MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Dozens are expected to gather this weekend in remembrance of the late Trayvon Martin whose death sparked a national debate over the controversial Stand Your Ground law.
Martin, 17, was killed in Sanford, in February 2012. George Zimmerman was acquitted in his shooting death in July 2013.
Locals, family and friends of the Florida teen are expected to join in the events planned through the weekend.

This is a card that I found at a gas station a couple of days before the event, the same way they try to buy junk cars or the local whiz kids swears he can fix your computer.
Trayvon is/was an event outside his Miami Garden Neighborhood and pretty much Florida followed suit. There was never a parade of friends, teachers, relatives, etc that came out to say how good a kid he was or how good he did a school. That vacuum of endorsements was always suspicious, but the Media and the Politicians ignored it.
Other than his immediate family, pretty much nobody cared for the guy. he was only a prop against Stand Your Ground and that failed miserably. He will be brought out from time to time like one of those cheesy ornaments you see in houses that celebrate any half-assed holiday just to try to rile up the “true believers” but other than that, his name has acquired the relevance of a plastic pink flamingo.

Straight SD shooting, not SYG. That is how stupid the gun grabbers are.
That there actually is a significant plurality of people who deem this dead thug worth “remembering” (other than as the poster child of how NOT to behave) is disturbing, indeed.
You could say “he was only a prop against Stand Your Ground” that “flopped” at the slightest breeze because it had no “support”.
Also, “dozens”? Man, thousands rioted in support of Michael Brown! Hell, hundreds assembled in support of George Zimmerman, fer cryin’ out loud! But we’re supposed to get excited about dozens in support of Trayvon(tm)?
That’s like saying the Demanding Moms had a “massive groundswell of support” when they picketed the NRAAM! 😉
Somebody tell me where all these ‘supporters’ were when TM or MB were alive?
