Gang Stalking: Captain of Neighborhood Watch Program Murders Teen
On February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman stalked and killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin. The 28 year-old Zimmerman is the "Neighborhood Watch Captain" of his gated community in Florida. Apparently, Zimmerman started following Martin who was walking back to his father's unit in their gated community. Zimmerman called police to report Martin's "suspicious" activity of being black and wearing a hooded sweatshirt. After being instructed not to continue following Martin, Zimmerman disobeyed police advice and continued to stalk him. This led to a scuffle, provoked by Zimmerman, and, ended with Zimmerman's shooting the unarmed teen and killing him.
Zimmerman is apparently an unstable person who called police 46 times in the last year to report "suspicious activities". Zimmerman also encouraged other community members to carry firearms. Frank Taaffe, a former "neighborhood watch captain" stated that Zimmerman was reacting to an uptick in crime in the gated community due to the recession.
Police have legal notice of overzealous, invasive and lawless vigilante groups operating in Florida. They are condoning these activities through nonfeasance and are legally complicit in this vigilantism. Whats happening in Florida is happening in New York, California, Texas and elsewhere. The fact that an unarmed black teen was shot dead by a vigilante and the police are refusing to arrest the shooter is a scandal. The fact that police are not releasing all the evidence they have in this case reeks of an official cover-up. See Link:

Link to the 911 tape of the murder:
The police had a number of complaints about Zimmerman from other members of the homeowner's association. These police complaints detailed Zimmerman's aggressive behavior, and his being armed at community board meetings:
Zimmerman has a past criminal history known to police. He was arrested for resisting arrest in an incident in which he intervened when a friend of his was being arrested by police for serving alcohol to minors. Zimmerman's ex-girlfriend had a court order of protection against him on grounds of domestic violence. Zimmerman has had several other complaints lodged against him for violence and criminal misconduct as well. See link:
The N.Y. Daily News reports that Martin was on his cell phone with his girlfriend and expressed fear that he was being "stalked" moments before being fatally shot. A federal probe and the convening of a Grand Jury were announced today:
In the U.S., the use of a growing percentage of the population in national "neighborhood watch Programs" has been instrumental in building a Stasi-like citizen spy network:
In 1981, national data showed that 12 percent of the population was involved in some type of neighborhood watch group (O'Keefe and Mendelsohn, 1984). By 1988, it was estimated that between seven and 20 percent of residents of U.S. cities were involved in such activities (Rosenbaum, 1988). A national study (Whitaker, 1986) showed that 38 percent of households in neighborhoods that had a Neighborhood Watch program participated in the program. This study concluded that urban areas were more likely to have programs than suburban or rural areas, but that people living in the latter were likely to be involved in a program if one was organized.
