In the aftermath of the fatal police shooting of Jerame Reid in Bridgeton, N.J., the father of Trayvon Martin recently made a visit to the town that is grappling with a situation he sadly knows all too well.
Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Tamir Rice were all unarmed Black males killed by the police or a neighborhood watch volunteer. And if the recent decisions in the Martin and Rice cases are any indication, the Justice Department will find it difficult to prosecute the officers for civil rights violations.
Reports indicate George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting in the Lake Mary, Fla. near Orlando on Monday.
