17-year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by 27-year old George Zimmerman because he suspected Trayvon was a burglar in the neighborhood.
Trayvon showed no threat to George or his neighborhood. He simply was just a black kid in a suburbia neighborhood. Being black was enough for Zimmerman to pursue the teenager. George easily was the aggressor, but at this time George hasn’t been arrested or charged with the death of Martin.
1,000,000 people of all ages, gender, and race came out to march in New York City to protest against the hateful murder of Trayvon Martin’s. People want George to pay for his crime and be charged with a hate crime.
The clip below replays the 911 call and you can hear Zimmerman say “f*ckin’ coons” under his breath when referring to Martin. He may not be racist [if he say so], but he definitely was full of hate that night and should be arrested for his violent reaction. Trayvon didn’t have a weapon on him just a bag of Skittles and can of iced tea.
