Trayvon Martin's texts messages and photos were released by George Zimmerman's attorneys Thursday. The messages and photos paint a troubling picture of the teen, as he chats with friends about drugs, guns and fighting
Slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin's cellphone texts and photos show him chatting with friends about marijuana, fighting and guns, new potential evidence shows.
Data from the 17-year-old's cell phone was released Thursday by lawyers for George Zimmerman, whose second-degree murder trial for killing Martin begins next month.
The texts and photos paint a troubling portrait of Martin's home and school life in the months before his death.
In one exchange, a friend texts that Martin is turning into "a hoodlum."
"Naw, I'm a gangsta," his reply read.
In another, he refers to a fistfight with another boy who "snitched" on him.
"I lost da 1st round but won da 2nd and 3rd," he writes, according to transcripts posted on the defense team's website.
"Im not done with fool he gone hav 2 see me again."
The texts are peppered with pot references, and there are photos of what appear to be marijuana plants.
A series of photos show him blowing smoke rings.
One friend calls him a "weedhead."
In one exchange, a friend jokes that he "better be high talking a lot dat s---"
"Naw I ain't smok 2day u just wanna act a ass," he replies.
Perhaps most troubling are the photos and references to getting a gun.
In an exchange on Feb. 18, 2012, eight days before his death, he asks a friend if he or she has a gun.
A text later that day asks Martin if he wants a "22 revolver. "

If Trayvon had a president, he’d look like Obama.
So.?! He was an activist in the social media and “the community”. He may have been having textual conversations about drug policy and the need for “rational gun control”. < /lib arguments >
Unfortunately all this attempt to show how evil Treyvon was is a smoke screen. Unless Jorge knew of bad propensities of Treyvon, and thus bolstered a need to use deadly force in self defense, then Treyvon’s background is irrelevant.
Yes, I know. It makes me sick also. But that is the law.
one thug-wanna-be is dead- they should be giving Zimmerman a medal not a kangaroo court.
Mr. Zimmerman, I just wanna eat my candy...boo hoo"
who paid for that gold-toothed ‘grill’?
Taxpayers? Stolen merchandise?
Clearly a fine young man who wanted nothing more than to grow up to be the Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins or the Mayo Clinic.
Bernie and Corey and their scheme team surrogates have been doing that for the last year.
Can I steal this for my Facebook wall?
Zimmerman should be awarded a portion of the taxpayer dollars he saved by eliminating this feral animal. No doubt Obamas favorite son would have ended up baby daddy to 5 welfare moms and in prison for at least half his life.
Does anybody know if he is still taking donations?
