The REAL real Trayvon Martin
Photos some people don't want you to see
Recently, I had several people post on my blog about photos of Trayvon Martin showing an older teen who was more “thuggish”. So, being who I am, I went on a search for those photos and the story they told and found out that bloggers and Zimmerman supporters “cherry-picked” images from those accounts to show a darker side of Trayvon. However, a look at all the images shows a young man who was teenager. The pictures show him excited about his prom, fishing with his dad, in a car, and preparing to inspect an airplane engine. I chose to post 11 here.
I also found out that a hacker had broken into Trayvon’s accounts and found out that he was just a normal kid. His Gmail account was filled with information on college and his Facebook account had more of cherubic images that Zimmerman supporters hate. Yes, he did have a tattoo of his mother’s name. He did flip off the camera in one picture and he did try on a grill. He even lied about his age.
Conservatives and Zimmerman supporter’s say they want the truth, then my question is why? Why choose from only the “negative” images—notice the quotes. I’ve posted most of the pictures that I could find here.
All we want is for Zimmerman to be arrested and be judged by a jury of his peers for the death of a young man. Trayvon did not have to die on February 26. George Zimmerman needs to stand trial for causing Trayvon’s death. However, let’s stop trying to smear this young man’s name. His pictures show that he was a normal kid.
