A few days ago a seventeen year old black boy was unarmed, holding Skittles and iced tea in his hands and returning from a gas station when a white man with a gun spotted him, called the police calling the 140 pound black boy a "suspicious person". The police advised him not to follow the black boy but the white boy did and shot the black boy dead. The black boy was armed only with a bag of skittles. The white man, George Zimmerman, has not been arrested. On 911 tapes the white man was heard to have said, "They always get away." Before he shot the black boy.

Sign this petition for justice, to avenge the killer of the poor black boy.

It really makes me sick that they've done nothing yet. There is no reason that boy should have died at all.

Try "a Hispanic male", not "a white man".

herp derp he wasnt arrested because he was protected by a law stating that he shouldnt be arrested as long as he claims self defense, which he did

he's not NOT going to get prosecuted, they just skip the part where they arrest him

Hispanics are white. And he may have had Hispanic ancestry but his last name was Zimmerman.

You left out the part how he was a neighborhood watch participant who worked with the police. I believe he should be tried, but not for a random murder. He was obviously a trigger happy vigilante, not a racist murderer like they're playing him out to be.

But it wasn't self-defense. The black boy didn't attack him! The white man followed him even after being warned not to and gunned the black boy down.

Why does his last name matter?

I don't really know the race of the guy, but it doesn't matter what race he is, he should be in jail by now for murdering that kid.

The death is unfortunate.

However, you're only presenting one side of the story here.  Zimmerman claims it was self-defense and apparently there's some evidence to back that.

@DiamondRio:  your last sentence is a contradiction.  Avenging is NOT justice.  And unfortunately, the people of that community are only out for revenge, not justice.

He was half white, half hispanic. But people jumping on the hate crime bandwagon isn't an uncommon scenario.

Yeah but so far he has zero charges. Where's his manslaughter charge?

don't call him a "white boy" who shot the black boy dead, you sound like a child
and furthermore, he was a man. a bigoted, leader of his neighbourhood watch utterly responsible for his actions grown ass man who followed a kid around in his car at night before murdering him in cold blood

AT THE VERY LEAST ZIMMERMAN SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH MANSLAUGHTER. SO FAR, HE HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH NOTHING.

How was it self-defense? Was the kid throwing skittles at him? I think there might have been some shoving, but seriously, I don't think that justifies murdering a 17 year old kid. He was a nut job. Even before this incident.
