Real justice?

Avila BeachJuly 24, 2013 

I believe the death of Trayvon Martin is very sad. I, too, lost a child, not to a shooting but in a car accident. But any family losing a child for any reason knows the pain the Martin family is feeling.

What I don’t understand is how a protest blocking traffic, breaking windows and raiding department stores is getting justice for Trayvon.

And to spend our tax dollars getting our president and our attorney general involved could be better spent on getting better education and jobs for black teens. Will the civilrights leaders work to solve this problem? I sure hope so.
