Serisouly, how far are they going to drag this shit out? Trayvon Martin’s Hoodie Eyed for Smithsonian Exhibit! What about everything going on that really matters to YOUR LIFE!

While Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump demands a Florida judge revoke George Zimmerman‘s bond because of $200,000 raised on a website, Trayvon Martin’s parents and legal team are spending millions of dollars in donations on lavish trips, celebrity meet-and-greets, and expensive legal counsel. To date, estimates put the amount of money raised by the Martin family in the millions.
The hooded sweatshirt Trayvon Martin wore the night George Zimmerman shot him to death could end up on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
The shirt became a powerful symbol of the case after Zimmerman described Martin as wearing a “hoodie” the night he killed the teen, claiming self-defense. Protestors across the country wore hoodies in support of Martin as they called for Zimmerman’s arrest, prosecution and conviction.
Prosecutors had introduced the famed hoodie into evidence during the trial. A hush fell over the Seminole County courtroom as they displayed it for the court.
The jurors weighing Zimmerman’s guilt were still and attentive while looking at the sweatshirt, according to reports from the day. One juror lifted out of her seat to get a better look at the hoodie, and the group tracked the sweatshirt as Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, moved it away from the jury box.
The hoodie is now stored with other evidence from the case at the U.S. Department of Justice, which has opened an investigation into whether Zimmerman violated Martin’s civil rights.

But the power and symbolism of the hoodie could be available for legions of visitors to an iconic Washington, D.C., museum.
The director of a new branch of the Smithsonian, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, told the Washington Post he would like the museum to acquire the piece of history for its permanent collection.
“It became the symbolic way to talk about the Trayvon Martin case,” Lonnie Bunch told the Post. “It’s rare that you get one artifact that really becomes the symbol.  >>more<<

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
