Horror: Demarquis Elkins, 17, allegedly threatened Sherry West then shot her infant son when she didn’t give him any money
[State Rep. Joe] Mitchell responded from his public, ALHouse.gov email account at 11:59 p.m., telling Maxwell: “Your folk never used all this sheit (sic) to protect my folk from your slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed (sic), imported criminal-minded kin folk
Murdered: Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were abducted, tortured, raped and killed in 2007
The convictions surround the horrifying killings of Christian and Newsom, who had been dating for just a couple of months when they were found murdered in January 2007.
They were leaving an apartment together and planned on going to a friend’s home to watch a film when they were abducted from the apartment complex parking lot.
Christian’s car was found days later with the help of her mobile phone company, and inside, officers discovered an envelope with fingerprints on, which led them to Lemaricus Davidson and his home.
When officers searched it on January 9, 2007, they found Christian’s body in a bin in the kitchen.
According to court testimony by Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan, Newsom had been repeatedly sodomized with an object and he was bound, gagged and blindfolded.
Newsom was then dragged outside to a set of nearby railroad tracks, where he was shot in the back of his head, neck and back. His body was then set on fire, Mileusnic-Polchan testified.
Christian was also tortured for several hours and sustained injuries to her mouth and genitals. She had been beaten across the head and raped.
Afterwards, bleach was poured over her body and down her throat while she was still alive, in an apparent attempt to destroy DNA evidence.
Christian was then tied up and covered with several bags before she was put in a bin, where she slowly suffocated to death, Mileusnic-Polchan testified.

In one of the starkest contrasts, two people describe wholly different accounts.
Documents in the Trayvon Martin Case
That is utter BS….I have read the original reports from all the witnesses plus I have family on the force in Sanford. TM was a little thug, did he deserve to get shot? That I don’t know, but when you live and act like a thug, you get what you get.
Second, if you remember correctly it was the media who printed GZ was white, not me. But the liberals sure picked up on that lie and ran with it didn’t they? Just like the ignored TM recent past, suspended from school, sent to stay with his father because his mother could no longer deal with him, two days before he was shot TM assaulted a city bus driver. TM was no innocent and GZ has a right to defend himself. Even the media has ‘somewhat” attempted to correct their lies.
“If Zimmerman’s story is to be believed…he gave up the pursuit of Martin and was returning to his car when Martin attacked him. Zimmerman claims that Martin then began banging Zimmerman’s head against the concrete and threatened to kill him. If that’s right, then Zimmerman will have valid defense under Florida law for using deadly force.”

Trayvon Martin killing: witness says he saw Zimmerman walk away uninjured
The anonymous man said he reported to police details of what he saw on the evening of 26 February, which included watching the gunman walking away from the fight apparently uninjured.
It contradicts an allegation from Zimmerman’s father earlier in the day that the unarmed black teenager broke his son’s nose during the incident and also left him with bloody injuries from slamming the man’s head repeatedly on to a concrete pavement. The eyewitness says he saw no blood and that the entire confrontation took place only on grass.
‘Those screams belong to Trayvon’: Experts say desperate cries for for help on 911 were not from George Zimmerman
This incident has become a national tragedy, no matter what the outcome. Trayvon Martin was no angel while George Zimmerman, a cop wannabe, walked along a thin line and stumbled, or perhaps was knocked down. He shot the young man and because he was unarmed, there can be no justification for shooting him. Zimmerman must be prosecuted and if the evidence convicts him, he must serve the time for his crime.
While this may be a case of racial profiling, the black community does not protest with the same vigor against the daily violence within their communities. Whether it’s a girl watching TV at home who gets hit by a stray round or gangbangers killing each other, violence is rampant and common. Surf to a big city news web-site, try Chicago, and see for yourself.

