Trayvon Martin Comment Gets Woman Arrested For Threatening Kids

Trayvon Martin Comment Gets Woman Arrested

The name of Trayvon Martin was allegedly used as a threat by a woman who felt her neighbor’s two young boy were acting too noisy.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, George Zimmerman’s lawsuit against NBC claimed the media company’s employees purposefully edited audio recordings to make Zimmerman sound like he was deliberately racially profiling Trayvon, but the judge decided to throw out the case, leaving Zimmerman homeless and broke without a chance of easily raising cash to pay off his many debts.

Now, police in Fayetteville, Arkansas say the woman, named Yelena Goforth-Buyalova, told two eight-year-old boys that they “should be treated like Trayvon Martin.” The woman had called 911 to complain that her neighbors were making a racket, throwing trash on the stairs in front of her apartment, and she wanted them to move out pronto with the help of the cops.

Instead, police officers say Goforth-Buyalova made the boys cry by yelling at them and making the threatening comment using the name of Trayvon. She even screamed at the dispatcher and said that the boys “did not deserve to live in the apartments and they should be in prison because they were black.” The cops responded to the situation by arresting her, and charged her with harassment and disorderly conduct. But Goforth-Buyalova claims the police made up the comments about Trayvon Martin in their report.

Trayvon Martin Celebrated

The name of the slain man is hardly a threat in the eyes of many people. In fact, some people have erected hoodie monuments in his honor, and recently some activists have claimed the civil rights fight is not over, and Trayvon Martin and African American men in general were betrayed by the George Zimmerman trial giving a verdict of not guilty. The fight has largely focused on the controversial Stand Your Ground laws, which some say were recently extended to allow felons to use a gun to defend themselves.

Just this week, the one year anniversary of the controversial Zimmerman verdict was celebrated by protests that cried, “What do we want? Justice!” Attendees included famous stars like Kobe Bryant, who met with Trayvon’s parents, Tracy Martin, and Sybrina Fulton in order to support the Trayvon Martin Foundation. Bryant also spoke a few words to the crowd:

“When you look at Sybrina and Tracy, what they had to go through as a family and what they’ve come out of – that is true adversity. Out responsibility is more than putting a ball in a basket, but giving them the platform to voice these inspirations.”

Do you think Trayvon Martin should be considered a civil rights icon?

    Yes he should. His civil right be able to peacefully walk to the store and arrive home safely was truly violated. He was not, I repeat, he was not commiting any sort of crime, when he wss unfairly, and unjustly, racially and criminally profiled, by someone without a skill set to do this.

  2. Jaime Carolyn Pretell-Samsey

    No, he shouldn't. There is no evidence he was ever targeted because of race.

    Yeah right! We should also make 'statues' of the hoodies of the KKK too while were doing this for Martin?
    WTF is the media asking a 'racist' question like this, to feed the 'empathy' cause in the media to make things worst then they already are? God said your born and then you die, only your actions make the reason of your death.

  4. Paul Sloan

    "Do you think Trayvon Martin should be considered a civil rights icon?" I don't know… I suppose if having a history of petty crime, abusing cough suppressant, and violent assault – the last of which resulting in your own death at the hands of one of your would-be victims qualifies a person, I suppose he should.

  5. Sam Black

    He wasn't shot for walking to the store he was shot because he was attacking someone!! Blacks just want blanket protecting to commit acts of violence. How many Zimmermans were killed that night by a Trayvon and it never even made the news. How may race crimes do blacks commit every year that are literally hidden by the media.

  6. Anonymous

    I totally agree! As a former Police Officer I think Zimmerman should have listened to the dispatcher and stayed away from Martin and let the officers check him out. But on the other hand TM obviously presented himself as a possible "Signal 13" (suspicious person) in his demeanor and was worth checking out. It's just too bad it all went south like it did. If I had been Zimmerman I might have … MIGHT HAVE … followed him but at a far distance to avoid confrontation. After all, Zimmerman had no idea WHAT he was doing or if was armed.

    gtcoole, Martin left the area and returned 4 minutes later and attacked Zimmerman. Listen to the call made to the dispatcher, he remained on the line another couple minutes after he ran away..

  8. Anonymous

    Martin assaulted the wrong man that night, the race-baiting media made money by stirring up a racial fracas. I have read many pages of the evidence PDFs released by the prosecution and Martin ran away and returned to attack Zimmerman 4 minutes later. There was no crime until one of them put their hands on the other. From the injuries it is obvious who attacked whom.

