A neighborhood watch captain went on an illegal patrol and profiled an innocent child as a rogue, thug criminal, who he decided, without reason, deserved to be followed in the darkness and when he caught him he questioned and killed him.

His only reason given for his erroneous beliefs was that the child was Black and did not belong in the neighborhood. To defend himself with claims of "stand your ground" and "self defense" he concocted a series of demonstrable lies, claiming the child tried to take away the weapon he himself carried everywhere he went and that he was beaten to within an inch of his life by Trayvon Martin, who had no DNA or other trace evidence on his hands. Zimmerman was covered with his own blood; evidence that Martin never touched Zimmerman at all.
