Skip to comments.7-Eleven video of Trayvon Martin released
Posted on 05/18/2012 11:29:33 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
SANFORD, FL (CNN) Trayvon Martin walked into a 7-Eleven in Sanford, Florida, grabbing a bag of Skittles and a can of AriZona iced tea. The hood from his dark gray sweatshirt over his head, he walked up to the counter, reached deep into his pants' pockets, paid the clerk, then walked out.
This seemingly mundane act - captured on a surveillance video - would be the last image the 17-year-old's loved ones would have of him alive.
While questions still remain, what happened next to Martin on the night of Feb. 26 became clearer on Thursday with the release of scores of pages of investigative and medical examiner's reports, in addition to new images of Martin's shooter and the 7-Eleven video.
Martin didn't live in Sanford, a central Florida city of about 53,000 people. Yet by that winter night, he'd been there for seven days, after being suspended for the third time from Dr. Michael M. Krop High School in Miami - in this instance, for 10 days after drug residue was found in his backpack, according to records obtained by the Miami Herald.

It’s reported elsewhere he had been smoking pot. These are rather moderate munchies for that. Pizza, maaaaan! Not Skittles.
The new Metrosexual thug!
Would you like to guess the flavor of the iced tea?
Looks like he didn’t know how to get out of the place, and it looked like he bent down and put something in his sock.
Did I miss it or is there no mention of what time this takes place?
I suspect that there is a time lapse from the 7-11 to the phone call from Zimmerman. The time of this tape would help greatly.
Pretty big guy. If he were coming at me on a dark street, I’d be glad I had a gun on me.
"OK. We don't need you to do that," the dispatcher responded.
But Zimmerman followed him anyway.
This is not a substantiated fact, it is speculation. The news is still schilling for a court lynching.
“...the 17-year-old’s loved ones...”
Would that be the “loved ones” that hadn’t seen him in days or weeks?
It was a rather warm evening in Florida and Trayvon is wearing a hoodie which is very odd and suspicious. In the store, we only see a snippet of video and cannot see if Trayvon may have stolen other things from the store and the Skittles were just for appearance.
Sure didn’t look like a little kid to me, and another witness claimed he was usint mixed martial arts hits while on Zimmerman. Anybody know if he had any training in martial arts?
LOL!!! He had to reach deep because his pants were halfway down his A$$ - that's the reason for the "Hoody" is to extend down to cover what his pants should be covering!!! Ignorant reporter, writing like they'd never seen an urban "yute" before...
Strange - he did stop to bend down and do something to his sock or shoe or the bottom of his pants, and then he seemed about to go back into the store or to turn around. I notice that the clerk was watching him and was actually following him (gasp!), and also stayed on the phone for the entire time the kid was in the store. So obviously the clerk wasn’t comfortable with his behavior.
Actually, it was unseasonably cold that night. In the 50’s and rainy.
That’s why George Zimmerman was heard saying “it’s f-ing cold” on the 911 tape. Of course, the media told us he said “f-ing coons”.
Are you saying that Trayvon wearing a hoodie was not suspicious?
That won’t come out until trial, if true.
There’s no way the media wouldn’t keep a lid on that bit of info.
Saint Skittles, patron saint of hoodies.
I highly doubt he was trained. I think they just mean he was on top of him dropping punches.
Little Trayvon is kinda tall for TWELVE Years old......................
According to the autopsy, Trayvon was heavily intoxicated with THC and from what I have read and seen in a movie, people under the influence of PCP most often times commit extremely violent acts, unable to control their impulses in a violent rage.
Law enforcement officials fear dealing with suspects who are intoxicated with PCP.
He wasn’t on PCP. It was THC a ingredient in marijuana.
So little Travon actually bought iced tea and Skittles, not drugs. OK
I heard he was huffing jenkem...
“Sure didnt look like a little kid to me”
I cracked up when I saw the MSNBC video of Trayvon in the 7/11 store, big tall guy towering over the cashier, and after the video MSNBC commentators discussed it while it had the same (now universal icon) backdrop pic of little TM in his cute white hoody.
Even their own visuals give the lie to the words out of their mouths.
I'm saying it was cold, and therefore, reasonable to be wearing a hoodie.
But I'm of the general opinion that people walking around with hoods covering their heads are suspicious. People should show their face in an open society.
