Trayvon Martin, newly dead on the grass: a photo everyone should see
There's been a boatload of controversy today over the brief airing on Trayvon's lifeless body as he lay in his obviously high retail - almost preppy - clothes. Most of the grief today comes from the right who do not want you to know that Trayvon was not some thug, head covered in a hoodie and teeth full of gold.
That's why this is such an important photograph; it describes more about the incident than any testimony could. It's all right there on the grass, with the exception of Martin's only defence, a bag of skittles.
