WAOK Wants To Know: Should George Zimmerman Be Arrested For The Killing Of Trayvon Martin?

Today on Power Talk with Lorraine Jacques White and Sisters In Law  we played the 911 calls which detailed the events that took place moments before the murder of Trayvon Martin.

Calls made to police show that a black teenager was terrified as he tried to get away from the white neighborhood watch volunteer who shot him, and that the volunteer was not defending himself as he has claimed according to the teen’s family on Saturday.

Sanford police released eight 911 calls late Friday.

In the first 911 call before Trayvon Martin (black teen) was killed, neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman (hispanic man above) can be heard pursuing the unarmed youngster on foot as he runs away.

“These ASSHOLES. They always get away,” Zimmerman said on a 911 call.

Moments later the police are bombarded with calls from terrified neighbors asking them to send police as a voice in the background can be heard screaming for help before the sound of two gun shots.

When police arrived at Florida’s Retreat at Twin Lakes Townhomes they found Trayvon, who had been returning from a store with candy for his younger brother, had been shot dead by 28-year-old Zimmerman.

Martin’s parents are now calling on the FBI to take over the investigation, saying they no longer trusted the Sanford police department.

Listen to the 911 calls below.

    Yes, I think he should be arrested! If he had been black, the police wouldn’t wasted any time putting Trayvon in handcuffs. What is it going to take to stop these killings of our young black men? Do they have to get guns in order to get justice?

    Shoot back. There is no freedom without sacrifice!

    Should he be arrested ??? Zimmerman should have been locked up three weeks ago when the murder happened. Nothing about this indicates self-defense, except for Trayvon trying to defend himself from this psychopath.

    • Jewel

      I’m with you he is psychopath animal. He should have been arrested the very day. How so really sad a 17 year child that, looks even younger. My heart & prays are with his parents. A young life cut short for nothing. What is the world coming to. The cops needs to do their job & lock that animal up.

  • Porsha

    How many more senseless killings of black men have to go on before Eric Holders camp takes control. Just because someone looks suspicious does not give anyone the right to kill an unarmed young man and take the law into ones own hand. My heart is so heavy right now, i cannot even began to imagine the anger that his parents must feel knowing that the killer of their innocent son is still walking around free, which tells you how much a black life is really worth….. murder someone black, then just turn around and go home.

    • Uncle Tom Bill

      Are you aware of the fact, that there has been no death penalty for blacks killing blacks except in exceptional cases?

      Are you aware that blacks kill other blacks more than whites?


      Were I you, I would do more research for facts, rather than depend on : Negro Emotionalism”!

      • Mark

        Actually your reply has nothing to do with ANYTHING the commenter said AND it proves their point at the same time. Being that Black lives evidently are NOT considered worth much – killing one does not warrant the death penalty except in extreme cases.

        As well, if you are going to commit a crime, would you pick a target that is MORE likely to create a police investigation or LESS – hence the reason for black on black crime. So THANK YOU Uncle Tom for proving how sinister and far reaching racism is.

        Not to mention neither of your points describe the situation being reported on.
        Are you aware the black kid did nothing wrong?

        Are you aware the black kid was with a family that lived in the Gated Community where he was gunned down (probably to excape the black on black crime you describe, to live with “supposed” civilized white people)?

        Are you even aware the shooter was hispanic and NOT white?

        Were I you I would read and COMPREHEND before replying in the future.

        Were I you, I would stop being ignorant and think for yourself, rather than depend on: Klu Klux Klan Propoganda”!

        Just sayin :)

      • Porsha

        Negro Emotionalism?????????????? Are you for real? Now black folk cant mourn the loss of the innocent? I hate to see any black man killed sensely whether it be by another black man or the other. The fact of the matter is that this young mans life was snuffed from under him for no justifiable reason. I may not agree with a lot of things black youth are doing these days but their LIFE is VALUABLE and worth perserving.

        You see UNcle Tom the a$$, and an A$$ is what you are, though i may not agree with sagging pants, hip hop, and all the things a lot of lost young black men are getting caught up in, i will never ever get so high and above them to tell myself that somehow they deserve to be killed. Its easy to make false judgements, i used to be guilty of that UNTIL i really got involved and started mentoring some of the very young men that had a look and attitude about them that i from a far i despised. When i got involved and put all assumptions aside i saw that was underneath was a very special young black man that had lost his way feeling like no one cares about them. Maybe this is what you should do instead of being so heavily drenched with the FACTS. Actually get involved instead of finding and listing all these links. Reach one, teach one, then maybe black on black killings may be non existant.

  • sj

    what’s wrong with these folks who voited “no.” They must have hate in their heart AND it’s probably the same person that keeps voting! If it was their child, they would want justice.

  • Uncle Tom Bill

    More Blacks have killed each other in the past twenty years, THAN ALL OF THE LYNCHING OF BLACKS IN THE PAST 150 YEARS!

    Black life is cheap, because we make it cheap!


    While the situation in Fl is tragic, how many Black on Black murders has occurred since the Fl killing?

    But, no one Black cares about that!

    Only if a White kills a Black, then do you become incensed!

    “Negro Emotionalism” at it’s finest.

  • Joan Q

    @uncle tom bill,
    a racist is one who has the power, to turn dogs, waterhoses, beatdown black people with blackjacks, tie them with a rope to the back of a truck dragging them through the streets. How much more “Negro Emotionalism” do you need.

    FEAR is your problem. You will always have FEAR. However, no black man has to raise a fist to fight you. Your greatest FEAR is that “Middle Eastern Terriorist” who hates your guts! and is mad, I mean really mad and salivating at the chance to rip your head from your body. Now and into the future, you will FEAR for yourself and your children.

    • Uncle Tom Bill

      Oh, and I suppose that the Muslim terrorists just loves all Black people! But I’m talking about Black on Black crime, as evidenced yesterday when a friend of mine home was broken into after she had gone to bed, and woke up with a pistol in her face! The two perps were NOT, Asians, Muslim, Native American, or White, but YOUNG,BLACK,MALES! You may continue to make excuses for this type of behavior, but the fact remains, that more Blacks are killed by other Blacks than whites.I say dress like a thug, get treated like a thug! I can remember right here in Atlanta when I was growing up, many Black people didn’t even lock their doors at night,because there was no fear of Black criminals!

      • Porsha

        No one is making excuses Uncle Tom Bill, i too am a native of Atlanta, but the way you dress does not give anyone the right to kill you. No i dont like hoodies and if i had a son he would not wear a hoodie, but the fact still remains that he was an innocent young man gunned down for no reason.

        In Douglasville you see white children in black gear and long black trench coats, black combat boots looking like the next unibomber, but no one is following them because they look suspicious, and the reason is because they are white.

        Black on black crime is a problem that should not go ignored, but close your eyes, imagine Trayvon being your son, then come back and tell me how you would feel……… would you say, ” well he should have not been dressed like a thug”. No, you would want justice. Stop letting your dissapointment with young black males cloud your mind so much so that you loose compassion.

        This young mans life was taken from him….. and the world will never know what he could have become.

  • Judson Witham
