Justice for the Murder of Trayvon Martin

      San Francisco, CA

On February 26, my son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked to a family member's home from a convience store where he had just bought some candy. He was only 17 years old. 

Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman, admitted to police that he shot Trayvon in the chest. Zimmerman, the community's self appointed "neighborhood watch leader," called the police to report a suspicious person when he saw Travyon, a young black man, walking from the store. But Zimmerman, who is white, still hasn't been charged for murdering my son. 

Trayvon was my hero. At the age 9, Trayvon pulled me from a burning kitchen, saving my life. He loved sports and horseback riding. At only 17 he had a bright future ahead of him with dreams of attending college and becoming an aviation mechanic. Now that’s all gone.

When Zimmerman reported Trayvon to the police, they told him not to confront him. But he did anyway. All I know about what happened next is that my 17 year-old son, who was completely unarmed, was shot and killed.

It's been nearly two weeks and the Sanford Police have refused to arrest George Zimmerman. In their public statements, they even go so far as to stand up for the killer - saying he's "a college grad" who took a class in criminal justice.

I don't know if my family will ever receive justice for this terrible tragedy. That's because the police aren't handing the case over to prosecutors, putting a dangerous delay in the work to find out just what happened to Trayvon.

Please join me in calling on the the Sanford Police Department and the Seminole County Attorney's office to investigate my son's murder and prosecute George Zimmerman for the shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin.

      Really, justifiable homicide is a reality armed or not!

      The pain of having a son not smart enough to handle the situation is sad.

      Trayvon should have been on the phone with the police!

      This is why I think he is guilty!

      In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
