    What do you guys think about the Trayvon Martin murder?

    Trayvon Martin was an unarmed 17 yr old black boy that was shot and killed on Feb 26, 2012 while walking home from the store by George Zimmerman, a 28 yr old neighborhood watch captain, who felt the young boy looked suspicious walking in his neighborhood.

    You can google the case for more info and if you youtube it, you can even find some videos of audio from various 911 calls from the incident with the chilling sound of Trayvon's screams for help that ceased immediate after the sound of a gun shot.

    RIP Trayvon Martin

From what i've heard, all Trayvon was doing was walking! The police told the guy who killed him to leave it alone and let them take care of it. If the boy was minding his own business, leave him alone. This young man's life was taken way too soon. R.I.P <3

It just bothers me that so many young black men are losing their lives at the hands of hateful people.

It definitely was not self defense. There is a video of a little boy that was walking his dog at the time who eye witnessed Trayvon on the ground and heard him yelling for help before he turned to chase his dog who had got loose and then heard the gun shot. Now I want anybody to tell me how shooting an unarmed person yelling for help on his back on the ground is considered self defense. Where is the threat in that? I ain't gon lie I definitely do want that Zimmerman guy to get his in the worst way possible, whatever that may be. I ain't gon say I want someone to hurt him but if they did I wouldn't feel an ounce of sorrow for him.

This case is very sad. I've been following it and too have heard the 911 calls. I signed the petition to have Zimmerman arrested. He was specifically told not to confront the Trayvon but he did it anyway. It's a shame that he has not been arrested. I'm glad the FBI are now involved and I hope they bring justice to this family and all of America who is sadden by this. We are going backwards. Any time someone can blatantly disobey the command to not interfere, end someone's life and not behind bars is frightening. What next...bring back slavery? Zimmerman should want to be behind bars because he is taking a risk every time he leaves out his front door. He better hope no one gets a hold of him because they won't stop until he's 6 feet under to. And I don't condone violence or anyone hurting him, but he needs to pay for the damage he has caused. All we can go by is what he tells us...bullshit. It wasn't so self-defense.

I am so saddened by this case. The innocence of the young boy holding a pack of skittles and an ice tea when he was killed really takes me over the edge. This reminds me of a book a read about 7 years ago about the racism and hatred that was prevalent here in the U.S. The book showed pictures of lynchings of black children with big crowds of white adults and children just gawking at the lifeless bodies hanging there with satisfaction in their eyes. I'm not gonna lie, me being only 19 at the time and having dealt with instances of racism myself, that book made feel hate towards most white people back then. But what makes this case remind me of that book is the fact that the Sanford Police Dept are saying that Zimmerman was justified in the murder of Martin like it is ok cause the boy was a teenage black male. Which was the same attitude of law enforcement back in the early and mid 1900's depicted in that book. It really scares me that we are going backwards in history and us having a black president is somewhat of a diversion to what is really happening. This young man had dreams and goals unlike a lot of other young men and now he's gone before he even began to try and accomplish them.
