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.

Yeah, you'd think just keeping the free money stolen from the rest of us rolling in would do that.

Racial arson is Barry's bread and butter. Look at the chronology of his political career. It's all he knows. Of course he's going to jump on every opportunity to manufacture racial tension to exploit for his own benefit.

Barry is a complete failure. He's an incompetent jerk, shit out of Mayor Daley asshole in Chicongo. He's a run of the mill, left wing agitator with a bull horn, who was peter principled by Oprah and Chris Matthews and the Communist party of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi because they knew they could sell his image (articulate mullatto with an Ivy League pedigree) to an American people over saturated with moonbat identity politics for the last twenty years. Anybody who pointed it out was called a racist.

Nobody bothered to check or care that he was a dope who had no real world experience who hailed from a communist fantasy land of Hyde Park and who was married in a racist "church" and even had his kids baptised by a maniac like reverend wright.

Why would anyone fear someone wearing a hoodie?

Damn this isn't far from me

Posting about the death penalty is irrelevant being that Georgia law doesn't allow it. Thus your entire "copy-paste" post doesn't belong here.
If you are going to troll at least be good at it

I just got off the phone with one of my oldest friends, Navy buddy that I've known for 25 years, who happens to be black. We were basically screaming at each other over this Travon Martin bullshit. And I couldn't help but think that's exactly what the ****ing turds who run our government want.

And if the media hadn't blown this up, no one would give a shit about it.

It's really sad. This whole ordeal is almost enough to turn me into a hardcore Republican, because **** liberals and the liberal media.

I have no idea why this case turned into THE news story in the country. Or Jody Arias, for that matter. Let HLN cover this shit, and let's hear about real news from the other stations, be it Egypt or whatever.

I personally got to the point where I felt insulted that every news outlet was peeing their pants in anticipation to what "might" happen. GTFO with that crap and give me legit news, not sensationalized news.

You know what. You're exactly right. That is just what the Govt. wants. It can't be as simple as 2 people that have different social and cultural differences that just don't see eye to eye. It must be a big conspiracy instead. Has to be, right?

Here's what I am taking away from the whole Zimmerman/Trayvon case: I am white and suburban and really have no idea how deep the cultural wounds run within the black community. Regardless of the fact that Zimmerman was acquitted, and totally separate from Florida law, what happened to Trayvon was the biggest fear of almost every, if not absolutely every, black person in the country. Not having been born, grown up, and lived every minute as a black person in this society, there's no way I can fully understand why it evokes such powerful emotion, even in someone who has never come within a thousand miles of Florida. It's like trying to explain green to a color blind person; I haven't experienced it myself, so the most I can do is imagine.

I guess I just don't get why it's acceptable for someone to say, "I've been followed in stores and people cross the street when I'm around therefore I harbor negative emotions about race," is met with , "Yes, we sympathize. It's a terrible state in this country that you feel that way. Something should be done." But if someone said, "I've been robbed by an African American therefore I'm distrustful of black people," it would be called bigoted and racist, and they'd be told not to generalize.
The acquittal of Zimmerman is the difference, or just that the criminal justice system was involved?
