Trayvon Martin gun range targets

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/47382374/ns/local_news-jacksonville_fl/t/trayvon-martin-gun-range-targets-sold-online/#.T63U859YukB


An unidentified entrepreneur admits he is trying to profit off Trayvon Martin's death by selling gun range targets featuring the teen who's death has sparked a nationwide controversy.
Although Martin's face does not appear on the paper targets, they feature a hoodie with crosshairs aimed at the chest. A bag of Skittles is tucked in the pocket and a hand is holding a can resembling iced tea.
Martin purchased both items minutes before he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February, according to police.
Zimmerman, who has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges, originally told investigators he shot Martin in self-defense.
According to an advertisement for the targets that had been posted on a popular firearms auction website, the sellers stated they "support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug."
That online ad has since been removed.
"This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility," said Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara.

O'Mara said he is worried about how Martin's parents will react to the image of their son on a target intended to be used for shooting practice.
The attorney is also concerned the targets will further inflame the community.
"It's this type of hatred -- that's what this is, it's hate-mongering -- that's going to make it more difficult to try this case," said O'Mara.
Channel 4 has been unable to determine the identity of the seller, who had also set up a website to sell the gun range targets.
In an email exchange with WKMG-TV in Orlando, the seller wrote, "My main motivation was to make money off the controversy."
The seller would not disclose how many paper targets had been made, but said in an email, "The response is overwhelming. I sold out in two days."
Some of those targets were sold to two Florida gun dealers, according to the seller.
The seller originally claimed that targets were still available for purchase. After being informed WKMG was investigating his online business, the seller claimed the targets would no longer be sold.
Firearm owners are buzzing about the Trayvon Martin targets on several gun enthusiast websites.
Very few have shown interest in purchasing the targets. Most have expressed disgust.
"Even though I fully believe Zimmerman was justified in shooting, Trayvon was still a human being and does not deserve that kind of disrespect in death," wrote one firearm owners association website member.
Channel 4 left numerous phone and text messages with attorneys representing Trayvon Martin's family but did not receive a response Thursday.

    do you understand what im getting at?? WHAT WHITE PPL THINK, AND WHAT THEY DEFINE THINGS AS IS NOT THE STANDARD YOU SHOULD BE GOING BY. That is of course, if you are not mentally defeated by the complex of white supremacy, where everything whites do is the "right" way, where having straight hair and lightskin is "beautiful" but dark skin and nappy hair is "ugly"
    You're doing it wrong. You take one and really fuck them up; make an example to the other kids. Like grab the small bitch and gouge her eyes out with your thumbs. Then curb stomp her.

    if your a young black male your automatically labelled. There is an enemy in every corner. Doesn't make much of a difference if your wearing a black hoodie or a clean polo with fitted jeans. It is what it is. Gives me that much more apathy about how whites and others perceive me. Fuck all

    This case has opened up the proverbial can of worms - with things happening like random attacks on white people & young black mobs beating up on whitey e.g., @ state fairs, along with other issues - blacks sucker punching white people and stripping them and robbing them - seriously Y would anyone not have some reservations about your intentions? Fyi if I'm approached by some black person on the street,there is gonna to be an arms length between us until I feel comfortable...don't like it? so what.

    You should start a class action law suit against white America - BTW in my world I judge folks on content, SO your character has NO bearing whatsoever in the bigger picture.

    the news station that gave this story press is just as disgusting as the guy selling the targets

    it was not newsworthy, informative or necessary in the least

    this is the thing that people try to let go under the rug....someone was supporting this guy and this im sure is not an isolated incident.

    but yet..when black people speak up....people say we looking too deep into it, or he doesnt reflect us, or he was a thug.

    niggas made tshirts advocating violence....

    crackers made targets advocating violence....

    perhaps buying into media hysteria isn't the smart thing for anybody?
    them targets could have been bought out by one person and yall over here raising cain.

    targets that can only be used in private locations away from the masses...

    but them tshirts can be worn anywhere...
