George Zimmerman mumbled those 4 words just moments before he shot and killed 17 year-old Trayvon Martin, who was walking home after purchasing snacks from a local convenience store.
Oddly enough those exact some words (“They always get away…”) were uttered by millions of American’s over the weekend after a Florida jury returned with a verdict of ‘Not Guilty’ for Trayvon Martin’s killer.
Zimmerman, 29, was found “not guilty” on all charges for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Setting the OBVIOUS racial implications of the case aside for a moment, it’s truly unbelievable that a man has walked out of a courtroom after blatantly taking an UNARMED teenager’s life.
Zimmerman took the law into his own hands and took a life. No if’s and’s or buts about it, however the prosecution failed to convince a jury that he did anything wrong.
A day after the verdict was read, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin (Trayvon’s mother and father) responded via the social networking site, Twitter.
Tracy Martin (father) expressed gratitude for all of the public support, stating:
[Sidebar: OJ Simpson walked out of court after being acquitted of killing his wife, however he was NEVER fully “free” and now serves 15 years on an unrelated charge.]
Zimmerman may have been found “not guilty” in that Florida court but if you believe in Devine intervention, he WILL pay.
What are your thought’s on the Zimmerman verdict?
Do you believe justice was served?
