7 black school boys beat up a Hispanic boy in California and were arrested for the crime. This incident is being attributed to half Hispanic, half white, George Zimmerman, 28, murdering defensless17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in an incident of racial profiling.
Trayvon Martin and dad Tracy Martin
Violence is not the answer to the Martin case. It already claimed one innocent life. Starting a race war will solve nothing. Once again, George Zimmerman, represents George Zimmerman and no one else in his ethnic background. There are whites and Hispanics, who are not racist or violent. Do not let Zimmerman's crimes color your view of others.
The Retreat in Sanford, Florida, where Martin was murdered by Zimmerman
I will say this, the Sanford government's conduct in all this is disgraceful. Martin has been dead for over a month, in a case that has become a massive embarrassment not only in America, but abroad, as the story has been carried all over the world as an example of injustice and racism. Yet the government is dragging its feet on the case, trying to make a point that is lost on everyone. The government is trying to show the people it has the upper hand, even at the price of its name domestically and internationally. What the government is doing is very unwise and shall haunt and discredit it for a very long time to come.
