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.

As an adolescent, Lindh participated in IRC chat rooms. He became a devoted fan of hip-hop music, and engaged in extensive discussions on Usenet newsgroups, sometimes pretending to be an African-American rapper who would criticize others for "acting black".[9][10] The Spike Lee film Malcolm X impressed him deeply and sparked his interest in Islam.[1]

Today, Stormfront has become a prominent online forum for white nationalism, Neo-Nazism, hate speech and racism.[109][110][111] Duke has an account on Stormfront which he uses to post articles from his own website, www.davidduke.com, as well as polling forum members for opinions and questions, in particular during his internet broadcasts. Duke has worked with Don Black on numerous projects including Operation Red Dog in 1980.[112][113]

I don't get why people are supposed to be "outraged" over white on white crime. There's no national dialogue that white people are being victimized when a white person is killed, so why would it even come up in discussion?

Hmmm? Perhaps you missed this gem, back in the day.

I don't accept any group based on elevating dissimilarity. In the transcript or in the video of Dr. King's "I have a Dream" speech, I find only the need for acceptance and respect. Rodney King actually said it best: "Why can't we all just get along?"

When we all accept that we are all people of color, then we're all on the right path. My color just happens to be pinkish, with brownish freckles on it.

Hate is cheap. Respect and love cost the most. In a few months, we'll find out how cheap some of us can be.

So, we should discard the ugly side of its history and forgive and forget ? Sorry, but I'm not buying it.

Hey, it's your call, sport. You can keep that chip on your shoulder until they plant you 6 feet under, for all I care. That's the great thing about this country, each individual person, is free to make their own choices. If you want to be miserable everyday with an axe to grind, knock yourself out.

Chip on my shoulder. That's rich. Why don't you say that to a Jewish person face-to-face regarding the Holocaust and see where that will lead you.
