A supporter of George Zimmerman, has placed ads for the sale of Gun Range Targets that resemble the slain teenager. The Gun Range Targets have a blank face, but a figure wearing a hoodie, has skittles tucked into the pocket and iced tea in hand, making the identity of the targets namesake obvious. They also have a cross hair target directly on the chest of the target. It is a clear and unmistakable reference to the fact that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, in the chest. The ad for the targets are marketed toward Zimmerman’s supporters. It says, that the targets are ideal for those that “support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug”.
To his credit, Mark O’Mara, George Zimmerman’s attorney called the sale of the targets, “hate-mongering”. He further stated that “This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility”. The seller of the targets, reportedly sold out of his entire inventory, within two days!
