As previously reported by NewsOne, Trayvon Martin was 17-years-old when he was gunned down by George Zimmerman, 28, on February 26, 2012. Martin was profiled and stalked around the Twin Lakes gated community in Sanford, Florida, before an altercation between the teenager and Zimmerman led to him being shot at close-range through the heart.
Zimmerman wasn’t charged with anything until Martins’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, pushed and fought for justice for their son, rallying support around the country.
Zimmerman was charged with 2nd-degree murder and found not guilty on July 13.
Since his acquittal, both his estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman and one of the jurors have voiced doubts about his innocence.
“George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can’t get away from God,” said Juror B29, known simply as Maddy. “And at the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with.”
Apparently, justice for all is something that most Carrick High School parents only want mentioned during the Pledge of Allegiance.
