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.

There's no room for anybody else's ignorance with you here, retard.

Here's the truth - you and people like you are the enemy of every freedom loving American who ever lived. Mindless, ignorant, indoctrinated tools who have no concept whatsoever of how the world works. You would rob every single law abiding citizen in this country of the right to defend themselves, and put us all at the mercy of criminals and corrupt government. The fact that you don't know how ****ing stupid you are is irrelevant.

Perhaps the day will come when you realize how utterly wrong you are on this issue. Too bad we'll never hear about it.

What if a black person is racist against his own race? Does that make him a racist?

I assume the murder rate has dropped because almost all the crackers have already been capped...

I had a roommate like that once. His mom was white, and his dad was black and had bailed on her. The Grand Wizard didn't hate blacks as much as this guy did. It really was amazing.

Yeah except that dude isn't black. He's mixed. Perhaps I should have specified. More than 80% black is what I mean when I say black. Now doesn't mean he didn't mostly hang out with black people, because that is possible. But our fraternity says you must be at least THIS black to bear the title.

I don't know where the **** you are and don't really care. I'm sure it has plenty of Arby's and Mcdonalds for you though.

Population increase for NYC from 2000 to 2011 was 488,740 (not 'millions') or 2.1%. The population increase for the rest of the United States during the same period was 9.7%.

But with the recent repeal of many gun control laws state by state situations like this were something many of us saw a long time coming.

And unless things change there will continue to be more.

Florida, where this shooting took place, passed their concealed carry law in 1987. So yes, about 25 years in coming.

Well, he looked black enough that everything thought he was black. Didn't fit in with blacks because he hated them. Didn't fit in with whites because he was so ridiculously racist that the only white people he would have fit in with wouldn't associate with him because he looked black. He was undoubtedly the most miserable, self-loathing person I've ever known. The roommate thing didn't last very long.
