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.

If I was boxing, then yea it would be sloppy. For street fights where the point is to end the situation as fast as possible and without injury, not so much.
You sound like a real badass... Ooooo I get all tingly just thinking about it.

It happened really fast and it was all a blur. I'd like to say I went all Bruce Willis on em but basically I had my ass on the ground and wallet gone in 10 seconds.

I don't consider myself a pussy, I just don't see much point in fighting. Never have.
It's all about knowing when fight and when to walk away. It's not an issue of being pussy or not. It took me getting hit with a nightstick and stomped by 3 guys to learn that lesson.

I haven't been in a fist fight in over a decade. I've been close several times but generally the other party decides against it. I'm the type that won't start shit but I'll finish it if someone wants to take it there.

It's not about being a badass, ****stick. I'll be the first to admit, I've gotten my ass kicked more than once. I grew up in a violent neighborhood. I've seen what fighting "fair" or by "rules" gets you. (Hint hint it's usually not good). I've learned from my experiences. You, OTOH, are a raider's fan who thinks it's "badass" to put his makeup on at the same time as his wife and talk tough on Chiefs Planet.

But like I said to Radar, punching nonstop until the fight is over (if you know how to throw proper punches) will end the fight with you being the victor 9 times out of 10. Most people in this world have no idea of how to fight or how to react to being rocked in the face. Most people are soft (which is why I get a chuckle out of the psuedo tough s out here)
I get a chuckle out of your repetitive "psuedo tough guys" comments, some maybe warranted, others certainly not. waddya think, maybe 10 or so in this thread? guys like you that try to talk others down and talk yourself up....my guess is you couldn't whip your way out of a wet paper bag.

It’s the Affliction t-shirt. Because when he does his ripping it off psych-out routine he’s actually tattooed just like that.

please point to wherever I said I was a bad ass. I've been in a few fights. won some and lost some. I was pointing out to several of the dumbasses that if trayvon had attacked zimmerman like he asserted then there would be trauma to his hands which the funeral director said there was no such trauma and the usual circle jerk of retards in dc tried to turn it into me saying I was a bad ass which is no where close to what I originally said. but feel free to keep making shit up.
