“Let’s get some things straight. Trayvon Martin was shot and killed while viciously physically attacking a man…”
In a recent Miami Herald Op-Ed, the mother of Trayvon Martin—who achieved national fame when her son was shot after he attacked and viciously beat a concealed carry license holder—tries to blame everyone and everything but the real cause. She tried to blame and incorrectly cited the “stand your ground” law in Florida in part for her son’s death, and of course she blames the police, “his killer,” and everyone but the one person who drove all of the events that day—her son.
She, of course, blames race as the major issue. In the article, she says her son was someone “whose life was cut short by someone who decided to shoot first just because of the color of Trayvon’s skin.”
