NEWSFLASH: Trayvon Martin ISN’T On Trial. He’s Dead!
*Ain’t trying to be blunt. rude. or insensitive. Don’t want to offend. disrespect. or insult anyone.We walk through life hoping for a higher ground. Hoping for clarity amidst the confusion. Hoping for protection for the unprotected. When a bullet enters the chamber of the heart of a seventeen-year-old young man, his life ends. Over. Breathing ceases. No high school prom. No high school graduation. No first day of college. No college graduation. No wedding. No honeymoon. No first child. No proud dad moments. No weekly paychecks. No vacations. No growing old. No retirement party. No rocking chairs. No rocking chairs. No rocking chairs.
Trayvon Martin is dead. And George Zimmerman is on trial for murdering him. And that trial begins in thirteen days. Fact.
On a rainy Sunday evening in Sanford, Florida back in February of 2012, one bullet was shot from a 9mm semi-automatic handgun. a gun that belonged to George Zimmerman. a trigger that was pulled by George Zimmerman. With no DNA evidence found whatsoever of Trayvon’s on this gun, there is no dispute over who shot who. When the police arrived they found a can of ice tea and a bag of skittles next to the lifeless body of Trayvon. That is what he had on him when a bullet tore a hole through his hooded sweatshirt on one side and left another one on the other. A 9mm handgun vs. a can of ice tea and a bag of skittles. Armed vs. unarmed. Bullets in the hood.
