Oh how my heart ache for Trayvon’s family. Their loss can not be compared to anything else. Their child was taken away from them because of racism,in such violent way! This did not have to happen, and it shouldn’t have. His mom looks numb…..and I understand why she would be. She didn’t have a chance to protect her son. But then again how would she? you can’t prepare for this type of mess!
SANFORD, Florida (CBSMiami) – Emergency calls made to police in Sanford, Florida showed that a black teenager was terrified as he fled from a white neighborhood watch volunteer who eventually shot him and that the volunteer was not acting in self-defense, according to the family of Trayvon Martin, 17.
Sanford Police released eight 911 calls made during and after the shooting of Martin. George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer told police on the first call that he was following Martin and said Martin was running.
A dispatcher told Zimmerman not to follow Martin.
“This guy looks like he is up to no good. He is on drugs or something,” Zimmerman told the dispatcher. He also said the teen had his hand in his waistband and was looking at homes as he walked.
“These a******s. They always get away,” Zimmerman told the 911 dispatcher.
Who is TayVon Martin Listen to what his little pal said.(The video is on this page somewhere!)
JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE
My take on this:
He had no reason what so ever do do what he did and there is no law in this world that can back up his wrongful doing. I could see if he fought this young man in the middle of doing a crime, but he did not. He could have followed the young man and not even get out of his truck to see if he was up to no good or he was just walking home, but no he took it in his own hands to do a job he was not suppose to do, and sad that he still free and this young man that had so much life to look forward to is no longer here. Shame on you Zimmerman.
To my people in the fight: via Steve-I never want to know the pain that these two parents are feeling. To have your son taken away from you as he walked home from the store. Hearing the phone call of their child screaming, “help” at the top of his lungs after being followed by someone who is known by the local police department as a habitual 911 caller. Then hearing the gunshot that took their son’s life.
Every last American needs to stand up for Trayvon. Every last one of us needs t take a stand and see to it that George Zimmerman needs to be brought to justice for the injustice that he served upon an innocent child.
We ALL need justice for Trayvon just as we would want for our own children. His parents do not need to feel alone in America.. Remember Trayvon, stand HIS ground from this over-zealous, trigger-happy wannabe. He gives gun owners and neighborhood watchmen & every other upright citizen a very bad name. But, until this law is changed altogether, educate your kids to back away or stay strapped ’cause y’all have been thrown back to the wild west out there. Stay in groups and record any altercations as evidence. This jack-hole deserves prison time and everything that goes with that.
To the family of Trayvon: Don’t wish death on Zimmerman. Death would be taking the easy way out and he certainly doesn’t deserve that. He needs to be locked up with the biggest, meanest MuthaFooger in that joint.
From Carla to Trayvon-
A Cry From the Grave
I once was blind
Now I see
Look what this fool
Has done to me
Now I lay
Empty of life
And now I pray
With all my might
You will fight for my last rights
Cause you know this ain’t right
A cry from the grave
I want you to be brave
Dear Son, (Keithric, Eaim, Amen, & TeHun)
I want to start by apologizing to you. This is not the world I wanted you to be born into by any means. Your life won’t be easy and no amount of my love can change the way people will see you. And for that I apologize. I never wanted this for you.
Do you know that you are handsome, brilliant and powerful beyond measure? My dream for you is that you will grow to possess incontrovertible knowledge of your beauty, intelligence and infinite potential. I pray that you will come to see your dark skin and your coily crown as the physical manifestations of your ties to the proud and resilient African Diaspora. I hope that you will love yourself and in loving yourself you will love and be good to all others. Always hold your head high and be proud of the person that you are. I don’t mean to frighten you or harden you to the world that awaits you. But I, more than anyone, want you to keep your spark, your penchant for laughing and your thirst for life. I want you to keep your drive and desire to do well. And if you’ve lost it, don’t worry. We will work together to piece it together.
The worst thing that can happen is that you start to take the portrait that society paints of you as reality. At some point in your life, someone will think that you are something that you are not (a criminal, a rapper, an athlete, suspicious) because of your race. I will always love you, respect you, protect you, fight for you and be the biggest fan of your existence. In my eyes, you are and will always be a magical miracle from the Almighty. I pray that in truly knowing that you are a miracle you will not feel in any shape or form tempted to prove your self-worth or manhood by harming others.
