Sanford FL, PD released a video of George Zimmerman in custody. See below.
Spike Lee tweeted (or actually re-tweeted) an elderly Sanford-area couple’s address claiming it was the address of George Zimmerman.
The problem is that it was the WRONG address!
After hearing about the tweet the couple was forced to flee their home for a hotel due to numerous threats against George Zimmerman including one by the New Black Panther Party.
Lee, who has 200,000+ Twitter subscribers, has removed his tweet.
Controversy continues to swirl around the controversial shooting of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, FL back on Februry 26, 2012 as new pictures and “facts” come to light.
Was Trayvon suspended from school 3 times? Was he caught with burglery tools and a bag of stolen jewelry? Did the initial photos released of Trayvon purposfully show a younger, more “innocent” looking boy? Was he selling drugs? Did he recently “swing on” a bus driver? What about the New Orleans police officer’s comment on a web site, “Act like a Thug Die like one!”
Is all this an attempt to “kill his (Trayvon’s) reputation” as Travyon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, contends?
Was Trayvon the innocent young boy his parents describe or a drug dealing thug some accounts would have you believe? Probably the truth is somewhere in the middle.
The photo on the left was part of a group of photos released by Trayvon’s family, on the right is one Trayvon used on his Twitter account. Probably not much different than how many a teen’s mother perceives their son vs how the boys present themselves on social media sites. Given the choice of photos, which one would your mother have released?
Mr. Giroir’s attorney, Eric Hessler, said Monday that his client “certainly didn’t mean it as a racial comment, as an offensive comment, although it came out that way.”
Mr. Hessler called the officer’s comments “boneheaded.” Giroir resigned Tuesday.
Some people have suggested that the “plant” mentioned in this posting on Trayvon’s alleged Facebook page actually refers to marijuana possibly suggesting he may have provided or sold drugs. (Click thumbnail to see entire message.)
Did Trayvon “swing” on a bus driver as is implied in the twitter posting on the right? Is it really his brother posting this? (Click to see the twitter posting.)
