    We have a media who has completely sold to the world that Trayvon was 17 years of age when he died, when he was actually 16 years and about 4 months old -- meaning he was actually closer to fifteen than he was to 17
    I have seen nothing to corroborate this.

    He was nearly 1 month past his 17th birthday when he was killed (I do not say "when he died"; he did not merely "die").

    Global warming & smoking cigarettes = Nothing to worry about? Those who deny climate science are ignorant, evil or worse. Google Fred Singer.

    •  I watched the prosecutions closing (0+ / 0-)

      argument and that is what he said.  My friend and I were shocked.  I turned to her and asked why was the whole world reporting that he was 17?  

      Now the prosecution could have been mistaken, but that's a big damn mistake to make in closing arguments.
