"The lawyer for the family of a black North Carolina man shot dead by a white homeowner securing his neighborhood against "hoodlums" called the shooter "George Zimmerman 2.0."
Justin Bamberg, an attorney representing the family of 20-year-old victim Kouren-Rodney Thomas, said there were parallels between the Raleigh shooting and the 2012 Florida shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Cops and neighbors said Chad Copley, 39, shot Thomas early Sunday morning after lying to a 911 operator about being part of a neighborhood watch group, and complaining about "hoodlums" near his house." http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/unarmed-black-n-man-killed-george-zimmerman-2-0-lawyer-article-1.2747561
