I remember having to have "the talk" with him about how to "be a black man in America" after Trayvon's murder. No mother should have to warn her son about the dangers of being black in America, but unfortunately I did and I will have to continue to teach him how to be black and safe in this country. I am very sad about this.
Hopefully I can contain my anger to just this one post. How is it possible for a man who followed a 16 year old "suspicious" teen and AGAINST the advice of the POLICE continued to follow him, and in the end shoots this child armed with only a package of skittles and Arizona Iced Tea get off completely??
I need for people to think for a moment...it is late at night, you are a teen trying to get home, and some stranger is following you...what would you do? If anyone who should have been able to use Stand Your Ground should have been Trayvon because HE was being followed. BUT because he was a black male walking at night...it's hunting season and he is subject to be profiled and killed. I am sorry that Zimmerman got his assed whooped by this teen, but if someone was following you at night I would think that you would have the right to protect yourself. He was being targeted and the man responsible for his murder is now free to walk this earth while that child will never get the chance to graduate, go to college, get a job, get married, have children...he is DEAD.
This is yet another example of Amerikkkan Justice.
"Marissa Alexander had never been arrested before she fired a bullet at a wall one day in 2010 to scare off her husband when she felt he was threatening her. Nobody got hurt, but this month a northeast Florida judge was bound by state law to sentence her to 20 years in prison.
Alexander, a [BLACK] 31-year-old mother of a toddler and 11-year-old twins, knew it was coming. She had claimed self-defense, tried to invoke Florida's "stand your ground" law...." (source: http://bigstory.ap.org/content/woman-gets-20-year...
The more all of this injustice sinks the more angry I become. I pray that the Martin family civilly sue the hell out of Zimmerman. They deserve some justice when Florida denied them judicial justice.
If I were this woman, being the detective that I am, I would figure out a way to spy on homeboy and figure out exactly where he was going at 2 am in the morning; take pictures; talk to a lawyer; and divorce that arse.
If he is cheating on you, he could be bringing home diseases and drama. He is not respecting you and you and your children deserve better than this. DEMAND more and if he can't deliver...leave post haste.
