Trayvon Martin Gun Target Being Sold Because the World is Horrible

Categories: WTF Florida

Here is a story about capitalism and humanity at its most vile and disgusting. Orlando news station WKMG discovered that Trayvon Martin gun range targets are for sale. They tracked down the unidentified seller who said, "My main motivation was to make money off the controversy." Excuse us while we clean up the mixture of vomit and tears that just exploded on our face.

This asshat decided to print up packs of paper targets that featured a hoodie, a pack of skittles, iced tea and a target. He started advertising his product around the web, and now says that they've sold out. The original advertisement stated that the sellers "support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug."

WKMG was only able to contact the seller by email, and the person did reveal their identity, though the site keeps him anonymous.

"The response is overwhelming. I sold out in 2 days," he wrote.

Though, after he realized he was talking to a reporter he said that he would no longer sell the target.

George Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara, to his credit, was eager to distance himself from the product.

"It's this type of hatred -- that's what this is, it's hate-mongering -- that's going to make it more difficult to try this case," he said.

Trayvon's parents should be indicted for not teaching the aspiring gangster any commonsense.

It figures the dummy's mother worked for Miami-Dade County. So many idiots there. She should be arrested, instead she is retired living off people's cash gifts. Watch. More mothers will be encouraged to tell their kids to pick fights with Hispanics with guns. They too will want the cash.

Trayvon's dumb as rocks parents should be indicted for raising such a dumb kid. In fact, the dumb father didn't even know Trayvon was missing until 20 hours after he got shot. Those parents should have taught that kid not to mess with his elders. Their fault he got hisself killed.

What a flaccid piece of road shit!! I hope Karma bits him in the ass, then spits it out in his face!! Always some sorry ass cocksucker to try and profit of someone's misery. Hell, I'm broke too but hot damn.

Too you, Mr./Ms./It, you're a pathetic piece of shit. But I think you know that already, don't you?!?!?

It's stories like this that make me sad for humanity and the kind of mentalities society is supporting.

The guy said it:  "My main motivation was to make money off the controversy."  He did this with no thought of the family of Trayvon Martin and no thought of human decency, consideration or basic compassion.  The hateful and cowardous nature of he actions, in my opinion, should be a consideration for being charged with a hate crime or depraved indifference that incites violence (though I know it doesn't work that way).

I will say this to this coward:  Step up and be recognized.  Since you thought it was such a great idea, own it.

When Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson gather their herd and come to Florida, they make money on this, too...!! I am not defending the targets, I think it's wrong to make money off of someone's death.But, those two pimps mentioned above should be ashamed of all the publicity and money they made off of Trayvon, utterly disgraceful...!!!

Parent's fault

I blame Trayvon's parents. First they gave him a stupid name. Trayvon? Then it is their fault they did not teach him about crackers and rednecks. Everyone knows rednecks have guns. The parents should have educated their dumba** kid.This is Darwinism - reducing the herd.

American RedNecks... the scum of the United States.. Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, West Virginia, South Carolina and add to that toxic mix, the Panhandle of Florida.... are all full of morons and bigots.  Intelligence and empathy ARE hereditary (proven!), which makes the hope for the citizens of these backward States ever evolving into sane and intelligent patriots pretty much non-existent. The young people who flee are those who are disgusted by their neighbors and as soon as they are old enough they FIND a way to make their escape. Those who stay, stay because they simply CANNOT see farther then their noses and so 'accept' all that they see and hear from their neighbors - who only see and hear what is on the TV machine, dailed permanently to Faux News.

Parents? Hello?

Black criminals need to learn not to commit crimes. Yo, parents?

It is 85 degrees in Florida. Only criminals wear hoodies. Ask any cop who reviews security camera tapes.

The parents are to blame. They should teach their kids to show respect. The cracker they attack might have a gun?

No worse than promoting Gay Marriage knowing that Homosexuals are the largest perpetrators of the AIDS virus today. In fact I would say that homosexuals are worse than this guy. http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/...

I live in a cold state and I wear a hoodie A LOT.  Here we are mid-may and it's still getting down to the 40's in the evening.

I'm 34 year old IT professional.  My wife and I pull down over $150K annually and we're joyously raising our 18mo old son.

Who's going to explain it to him when someone shoots his hardworking father for his choice in shirts?

Some punk wearing baggy pants and a hoodie is about to commit a crime or it just committed a crime.

Citizens need to take more target practice.

I see a punk kid wearing a hoodie in Florida and I think he is a criminal. A hoodie when it F 80 degrees? When will these idiot kids learn?

Almost as dumb as wearing their pants down around their knees.

Wear hoodie, get shot
Wear hoodie, get shot

What does it take to get dumb black criminals from wearing hoodies while committing crimes?

At least potential victims can do target practice.

Where can I buy one of these targets?

The more the country progresses in race relations the more you see it's only pretending to let go of the racist ideals it was built on.

So he's a chicken shit asshat. If he's so proud and supportive, why not revel his name?? Fucker! I don't care if he thinks Zimmerman is innocent, if you believe something use your name!

DHANNA YOUNG!

Are you clueless or just mentally ill?  Why would you say something so close-minded and hateful?  That family has quite enough to deal with without finding crap like that about their son and brother.

Every culture has there names; you may not like them, but that is the type of opinion that doesn't really need to be voiced.  Especially about a kid that was violently killed.

As for the other part of your completely in accurate statement - the man that actually shot the boy was hispanic - so neither a "cracker" or "redneck".  If you're going to use racial slurs, you really should know what race it is that you should be using it against first.

As for Darwin...as much as I agree with Darwin in a lot of instances, this isn't one of those instances where Darwin seems appropriate.  This wasn't Darwinistic evolution at its finest, this was a sad and unfortunate, and (in my opinion) completely avoidable mistake.

Your comment was in bad taste, poor form, and less tact.

People in this country are more concerned with wardrobe than they are character, and then wonder why America is going down the toilet.

We don't "wonder" why America is going down the toilet--we just look to our leader and realize why.

Me, I'm nothing for him to worry about, I believe in karma. However, if you believe you're doing something so horribly wrong for what you perceive to be the right reasons, then shout your name from the rooftop. Don't be a pansy assed anonymous bitch about it.
