Million Hoodie March Protests Killing Of Unarmed Teen

( 4UMF NEWS ) Million Hoodie March Protests Killing Of Unarmed Teen:

The parents of the unarmed black Florida teenager slain three weeks ago by an overzealous neighborhood watchman joined a “million hoodie” march in Union Square Wednesday demanding the shooter’s arrest.

“Our son is your son,” Trayvon Martin’s mom Sabrina Fulton told a big crowd.

“This is not a black and white thing. This is a right and wrong thing.”

The demonstrators burst into a chant of “Justice for Trayvon!”

“My heart is in pain. But seeing the support from all of you, really makes a difference,” she said.

Demonstrators wearing hoodies took turns calling out “Am I suspicious?”

Jumaane Williams, the city councilman arrested during last year’s West Indian Parade, said, “I know I’m black. I reek of Brooklyn. But I’m not a criminal. I’m a city councilman. Some of us are doctors. Some of us are President of the United States of America. Our blood is not cheap.”

As national anger over the shooting grows, MSNBC host and civil-rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton planned a rally Thursday in Sanford, Fla., the Orlando suburb where the 17-year-old was killed Feb. 26 by 28-year-old George Zimmerman.

Martin’s parents were in New York for a blizzard of TV appearances campaigning for Zimmerman’s arrest and the resignation of the Sanford police chief.

“He’s a fun-loving guy. He likes to be with his family and his friends,” Fulton said on MSNBC, unable to use the past tense about her boy.

Tracy Martin recounted how his son, when he was nine, saved him from a house fire. “He almost gave his life for me. I won’t stop until I get justice for him,” Martin said.

Facing a rising tide of criticism, Sanford city commissioners voted 3-2 on Wednesday that they had no confidence in police Chief Bill Lee.

Lee took over only ten months ago when the previous chief resigned amid an outcry over his refusal to arrest a cop’s son who beat up a black homeless man.

Also Wednesday, the Sanford city manager put out a letter saying the cops could not arrest Zimmerman because of Florida’s controversial 2005 Stand Your Ground law, which allows people to shoot anyone they believe is threatening them.

“Law enforcement was PROHIBITED from making an arrest based on the facts and circumstances they had at the time,” City Manager Norton Bonaparte wrote.

“The Sanford Police Department has conducted a complete and fair investigation of this incident,” he added.
