People are going to get really upset and probably bury our news article with comments that our coverage is racist. However, we want to be up front and try to explain what we’re trying to accomplish with this news piece. We want to show how the media is full of bias and that on a daily basis you are sold things that are twisted and changed in the way the media wants you to see them. We are not advocating the horrible things George Zimmerman has done to Trayvon or his family. We are trying to point out that you’re not getting the whole story.
From the beginning of the Travyon Martin case he has been presented as a little boy who was carrying a bag of skittles. George Zimmerman was sold as a man out to get Trayvon and attacked him while he was walking around in a gated neighborhood. The pictures that have been presented of George Zimmerman are essentially mugshots with orange jail clothes. The pictures of Treyvon are very innocent, digitally altered to make him look soft and angelic and never show his tattoos, gold teeth or gang signs.
Why aren’t you being told that:
- Travyon Martin was witnessed to be on top of George Zimmerman before he was shot?
- George Zimmerman was cut in the back of his head and had his nose bloodied by Trayvon Martin.
- Trayvon Martin was suspended from school for vandalism and caught with marijuana, stolen jewelry & burglary tools.
- Trayvon Martin was either giving or selling weed to his friends?
- Why haven’t you seen pictures of Trayvon and his gold teeth?
- Why haven’t you seen Travyon and his tattoos he shared on Twitter & MySpace?
- Why is no one talking about Travyon being suspended multiple times from school?
- Why isn’t anyone talking about Trayvon fighting and swinging at a bus driver?
- Why has Trayvon’s picture in his hoodie been digitally altered to make his skin look bright and soft?
- Why isn’t anyone talking about the fact that Trayvon beat up George Zimmerman?
- When Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman collided, why was he out so late at 3:00am walking in the rain?
We believe you haven’t been told any of the above because of media bias.
We have a copy of 30 minutes of the 911 calls as the altercation between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmmerman, the neighborhood watch captain were taking place.
You can listen to the 30 minutes of 911 calls here:
When we first listened to the recordings we have to admit, we were shocked, horrified and felt horrible for Trayvon Martin. You could hear someone screaming help, help, help on the tapes. What we found out from police investigations that it’s not Travyon screaming for help, it’s actually George Zimmerman.
When police arrived on the scene, George Zimmerman’s back was wet, stained in grass and Trayvon Martin was shot in the front, not from behind.
From the Fox Tampa Bay News they list the following information:
And from that moment to the shooting, details are few. But one man’s testimony could be key for the police. “The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said. Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.
The witness only wanted to be identified as “John,” and didn’t not want to be shown on camera. His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman. “When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point,” John said.
Some people have tried to say that George Zimmerman was a racist and that he acted out because Travyon Martin was a black teenager. However a story put out by Reuters reveals from an interview from Mr. Zimmerman’s lawyer that it would be hard to believe Zimmerman was racist considering his mentorship. “This was not a racially motivated situation,” Sonner told Reuters on Saturday from his law office, which has attracted a parade of television satellite trucks since it became public on Friday that he was representing Zimmerman. “Actually George Zimmerman was a mentor to a single mother with a 14 year old son and a 13 year old daughter and she had nothing but good things to say about his involvement with them, and also helping in raising money for their African American church,” Sonner said.
The media is even getting into literally creating the bias by Photoshopping the Treyvon Martin hoodie photos they’re putting in their articles. The original Treyvon Martin hoodie photo was released by the Miami Herald as a Getty Image. If you look at just about any other mainstream news site you’re going to see the new lightened, enhanced and soft image of Trevyon Martin hoodie photo. Why do you think they would Photoshop the hoodie photo? You can view them below.

You have probably seen all the photos that the media is sharing of Travyon Martin besides just the soft colored hoodie one. They are pictures of him when he was 13 years old and when he was playing football. We’ll share those with you below as well:

While you certainly should never judge a book by it’s cover, it gets harder when you notice that the media is providing a pretty tainted canvas. We have also uncovered pictures of numerous tattoos that Trayvon Martin had on his body. There’s certainly nothing wrong with tattoos but it does put a different light on the little kid with skittles that everyone is painting a picture of.
Pictures of Trayvon Martin’s tattoos were recovered from his MySpace account (which is still up and running), Tweets from his Twitter account (which is deleted now but some data is cached by Google) and the pictures are still live on Trayvon Martin’s Twitpic account (which is still running).

Other photos that are used over and over in the media are child like pictures of him at around 13 years old. An example of a couple of those pictures are above with one being a picture of Trayvon smiling and another of him playing football. The picture that you probably haven’t seen is the picture of Trayvon smiling for his Twitter account with his gold teeth showing.
Trayvon Martin’s Twitter Account: SLIMM @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA
Here is the photo Trayvon used for his Twitter pic:
A lot of people have claimed the gold teeth photo of Travyon is not real and is fake. The photo was uploaded by Travyon himself to his @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA Twitter account himself. Trayvon’s cousin: @Rip_Tray9 also mentions this account hundreds of times which you can read all the tweets here.
Here was a Tweet from someone on Twitter that tells Trayvon that he didn’t tell him that he swung at or punched a bus driver. This was a few days before Trayvon’s death and could lead into other clues to his suspension or could be another altercation altogether.
The Daily Caller has created a Scribd backup of all of Travyon Martin’s tweets. The @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA Twitter account has since been removed from Twitter. Instead of detailing all his tweets we’ll let you read them for yourself below:
On February 5th, 2012 it was Trayvon’s birthday. Everyone left him Happy Birthday messages on his Facebook wall. A screenshot provided below shows one friend named,
Mackenzie DumbRyte Baksh saying, “Yeoo happy birthday ! but pik up the fone or hmu we got buisness to talk !”
Treyvon Slimm Martin replies, “NO PHON”
Mackenzie DumbRyte Baksh replies, “Damn were u at a nigga needa plant”
While this certainly doesn’t scream that Trayvon Martin is dealing drugs to his friends, it does add a list to the pile of questions that start showing up now. Did Mackenzie just want to smoke weed from Trayvon or was he buying it?
Trayvon Martin had been suspended from school for vandalism. As reported in the Miami Herald in October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.
Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds. Trayvon was asked if the jewelry belonged to his family or a girlfriend.
“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” he responded, according to the report.
There had been over thirteen different thefts in the private gated neighborhood that George Zimmerman was serving as the neighborhood watch captain. It was 3:00am, raining and and someone was walking suspiciously around the neighborhood with a hoodie on. That would probably arouse suspicion in a lot of people. Trayvon Martin had already been found with a bag full of jewelry & weed so it’s not exactly off base to consider he might have been acting suspicious. No one in the mainstream news media is discussing this part of the incident.
Now if we look at the way George Zimmerman has been portrayed in the media, it’s been fairly negative and made him seem like the aggressor. Most of the time media shares pictures of George Zimmerman it is him shown in orange jail clothes and not a normal picture of him.

Now we certainly don’t know if Mr. Zimmerman is innocent, he clearly didn’t follow the dispatcher’s orders to not approach Trayvon Martin. All that we want to bring to your attention is there is information out there that is not being told and is being exaggerated or focused on. Let this situation go through the courts in due process and let justice be done either way. When the Black Panther party puts out a $10,000 bounty on George Zimmerman’s head it only feeds into potential riots and race wars.
Unfortunately, these days we can’t rely on the media, nightly news or your local newspapers to tell you the whole truth and nothing but the truth. All you can expect to get is a sensational story that will keep you watching their news channel or reading their newspaper. Hopefully the courts can take care of this issue while the United States refocuses on other issues that effect the entire country on a daily basis.