Suspended THREE times for drugs, truancy and graffiti and ‘caught carrying a burglary tool’: New picture emerges of Trayvon Martin (and did he attack a bus driver too?)
• The teen was suspended from school three times
• He was on suspension when he was shot in February, after officials caught him with a ‘marijuana pipe’ and a baggie with drug residue
• Trayvon was kicked out of school in October for graffiti after he was allegedly caught with a ‘burglary tool’ and a bag full of women’s jewelry
• Officials also suspended him once for skipping school and tardiness
• Tearful parents say their son is now the victim of a smear campaign
• New poll shows 73 percent of Americans think Zimmerman should be arrested
PUBLISHED: 08:02 EST, 26 March 2012 | UPDATED: 14:54 EST, 27 March 2012
Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the months before he was shot dead by a neighborhood watchman, it emerged today.
The new claims, revealed in a leaked report, paint a different picture of a teenager who frequently found himself in trouble with authorities.
It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.
The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a ‘burglary tool’ – a flathead screwdriver – and 12 pieces of women’s jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.
Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a ‘marijuana pipe’ and an empty baggie with traces of the drug.
The fresh claims are likely to be seized upon by supporters of George Zimmerman who say the teenager launched an unprovoked attack on the neighbourhood watch volunteer moments before Trayvon was shot dead.
According to an October report of the incident by the Miami Dade Schools Police, obtained by the Miami Herald, Trayvon never received any punishment for the jewellery because he said it was not his and it belonged to a friend.
In total, he had 12 pieces of mostly women’s rings and earrings in his bag.
Instead, he was suspended on October 21 for the graffiti charge.
Ben Crump, a lawyer for Trayvon’s parents, said that they ‘never heard anything like this about a bag of jewelery….And anyway, it’s completely irrelevant to what happened February 26.
‘They never heard this, and don’t believe it’s true. If it were true, why wouldn’t they call the parents? Why wasn’t he arrested?
‘We think everybody is trying to demonize him.’
The Martin family has admitted that the October suspension was his second, and that he had previously been suspended for tardiness and truancy.
The third, and arguably most serious suspension, came in February in the days leading up to his death.
According to the Miami Herald, Miami-Dade Schools Police reported finding a bag with marijuana residue and a ‘marijuana pipe’ in the 17-year-old’s possession.
The boy was never criminally charged, but the Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drug related incidents so he was suspended for an undisclosed amount of time.
Mr Crump said: ‘If he and his friends experimented with marijuana, that is completely irrelevant. What does it have to do with killing their son?’
After rallies and meetings all day Monday in Sanford, Florida, where the shooting occurred, Trayvon’s parents are expected to appear on Capitol Hill Tuesday as the US Congress takes up the issue of racial profiling.
The hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee comes as nearly three quarters of Americans believe Zimmerman should be arrested, according to a CNN/ORC International poll.
