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.

C'mon Blue, they can't throw it out just when it's getting interesting. There's the one million dollar plus wrongful death settlement, Ben Crump's predicament, Shellie's perjury trial and so much more to fret over before the BIG trial begins.

I didn't read Mrs Zimmerman's open letter but find it interesting that it was followed by the news that George's donation account is running in the red again and any help would be greatly appreciated. Timing is everything lol.

A Port Canaveral police sergeant has been fired for offering Trayvon Martin hoodie targets to other officers for use at a firing range training session. Sgt Ron King was night watch commander at the port and a firearms instructor.

King also teaches firearms safety privately.

Port Canaveral police sergeant fired

PORT CANAVERAL --
A Port Canaveral police officer is out of a job after allegations he brought targets resembling Travyon Martin to a gun range.

Sergeant Ron King was terminated by Port Canaveralís police chief Friday.

Interim CEO John Walsh said he would like to apologize to Trayvon Martinís family for the alleged behavior.

Walsh said it happened at the Sheriff's Farm gun range, near Interstate 95 in Cocoa on April 4.

King was leading a target practice with two other Port Canaveral police pfficers and another civilian port employee, according to Walsh.

Walsh said King brought out the targets with a picture resembling Trayvon Martin and asked the other officers if they wanted to use the picture for target practice.

The officers declined, and told King to put the picture back into his patrol car.

They were all on duty that day.

Walsh says he was told that the picture was never used for target practice.

The police chief was informed the day after this alleged incident.

After both a police and human resources investigation, it was decided King should be fired.

"We sincerely reach out to the family, and apologize for this incident. It is intolerable that this man took this, whether it was his own stupidity or hatred we don't know; however, on any level, it is not acceptable for us or for anyone society to act this way," said Walsh in a press conference Saturday.

The attorney for Trayvon Martinís family, Benjamin Crump, released a statement:

ďIt is absolutely reprehensible that a high-ranking member of the Port Canaveral Police, sworn to protect and serve Floridians, would use the image of a dead child as target practice. Such a deliberate and depraved indifference to this grieving family is unacceptable. The citizens of Port Canaveral deserve better.Ē

King has worked at the port since January 2011, before then, he was a long time officer in the city of Melbourne.

He has a week to appeal the decision.

News 13 has reached out to King, to get his side, but has not yet heard back.

Here's the irony.....the New Black Panthers can come into my town and passed out fliers at City Hall promoting a payoff for George Zimmerman's life, his picture with a bounty for $10,000 and NOTHING is done about it.

This officer was indeed stupid but he will appeal. He claims the picture with the hoodie, candy and drink was the target you weren't suppose to hit.

There was indeed a coverup in this case and it wasn't the SPD, try looking farther south in Miami/Dade County.
Trayvon was a trouble maker and finding himself in trouble on a regular basis. He started out skipping school, being tardy thinking he was cool and tough saundering into class when he felt like it..he even failed his FCAT. Trayvon's defiance toward authority escalated. There was the Tray that was sent to live with his uncle, the ex-marine, that mowed the lawn and took out the trash and there was the Trayvon George met on the night of Feb. 26th in Sanford. Trayvon's dead and his pal Kit Durant is going to prison for the rest of his disgusting life for murdering his own mother, the mother that wouldn't allow Trayvon in the house, two month's later. That is a FACT!

If only Trayvon and Kit were made accountable for their wrong doings by authorities involved maybe he would be alive today and so would Kit's mother.
Tracy dropping Trayvon off in Sanford with $$ and no supervision because he had plans shows the lack of responsibility on his part as a father.

The Kit Durant Trayvon Martin connection was born on right wing-racist blogs such as the conservative treehouse.

Durant lived in North Miami Beach and Martin lived in Miami Gardens which 8 to 10 miles to the West, much to far to walk or ride bikes on a regular basis so unless you can furnish specific details that the two knew one another once again I'll call bullchit.

Trayvon had only just turned 17 so you're saying that he started becoming a trouble maker when he was 16. That's possible but still he had no criminal record whatsoever so passing him off as a hardened thug makes 'you' look foolish. And none of it really matters because by George's own words the teen appeared to be minding his own business and moving along with a purpose during the very early evening of Feb 26.

Weird how you like LE-authority that dislikes Trayvon yet dislike LE that is interested in the truth.

Non-shooting target LMAO

Seriously, we need laws to set standards on such neighborhood watch patrols which should include mandatory training and reasonable standards governing just what is permissible and what isn't. Allowing anybody to engage in such patrols and allowing such a one to do as he sees fit is a recipe for an unnecessary killing. Neighborhood patrols ought to be limited to observation and reporting of possible suspicious activity with intervention only being a last resort in very extenuating circumstances. Had laws like that been in place, Trayvon Martin would likely be alive today.

There are standards and their is training...the training manual clearly states that weapons should never be carried and people thought to be suspicious should not be confronted by watch persons. Sanford Police Department had a NW liaison who had been communicating with George for over four months and George had spoken with SPD officers at The Retreat on previous occasions.

George let his imagination get the best of him that evening, perhaps that was George's normal.

We'll see who's going to look foolish...they attended the same school and were juniors at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High.

Pay attention to my remarks about a coverup that has been ucovered. Have you ever heard of the Miami-Dade School Police Department? Maybe Chief Ofc. Hurley? If the police had been filing reports Trayvon would have a record and not just Baker Acted which is protected through HIPPA. Now pay attenion, the transforming of criminal acts into school disciplinary records are then protected by FERPA. Do I have to spoon feed you everything?

I did not just get the Trayvon/Kit connection through CTH....don't speak for me.

So now you know what was going on in George's mind. George was watching and did not confront anyone. If he was going to confront Trayvon he would have done it when the punk approached his truck. George had NO intention of speaking or confronting the punk, thief, drugged up Trayvon.
George called LE..if the punk had a working phone and was so scared he too could have called LE..Now that's where all the bullchit comes from...

Someone leaked the jewelry and pot residue, pipe to Robles. There was then an investigation, what was revealed? It's just like Crump he sends a letter (ccHolder) for the FBI to get involved allocations of George and a hate crime. The FBI does a thorough investigation, not only on George....be careful what you wish for it might come back and bite you in the ass.

It's a volunteer program..it's hard to get anyone to devote their time what makes you think that's going to work making mandatory training? There's not too many that is willing to come home from working all day and spend their evenings walking the neighborhood for hours....It's even less likely now for fear they'll look at someone ,get attacked and not be able to defend themselves for fear of going through what George is going through. Reality Check!!

The reality is that a youth was gunned down by somebody who disregared the advice of a police dispatcher. Zimmerman was obviously not fit for the job. An unfit volunteer can be just as dangerous to another's safety as some body roaming the streets as the Martin family found out. I am not suggesting that they be subjected to any lengthy training program, rather that they should at least have to pass some sort of examination before being allowed to become part of a neighborhood patrol.

The pedophile Zimmerman had an arrest record and had been fired for losing his temper as a security guard.

And flunked out of school trying to be a cop so obviously: he wasn't and shouldn't have been pretending to be a cop and that is why the HOA paid off so quickly, they understand they screwed up in allowing this bigot paranoid racists to run loose with a gun.

Everyone who has listened to the transcript know exactly what was going through the pedophile racist's mind.

And why the pedophile was arrested for using deadly force on a black boy armed with a bag of candy.