  13. John Jones

    El Hajj ……..Whites are not killing as many blacks as other blacks are doing. However, most whites are not complaining. Blacks killing blacks simply decreases the welfare rolls and is also a method of population control. Now call me a racist and that will make my day.

    Im glad hes dead. And someone should trayvon martin the president too.

  16. John Jones

    ….The problem is solved. Trayvon won't be attacking any more people and I don't believe Zimmerman will be shooting anyone else. Why don't blacks let it go and concern themselves with the killings in Detroit and Chicago. I think blacks don't really care about killings unless it can give them something to complain about and get them attention. A more phony bunch of people never existed.

    I don't think you have ever been in a fight have you Paul. Where I grew up in Los Angeles, if a stranger got out of his car and chased you down in your own neighborhood, chances are you would get shot by one of the neighbors. On the street we have this thing called common sense and body language. If your body language suggests you are after me, you deserve to get beat down. Trayvon was the one defending himself how come the law does not apply to him?

  20. El Hajj

    Gregg Pierce But there one fact your punk ass hides behind a computer . because you don't have the ball to say it to a black mans face . White were the one who lived it caves check your history. and you will see who the real savages are .

  21. LuAnn Valentine

    You do not kill a human being based on their color or their past history. All those who are calling Trayvon a thug are doing so out of ignorance and the need to once again stereotype blacks as thugs and criminals. Many white kids also smoke weed, look at Colorado, and are convicted of petty crimes. Are they also likely to walk home from the store and be confronted by a man with a gun asking them why they are in that neighborhood? No I don't think so. So for all of you making comments as if that is relevant you need to sit back and look at your reasons for saying such obviously stupid remarks.

  22. Juan Robledo

    William Dohr, you are a complete moron and sorry excuse for human life. I am sure you are being monitored very carefully. Have fun with that pal.

  23. El Hajj

    John Jones Well Mr dumb ass both of your fact are wrong white commit more crime then anyone in the USA This come from the FBI Files. just because fox news reports it does not make it a fact . Another fact there are more whites on welfare the blacks . 3 to 1 this a fact .

  24. Makalani Dingane

    Apparently — Black teenagers like Trayvon going through their teenage rebellions years — doing things that many rebellious teenagers do — are incorrigible criminals whose cold-blooded murders by some white gunnuts are totally justified. Of course he should be an icon and not demonized!

  25. LuAnn Valentine

    You have no idea who he was. So what if he had a petty record and did not attend school. Trayvon is a civil rights icon because he was targeted and killed for no other reason than his race. He was committing no crime. He was approached by a strange man with a gun and defended himself. Any of you would have done the same thing. If the roles had been reversed and it was a black man with the gun he would have been arrested and tried in a NY minute and you know it.

  26. El Hajj

    Will Conyers There you dumb ass white people go again . Making a statement but have no fact to back it up 6 o'clock does not make it a fact . because white commit more crimes the black FBI file there where you get fact .white cops are not included they are criminals too .

  27. Mancave Heywood

    Yet the black panther coons can sit on a street corner and say that all white people and babies should be murdered and nothing happens, some nice racial double standard! Besides I have used that myself, I think there are millions of black youth out there that should be "tray thuged"!!

  28. Johnny Crapshoot

    El Hajj check out my yahoo comment section. i have been saying that for about two years. whites find an excuse and blast the blacks for no reason. i also agree with john jones but as you know we werent born with a silver spoon in our mouth either. blacks need parental guidance from day one but starting off with one from the day we are born and moving to none by the time we are ten makes an excuse for us. i have two kids and they have both parents like i did until i was 13 years old. my father whooped my ash.

  29. Mancave Heywood

    El Hajj WTF, yet who is always crying about wanting reparations for something that happened over two hundred years ago. Why don't you take a trip to africa moron, I'm sure you could find work in a diamond mine there!

    Amazing most of the negative comments here suggest that Trayvon deserved to die because of what he would have turned into. He is automatically not given the benefit of the doubt so you guys justify his death.

    While it may be illegal to take the first swing during a confrontation, I can tell you as a white guy on several occasions if I had waited for the agressor to hit me, I would have lost the fight.

    The situation didn't start when Trayvon struck George, it started when George made a situation out of a non-situation. George could have simply rolled down his window and asked if tTayvon needed help, instead he called 911 and automatically put him in the category of a suspect. In other words, instead of stopping a potential robbery (In Georges mind) by showing you are watching, you wait to try and catch someone in the act of robbery (again in Georges mind).

