George Zimmerman ignored the dispatcher's instruction to leave Trayvon alone. He then tracked down the 17 year-old kid because he was black. Trayvon was unarmed and just walking home. George accosted the young man and after a scuffle pulled a gun on him. Instead of ending the fight, he decided to shoot the young man, because he knew he could get away with it.

George was not found not guilty of any crime, but a 17 year old kid is dead. He was guilty of walking while black. We are all Trayvon and cannot let this injustice stand. No Justice, No Peace. Time to stand up, March, Speak Out, and Demand Justice.
