I am going to write about the Trayvon Martin vs. George Zimmerman case. I’ll be trying to prove how George Zimmerman got always with murder and how the jury let it happen. Trayvon Martin was a 17 year old black male who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman because Zimmerman claims he was defending himself. A 29 year old, 5’8, 170 pound white male was being beat up and threaten by a 5’11, 158 pounds, 17 year old boy is just extremely hard to believe. George Zimmerman had no right to shot Trayvon and the fact that Trayvon Martin at no weapon of any kind makes things worse. All he had was a bag of skittles; an Arizona iced tea, and had on a black hoody. The points I want to make are how Zimmerman is guilty, how the criminal justice department didn’t do their job with trying to get justice for Trayvon and his family, how the jury didn’t do everything they could to make sure George Zimmerman didn’t get away with this terrible crime and how Zimmerman could have been convict for a hate crime instead of manslaughter or 2nd degree murder. Thousands of black teenage males die in gun crimes every year. Many of the teenagers that are killed aren’t even 18 years old. The children and teen killed in 2008 and 2009 could fill more than 229 classrooms. Gun homicide is the number one cause of death for African American male. Trayvon Martin is a perfect example of gun homicide killing our black males. Trayvon Martin was a 17 year old, who was walking home from the 711 on a rainy night. When he was walking, he saw George Zimmerman who was following him and asking him where he was going. When Trayvon began to run, Zimmerman chased him and shot Trayvon Martin because he assumed Trayvon was doing something he wasn’t supposed to be doing. “George Zimm... ... middle of paper ... ...ge Zimmerman didn’t get away with this terrible crime and how Zimmerman could have been convict for a hate crime instead of manslaughter or 2nd degree murder. It is extremely critical that everyone understands that crimes like this will not stop unless they are properly taking care of. Zimmerman shouldn’t have followed Trayvon after the police officer ordered him not to; he disobeyed an officer and should have been gotten some type of consequence for his disobedience. There was no legit reason for Zimmerman to pursue Trayvon because he had no weapon and he was minding his own business. If Zimmerman would have stand in his lane and followed the police officers’ orders, then all of this could have been avoided. George Zimmerman is a guilty and should be punished for what he did, and the fact that I found all the evidence to prove that he is also proves all my points.
