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.

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -
North Miami Beach police said surveillance video shows dozens of high school students demonstrating in the Trayvon Martin case Friday ransacking a Walgreens store.

The incident occurred during a walkout from North Miami Beach Senior High School in support of Martin, 17, who was fatally shot in Sanford. Protesters have been calling for the arrest of George Zimmerman, 28, who has not been charged because he claimed self-defense in the shooting, according to police.

Special prosecutor Angela Corey said Tuesday that two top homicide investigators from her office worked through the weekend on the case. She investigators would be looking into the allegations that Zimmerman might have uttered a racial slur, as well as the possibility that Zimmerman's gun might have gone off accidentally, which she said investigators do in all shooting probes.

The kid was killed with a KelTec PF9, I have one of these guns... It has no safety on it but the trigger pull is very long.

I believe this gun would be very hard to accidental discharge

For the record: I'm all for bringing in Zimmerman if the facts seem anywhere close to iffy. However, all of this other BS with the rallies, claims of racism, etc. are idiotic.

I agree with you 100% , if Zimmerman killed this kid in cold blood I am 100% in favor of him going to Prison.

If this kid punched him in the nose only, he has no reason to shoot had that ended it, but if this kid jumped on Zimmerman and was pounding his head into the pavement or sidewalk, Zimmerman has the right to protect himself from vital blows that endanger his life. Although I wish he would have been able to fire a non lethal shot but I have read reports of people getting shot in the leg and hitting a major artery and bleeding to death.

Sure is what the media wants everyone to believe... Showing a picture of the kid from 5 years ago was / is a nice touch...

I'm hoping the truth comes out and is reported accurately. Once it does and IF Zimmermann is guilty, then throw the book at him. However, if he's not, no way the media can reverse the the guilty public opinion verdict they helped create. WIN -WIN for them.

Professor says Florida self-defense law not at all crazy

McGeorge law professor John Myers says the outrage against the law is misplaced. Myers read directly from the law, which states "a person is justified in using deadly force, and does not have to retreat."

Myers says Zimmerman would be free in California as well if indeed he was protecting himself from an attack.

"The law in Florida is not any different then the law anywhere else," he said. "I've heard all kinds of wild statements about the crazy law in Florida. Florida is completely mainstream when it comes to the law of self-defense."

The deadly shooting of the black teen in Sanford, Florida has led to claims of racial injustice and comparisons to civil rights abuses in Birmingham and selma alabama...in the 60s.

"If a black vigilante shot a 17-year-old white child near his father's house, he would be in jail today," the Rev. Jesse Jackson said.

But Myers says the national narrative is all wrong.

"The press often gets the law wrong, and commentators often distort the law to try and make some political point," he said.

Media Matters writer 'sorry' after blasting Drudge for Martin photo

A senior analyst with the liberal activist group Media Matters tweeted an apology on Tuesday after calling journalist Matt Drudge a racist and accusing him of using a phony photo of Trayvon Martin.
“Racist demagogue Drudge continues to run photo of some kid, not Trayvon for incitement purposes,” MJ Rosenberg initially tweeted at 10:56 a.m. ET, after drudgereport.com and other media sites posted a photo of Martin sporting a tank top, looking noticeably older and bigger than he appears in a photograph widely carried by media outlets that have reported on the story.

I'm not sure why so many people think that him being Mexican negates the race aspect. Hispanics are capable of hating black people too.

I'm not claiming its race motivated. The only thing that would hint at that is the muttered comment on the 911 call, that's hard to clearly distinguish.

I just don't get the "he's hispanic so it can't be racist" type of comments.

Him possibly saying coon has nothing to do with the case just like Trayvon being nolimit ****a has nothing to do with it either.

The usual race-baiting suspects are trying to make this a black versus white thing so they can eventually turn this into a haves versus have nots kind of thing.

White guilt is a powerful force, and they are trying to harness it.
