Much has been made in the George Zimmerman Trial that Trayvon Martin was just a poor little kid that was on his way home with Skittles and an Ice Tea. Trayvon Martin was a 17 year-old who was over 6 foot tall, had a history of violence, and was suspended during the period of the confrontation for drugs. But the jury was not allowed to hear that information, and worse, nor of the gun that Trayvon Martin is seen with in photos taken from his cell phone only days before the incident.

At first I was cautious. Then, I evolved into skeptical. But now that the prosecution has rested their case in the George Zimmerman trial, I am flat-out disgusted at what clearly has been exposed as the worst racial prosecution since Jim Crow.

Watch Live Stream Video of the George Zimmerman trial. The State holds that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin and is guilty of second degree murder, but Zimmerman claims self-defense, based on Florida “stand your ground” laws.
