Trayvon Martin

People are shocked about the verdict from the George Zimmerman trial. The jury declared that Zimmerman was "not guilty" but did not declare him innocent.  As a mother and grandmother, I feel for the Trayvon Martin's family. They've lost their son, and the man that shot their son is free.

USA Today:

George Zimmerman's business with the criminal court in Florida may be done, but a federal civil rights investigation remains open, and legal experts say he could face a civil suit.
A federal investigation into the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is underway, and prosecutors from the Justice Department's civil rights division will review evidence from the FBI and the Florida criminal trial, the Justice Department said Sunday in a written statement....

 On top of all this, Zimmerman can now get his gun back. This is indeed a sad day.
