QUOTE OF THE DAY |
“We are saddened and disappointed by this decision. It is a pattern involving young black men that is too often repeating itself. In my view the American legal system has once again failed justice. The jury, no black and no men, was always suspect. [...] The whole world observed this painful conclusion. Every avenue in the law was watching. I hope that no one will compound our pain with street justice. It will do damage to the innocent blood and legacy of Trayvon Martin. [...] The struggle for fairness and justice is not over. Justice will come to those who continue to struggle for it. We continue to pray for the parents of Trayvon Martin and we urge them to remain prayerful and to stay strong.”
