This is absolutely horrible.
A 17-year-old teenager named Trayvon Martin was killed three weeks ago in a city north of Orlando, Florida by a neighborhood crime watch volunteer who went out of his way to shoot him - even though he was carrying nothing but a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea. However, this guy is claiming the horrific act was in self-defense - and he has NOT been arrested!
Naturally, public outry is mounting, and the lawyers for the poor kid's family are now asking the Department of Justice to intervene!
The Sanford Police Department has not released any details of their investigation, but have released the multiple 911 calls that came in after neighbors heard what was going on, and believe us when we say it is absolutely CLEAR that this was not an act done out of self-defense.
WARNING: This is extremely unsettling and not easy to listen to.
