Sealed, and his little brother said months ago that he had asked Trayvon to pick up the Skittles for him.
It's been claimed he was buying them for his younger brother, but when was that claim actually made and by whom? I believe it was the Martin's attorney who first made the claim around March 7th when he said http://www.reuters.c...E82709M20120308
"What do the police find in his pocket? Skittles," Crump said. "A can of Arizona ice tea in his jacket pocket and Skittles in his front pocket for his brother Chad."
But I haven't seen this Chad, his "brother" actually interviewed about this. Can you provide a link?
And did Trayvon really leave the 13 -14 year old he was supposed to be babysitting all alone? Was that a responsible thing to do?
But even more significant, Martin's mom told ABC News that Trayvon was her youngest son. She saidhttp://abcnews.go.co...kouts-petition/
That was my baby, my youngest son
So who is this Chad, the 13-14 year old that both you and Crump called Trayvon's brother?
Well it turns out he's the son of the Dad's girlfriend, Ms Green.http://www.nytimes.c...?pagewanted=all
That night, for example, while his father and Ms. Green were out having dinner in Orlando, Trayvon asked Chad, Ms. Green’s son, if he wanted anything from the store.
So you don't know as much about this case as you pretend. And I'm VERY curious how the lawyer could make make such a huge mistake. He wasn't trying to influence the public, was he? And if he could get that fact wrong, what else has he said that's wrong?

Well my understanding is that the skittles were in his pocket and the can was found under him.
Wrong, that's not what the discovery said.
Well the discovery documents state that the skittles were in his pocket. And in the above Reuters link you can see that Crump told the press that the skittles were found in a pocket. So that much Crump apparently got right.
But I don't see reference in the discovery documents to an Arizona canned drink other there being a picture of a can of Arizona watermelon juice on top of the body bag. I don't find where it was found. The reuters article said Crump said a can of "Arizona ice tea" was in his jacket. But should I take Crump's word on the location when he apparently misidentified it as "ice tea"? Or were there two Arizona cans at the site of the investigation? Should I trust Crump when he didn't even know Chad wasn't Trayvon's "brother" … except perhaps in the sense that blacks call each other? Or perhaps the story (lie?) that was pushed about "Chad" hadn't quite solidified yet?

John Adams said "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Sadly, Obama and supporters are proving him right.
