Should George Zimmerman Receive The Same Type Of Justice Travon Martin Received ?
The tensions over the slaying of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has spawned threatening online comments with one Twitter user going so far as to create the hashtag @KillZimmerman, an example of postings that authorities have apparently not acted on.
A Twitter account called @KillZimmerman was created March 24 in which the user posted a photo of Zimmerman in the cross hairs of a gun. A quote on the account user’s Twitter page reads: RiP “This Page Is 4 Da Ppl Who Believe Zimmerman Should Be Shot Dead In The Street The Same Way TRAYVON Was. No Justice No Peace #KillZimmerman.”
The owner of the @KillZimmerman account wrote 454 tweets from March 24 to March 28 and, as of Friday afternoon, it had 463 followers. ABC reached out to the owner of @KillZimmerman via a tweet, but he or she did not respond to a request for comment. Despite outrage across the blogosphere, the account has not been taken down or suspended.
