This story has really began to catch a lot of traction in the past 24 hours, in part because of the clear racial undertones of an unarmed black teen being shot in his own gated community.
Here’s audio of the story from NPR News.
George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch patroller who allegedly shot Martin in the chest on February 26, has not been charged with anything, though public outrage over this fact is growing. Police claim that there is not enough whitness testimony or physical evidence to arrest Zimmerman on any charges, though this Huffington Post article includes many neighborhood accounts of what occurred that evening. The above article also includes the 911 tapes that recorded Zimmerman’s perceptions of Martin before the shooting. The audio is rather unsettling.
