The NYT picture of demonstrators in LA says it all: slowly and painfully, many blacks are all becoming like Trayvon. Alas, this actually refers to the use of gangsta talk and morals, illegal drug consumption and lawbreaking. The latest delusional storyline is, blacks are scared of whites which is patently false. The opposite is true. Many whites are terrified of blacks due to the raging lawlessness that has overwhelmed black communities to the point, people are scared to even drive through them and this has been true for years.
First, before we address the hidden story about Trayvon’s drug abuse and how this probably made him much more violent and reckless, we should look at the editorial assault on our collective right to fight off drug addicts: The NYT continues its assault on basic civil rights with these editorial stories: Self-Defense Was Key in Zimmerman Trial and this bizarre editorial, Trayvon Martin’s Legacy, the acquittal of George Zimmerman should be a call to reform laws that make it easier to kill.
And the Washington Post joins in the fight to eliminate the right to defend oneself when attacked by a punk with this horrible and full of lies editorial: For black Americans, justice is served with an asterisk: The Zimmerman trial verdict revives feelings of fear of being a black man in America, scared for your life. and yet another editorial attacking the right to defend oneself when attacked: Wonkbook: Blame law, not the system.
But the team defending Mr. Zimmerman is also on the legal attack, going after the news media which created this hysteria in the first place, suing everyone who lied about the facts of the matter and who insidiously worked to twist the truth so the aggressor was painted as some sort of child who was minding his own business rather than a drug-addled, violent teen suspended from school for robbery charges who attacked a citizen who was well within the law, stepping outside his car to look around his own neighborhood.
The key element in this storyline about Zimmerman is, ‘He was on patrol’ when he wasn’t. He was going home from the store when he noticed this teen acting oddly who was a stranger to this gated community. So he was curious. Now, there is no law in the US so far, I hope, that forbids homeowners to look into strangers who are wandering around their homes. He had a legal right to check up on this guy who looked menacing from BEHIND.
The racial profiling garbage is for cops. That is, they do not have the right to racially profile. But citizens can be ‘biased’ in this way because they have the right to be suspicious of anyone they choose. The second half of the event was Martin jumping on and physically assaulting the homeowner who was not menacing him. Again, the homeowner wasn’t a cop so can’t be charged with being a civil rights violator but Trayvon WAS a violator of Zimmerman’s civil rights. The teen attacked because he felt like he was king of the streets and had the right to do anything he wanted including terrorizing anyone spotting him. This need to prevent WITNESSES from seeing what he was up to is part and parcel of criminal mind thinking.
From the start, the autopsy of the teen showed drug use. But the real drug is tied into the things this kid bought that night: Trayvon’s Skittles, Arizona Iced Tea and something called ‘Purple Drank’ – Wilmington Conservative | Examiner.com
Media speculation as well as internet buzz are openly querying if Trayvon Martin’s purchase of Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Cocktail Juice on the night he died were just to satisfy a young man’s sweet tooth or were they two of the three ingredients in a dangerous codeine-based concoction, as reported by the pop culture news portal RashManly.com on July 12, 2013.
Martin has been portrayed by his supporters as an innocent youth armed with nothing more than a bag of Skittles candy and a can of Arizona Iced Tea on the night he was killed by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.
During the course of the trial, State Prosecutor John Guy made it official when he identified to the jury Martin’s personal possessions found on his body by police, to include an “unopened bag of Skittles” as well as a “full can of watermelon-flavored drink,” as reported by Central Florida News 13 on June 25, 2013.
A huge disservice was pulled on the public when the prosecutors and state carefully concealed the truth about the drug abuse by Martin. I didn’t even know anything about this ‘Purple Drank’ until one of the commenters on my blog alerted me to this issue. Constantly, the people handing out information about this trial concealed the truth by mentioning ‘tea’ rather than the true name of the drink bought by Martin that night. The watermelon drink is known by law enforcement as a key ingredient in the street drug concoction which causes psychosis and violent behavior when drinkers are high or are edgy because they are anxious to get high.

If you’re wondering what kind of culture these kids are chasing by drinking/sippin’ “sizzurp”, purple drank, or “that lean” then check out this music vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsANbNz0W_c
I grew up in Houston (where this trend began) and it was a commonly accepted “thang” in my old neighbrhood. In fact, it was so common that on Friday night (our local rap station 97.9) played “Screwed” music. Screwed music is any rap song that is remixed to play in slow motion to match the accompanying slow high that is caused by drinking the cough syrup/ juice mix. This musical trend was started by the aptly named DJ Screw (Swisha House Records http://www.theswishahouse.com/ ). To further illustrate what I mean, here’s an example of a Screwed Up/ Chopped up “song”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQcwXFJv9y0
I can tell you from experience that dealing with someone who’s partaken off this drug/juice combo makes for a highly volatile situation. It’s very unlikely that someone would drink “purple drank” without doing other drugs in tandem, e.g. Marijuana, any variety of pills, and eventually cocaine to offset the effects of the codeine/ promethazine
I haven’t been involved with dealing with drug addicts for many years so I was totally unaware of this new ‘drink’. The songs linked to this site examining Martin’s drug abuse are disgusting rap ‘songs’ which are menacing, full of obscenities and were the favorite songs of Martin in his last year of life. The angelic child had vanished in a haze of drug abuse and the autopsy showed he was accumulating brain and liver damage from drinking Purple Drank. His life was going to end due to this if he didn’t stop.
Also, police know that drinkers of this noxious poison get the key ingredient, codeine, from breaking and entering homes of mainly the elderly. I had the codeine cough syrup last winter when I got pneumonia, for example. We don’t know how many homes Martin invaded to steal medicines. I know from my own youth that kids would mainly steal from their own grandmas when they wanted drugs like this. So I am assuming this was the main source for Martin.
We don’t know. All I know is, this vital clue was aggressively suppressed by the State in order to frame Zimmerman and to hide the volatile, dangerous condition of the slowly going insane teen who assaulted him. And you can bet, we all have a civil right to use even deadly force to protect ourselves from crazed drug addicts! Nothing in the law needs to be changed in this regard! Drug addicts do not have a civil right to terrorize communities and run riot, attacking people. And we have a civil right to check into strange behaving addicts who roam our streets!
