I don't care what was on his phone. The only relevant question is: what was he carrying when Zimmerman attacked and murdered him?
We know he was not carrying drugs. We know he was not carrying a firearm. That makes him the defenceless victim of a violent crime.
This is ridiculous. Many teens like pictures of guns because they think it's "cool", how many movies today don't have guns in them?
The point is, it shows more of Martin's true character, which is exactly why prosecutors didn't want it getting out. I'm quite sure if it were a pocket bible and pictures of Jesus, it would have been released.
Try and attack me or break into my home and I'll be remembering what Zimmerman did for sure. We have SYG law in my state also.

Zimmerman will never have a fair trial. The media, especially MSNBC have already convicted him. The local LEOs sure as hell don't want to deal with the rioting in the black communities that would surely erupt in the event of an acquittal.
No, I am not racist.
If Zimmerman is acquitted every single NAACP mouthpiece will be calling on their brothers to "claim" justice for Trayvon.
The local DA does not want to lose this case based on Zimmerman's guilt or innocence, they know if they lose there will be hell to pay.

What's the "image" you are talking about?
Wearing baggy clothes and being black? Or liking guns/marijuana at the same time? (which Zimmerman did not even know at the time)
This is racial profiling and I have to disagree with your logic. If he had been a nerdy kid with glasses but had the same pictures on his phone Zimmerman probably would not have even followed him.
Don't let previous events influence your emotions on the judgment of this incident, Trayvon had nothing to do with the baby that was shot. Not everyone who likes guns/marijuana will end up becoming a thug.edit on 30-5-2013 by peashooter because: (no reason given)

Wow! That is some kind of synopsis.
The kid was not armed, had no dope on him, and no priors.
Here is my impression of this controversy: The media has used it to...once again divide the masses. There are so many people emotionally invested in this case. You have your "hate 'n-word's" crowd; mostly the angry right. And then you have everyone else. People that don't like the reported story of how the incident went down. Folks questioning if Trayvon was armed, was he loaded out of his mind, or was he just a kid being stalked by some psychopath.
It makes me sick to my stomach the level of prejudice that still exists in this country.
Everything from the evils to price, from the guns to mic
I'm livin' my life runnin' through hell with no wife
It's a sin, but I tell my lost soul to win
Go to bed and die, then wake up breathin' again
Cuz I'm all in even though # ain't right
I wake up, sweating my life every night
Tell me, is you the devil that gon' get me?
Or is God don't feel like bein' bothered with?
So hard to hit me, but this life I sacrifice
# chrome lines in the dark, my daughter gon' see the light
If I die young it's cuz a nigga too high strung
Got a scary love for guns but too much weed in my lungs
Still niggaz screamin' Ja's the one
Chosen like God's only begotten son
It's my life
Where are all the people dressing in nice casual wear for the old lady...

I'll admit it I also have pictures of weed and guns on my phone, without knowing me personally you would have never even guessed.
I don't know many people who have pictures of guns that don't own or want one already. I also don't know anyone who has pictures of weed that wouldn't be a smoker, maybe you're just special.
It's plain to see he gets high, likely has or has had a gun and shows an interest in the "thug life". I have no proof you think Zimmerman is guilty, but it's not hard to put 2 and 2 together for both these points.
The point is, it shows more of Martin's true character, which is exactly why prosecutors didn't want it getting out. I'm quite sure if it were a pocket bible and pictures of Jesus, it would have been released.edit on 30-5-2013 by Paschar0 because: (no reason given)
