The many inconsistencies from Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s dad, regarding the night Trayvon was shot have been puzzling for many, myself included. Previous puzzling false claims include:
- What time Trayvon left home (multiple accounts)
- What time he and Brandi arrived home (at least 3 different versions)
- Where he/Brandi were on the night Trayvon was shot (2 versions)
- Where he thought Trayvon was, and why he didn’t look for him (2 versions)
- The whole “Trayvon” sitting on the porch story (told twice)
- Telling police during the missing person report that he saw Trayvon at 8:00 to 8:30pm on the night he was shot at 7:27pm
- Brandi Green “Step mom”, then “girl friend”, then just “friend” etc. Now? nothing ((crickets)) she has vanished. But she is still listed on Tracy’s facebook page as “in a relationship” with pic.
- Unwilling to give police Trayvon cell phone password until he talked to Ben Crump attorney
But perhaps, the confusion is because of the cultural disconnect. Perhaps Tracy Martin was just scared of telling the truth, and when you lie, well, sometimes it is difficult to keep track of what you have stated.
Obviously Trayvon Martin was headed in a really dangerous place. Multiple School suspensions, vandalism, vulgarity, theft, burgulary, multiple drugs used, aggression – street fights-, drug dealing and generally a Thug Lifestyle. This is not disputed, it is factually evident.
But how does it all add up to a detached set of parents with little to no actual knowledge of his personality / lifestyle? And does it matter if he was a dope smoking, fire ass lean drinker at the time of the encounter with George?
Perhaps, given the history of spiral that Tracy was obviously fully aware of; and given the understandable inability of his mother, Sybrina, to control his descent into all things thuggishly worshipped, there was bound to be lies and disconnects all based their real-life and understandable fear. Let’s assume that Brandi’s son “Chad” was indeed home with Trayvon when Tracy and Brandi left home that afternoon of Sunday February 26th.
Tracy and Brandi went out leaving the “boys” Chad (14) and Trayvon (17) home alone with pizza money for dinner. Trayvon and Chad ate around 4:30 – 5:00 pm with delivered pizza. (what pizza places were checked? if any) Then Trayvon smokes some weed on the porch, maybe Chad too, or maybe Chad just sees him smoking; perhaps Trayvon has some sizzurp or at least finds the Robitussin. Then Trayvon decides to head to the store for more Watermelon Fruit Juice and Skittles to make a batch of “Lean/Drank”.
Trayvon tells Chad he’s headed out. And never returns. Or did he return briefly to drop off the cigars attained from the stooges, and drop off the weed before headed back up the walkway to confront the damn nosey idiot following him.
Perhaps Tracy was just scared to admit to the cops the next day that Trayvon was last seen by him in the early afternoon. So he said 8 or 8:30pm just to cover his ass for leaving the kids home alone. The stuff he saw on the porch was stuff that made him know Trayvon had at some point been out there. In the news footage of Tracy and Brandi the following day they seemed more confused than angry. They were just piecing it together in their mind based on what they knew was around.
Remember it was not until Tuesday 2/28 that Tracy actually went to the Sanford Police Station. He talked to the police earlier in the day Monday, made the positive ID, and then was waiting to go to the SPD the following day. Remember too that Sybrina never left Fort Lauderdale, she stayed home until well into March. I think her first trip to Sanford post shooting was after March 8th, almost two weeks later.
Consider this FaceBook entry from Tracy Martin in 2010 the link was shared in a thread yesterday. Obviously the trouble with Trayvon had been going on for a while. We know from Trayvon’s own words he was heavy into drug use by June 2011, but this entry is 8 months earlier than that:
