Trayvon Martin's Parents Angry After His Background Information Leaks, "They've Killed My Son, And Now They're Trying To Kill His Reputation" [Video]

Trayvon Martin’s parents lashed out at reports that he had been suspended from school because of drugs, graffiti and suspected burglary, accusing cops of smearing their slain son to boost his killer, George Zimmerman.

 

They’ve killed my son, and now they’re trying to kill his reputation,” his mom, Sybrina Fulton, said Monday.

 

Police leaked Zimmerman’s version of the Feb. 26 shooting in Sanford, Fla., saying Zimmerman fired only after the 17-year-old decked him with a single punch, repeatedly smashed his head on the ground and tried to grab his gun.

 

Officials told ABC News that Trayvon, who had no criminal record, received a 10-day suspension from Krop High School in Miami for having an empty marijuana baggie. Authorities also told the Miami Herald that he was suspended in October, when he wrote “WTF” on a locker, and his knapsack was found to contain items of women’s jewelry and a screwdriver deemed a possible “burglary tool.”

 

The grieving parents said any high-school scrapes had no bearing on Trayvon being shot to death while carrying only a bag of Skittles and an iced tea.

 

We take pride in our kids and it tears me apart to sit here and listen to the slander they are giving my son,” Martin said. "Even in death, they are still disrespecting my son.”

 

Before an evening rally of 10,000 people, the parents, along with civil rights leaders and elected officials, presented a packed meeting of the Sanford City Commission with 2 million signatures on a petition demanding Zimmerman’s arrest.

 

The city, which appointed a new black police chief on Monday, has insisted that Zimmerman could not be arrested because he claimed self-defense.

 

You have voted no confidence in the police chief, how can you have confidence, then, on the lack of police action?” the Rev. Al Sharpton asked the commissioners.

 

America is on trial today,” said the Rev. Jesse Jackson. “The whole world is watching Sanford today.

 

A month after the shooting, police leaked a new version of events. Zimmerman, a self-styled neighborhood watchman, spotted Trayvon leaving his father’s fiancée’s house in an Orlando-area gated community around 7 p.m. on Feb 26 and said he decided to follow because he thought the boy looked suspicious.

 

The 17-year-old was wearing a hoodie in the drizzle and talking to his 16-year-old girlfriend on the phone.

 

She has said Trayvon told her he was being stalked, and she heard him ask Zimmerman, “Why are you following me?” Then she heard the sounds of a scuffle and the line went dead.

 

Phone records corroborate that she was talking to Trayvon just before he died.

 

Zimmerman’s version, according to the Orlando Sentinel and ABC News, is that he lost sight of Trayvon and was walking back to his car when Trayvon approached him from the left rear.

 

Zimmerman told police Trayvon asked him if he had a problem, and when Zimmerman said no, Trayvon said something like, “Well, you do now,” and punched him in the nose.

 

Zimmerman says he fell to the ground and Trayvon jumped on top of him and began slamming his head into the ground. Zimmerman then shot Trayvon once in the chest from very close range, according to authorities.


Police arrived two minutes later.

 

According to the police report, Trayvon was facedown in the grass with his hands beneath his body.

 

Zimmerman’s back was wet and covered with grass “as if he had been laying on his back on the ground,” Officer Timothy Smith wrote in the police report.

 

Smith said Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and the back of his head.

 

I was yelling for someone to help me, but no one would help me,” Zimmerman told the paramedics who gave him first aid, Smith said.

 

Zimmerman was taken to the police station and interviewed, then let go.

 

At least one witness corroborated his story, telling cops he saw Trayvon on top of Zimmerman, punching him. Other witnesses have said they saw Zimmerman standing over Trayvon.

 

Cries for help were captured on several 911 tapes and were heard by a number of witnesses. Exactly who was calling out is in dispute — some say it was Zimmerman, others Trayvon.

 

The police report lists Trayvon as 6 feet tall and weighing 160 pounds. Zimmerman was listed as 5-feet-9. His weight was not recorded but pictures show he clearly outweighs Trayvon.

 

Martin family attorney Ben Crump said police were trying to “blame the victim by releasing bits and pieces of an ongoing investigation to build Zimmerman’s claim up.”

 

The Sanford police said it was investigating who leaked the information.

 

As the case became a national referendum on race and gun rights, some conservative websites began publishing unflattering photos of Trayvon and disseminating what were purported to be his gangsta-style tweets.

 

Zimmerman, an insurance analyst, has been in hiding since a fringe group put a $10,000 bounty on his head.

 

A CNN poll found 67% of Americans are following the case. A huge majority — 73% — say they believe, based on what they’ve heard, that Zimmerman should have been arrested.

 

Meanwhile, Mayor Bloomberg took a shot at Florida’s lax gun laws.

 

This guy Zimmerman, how could he have had a permit to carry a concealed weapon — a loaded gun — in the first place? Because long before he shot Trayvon Martin, he was arrested for attacking a police officer and was the subject of a court order to prevent domestic violence,” Bloomberg said.

 

Zimmerman was charged with resisting arrest without violence in 2005 when he argued with a cop busting his friend for underage drinking. He completed a pretrial-diversion program, meaning his record was cleared.

 

Also in 2005, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancée accused him of shoving her during an argument at her Orlando home. He responded with similar accusations against her and they both obtained protective orders.

