George Zimmerman is charged with 2nd degree murder!!!
The face of justice has surfaced, and George Zimmerman has finally been charged with second-degree murder!!!
From the start of this horrific ordeal, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton wanted George Zimmerman to be arrested for killing their son Trayvon Martin. Ever since the February 26 shooting of the unarmed teen in Sanford, Florida, the volunteer neighborhood watch captain has been in hiding, yet he was still a free man.
Today we all released a sigh of relief as Angela Corey, a Florida state attorney appointed a special prosecutor in this tragic case, announced that Zimmerman was under arrest and would be charged with second-degree murder.
I personally feel some what better that he has been arrested and is going to be held accountable for his reckless actions. I feel that George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in cold blood. He pursued him against the advice of the 911 dispatcher thus creating a platform for the confrontation as he approached the teen. He states that the teen broke his nose and slammed his head against the concrete, and I say damn right, he should have!!! I wish he could have taken that pistol and... Y'all know the rest!!!
Trayvon Martin was fighting for his life and unfortunately he lost that fight to a crazy, deranged
volunteer neighborhood watch captain...WTF... America is suppose to extend "Liberty and Justice for ALL" but Trayvon was not even extended the liberty of being able to safely walk to and from the store at 7 o'clock in the evening. He and his family had to wait 46 days for the state of Florida to determine that his killer was guilty (to any degree). When they searched his remains and found nothing but a bag of skittles and a can of Iced Tea nearby, that's when he should have been arrested, that alone said his murder was not warranted.
Again I say that someone throws flour on Kim Kardashian and they are immediately taken into custody, a man murders an unarmed child and he walks free for 46 days before being arrested... What is the world coming too???
As an African American I have had very little faith in the justice system as I have witnessed countless injustices relating to people of color, not to mention how the system exploits men of color by recycling them in the system and creating few avenues for rehabilitation or restoration.
Although my faith in the system has wavered, it was semi restored at 6:05 pm today!!!
My hope is that the family of this young man can begin the healing process and attempt to live a normal life!!!
