Martin Family Attorney Speaks Out

Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, told CNN Anchor Kate Bolduan that the family is processing the not guilty verdict for George Zimmerman, and will be talking about further legal action soon. Crump added that because he thinks racial profiling took place, the Justice Department should investigate.

When Bolduan asks if Trayvon Martin’s parents will pursue a civil lawsuit, Crump responds, “We’ll be talking about all of that in the days to come. Right now they are trying to make sense of this criminal verdict. As Sabrina Fulton said, we have to roll up our sleeves because even though we’ve come a long way, we’ve got a long way to go to make sure that this doesn’t happen to anybody else’s child, especially after this verdict.”

    This is a big shame to all blacks in the united state and also to the black community all over the world. The time has reach when all blacks should stand up and fight for their right. Am asking the family to be patient and wait, the truth will soon come out, no matter haw many years it takes. America has started shown its true colour.
