Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old boy shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, would have been celebrating his birthday today.
Trayvon Martin – one of many names of young Black men killed by racists during Obama’s rule. Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, captain of his neighborhood watch volunteer group in Sanford, Florida, in 2012.
Martin’s death sparked national outrage, but Zimmerman was still acquitted of all charges. The court didn’t pay any attention to his previous record with a long story of alleged violent behavior.
Zimmerman is still trying to stay in the limelight. In May 2016 he put the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin on sale and later, despite all controversy, received $ 250 000 for it.
