Thank-you for posting that, hopefully it knocks off some of the nonsense. I really hope some actual facts come out soon. The article put out by the Miami Herald today, that claims they obtained a report from Miami-Dade School Police which states that Martin had been suspended from school for graffiti and when his bag was searched for the marker, the officer found women's jewelry and a screw-driver, is bothering me a lot
I was discussing this with a friend and it just seems off...his parent's were never told about this and a screwdriver on school grounds would be considered a weapon which is an automatic expulsion. Also how could those records be released without parental consent? Worst of all it has nothing to do with the case, it justifies nothing...I feel like that police department is extremely corrupt and they're deflecting.
You're really on top of info in this tragedy, what do you think?

As was demonstrated by your broad stroked assessment of Whites, this is certainly true in your case.
I must admit that your posts have proven one thing to me:
The color of one's skin means far more to you, than it ever has to me.
You certainly wouldn't qualify as one of my friends. I don't associate with racists, regardless of their color.

How about getting the FACTS right before rushing in to defend Zimmerman? In the 911 call Zimmerman refers to Martin as a black male TWICE.
Originally posted by BlackmarketeerIt sounds like Zimmerman says under his breath, ‘F-ing coons’ at 2:22]
Originally posted by BlackmarketeerNo, the evidence shows Zimmerman LEFT HIS CAR to foot pursue Martin. Martin's girlfriend was on the phone in which she states he was freaking out over some guy staring at him, then following him, she told him to run. In Zimmerman's 911 call he states that Martin started to run away from him. THAT is proof Martin WAS NOT seeking a confrontation.
Originally posted by BlackmarketeerThere are also NOT "two witnesses" that Martin attacked Zimmerman, only one mystery, unidentified witness by the name of John who claims that, but his version doesn't match two other witnesses who have come forward, Mary Cutcher and her roommate who state it was Zimmerman on top of Martin and Martin was face down. The shooting took place in the alley behind the row of homes where Martin ran, near Mary Cutcher's home. When Zimmerman asked Mary Cutcher to call 911 for him, where was this mystery witness John?
That makes this self defense.
Originally posted by BlackmarketeerIf anyone had a right to 'self-defense', it was Trayvon Martin. He was being chased down in the rain by some weirdo nutbag with a gun. Did he not ALSO have a right to 'stand his ground'?
Originally posted by BlackmarketeerDoes this mean that I can grab a gun, go confront anyone I want in the street even if I have to chase them down, and then slay them with a bullet point blank to the chest if they slap or punch me? Then claim that I was only 'defending myself'?

Fine, report the facts...don't make up lies. There are lies and photos that aren't even of Trayvon Martin being published to paint a more stereotypical/thuggish version of him. A lot of these photos and lies are being generated on sites such as Stormfront. Aren't you disturbed by that?
