BREAKING: George Zimmerman sues family of Trayvon Martin, publisher, prosecutors for $100 million https://t.co/6ZicWP0eYT— Miami Herald (@MiamiHerald) December 4, 2019
The suit cites information in a documentary about the case titled “The Trayvon Hoax” that accuses the Martin family of engineering false testimony.
In 2012 George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighboorhood watch volunteer was acquitted of murder charges after following 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a south Florida neighborhood and eventually shooting and killing the young man.
The court trial was a spectacle for all to follow along and was the catalyst to our modern social climate that often illustrates a political white vs black mentality with police shootings and other LEO violence towards black people. Most would say Zimmerman was lucky he is not spending a lifetime in prison for murdering a young man.
