A unarmed young black man was shot in a gated community in Florida; his only crime? Carrying skittles and tea from the store for his brother and his self. To George Zimmeraman he was "suspicious" so he called 911 and engaged the teen, causing an altercation and then shooting the teen dead. Trayvon "trey" Martin was 17, visitng his father. He had dreams of being a pilot and went home in a body bag. Why? Because Mr. Zimmerman thought he looked "suspicious" and yet this man remains free. Oh, Mr. Zimmerman age 26, majors in criminal justice and had a license to carry a concealed weapon and was head of the neighborhood watch. He was watching a black kid walk home from the store and saw fit to engage this person he called "suspicious." Just remember Zimmerman is free and admits to shooting Trayvon, but Trayvon died all due to a walk to the store. Where is the outcry for this injustice?

      I'm signing this petition to lend my support to the cause for justice. It is an outrage that an unarmed child was murdered and Zimmerman is a menace to society and needs to be put away. All my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Trayvon Martin.

      By not arresting him we are stepping back in time by 50+ years. Zimmerman was self elected neighborhood watch captain, sitting the stage for other gun in hand captains "taking care of their neighborhoods" !!!!

      Having lost my 14 Year Old Daughter LORI

      who was hit by a car, this story went to my soul. My heart filled with pain for Trayvon's family. They remain in my prayers.

      Love, Light and one day with hope you will Laugh again

      Please continue to celebrate his life on his birthday.

      We have a party that includes a visit to her resting place (with grandchildren who never had the love of Lori's hand holding their hand) we bring flowers, dried flowers gathered all year, confetti, bubbles and balloons. We all say something to or about Lori - we laugh and we cry - we end by making circle and say prayers (Trayvon will be in our prayers). We follow that with a Birthday meal, cake and ice cream.

      We know we are keeping Lori in our hearts and souls - Last year our 6 year old grandson called ( without his parents knowing ) wanting to know when we were going out to see LORI and wanted us to know we could use his bubble maker to make LORI HAPPY - we knew she was in his heart and soul.

      I share this because for us it keeps LORI

      alive in our hearts and lets other know she was real and loved - with this we can share her love light and laughter
