In the case involving the shooting of Trayvon Martin there was a lot of tension in the racial aspect of the society. Some say Trayvon was a young African American at the wrong place at the wrong time. While others say he wasn’t innocent and got what he got. Here’s the details of the case and you decide what side you are on either Trayvon or George Zimmerman’s. Trayvon Benjamin Martin was born February 5, 1995, a 17-year old African-American high school student currently a junior who lived in Miami Gardens, Florida, with his mother Sybrina Fulton and his older brother. In February 2012, Martin was visiting his father Tracy martin in Sanford, Florida, after receiving a ten-day suspension from Krop Senior High School. The suspension was given to Martin from the discovery of drug residue in Martin’s book bag. This was the third time that Martin has been suspended. According to an article it states “His father Tracy took his son four hours away from home because of the fact that neither he or Trayvon Martin’s mother wanted the teen to stay in his hometown where he could enjoy time with his friends or football coaches.”(CNN) A Sunday night, Martin was supposed to be getting a snack and heading back to the Sanford home of his father’s fiancé. On the walk back is when Trayvon encountered George Zimmerman for the first time. George Zimmerman is a 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer in his town. Zimmerman’s voice, meanwhile, comes through on a 911 call he made around that time, telling a dispatcher about “a real suspicious guy.” “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining, and he’s just walking around.” The 911 dispatcher then asked Zimmerman if he was following the person who is Trayvon. Zimmerman replied, “Yes.” Martin and Zimmerman were obviously in the middle of it, but no one else saw all that happened in the encounter. At this point in time a witness told police that “she heard a commotion, which sounded like arguing,” and then another witness at this time said there was “loud talking.” The same analysis also didn’t reach conclusions as to whether Zimmerman used a racial profiling in order to describe Martin on his own 911 call, as some have alleged. Martin’s family then went on to say that they believe George. George is a white Hispanic, that profiled the African-American teen known as Trayvon Martin. The gunshot that hit Trayvon came from Zimmerman’s black, 9mm semiautomatic hand gun. According to an article “The bullet went into Martin’s left chest and lodged there.”(CNN) A sergeant on the scene checked to see if he could find a pulse but he couldn’t. For next six minutes since arriving on the scene, the sergeant and another police officer treated Trayvon with CPR. “Firefighters and EMS from the Sanford Fire Department arrived at 7:27 p.m., to continue efforts in order to try and save him. Three minutes later after that Trayvon Martin was pronounced dead.”(CNN) A medical examiner’s report later found trace elements of THC, an element of marijuana, in his system. Zimmerman claimed that Martin had attacked him and that’s the reason why he pulled out his gun and shot Martin in the chest. The article also stated that “tests show evidence of Zimmerman’s hands on the firearm, but not Martin’s. An analysis of scrapings from underneath the teenager’s fingernails did not contain any of Zimmerman’s DNA, as might rub off in the case of a prolonged struggle.”(CNN) In contrast there was no indication that Trayvon Martin was ever involved in any criminal activity. Zimmerman had no right to kill Trayvon Martin. In the contrary the officer should of just talk to Martin. Police officers should rather use a Taser than a gun. They should also not judge people based upon the way they look. Police officers should be alert all the time but, they shouldn’t have to pull out a gun unless their life or another person’s life is in jeopardy.
