Florida Police Sgt Ron King fired after using Trayvon Martin shooting targets during training class

A police sergeant from Cape Canaveral, Florida has been fired after it was discovered he brought two shooting targets resembling Trayvon Martin to a training session last week.

According to WFTV two officers saw the targets in the back of Sgt. Ron King’s vehicle and they informed the Chief of the Port Authority Police. King was allegedly bringing the targets to a firearms training session in Cocoa, Florida at Brevard Community College.

King had purchased the two targets from the Internet. After an investigation from internal affairs, King was fired on Thursday.

“Port Canaveral Police Department considers that behavior unacceptable,” interim CEO of the Canaveral Port Authority John Walsh said of King’s conduct.

Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida in a case that sparked national headlines.

Martin family attorney Ben Crump condemned the use of the targets.

“It is absolutely reprehensible that a high-ranking member of the Port Canaveral Police, sworn to protect and serve Floridians, would use the image of a dead child as target practice,” Crump said in a statement. “Such a deliberate and depraved indifference to this grieving family is unacceptable.”
