Rev. Al Sharpton calls for ‘National Day of Justice’ for Trayvon Martin

The Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for people across the country to hold “Justice for Trayvon” marches this Saturday in memory Trayvon Martin.

Sharpton said the “action vigils” will be held outside of federal court buildings across the country.

He is asking protesters to demand a push for federal charges against George Zimmerman.

This comes, following a series of protests around the country, including right here in Chicago, reacting to Saturday’s not guilty verdict in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial.

Rallies have been planned for Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and  New York City.

    Enough with this nonsense! Sharpton, are you not a man of God?? What would Jesus do? What vigils or marches have you held for all the blacks being murdered EVERY DAY in Chitcago by other blacks???? What march are you holding for the sweet 8 yr old murdered by her grandmother after years of abuse and malnutrition? What March are you holding for the woman who was beaten so badly, her baby was born stillborn? Why don't you march yourself and all your other headline and camera greedy comrades out of here! You are a discredit and disgrace to all the other called and ordained people of God. How much ink and paper has been wasted on all these signs which will probable end up as litter after all these 'marches'.

        Race baiting is how he earns his living and those who follow him are too dumb to realize they're being used…but it's all good because it gives them a temporary excuse to justify being angry at the world.

    This unfortunate death of Trayvon has been tried in the courts & Zimmerman has been found not guilty. I live in Chicago & there have multiple deaths every week of our young black people getting shot, by their own brothers. Where is justice for these victims? Please leave both of these families heal & concentrate on becoming a better person yourself…….

    That was the day two strangers — Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager walking back with Skittles and an iced tea he’d picked up at 7-Eleven, and George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida — met for the first and only time.

    Trayvon Martin didn’t purchase tea, and he didn’t have tea in his possession when he died. He instead had watermelon fruit cocktail, and that is a significant detail with a difference.

    When mixed with cough syrup, Skittles and this watermelon fruit cocktail formed “purple drank” which appeared to be Trayvon Martin’s favorite way to get high. Taken in high concentrations, the Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide (DHM) is compared to ketamin or PCP.

    They always show this picture of Trayvon. Why not the ones from the stores surveillance tapes. Huge difference. They need to account for it all not just what they want everyone to see

    re Guest61: Very good point! use the photos that trayvon himself posted on YouTube flashing gang signs……anyone protesting the verdict is a racist……that is all there is to it!

    Al Sharpton , Crawl back under the rock you came out from and stay there , Its actions like this that cause more trouble and pain in America today than there needs to be . ???? You have to ask yourself If , George Zimmerman was ,African American , and Trayvon was Caucasian ,??? what type of song would we be singing then ?? My guess no reaction at all …. Stop the Madness !!!!

    Anytime Sharpton, Jackson, or Pfleger show up, you know it's just going to be another sideshow. The "Three Stooges" of media manipulation. I do mean no disrespect to the real Curly, Larry, and Moe.
