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.

This kid was out so out of control his mother requested his father to take him for a few days--- the first night he's with his son who's in need of help--- he goes out all night with his girlfriend and leaves his kid in a house he's probably never been to before. I wouldn't treat my dog like that.

After the fact, Martin and the kids mother, I don't even know her name or care what her name is, are stirring up racial hatred and whipping up a mob to kill Zimmerman and make whitey pay for their disgraceful performance as parents.

When are people like you going to finally talk to blacks like adults and not keep patronizing them like they are Helen Keller who's to deaf, dumb and blind to use a knife and fork when she eats her food?

He would have been arrested.

There is a reason or reasons he has not been arrested plain and simple and that is the authorities see GZ was within the law to defend himself. HOA doesn't mean sh** if you are allowed by state law to pack especially where you live

Now CNN is saying that on the 911 tape he's saying "****ing COLD" not coons. The one we have a link to SOMEWHERE in this thread sounds like he's saying punks. Either way, they are having to backtrack like crazy on their initial coverage of this fiasco.

EDIT - you can find a link to that in post 1782

I love the little "George Zimmerman, His side of the Story" headline. Gotta be fair after all...

Even the current internet articles are still showing the pictures of Martin when he was younger and not the current pictures.

CNN ENHANCES ZIMMERMAN 911 CALL AGAIN — AND REPORTER NOW DOUBTS RACIAL SLUR USED
“Now it does sound less like that racial slur. … From listening in this room, and this is a state-of-the-art room, it doesn’t sound like that slur anymore. It sounds like … we‘re hearing the swear word at first and then the word ’cold.’ And the reason some say that would be relevant, is because it was unseasonably cold in Florida that night and raining.”

It's funny, at first it sounded like coon, then when they said it was punk I swore it was punk. I'm afraid to listen again, I know I'll end up hearing cold now.