    Then we you decide to chase, your body language suggests you may be a robber or out to shoot me. And not wearing a uniform makes it worse because now you are not a cop or security guard giving chase, you are just a stranger. And in all honesty, who the fuck are you to suspect me of anything? I would sock your ass to if I had the chance because chasing me already suggest you are after me. In some areas near where I grew up, the wrong look can get you your ass beat. Let alone actually chasing someone on foot.

    Finally, if George did not have a gun he would have been able to actually fight instead of worrying about a gun being taken away from him. No I don't think Trayvon is a civil rights leader but the moment is definitely one that will be remembered in Civil Rights history. Whatever you want to argue, we all know if Trayvon was white, George would have never suspected him of anything.

  46. Nathan D Smith

    gtcoole absolutely correct!! Even the people that defend Zimmerman now they would have done exactly what you said. Called the police and let them handle it. Period. Both guys would be living life. Or hell, lets take it a step forward since people say Trayvon was a thug in training. Maybe Trayvon would actually robbed a house 3 years later and went to jail. Who knows. Zimmerman never should have gotten out of his car, armed or not. This would have never happened.

  47. Damon Hunkins

    Per the Department of Commerce, 38.9% of welfare recipients are white, 39.8% are black. Blacks only make up 12.6% of the population. Over 31% of blacks in the US receive welfare compared to 15% of whites. As far as jail/prison, the total population might be more whites but one out of every 11 black men in the US are incarcerated compared to one out of every 45 whites.

  48. Richard Stillman

    David, what case are you talking about? We know from the trial testimony that Zimmerman did not 'chase down' Martin. Martin lost Zimmerman almost immediately and made it safely home with Zimmerman nowhere in sight. We know this, because the prosecutions star witness testified to it.
    ———————————————————
    GIRLFRIEND: …He said, this man is still watching from a car. So he about to run from the back. I told him, go to his dad’s house. Run to his dad’s house.

    GIRLFRIEND: Yeah. So he said he was about to run from the back, so the next that I hear, he just run. I can hear that the wind blowing.
    PROSECUTOR: So you could tell he was running at that time? OK. And then what happened?
    GIRLFRIEND: Then he said, he lost him.

    GIRLFRIEND: So he lost him. He was breathing hard. And by the sound of his voice, his voice kind of changed.

    GIRLFRIEND: He said he had lost him and he was breathing hard and I told him ‘Keep running.’
    PROSECUTOR: So Trayvon said he started walking because he thought he had lost the guy?
    GIRLFRIEND: Yeah.
    PROSECUTOR: OK.
    GIRLFRIEND: I said, ‘Keep running.’ He said he ain’t gonna run. ‘Cause he said he is right by his father’s house.
    ———————————————————
    Martin THEN re-crossed the neighborhood to commit assault and battery and got shot committing that crime. Why do you Trayvon clingers want to pretend there was no trial? Before the trial, you were all shrieking, "ALL WE WANT IS A TRIAL!!!!"

  49. Richard Stillman

    Nathan, getting out of one's car is not illegal. Following a suspicious person is not illegal. Ignoring a 911 operator is not illegal. Nothing Zimmerman did was illegal. We know from the trial testimony that Martin lost Zimmerman and made it safely home. He then re-crossed the neighborhood in search of Zimmerman. That was also not illegal.
    .
    So, who bears the most responsibility for Martin being dead? Zimmerman for getting out of his car? Or Martin for re-crossing the neighborhood to confront Zimmerman? I've got to hand this one to Martin. Walk in the door and stay alive.

  50. Richard Stillman

    Regina, assault and battery is a crime. Martin did make it home safely and Zimmerman was nowhere in sight. We know this from Rachel Jeantel's testimony. Martin should have stayed home. Instead he re-crossed the neighborhood to confront Zimmerman, and he was shot while committing a crime, assault and battery.

    I sure hope none of you have public jobs where your managers and coworkers could look you up and read about your anger and hate. Good grief, Trayvon Martin case just shows that there is an 'open season' on black men and that black men who choose to live lives as Trayvon lived his place themselves in a 'a firing line'. We all had better learn that what goes around comes around. Ask George and OJ! As for welfare, more colored people on the rolls, but the majority of the funds go to white people. It is what it is, As for black folks, the 'rules' of society says assimilation of European thought makes life a lot easier to live in the USA. That is what it is!

