I’ve kept quiet for too long about the recent ‘not guilty‘ verdict of George Zimmerman.
For years we’ve watched how “Justice” serves the public.
Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison for standing up in what he believed in.
Officers in LA were found ‘not guilty’ for relentlessly beating Rodney King which was caught on video.
George Zimmerman was found ‘not guilty’ for killing a young kid because he looked suspicious.
My heart goes out to Trayvon Martin‘s family. It’s one thing to have your child die before you. It’s another to lose your child to a tragic yet avoidable death, to hear him scream for help and watch the killer walk away free to do it again.
I’m sick with this sort of injustice. How is a jury of all women George Zimmerman’s peers? How can they truly, in their heart believe that this demented man (who is clearly not 100% there) is not guilty of pursuing this child after he had been advised not to.
They really tried to make Trayvon look like a bad seed. But first, he’s a kid…you show me a person that has never made a mistake in their life and I’ll show you a confounded liar. Secondly, is anything that Trayvon did worthy of death? Convicted pedophiles and rapists are able to walk the earth among us. But this child had to die for being a young black kid walking while with a hoodie? Is this a new offence I’m unaware of?
Since when do security guards walk with guns? Perhaps things are different in the US but with all the gun violence in the world today, security companies really need to check out who they’re giving guns to and making it legal for them to kill at their discretion.
#RIP Trayvon. Everyone, we must work together to ensure this young life wasn’t taken in vain.
