First listen to Trayvon’s Mom, Sybrina Fulton, describe Trayvon. Do you get the sense of how close they were? How well she knew him? Or perhaps what she knew “about” him. Watch and decide for yourself. Then read on…
Miami Herald Interview March 16th
This is a collaborative effort from Treeper LH Laredo and Myself - I have a daughter and son about the same age as Trayvon and if he’s like any other teen, like mine are, a parent needs to learn how to read between the lines with them.
Modern social websites provide a place where kids can engage with their friends, their circle, their crew, in a manner that expresses their sense of themselves and their individuality, as well as how they desire to be perceived by others. A lot can be learned about a teenagers value system, and what their aspirations are, by looking specifically at what they are interested in.
For example if you go through your child or teenager’s computer you’ll find on the surface mostly non important or innocent looking videos or searches. But that’s just the illusion.
At this age, 15 to 17, they are very cynical about parents or adults finding out what they are up to. Depending on the level of parental engagement they may hide things, or they may know ways to engage with their on-line community their parents have no idea about because on the surface it seems innocent. Perhaps such is the case with Trayvon Martin.
For instance if you look at Tray’s U-Tube account you’ll notice nothing that would indicate his lifestyle interest would be. Now that the fight videos are removed the only videos immediately visible are from three downloads he created. One made two years ago of a small boy outside his Mom’s yellow house in Miami Gardens. Another two are downloads of songs and re-mixes. Innocent enough.
But you need to look a little bit closer, beyond the surface, look into his subscriptions, where the feed label is. That’s where you’ll find his interests. That is the stuff he chose to follow, and review.
No-one else placed him in the position of those choices; these are simply honest reflections of what he viewed as interesting to his lifestyle and how he wanted to express himself to his community as he matured into adulthood.
For example if you look at Arm wrestling brother subscription for to trujillodragonhulk, on the surface again it seems innocuous. But it basically deals with underground fighting, and MMA style street fights. Go check it out. It looks like it became an interest to Trayvon around the time he had a signficant growing spurt, about a year ago. The subscription highlights fighting styles, and “how to” type street matches. In addition there are multiple videos of actual street fights. Trayvon obviously was highly interested in this as reflected in his subscription to the MMA street fighter’s account.
Another example would be the taylorgangent subscription. This subscription began shortly before the MMA Street fighter one. Again, a little more than a year ago. But this one is a little more than concerning.
That subscription basically deals with the pot culture and use. Weed, dope, Marijuana, and the lifestyles that associate with it.
The articles, links, videos and discussion formats all talk about Pot use and the culture that associates with it. It is rather raw and descriptive, and presents some of the more dangerous social elements surrounding a lifestyle of “getting high”, and partying.
Lastly the most innocent subscription of the all the “baby in the trunk one” for AMilonakis, is perhaps the most concerning. This one is heavily subscribed to, and pretty well-known by teenagers living a lifestyle of a very specific type of drug use.
With a following of over 121,000 subscribers, the AMilonakis channel is a daily video log of a guy, looks like a kid, but he is officially 92 years old according to his u-tube profile. Anyway, this “Kid” is living a life of drug use, specifically (purple lean/sippin sippin), a very popular type of drug use in urban teen circles.
Trayvon began following this subscription in July of 2011 according to his U-Tube account.
Purple Lean (Drank) is an intoxicating beverage also known by the names lean, sizzurp, and liquid codeine. It is commonly abused by southern rappers and wannabe suburban teenagers. It is a mixture of Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup and sprite, with a few jolly ranchers and/or skittles thrown in.
Promethazine with codeine, consumed in such large amounts as is popular with such southern rappers as lil wayne, slim thug, and Big Moe, produces an opiate-like high that is potentiated by the Promethazine.
Promethazine by itself will not produce a high. The beverage must be sipped slowly, and not guzzled, in order to avoid unconsciousness and/or life threatening overdose.
Some of you right about now are saying HOLY SMOKE….. Well I promise you, this ain’t nothing yet. Consider this post just a precursor, or warm-up for something that is going to explain a lot about the events surrounding the night of February 26th.
We are finishing up some exhaustive research, that will shed a new light into the “state of mind” for Trayvon Martin on that Sunday night, and will most certainly raise the demand for the release of the so far withheld toxicology report.
Go back and look at the 7-11 video’s again. And Stay Tuned for an explosive Part 2
