Just days after hearing the devastating verdict of George Zimmerman being deemed not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin, my reaction remains stoic. Although I am annoyed and have forever lost faith in our country, I am left numb.

Perhaps that’s better so that when stories like this one come along, I won’t be hurt. George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert took to Piers Morgan on CNN to share his limited and skewed views of his brother’s life going forward. Oh and if that’s not bad enough, Robert shared his opinion on the type of person he though Trayvon was.
I want to know what makes people angry enough to attack someone the way that Trayvon Martin did. I want to know if it is true, and I don’t know if it’s true, that Trayvon Martin was looking to procure firearms, was growing marijuana plants… I want to know that every minor, high-schooler, that would be reaching out in some way for help, and they may feel it’s by procuring firearms or whatever they may be doing, that they have some kind of help. I think that’s what George was trying to do when he mentored two black children.
Oh poor George! We’re supposed to feel sorry for this killer because he’s now going to have to keep looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life?
Robert claims, “He has some decompression to do. He has to align himself with himself again as the free George.” Well, poor him. At least George has a life to decompress. What does Trayvon and his family have? An empty hole in their chests that don’t even get the courtesy to be temporarily filled with justice.
“It’s going to take us some time to heal,” Robert laments. I’m not looking forward to seeing this man hit the news circuit this week. Shameful.
