2012-02-23_Trayvon_Martin_17.jpgAccording to wikipedia on the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, United States, George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old Afro-American high school student. Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed race Hispanic man, was the neighborhood watch coordinator for the gated community where Martin was temporarily living and where the shooting took place. Zimmerman shot Martin, who was unarmed, during an altercation between the two.

Zimmerman was charged with Martin's murder but acquitted at trial on self-defense grounds. The incident was reviewed by the Department of Justice for potential civil rights violations, but no additional charges were filed, citing insufficient evidence. If you now think that tha was the end of the story, wait; again, according to wikipedia this is whath happened:

On May 12, 2016, it was announced that Zimmerman had offered the weapon with which he shot Martin for auction. After two unsuccessful auctions, due to completely overcrowded bids or a wave of negative reactions against the auction house, the auction was aborted. A few days later in May 2016, the weapon achieved a price of about 140,000 dollars. On May 18, 2016, the 9mm gun achieved a price of $ 250,000 on the United Gun Group's sales portal as "A Piece of American History" earned. With that earned money, Zimmerman wants to support "various interest groups".
