Sanford Florida – Reverend Al Sharpton, who’s Mother had died the night before, delivered a powerful speech to a massive crowd at a rally for justice in the Trayvon Martin case. Estimates put the crowd, dressed in hoodies, at around 25 – 30 thousand.
Finally it seems there is some movement with Gov. Rick Scott ordering an independent investigation, the chief of police stepping aside, and the FBI conducting their own investigation. The Florida grand jury will be convened but that won’t be until April and the people are restless. The people are demanding justice and the arrest of George Zimmermann, not tomorrow, but now.
Our condolences go out to to Rev. Sharpton, and to the parents of Trayvon Martin who all showed amazing strength yesterday.
