Skip to comments.Trayvon's lawyer: Enough 'blood on our hands'
Posted on 02/27/2013 6:21:18 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
One year ago today, a bullet pierced 17-year-old Trayvon Martins heart and the pulse of our nation.
When the general public initially learned of the tragic circumstances, a sense of outcry ensued as citizens struggled to reconcile the basic facts of the case with the law: George Zimmerman, 29, killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin who was walking home from a 7-Eleven with Skittles and an iced tea, wearing a hoodie because he looked suspicious, and the Sanford Police Department failed to arrest him. Throughout the past year, the controversy sparked continuous dialogue that evolved from a discussion on racial profiling, to an analysis of Stand Your Ground laws, and finally to a national examination of gun control and gun violence.
Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University students initiated the discussion on profiling and captured the essence of the tragedy in a simple phrase, I am Trayvon Martin. On March 19, 2012, students rallied at the doorstep of the Sanford courthouse chanting, I am Trayvon Martin. The students demanded answers from prosecutor Norm Wolfinger. The protest ignited what became a national movement. By the end of the week, people all across the nation took Trayvon Martins cause on as their own regardless of race, nationality, or creed.
Friday, March 23, 2012, culminated in President Obamas unforgettable statement, If I had a son, hed look like Trayvon. President Obamas remarks served as one of the boldest statements made during the past year condemning racial profiling and the willingness of the American people to accept such an arcane practice (consistent with his record as a senator when he sponsored the End Racial Profiling Act).
The initial public outcry led to the release of the 911 tapes where the public heard cries for help, which many believe to be Trayvon Martin's....

Skittles for Trayvon!A mind is a terrible thing to waste and Trayvon wasted his on drinking,drugs and gangbanging.A true poster child of the liberal left.Just another wasted yute.
A Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Award nominee if I've ever seen one.
Very well said and I agree completely with your evaluation of Travon the Thug who has achieved an ill-deserved sainthood through the commie media.
So, if Trayvon Martin had Bashed in George Zimmerman’s skull and killed him, would daddy be asking for him to be prosecuted? Or is it only because George defended himself with a handgun?
“Pierced the pulse”, now that’s some fine writing.
This woman is an attorney?
“Jasmine is a graduate of the University of Georgia, where she simultaneously earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in both African American Studies and Political Science, while also earning a minor in Spanish.”
How much longer is the MFM going to engage in this disgusting necrophilia? Makes me ill...
I have more respect for Psych majors.
Still lying their ass off.
Just another punk kid shot dead. Happens twice a day in Chicago. Oh wait...it’s not a big deal there because they are just shooting each other.
‘Blood on our hands’ indeed.
This idiot, the family, their idiot attorney Crump, the prosecutor, the DA, the enemedia, and a whole host of other racist a-holes do indeed have bolld on their hands.
Somoeone remind me - - what was the bounty that was placed on Zimmerman - dead or alive?
God I detest these bigoted bastids who want to Nifong an innocent Mr. Zimmerman.
bolld = blood.
But you probably guessed that.
I would have started the sentence with “On a dark and stormy night one year ago...”
But that might be considered racially insensitive (all that “darkness”/s;)
Miraculously, a full blown race riot was averted despite the unscrupulous reporting of the Trevon Martin affair by the main stream media. The evidence showed conclusively that Trevon Martin followed Zimmerman to his car and slammed his head onto the pavement and that Zimmerman fired his gun when Martin was on top of him.
So why is CNN (or HLN) serving up this “We are all Trayvon now” crap? There is not a single relevant fact in that whole silly piece.
This case should never have gone to trial and when Zimmerman is found not guilty there will be blood in the streets.
Zimmerman is not going to be found not guilty. He is going before a kangeroo court in front of a bought judge and jury and crooked prosecutor.
Another PowerPoint slide for the civil suit.
There should be an outcry in the black community about the dangers of guzzling “lean” for a quick, cheap high.
Give George Zimmerman a medal and a cash award for exterminating a useless gangbanger and saving the taxpayers a lot of money!
