Justice for Trayvon Martin: George Zimmerman Case

Hello All,

I know this is not fashion related, but I am beyond outraged at the verdict of George Zimmerman.  I was among the many people glued to the television day after day, night after night, hearing every argument of what possibly happened the night that Trayvon Martin lost his life.

First of all, this man wanted to become a cop/lawyer so bad that he harassed the City of Sanford by calling 911 for every little thing (was reported that he called 911 because a neighbor had his garage door opened).  Trayvon was minding his own business.  He was not bothering anyone, and the following happens:

  • Zimmerman calls the police suspecting Martin of doing something suspicious when Martin was just walking home.
  • Not only does he follow Martin, but he starts chasing him after the 911 operator told him not to get out of the car
  • After he finds Martin, he then asks "What are you doing here?" That is none of your business!!
  • After Martin was trying to defend himself from this stranger, he shoots this boy in cold blood!!
The evidence was right there.  The proof was right there, and the jury find him NOT GUILTY OF ALL CHARGES! WHAT?! 

What made me upset about this whole trial was that it seemed as if Trayvon Martin was on trial, not Zimmerman, and the lawyers were badgering Rachel Jeantel because of the way she talked and looked.  It seemed like everyone was covering for this man who murdered this boy for nothing.  I know this has nothing to do with race, but Zimmerman racially profiled Trayvon Martin by saying, "he was no good" and "he's up to something".  What really made me steam is the fact that he actual 911 tapes were played, and Zimmerman says, "these coons always get away" and Sanford, FL police tried to cover it up!!

I am upset and outraged by this verdict.  A young man's life was lost, and the person who took his life is free.    The only thing we can do is look for justice and pray this does not happen to another person.  Trayvon Martin, may you continue to rest in peace, and we will always remember you.  #JusticeForTrayvon
