Cop Uses Trayvon Martin Gun Targets

A Florida police officer was leading a target practice session with two other officers and a civilian last week when he surprised his pupils by pulling out gun-practice targets with Trayvon Martin’s image on it. When asked if they’d like to use the targets resembling the slain teenager, the group offered a resounding “no.” Now, the officer, Sgt. Ron King, has been fired. “It is absolutely reprehensible that a high-ranking member of the Port Canaveral Police, sworn to protect and serve Floridians, would use the image of a dead child as target practice,” said an attorney for Martin’s parents. Port Canaveral, where King worked, is 50 miles from where Martin was slain.
