Thanks for the fb link for this guy, maybe his family will also put up a petition on change.org or care2, if they feel that the investigation by the Police is unsatisfactory.
I first heard about Trayvon in an e-mail from his parents due to the petition they put together on change.org. Social media is a great tool for spreading a message.
I must say I am confused as to exactly how these stand your ground laws are supposed to work, it appears to me anyone could actually get away with premeditated murder/reckless homicide or manslaughter .. or perhaps it's just how some police / DA's are interpreting the laws..at any rate we know ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) has been pushing for these laws.. I wonder why a supposed Trade Lobbying Organization is pushing for laws that make getting away with murder much easier ? ..At any rate Wendy's, McDonald's ,Pepsi, Coke, Kraft, Intuit, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have all recently announced that they were ending their memberships.
