Zimmerman Justice

George Zimmerman hunted down and confronted an unarmed high school boy, and shot the kid dead. It was just 7PM when Trayvon Martin was killed.

Zimmerman was acquitted of both second-degree murder and of manslaughter. He now walks free, but Trayvon Martin's ghost will forever haunt his killer.

Zimmerman claimed he feared for his life. He may indeed have been afraid before, during and after the killing - but Zimmerman initiated the confrontation, and he finished it by shooting the teenager dead.

NFL quarterback Michael Vick was sentenced to federal prison for 23 months for dogfighting & killing a pit bull. Why is a dog more valued than a child who'd just gone shopping for ice tea & skittles candy? Zimmerman, the child-killer who refused to testify in his own defense, sniggered free: his supporters are well-pleased, and he himself seems unrepentant. The remains of Trayvon Martin lie violated, an ambushed child of racist & genocidal America.
