What Trayvon Martinís tweets say about him
Miami Herald ^ | 4.08.2012 | Deborah Acosta

Posted on 04/08/2012 4:59:03 PM PDT by ironman

A review of the account, which has since been taken down, portrays a typical teenager with a sense of humor and a preoccupation with girls. He is sometimes vulgar when discussing sex, and he often quotes explicit song lyrics.

At times it’s difficult to discern what’s a song lyric and what’s not. How many of Trayvon’s tweets can be taken as literal is up for grabs.

There are certain things that can be gleaned about Trayvon from his tweets:

He loved the films Friday, starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, and Next Friday, both of which poke fun at street culture. He posted YouTube clips from the films.

You have no evidence that he sucker punched Zimmerman.

Don't you just hate it when your face bashes into someone's fist and the back of your head attacks innocent sidewalks?

His first name is Corey.
It could also be short, I suppose, for “see”.

In context, it would make sense for it to be, See Murder, but nothing is confirmed, no.

He has an entry in Wikipedia, but there is no explanation for the name.

I wonder if his obvious embracement of the drug culture changed him from the happy-go-lucky kid to the sullen, easy to lose ones temper gang banger. Perhaps that change of character caused him to take a swing at someone. That may be the “habit’ that started him on the downward skid and ultimately did him in. I am just speculating here.

Dare I ask what the C in C-Murder stands for?

Don't know, unless it's a reference to his first name, Corey.

Here's what IfasehunReincarnated opined seven years ago today:

I read he claims his rap name was never supposed to infer that he was a murderer or someone willing to murder. that is meant "I SEE Murders"..lol I aint buying that. I don't know if he is guilty, but at some point we have to realize we cant go around saying "we real. we talk about it, cause we about it" then when we get in trouble wonder why people think our nicknames aren't a reflection of what crimes we are capable of..

Take for example, I think Beanie Sigel is one of the best lyricists of the last 10 years. He is fighting an appeal on attempted murder charges. He says "they listen to my music and think I am guilty automatically." Hmm. Why wouldnt they? You keep telling us that you aint rapping, you telling us about your life. You keep saying you dont play and you drop hammers on your enemies. You keep telling us that you real, you arent a studio gangster. Dame keeps saying he loves you so much cause you are the realest rapper he knows. He says you talk it, then you walked it. If thats the case, Beanie don' killed a number of people in his lifetime, cause he talks it quite a bit. Now he wonders why racists have found him an easy target?

Fortunately, Trayvon fell nine millimeters short of filling his hero's shoes.

She never defined “bigger” i.e. height or weight. Her testimony is not first rate as her story changed a bit over each interview. And it was dark, which she admitted prevented her from getting a clear view of a face, etc.

Exactly.

We all can’t be glum about things. :)

And I read that he claimed to have been given the jewelry by a friend. None of the jewelry was matched to any report stolen.

Did the friend back his story? Why is this friend giving him jewelry? What was the quid pro quo?

No report doesn't mean it wasn't stolen, just that the police couldn't match it to a crime report.

So, Trayvon was a “film” buff? I’m wondering if he ever made it to the Cannes “film” festival? I supposed had he been driving a car he would have been a “motorist”, out for a “jaunt” with his homies.

I C-NoParenting. If he’d been grounded for life like I’d have done the first time he was suspended he wouldn’t have been out that night.

The witness said that the bigger man walked toward her after the shot.

I say that the bigger man walked toward you and gave you the ZOT.

The 17-year-old high school junior known as “Slimm” tweeted thousands of times over a period of months. His last 140-character message came just two days before he was gunned down in a gated townhouse community in Sanford.

The author appears to be just a little biased/sarc

Martin had been suspended for tardiness, but that is not what he was last suspended for. I can easily see the confusion.

Remember the 'tardiness' statement apparently came from Martin's parents, did it not? His parents also said the suspension for possession of drug-related paraphernalia came because he was in an unauthorized area. I'm not denying tardiness was the reason for a prior suspension, but I'd like to get that information from an original source, not a spokesperson for Martin.

Both sides in this case are fluffing the information they are presenting, wouldn't you agree?

I refuse to analyze the inanity of a 17 year old (12YO media visaged), gold-grilled, tatted, hoodied ‘yout’, wizened comments. This is pure insanity. We all know this culture.

That, by itself, is often meaningless.

When the author of the article cherry picks tweets to show im as just a normal teenager - it isn't meaningless at all to bring up his tweets which may counter the author's premise.
