I am going to try to keep this short and sweet. Not because I have nothing to say but more because so much has been said, voiced, written and expressed so much that me making a full blog about the Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman trial would just be lost in the billions of others who share similar frustrations of injustice.
I will say though a couple of things:
First of all, this trial will not go away and erase in anyone’s mind. In fact this trial will probably be not only one of the highlights of 2013 but will be probably be one of those “where were you when” events.
Second, as much as America prides themselves as a great country, they have once again shown how fucked up their justice system is.
Third. For those who keep denying and saying “NO IT IS NOT A RACIAL THING.” Stop living in your Dr. Phil dream world and wake up and smell the polluted air. You know it, I know it, everyone knows that racism not all but had some part to do with it.
Fourth. Though I am not surprised George Zimmerman got off, if I were Zimmerman I would honestly seek refuge in another country. I saw his brother on CNN who said that George feels like a free man now. Free man? Really? With over half of the American population alone looking to hunt him? Even the Black Panthers have put out a bounty hunt on him. I hate to say this but I think this will do more harm than good for Zimmerman. Either Zimmerman will get assaulted or even get killed for this crime or he will be tormented so much that he might go into a deep depression and try to kill himself.
Fifth. Until the American government and laws start protecting ALL CITIZENS equally unfortunately cases like these will continue to happen and not stop.
Sixth. Was I the only who found it quite ODD that the jury only consisted of 6 people to which most were white females???
And Seventh. Zimmerman says he is a self proclaimed MMA fighter but couldn’t defend himself from a 17 y/o teenager who had no weapons on him?? Really? REALLY????
RIP Trayvon Martin
