Neighborhood watch kills kid (911 tapes released)

quote:

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.

Un-armed kid walking in his neighborhood, on the sidewalk, gets shot?

That's fricked up, regardless of race.

This time I sort of believe that he may be a good kid.

In this case, it's probably because it's sounds so absolutely fricked up on the shooters part.

That's a small elephant...and not the typical expression. Either way, I think this "neighborhood watch" guy shouldn't even be carrying a gun. Any gated community can easily afford a commissioned officer to be there most of the time. And I'm not even talking upper middle class here.

Self defense or not how did the police not arrest this man when the incident occurred?

Zimmerman deserves the chair. He should get hanged, but we don't do that anymore.

Bringing back the public gallows would be a net positive for society, IMO. But take the ability to kill away from the state and return it to the community

The community is the one who killed in this scenario.




Also, this gets very little response by the board?

State doesn't decide if you get convicted or if you get the death penalty.


So what are you talking about?

there's not much to say

guy apparently murdered a kid and will be really lucky to get off on manslaughter. We haven't heard any evidence from his mouth or from the 911 tapes, so we can only speculate based on the family's account
