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.

He's not anglo-saxon white, but white nonetheless. Hang him.

This is just a terrible, terrible case. It's outright murder, regardless of what the guy with the gun thought he was accomplishing.

Race and ethnicity are two independent characteristics. This guy was:

1. White
2. Hispanic
3. Stupid and Dangerous.

If a MacDonald employee assaults a customer at work, MacDonald will be sued.

Will the Neighborhood Association be in legal trouble if Zimmerman is working for them?

What does his race have to do with him carrying a gun and killing an unarmed black kid? The gun is my issue, not his race.

Well, you're first 2 posts in the thread seem to indicate that race did play a part in it for you.

Duh. Because white on black crime appears much worse than Latino on black.

Its not rocket science.

That's funny. I don't recall ever making a distinction based on race.

The guy is guilty no matter the color of his or the victims skin.

I'd love to see Frazod and the rest of you guys defend that.

It's bullshit plain and simple. This Zimmerman needs to burn.
Hey Mr. Plow, you forgot this Wickedson gem in your previous post.

Pretty obvious race played a big role for you Wickedson...are you now going to advocate that a couple of black guys go find and kill a Hispanic kid instead of a white kid, since Zimmerman was not white?

Well sure. His name is Zimmerman. I'm sorry but I've never heard a hispanic man named Zimmerman. And in no article was his race mentioned at the time.

The victim's race is obviously much more important here and the fact the man was carrying around a gun like a punk and now hopefully he's going to prison.

I never advocated that. Simply was posing a scenario that I found many in this thread would consider hard to defend when they were defending this guy Zimmerman so easily.

I've explained this numerous times.

I find it hilarious to the point that there are those on this board that quote that statement in their signatures. Talk about obsessive.

I believe all that carry handguns and shoot people without cause should be in prison.
