More Attempts to Discredit Trayvon Martin

Okay, the latest report to hit the news is that Trayvon Martin was on a 10-day suspension from school at the time of his killing.  School officials found a baggie in his backpack that may have contained traces of marijuana.  Uh, who gives a ____?   An autopsy was done on that young man’s body, and it revealed absolutely nothing that could be considered a cause for his behavior at the time of confrontation.   And to add flies to manure, it is now being reported that the Florida police department at the center of this scandal was responsible for the leak.  This was obviously a smear tactic to dishonor Trayvon and attack his character.   I am sickened by the desperate attempts of many to provide any form of evidence (irrelevant or otherwise), to justify the actions of Zimmerman.   Why else would this information surface at this precise time?

I’d like some better answers to explain why a police department would go to such lengths to protect one man; and even scarier, have they done something like this before?  If so, how many times?  I think the community would agree with me that even once is too many.

To the Martin family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.  We will continue to do our part in shedding light on this injustice through the use of our platform.

You can call me JULU. I’m a single working mother of two. I’ve been referred to as “an old soul” and have a knack for reading people. I’m friendly by nature and cool with just as many women as men. I’m that person who always gets the quiet people to talk. When giving advice, expect my answers to contain a heap load of wisdom gained from my vast personal experiences, a considerable amount of women’s intuition, and a dash of humor. I will not excuse behavior for ANYONE. Wrong is wrong, and if you do wrong then ask my opinion, expect the hard truth about it. I’m a great communicator, and enjoy talking and sharing thoughts with others. I’m also an artist, so view life creatively. I believe there are many different ways to handle the many different situations we encounter in life. Expect some humor where appropriate. I’m a trip, and will clown you as I see fit. Where guys are concerned, they typically think of me in one of two ways. I’m either like a sister, or they tend to “forget I’m a girl” because I’m so frickin’ laid back and “don’t get all emotional” like women tend to. Life is what it is, so no need in me stressing over stuff I can’t control. Don’t get me wrong I have my moments. I just usually take the common sense approach to solving problems instead of letting my heart do the talking; and then if that doesn’t work, I ask Drake. ☺ I have an Associates Degree in Business, and an Honorary Degree in “Dealing with Life’s BS.”
