Jackie Summers decries the death of an unarmed teenager at the hands of a neighborhood watch captain who still walks free.
For as long as i can remember, this story has repeated itself:
“Unarmed black man shot and killed by cops.”
Or in this case: kid with Skittles shot by man in neighborhood patrol.
From The Huffington Post:
Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, was shot and killed in a gated community in Florida late last month by a white neighborhood watch captain, according to police. But the watch captain, George Zimmerman — a 26-year-old college student who has admitted to police that he shot the young man — still walks free. And Martin’s family is pleading for answers and demanding justice.
“He had a gun, and Trayvon had Skittles,” Benjamin Crump, a family attorney, told The Huffington Post this afternoon.
All I can say is this: What if this was your kid?
