Miami Herald Headline: ‘Trayvon Suspended Over Marijuana; Thousands Expected at Rally’

“They killed my son, now they’re trying to kill his reputation”

I’m trying to understand how this kind of headline is considered ethical journalism: Trayvon Suspended Over Marijuana; Thousands Expected at Rally.

And it gets worse; the article says George Zimmerman “thought” Trayvon Martin “looked drugged out.” This is not a quote from Zimmerman or anyone else. “Drugged out” are the words of the reporter, Frances Robles.

SANFORD, Fla — . Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school because he was caught with an empty plastic bag with traces of marijuana in it, the boy’s family attorney has confirmed.

Trayvon was killed while serving out the suspension in Sanford Florida, where his father’s girlfriend lives. A community watch volunteer who thought he looked drugged out and suspicious called police and later wound up in a fight with him.

The two scuffled and volunteer George Zimmerman shot Trayvon, killing him. He has not been charged.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to converge on Sanford on Monday for an afternoon rally to protest the killing, which occurred one month ago today.

If smoking pot is now considered a valid reason to be shot in Florida, there are a whole lot of white kids in danger down there too.

Trayvon Martin’s mother said today, “They killed my son, now they’re trying to kill his reputation.” I don’t have anything to add to that.
