Trayvon Martin’s Suspension from School


He was caught with a bag that contained traces of marijuana, the Miami Herald reports.

This does lend credence to one small aspect of Zimmerman’s story — that Martin caught his attention because the 17-year-old looked like he was “on drugs.” No drugs were found on Martin’s person, but so far as I can tell, the autopsy report has not been made public.

Of course, even if Zimmerman was right to find Martin “suspicious,” all that justifies is the call to the police — not the act of chasing someone who’s running away without any real evidence that they’ve done anything wrong.
