Teen Boy Shot to Death by Neighborhood Watch Captain for Tasting the Rainbow
Neighborhood Watch Captain George Michael Zimmerman is claiming he killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense. The only problem? Zimmerman shot Martin to death with a 9 mm pistol, while Martin was “armed” only with a bag of Skittles and an iced tea.
According to NBC Miami, police said Martin had been returning from a local store with Skittles and an iced tea.
Zimmerman, who is white, has been charged with no crime for killing the unarmed and not-white Martin. Police haven’t even opened an investigation into the killing, seeing no need to.
Stay classy, Miami.