Regarding this case, I've yet to conclude that Trayvon was doing anything wrong prior to the fight with Zimmerman. We simply don't know, and we don't know who started the fight. But at some point there was a fight and Zimmerman was getting his butt kicked, so he used his weapon. I believe that it was in self-defense.
If it turns out that Zimmerman was being an overzealous neighborhood watchman, I still don't think that he should be charged with murder. I'm pretty sure he'll be acquitted, at which point we can expect there to be social unrest. The media and the Florida prosecutor have really done a bad thing here.
Now if one of my children was suspended from school (they can't because they are HOMESCHOOLED). He wouldn't be 200+ miles from home. Matter of fact, they wouldn't be at the 7-11 at 11:00 am let alone at night.
Drug residue in his backpack?? George Zimmerman must have gone down to Miami and planted it.../s
In addition, the autopsy showed THC in his system. Where was Trayvon smoking dope? At his father’s shack-up’s house?
Both George and Trayvon had cell phones that night, which would leave a ping record of which cells they were in at what time and for how long. Cell phone repeaters use GPS signals to get atomic clock accuracy.
Weed stays in your system for up to 4 weeks.
It was reported some time back that the video from the 7-11 was between 6 and 6:30 p.m.—so Trayvon either took his time on the way back to his neighborhood, or had been wandering around looking into the houses for a while before Zimmerman first saw him. It’s interesting that they don’t report the time of the tape in the latest reports.
One of my favorite rants...the liberal controlled media...television...newspapers... magazines...radio...all continue to show 12 year old Trayvon...NOT 17 year old Trayvon...they continue to show the 5 year old picture BECAUSE it helps to cement in your mind the little, cute, hoodie wearing youngster who was stalked by this monster.
In reality.."little Trayvon"...at the time of his death...stood almost 6'2" tall...weighed 175 muscular pounds...had numerous run ins with authorities (both at school and local police)...had been stopped and almost arrested two days before his death for...smacking a bus driver in the face...because the driver refused to let him ride for free...he was released because the driver was told not to press charges by the bus company and to continue on his route.
When "little Trayvon" was suspended at school...it was not only because he tried to bring a little marijuana in with him...he was in possession of wedding rings and other jewelry...watches etc. that he said he "found" along with a large screwdriver...while on the way to school that day...the jewelry was turned over to the Police by the school.
I am not trying to say this was a good shooting...I am not trying to say this kid deserved to die...I am saying...the media in the USA is controlled by liberals who twist and distort what you see and hear in order for you to see things their way.
Not a single paper has printed RECENT photos of this kid...because...it would not keep your interest in this case... Not a single paper will admit that this kid was a marijuana dealer...his friends on facebook all say he had the "best plants"...not a single paper will show you any of his recent photos where he shows off a mouthful of gold teeth....all of his tattoos...not a single paper will tell the news like it really is....and NOT how they want you to think it is... President King Obama...looked at the FIVE year old photo the media chose to show the Nation...and said..."If I had a son...he would look like Trayvon"
So from that comment...should I assume you did not bother to look for the facts in this shooting..or should I assume you want a son who is a 17 year old drug dealing, gold teeth wearing thug whose name on one of his facebook profiles was "wild nigga"...who 'finds" jewelry and burglary tools on the way to school ?
The kid was clearly a thug, and I agree with the email you received. I was only pointing out that if THC is in your system, it doesn’t mean you smoked that night...that was all.
Trayvon Martin appears to be pretty high on something. His motor motions, body movements were not normal. He appears to be floating is space, adrift at sea. Be interesting when that clerk that served him gets on the stand in court. This boy, Obama’s son, was no angel.
One of the tapes it stamped 6:24.
I did not say that Trayvon was high on PCP.
I just flew home from Northwest Arkansas Monday. Was standing in line to get on the plane in a covered terminal and was hot and sweating. The line was moving slow so I looked around some. About 3 people behind me was one of Obama’s sons with a hoodie sweatshirt pulled up over his head.
I just shook my head and turned back around.
I have to disagree you. I’m glad the little thug is dead. All the Traydmark Martin’s of the world are imminent threats to my wife my children and my family. George Zimmerman did the law-abiding community a favor. Civilization thanks him!
He does look very confused. Getting stoned a lot produces paranoia (I can attest to this after having seen some heavy-using highschool friends really flip out) and Martin seems very uneasy and nervous.
No, before the EVIL George murdered him, George FORCED Trayvon to smoke dope. /s
