Wordless Wednesday: New Mug Shot for George Zimmerman

"We are still devastated by the loss of our son Trayvon Martin, and nothing can bring him back. But today, we are heartened to tell you that justice may finally be served for Trayvon.

This evening, Florida State Attorney Angela Corey announced that she will charge George Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder, weeks after he confessed to killing Trayvon -- and now he's in custody.

For weeks after Trayvon was killed, authorities refused to arrest Zimmerman. We couldn't believe that in 2012, public officials would turn a blind eye to our son's killing. We couldn't let that happen.

More than 2 million people joined our call for Zimmerman's arrest.

We are so much closer to justice with the decision to bring charges against our son’s killer. We feel less alone knowing that so many people stood with our family during this impossible time.
When Trayvon was just nine, he ran into a burning house to save his father's life. He may be gone, but he is still our hero. We are so thankful to all of you who fought to honor his memory.

Thank you for standing with us, and with Trayvon."

- Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton

Finally..Justice is partially served...I didn't think for awhile that Zimmerman would ever be arrested. As late as Monday, I was certain he had fled.

This is only the beginning...Now let's see what happens in court!

They should give this man a medal for standing up for himself and his neighborhood. It's growing tiresome to see these young black teens in the streets of our cities robbing innocent people and burglarizing the homes and vehicles of honest, hard-working people. Thugging has become the trendy thing to do because of today's media and these kids purposely go out and target white middle to high class neighborhoods for their crimes.
