JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — More than six weeks after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old with no criminal record, George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch coordinator at a small gated community in Sanford, Fla., was charged by a special prosecutor on Wednesday evening, April 11, with second-degree murder and taken into custody.
In the past several weeks, regarding the tragic loss of life of the young seventeen year old teen, Trayvon Martin, slain by George Zimmerman, an aggressive neighborhood crime watcher in his dad’s neighborhood where he was staying there has been much discussion about how this situation came about and culminated on his death. As much as we care about this event, there are no witnesses except two people, George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, and the victim, Trayvon is no longer with us. So, we cannot make judgement on what took place, even where there is much speculation. We have to wait and see, now that George Zimmerman has been arrested. To be sure this case has now had many turns and the outcome of the investigation that will take place will be VERY interesting.
