A little bit is OK, but watch out for derp toxicity.  Usually someone will post a synopsis.

What a lot of speculation that Martin was drug-crazied on pot who attacked Zimmerman first. What pile of steaming BS.

I read quite a bit of it, got to the point where it became mostly speculation and then skimmed a bit... still don't know what grand truth was supposedly uncovered.  If their point was that Martin was stoned, then that only makes it seem less likely to me he instigated the conflict, stoners are usually pretty chill.

So, who's betting on riots at the end of the trial? Doesn't seem to matter if Zimmerman is actually guilty or innocent, everyone's made up their minds.
 
2013-05-22 03:59:41 PM
Synopsis:

Drugs: Martin was likely a user of narcotics, and almost certainly smoked weed before the altercation.

The alibi: Martin's girlfriend is a dumbass whose story ranges from implausible to proven false.

The fight: Given the size difference of Martin and Zimmerman, Martin could have easily ran away from Zimmerman. Ergo, the only way the fight could have occurred was if Martin chased down Zimmerman and confronted him.

Zimmerman: Obeyed the dispatcher's order to not follow and was headed back to his truck when the altercation began.

End synopsis.

the best bit of blogging detective work since the busting of Dan Rather's Air National Guard scam eight years earlier.

Weird how "conservative" blogs never credit the guy who was actually behind that detective work anymore. Probably just an oversight.

Considering that the autopsy found that Martin wasn't under the influence of any illicit substances when he died, I think even the point is flawed.

We all know that Zimmerman was driving a bunch of disabled orphans to church when Trayvon "Shaka-zulu" Martin and his horde of coloreds carjacked poor Mr Zimmerman at a traffic light. Luckily, George "Doc Holiday" Zimmerman (as he's known at the range) got the drop on the 'Alpha' and put him down before he could get anywhere near the white women. The rest of them scattered leaving poor Mr Zimmerman behind - a double victim.

Apparently, they're saying Martin saw Zimmerman, decided to dump some stuff, then go back and jump him.

Dee Dee made at least one other claim that was suspect. As she told Crump and ABC's Matt Gutman in her initial phone interview in March 2012, "Then somebody pushed Trayvon because the headset just fell." The police, however, found Martin's phone buds in his pocket. He apparently took them off before the encounter. He took the button off as well. The police found that in his pocket. The police did not find the blunts. Martin had ample time to go back to the Greens' porch, stash whatever was left of them, pocket the button and the ear buds, and return to seek out Zimmerman.

This very same author would venomously deny the inference that George Zimmerman started the physical confrontation because he was angry, armed, aggressive, and confrontational, while Trayvon was acting lawfully, was unarmed, and sought to avoid confrontation.

Trayvon "Crack Rock" Martin as his "homies" in the "hood" called him, was high on purple drank and white guilt when he attacked George "America's Watch Captain" Zimmerman who was returning home from his  charity work at the hospital where he was reading the Constitution to sick children.

The only thing that stops a blackman with a bag of skittles is a whiteman with a gun and the raging of his failure at life and his desire to become a hero in the eyes of his white rightwing church members who will bestow upon him the invisible crown of justice as per the ancient tradition from the crusades where the biggest slob would be sent forth to chase down the children to cut them open so that they could never grow up and rise against the white devil.

/Zimmerman has two choices: Admit his murder for a plea bargin of not being put in general population, or kill himself in self defense as he tries to shoot himself in the head.

One has evidence, which you have described as 'thin.'

The other has no evidence.

Where's the contridiction?

What I find funny about these threads is that literally only one side of the argument has to invent facts to pass their clearly false narrative. The other side just lists the facts and realizes there's no case here for murder or even manslaughter.

Queue the same lies we get in every one of these threads - "zimmerman attacked martin," "if someone is following me i have the right to attack them," "zimmerman disobeyed a direct police order," etc etc. It's so tired. The only witness to present a narrative that supports Trayvon Martin has already purgured herself and is thus an established liar.

This article, while presenting some irrelevant theories about Trayvon smoking weed beforehand, isn't needed anyway as all the facts support Zimmerman's version of events, and is only written to dispute the common sheeplike understanding most people have given the false narrative of the case presented by most of the Media. (see outdated pictures of both people presented for days, if not weeks afterwards)

So American Thinker can't fact check a political issue to save their worthless lives, but they will check Urban Dictionary for the definition of "purple drank"?

End synopsis.


You forgot the purple drank!  He was going to use the Arizona Iced Tea and Skittles to make purple drank!

Excerpt from TFA:

In July 2011 Martin began subscribing to the daily video log of a character named Andy Milonakis, whose life seems dedicated to drug use, specifically a concoction known by various street names including "purple lean" or "purple drank." The Urban Dictionary describes purple drank as "a mixture of Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup and Sprite, with a few jolly ranchers and/or skittles thrown in." In May 2012, the Treehouse screen-captured a revealing Facebook exchange from June 2011 between Martin and a character called "Mackenzie DumbRyte Baksh:

MARTIN: unow a connect for codine?
MACKENZIE: why nubian
MARTIN: to make some more
MACKENZIE: u tawkin bout the pill codeine
MARTIN: no the liquid  its meds. I had it b4
MACKENZIE: hell naw u could just use some robitussin nd soda to make some fire ass lean
MARTIN: codine is a higher dose of dxm
MACKENZIE: I feel u but need a prescription to get it

Martin obviously had some familiarity with this world. The reader will have noted too that a soft drink like Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail and some Skittles would get the user two-thirds of the way to some "fire ass lean." On the night of the shooting, the Sanford PD incorrectly identified Martin's drink of choice as "Arizona brand name tea." They did not do so on purpose, and the media followed their lead. But the media continued to refer to the drink as tea long after they should have known better. This was due in part to sloppiness, in part to racial sensitivity about the word "watermelon," and in part to the drug implications of a fruity soft drink.

I'm betting we can't even get a trial because of all the pretrial derp. Zimmerman will probably take a plea.

Trayvon "C-Block Crack Rock Shock Top" Martin had probably just left home from his latest violent home invasion where he forced local high school honors students with Harvard scholarships to smoke crack and follow an A-C-D-C pattern on their multiple choice college prep exams, when he became thirsty and light-headed from a combination of his pure evil and low-blood sugar. Instead of stealing Skittles and iced tea like he probably usually does, he paid cash, which no doubt came from selling LSD-laced milk to kindergarten-aged white children.

Also note from page 2 of the same report that the button was found pinned to Trayvon Martin's sweatshirt by the officer on the scene.

It appears that whoever wrote that "article" that you are citing is basing his entire premise from misreading a particularly ungrammatically constructed sentence within the listing of evidence. However, from the narrative police report itself, it is clear that the button was not in the pocket, but rather pinned on the sweatshirt and the headphones were found in the ground next to Martin's body.
