This time it’s the media pulling the trigger. So reports have been flooding the twitter all day that Martin had pot in his system; but that fact is completely irrelevant. Whether or not he had traces of marijuana in his blood doesn’t change the known facts that
1) Zimmerman followed him when ordered by the police not to do so.
2) Zimmerman pulled his gun and shot Martin, killing him.
If Martin was being followed (and he was) and Zimmerman confronted him (and he did) it would be natural for Martin to defend himself.
So let’s not forget that Zimmerman initiated contact and Zimmerman shot, and killed, an unarmed kid. Let’s remember these facts so that when the media tries to kill Martin again (as it is doing, assassinating his character), the public doesn’t lose sight of the real issues.
And shame on the media for blaming the victim. Were this a case of rape, they never would imagine doing this. But since it’s the murder of a black kid they’re happy to.
