Hundreds Rally In NYC For Trayvon Martin
  • Hundreds of people gathered in New Yorks Union
    Square Sunday afternoon to protest the acquittal
    of George Zimmerman, who was exonerated by a jury
    Saturday night of all criminal charges in
    connection with the shooting death of unarmed
    teenager Trayvon Martin last year in Sanford,
    Fla.
  • The diverse crowd came together to speak out
    against what they overwhelmingly saw as a
    miscarriage of justice in the Zimmerman case,
    while calling for action and changes to the
    criminal-justice system and racial understanding
    in the U.S.
  • The rally, organized by a grassroots coalition of
    civil-rights groups, ordinary citizens and
    political leaders, was an opportunity for people
    upset about the outcome of the trial to express
    their views and plan for the future.
  • The event, featuring two separate protests,
    remained peaceful throughout the afternoon
    despite the high tensions over the verdict, in
    clear defiance of vocal observers, police
    officials and politicians who had predicted
    widespread violent protests in the event
    Zimmerman were acquitted.
  • The central protest featured a lineup of
    prominent civil-rights leaders and politicians
    who spoke effusively about the need to organize
    in the wake of the trial to improve the state of
    American race relations and their intersection
    with the nations legal system.

Feds Look To Charge Zimmerman
  • The U.S. Justice of Department is now
    investigating the shooting death of Trayvon
    Martin meaning, if slapped with federal
    charges, George Zimmerman could face jail time
    even after his not guilty verdict.
  • The DOJ issued a statement Sunday revealing
    they are looking into the case, evaluating the
    evidence (including testimony from the State
    trial) and will determine whether or not
    federal prosecutors should file criminal civil
    rights charges against Zimmerman.
  • Heres why its important Zimmerman was found
    not guilty on Saturday of both second-degree
    murder and manslaughter when tried by the State
    of Florida and is technically a free man.
  • But since the news broke civil-rights activists
    have been up in arms?, like Al Sharpton and the
    NAACP who are clamoring for the DOJ to bring
    civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
  • If the Feds decide to go through with new
    criminal charges then a jail sentence is back
    on the table.
  • Although, according to legal experts, it will be
    an uphill battle to prove in court that Zimmerman
    was motivated solely by race.

Mark OMara If George Zimmerman Were Black
Video
  • In the hours following the George Zimmerman trial
    verdict being released, both the defense and
    prosecuting attorneys answered questions about
    the trial and their reactions to the jurys
    decision.
  • As expected the defense team had some
    questionable things to say, especially attorney
    Mark OMara.
  • Although being advised to leave race out of this
    entire ordeal, O Mara remarked that if his
    client were black, he never wouldve been
    charged with a crime.
  • He continues
  • It seems as though what happened was an event
    that was being looked into by the Sanford Police
    Department, and quite honestly, as we now know,
    looked into quite well. I have taken advantage of
    police departments who have not gone a good
    investigation of crimes because thats what I do
    for a living. When I looked into Sanford Police
    Department investigation they had done quite a
    good job.
  • OMara adds
  • This became a focus for a civil rights event
    which again is a wonderful event to have. But
    they decided that George Zimmerman would the
    person who they were to blame and use as a
    creation of a civil rights violation, none of
    which was borne out by the facts. The facts that
    night was not borne out that he acted in a racial
    way. His history is a non racist.

President Obama Releases A Statement On Verdict
  • The White House released a statement on Sunday
    afternoon from POTUS in response to the jurys
    decision. Read it in full below The death of
    Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his
    family, or for any one community, but for
    America. I know this case has elicited strong
    passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know
    those passions may be running even higher. But we
    are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I
    now ask every American to respect the call for
    calm reflection from two parents who lost their
    young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves
    if were doing all we can to widen the circle of
    compassion and understanding in our own
    communities. We should ask ourselves if were
    doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence
    that claims too many lives across this country on
    a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as
    individuals and as a society, how we can prevent
    future tragedies like this. As citizens, thats a
    job for all of us. Thats the way to honor
    Trayvon Martin.

40 Killed In Iraq Blast
A series of bombings across Iraq on Sunday left
at least 40 people dead and dozens wounded,
security officials said. In recent months Iraq
has had its worst wave of violence in years. This
month, more than 300 people have been killed,
according to the Interior Ministry. In Karbala,
just before Muslims were breaking their Ramadan
fast in the evening, a blast near a downtown
market killed 9 people and wounded 22 others. Is
this how Muslims exchange the peace of the holy
month of Ramadan? said Jafar Ali, whose leg was
wounded in the blast. Earlier in the day, 11
people were killed and 68 were wounded in Kut,
southeast of Baghdad, when a bomb exploded while
they were shopping in a market, officials said.
When the provincial governor visited the site
after the explosion, angry bystanders threw
stones and shoes at him. In Babil, south of
Baghdad, four people were killed when two car
bombs exploded near a government office,
officials said. In Nasiriya, southeast of the
capital, a car bomb exploded close to a hotel,
killing 2 people and wounding 12 others,
according to a security official. In Falluja,
west of Baghdad, two people walking near a
cemetery were killed by unidentified gunmen, a
security official said.

Allen Iverson Avoids Arrest
  • Wanna get Allen Iverson to pay his child support
    bill? Threaten jail because the ex-NBA star
    finally coughed up the 40,000 he owed his ex
    wife narrowly escaping time in the slammer.
  • TMZ broke the story Iversons ex, Tawanna, has
    been trying to collect child support from the
    b-baller since their divorce was finalized in
    February, but no cigar. Then, last month she
    asked a judge to throw him in jail, if he
    continued to dodge the bill 8,000 / month for
    the last 5 months.
  • In new court docs filed last month in Fulton
    County, GA Iverson said he never paid the money
    because he was led to believe he and Tawanna
    would reconcile.
  • Taking a hard stance a judge ordered Iverson pony
    up the cash within 72 hours or be arrested.
  • The threat apparently worked, Iversons lawyer
    tells TMZ Allen has complied with the order
    and met every term for which he was required.
  • Also hes not in jail.
