6 Q’s | what was your reaction to the Trayvon Martin Murder Case (acquittal)


July 15, 2013 by The Lupie Chick

1058944_10151739927863809_1684733022_nThe acquittal of George Zimmerman in the trail for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, 17, in Sanford, Florida has spurred a national response that is taking numerous forms, including rallies in multiple cities and active discussion on social media. 48 hours after the verdict I have 6 questions I would like you to answer (or think about)

1. What is your personal response?

2. What questions and issues does it raise for you?

3. Do you think the prosecutor was out “lawyered” by the defense attorney?

4. Were you surprised by the not guilty verdict?

5. How do you think history will remember the Trayvon Martin case? Will it be about civil rights, citizens’ rights to protect themselves, the judicial process–or something else?

6. In the aftermath of the verdict–how should we honor Trayvon Martin?

I ask all of you- NOW WHAT??? What are you going to do to make a difference?????

Take a listen to Judge Mathis perspective on the case:

  1. It makes me sad that he was found not guilty. I worry more about my son, he doesn’t dress like some young men do, is he going to be judged, and hurt because of it. I raised him to stand up for his civil rights and to be educated on those rights, will he would day be seen as offensive and pay for that with his life.

    • There was a young man 15 yrs old on the radio this morning crying.. He said he was scared for his life. I work at Moorehouse college and today i looked at those young men and tears fell from my eyes. They all are Trayvon Martin
