Trayvon Martin was seemingly the owner of a very ugly Twitter account. He was suspended from school at least four times, and his mother, Sybrina or Sabrina Fulton was quick to file for trademarks for her son’s name. She will likely be fighting Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton for that right. But wait…Obama 2012 is hawking hoodies for campaign cash.
Trayvon Martin was suspended from school for writing graffitti on a school locker – “wtf.” When a school official looked through his backpack, he found 12 pieces of jewelry (women’s rings and earrings), plus a watch and a large flathead screwdriver which the school report described as a “burglary tool.” The school took the jewelry from Martin, as he said it belonged to a friend. That was the FIRST or SECOND SUSPENSION, according to the Miami-Dade school system. A third suspension for tardiness and truancy was on his list of misdeeds. In February 2012, four months after the suspension for grafitti, and after the school took the jewelry found in his backpack, he was suspended again for “getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana,” – One of these suspensions took him from his mother’s home in Miami Gardens, Florida to his father’s home in Sanford, Florida.
MARCH 26–The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show.
Sybrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton, 46, is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.
The March 21 USPTO applications, each of which cost $325, were filed by an Orlando, Florida law firm representing Fulton, whose first name is spelled “Sabrina” in the trademark records.
It’s believed that the handle @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA was Trayvon’s Twitter account, and that the above photo is of Martin. The account no longer exists, but The Daily Caller seems to confirm that it was his account – many more Tweets here.
