George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer accused of murdering Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in February 2012, has been cleared of all charges by a Florida jury.
No. My heart is with Sybrina Fulton, Rachel Jeantel, everyone who loved Trayvon and has been sent the message that his life didn't matter.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 14, 2013

I see they found Trayvon Martin guilty of being black in the wrong place. Sentence already carried out.— Tom Sutcliffe (@tds153) July 14, 2013
Stand you ground? So what ground was Trayvon entitled to & on what ground could he defend himself? http://t.co/FYPZCQr9ld— Gary Younge (@garyyounge) July 14, 2013

Fuck state-sanctioned murder, fuck mass incarceration, and fuck a culture that has it out for millions of kids just like Trayvon Martin.— Lindy West (@thelindywest) July 14, 2013
If Zimmerman hadn't been so racist, Trayvon wouldn't have been killed that night. And if Trayvon had been white, Zimmerman would be in jail.— Dr. Yasir Qadhi (@YasirQadhi) July 14, 2013
