Stop the Celebrity Fight between George Zimmerman And DMX

Trayvon Martin was murdered on February 26, 2012 by George Zimmerman. In the summer of 2013, George Zimmerman was found not guilty of his murder; leaving Martin's parents and many in the country, to mourn, as well as being dazed and confused. On February 5th, 2014, Zimmerman made headlines once again, not for murder, but as a participant in a celebrity boxing match, against (of all people) hip hop bad boy, DMX, who also has made headlines with his numerous run-ins with the law. Many may figure that this will be a great attempt to get back at Zimmerman, however, they are capitalizing from Trayvon's murder...the murder that was brought on by George Zimmerman, who also has exhibited lack of self-control, in recent headlines for attacking his pregnant girlfriend. We cannot let this happen! Please sign this petiton to stop this fight from happening. This is a slap in the face of Sybrina and Tracey Fulton who have loss their son and can't ever get him back. Zimmerman is being considered a celebrity for murdering an young man in cold blood! We as Americans should not commend this type of behavior. This is a money making venture for Zimmerman, who also received funding at the time of his trial. He doesn't plan on giving any of the proceeds to the victim's family and if he did what would it matter. Do not let this fight take place. Please sign

Prosecute the killer of our son, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin

On February 26, our son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked to a family member's home from a convenience 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 still hasn't been charged for murdering our son.  Trayvon was our hero. At the age 9, Trayvon pulled his father from a burning kitchen, saving his 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 we know about what happened next is that our 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. Please join us in calling on Angela Corey, Florida's 4th District State's Attorney, to investigate my son's murder and prosecute George Zimmerman for the shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin.
