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.

Well the shooter will have to live with this for the rest of his life, along with everyone who hears the story will assume the worst.... and he still has to go through the legal process..

His life will suck regardless.

You post the same moronic stuff over and over. "White people= racist". Then some bullcrap about people hating Obama. You're a moron.
Like someone said, if you want to spaz the place up with some Obama crap take it to DC.
But my question for you is this...why the hell do you keep quoting me and chasing me from thread to thread like some shun ex girlfriend...get over yourself . You assume you really know people from a message board post...who does that ? Grow up man , the real world is tough. If you cant learn to ignore people you don't like , then I feel bad for you.....you have a nice day Blaise

Don't know the whole story obviously so there are a lot of ifs.
Yeah because the murderer was innocent, and kindly asked the kid to wait for the police in order to make sure he's supposed to be there. And then the kid thought to himself,"I got just enough time to beat this mohter****er senseless before my little brother begins to question why there aren't any skittles in his hands right now. Hehehehe prepare to taste my fists!" Ok dude. There is nothing more to know.


I don't know how many times I have to ****ing say this....the kid was 17 and the murderer was 25. You don't need to know anything else. Jesus Christ I can't stand idiocy.

And you know what, if this were the other way around, I'd STILL be saying the same shit. So don't even go there.

I would hope it would be the same..but then again, I would hope the guy would of been brought on charges too. The police excuse for not charging the guy was because he studied criminal law and was a "good guy."

This kind of logic is scary beyond belief. Truly scary.

At what age would the "murderer" put a question as to what happened in your mind?

I'm responding to people in the thread. No one's following you around. I realize you have some victim complex but give it a rest dude.
Don't get mad because you posted some nonsense and I noted that it sounded moronic. Just try and not post such stupid stuff.

Under that logic, every person who ever killed another person without a witness seeing it would have gotten away with it.

More scary logic.
