Who Really Killed Trayvon Martin?

Categories: CrimeOpinion

Those who know me know I have very few good things to say about the American judicial system.  We have the highest incarceration rate in the world, and the highest crime rate in the world.  How can this be?  Obviously, the system isn't working.

Today, July 13, 2013, the sabbath, it worked, no thanks to the government.

Congratulations first to George Zimmerman for his acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Secondly, congratulations to the Zimmerman defense team for their part in the win.

Finally, congratulations to the jury for 1) taking time out of their lives to serve, 2) taking on such a potentially life-changing and critically important challenge, and 3) taking time after the trial to deliberate, consider the arguments, discuss the evidence, and agree on the appropriate verdict.

Now, here's why I say "no thanks to the government".  Zimmerman should have never been charged to begin with.  There was not enough evidence to support a murder charge, nor a manslaughter charge.  The charge was politically and racially motivated, and was made by Special Prosecutor Angela B. Corey under pressure from certain segments of the public and from intense media coverage.  It's yet one more example of why the American justice system is a farce - why too many innocent people are in jail and too many guilty people are on the streets.

But the case isn't over...or I should say, it shouldn't be over.  There's one more question to be answered:

Who really killed Trayvon Martin?

Who taught Trayvon Martin that violence was ever the best solution?  Who would teach Martin that breaking Zimmerman's nose was the best thing to do?  Who would teach Martin that knocking Zimmerman to the ground was the best thing to do after he had already broken Zimmerman's nose?  Who would teach Martin that straddling Zimmerman was the best thing to do after he had already broken Zimmerman's nose and knocked him to the ground?  Who would teach Martin that repeatedly slamming Zimmerman's head into the concrete was the best thing to do after he had already broken Zimmerman's nose, knocked him to the ground, and was on top of him?

Was it his family?  If so, who in his family would teach him such things?  His mother?  His older brother?  His father?  His father's fiancée?  Her son?

Was it his friends?  If so, which friends?

Was it a minister who followed the hateful lead of someone like Jeremiah Wright?

Was it a teacher like the one I had who incorporated fighting into the physical education curriculum?

Who taught Trayvon Martin to be so violent?  That's who killed Trayvon Martin.  That's who should be identified, arrested, charged, prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced.

We knew all along it wasn't George Zimmerman.

My husband [who is a musician] said "with fingers that long, Trayvon should have been a piano player :)
   By the way, We agree with your analysis.
