Some seriously high-level trolling going on here. Apparently, they sold out almost immediately.

I'm not going to give my personal opinion on this product, as it would likely lead to a 'forum ban for expressing unpopular ideas'.

So I'll just leave this here.

Enjoy!

I don't see any semblance to the Treyvon Martin.

Buck, buddy, have you seen Osama Ben Ladin targets that showed up after 9/11?

Buddy, you got trolled by the libs. You need to raise your standards, otherwise you will fall for every little piece of crap someone decides to publish.

Well, the face is left blank....

On the other hand, 'Skittles and Ice Tea' in the pocket isn't just a random reference.

That site has nearly 2 dozen trackers on it... Wtf.

Also I could understand a more adult case, but was a kid... Kinda in the realm of ****** up and immature. (I get notorious terrorist master minds)

And this is coming from a guy who just went on a Remington 700, and AK shooting spree in the woods last week.

So it's more like... Really?

Stupid. Anyone who buys one of these targets online (i.e. probably with a traceable credit card) is potentially going to have a tough time defending themselves if they ever have to shoot a person in self-defense, if that person happens to be a minority.

Because a random kid who, at most, got into a fight with a paranoid vigilante and got shot for it is the same as a completely unrepentant mass murderer....

This topic reminds me of that psychological exercise where psychologist shows a picture and different people see different things in the picture.

I look at the picture that Buck linked and I see a sort of generic person. Buck looks at the same picture and they see Treyvon Martin.

To me the whole topic is an attempt of biased media persons to create a story out of nothing. Must have been slow news days.

1. Zimmerman is clearly guilty of vigilantism he was told by 9-11 not to engage travon by ignoring that order he put himself in harms way and thus will get 2nd degree murder. clean cut and dry

2. The only reason This bulldoo is on the news is because they are trying to target the lack of retreat laws in FL. This entire bull is political they knew Zimmerman was guilty on Day one they just wanted to drum it up for the gun grabbers and gun control freaks.

3. Nobody will every disarm the yanks. If you think it will happen do me a favor youtube this "FPSRussia" no he is not Russian he lives in Georgia USA and thats on his family farm there are millions of yankies like him who will never be disarmed.

4. a.The fact some clown sold targets is pretty sick
4. b. But is it any sicker than the guy who shot the kid or
4. c. the politicians who are using the kids death for political power

"FPS Russia" FTW !

Are you just trolling, or are you really this stupid? Besides the obvious clothing and items in the person's pockets, how about we look at what the person who made the targets has to say:

An online seller told Orlando’s WKMG-TV he wanted to profit off Trayvon Martin’s death and designed the paper targets to resemble the dead Florida teenager.

So yeah, don't give me this bull**** about "we don't know who it is".

No, it's perfectly justified disgust at the depths people will sink to in order to make a bit of money.

I agree that it is very low morally. That is why I did not buy any. I don't approve of such low moral actions. To me, it is right there with people buying nazi flags and girls wearing shirts that proclaim that they are sperm dumpsters. Very poor taste. Disgusting? Yes, I can sign up to that.

However. While I do not approve of such actions, I don't see anything illegal about it.

Who said anything about it being illegal? It's perfectly possible to consider someone a worthless waste of oxygen who would best contribute to humanity by blowing their own head off without suggesting that they are guilty of any crimes.

Of course it very well could be illegal, since they're using someone else's image without permission for commercial purposes. Obviously that wouldn't result in criminal charges, but I would not be surprised if the person who made the targets ends up getting sued and losing.

So you think making money off of someones death in a crime is ok? (Directly for profit as opposed to byproduct of) Also in this instance v. say a mass murdering **** wit? Which is still in lewd taste. (Well good to know all those hippies wearing Che Guevara shirts are in the right now.)

So westbro getting donations from their protests from soldiers deaths. (Think they also protested at an 8 year old girls funeral who got shot at the congress woman's public speaking too. ******* classy mother ******* amirite?) So you're ok being in that kinda mind set...

Ok just checking.

First: wow, just wow.

Second: this kind of reminds me of the Men in Black target range.
