Police: Trayvon Martin death ‘indefinitely avoidable’
Just a short two weeks after the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, police in Sanford Florida had begun labeling pieces of the case and even deliberating their own thoughts on the investigation according to new documents released.
The documents also contained what is called a ‘capias request’ which is a legal ‘police’ request to have somebody taken into custody and delivered to the state attorney. This was presumably done, so, because of Zimmerman having ignored strict police orders to not chase down Martin and ignore him.
“The encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman, if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement, or conversely if he had identified himself to Martin as a concerned citizen and initiated dialog (sic) in an effort to dispel each party’s concern” the request said. “There is no indication that Trayvon Martin was involved in any criminal activity.” – Police documents
