Martin verdict an abomination

9:45 AM EDT, July 17, 2013


The Trayvon Martin verdict was a travesty of justice of humongous proportions ("Martin verdict fires debates," July 14). A young, innocent black teenager was profiled, stalked by a cold-blooded racist murderer who killed him and got away with it. Those jurors in Florida should be ashamed of themselves. This is a sad day in America.
