A few facts I heard:
-Trayvon Martin is African American
-Trayvon Martin was shot dead in Florida.
-He had a bag of skittles for his brother and an ice tea for his mom
-He was shot by Neighborhood Watch for being a "suspicious character"
-He had been suspended from school three times (at least twice for illegal possession)
-He was suspended that day for possession
-He had grafitti paraphrenalia in a bag with him
-He assaulted the neighborhood watchman which gave the man the "right to use deadly force"

This is either a "hate crime", a case of mistaken judgement, or an event that could've been prevented.

Andy suicidal | 131 comments umm by report he didn't assault the neighborhood watch guy it's the other way around. There are police calls of him screaming for help. Weither or not he had the suspension and grafitti shit he wasn't doing anything at that time to result in him dead! Don't defend that racist "watch" bitch he deserves death!

I am NOT defending him.
There was NO REASON whatsoever to bring a gun into it.
He deserves to go to jail for what he did and I hope he does.

I was just stating what I heard about it overall. Whether or not the facts are 100% true is up to question, but I was merely stating what I heard.
I am wholly against the "Captain of the Neighborhood Watch". You don't just SHOOT someone for being in a gated community. Graffitti does NOT institute death. Neither does drugs! (if those facts are 100% true of course). He needs jail for murder (or at the very least MANSLAUGHTER!) because he killed an innocent human being.

All better. :D


♥ Innocent Lamb ~ Forever Reading ♥ - AKA Smarties (NotJustAnyOrdinaryGirl) | 59 comments Okay, so back to the conversation...

I heard about this!
One of my friends were commenting about it the other day. My question, what made the kid a suspicious character? The skittles? The ice tea? Seriously though...


message 20: by Dia (new)

Dia (FunSize5) | 12 comments He also had on a black hoodie. Maybe the man who shot him thought he was a hoodlum or something.

But I can't really form an opinion on the matter until we know what exactly went down that night. Trayvon is dead, so we'll never hear his side of the story, but hopefully Zimmerman and the witnesses will be honest when they testify in court. So I'm just gonna sit back and wait until the jury comes to a conclusion.

And most of us wore our hoods(including moi) and the principal gave us permission.

Why though?
Why are non-believers hated there so much?
I once read a comment that said that anyone who doesnt believe in god can get raped.
Thats just not right.

As i was sayign before i was rudely pulled off the computer. *cough sis cough little sis*

George zimmermman shot him in what was said to be a hate crime.
a lady heard the crying for help, and she claims that the crying stopped after the gun was fired.

Trayvon Martins girfriend was talkign to him seconds before he died.

Hundreds rallied, carrying skittles, hoods, iced tea and pictures of him last week.

A guy named Joe Oliver has been claimign he was Zimmermmans" "Close friend." but he didn't know that Zimmerman has been taking anger management classes.

Karina (2187) Did you guys hear about the gun range targets?


message 35: by Richard (new)

Richard (DDayTheMormon) Here are my comments about the whole thing... at first I thought wow what a racists prick but now I'm thinking the parents are; GOLD DIGGERS!


message 36: by Karina (new)

Karina (2187) Why?


message 37: by Richard (new)

Richard (DDayTheMormon) Because yeah the man was a racists and he did shoot a unarmed child. But to get an entire nation against one man is wrong. But even now that he has been convicted THEY STILL WON'T SHUT UP!!


message 38: by Karina (new)

Karina (2187) I heard this morning that he is already free? maybe the person that told me was wrong though.


message 39: by Richard (new)

Richard (DDayTheMormon) I heard he was convicted of manslaughter.


message 40: by Karina (new)

Karina (2187) I honestly don't know and I'm not picking sides

Manslaughter: Accidental shooting pretty much...
I don't know whether to believe it or not.
Those targets though are pretty BS to me. I don't think they should've been made. PERIOD! The person who made them even said they were supposed to be Trayvon.


message 42: by Richard (new)

Richard (DDayTheMormon) I usually don't care either way because its always turned into some racist bullshit but with these parents; all they want is the fame not justice.
