Let me just start this with a message to Trayvon Martin's mom and dad: I am truly sorry for your loss. No one should ever have to bury a child. As a mother, I cannot imagine your pain. I pray that God will bless you and give the strength to carry on the best you can.
This truly is a sad story all around. Two people have lost their lives and all for what? Nothing. I don't want to get into a racially divided story about this because I don't believe this was a racial crime now that the facts are starting to trickle out about what happened. See, this is the problem I have with the media: they blow everything out of proportion when they use their biased reporting. They are the ones responsible for turning this into a white/black thing when the accused murderer is a hispanic male. Way to do your homework, MEDIA! Just because the man doesn't have a hispanic last name and a black kid was shot to death, well, he must have been white! WONG! I don't think Trayvon himself is really responsible for what happened. I think he saw a guy following him that he didn't know. I think that when Zimmerman confronted him and was suspicious of him for no reason, it scared Trayvon and he may have been scared for his life. Wouldn't you have been scared if someone came from out of nowhere and got in your face while you walked home in the dark? I would have. I think Travon felt he had better defend himself from this stranger because he didn't know what the stranger planned to do. I think that Zimmerman got his ass kicked and it caught him off guard and instead of fighting hand to hand like a man, he pulled his gun on the unarmed kid. Zimmerman may have thought Trayvon was armed, too, but he was busy getting his head bashed into the street. Something Trayvon was well within his rights to do. What did Zimmerman expect would happen? This is just what I think. I don't think it's a racial issue, I think it was an idiot, vigilante issue. I also think that for the media to blow this thing up before all the facts were made available to the public and to make people think this was racially motivated is another ploy for them to divide this country even more. I think every media outlet that has tried and judged Zimmerman before the police and the courts could is despicable. Are we not innocent until proven guilty? All of the celebs like Kanye and Diddy and Spike Lee (DH of the world and racist himself) have all been guilty of assuming Zimmerman killed this kid because he was black. Nope. Here's a thought: let the police do their work and their fact finding and let's hear from the witnesses that were actually there and saw what happened instead of intimidating them and making them hide in fear for their lives. The truth shall set you free..... I'm not saying Zimmerman isn't guilty, he should have just let the kid go and let the cops take care of it instead of taking matters into his own hands. But if everyone truly wants justice then let the cops, the investigators and the courts figure it out - not the court of public opinion!
