Trayvon Martin vs George Zimmerman Court Case

Trayvon Martin Murder Case

The police chief in Sanford, Florida, says he is temporarily stepping aside because his role in the Trayvon Martin case has become a "Distraction."

Bill Lee's announcement came a day after the Sanford City Commission gave him a no-confidence vote over his handling of the teenager's fatal shooting.

Justice Department officials planned to meet today with the parents of Martin, who was unarmed when he was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in the Orlando suburb last month. The federal agency has launched a civil rights investigation into the case that has riveted the nation. Ref. CNN

Obama said the nation should do some "soul-searching to figure out how something like this happens."

"I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and that everybody pulls together, federal, state and local, to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened," Obama said. Ref. CNN

Trayvon Martin vs George Zimmerman Court Case History & Civil Business Politics

Nearly three in four Americans think police should arrest George Zimmerman after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin one month ago in Florida, according to a CNN/ORC poll released today.

In the same survey, only about one in four felt that neighborhood watch members should carry guns, but a little more than half approved of "stand your ground" laws.

Martin was walking to his father's fiancee's home in a gated Sanford, Florida, community, when neighborhood watch volunteer Zimmerman shot the unarmed teen, according to police. Zimmerman told police he shot Martin in self-defense, and he has not been charged. The U.S. Department of Justice and Florida officials have launched investigations into the shooting. Ref. CNN
