Don't give Trayvon Martin a pass

July 5, 2013 

Since day one of the Trayvon Martin shooting, the media has been showing pictures of Trayvon as a young boy. Here is the reality, folks.

Trayvon was a hoodie-wearing thug wannabe who was more than 6 feet tall and towered over George Zimmerman.

I'm surprised the media has not photoshopped a picture of Zimmerman shooting into a crib. Zimmerman, in my humble opinion, should get a good citizen award.
