I AM Trayvon Martin

(321) 617-7548 is the number to the State Attorney's Office handling the Trayvon Martin case. After you listen to a 3 minute rhetorical speech on how they are launching "a review" and "an investigation" because we are "a country of law"; remind them that that law says 10-20-Life; that self-defense doesn't mean following a walking person in a car then confronting that unarmed person with a gun; that there should have been, at least, an interrogation and an arrest. Sorry ass Sanford police.

Ooh wee! That message made me heated. A review? An investigation? How about an arrest then the rest of that stuff? At least, taken him to the station for questioning, any station but Sanford's. There was no self-defense on the part of Zimmerman. He was the perpetrator. There is no allegedly in this case. And, so far, there is no justice. Oh yes, I definitely left a message. Hope y'all rocked hoodies all over the nation.

So I read this today:

"A letter was issued and signed by city manager Norton Bonaparte, reiterates the previous reasoning by Sanford police chief Bill Lee which said he could not carry out an arrest because self-appointed neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense.

The letter states:

Mr. Zimmerman provided a statement claiming he acted in self defense which at the time was supported by physical evidence and testimony. By Florida Statute, law enforcement was PROHIBITED from making an arrest based on the facts and circumstances they had at the time." 

How is this even possible? Doesn't the fact that he did the following and the other boy was unarmed more than suggest that the one acting in self-defense may have been Trayvon?

This case just leaves me with more questions than answers and a not-so-healthy dose of anger.


This song for Trayvon gave me goosebumps and explained the story well.
