Trayvon made choices that led him to not be in school. He made a choice to assault someone. He got shot assaulting someone.So smoking weed and taking stupid pics makes someone a thug now? Or is that only when an Africa American kid smokes weed? Many, many white kids his age also smoke weed. Funny how you push the narrative that Trayvon is a thug by posting pictures, but never push that same narrative by posting Zimmerman's mugshots and criminal record. Shows your bias... You and the mod seem to be going out of your way to push a narrative while COMPLETELY ignoring Zimmerman's "thuglife." It's like Fox News vs MSNBC on here... People can't be objective.
The media on both sides politicised the entire event and turned it into a them vs us and black vs white (yes I know he's Hispanic) issue. People only want to see what they want to see...
Should that person have been following him? Maybe not, but he was on the phone with a 911 operator trying to do the right thing. Most importantly, he was leaving the area and Trayvon attacked him. The shooting was justified for many reasons.
Important facts to note about Trayvon Martin:
- Good kids don't get suspended multiple times for drug offenses. Good kids get scared straight after being caught the first time. That's my experience in working in a high school.
- Another important fact is that Trayvon's mother moved him to another school to try and get him on a new and better path. Something that parents of good kids don't say. They say that of kids who are on the wrong path, but might still be saved.
Just as Jessica Whitaker made an incredibly stupid choice. I grew up hearing my relatives say, "Nothing good happens when out after midnight." When did most bad things happen? In the dead of the night to people not at home. Ms. Whitaker proves this to be true once again. She did nothing wrong. She simply made two stupid decisions. An unnecessary and tragic end to her life.