Only 11 percent of the people surveyed believe Zimmerman should not be arrested. The rest are unsure.
The unanimity against Zimmerman’s shooting even crosses racial and lines. About 67 percent of whites support his arrest and 86 percent of non-whites. Majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents are all on the same page.
At a Sanford City Council meeting Monday, which turned into a public forum on the Trayvon shooting, Rev Al Sharpton gave city leaders a petition with 2 million signatures of people calling for Zimmerman to be locked up.
The new details about Trayvon’s past come the same day as thousands marched through the streets of Sanford, where the shooting happened, to demand justice.
The boy’s mother and father joined the rally, where they called for justice.
His mother said: ‘I know I cannot bring my baby back. But I’m sure going to make changes so that does not happen to another family.’
While his father Tracy said Zimmmerman ‘needs to be arrested’. ‘He needs to be put on trial.
The national attention from perennial leaders of the black community, Sharpton and Rev Jesse Jackson is not welcome, according to C.L. Bryant, the former head of the NAACP in Garland, Texas.
‘His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions,’ the conservative pastor told the Daily Caller.
He said they were ‘acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.’
Trayvon’s parents and civil rights leaders spoke after a dramatic police account of the fatal shooting claimed the black teen launched an unprovoked attack on the neighborhood watch volunteer in which he punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground and then bashed his head into the sidewalk several times before trying to grab his gun.
The report, leaked to the Orlando Sentinel and ABC News and based on anonymous sources, supports accounts from George Zimmerman’s allies that he acted in self-defense when he shot dead the 17-year-old one month ago in Sanford Florida.
The embattled Sanford Police Department, while condemning the leak, confirmed that the story was consistent with information private to the State Attorney’s office, which is currently considering whether to file charges against Zimmerman.
The police account is also based mostly on Zimmerman’s own words to officers after they arrived at the gated community February 26, but it is the most complete picture of his side of the shooting that has been released publicly.
As the Orland Sentinel reports, Zimmerman got out of his car and followed Trayvon as he walked back to the home of his father’s girlfriend after picking up snacks at a local convenience store.
Zimmerman called 911 to report a suspicious black teenager who looked like he might be on drugs.
As he walked after the teen, the police dispatcher told Zimmerman he didn’t need to keep following.
A minute passes and police don’t know what happens.
Then, according to Zimmerman, Trayvon approached him from behind and they ‘exchanged words.’
Trayvon asked Zimmerman if he had a problem. Zimmerman said, ‘no.’
Then, according to Zimmerman, Trayvon said, ‘Well now you do,’ and unexpectedly punched Zimmerman in the face, knocking him to the ground.
Trayvon, 6-foot-3 and 140 pounds, then reportedly climbed on top of the 250-pound Zimmerman and bashed his head into the sidewalk several times.

