George Zimmerman Found Not Guilty
Honestly, I didn’t think the jury would have decided so soon or gone with a not guilty verdict. However, we are a nation of laws and that is to be respected.
Now is the time to step up and reject the hate that has been allowed to build with the help of news outlets such as CNN and MSNBC over the past 17 months. Using anger to publicly advocate murder, Associated Press Reporter Christina Silva tweeted at 10:09pm: @cristymsilva: “So we can all kill teenagers now? Just checking.”
Not cool, Christina. See what you helped create:
I don’t wanna just kill Zimmerman.. I wanna kill the judge, the jury, Zimmerman’s lawyer, the doctor who didn’t revive Trayvon, — SheGot’TheCLAP’ (@2wo_Up) July 14, 2013
Alright, how about a rather different approach – forsake mass murder and direct this energy into creating something positive in your community. Do something good in the next few days – check up on an elderly neighbor, volunteer at a food bank, buy a random person a cup of coffee. Whatever. Remember the life of Trayvon Martin with an act of kindness, not an act of violence.
