As usual with things, people, and news that went viral, weeks later it will eventually be resilient.
But now, a noteworthy discussion came up, what if the whole scenario was reversed? The rest is left to your imaginations…, but let us know!
What if 28 year-old Hispanic male George Zimmerman killed 17 year old white Travon Martin?
George Zimmerman is a volunteer for a Neighbourhood Watch program. Now he is charged with a second-degree murder for the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager. Trayvon Martin’s death has caused awareness and frustration all over the internet.
George stated that his actions were purely based on self-defence. Yet he has been hiding ever since the incident and has received a variety of death threats.
Trayvon Martin was 17 at the time of his death(February 26,2012). He was returning from a convenience store, while George Zimmerman was on his way to the supermarket. When his eyes laid on Trayvon Martin. George, he called the police department and reported that he noticed “a young black male acting suspiciously, possibly on drugs”.
The police dispatcher told George not to follow Trayvon Martin. However, Zimmerman did the complete opposite and got out of his car, carrying a 9millimeter weapon.
According to George Zimmerman, he only shot Trayvon Martin in self-defence after Trayvon struck him in the face. Apparently Zimmerman believes pounding a boy’s head on the ground repeatedly was an act of self defence.
George Zimmerman is now arrested. We will not know how the court hearings will go until there are more information available.
Would Zimmerman call a cop if he saw a white guy or just non-black guy running? If not, why would someone call the cop on a black guy just because he was running?
