Trayvon Martin...Innocent Victim or Teenage Thug?

We all watched the news, saw Reverend Al Sharpton demanding justice for Trayvon, saw the new Black Panthers offering a $10,000 reward for Zimmerman, dead or alive.  If you believed these folks, Trayvon was a saint, a innocent young black boy in a hoodie who was shot with a Slurpie in his hand...yet, from the onset their were some serious cracks in that portrait...there was evidence that Trayvon was a pot head, evidence he was a delinquent...IE, his spray painting lockers.  Yet, the press portrayed him as a innocent victim, shot getting a slurpie, while portraying Zimmerman as a out of control vigilante and bigot.

Well, seems that Zimmerman was telling the truth, seems he shot in self defense....what makes me say that?  First, medical records from the next day after the attack show that Zimmerman has two black eyes, a broken nose, and lacerations on the back of his head and neck.  Still not convinced?  Also out in the news today is the fact that Trayvon Martin's autopsy showed he had lacerations on his knuckle that would fit with wounds someone got while punching someone in the face. this point, seems like Trayvon is looking far less a victim, and much more a teenage thug that attacked the wrong person.
