Trayvon Martin Inspired Shooting Targets Sell Out

A gun range target with Skittles and iced tea in the pocket of a faceless, hood-clad figure has sold out in two days. "The response is overwhelming," the unnamed seller told Orlando's WKMG news team over e-mail. The station did not identify the seller, and said it found the ad on a popular firearms auctioning website. The paper targets, which were made to look like Trayvon Martin, were being sold in packs of 10 for $8.

The description of the product reads:

"Everyone knows the story of Zimmerman and Martin. Obviously we support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug. Each target is printed on thick, high quality poster paper with a matte finish! The dimensions are 12"x18 (The same as Darkotic Zombie Targets). This is a ten pack of targets."

Reporter Mike DeForest spoke with the seller who wrote, "My main motivation was to make money off the controversy."

Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, told the news station that he felt the targets were offensive, saying, "This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility. 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."
