So Martin had Skittles and Iced Tea. I have heard that over and over and over again. How ridiculous is it to think that because someone was carrying a bag of Skittles that they are incapable of perpetrating violence on another?

The 'Skittle Angle' was played-up by the MSM to imply TM was just a little kid skipping merrily thru the neighborhood before he was shot to death by a 'racist vigilante' simply because he was black.

Of course, recall that the 'Broken Nose/Lacerated Scalp angle' was suppressed by that same MSM. Didn't fit the narrative that he was 'just a kid out for a walk'. Never mentioning the kid was nearly 6 ft tall.
