Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton is running for office
2019-05-20
[NYPOST] The mother of Trayvon Martin is running for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, the Miami Herald reported Saturday.

Since the death of her 17-year-old son, Sybrina Fulton has been advocating for social justice and an end to gun violence.

Martin was shot to death in 2012 by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch member in Sanford, Fla.

Zimmerman was charged with murder, but was acquitted after claiming he fired in self-defense.

Fulton said she’s not anti-gun, but wants better gun-control measures, including more background checks.
How about apologizing for raising that POS?

#11  ^ "Yeah, that... and Mother's Day, b-tch.

And don't you dare mess wit my bidness
Or question my motherly fitness,
Cuz Fruit and me did
All we could for that kid,
[long redaction], as gawd is my witness!"

#10  Is this because Sybrina did such a good job in raising Trayvon that she wants to share her wisdom with the world?

#9  Interesting piece (Vice, May 2017) on his older brother (not endorsing it as reportage, of course, just as "window into the soul" (of what... you tell me ;-))).

#8  This miss who raised Trayvon is pissed!
"No vicious young man with a fist,
Despising society,
Should suffer anxiety,
Or ever suspect himself dissed!"

Wikipedia bio's an even more impressive catalog of fallacious weaselry than I remembered. Talk page must be a riot... but I'm not feeling immortal today.

#6  ....body of George Zimmerman was found with severe head wounds, and that police were still looking for his killer.

Also still looking for the motive. Don't forget the motive.

#5  If George Zimmerman hadn't had a gun, no one outside of the local area would have ever heard of Trayvon Martin. There would have been a story about how the body of George Zimmerman was found with severe head wounds, and that police were still looking for his killer.

#4  The only thing missing in the headline is Trayvon Martin's martyred mother is running for office. Is she running as a Dem?
