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.

Again... Involuntary Manslaughter at best, unless there is proof elsewhere that wasn't mentioned.

I'll also point out that there is no reason to simply assume this kid got indignant, but everyone is jumping to this conclusion. It's possible, but I see no reason why everyone assumes it.
Because some folks think Obama being president means the end of racism. So of course this wasn't a racist guy overacting to a black kid , because Obama is in office....the black kid had to of done something...bottom line..its Obama`s fault

I think the guy that shot someone dead is the one that has to prove the self defense, not the police or DA.

NWC approaches the kid and things get out of control quickly. Kid bows up like a beast and NWC is a pussy that can't handle a 17 year old kid. NWC gets wailed on and tries to defend himself but he is getting torn up. He fears for his life. He shoots.

Either way... NWC is a ****ing moron and caused this whole situation to happen at all. Manslaughter at the LEAST.
The guy has a brother named Chad, how hard could he be?

I'm not here to tell other people what their opinions are, nor am I going to make up my own reasons for their opinions.

I was simply stating an observation and an opinion of my own. I'm not asserting anything like you are.

Because you think I should act a certain way because we are the same race. OOOOOK bro. Again this thread should be over because the deceased was 17 and the murderer is 25. You let a ****ing 17 yr old kid beat the crap out of you? Or do you all think that since he's black, he's by default 6'3" 170. So the white guy didn't stand a chance. **** that, and **** anyone trying to make up some bullshit scenario where he isn't a murderer. If this guy doesn't get thrown in prison, Obama will be all over this shit, count on that!

Well he had a bloody nose and grass stains - there is a reason he wasn't arrested yet, his statement made sense at the time of the incident.

When I run across people on the internet who I think are "imbeciles" I generally ignore them. Why do you feel the need to follow me around and insult me ? I don't agree with me that's cool, but don't be a child about it.

Since when is a bloody nose a reason to shoot someone?

Only 2 facts we know in this: Guy walking home, guy gets shot.
