UPDATE: CONFIRMED !
Treeper Diwataman, has done an amazing job deconstructing the video evidence and now uncovered a considerably interesting aspect of Trayvon Martin’s visit to the 7-11 by using the raw feed video from the evidence release, not the media edited versions.
Trayvon checked out from “his” purchase at 6:24. But as this video highlights he didn’t leave right away. About a minute after he walks out, 3 other rather dubious characters walk in. After they make their purchases and leave at 6:29 Trayvon is seen walking away outside the building. (*The narrator of this video is not associated with the Treehouse, he is an independent U-Tube video guy, and yes, he curses at the end. Sorry)
So what was Trayvon waiting outside for? And what did Trayvon and the 3 stooges coordinate after they left? Why did he wait around outside for approximately 5 minutes after he exited the 7-11? Obviously “occams Razor” would infer that he got something from one or more of the 3 stooges and then headed home.
Indeed in watching the video, it does appear that Trayvon is walking away partially backwards while departing with a farewell of sorts. Curious.
As far as what he asked Curly (the white guy – one of the 3 stooges) to buy. That question appears answered in the following video. Curly is holding the two bills that Trayvon held in his hand when he exited the building. Curly buys a blunt for Trayvon, and one more, presumably for himself, then after a pause he buys another and then heads outside while Moe (wearing a hoodie like Kenny from Southpark) makes his purchase with a debit card. Apparently while Moe is paying, Curly is outside giving Trayvon the Blunts.
Blunts are cigars that can be hollowed out ready to be filled with ”Weed”. They are available at just about any gas, or convenience station and used by marijuana smokers instead of rolling papers.
Trayvon’s “blunt use” was well known to his friends, and close circle, some of them even posted pictures in memorial of Trayvon after his death as captured below courtesy of Wagist:
Here is a video from Diwataman putting the entire thing together:
So lets recap what we know factually:
When checking out Trayvon put two dollar bills in his hand carrying the bag.
Trayvon finished his purchase at 6:24 and left the store.
A minute later, 6:25, Larry, Moe, and Curly enter the store.
Curly has two dollar bills in his hand, and initially buys two Blunts.
Curly decides to buy another blunt and goes into his own wallet for more money.
Curly leaves the building around 6:28 while Moe is checking out.
50 Seconds Later at 6:29 Trayvon is seen walking back toward the Retreat at Twin Lakes saying something in parting to someone standing near the enterance door.
At 6:30pm (according to phone records) Trayvon calls “DeeDee” back. Presumably while en route back home. Trayvon had his hands-free phone ear buds on when he left. The Retreat is less than a half mile away. The actual Brandy Green Townhouse is .60/mile away.
Approximately 35-40 minutes after Trayvon leaves the 7-11 George Zimmerman sees Trayvon entering the retreat via the walk through “shortcut”. At 7:09 George Zimmerman calls police while watching Trayvon at/near the “Club House”.
Trayvon is shot at 7:17pm according to the shot heard on the 911 call tapes.
It took Trayvon 40 minutes to walk less than 1/2 mile from the 7-11 (6:29pm to 7:09pm) to the clubhouse while talking to DeeDee?
The Skittles and Watermelon Juice were found on Trayvon’s body when he was shot, but not the blunts.
The hands-free phone ear buds were in his pocket when he was shot, as was the button he was wearing.
- It took Trayvon 40 minutes to walk the distance between the 7-11 and the Clubhouse because he paused to roll the blunts, and maybe smoke one.
- Black urban street kids familiar with the kind of lifestyle Trayvon led DO NOT run from “white-Hispanic” dude strangers sitting in pick-up trucks; they run from one thing, THE LAW.
- Trayvon thought GZ was security, a cop, or was about to bring the law into the picture; and that’s why he walked over and checked out the car. He recognized Zimmerman was on the phone reporting “him”.
- After circling the SUV, and considering that “authorities” were en route, Trayvon took off running to ditch any contraband either at home, or nearby.
- He probably made it home because he told DeeDee on the phone he was “at his dads house”.
- After he ditched the contraband, he told DeeDee “he was not running” no more and went to confront the guy he saw getting out of his truck.
- Trayvon prepared by putting his loose items in his pockets readying himself for a confrontation if needed, (ear buds, button from hoodie, etc). [question? was the button vulgar?]
- Trayvon was considerate of the potential for Police to already be there, he also knew Dad and Girlfriend were not home. This could be potentially worrisome if police questioned him. Removing the button, ditching the contraband, etc allowed him to present himself visually as no issue.
- Keeping the Arizona Watermelon and Skittles on him provided him something to point too as reference if questioned about whereabouts by the police.
- If busted for being “under the influence”, or he couldn’t shake off the cops Q&A successfully, better to be away from the house. Dad/Brandy ain’t there, Trayvon was already in trouble for drugs at school, and this could potentially be trouble.
- If he couldn’t talk his way out of anything, better to be away from home base.
- Trayvon headed back up the pathway toward the “T” where the sidewalks meet, near witness “John’s” townhouse.
- If the cops were there he could play it off as an overzealous white dude calling the police on him for no good reason. Mix in some faux-racist outrage and turn the conversation onto Zimmerman Profiling him for calling the cops.
- But the cops were not there. Yet.
- When he saw Zimmerman he began the conversation by saying “hey man, what the f**k’s your problem, what the f**k you looking at”?
- Zimmerman responded tennatively, somewhat fearful, somewhat like an “uh-oh” reaction, blew off the initial confrontation from Trayvon, and reached for his phone again to call the police.
- Frustrated and feeling profiled for no-good-reason, (mindset “what you wanna call the cops on me for”?… this busy body Zimmerman is bringing grief for nothing. He should mind his own damn businesss.) In his mind, and in actuality, Trayvon was no threat to anyone. This dude calling the cops on him just pissed him off. Part anger mixed with a high dose of frustration.
- It went downhill from there.
That scenario is speculation, but does fit the timelines and physical evidence known.
