black residents offended by home owners association email warning: “If you see any group of young black males in the neighborhood after school, chances are they are up to no good and should be reported as suspicious persons”

Residents offended by home owners association email warning of 'young black males'

A Neighborhood Watch sign stands outside the gated The Retreat at Twin Lakes community where Trayvon Martin was shot by George Michael Zimmerman while on Neighborhood Watch patrol March 20, 2012 in Sanford, Florida.

A home owners association (HOA) in Walnutbend Texas sent an email to its members asking them to report “any group of young black males” to authorities. The email was motivated by an assault at a local convenient store that occurred Monday night.

The email described in Mondays attack as being black, and went on to request of its members that, “If you see any group of young black males in the neighborhood after school, chances are they are up to no good and should be reported as suspicious persons to the Constables.”

Samantha Howell, a resident in the neighborhood who has four sons that walk to school, is concerned that her sons will be profiled and have the police called on them for simply trying to make it to school. “That’s very disturbing,” Howell said, “because they’re not doing anything. They were just walking home from school.”

Other residents in the neighborhood didn’t seem to mind the tone of the email stating that, if a crime has been committed in the neighborhood, residents should do whatever they can to limit other assaults.

Seller of Trayvon Martin Gun Range Targets Sold Out in Two Days

Seller of Trayvon Martin Gun Range Targets Says They Sold Out in Two Days

“My main motivation was to make money off the controversy,” said the seller of a gun range target designed to resemble murdered Florida teen Trayvon Martin in an email to Local 6 reporter Mike DeForest.

The seller remains unidentified despite the correspondence.

The Orlando-based news station says it spotted an ad for the targets — since removed — on a “popular firearms auction website.” They feature a black hoodie similar to the one worn by Martin on the night he was shot by self-appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, along with a drawing of a Skittles bag and a can of iced tea.

The seller is reportedly a supporter of Zimmerman who believes “he is innocent and that he shot a thug.”

Zimmerman’s lawyer, Mark O’Mara, rejected the support, calling the targets “the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility.” He expressed concern that “this type of hatred” is “going to make it more difficult to try this case.”

According to the seller, others are much more keen on the item. Though they would not say how many $8 ten-packs were produced, they claim the response has been “overwhelming,” and the targets “sold out in 2 days.”
