The murderer of Trayvon Martin was just set free.
Already, a heartless, despicable human being who helped set free the murderer has a book deal.
I’m just heartsick, angry and disgusted by all this. Between seeing even the beginning of justice denied Trayvon and his family and seeing hateful monsters on the right celebrating that, I want to see those hateful, murderous people hurt, mentally and if possible physically.
I feel like we’re in the 60s again, where a bunch of whites can murder a young black man and actually be defended and then celebrated when they get away with it.
I don’t know if anything good will come from challenging this obviously immoral juror, but those with the skills should at least try it. I hold out slightly more hope for a Justice Department prosecution, but whether the Obama administration will go there remains to be seen.
I think we need to rip the bandages and scabs off the supposedly healing racial wounds of the past, and apply some of the strongest medicine we have, because it’s abundantly clear that those wounds were just festering and the bandages just let us pretend this problem was “fixed”.
It’s not fixed! Not for Trayvon’s parents, not for the families of so many other murdered black men, not for the families of black men and women rotting in prison for crimes that warrant a hand slap if you’re white … When will we say enough and start treating everyone as human beings, and punish or cast out those who refuse to do so?
