Mar 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: New York Daily News

ORLANDO, Fla. -- College students around Florida rallied Monday to demand the arrest of a white neighborhood watch captain who shot an unarmed black teen last month, though authorities may be hamstrung by a state law that allows people to defend themselves with deadly force.

Martinez saw a shoplifter running from the Walmart Superstore in Orange City and opens fire at the fleeing car. He was just trying to be helpful.
He was quickly arrested for shooting into an occupied vehicle. He may also face other charges.
To top it all off Martinez was wearing a hoodie.
Good I am glad he was arrested. Shoplifters can have kids too. Did Martinez know if there was any strapped in a seatbelt or car seat when he shot at the car ? OR CARE?

It's on video which can be found later today at wftv.com

The shooting occurred in the busy parking lot and the shooter did take out the rear window of the car.

He, Martinez, was chasing at first and then got caught up in his own emotions and started blasting away.

Emotions can be very costly.

The shoplifter, a black guy, was stealing meat and other food. He's charged with retail theft with other charges pending.

Maybe you can bring that up in court? That blacks don't have to worry about people like this pedophile walking the street at night with a gun?

Or maybe the pedophile can find all those bestest black friends he has... someplace...

Are you joking?
Let's use our imagination here. Let's say we had a white President with a white AG, and there was a shooting that involved a black shooter defending his life against a white attacker. Now let's imagine that the white President made an ignorant statement like "If I had a son, it would look just like the shooting victim." And even though no race was involved, the white President had his racist white attorney general send FBI agents to the state to see if they could manufacture race into the shooting. When they could not, the mainstream barely wrote about it.

How can it be SYG for GZ when it wasn't his ground to stand on?! His life was not in danger when he followed the kid, and his posessions weren't stolen, either. The property he shot TM on did not belong to him and he was told "we don't need you to do that" when he admitted to following TM. No SYG.
So the ground on which the shooting happened belonged to Martin?

Zim had more right to be there than thug. He was just staying at his fathers girlfriends house. Zim lived there. He paid taxes there. He contributed to the community there.

Zim followed Matin (admittedly) for several seconds. Then he stopped. He continued his conversation with dispatch for about a minute afterwards. Martin attacked him after he hung up with 911.

From now on, let's stop having trials to determine guilt.

Think how much money could be save by using a spinner, first guilt or innocence, and then to determine sentence length!

The teenager had every egal right to be exactly where he was at when he was killed by the pedophile bigot, spooge breath.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

White people do not have more of a right to walk the street unmolested than do blacks, and there isn't a sliding scale -that whites have more a right than blacks or browns more than blacks.

NO matter how hard you stomp your bigoted feet, Pinocchio.

Why not spend several million, on a high profile cop killer trial...his eventual heavy incarceration.....especially when, several witness's saw the incident....does that make sense to you? Forget the color bullshit.....

If 'Zim' lived there, how come he couldn't give the 911 op the street address?

On what planet are you on where the state should spend more or less money based on the social status of the victim?

Putting aside for a second in the real world, the state- especially the southern states- are going to put more effort (or less) based on skin color?

You keep insisting the witnesses saw something that the state of Florida did not see.

And you have had a year to post it here.

What secret witness do you have that the state of Florida is not aware of?
