TRAYVON MARTIN’S DEATH
On February 26, 2012, Trayvon, who was 17-year-old, was in Sanford, Florida, visiting his relatives. He decided to get out of the house for a walk when George Zimmerman, the then-28-year-old neighborhood watch coordinator of his community, shot the teen alleging self-defense.
That crime was highly publicized as people considered it was a race-related murder. George was found not guilty after being arrested under the charge of second-degree murder.
