center_img Given that Zimmerman’s entire defense revolved around his contention that Trayvon attacked him, it sure seems relevant if the 17-year-old was not the innocent-looking poster child in the photos almost exclusively used by the frenzied media. For the record, the photo that People magazine, among so many other outlets, used was taken when Trayvon was only 12 years old. Skip ahead to his untimely death, and he had grown to 6′ 2″ and weighed about 170 pounds. (Just for fun, here’s a photo of another famous fellow around the same age. Can you guess who it is?) Yet, the real Trayvon had been suspended from school three times, and was in fact on waivers at the time of his death. Apparently a school security officer found 12 pieces of women’s jewelry and a large flathead screwdriver in Trayvon’s locker described as a “burglary tool.”last_img
