In Florida today, special prosecutor Angela Corey announced plans to charge George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. For now, it was not immediately clear what charge(s) George will face until it’s announced at the press conference later this afternoon. But…..George is still MIA so this should be interesting.
And many people around the country have been weighing in on the situation. Recently Bill Cosby said,
“Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself. The power-of-the-gun mentality had him unafraid to confront someone. Even police call for backup in similar situations.”
“We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch,” he said. “When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody.
And earlier today, Trayvon’s parents spoke at a National Action Network press conference where they vowed that their son’s death would not be in vain.
