One Month Later
I'm sure by now, you all have heard about the 17 year old teen that was killed by a neighborhood watch member last month. Words cannot express how this situation makes me feel. In fact, I can barely keep up with the case simply because it literally makes me sick to my stomach. I cannot understand how someone can take an innocence person's life. Rather or not the situation was racially motivated, I believe justice needs to be serviced.
George Zimmerman needs to be arrested simply because he did not follow proper orders in which he was giving- both by the law in which he is trying to hide behind and by the police operator. If I'm not mistaken, the "Stand Your Ground" law, states that you must be in harms way in order for it to protect you. Mr. Zimmerman was not in harms way when he started following Trayvon. I can understand if the tables were turned and it was Trayvon who was following Mr. Zimmerman, but he was not. In fact, I personally believe that Mr. Zimmerman was seeking a reaction from Trayvon in order to justify his actions. Once the operator told Mr. Zimmerman to stand his ground and not to go after Trayvon, the law should have been non in void.
Trayvon Martin could have been anyone's son, dad, grandfather and any race, Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian...you name it! Please show your support, violence and hatred of any kind, it needs to end here.
Today marks the one month anniversary of Mr. Martins death and I pray that it does not go in vain. My heart goes out to Travyon's family. He should not have to go that way.
