GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A Piedmont radio station is organizing a movement in support the family of an unarmed 17-year-old teen shot to death in Florida.
WJMH, better known as 102 Jamz, is sending empty bags of Skittles to the police department in Sanford, Fla. That's where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood crime watch captain George Zimmerman last month.
Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense, and he hasn't been arrested. Martin was found with only a cell phone, a bag of Skittles and an iced tea after he was shot.
"We do have a voice outside of Sanford, and the people of North Carolina can demonstrate their voice," said Santillian, host of the Wild Out morning show.
The bags of Skittles are empty, Santillian said, to show the emptiness Martin's friends and family feel after he was killed.
More information about the station's can be seen on the 102 Jams website.
