The George Zimmerman Verdict

Although I’m not surprised over George Zimmermans acquittal, I am so thoroughly sickened to my stomach!  That man should have went to prison for either murder, manslaughter at the least! I mean come on!  He attacked an unarmed teenager!   Trayvon Martin was unarmed.  Okay?  No matter how much Trayvon may have acted he did not deserve to be shot in his chest.   Zimmerman should have walked away and go inside of his home after he called 911 if he was suspicious of whatever he might have thought young Trayvon might be up to.   But what does Zimmerman do instead?  According to Juror B37  Zimmerman once he does call 911 DELIBERATELY ignores instructions to NOT confront Trayvon and Zimmerman instead confronts the young boy which resulted in Trayvon losing his life.  And now Zimmerman is set free.  What kind of message does this send to African Americans across the nation?  That our lives especially young Black males are not worth anything.  That God forbid if a young African American male is just walking home from the store & not paying attention to where he is walking and that someone who has a very distorted view of African American males decides to act out of fear?  Then its okay to just go & and act like Rambo & kill him?   What a great country this is isn’t it?  😦 

The good ole U.S. of A .   A country where its alright to murder an African American because you fear that trouble is right around the corner.   Yes I do hate Zimmerman he is some piece of work.  Of course the jury did rule in his favor now didn’t they?   Let me ask you all if the roles had been reversed & Trayvon had shot Zimmerman do you think that the jury would acquit Trayvon?   Hell no!  Some United States we have huh?

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
