It’s been reported a cop in Florida has actually been fired (for once) over having “Trayvon Martin shooting targets.” … Wow. I hope he is monitored and society makes sure he is never re-hired as a pig or anyone in a position of authority… He also should be watched, I believe, because anyone this sick is showing some serious signs of an illness that poses a danger to society. Only question I have is if there are two other cops that were in on this, why the hell are they not fired also? Will they rehire this racist later? … Keep ya eye’s open…

Sgt. Ron King of Port Canaveral Police Department was permanently relieved from duty after an investigation revealed that King offered the Trayvon Martin hoodie range targets to two of his fellow officers.
John Walsh, interim CEO of the Canaveral Port Authority, said the two officers saw the shooting targets in King’s vehicle but turned down the offer.
“Port Canaveral Police Department considers that behavior unacceptable,” Walsh said of King’s conduct.
In May of 2012, Your Black World reported that Trayvon Martin hoodie targets were being sold online:
An online retailer selling Trayvon Martin gun range targets claims they have sold out within two days.
Although the paper targets do not depict the 17-year-old’s face, they feature an image of a black hoodie that has crosshairs across the chest.
A bag of Skittles is tucked inside the pocket of the jumper, while a hand holds a can of iced tea, according to WKMG.
Martin was wearing a hoodie and had just purchased Skittles and iced tea when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida on February 26, according to police reports.
In February of 2012, unarmed teen Trayvon Martin was gunned down by neighborhood vigilante George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is awaiting trial on a second-degree murder charge in Martin’s death.
Martin family attorney Ben Crump spoke harshly of Sgt. King’s possession of the Trayvon Martin shooting targets.
“It 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,” Crump said in a statement. “Such a deliberate and depraved indifference to this grieving family is unacceptable.
