Trayvon Martin Range Targets?

There are two sides to every story. Obviously the guy selling the targets supports Zimmerman. Remember one thing: Controversy sells.

An unidentified supporter of George Zimmerman sold gun range targets online featuring a figure meant to resemble slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin carrying Skittles, CBS affiliate WKMG reports.

The station reports that in an advertisement for the targets, which has since been removed, the sellers say they "support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug."

According to WKMG, the seller of the targets told them in an email exchange that the "main motivation was to make money off the controversy."

The seller reportedly said in an email that he sold out of the targets in two days.

Thanks to CBS News for the intel.