Zimmermin already had in his mind that this boy was "Guilty" because of his appearance, and Lord knows whatever else, what past bad experience, he encountered with "Black people" or "Black males "prior to this specific day or what racist ideology he has been motivated to follow to commit a hate crime towards people he deemed as suspicious, and evil by nature, according to the global "Medias" fixed stereotype, that has been perpetuated throughout "His-story" as though black males, and people of color being nothing but savage animals.. according to the "United States Constitution" which also has the 3 drop rule... the main reason we call "President Obama" the first black" president, when in fact he is the fist openly mixed "Mulatto" born elected President. Because he is in fact just a "White" as he is "Black"...and probably ideally more white, considering he was raised by his "All white mother & family! So beyond the media's global brain washing of every day Americans, depicting blacks to be nothing more then savage born criminals, in pursuit of trouble. He used that to inaccurately racial profile.. Trayvon which lead to him to not only harass this non-threatening innocent kid,who was running home from where he seen "Zimmermin" approaching him asking obscene questions that I'm sure "Trayvon" was probably irritated by because here he is, trying to walk & talk & focus on his conversation with his girlfriend while holding his "Ice tea & skittles" on the way home when seen some racist fat fucc "Top flight security" with a gun, aggressively approaching him only to continue to follow him asking him questions.. that he was told not to do under a direct command from above his security ranking. OH & not to mention two "All white" female neighbors who are also openly stated & re-stated as a two eye witnesses, reported them seeing "Zimmermin" on top of "Trayvon" straddling him outside after the shots went off coming out to see "Trayvon" facedown in the grass, after hearing child cries of help since he almost made it to his house, probably calling for his father to come help him from this crazed security who coming after him! So to everyone who feels that "Zimmermin" isn't wrong should watch that BET special where the conducted those interviews with the witnesses & gave you a walk thru of where it first took place, and the location in which it abruptly ended his young life.. where the female & child eye witnesses seen "Zimmerin" who still claims self defense, straddling "Trayvon" after the shot went off asking "Zimmermin" questions while he was on top of the boy.. who they say ignored them "twice" before saying call the police. To me that doesn't sound like someone who felt "threatened" in need of self defense from a skinny kid carrying a "bag of fruity skittles & Tea" that he bought, not stole, from the store around the corner from his dads girlfriends apartment! So you guys can think what you feel but I promise you one thing.. if their isn't justice in this case watch how this on going "Historical problem" will continue to escalate into something bigger and bigger by the day, until some one takes justice upon themselves and make "examples" out of the perpetrators wearing a badge, who have taken a vow, to up hold the laws and protect the innocent citizens of America, with swift justice for all!

I'm really disturbed by all the assuming when the story was clear.. if any of you were watching BET lat night you would got a even more clear picture of what actually transpired for those who want it to be washed under the rug because you feel like blacks kill each other so whats the big deal? Well lets start with the what was shown on BET last night. They not showed where Treyvon walked into the apartments located close to the "Clubhouse" so according to the "Zimmerman’s" 911 to the police he stated his location of observation was by the "Clubhouse". Now again if you watch the story on BET when they walked through those same apartments, you see that what "Zimmerman" was doing was following "Treyvonn" because the 911 caller ask "Zimmerman" according to the 911 call if he was in pursuit of "Treyvonn" in which he openly stated that was in fact following him. So even though the the 911 caller told this top flight security coward with a pistol, Quote" We don't need you to do that! Why? Because they had a police car in route to his current location since hes being suspected by a "Unprofessional" security guard who needed to be assisted by uniform & badge wearing police officers. So when the 911 caller said the word "Okay, We don't need you to do that" she meant exactly just that which was to stop following him like a late night stalker because the police would handle it but to just be patient. So whats clear is that regardless of the professional dispatch police officer telling him to fall back he... decides to pursue this Black kid who he thought looked suspicious not because he was actually breaking into someone house in that neighborhood carrying a bag of skittles & ice tea "meaning his hands were not free to punch and wrestle some fat belly wanna be "Caucasoid" mexican't who was following him to his father's girlfriends house.So as i mentioned earlier that on the BET spaecial on TReyvonn they showed the complex and where "Zimmermin" confronted the boy & where he shot him dead at, which was about 15 feet from the little boy's house that if "Zimmermin" had carefully followed his command, which was to not to follow "Treyvonn" he would of seen the "real reason" why he was walking through those "Nice Suburban" "All white" apartment or condo complex, which apparent wasn't "All white" because of the visitors and neighbor's who reside there.. like the little boy with his "Stereotype" Pit-bull" that was white! So not only did top flight fat fucc not follow direct orders above his ranking, which was the "sole reason" he called 911 to give them his report, & be advised of what he was permitted to do according to his command directives from the police station who didn't authorized him to follow him & pull out his gun to sub due the supposed suspect..Trayvon who wasn't hoping a fence trespassing, nor breaking in to people houses while holding his "Bag of skittles & Ice tea" in which he paid for didn't steal or run out the stores with into the apartments!! So its fairly clear as day what actually transpired that night "trayvon" was shot was that this "fat fucc "Zimmermin" was pissed that he seen a innocent "black kid" who looked like a trouble maker because of his "media" based stereotype attire look of wearing a "hoody" at night when its usually cold, and his case in fact raining.
