“He was simply bringing the soon-to-be iconic iced tea and Skittles home to his “little brother.”
Side note: he was not buying tea, rather he was buying Watermelon punch and Skittles, which are two main ingredients, with (DXM) cough syrup such as Robitussin in making an intoxicating drink called “Lean”. This drug concoction is associated with psychotic breaks and paranoia in large doses.
Had Trayvon Martin been drinking Lean when he encountered George Zimmerman?
This story was pure fable from the beginning, and the attorneys knew it. Even before going public, they moved to seal Martin’s school records, and with good reason. Consider this exchange between Martin and a female friend on November 21, three months before his death. After he told her he was “tired and sore” from a fight, she asked him why he fought. “Bae” is shorthand for “babe.”
MARTIN: Cause man dat nigga snitched on me
FRIEND: Bae y you always fightinqq man, you got suspended?
MARTIN: Naw we thumped afta skool in a duckd off spot
FRIEND: Ohh, Well Damee
MARTIN: I lost da 1st round 😦 but won da 2nd nd 3rd . . . .
FRIEND: Ohhh So It Wass 3 Rounds? Damn well at least yu wonn lol but yuu needa stop fighting bae Forreal
MARTIN: Nay im not done with fool….. he gone hav 2 see me again
FRIEND: Nooo… Stop, yuu waint gonn bee satisified till yuh suspended again, huh?
MARTIN: Naw but he aint breed nuff 4 me, only his nose
As his social media accounts show, Martin was a student of mixed martial arts. The fight followed the MMA format. A day later, he would tell a friend that his opponent “got mo hits cause in da 1st round he had me on da ground nd I couldn’t do ntn.” As his girlfriend complained, Martin was “always” fighting. He was also something of a sadist. His opponent, after all, did not bleed enough. Why might this be relevant?”
