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.

It's a good thing Bailey O’Neill didn't have a gun, or he'd be in BIG TROUBLE like Zimmerman.

Umm... I don't think anyone on either side seems to take much stock in the eyewitiness testimony in this case. I don't see how that changes anything.

It could completely throw out the testimony of TM's girlfriend.....she was the last person to talk to him alive.......she ws on the phone with him when he was shot...

The eyewitness testimony of the person who saw TM on top of GZ will be quite important...don't you think?

I'm voting guilty. The prosecutor is guilty of moving forward on a case that shouldn't have even been prosecuted based on the state of the evidence as we know it.

Juries do not like liars? So what does that say about GZ?

I never viewed the eyewitness testimony as relevant in this case. And I think it will be hard to make GZ "guilty." There was enough evidence already that contradicted the account that Trayvon was on top, so it's not like it's changed the game much. Nor did it seem like anybody was putting much credence into the girlfriend's statements.

However, I believe there will be more than enough evidence to prove that what Zimmerman did that night was flat-out wrong, even if it's not something you can prosecute.

so what does that say about you? an "eyewitness" lied in a murder trial.

That's pretty convenient that you think the eyewitness is more important than the person being put on trial.

Right now, Zimmerman has already lied about his earnings, and the judge laid the hammer on him and his wife. There is also question about the accuracy of his police statement. So yeah, it works both ways.

I dont' know what you're trying to imply. Are you implying that I was hung up on eyewitness testimony and this is earth-shattering to me? I've never once in this thread brought it up, nor have I brought up the girl's phone call, because they didn't seem credible. So no, this doesn't affect anything for me. And again, let me point out that I don't think the facts will make it easy to make Zimmerman guilty.
