TRIGGER WARNING: RACISM, VIOLENCE, DEATH

Unarmed Black Teen Gunned Down By Neighborhood Watch Leader After Being Deemed Suspicious
Trayvon “Trey” Martin, 17, of Miami was visiting relatives living in a gated community in Sanford, Florida. He had just left a local 7-11 after buying a snack and was on his way home around 7:00 PM on February 26. George Zimmerman, a 26-year-old member of the local neighborhood watch, saw Martin and called police to report a suspicious man in the community. He tailed Martin in his car. He had a loaded pistol on him. The police told Zimmerman they would handle it.
For some reason, Zimmerman didn’t obey. Minutes later, a number of local residents called police to report a fight. A gunshot was heard. Martin died 70 yards from the house he was staying in. Zimmerman was arrested and then released. He was carrying the pistol legally and has claimed that he was acting in self-defense.
Said Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee Jr. in an interview with the Huffington Post, “For some reason he (Zimmerman) felt that Trayvon, the way that he was walking or appeared seemed suspicious to him.”
Ah, yes. The way he was walking and his appearance were deemed “suspicious.” Oh, did I forget to mention that Martin is black? And that the gated community, called Retreat at Twin Lakes, is predominantly white?
Martin’s parents are demanding the police make an arrest and release the 911 call. They are expected to file a suit in state court on Friday.
“Zimmerman, an adult, had a gun. Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old, had Skittles. No way you can say self-defense,” said the family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump.

what the fuck do you mean they’re calling for his arrest. the fact that Zimmerman isn’t right now in custody is all the proof anyone needs of what is still happening in this country.

#i’m sure if a white kid had been killed #by a black dude or ANYONE for that matter #he’d be able to just walk the fuck around while they investigate #zimmerman CONFESSED by the way #too bad no one gives a fuck about dead black children
What irks me the most about this situation is that Zimmerman is trying to claim self defense. How in the hell are you going to plead self defense against a 17-year-old boy when he had nothing but Skittles in one pocket and a damn iced tea in the other?
Is it possibly THAT hard to just be a decent human being and admit that the basis of your “suspicion” came from the fact that he was black? 

Some reports are stating that when police arrived on the scene Zimmerman’s back was wet, his nose was bloodied, and he was yelling about how he cried for help and no one came.  So “‘There is some physical evidence and some testimony that would corroborate [his claim of self defense].” Which is fucking ridiculous.  
He was a twenty six year old man in a car following a seventeen year old kid at night.  He has all the power in this situation. He is older, he is more familiar with the area, he is armed, and he is inside a goddamn car.  The only way an altercation occurs is if he gets out of his car.  If it’s night and I’m walking alone and a car begins to follow me, I am going to be terrified of that car and it’s driver.  I can completely understand a young kid reacting aggressively in that situation because that’s a terrifying situation to find yourself in.  The only person who should be held responsible for any alteracation that occured is the grown ass man who thought it appropriate to follow a young kid around in the dark after the police dispatch explicitly told him not to do so and then GOT OUT OF HIS CAR.  
Zimmerman is clearly and undeniably the aggressor here and the fact that he has not been arrested is disgusting. 

I don’t even know what to say. 

Wow. This is fucking bullshit. Seriously, America. What is this? It’s manslaughter, murder in the first. Please send this psychotic asshole to jail because if you don’t, he can kill anyone and you’re basically showing other people that you can get away with killing minority kids cuz no one cares about them.
