Affidavit: Trayvon Was ‘Profiled’

While the details surrounding Trayvon Martin’s death are still disputed, the prosecution has filed an affidavit alleging that shooter George Zimmerman “profiled” the teenager as he walked home from buying iced tea and a bag of Skittles. Zimmerman “assumed Martin was a criminal. Zimmerman felt Martin did not belong in the gated community and called the police,” prosecutors wrote. While talking about Martin, Zimmerman said “these assholes, they always get away,” according to the document, which also states that the teenager tried to run home but was followed.
