I really didn't.
I can't stay silent anymore.
I have caught snidbits of the trial here and there.
I refuse to watch it 24/7 like the wifey is doing. I refuse to watch because to me this whole thing is a damn joke.
And it pisses me off.
The prosecution never wanted this murder trial in the first place and from what I can tell, it shows. They are not even trying to do their jobs. They are not prepping their witnesses..They are not objecting to shit that they should object to and they are letting the defense just tear them apart.
I don't like it..but I am not surprised.
This boy's prior bad acts have nothing to do with him getting killed. His prior drug use has nothing to do with him getting killed. His getting suspended from school has nothing to do with him getting killed. His right to defend his self against a rogue wannabe flashlight cop is not what got him killed. As far as I can tell, he was living exactly how a teenager in today's world lives. He was rebellious...He thought he was invincible...He thought he was going to live forever.
He was not a criminal..He was not a "thug". He was a TEENAGER. Doing TEENAGE shit.
What got him killed is his SKIN.
His skin that America thinks is an automatic reason to distrust someone.
That is what got Travon Martin killed. He was killed by a punk bytch ass failure, that wanted to prove to the local fuzz that they should have never passed him over.
So I am not surprised that the trial is going the way it is. I will not be mad or upset when this bytch walks out of the courthouse to the applause of his family, friends and his fellow Americans.
I am not surprised.
This is the "norm" for America.
This is what we do here in the land of the "free".
Black people in this country are Guilty until proven not so guilty.
