This is a sad story but doesn’t suprise me racism is alive and well in our country still after all we have been through people still have so much hate in them. By the looks of this situation this town doesn’t have many minorities I hope someone is charged with this crime and pray for his wife & kids.
I remember when this story first broke this is ridiculous these laws need to be reviewed people are taking the law into there own hands & using loopholes to benefit them. I hope in this case the family gets justice.
Yesterday we had the chance of hearing from Juror B37 who explained how the jury went through this process. We also found out she had a book deal and was going to profit off this tragedy which made people even more angry after the fact. After watching her interview on Anderson Cooper #AC360 you could easily tell why the trial went in favor of Zimmerman. She made numerous questionable statements such as her opinions on Rachel Jeantel & you could also see she couldn’t relate to the victim. If you didn’t have a chance to see it make sure you check it out. A twitter user by the name of @MoreAndAgain tweeted @SharleneMartin who gave the juror a book deal a message about her thoughts on the book. It was followed by numerous people doing the same thing also sending emails faxes etc. Late night into early Tuesday a statement was issued saying that Juror B37 has changed her mind & the book wont be released. This was good news to hear because no one should be profiting off this and it goes to show you the power of social networks.
The verdict is in and it doesn’t suprise me one bit. The justice system has failed us once again. it’s my opinion but we have seen many cases like this with the same results. To convict him off nothing and let him leave with the same gun is a dam shame. I have been racially profiled many times an know how it feels an its a horrible feeling especially if your not a bad person i pray for the Martin family an all other families in similar situations & future families that will have to go through this because it will happen again.
