The Mysterious Death of Russian Mystic Rasputin
According to legend, Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin (1869-1916) was first poisoned with enough cyanide to kill ten men, but he wasn’t affected. So his killers shot him in the back with a revolver. Rasputin fell but later revived. He was shot again three more times, but Rasputin still lived. He was then clubbed, and for good measure, thrown into the icy Neva River. Since his body was never recovered, without an autopsy, the cause of death was never proven. Some say he survived the river and was reported being seen in various parts of Europe.

Photos from Trayvon Martin’s phone. Seems like he was a good guy.
It doesn’t matter whats on his phone. What matters is what he had in his hands. Which was nothing more than iced tea and skittles. The killer was told to not pursue him but he did anyways. He chased him down and when the kid felt threatened by a random man chasing him he turned around and got shot.
It doesn’t matter that he did drugs or had a picture of a gun on his phone. The man that shot him knew nothing about that at the time.
Actually, it’s coming out that Zimmerman was told not to follow Martin and he said “OK” and turned to go back to his truck. Martin followed Zimmerman and confronted him. A struggle occurred and Zimmerman ended up on his back getting his face bashed in against the concrete. He pulled his gun and fired once. Martin sat up (on top of Zimmerman) and said “Oh shit” and rolled over and died.
Doesn’t change the fact that Martin was unarmed, but it gives context to the situation.
