George Zimmerman, gunman

As family and friends laid to rest seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin this week, questions continued to mount surrounding the teen’s suspicious murder by the hands of a Neighborhood Watch officer who carried a concealed handgun.

The teen’s father has launched a petition calling on Florida’s 18th Disgtrict State’s Attorney to investigate the youth’s murder and to prosecute 26-year-old George Zimmerman who has not been charged and remains free.

An excerpt from the petition reads: “Trayvon’s killer, George Zimmerman, admitted to police that he shot Trayvon in the chest. Zimmerman, the community’s self appointed “neighborhood watch leader,” called the police to report a suspicious person when he saw Travyon, a young black man, walking from the store. But Zimmerman, who is white, still hasn’t been charged for murdering my son.”
