At Urban League Convention – Trayvon’s Mother Blames “Stand Your Ground” For Delinquent Son’s Death (Video)

Sabrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, spoke at the Urban League’s National Convention today.
She blamed “Stand Your Ground” laws for her delinquent son’s death.

Trayvon had been suspended three times. He was shot dead after jumping a neighborhood watchman.

The Zimmerman team argued self-defense and did not use “Stand Your Ground” laws in their defense.

Trayvon Martin was suspended from school several times.
He was caught ‘tagging‘ a door with “WTF.”
Trayvon was caught with a bag full of women’s jewelry and a screw driver.
The Miami Herald reported:

The Miami Gardens teen who has become a national symbol of racial injustice was suspended three times, and had a spotty school record that his family’s attorneys say is irrelevant to the facts that led up to his being gunned down on Feb. 26.

In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.

Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.

Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds.

Trayvon was asked if the jewelry belonged to his family or a girlfriend.

“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” he responded, according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend.
