trayvon martin shooting practiceA so-called entrepreneur is profiting off of Trayvon Martin‘s death by selling gun range targets made in his image, TV station WKMG Local 6 reports.

Martin’s face does not appear on the targets. But they clearly depict a hooded figure holding Skittles and a drinking beverage (Arizona Iced Tea). Trayvon purchased both of these items before neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman shot the 17-year-old unarmed teen dead.

According to an advertisement for the targets that had been posted on a popular firearms auction website, the sellers stated they “support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug.”

That online ad has since been removed.

“This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility,” said Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara.

O’Mara said he is worried about how Martin’s parents will react to the image of their son on a target intended to be used for shooting practice.

The attorney is also concerned the targets will further inflame the community.

“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,” said O’Mara.

It does not appear that this case is headed down a path of civility. How many of you feel that George Zimmerman’s murder case will equal the racial tension of the O.J. Simpson trial?
