Group dedicates Trayvon Martin memorial in Sanford
WFTV ^ | July 28, 2013

Posted on 07/28/2013 6:06:13 AM PDT by kevcol



VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- A group of Trayvon Martin supporters walked from Jacksonville to Sanford, where they dedicated a memorial for the teen at a museum late Saturday afternoon.

The demonstrators arrived in Sanford late Friday, ending what they called the "Walk for Dignity," which started in Jacksonville.

The group held a community forum Saturday afternoon, followed by a dedication of the Trayvon Martin memorial at the Goldsboro Westside Historical Museum.

"The most important reason why we're here, we want a system that treats us equally," marcher Estefania Galvis said.

The group's six-day walk from Jacksonville to Sanford was organized to bring awareness of what it believes are injustices due to laws relating to stand your ground. It's an issue that hasn't quit since Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder in Martin's death.

Additionally, the group is calling for the resignation of State Attorney Angela Corey, who was the special prosecutor in the George Zimmerman case.

"She is the representative of the system that has failed us. That's the first step, we want a new system," Galvis said.

The marchers also went door-to-door in the Sanford community earlier on Saturday to egage and connect with local residents.

Hate to be cynical, but I don’t see anyone in that photo who looks capable of walking from Jacksonville to Sanford.

I think it was General Sheridan that said “The only good Travon is a dead Trayvon”

He would be saddened by all the hoopla

What a bunch of damned idiots. If he had gone home, he would still be alive. Instead; he had to attack Zimmerman, who defended himself. End of story. Charges shouldn’t have been brought in the first place.

Those paving stones are excellent. If you were to bang someone’s head against them, you could probably do some serious damage.

Why is an historical museum giving Trayvon Martin a memorial? If I start a fight and get shot do I get a memorial? Who’s funding it?

Let me guess....it's a collection of women's jewelry (including several wedding rings) along with a "burglary tool".

Very fitting indeed!

I'm a little confused.

Is that his grave? The article says "memorial" so... I don't know quite what it looks like.

Also, it appears to be behind a house, in the backyard, although the article says it's located at a museum of some sorts.

Surely the walk from Jacksonville was symbolic. As in, they walked to the vans that drove them.

Well they did walk to the bus and from the bus to that wonderfully conceived memorial.

The people who built this memorial are - in effect - voting for the installation of hundreds of times more video cameras than we have at present.

Thousands of young black males are gunned down every year by other young black males. In addition, hundreds of innocent black kids, male and female, are caught in crossfires by black thugs and killed. Where are the memorials for those innocent black children? The whole deification of Trayvon Martin would be laughable if things weren’t already so sad and depressing.

St. Trayvon is a regular money making machine for mom and dad.

Do they charge admission yet?

Are they selling “Official Trayvon Memorial Bags Of Skittles” at the memorial?

I wonder if they have incorporated the St. Trayvon Foundation yet.

The next Trayvon Martin memorial should depict him straddling a supine George Zimmerman while raining blows down on him with upraised fists.

A loyal group of Obamabots heeding Michelle Obama’s advice on proper diet and weight control (not)!!! This what you look like when you get up at 12:00 noon everyday to collect your welfare check, food stamps and get a little weed, etc.!!! A clear vision of what America will become in the Obama paradise. One hitch...of course....when the Obama “stash” runs out, and, it will run out, these folks are gonna taste reality like they never have before. Sad commentary on America!!!

Until Zimmerman with his legal team speak up and start firing back and getting the truth out there and filing those law suits this BS is going to keep on and on and on in the media. Now, in the black community the truth doesn't matter anyway because, a large portion or spiteful racists with a victim mentality. Even if they know Trayvon was a thug in training and definitely attacked first and was beating a man, they don't care. They just don't. In their small warped heads that's okay because Zimmerman had the nerve to profile poor St. Trayvon. In their mind it's fine to do whatever to a non-black because they deserve it for years of “institutional racism.”
This is a psychosis that I don't see ending especially since it works on those in power and of course with the media.

However it would help if Zimmerman and Co. fought back and stomped out some of this craziness especially the media's part.

Unless they have a real (recent) picture of Martin this thing is just a lie to me. They should be showing the innocent looking 11-12 year old Martin beside a picture of the 17 year old Martin and be asking what happened to him.

What would such a memorial need?

1) A Purple Drank dispenser.

2) Gangsta Rap music on loudspeakers.

3) A pronunciation guide to “black gutter lingo” for white liberals.

4) A petition for the police to no longer arrest black yoots for any offense at all.

5) A “racial guilt” admission fee for whites, Hispanics, Indians, Asians, and those who are less than 25% black.

War is peace.

Freedom is slavery.

Trayvon Martin was simply buying skittles.

Article says it took them 6 days.

20+ miles in a day is a pretty darn good pace, especially in a FL summer. Keeping it up for 6 days requires that you be in excellent condition.

I suspect “the group walked,” if indeed they did at all, in the sense that they took turns walking one or two at a time while the others stayed in vehicles with AC.

“If Trayvon was not shot dead he would be in jail.”

Ironically, if Trayvon had survived, Zimmerman would have ended up going to jail. A wounded Martin on the witness stand would have hurt Zimmerman.
