Will Justice be served soon for Trayvon Martin

The George Zimmerman murder/manslaughter trial is almost over. After a month of No Charges, a 6 month delay with indicting Zimmerman for the Trayvon Martin shooting (after a public media campaign spearheaded by Rev Al Sharpton et als), and a very public attention to the court trial, we will/may soon have a verdict.

The question begs: "Why do we even care about a young Black teen's shooting?" My answer: 'It didn't have to happen.

Why was it necessary for a human being to be shot with a firearm simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time?

What's the Big Deal?

I've reported and written commentary about the Martin/Zimmerman issue twice (this is my third blogpost). Although Black Youth are gunned down everyday within these United States, it shouldn't make any of us any less aware nor desensitized. A human being was killed..needlessly.

Trayvon Martin represents a dark mark on our North American culture. That is that race relations and equality has a LLLLOOOOOOONNNNNNG Way2Go! It will be a travesty of justice to send a message that another human being can be lawfully gunned down in the absence of a crime being committed. So Very Sad -- so very sad.
