Trayvon: Iced Tea and Skittles not such an innocent teenage purchase

Lean, a hip hop culture, street thug concoction made from Watermelon drink, Skittles and codeine


"One of the recipes for “lean” calls for using Arizona Iced Tea Co. watermelon fruit juice cocktail as the beverage of choice, and Skittles candy… the items found on Trayvon Martin’s body the night he was shot by George Zimmerman."


6:22 

Trayvon, with his hoodie up, grabs two items from the shelves of 7-11.  One is the Skittles.  The other is Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail.  The media avoid the name of the real drink -- possibly because of the racial implications of the word "watermelon," but possibly to avoid probing the real reason for Trayon's trip.

Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as "Lean," also known in southern hip-hop culture as "Sizzurp" and "Purple Drank."  Lean consists of three basic ingredients -- codeine, a soft drink, and candy.  If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011.  

On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, "unow a connect for codien?"  He tells the friend that "robitussin nd soda" could make "some fire ass lean."  He says, "I had it before" and that he wants "to make some more."  On the night of February 26, Trayvon had just bought the mixings for one "fire ass lean" cocktail.

Judge Zimmerman,

"Let's see a watermelon fruit drink, Fruit-favored candy, and maybe something else too, ok kid you need to come in quietly ... if you don't ... well, you have just one chance ... well by the power invested in me by me and for me, you have been found guilty and your punishment is death."

Sorry, I don't buy it ... getting legally brought items from the store legally is a crime nor should it be punishable by death.

He is dead because he attacked someone he didn't know and lost, that's it.

Act like a thug, smoke and sell drugs like a thug, drink like a thug, talk like a thug and we are supposed to believe he didn't attack Zimmerman "Like a thug"

Seems to me Trayvon lived like a thug and he died like a thug 

Kids like Trayvon live an die like thugs everyday in Chicago. Over 50 killed and injured over the weekend of the 4th. The only real difference here is that in Trayvons case, the thug got shot by someone who wasn't black so I guess that makes this thug more important

 Your post says," one of the recipes" for lean. One of the recipes, and I ain't buying this.
