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.

“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.
“They might regret being led down this road by the media whore race baiters.”
Just another useful idiot for “THE CAUSE!”.
It’s turning because those cretins Jackson, Sharpton and Farrakhan thought they were picking on a Jew.
But he’s Hispanic, and if Hispanics decide to rally behind Zimmerman and take on the blacks the Democrat Party is gonna be
SCROOOOOD SCROOOOOD SCROOOOOOOOD SCROOOOD SCROOOOOOOOOOOOOD!
Ergo, the lamestream media will not let it happen.
In the end, it was the Black Media THUG CULTURE, with the “DON DIS ME OR I KEEL YOU!” attitude of the inner-city, that killed Trayvon.
And the media will NEVER admit this, it’s too politically incorrect.
The jails and the cemetaries are full of Trayvons.
“Its turning because those cretins Jackson, Sharpton and Farrakhan thought they were picking on a Jew.”
THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH
“A jury found him not guilty of all charges except an illegal firearms possession count...” If I were Papa and Mama here, I wouldn't bang the drum too loudly...
Why not. The judgement against Goetz in civil court was in the hundreds of millions. The family hit the jackpot and any money Goetz earns goes to the family.
Just one last thing: I was one of the first on this site to predict how this would turn out - based on my own experiences with hoodies, black and latino teenagers and having to put up with Sharpton for 20 years before he became nationally infamous. I was flamed in the beginning. And, of course, the story broke my way. So I won’t be surprised to find out Dad and Mom are not so hot either. Mom has already turned out to be a bit of a gold digger.
Seriously, you too have a good day.
“...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 rounded up.”
I, too, have noticed that the brat’s defenders have all sought the high ground, lol. As John Gambling said this morning, I always knew there was more to this story than was being reported.
I hate to sound like Woody Allen but listening to Sharpton this morning he kept saying: “D’jew, d’jew know...” before I realized he was saying “Did you, did you know?”
