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.

Some might perceive the extreme venom as hate, but if they did listen more they would hear Beck constantly tell people to avoid violence and use peace.

What did Jesus say to the lost who refused to listen and reject His truth of salvation?

"Let the dead bury the dead".

Now in now way am I comparing GB to Christ but I think everyone gets my point. Truth is truth and absolute regardless of who speaks truth. But as Christ said to the disciples going to each town evangelizing, "To those that reject your message of my salvation for them, shake the dust off your feet and move on to the next town."

Your problem is 'lack of vision' wearing those pop bottle Obama glasses only seeing the 'Obama insignia' at every turn. You have gone waaaay beyond the so-called 'rose colored glasses'.

This "assumption" is unlike most of the assumptions that I've criticized. Zimmerman said he was going to the store and unless he was actually out hunting for someone to kill (and not even the prosecutor thinks this was premeditated), there's no reason for him to lie about why he was out that night. If he was patrolling for the neighborhood watch, there's no reason for him to say otherwise. By the same token, I'm willing to accept as fact that Trayvon went to the store to buy skittles and tea and that he was unarmed.

In fact, these guys have a greater responsibility to exercise a degree of care because they are trained to know the procedures.

The HOA and the police KNEW Zimmerman was assigned Neighborhood Watch duties. Either they trained him and Zimmerman ignored those procedures. Or they didn't train him. Either way, one of those two is in big trouble.
If an off-duty doctor who is employed by a hospital commits malpractice in an emergency on the street, the hospital isn't liable. Your analogy has nothing to do with the point of our disagreement.

It doesn't surprise me that you think Glenn Beck's show isn't full of hatred for his political opponents, because, as I've said before, you have a lot of hatred for your political opponents.
Some hatred (at least as you define it) is good, right?

I thought this was interesting. I like Bill (even though he's black - that's a joke DickMillan), but he is way off on some of these statements, especially that last one....


http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.1062006

Legendary entertainer Bill Cosby said the national uproar over the killing of teen Trayvon Martin should be over guns, not race.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" that aired Sunday, Cosby said calling George Zimmerman a racist was pointless.

"What is solved by saying, 'He's a racist, that's why he shot the boy'?" Cosby said.

Since first speaking out about the case earlier this month, Cosby has repeatedly said that the Feb. 26 slaying of the unarmed teen shows there is a need to get guns off the streets.

"When a person has a gun, sometimes their mind clicks, that this thing will win arguments and straighten people out," Cosby told CNN."I'm not saying you can't have it in your home to protect yourself... you've got to protect yourself in your own home," he added.

"But I also believe that when you tell me that you are going to protect the neighborhood that I live in, I don't want you to have a gun," he said. "I want you to be able to see something, report it and get out of the way."

Cosby also said during the interview, which was taped on Thursday, that he once owned a gun but no longer does.

In the past two decades, the 74-year-old comedian has become outspoken on issues of violence, parenting, education and drug use in black and minority communities.

His own son, Ennis, was shot dead by a Ukrainian restaurant worker while changing a flat tire on the side of a Los Angeles highway in 1997.

Last week, Cosby told NBC's David Gregory, "When you have a gun, you may not realize it, but you put it on your person and you mean to pull (the trigger) and kill somebody."
