No Justice No Peace
I can’t believe this has happened, but then again of course I can. After following the trial of George Zimmerman, the man who hunted down and killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin, and reading so many racist comments after every YouTube clip, article and link, it makes sense that Zimmerman was found not guilty. Of anything. Murder. Manslaughter. Nothing. I mean, shit, if I got drunk and drove my car into someone I’d probably get manslaughter. This guy got out of his car with a loaded gun that had a live round in the chamber, followed a kid home, blocked the way to his door and then chased him down and killed him. Go to hell George Zimmerman, and fuck you Fox News and all the assholes on twitter who think racist vigilantes are cool and fuck everyone who gave even one dollar to this fake cop/judge and jury who decided who deserved to live and die that night. My heart goes out to Trayvon Martin’s family and friends and to every person who has to live in fear for just being who they are. Today that fear just got watered and helped to grow like an invasive poisonous plant. Sadness to anger to sadness to anger.
The NAACP’s petition to prosecute Zimmerman on Civil Rights charges is impossible to sign at the moment, but I’m going to try again tomorrow. Also here are some protests happening in NYC today.
