A Black Nationalist Perspective on the Killing of Trayvon Martin

The Soul School Institute sends its condolences to the grieving family of Trayvon Martin. I am writing to give a different interpretation on the killing of this young man. First, we need to stop referring to George Zimmerman as a "neighborhood watchman or self-appointed." George Zimmerman is a racist vigilante. 

The proper statement that should have appeared in the media is: "George Zimmerman, a racist vigilante, stalked a Black  teenager returning home from the store. He chased him, confronted him, and then, point-blank, shot and killed him. Zimmerman, who had a criminal record, used a controversial  Florida law to claim self-defense. Trayvon Martin was not armed. The Sanford Police Department refused to arrest Zimmerman, and may have been involved in a cover-up when they initially refused to release the 911 tape. 

Even after the 911 tape was released, it clearly showed that Zimmerman shot Martin without any provocation, but  the police remained defiant in not arresting Zimmerman. The enraged family of the victim has called for the Justice Dept. to launch an investigation and are demanding that Zimmerman be held for murder. 

It is also imperative that the Stanford Police Department be investigated for possible racism within the ranks and the leadership of the department. The Police Chief, Billy Lee, should be removed from his position."

This is the type of statement is closer to the truth. Zimmerman has reportedly not been seen since the shooting and his whereabouts maybe unknown. A fugitive arrest warrant should be issued by the FBI, with "Wanted DEAD OR ALIVE!"
