The 17 year old lad had gone to a convenience store where he bought a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea. That is all he had on his person as he walked through a gated community in Sanford, Florida to go home.
That is when Neighborhood Watch Captain, George Zimmerman, saw him from his Utility Sports Vehicle and began to follow him.
Zimmerman called 911 to report a suspicious black man in his neighborhood. The dispatcher told him NOT to follow him, that the police were on their way.
Zimmerman continued to follow the teen and shot him dead.
Here is how the news media, headlined this tragedy: A White Man in a White Neighborhood Kills Black Teenager.
Zimmerman is not a white man. He is mixed. But the 'progressive' press adores the opportunity to fan racial hatred and strife.
Taking advantage of a tragedy to cause unrest in America allows the Socialists to further weaken the U.S.,rendering it ripe for conquest.
The shooter said he felt that his life was in danger so he shot and killed Trayvon Martin. How's that again?
Zimmerman was in a vehicle following Trayvon who was walking. How much danger could Zimmerman face under those circumstances? How can one feel threatened by an individual that he is following?
Ignoring orders from police dispatchers, Zimmerman continued the chase, pulled up next to him, got out of his truck and a scuffle ensued leaving Zimmerman with a bloody nose.
Trayvon was not armed. He was the one being threatened and pursued.
According to witnesses, including his football coach, Jerome Hunter, Trayvon would never start a confrontation, was not an aggressive type, had never been known to have a fight, and was well loved by everyone who knew him. He was quietly walking on the sidewalk on his way home.
This happened on February 26th. Zimmerman has not been arrested or even charged in the murder, which effectively exhibits a distorted system of U.S.law and values along with the thousands of people taking to the streets in protest against the killling making this a political gift to assist in the destruction of The United States and the discouragement of patriotism. It well illustrates the Marxist Mantra: "Never let a good crisis go to waste." It was all perfectly orchestrated.
