I know, this is yet another blog about the Trayvon/Zimmerman case. Surprise, Surprise! People are twitting like crazy and already death threats are being heard. The NAACP has already said they want to bring a civil suit against him. The drama has begun. The black and white divide has just opened and with each accusation it is slowly but surely getting bigger.
Trayvon Martin is dead. Nothing is going to bring him back. It's a tragedy and I feel for the family because I can't imagine losing my sons.
He was arrested, charged and given a trial. He was acquitted by the jury. Whether you agree with the decision makes no difference in the judicial system. There have been many cases where I did not agree with the jury's decision... Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson (yet another trial that turned into a race battle) but you live with it. You get up in the morning and get on with your day, on with your life. (excluding the families involved of course)
Death threats... George Zimmerman is going to be walking around the rest of his life with a bulls eye on his back. There is talk of riots. Sharpton and Jackson on their soapboxes trying to stir up even more hatred than has already taken hold of people.
Was Zimmerman totally innocent? Absolutely not! He should have locked his doors and waited for police to arrive. Hindsight is 20/20 unfortunately the here and now is rife with emotions and fear.
Was Trayvon totally innocent? Absolutely not! People seem to be forgetting that he was NOT a child and according to the pictures and hospital report he was slamming Zimmerman's head into the concrete and punching him in the face. If he was just an innocent little boy walking home with Skittles and tea, he would not have beat the crap out of Zimmerman. Not to mention the pot in his system.
I think what needs to come out of this case is to re-examine the "Stand Your Ground" laws and he definitely should not be allowed anywhere near the town watch. I truly hope this country can calmly and peacefully move on. It's over and whether you agree or not, justice has been served.
