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.

Stupid teenager who, years from now, would have looked back and laughed about his stupidity. I’ve seen far worse kids than him turn out to be prosperous. 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.

From the Article: 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.

The article, which should be taken down, is a typical MSM fluff piece that portrays an angelic Black victim who can do no wrong and was therefore murdered by a white monster. Evidence contradicting their conclusion, like the photo and tweet shown above, must therefore be ignored lest the ignorant public get a wrong impression.

I was just pointing out the realities of the internet that people routinely say things totally out of character on the internet. That, by itself, is often meaningless.

I'm not sure I would agree with "routinely" but yes certainly people make mistakes and wish they could take back some things they post. I encourage you to thumb thru Trayvon's tweets and reasses what is or is not out of character for him.

Weed use and profanity have become somewhat normal for today's teens. The jewelry is what mostly what brings up a big questions, yet was never proven to be stolen. But related to the incident involving the shooting, would you not say that Zimmerman's assault of a police officer, his domestic violence history and his assault of an intoxicated woman at a party he was supposedly performing security for is more relevant than a kid playing pretend thug on a social networking site?

No, because I maintain 90 percent of people who post on the internet use their internet personality and not their real personality.

Internet postings are not really meant to be taken seriously, so you really cannot take it as reflecting reality.

"six GOLD caps? And who paid for those gold caps and who signed for the work to be performed on a minor?"

Cheap dental jewelry — Grillz. Probably of the kind you can buy for $19.95.

Do you know why Zimmerman had a picture for the media to put up earl on? Because Zimmerman has a MUG SHOT. That means that he has been arrested. Martin has no mug shot because he has never been arrested and has no record, juvenile or otherwise. He got in trouble in school and played imaginary thug on facebook.

A person who formely imployed Zimmerman (under the table) to provide security said that he had to be fired for his tendency to loose control citing an instance where he body slammed an intoxicated woman causing her to twist her ankle.

Martin has no recorded history of violence that we know of today. No juvenile record. He had some cheap clip on grillz that he wore to take Facebook pics but didn’t wear in general. He got into non violent trouble in school and his father was dealing with it. You have social network posts that are probably play acting fantasy (something that has been show to be common with teenagers today), etc.

Newbie Troll Alert

When you accept drug use, possessing burglar tools and stolen women's jewelry and the inability to accept any verbal social morays as "normal" ... and any rumor about Zimmerman as fact, then you have no place here.

Sorry, but you are obviously a far-left liberal troll.... and not a very good one at that.

He is constantly vulgar when tweeting to women, and insults their appearance, calls them whores, discusses their genitalia, etc. It is sickening misogyny. Not a "typical teenager".

I read some of those tweets. It was so disgusting I couldn’t believe it was coming from a 17 year old. It turned my stomach. This kid was the wrong stuff.

Spin control. Now the Herald is telling people what to think. Real reporting would of just involved linking the twitter history and letting the readers decide. The are not fooling anyone.

“I think that his chances of living a long life were pretty normal. I believe that Zimmerman was destined for such an encounter.”

And who paid for those gold caps

Maybe he took his troubles down to Madame Ruth?