One unidentified witness, who did not see the shooting, said he saw a younger man on top of an older man and the older man was screaming for help.
Police say the cries that witnesses reported, which Trayvon’s family say were coming from the teen, are actually likely from Zimmerman.
Zimmerman, who had a permit to carry a handgun, shot Trayvon once in the chest at very close range, killing him.
According to police reports and accounts given by Zimmerman’s lawyer, Craig Sooner, the 28-year-old’s nose was bloody or broken, his lip was bleeding and he had a bloody gash on the back of his head.
As the national outcry over the shooting continued to gather momentum, Zimmerman’s allies say he was in a ‘fight for his life.’
‘It’s not a racial issue. George Zimmerman is absolutely not a racist,’ Zimmerman’s lawyer told the Today Show Monday. Zimmerman is half white and half Hispanic.
His friend Joe Oliver joined his lawyer for several TV interviews Sunday and Monday to publicly defend Zimmerman.
‘The bottom line is there was a life and death struggle in that instance and someone was going to die,’ Mr Oliver told the Today Show.
‘Because he was there and he knows what happened…he’s been very confident — naively — that this would all blow over,’ Mr Oliver said in an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America Sunday. He added that Zimmerman cried for days after the incident.
Too young: Trayvon Martin, seen here in a family photo from a ski trip, was simply holding Skittles when he was shot
Police did not arrest Zimmerman after the February 26 because he cited Florida’s so-called ‘Stand Your Ground’ law, which does not require residents to retreat and allows them to defend themselves when they have reasonable belief that they will be killed or severely injured.
That law could also make it difficult to win a conviction if they file charges against Zimmerman, a top prosecutor told Good Morning America Monday.
‘The Stand Your Ground law is one portion of justifiable use of deadly force,’ veteran State Attorney Angela Corey said.
‘And what that means is that the state must go forward and be able to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt… So it makes the case in general more difficult than a normal criminal case.’
Despite being legally justified, according to friends, Zimmerman is remorseful about killing Trayvon.
Mr Oliver said Zimmerman wishes he could tell the boy’s parents he is ‘very, very sorry.’
Furthermore, Mr Oliver says, Zimmerman, who is currently in hiding, didn’t stop crying for days after the killing.
The interviews comes the same day as a new report says that Justice Department investigators may try to charge him with a hate crime, and they are thought to be using the alleged murmuring on the 911 call to argue he said a racial slur before fatally shooting the teen.
‘If that was a racial epithet that preceded the attack on Trayvon Martin, we definitely have a hate crime,’ said Drexel University law professor Donald Tibbs.
‘It sounds pretty obvious to me.’
Even if Zimmerman is not charged, the entire Sanford police department may be investigated regardless to see if they destroyed or hid any evidence during their initial investigation.
Mr Oliver also identified the voice screaming in the now-infamous 911 tapes as the Neighbourhood Watch captain, not of Martin as the teen’s parents claim.
‘From the clips that I’ve heard online, I heard George. That sounded like someone who was in dire need of help. It sounded like George.’
‘At that point, either George or Trayvon was going to die.’
Despite the defense from Zimmerman’s allies, a new witness has stepped forward and said she and her roommate heard Trayvon screaming before hearing a shot being fired.
In an interview which aired on Dateline NBC Sunday night, Mary Cutcher said that she and her roommate ran out after hearing the shot.
Widespread: Concurrent rallies were held throughout the country, like this one in Atlanta, Georgia
We both saw him straddling the body, basically, a foot on both sides of Trayvon’s body and his hands pressed on his back,’ Ms Cutcher said of she and her roommate.
‘It sounded young. It didn’t sound like a grown man is my point. It sounded to me like someone was in distress and it wasn’t like a crying, sobbing boo-hoo, it was a definite whine.’
‘He started walking back and forth like three times with his hand on the head and kind of, he was walking like kind of confused.
‘He was in shock.’
This version of events plays into the beliefs of millions of protestors who have called for Zimmerman to be charged with murder for shooting the teen and believe the killing was racially motivated.
Ms Fulton, Trayvon’s mother, filed applications with the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office to seek ownership of the phrases ‘I Am Trayvon’ and ‘Justice for Trayvon’ which supporters have adopted as rallying cries.
Ms Fulton’s lawyer, Ms Major Morris, told the Associated Press that the money that will be gathered from the trademark will go to ‘projects that will assist other families who experience similar tragedies’.
She denied that Ms Fulton had any intention of profiting from the move.
The case has become a national issue, and the slain teen’s parents have both quit their jobs to help see that the fight for justice continues. In that effort, they have allowed their lawyers to set up a donation fund for the legal costs, but now they fear that other fake sites have sprung up, hoping to profit from the national outrage.

