DOJ to Investigate Trayvon Martin’s Murder

I’m so glad to hear this. Racism is rampant in the Sanford Police Department–and I’d no more trust them to lead an investigation–should they deign to do so–than I could lift my Honda over my head.

My heart breaks for Trayvon’s family, and especially for Trayvon.

From the Miami Herald:

“Zimmerman said he had stepped out of his truck to check the name of the street he was on when Trayvon attacked him from behind as he walked back to his truck, police said. He said he feared for his life and fired the semiautomatic handgun he was licensed to carry because he feared for his life.”

Right. Mr. Vigilante-Wannabe had no idea where he was. Ironic, considering the previous paragraph:

“George Zimmerman, 28, a neighborhood watch volunteer with a long history of calling in everything from open garage doors to “suspicious characters,” called police to say he had spotted someone who looked drugged, was walking too slowly in the rain, and appeared to be looking at people’s houses. Zimmerman sounded alarmed because the stranger had his hand in his waistband and held something in his other hand.”

How utterly disgusting.

    I feel like it needs to be some justice. The police already have enough evidence against Zimmerman. Some people take their jobs way to serious. This teenage young man didn’t deserve to die. Wen Zimmerman made a call to the police if u listen carefully he sounded like he was up to no gud. He might have been under some type drugs or alcohol. The phone calls with Trayvon and his girlfriend tells the truth.
