Trayvon Martin's Parents Defend Son amid Allegations He Attacked Zimmerman
Fox News Latino ^ | March 27, 2012

Posted on 03/27/2012 6:05:16 AM PDT by Zakeet

Trayvon Martin's parents have suddenly found themselves on the defensive as new reports portray their slain Florida teenage son as the aggressor in a case that has garnered national attention.

The 17-year-old's parents are blaming police for leaking information about their son being suspended from school for marijuana and details about the fight he had with volunteer neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.

Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, and family attorneys said Monday that it was part of an effort to demonize her son who was shot and killed last month by George Zimmerman, who is half Peruvian. Zimmerman, 28, said he acted in self-defense and he has not been arrested.

Despite the news of Martin's possible actions the night of the shooting [i.e. attacking Zimmerman], rallies demanding the arrest of the 28-year-old Zimmerman spread from Florida to Indiana.

Thousands rallied Monday on the steps of the Georgia state Capitol. The crowd chanted "I am Trayvon!" and "Arrest Zimmerman now!" The protest ended with the crowd linking hands and singing, "We Shall Overcome."

Students from Morehouse College, Spelman College and Clark Atlanta University encouraged their fellow students to talk to their lawmakers about gun laws. Students wore hoodies reading, "I am Trayvon Martin" and lofted signs reading, "Don't shoot!" and "I could be next."

"We're humans, and even more so, we're American citizens, and we have the expectation that justice will be delivered," said Ronnie Mosley, 20, a student at Morehouse who helped organize the rally.

Lynching & Ramping up the War on White People... these shirts have begun appearing on Florida streets.

cracker tee

Now, imagine if N-word tees appeared on white folks whenever the blacks committed an atrocity... say OJ, or even the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

>> blaming police for leaking information

WTF? Releasing facts about a case that’s 24/7 on the news cycle, and threatening to cause race riots, is “leaking information”?

Negative Press will eat into her income opportunity, since she has rushed to trademark his name and thus profit from selling these T shirts and other items.

They are having a rally in Omaha, NE at 10 a.m. this morning. I guess there are some people who do not have to be at work at that time.

No one has to demonize her son, but this incident does not merit being treated as an “attack on blacks”.

When this story first started, the parents already were saying he was shot only because he was black.

I feel sorry for Trayvon’s parents for letting themselves be USED by the media and race pimps. They should stay home and grieve, not sell T-shirts. We realize that the parents are usually the last to know, and often in denial.

Is this what saint Trayvon would tell his parents?

“Mom, I'm going out to buy pot, see ya”

“Mom, I'm going out to sell pot, see ya”

“Dad, I'm going out to steal jewelry, oh, I borrowed your screwdriver, see ya”

“Mom, I'm going out to hang with my gangsta homies, see ya”

“Mom, I'm going out to get some tats, see ya”

“Mom, I'm going out to buy skittles, while I'm out I'm gonna smoke a joint, see ya”

“Mom, I'm going out to beat to death a White Hispanic, see ya”

So, let's see:

1. Trayvon had been suspended from school multiple times for truancy, tardiness, possession of a burglary tool (and several pieces of women's jewelry), graffitti, and possession of marijuana.

2. Travyon sports gang tattoos, has a gold grille, associates with known gang members, and has a social media screen name NO_LIMIT_NIGGA.

3. Trayvon was serving his latest suspension at the house of his father's fiance. He supposedly had been “grounded,” but his father and fiance left him alone at the residence, at night.

4. Trayvon spotted the neighborhood watch volunteer observing him, and told his girlfriend over the cel phone that he was going to confront the volunteer.

5. Trayvon came up from behind the volunteer as the volunteer was retreating to his vehicle.

6. Trayvon accosted the volunteer with, “You got a problem with me!?” or words to that effect.

7. After the volunteer replied, “No” Trayvon punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground.

8. The volunteer and multiple witnesses say that Trayvon jumped on top of the volunteer and beat him savagely, breaking his nose, bruising his lip, and causing multiple cuts on the back of his head.

9. Multiple witnesses say the volunteer cried for help as Trayvon was slamming his head against the pavement.

10. The volunteer shot Trayvon with a weapon he legally was authorized to carry in order to save his own life.

11. Trayvon’s mother has hired a lawyer to trademark “Justice for Trayvon” and “I am Trayvon.”

Now, someone tell me why that mudering, “pussy-a$$ cracker” George Zimmerman is not in jail or swinging from a tree?

In that dime sized gray spot that passes for their brains, Zimmerman is white name and thusly he is THE white man.

If had been Guzman or Hernandez or some such, well he might be a latino. But it seems even the latino community is not touching this one...

What is a crying shame is that Zimmerman will have to change his name and identity to continue to live in this nation. That is of course all predicated upon whether the Black Panther kill teams don’t find him first.

Lets hope and pray they don’t engage in the Terminator methodology and just try to terminate every George Zimmerman in the phone book...

Trayvon Martin was suspended from school for having a ‘burglary tool’ and women’s jewellery in his backpack

Trayvon Martin was allegedly suspended from school when security officers found what they described as a ‘burglary tool’ and women’s jewellery in his backpack.
But the revelation in a school report obtained by the Miami Herald has been condemned by Trayvon’s family as part of a campaign to demonise their son by supporters of George Zimmerman. Trayvon’s mother said: ‘They killed my son and now they’re trying to kill his reputation’.

“Students wore hoodies reading, “I am Trayvon Martin” “

Does anyone see the similarity between this and the BREITBART signs?

The DEMS have never had an original thought in their lives.

That is what tells me this is all being managed/funded/controlled by the DNC and MEDIA. It is a response to the I AM BREITBART signs and t-shirts.

We picked an outstanding journalist to ‘honor’, they picked a gangbanger in training who was trying to establish his pissing territory in a new neighborhood.

Defend? Not one outlet of the Rancid Media has shown a picture of Martin as an adult. All we see is the picture of him as a ten-year-old Cub Scout.

Pitiful. We have to get domestic US news from the Brits because the US Rancid Media won’t tell us the truth.

-- No one has to demonize her son ... --

No, but it is 100% appropriate to demonize his behavior. She's the one who wants to make his death a national issue, so let's look into how his death was precipitated.

Defending Trayvon's behavior, and demonizing the use of self defense, well, there are plenty of people who do so. I'm happy to be finding out who those people are, because I will call them out as the depraved savages that they are.

Because the NBP members are still negotiating with the Media and DNC handlers about the 'price'.

This was discussed and 'sourced' yesterday on the threads.

It is true that she applied to the patent office for trademarks rights on those two phrases.

"lofted signs reading, "Don't shoot!" and "I could be next." "

Be thankful, at least it's in English.

Many times one has to refer to PRAVDA to get the truth.

Maybe she can sell the t-shirts to the same people that Obama sold the CHICAGO OLYMPICS shirts to.

yeah, the wife had CNN in on the bedroom this morning.

CNN was going ape over the fact that this information was “LEAKED”...

Solely-a-dud, honey, if the town of Sanford posts the initial police report on its public website...it’s not LEAKED.

Just trying to discredit the facts...as usual...

His dad reported him missing the next day. The police showed him a pic of Trayvon from the shooting. I don’t know where the 3 day reports came from unless they are regarding how long the coroner held the body.
