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.

I tend to agree. No one really saw what happened between them so it is one man's word against a dead guy's word.

The manufactured spin explained. I sorta lost interest when Sharpton and Jesse got face time on TeeVee. Thats a sure sign that some money is gonna be made and the entire thing is baseless.
to the extent that the entire thing is based on some claim of racism on the part of zimmerman, it does look baseless at this point...

i'm not sold that the police investigation was wanting because of race either, it's a small town force and they might not be state of the art when it comes to homicide investigations...

and you're right of course that there is money to be made, at least by the family for wrongful death suits (if not barred by the stand your ground law on some novel legal theory)...

all in all, based on the available evidence it looks like somebody died over a fistfight...

regardless of who did what and why and when, it's a damned shame that someone had to die over this...

This has the stink and feel of the Duke Lacrosse fiasco all over again. The Marxist Media and all the Progressive Haters(a la Al "I hate white people" Sharpton ect...) come out in full force before all the facts our known and end up making asses out of themselves.

Oh BTW our President jumped the gun 3yrs ago before all the facts were out and ended up having to have a beer with a white cop because he indirectly called him a racist by using the term "stupidly"

The facts are a badge less Barney Fife (by the way probably a better choice for your avatar selection) decided to stalk a kid on his way home who had done nothing wrong, an altercation started and he shot the kid dead. Now he claimed self defense and was set free. This was over a month ago.

This would have been a one or two day LOCAL story had more than just a cursory investigation taken place before releasing the guy. The shooter had a history of assault on a police officer and they just take his word?

If you look for racism you will find it. Unless other evidence comes out that Zimmerman put his hands on or tried to stop Treyvon but some other form of physical means I am very certain he is going to either never be charged or if he is the judge will probably throw it out.
You do know that the YouTube you linked to has the title "Zimmerman clearly said fuking cqqns" right?

I guess she has to make up for the lost welfare check.

Someone probably told her that if she didn't, someone else would. I doubt she initiated the process.
I wouldn't be crazy about seeing some guy who didn't even care about my kid marketing T-shirts with his face on it if I were her, so she may as well control the process. If someone told me, "You can either copyright this or some dude with a website in Ohio is going to first," I'd probably be inclined to do the same.
