NOT GUILTY! George Zimmerman NOT GUILTY!
On Saturday July 13th 2013 I know I was glued to the television and social media anticipating the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial like most of the nation. George Zimmerman was on trial for the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. He was facing Murder in the 2nd Degree, Man Slaughter and Not Guilty charges. This nationwide trial played out in the media as well as social media from the day it happened on February 26, 2012. Well! The all Caucasian women jury accept for one ethnic women found George Zimmerman Not Guilty on all charges. I know a lot of people were shocked but I was not. I knew deep down in my gut that George Zimmerman was going to walk. After all when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin the authorities did not arrest him or charge him for 1 months and 16 days. If this is not a case of racism you can best believe if the roles were reversed Trayvon Martin would have been arrested on the spot and spent all his time in jail until the verdict and the verdict would have Murder in the 2nd degree. George Zimmerman got to live at home with an ankle monitor. Wow! I blame the Sanford Police Department for miss handling the case at the beginning and the State of Florida for not proving their case. I watched the trial from the beginning. When I they played in George Zimmerman’s video tape his account of what happened he was not sure and lying. Anyone watching could see that his story had all kind of inconsistencies in it. Let alone all the screaming he supposed to have been doing while getting his head bang on the cement. You’re getting your head bang repeatedly yet you’re able to screaming for help repeatedly. Really! When George Zimmer went to the doctor to get a note for work and turn down the medical advice to get a Cat-Scan. The whole trial made me Disgusted! This Not Guilty verdict just gave people the right in Florida and any other state with “Stand Your Ground Law” the right kill an unarmed person if they fell their life is in danger or if their getting their A__ kicked by someone. This “Stand Your Ground Law” should be outlawed because there are going to be a lot more Trayvon Martin’s being killed. All you people that say it is not about race you know deep down you are in denial. Racism has be going on for since the beginning of time and to say we have evolved is wrong. We have not evolved enough to stop things like this from happening. For all you young people of color get an education become lawyers, judges, senators and even president so just maybe the next generations can stamp out this thing called RACISM.
