143. That is

 

the crux if the matter. Trayvon Martin's rights were ignored in that entire Trial, by the judge,prosecutors,police,expert witnesses, and jury. That is exactly what the defense wanted. It was all validated by a club mentality of lawyers on media networks, concerning the interpretation of the law.

The organization that spoke out against it was the NAACP,National Black Lawyers Association, and many in the African American community. They do not have to accept that interpretation of the law because they have been accepting it long enough.

This country is changing demographically and the laws of this country need to serve every demographic fairly and not just be the rule of law for one. The decision was made by the groups in the first paragraph that I listed. Most of them. if not all were white and Trayvon Martin was viewed through their lenses. He was this Black kid. A threat to their society who didn't submit to do gooder George Zimmerman's authority. The gun was his authority and they empowered him to protect their society. That is probably exactly what his momma taught him according to his cousin. O'Mara going to FOX made sure of the audience he wanted to reach. Those are all George Zimmerman's supporters. They gave their interpretation of the law and people are suppose to agree. Just listen carefully to the condescending tone of those supporting that interpretation of the law. The law was clear, but the judge edited it according to these so called expert lawyers. They violated the rights of Trayvon Martin to make the law favor George Zimmerman.

The prosecutor never made the argument Trayvon Martin was in fear of this white male following him at night with a loaded gun, with intent to commit harm to Trayvon. The whole trial was about George Zimmerman being this do gooder. The Defense poisoned the well by lying about who Trayvon was. They painted him as this violent thug who did drugs. The exact description given by George Zimmerman that night Trayvon was profiled. The jury and public was exactly what they wanted to reach, and they saw Trayvon as UP TO NO GOOD, which was further from the truth. O'Mara lied. I suggest people read who the real Trayvon was from his coaches,friends, teachers and the kids he helped on social events. They didn't want you to see that portrayal which was kept out of the Trial. If you saw that portrayal, there is no way you can see Trayvon Martin turning back to attack George Zimmerman.
