That pretty much sums it up. On this day a man that should have gone to jail for murdering 17-year-old Treyvon Martin was found not guilty for his crime. The fact that a jury of 6 women, four of them mothers, allowed an obvious vigilante to go free is an American travesty. So many dreams shattered because a citizen, who was instructed by police to stop pursuing what he professed to be a “suspicious character”, is dead.
A delusional man, who desired to be a cop and will now never be, blatantly profiled numerous others before deciding Trayvon was the one he’d pursue and kill. A woman has lost her son, a father has lost his son — he was carrying skittles and a soda. I barely have the words right now, so I’ll stop here – thanks Corinna for the title.
Out of respect for Mr. and Mrs. Martin and for Penny
