    Default 17-year-old Trayvon Martin murdered by white man who is going uncharged

    17-year-old Trayvon Martin was a black teenager who was shot and killed two weeks ago while visiting relatives in a gated Florida community. A self-appointed neighborhood watch leader, who is white, admitted to killing Trayvon, but police haven’t charged him with a crime. Sign the petition started by Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton calling for Florida authorities to charge her son’s killer.
    Sign the Petition


    Heartbreaking tragedy:
    17-year-old Trayvon Martin was visiting a relative's house in a Florida gated community when he walked to the store to get Skittles and iced tea for his little brother. He never made it home. Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a self-styled neighborhood watch leader, who told police he thought Trayvon was "suspicious" in the mostly-white community. Unbelievable twist: A man named George Zimmerman allegedly admitted to police that he shot Trayvon Martin in the chest. Zimmerman claims he acted in self defense, even though police allegedly told him not to do anything until they arrived -- and despite the fact that Trayvon was unarmed, carrying only a bag of Skittles when he died. In the two weeks since Zimmerman allegedly killed Trayvon, police have refused to arrest the confessed killer. Hope for justice: Sybrina Fulton is Trayvon's mother, and she's leading a campaign on Change.org to get justice for her son. Tracy knows that if enough people raise an outcry, Sanford, Florida authorities will be forced to investigate Zimmerman the same way they would investigate any confessed killer. Sign Sybrina's petition calling on the authorities in Florida to charge George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin and try him before a jury of his peers. --------- Here's a lot more info about Sybrina's campaign, in her own words: On February 26, my son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked back from a convenience store where he had just bought some candy. He was only 17 years old. Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman, admitted to police that he shot Trayvon in the chest. Zimmerman, the community's self appointed "neighborhood watch leader," called the police to report a suspicious person when he saw Trayvon, a young black man, walking from the store. But Zimmerman, who is white, still hasn't been charged for killing my son. Trayvon was my hero. At the age of 9, Trayvon pulled his father from a burning kitchen, saving his life. He loved sports and horseback riding. At only 17 he had a bright future ahead of him with dreams of attending college and becoming an aviation mechanic. Now that's all gone. When Zimmerman reported Trayvon to the police, they told him not to confront him. But he did anyway. All I know about what happened next is that my 17 year-old son, who was completely unarmed, was shot and killed. I don't know if my family will ever receive justice for this terrible tragedy. It's been nearly two weeks and the Sanford Police have refused to arrest George Zimmerman. In their public statements, they even go so far as to stand up for the killer - saying he's "a college grad" who took a class in criminal justice. Please join me in calling on the the Sanford Police Department and Florida State's Attorney Norman Wolfinger to investigate my son's death and prosecute George Zimmerman for the shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin. --------- Click here to sign Sybrina's petition for Florida State's Attorney Norman Wolfinger to prosecute Trayvon Martin's killier.

    Militia group wants to arrest Fla. watch leader

    Posted: 6:24 a.m. Friday, March 16, 2012

    ORLANDO, Fla. — Members of a self-described black militia group will attempt a citizen's arrest on a white neighborhood watch leader who has admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed African-American teen in an Orlando suburb, but has not been charged, a leader of the group said Thursday.

    Members of The New Black Liberation Militia plan next week to take 28-year-old George Zimmerman to federal authorities since local police haven't acted, said Najee Muhammad, a leader of the militia group.

    "We'll find him. We've got his mug shot and everything," Muhammad said.
    Sanford police did investigate but have declined for now to arrest Zimmerman who says he acted self-defense last month when he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Police say they have no evidence to disprove his assertion. They have since turned the case over to the State Attorney's Office, and a spokeswoman said it could be weeks before a decision is made on whether to file charges or present the case to a grand jury.

    An attorney for the teen's family said they are discouraging actions such as what the militia proposed.

    "They want justice at the hands of authorities and nobody else," said attorney Benjamin Crump. "Everybody has a right to peacefully assemble but we certainly want to leave any kind of arrests ... to the authorities."

    A spokesman for Sanford police didn't return an email seeking comment about the militia group's plans. Zimmerman has a disconnected number and couldn't be reached for comment.

    Moments before the shooting, Zimmerman had called police to report a suspicious person in the neighborhood. After a confrontation, he shot and killed Martin who was walking back from a convenience store to a house in the Sanford neighborhood where the teen's father's fiance lived.

    Out of a population of 54,000, about 57 percent of Sanford residents are white and 31 percent are black, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The median income is about $43,000.

    Martin's family has criticized police for not arresting Zimmerman. They filed a lawsuit asking that the 911 tapes be released, but police have said the tapes are part of the investigation and will only be released once the State Attorney's Office is done evaluating the case.

    A spokeswoman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights group that monitors hate groups, said her organization didn't have any information on The New Black Liberation Militia. The group describes itself on its website as "Developing and Teaching Spiritual, Psychological, Social, Holistic and Scientific Methods and Techniques to ensure the survival of black people in the 21st century and beyond."

    Photos on the site show men dressed in fatigues and berets.

    There is no mention of citizen's arrests in Florida's criminal statutes but state courts have cited common law in establishing when such an arrest can be made. The crime has to be a felony. It has to be witnessed by the citizen making the arrest or the citizen has to have probable cause that the person being arrested is guilty of a felony.

    Orlando criminal defense attorney Patrick Cairns said members of the militia face a high legal hurdle in taking such action since they didn't witness a crime. They could be charged with false imprisonment if they detain Zimmerman.

