| Always remember Trayvon Martin
Rest in Power shows everything that happened before and after Trayvon Martin was murdered by George Zimmerman. Trayvon Martin bought skittles and was on his way home in the rain, so he was wearing a hoodie & walking near the houses so h would not get more wet in the rain. Trayvon was on the phone with his friend and told her a car was following him. She told him to run and he did.

Zimmerman profiled him, followed him , got out of his car and chased Trayvon,,attacked and murdered Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman's 911 call to the police should have been evidence that he was the attacker. Zimmerman's carried a gun and had a history of 911 calls on blacks. Trayvon was unarmed and scared to death !!

The defense attorney humiliated Trayvon's friend, whose testimony was true and Zimmerman should have been convicted. I was ashamed of the people who gave to Zimmerman's defense fund. No blacks were on the jury. Trayvon's screams on the 911 tapes broke my heart.

We attended the press conference the day after the police chief was replaced. I watched the whole trial, every word!!!

God bless Trayvon's family and let's get rid of Stand your Ground; Guns, and racism. Stand your ground allows killers to plead self defense and get away with murder. Trayvon was a 17 year old boy. Racism put him on trial instead of Zimmerman. Thank you for "Rest in Power", a wonderful documentary. Remember Trayvon! I do!!
