Trayvon Martin was just 17 years old when he was shot dead on
Despite his admission of the killing, Florida’s Sanford Police Department have not arrested or charged Zimmermann, who has found shelter in the state's stand your ground laws, which supposedly protect those who kill in 'self defence'. Now, more than four weeks on and despite a petition that has gathered over 2 million signatures, several marches and protests across America and a statement from amongst others, President Obama himself, Zimmerman still walks free.
democracy in the world, a man can gun down an innocent child and take refuge in a law that allows a ludicrous claim of self defence. I fully support the campaign to bring the killer of Trayvon in front of a judge and jury to stand trial for his wicked crime.”
Former footballer Brendan Batson, said “It is right that we all should seek justice for Trayvon Martin for the senseless taking of his life. We should all be horrified at the lack of action by the police authorities to properly investigate this killing and condemn their stance in hiding behind the ‘stand your ground laws’. Justice must prevail.”
We are ALL Trayvon Martin.