    "You do a citizen's arrest only if you think the cops aren't going to get there in time and you're afraid somebody is going to leave the scene," Cairns said.
    The family started an online petition for the State Attorney's Office, demanding an arrest.

    "Trayvon was unarmed when he was shot by Zimmerman," said the online petition, which has been signed by almost 215,000 people. "Please uphold justice."

    This is to be expected. Pain is the only thing white people understand. When will we understand this.

    U.S. News - Family: 911 calls show shooting of black teen was not self-defense

    Click on link above for 911 Call & Family Interview

    The family of a teenager who apparently cried for help before he was shot to death by an armed member of a Florida neighborhood watch group tells TODAY's Amy Robach that they will not rest until charges are brought against the boy's shooter.

    By msnbc.com staff and news services

    SANFORD, Fla. -- Calls made to police show that a black teenager was terrified as he tried to get away from the white neighborhood watch volunteer who shot him, and that the volunteer was not defending himself as he has claimed, the teen's family told The Associated Press on Saturday.

    Sanford police released eight 911 calls late Friday. The neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, tells a dispatcher in the first call that he is following 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

    He says Martin is running, but the dispatcher tells him not to follow the teen.

    "How can you claim self-defense and you are the aggressor?" Tracy Martin, Trayvon Martin's father, told the AP on Saturday.

    Zimmerman had called police to report a suspicious person walking through the gated community. He has said he shot the teen in self-defense. Zimmerman's father said in a letter to the Orlando Sentinel that his son, who is Hispanic, has been cruelly and unfairly portrayed in the media as a racist.

    The teen had gone to a convenience store to buy candy and was walking back to his family's home in the neighborhood.

    "This guy looks like he is up to no good. He is on drugs or something," Zimmerman told the dispatcher from his SUV. He added
    that the black teen had his hand in his waistband and was walking around looking at homes.

    "These a-------. They always get away," Zimmerman said on a 911 call.

    He has said he acted in self-defense, but Martin's family said they are now more convinced than ever that Zimmerman should be
    charged in the shooting. Several of the 911 calls made by neighbors describe some sort of scuffle or fight outside, someone yelling for help and a gunshot.

    "(Zimmerman) was chasing him, he was following him, and my son was afraid," Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother, told the AP.

    "He didn't know who this stranger was."

    Tracy Martin said the calls paint a stark picture of what were his son's final moments.

    "He was yelling for help, and no one could help him. He saw his life being taken away from him," Tracy Martin said.

    That assertion was bolstered by two other neighbors who came forward on Friday, according to a report from NBC Miami.

    The two women, roommates, came forward to say they heard the teen calling for help.

    "I feel it was not self-defense, because I heard the crying, and if it was Zimmerman that was crying, Zimmerman would have continued crying after the shot went off," said Mary Kutcher, speaking to television reporters.

    The case has been turned over to the State Attorney's Office, which can decide whether to file charges or present evidence to a
    grand jury.

    Trayvon Martin's family said they will continue pushing for charges to be filed against Zimmerman.

    "We're hoping this doesn't happen again to another family, and that America opens their eyes ... even though this won't bring
    Trayvon back, we don't want there to be another Trayvon," Tracy Martin said.

    Moments after Zimmerman's first call, dispatchers were bombarded by seven 911 calls from frantic neighbors describing a fight
    between two men, screaming and then a gunshot.

    "There is somebody screaming outside," one female caller said, as an unknown male voice can be heard crying in the background.

    Then a shot is heard.

    A male caller described a physical altercation between Martin and the shooter.

    "I just heard a shot right behind my house," The caller said.

    "They're wrestling right behind my porch. The guy is yelling `Help.' I'm not going outside."

    Earlier Friday, Martin's parents called on the FBI to take over the investigation, saying they no longer trusted the Sanford police department.

    Sanford police Sgt. David Morgenstern said the department stands by its investigation but welcomes help from any outside agency. FBI agent David Couvertier said the agency has been in contact with Sanford police and is monitoring the case.

    "We are committed to having somebody review this to see if we made a mistake," said Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett. "If we made
    missteps and there is something there, we will act accordingly."

    Several Sanford residents who spoke to The Associated Press Friday said they think there would have been an arrest already if
    the shooter had been black and the deceased had been white. They said blacks and whites in this city of 53,000 residents were pretty much in agreement that an injustice had been done with no one arrested, and that there was no racial divide in how the case is being perceived. The city is 57 percent white and 30 percent black.

    It has a median household income of almost $42,000.

    "It's just about ... to be able to take somebody's life in 2012 and not even go to jail for it, that is just sad. No matter, for
    any color. Not just black or white. Any color," Ladonna Williams, 38, who is black, said as she shopped at the Seminole Towne Center
    shopping mall, more than a mile from where the shooting took place.

    In the letter to the Sentinel, Zimmerman's father says his son has received death threats and moved out of his home. George
    Zimmerman is Hispanic and grew up in a multiracial family, the statement says.

    "He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever ...," the letter says. "The media portrayal of George as a racist
    could not be further from the truth."

    The ambiguous "Hispanic" (Spanish speaking linguistic group) term rear it's ugly head once again. These people (mutts / buffer class) are just as dangerous as so called white people. Hispanics are a buffer group. They are white identified and from what I have observed want to be recognized as honorary so called white people.

    Nonetheless, I expect the same we are the world B.S. rhetoric to start being projected. Dr. John H. Clarke said, and he was correct, African people have no friends.

    If have no idea what the parents are doing behind the scenes so I'll wait to see what happens.

    "Yeah, I'm angry. I'd be crazy not to be".
