The police did kill Trayvon

If a cop shot Trayvon Martin, then, yes, the cop should be sent to prison for manslaughter or second degree murder. A cop could have used a taser or called for backup before he discharged his weapon. But Zimmerman did not have such luxuries at his disposal. Where where the police to protect him? Where were the police to protect Trayvon? Police don't protect and serve anybody but themselves. If any harm should come to Zimmerman from this time forward, then it is proof positive that the police, military, and Homeland Security cannot keep Americans safe. Safety comes from self-protection and our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, even machine guns and tanks, if that is what is necessary for self-protection in this degenerating cesspool of corruption that is America.
