In a disgusting display of an attempt to make money an unidentified entrepreneur is selling gun range targets based off the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Although Martin's face does not appear on the paper targets, it feature a hoodie with a bag of Skittles tucked in the pocket and a hand is holding a can resembling iced tea with crosshairs aimed at the chest.
According to local 6, the advertisement for the targets 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.
Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara said of the target:
"This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility."
O'Mara said he is worried 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 saying:
"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,"
In an email exchange with local 6 news the seller wrote:
"My main motivation was to make money off the controversy."
The seller would not disclose how many paper targets had been made, but said in an email, "The response is overwhelming. I sold out in 2 days."
Some of those targets were sold to two Florida gun dealers, according to the seller.
This is the most disturbing thing we’ve ever seen, how can someone do something like this?
