The Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case took another interesting turn today as Zimmerman's defense released photos and text message exchanges from Martin's cell phone. The photos show Martin blowing smoke, riding a horse, and holding a gun. With the defense releasing the photos, they're hoping to defame Martin in hopes of proving Zimmerman's claims of self defense.

The judge presiding over the case allowed the photos to be used, if they showed Martin showed a history of violence.

Here are a few of the photos released by the defense.

I'm not sure what the defense hopes to gain by showing Martin on a horse, but I didn't go to law school, so what do I know?
