Miami NT says that gangsta photo is not Trayvon Martin
Today WDBO Radio posted this image to its Facebook page. It’s a new meme, apparently, that attempts to portray Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old shot to death in Sanford last month, as a gangsta and his killer, George Zimmerman, as a clean-cut, smiling businessman. The image of Zimmerman is real, but according to this blog post from Miami New Times, that’s probably not the same Trayvon Martin. The Trayvon Martin who was shot in Sanford lived in Miami and went to Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School. The Trayvon Martin in the photo posted above, according to the Facebook profile the image was swiped from in order to inflame the debate, attends Myers Middle School — possibly in Savannah, Ga., New Times suggests.
This is the Facebook page belonging to the Trayvon Martin killed in Sanford.