Have we ever seen a pic of Trayvon as a 6 foot 4 tall 17 year old? Who is guilty of what, I don’t know, but what I do know is that the media are being irresponsible continually showing us pics of a 12 year old Trayvon besides the ‘county orange’ dressed mugshot of Zimmerman. I feat that if Zimmerman is innocent and he comes to harm the media will be be at fault to some degree. Your job is to be objective.

“a life and death battle”. So offensive. This young man lived in the community and was minding his own business coming home for the store with Skittles and iced tea. Zimmerman pursued him and killed this unarmed young man. It’s no wonder this incident is fomenting so much hatred among Blacks…the kid was Black in a basically white area, and he was wearing the very common hoodie….hardly a reason to be shot dead by some over-zealous armed neighbor!
SantaFeJack, Santa Fe New Mexico USA, 26/3/2012 19:46
This whole situation is just one big disaster now. It’s one person’s word against witnesses words. No one knows if it was racial or not. There have been other black men/boys innocently killed , why is this case causing such an uproar?? Not that it shouldn’t but I’ve never seen anything this big. I am not siding with either one because I wasn’t there and have no idea what happened. I do know that there should have been no reason for Zimmerman to shoot this boy dead unless he had a gun pointing at him. I don’t think he’ll go free

ccharles1 4:37 PM EDT
I dont think the police leaked it, it was a paper in Miami that got his school info, in that info was 3 suspensions this year. In one case he is found to be in the possession of 12 pieces of womans jewerly that he refused to tell them where he got them or whos it was, and it was turned over to Miami police. I havnt been able to verify it but i read that the parents wasnt notified of Trayvons death till 3 days after the incident, since no one knew who he was. And when you see up to date pics of the young man, they are nothing like the pictures presented to the public.
What i would like to see is 2 things, one, someone be held responsible for intiating action on a false pretense. Responsiblity and liablity for ones actions needs to be enforced. If the parents lied after the fact, they should pay for the investigation or be jailed. Secondly, i want the justice department to arrest and charge the “Black Panther” for perpentrating raical hatred. While working on what to do about Al Sharpton and Jessy Jackson. They can not tell lies to incite the public on racial lines. This is illegal. If nothing is done about it, they will continue in there aggravating of racially tense situations, as they have done for the past 20 years

The bottom line is Zimmerman is not a police officer and had no business pursuing Martin. He ignored the advice of the police dispatcher and put himself in the position where he was “in fear of his life.” He needs to be charged and let a jury decide this case.
independentincc 4:39 PM EDT
The bottom line is that your conclusion is premature, based upon incomplete information and likely heavily influenced by your personal biases as evidenced elsewhere in this comments section

I was in Florida last week and MSNBC was painting racism all over this before the facts were released. They have abused their media power too often. Freedom of speech is the guise that MSNBC uses to rile racism. Rev Sharpton owes $3.5M in back taxes. Rev Jesse Jackson has a slew of infidelities as well as many other problems. Black people need to choose representatives that not only have skin in the game but share an interest to improve the black experience in America. New Black Panthers? What are they going to do if someone illegally detains Zimmerman? As far as I know, that is going unchecked.
Sherryds 4:06 PM EDT
That’s what the parents get for trying to spin the story in their favor, what with all the innocent Trayvon info they’ve been pushing. Including giving the media pictures of their son that bore almost no relation to what he actually looked like at the time of the incident. I’m sure they are upset. These revelations might impact on the value of their trademarks.

First, I want to give my condolences to the family of Trayvon Martin. I am so sorry for your loss.
Sadly, now we will most likely never hear the truth, the whole truth. There is no justice for the teen who lost his life, the parents, the man who shot him or his family, since the media have already made a mess of it as they do with most things they report. No one is perfect and we have all made bad decisions.
The very best we can do is give the police a chance to do their job and pray for all…

Martin’s family thinks it was their son who was crying out. Witness
accounts differ, and emergency tapes in which the voices are heard are not clear.
Funny, they had two people on the news debating this, and the person that was obviously on the dead kid’s side went into a litany of how unreliable eye witness testimony is…. but when it was though to be the kid crying out for help…. all that eye witness testimony was all true.It sounds to me the kid was a product of his up bringing and it was just a matter of time before he became a burden or worse on society .

so, when trayvon physically attacked zimmerman shouldn’t that be a hate crime? One thing to call someone a name but another to punch someone in the nose, jump on them and start banging thier head on the sidewalk.
I congratulate the police of Sanford in their handling of the investigation. I find it despicable that idi ots like j@ckson and sh@rpton try to instigate riots around the country along with the left-wing media. Where is their outrage for those bl@cks who have lost their lives in Chicago alone. Perhaps those of us who believe in the USA being ruled by laws for “all” Americans should have hoodies printed with “Americans Innocent Until Proven Guilty– Elect ABO 2012″.

