On Friday, April 6th actor Bill Cosby sat down with the Washington Post to weigh in on Trayvon Martin Case.
Cosby, a Navy veteran, explained to the newspaper:
“We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch.”
Martin was killed Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., by self-appointed neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who told police that a “confrontation” with the unarmed 17-year-old led him to shoot in self-defense.
“Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself. The power-of-the-gun mentality had him unafraid to confront someone. Even police call for backup in similar situations. When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody”.
Cosby is scheduled to emcee at the April 12 gala celebrating the reopening of the historic Howard Theatre in Northwest Washington and will perform April 28 at the Kennedy Center.
