Zimmerman: NOT GUILTY

The case of Trayvon Martin had the whole world talking about it. Over the past couple of months celebrities, the media and the world was in support of “Justice for Trayvon” by wearing hoodies, making their profile pictures on social media a black screen for the teen.

Trayvon Martin was a 17 year old African American high school student who was gunned down by George Zimmerman, a volunteer for the neighborhood watch on February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. Martin and Zimmerman were on their way home when Zimmerman called the police in suspision stating

“this guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about and looking at all the houses”


Zimmerman exited his vehicle and had a violent encounter with Martin, causing Zimmerman to shoot Martin in the heart at close range.

Zimmerman turned himself in and after 16 hours of deliberations, the six women of the jury delivered their verdict: NOT GUILTY of second degree murder.
