Justice for Trayvon Martin

When I was writing for the Miami Herald Sunday magazine, it often shocked me seeing the stuff cops get away with in Florida. Then I moved away and a couple years later my brother turned up dead in police custody near Jacksonville. In my mind, he was murdered by the cops. Even though it was 12 years ago, it is still too upsetting for me to recount the whole thing again. 

Now, in an unsurprising move, the police in the Trayvon Martin killing let the shooter go in an obvious case of race bias -- on the part of the shooter and the police. The cops tested the dead 17 year old for drugs and alcohol (none found) but did not test the killer George Zimmerman? How does that work exactly?

Busy-body do-gooders with cell phones are bad enough. Now they've got guns and are allowed to shoot people down in cold blood?

We live in a police state where cops think they can decide justice on their own now. They let this out-of-control vigilante go because he talked their lingo. That's all it takes with most cops. The entire Sanford Police force should be fired. George Zimmerman should be indicted, tried, and incarcerated for life. And Amerika should get a grip and recognize the face of fascism staring down our rights as the jackbooted police carry on with their thuggery, and aid and abet that of others..
