Defense attorneys in the George Zimmerman case today released evidence they discovered onTrayvon Martin‘s cell phone, including text messages in which he wrote about taking part in organized fights.

The new evidence also includes texts in which he wrote that his mother had just kicked him out of the house and that he was in trouble for cutting class at school.

The evidence packet also includes two dozen photos, one that shows him with gold teeth and one of him making an obscene gesture.

Some of the photos have been widely circulated online, but today defense attorneys officially notified prosecutors that they intend to use them at Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial June 10.

    What does his desire to be like his peers have to do with the fact that he was hunted like an animal and killed all because he was the wrong color walking in the dark? I have old letters where I wrote that I hated my mother and I wish I could run away but that does not show who he was, he was a young black male going through the everyday struggles that you black males go through because they are always thought of as thugs and killers where that is so far from the truth! I hope he gets life in prison.

    I’ve had a gold tooth – it’s a black thing; I’ve made obscene gestures – it’s a black thing; I’ve gotten kick out – it’s a kid’s thing; I’ve cut classes – it’s a student’s thing; and I’ve taken part in old neighborhood fights; guess you can call them organized – it’s a neighborhood thing. These are some of the things that black people do; if not all people. But, not one of those things is a dead sentence; they’re simply activities of young American kids. If the racists win a case based on a dead child’s past activities; then there’s dead sentence; at the hand of racists; awaiting all of us. I AM TRAYVON MARTIN!

      Is it a black thing to buy guns and get kicked out of your house and then take money from your mother to buy pot? George Zimmerman was defending himself from a thug with a chip on his shoulder, it’s a white thing.

    No matter what kind of thug you appear to be. I’m not a thug. I’m a grown ass college educated black man with a career. If i’m walking in any neighborhood, no one has to know where i’m going or what i’m doing there. If i attempt to run it means i’m protecting myself. If you continue to follow me and i kick your punk ass, I’m still protecting myself. If you pull a gun and shoot me it’s because your punk ass could not take the ass whipping that you chased me down to get. Now George Zimmerman is the thug in this case. Now V.P. tell me you have not brought or smoked pot. Seems to me ole Georgie Boy had the chip and the gun.

  • SCARY THUG BLACK MALE EVIL CRIMINAL UNEDUCATED TROUBLE MAKER TOTALLY EVIL

    It is a fact that in America being born black is a strike against you “DAY ONE”! Especially if born black and male! Black males are hated and fear and disrespected and extremely discriminated against! When a police officer (or person with gun) murder an “UNARMED” “NON- CONBATIVE” handcuffed black male. The first thing the police department does is release any criminal record or traffic violation. Or in the case of Trayvon Martin his school grades and how many times he been suspended from school. All these thing are to justify the murder of a “UNARMED” black male! If the murderer can paint a picture of a scary thug black evil uneducated trouble maker totally evil black male! “THE BOOGIE MAN” A jury can relate and justify the murder of a “UNARMED” black male!

    QUESTION: How can any of that stuff be called evidences? I thought evidence was to be about the night “UNARMED” Trayvon Martin was murder! Whether Trayvon Martin’s mother threw him out or sent him to live with his father SO WHAT! How does that justify George Zimmerman killing Trayvon? Or a teenager talking about organizing fights. Which coming from a teenager could be a total LIE! Cutting class at school and walking home from a store should not lead to getting killed. Or rather justify murder! Also none of the so-call evidence was known to Zimmerman before he murdered Trayvon.. There are a selection of photo of Trayvon one showing a gold tooth. This is evidence to what?? So how is it relevant you asked???

    See the relevant is painting Trayvon Martin as scary thug black evil uneducated trouble maker totally evil black male! “THE BOOGIE MAN”!The Defense attorneys in the George Zimmerman case knows the racist negative stereotype of black males. The history of black hatred! He understands that he must paint Trayvon as a black negative stereotype! Because otherwise he would have to explain how George Zimmerman on the night and first site of Trayvon. Stalk and murdered an “UNARMED” Trayvon Martin walking home. With ice tea candy and a cell phone wearing a hoodie! The Defense Attorney would have to explain what criminal act Trayvon Martin was doing. To justify Zimmerman calling 9/11! Then telling the dispatcher that Trayvon looked like he was up to something and on drugs!

    Remember Zimmerman “NEVER” met Trayvon but stated “they always get away”! He also called Trayvon a “fu&ken Punk” and a “asshole”! To-date Zimmerman “HAS NOT” stated anything Trayvon Martin was doing criminal!
