Trayvon Martin: Mookie Strikes Again!

So Mad Saint Jack sends me this story the whole internet is talking about:

The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a ‘burglary tool’ – a flathead screwdriver – and 12 pieces of women’s jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.

Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a ‘marijuana pipe’ and an empty baggie with traces of the drug.

That shit wasn’t his, it was Mookie’s!

Look in all seriousness Martin’s backstory is starting to look like a family problem our family is going through. I have a cousin. Just like Martin I could show some Cherub-Like photos from when he was a teen, and talk about what a sweet kid he was.

But he got into drugs. First it was just marijuana and underage drinking charges. Then it was harder drugs and DUI. There was a fatal accident in there. There were B&E and petty theft when he was stealing things to get drugs. Jail, rehab, kicked out of rehab, etc. Like Martin (not implying this was their motivation) his folks got him to go on trips out of town with family so he could get away from his drug-using friends. That worked well, but sadly that can’t last forever, because his goal in life appears to be solely getting high. I belive his latest charge is a DUI, which is a probation violation, so he’ll be doing some prison time soon. He’s not yet 30, and I have my doubts he’ll live that long at this rate.

I’m not saying any of this stuff was true for Trayvon, but with all the gangsta behavior prior to his death, the alleged odd behavior he was exhibiting before his death, and the drug possession, sending him out of town for his suspension, and discussion of violence, it doesn’t sound outside the realm of possibility.

Some of this will become clear when Mr. Martin’s autopsy report is made public for the trial. 17 is too young to be into all this crap, but the sad reality is that it happens too often.

Still also one thing you see with the George Zimmerman Lynch mob, never is the possibility that Martin may have been on drugs or violent ever comes up. Nor is there ever an acknowledgment that self-defense can and does happen. Anti-rights activists never want to talk about self defense because its the elephant in the room for gun ownership. Same goes for this case.

Of course the angry racist gatherings continue with pictures of the adorable twelve-year-old, and talking about his “Murder” at the hands of a “White Racist”. The truth isn’t important to them, and more people are going to die.

So Sad.

    Sounds like it was all Somedude’s fault again. . . Trayvon was fraimed by Somedude! I gotta start printing those signs up now. . .

    This is slightly off-topic, but I saw the Rachael Maddow clip from the other day when she railed against guns and revisited the Giffords shooting. She has made her opinions on self-defense laws very clear the past few weeks, but when she is talking about the importance of banning magazines, she turns 180 degrees. That’s right, citizens are supposed to charge and disarm crazy shooters during the 2 seconds it takes to reload (preferably unarmed). Just throw our bodies in there. How exactly are we supposed to do this while exercising our duty to retreat? Never mind that she has her facts wrong when she claims the Tucson shooter was stopped because he had to reload as opposed to the gun jamming (ironically because it was an extended magazine).

    There were a lot of heroes who stood their ground that day.

      Well a lot of “Progressives” believe in unarmed self defense, but as soon as you bring up a true equalizer their world view gets in the way. “Guns Are Bad, Because They’re Bad” is their mantra, and somebody (like Joe Zamudio who ran TOWARDS the gunshots when he easily could have run away) with a gun using it for good is often vilified.

      Their agenda is ALWAYS more important than public safety.

      • Jack says:

        On a correction, the progressives believe in unarmed self defense for the proles.

        It’s fine for them to have carry permits, private armed guards, state-provided armed guards, or simply have their flunkies illegally carry.

        If memory serves Maddow herself shoots and since she lives in NYC has to have a permit.

        But hey, setting up a neo-aristocracy is what they’re all about.

        • Weerd Beard says:

          Not sure if Maddow got a permit or guns…or if she uses security. I know I’ve talked about her shooting here before, but she, her girlfriend, and her employees go to a shooting club in NYC and rent guns.

          Of course in that sense there is NO reason to like guns. They’re just very dangerous playthings. You can still have accidents, injuries, homicides, and suicides on a club firing line. What you can’t do is defend yourself at home and as you conduct your daily business.

          When you ban self-defense, like in the UK, guns can only do harm, and are unable to do good. In that case, just ban them.

          • Jack says:

            Which is the situation Canada is facing as they have guns but any self defense use is punished hard.

            Hmmm… so they take a vital self defense tool and use it purely as a toy, and one they want to ban to the greater public….

            Yeah that’s not like “No Hunting in the King’s preserves”.

    Linoge has a great post about the photo spread shown by all the media outlets reporting on the story. The “role reversal” image is fantastic!

  4. Bubblehead Les says:

    Uh, the 17 year old kid I shot at back in ’83 had Stolen Property from over 20 Break-ins in my Neighborhood when the Police searched his home later that day. So, I really don’t get into this whole “but he’s just a Young Kid”excuse that seems to be bandied about anymore. Hell, if that was the Case, the Kid who executed those students in Chardon last month could just Walk.

    Of course, I’m a Little Prejudiced, since I spent my 18th Birthday in Boot Camp…….

    • Weerd Beard says:

      Yeah, back when I commuted through Boston I’d see the gangs rolling 5-10 strong. Some of them Hispanic, some black, some Irish. All in that age group from 15-25. Age is irrelevant as humans are close to full grown in their late teens, and their ability to do deadly violence is very real.

  5. Greg Camp says:

    Have you seen the latest on Martin’s Twitter comments? Nothing that Zimmerman could have known, but they do paint a picture of who Martin was.

  6. A lot of the recent information has not lent itself to a corroboration of the Zimmerman story. However given that this information has been filtered through a media that has routinely skewered the facts (digitally manipulated photo’s, a video that looked edited, a failure to report Trayvon’s posing as a thug online, outing a 13 year old they believed to be a witness for Zimmerman, calling Zimmerman a “white” and so on) I don’t feel comfortable abandoning belief that he might be a victim in all this. But yeah . . . on the surface it is not looking very good for him.
