Posse holds march for Trayvon Martin injustice

By Amanda Ayers

News Editor

On Wednesday night, Posse held a march and discussion against the injustice committed in Florida’s recent Trayvon Martin case.  On Feb. 26, George Zimmerman killed Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American, in Sanford, Fla. Students met at the Seventh Street House where a statement was read about Martin, and then they marched around campus with various signs demanding justice. The event ended with an open discussion for students to voice their opinions.

Posse advertised the event with this slogan: “We are marching to raise awareness of the injustice that has been committed and that we will not stand for this.”

    Y’all missed the part where beloved Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman FIRST! The broken nose, head gash (from where Trayvon slammed Zimmerman’s head into the sidewalk), and grass stains on the back of Zimmerman’s shirt (from where Trayvon beat Zimmerman while he was on the ground) coupled with the eyewitness account of the incident were enough to satisfy the police, who deemed the shooting was a case of self defense.

    I’m really sick of this “paper” only posting one side of a story and not caring about whether you get any of the facts right. Sensationalism sells though, doesn’t it?
