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 guess we didn't learn with the Duke Lacross players fiasco. The media loves to make a good story.

bullshit. Either you were fighting a 3 year old or this didn't happen. I've been jumped and got hit with a nightstick (the old wooden ones) in the head 3 times. I was ****ed up for awhile. I thought I was fine but anyone else who saw me immediately after knew I wasn't.

The teenager had some minor black marks on his record, but so did the adult Zimmerman, so thats a wash to me as well... in short, Zimmermans story sounds less plausible with each passing day imo.

Flame away, idgaf.
I felt the same way....until witnesses come out saying they saw T beating Z's ass. someone said T was defending himself. I do agree with that....but after T knocked Z down he could have left. but then...apparently...he proceeded to start smacking Z's head into the street. now T is no longer defending himself, he is now assaulting Z. now what's Z supposed to do? hope when he goes unconscious that T doesn't keep on until he kills him?

at the time I heard the audio I thought Zimmerman was guilty as shit. he very clearly says PUNK not COON. I truly don't understand why people are saying "you hear what you want to hear". it's pretty dang clear it's PUNK. the K sound is very distinct. at the time I listened, I damn well expected to hear COON. I didn't.....because that's not the word he used.

I bet you can't post a video of you getting hit in the jaw 1x from a baseball bat (being swung by someone older than 5) and being fine.

I'm sure your penis is 10 inches long too.

If an adult really hits you with a bat in the head 3 times, paramedics or the coroner are going to be picking you up.

Something I haven't seen discussed but just thought of because of the usual tough guy posers out here.

IF Trayvon was really on top of Zimmerman and pounding his head into the concrete, how in the hell does the smaller Zimmerman get to his gun, raise it while getting his head smashed, and shoot Tryavon without Trayvon knocking the gun from him or just plain taking it and shooting Zimmerman?

there are "accounts/articles" out there that claim T went for Z's gun....if that's the case....I'm guessing this happened as Z was attempting to pull his weapon on T.

I own a PF9 (the gun used) it is very small and if he didn't have GZ arms restrained it would be fairly easy to get to..

The particular gun has no safety and if you got one in the pipe it wouldn't take long. I guess if a man has both hands on your head slamming it in to the concrete, his hands were free...

Another good point
