The Florida police department handling the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a self-appointed neighborhood watch leader admitted to ABC News tonight that investigators missed a possible racist remark by the shooter as he spoke to police dispatchers moments before the killing.

The admission comes a day after the Justice Department announced that it has launched an investigation of the slaying of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman last month as a possible hate crime.

On a tape of one of Zimmerman’s 911 calls the night of the shooting, he is heard saying under his breath what sounds like “f**ing coons.” Seconds later he confronted Martin and after a brief scuffle shot him dead.

    vigilantism never works and the NRA has no shame, despicable.

  • How can this be so hard for the world to see George is guilty? Please let me explain: Trayvon walking down a street minding his on business. When george came from out of no where. Keep this in mind Trayvon know nothing of the men..All he know is that this stranger is following him for no reason. With the fear racing he ask george (why are you following me)? George call 911 before he began following him.. Now he’s where I see george being guilty… Trayvon begin to run. George gets in his car to follower Trayvon again… Even thought the 911 operator ask him not to. If George didn’t have no intent of killing why did he take a 9mm? This leads me to believe that George had already put killing in his mind. Or he was trying to keep Trayvon there until the real cops got there. A Stranger is what Trayvon saw. Trayvon knew nothing of George. Why didn’t George just let Trayvon run? If Trayvon pose any threat. Why was he  trying to get away… Now while George is playing cops he and Trayvon meets. Trayvon being afraid of this stranger began to fight for his life. Let’s just say Trayvon was trying to take george gun…Wouldn’t you try to stop a stranger from killing you? Wouldn’t you fight back? Wouldn’t you yell for help? Wouldn’t you want to know why a stranger is following you? YES….  I read somewhere that george said they had alot of break ins… Ok…. You mean to tell me george didn’t have no intent? Yes he did he had already had made a deal with the devil. He had no right killiing this young men…. So what if Trayvon  gotten way…The 17yr old was affraid. Do this sound like a threat? hell no… Now george said he had scar’s to prove Trayvon fought him…. Dawm you don’t think Trayvon have a right to fight this stranger off…. Please people put yourself in Trayvon place. George was a stranger acting strange. How did Trayvon knew what george stinky thinking was thinking??? Trayvon didn’t know george. Why is it so hard to see the truth….. This was a ticking time bum(george). George may have killed this young men… But Trayvon soul still lives… Look on George face….
