    This proves that the whole Trayvon Martin thing is one big hoax. There he is caught on surveillance video robbing a Brooklyn store after he was allegedly shot dead in Florida.. You can tell it’s Trayvon by the dark skin, the flat nose, the big boot lips and the hoodie.

    There have been over 250 thousand street muggings in the US during 2011, most go unreported and unsolved. The mugger does not live in a vacuum, he is known to those that buy his merchandise and neighbors. Rewarding snitches with a bag of dope and a pair of MJ sneakers will put a mugger in the jug. Jugger A Mugger (JAM) is a new concept, it promises to make walking the streets at night a safe experience.

    Since the Sanford FL incident, there have been multiple incidents of lawless,
    sociopathic behavior perpetrated against white and hispanic’s by blak youths in California, Michigan and Miami, FL. No major sensationialization by left wing media has been seen !
