There has been a lot of talk since Travyon Martin was killed a month ago; yet despite the talk and the walks and the cries for his arrest, Zimmerman remains a free man.  This case is now filled with so much drama that it is not even easy to establish the truth of what really did in fact take place that night.  Let us therefore start with the facts that we do know; Travyon Martin was shot dead, George Zimmerman was the one who pulled the trigger to that gun when ended his life.  George Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense but shouldn’t this be a case for him to prove in court?  If he did act in self-defense he has nothing to worry about, he will walk out a free man or but then I forgot as far as the police are concerned Zimmerman does not have to answer to anyone, he said he acted in self-defense and his word is gospel.

A lot of the stories coming out of this incident seems to be fabricated and doesn’t really make any sense.  One of Zimmerman’s friend claimed he was badly hurt that night and went to the doctor the next day to be treated for a broken nose.  Strangely enough there are no photos or videos of Zimmerman looking as if he had been hurt at all.  I am sure if that did in fact happen Zimmerman and his broken nose would have been plastered all over the media.  There are no pictures, because it never happened.  There is no evidence to support his claim of self-defense.  So why are the police so reluctant to make an arrest even now after all the protests and outcries?  It as if they are saying it’s no big deal that’s just one less black youth that we have to deal with.   I don’t want to appear racist but I can’t help wondering, if Zimmerman was black Trayvon white, would the situation have been handled in the same manner?

What is also truly mind-boggling is how when a person commits a crime he suddenly becomes the victim.  Quoting from reports of what one of Zimmerman’s friend ”He hasn’t been to his apartment since that happened and he’s been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, for depression, for insomnia” end quote.   Well big deal, the fact is Zimmerman is alive and will continue to go on living his life.  Trayvon Martin is dead, his life was unnecessarily cut short, for him there is no tomorrow.   For those Zimmerman’s sympathizers I want you to ask yourselves this question, would if it was my son, or brother, or close relative, or friend that was killed would I still feel the same?   Be true to yourselves and answer the question truthfully.

In ending I just want to say a life is a life.  You shouldn’t have to put a color to it in order to get justice!
