Today is the Million Hoodie March for slain teen Trayvon Martin. Many of you may already know who Trayvon was or maybe you might have heard his story on the news. On February 26th, 2012, Trayvon was walking home from a trip to the store when he made an encounter with neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman. A 911 call that was made prior to the shooting, painted an image of what truly happened that fateful night. Zimmerman was told not to follow the teen by the dispatcher, but he insisted that "black males" have been burglarizing the area lately. Although precise details of the event have not yet been released; the unarmed 17 year old was fatally shot in the chest and died at the scene. Zimmerman claimed that it was self defense, and he was not arrested.
This is a very unfortunate situation and I believe justice has not been served. I have a 17 year old brother and I cannot imagine going through something like this. As much as I would like to stay diplomatic in this matter, I just can't, because I am just too aware of this system and its many injustices. Even though Trayvon cannot be brought back, I think his killer should be brought to justice.
There is a petition currently online to bring George Zimmerman to justice. It will not take up to a minute to sign it, so please go to change.org. This could have been your 17 year old brother, cousin, son, friend. Think and sign.
