Organizer/AuthorMckenna Toston
On Saturday, July 13, George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in a second-degree murder trial. Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, a young Black man, in cold blood on the streets of Sanford, Florida, on February 26, 2012. After killing Martin, Zimmerman roamed free for 44 days before the angry response of millions of people forced the state to take action.

The sequestered jury of six women, all white except for one, came back with a not guilty verdict after only two days of deliberations. The verdict is a travesty, a continuation of the complicity of the racist, so-called criminal justice system that refused to treat the murder as a crime and has now left a vigilante free to roam the streets. The system of racist brutality carried out against poor people and people of color in communities from Florida to New York to California to Texas and elsewhere is on the offensive.

The acquittal of George Zimmerman means there will be more George Zimmermans. They have encouraged the growth of racist vigilante attacks on Black people. This is a pattern of racist violence that allows the cops to get away with murders like those of Oscar Grant, Alan Blueford and Manuel Diaz and countless others.

show up if you will. there are people who have a white parent and are outraged by this blatant racial seperation move made by ''justice'' dept. incensed is too mild. we are gonna start talking about things heretofore unexpressed. this perverted zimmerman must be rearrested. info is going to be told to people until this racist is re arrested by anyone who can ''arrest'' him. dont like to use their terminology. just get this guy off the streets. people are upset at whites or any other races including asians. people who have never felt this rejected in their life of constant race struggles. this must be adresed before it gets way out. and it will.
