Safe Mode: On
George Zimmerman not a member of recognized neighborhood watch organization

When 28-year-old George Zimmerman was discovered by Sanford, Florida police standing over the body of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, they accepted Zimmerman's claim that he
killed in self-defense as a neighborhood watch captain. Now, through a
statement released by the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) -- the
parent organization of USAonWatch-Neighborhood Watch -- it has been revealed that Zimmerman was not a member of any group recognized by the organization. Zimmerman violated the central tenets of Neighborhood Watch by following Martin, confronting him and carrying a
concealed weapon.

"In no program that I have ever heard of does someone patrol with a
gun in their pocket," Carmen Caldwell, the Executive Director of
Citizens' Crime Watch of Miami-Dade, told theGrio. "Every city and
municipality has their own policies. Here in Miami-Dade we train people
only to be the eyes and ears of their communities. Not to follow and
most definitely not to carry a weapon."

Despite this, Zimmerman admitted that he had fired a weapon on the
night of the incident. In addition, the non-emergency call Zimmerman
placed on February 26 before the shooting revealed he had been pursuing
Martin by car before accosting the youth on foot -- all direct
violations of Neighborhood Watch policies.Read more if you give a damn at ; http://www.thegrio.com/specials/trayvon-martin/zimmerman-not-a-member-of-recognized-neighborhood-watch-organization.php

    • @HeyMaker77 I agree, Trayvon Martin had every right to protect himself, his property (his skittles and ice tea), and his neghborhood (his father lived there). Where did the guy that shot Trayvon live? That's right, NOT in that neighborhood. He wasn't even part of any "Neghborhood watch" so what business did the muderer have being there?

    • @HeyMaker77 - probably not on either point. It's hard to grab a gun and shoot effectively when your face is being smashed.

  • You fricken arm chair wana be Nancey Grace unleash the moron lawyers..

    There is only one 7-11 close to this shooting. It's 2.5 miles away and has no video of Trayvon ever being at that location.

    So much for the skittles and Ice tea theory.

    Why has he not been charged & never will be charged?

    because the evidence that the police do not and will not disclose supports self-defense, Good fuking by!!!

  • Doesnt need to be to defend himself :)

    Trayvon was a drug dealing gang banger who matched the description of someone who had been breaking into houses.

    case closed...good shooting Mr Zimmerman!
