One year since Trayvon Martin's death
Trayvon Martin Case: Wheels Of Justice Finally Turning
With the arrest of George Zimmerman today on 2nd degree murder charges, the Wheels of Justice have finally began to turn today on this controversial case.
Congratulations to all of the protesters of all backgrounds and races than marched across our great country for the last several weeks, it was this pressure that finally caused the authorities in Florida to appoint the special prosecutor who finally filed charges today.
Now Americans need to remember that in this country all suspects are innocent until proven guilty. If the case goes to trial - which is not a certainty due to the 'stand your ground' law, or the possibility of a plea bargain - America will have to live with decision of our justice system.
So, if he is found innocent, our hope is that our neighborhoods will not take to the streets to riot and cause harm to other innocent people. Respect the decision!
The most important thing to look at now is that now we have an arrest. Let the justice system finish its work and determine guilt or innocence.
God bless the Martin and Zimmerman families as they go thru the process of this controversial case.
