Georgia club promotes ‘Black Out Party’ for Trayvon Martin and ‘Fallen Soldiers’

A Savannah Georgia nightclub is hosting a party to honor Trayvon Martin with the tagline “and All of Our Fallen Soldiers!!!”

A phone call to a Tampa radio show, Schnitt Show, a caller asked “what would Trayvon Martin’s parents think about his name and likeness being used to promote ‘Let’s Get Drunk for Trayvon Night’ at a violence-ridden club?”

The focus by the Tampa radio station and others now spot lights the event at the Frozen Paradise, which proudly promotes the event with a poster on their Facebook page.

Now the poster and information on the event has been removed from their Facebook page and no one answered a call to confirm if the events will still occur.

Protests and frustration has continued after George Zimmerman was earlier this month of second-degree murder by a jury in Seminole County, Florida.

The radio show’s post listed some of the crimes that have occurred at this Night Club over the last few years,

“Ironically, Frozen Paradise has been the site of plenty of gun violence according to the “Savannah Morning News”. In 2000, Willie Kenneth Wingster, a patron at the bar was shot near the club, and police complained that patrons did not cooperate with the police. That shooting spurred Savannah’s Downtown Business Association to ask the city to close the bar. The year before, Sam Brown III was shot to death in a crowd outside Frozen Paradise. This past Saint Patrick’s Day, Sidney Grant was shot to death outside the club. In 2008, “Connect Savannah” reported that a fight in the club’s parking lot ended with one group shooting at another and later firing at the police.”
