Seven Things The “News” Didn’t Tell You (or Your Lo-Fo Friends) About Trayvon Martin

I’m not sure if MS-NBC has started showing Trayvon Martin in utero, but since every photo we see of this innocent “unarmed child” (or “chile” as some of his fans say) shows him younger and younger, that sonogram can’t be far behind, can it? We haven’t seen this photo much, though.Trayvon Martin, Gangsta Culture

Except that that sweet chile grew into a teen from a broken home who admired the gangsta culture, who used recreational drugs, and but for the desire of a police department looking to cook its books by not reporting crimes by black male students, would have been the subject of a criminal investigation for burglary after stolen property was discovered in his backpack.

If you have friends who get their “news” from traditional dinosaur sources like network (read state-controlled media), local over-the-air newscasts or terrestrial radio (read “Are you smarter than a 5th Grader?” You know the answer), please take any opportunity you have to share this information with them.

The following information about Trayvon Martin and Lean comes from an extensive post by Dedicated Dad over at conservativetreehouse.com entitled “Trayvon Martin Shooting-A Year of Drug Use Results in Predictable Violence.” It’s definitely worth your time. You can see the screen captures of Trayvon’s Facebook conversations there, too.

  1. He was a fan of “Lean,” also known as “purple drank,” a recreational drug popular among Southern rappers, made from Robitussin, a soft drink (originally Sprite), and sometimes with a couple of Jolly Ranchers or Skittles thrown in.
  2. Robitussin’s active ingredient is DXM, Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide, and Trayvon wanted as much of it as he could get.
  3. In one of his Twitter conversations, Trayvon asks a friend if he knows how he can get his hands on some Codeine because “codine is a higher dose of dxm.”
  4. DXM has been called the “Poor Man’s PCP.” That’s right, PCP, which is known to cause extreme agitation and even violence.
  5. THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, was in Trayvon’s system when he died.
  6. He was in Sanford, FL, 240 miles from home, because he had been suspended from school, after 12 pieces of stolen jewelry and a burglary tool turned up in his backpack. The School Resource Officer was searching the backpack for a marker that this innocent chile used to write “WTF” on a school locker when he discovered the jewelry. The items matched the list of items reported stolen in a burglary of a house a few blocks away from the school Trayvon attended.
  7. As reported by Pat Dollard, Trayvon Martin was not charged with a crime because the School Resource Officer “never filed a criminal report, nor opened a criminal investigation, surrounding the stolen jewelry. Instead, and as a result of pressure from M-DSPD Chief Hurley to avoid criminal reports for black male students, Dunn wrote up the jewelry as “found items”, and transferred them, along with the burglary tool, to the Miami-Dade Police property room where they sat on a shelf unassigned to anyone for investigation. The school discipline, “suspension”, was attached to the graffiti and not the stolen jewelry.”

Have you seen any of these facts reported on the afore-mentioned Lo-Fo “news” sources? Of course not! Nor have they spent any time on the despicable and unethical conduct of the prosecution.

Local News: Very Little Information, LOTS of Unintentional Comedy

As you know, I watch so you don’t have to, so I know that if you’re looking for actual substance, you’re not going to find it on last century television network newscasts. Their local affiliates are even less worthy of your precious time, unless that is you’re looking for a few good laughs. Where else are you going to see a woman talk about the fact that the “vacuum cleaner man” has “seen my tits?” So, to help you celebrate New Year’s, I present this 2012 local news blooper real. Enjoy!
