A murderer still walks free?

Perhaps you've heard about this already.

On February 26th, 2012, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked home from a convenience store.

Trayvon was no thug. He was no criminal. He was a child who had gone to buy some candy.

His killer is claiming he acted in self-defense. His killer had a gun and claimed his victim "looked suspicious". Trayvon, a person of color, had a pack of Skittles and was walking through the gated community where his father lived.

The police are declining to press charges.

This all makes me so sick. That poor child and his family...this isn't right.

  1. I've been ranting about this to my husband all week. It just makes me sick the more we learn about exactly what happened. I hope the grand jury comes back with an indictment soon. Did you see the latest development, that he was on the phone with a girl five minutes before the police arrived to find him dead? She was later hospitalized because she was so upset according to the today show this morning, but said that he had said someone was following him and that he was walking fast to get away. It's just tragic. And infuriating.
