    I've seen this photo go viral.

    [​IMG]

    It turns out that this photo was not Trayvon Martin.

    Correction and update: Twitchy issues apology for fake Trayvon Martin photo

    Turns out the photo was some middle school student in New York, who had the same name. Morons.

    And yet the "rational" members of USMB continue to post that picture and believe that it is the same Martin. Because that's what they WANT to believe.

    I wonder what he looked like? Certainly not the photo if the 12 year old angel the news media keeps using

    I'm not "shocked" to see such a petty thread.

    With all we have to worry about, this is what some find important..

    The really sad thing is, it shouldn't even matter. Even if the picture was of the kid who was killed, it doesn't justify the killing. It shouldn't in any sane person's mind, and it definitely doesn't in the eyes of the law. But we're not talking about sane, rational people here.

    Even if it was a photo of Trayvon, why the fuck would it matter? There's nothing wrong with that photograph.

    OH NO HE'S FLIPPING OFF THE CAMERA, HE MUST BE A BAD KID!

    Apparently nobody has seen the photos other upstanding citizens on sites like facebook post.

    There's plenty of dishonest photos that are viral, on any issue, but lets not pretend this photo was all over the media.

    When do we find out that none of the witness accounts corroborate with each other or Zimmerman's story?

    It's simple.

    Get the SHERIFF to arrest this fuck.
    You have him at the scene of the crime. With the murder weapon. You have the police dispatch calls, telling him to back off. He got OUT of his car and confronted the kid. Make him prove his case of self defense. I'm REALLY looking forward to hearing how this kid threatened this vigilante with his big mean, evil looking BAG OF SKITTLES and HOODIE!