BOYS IN THE HOODIES
DOUSE THE FLAMES, MR. PRESIDENT!
Pat Buchanan: Why doesn’t Obama give a Tucson-type speech over Trayvon incident?
Barack Obama’s statement that the death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy that cries out for a more thorough investigation was the right and necessary thing to say.
But it fell far short of what was needed: a presidential call for a halt to the rhetoric that is stirring up racial rage and inflaming the nation. The incendiary language being deployed is both divisive and dangerous.
Addressing the Sanford, Fla., incident, black Muslim Minister Louis Farrakhan tweeted: “Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon, and very soon, the law of retaliation may … be applied.”
The New Black Panther Party has issued a “Wanted Dead or Alive” poster featuring the face of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin, and printed up a flier saying Martin was “murdered in cold blood.”
When Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad was asked if this could ignite an explosive situation that has already seen death threats drive Zimmerman and his father from their homes, Muhammad cursed and said Zimmerman “should be fearful for his life.”
Demanding “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,” the Black Panther leader offered $10,000 for Zimmerman’s capture and called for 5,000 black men to run him down.
“If the government won’t do the job, we’ll do it,” he warned.
Spike Lee helpfully tweeted Zimmerman’s home address.
Friends say Zimmerman fears for his life. One man has already been arrested for threatening to kill Bill Lee, the Sanford police chief who has stepped down and turned the investigation over to the state, the Justice Department, the FBI and a special prosecutor.
Returning from Geneva, Jesse Jackson, too, headed for Sanford, saying: “Blacks are under attack. … Targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business.” On arrival, Jackson said Trayvon Martin was a “kid shot down in cold blood by a vigilante.”
Talk-show host Joe Madison charged Zimmerman with a “hate crime.” The Grio, a black news and opinion website, compares the killing of Trayvon Martin to the 1955 murder of Emmett Till in Mississippi.
Till, 14, had flirted with a white woman. Her husband and brother kidnapped, mutilated and murdered the boy and dumped his body into the Tallahatchie River. Emmett Till was lynched.
Trayvon Martin was shot by an overzealous Neighborhood Watch volunteer who grew suspicious of an unfamiliar black man or youth in a hoodie walking at night in the rain in a gated community he patrolled.
What appears to have happened is that, after alerting police to Martin’s presence, Zimmerman followed him in his SUV – against the advice of the cops. Where the street ended, Zimmerman got out.
A fight ensued. According to two witnesses, Zimmerman was losing, flat on his back, screaming for help. It seems unlikely a 17-year-old football player like Martin, angry and in a fistfight, would be screaming for help.
Police say that when they got there, they found Martin dead and Zimmerman with a bloody nose, a cut on the back of his head and grass stains on the back of his shirt.
Did Zimmerman, on his back, losing the fight, fearing this black kid was a criminal who might beat him to death or grab his gun, fire in presumed self-defense? Did Martin, who had a right to be enraged with this character following and hassling him, start the fight?
Would Zimmerman, who carried a legal firearm, start a fistfight with an athletic black youth who was reportedly 6 inches taller?
The scenario above appears to be the one upon which Sanford police relied when they declined to arrest Zimmerman. That Trayvon’s body was taken to the morgue and identified as “John Doe” suggests that the police, too, concluded he was an intruder.
They were terribly wrong, as was Zimmerman. But to call this cold-blooded murder or an Emmett Till-type lynching appears, from the existing evidence, to be both demagogic and inflammatory.
Yet, there are questions that need answers.
Why, with a dead teenager, did the Sanford police not bring in Zimmerman and get his story on paper? Some journalists contend there are racial slurs on the tapes of Zimmerman talking to the cops. Others hear no such thing.
Zimmerman’s father calls the media portrayal of his son as a racist an injustice, and says his son has a Peruvian mother, is Spanish-speaking, grew up in a multiracial family and has many black friends.
And the clamor of the crowd – “Arrest him!” – raises a question.
Arrest him – for what?
If the Sanford police believe they have no case for murder or manslaughter or any felony, what do they charge him with, after they arrest him?
More critically, where is President Obama?
When Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot during a rampage by a crazed gunmen, Obama stepped in with a splendid address to cool the passions and call a halt to the false and fevered accusations of moral complicity in the monstrous crime of a lone killer.
Where is the Obama of Tucson now?
