On Feb. 28th, 2 days after his son was killed, Tracy Martin was thinking of suing. He hired Ben Crump to investigate the possibilities. Crump immediately contacted Natalie Jackson and the next day the leader of the local chapter of NAACP, Turner Clayton Jr. emailed Chief Lee and asked for a meeting to discuss the Trayvon Martin incident.
The family of Trayvon Martin called for Justice. How do they define Justice? It appears they define it in dollars. My definition of justice is “truth”. What is the truth of what happened that night? The family has worked hard to hide the truth of what happened. They have not been forthcoming with the public, who they pleaded with, to help them get Justice. While calling for a full investigation, Tracy didn’t tell the public he heard the tape and told the Police it wasn’t his son yelling. Before holding their press conference, the “team” took Trayvon’s online activity off-line. Tracy told the press on March 8th, he won’t help the Police get information off the phone. When Tracy learned of a witness who was alleged to have been talking to his son just before incident, he didn’t immediately inform the police. They meddled in the witness’s testimony and may have contaminated it.
The parents have fought hard to keep the truth of Trayvon’s troubled history in the dark. When they say George Zimmerman should not have gotten out of the car, they know how that may have affected their son. When Tracy realized his son was missing the next day, Tracy thought Trayvon may have gotten himself into trouble. He had Brandy call Juvenile Justice. Next he called the police to see if Trayvon had been arrested. He didn’t call hospitals or missing persons first. No, after learning his son wasn’t in custody somewhere, then and only then did Tracy call non-emergency to report his son missing. What does Tracy know about his son that he refuses to share with us?
Within a month of this incident, the family hired a team of personal injury lawyers, trademark lawyers, they started a foundation to collect donations, filed to trademark two phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon” and they launched a song on I-Tunes. The shooter’s claim of self-defense couldn’t be refuted and no arrest had been made yet.
The parents demanded a full investigation. They owe all the tax payers paying for this trial their full cooperation with the defense’s investigation. It’s clear the State is not interested in learning why Trayvon would assault someone watching him. The family attorney Mr. Crump, continues to fight being deposed about the circumstances that led to the bizarre and poorly handled interview of W8 and what if any information he has about the conspiracy of the police to not affect an arrest. We await the decision of the higher court. It’s expected next week.
Would the crowds have demonstrated if they realized the parents wanted to be paid for their son’s killing? That the parents really didn’t want to know the truth of what happened that night? They just wanted someone, anyone, to pay. A conviction isn’t needed to meet their goals. Justice is measured in dollars. They’ve already settled over a million dollars with the HOA. No one ever asked them if the evidence shows your son did attack will you apologize to Mr. Zimmerman?
It’s clear to me, the family is NOT interested in what really happened on February 26, 2012.
