I don’t mean to demean a dead man but the candy toting kid image painted by the family (understandably) and by the media (not so much understandingly) is a little out of focus.
This misrepresented image is a danger to the neighborhood watch captain that unfortunately was on duty the night the troubled teen set out on a candy run.
It’s a shame that things like hoodies have been adopted by gangs as a sort of part of their BDU, to borrow something from the military, but such is the case, along with baggy pants.
The watch captain may not have even known Trayvon’s skin color when he first became suspicious of the hooded figure in the gated community. Was it raining, was it cold?
An eyewitness said he heard cries of help and when he looked Trayvon had the watch captain down beating him and then he heard the shot. The watch captain had a broken nose and an injury to the back of his head.
The media, the civil rights agitators, and even the president of the United States have publicly taken Trayvon’s side and put the watch captain in serious peril, the New Black Panther Party has even put out a $10,000 bounty on him.
