TX, 7/14/13

PRLF Volunteers and donors,

Greetings to you all! I write you enraged, frustrated, and anguished; but hardly surprised! I took the unjust killing of Trayvon Martin very personal. So, I have been paying strict attention to the George Zimmerman Trial. Once again the Injustice System has stayed true to its form and insidious purpose. I don't know why I allowed myself to entertain even a smidgen of hope that the State of Florida would make that coward Zimmerman pay for Racially Profiling, Stalking, and Murdering Trayvon Martin. I know beyond a reasonable doubt that is what "Georgie" did. I have come to expect the government "pigs" to get away with murdering our Black and Latino teenagers, but now wannabe "pigs" get a free-pass, too! It was sickening to listen to the defense's witnesses paint Zimmerman as this humble do-gooder that was attacked, and feared for his life.

If he was that scary, he should have stay in the safety of his vehicle. But no, he disregarded the 911 dispatcher, got out of his vehicle to stalk and harass Trayvon Martin. Seeing an opportunity to get away with some hero fantasy/fetish he been playing in his mind. Now George will probably be running around the neighborhood with tights, a mask and cape on thinking he is Batman!

Through the entire trial I've listen to Zimmernan's lawyer talk about Zimmerman fearing for his life. Well, what about Trayvon Martin fearing for his life? He was the one getting stalked at night by a 250 pound bigot! You know if it wasn't for Bob Avakian I wouldn't know what to do (that would be constructive) with my anger. But, I do know, and I want all those who don't know to pay attention. If any of you are like me (angry) and want redress; then embrace the Revolution and nothing less!

PRLF volunteers and donors, I love you, guys!

"Definitely" In The Struggle, XXX

Trayvon, you didn't die in vain;
for we shall protest in your name.
Only if you could see, little brother;

And we won't quit, nor rest;

So, Trayvon, Rest In Peace;
and, rest assured, The Struggle won't cease!
