Hakim was shot dead too. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2013 v7n2 p0715

How often do mothers grieve their sons?

I found another one today, and another, and then I remembered Hakim.

Middle son, always reading. Shot dead over a parking space in North Philadelphia.

I don't see anywhere in the Constitution that a citizen has the right to shoot dead a young man parking a car, or a boy buying skittles.

Leaders, now is the time to lead with a mission to get the guns off the streets, overhaul the jury system that mandates that the most stupid are picked for high-profile cases and get rid of laws that violate human rights.

Young boy shot through the heart: Trayvon Martin

Statement by the President. The White House Office of the Press Secretary. MJoTA 2013 v7n2 p0714

The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy.  Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America.  I know this case has elicited strong passions.  And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher.  But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken.  I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son.  And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities.  We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis.  We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this.  As citizens, that’s a job for all of us.  That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.

Trayvon Benjamin Martin (Feb 5, 1995 – Feb 26, 2012) was the son of Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. He lived with his mother and older brother in Miami, Florida. Trayvon's English teacher, Michelle Kypriss described him as an A and B student who majored in cheerfulness. On the day Trayvon was murdered, he and his father were visiting his father's fiancée and her son at her townhome in The Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, Florida, a multi-ethnic gated community.

A jury in Sanford, Florida has found George Zimmerman not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin.

I know I am not alone in my outrage, anger, and heartbreak over this decision. When a teenager's life is taken in cold blood, and there is no accountability for the man who killed him, nothing seems right in the world, but we cannot let these emotions alone rule.

In these most challenging of times, we are called to act. There is work left to be done to achieve justice for Trayvon. The Department of Justice can still address the violation of Trayvon's most fundamental civil right — the right to life, and we are urging them to do so.

We continue to grieve the loss of Trayvon with his parents, his family, and all who loved him. Do not forget what brought us to this day.

George Zimmerman was arrested and charged because we would not back down when he was initially released. The Sanford Police Chief was removed from his post because we voiced our disbelief that he would overrule his detectives and block George Zimmerman's arrest.

And, perhaps most importantly, not a single state has passed a "stand your ground" law in 2013 — the first time in eight years — because we refuse to let the memory of Trayvon fade from the hearts and minds of America.

So, now we have a choice: We can be felled by our sorrows over the jury's decision, or we can turn our frustration into action. We can demand the Department of Justice address the travesties of this tragedy. We can take a step forward in our efforts to finally end racial profiling in America once and for all. What will you do, NAACP supporters?

For Trayvon Martin, for his family, and for all parents who suffer the horror of burying a child, sign our petition to the Department of Justice:
Thank you,

NYC Council Member  Williams' statement on  the verdict in the trial of Trayvon Martin's murder

NEW YORK, NY, July 14, 2013: Council Members Jumaane D. Williams (D-Brooklyn), co-vice chair of the Council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus, released the following statement regarding the verdict of not guilty reached by the jury in the trial of the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The man who fatally shot him, George Zimmerman, was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter. An unarmed Martin was killed by Zimmerman on February 26th, 2012 in Sanford, Florida; the shooting spawned a nationwide movement of protests.  

"First and foremost, my continued prayers for peace and comfort go to Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, as well as the parents of every child our nation has lost to gun violence. The murder of Trayvon Martin is but the most recent example of profiling in America, a practice that is discriminatory at its best and deadly at its worst. Our society must be re-examined at every level, from law enforcement to criminal justice to the basic way we relate to each other. Laws like 'Stand Your Ground' are not only inhuman, they have exacerbated some of these basic problems. Furthermore, they are fueled by a gun culture that is literally killing our children one by one.

"We are sick and tired of being sick and tired. What we are now charged with is the responsibility to sustain our unity and have our emotions fuel a relentless pursuit of reform. In 2013, it should not be this difficult, by every statistical metric, to be a black man in America."
Stand up and rally to change the laws, change the jury system. They are broken. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2013 v7n2 p0715

Florida gave back George his gun. Two reasons; one, to shoot another kid; to shoot himself. I will put my money on the second happening soon. Is that what we want? I don't. I want redemption, a life of service.

And as the day goes on, it is now 40 hours after the verdict: we are hearing that more than 500,000 dollars was raised for George Zimmerman for his living expenses and defense.

And now I am understanding that the trial of George was a battleground against President Obama. Right after Trayvon was shot through his heart, President Obama said that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon.

Was any money raised for the prosecution? I am thinking not. The Florida criminal court was trying a run-of-the-mill trial of a white man accused of murdering a black kid. I will be interested to see what the prosecution cost, and what the defense cost.

Uneven playing field, the KKK didn't disappear, they changed shape. And the laws and judicial system in Florida are very happy to accomodate them.
