Trayvon Martin Case: Racial Slur Before Teen Was Murdered?
Did George Zimmerman Say 'Fucking Coons' Before Killing Trayvon Martin?
It's looking bad for George Zimmerman, and even worse for the Sanford Police Department as the events surrounding the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin continue to unfold.
The Sanford Police claim to have "missed' a possible racial slur by George Zimmerman during the 911 call prior to Trayvon Martin's murder. At issue is whether or not George Zimmerman really said "fucking coons", or if it was just "fucking punks" (it sure sounds like the former, though).
The bigger issue is that the Sanford Police really didn't want the public to hear this tape, because it further proves that George Zimmerman's actions were worthy of a police intervention that never happened.
The Sanford Police Department screwed up in its response to Trayvon Martin's murder on almost every possible level, and has been working overtime to limit its own exposure. It would seem that the Sanford PD hoped that Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law would just sweep this incident away.
It's clear to anyone honest with themselves that Trayvon Martin was targeted because of the color of his skin: a white kid walking home from 7-11 with a pack of Skittles would surely not have warranted any neighborhood-watch attention.
