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.

Have to wait for all the details, but I'd say it's pretty hard to say that this incident couldn't have been avoided if Zimmerman had simply not pursued Martin. Once it got beyond that though, we need all the details and facts to come out before making a judgement.
They told you not to pursue because they didn't want you to cause the pizza boy to wreck or didn't want you to wreck

You don't seriously think they are gonna tell you to follow them do you?



I have called many drunk drivers in while in my big truck going down the highway, they keep me on the phone and ask me my exact location so they can get the drunks...

I have had dispatchers tell me to flash my lights when I get to a certain mile marker to assist the cops.

Have any of the lynch mob supporters on here commented on the NBC tape edit? I would love to hear a response that justifies what was an OBVIOUS attempt to bias people. It's egregious enough that I would say it might warrant a civil suit.

That reminds me of the video where the office is chasing a guy on foot and out of nowhere a vigilante pizza dude pulls in front of the bad guy and the cop catches him. Good stuff.

They're too busy looking for rope and a suitable tree.

How trained do you have to be to watch someone and call 911 AND tell them what you saw?

Are you serious?

Gotcha.. so last year when I saw a guy bleeding out in the street, I should have just waited for the paramedics instead of stopping the bleeding. Of course the vascular surgeon told him he would have died had he lost ANY more blood but at least a non-professional wouldn't have got in the way!

You see the problem with your argument? Zimmerman saw a situation that needed attention so he did the same thing I did. He called the professionals but tried to do what he could until they arrived.

Sadly Zimmerman will probably be found dead in a ditch if he does not go in the witness protection program and have plastic surgery, thanks to the irresponsible media in this country.

Somebody will seek revenge on him....

With the Black Panthers after him and everyone else it wouldn't shock me. Although I think he has done an amazing job staying hidden while all this crap has been going on.

How are the Black Panthers not being arrested for putting a warrant on his head? Yeah they said for the capture but isn't that pushing for violence. I thought there was a law against that?
