One simple fact seems really hard for people to understand, Trayvon Martin committed no crime. To be even more clear, he did no wrong. He was where he was supposed to be and wasn’t bothering anyone. So any attempt to try to create some history of a troubled youth, like so many in the conservative media have tried to do is really meaningless. It actually doesn’t matter, because on the day he was murdered, Trayvon was simply walking home.
Despite that fact, the demonization of Trayvon has been non stop since he was shot down by George Zimmerman. From being called a nigger on a highway sign, to being called a “a dangerous thug who needed to be put down like a rabid dog“, to the incredible irony of George Zimmerman’s own brother comparing Trayvon to a young man that senselessly killed a 13 month old child. George Zimmerman’s defense team predictably piled on by releasing cell phone pics and text that according to them show Trayvon was “hostile” and then a video they said was Trayvon beating a homeless man, which was a outright lie.
