Neighborhood watch captain shoots innocent black youth and doesn't even get arrested

http://news.yahoo.com/family-florida...044537742.html




ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - The family of a 17-year-old African-American boy shot to death last month in his gated Florida community by a white Neighborhood Watch captain wants to see the captain arrested, the family's lawyer said on Wednesday.

Trayvon Martin was shot dead after he took a break from watching NBA All-Star game television coverage to walk 10 minutes to a convenience store to buy snacks including Skittles candy requested by his 13-year-old brother, Chad, the family's lawyer Ben Crump said.

"He was a good kid," Crump said in an interview, adding that the family would issue a call for the Watch captain's arrest at a news conference on Thursday. "On his way home, a Neighborhood Watch loose cannon shot and killed him."

Trayvon, who lived in Miami with his mother, had been visiting his father and stepmother in a gated townhome community called The Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, 20 miles north of Orlando.

As Trayvon returned to the townhome, Sanford police received a 911 call reporting a suspicious person.

Although names are blacked out on the police report, Crump and media reports at the time of the shooting identified the caller as George Zimmerman who is listed in the community's newsletter as the Neighborhood Watch captain.

Without waiting for police to arrive, Crump said, Zimmerman confronted Trayvon, who was on the sidewalk near his home. By the time police got there, Trayvon was dead of a single gunshot to the chest.

"What do the police find in his pocket? Skittles," Crump said. "A can of Arizona ice tea in his jacket pocket and Skittles in his front pocket for his brother Chad."

Zimmerman could not be reached for comment on Wednesday evening at a phone number listed for him on the community's newsletter.

Crump said the family was concerned that police might decide to consider the shooting as self defense, and that police have ignored the family's request for a copy of the original 911 call, which they think will shed light on the incidents.

"If the 911 protocol across the country held to form here, they told him not to get involved. He disobeyed that order," said Ryan Julison, a spokesman for the family.

"He (Zimmerman) didn't have to get out of his car," said Crump, who has prepared a public records lawsuit to file on Thursday if the family doesn't get the 911 tape. "If he never gets out of his car, there is no reason for self-defense. Trayvon only has skittles. He has the gun."

Since Trayvon, a high school junior who wanted to be a pilot, was black and Zimmerman is white, Crump said race is "the 600 pound elephant in the room."

"Why is this kid suspicious in the first place? I think a stereotype must have been placed on the kid," Crump said.

Hadn't seen this posted but Zimmerman's lawyers have dropped him and think he has went off the deep end. Along with the special prosecutor set to make an announcement in the next 72 hours this story is about to ratchet back up again..

Heh, called it.

He is calling the prosecuting attorney directly (not through his lawyers), talking to Sean Hannity, and avoiding his lawyers. They've dumped him as a client for going off the reservation. Complete moron. He's shooting him self in the foot figuratively, it's amazing that he hasn't done the same literally.

I'm sure having your life threatened and having the media crucifying you would make many people go off the deep end.

Would you send money to Trayvon's family, even though it might just go straight into their pockets?

His lawyers said they aren't officially representing him because they haven't had contact with him in several days. So, they don't feel they can state that they're his attorney. I didn't read any attorney comments saying they dropped him because he "went off the deep end."
He hasn't even been charged. I don't know how much an attorney is going to do for him right now except charge him money.

They said they dropped him because of no contact and are afraid for his mental state. Through in the fact he tried to contact the prosecutor without his attorneys and Sean Hannity and it seems they can't control him

If the Black Panthers put a bounty on your client, why would it not be in your best interest to get out of it if you legally have the chance to do so.
