I’ve read more than thirty articles now and continue looking for ANY proof that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin actually PAID for both items he supposedly bought from a nearby corner store before his death in the Twin Lakes gated community where his father lived, but I’m not finding ANY evidence he DIDN’T STEAL them.
I hope I’m NOT the only one asking this question and know there’s going to be some backlash for asking it. But if Martin was stealing from or suspected of stealing from any of the neighborhood’s corner stores, we need to know.
After more review, I find the Sanford Police DO believe Martin STOLE the candy and the tea:
“After we stripped the dead suspect and tested him for drug and alcohol use and then dug under his finger and toe nails for any incriminating DNA, we checked his blood-soaked clothes for any kind of evidence of wrong doing. All we found was 34 cents and a couple of baseball cards.” …
“That’s it?” Gretchen Carlson asked dismayed.
“Seems to me that something was obviously missing: why wasn’t there a receipt for the pop [sic] and candy?” …
“We at the Sanford Police Department asked the exact same question, Gretchen,” Lee explained.
“We concluded that the suspect must have stolen the candy and tea, and in my mind that bolstered Mr. Zimmerman’s self-defense claim. (Link)
Numerous media outlets and the official police report have established that all Martin had in his possession with him at the time of his death was a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona Iced Tea. But did he pay for BOTH them.
Determining whether he paid for or stole the items will go a long way in establishing the already questionable character of this young, black male who news reports say DID come from a broken home.
