How do we sleep at night knowing a young mans innocent life was taken away? How do we continue to go through our day with crimes like this happening in our own backyard?  Trayvon Martin was murdered all because he looked suspicious by George Zimmerman who has yes to be arrested. George Zimmerman has yet to be arrested due to Florida “Stand your Ground” law which states that a person is justified in using deadly force and does not have to retreat if they believe such force will prevent death. In this case George Zimmerman would be the aggressor as he was following Trayvon and stated that Trayvon LOOKED suspicious. George Zimmerman was also told by police dispatch that they will handle it from there and George still went above his power to handle a situation that could have easily been solved by the cops and America would still have their son. George Zimmerman is still free all because of this law. George Zimmerman may even REMAIN free. But it is evident that Trayvon was afraid of George. Some random man who a kid does not know following them at night, he had every right to be scared. All of this is portrayed in his last phone call. George Zimmerman brought a gun to a fist fight. George Zimmerman was not trying to protect himself when he was the aggressor in this situation. Trayvon had no weapon(s) on him, how was he a threat? Trayvon was a 100+ pound boy compared to George Zimmerman over 200+ pounds, Zimmerman was well equipped to protect himself WITHOUT using a gun. Amazingly the FBI has decided to step in on this case since the Sanford Police Department seems to be moving slow with this case. George Zimmerman may only face a manslaughter charge which is only up to 15 years. Not nearly enough for this crime. Lets continue to fight injustice in America, once we give up, crimes of this nature will continue to happen.
