The silhouette on the paper target is faceless. But the hoodie, the Skittles and the iced tea leave nothing to the imagination. This is meant to be Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17-year-old shot to death in February in Sanford, Florida.
Skittles brand candy is clearly depicted in the targets. The Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, a division of Mars Inc., produces and markets Skittles. They could stop the sale of these targets by taking legal action against the Hiller Armament Company, which sells the targets online.
Stop the sale of these targets by signing our petition (at the link) to The Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company and Mars Inc.
This sums up where we seem to be heading:
The Florida “Stand Your Ground”/License to murder law is just lynching with a bullet – along with a get out of jail free card.
