1 Year After the Murder of Treyvon Martin, Have Hoodie Marches Changed Anything? [POLL]
It’s been one year since the killing of Treyvon Martin, and his parents are planning a memorial in his honor at Union Square this evening at 6 p.m. They are requesting that everyone wears hoodies.
Take a look back at that horrific evening in Florida, when Treyvon was labeled a thug by George Zimmerman and murdered. The young man’s murder sparked outrage in the black community and spawned hoodie marches throughout the land to protest the murder and the “stand your ground” law in the state of Florida.
So now with the trial set for June and the family of Treyvon beginning the process of hopefully getting some justice and closer in this case, have things gotten better or worse? Is progress being made towards changing laws as they relate to “stand your ground” laws?
