Trayvon martin, a boy who was simply walking by, and Zimmerman, who was armed and ready to take fire. How do you think this turned out? Well of course, the man shot the boy! The young boy who was merely walking back home from the convenience store when Zimmerman felt threatened when Trayvon didn’t even have any weapons. It only took the hoodie and the fact that Trayvon was black to make Zimmerman nervous. And now that Trayvon is dead, the Hispanic isn’t even going to jail because of a law.
“The racial tensions simmering over the Trayvon Martin case reached new heights last week when surveillance footage taken after the shooter’s arrest showed no apparent signs of a physical struggle. But an enhanced version of the police video released Monday shows what looks like a gash in the back of the head of the shooter, George Zimmerman, Orlando Sentinel is reporting.“
So if they have video footage on the scene, why not believe it? a video has no feelings, a video doesn’t become pressurized and it also doesn’t get scared on what might happen to it. And so I think that the video footage is enough to make Mr. Zimmerman go to Jail. The people have footage of a the scene and that there was no physical struggle. And then the Police provide a video that shows the Shooter having an injury. I would like to know when that video was taken and how did he get the gash. There is physical evidence that shows that Trayvon didn’t do it. Zimmerman could have just as well hit himself to place blame on the kid. I am not surprised the the video they found last week contradicted Zimmerman’s words. Whether you do or not, you can only call this manslaughter which he should be charged for. Think about it. Could a 28 year old man who has a gun really be pummeled by a boy who is only of the age 17 and unarmed with any weapon of the sort? The boy only wanted to go to the convenience store for god sake! I even heard that Zimmerman was a former police officer, so if he really was then he’d have experience with fights and the sort.
“Zimmerman has not been charged with the killing, but state and federal investigators are probing the case.Controversy erupted after the footage, obtained by ABC News, surfaced because Zimmerman appeared unhurt.But ABC News then hired Forensic Protection, a video enhancement firm, to zoom in closely on Zimmerman. There was no blood visible on Zimmerman’s clothing, but he appeared to have a gash on the back of his head. He had no injuries on his nose, even though his lawyer says he suffered a broken nose during the scuffle.”
Scuffle? What scuffle? Once again, another lie. There was no injury to his nose and he could have possibly had that gash from before and if there was to be a gash, you would think some blood might have come out and they said there was no blood on his clothing. Shouldn’t there be footage of his head getting gashed? If there really was a fight or if he really got a gash from the fight then look at all the tapes. So far none have said anything about that. And you can never believe a someone’s lawyer when it’s plain obvious that the lawyer told a lie about the Zimmerman’s nose breaking. I have a few words of advice for you, Judge; Do Not Trust The Lawyer Without Any Evidence.
“This weekend, thousands marched through Sanford, the Central Florida town where the shooting occurred last February. On Sunday in Miami, where Martin was from, political leaders, sport stars and entertainers joined several thousand protesters to call for Zimmerman’s arrest.”
As you can clearly read, this is no laughing matter. Political officers, Sport stars and thousands of other people are wanting this man in Jail and I am one of them. I think the government should repeal the law that is protecting this man. They have even started a petition. I would also sign it if I were able to. You should too! https://www.change.org/petitions/congress-we-want-the-freedom-to-buy-skittles-without-getting-shot

In school, there comes a time when should be able to think for ourselves and let us have a say on what you do to this school. We have been under your rule and we respect you for taking care of us and the school itself but we would like to explain why we are moving away from you and rely on our skills as a student and our brilliant ideas to try to make this school more fun, educational, and safe.
Even though you’re a Principal and we are students, we are still equal and you can’t stop us from making decisions that would enhance our happiness. If you try to stop us, we will leave this school and find one that will let us find the happiness we are looking for. Of course, we can’t leave for petty things. We will thoroughly think through our decisions and make sure we can all live with it but if our ideas are ignored, if our ideas have been smashed, or if our ideas towards happiness are stopped, we may leave. We will leave and take responsibility to find another school to go to.
You, sir, have made us wear these lanyards and ID cards that aren’t appealing to people and don’t wear so it’s only another useless object. You have put Advisory time before lunch,causing almost everyone to be extremely hungry by the time they head out the classroom door. We are made to wait after our 3rd class of the day. We were perfectly content last year, why change it this year? Looking back at last year, we remember our cafeteria and the Black Cat we miss so much. It was a good system. We paid up at the cash register and there was plenty of food. The food was also not as expensive as it is this year. Another thing is that you have deprived us of time. When we decided to come to this school, we agreed that we would have class for an hour and ten minutes. Sir, you might think that staying in class for a minute more or three is no problem but you have only given us five minutes to get from one class to another and so if you let the teachers delay us and then we must go to our locker and put our stuff away and take our needed material out for the next class. By the time we arrive to the class, we are marked tardy and punished. I speak for everyone that this is something that must not go on and it must not be us to blamed upon. What we also don’t think is right is that we are constantly punished to have electronics like phones and ipods during class or even after school. Some teachers let us have them for listening to but with phones, even some teachers tell us we can’t have it and then they confiscate them. We have talked to the teachers many times about this and they have done nothing to help. In the cafeteria we had learned about a suggestion box and so we told them what we could possibly change for our lunchtime to be more enjoyable yet nothing has changed or been mentioned. Everyone had rejected wearing the lanyards and were not happy about it and yet again; nothing has changed. All of us have talked to teachers, our guidance counselor as well, and still no change has been made. Maybe they changed the amount of time we had for classes but that’s all that has been altered. Everyone was upset by that too! Which leads me back to my point. We should have a voice in what you decide for the school. Let us tell you what would make us happy. And we have! But you have ignored them. and so what are we to do?
Us students have been ignored by you and your faculty for a long period of time. We are the ones who are learning here and if we have a problem that the whole student body is not fond of, we expect to see some changes or hear something about the situation. We have heard dead silence. We, the students, are here to say, that we would like to leave and move away from your rule and power. We are breaking up.
We are an international school and people from all around say that we should leave you. We should be able to have a say. we should be able to have power, we should be able to decide the location of events sometimes like you can do. Again, I bet you’re saying “You have the student council who can contact me.” Ha! Not only middle school but in highschool you ignored us. Again, with all due respect, I would like to mention the fact that you had lightened the high schoolers spirits and then brought them down after changing your mind. And students have talked to the student council and I bet they have mentioned our situations to you, sir, but, for the third time, no changes have been made. We have seen no alterations except for the ones that causes our grievances. We want to become independent and we shall break up with you. Hopefully we can be friends in the future but we shall never forget your school and what you were depriving us from.
My 4th quarter goal is to achieve at least a A- or more on my next test in Science. I would like to improve to achieve this because I can improve on my note taking skills and also improve on science. Getting an A- will only measure on how well I can use my time and take notes. I somewhat struggle sometimes to interpret the information that is given to us in Science class and if I persevere and really put effort into attaining for this goal, I know I’ll have better student skills than I do now.
