The Killing Case has generated a huge amount of protest for the victim 17 year old Trayvon Martin and his killer 28 year old George Zimmerman. Martin was on his way back to his father’s girlfriend’s home from a convenience store when he was confronted by Zimmerman. Zimmerman (a community watch captain) called the Sanford PD to report suspicious activity from a “Black guy” and followed Martin before shooting him.
Now it’s been said by Florida prosecutors that Zimmerman has 85 to 95% chance of not being charged at all. Now that’s suspicious activity!
Martin was 17 years old, 6'3" and weighed 140 pounds at the time of his death. Martin lived with his mother and older brother in Miami Gardens Florida. He had hoped to become an aviation mechanic or engineer after transferring to Krop Senior High his sophomore year.
