Today in history: On February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin, 17 years old and unarmed, was shot and killed in cold blood in Sanford, Florida by neighborhood watch vigilante George Zimmerman.
After ignoring an order from the police department, George Zimmerman profiled, followed, confronted and murdered Trayvon. The Sanford police department then proceeded to allow George Zimmerman to go home, a free man, with his murder weapon. A massive wave of outrage followed, with huge protests in Florida and around the country demanding justice for Travyon Martin and an end to racist brutality and killings in the U.S.