    Damon Hunkins It is definitely a fact a fact that I use and they deflect any kind of response. Once you debunk them with that, it threatens the strength of their overused talking point. It also challenges their egos!! The Republican controlled South is some of their biggest culprits.

  56. Erik Monroe

    Actually, 84% of Whites murder other Whites; 92% of Blacks are murdered by other Blacks. As for "welfare rolls", you have to specifically define "welfare." Welfare is an entitlement: Under Obama, all entitlement claims have skyrocketed: disability claims, Medicaid as well as Food stamp claims….the majority of which are disability….63% of which have been claimed by Whites.

  57. Nathan D Smith

    My question is why do George Zimmerman defenders view Trayvon Martin as a violent person and killer? Was that apart of his history or something? He wasn't the one with the weapon. Started a fight possible, Yes. George was the one that took a gun to the possible confrontation I don't get it.

  58. Courtney Carden

    cause they went into his past, pulled up his online postings, he got into a fight, he had been suspended for smoking weed. all things that george zimmerman didn't know on the night he followed and killed this child

    The comments on here about TM and black people in general are exactly the "reason" and "proof" of racial profiling and prejudice that "still" exists in this country. While I don't believe that GZ had it in his mind to track down and kill, it is very clear that he was "over-zealous", "irresponsible", and should have been held accountable in the death of TM. GZ lied about how the events transpired that night. He had a gun and two flashlights, and clearly wanted to end what he thought was another thief in his neighborhood, probably by trying to make a citizens arrest, when he echoed the sentiment, "these a–holes always get away". The evidence is clear, that TM ran from GZ and GZ pursued him, "armed". GZ "says" that TM approached him, but there is no evidence that suggests that, besides GZ's own account, which I don't trust, since he lied to the police when they asked him why he was following TM and he replied by saying he wasn't, until they told him they had his own confession on the 911 call that he was, in fact, following TM. This guy had two flashlights, and that is consistent with someone who is "searching". Rachel testified that after TM ran, the call went dead, and she called him back; when he answered, she said he was speaking in a "whisper", so as not to be detected, and said, "I think I lost him". Yes, TM was in hiding and this is consistent with GZ's account and Rachel's testimony, but what we don't have is who approached who first! If TM told Rachel, "I think I lost him", and GZ had flashlights, I'm betting that it was GZ who found what he was looking for and TM had no choice but to defend himself from a man who followed him in his car, gave chase on foot, and found him when he was hiding from him! You do the math!!!

You worship that fat lying pig! Just because of your indifference to Blacks. He lied about not knowing the name of the street, although it's his neighborhood. That's the bullsh** reason he gave for getting out of the car. He lied about how he was confronted. His injuries were minor and he exaggerated about it. He refused further treatment as well. I have more that will take up too much of my time. If! There is a civil suit filed he will have to testify and then! His lies will be exposed. You are the moron! You hero worship a fat, lying, murdering pig! P.S. The article says he's broke and homeless. Why don't you help your boy out? Or better yet, buy his bullsh** art!

Harassment definitely though for sure. I assume she will be filing charges for false arrest. However, I would think she knew she stretched the boundaries with the kids here. Unless there are some type of proof these kids are thugs too of course. Do you think this is the right thing to say to kids that are doing things that kids do John?

  84. Donna Maurillo

    Should he be a civil rights icon? Not really. Should Zimmerman be free? Not at all. Here's what I don't get. He said his gun was holstered in his belt in the small of his back. He said Trayvon was on top of him, beating the back of his head into the ground. He said that Trayvon then saw the gun and tried to grab it, so Zimmerman had no choice but to draw and shoot. How on Earth could Trayvon have seen the gun in Zimmerman's belt if Zimmerman was on his back and Trayvon was on top of him? The kid would need x-ray vision. Every cop I know has told me that it was likely that Zimmerman had the gun drawn first and then Trayvon hit him.

    I even read news stories that said Trayvon was a drug user who was strung out. But when I read the autopsy report, it said no such thing. It said he had a small "trace" of THC, but that's all. A "trace" could come from smoking a few days earlier, or it could come from being in contact with some one who was smoking. There was nothing else to indicate the drug use that so many accuse him of.

    Zimmerman was no angel himself, if you want to compare backgrounds. He had a history of violence, and even his girlfriend had a protection order against him.
