Cop canned over Trayvon Martin shooting target


Ron King, a Port Canaveral police sergeant, was fired from his job after an internal investigation reportedly showed he offered some officers a hoodie target resembling Trayvon Martin to use for shooting practice, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Apparently, sanity prevailed as the on-duty officers were on right on target: They refused, officials said.

King later posted a YouTube video stating that he didn't intend for the Trayvon target to be used for shooting but was designed "to use a bad situation as a learning tool," according to the report.

The shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17, by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman  in February 2012 in Zimmerman's gated Sanford townhouse community sparked an international outcry.
