On October 29th, a Florida judge declined to issue a gag order in the Trayvon Martin shooting case, much to the chagrin of Angela Corey and crew, the special prosecutors appointed to handle this charade. Corey’s office had requested that the order be issued so the media and the defense would be unable to tell the truth about what happened on that rainy Florida night nearly a year ago and the circus that followed.
This is the second blow to the prosecution in as many weeks. On October 19th, a judge ordered that Martin’s school records must be handed over to George Zimmerman’s defense team. Those records will show that Trayvon Martin was a troubled young man who sought out trouble. A self-styled gang-banger, Martin had a reputation for being violent. He was in Florida because he had once again been suspended from school, this time for beating his bus driver. The school had reported that Martin had been found with burglary tools and drugs in his backpack…more than once.
On the night Martin attacked Zimmerman, forcing Zimmerman to use deadly force, Martin wasn’t just strolling through the neighborhood on his way back from an innocent trip to the convenience store. He was in fact purchasing the ingredients to make a popular inner-city drug called Purple Drank or Lean. The items he had in his possession on that night were needed to make the drug. It’s made by mixing Robitussin or other strong cough medicine with Arizona tea and Skittles. Martin had bought the tea and candy at the convenience store before he attacked Zimmerman.
Trayvon Martin’s race-baiting attorneys can play the race card all they like, but it won’t do them any good. This had nothing to do with race, at least not on George Zimmerman’s part, and there is no doubt that he is the real victim here. Martin’s parents and attorneys don’t want the public to know just how mean and viscious he was. It soothes their broken hearts to believe that he was an angelic young man who loved horses and sports. Nothing could be further from the truth, and Trayvon Martin’s parents and their shady attorneys want to be as far away from the truth as they can get. Namely, that their kid was nothing more than a violent thug who got what he had coming to him, and it’s their fault.
