A 17yr old Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was brutally shot and killed by George Zimmerman a neighbor-hood watch captain. Zimmerman called the 911 center to report a suspicious guy ( on one of the 911 tapes) in his Retreats at Twin Lakes neighborhood. There where claims that Trayvon Martin was only walking to his father's home on a rainy night like anyone of us would Trayvon was wearing a hoodie with the hood pulled over his head and he was listening to his music with head phones on. Zimmerman claims He (suspicious guy) looked like he might be on drugs and “up to no good.”
“It’s raining. He’s just walking around, looking about,” Zimmerman told the dispatcher. “He’s just staring looking at all the houses.”
Later, he lamented: “These a**holes always get away.” Zimmerman is asked by the dispatcher if he is following the person, and when he indicates he is, the dispatcher says "we don't need you to do that."
The family of Trayvon Martin heard the 911 tapes saying that Zimmerman did not act in self defense. Since this heart breaking story made national news The Chicago Tribune reports that Rev.Al Sharpton announced on social media that he will be visiting Sanford next week to hold a rally for slain Miami teen Trayvon Martin. Rev Sharpton tweeted and anncounced on Facebook that he planned to arrive in Central Florida on Thursday.
Check Out the 911audio Tapes
As reported by CNN:
911 tapes released Friday detail moments of terror in the neighborhood as residents made a flurry of calls describing a gunshot and a teen wailing for help.
In some of the recordings, a voice screams "Help, help!" in the background.
"There were gunshots right outside my house. There's someone screaming, I just heard a guy shot," a neighbor says. "Hurry up, they are right outside my house."
Recordings mirrored the same details: A man outside was crying for help, followed by the sound of a gunshot.
"Hurry please ... there's someone screaming outside," a neighbor whispers. "There's a gunshot, hurry up ... there's someone screaming. I just heard a gunshot."
In another call, a woman begs the dispatchers to send help, saying someone is "screaming and hollering" for help.
Moments later, she describes a light at the scene of the shooting.
"Oh my God ..." she said, "There's still somebody out there walking with a flashlight."
Zimmerman told police he shot the teen in self defense, authorities said, and remains free as the state attorney investigates. Police said he has not been charged because there are no grounds to disprove his story of what happened.
It's sad that there has yet to be an arrest made. We can only pray that justice will happen for this young man and his family.Audio 911
