We’ve all been pretty heated about the shooting of Trayvon Martin case. So much so that the Black Panther Party had a $10,000 bounty put out on Zimmerman who decided to go into hiding because excessive death threats. After State Attorney Angela Corey decided not to use a grand jury, she decided to charge Zimmerman with the murder of Martin. Here’s what they had to say at abc.com:
"The prosecutor’s ruling is certain to provoke controversy in Sanford, Fla., where shooting took place and across the country.
Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed Martin, who was 17 and black, on Feb. 26 after following the teenager for several minutes.
The special prosecutor’s ruling came one day after Zimmerman’s legal team quit because they had lost contact with him, and suggested that the pressure of the case had “pushed him over the edge.”
His lawyers said that Zimmerman was no longer in Florida and ABC News has learned that prosecutors do not know his exact location.
Earlier this week, Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett said his city has become a ‘kindling box’ due to the high emotions surrounding the case, and that he would ‘plan for the worst and hope for the best.”

Personally I’m happy the prosecutor decided to charge Zimmerman with murder. According to all the evidence revealed to the public Trayvon was innocent and the story hits a sensitive spot for me because I have a little brother his age so I can only imagine what his parents are going through. Charging Zimmerman with murder won’t bring Trayvon back but I’m sure his family will find some police in the charges. 3GM will be sure to follow the case and keep you updated.
